Your Daily Horoscope: 20 August 2016

ARIES (March 21 – April 20):

Be yourself this weekend. Go your own way and do your own thing and don’t worry in the slightest that people may not approve. Make the most of the Sun’s final two days in the most dynamic area of your chart to stir things up a little.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):

A friend will hand you some shocking news this weekend but you really should have seen it coming. No matter how upset you might be with the situation do not get personally involved. You have no dog in this fight, so stay clear.

GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):

A friend or relative is feeling a bit neglected at the moment and you must make it your business to cheer them up. Let them know that they are loved and valued and that you will always be there for them. And mean it too, of course!

CANCER (June 22 – July 23):

It would appear that you have overlooked a small but important detail and the consequences of that oversight will become apparent over the next 48 hours. Yes, of course, you will have to pay the price but you can easily afford it.

LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):

For too long you have kept certain aims and ambitions to yourself and now you must let everyone know what it is you are planning to do. You will be surprised how much support and encouragement they give you. And you thought they would be angry!

VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):

The doubts and fears of the past few weeks will fade this weekend and by the time the Sun moves into your sign on Monday you will be eager to start something new. You don’t have to make any grand plans, just get on and do it.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):

Put principle before profit this weekend and don’t worry if you end up out of pocket – you will more than make up for it later on. You can see clearer and further than most other people now, so trust what your inner voice tells you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):

You will have to make a difficult choice over the next 48 hours and you must not put it off to a later date. The Sun’s imminent change of signs means if you don’t act now you may miss out on a reward that is yours by right.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):

Forget about the bad things that have happened recently and focus on the good things that are going to take place in your life in the months to come. This is not a time for hesitation, this is a time for action, especially where your career is concerned.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):

Speak up if you need help this weekend. You may be surprised how easily the words come to your lips. You certainly won’t be your usual tongue-tied self. Let others know what you need from them and they will happily give it to you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):

If you need to make a new start on something, either at home or at work, get busy making it happen this weekend. Once the Sun changes signs on Monday you may find you no longer have the time to spare to get serious about it.

PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):

You know that you have what it takes to succeed, so what are you waiting for? As from today you will find it easier to persuade people in positions of power to look on you favourably. Just remember they respect actions more than words.
