Horoscopes Wednesday 16th August 2023
Aries 21 March - 20 April
With a New Moon in Leo, it's time to make enjoyment a goal rather than wishful thinking. Whether you prefer sports, being creative, learning a skill or more romantic diversions, they deserve a time and place in your life so you can feel restored. As this lunar phase angles towards Uranus, you could be a tad too impulsive for your own good. Get moving, but don't rush, Aries!
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
Today's lunar phase ramps up the energy in your domestic zone, enticing you to adopt a savvy approach to household tasks and domestic organization. How can you get more done in less time? A quick Internet search could bring up ideas for keeping up in a way that is manageable to you. And as a sign that can be fairly house proud, this is something you may warm to, Taurus.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
You have a naturally curious side that loves to explore intriguing ideas, and today's New Moon might be the reason you're ready to zero in on the latest opportunities. With a focus on your sector of talk and thought, you may be about to make some exciting discoveries. Your horoscope reveals that a seed could be planted that blossoms into a creative project or entrepreneurial start-up, if you can persevere.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
You may notice a greater motivation to get money-spinning projects underway. Whether this means selling unwanted items or finding other ways to drum up extra cash. Indeed, whatever you can do for yourself to feel more secure could have a positive effect, boosting your overall mood. And yet with restless Uranus on the field, you might splurge on something you don't really need.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
It's time to think about yourself, especially if your focus has been on others. This is your chance to take back control and put energy into projects that have personal resonance, Leo. The New Moon in your sign is the best of the year for you, and it encourages you to be the star you are, so shine away! Want to adopt new habits or begin a key project? Now is the best time to go for it.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
You may find yourself in a reflective phase. And if so, this could be an opportunity to get know yourself better. The New Moon in a private and spiritual zone, can be helpful for making a decision that could alter your life, Virgo. Whether this means hiring a life coach so you can live to your full potential or learning to meditate, taking the plunge might radically change you.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
Your social life gets a boost, with a potent lunar phase in this zone. While this might encourage you to expand your social circle and become friendly with those who have influence, it's also an opportunity to showcase your organizational skills by being a team leader and innovator. Get ready too, as there's a chance of an instant attraction, and it could become a tad obsessive, Libra.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
The coming days are perfect for new beginnings related to your chosen job or career, or to kickstart a personal goal. Want to make a good impression? Brush up your CV and consider whether a makeover might give you the confidence to get the job of your dreams. Mind, there's a disruptive energy showing up too, so avoid any spur of the moment decisions just to be safe.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
If life has been busy, then a positive lunar phase in your sector of adventure can renew your spirits. As this zone will be in focus for some time, dare to venture into the unknown and expand your horizons. An aspect to Mars hints at career or business developments that could be the icing on the cake, Archer. Keen to harness the power of innovation? You could do very well if you try.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
You may be drawn to teachings, teachers and ideas that could truly transform your life. Yet if there's one area that's so far resisted your efforts at change, then today's New Moon makes this a good time to tackle it. You'll be eager to drill down to the root cause of any blockages and resistance, and your determination to find answers could be a major turning point, Capricorn.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
With a New Moon and an animated focus encouraging interaction and communication, your relationships could seem generally upbeat. Don't hold back from asking for help, as those you know, and even those you don't, may be only too happy to lend a hand. Still, as this lunar phase angles towards Uranus, don't spoil a home-based DIY project by trying to get it done too fast.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
Key influences can assist you in your quest for better health, with this being a great time for initiating good habits. Take stock and consider how happy you are with your routines and daily life. Could you make a few improvements? And yet with maverick Uranus in the mix, you might agree to a deal or promise something and then regret it. Research any offers first to avoid mistakes.
