Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, August 26th

We long for peace and quiet today, but the simplistic Taurus Moon isn’t enough to alleviate the cosmic tension that is agitating our lives. Romantic Venus in pleasure-seeking Libra opposes uncontainable Uranus in spontaneous Aries, encouraging reckless behavior that can upset the status quo. However, we still may be confused about what to do or say because the willful Sun and chatty Mercury are engaged in a tug-of-war with surrealistic Neptune.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Although you have responsibilities to fulfill today, it’s difficult to resist creating a bit of mischief, instead. You want to take a risk and break out of your normal routine, even if you realize self-indulgence isn’t the smartest course of action now. You may attempt to justify your behavior, yet your current judgment might not be very clear. Ask a trusted friend for a different perspective before doing something you will later regret. Following your whims is fine as long as no harm comes to others.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You feel as if you’re wired for pleasure today since your ruling planet Venus opposes electric Uranus. Nevertheless, your intense desires might create an emotional short circuit if you think that satisfaction is out of reach. Your fantasies may be quite unrealistic, but it really doesn’t matter if you believe in your daydreams or not. You don’t need to follow through with every wish. What’s important now is to give yourself permission to imagine what would bring you happiness if anything was possible.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You may hope to float through the day on a cloud of romantic illusions, but an unexpected event can shock you out of your reverie. Even if you quickly adapt to a change of plans, you still might overlook the significance of what is happening. Although you could be surprised by what you learn, it’s still wise to contemplate what the cosmos is attempting to tell you. Taking time to interpret your dreams reveals secrets you could otherwise miss.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Someone’s reaction to your request at work today might not be what you expect; however, you can take nearly anything in stride with the right attitude. At first, you may be anxious because you don’t want to confront the unknown, but you’re relieved to learn the truth now, even if it catches you off guard. Don’t let your subconscious motivations mislead you into pushing the information away; integrate the new data and alter your plans as needed before moving on.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You are super excited about someone or something new in your life now, but you’re afraid that your current enthusiasm won’t last. You may be overly cautious about letting completely go and enjoying yourself because you believe that your sense of freedom will quickly be restrained by limiting circumstances. Change is inevitable, but worrying about the future doesn’t have to interfere with today’s pleasures. Enjoy the present moment while it lasts.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You might be surprised by someone’s selfish behavior today and you could even be offended by people’s lack of compassion. Rational analysis won’t help you to understand their actions because logic is not the motivating factor now. Unexplainable changes are to be expected if tension is stressing a relationship. But don’t over-analyze anyone’s motives; simply respond with kindness and honesty. The storm will pass quickly if you keep your heart open and remain flexible in your thinking.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Previously hidden desires may float to the surface today. Your key planet Venus is visiting your 1st House of Self and her opposition to unorthodox Uranus in your 7th House of Relationships can uncover something about your partner that you didn’t previously know. But rather than waiting for anyone to surprise you with an unexpected revelation, take the initiative and be an agent of change, yourself. Embrace the shift proactively instead of resisting it.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You would like to let go of old expectations once and for all and express your current feelings spontaneously today as creative Venus opposes progressive Uranus in your 5th House of Romance. Unfortunately, you might not know exactly what you want. Your emotions are slippery now, making it difficult to choose any one course of action. Nevertheless, you have an amazing opportunity to learn something important about love if you’re willing to relinquish control and go with the flow.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You wish a friend or partner would make a straightforward decision today, but the clarity you seek may continue to be elusive. Instead of receiving a yes or no answer now, you’re required to live with someone’s uncertainty. However, it’s likely that other people’s ambivalence might simply be a reflection of your own, even if you believe that you already made your choice. Don’t push for resolution since it will take time for all the facts to fully emerge. A little patience gives inspiration a chance to strike.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You want to gather as much useful information as you can today, since you might mistakenly believe that the solution to your current dilemma is in having all the facts. Unfortunately, you may be in a hurry now, allowing you to make a wrong assumption and jump to an incorrect conclusion that’s based on your desires. Acknowledge what you want, but be smart and postpone any major decision until your energy settles down. Your path should begin to clear in just a few days, bringing success within your reach.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Your craving for connection pushes you one way today, while your need for independence pulls you another. You may long for more intimacy in your everyday life, yet still keep others at an arm’s length if you’re afraid of losing your autonomy. Thankfully, a sudden breakthrough in your awareness can zap your heart open and instantaneously intensify the dynamics of a relationship. If lightning strikes, set aside practicalities and be flexible enough to fully engage the magic of the moment.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Your perspective on a close relationship could be challenged today, making you weary of the familiar tensions you feel. You don’t want to argue with your partner over another misunderstanding; nor do you want to waste energy justifying your desires. Your needs are simple now; you just want your heartfelt disclosure to be heard and acknowledged. Avoid ultimatums; just share what you need in a gentle manner and then be patient. The dynamics are shifting quickly and you just may receive what you want.
