Your August Monthly Forecast: 'A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.' So sang Mary Poppins in the classic Disney film, and who would want to argue with her? This month brings you first the sweetener then, later, the pill. Will it be a bitter one? Yes, if you try to swallow it without the context of the sugar coating. But why would you want to do that? August offers a genuine, much-needed remedy. It will work swiftly to fix your problem with no unpleasant side-effects. The only thing that's not so great about it is that you may not initially like the taste.
