Horoscope for today - Free Daily Horoscope - August 25 2017
● General: It's been tougher than you thought it would be to get things taken care of -- especially with yesterday's surprises. Still, you need to finish up on a certain project. The problem is that you won't be able to get it done when you want it done if you don't ask for help. Oh, go ahead. Asking for help falls neatly under the heading of delegating duties and that's what authority figures do.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: You have some issues that need to be dealt with immediately. As much as you want to put off the confrontation, the sooner you get to it, the better. Besides, chances are it won't be as bad as you think.
● Finances: Being agreeable and charming won't get you anywhere. What you need is a hardhat and a stick of dynamite. No, that's so 2007. Sticking with agreeable and charming will net you the cash.
● Love: Express yourself, especially when it comes to the dating game. After all, relating is all about communicating and participating. Learning to balance on the see-saw of give-and-take is key to healthy relationships.
● General: Stop worrying about the neighbor's reaction -- or anyone else's, for that matter -- to the people you've been associating with lately. If you enjoy them and the feeling is mutual, what's the problem? At some point, you'll need to stop defending your choices, in favor of just letting everyone know that these are the friends you've chosen. Period. This might be one of those times. Go for it! Don't be held back, for any reason other than your own.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Ask and ye shall receive. Others will be predisposed to seeing things your way, so it's a great day to make requests. Close that deal, then move on to the next one. Historically difficult clients should be easy as pie.
● Finances: Your finances are going down, and yet you are feeling good. How can one relate to another? Some people live for a challenge, and you can count yourself as one of the lucky among them.
● Love: Before you can find the relationship of your dreams, you have to be able to identify what it is that you want. So sit down and get silly. Now's the time to brainstorm and create what you want from your ideal mate.
● General: Much as you really want to laugh off a recent conversation you've had with a higher-up, you know darned well you can't. You're taking this far more seriously than you ordinarily would, but you're absolutely right. If you don't pay attention to subtle signals, you'll be wishing you had tomorrow -- or next week. The good news is that no matter what you say right now will end up being the exact, perfect thing to say. Congrats in advance.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Your energy is out of sync with your coworkers right now, so teamwork may be difficult over the coming days. Try to take care of business on your own as best you can.
● Finances: If you have hidden strengths, then you also have hidden limitations. Don't keep them secrets until they rear their heads. Avoiding certain financial situations won't make them go away.
● Love: Time is on your side. If you've been wondering what comes next regarding romance, don't worry. It's just around the corner. In the meantime, enjoy your friends, family and work -- in other words, your life.
● General: Just because your new buds are different doesn't mean there's anything wrong with them. You know that, but you're already choosing jury members and rehearsing your closing statements. But think about this: Is it possible you're so ambivalent about them because you know they're rebels -- and because you're just now realizing you are too? Aha! Your true colors finally shine! Don't be afraid.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: The tasks have finally piled up past your capacity to manage them, but don't stress out. You'll be able to cut it all down to a manageable size if you complete one endeavor at a time.
● Finances: You could charm the emperor into believing he's wearing a fine suit of clothes. No, wait, that's been done. But if you come up with the right pitch, you can charm your way into the backing for any project, so you might as well keep it legit.
● Love: Love can't always be easy, but it's important to make headway while you can. You've got energy to spare right now, so put what you have to offer out there into the world. Let the universe take care of the rest.
● General: Everyone's emotions are running on high and just this once, yours aren't any exception. Okay, so you're usually calm, cool, and collected -- oh, and unbiased, unprejudiced, and eminently fair. That's what you're usually like. At the moment, however, you'll back away from anything that doesn't allow you to tell it like it is. Oh, go ahead. How often do you get this way? You're so very entitled.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Don't let the details bog you down. Keep pushing through it all, and before you know it, you'll be on the other end looking back. Just know that the hard work you're putting in now will pay off.
● Finances: Most people don't need to put their arrogance on parade. That's traditionally a role we project onto celebrities. But some people decided to strut their stuff and now it's raining on everyone. Don't let that keep you from sharing your umbrella.
● Love: Your enthusiasm is contagious. The stars give you a calling, and you're determined to answer. With an attitude like that, how could events not simply line up for you? A certain someone starts to seem inevitable too.
● General: It's almost time to put your plans in action. Consider, for example, that new friend you've been dying to spend some time with. The one who's been hinting around that they might be interested in more from you than just a platonic relationship. Why not give this a trial run? See if there's not something there. Just be sure you can go back to being friends if it doesn't work out.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Most of the day's work will be surprisingly fun, especially as you find new and nutty ways to meet your goals. Odds are someone higher up will like what they see and want to incorporate your ingenuity.
● Finances: Is making money by any means really what you want? It shouldn't take too much soul searching to find your answer. Once you reaffirm you basic human value, a good dinner is in order.
● Love: Could it be? Is that your mojo starting to work again? After a brief hiatus, you feel like it's time to get your game on. Take baby steps. Flirt a little with the barista at your local coffee shop and see what happens.
● General: After days -- or maybe even weeks -- of rooting around, trying to find someone you can truly get close to, you'll be more than happy with today's events. The universe has seen fit to connect you with someone who'll be able to let their hair down, become truly intimate and partner up. Ready? Because this is the real thing. Of course, you can't win if you don't play. If you know someone who answers this description, make sure you're with them. If you don't, get dressed and prepare to mingle.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Your issues will be at the forefront of today's agenda, whether you put them there or not. Take advantage of the attention to ensure you get the support you need. Otherwise, you'll be left to figure it out on your own.
● Finances: When people work together toward a common goal, it's a thing of beauty. But when they're at cross purposes, there is no value to be found. Don't be possessive of business partners; their problems are hiding beneath the surface.
● Love: The look of love is in your eyes, so train that gaze only on parties that you're truly interested in. (Of course, you can't help it if someone gets in the crossfire. Just return them to their natural habitat.)
● General: You may not have anywhere special to be today -- which will be a really, really good thing. In fact, even if you do have somewhere to be, bet you won't be there. You'll be far more in the mood to use all the delightfully passionate energy the universe is passing out in a far more private place. And you'll have absolutely no problem finding someone to join you.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: You're feeling emotionally centered, and you can work that power in many ways. Lunch and dinner meetings are especially auspicious for you, so see if you can sneak a little business on to the menu.
● Finances: It's one thing handling other people's money, or even reading about it in the paper, but when it comes to your own retirement, suddenly gambling seems downright reckless. Proceed with caution.
● Love: Big changes are afoot in your love relations, and frankly, they're just in time. Now it's up to you how you want those changes to appear. Be original, be innovative and be bold. Now's the time to make a clean sweep.
● General: Intensity is the name of the game at the moment. You're in the mood for it, and more than willing to participate. That could be great fun if you're with the right person -- but if you happen to be involved with someone who's just a little too intense, or if you've ever worried about them being more than just dangerous in a sexy way -- well, then, leave it alone. You can find that same intensity without worrying about your safety.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Your budgetary instincts are reminiscent of a bloody massacre right now -- so maybe it's best if you just put that knife away and take care of other business. You can get back to the financial slaughter later on.
● Finances: All the talk about the economy is actually starting to get boring. Is that a good sign or a bad one, or none at all? Instead of waiting to find out, just keep busy.
● Love: You're looking fine and feeling fierce. Go ahead and shake what your momma gave you. After all, you're way too hot to be kept under wraps. It's time to let the world experience what you have to offer.
● General: You usually don't have time to mess around with long, involved explanations, detailed descriptions or drawn-out instant replays of who said what to whom. But at the moment, you just can't get enough of it -- all of it. So if someone tries to blow you off with just a couple of quick quips, you won't stand for it. Don't take 'no' for an answer -- get the information you need and don't settle for less.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Your boss or main client is a handful right now. These high-profile personalities will see their needs as much more intense than they really are, and you'll have to massage their egos just a bit.
● Finances: Being intellectual can get you out of this jam, even though your gut reaction is emotional. Don't go overboard but sift through your thoughts, then toss out whatever extra is making you panic.
● Love: Chance meetings could lead to great things, as long as you're willing to take a risk. They don't have to be scary daredevil-type risks either. Even a change of lunch venue could lead you to someone special.
● General: Just because your companion is trying hard to keep things calm doesn't mean you should deliberately stir the pot. You know that, but keeping quiet is still going to be difficult, especially if you have something on your mind that's itching to come out. Does it need to be verbalized? That's up to you. Whatever you decide, your loved ones will still adore you either way, but your popularity among the ranks might slide just a tad.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: You're a customer magnet right now, attracting people who might never have thought they needed you. Keep them coming in with your charismatic draw -- there's always room for more.
● Finances: Excuse me, is your name Cassandra? You have a unique way of looking at the current financial situation but no one is listening to you. Use it to make your own private profit.
● Love: Someone is your biggest fan. Has it ever occurred to you that all their cheers might be a signal for some deeper feelings? If you think you could respond in kind, it might be time to explore this option.
● General: Someone who's introduced to you by either a family member or a coworker could end up being a part of your life for a very long time -- but you two might not be able to take your show on the road just yet. If you can't see each other publicly right now, it might be best to wait until you can. You know how you are about honesty and integrity. Why get this off to a bad start?
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: It's morale-building time. Even if you work alone or you're still low on the totem pole, your efforts to keep yourself and those around you pleased will pay off handsomely -- someone's definitely watching you!
● Finances: Buy, sell -- you're feeling overwhelmed, and some action seems called for. If you don't know what to do, take comfort in knowing that it's just not a good day to move, even if you knew which direction to go in.
● Love: Before you get what you deserve in this life, you have to be willing to visualize it. If love hasn't worked out the way you thought it would ask yourself what you really want. Find a creative way to express it.
