Your daily horoscope: 27 August 2016

ARIES (March 21 – April 20):

You will want to prove yourself in some way this weekend. But don’t take on too much because you might regret it later when you try to move on to something new but cannot because you still have obligations to fulfill. Don’t get carried away.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):

You will feel good about yourself over the next 48 hours. No matter how many bad things may have happened in recent times only good things will happen now, so put your fears behind you and go out and have fun with people you love.

GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):

Something that used to mean a lot to you but which you have neglected of late will soon become important to you again. It will also become apparent that if you want to make a success of it you must become a true professional. No more half measures.

CANCER (June 22 – July 23):

You may be intense by nature but you will feel relaxed and good about your life this weekend. Make an effort to meet up with friends and go places that excite you. The same old faces are okay but the same old places will be a bore.

LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):

A wonderful Venus-Jupiter link will help you to believe that all things are possible, but don’t fall into the trap of thinking that you must do everything. You would be wise to limit your activities this weekend, and take nothing too seriously.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):

You don’t have to do anything special, you just have to sit back and enjoy all the good things that life brings your way. Can it really be that simple? Yes it can, so forget about your worries and woes and focus on your dreams. They could come true.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):

Make sure you are aware how much you are worth. That applies not only in a financial sense but in a wider sense too, because if you sell yourself short now you will regret it later when you realize how much you could have asked for.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):

Partners, colleagues and even strangers will happily do what you ask of them this weekend. There is a magnetism about you that draws people to you. It makes them feel wanted to make you feel special. Who are you to deny them?

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):

If you show willingness this weekend you will not only get through a mountain of work but you will impress the powers that be. Every effort you make will be rewarded above and beyond what you would normally expect. Enjoy your good fortune.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):

Today’s fantastic link between Venus and Jupiter means you can expect good things to come your way over the next 48 hours. You will also be showered with praise by those who think you are the best thing that ever happened to them. And you are!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):

You know what needs to be done and you won’t hesitate to do it, no matter how many people say you are barking up the wrong tree. Your self-confidence means you don’t need other people’s permission or even their support. Do what you know to be right.

PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):

You will insist on doing what has to be done by yourself and with no interference over the next 48 hours. And quite right too. Your talents and skills are such that others should be taking instructions from you, not the other way round.
