Horoscopes Sunday 21st August 2022
Aries 21 March - 20 April
Something on your mind, Aries? As messenger Mercury opposes escapist Neptune, you might prefer to forget about it rather than sort it out now. And perhaps just for today, this is not a bad idea. This dreamy aspect encourages you to simplify your schedule, and to lose yourself in an inspiring movie or go somewhere beautiful. Avoid crowds, and relish some peace and quiet.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
You have a natural creative ability that can be impressive, if you decide to develop it. The coming weeks encourage you to hone a skill or talent, to the point where you feel confident and begin to attain mastery over it. Don't listen to others who might try to put you off, as this is a peak time to showcase your work and get people interested. You never know where it might lead, Taurus.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
Your focus could be scattered with so many things of interest to you now, that Mars is hot-footing it through your sign. And with thoughtful Mercury your ruler opposing aquatic Neptune, you might find it even more difficult to concentrate on crucial details. Perhaps you shouldn't even try! Have something important on the boil? Deal with it tomorrow when Pluto can assist.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
You may have a compelling reason to spend time with someone. With Mercury facing off with Neptune and moving to align with Pluto, thoughts of this encounter could cause you to dream and fantasize about what the outcome might be. While this can be a beautiful thing, it may also be a tad stressful if you can't stop thinking about it. Relax, and let things happen naturally.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
With Mercury in the orderly sign of Virgo, a project or job may be claiming a lot of your time and attention, and you can be heavily invested in the outcome. If so, keep tempting thoughts out of your mind, if they encourage you to cut corners or find a quick fix, especially with ethereal Neptune in the mix. Do your best Leo, and you'll send the right signals to all the right people.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
Things may not be quite as they seem, as a nebulous Mercury/Neptune tie could confuse matters. This might apply to signing a deal or discussing a key issue, as well as pondering a decision. There's also a chance of a skewed perspective. If something is important, you might want to read the small print, check the facts or hold back from signing anything. Trust your instincts, Virgo!
Libra 24 September - 23 October
With dreamy Neptune shimmering in your lifestyle sector, sticking to a routine may not be the easiest thing. Sparkling ideas and impulses can lead you to change your mind, and try something else that appeals to the imagination. You might be drawn to explore spiritual activities such as yoga or meditation, or to get involved with creative projects that involve you best talents.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
Exploring your creative potential looks to be rewarding, and a good way to channel intense energies. Whether you have an inclination towards arts, crafts, music or anything else, being able to express yourself could be therapeutic and enjoyable. At the same time, activities that enable you to appreciate beauty, such as a walk in nature, might help you tap into inner peace and calm.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
While a Mercury/Neptune link can inspire you to keep a low profile, the Sun in a forward- looking sector, encourages you to head out in search of new opportunities. Yet it could be easier to stay at home watching a movie, reading a book or doing anything that allows you to unwind. If you're tired, perhaps it's wise to listen to your body and have an easy, but enjoyable day.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
Mercury's face-off with Neptune across your communication axis, can make it easier to get the wrong end of the stick. One simple slip-up could lead to a trail of misunderstandings and mishaps. Staying alert at key moments might help prevent this. Your horoscope suggests that you double check the times of appointments, dates and even deadlines, as this may assist the smooth running of your plans.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
Try to keep your transactions simple and don't complicate matters, and you'll avoid unnecessary mistakes. This could be key where finances are concerned, as the easier the deal or interaction, the less room there is for a mix-up that might take a while to resolve. Still, Mercury links to Neptune today and to intense Pluto tomorrow, so you'll need to be strong to sidestep temptation.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
Prefer to give someone the benefit of the doubt, and accept them at their word? With dreamy Neptune in your sign, it could be easy to attribute this person with traits or qualities that you have imagined, and that might not be real. With relentless Pluto also in the mix, it's wise to listen to a friend who encourages you to be cautious and take your time, rather than being too trusting.
