Huffpollstrology: Candidates' Horoscopes, Polls And More For July 29

Polls have come to dominate the media's horse race coverage of political campaigns. Pundits and reporters constantly use them to tell us who's hot and who's not -- but skip over the fact that plummeting response rates and variables like undecided voters and margins of error and often render these polls useless as anything other than lightweight diversions on par with horoscopes and political betting lines.

Your place within a personal or business relationship may be changing. It could be that you're moving 'up' - or even that you've been head-hunted. You may be asked to keep information 'under wraps' for the moment - yet be almost bursting at the seams wanting to let someone in on good news. A word of warning - misunderstandings are likely today. A purse, wallet or handbag could be 'busting' too - probably because it's too full of receipts and bits of paper.
