Daily horoscopes: August 19, 2016


(March 20 – April 19):

You’ve been so focused on starting a new chapter in your life that you’ve neglected certain passages. Touch base with old friends.


(April 20 – May 20):

Stop the conversation and back up. The news is more positive than you think – which is why colleagues are startled by your gloomy response.


(May 21 – June 20):

You get another tempting offer today. You might have sworn off money schemes and get rich quick investments, but there’s no law against looking.


(June 21 – July 21):

You will soon face a choice between the familiar and the different. Things that you took for granted show unexpected promise.


(July 22 – Aug. 22):

Touching base with someone who knew you when is uplifting. It brings perspective and reminds you of priorities that got lost in the shuffle.


(Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):

Are you staying with a situation out of stubbornness or loyalty? You yourself may not know. It might be a good idea to discuss this with a trusted confidant.


(Sept. 23 – Oct. 22):

Watch it. Someone who said s/he would be there for you may have second thoughts. Put out feelers now so you’re not left hanging.


(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):

You may have to accept a reduction in pay or a lowering of status in order to move forward. Do it. Making progress is what’s important.


(Nov. 22 – Dec. 20):

Instead of struggling with an obstacle, see what happens when you work with it. Problems have a way of containing their own solutions.


(Dec. 21 – Jan. 19):

Is it really important that everyone agree? It’s not a disaster if they don’t. Conflicting views broadens horizons that have narrowed lately.


(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):

You prefer to be proactive and to handle problems beforehand, but with things changing from day to day, it’s best to let events unfold on their own.


(Feb. 18 – March 19):

Are you psychic? Maybe. In any case, that educated guess of yours will be the talk of the office for weeks to come.
