Your Friskyscopes For The Week Of August 6-12, 2012

Leo (July 23-August 22): Put your eyes back into focus and see reality for what it is. Time to take charge again, despite the allure of remaining in a state of nostalgia. While emotions will feel extra intense now, it’s more about purging those emotions, rather than trying to start them up. Take one more spin on your fancy ride, and then get yourself back into true form.

Virgo (August 23-September 22): The future is around the corner, so don’t get too antsy or down on yourself about where you are now. If you need the boost, friends will be there for you and if you want them to baby the hell out of you, just say so. When it comes to love, platonic is your best bet — though who knows what some of this groundwork can lead to. Surprises are in store.

Libra (September 23-October 22): If you want to be on top, you just have to think it and assume the position. There is no time to wait for the world to get into place, because you know it doesn’t work like that. If anything, know you will need a broader perspective now, widening your point of view. So, get in the know, and hop aboard.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21): Big things come in strange packages. Expect news to come in from afar that can turn your life around in an intriguing way. This will open up your world and make you understand that what you deserve is way more idealistic and grand than you give yourself credit for. Yes, this is a week when the first thing to swell will be your head, with all else to follow.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21): Go up and beyond for your honey now, as actions speak louder and more effectively than words. Otherwise, going that other route will tangle you up in a silly game of semantics, which can lead to unnecessary drama. Best to cut whatever off at the pass, as it’ll be one of those weeks when showing off your humility will be what turns it out for that special someone.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19): You’ll be feeling the love, but not all may work on demand. So, pull out those fluffer tricks you have up your sleeve and be ready to use your charms; this week it will take some extra effort to hit the highs that really make you feel the hotness. Plus, the good news is that even despite the slow start, the next few weeks will include a grandiose bang.

Aquarius (January 20-February 19): Questions are going to come up and in-depth talks will begin. Watch your words, as they will be setting down a foundation on which your future will be built. Chances are your feelings will change a lot between now and then too, so don’t trap yourself by revealing too many details. Make vague your new black.

Pisces (February 20-March 20): This is a week to pamper yourself and say to hell with the world. Reclaim your power and add some new ideas into your routine, ones that reinforce you as the Queen of your scene. After all, this summer has been a major energy drain and even though you’ve had fun, it doesn’t mean you can’t have something more for just you.

Aries (March 21-April 19): If you want dirt on your latest piece, dig for the roots — as in their family. This is the time to work it in good with them by showing your curiosity. Chances are embarrassing stories will surface and a new humbling side to your boo will be uncovered, giving you a way more relaxed attitude about who really is the cooler one in your relationship.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): Things are going to be a bit shaky this week, making you have to own up to certain feelings you’ve been having, good and bad. While you could sweep them under the rug, why torture yourself by delaying the inevitable? Confront issues with that other and own up to what you want to happen from here on out. The world isn’t fair, so don’t leave yourself up to its whims — pursue action now!

Gemini (May 21-June 20): Don’t play the blame game, because there’s no point to it. You need to be three steps ahead of yourself now, so no time to dawdle and feel blue about circumstances that can’t be changed. Besides, if you wait it out a little more, you’ll see you wouldn’t want anything now to be different. Trust in the moment by moving towards a new one.

Cancer (June 21-July 22): Love is your motivation, so go ahead, be a hedonist. Whatever your whim, follow it, as it’s in indulging yourself that you will be led to destiny. Yes, follow the tasty crumbs, even if it seems like you can’t swallow them, because this maze isn’t so easy and will give you moments of doubt. Push through, because your ultimate prize awaits.
