Your daily horoscope: 08 September 2016

ARIES (March 21 – April 20):

There are some powerful feelings at work at the moment and jealousy is likely to rear its ugly head as some stage today. You may not be directly involved but watch out you don’t get caught in the middle – because then you will get it from both sides.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):

You are going through a fortunate phase at the moment but you must not let others tell you that you have been lucky or that you are unworthy of success. In the greater scheme of things there is no such thing as chance. We get what we deserve.

GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):

Both family and work matters are under favorable stars at the moment and whatever you focus on over the next 24 hours will turn out well. Just make sure your aims really are your aims and not the aims of loved ones and colleagues.

CANCER (June 22 – July 23):

It may seem as if someone is being deliberately obstructive, and maybe they are, but it does not mean they don’t have your interests at heart. If they try to guide you in a direction you don’t want to go, go anyway. It may take you somewhere good.

LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):

Make sure you deal only in facts today because if you say something that your rivals can prove is wrong it will make you look bad and may harm your reputation. You don’t need to exaggerate to make yourself look big – you are big enough already.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):

You will need to spell out in simple language what it is you expect of other people today, because if you leave room for doubt they will pretend they are confused and not give you the assistance you desire. Plain speaking is a must.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):

Libra may be a cardinal sign but just lately you have felt anything but dynamic. That has a lot to do with the Sun in the most sensitive area of your chart but with Jupiter moving into your own sign tomorrow your self-belief will soon be soaring.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):

Be careful what you say over the next 24 hours because if you go too far in your criticism of other people you could find they hit back at you just as hard. You are, of course, entitled to your opinions – but then so are they.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):

There will be kind words from people in positions of authority today. Even if you are the sort of Sag who doesn’t much care what others think of you it will be nice to get the kind of compliments that show your efforts are valued.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):

If you need to ask a favor of a friend or family member now is the time to speak up. You don’t have to beg or make promises you may not be able to keep, you just have to let them know what you need – and you will get it.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):

With Jupiter about to move into one of the more positive areas of your chart you should be feeling quietly confident that your luck is about to change for the better. The change could be dramatic if you resolve to be more adventurous.

PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):

Something that has been worrying you for months will resolve itself to your complete satisfaction over the next few days and most likely you will kick yourself mentally for having allowed your fears to get out of hand. Don’t be too hard on yourself.
