Daily horoscopes: August 10, 2017


(March 20 – April 19):

Your insistence that things be done a certain way is alienating support.  Be open to what others contribute.  Their ideas have merit.


(April 20 – May 20):

It isn’t easy showing someone the door, but you’ve invested too much energy in one-way friendships.  You soon find worthier comrades.


(May 21 – June 20):

People have made big promises before and failed to deliver, but the one on the table now has real merit.  Maintain a cautious optimism.


(June 21 – July 21):

You’ll do more by being forthcoming than you will by keeping to yourself.  People need to know what you think right now.


(July 22 – Aug. 22):

A betrayal stems from desperation, not malice, however this person has some explaining to do.  Not a word from you until you get an apology.


(Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):

Don’t offer advice unless asked.  This person is more sensitive about a matter than you know and a good-will gesture could easily backfire.


(Sept. 23 – Oct. 22):

Continue debating finer points.  Analytical Mercury sextile mixing-matching Venus shows you’ll fashion an agreement everyone can live with.


(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):

It’s frustrating to lose on a minor technicality. But be a good sport about it. This makes a better impression than any victory could.


(Nov. 22 – Dec. 20):

It will take a while to find the right fit.  All the back-and-forth may be irritating, but long negotiations beget lasting agreements.


(Dec. 21 – Jan. 19):

Polish up those good manners because you’re socializing with people you’ve been on the outs with.  Air kisses help maintain a safe distance.


(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):

A “no” isn’t as final as it sounds. However you must find a way to push without pressuring. Spending time with this person builds trust.


(Feb. 18 – March 19):

Whoops!  You may be leading someone on without meaning to.  Come clean.  You know what this is like and don’t want to encourage false hopes.
