Your daily Horoscope: 10 August 2016

ARIES (March 21 – April 20):

You have every right to speak your mind no matter how taboo the topic of discussion may be. Those who try to stop you clearly have something to hide, something they don’t want the world to know about. Find out what it is.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):

You seem to believe, on no real evidence at all, that something bad is going to happen. Most likely you have been reading too many headlines and the constant negativity has rubbed off on you. It is still a pretty good world.

GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):

Don’t make too many demands on yourself, nor on other people, over the next 24 hours because you should now be slowing down – and calming down. The coming weekend will be rather exciting, so take it easy while you can.

CANCER (June 22 – July 23):

There is a lot of tension in the air at the moment, as if something major is about to happen. Maybe it will and maybe it won’t but fretting about it won’t make any difference. You cannot control events, you can only control yourself.

LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):

You may be self-confident by nature but not everyone shares your ability to rise about setbacks and turn them into triumphs. Make it your mission today to cheer up friends and family members who are feeling depressed – you’re good at that too.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):

If something goes wrong today, and almost certainly it will, there is no need to panic and there is no need to change what you are doing. The planets indicate that by this time tomorrow everything will be right with your world again.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):

Although what you are expected to do today may not be to your liking once you get to work on it you may be surprised to discover that you quite enjoy the challenge. With the right mental attitude even chores can be fun.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):

You are lusting after something (or someone) you cannot have and it is eating you up inside. Make an effort to see why the universe is denying you. Most likely if your wish was to be granted you would very soon regret it.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):

Today’s Mercury-Pluto link means your thoughts are more powerful than you realize. Now that you know that make sure that only pleasant and positive ideas are granted room in your brain. Nasty and negative ideas must be banished for good.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):

You seem to have a bit of a defeatist attitude at the moment but later in the month you will see why you were wrong to think the world was against you. For now though you must just take it on faith. Worry is a useless emotion.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):

You need to make a mental effort to stand outside yourself and see how other people perceive you. The Sun in your opposite sign of Leo makes it relatively easy to view yourself through the eyes of those you live with and work alongside.

PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):

Raise your sights over the next 24 hours and see all the major things that are going on in the world around you – things in which you could be and should be playing a part. The world needs people with your generosity of spirit.
