The Moon passes over Uranus today, which can create a lot of excitement. At the least we can find ourselves being a little bit more unpredictable, and doing things on impulse rather than what is strictly planned.
By the end of the day she also angles up brilliantly to both Venus and Jupiter, thus creating one of the most uplifting of all planetary connections. If you do decide to head off out on the spur of the moment for a weekday social, it may be just the tonic you need. For your FREE Daily Horoscope Wednesday 5th August 2015 please read below...
Aries 21 March - 20 April
Although there are opportunities for fun and entertainment, the reality is you may be limited by the amount of time you can spend enjoying yourself. Edgy links between Venus, Jupiter and Saturn suggest you'll feel bad about kicking back and relaxing when there's work to be done or problems to resolve. Today, go for it anyway!
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
If a budding relationship needs a jump start, then you might find that inviting a friend back to your place for a coffee, or a fun get-together enlivens your connection. However, if this person seems aloof or prefers to hold back for now, there's not much else you can do except to be patient and gently go with the flow.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
The Mars Saturn link can give you an extra edge, helping you to focus your efforts and forge ahead to the completion of your goals. And, though you might encounter one or two obstacles along the way, this will likely add fuel to your fire - making you even more determined to achieve all you set out to do. Good for you if so.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
Your creative flair takes a practical turn, enabling you to come up with solutions to a host of problems. The only issue that might hold you back is not feeling in the mood to take on further challenges, though you feel you should. Pace yourself, and if you're in need of some light relief, opt for a feel-good movie.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
A new idea may be ground breaking and innovative and could have a bearing on career direction or on a personal ambition. If so, don't let it go by the wayside, determine to follow it through, as you could benefit greatly if you do. Later, a decision to expand your horizons might result in an encounter that pleasantly boosts your mood.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
Although an unexpected disruption could get the day off to a rather tense start, your practical stance suggests you'll easily get the better of the situation. Meanwhile, regarding a significant other, your heart may tell you to be more trusting, while your head suggests caution. In this instance, let your heart lead the way.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
Layering on the charm may be the way to get someone to agree to a plan. Of course, if they're really being stubborn you'll need to consider a compromise. Still, with today's positive alignment working on your behalf you'll likely come up trumps no matter what. Later, an unexpected invite can bring on an air of excitement.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
Is a goal or personal ambition worth the price? If such thoughts are on your mind, it can only be because you're entertaining certain doubts. Positive links with Saturn suggest that with a change of perspective, what seemed difficult and time consuming, might suddenly appear fun, easy and a real pleasure to accomplish.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
Though it may be tempting to believe all those promises you hear, it probably pays to be sceptical for now. If you feel things are going too far too fast, especially regarding a plan or idea, then you'll need to speak up. And, although it might seem you're putting a damper on an exciting project, it's better to be safe than sorry.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
The Moon's link to Uranus suggests that though your nerves might be on edge, you shouldn't allow this to encourage impulsive moves or push you to jump to conclusions. Instead, it might help to reflect on the best way to resolve any current dilemmas you might have. Today, a little peace and quiet could bring crucial insights.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
You seem in the mood to socialize, so if responsibilities stand in the way, touch base with a friend later on and plan a few adventures. Plus, things are likely to get much livelier over the weeks ahead as Mars enters into your relationship sector. It can be the ideal time to move in new circles and expand your horizons.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
A creative project gets off to a good start with indications for future success. And, should it require preliminary work, you'll benefit from making a start. However, do give yourself permission to indulge and pamper yourself. Furthermore, getting out and about later on could make for an evening of fun and frivolity, Pisces.
