Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, August 13th
No job is too small today, dear Aries, with the Moon in your solar sixth house. In fact, focusing on the details is both satisfying and rewarding now. You continue to find many reasons to be productive. Despite a tendency to notice flaws, you are more motivated to use your time wisely by dealing with problems and putting them behind you. With both Mercury and Mars retrograde these days, you’re likely dealing with more small problems than usual! Getting a handle on them is likely to leave you feeling especially accomplished and satisfied with your work. Keeping yourself active is a sure bet to boost your mood. Stay open to taking on a supportive role now, and take a break from being the leader. You’re in great shape for taking care of business.
Today is a great day to focus on letting loose, having fun, and entertaining, dear Taurus. Good energy continues to radiate through your inner world, emotions, and intimate relationships. Be sure to take the time to get creative and take part in the activities and hobbies you truly enjoy. You’re more self-confident and living in the now. It’s a strong time for feeling comfortable and enjoying yourself. Giving others room to be themselves without any pressure to perform or to measure up makes the most sense, and so does taking the same liberties. New insight into a close relationship comes from pushing boundaries, particularly related to ideas and beliefs, just enough to become a little more intimate.
You may enjoy sticking to your regular routines and time spent at home or with close loved ones, dear Gemini, with the Moon’s transit of your solar fourth house all day. You’re a little more introspective now, but you’re also quite receptive at this point in the lunar cycle. Although you may be feeling more sociable in a general sense these days, you also need to take the time to recuperate and relax with those you hold dear, and you’re likely to feel this desire strongly now. It’s a sound day for planning activities that boost your relationships with your family and close friends. Taking the time to relax and center yourself now will open doors for future opportunities.
The lines of communication feel open today, dear Cancer, especially with a significant other or when you’re involved in one-on-one conversations. This is one of the better times to make connections, retrograde Mercury aside. If you can afford to do so, avoid enforcing concentration if it’s not coming naturally. With the Moon in your solar third house, it may be better to take on many different light jobs than one concentrated task. Even so, a partner can help you specialize or focus, complementing you well. Ideally, you can be enjoyably busy today, and keep up a quick pace where multi-tasking can thrive and feel more natural. Your ability to attract people and things into your life is high today. You’ll find others are cooperative as the energy of the day flows smoothly with your fundamental nature.
It’s a day to take the time to appreciate all that you have and enjoy the comfort that comes by extension, dear Leo, as the Moon is in earthy Virgo and your solar second house all day. Try to involve yourself in activities that help ground you and connect you to the physical world, as these activities can be especially healing with current transits. Many exciting possibilities and developments may be popping into your life, and it is especially beneficial at times like these to center yourself enough to see things clearly and calmly. The desire to work practically comes naturally, so take advantage. You’re fully able to push emotions aside so that you can take care of business.
With the Moon transiting your sign all day, dear Virgo, you may feel ready to take the lead. Spontaneity seems to allow your creative side to blossom now. You are more in touch with your needs and emotional desires, and they are upfront and center today. Be sure to connect with your emotions, using them as a guide without letting them control you. Consider indulging in a creative medium today, which can allow you to express your feelings productively. You may also feel good romantic energy now, and certainly, your powers of attraction are in good form. The Moon in your sign inclines you to seek out emotional stimulation, and you quite readily find it through recreational outlets.
Reflect on what is doing you more harm than good in your life, dear Libra, and make a move, however big or small, to rid yourself it, whether it is an attitude or habit that’s standing in the way of your happiness and growth. You may feel a strong desire to extract yourself from situations that seem to demand too much from you emotionally and take a much-needed break. As the lunar cycle is ending, it’s time to relax and unwind, as well as let go. There is good energy with you for family relationships or nurturing, supportive activities. Fortunately, emerging problems now tend to have little or no staying power. The Moon travels through your privacy sector all day, boosting your need for quiet time or downtime, and will enter your sign and re-animate your life early tomorrow.
It’s true that Mercury is still retrograde and will be for another six days, dear Scorpio, but today’s energies are nevertheless good for self-expression. They’re also just fine for testing the waters and going with the flow. There is great community spirit today, so try to surround yourself with those with whom you share a similar vision or with people who support your vision. Appreciate the value of having a team supporting you and take the time to contribute something of yourself with the Moon in your solar eleventh house awakening your need for community. You might feel a stronger need for a connection to something bigger than yourself, your profession, or your daily routine. You’re especially aware of your own limits now as the Moon harmonizes with your ruler, Pluto, and this helps you understand your boundaries and prevents you from overextending yourself.
Emotionally, you may feel a stronger desire to attend to your responsibilities and larger goals, dear Sagittarius. Thinking about the long-term, planning ahead in work, and fulfilling obligations are in focus today. You are being noticed now, perhaps in a leadership capacity, which can prompt some nice recognition or feedback for your efforts. If you’ve been feeling undue pressure or stress, you may naturally gravitate towards healing techniques and centering yourself. As you do, you’re likely to feel increasingly more in control and better able to manage your life. You can bring innovative ideas to your work and perhaps solve an old problem with a new method. Energy tends to level out peacefully now.
You may find yourself naturally drawn to activities or circumstances that are emotionally intense these days, dear Capricorn, but today, you need some spiritual refreshment from a lack of focus. Try to find healthy ways of satisfying your urge for activities that break you away from the ordinary or usual. Switching up a part of your everyday routine can be a way of doing just that, and you can feel much more refreshed as a result. You’re in an excellent position to see what’s been stressing you out more than helping you along. Taking action on these things can help open you to new and meaningful opportunities. Mainly, it’s about making emotional space for inviting positive experiences into your life. You have a sharp sense of your capabilities today such that you’re unlikely to push things too far.
Understanding your inner workings as well as the motivations of the people around you is especially important to you today, dear Aquarius, with the Moon spending the day in your solar eighth house. You’re drawn to experiences and activities that absorb your attention. It’s important to make the time and room for getting in touch with yourself on a deeper level, and opportunities to do so emerge now. This puts you in an advantageous position for making future decisions, especially if they need to be made on the spur of the moment. Although it’s easy to fall into a familiar pattern when you’re busy, take the time to analyze said patterns to see what is working well for you, and what may be holding you back from enjoying yourself more fully. This can be a good day for slowing down and centering yourself.
Your emotional focus is on others today, dear Pisces, especially close relationships. You’re more sensitive than usual to what is out of balance in your life. Avoid the tendency to keep to yourself now, allowing yourself to turn to others for support and advice. Even so, in the end, be sure to feel confident in the decisions you make, even if they’re made after considering others’ opinions. The natural adjustments needed to make relationships work can happen more smoothly than usual today, as you are especially accommodating. Try to make subtle, positive changes in your interactions, which will help towards making more significant improvements in the long run. The day advances, the comforts of a relationship or companionship can be highlighted today, but you’re also in an excellent position to see where improvements can be made. Your intuition and sensitivity to hidden aspects of a situation are operating strongly now.
