Daily Horoscopes for Friday, August 30

We can trust our instincts today because the Moon shifts into hypersensitive Cancer at 7:32 am EDT, enabling us to feel ripples in the field before they reach our threshold of perception. We are aware that the universe is mysterious while the Moon forms free-flowing trines with psychic Neptune and karmic Saturn. However, we still may overreact now, even if we don’t reveal our true feelings as communicator Mercury sextiles excessive Jupiter.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You may try to emotionally withdraw today, but your friends or co-workers won’t let you retreat without good reason. They might seem overly aggressive today, which is an interesting turn since you are often the assertive one. Instead of retreating all the way, find a comfortable halfway point where you still can interact with others so everyone feels satisfied.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

Refusing to adapt to someone else’s schedule today may be your way of exerting control over an inequality that’s actually outside your sphere of influence. Others might think you are being childish, yet you are very serious about leaving yourself a little room now to exercise your flexibility. Normally, it’s your desire for stability that people honor, but now it currently works the other way around. Being adaptable allows you to have the most fun.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

If you’re unsure about your feelings today, you might attempt to overcompensate in order to prevent others from sensing your doubts. You may state your case clearly and then defend it eloquently, convincing everyone that you are passionate about your cause. Meanwhile, your angst could become a problem if your ambivalence remains stronger than your need to choose. Assume the best possible outcome and then take appropriate action; the power of positive thinking can’t be overemphasized.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You don’t have to say a word for others to understand how you are feeling today. It’s as if you’re wearing your heart on your sleeve now that the moody Cancer Moon is moving through your 1st House of Personality. Nevertheless, you’re likely to talk up a storm once you overcome your inertia and initiate a conversation about a controversial subject. Luckily, you may receive more support than you expect if you’re willing to take a risk and share what’s on your mind.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You can accumulate power today by keeping your deepest needs to yourself. The reflective Moon shifts into your 12th House of Secrets early this morning to remind you of the momentum you can build by not telling anyone about your deepest needs. But even your temporary fear of rejection may not be enough to keep you completely isolated. Consider all the valid reasons to hide your agenda. Then stretch beyond your comfort level and lay your cards on the table for all to see. Revealing your vulnerabilities is hard work that will be rewarded sooner than you think.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Your tendency to approach your friends and colleagues with unnecessary caution now is supported by your methodical assessment. Fortunately, your precise perceptions and incisive logic sharpen your intuitive instincts, building your confidence level high enough, prompting you to explain your thought process to others. Don’t be afraid to share your gifts — especially now when your message is so vital.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You need to balance your ambitious nature with a softer and more sensitive side of your personality today. On one hand, you’re enthusiastic to get ahead now that the Moon shifts into your 10th House of Public Status. On the other hand, your commitment to your family may be even more important than your desire for success. Don’t waste time wondering which way to go. Fortunately, your inner voice offers the best advice if you just take time to tune into your imagination and listen.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You might not be telling anyone about your new plans for the next stage of your life. Maybe it’s because you aren’t ready for any realistic feedback; however, a fresh perspective can help you fine-tune your ideas. But you aren’t so interested in the little details since the wistful Cancer Moon in your 9th House of Big Ideas encourages you to dream about your connection to the universe. Thankfully, you don’t have to take an all-or-nothing position. Sharing a few thoughts is a good start and can get the ball rolling in the right direction.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You don’t have as much time as you think now, so it’s unwise to promise the sky unless you’re sure you can deliver the goods. Mischievous Mercury supports auspicious Jupiter in your 8th House of Shared Resources, enabling you to profit from a joint enterprise if you are realistic in your assessment. Unfortunately, you could be quick to gloss over an important detail if it stands in your way. Exhibiting confidence is healthy, but only if your optimism is supported by the facts.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You have your own agenda today and may grow irritable if people make emotional demands on your time. Naturally, you’re eager to help a friend, but it may be difficult to let go of your attachment to your previous schedule. Forget about your own agenda for a while and take your cues from others now. Changing your attitude by temporarily shifting your attention away from your personal goals is easier once you realize that it’s also for your own good.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You may be a bit anxious today because the moody Cancer Moon highlights your discomfort with your emotions. Fortunately, your feelings can be a source of strength if you don’t attempt to avoid or deny them. Instead of closing down your sensitive perceptions, consciously widen your perspective by concentrating on your long-term goals. Opening your heart deepens your connection with the entire universe.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You can be quite playful now that the Moon is dancing through your 5th House of Fun and Games. However, you still must exercise a bit of discipline because others can make an activity seem so good that you’re tempted to drop everything and head off to follow them. Don’t wait for your boss to get on your case about something you didn’t complete. Finishing your work before you escape will only sweeten your search for pleasure.
