Horoscopes Tuesday 22nd August 2023
Aries 21 March - 20 April
A voice inside may be whispering that you can't do it, when you know deep down that you can. You have a choice of whether to give into feelings of weakness or powerlessness, or to tap into your inner strength and move forward. It could be easier to take the path of least resistance than to step up and take on a challenge. But if you really want it, then some effort is required, Aries.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
You are generally good at saying no, so why is it so difficult now? It might be because you feel sorry for someone and can't bear to hurt them. Over the next day or so, you may be open to other people's vibes, and this could make it difficult to be honest when you really need to be. It's better to rock the boat and cause some temporary upset than give yourself future problems.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
Flattery could open doors for you, so praise your partners and colleagues and encourage them in their plans. However, with Mars forging a hazy tie to Neptune, you may sense that it's better to keep a relationship civil even if it means telling a small lie. Can you keep it up though? Avoid going too wide of the mark. Feeling discouraged? Don't give up, as things are about to change.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
Feel pushed into doing things you don't want to do? If this is happening too often, you may feel resentful. And as Mars opposes Neptune but also aligns with relentless Pluto, something could give. This might be a good thing, as letting someone know exactly how you feel can snap them out of it. Firm up those boundaries Cancer, as you can't afford to let any weakness show.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
This is one of those days when you could be too trusting. With the Mars/Neptune aspect peaking, you may believe everything you're told, leading to you losing money or being taken advantage of in other ways. It pays to be sceptical, no matter how pleasant and responsible someone seems. Dare to question any obvious flaws in others' plans, and expect some interesting answers, Leo.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
If your feelings about your brightest goals have been getting in the way of progress, then you still have dynamic Mars in your sign helping you to be decisive. Your horoscope suggests you could tie yourself up in knots trying to work out the best way forward, when focused action may be all you need to break through any barriers. Keen to solve a mystery? You won't give up until you have the answer.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
You may need to recharge your batteries, and the best way to do so can be to forget about all those tasks you promised you'd finish and take a break. While it's not always easy to stop work and do your own thing, you could plan for some downtime. If you haven't done anything nice for yourself recently, this might be your moment, Libra. Indulge to the max and enjoy yourself!
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
As go-getter Mars faces off with sultry Neptune, this dreamy aspect can heighten the possibility of a romance. A conversation could seal the deal, especially if you've been attracted to this person for some time. But it may work just as well for a current bond, adding a touch of magic just when you need it. Are your instincts trying to tell you something? Listen and act on them.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
You may have big plans, but today the Mars/Neptune opposition is at a peak and Mercury turns retrograde for three weeks, so this could scupper them. Things can go awry, and there's potential to make mistakes that you would naturally prefer to avoid. Tread with care! You can't stop the flow of events, but if you can hold back from making a commitment or deal, do so!
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
Anyone who thinks they can force you to do something doesn't realize how stubborn you can be. Even if they're your boss or manager, they may find that you're not inclined to listen if they talk down to you or are rude. If they ask nicely though, then you'll likely go out of your way to help. It's not that you're being purposely awkward, but that you appreciate respect, Capricorn.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
Even those in positions of responsibility can make a mistake. Someone may mean well, but dealing with them could lead to confusion if money is concerned. This can be remedied. But with forthright Mars facing off with Neptune across your money zone, it helps to make your position clear. Confusion might mess things up, so go over every detail twice for peace of mind.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
A relationship issue may come to a head. This is a good thing, as it's better to deal with it now than never. With an ethereal and mystical aspect occurring, it might seem that you've met the perfect person. But if you're too quick off the mark, you could be disappointed. The pull to connect more deeply can be strong, but holding back for a while will bring crucial insights.
