Aquarius
[ Jan 21 to Feb 19 ]
Donít feel shy to build bridges with those having Virgo and Libra as their lunar signs. A truck with a Cancerian or a Piscean is not advisable.
Pisces
[Feb 20 to March 20 ]
Jupiter, your dominant sign-lord, will provoke you to hunt for quick money. Think twice since one or two adventurous planets are also in the run.

Born on

August 6

Your stars promise a bright future. A spate of happy and encouraging news is round the corner. The favours you have shown towards your near ones are likely to build your credibility and even improve your image. There is much to do for you and you may feel a little diffident. It will, however, pay you to focus on specific matters to save energy. This way you will find it more convenient to shrug your shoulders and feel relaxed. Your love stars which have shown no promise so far will start picking up after February.

August 7

A year of mixed trends. Your capacity to spend money will be higher but you will take sufficient care so that the rise of expenditure can be justified. Despite caution, certain unavoidable compulsions, including healthcare and welfare of family members are a must. There are people who like you to spend exorbitantly and lead a carefree life. You should cut your coat according to the cloth.

August 8

Your stars are capable of bringing a glow to your new moves. A year to enlighten yourself with information. Your attention will shift to result-oriented jobs. Mars sighted by the luminous moon is on your side. New ideas will stir your imagination and you will feel stimulated. You will like to go by facts and reject fantasy. November-December are a bit expensive months but you will be able to put your economy on rails from March onwards.

August 9

A sluggish and slow-moving Mercury, sighted by inimical stars, denotes less comfort and more hassles during the year. You may have to involve yourself in such a rough and tough exercise which is at variance with your thinking. Do not react sharply but wait for an appropriate opportunity to opt for something more interesting. Smooth sailing in day-to-day life will be a thing of past. The people you are thrown together with will prove to be a liability rather than an asset.

August 10

A centrally placed Jupiter is occupying a powerful position which will turn the wheel of fortune in your favour. You will give a tough fight to those determined to create hurdles in your way. Friends will be cooperative. If you opt for an electoral battle, success is a foregone conclusion. There will be no dearth of love, laughter and merry-making. You will command respect in every sphere.

August 11

Venus, your lucky star on ascendancy, is all out to help you. Your social, romantic and cultural life will take a turn for the better and increase your popularity. If taking a test or appearing for an interview, you will do well. If working, you will add to your efficiency and win the confidence of high ups. Life will be full of joy. In case of any difference with your colleagues, you must stick to your guns and prove your point.

August 12

A combust Saturn moving at a snailís pace predicts steep expenditure. Despite hard work, there is little hope for you to recover from a financial mess. Your social life will become a burden on your purse during the first quarter. You will remain in two minds during the second. Be prepared for unexpected events at home during the third. A gesture of goodwill extended by a friend during the last one.
