Going to private parties is a high probability today. All in all, make the most of it as you get nostalgic with old friends and make plans with new ones. Moreover, relatives will be pleased to meet you after a long time.
This week you are likely to be focused on career-related matters, feels Ganesha. The week is auspicious for businessmen to expand operations. However, if you are in the manufacturing line, you may not make much headway, but you may go ahead with overhauling your machinery. Professionals handling offshore projects need to be careful while finalising deals. Read the contract terms carefully before Signing. Some of you may feel uneasy, but your position will be stable. With the 12th House from your Sign afflicted by Saturn and Mars, unexpected expenses may upset your savings plan. As such, with Saturn posited in the 12th House, plan you finances with a long-term perspective. Malefic influence of Saturn over the 9th House along with Sun and Mars posited therein, is likely to place hurdles in your path and you may not be able to perform as planned. On Sunday, Sun leaves its own Sign Leo to enter Virgo. Sun then joins Jupiter and Mercury posited in the 10th House from your Sign.
Confident and optimistic, you shall begin the month on a good note. You may stumble a bit, as the month progresses, but strive ahead, and you shall manage to make suitable progress. Family and finances shall largely top your priority, this month. At home, your involvement with your kids, yours or a sibling's, or younger relatives may increase. You may find yourself getting increasingly worried about them, or a situation revolving around them. Be supportive, says Ganesha. This may also help you spend quality time with your loved ones at home, including your spouse. If you are married, possibility of your in-laws visiting (or you visiting them) is also high in August. Work-wise, things shall be quite busy too, especially in the month's latter half. You may feel that you are not getting due support from your seniors and colleagues. This may be true to quite an extent, but don't let this leave you disillusioned. Ganesha also foresees the possibility of unexpected expenditures, all through the month. The retrograde Venus shall be posited in Leo this month, which indicates that you will need to special care in health matters, especially if you suffer from a lifestyle or age-related disease. In love, stay sensitive towards your loved one.
This promises to be a year full of opportunities, gains and starry gifts. But do not brag about it, cautions Ganesha – the more humble you remain, the better chances you will get. Mid-January to March 2015 shall be a fortunate time. Travel, work and studies shall all bring gains, thanks to Jupiter. Financially, too, you shall be comfortable. But since the slow-moving Saturn transits through your Sign for most part of the year, you must make an effort to remain disciplined and cautious. Also, be careful of temptations and distractions, which are likely to woo you, especially post August 2015. On the health front, things will be fine. The initial phase of the year is good for initiating a relationship, but there may be some hurdles in forging a long-term bond, given Ketu's influence. At work, remain open and candid, accept new challenges, and do justice to your work.
