With convivial Venus and outward-bound Jupiter at odds with each other, we can have a lot of fun over coming days, but perhaps not much self-discipline.
We may find it easy to give in to temptation, unless we make a point of being firm with ourselves. For your FREE Daily Horoscope Monday 17th August 2017 please see below...
Horoscopes Thursday 17th August 2017
Aries 21 March - 20 April
As the Moon swings into Cancer and your domestic sector, the next couple of days can be an excellent opportunity to indulge in some self-care and nurturing. Don't begrudge yourself this chance Aries, even if only for a few minutes at a time. Moving forward into next week, life can get very busy, so use this opportunity to regenerate yourself and prepare for the challenge ahead.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
A seeming setback could work to your benefit even if it might challenge you for a while. Key influences could see you making a promise that might test your abilities. But by stepping up and having a go you could surprise yourself. Considering a positive lifestyle change? If so, a lively focus could see you willing to commit to changes that you may have put off till now Taurus.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
If you've not accomplished as much as you had hoped, this can begin to change as the rewinding Mercury eases away from its connection to the nebulous energies of Neptune. Although you might still encounter delays over coming weeks concerning matters on the domestic front, it should be possible to make strides. And even if you are retracing your steps, progress can be made.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
If your desires are potent then it's more likely they will be fulfilled. Indeed, the next few days can coincide with an opportunity to acquire something you may have coveted for some time. It's not necessarily a given though, and there may be work to do before you can claim your prize. And each reward often brings its own responsibilities, so careful thought may be required.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
There is a very lively and positive focus on your sign that goes hand-in-hand with a developing Solar Eclipse, which can coincide with rising emotions. You may want to feel in control, but don't feel bad if you don't, as the build up to a potent lunation often brings buried feelings to the surface. As it occurs early next week, a relaxed approach could help you take it in your stride.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
With a potent focus on a more secluded sector it is possible that a minor niggle could develop into something of a worry fest, even if unintentional. As planets in this zone can often stir up deep-seated emotions, then this is no surprise. But if certain fears also rise to the surface then gently moving to unmask them can be helpful Virgo, as you could find they are actually groundless.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
If you've wanted to do more with the resources you have available, then the lively and positive focus on your social zone could make this a reality. Opportunities to offer your services to the community, to charities or to a group can allow you to make a significant contribution. Your horoscope hints that new friends may also show up who could support you in your quest to be a force for good Libra.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
You could find yourself propelled by events that may be hard to resist, and so find yourself in a situation in which a positive move is possible. It could seem that everything is encouraging you to aspire to a new level, and whether a big or small step, it's certainly worth considering. What started as a personal goal could become an ambitious plan, if you're ready to go for it.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
Such is the mood of optimism that if you dare to dream big you could experience a turning point. A positive combination of energies can boost your resolve to take a big step forward. And with a Solar Eclipse in your sector of travel and adventure at the start of next week, you may be ready to soar. A key responsibility will still need to be handled wisely and skillfully however.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
If you have reservations about your finances, this would be understandable considering the feisty energies developing in your zone of shared resources. However, this can be a good thing if it encourages you to look into your situation in more depth. Over coming days there is the potential for you to uncover an opportunity and it may arise as a result of tackling a money issue.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
If you need to make an impression socially or with someone of importance, this can be the time to go ahead. Cosmic forces look to be especially powerful and certain encounters may seem to have a fated quality, as could an invite or leading conversation. What starts out as a simple meeting or chat could morph into much more, and this may only become clear in coming times.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
You may have an urge to do something that could prove inspiring, especially if you have been talking about it for some while. The days ahead can encourage less chat and instead invite you to act, and it is your willingness to do so that could be so impressive. Organization will be key though, as unless you can pin your idea down to a time and place, it may prove rather illusive.
