Horoscope for August 30, 2016

IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be chatty, restless, fortunate and enthusiastic. You’ll have surplus money to treat yourself though saving some for a rainy day ahead would be a good idea. You will be working hard at home to get everything into ship shape order. Just don’t get too irritable if your plans take longer to sort out than you expect. Socially you’ll be quite a hit, making your presence felt. Try not to be too possessive of loved ones.

ARIES: You will certainly not be short of admirers, social invitations or compliments for a few weeks with Venus in your opposite sign of Libra. So make the most of the good times, and have fun. It will boost your morale, your self-esteem and your status. Though at work, since Mercury in Virgo at the moment has a cool, clinical eye, you can sometimes nit-pick too much, insisting on absolute perfection, or become bogged down in trivia. Lighten up and be tolerant.
TAURUS: You’ll be slightly more reserved than usual, rather shy, when it comes to expressing your romantic needs. You need to make more effort to break the ice and show your inner warmth. Try to drop your rather stand offish manner, and be more outgoing. Maybe you do have too much work on your plate, but if you make loved ones feel excluded or demand too much in the way of responsibility from them you run the risk of dampening what could be fun times.
GEMINI: You definitely want more attention now and will be aiming for the spotlight at parties and even given to grand gestures even at work. You are certainly not in the mood for dreary chores or fitting in with instructions. Your creative spirit is demanding freedom. What you desire, you want passionately and have no intention of going without. Heart-centred, and rather flamboyant, you will be casting your spell over everyone you meet with your great enthusiasm and sparkling personality.
CANCER: Maybe you don’t want to put yourself out and about as much at the moment socially or romantically. But watch that it isn’t a slight fear of rejection that is making you disappear into your shell. Just cuddle up close to those who make you feel warm and wonderful. When you are out and about you’ll be in a searching mood at the moment, wanting to ferret out fascinating bits of information, using your mind for research. Your mind is razor sharp, witty and fast moving.
LEO: You cannot relate romantically at the moment without a good mental connection. Lovers need to be pals and on the same wavelength. A good many blissful moments can be had murmuring sweet words in the right ears. You will much prefer to keep the mood upbeat, rather than delve into intense discussions on dark subjects at the moment. Maybe you will come across sometimes as slightly superficial because you flit lightly from subject to subject. You will be a wow at parties since your chit-chat is second to none.
VIRGO: You’ll put a high value on loyalty, stability and physical closeness. You want more hugs, caresses, kisses and tangible gestures of affection than usual. Don’t let insecurity make you too possessive or stubborn. Just be affectionate and steadfast. More passive than energetic at the moment, you want emotional partners to make the first move and then fit in with what suits you. Don’t expect miracles since you can be disappointed if you don’t reach out once in a while to make an effort.
LIBRA: Your wonderfully outgoing style is making you a hit at social occasions, as you sparkle like a firecracker, keeping everyone highly entertained. In good humour, you are positive and enthusiastic. Just watch a tendency to put too much stress on surface appearance, or to fit in with whoever is taking the strong position around you for the sake of peace and quiet. You want to pour oil on troubled waters, but you may need to stand up for your rights more firmly.
SCORPIO: You seem to be in a position to give more now, and you are undoubtedly sensitive to the unspoken needs of those close to you. You can be enormously compassionate, but you do have to watch that you do not become emotionally overloaded, soaking in too much of their problems. Or being too sentimental and impressionable. You will be inclined to retreat into your own little inner dream world at the slightest setback or hint of indifference or rejection which may be unintended.
SAGITTARIUS: You want space, freedom and independence in your social and emotional life, and a strong individual for a mate who is willing to let you go your own way. You mean to stay loyal but get odd moments of insecurity which make you suddenly switch your affections off. Close relationships and one-to-one commitments may be making you edgy. This is only a temporary phase, so do not say or do anything too abrupt, since you will want to go back to the status quo fairly soon.
CAPRICORN: Your ability to keep the peace, and generally boost morale could be useful in gaining you prominence at work, and help smooth your path to promotion. Your charm may have a hidden agenda but it will bring the desired result if you just keep schmoozing in the right places. You’ll be coming across as rather cool and reserved, but your sophisticated approach will be just what is needed to bring respect from people in authority. Business-like charm will get you further than frivolous jokes.scop-icon-5
AQUARIUS: You’ll be honest and very direct about your feelings, though not at all heavy about anything. You want loved ones to be open and above board. It is important that you have open lines of communication, since you want titillating and amusing conversation as well as cuddles. You are certainly not in the mood to be fenced in or tied down. Domesticity seems less attractive even than usual, and you want to be wandering around entertaining yourself anywhere but where you ought to be.
PISCES: At the moment if you are off someone, then you are really off. But remember you will not always feel this intensely, and there may come a point in a few weeks time when you wish you hadn’t been so abrupt. Venus may be throwing up odd emotional tensions at the moment, but it should also be improving certain joint financial matters. It is a good time for negotiation, but you could also find that money or generous presents come your way rather discreetly.
