Horoscope for today - Free Daily Horoscope - August 6 2017
● General: If you would rather be by yourself today, be by yourself. And if you'd rather be smack dab in the middle of a bustling crowd, then head for where the action is. You need to do whatever it is that makes you feel most comfortable right now. Luckily, there is little if any pressure on you to conform right now, so if you feel like breaking away from what everyone is doing today, that shouldn't cause any waves with people. People who care about you want you to be happy.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: It's true that nothing gets done without teamwork, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't take credit for individual efforts. Make sure the higher-ups know who's responsible for what.
● Finances: You have no trouble reading others but how you use that information can be problematic or turn a profit. Being charming to get what you want is just plain wrong today so put your selfish streak aside.
● Love: The universe works in unfathomable ways. Let yourself relax and stop searching for the one. You'll start having ever so much more fun -- and, ironically enough, you'll probably end up meeting someone great.
● General: As the leader in a group today, you need to take into account what it is the rest of the group members want. Being the boss doesn't mean that you get to do whatever you want! It means you have to what is best for the group. Try to be extra sensitive to the people who don't really know what's going on -- it's up to you to bring them up to speed. By the end of the day, everyone will be working well together. You'll get a rush from the people around you.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: An unexpected boost in your morale will spur you to finish up a big project or work a few extra hours to start a new one. Who would have thought such a little thing would make such a major difference?
● Finances: There are plenty of ways to think of the situation as exciting. At the very least, you don't have the opportunity to get lazy. So take on your current challenge by the horns, even in a bear market.
● Love: A romantic getaway is just what you need to jump-start your love life, especially if you're in a situation that needs a little more spark. If you're swinging single, the trip will lead you to someone very enticing.
● General: When was the last time you put yourself at someone else's service? True, it can be a humbling -- or even humiliating -- experience to do someone else's bidding, but it can also be very rewarding. Find a friend or relative who is overwhelmed by their life right now and let them know that you are there for them. Offer to run errands, help out with baby-sitting, or just listen to them vent their frustrations. You will be surprised by how satisfied you feel.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Something you'd never see coming will take your industry by surprise -- and work to your advantage. Early adoption will be the key, so get ready for just about anything. What you do is entirely up to you.
● Finances: You're starting a lot of projects that just don't seem worth finishing. But the person who snaps them up will figure out how to turn a profit. Does that make you want to see them to completion yourself?
● Love: You like someone. Turns out someone else you know has the same feelings. Well, a little friendly competition never hurt anyone -- just as long as you make sure that it stays friendly. Be forthright and honorable.
● General: Be on the lookout for some emotional intensity and upheaval to start happening with one of your friends today. Signs to watch for include a sudden change in their attitude, them flaking out on a commitment they made, or any other incident that involves acting out of character. As soon as you think something is going on with them, check in and find out if there is anything you can do. A small assist on your part could make all the difference in improving their day.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: You're jumping past the competition in leaps and bounds. Maybe that's because you know how to anticipate the next big change before it happens, putting you one step ahead of the others in your industry.
● Finances: Finances are affecting your domestic life. It's hard to maintain some semblance of happiness when money is tight, but you can do better than work on appearances. In fact, even bliss is possible.
● Love: Not just anyone gets an all-access pass to your heart. Those who manage to get past the first few tests are truly exceptional indeed. Now it's time to separate the dilettantes from the true contenders.
● General: You need to let go of your ego today -- and just have fun! When you're overly concerned about how you come off to other people, you can rarely be who you truly are! So if you want people to understand the Real You, you have to be the Real You. That means you can't hide your goofiness, your geekiness, or your silliness. You gotta show all the colors that make up your freak flag, and not be afraid of how they may or may not clash with others. People respect other people who can keep it real.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: If you've been waiting for an extra burst of energy to spur you to action, now's your chance. Don't delay: Launch into that new project or pitch your big idea now. There's never been a better time.
● Finances: If you're used to getting your needs met by material goods, you're in for a rude awakening. But don't despair. Getting them met by other means is infinitely more satisfying once you get the hang of it.
● Love: Get your mind and body moving. Walk to a movie house showing a foreign flick. Bike down to an art gallery to catch the latest in sculpture. Who knows? Along the way, you might just encounter a new romantic prospect!
● General: It's the differences between you and your friends -- not the similarities -- that keep you all close, believe it or not. So embrace and respect the fact that they don't always agree with you! Sure, you may not believe those who hold different views, but you should always believe in your friends! Harmony doesn't happen when all notes are the same, it happens when different notes come together and create a beautiful sound. Love the music that you and your friends make.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Don't meddle. You'll make more progress on the projects you're dealing with if you keep yourself focused on your own work and stay out of your coworkers' business.
● Finances: Is this a bump in the road or the end of the pavement? What you're experiencing are more than minor set backs, but they're still nothing insurmountable. Have a deep conversation with your partner if you need reassurance.
● Love: Your consistency is one of your prime virtues. But has it occurred to you that you could stand to be a little unpredictable when it comes to love? Not only will it keep you on your toes, but it'll also brighten your spirits.
● General: A relationship that began rooted in business is starting to show signs of being much more congenial than ever before -- could this be a new friendship, or even a new romance? Slow down there, buddy! Take these new developments very, very slowly. A lot is riding on continued harmony for you two, so you need to be very careful where you take things. Stick with things the way they are for today, but think about when in the near future it would make sense to take the next step.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Your personal life may invade the workplace today, overtly or discreetly. It won't be a disaster, but it will make things a little uncomfortable for you until it subsides.
● Finances: It's a lot easier to balance socializing and work when the work dries up. Or is it? The socializing is suddenly nowhere to be found, either. Water the garden you have been neglecting for money.
● Love: How many more minutes can you spend hoping someone will call you? The truth is ... a lot. But can you afford them? That is the question. Either call them, or get off your couch and get outside. Have some fun!
● General: Why are you in such a hurry right now? The goal you're working toward isn't going anywhere, and reaching it early isn't going to earn you any extra brownie points. Have you ever considered the fact that you have more to learn from the process of reaching your goal than from actually reaching it? You'll have to find another place to channel all of your high energy today. Hit the gym. Go dancing. Run around the block. Physical exercise will help you slow your roll.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: You're thinking more deeply than usual about the basic elements of your job, and you might reach a philosophical epiphany that changes the way you relate to it. This is the breakthrough you've been waiting for!
● Finances: Picking a winner has never made you sweat more. Times call for careful thought, and even then decisions are harder than usual. Toss ideas back and forth with a trusted advisor.
● Love: An adventure stimulates the brain, lifts your spirits and, best of all, gives you many new opportunities for love. So give something new and daring a try. Maybe not skydiving, but something similar.
● General: You can expect a ton of invitations, opportunities and special requests to hit your email inbox today. Sure, everything will sound tempting, but you can't do it all -- and you shouldn't. In fact, you should do none of it. It's time for you to slow down the pace of your days. Take on fewer commitments in your life, and remember what it's like to have free time! Too much has been going on lately, and you're in danger of losing perspective on who you really are.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Don't hesitate to take up a coworker or supervisor on their offer to help. They wouldn't be asking if they didn't mean it. Just make sure you return the favor -- after all, you're a team player!
● Finances: Find out your rights where money is involved. Sooner is definitely better than later. You can get a lawyer when you're out for justice, or you can call one in way before you form a posse.
● Love: Ages ago you had a sense of connection with someone, only to have them go AWOL. Well, now they're back, the connection is still there -- except now it's turned into something romantic. Take advantage of it.
● General: People are always telling you try to 'live in the moment', but today you should not feel the need to follow that advice. If your day is an especially busy one, you'll never have enough energy to fulfill that directive. And if your day is a very quiet one, you might get inordinately preoccupied on the one or two small things that are going on. So instead, look farther down the road of your life. You shouldn't feel pressure to create a specific plan.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: A little change is good, but right now, you'd appreciate some stability, too. Do what you can to put things in order. Control whatever's in your sphere, so change won't come as a shock to your system.
● Finances: You just can't make a dime, and not for lack of trying. Even your work ethic can't help you turn a profit today. Your time would be better spent on rejuvenation and preparing for tomorrow.
● Love: You're focused, centered and driven -- no wonder you're such a success. However, this attitude might need some modification when it comes to your pursuit of life, liberty and love. Learn to go with the flow.
● General: Feeling useful is important in anyone's life, because it makes you feel important -- like you matter. Usually, that kind of usefulness is something you seek out in a school or career context. But today, why not explore how you can be socially useful? Help people make party plans, decorate an event room or put together an invitation list. Heck, volunteer to be the designated driver. Any of these will be great ways to show how you matter (in a social context) to your friends.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Make your presence known and felt: You don't have to travel far to make a difference. Your talents will best serve your business if you can hit the road or somehow get out and act as an ambassador.
● Finances: Personal issues get squeezed out when money is tight. Don't be the kind who suddenly shouts in traffic or resents your neighbors. Go in the other direction and connect with someone you normally would not.
● Love: Just one look is all it takes. This person's been resisting your charm, but they've never had it directed at them full force. Make sure they know you're playing -- you want to be on the same page.
● General: You're in a passive mode today, although you don't have to worry about being anyone's doormat. Your people are looking out for you, and they will handle everything until you are ready to get back into the game. Meanwhile, let everything take its natural course, because the more you interfere, the more you're going to worry. And there's no point in worrying about things you can't control, so don't. Let those in control worry about how things are going to come together.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: If you're pitching a proposal on behalf of a group, make sure you understand exactly what everyone is trying to get across. Don't assume anything! You're all in this together, after all.
● Finances: You'll be tempted to make changes for change's sake, but be sure each swing of the ax makes sense. Think carefully. If it's not an improvement, you could end up even further in debt.
● Love: You want to wrap yourself in a protective cocoon, and that instinct may be right on -- temporarily. Sooner or later, though, love is going to try to find you. You might want to leave your shelter for that reason alone!
