Get a Jump On Tomorrow….
Your Horoscopes for Tuesday, August 18th
by Rick Levine
We want to set aside emotions to weigh a delicate issue strictly on the pros and cons of the arguments. In theory, the objective Libra Moon fends off our desire for a particular outcome but in practice, the controlling Moon-Pluto square sets the stage for a possible power struggle. Ultimately, the conflict is not with anyone else; we are our own worst enemies as we try to find that magic point where we can balance our needs with those of others.
(Mar 21 – Apr 19)
You don’t know whether you should be feeling happy or sad today. You thrive when things are popping, but the stress level may be a bit much even for you hot-to-trot Aries. However, you don’t want to let up on the gas now as you drive for power and success. Although people seem to thwart your efforts, you could inadvertently be the one blocking your own progress. You can be overbearing when you’re certain about your destination, but your intensity might be too much for others to handle. A lighter touch on your part gives everyone the room to choose their own level of participation.
(Apr 20 – May 20)
It may be impossible to settle complex interpersonal dynamics at work today. You might think you’re being objective in your assessment of the current situation, but your compulsive desires could be mixed up with other people’s feelings. Your attempts to sort out everyone’s conflicting needs only make matters more complicated now. Be patient; solving the dilemma will take time as well as persistence. In the meantime, be kind to all parties involved, including yourself.
(May 21 – Jun 20)
Although your agenda might clash with someone else’s today, you’re able to react fast enough to turn a potential conflict into a non-event. Although others might try to rein you in, you could outsmart them with your inclusive attitude. Somehow, you seem to take their resistance in stride without succumbing to their negativity. Much to everyone’s surprise, your skillful diplomacy could raise the bar and deftly transform an enemy into a friend.
(Jun 21 – Jul 22)
Your peers are pressuring you to actively contribute to their projects today, even if you already have your work cut out for you. However, rather than buckling under the demands of the moment, you might ignore the wishes of others now. You’re not willing to retreat from your position, even if someone offers you a graceful exit strategy. Nevertheless, you won’t likely alienate yourself from your associates if you simply take the time to acknowledge the importance of their efforts, too.
(Jul 23 – Aug 22)
Your willingness to see things from a different perspective reveals a new twist in the direction a relationship takes now. Although you might have engaged in a conversation for the sheer enjoyment of the moment, your playful feelings deepen as you’re pushed to explore the dark corners of your own psyche. Don’t brush this special opportunity off as something trivial, for sharing your heart will be more difficult tomorrow if nothing is said today.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Your cool approach to an emotional conversation is unsustainable today. In fact, the more you try to withhold an unpleasant feeling, the stronger it grows and the longer it will persist. Coming right out and saying what you might normally keep to yourself is your most reliable strategy, because communication flows once you get your issues off your chest. Your willingness to engage in an intense dialogue can push a relationship to a new level of intimacy. Nothing is off limits if you approach the subject with humility and kindness.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
You are bewildered by your constantly changing needs and fluctuating desires while several planets stress the evocative Moon in your sign today. It’s nearly impossible to make plans and stick with them because your feelings transform from moment to moment as circumstances shift. Thankfully, you can easily keep your head above water if you strive for the widest possible perspective. Open your mind and not your mouth as you navigate your way through the sea of your emotions.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You may believe you’re heading down a path to an inevitable destination, but your decisive action today can put a positive spin on your future. You might feel closed down as if you are in survival mode, but you could be focusing on the wrong things. Instead of getting caught up in the stress of the moment, think about the actions you can take today that will have a profound impact on tomorrow. Instead of allowing yourself to slip into a place of jealousy or fear, seize this cosmic opportunity to improve your game and run with it.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Your future is beckoning, but you’re also painfully aware of a lingering issue that could stand in your way of success. Just when you think everything is copacetic, an up-welling of powerful emotions demands your undivided attention. Don’t think for a moment that you can stuff them back into the basement of your unconscious mind. Opportunity often arrives shrouded in uncertainty. The amazing potential ahead will only multiply if you have the courage to face the unknown.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Putting your finger on the center of the storm is one of your strategic ways of regaining control of a dynamic situation. Nevertheless, you can feel that something big is heading your direction and you might overreact by trying to fix everyone else’s issues now while making light of your own. Unfortunately, this misguided strategy won’t make your sailing any smoother. Instead, redirect your attention inward; transformation comes from within.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
You can feel the easy breezes of the airy Libra Moon, yet you can’t avoid more serious issues currently on your plate. You may be dreaming about wonderful possibilities that stretch out before you, but it might take more time to get there than you wish. Nevertheless, living in the future doesn’t solve anything today, so gently bring yourself back to reality. The sooner you face the music, the sooner you can dance your dreams into existence.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
You might not be in the mood to share your toys with others today, leading to a struggle over the control of important resources. On a very basic level, a disagreement over a joint checking account can instigate an unpleasant encounter. However, the conflict may be more complex as you renegotiate a business partnership or debate about the ownership of an idea. Nevertheless, it is not in your best interest to become greedy or possessive. Fair play is the best insurance for everyone to come out a winner.
