Get A Jump On Tomorrow….
Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, August 23rd
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.
