With Mars linking to Saturn and angling towards Neptune we may feel more determined than ever to find a way around a situation that may have proved very stubborn.
Yet, resolve could melt away quickly unless we keep our focus on the desired outcome, meaning the next few days could be a test of character. For your FREE Daily Horoscope Friday 26th August 2016 please see below...
Horoscopes Friday 26th August 2016
Aries 21 March - 20 April
Though you may feel disappointed that one project or idea hasn't turn out as hoped, you might have a better experience in another area. A positive alignment in the sector of your situation associated with jobs and lifestyle can bring news that is particularly welcome. In fact, it could more than make up for any plans that have so far failed to materialise, Aries.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
It may be tempting to dwell on issues that have proved a sticking point over recent weeks, but at the same time a blossoming friendship, romance or a positive opportunity can lift your spirits. And even though it might be wise to tread with care, you could discover that giving time and dedication to any new developments can encourage many opportunities for growth.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
Plans you may currently be considering seem focused on domestic arrangements, and following through can prove beneficial. Indeed, if you've been considering ways to earn money from your home, then ideas can come thick and fast in coming days. With Mercury rewinding from next week, be sure to research any major projects that require an injection of cash.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
Your hard work may be about to pay off, as coming days can spotlight an opening or bright opportunity that it might be wise to grasp now. Equally, an intuitive nudge could encourage you to consider a job or career related option that comes out-of-the-blue, so be alert to such a possibility. Someone may speak highly of you Cancer, boosting your reputation and standing.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
Information could encourage you to think along new lines, and might be the catalyst that pushes you to move out of your comfort zone. Your horoscope reveals that although you can have a fearless streak, recent developments may have held you back in one key area, and might have affected your confidence. If so, pleasingly you could begin to feel much more motivated over the coming days, Leo.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
If your mind has been focused on an issue that is dragging on, then the good news is that things may start to sort themselves out. Even so, patience will still be needed over the next few weeks as the potent clash between Saturn and Neptune continues. More immediately though, if you can focus your thinking down to as narrow a range of options as possible, then do.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
You may want to push ahead with an idea, but this might not be the time to do so, Libra. With Mars and Saturn locked together and linking to Neptune, the suggestion is that you would be better to wait for now, as there is a chance of new developments that could put things in a different perspective. In fact, patience may be your biggest virtue over coming weeks.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
If you've put up with people who seem to take advantage of you, then this may be about to change, if it hasn't already. The current focus extols the benefits of having good friends around you who care for you and support you. Therefore, the willingness to include those who can be a drain may seem less and less enticing, encouraging you to pull away.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
Even though Mercury may already be slowing down, prior to turning retrograde early next week, it is currently making positive connections to Venus and Jupiter in your sector of goals and ambitions. Because of this, this can be one of the better times to liaise with others, even if changes do need to be made later. So, if you haven't already, do look to reach out.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
A trip could prove really successful, so if you are off on your travels over the next few days, enjoyment beckons. Even a stroke of fortune is possible through this. This is also a time when the seeds that you planet now could blossom over time, into something more. Information gathering in particular can lay the way for this, so sharpen up on your sources wherever possible.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
The Moon Uranus connection can spark ideas that surprise you. Perhaps you'll perceive a person or a situation in a way that you had not done previously, altering things for the better. In addition, other key influences hint at changes that may come as a result of making a hard and fast decision. This could see some radical changes, but some may be long overdue, Aquarius.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
There may be much to be gained from joining up with others to achieve an outcome you might not be able to accomplish alone. Because the planet of communication, Mercury, goes retrograde next week, use this window of opportunity to share and collaborate. Solo? A shared interest could see you getting to know someone better, and an attraction ensue thereafter.
