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: You may be dashing around 16 different people, trying to sort out what they think about this or that, and getting confused as a result. But at the end of it all you will be able to come to your own judgements. Then when the moment comes, you’re ready to jump and say, “This is what’s going to work for the future, and that’s where I’m going to commit my energy”.rnYou can sometimes sound slightly self-righteous as if you have all the answers.
TAURUS: The Moon is the nurturing, mothering sign, and sitting at your midheaven for a couple of days, it’s clearly nudging you into being more protective of those around you. The more you give, the more everyone will think you are absolutely marvellous. This is no time to raise loans or go into debt. Credit will not be easily forthcoming or you might get to resent the obligations of paying it back. It is only a temporary phase but one where you are thrown back on your own resources.
GEMINI: It’s a very enthusiastic day when you will want to communicate on a broader scale. There may be messages from abroad or from a distance away. You need an escape route from dreary mates or restrictive chores. You want pals as well as lovers now, nothing too intense or claustrophobic will do. Certain close partners may have become more critical and be demanding more of your time and energy. You are certainly being made aware of your commitments, but success should be coming also for your past efforts.
CANCER: Your emotional responses will be more intense for a couple of days. Important, influential or strong minded people will be drawn into your orbit, but you need to tread softly, and not say everything you feel or think. You will be still waters that run deep. You will be controlling your feelings, putting up a calm exterior. Watch that jealousy or possessiveness does not get in the way of closeness. Hard work may be needed to get your health in optimum shape, but you can do it.
LEO: 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 now.rnThis is not a time to speculate wildly where cash is concerned, or gamble. You will need to draw back from some of your wilder impulses.
VIRGO: Other people may be demanding quite a lot of you, so watch you don’t end up feeling resentful. Having to fit in all the time with other people’s plans, whims, suggestions and orders can be a bit of a bore. Do what makes you feel virtuous, but don’t let other people push you too much. Push yourself to establishing a warm, happy, secure home life for yourself. Just kow that hard work always pays off here. You will get what you want if you persevere.
LIBRA: You want to be flamboyant and exuberant, to be in the spotlight, basking in the limelight. It’s clearly not a day to be keeping your feelings to yourself. Go flirt, have fun, playing games with loved ones, children or buddies. Forget routine chores and duck out if you feel an order coming your way.rnIt may be sensible to go off and think or even write seriously on your own about matters which interest you. Learning new subjects may be hard work, but the effort will be rewarded.
SCORPIO: You want to be flamboyant and exuberant, to be in the spotlight, basking in the limelight. It’s clearly not a day to be keeping your feelings to yourself. Go flirt, have fun, playing games with loved ones, children or buddies. Forget routine chores and duck out if you feel an order coming your way.rnIt may be sensible to go off and think or even write seriously on your own about matters which interest you. Learning new subjects may be hard work, but the effort will be rewarded.
SAGITTARIUS: The Moon is a little bit fickle, restless and quite emotional so you may be saying things to others in a way that they don’t entirely understand. The words all just flow out like a flood. Whereas if you could stand back and be a bit more sensible about one or two things, it really would help enormously. Beware a tendency to look at life from the most negative point of view. Be persevering and don’t try to take short cuts.
CAPRICORN: Don’t let yourself feel lonely or isolated. Maybe you do sense a lack of support especially at work. But there are changes ongoing within you which will need time to come to the surface. Just keep pruning out what you reckon is inessential. You are clearing the decks of whatever you do not need for the future. 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.scop-icon-5
AQUARIUS: Try not to get hypersensitive or over react to other people’s comments. Sometimes you can just get yourself worked up about things that are not as important as you’re making them out to be. Try to give yourself some space to just wind down and be a bit more at peace if you possibly can.rnYou may find a friend rather cool or absent when you want support. You have to work at those kinds of relationships where before it used to come easily.
PISCES: If you’re around others too much, you’ll end up being subjected to their demands so you might as well give yourself permission to do what you want. You won’t manage it entirely, of course, but for some of the day give yourself a chance for reflection. You’ll be surprised in the quiet moments how inspiration suddenly hits you about things that seemed to have no answer. There is no short cut to achievement. It will come now through perseverance, self control and self discipline.
