Someone dear to your heart is a joy to be around. They'll blossom in your company, as you will in theirs, and things will go swimmingly between you. However, it will be a different story if one of you feels you aren't getting the attention you need or deserve from the other one. Then you'll be much more demanding and insistent, leading to some tricky moments.
Your willpower has deserted you, leaving you open to every temptation under the sun. Speaking of which, you may decide to forget about the chores and spend the day lying in the sunshine. It's a difficult day if you're supposed to be on a diet or sensible eating regime, because all your good intentions will vanish at the first sniff of a chocolate biscuit.
Make the most of your inquisitive mind today by reading an interesting book, watching a fascinating program on the TV or surfing the web until you can barely see straight. You'll also enjoy getting involved in an intellectual or mind-stretching debate in which you can test your powers of argument and also display a tiny part of your vast store of knowledge.
A certain person is high maintenance today. They may not intend to be like this but they want lots of your attention and they'll become petulant if they don't get it. But don't worry because it won't be nearly such a tricky day as it was yesterday. Be prepared to do some negotiating if you can't give this person your undivided attention. Perhaps you should arrange to do something nice with them later in the week if you can't manage it today?
You're in the mood to increase your knowledge of the world today. You might do this by burying your nose in a book, watching a TV documentary or by visiting a museum or somewhere else that makes you think. If you're teaching yourself a new subject at the moment you'll make some satisfying progress, and whatever you learn will go into your brain and stay there.
This is a fabulous day for having a serious chat with someone, especially if you're prepared to touch on topics that are usually considered to be taboo or too sensitive to mention. You're ready to talk about your deepest feelings, even if you've been bottling them up until now. For some light relief you'll enjoy reading a mystery novel or thriller.
Let's hope you haven't got much to do today because a certain person wants to get in touch with you. And when they do it will be difficult to get away from them because they're in quite a needy mood. It's nothing to worry about but it will help to be aware of what's going on. If you can't spare the time for them today you'll have to arrange to see them later in the week, otherwise you'll be racked with guilt.
You're in a very practical and efficient mood today, making you want to do the very best you can at whatever you tackle. It's good news if you're at work because you'll enjoy showing how reliable and sensible you can be, and what a good brain you've got. It's an excellent day for keeping track of small details and for doing such things as sorting through papers or backing up all the files on your computer.
This is a nice day because you're finding it so easy to get on well with other people. Even if you don't particularly like them, you'll still find something to chat about with them. If you have some spare time you'll enjoy becoming engrossed in a fascinating television program or a book that you can't put down. It will give you lots of food for thought.
If you've been thinking about moving house or doing up your current home, this is an excellent day for checking that things are running smoothly or deciding what your options are.

If you're currently trying to restore the peace with a certain someone, this is a good day for making progress. Be practical and rational, as open displays of emotion won't help your cause. This should be easy for you because you're feeling quite cool, calm and collected. Negotiations go well because you'll be able to keep your head.
You have a lot to say for yourself today, so get together with someone who's happy to listen to you. It's a great day for saying what you think, whether you're doing it in an emotional context or you're talking about work-related topics. If you've got the money you'll be interested in spending it on items that will improve your health in some way.
You need to work out a simple equation, comparing the amount of effort you put into your activities with the amount of satisfaction you get out of them. If you feel you have nothing to show for all your efforts then you must decide what you're going to do about it. You may find that the answer is much simpler than you first imagine.
You're in a really cheerful mood, and you're determined to enjoy yourself at every opportunity. Ideally, that should involve being with some good friends or with one special person. Maybe you could go out on the town together, or have a trip to the cinema? You'll also enjoy being with children or doing something that's slightly silly but great fun.
You long to be with loved ones today and you won't really be happy if you're with anyone else. You'll certainly feel uncomfortable, and possibly even out of your depth, if you have to spend a lot of time with strangers, although luckily you won't give them that impression in the slightest. At some point you'll appreciate being alone, provided that you're in familiar surroundings.
If you haven't yet started to revive your social life, get cracking today. It's great for mixing with people who are on the same wavelength as you, whether they're friends, neighbors or close family. It will also do you good to have a change of scene at some point, especially if you've been stuck in the same place for the past couple of weeks.
You'll be amazed by the amount of work you're able to do today, especially if everyone lets you get on with it in your own time. You want to give a good example and show that you know what you're doing, so you'll take a lot of time and trouble over whatever you're doing. No one will have to redo it again afterwards! There could also be some good news about a pay rise or work perk.
You're in an adventurous and daring mood, and are longing to do something about it. Ideally, you should plan some sort of trip or holiday so you've got something to look forward to. What about arranging a long weekend if you can't go on holiday for a while? You're also in the mood to increase your knowledge in some way, so open your mind to new opportunities and ideas.
You aren't always very good at showing your feelings because sometimes open displays of affection can make you embarrassed and uncomfortable. But today you're ready and willing to tell someone how you feel. You're also prepared to talk about topics that you usually keep to yourself, especially if you consider them to be private or too important to reveal to just anyone.
If you've had to neglect your social life recently because your work has kept you so busy, it's about time that you made amends and got in touch with some of your friends. So who do you have in mind? If you have a partner, don't neglect him or her either. How about arranging a special treat for the two of you, so you can have a good time together.
This is a fantastic day if you're at work because you'll be keen to accomplish much. You won't hang around chatting all day long either, because you're eager to give a good impression to others and to do a really good job. You'll be very pleased about what you've achieved by the time you're ready to pack up and go home. You will be going home, won't you?
This promises to be one of the most enjoyable and satisfying days in August for you, so be prepared to make the most of it. It's ideal for broadening your horizons, whether mentally or physically. You might also be offered a wonderful opportunity, even if it doesn't look all that good at first. Ideally, you should do something sociable too, preferably in the company of some of your favourite people.
You need to devote lots of time to the people you love today, or you'll feel you're missing out in some way. If you can't see some of the special people in your life, at least chat to them on the phone or send them a message so they know you're thinking of them. This is also a good day for sorting out your domestic finances, especially if that involves discussing them with the people who share them.
Today you feel happier when you're with other people than when you're by yourself. It's a good day for being sociable and for getting out and about, so try not to spend the entire day slogging away at work. If you can't avoid it, at least arrange to do something nice later in the week. A discussion or negotiation will go well, because you'll be able to voice your opinions without sounding strident or aggressive.
