Daily horoscopes: August 16, 2017


(March 20 – April 19):

It’s amazing how refreshing time spent with loved ones can be.  Touch base with the reasons for why you do the things you do.


(April 20 – May 20):

Being asked to pitch in couldn’t come at a worse time.  You’re feeling depleted.  However your goodwill gesture is worth its weight in gold.


(May 21 – June 20):

Stop tinkering.  Pieces will naturally fit on their own.  But you won’t recognize this if you keep introducing outside elements into the mix.


(June 21 – July 21):

Careful or you’ll talk yourself out of the right course of action.  You’re too focused on contingency plans and losing track of easy access.


(July 22 – Aug. 22):

Resolving a personal matter is as easy as an apology.  Your pride may sting, but your heart will sing at the prospect of tensions melting.


(Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):

Rules are being changed last minute and it’s not ok.  Quote from the handbook chapter and verse.  This gets people to mind their p’s and q’s.


(Sept. 23 – Oct. 22):

Good things come to you courtesy of the Jupiter/Venus square.  The only drawback is sharing the benefits.  Not bad considering what you get.


(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):

Long accustomed to disappointment, it’s hard to wrap your mind around the idea of satisfaction. Go ahead and try.  It’s no sin to be happy.


(Nov. 22 – Dec. 20):

When under siege (like you are nowadays), it’s best to fall back on bonhomie.  Putting people at ease beats pulling up the drawbridge.


(Dec. 21 – Jan. 19):

You hate feeling like you have to keep someone’s interest.  This goes for the other person too.  Relax.  You’re both trying too hard.


(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):

Help is on the way, but will take time to arrive.  Hold tight and do the best you can.  You win karma points with each trial you endure.


(Feb. 18 – March 19):

Word reaches you that a misunderstanding is just that.  Life is still simpatico.  It takes more than crossed-wires to imperil a friendship.
