Your Daily Horoscope: 18 August 2016
ARIES (March 21 – April 20):
Try not to complain if what you get today is not what you wanted because it will make important people think you are ungrateful. Thank them for what they have done for you and, if possible, give something in return. It’s good public relations.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):
If someone is rude for no good reason today then by all means be rude in return. However, the full moon warns the situation could easily escalate and get out of control, so only answer like with like if you really think it is necessary.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):
You have a way with words but the planets warn you could go too far today and say things that turn everyone against you. Think before you speak and only speak if what you have to say is positive. Any fool can rant and rave.
CANCER (June 22 – July 23):
Be wary of people who offer you the kind of deal you find hard to believe, because almost certainly you are being set up. If you let your need for quick cash tempt you to take risks you will have no one but yourself to blame for the consequences.
LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):
Yes, you have the right to say whatever you please but that does not mean there won’t be consequences. Today’s full moon in your opposite sign could make you a little too outspoken for your own good. Think before you speak Leo.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):
Believe what you want to believe today and don’t worry in the slightest if important people do not agree with you. You have every right to have your own opinion, and every right to express it, loudly if you think it necessary.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):
Certain people just rub you the wrong way, and with a full moon to contend with today you would be wise to stay out of their way. Do not, repeat not, argue with them about what is right and what is wrong. It will end in tears.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):
Someone will say things about you today that are neither fair nor true. You cannot stop their lies but you can control the way you react to them. Pretend that you really don’t care. That will hurt them more than if you react.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):
You have never been the most patient of people and if anyone thinks or moves too slowly for your liking today they will be left in no doubt that you are not impressed. Try to be a bit more tolerant – your anger won’t change them.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):
In your desperation to dig your way out of a financial hole you may end up digging it deeper, so think before you act – better still, don’t act at all. Today’s full moon makes your cash flow situation look worse than it is, so don’t worry so much.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):
A full moon in your sign will make you more emotional than usual, though seeing as you are such an expert at controlling your feelings not everyone will notice the difference. Take what happens over the next 24 hours in your stride.
PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):
You are taking certain situations and certain individuals far too seriously. You need to remind yourself that in the greater scheme of things nothing is worth getting worked up about and nothing is ever as bad as it seems. Believe it – it’s true.
