Get A Jump On Tomorrow….

Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, August 23rd

by Rick Levine

 

General Horoscope

An interplay between expressive and passive energy repetitively cycles us through angst, frustration, and resolution. A wild Mars-Uranus connection releases pent-up feelings early in the day. But the steady Taurus Moon strives to cling to the status quo, even as she runs through five uncomfortable aspects. Finally, impulsive Mars hits the wall of compulsive Saturn early tomorrow morning, requiring us to apply the gas and brake pedals simultaneously.

Aries Horoscope MAR 21 – APR 19

It’s easy to forget your real worth now if you’re confused by a spiral of self-doubt. Although you may be the target of someone’s negativity, other people’s actions might actually be a reminder to examine your own role in the current conflict. Don’t succumb to the temptation of escaping into indulgences or denial. Instead, buckle down and overcome the resistance by tackling your obligations one at a time in an orderly manner. Work hard in silence; let your success be your noise.

Taurus Horoscope APR 20 – MAY 20

Your inner work is preparing you to make external changes that involve others in your life. Although this emotional process should be relatively straightforward while the Moon is visiting your determined sign, you could meet one challenge after another now. Don’t even consider quitting, no matter how weary you are of confronting adversity. The looming Mars-Saturn conjunction is one of the best transits for concentration and productivity, even if you’re annoyed about how the current circumstances are unfolding. Put your suppressed anger to good use and you will be blessed with something lasting to show for it.

Gemini Horoscope MAY 21 – JUN 20

A sudden realization reveals a radical solution to an existing problem today. But you must consistently follow through on your intentions or people will lose faith in you. A hard-core conjunction between expressive Mars and repressive Saturn imposes limits that separate truth from fiction now. Relationships can be tested by a lack of trust or by mounting stress; if you value the connection, focus on fixing the situation instead of adding more emotional fuel to the fire. St. Thomas Aquinas wrote, “A man has free choice to the extent that he is rational.”

Cancer Horoscope JUN 21 – JUL 22

An out-of-the-box breakthrough at work drives home the idea that you can do anything you set your mind to now. However, hot-to-trot Mars pushes against the cooling authority of Saturn, causing frustration to build to a breaking point. Resolving your dilemma seems impossible today, for there’s no easy way to express your feelings without creating an unwanted negative response in return. Take a walk, engage in strenuous exercise, or do some yoga — anything that burns off excess energy. Ultimately, the solutions based on meticulous planning combined with hard work are the ones that will accomplish the most.

Leo Horoscope JUL 23 – AUG 22

You might believe your new plan will solve all that ails you. However, a tough Mars-Saturn hookup in your 5th House of Self-Expression puts an end to any pie-in-the-sky thinking. Forget about making grand gestures and fulfilling your desire to be king of the jungle. Instead, just take the practical route and focus all your energy now on overcoming the obstacles in front of you. This is your time to squash the lingering resistance that prevents you from experiencing happiness. As Gandhi said, “Satisfaction lies in the effort, not in the attainment. Full effort is full victory.”

Virgo Horoscope AUG 23 – SEP 22

Escaping to an exotic location might sound like the spiritual antidote you need now, but the practical realities of your life won’t allow such irresponsible behavior. Assertive Mars joins up with make-it-real Saturn in your 4th House of Foundations, requiring you to take a small but solid step toward upgrading your domestic life. Strengthen family bonds by working for a common cause. Choose your actions carefully, for anything put into motion now will produce positive results, as long as you don’t expect it to be an overnight success.

Libra Horoscope SEP 23 – OCT 22

You may experience a heightened sense of frustration now as energetically expressive Mars slams into the confines of Saturn’s walls. This is not the best time to push your opinions on others. Easing up in your approach helps to create the enduring impact you hope to achieve. Don’t wag your tongue or scatter your energies; instead, focus your intentions and act with conviction. Handling issues with serious determination can finally free you from the constraints that have limited your success in the past.

Scorpio Horoscope OCT 23 – NOV 21

You prefer to keep your vulnerabilities hidden under lock and key, but they can still find a way to surface. Although you may be managing a crisis in the material world, there are other issues to consider now. While you could be short of cash or feel restrained by someone who isn’t acknowledging your true worth, the real dilemma is your inability to just be yourself. Remember, you might be bringing leftover feelings of rejection into this new situation. Forgiving the past empowers you to face the present with compassion for everyone you encounter. Loving others starts with loving yourself.

Sagittarius Horoscope NOV 22 – DEC 21

Choices made now are likely to have long-term consequences, especially regarding your career. Sobering Saturn anchors impulsive Mars in your inspirational sign, so don’t expect a success story to develop if you act out of haste. The bigger the commitment, the more cautious you should be about making it. If you feel competitive juices flowing or your adrenaline rising, contain the excitement so you can direct it with clear purpose and maximum control. Channel your passion into your work.

Capricorn Horoscope DEC 22 – JAN 19

A complex combination of overreaction and self-restraint makes for an emotionally trying day. The planetary pressure builds and you could feel either confined or ignored as assertive Mars meets up with oppressive Saturn. Use these conflicting energies in a constructive manner by hatching a plan that is consistent with your destiny as you see it. This moment in time is just the start of a long process, so don’t worry if everything seems to move in slow motion for a while. The art of discipline is just choosing between what you want now and what you want most.

Aquarius Horoscope JAN 20 – FEB 18

Hang on to your hat, for an instant replay of the past few months is possible today. You are caught in the middle of a cosmic game of chance, reminding you of other times in your life when you didn’t get what you wanted, or when you fell short of your target. One minute you’re not sure of your next move, and the next moment you’re impulsively jumping into a new venture or relationship without considering the ramifications. But don’t try to make anything permanent now. Letting the energy play on through allows you to find a unique solution to this familiar predicament.

Pisces Horoscope FEB 19 – MAR 20

Power struggles are spawned by your bright ideas and the subsequent resistance you encounter. However, self-restraint is the key ingredient for moving through this dynamic phase when impetuous Mars slams into cautious Saturn in your 10th House of Career. What began as a whimsical inspiration now requires planning and management. Push ahead with determination, even when pleasure tempts you to relax. Skipping a party or missing a concert won’t feel like a sacrifice when keeping your commitment to yourself can be so much more satisfying in the long run.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, August 22nd

 

Aries

Aries Horoscope
Aries

The Sun moves into your work and health sector, dear Aries, and will transit here for a month. It’s a good time to take charge of daily routines. You can be especially busy getting your life into better order now. Your ruler, Mars, moves out of its post-retrograde shadow today, and this can translate to more energy and direction. Mars is also moving towards an alignment with Saturn – an aspect that occurs only once every two years or so and that requires you to take responsibility for a matter. There is some tension to the day, especially if you feel the pace is not quick enough. There can be some annoying grunt work to take care of now.

Taurus


Taurus

Today, the Sun enters the sector of your chart that rules your individuality and creative expression, dear Taurus, where it will transit until September 22nd. Mercury and Venus are already here, and with the Sun’s arrival, this is an exceptionally expressive and creative time for you. This is a “show and tell” house of your chart, and it’s a time for expressing your talents, abilities, and affections. A stronger urge is with you to create, put talents to use, show others what you can do, experience and enjoy romance, and partake of many of life’s pleasures. You are less cautious with your heart, and more spontaneous in your actions during this pleasing cycle. Today, try not to jump to conclusions or resort to tactics to get your way. Aim to get more information before making important decisions. A feeling of being resented by others is likely to pass quickly, but can be disconcerting.

Gemini


Gemini

Today, the Sun is at the lowest point of your solar chart, dear Gemini, and a month-long transit of your solar fourth house begins now. During this cycle, strong reminders of your roots, home life, and loved ones motivate you. Focus is on your closest ties, foundation, or home life. This is a time for bringing healing and wholeness, as well as some refinement and organization, to your home life and family relationships. It’s a natural time for anchoring and nesting on a psychological level. It’s certainly not the most adventurous or outgoing cycle in the Sun’s journey through your chart, but it’s important for a sense of identity, comfort, and self-knowledge. Today, however, there can be some feelings of frustration as your plans might fall through or you could encounter delays. Watch for a tendency for some to be envious or devious. However, these are likely to be minor hurdles.

Cancer


Cancer

The Sun moves into your communications sector today, dear Cancer, where it will spend time for a month. This is a busy, engaged period of the year for you. It’s a time of increased awareness of what needs to be repaired, healed, and improved in your personal environment, communications, and interactions with others. You may be looking towards subjects of study or topics of interest as ways to expand your knowledge, but also as means to define yourself more completely. With Mars in your work sector at the same time, you can be especially driven to organize, sort, and improve your daily life. Emotional energy is a little bit tense today, however, so keep your wits about you, and avoid undue stress over differences in opinion.

Leo


Leo

The Sun finishes its yearly, month-long transit of your sign today, dear Leo, and begins its transit of your resources sector until September 22nd. You’ll find that this cycle is an especially grounding one. It would benefit you to increase activities that remind you of the importance and beauty of the “here and now”. It’s also a time for making the most of your natural talents and abilities – for building and developing these things. You could be motivated to take charge of your personal finances and extra care of your valuables. Today is a little tricky, however, as there can be some tensions with others, who may not be as cooperative or open to your ideas just for now.

Virgo

Virgo Symbol/Glyph
Virgo

The Sun enters your sign today, dear Virgo, and will continue its visit until September 22nd. This is a time when you are especially noticeable and effective. If you’ve wanted to make changes to the personal image you project, then this is a superb time for doing so. It’s also a time for more impact and personal presence. Make the most of this period by being positive and believing in yourself, as this is the start of a new solar year. In just over a week, a Solar Eclipse will occur in your sign, reinforcing new beginnings and personal change. Today, there can be some power struggles with a lover, children, or friends, or nervous tension regarding same. These are likely to smooth out as you become more aware of fear or guilt motivating tense interactions.

Libra

Libra Astrology Glyph-Symbol
Libra

The Sun begins its transit of your solar twelfth house today, dear Libra, and will continue to influence this area of your chart until September 22nd. Generally speaking and reinforced by Jupiter’s presence in your solar twelfth house, you quite readily help others out, and this trait is in strong focus now. It’s a yearly, month-long cycle that is necessary for reflection, rest, and recollection. You are gathering your strength for busier times to come, but also reflecting upon recent events and shedding attitudes and situations that have run their natural course. You may put some things behind you now if they’re no longer supportive. This can be a time of connecting with your more spiritual side, but for some, there can be a feeling of being a little lost temporarily. The Solar Eclipse in just over a week can help direct you. Today, there can be some underhanded or deceptive behavior to deal with. Aim to get things out in the open.

Scorpio

Scorpio Symbol Glyph
Scorpio

The Sun begins its transit of your solar eleventh house today, Scorpio, and will continue to influence this area of your chart until September 22nd. You are less concerned with career or life plan goals now, and increasingly interested in what makes you happy and how you fit in with others or contribute to the group/community. Socializing and networking can figure even more strongly in your life now. Involvement with a group or association can be in focus. You can be more actively participating and contributing, and can benefit from teamwork. While this can be a personally popular time, today there can be a feeling of being slighted or overlooked. Know that this may not bet the best time for pushing ahead with plans. As well, watch for a tendency to overindulge as an attempt to tame inner discontent.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius Glyph Symbol
Sagittarius

The Sun begins its transit of your reputation and career sector today, dear Sagittarius, and will continue to influence this area of your chart until September 22nd. The spotlight is on your performance now. You are more noticeable and accountable than usual during this cycle. You could assume more responsibilities now, and you can be especially goal-oriented or ambitious. You can come to a high point of the year in your career or reputation. People in positions of power are more likely to notice you and listen to you. Pride can help your reputation, but too much of it, of course, can be damaging now. Today, there can be some feelings of blocks. While you may want to push ahead with personal plans, you could encounter resistance. Do your best to take your time with new initiatives and avoid depending on someone to help you out, just for the time being.

Capricorn

Capricorn Symbol/Glyph
Capricorn

The Sun begins its transit of your sector of adventure and spirit today, dear Capricorn, and will continue to influence this area of your solar chart until September 22nd. This area of your solar chart has been busy recently, so you’re no stranger to its spirited, spontaneous energy, but with the Sun here now, you’re likely to want to take action or take charge. It’s an excellent cycle in which to lift yourself above your usual routines, even in little ways, so that you can better consider the bigger picture. You are more adventurous and curious. You might do more studying, learning, and venturing out and about. Your aspirations and ideals are stronger driving forces in your life now. Today, however, you could feel subtly undermined. Avoid negative thinking as much as possible. You are a little more sensitive to criticism today, but once you take some time to recollect yourself, you might find that it serves to motivate you to better yourself or your situation.

Aquarius


Aquarius

The Sun begins its transit of your solar eighth house today, dear Aquarius, and will continue to influence this area of your chart until September 22nd. This is a time of year when you might be going through some form of self-transformation. There can be determination to get rid of a bad habit or self-defeating attitude so that you gain more personal power and a stronger sense of personal accomplishment. Changes, both inner and outer, tend to occur now that remind you that you’re growing, not stagnating. There can be increased focus on intimate connections and sharing, and for some of you, financial or emotional support are important topics in your life now. Today, however, there can be some tensions in interpersonal relationships if you or a partner focuses on the negative, which is a tendency now.

Pisces


Pisces

The Sun begins its transit of your partnership sector today, dear Pisces, and will continue to influence this area of your chart until September 22nd. You are drawn to others during this cycle, and there can be a spotlight on close friendships and partnerships. You can learn a lot about yourself and your life through others now, as they can provide a mirror to certain aspects of yourself that you haven’t been clearly seeing until now. This is a time when compromise and negotiation tend to serve you best. Today, however, there can be some tension in your social life. Responsibilities can be weighing heavier than usual, and you may be tempted to take a shortcut. However, obstacles encountered now can stimulate inventive thinking and new approaches.

Your Love Horoscopes for the Week of August 22nd

 

 

 

 

Your Love Horoscopes for the Week of August 22nd

 

  • General Horoscope

    Love and communication will be magical this week, but sex? Eh, not so much… Do what you can to maximize the positive trends available to you and your partner, and remember that the physical dimension of your relationship is only a portion of intimacy. With Mercury conjunct Jupiter on Monday and Venus conjunct Jupiter on Saturday, loving kindness can rule the week. Mars conjunct Saturn on Wednesday and Mars square Neptune on Friday might lead to disappointment in the bedroom, but it doesn’t have to be disastrous. Focus on the positive!

  • Aries Horoscope MAR 21 – APR 19

    The most beautiful part about your love life this week will be how genuinely helpful your sweetheart is. He or she will take care of the everyday tasks that you’re either too tired to tackle, or just don’t enjoy doing. Whether it’s picking up the dry cleaning, taking out the trash or even mowing the lawn one thing is certain — you’ll be grateful to have such an incredibly giving partner in your world.

  • Taurus Horoscope APR 20 – MAY 20

    This will be a week you feel completely loved by your sweetheart. He or she might take you out for an ultra-romantic date night this Saturday. Or, perhaps he or she will surprise you with an over the top extravagant gift. While the two of you will feel very much in love, you might also be concerned about not having enough time for intimacy. Perhaps every time you try to steal away some alone time lately there has been an interruption. If so, do your best to take it in stride. It’s only temporary.

  • Gemini Horoscope MAY 21 – JUN 20

    Your love life might not be easy breezy this week. If you’re in a committed partnership, it’s possible that you and your mate feel that your relationship is a bit stale. It’s possible that life simply got in the way lately and as a result, the two of you haven’t been relating as much. Or, it’s possible that there’s a tense situation you’re both dealing with that is chipping away at your love connection. If this is the case you’ll want to address it right away. Ignoring the elephant in the room may have disastrous consequences.

  • Cancer Horoscope JUN 21 – JUL 22

    Communication will be the saving grace to your love life this week. You and your sweetheart will have no trouble expressing the mutual affection and respect that you feel towards each other. You’ll also want to do something nice for your mate without expecting anything in return. Aim for Saturday to surprise him or her with a beautiful love letter, card or even a romantic weekend getaway to a place you both treasure.

  • Leo Horoscope JUL 23 – AUG 22

    This week, you might want to take a complete time out in matters of the heart. It doesn’t look like you’ll have much support in the passion or romance department. In fact, if you are dating someone and things aren’t going well, this could be a break up week for you. If this does happen, it’ll be something you’ve already seen coming for a while so the good news is that you won’t feel blindsided. But that doesn’t mean you won’t also feel a little sad.

  • Virgo Horoscope AUG 23 – SEP 22

    This is your week for love! Make the most of Jupiter’s final days in your sign and be sure to open yourself up to all of the most exciting possibilities life and love have to offer. Once Jupiter leaves Virgo on September 9, he won’t return for another twelve years! This week, he’ll embrace love planet Venus on Saturday allowing you to enjoy life’s pleasures to the fullest. This might be a week where you meet someone special if you’re single. If you’re attached, you’ll feel the love from your partner.

  • Libra Horoscope SEP 23 – OCT 22

    The best thing you can do this week for your love life is to steal away time with your sweetie far away from the maddening crowd. Whether this means the two of you keeping a low profile at home or something more in depth is up to you. This would be an ideal week to get away together to a destination that nourishes your soul and is more about promoting peace and love than glitz and glamour. Consider a few days at a spa retreat. You’ll be restored and so will your relationship.

  • Scorpio Horoscope OCT 23 – NOV 21

    Your romantic happiness this week will somehow revolve around your social life. It’s possible that you and your mate will be extremely busy attending parties and other events together. The good news is that if this is the case you’ll both thoroughly enjoy the time you’re spending with friends and acquaintances. Another possibility is that you and your lover are working towards a humanitarian endeavor together. If so, this week there appears to be success in your efforts. You’ll be thrilled!

  • Sagittarius Horoscope NOV 22 – DEC 21

    This might be a sobering week for you in matters of the heart. It appears that you’re dealing with a major responsibility that you don’t necessarily want. The reality however, is that you must accept this burden and do what you can to take charge of the situation. This is a significant lesson in maturity and duty — whether you like it or not. When it comes to your love life, it’s possible that you simply won’t have the energy for your mate. Your partner will understand.

  • Capricorn Horoscope DEC 22 – JAN 19

    Setting your sights on something bigger than you can see, taste, touch or feel is the theme for you this week. Fortunately, it appears that you won’t be on this voyage alone. Your sweetheart is going along for the ride and will help to make the adventure even more meaningful. This can be a spiritual expedition you both embark on but it doesn’t have to be connected to traditional religion. It might have to do with philosophical or metaphysical pursuits. Enjoy the journey!

  • Aquarius Horoscope JAN 20 – FEB 18

    This could be a remarkable week for you financially and if so, it’ll somehow involve your partner. Perhaps you and your mate have recently made an investment that you both hoped would pay off handsomely. If so, this Saturday you might hear the news you’ve been waiting for and it’s likely to be even better than anticipated. Another possibility is that your partner will receive a generous raise or that one of you will inherit money. Wow!

  • Pisces Horoscope FEB 19 – MAR 20

    Be sure to maximize what is sure to be the most magnificent week for you as far as your relationship potential. On Saturday, Venus will embrace Jupiter. Both of these planets are currently wedged in your 7th House of Partnership making magic happen in this area of your life. When the two luckiest planets in the zodiac align by precise mathematical degree however, the best of what it has to offer is triggered. Lucky for you, it’ll help support your love life. This might be the week you get engaged or married. One way or another love flows and blesses your heart.

Get A Jump on Tomorrow….

Your Daily Horoscopes for Sunday, August 21st

by Rick Levine

 

General Horoscope

We are fired up with sensible ideas today, eager to apply our individual skills to current problems and get things done. The enthusiastic Aries Moon gains early morning support from assertive Mars and taskmaster Saturn, enabling us to organize our thoughts and manage the separate parts of a complex project. However, we may experience an undercurrent of resistance that impedes our progress when Luna forms a stressful square with suspicious Pluto.

Aries Horoscope MAR 21 – APR 19

Your plans begin to take shape as your impulsive reactions gain momentum throughout the day. Stabilizing Saturn enters the picture today, enabling you to construct a solid foundation on which to build your future. Although you are feeling your oats now that the Moon has returned to your incorrigible sign, her meeting with shadowy Pluto can hijack your efforts and significantly alter your priorities. Continue to keep your eyes on the final destination. Eliminating distractions as they arise improves your chances for success.

Taurus Horoscope APR 20 – MAY 20

You don’t like to be pushed into anything against your will, even if it’s for your own good. Although you possess the good sense not to resist earlier in the day, you might grow resentful later when you wish you were doing anything else. But rather than obsessing about your current uncertainty, shift your attention to someone or something you can count on. There’s no need to create a drama where there isn’t one.

Gemini Horoscope MAY 21 – JUN 20

You’re excited about the prospects of doing something special with a close friend or relative today. However, there’s no need to use your current plans to escape from previous promises. In fact, fulfilling your obligations early in the day frees you up to travel the outer edges of your mental explorations later on. But don’t try to convince anyone that your philosophy is the only one that matters. Although you might not see how all the separate pieces of your life are interrelated in this moment, you will understand soon enough. Patience is the companion of wisdom.

Cancer Horoscope JUN 21 – JUL 22

You’re ready to spread your wings and fly today, yet run into complex dynamics that force you to change your plans. You could encounter delays that turn out to be the result of someone covertly working against your efforts. However, you can’t face an unseen enemy; it’s like shadow boxing with an invisible opponent. Instead of looking outside yourself for answers, explore your own resistance to success. When you understand your fears, the external obstacles will likely fade away. As Carl Jung wrote, “We always see our own unavowed mistakes in our opponent.”

Leo Horoscope JUL 23 – AUG 22

You’re eager to go the extra mile today because you see the potential for beauty everywhere you look. Fortunately, you can rely on your solid thinking as long as you don’t let the current spontaneity of the Aries Moon run off with your day. But Luna harmonizes with feisty Mars and authoritarian Saturn in your 5th House of Self-Expression, urging you to bust out of your self-imposed restraints. It’s challenging to find the Goldilocks point where everything is exactly just right. Perfection is in the eyes of the beholder.

Virgo Horoscope AUG 23 – SEP 22

You’re in an odd state of mind now because you want to mingle with interesting people yet have no patience for any opinions that conflict with your own. You could end up planning to attend a social event, only to back out at the last moment when you realize the same old people will be in attendance. You currently crave the excitement that goes along with rubbing elbows with new and different people, and you won’t even have a chance to do so if you’re at home sitting on the sofa. Forget about all the logical reasons to turn down an invitation today; just smile and say yes.

Libra Horoscope SEP 23 – OCT 22

You don’t usually mind redirecting love and admiration away from yourself and onto your friend or partner. However, you grow annoyed now when someone else consistently tries to commandeer the center of attention. The spontaneous Aries Moon shines in your 7th House of Others, drawing the crowd’s attention elsewhere and you don’t like feeling as if you’re invisible. There’s no need to fight against the natural flow of energy since you will attract your fair share of recognition soon enough. A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle.

Scorpio Horoscope OCT 23 – NOV 21

Your mental bandwidth is narrowly focused on all the things you must finish today. Separately, each item sounds manageable, but all together they seem so daunting that you might not know where to begin. A little forethought is a good idea, but too much thinking now sets major delays into motion and places you even further behind the eight ball. Don’t worry about the problems you encounter; you can successfully handle them one at a time. Author Saul Bellow wrote, “Whoever wants to reach a distant goal must take small steps.”

Sagittarius Horoscope NOV 22 – DEC 21

You’re flying off into the wild blue yonder today, but you only have a small amount of gas in your tank. The planetary emphasis on Fire signs ensures you won’t be lacking for wonderful activities to capture your imagination. However, building pressure from the mid-week Mars-Saturn conjunction is already slowing your progress and forcing you to be hyperaware of every move you make. Easy does it for the next couple of days if you want the magic to last.

Capricorn Horoscope DEC 22 – JAN 19

Ingenious ideas are buzzing around inside your head now, but you may be insecure about sharing them with anyone else. The pioneering Aries Moon is traveling through your 4th House of Foundations, empowering you to explore creative options at home. Although this might sound contradictory, there is so much you can do without venturing far into the world. Unfortunately, refusing is tricky if someone insists that you participate in his or her adventure. As Paulo Coelho writes, “When you say yes to others, make sure you are not saying no to yourself.”

Aquarius Horoscope JAN 20 – FEB 18

Everything seems to be fine today until you open your mouth. The bossy Aries Moon in your 3rd House of Communication squares unrelenting Pluto, bringing hidden issues out into the blinding light of day. You might be surprised when you run into negativity from someone you thought was a friend. Nevertheless, it’s impossible to overcome a problem unless you identify it. Better the devil you know than the devil you don’t.

Pisces Horoscope FEB 19 – MAR 20

You might try to power your way through a tricky situation today, but somehow keep stalling at the same point in your process. It doesn’t even seem to help when others cheer you on from the sidelines. In fact, the support you receive encourages you to keep pushing in the same ineffective manner, setting you up for a fall. Fortunately, there’s a lesser known way to reach your goals; working smarter, not harder all but guarantees your success.

If Today is Your Birthday: August 20

happy-birthday-cake

If Today is Your Birthday: August 20

You are a hard worker, yet you also enjoy the comforts of home and family. Striking a balance between these two passions is important for your all-around happiness. You don’t turn to others for advice or help very readily, simply because you find much satisfaction doing things on your own; yet you are also highly companionable. You enjoy conversation, friendly companionship, and a peaceful environment. You try to avoid discord as much as you can, and due to your graciousness and gentle manner, you usually succeed. You are excellent at strategy. You may cling to your lifestyle and don’t make changes as readily as others. An overall feeling of stability is important to you. You are a very ardent, charming lover, and you may be drawn to partners who are emotional and a tad dramatic. Famous people born today: Robert Plant, Fred Durst, Connie Chung, James Marsters, Andrew Garfield, Amy Adams, Demi Lovato, John Noble.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

Your birthday falls shortly after a Full Moon this year, suggesting a period ahead of communication and teaching. You may be turned to for advice more frequently, and you are very willing to offer your help. This is a strong year for publicity and any other endeavors that involve spreading the word. As well, your ability to be objective–or to see the “big picture”–can be especially pronounced and rewarding this year.

Saturn harmonizes with your Sun, starting in March 2017, indicating benefits from keeping your feet on the ground and paying attention to, and honoring, tradition as well as tried-and-true methods. Work you have done in the past begins to pay off now – not necessarily in dramatic ways, but in small, measurable ways. You may be recognized or rewarded in some way for the efforts you put forth. When you project a more responsible and credible “you”, people in authority are more inclined to appreciate you and recognize your work. This is a time in which you put your life in order in some significant manner. The key to success under this influence is adopting a realistic, practical, disciplined, and orderly approach to your life. Having a strong sense for both tradition and innovation opens doors for you. You have a real sense of tomorrow now, so it’s easier for you to take the necessary steps to make all of your “tomorrows” better.

The opportunity to grow through your love and social connections this year is especially strong. You are seeking intensity in love, and you are especially aware of the importance of healthy relating and intimacy. You could renew and deepen love commitments or social connections. Strong and stimulating–even motivating–attractions to others are likely. Secret loves or attractions may develop and existing relationships tend to rise to a higher level of insight and understanding. Romantic relationships and attractions have a fated quality to them this year. This could be a year when you fall in love, and this could be with a person, an activity, or a cause! Meeting someone who transforms your life, and more specifically your values and attitude towards love, is possible. Strong existing relationships are likely to grow and transform in rewarding ways, as you are more open than usual to intensity and passion. Your finances could also improve dramatically this year, generally due to your increased ability to strategize and cut out frivolous expenses.

Your ability to express yourself and to solve problems is enhanced. You may have opportunities to travel this year, and matters related to publishing, teaching, and writing should go especially well. You may find that you have the right information at the right time this year. You could also have big ideas and plans. Work, especially in communications, goes well. You are able to visualize in broader terms and see the “big picture” now. Your optimism can help you to attract positive circumstances into your life. You are especially enthusiastic about your ideas, and expressing yourself comes easily. Public relations and negotiations tend to run especially smoothly. This is a time for making long-range plans, seeing the big picture, and thinking about what is really important to you in the long run.

There can be significant involvement in publishing, television, or other areas where sharing ideas with large groups is a theme.

With Mars conjunct Saturn in your Solar Return chart, you are more determined and hard-working than usual. This is an excellent time to get organized and to stick with projects through to the end. When you face obstacles to your goals, which is a likely scenario this year, you are likely to just keep on pushing. Progress may be slow, but it’s steady and solid. What you accomplish now will benefit you for years to come.

You are likely to attract growth-oriented relationships into your life. Your powers of negotiation are very strong.

You may win respect and recognition for your work or craft this year. There is a good balance between learning from tradition and seeing things progressively.

Transiting Uranus harmonizes with your Sun from June 2017 forward. Your personality is sparkling during this period, which is sure to attract new circumstances and people into your life. Exciting (not jarring) changes and new interests characterize the period. It’s easier than ever to express your unique individuality, and if this involves changing careers or jobs, a new love affair, or an entirely new hobby, it’s something that takes you forward into unexplored territory. You are more willing to adapt to new circumstances, ideas, and unfamiliar situations this year. It’s a good time to join organizations and groups and to attend meetings or social events. You can find especially creative solutions to problems.

You are better able to come to a good balance in attitude this year, and many life departments can benefit. You are more patient and willing to use strategy in your financial and romantic life. You’re in an exceptionally strong position for taking advantage of new opportunities while keeping your feet on the ground. There can be recognition for your work or talents. Relationships are in focus and you are likely to find yourself in big demand.

 

2016 is a Number One year for you. Ruled by the Sun. This is a year of action. The seeds you plant now, you will reap later. Others might find you less sociable, as you are busier than ever and you focus on your activities and your needs. Still, you are outgoing and your initiative is stronger than ever. Advice – Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence.

2017 will be a Number Two year for you. Ruled by the Moon. This is a year of potential companionship. It is a quiet, gentle, and mostly harmonious year that is less active than other years. Instead, you are more responsive to the needs of others. If you are patient and open yourself up in a gentle manner, you will attract both things and people. This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice – be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Saturday, August 20th

 

Aries

Aries Horoscope
Aries

This can be a good time for creatively combining routine and more adventurous activities, dear Aries, as well as for thinking in big terms while attending to details. Socially, there can be some difficulty getting plans to come together, however, or you may encounter some resistance to some of your ideas and desires. The Moon continues to transit your solar house of hidden things until mid-afternoon when it enters your sign, and you crave more connection with others and to the world around you. Before then, you can be quite content to keep things on the down-low.

Taurus


Taurus

Your needs for attachment and for keeping things casual can often clash these days, dear Taurus, leaving you wondering about your feelings and relationships. However, you may be able to reach a creative balance today and end up satisfying both needs quite expertly. There can be some difficulties balancing your responsibilities with quality time, however. The Moon moves into your solar twelfth house mid-afternoon when you may be craving more emotional space or even a little bit of anonymity.

Gemini


Gemini

Life is a little easier to manage today than it has been, dear Gemini, and you might find that you settle in quite well now. There is good and creative cooperation in your private life, and this gives you a nice feeling of ease and flow. Family and partnerships are not always in agreement these days, but today, you’re more likely to manage satisfying attention to both. Plans and ideas may not come together as readily, as you could find that everyone has a different opinion on what to do and where to go. The Moon’s move into your friendship sector by mid-afternoon draws your attention to relaxing, pressure-free activities.

Cancer


Cancer

You may have been struggling with balancing your responsibilities with personal interests these days, dear Cancer, but today, you can come up with clever ways to combine the two. You may be able to turn a chore into a pleasant pursuit, or turn a hobby into a practical money maker, for example. Ideas are especially enterprising today. Money matters can be difficult to agree upon, however, and you may very well find that going about pursuing your goals independently is favored over team efforts just for now. The Moon’s move to the top of your solar chart mid-afternoon increases your ambitions and your visibility as well.

Leo


Leo

You may be able to find a nice balance between sticking with tradition and trying out new things today, dear Leo. You may be taking small, educated risks that seem to pay off, particularly on creative levels. You may not easily come to an agreement with a partner or someone close to you this morning – at least, not without a lot of back and forth. You’ll find that you move from a relatively serious approach to the world to a more hands-on, spirited attitude by mid-afternoon.

Virgo

Virgo Symbol/Glyph
Virgo

You might find that you do a great job of both attending to personal needs and paying attention to family or loved ones today, dear Virgo. People may support your desires, help you out, or step out of the way in order to let you pursue your heart’s desire. This can be a good day for cooperating with others towards a common goal. It may not be easy to get enough time to yourself or time and space to get your work or chores done this morning, however. You are especially likable today, which is particularly welcome after a couple of days of being in a spotlight you may not have wanted to be in!

Libra

Libra Astrology Glyph-Symbol
Libra

You may have a difficult time coming to an agreement with a lover, friend, or child this morning, dear Libra. Ideas and plans can be at cross purposes now. However, there is very good energy for communicating about those things you normally may not know how to articulate. Conversations about the past can be encouraging, and they might even lead to the recycling of old ideas into fancy and exciting new ones. You can be very focused on handling the practical or business side of your life until mid-afternoon when your social needs come into sharper focus.

Scorpio

Scorpio Symbol Glyph
Scorpio

This is a good day for combining the positive elements of tradition and unconventionality, dear Scorpio. You can be especially resourceful and open to new approaches, yet also grounded in reality. This morning, there can be some challenge juggling responsibilities and quality time with family or down time for yourself. Not everyone is going to agree with your plans. There is a distinct move from a playful, creative approach to your day to a more practical focus from about the middle of the afternoon forward.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius Glyph Symbol
Sagittarius

Your enterprising nature is strong today, dear Sagittarius. You are resourceful and may come up with powerful ideas for career or far-reaching long-term plans and goals. Your ingenuity can be recognized or in demand now. This is a good time for taking the lead, guiding, and managing others. There can be some difficulty reaching agreements on more philosophical matters this morning, however, and perhaps even simpler topics such as navigation and directions. The Moon’s move to Aries mid-afternoon tends to pick up your spirits and turn your focus to more playful or relaxing pursuits.

Capricorn

Capricorn Symbol/Glyph
Capricorn

You can find it rather easy to quench your thirst for more exciting or adventurous activities in your life today, dear Capricorn, while also getting in some much-needed relaxation or mental release. It’s an important time to let go of the tendency to overthink matters. The Moon’s move to your solar fourth house mid-afternoon reinforces the need for more emotional space and release from pressures, even if before that time you’re inclined to want to keep very busy and engaged. Seeing eye to eye on money, sharing, and ownership matters may not come as easily today. In fact, there can be a lot of back and forth before you’re ready to come to an agreement. However, it can be a good exercise in understanding.

Aquarius


Aquarius

Relationships can thrive today with a healthy balance between attachment and freedom, dear Aquarius. This balance is often quite tricky these days, but at least for now, you are getting the formula right, so take advantage! There can be some difficulty agreeing on what to do together or challenges making solid plans, however. You have a tendency to want to stay rooted and might even be on the inflexible side for a good portion of the day, but curiosity about the world around you picks up, and by mid-afternoon, you’re ready to diversify.

Pisces


Pisces

This can be a strong day for working with someone towards a common goal, dear Pisces. You may not be entirely certain whether you want to go about pursuing your goals independently and making executive decisions today, or if you would prefer to share decisions and have some company. However, you may very well come up with creative ways to do both. You may come to a very enterprising and bright idea with a partner or through brainstorming. The Moon moves out of your sign by mid-afternoon and some of the urgency you may have been feeling to feed your emotional needs begins to subside.

Get A Jump on Tomorrow….

Your Daily Horoscopes for Saturday, August 20th

by Rick Levine

 

General Horoscope

All the thinking in the world won’t improve a situation until we decide to do something with our knowledge. We’re open to many possibilities while the Moon wanders through imaginative Pisces, reminding us to open our hearts to others. But lunar oppositions to precise Mercury and propitious Jupiter in practical Virgo prompt us to focus on measurable results. The Moon’s shift into enterprising Aries at 3:18 pm EDT inspires us to initiate bold action.

Aries Horoscope MAR 21 – APR 19

You can tell that your world is in flux because there are more positive possibilities ahead now than negative ones. What seemed nearly impossible just yesterday is more than likely today. You don’t feel like you’re just glossing over the bad news; something is really shifting and you want to be a part of it. This is no time to idly stand by and wait for opportunity to knock on your door. President Abraham Lincoln said, “The best way to predict the future is to create it.”

Taurus Horoscope APR 20 – MAY 20

You are often content to follow the letter of the law. In fact, sometimes the social restraints add to your productivity because you accomplish more when you’re feeling safe and secure than when you’re uncertain about your role. Nevertheless, you might attempt to bend the rules today, especially if you’re ready to try something entirely new. Your out-of-the-box behavior could surprise others, but people will stop criticizing you once they see your genius at work. Maintain your integrity and you will win over even your loudest detractors.

Gemini Horoscope MAY 21 – JUN 20

Although your thinking is a bit more cautious now, you still realize you will need to take a risk to get what you want. You might be tempted to run with your first idea when deciding what to do today. However, you can take a simple thought and inflate it into one that is so unrealistic that there is little chance of it manifesting. Thankfully, the potential for success grows throughout the day. Keep refining your best plans and then swing into action, but not until your heart says yes.

Cancer Horoscope JUN 21 – JUL 22

It’s refreshing when your social and domestic commitments don’t stand in the way of your active inner life. Fantasies continue to spin a web of enchantment today, even if you keep snapping your thoughts back to reality. Luckily, you are quite discerning now and can easily separate facts from fancy; nevertheless, you’re still eager to slip off into your daydreams whenever you get the chance. Give yourself permission to come and go between both worlds as needed. But don’t let this propitious moment pass without taking action that moves you closer to your goals.

Leo Horoscope JUL 23 – AUG 22

There’s a palpable uneasiness in the air; your heart is open and ready to reveal its truth but you just don’t know how to put your feelings into words. It might be frustrating at first because you want others to see the real you rather than how you outwardly appear. Instead of spiraling into uncertainty, continue to explore your emotions as they deepen and change. If you are patient with yourself, you might just discover that your behavior is expressing everything you wanted to say. Sometimes actions really do speak louder than words.

Virgo Horoscope AUG 23 – SEP 22

You take great comfort in knowing the facts and sticking to them in all that you do. However, you might be challenged to determine where reality ends and your dreams begin while bombastic Jupiter blows details out of proportion. Fortunately, you can stretch the truth in creative ways today, enabling you to find ingenious solutions to the same problems that stumped you yesterday. Let your faith be bigger than your fear.

Libra Horoscope SEP 23 – OCT 22

There’s no urgency to share all your fantasies today; in fact, one of the most thrilling parts of your private explorations is knowing that you can keep them entirely to yourself. Nevertheless, it certainly could be more fun if you tell your dreams to someone you trust. However, you don’t really know what might happen if you open the door to your inner world. Although you might be judged or even rejected, you also could be embraced for your courage. The risk of saying nothing is the greatest risk of all.

Scorpio Horoscope OCT 23 – NOV 21

You’re ready to fly today, even if you have multiple destinations in mind. In fact, you’re so eager to launch into your future that your lack of wings might not even be enough to stop you. Paradoxically, you’re not interested in making it up as you go. Although optimistic Jupiter encourages impatient Mars to make a move, you can feel the weight of consequences lurking around the corner. You know that irresponsible behavior won’t serve you well. Continue to consider all the options until one stands out so far above the rest that you know it’s yours.

Sagittarius Horoscope NOV 22 – DEC 21

Although all signals appear to be giving you the green light today, you feel the looming conjunction of hot Mars and cold Saturn close on your tail. You want to join a party already in progress or head off on a little adventure of your own, but common sense prevails when it comes to your calendar. Nevertheless, you can still enjoy the evening, with or without others, as long as you maintain control over your schedule. Don’t rush anything now; everything will fall into place when the time is right.

Capricorn Horoscope DEC 22 – JAN 19

The more grandiose the adventure, the more eager you are to embark. You’re typically the realistic one who needs to keep your feet on the ground. However, you’re tired of always coloring within the lines. You like the idea of loosening up and wandering off the beaten path now. Sometimes it feels good to relax and have faith that everything will turn out for the best. Just make sure to keep the end game in mind. If you need to reclaim control for any reason, you can be back in the driver’s seat in a moment’s notice.

Aquarius Horoscope JAN 20 – FEB 18

Surprising others with your eclectic beliefs or your open-minded approach to life never gets old. Thankfully, you have a chance to test the limits today when sharing your feelings with a family member or close friend. You’re particularly aware that rules of etiquette can make it easier to mask complicated emotions. However, your curiosity allows you to play with the edges as you explore the deeper side of relationships. Nevertheless, remember that pushing your boundaries doesn’t mean it’s okay to push anyone else’s.

Pisces Horoscope FEB 19 – MAR 20

You’re intrigued by someone’s invitation today because it sounds like so much fun. The timing might be perfect because you’re looking forward to doing something special now. However, there could be more going on than meets the eye. Be certain that everyone’s agenda is on the table from the beginning since it may be awkward to change your mind once you say yes. Thankfully, your actions have more immediate consequences as the day progresses, so don’t hesitate to speak your truth and act accordingly.
