Your Daily Horoscopes for Friday, Aug. 31

Aries

Aries

You may be craving a simple existence today with the Moon spending the day in your solar second house, dear Aries, and you may very well manage it in some respects now. However, life has a way of complicating the little things now, mainly by pitting your diverging interests against one another. In particular, your work and health goals can be difficult to achieve with relationships distracting you as the Sun in your work and health sector forms a minor clashing aspect with Venus in your partnership sector. This is an influence that tends to result in indecision or a persistent state of imbalance. Watch today for agreeing to something just to make a problem go away temporarily. It’s tempting, but keep in mind that you’re borrowing from your future.

Taurus

Taurus

Work and play often don’t mesh beautifully, but today, this is particularly the case, dear Taurus, as the Sun in your sector of joy clashes with Venus in your work and health sector. Indecision is possible, but it’s best to avoid a divided, distracted approach. Instead, aim to put your heart into one and then the other for best results now. Otherwise, you’re liable to waste not only time but energy and happiness. It can be difficult to say “no” to others and to things you want now, but this, too, will pass. The Moon spends the day in your sign, and while this is another possible reason to feel vague discontent, it’s also a time for eventually understanding what you want as your emotions speak loud and clear.

Gemini

Gemini

The Sun is currently transiting your solar fourth house, dear Gemini, encouraging you to stick with familiar, comfortable faces and places. However, Venus is singing an entirely different tune! Currently moving through your sector of joy, pleasure, romance, and creativity, Venus wants you to release some of your inhibitions and share your light with others. While you can manage both rather well on other days, it can leave you divided today. With the Moon in your privacy sector all day, Venus may be outnumbered, but you can feel in a state of discontent as a result. Do your best to strike a compromise, and save the bigger decisions for a more confident day.

Cancer

Cancer

The Moon spends the day in your social sector, dear Cancer, encouraging you to prioritize your happiness goals. A Sun-Venus aspect active today can be a little troublesome, however, as it seems to emphasize diverging needs. The Sun is currently putting a spotlight on your need to reach out, connect, and mingle (and the Moon is quite happy with this). On the other hand, Venus is traveling through your home and family sector, and some of your greatest pleasures are simple, comfortable, and familiar. Venus may be outnumbered, but this can leave you in a vague state of dissatisfaction. Do your best to divide your time well, which involves going all in with whatever you’re doing.

Leo

Leo

The Moon spends the day at the top of your solar chart, dear Leo, and its harmony with the Sun in your practical second house suggests you’re especially invested in your work, business, or the practical side of your life. Even so, the Sun forms a clashing aspect with Venus today, and you can experience some discontent. The Sun is currently encouraging your attention to your resources and comfort levels, and Venus, on the other hand, is moving through your communications sector, stimulating a real love of branching out, diversifying, trying on new ideas, learning, and connecting. On your better days, you can manage both, but today, you may feel a little divided. The tendency may be to overcompensate or overindulge, but do your best to find more creative ways to satisfy your varied needs.

Virgo

Virgo

The Moon spends the day in your sector of spirit and adventure, dear Virgo, harmonizing with the Sun in your sign. With this combination, you feel more natural, spontaneous, outgoing, and on top of things. Even so, Venus and the Sun form a minor challenging aspect, and you could feel that something’s missing or just a little off. And, with Venus in your sector of comfort and security, you may be tempted to feed your discontent with things that you think make you happy. Watch for borrowing from your future today, not just with money, but with time and energy! Look for ways to enjoy yourself without overindulging, or if you need a treat, make it a moderate one, since judgment is not stellar under current transits.

Libra

Libra

The Moon spends the day in your intimacy sector, dear Libra, encouraging you to go within for a nice dose of healthy introspection. The Sun in your privacy sector is in full agreement. Not only are these sectors similarly private, the Sun and Moon form a reinforcing, supportive aspect with one another. You’re likely to benefit from some time observing and investigating. Even so, Venus is currently transiting your sign, putting you out there — quietly, but still powerfully. You are in demand and getting noticed, which tends to conflict with today’s drives. You’re creative enough to make everything worth, but do watch for a tendency to appease and agree just so you can make a problem go away, as it’s likely to be more than you bargained for.

Scorpio

Scorpio

The Sun and Venus are in different signs and houses of your chart, as they often are, dear Scorpio, and this usually doesn’t pose a problem. In fact, it can help you diversify. But today, the Sun and Venus form a challenging relationship, and the different drives seem to clash. The Sun is encouraging social expression and attention to your happiness goals, while Venus is nudging you to find extra pleasure in spending time to yourself. On another day, you’re happy to do both, but today, these needs conflict, leaving you with a fear of missing out if you go in either direction. The Moon is in agreement with the Sun, transiting your partnership sector all day, and teaming up seems to be what will benefit you most now.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius

The Sun is stimulating your ambitions this month, dear Sagittarius, and you’re especially aware of your obligations, work, and performance. Today, however, the Sun clashes with Venus, and with Venus in a sociable area of your solar chart, you can feel divided. This feeling can put you in a state of indecision, which is especially comfortable for a Sagittarius! Alternatively, you may decide to give whatever you’re doing at the moment special attention and compartmentalize, which could save your good humor. The Moon agrees with the Sun, as it spends the day in your work and health sector, encouraging you to take care of business.

Capricorn

Capricorn

Venus is stimulating your ambitions these days, dear Capricorn, and you’re finding your work and responsibilities more interesting and satisfying, even. Planning ahead and mapping out goals is something you enjoy doing with Venus at the top of your solar chart. Today, however, the Sun forms a minor but irritating aspect to Venus, and with the Sun in a much more carefree area of your solar chart, you can feel very torn! On the one hand, duties call more insistently than usual, and on the other, you’re yearning for more life experience or a change of pace. While on most days you can compartmentalize these things well, today you’re more likely to feel divided. Aim for a compromise, and watch that you don’t make poor choices, just because you’re not sure of yourself.

Aquarius

Aquarius

A good part of you is enjoying throwing yourself into a project or even a relationship these days, dear Aquarius, and the more absorbing, the better. This is due to the Sun’s current transit of your intimacy sector. However, there is another part of you that’s eager to learn or experience new things and uncomplicate your life. While you can make both work in some manner on most days, an aspect today suggests you can be torn between the two right now. In fact, it can keep — or put — you in a state of limbo. Funnily enough, this aspect can lead to overindulgence, perhaps as a means to self-soothe. Be on the lookout for this, but be sure you don’t overlook the other opportunities of the day, either, which can involve full-on cooperation with loved ones or satisfying shared activities.

Pisces

Pisces

The Sun is currently transiting your partnership sector, dear Pisces, which is one of the most companionable transits. It’s a time when you enjoy balancing give and take, and also when you tend to weigh up pros and cons. You’re inclined to want to keep the peace. Venus in your solar chart, however, is finding pleasure in digging deeper into projects and relationships, and would rather not keep up appearances if it means ignoring the more profound issues. Today, these bodies clash, and you can be giving off some mixed signals to others. The signals may be just as jumbled on the inside! However, the vague discontent you may feel as a result of all of this is temporary, and from it, you may very well discover new ideas or interests.
