Your daily horoscope: 29 August 2016

ARIES (March 21 – April 20):

At some stage over the next few days you will come to the conclusion that life is too short to waste time on fights and feuds. Contact those you have not been on good terms with and let them know you want to be friends again – and mean it.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):

You will be on the move a lot over the coming week – you can’t seem to stay in one place for any length of time. Someone you meet on your travels will open your mind to new possibilities, and in doing so transform your existence.

GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):

Even if you are one of those rare Geminis who carefully watches what you spend, you will most likely go on a spree this week. Try to buy only those items that come with a no-questions-asked, 30-day-money-back guarantee, because you will need it.

CANCER (June 22 – July 23):

What occurs today will cheer you up and remind you that life is not so bad, and could be so much better if you made an effort to focus only on the good things. But not too much of an effort – hard work is best avoided this week.

LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):

If you go out of your way to help someone today other people will go out of their way to help you later on when you are most in need of it. No matter what some of your rivals may say you are a nice guy at heart.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):

Put your friends first today and don’t hesitate to make a personal sacrifice if required to do so. There will be some interesting developments in your social life over the next few days, so don’t limit your horizons to places you already know well.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):

It’s not what you know but who you know that matters and what happens over the next 24 hours will hammer that point home dramatically. Important people are watching you closely and if they like what they see will reward you handsomely.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):

If you feel like taking off into the wide blue yonder then just go. Don’t worry that others might think you are being irresponsible because the fact is you deserve a break. Share your travels with someone you love if you can.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):

You will find yourself attracted to someone whose personality is the opposite of your own today. It could be the start of a beautiful friendship but don’t expect it to develop into something more than that or you could both be disappointed.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):

All one-to-one relationships will go well today but those where your heart is involved will bring more joy than you thought possible. If you are looking for love you will find it, and if you are in love already your affections will grow stronger.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):

The harder you have been pushing yourself in recent weeks the more you must slow down now. You don’t have to do anything special over the next few days because fate will bring you the right opportunities at the right time. Why work up a sweat?

PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):

Cosmic activity in your opposite sign means you will be more expressive romantically over the coming week. There could even be a new relationship around the time of the solar eclipse on Thursday, so be open to people who approach you out of the blue.
