The Sun and Saturn continue to clash, and with the Moon also in Scorpio today, we need to be sure that discretionary spending remains tightly controlled. We might not enjoy splashing out, even if we do.
The upside is that Venus and Uranus continue to combine brilliantly, and this urges us to stay abreast of novel solutions, and more innovative approaches. And, if we get a surprise invite for the weekend, we might do best by accepting it. For your FREE Daily Horoscope Friday 21st of August please read below...
Aries 21 March - 20 April
The Sun is drawing to an end of its passage through the most vivacious part of your solar horoscope, so do what you can to embrace opportunities to engage well with others, over the upcoming weekend. Uranus in your sign connecting with Venus also urges you to be more open to novel or unusual people and social possibilities.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
The Moon accentuates your links to others today. In fact, broadly over the next week you may find yourself more sensitive to the interactions you have with others. If someone seems a bit distant or preoccupied, it can impact more on you. Pleasingly, a more outgoing and friendly time of the year is racing up for you.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
A lot of chatter is set to do the rounds in the next days. Just how much are you going to be influenced by this Gemini? Be conscious of not getting too caught up in anything where your comments can be recycled, but not quite as you said them. Fortunately, a surprise invitation can yet light up the end of your week, brightly.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
Little extravagances may appeal to you Cancer, but you can also apply your skill for marshalling resources shrewdly, to something that is a bit different. This may have been something you have been working on all week, and the more novel it is, the more satisfaction you can gain. Someone older can spark you too.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
Your personal drives and motivations need to mesh in with your emotional needs, and it's possible you could set yourself goals that put too much pressure on your home life, or are giving you less chance to strike the right balance. Despite this, your love and social sectors remain lively and fluid, and can cheer you, Leo.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
The less obvious facets of life can be both a positive, but also a more challenging element of your situation today. The up side is that you may be rekindling a connection with someone from your past or with the memories of an experience which can guide you helpfully now. However, a fair-weather friend may be revealed.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
Your ruler Venus has been forging a dazzling alliance with Uranus, all this week. This has probably led to some lively exchanges with others, and the chance to revitalise friendships, your social whirl or even one close relationship. Yet, don't sacrifice security around finances, by going against some core principles you hold dear.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
A situation may have come as something of a surprise this week, either financially or professionally, when your personal rapport with someone has provided an unexpected dividend. However, don't let this trick you into thinking that you're invincible and that every situation or person you encounter will fall in with what you want.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
The situation you encounter in the next week or so may prove to be surprisingly challenging. I say surprisingly, because something you would normally deal with, with total aplomb, can actually get under your skin somewhat, but only if you let it. Be determined therefore to maintain a real sense of detached proportion.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
Personal hunches or tips from those close to you can still work out well for you this week Capricorn. The thing is, these may not come about in the way you expect or even be about the things you anticipate, and if you retain an open mind, the better you will do. However, if something does surface an old plan may need rethinking.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
Your relationship sector has been a major focus of late, and this week in particular, hopefully there have been some sizzling connections or unexpected developments. However, in more formal situations, your often unusual way of looking at things may not be received with the same level of enthusiasm. Just stay mindful of this.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
It's just as important in the frenetic days we inhabit to look to help others, as much as forward our own hopes and aims. And an act of consideration that you have shown this week, may continue to ripple outwards positively. However, just be sure this doesn't run into playing the role of the martyr. Protect your needs too.
