Horoscope for August 26, 2016

IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be filled with dreams but can you make them real? You’ll be pushing hard at home to improve the ambiance and clear old tensions out of the way. You’ll be putting your best foot forward and finding a more positive attitude brings benefits. Luck will come your way along with more money to keep you smiling. Out on the party scene you’ll demand and get more attention. Just try not to be too possessive with loved ones. Give them elbow room.

ARIES: Maybe you want to retreat into peace and quiet, retire and meditate. You don’t really feel any huge need to leap out into getting too many things done. Your physical energy may be lower than usual, so take the hint. You are increasingly sensitive to the subtle energies and undercurrents which will make you helpful to those in need since you will tune in to their problems. But you will have to protect yourself to ensure you do not become over loaded with other people’s problems.
TAURUS: This is a great day to pamper your body. You will not want to be leaping into activity at absolutely top speed so use the time wisely for a little tender loving care, and you will bounce back revitalised. Look after your health and your energy, and in two or three days’ time you’ll find that you are much more active again. You seem to be surrounded by sympathetic or artistic friends, who are delightful at times and maddeningly vague at others.
GEMINI: You may not be as active as you normally would be today. With Neptune around, you want beauty, glamour, harmony, so you will be going out of your way to soothe and smooth other people. You do want to be more helpful at work and in your community activities, although you may be going about it in a rather unrealistic way. But it is certainly true if you aim instead for the general good or in more creative ways, then you will reap the rewards of your efforts.
CANCER: Often it’s easier not to say when you discover you have been let down. But don’t tell little white lies just to keep the peace. It always comes out into the open at the wrong moment, in the wrong way. You are questioning almost all your old beliefs, religious, philosophical and educational at the moment. Do you know what you want? No is the simple answer but if you don’t keep asking then you will not find out what you need to know. Just give yourself time.
LEO: If you are interested in mystical things, this is a good day to listen to your intuition and explore below the surface. You want to find a new and different meaning in life, and these influences around now in a subtle way can be extremely helpful. You will have to guard yourself against taking people at face value in financial negotiations and partnerships. You will all too easily allow yourself to be misled into trusting people who are unreliable, unrealistic and, on occasion, downright dishonest.
VIRGO: You may be feeling sort of betwixt and between, rather daydreamy, or a bit irritable and itchy without really knowing why. Don’t be discouraged, just take everything more easily. There are some days you can’t get practical matters together no matter how hard you try. You will believe the best of everyone, and only see what you want to see. This may be rather saintly of you, but hardly helpful when it comes to practical matters. Resolve to be utterly realistic.
LIBRA: You certainly want a bit more glamour or fun. There may even be a hint of publicity around with Mars in aspect to Neptune. You want to bring a little bit more spice into life without too much extra effort. You will get your satisfaction out of making sure that other people’s lives are a little bit easier. Not that you want to be zapping around being terribly strenuous or stretching yourself in any way. But the desire to help is certainly there.
SCORPIO: Neptune can be undermining and makes you feel you don’t have the energy to do things. But Mars also around is courageous and active. If you can turn your determination into making your creative ideas take root, it will work well, just don’t let yourself get side tracked. You may have a head full of romantic daydreams but watch you do not attract lame ducks who are looking for a saviour. Kindness may get the better of common sense and you will end up feeling discontented.
SAGITTARIUS: Don’t cut corners or go round things. Sometimes you can deceive yourself into thinking that it’s just as well to avoid confrontations. But if you do anything in an even vaguely underhand kind of way, it very often comes out into the open rather awkwardly. You are pushing hard to make your dream of an ideal home and family life come true, though you could be feeling a touch let down. What you imagined has not quite come to pass, not yet anyway.
CAPRICORN: Watch you’re not pulling the wool over your eyes or letting anyone else do that. There are rather deceptive influences around which can end up in muddle or situations not turning out to be quite what was expected. Keeping your feet on the ground and being absolutely straightforward may not be easy but it will help. You may not be able to pin down or bring out into the open what has gone wrong. There seem to be crossed lines. scop-icon-5
AQUARIUS: There are very good influences around prompting you to be charitable, selfless and give of yourself to others. When the mood is there, why not? Your energy will not be limitless so work out a way of being helpful without doing anything too physically strenuous. There may be some confusion or uncertainty about money and you could feel your security is being undermined. But really you won’t be too bothered. Neptune can make you spaced out and rather careless when it comes to cash.
PISCES: Mars is now in a flowing aspect to Neptune which is a strange mix of energies. Mars is upfront and says, “I want, I am and I demand,” whereas Neptune does the opposite: it says, “I don’t really matter, you’re the important one.” Try to be sensitive to what is unspoken and you will be in the right place at the right time with a helping hand. You may feel vague, but your defences are softening, making it easier for you to draw close to certain companions.
