Horoscopes Friday 19th August 2022
Aries 21 March - 20 April
The coming days could be like walking a tightrope regards knowing what to say and what not to say, who to be careful around and when to be assertive. Today's Quarter Moon in grounding Taurus, is perfect for taking stock and attending to those matters you can comfortably get done. Don't get bogged down. Allow your creative side to assist you to do and say the right things.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
With a positive focus on your home zone, today's lunation in your sign can find you putting the finishing touches to a project that could make family life more agreeable. Been through a series of ups and downs? A decision you make today might take things to a new and positive level. There may need to be some discussion, but if you can avoid dramas, it will all work out fine.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
Working on a key project with someone? While good communication is key, a deeper perception of their personality and what makes them tick, could enable you to forge a positive connection. Trust your intuition, if it gives you info that might help you bond faster. Mind, with today's lunar phase making some edgy ties, you may need to be flexible to avoid a disagreement, Gemini.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
Wondering whether it's worth joining forces with someone? If so, today's Quarter Moon in your social zone, can inspire you to strengthen this tie. You may get along so well that your friendship becomes deeply personal rather than tied in with a group or community activities, and this might suit you better. If they share the same interests as you, this association could have lasting value.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
The steady Taurus Moon angles towards the Sun, and this potent aspect brings a chance to tie up loose ends before bringing something to a conclusion. Although this should be the easy part, there may be a lot of things to take into consideration, especially if you feel under pressure to get it right. Don't be too much of a perfectionist though, otherwise it might never get done, Leo.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
Something you're keen to accomplish may be about to materialize, which is good news, as it could lead to fresh opportunities in the future. Today's lunation might see you finalizing the details and dealing with any self-doubt or resistance to making it happen. With Mars and Pluto in the equation, letting go of anything that gets in the way of success can be good for you, Virgo.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
Much as you would prefer everyone to get along, this might not be easy, as edgy aspects can pit one person against another. And while the Sun in Leo provides plenty of opportunities for relaxation, other influences suggest that you may have your work cut out to resolve an awkward matter. Less sweetness and more of a no-nonsense approach could do the trick though, Libra.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
If someone is to throw their support behind you, they will need to understand what you are doing. Today's Quarter Moon encourages you to engage and explain, as once they see where this is going, they could be very useful. If there's a downside, be honest about this as well, Scorpio. They'll be even more impressed if you don't hold back, and might shower you with help.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
If good times beckon, but you're stuck trying to finish off a project or some work, don't give up, Archer. Notice any frustration, and dig your heels in further. You may be grumbling as you juggle with issues and minor obstacles, but you're on the home run. Your horoscope suggests giving it one last push and when it's completed, relax and enjoy yourself knowing you've done your absolute best.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
Today's Quarter Moon may be intense, as you could need to let something go so you can move forward. If you've reached a key milestone, you might not be able to go any further until you've done this. It can be like an anchor tying you down, and you've likely known this for a while. Releasing it won't be easy, but once it's done, you'll know you've acted wisely.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
You could be at war with yourself, and perhaps blaming yourself for something that might not be your fault. And while this matter may have been avoided â€œif onlyâ€ things had happened differently, don't take it to heart. Instead of putting the blame on your shoulders, let it go. You will find out the truth eventually, but until then be kind to yourself and relish a little self-care.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
It won't help to get into a spat with a friend or associate, as it's likely no-one will win, and it could upset a relationship that is otherwise steady. The desire to defend an issue just for the sake of it might cause you or another to say things you'll regret. Today's lunar phase hints that there is another way, and that is to try to make amends, even if you have to swallow your pride, Pisces.
