August 2011 Monthly Horoscope for Libra
Increased activity levels in your life right this month allow you to complete many goals that you had all but given up on. You've taken care of outside projects and now it is time concentrate on your own, personal ventures. There may be some hurdles in front of you on the work front, but you have what it takes at this time to get over them and move ahead with great success. Your determination, integrity and vitality will move your project to the foreground and garner much support from those around you.
Be on the alert, however, that this may be a time when you find yourself in conflicting situations with people in authority. Remember, just because someone asks for your opinion, it doesn't mean they are constrained to accept and follow your advice. Share your knowledge of a situation when someone requests the information, but don't make the mistake of assuming your solution is the only one available. Others near you may have opinions of their own that are equally valid.
When it comes to work, this is a good time to maintain a low profile. Try not to attract too much attention to yourself; the outcome will likely not be what you're hoping for. You may be tempted to speak up, especially in a potentially volatile situation, but you'll be happier in the long run if you can simply keep your unsolicited opinions to yourself for the time being. A time is coming when those in power actively seek your advice, but that time is not yet here. Be patient and bid your time.
Plans you've made in the past may turn out to be more viable now, more viable, at least, than the arrangements you're currently considering. It may seem counterintuitive to dig through ideas you may have long since abandoned in search of inspiration, but there were some things you overlooked last time around that could make all the difference. Try to see things with better eyes and in a new light.
Leave time for social interaction. Someone you haven't seen in a long time, either a friend or business associate, may well show up again in your life when you least expect it. You'll want plenty of time to catch up on old times and discuss friends and family that you knew "back when." Your old friend has some information for you that-though you don't realize it at the moment-will come in handy somewhere down the line. Keep your ears open!
You'll also find yourself having dealings with someone in an influential position, either at work or perhaps an elected official of some sort. Keep your conversation respectful and do your best to remain attentive, even when the conversation lags and things get a bit boring. Later you'll be glad you did. Also, there are things this person has to teach you that will be valuable to you in the future.
