Your Daily Horoscope: 23 August 2016

ARIES (March 21 – April 20):

Your big ideas won’t come to much unless you plan well ahead. Like most Aries you no doubt prefer to leave the boring details to other people but the planets warn if you do that now there could be trouble. Take a little time to get it right.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):

As the Sun is now moving through the most dynamic area of your chart your confidence will rise and you will start to believe in yourself again. Creatively and emotionally this is your best time of year, so be bold – and be romantic too.

GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):

After all the coming and going of recent weeks you could probably do with a bit of rest but it’s unlikely you will get it. The Sun in one of the more sensitive areas of your chart means loved ones will need your assistance – a lot!

CANCER (June 22 – July 23):

The planets will make it easy for you to get out and about in the world and meet new people. Even if you are the kind of Cancer who prefers your own company you would be wise to make an effort to be sociable. Smiles cost nothing.

LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):

You have made a lot of sacrifices of late and will be asked to make another one over the next few days. However, before you do you must ask yourself what you will get out of helping other people. It’s not selfish, it’s just common sense.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):

You will need to be in top form today, physically, mentally and emotionally. The Sun in your sign means the pace of life will increase dramatically, but you should have no trouble keeping up. Opportunities will open up for you in every direction.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):

There are times when even a Libra needs be alone with their thoughts and this is one of them. Find a way to switch off from the noise and confusion of the outside world and give yourself some much-needed mental and emotional breathing space.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):

If there is anything you feel strongly about, be it personal, political or social in nature, now is the time to do something about it. Get involved. Get together with like-minded people. You can change the world – if you are on the right team.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):

The Sun in Virgo at this time of year makes you intensely ambitious, as does the presence of Mars in your sign, so don’t let anyone tell you that certain things cannot be done. For you, all things are possible, today and every day.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):

You can sense that something good is going to happen in your life, something that will not only make you happy but inspire you to help others be happy too. Your positive attitude will attract good fortune and good people wherever you go.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):

Why are you so suspicious of those you work and do business with? Why do you find it so hard to trust them? There is a danger that you will start reading all kinds of bad intent into what they are doing. Try not to be so distrustful.

PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):

The Sun in your opposite sign puts the emphasis on partnerships and if you are wise you will make a serious effort to get along with the people around you. Find areas where your interests and their interests coincide. You can only do so much alone.
