It’s your chance to show just how much you care and an opportunity to tell him how right he was to push his daughter to marry you. 2. Friday, July 31 is Talk in an Elevator Day. There’s something unnerving about standing silently in a crowded elevator. It takes a brave person to break the uncomfortable silence. Make sure you pluck up the courage to make small talk whilst riding the lift. 3. Saturday, August 1 is Girlfriends’ Day. It’s time to buy flowers and celebrate the special relationship around the world by paying tributes to girlfriends who’ve stood by you through those heart- breaks and the tough times. 4. Sunday, August 2 is Psychic Day that is set aside to give people the opportunity to hone their psychic abilities. Go on, develop the psychic power that is lying dormant within you. It is also Friendship Day originally founded by Hallmark in 1919. MENTAL FLOSS TIMES WORD puzzlE 7717 Win!

The romantic picture gets much more complex – but there’s hardly a cause for concern. VIRGO Aug 23-Sept 22 This is a great week for a celebration, whether or not there’s an occasion. Investigation should be the week’s policy - question prices, motives or anything too good to be true. LIBRA Sept 23-Oct 22 It’s a chatty week, with business conferences and juicy gossip featured. There may be a financial gain by the weekend and a surprise visit earlier in the week. SCORPIO Oct 23-Nov 21 Plan your week carefully and watch out for people making acceptances on your behalf. Be more tactful, even friendly with distant relatives. SAGITTARIUS Nov 22-Dec 22 Good for commencing major projects. Watch your health. Healthwise it’s easy for you to catch things. Family decisions affect you after the weekend. CAPRICORN Dec 23-Jan 20 Romantically a mellow week, but watch the tendency to give in too much. Plans may have to be shelved until the beginning of next month. The moneybelt can finally be eased a little. AQUARIUS Jan 21-Feb 19 The week generally favours acquisitions – anything from picking up a new piece of furniture to finding a stray dog. Some roadblocks at the work place, but romance is on the upswing. PISCES Feb 20-Mar 20 Your greatest enjoyment now is with groups. Be more conservative at work, less so in your personal relationships. An important agreement may have to be postponed. New friendships blossom. ARIES Mar 21-Apr 20 Wherever you find yourself, you find yourself in the centre of attention. Watch out for moods, a loved one may be tense, a child may be sulking. Teamwork is emphasised on the weekend. TAURUS Apr 21-May 22 Generally, your luckiest week in months. It’s also a time to be more receptive to loved ones and much more patient when dealing with complaining friends. GEMINI May 23-June 21 Healthy competition makes this week a success. A friend’s ego could use a good boost, appeal to the sentimental side. There may be possible friction with neighbours on the weekend. CANCER June 22-July 22 Surprise guests and new business ideas highlight the week. Don’t take on new obligations without soul searching and consultation. Enjoy creative projects through the weekend.
