Get A Jump on Tomorrow……
Your Horoscopes for Friday, August 10th
A Solar Eclipse will occur in your sector of joy and creativity tomorrow morning, dear Aries, and today, it’s appropriate to wind yourself down and clear your head. It may not be exceptionally easy to do the latter with current influences, but it’s a good idea to avoid quick decisions now. As much as possible, reflect and rest so that you can tune into your intuition. A Mercury-Jupiter aspect coming into influence and tied into the coming eclipse is familiar – it happened in July, and we’re now returning to it with Mercury’s backward trek. Thoughts and ideas about love, creative projects, and possibly children may come back into focus now for further attention. Do watch for jumping to conclusions or working yourself up about an idea that you haven’t yet researched. However, let yourself dream and stretch your mind to consider new possibilities.
A Solar Eclipse occurs tomorrow morning, dear Taurus, and since it will mark the start of a new cycle, it’s better to wind down, let go, and rest on this day before the eclipse. It’s easy for your mind to race today, however, with a Mercury-Jupiter square influencing the day, and it’s just fine to stretch your mind now, but significant new beginnings should probably wait since it’s unlikely you have the complete picture yet. There can be developments with family, home, or partnership now, but things are still evolving. There is more to the story! It may be a helpful exercise to think in big ways, especially if you previously missed an opportunity by focusing mainly on practical possibilities, as long as it’s serving you well. If it’s making you or a significant someone tense, then it may be better to let it go. You are likely to return to an old conversation or idea now, in fact
This is a good day for reviewing projects and endeavors in your life with an eye on what may need improvement, dear Gemini. It’s not a good time for all-new beginnings for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is a Solar Eclipse occurring tomorrow that’s set to redirect you along a new path. New energy is coming your way with this eclipse, which can boost your motivation and possibly turn your attention to exciting endeavors. You may want to keep a check on your communications today, particularly with a tendency to say too much or to come to conclusions too quickly. You may come up with interesting ideas, but the discipline to follow through on them may be lacking. That’s just fine for now – it’s not the time to bank on things, anyhow, so stretch your mind and enjoy yourself as you do. Today is best for winding down and reflecting or laying things to rest.
Timing continues to be a little off, dear Cancer, and it’s not the best time to make final decisions today for a variety of astrological reasons, not the least of which is that a Solar Eclipse is occurring tomorrow. A Mercury-Jupiter aspect today can serve to emphasize the differences between you and people in your life, even if these differences don’t bother you on another day. Watch for unnecessary tension. This is a good day for reviewing financial records or money-making ventures for problems, but not ideal for starting something new. Review recent developments. Consider ways to improve your finances and sense of security, as these are active areas of focus in the coming weeks. Take steps to wind down, relax, and reflect as much as possible today.
With a Balsamic Moon today, dear Leo, it’s best that we wind down or turn inward for answers. For you, it’s a particularly good idea to take stock since tomorrow’s New Moon is a Solar Eclipse in your sign. As with any new beginning, your attitude going into this cycle can help shape the months ahead. Be aware that you are not at your decision-making best today, and aim to reflect, review, and reconsider. Avoid giving in to negative thinking or succumbing to a Mercury-Jupiter square influence that tends to exaggeration or making too much of a matter. These things only serve to interfere with your intuition. Clear your head so that you can take full advantage of the energy for a new beginning ahead of you.
Try to take the day slowly, dear Virgo, on this day before a Solar Eclipse. With current influences, it’s more than likely that you do not see the full picture – there’s more information to come. Tomorrow’s eclipse can bring on a new development of a private matter or the need for more rest and some seclusion. With a Balsamic Moon today, appropriate activities involve reflecting on the past and tying up loose ends, while entirely new endeavors should be avoided. However, if you want to quit a bad habit or let go of something more easily than you might under normal circumstances, then this is the time to do so. Keep in mind that people around you may be making mountains out of molehills or they could be promising more than they can eventually fulfill. Rest, reflect, and simplify, and keep expectations in check for best results now.
Today is good for slowing down, dear Libra, although current influences tend to wind you up mentally. Avoid jumping to conclusions and jumping into action since your interests are likely to change after tomorrow’s game-changing Solar Eclipse. You’re moving in a new direction on a social level with this new beginning, but you may not have all the information you need to make big decisions for now. With today’s Balsamic Moon, it’s better to focus on tying up loose ends, putting a bad habit behind you, or reflecting on recent events. You might envision what you’d like to accomplish or what you see for yourself related to networking, your place in the community, and friendships. Try not to give in to the temptation to make a quick decision without knowing enough of the necessary information. Focus instead on letting go and clearing your head so that you can more easily access your intuition.
With a Mercury-Jupiter square today, dear Scorpio, it’s important to avoid speaking too soon (or too much) on a matter. This aspect ties in with an eclipse that is to occur early tomorrow, giving it more staying power, and you wouldn’t want to have something you haven’t put a lot of thought into to be a defining moment or to stick with you in the weeks ahead. Excesses in your personal life may be catching up with you, and today, it’s best to consider letting something go rather than taking on something new. Since it’s a Balsamic Moon today and the New Moon Solar Eclipse occurring tomorrow is career-related or is about your long-term plans and ambitions, you may want to reflect on recent events and consider how you want these things to play out. Envisioning your goals makes sense now. You’re in an excellent position to quit a bad habit or attitude, as well as to let go of thoughts and feelings that haven’t been serving you well. Today, avoid noisy distractions that take you away from your intuition.
There is a Solar eclipse tomorrow, dear Sagittarius, and it’s part of a set that’s encouraging you to communicate in ways that serve you well and to find your path with studies and personal interests. Today’s Moon is Balsamic, and it’s ideally spent relaxing, reflecting, and winding down. Even so, a Mercury-Jupiter influence, also active now, can have a stimulating effect, so you may have to consciously work on letting go, simplifying, and tuning out distractions. If you find yourself over-stimulated, take steps to reduce stress. Watch also for misinformation, as it’s more likely to circulate now. Tomorrow’s eclipse is likely to stir motivation and ambition. For now, reflection is in order. You might consider now what’s best to leave behind you as if you were packing for a new journey and you can only bring so much. These can be self-limiting attitudes or situations and projects that hold you back from growing.
The Moon is Balsamic today, dear Capricorn, making it a good idea to reflect, detox, rest, and tie up loose ends. The focus should be on letting go and simplifying rather than winding yourself up since tomorrow’s New Moon Solar Eclipse will begin a new cycle for you. If there is a bad habit you’d like to let go of, it may be easier to do so now. Tomorrow’s eclipse is likely to bring a change of focus or new information into your life. Today, keep in mind that there is a tendency to be unduly critical one minute, and so optimistic that it borders on carelessness the next. While you may have lots of ideas now, it’s not a good time to make your move, especially if it involves making an announcement. Information just isn’t complete at this time. Rein things in as much as possible, as simplifying now seems to be the best answer to problems.
With a Solar Eclipse tomorrow and a Mercury-Jupiter influence in effect, dear Aquarius, take steps to avoid rushing through paperwork and conversations. You are seeking new ideas and experiences rather than the tired, old ones, but you could be easily distracted from your priorities. Today is best used for reflection on recent events than for innovating or beginning something brand new. You might try to get in touch with what you’d like to change or adjust that will move you, or a key relationship, forward. The eclipse is relationship-focused for you, and understanding your needs and current situation will go a long way towards making the right moves. In all likelihood, you’ll be pulled in an entirely new direction and towards a new perspective with tomorrow’s eclipse, but clearing your head now can help you make strong decisions later.
With today’s aspects, people may seem to swing between unrealistic optimism and just as wild pessimism, dear Pisces, when they’re better off in moderate territory. The truth is somewhere between, and you’ll probably find it by going within. With a Balsamic Moon today, it’s an ideal time for letting go of those things that you no longer need, or that you can’t hold on to, and tuning into your intuition will help you greatly along these lines. The trick will be to tune out distractions. Think about what kind of improvements can be made with your daily life, routines, health, and work after the powerful energy of the New Moon Solar Eclipse that will occur tomorrow morning. With this coming eclipse, it’s time for breathing new life into stale routines. Today, make a special effort to wind things down and process recent events rather than push for new beginnings.
