Horoscope for today - Free Daily Horoscope - August 18 2017
● General: You've always felt that it is better to keep your mouth closed and appear a fool than to open it and remove all doubt. At the moment, however, you have a lot on your mind -- and in your heart -- and you really want to let it all out. So stop worrying about seeming a fool. First off, you won't. The only thing you'll seem like is a fool in love -- and there's nothing better.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Look into insurance and other safeguards for your business. Your sense of risk and return is sharper than usual, and you might need a new strategy, especially if you sense the system has weaknesses or flaws.
● Finances: Your financial situation is a worry, but the world's finances are the real problem. What you should do won't be clear until the global financial climate is, so don't do anything new.
● Love: Not only are there fifty ways to leave your lover, there are fifty ways to find a new one too. The stars give you a fresh burst of energy to get your romantic life zooming along. Now it's up to you to take the initiative.
● General: Your ability to focus is the stuff of legends, and that goes double when you're on a mission -- like right now, for example. What might that mission be? To outshine your coworkers so that you'll be able to get that raise you've been bucking for. There's no need to lose any sleep over it. Keep up like you have been and you'll win what you want, hands down. Just don't let any secrets slide.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Any project beginning now will go smoothly. If you can plan or set up logistics for something new, that's just as good. Start the buzz early -- after all, you can change anything once it's in motion.
● Finances: You're losing money every day, and you can't seem to plug the leak the usual way. It's a good time to implement way out things, if only because you don't have much left to lose.
● Love: Not everyone gets your sense of humor, but you know it's there. Don't change just to appeal to the lowest common denominator. When the right person comes along, they'll understand what you're trying to get across.
● General: It's officially time to reconnect with your favorite playmates. They've been missing you, you've been missing them and the few phone calls you've had time to make just aren't cutting it. Make time for them tonight. You're guaranteed to have some serious fun -- and isn't that what life is all about? Oh, but do make sure your chores are done, if only so you can have a guilt-free evening.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: It really is all fun and games for you at the moment. Most of your business should be easy going, and clients should be falling all over themselves with joy. Don't be surprised if you close a huge deal right now.
● Finances: You're starting to feel thwarted, at least in the financial arena. But don't let frustration get the better of you. It will affect how others see you, which will ultimately affect your bottom line of the future.
● Love: You might find enlightenment in the most unlikely places, like this sense of discomfort you're having now. The status quo might be chafing you. You're actually more prepared for a new life (and love) than you think.
● General: Just when you thought you might actually be able to see things clearly for a while, it turns out it is not quite time. And you'll come to that realization via a startling message that arrives this afternoon. Now, this doesn't mean you should be expecting bad news or that you'll be disappointed with what happens. Not at all. You might, however, want to write your plans in pencil. For now, at least.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Work on strengthening the ties you have and creating new ones where they're needed. Your working relationships are the most important components of your business arsenal right now.
● Finances: If you've never worried about money before, consider this a trip into the unknown. Do some exploring. At its least you'll learn to tighten your belt, and at best you'll feel in tune with a whole new chunk of the population.
● Love: When you get right down to it, all this fiery debate is masking a certain level of attraction to this person. You can enjoy this flirtation for what it is, or you can decide to take it to its next level. It's your move.
● General: It's not that your mouth will be totally out of control -- well, not today, anyway. Tomorrow, however, is another story. Today, you'll have a preview of coming attractions, but you'll still manage to stay in possession of most of your verbal faculties. That is if you want to possess them. But when you're sufficiently angry or passionately involved, like you may be tomorrow? Well, that's different.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: You have a unique perspective on your career and a great opportunity to free up more personal time if you want it. Just make sure you discuss your plans with management and family first.
● Finances: You're suddenly out of your element. Everyone is, even those in the know. So don't have any financial dealings until you do enough research to get your instinct back in tune with the new reality.
● Love: When it comes to love, make it up as you go along. Following a strict plan could close off options rather than help you get to the point. After all, shouldn't you enjoy the journey as well as the destination?
● General: Shopping? Did somebody say shopping? You're all over that suggestion. In fact, you've probably already tried to coerce at least one pal into dashing off to the mall for the day. You woke up this morning in the mood to grab your checkbook, raid your piggy bank, and cancel your appointments. Sound serious? It sure is. And if all else fails, you may find yourself sitting at the computer tonight with your plastic close by.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: You're stuck in a demented puzzle, but it won't last long. You'll stumble on the solution while thinking about something totally different -- maybe while daydreaming -- and it'll jolt you back to reality!
● Finances: Being in constant flux would be better than always pointing down. But whether things are stable or not, use your great organization skills to be one step ahead of everyone around you.
● Love: Feeling the need to get a new enterprise off the ground? Good! The stars tell you to take a risk when it comes to love. The greater the chance, the greater the rewards. This may just be a turning point for you.
● General: Buck authority? If it's called for, you're ready to put up your dukes and fight it out. This one issue you've been dealing with lately has really gotten under your skin, and you're willing to do what it takes to make your point. Well, good for you -- because you're right. And you know it, too, don't you? Well, then, don't give up and don't give in. Keep at it. You're almost there.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Take your time with all your tasks, no matter how close you're running to deadline. You have more wiggle room than you thought was possible. It's better to get it right!
● Finances: Why wait for retirement? Appreciating the smaller things in life shouldn't feel like a punishment. Life is giving you an opportunity to learn something new. Consider yourself lucky.
● Love: Find ways to balance the books on some lingering patterns that have been with you for far too long, especially in the realm of personal relationships. Get some closure. Once that energy is released, new things will come to fill that void.
● General: You're just about due for something totally out of the ordinary. You've turned down all kinds of fabulous temptations lately, in just about every category. But just as you start to wonder why, the universe will deliver you a one-of-a-kind reward designed especially for you. Don't question it and don't worry about why it's there. You'll definitely want someone fun on board for this.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: It might feel as if the whole world is out to get you, but actually, everyone is just moving at their own pace -- and you're in the way. Duck down or fight back, but don't go with the flow.
● Finances: Just how to make a profit is becoming more and more of a mystery. You'll have to pull out your hidden talents, even the ones hidden to you. Start using some creativity.
● Love: Thoughtful action has twice the effect, especially when it comes to your romances. Think about what you do before you do it, and you'll see great results. What you leave out is just as important as what you include.
● General: No, you're not sick, but you can pull off a convincing act -- on the phone, at least -- if you receive an offer that's more attractive than putting in your time at work. Just consider whether it's worth it first, and be sure it won't hurt your job standing. Otherwise, have a great time. And work on that cough. Remember, you still have some work to finish.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: It's totally up to you to spread the word. If you usually work alone, you'll have to make sure your clients or customers are clued in; if you're part of a company, clear up communication channels.
● Finances: You can't take it with you, the important things in life are free -- those are more than just silly metaphors. We're all forced to think about them sooner or later, and in your case, it's sooner.
● Love: If excitement, challenges, and romantic mix-ups are presenting themselves, thank your lucky stars and make the most of these opportunities. It's all a training ground to help you cope when your ship really does come in.
● General: If it's on your mind and in your heart, it's also going to be written all over your face for the next several days -- which means this coming weekend will be quite a blowout. Make your plans now, but allow for a bit of wiggle room. Things could change. You won't mind at all, though, and heaven knows your companion won't be mad either. Surprised, maybe -- no, definitely -- and delighted, too. But not mad.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: You may want to scuttle your plans when a big idea hits you from out of the blue. Don't take too long thinking about it or the opportunity will be long gone. Now is the time for action!
● Finances: Even numbers are more an art than a science. Use the little creativity you're allowed to make big changes. Given what you have to work with, that may be the only way to impress others.
● Love: Be assertive! You have only your self-respect to gain by speaking up for what you want from a romance. And any losses you might incur, well, the universe promises that they will ultimately be your gain.
● General: While your pals might not be able to fix your problems, they can at least figure out a way to put a smile on your face. So when the going gets rough today, just reach out to your friends -- that's what they are there for! You've been a bit melancholy lately, but that isn't necessarily anything to worry about. Everyone experiences the doldrums -- that's part of life. You need to feel whatever you're feeling and work your way through those painful emotions. You'll come out on the other end shortly. Phew!
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: There isn't enough bad news in the world to bring you down, so now's the time to slog through the tasks you've been putting off for so long. Don't worry -- the sooner you get started, the sooner it's over with.
● Finances: You need to change your habits with the times. Adjust now, before it's too late. Once your credit card is to the limit, learning how to cut corners will be beside the point, for you and your creditors.
● Love: Tolerance has always been your strong suit, and right now it's definitely the name of the game. The more you're able to accept the people around you, the more romantic opportunities will show up in your life.
● General: Still in the mood for love? Well, it's no wonder. You may, however, also need to tend to a little thing called earning a living. Don't let it slide; you never know when you'll want the security. Besides, if you're really in love, won't you want to have a couple of nickels to rub together to impress your dear one? Especially since you've been thinking about how to spoil them for days now.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Watch out for cranky coworkers, especially if one of them is the boss. There might be too much pressure to get stuff done or just weird territory issues -- if that's the case, stick to yourself today.
● Finances: Don't worry, you can be ever stylish. In fact, you have what it takes to stay one step ahead, even without money. Reinvent yourself before reality does it for you.
● Love: Are you being asked to pour a ton of energy into a relationship that you didn't ask for? You're so naturally inclined to help other people that you might say 'yes' before you think about it. Pause before you answer.
