Daily horoscopes: August 18, 2016


(March 20 – April 19):

Did something come too easily? No. You’re just accustomed to struggle. Bask in the glow of victory. You’ll be back to the grindstone soon enough.


(April 20 – May 20):

You secure a long sought victory thanks to the Full Moon, but be careful. It’s possible that you’re being given something that’s less than your worth.


(May 21 – June 20):

Someone who dissed you before wants you back. Do you really think this person has changed? Curiosity impels you to check into the reason why.


(June 21 – July 21):

The Full Moon in Aquarius shows the turbulence is over for now. But keep your seatbelt fastened just in case. You never know when the ride will get bumpy again.


(July 22 – Aug. 22):

Someone else gets the last word and you’re not too happy about that. But whatever you do, don’t reopen the subject. Leave it be for now.


(Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):

An apology won’t help and an excuse won’t be believed. Move on. There’s nothing to be gained by trying to appease someone who won’t be appeased.


(Sept. 23 – Oct. 22):

Usually you’re a team player, but you don’t like where a project or venture is going. Make a conscientious objection.


(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):

You want to keep your cool. It shows control and more importantly: status. The fact you won’t sink to others’ level makes them rise to yours.


(Nov. 22 – Dec. 20):

Before telling a colleague to get over it, make sure you’re not projecting impatience with yourself on to someone else.


(Dec. 21 – Jan. 19):

Once again you’re cutting ties with a venture that didn’t work out. Remember: options that don’t do anything aren’t options.


(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):

There’s nothing wrong with being a little territorial these days. You fought long and hard for the high ground and now you need to own it.


(Feb. 18 – March 19):

A colleague challenges your authority. Don’t answer. After all – that’s the clearest proof of who’s in charge.
