Horoscope for today - Free Daily Horoscope - August 22 2017
● General: Right around dinner time, the urge to connect with someone on a very deep level will cross your mind -- and your heart. You already have someone in mind, but the universe may have other plans for you. Stay open to new possibilities and don't turn down any offers to be introduced to someone new. You never know. This time might just be different.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Fluff? You don't have the time for it! Don't let that person drone on and on about nothing in particular -- even if it's your BFF. You have to cut to the chase if you want to make your weekend the most it can be.
● Finances: Imagine how hard it was to move your couch into your house, and how easy it was to decide to get a new one. Tighter times mean you won't be making those kinds of decisions as lightly. Enjoy the energy that frees up.
● Love: New friends bring a certain sparkle to your eye -- not to mention your love life. Be daring with your social networking if you want to turn these friendships into love connections. A surprising proposal may result.
● General: You've done nothing but work, worry and take care of business for days. So why not give yourself a night off? You've certainly had an array of offers, and some of them were quite appealing. Stop trying to resist and pick the one that most strikes your fancy. You know what they say about all work and no play? That applies to all worry and no play, too. Time to chill out.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Managing money will be a priority for you, especially if it belongs to someone who trusts you. It might be as simple as tweaking a budget item or as complicated as making an investment on someone else's behalf.
● Finances: Relax, you'll never lose your appeal, even if you lose the profits. Just that thought alone is worth all the tea in China, but you won't be able to cash it in for much more than romance.
● Love: Love reveals itself when you least expect it, but you have to stop searching for it so assiduously first. Instead, think about what it is that you enjoy doing, the people you like and what you want to achieve.
● General: It doesn't take much to talk you into a change of scenery. So if someone suggests a trip to you, you'll have your planner out and your boss on the phone in record time. Oh, and if there's a certain someone out there you'd like to spend some time alone with -- the kind of time that doesn't involve a workplace, a movie theater or a television set -- this would also be the perfect time to plan it.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Don't be surprised if personal interactions leave much to be desired -- and it's not necessarily you. Other people are acting weird, and you'll just have to be patient until they straighten out.
● Finances: You have what it takes to ride out the current financial situation, even if you don't know it yet. Hidden obstacles require hidden strengths. The problem is not knocking your shins into them before you pull out the big guns.
● Love: You have a certain cool, laid back charm right now. Your intellect shines, and you have a gift for creating positivity where none existed before. A certain level of confusion regarding your love life lifts at this time.
● General: Still thinking about traveling? Well, the moment has come to stop thinking and start planning. If you have vacation time coming, there's no better time to take it, especially since things have loosened up a bit at work. If you have a favorite person you'd like to drag along for the ride, by all means, get him or her in on the action sooner rather than later.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Don't conceal a thing right now. Your best bet is to go beyond honesty into full disclosure. Your candor might surprise someone, but it will work out for the best as far as everyone is concerned.
● Finances: People still need a little socializing, even if they can't afford it. If you always wanted to throw a dinner party, the time has never been better. You can do it on the cheap if you stick to a theme, the crazier the idea, the better.
● Love: You're ready to let it all hang out, but is the person you're with the right one to receive this message? There's no need to act in haste. That eternal flame in your heart should be saved for the right person.
● General: You're very close to your colleagues and neighbors. These people, and your friends, often feel like extended family to you. So when someone calls you and sounds rather plaintive, don't hesitate to use all your intellectual wiles to get the story out of them. They obviously need to talk, or they wouldn't have contacted you. But some people have trouble accepting help, even when they need it. It's your job to convince them it's all right.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Deadline completed? Check! Laundry folded? Check! Coffee brewed? Check! You're in a good position to do whatever you want to do today, regardless of what anyone else has on their agenda. Hang loose, baby!
● Finances: Wouldn't it be fun to watch all the showoffs go down in flames? Life isn't that cut and dry, though. Even imagining it sets you up for your downfall, so hope the world's bank accounts are healthy instead.
● Love: A love interest really wants to talk, but you honestly don't have room in your schedule. Let them know, and then book time for a future date to hear them out. It's kinder than ducking their phone calls and emails.
● General: You want to socialize, but you probably don't have the energy to get dressed and go out. Find a happy medium. Order up a pizza, see if there are any games on and have an impromptu party. It's the perfect evening to have some friends over to your place. And when have you ever had to talk anyone into coming over? There's no doubt that house is considered the gang's clubhouse.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: A personal agreement you were sure was a rock-solid contract will turn out to be wiggly. It's not quite time to renegotiate, but you should double-check the terms, just to make sure you didn't misunderstand something.
● Finances: You are in good company, in more ways than one. Plenty of people are taking this opportunity to do some soul searching. You can be less deep than that if you want to, but the least you should do is some research.
● Love: Life is far from ordinary now. The stars stir it up by bringing unpredictable influences into your routine. The most surprising things come out of your mouth and attract the attention of an even more surprising someone.
● General: After days of intrigue, secrecy, and craving nothing more than total privacy, you've suddenly got a serious case of boredom -- and you know just what to do about it. Find your friends and spend some time with them. It's true what they say about laughter -- it's the best medicine for whatever ails you. You could invite them all over to your place, but aren't you tired of staying in? Why not take your party out on the town.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: You'll feel the urge to bust out of your ordinary weekend routine and make big changes. You might need to rein it in a little, but don't suppress the notion completely.
● Finances: The bank account and your waistline are doing an awkward duet again. The more one shrinks, the more the other one grows. You know which is which, so get a grip on it.
● Love: Commit yourself to observing the rise and fall of your emotions, and the boundaries you need to establish in a budding relationship will become much clearer. Next, mean what you say -- and say it.
● General: Everyone's all about socializing now. What a coincidence! You just so happen to be in the mood to socialize too! The good news is you'll blend right in, thanks to your current frame of mind and heart. You'll probably also make some new friends. It's tough to resist someone with a great personality, especially when they flaunt it with such panache!
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Try as you may, you'll struggle against the clock. Even if you think you're moving forward, events will conspire to keep you in place. Things will change as the weekend ends. Get ready for a productive Monday!
● Finances: Tight times are making tempers flare. Be extra careful around people who are naturally greedy, even in good times. The last thing you want to drag with you into the new financial era is a feud.
● Love: Your network of friends is wide and far-reaching. Don't you think it's time you tapped into this resource if you're looking for love? Share what you want and need with them. They would love to help make your life better.
● General: If you're attached, you might want to pay some very special attention to your significant other for the next couple of days. In particular, be sure to pay more attention to your sweetie than you do to anyone they're less than confident around. Yes indeed, it could be time for a bit of jealousy to rear its ugly little head, even if you're not responsible for it. Does this mean you can avoid the green-eyed monster entirely? Probably not -- but you can definitely stop it in its tracks.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Brainstorming couldn't go better for you today. Let your mind roam free and see where it goes -- a great idea is out there and it's waiting to be found. All you need is some quiet space to make it happen!
● Finances: You have a good idea of the big picture, and of your place in it. It's a good time to assess both. No matter what gestalt you come up with, do know that you can deal with this.
● Love: 'Expect the unexpected' is your current mantra when it comes to love, and it's a very wise one at that. Some conflicting celestial energies cause a hoo-ha that needs your wise and discerning eye. Positive changes result.
● General: Just when you thought you'd like nothing better than to gather your friends together and hit the town, you've suddenly decided it might be even more fun to lure them all over to your place for the evening. And they'd be crazy to argue. Whether the gang's all out patrolling the town or just sharing a pizza at home, it's always great fun -- as long as you're hosting the party.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Electronic communication will play a larger role than usual in today's activities. You've made a long-distance connection that will become more valuable, even romantic, over time. It's a great day to catch up!
● Finances: Everyone is being economical, and that brings on one of life's best Catch-22's: the deep discount. Just keep holding out on spending your hard earned money because prices are only going to keep heading south.
● Love: You have a wonderful opportunity to revamp your image from the outer details (Acid-washed denim? No, thanks!) to the inner (enough with the negativity). A new outlook on life leads you to a new chance at love.
● General: Exactly how long have you been trying to help a dear one curtail their bad habits? Can you remember? Keep in mind you've been working so diligently on that project that it's also been a while since you've allowed yourself to have any fun. You've been trying as hard -- and, in some cases, harder -- than they have. Your job now, should you choose to accept it -- and you'd better, for your own sake -- is to cut them loose. And don't worry. They'll manage just fine.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Socializing will get you farther than burning the midnight oil. Reach out to new contacts, preferably in an informal setting, and you'll be rewarded with a fresh batch of business cards for the taking.
● Finances: The dust bowl produced more than stories from the past. It made lessons to learn from, even for today's climate. The old relatives who told them may be long gone, so take a trip to the library.
● Love: Hold tight! Your love life may feel like it's on fast-forward and demands extra time and energy from you. This is a good thing -- you'll love the journey. Take good care of yourself so you don't burn out on the pace.
● General: You're definitely hard working -- that's for sure. So no matter what you're asked to do, you'll find the energy and time to get it done. Don't let anyone's jealousy stop you from accomplishing what you've set out to do, either. It's not your fault you know how to prioritize, organize and get things done -- and all the while, grab the attention of the higher-ups.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Focus on household numbers, budgets and other places where the details live. You have a knack -- which will only be magnified by today's particular energy -- for simplifying complicated figures.
● Finances: Is the pen mightier than the sword, or one and the same? Your bank statements used to be like love letters, but now they're like a knife through the heart. Leave them unopened, Pisces.
● Love: Some uplifting and exhilarating moments are waiting for you. To get in the right mindset, indulge in something you love. Personal matters will soon be on the mend, which is even further a cause for celebration.
