Horoscope for today - Free Daily Horoscope - August 29 2017
● General: Getting others to cooperate with you will be a piece of cake -- even though you'll secretly feel you have better things to do. You won't consciously be spinning a charming web, but your words will definitely be captivating enough to talk anyone into anything. Needless to say, if you have a public engagement, you're golden. And these temporary verbal super powers won't hurt you too badly in the private arena, either.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Your mind is clear and focused, and you're in a good position to get to the heart of anything you're working on. Just be careful about going too far and tearing down the foundations.
● Finances: Regular exercise used to put out the fires that kept you from working. But these days the anxiety is so intense that it's scorching. You need to engage in sports if you want to make the money today. The more demanding, the more productive you'll be.
● Love: Your social graces are astounding. You know exactly what to put out there and what to play close to your chest. It's part of what makes you so appealing. A certain someone finds your sense of discretion most intriguing.
● General: The depth and breadth of your emotions for a certain someone will become quite evident over the next few weeks -- and most especially over the coming days. If you're really determined to be single, you can keep that up -- but it won't be easy. If you're looking for a long-term partner, why keep looking? You obviously have a candidate on hand, someone you're quite fond of, who feels just the same about you.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Try sitting down and sketching out your career or business road map. Planning will go well for you, especially if you look at the smallest pieces of the puzzle.
● Finances: Nothing is written in stone yet. If you're finally one up on someone else, that still doesn't mean you've won a long standing power struggle. Your financial situation and theirs are not yet stable.
● Love: Concentration makes things happen. It's a good time to winnow out your love prospects and look at the few who might really have the potential to go the distance. Making a pro/con list might not be a bad idea, either.
● General: You're going to be on the receiving end of some wonderful attention, and you're going to be giving some out. This doesn't mean you'll be so totally absorbed in romance that you won't have time for more pressing matters, such as family issues, your career and the state of your health -- but it does mean it will be awfully tough to make an appointment with you.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Look high and low for all the elements you might have missed on the first run-through. Make sure you cover every base when it comes to your work next week -- give everything the once over twice.
● Finances: Since no one knows just what to do about the economy, why not do some light debating? No one is in the mood, Gemini, so keep your ideas in check until you're with like minded people.
● Love: You're a talker today. Balance out this energy with a judicious dollop of quiet. You'll find that this space gives you the chance to reconnect with your own thoughts as well as those of a potential sweetheart. Enjoy the silence.
● General: Don't be surprised if you start feeling unusually introverted today. This astral energy is way more intense lately, and it's creating stress in your life. You'd rather crawl into bed and hide away from the world. This is a bonafide case of the blahs. Honor your feelings by trying to escape from the chaos going on around you. Ask around -- maybe someone will pick up the slack for you today.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Sometimes you can be most productive by doing practically nothing. For now, try to avoid movement on any front unless it's absolutely mission-critical, which shouldn't be much.
● Finances: You're no bargain basement shopper, but someone else is making one extravagant purchase after another. How can they, in these times? They could be running up the red for all you know, so don't bother comparing yourself to them.
● Love: Achieving that fine balance between stability and excitement in your love life is a never-ending process. You get there, and then you teeter to one side or the next. Soon you'll find a workable rhythm.
● General: More than a couple of things are on your shopping list, and you're not willing to wait until tomorrow -- and definitely not until next week -- to have them, sale or no sale. You're after what no one else has so that the entire world will be able to see just how unusual and different you are. If it's a major purchase you're thinking about making, why not wait just one more day to whip out that plastic? No one's saying you can't go shopping. Just leave your checkbook and credit and ATM cards at home.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Resist the temptation to put off the details you can deal with now. If you delay, they'll become too much to bear, and you won't have time to give them the proper attention once the momentum of the week revs up.
● Finances: You may feel like you're about to go down in flames, but you're actually setting the stage for your biggest achievement. There's nothing like a self made millionaire, unless it's someone who rises from the ashes.
● Love: You're used to getting your way, but you might be overcompensating for that fact by being too accommodating with a potential romance. After all, you can't totally obliterate your own wants and desires, nor should you.
● General: Today you might want to slide on over to the slow lane -- after all, you've been racing faster than the speed limit for far too long. Tons of interesting stuff is going on now, and if you don't ease up on the gas pedal, you may miss out. Sure, it's nice to have a lot going on in your life, but sometimes it's just as nice to step on the brakes and take a more leisurely route to where you are going. The landscape is lovely in your life right now -- why not take a longer look?
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Research will be important and fruitful for you today. Get all the facts, even if it takes all day. You'll need to be armed with as much information as possible when you hit the ground running tomorrow.
● Finances: When you were in the black, all was well with the world. Suddenly people are overbearing and breathing down your neck. It's obvious to the world, so make sure it's clear to you, that your reaction is all about your bank account.
● Love: The theme of partnership is on your mind and no wonder. You manage to work wonders while working in tandem in just about every area of your life. Now you're starting to wonder how your love life could benefit as well.
● General: After yesterday's dilemma, and last night's sweetness, you're not quite sure what you're feeling. But it is wonderful to be feeling something, isn't it? Still, you're wearing your rose-colored glasses again, so you might want to ask a dear one for advice -- yes, again. Hey, think about it. You've certainly done your share of listening to them lately, haven't you? Now it's your turn to do the talking.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Life is happening right now, so make sure you get it all down on paper, film, video or whatever it takes to record things for posterity. You won't regret taking the time to catalog these special moments.
● Finances: Others look to you for answers, but you don't have any details. That's okay, because they don't really matter anyway. No one is expecting a bail out, just some moral support.
● Love: Romance is light, easy, breezy, and charming. It's a good time to do something whimsical together. Go for a boat ride, take a walk through an unknown neighborhood and get to know each other.
● General: You've been associating with this person for weeks now, and you really feel at home with them. The good news is this person feels the same about you. So why not get together with them today? If you're feeling guilty about the friends you feel you've left behind, invite one or two along for the ride. It might be fun to see them all together.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: You are in a great position next week to woo new clients or customers over to your side. You won't have to put forward much effort -- your presence alone should be enough to do the trick.
● Finances: When you're making money hand over fist, work is like a love affair. When you're not, dealing with your boss is ten times harder. Is it you or your boss? Whoever it is, don't get too stressed.
● Love: If you're looking for love, a great social opportunity drops into your life. You're tempted to say 'yes' to the party and then cancel, but get out there or else! You and someone special could really have a moment.
● General: It's one of those days -- one of those romantic days when anything and everything will remind you of the one you love. And you know how that goes. You've certainly been around someone who's in love, someone who can't help but bring the conversation back to their sweetheart, no matter how hard you try to change it. Telling you not to be that way won't help. But do try to be merciful.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Communication will be difficult today, especially as it pertains to family members and friends. You're still coming down from the adrenalin of last week. Take it easy while you continue to process.
● Finances: There are plenty of opportunities for growth that don't require money. In fact, they require a lack of funds. Your travels might be coming to a halt, but your inner journeys are just beginning.
● Love: It's like someone threw a monkey wrench into this potential romance. At first, you couldn't see the problem because you were too close, but now the stars give you a double dose of perspective.
● General: You thought you'd be dashing around for days, trying to ditch that electric bolt of energy that hit you yesterday. Suddenly, as of this morning, you're feeling a little kinder and gentler. Sure, your friends are startled -- no, amazed. That's okay. You're entitled to turn into a lover, not a fighter, every now and then. Oh, and don't hesitate to stay up late and spoil someone without worrying about the residual guilt. Nice, huh?
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Though you'll feel like moving forward at high speeds, try to keep it in first gear today. Unexpected obstacles could be hazardous if you can't react to them quickly enough.
● Finances: A wolf is sheep's clothing is hard to spot. But a sheep in wolf's clothing -- that's even harder. Someone too proud to beg for your resources is acting like a hunter instead.
● Love: Large gatherings inspire all your best and most sociable impulses. You don't need to call attention to yourself, but anyone with an ounce of perception admires the subtle way you can work a crowd.
● General: After the stress and tension of the past couple of days, you'll be happy to know you're due for a nice, relaxing day -- as long as you find someone delicious to hide out with. Knowing you, that won't be a problem, but you'd better get busy! Don't keep that special person waiting -- or risk them thinking they should make plans with someone else because you're not going to call. Get to them, and now.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: You'll feel like sitting tight for the day, without the usual impulses to bust out or try new things. Harness that energy, and you will get a leg up on the competition when you go back to the office tomorrow.
● Finances: The relationship between the larger economy and your pocket is extraordinary. It can make you feel like just another cog in the machinery or like an important player, depending on how you see yourself.
● Love: Being loosey-goosey when it comes to love hasn't been working quite the way it used to. Perhaps this is a hint that it's time to apply a little strategy. You don't have to over plan -- just be judicious with your choices.
● General: More love, romance, and passion are on today's agenda than you can handle. The stars are setting you up on several wonderful blind dates over the next three weeks or so, making you quite the happy camper when it comes to la la love! Oh, and the individuals the universe sends your way? Needless to say, they'll be equally delighted with you; expect lots of genuflecting.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: When you go into the office tomorrow, hone in on the details of the latest project or agreement -- your sharp eye will catch the one piece that will make the difference between mediocrity and success.
● Finances: You'll be wishing for more productive days -- for more reasons than one. If your fellow workers used to get on your nerves, now that there's not much going on they're a real problem. Don't get carried away in their dramas.
● Love: The stars give your already impressive intuition a sharper edge when it comes to questions of hierarchy. You're no status-monger, but you can tell when a date might be a little too into the 'it' scene.
