Your daily horoscope: 31 August 2016

ARIES (March 21 – April 20):

The time has come to assess your priorities and decide what is worth putting your time and energy into and what must be cut out of your life. There are only 24 hours in a day and they must only be used for what truly matters.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):

There is no time limit to what you can accomplish but your efforts are more likely to bring success if you focus on what is important and don’t waste your talents on activities that don’t pay the bills. To get things done you need to specialize.

GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):

It may seem as if certain people do nothing but complain but some of what they say is worth listening to, so be patient and open your ears. Try to put yourself in their position – the view may be very different from what you had expected.

CANCER (June 22 – July 23):

What you do with your life now is limited only by the boundaries you impose on yourself. Once you understand that you will find it much easier to direct your reality in the direction you want it to go. Imagination plus application equals success.

LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):

Tomorrow’s solar eclipse in the financial area of your chart makes this the ideal time to look at what you own and what you earn. Don’t stick to tried and tested ways of making money, try something different, something that takes the world by surprise.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):

This is one of the best times of the year for getting things done, both in your personal life and on the work front, so don’t let doubts and fears hold you back. Positive thoughts will bring positive results – that’s a cosmic guarantee.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):

You have a tendency to disguise your emotions, to pretend that you don’t get worked up about things, but cosmic activity in the most sensitive area of your chart means that won’t be so easy today. Relax. There is nothing wrong with showing your feelings.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):

Don’t waste time fantasizing about ways to turn back the clock because it simply cannot be done. There is no point letting memories of yesteryear rob you of the joys of today, especially when your future is so much brighter than you realize.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):

If you have something to say, no matter how controversial it might be, you will say it out loud and you won’t care in the slightest if others get annoyed. But don’t go looking to antagonize people in positions of power purely for the fun of it!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):

If you feel like packing your bags and heading off into the bright blue yonder over the next few days then do so without a second thought or a backward glance. The moment you start questioning your actions is the moment the magic will begin to fade.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):

What happens over the next 48 hours may shock you to the core but you should have seen it coming. What you are required to do may seem like a backward step but later in the year you will realize it was for your own benefit.

PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):

According to the planets you are taking too narrow a viewpoint of certain situations and certain individuals. Even a slight change of perspective on your part today will lead to a new, improved and more enjoyable way of looking at the world.
