ASTROLOGY: For the week of August 16 – August 22, 2014

ASTROLOGY: For the week of August 16 – August 22, 2014

By Sun Lee Chang
Northwest Asian Weekly

Rat — Starting to feel like you have it all figured out? Hold on, for you are about to find out that there are more lessons to learn.

Ox — Be careful about showing too much eagerness. You do not want to show your hand before the deal is done.

Tiger — Have your actions been misinterpreted recently? Rather than keeping quiet, clear the air by articulating the feelings behind the deeds.

 

Rabbit — Are you nervous about an upcoming meeting? It will be well worth your time to do your homework beforehand.

Dragon — Some arguments don’t merit your attention or participation. There is no shame in opting out when appropriate.

Snake — Use the resources you have available to their best advantage. You will likely have more at your disposal than you originally thought.

Horse — As the moment of truth approaches, you are having second thoughts. Working through your doubts will go a long way in easing your fears.

Goat — If you have been lucky enough to find the winning formula, then by all means put it to use more than once.

Monkey — A stroke of good fortune has been bestowed upon you. All that remains is to make the most of it.

Rooster — A major purchase looms ahead of you. Ask yourself whether it is something you merely desire or a true necessity.

Dog — Do you feel as though you are on the cusp of a big breakthrough? Maintain your momentum and push on.

Pig — In a quest to get the job done, you may have overdone it recently. Make it a priority now to get some deserved rest.

What’s your animal sign?
