Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, Aug. 9th

Our fantasies are sweet as sensuous Venus creates an easy trine with illusory Neptune. These are the two planets of love and beauty; Venus symbolizes our personal desires and expressions, while Neptune is more spiritual and diffused. Our dreams are mixed up with reality today as Venus and Neptune conspire, and we can grow infatuated with our visions of ideal love. Fortunately, the earthy Taurus Moon prevents us from drifting off into space.
Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Rather than pushing your agenda on others today, it’s better to trust your instincts and pay attention to your changing feelings. Luckily, your allies have your best interests at heart, so it’s a smart strategy to listen to what they have to say. Even if your goals seem impractical or unattainable now, don’t be afraid to reach for your dreams while they are still near enough to touch.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

Your ruling planet Venus teaches you a lesson in compassion today as she harmonizes with spiritual Neptune. However, this kind of dreamy love doesn’t come naturally since you prefer to keep things real. Keep in mind that sometimes stretching outside of your comfort zone is well worth the effort. Opening your heart does not put you in any real danger now since the practical Taurus Moon comes to the rescue and brings your fantasies down to earth.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

A visionary boss or associate may become a close mentor now, but you must be willing to embrace him or her beyond a superficial level. Others won’t accept your clever wit as a substitute for a real connection of the heart today, so don’t let your nonchalant attitude distract you from sharing your dreams. Instead, enjoy the beauty of the emotional support that is available to you now.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

You’re able to soak in the admiration from others today, but you must also be willing to reach out to express what you want. You might actually be more eager than anyone realizes now, but you have to be comfortable before revealing your heart. If you’re insecure, you can quickly clam up. Your current challenge is to stay present even if you feel vulnerable; share your perspective so others can see what you have to offer.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You may be totally charmed by someone you meet today and could even fall in love. But the entire relationship might occur only within your imagination. You’re hesitant to share your feelings with anyone else because you have trouble seeing a good reason to come clean with your fantasies. It’s crucial to give yourself permission to explore your desires whether or not you express any of them out loud. Honor your heart by listening to what it wants.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You may not be able to keep your perspective rational today because you’re probably dreaming about an unrealistic relationship. You might also be wondering how you can put your desires into words. Unfortunately, your interactions with others seem too shallow to express the depth of your feelings. Don’t give up before you even try. Go ahead and convey your message anyhow; the right person will understand your point perfectly.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Usually, you aren’t one to evade intensity or sidestep difficult issues, yet today it is a tempting possibility. You see great potential everywhere you look now, but don’t want to do anything to mess up what you currently have going. Keep in mind that suppressed feelings can be expressed gently in a way that’s productive instead of destructive. It’s the timing and the tone that make all the difference.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You might be feeling pretty good today and think that everything is wonderful. It’s easy to believe a fantasy now, especially if it offers you some sort of emotional security. But even if you are being nurtured, your need for adventure may stir up uncertainties about your current relationship situation. The more you try to ignore your concerns, the more intense they become. Ironically, staying in touch with your discomfort can actually improve your day.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You may not like the idea of lessening your resistance, even if you secretly would like to try. You are attracted to exploring a potentially positive experience today, but you feel safer within the formality of rules. However, your dilemma won’t be solved with a simple all-or-nothing choice now. Observe when you tighten your muscles or hold your breath; engage your heart, instead of automatically closing it down.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You’re ready to enjoy the finer things in life today, but there may not be time since it’s busier than a typical workday. You have sufficient energy to do your job, but unexpressed desires could get in the way. Unfortunately, the more you try to concentrate, the more persistent your fantasies become. Instead of pushing them away now, focus on ways to make your dreams come true.

Pisces Horoscope

Don’t worry about what others think. Nevertheless, you are seeing things as you wish them to be in an ideal situation, rather than how they are now. Wait a few days before making any significant choices regarding matters of the heart.
