Horoscope for August 17, 2016

IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be fun loving at times, rather boisterous when it comes to parties and games, but also serious as you have to step up to fulfil your obligations towards loved ones. Money should flow in faster though you’ll have to watch you’re not too trusting of the advice or information coming your way. Double check everything for yourself. You’ll be opening your mind to new ideas and startle those who remember your old conventional opinions.

ARIES: Fitting in with the crowd can have its compensations since you have many more people around to flit amongst. But then you lose the rewards of intimacy and being the sole focus of someone special’s attention. What you really want is both the freedom of a network of friends, and the adoration of close partners. It may test your ingenuity but it is possible. Today you could become possessive and jealous if you’re in a long-running relationship. You’ll also be tempted to manipulate a bit since you’ll want your own way.
TAURUS: You know the best way to get more attention is to run around being of service to companions at work or out in the community. Give them what they need and they’ll appreciate you thoroughly. But you also need to give yourself more time to find yourself. So divide yourself between quiet moments with your feet up and busy patches where you rush around being helpful. You’ll be seductively charming, appearing amiable, laid-back and happy-go-lucky though you may have had a hidden agenda up your sleeve.
GEMINI: If you are getting slightly bored meeting the same companions all the time, then you clearly need to reach out for more adventurous mates who can bring you a sense that life can have less restrictions and limits. Allow your imagination to soar and see where you can aim higher. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Today will give you a yearning for something more intense, so you could become infatuated or fascinated with someone new which it could be the trigger for a new relationship that will last.
CANCER: If you are off a mind to do a little clearing out, try not to throw away too much. Not just literally, but emotionally as well, you feel the urge to get rid of some old baggage. But remember if you are too impulsive, you may want to backtrack in a few days’ time. Moderation in all things is always a good motto. You could be a touch obsessive so you could become infatuated with someone you fancy. It’s important not to let the deep, dark side of Pluto get hold of you.
LEO: IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be good for money but rather ambivalent about one close relationship. You’ll be pampering yourself with treats and luxuries though it’ll be wise to pay attention to financial details, since speculating or being too trusting won’t work well. Try not to make impulse decisions in your emotional life. Weigh up the options and look at the pros as well as the cons before making any definite judgements.
VIRGO: Maybe you do have to find a little more will power now to get out into the world and tackle practical matters. You may be seduced by the thought that doing less would make you feel better. But you know if you exert yourself you will feel more virtuous and it will probably bring you more energy. You may feel a little separated from loved ones. You’ll get slightly melodramatic about small things, all wound up about something that you need just to wind yourself back down about.
LIBRA: Sometimes in the rush and scramble of coping with everyday matters and an active social life, you lose track of what you really want for yourself. Allowing that vital inner spark to shine out is more important than fitting in with everyone else’s expectations, at least for a day. There could be some indiscretions in the air especially if you’re bored in your love life. You’ll want to sidle off and do things that you haven’t been able to do before. These influences can be a little compulsive, so you’ll be utterly fascinated.
SCORPIO: Maybe loved ones are beginning to mutter they never see you. Take the hint, and find time for your nearest and dearest. You have ambitions to fulfil and commitments but you also need to lead a more balanced life where there is play and relaxation as well as work. If you be more frivolous than you’ll feel, you will find that you can have fun and be happy-go-lucky. There’s a really delightful upbeat side to Venus Pluto, which means you’ll flutter twist people round your little finger.
SAGITTARIUS: In order to make one important decision, you have to arrive at the correct standpoint yourself. This may mean delaying until you have pondered on various different possibilities. If you try to be all things to all people it will not work. Today it’ll almost be as if there’s a sort of magical power drawing you closer to the right person. You’ll have a deep sense that certain relationships are meant so you’ll make the effort to turn on your charm at super speed.
CAPRICORN: You are having to push extra hard at the moment behind the scenes to get close partners to shift ground. You know you cannot have it all your own way, nor can you make entirely independent decisions but you will need to feel that you have an area marked off which is yours, especially with regards to money. Really you want stability, to keep things as they are. So watch that you don’t get bit smothering or restrictive with loved ones. scop-icon-5
AQUARIUS: To be independent or to cooperate? That seems to be your choice now and frankly you can’t quite make up your mind for the best. You know you are unwilling to make certain compromises that are being demanded by someone close, but you are equally not sure whether you wish to cast yourself adrift just yet. Let the dust settle before committing yourself in any direction. You’ll have very powerful energies working in your love life which can bring really positive though profound changes in your relationships.
PISCES: You know you have to get yourself into good shape now physically, but it is also important to look after yourself psychologically. Think about what calms you down, and make sure that today at least you schedule that activity into the diary. You’ll be in a sexy, seductive, passionate mood, wanting to be very close to the special people in your life. Or if you are single today could trigger off a new relationship. Just watch you are not blowing your feelings into melodramatic proportions.
