Horoscope: Know you Aug 15


ARIES (March 21 – April 20):

The Sun in Leo encourages you to be adventurous and today’s new moon will also inspire you to start something new. However, other aspects warn you must make sure that you have prepared the ground thoroughly. Leave nothing to chance.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):

You may be a bit irritable with certain people, and no doubt with good reason, but try not to let it get to you. Forget about the little things and focus on the bigger picture. Petty people and petty annoyances are not worth the time or the effort.

GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):

Today’s new moon will make it easy for you to get your point of view across. However, with major planets moving retrograde at the moment you would be wise to spell things out as simply as possible. Not everyone sees as clearly as you.

CANCER (June 22 – July 23):

Where money matters and business issues are concerned it is essential that you meet others halfway. Also, don’t think you can promise something today and wriggle out of it tomorrow: if you fail to deliver your reputation will head south fast.

LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):

Today’s new moon in your sign means you are able to see things clearly and communicate your ideas effectively. But that does not mean you can take everything others tell you at face value. You may be honest but can you be sure they are too?

VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):

You may feel a bit downbeat at the moment but it’s quite natural for you at this time of year. With so much cosmic activity in the most sensitive area of your chart it would be surprising if you were the life and soul of every party.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):

The only reason you fear something is because you don’t understand it. Today’s new moon will help you to overcome your fear by finding out more about what is causing you so much anxiety. As they say: the only thing to fear is fear itself.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):

A new moon in the career area of your chart will make you even more ambitious than you have been of late. However, before you make any major moves you would be wise to check facts and figures thoroughly. Not everyone can be trusted.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):

Any doubts you may have had about what you should be doing with your life will disappear today. At last you know which road you should be following. At last you know how to make your life both more secure and more exciting.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):

There may be no end of interesting things going on in the world but you must block each and every one of them from your mind today and focus on the one thing that means something to you. Everything else is a distraction.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):

Partners and colleagues seem determined to focus on your bad points rather than your good points but you must not let it provoke you. Chances are they want to start a fight because they think it will benefit them. You don’t have to play that game.

PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):

You know what you want to do, so why are you still holding back? Most likely it’s because you fear you may upset people whose support you have always depended on in the past. The simple fact is you no longer need them.
