Horoscope for August 10, 2015


aries ARIES: Your helpful suggestions at work are going down well now. But try a little charm, and a few compliments before you wade in to criticise. You are determined to get a more orderly atmosphere to work in, and are fed up with incompetence, chaos, and too pressured a schedule. Take time out of a busy schedule just to wind down. You don’t stop, stand back and come to any conclusions or be reflective. The words all just flow out like a flood.
TAURUS: There is plenty of fun and laughter around you now. You appreciate your own ideas, and like listeners to be appreciative as well. Just don’t exaggerate too much to make an effect, or embroider the facts to make a good story. Money and security are the main things on your mind for a brief spell. It’s well worth your while pushing yourself into doing boring things like the paperwork. Not only will you feel better, you’ll be able to spend with a clear conscience. taurus
gemini GEMINI:  You may be taking other people’s comment too personally, fearing slights where none were intended. You are more sensitive and moody than usual, so you will want to retreat into your shell if arguments flare up where you feel your views are being personally attacked. Though you are more creative and sympathetic than usual, but perhaps are not always able to put your thoughts or feelings precisely into words. Sometimes you can just get yourself worked up about things that are not as important as you’re making them out to be.
CANCER: You are not about to let your feelings get in the way of your thinking at the moment. But it does sometimes mean you sound cool or too detached. Your curiosity is being stirred at the moment, so you are off finding about things that interest you with great enthusiasm. You may not pause for long in any one place but will constantly be on the go searching and seeking. If you’re around others too much, you’ll end up being subjected to their demands. cancer
leo LEO: Your concentration is good at the moment once you settle down to tasks. More stubborn than usual, you are digging your heels in quite hard. No one will shout you down since you are coming across as determined. Though on the whole you want to avoid confrontations. You may be trying to sort out what others think about this or that, and getting a bit confused. But at the end of it all you will be able to come to your own judgements.

IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be fortunate, enthusiastic and very go ahead. You may not always be tactful as you sweep obstacles to one side but your charming way with words will quickly smooth round any resentments. At home you’ll need to be firm with yourself in getting practical problems sorted out. And you’ll push to get emotional tensions into the open to clear them out of the way once and for all. Money will roll in more easily allowing for treats.

VIRGO: Spouting off opinions in all directions, you will be jumping onto the next point before companions have had a chance to absorb the main point. You could also be point scoring or trying to have the last word, which may not always go down too well. You would rather speak than listen and the moment. What you say may not be too subtle. But your plus side is you have no devious streak, and can be relied on for straight answers to direct questions. virgo
libra LIBRA: Your mind is wandering around restlessly, and maybe you are too susceptible to persuasion by others. You are picking up subtle clues from others, acting like a sponge, soaking in atmosphere, and this can make you biased without realising it. Kindness will come more easily to you than anger, so you are ducking out of confrontations wherever possible. In a sentimental mood, you feel sympathetic, and are a good shoulder to cry on for friends in need. Protect yourself from being drained too much.
SCORPIO: Your concentration is wandering a little at the moment, and you are getting very bored with having to listen to feedback. You may say things that startle other people, just to amuse yourself. You may be slow to make up your mind at the moment but once there you won’t budge. You are an odd mix of highly tolerant and very obstinate. Your emotional responses will be more intense for a while. Important, influential or strong minded people will be drawn into your orbit. scorpio
sagittarius SAGITTARIUS: You will be chatting away constantly, pleased that the right people are keen to hear your ideas. Try not to be jealous or possessive or get yourself unsettled if things are not going precisely as you want. You will tend to react over-quickly to things, hearing slights where none exist. Balance is what you are aiming for, though you may be swinging to extremes in the effort to find it. Having a close partner is vital to your confidence at the moment.
CAPRICORN: You don’t want to be bothered by details now since you want to see the broad picture. Just watch you are not being impractical or unrealistic. Over optimism could trip you up. Try not to promise more than you can deliver. Your intentions are good but you may be getting over enthusiastic. Other people may be demanding quite a lot of you, so watch you don’t end up feeling resentful. Do what makes you feel virtuous, but don’t let others push you too much. capricorn
aquarius AQUARIUS: Maybe you do sometimes express yourself too forcibly at the moment. You will not easily change your mind. Your intuition is working better than usual now, so you will be able to ferret out secret information. But you have no intention of letting your own cats out of the bag. Though this is not a day to be keeping your feelings to yourself. So go flirt, have fun, play games with loved ones, children or social buddies. Forget routine chores for now.
PISCES: You will go well out of your way to avoid boors, bores and mates who get on your nerves at the moment. You want interesting conversations with people who are on your wavelength. You are trying to see right round one situation, testing out every possible viewpoint. This is a good day to be self-protective and retreat into a private place, preferably at home. So much the better, if you can manage to take the day off and push away hassle. pisces
