Weekly predictions: 4th Aug to 10th Aug

You may face high levels of stress, so take care, reveal the astrologers at GaneshaSpeaks. Be calculated, rational and yet positive, while dealing with your challenges this week.

Aries ( 21st March to 20th April ) : There may be an ulterior motive to your enhanced understanding and a newly adopted communicative approach this week. You will be all charm at work now. While people may feel that you are being caring and friendly, your real purpose shall actually be to get your work done at the earliest, without any hassles. This week, even though you may gain financially, you may not feel satisfied. You would actually think that you deserve more, considering the efforts that you have put in. Your personality may undergo some positive changes. Naturally, attracting the members of the opposite sex shall not be a problem for you. Keep your discretionary shoes on, though, reminds Ganesha. You may also be inclined towards charity work. Go ahead! This is also a favourable time to invest in property.

Taurus ( 21st April to 21st May ) : Full of zest and enthusiasm, you shall reach every target of yours with great ease this week. You will take all the issues affecting your personal or professional life head on, and shall try to settle them, feels Ganesha. In this process, you may also take into consideration the viewpoint of your family members and this shall help you get effective solutions to your problems. Regarding your professional life, you will adopt a firm attitude in all the decisions concerning your work. This attribute of yours, combined with your excellent managerial skills, will prove to be beneficial for you - even in the long run. Also, avoid travel this week, if possible. Instead try to invest all your free time while having fun with your family life. Rejuvenate yourself in the company of your loved ones.

Gemini ( 22nd May to 21st June ) : You may be somewhat distracted from your path, this week, and may not be much interested in your work, observes Ganesha. In fact, you are likely to be more inclined to interfere in the lives of others. The main reason for this can be that you may have gotten bored of your current assignments, and have been wanting to do something fresh and exciting. One way to counter this trend is to develop a hobby of yours that can keep you interested and occupied. However, you may not be able to sustain your interest even in this hobby of yours, and again become restless. As a result, you may get easily irritated, and may even enter spats with your loved ones. Take it easy, and look for newer avenues - that shall keep you busy and happy.

Cancer ( 22nd June to 22nd July ) : It is high time that you reviewed the way in which you spend your hard earned money, says Ganesha. Even though you are generally wise in money matters, and and don't engage in unnecessary expenditures, you still need to re-analyse your spending habits. This is because, off late, you may have been spending too much on your ungrateful friends, who don't even value your generosity. So, instead of blowing up your hard earned money on fickle people or causes, plan well and spend your money on something productive. Or, even better, save and invest. As far as your relationships are concerned, you tend to expect too much from your partner. Consequently, your partner may not be able to live up to your high expectations, resulting in you being disappointed. Weekend promises to bring a dash of romance!

Leo ( 23rd July to 22nd August ) : As the week begins, you shall be in high spirits, but soon the work pressure on you may become overwhelming. You may face high levels of stress, so take care. Chances are that you may show least interest in your work, desiring to shun it all, running away from the drag and monotony. You would badly want to spend some peaceful moments away from the hustle and bustle of your busy schedule. In the realm of your personal life, you may crave for the company of someone who truly understands your nature, and with whom you can open up and share everything, feels Ganesha. Also, you shall be conscious of the kind of image you project in the social gatherings and parties, and hence you will make all the efforts to spruce up your act. Reaping the rewards of the past investments is also on the cards.

Virgo ( 23rd August to 22nd September ) : Your domestic life takes the centre-stage, as the week begins. You yourself shall be in high spirits, and shall use your logical and analytical powers to persuade others to give up their negative approach, feels Ganesha. You will also try to root out the problems you have been facing in your family life. However, this is not going to be a cakewalk for you, since all of this requires a lot of effort and will power. All this strenuous activity shall leave you fatigued, and you may not have adequate energy to give your best on the work front. Whatever be the case, avoid being overcritical of your partner, otherwise you may have to face problems. On the financial front, brace up for some unexpected expenditures, as you may face a liquidity crunch. Health issues may also bother you during the course of this week, so be careful. Avoid eating out, warns Ganesha.

Libra ( 23rd September to 22nd October ) : Not all times are the same, and not all days are pleasant. This week may begin on a low note, or you may receive an unhappy news. This may distress you, and you may wish to rather erase the memory of this week from your mind. However, as the week progresses, you shall start getting better - mentally and physically. Determined that you are, you shall make all efforts to cope with this situation, and come out tops. On the work front, things are going to get hectic, as apart from your routine responsibilities, you may have to take on some additional responsibilities, which may not fall under the purview of your work. Hence, all this negativity and hectic work may affect your morale adversely. In order to lift your sagging spirits, engage yourself in some alternate activities that may bring some positivity in your life. A change of environment shall help, says Ganesha.

Scorpio ( 23rd October to 22nd November ) : The planetary influences may not be all that happy this week, making you rather negative and vindictive in your approach. You may feel angry and irritated with the current goings-on, but suggests Ganesha - curb this tendency, as it won't help you in any way. Plus, if you continue to remain as negative as you have been lately, you would feel as if all your energy and zest has been sapped. So, it's best that you release your pent up feelings and channelise them into some positive thing - a creative hobby maybe. Even though it is not an easy task, it will help you to deal with the problems you are facing. You are also advised not be judgemental towards others, and set aside your biases. This will help you overcome any difficulties in your relationships with others.

Sagittarius ( 23rd November to 21st December ) : You need to keep an open, optimistic and positive approach, while dealing with challenges and adversities, advises Ganesha. This will make you better equipped in dealing with problematic situations, and shall also brace you up for facing any challenge. On the professional front, don't bother yourself about petty issues and try to maintain a balanced approach. No troubles on the financial front are foreseen, but you should definitely think about securing your future/old age by make some long term investments. On the personal front, you shall have a gala time with the members of the opposite sex. To soothe your overtaxed nerves, you may plan a short excursion with your loved ones, or may even organise a party during the weekend.

Capricorn ( 22nd December to 20th January ) :
You shall now take every step in a calculated manner, avoiding risk, and approaching everything cautiously, observes Ganesha. Playing safe shall be the name of the game for you, be it any sphere of your life - business, romance or finances. Also, you may be rather reserved this week, keeping largely to yourself. You may even avoid expressing your thoughts in the company of others. Ganesha advises you to shun this attitude, and confide in someone you trust, so that you can give expression to your bottled up feelings and relieve yourself of the burden. As you keep yourself busy with work, you may not be able to devote sufficient time to your family and friends. Alter your busy work schedule a bit, and plan a small outing with your loved ones, giving yourself a chance to relax and enjoy the company of your near and dear ones.

Aquarius ( 21st January to 18th February ) : You will become more rational and practical in your approach towards your job or business, notes Ganesha. You may alter the pace of your work, in order to become more relaxed and composed generally. You will willingly shun your old routine that ran on a breakneck speed. This will be hugely beneficial, as this will also increase the quality of your output. You will also have more free time at hand. On the personal front, you shall make efforts to project a more positive and glamorous image of yourself. A shopping spree is also on the cards.

You may try out every available method to get a glimpse of your future, since you may have an inkling about the challenges that lie ahead.
