Mercury's upbeat connection with Jupiter makes the coming days excellent for planning as we can combine the bigger picture with the insight needed to make it work.
However, it's best not to promise more than we can deliver so as to avoid the embarassment that can result from letting others down. For your FREE Daily Horoscope Tuesday 23rd August 2016 please see below...
Horoscopes Tuesday 23rd August 2016
Aries 21 March - 20 April
A potent blend of energies comes to a peak over the days ahead as Mars joins with Saturn and both angle towards Neptune. As a result, an idea that's taken time to develop may seem to be undermined by forces seemingly beyond your control. However, if you stand firm you may find that although some changes may be necessary, you could well emerge stronger overall.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
A move out of your comfort zone might reveal you have more options open to you than you thought. Liaising with people who are involved in activities you'd like to take up can be the spur that encourages you onward. There's an edgier aspect showing up too though, which suggests you shouldn't let friends influence you against this, if this is what you want to do.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
If anything, the present situation seems to be encouraging you to guard against wishful thinking. In particular, with the Moon in Taurus linking to Neptune and Pluto, the cosmos is encouraging you to be practical and realistic. By all means have big ideas, but you need to be sure that they'll translate into reality. If not, you may encounter set-backs further down the line.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
You could learn something to your advantage about a certain issue over coming days, especially if you have previously struggled to get a grip on this matter. Yet something you had dismissed as being wishful thinking may begin to shape up more hopefully. If it does, it may be because of a natural interest that has encouraged you to push ahead, despite any obstacles.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
If you've been faced with a matter that has taken the wind out of your sails over recent months, then the days ahead could be a turning point. However, you may need to fight against feelings of hopelessness that could see you ready to give up. This can be an opportunity to use the current Mars and Saturn combo to rise above such emotions and keep momentum going.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
People you meet while socialising or even travelling, home or abroad, may appeal greatly with such encounters leading to friendships or perhaps even more. However, if you want things to develop further then you'll need to encourage regular contact. If you don't, you may find that such connections are great while they last, but could gradually fade away over time.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
The Moon's connection with Neptune suggests you may be looking for an escape, particularly if you have a lot to contend with. However, as this aspect is fairly easy-going, you may find the release you're looking for in purchasing a few small treats. Although doing so could encourage you to splash out Libra, your love of luxury suggests you'll think "why not?"
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
When it comes to your resources, the present set-up suggests you could let others get away with things that aren't in your best interests. Don't! And with Mars linking to Saturn and angling towards Neptune, the present focus encourages you to stand firm. In particular, finances, friendships and loved ones may not make for such a happy mix at this time, Scorpio.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
The current picture suggests that although you may go out of your way to help someone, don't forego your own feelings and needs completely. As Mars is now in the same degree as Saturn in your sign, your energies need to be tightly focused on what is really, really essential. Your horoscope suggests spreading yourself too thinly is unlikely to help you to achieve this, so do prioritise, Archer.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
Any part of you that loves to explore new territory or discover new possibilities is to the fore. However, this impulse can conflict with a tendency to stick with the status quo. Even so, the bigger picture suggests that it may be time to explore a path you've been fascinated by for some time, even though a part of you may seem to resist this. See where this leads.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
Someone in a position of authority may act very familiar with you, which could leave you feeling somewhat confused. However, with lively Uranus connecting to both Mars and Saturn, you may find that holding a conversation with them reveals a surprisingly different perspective. It could be that they admire your staunch qualities and genuinely want to know you better.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
Today's planetary influences certainly see you keen to achieve a goal or certain outcome. However, you may swing between giving your all or going with the flow. You might do your best work though, if you can find a compromise between the two. A period of hard work followed by a time of reflection can allow you to make progress, though tweak things if needed.
