Horoscopes 8-20-15

Posted on Wednesday, August 19, 2015 at 12:03 pm

AQUARIUS (Jan 20– Feb 18):

The extraordinary efforts of someone in your crew — social circle, office clique, team, whatever — are creating some incredible opportunities for you right now, and today is the day to take advantage of them! Put the routine matters of the day aside and put your name on the list of volunteers for a brave new experiment. You have to show that you’re eager to get involved in order for anyone to involve you. Be sure to show gratitude to the person who enabled all of this to happen.

 

PISCES (Feb 19 – March 20):

This is a good day for you to work on your self-esteem and communication skills. The day isn’t going to be too hectic, so you should have all the time you need to get introspective and check in with yourself. Be brutally honest. Step out of the fantasy life you’ve been living lately and give yourself a fresh reality check. Some facts about your life won’t exactly make you deliriously happy, but acknowledging them is all that matters right now.

 

horoscopesARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19):

The heat is getting turned up a lot higher in one of your personal relationships — but unfortunately, it might not be in a good way. Look for little annoyances to suddenly turn into full-fledged fights. To counter this, you should avoid those people who often push your buttons. Also, if you were thinking about visiting a friend who’s been away for a while, keep in mind that they will probably monopolize the conversation. You’ll do a lot of listening, and not a lot of talking.

 

TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20):

Try to keep matters of the heart on the up-and-up right now. Being brutally honest is tough sometimes, but it is much more valuable than softening the truth with little white lies. Too often, those little white lies will backfire on you. The more honest you can be, the more you can expect others to be straight with you — so get ready to hear the truth yourself, and be tolerant of people who tell it like it is. There is something new that you don’t know about yet. It will be revealed today.

 

GEMINI (May 21-June 20):

You have an important choice to make today. You can either expend all your energy trying to avoid any and all conflict, or you can have fun debating people whose thoughts and feelings differ from yours. Choose the latter, and you will feel empowered. Why fear hearing something you don’t agree with? Instead, step up and listen to what naysayers actually have to say. Listen to their reasoning. You will either be convinced or you will have a blast pointing out the gaping holes in their logic.

 

CANCER (June 21-July 22):

Staying conservative and cautious might be the right strategy when it comes to investing money. But when it comes to sharing your emotions, the more extravagant you are, the better! Spread your joy all around today — even if you don’t feel like you have a lot of it. You’ll soon notice that once you start expressing joy to others, more happiness appears in your heart. Feel happy about where you are and what you’re doing — and you will find even more to be happy about.

 

LEO (July 23 – Aug 22):

Sure, it takes a little bit of confidence to get out and meet people. But meeting the right people also takes luck — you need to be in the right place at the right time. You’ve got both luck and confidence, today! You’ll find yourself face to face with someone whose opinions mean an awful lot to you. Don’t chicken out and not ask them a question or two! The worst thing that can happen is that they don’t respond. But chances are, you’ll be able to engage in a very mutually interesting conversation.

 

VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22):

When a goal is too easy to attain, it is not as fulfilling as a hard-won victory can be. So take the more difficult route today and don’t be too rigid about what you are willing or not willing to do. The biggest challenges come when you open up your mind and tell the universe that you are up for anything! Look for something that puts you outside of your comfort zone and intimidates you just a bit. This task will reward you with great pride that will feed your ego in a powerful way.

 

LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22):

The situation with another person is getting interesting, but it’s also getting a lot more complicated. You’ll have do some creative problem solving to keep them at arm’s length until you can figure out for sure exactly how you want them to fit into your life. Remember to keep the horse before the cart on this particular issue. If you let them push you into doing or saying something before you’re ready, things won’t grow as they are supposed to.

 

SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21):

Today you might get so wrapped up in overcoming a challenge that you lose track of the time. One minute you’re yawning into the morning daylight, and the next, the sun is setting! Once time passes, it’s gone forever. So step back from the projects you’re working on, for a few moments at a time. Try to experience every aspect of the day as much as you can. Take notice of the people and events around you, and you’ll be privy to some useful insight. Don’t take anything for granted in life.

 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21):

Right now, risk is something that you should embrace with all of your heart, not run away from! The exciting opportunity that arrives today might intimidate or even frighten you a little bit, but if you focus on the potential rewards it could bring you, you’ll find yourself more and more willing to take the chance. Go for it! A new beginning is coming — and it will give you the confidence to move in a new direction in your life. The future looks good!

 

CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19):

The extraordinary efforts of someone in your crew — social circle, office clique, team, whatever — are creating some incredible opportunities for you right now, and today is the day to take advantage of them! Put the routine matters of the day aside and put your name on the list of volunteers for a brave new experiment. You have to show that you’re eager to get involved in order for anyone to involve you. Be sure to show gratitude to the person who enabled all of this to happen.
