Daily horoscopes: August 17, 2018


(March 20 – April 19):

Something you thought would take longer to come together is suddenly ready to go.  You can’t say no so clear your schedule ASAP.


(April 20 – May 20):

Try all you can, but you won’t change a loved one’s mind.  He needs to make mistakes in order to learn from them. Experience is the best teacher.


(May 21 – June 20):

Recent life-changing experiences have added depth and dimension to you.  Not everyone will appreciate this.  Their loss; not yours.


(June 21 – July 21):

Things have probably never been more uncertain, but you’re clearly at the top of your game.  Playing for keeps makes all the difference.


(July 22 – Aug. 22):

Could a predicament possibly get any worse?  It’s best not to ask while the Moon is in Scorpio.  You might not like the answer.


(Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):

Stop nudging.  That person in charge isn’t going to budge now and further queries will only irritate him. Move on to something else.


(Sept. 23 – Oct. 22):

There’s no way you’ll get someone to come on board, but you can work the people around him.  It’s a little something called influence.


(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):

It’s up to you to bring light rather than heat to the situation. People push and provoke.  Transcend it and you win trust and respect.


(Nov. 22 – Dec. 20):

There’s nothing wrong with throwing a tantrum as long as it’s done out of earshot. Everyone’s nerves are fried.  You don’t want to start a domino effect.


(Dec. 21 – Jan. 19):

You can see all the possibilities, but can’t make sense of them. This is good.  Thinking outside the box means getting past familiar assumptions.


(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):

Don’t back down to adversity.  Superiority comes from simply standing your ground.  Rivals don’t share your courage and will yield the field.


(Feb. 18 – March 19):

Pare down expectations because what looked doable now seems unlikely. Settle for half of what you’re asking for and you’ll get it.
