Horoscopes Monday 31st August 2020
Aries 21 March - 20 April
Need a way to deal with intense feelings? With Mercury in your lifestyle zone facing off with mystic Neptune, it might be a good time to delve into yoga or meditation. If you can get a distance from those swirling emotions, you may understand what is triggering them, and what to do about it. The Aquarius Moon could also help you to detach from any awkward situations.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
Sometimes it feels good to be with people with whom you feel deeply relaxed, and can be totally yourself. This might give a respite from a situation that seems to get more complicated the more you try to resolve it. Turn your attention elsewhere, and gravitate to those activities that soothe the soul. You could also find that indulging a hobby is another way to relieve the pressure Taurus.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
It's a good time to clarify what you want, otherwise you might get caught up in a whirlpool of feelings that could sweep you away in another direction. This isn't about wanting what other people think you should have, but what is best for you. Take some time to think about your goals, especially those you are excited about, and turn your focus away from what drags you down.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
When life gets complicated, your first impulse may be to jump in and make sure that you are doing your bit to help others, even if they could manage just as well alone. With Venus in your sign pitted against potent Pluto and sobering Saturn though, even you have to admit that someone in your life might be too demanding, let them know Cancer, and then set firmer boundaries.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
With lively Mercury opposing beguiling Neptune, you may be ready to lose yourself in the joys of a shopping spree, if your work, deadlines or daily life have become too overwhelming. Pause for a moment though Leo, and consider if there is another way to get some relief. Your horoscope suggests delegating certain tasks or reaching out for help, if you can't manage alone. Don't suffer in silence.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
If you and another can't see eye-to-eye, then it's possible this situation might continue for some while unless something shifts. With analytical Mercury in your sign opposing ethereal Neptune though, you may find it easier to put yourself in their shoes. This spiritual aspect can assist you with tuning into their feelings, which could help you to understand them in more depth Virgo.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
Bringing beauty into your everyday life may be one way to feel uplifted, even if things aren't always as you would like them to be. This might mean paying attention to your surroundings, where perhaps an inspirational picture or some flowers could boost your mood every time you look at them. Adding vibrant tones to certain rooms at home can also leave you more upbeat.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
You may be having some intense exchanges that may lead to a stand-off, unless you can handle a tricky situation with care. There could be a temptation to give up and distance yourself from someone if it seems that nothing is going to shift. With Neptune in the picture though, adopting a compassionate stance might give them the necessary leeway for a change of heart Scorpio.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
If dealing with a situation has left you feeling battle weary, then don't give up Archer. Over the coming weeks, you may begin to see progress after a time where there seemed to be little or no movement at all. Everyone needs somewhere to recharge, and current aspects encourage you to make your home your place of healing so you can refuel, ready to make positive strides.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
Dial down the intensity you may be feeling concerning a relationship that seems to be high maintenance right now. The way to do this could be to make some time to detach and reflect, so that your mind isn't caught up in its habitual patterns. Rather than overthink, consider giving this issue space and the person involved more room to share their concerns, as this might help.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
If you feel anxious or are a little touchy on the home front, then it might be down to more subtle factors Aquarius. With sweet Venus making some powerful links feelings can be closer to the surface, making it more likely you'll express them. Talking to someone you deeply trust could help certain emotions to dissipate well before it gets to this stage, and leave you feeling better.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
Don't feel that you have to compromise your vision to suit others. Instead, allow your unique perspective and creative skills to add sparkle to your work. This doesn't mean that you can't take advice, especially if you can see that it is valid. You have plenty of imagination and this is something to cherish, but there are times when others could help you make your ideas real.
