Horoscopes Wednesday 18th August 2021
Aries 21 March - 20 April
Word jousting may be par for the course today, as a Mercury/Mars blend can encourage you to say it like it is. You could go all out to let someone know how you feel, but if the atmosphere is really charged, then steering clear might be your best option. Still, with Venus in Libra, there may be a way to ease yourself out of this situation if you want to keep the peace between you, Aries.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
If you've been working hard to keep a relationship ticking over, then it could reach a critical point today, when things may threaten to unravel. Feelings might be hurt, and this likely won't help. What can make a difference Taurus, is letting go of the need to be right, even if you know that you've done nothing wrong. Yet if you are sorry, there is great potential to make amends.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
Despite your lively exterior you do have a sensitive side, and this may show up if someone pushes you too far. This could occur now or over coming days, with volatile energies at a peak. And if you're in a stressful situation, you'll likely realise this can't go on. If you decide to swiftly release yourself from circumstances that are doing you no good, you can feel instantly better.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
With Mercury and Mars in your sector of talk and thought making intense aspects, your mind may be spinning as you attempt to find a solution to a complex problem. At this stage, it could be difficult to know what to do next. And if there are powerful emotions involved, it might make things more awkward. Let your instincts take over Cancer, as they can be your one true guide.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
You may think there's no way out of a financial dilemma, but you might have more options than you realise. If you've been thinking of cutting back on essentials and sacrificing those little treats, hold fire. True, things could be a little tight at the moment, but talking this over with someone you trust can give you a range of options, one of which might be perfect for you.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
The point of destiny in your chart is like the needle of a compass, revealing how and where it's best to focus your energy and attention, Virgo. Currently, it's situated in your sector of goals, which can be a call to give careful thought to your priorities. It's time to move up a gear and get started on any plans, and to delegate domestic responsibilities where possible, to facilitate this.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
You could be doing things for people because you like to make them happy. And with sweet Venus now in your sign, you might be even more inclined to help whenever you can. You may need to learn about the power of '€œno'€ Libra. Even though refusing a request can feel like a betrayal, the only person who might be suffering is yourself, if you continue to be so obliging.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
Social events can be important, and you might feel you should attend because others expect you to. This may not chime with you any longer though Scorpio, especially if you've been the go-to person who does all the hard work behind-the-scenes. If you sense that others are taking you for granted, then words could be spoken that will let others know how you really feel about this.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
With Mercury and Mars combining in your sector of career and ambitions, you could be very vocal, Archer. If you have something to say, you won't back down, and if you have an idea to share, others will quickly hear about this too. You can use this aspect to highlight positives or to criticize. Focusing on accomplishing something good and worthwhile may be better though.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
Has someone upset you, Capricorn? If you retaliate, then it could start something that snowballs as long as you feel miffed and upset. If you can shrug this off, then it might sort itself out over coming days. You may find that channelling some of this energy into exercise or physical tasks leaves you calmer. Or if you enjoy competitive sport, this too could help you to unwind.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
Intense feelings may seek an outlet, and with Mercury and Mars merging in a powerful zone, you might be keen to get something out into the open. Doing so could be a relief, especially if you have held onto this for some time. But try not to be too hard on yourself. If you let your inner critic take over, you may feel a dip in confidence. It's time to nip it in the bud, Aquarius.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
You and your partner may have some epic conversations that could dredge up everything you have wanted to say to each other for a while. This can be a great day to clear the air, as long as you don't focus on all that is wrong and forget to mention everything that is good. Too much criticism might make things worse, but your horoscope suggests that a constructive chat may be like pressing the reset button.
