Your daily Horoscope: 08 August 2016

ARIES (March 21 – April 20):

The more you rush here, there and everywhere this week the less you will get done. You have made too many plans and taken on too many commitments. Like it or not you will have to let some people down over the next few days.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):

Why are you worrying yourself sick about the state of your finances? What you seem to have forgotten, Taurus, is that in the greater scheme of things material wealth means nothing at all. Stop worrying and start living your life free from fear.

GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):

You will get upset over something trivial today and will no doubt go over the top emotionally. Don’t be too hard on yourself for it when you finally cool down because you are only human, and on this occasion you were right to get mad.

CANCER (June 22 – July 23):

What happens next may not be entirely to your liking but if you stay calm you can find ways to make it work in your favor. Happiness comes from facing up to difficult circumstances and overcoming them. You are destined to find happiness this week.

LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):

There are times when you have to accept there is no point pushing too hard, and if you are smart you will realize that this is one of them. Put your plans on hold, find something enjoyable to do and wait for the world to turn again.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):

Something will happen that makes you wish you had been less impulsive. Whatever it is though you must not use it as an excuse to do something that is equally impetuous. Virgos are supposed to be cautious, and today that will work in your favor.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):

What occurs over the next two or three days will make you wonder if you have been a bit too hasty about a career-related matter. Maybe your friends are right, maybe you need to take another look at the facts. Maybe you got it wrong this time.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):

Resist the temptation to start something new, especially if there is money involved. Anything you begin on impulse now could turn out to be a financial burden later on. Don’t listen to those who say you must act quickly – think for yourself.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):

You will never convince those who do not want to be convinced, so don’t waste your time trying. If needs be just go it alone and show those who doubted your ideas and your ambition how wrong they were. Yes, you are allowed to gloat.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):

You are doing too many things for too many people and if you carry on this way you will burn yourself out very soon. Tell those who have been taking your assistance for granted that as from today they are on their own. And mean it.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):

Don’t bother explaining your motives to other people this week because they won’t understand. Do what you want to do and forget about trying to court approval. They will finally “get it” when they see how much you have achieved without them.

PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):

You need to make a once and for all decision about the direction your life is heading. That means deciding what is of most importance to you: your family or your career. Deep down you know the answer already – you just need to admit it to yourself.
