October 23 - November 22
Today's Horoscope for Wednesday August 12th
You'll be facing up to difficulties since you know this tricky phase of your life is helping to shake you loose from elements of the past that were weighing you down. Companions will be open to hearing what you have to say though you'll have to watch a tendency to be self-righteous or dogmatic in discussions. It's not so much what you say as the way you are saying it. Lighten up. And you could also be not waiting for the right time. There is no sense in forcing companions into agreement instantly.
The Weekly Outlook from 10th August
This is not the time to be frivolous or scattered. But it may help if you keep your sense of humour handy. Your words will carry weight so you will be respected for your wisdom and the depth of your understanding. But you will need to sort out new ways of getting your message across at work and a more efficient way of organising your daily schedules. Try to steer clear of tricky or control freak companions since they'll irritate you more than usual. Don't feel selfish.
Your Monthly Horoscope for August
There may be distractions at home but you know you can't afford to take your eye off the ball at work and in your community activities. Pushing your ambitions ahead will be the priority. You are in the high profile three weeks of the year so you'll need to flaunt your talents and ensure the right people know what you are capable of achieving. Even with loved ones you'll be taking the lead and showing them the way. Much in demand for your views you'll be the one the influential people turn to when they want information or a sensible assessment. Your social life will be light-hearted, adventurous and stimulating. But you'll need to watch and pace yourself since you'll be inclined to take on board too many commitments and won't delegate as well as you might. Try not to be perfectionist especially towards mid month when chores will pile up and progress will be frustratingly slow. Not leaping in with hasty critical comments will help smooth relations around you. Into the final ten days you'll be into a friendly, forward looking few weeks and won't be short of good company or support. Travel carefully since you could be slightly accident prone.
and Next Month's Horoscope for September
Looking ahead, you'll be sorting out which ambitions need to be put up as priorities and then you'll settle down to getting the practicalities in hand. You'll know it's not the time for grand plans and wild schemes, you need a workable stratyegy which you can sensibly expect to bring results. Your confidence in putting your views across will help, as will the force of your personality. No one will think you're indecisive or a pushover when it comes to discussions. Friends and team mates will rally round and you'll make faster progress in group activities than you would flying solo. Out at special occasions you'll be keeping up appearances and putting on quite a performance, charming all the right people. Just have a care to stay close to what you feel inside. There may be arguments along the way since you'll insist that your way is best with tasks but being perfectionist may cause irritation and you'll get landed with everything to do yourself. Into the final week, you'll sigh with relief and step back, into a quieter few weeks with more chances to put your feet up.
Year Ahead 2020
2020 will be all about communication for you in an everyday schedule that will be challenging and pressured at times. You'll be inclined to take certain situations or comments to heart, looking for a hidden significance in everything. And being tempted to withdraw if your opinions don't meet with agreement. But it would be a mistake. Listen to feedback and where necessary alter your approach. Try, try, try again should be your motto and you will eventually get your message across. Gradually you'll notice a growing sense of confidence in speaking your mind and because you'll be tolerant and less blinkered, you will be respected for your views. And you'll begin to realise that what was holding you back wasn't bad luck but too limited an attitude on your side.rnYou will want more elbow room in close partnerships with each of you happy to allow the other to go their own individual way. It will mean that co-operation won't always be easy since it'll demand compromise. At home you'll be putting in effort after March to sort out practical problems and also to address any family tensions which emerge. If you go about it tactfully then you can clear old resentments out of the way once and for all. Though it won't always be easy to stay calm.rnFrom July onwards you'll be working exceptionally hard and staying on top of detail. You will tend to be a perfectionist, assuming you're the only one who can do tasks well, which means you'll land yourself with too many commitments. Looking after fitness and stamina will be important. And being cautious, since you could be slightly accident prone at times if you over burden yourself or get impatient with mistakes and end up tripping over your feet.rnTowards the year end you'll focus on your finances since being pro-active will bring results and be aiming for a calmer phase on the home front.
