Horoscopes Thursday 16th August 2018
Aries 21 March - 20 April
If vitality seems to have dipped, then it may be partly due to being fully stretched in this busy phase, and Mars your ruler, continuing its rewind. However, today's lunar ties could spur you on to try even harder. Yet the more effort you put in the less you may achieve. See this as a signal that perhaps you should slow down and opt for more relaxing activities and some time out.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
A lunar tie with outspoken Uranus hints that you may say or do something that another finds a tad shocking, and unless you can explain why, they may feel put out. However, this could become a regular occurrence as the unpredictable Uranus rewinds in your sign. Friends may have to get used to the idea that you are changing as a person and so are your ideas and current interests.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
A lack of confidence could be the reason you might not make as much progress as you would like. However, it can go deeper than that, as a focus on a more sensitive zone hints that you may be going through a process of slow and deep-seated change which could influence your day-to-day affairs. There is a lot to be said for not taking on any more than you can handle.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
With a rather intense focus on your sector of relating, your connections with others can shape your life and transform your outlook. Equally, you can have your say too, but may choose not to because you don't want to upset anyone. If you don't make your views known though, your horoscope suggests other people can expect more of you than you are willing to give, which is not sustainable.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
Don't be ashamed to admit there are some things you can't do, as not everyone is born with the same skills and abilities. As the Sun continues in your sign, this is very much a time to play to your strengths, as you can accomplish so much more if you do. Delegate those tasks at which you are not so good to others who enjoy doing them, and you may be well on your way to success.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
You could feel a tad disheartened if it seems progress is slow. This may be down to the present planetary picture though, and to the number of planets in retrograde. There is some good news on the horizon though Virgo, as lively Mercury your ruler, gets ready to turn direct this weekend, and although there can still be obstacles, there can be a gradual improvement as well.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
Compromise can be a key factor in keeping things on an even keel, especially if you are dealing with those who may be stubborn and do not want to change. You may not understand their motives, but attempting to meet then half way could make it easier to forge an agreement. It can seem you are backtracking on your principles, but if nothing is happening it is common sense.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
Tread lightly, as an ongoing and intense focus in your communication zone suggests that your words carry more weight than usual. Although a very subtle aspect could encourage you to bend the truth so as not to upset someone, you could be very forthright if a matter irritates you. However, if you can hold back and come up with a more tactful response, this can be preferable.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
Altering your plans to suit your mood may be no bad thing. With Jupiter your guardian, aligning with elusive Neptune in a private zone, there may be times when you might prefer to keep to yourself. This could be an opportunity to read the latest novel, settle back with a movie or to quietly reflect. The chance to be on your own away from any distractions can do you good.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
With intense planets in your sign for some time to come, you may be faced with choices. However, many of the decisions you make might be based on ideas which helped in the past but may not be useful now. With this in mind, take things one step at a time and test as you go. That way, if something doesn't suit you, you can more easily switch to another option Capricorn.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
Don't feel you have to fit as many activities in as possible, as perhaps the opposite approach might work out better. Consider your priorities and be guided by what is most important to you. While it may be tempting to let others' needs determine your schedule, there can be much to be said for taking some time out just for you, and making this something that is non-negotiable.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
With revolutionary Uranus moving through your sector of communication, your words might shock and surprise even those who think they know you well. This might be the answer though, to bringing sparkle to a relationship that seems stuck in a rut. If you always do the same things together or go to the same places, then this unpredictable energy could quickly change all that.
