Your Starsign


April 21 - May 20

Today's Horoscope for Wednesday August 12th

Being pushed you into your depths may not be a bundle of laughs but it will help you find facets of yourself you never knew existed. What comes out of this testing time is in the long term going to be helpful, making you wiser and more compassionate. You won't always be tolerant when you get on one of your hobby horses since you do hold strong opinions about certain matters. Try to remember that what is true for you may not necessarily true for someone else. Making an effort to agree to differ and letting others find their own truth will be important.

The Weekly Outlook from 10th August

You may not be able to travel literally as much as you'd like but that doesn't mean your mind can't be going further and wider as you expand your knowledge of the world. People who hold different views will have a powerful influence on your thinking and while initially you may dig in your heels and dismiss their opinions, you'll come to realise they have some right on their side. But you will need to find a balance, being neither too dogmatic nor too na�ve.

Your Monthly Horoscope for August

There won't be much tempting you to race around or be overly pro-active. Tucked away quietly and comfortably at home or in familiar surroundings with the companions who make you feel relaxed, you won't stray far. There may be a surprise event early on but you'll refuse to let it distract you since you've no intention of allowing anyone to interfere with your plans. Which isn't to say that restrictions won't be in place with Mars tucked away in the sign before yours. But you'll be more than happy to accept that patience rather than instant advance is the order of the month. If you can tone down your opinions towards mid-month you won't end up with a stalemate argument. Sidestepping a confrontation will be wise. A lively social life will be on off after the 23rd with chances to kick up your heels and have fun. One plan will hit snags towards the 24 but getting irritable won't help. Keep smiling and it will pass.

and Next Month's Horoscope for September

An earthy Virgo Sun will brighten your spirits and keep your social life swinging along in good style. You'll be inundated with invitations and compliments with plenty of chances to shine in the spotlight. Loved ones will rally round to make you feel appreciated and adored. Your plans will chop and change along with your opinions but gradually you'll begin to see a way ahead with better news coming in from friends a distance away or abroad. Venus, your ruler, moving across your midheaven from the 6th for several weeks will find you putting on quite a performance on special occasions and charming all the right people. Taking time out to settle practical details won't be a problem with Mercury in Libra till late month. Your eagle eye will spot mistakes and find solutions. There will be less time for fun after the 22nd and you'll know you need to put duty before pleasure once more.

Year Ahead 2020

2020 will be your year to revise your outlook, opinions and philosophy of living. Challenges to your mindset may be unsettling initially but if you can keep an open mind and listen to feedback then you'll gradually come to understand which attitudes have passed their sell-by date and need to go. Enlightenment won't come quickly or easily but you'll be given a helping hand along the way and gradually you'll find your old enthusiasm revives as you raise your sights higher.rnYou know this phase of your life marks out a distinct change from what has gone before with Uranus moving through your own sign for another few years. Not normally a rebellious sign or one who is happy with fast-moving change you'll surprise yourself by rocking the boat from time to time and insisting on going your own way no matter the reaction.rnNot that you'll turn into a carefree hippie since hard work and heavier responsibilities will come courtesy of Saturn at your midheaven for a few months from March onwards. There may be setbacks or small mountains to climb in April so you'll grit your teeth on and push harder. From midyear you'll revise your tactics and step back, allowing others to take the driving wheel, while you give subtle hints from the passenger seat.rnHave a care all year when travelling since there will be delays and disruptions throughout which won't make for fast progress. Always keep a plan B up your sleeve for emergencies.rnSpending money on treats and indulgences will be a welcome distraction in the months after April, since you'll be comforted by a few luxuries. But the swing of the eclipses towards your financial houses does indicate that taking the initiative to improve your situation and security will be helpful. Ambling along hoping for the best won't work. Being pro-active and determined to put long overdue changes in place will make all the difference.
