Your daily Horoscope: 17 August 2016

ARIES (March 21 – April 20):

If you receive some kind of offer today you must find out exactly what it entails and what will be expected of you in return. Most likely the cost will be worth it but you don’t want any nasty surprises a bit further down the line.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):

You may find it hard to be nice to someone you have clashed with several times in the past but don’t go too far and refuse to have anything to do with them. Personal feelings must not be allowed to affect your working relationships.

GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):

Travel and social plans are much on your mind at the moment but don’t expect them all to work out as you expected or you may be disappointed. This is a time of rapid change in your life, so stay flexible in all situations.

CANCER (June 22 – July 23):

Be careful what you say because if you say the wrong thing to the wrong person it could negatively impact your cash flow situation. In fact it might be best if you steer clear of money matters altogether over the next two or three days.

LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):

You won’t hesitate to give your opinion today but the approaching full moon warns you could be stirring up a hornet’s nest. You may think you know the facts but there is something you have missed, something your rivals can use against you.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):

You will have to deal with someone today whose words and actions you do not approve of. Do what you have to do in a professional manner then go your separate ways. There is no law that says you have to be friends.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):

The more the doubters tell you something cannot be done the more determined you will be to prove them wrong. Just make sure you know what you are doing and don’t be provoked into taking action that could easily end in tears.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):

You know what it is you desire and you know where and how you can get it. What you don’t know, yet, is that someone in a position of authority is determined to stop you from getting it. Should be an interesting few days.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):

It would be tempting to write off someone’s criticism as sour grapes but there may be a very good reason why they think what you are doing is wrong. Make it your business to find out what it is – it could save you a lot of trouble.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):

Anyone who thinks they can take from you without giving anything of value in return will find out how wrong they are today. You may be cautious by nature but you can be a truly fearsome opponent when your anger is roused.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):

If you get the impression that a colleague or a friend is not being honest with you then by all means confront them with your suspicions. It may well be that they have been keeping information from you and you MUST find out what it is.

PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):

If you need assistance today don’t be afraid to approach people who can give it to you. Even the most talented Pisces needs a helping hand once in a while and teamwork is essential if you are to make meaningful progress.
