Daily Horoscopes for Each Sign – Tuesday, August 18, 2020
There could be false leads or poor instructions to deal with today, dear Aries, but keeping a spirit of fun can help. There can be a real opportunity to find creative, original, and new ways of enjoying home life or family. There can be a feeling that you’re breaking from elements of your past that have been binding, and even if it’s only in a small way, it can be satisfying. This may be about decluttering or updating. A change of pace can turn things around in a very positive way. Tonight’s New Moon prompts you to express your feelings and do more creating, romancing, enjoying, and entertaining. There can be opening doors, new beginnings, or restarts along creative or romantic lines in the period ahead.
Today is better for taking stock than for pushing something forward, dear Taurus, although it can still be a creative time. Part of you prefers to stick with the familiar, but moving out of your comfort zone is a draw. Today’s Venus-Uranus sextile encourages fun self-expression and experimentation. Updates and upgrades to your tech or even to your image or appearance can be working well. A small change in your look or surroundings can be very favorable now, lifting your spirits in big ways. A new way of connecting can open up. However, avoid overloading your schedule today. The New Moon tonight brings fresh energy into your life for personal and domestic pursuits. You might consider this lunation a push to reconnect with yourself — to check in with your feelings and comfort levels before pressing forward. A new start with family, home life, or living conditions and arrangements is possible in the week ahead.
Consider today that you may be hitting a brick wall if you move too fast or push too hard, dear Gemini. It’s better to wind down than it is to wind yourself up. Still, you can be quite attracted to new things and situations, and practical solutions arrived at now are inventive, or can involve seeking out hidden or previously unknown sources. Your intuition is sharp for what you need to let go so that you can make room for the good stuff, and this can be on material or psychological levels. Tonight’s New Moon motivates you to make valuable, happy connections and contacts, improve your skills, and come up with new ideas. You might begin a new course, writing project, or make a new friend in the week ahead. For now, think about your goals and resolutions.
Today’s energies are stop-and-go, dear Cancer. It may be best to seek strategies to deal with your responsibilities so that they don’t creep into your life and undermine you when you least expect them. However, you have an encouraging transit occurring as well, and it helps boost your connections. There can be some positive attention coming your way, and it can be a breath of fresh air. Interactions with friends or networks can be enjoyable diversions. Your unique qualities are subtly enhanced or more noticeable. The New Moon tonight sets the stage for new beginnings in the week ahead. You’ll be approaching your finances from a new, refreshed perspective. It’s a good time for money-making ideas or new and improved ways to handle money and possessions. It’s also a good time for getting down to brass tacks when it comes to planning and dealing with your practical affairs. You might make some resolutions related to business, finances, and boosting your sense of security. If you’re looking to earn more, you might feel motivated to seek new channels this week.
Concerns related to routines, work, or health can nag at you in spots today, dear Leo, making firm decisions difficult. It can be hard to pursue personal plans wholeheartedly if you’re distracted or feeling behind or guilty. However, a Venus-Uranus raises the mood and encourages forward-looking energy. You’re especially appreciative of the private or hidden elements in situations today. There could be an opportunity to understand someone, or your feelings, on a spiritual level. Tonight’s New Moon occurs in your sign, pointing to a personal new beginning or a sense that you have a new lease on life. In the coming days, you feel more power to make changes and steer your life where you want it to go. You might subtly change the way you greet the world if this can benefit you. You are more noticeable and dynamic than usual, and people appreciate you, often turning you for your input. Communications or mental pursuits and interests can be part of your fresh start.
You require extra time to yourself away from scrutiny today, dear Virgo, but this may not work out fully. While transits seem to favor a low-profile approach to your life these days, responsibilities loom, and you may need to make a presentation or otherwise present yourself. In truth, you may need to handle a few things and make some adjustments based on a new assessment of time and energy, and this will benefit you in the long run. A Venus-Uranus influence helps you loosen up, enjoy yourself, and try new things. Interesting people and ideas can figure strongly. You’re likely to find great pleasure in learning, sharing, and connecting. It’s a time for feeling freer and happier as your knowledge of the world around you grows. Tonight’s New Moon inspires a strong need for rest and replenishment. Spiritual needs and mental health are priorities.
Transits tend to encourage you to try on new methods and enjoy a rather detached, lighthearted approach to life these days, dear Libra. Today, transits seem to highlight inner conflicts, and self-doubts may undermine your interactions or guilt about your responsibilities to home or family can throw a wrench in your plans today. Look for compromises, and do the necessary maintenance now. Helping out in the mood department is a Venus-Uranus transit. Someone might support, sponsor, or otherwise endorse you. You might flirt with new ideas, concepts, and activities or ways of relating. Freeing yourself from self-limiting beliefs of what you can or cannot do helps you present the best version of yourself. Tonight’s New Moon ushers in new energy or a fresh start with a friendship. New goals, dreams, and plans to look forward to and enjoy can emerge in the week ahead. You see your contributions or place with others in a new light. You might discover a new interest or project that’s dear to your heart. It can help reinvigorate your social life and communications, or your feeling of connectedness with others and hopes for the future.
Technical problems can temporarily delay a project or plan, dear Scorpio. You may need to do further work or handle some details before getting back on it. Insecurities about your performance, meeting responsibilities, and your ideas and communications can be activated in spots today. These may undermine your confidence in your work or even with the general direction your life is taking. However, you also benefit from an influence that lightens your mood and opens your mind to new possibilities. Openness to new ways of interacting and relating, in particular, can be in focus. A refreshing change of pace can lift your spirits. Sharing ideas, philosophies, and beliefs can be mind-expanding and pleasant, and so can doing something offbeat or outside of the usual routine. Tonight’s New Moon stimulates forward-looking, take-charge energy, especially for your professional or public life. There may be new responsibilities, recognition, or a new position or project on the horizon. There can be the need to follow the rules or straighten out an area of your life.
The day’s energies are mixed, but forward-looking, dear Sagittarius. You could be feeling torn between playing things safe or going out on a limb. You might also be feeling a pinch on a financial level. While energy levels could indeed suffer from indecision, fortunately, you have a Venus-Uranus transit opening up opportunities. There can be a pleasant surprise that throws you off guard in a happy way. Tonight’s New Moon serves as a pleasant, gently motivating influence. Unusual activities or those that take you out of your routine can be particularly beneficial in the week ahead. Publishing, sharing ideas, and learning new things can be particularly favorable, leading to new beginnings and a breath of fresh air. People are drawn to you, and you’re presenting your ideas and thoughts particularly well.
There can be some struggle with a decision today, dear Capricorn, but it may be better to wait and see. You may be unsure about how to proceed in a matter, and weighing your options doesn’t necessarily resolve matters. Minor problems and hiccups can be good indicators of issues that may one day get out of hand if you don’t pay some attention now. A Venus-Uranus transit boosts your mood, however. Relationships seem to be the key to personal enjoyment, and a particular connection that needs boosting or a breath of new life may improve or reach a new level. Old ways of relating don’t serve a useful purpose anymore, and today you see that it’s best to leave those habits behind you. Tonight’s New Moon might open doors to you for following a passion in the week ahead. It can stir up a keen interest in learning about your needs, motivations, and deeper desires, and empower you to make significant lifestyle or psychological changes.
There can be some matters to clear up from your past or in your mind today, dear Aquarius. Escaping things can keep you in a rut, and problems may very well multiply going forward. Today’s good for putting something behind you. Fortunately, a Venus-Uranus influence helps pull you out of a relating rut. You’re ready to embrace change if it promises growth and improvement. You can be in the mood to experiment with routines, living arrangements, and methods. You might want to update, upgrade, or adapt to keep things fresh. Tonight’s New Moon can set the stage for a significant restart, new start, or new beginning in the relationship department. The week ahead can be a time for enhancing a relationship, striking up a deal, negotiating, and connecting. You might come to meaningful conclusions about your relationship needs.
Today’s energies are mixed, dear Pisces. You may be feeling a little out of sync with a friend, goal, or dream, or you could discover that worries about a social matter interfere with your productivity. You may need to restructure or cut back on a plan or project to make it work better for you. On the other hand, you can feel hopeful in other areas. With a Venus-Uranus transit, there can be a pleasant focus on improvement, updates, and upgrades. This can involve material things, but it can also be about attitudes, ideas, perspectives, and experiences. You may make a break from a bad situation, or you’re ready to embrace change, progress, and innovation. Tonight’s New Moon brings take-charge, forward-looking energy to work, service, health, and habits. It sets the stage for new beginnings or a fresh approach in these areas. You can be highly motivated to launch new work projects and personal health or fitness programs in the week ahead. The desire to take better care of yourself or to do your personal best can increase.
