See what the stars have in store for you today.

THURSDAY AUGUST 9, 2018  

ARIES March 21-April 20 **

If you jump to conclusions or make hasty assumptions, then you could find yourself in a complicated mess. So take the time to check the facts thoroughly before you speak up or make a big move.

TAURUS April 21-May 21 ***

There are plenty of things to discuss, especially with family and friends. But make sure you are shouldering your share of the domestic chores, otherwise housemates will voice their displeasure.

GEMINI May 22-June 21 **

You’ll feel restless today, as the Sun links up with your patron planet Mercury, which is retrograde. Resist the urge to scatter your energy all over the place. Instead, focus on what’s really important.

CANCER June 22-July 23 **

With the Sun and retrograde Mercury linking up in your money zone, the urge to splurge is hard to control at the moment. Just remember - what catches your eye today may not interest you tomorrow!

LEO July 24-Aug 23 ***

The Sun and retrograde Mercury pair up in your sign. So it’s a suitable time to recalibrate a personal project; review a complex situation; revise old information or repair something that’s broken.

VIRGO Aug 24-Sep 23 ***

Under the influence of the Sun and retrograde Mercury, strive to be observant and vigilant today Virgo. It’s a good time to plough through paperwork, research projects or tie up loose-ends.

LIBRA Sep 24-Oct 23 **

If a platonic or romantic relationship isn’t going well, then it’s up to you to take steps to improve it. Which may involve revisiting unresolved problems, but that’s what is required at the moment.

SCORPIO Oct 24-Nov 22 **

Are you feeling frustrated? If you’re working on a project, make sure you do your homework thoroughly and talk things through carefully. But don’t scare others away by being too full-on.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 23-Dec 21 ***

You’re in a generous mood today but don’t promise more than you can actually deliver. Talk is cheap! So make sure you walk your talk and then follow through with decisive action.

CAPRICORN Dec 22-Jan 20 ***

It’s a good day to have a deep and meaningful conversation with a loved one. Listen closely! And make sure that what they say is actually what you hear, otherwise misunderstandings are likely.

AQUARIUS Jan 21-Feb 19 **

A close relationship will be confusing, as the Sun and retro Mercury link up in your partnership zone. Don’t do all the talking. Instead, be observant and listen closely to what they have to say.

PISCES Feb 20-March 20 ***

Have you been neglecting your wellbeing? Today’s stars remind you to focus on your health and fitness, as you review the best ways to eat more nutritiously and exercise more regularly.

YOUR DAY

Be observant and check facts thoroughly today.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Strong and thoughtful, you have the ability to inspire others. The next 12 months is the time to be less controlling in relationships. And listen more!
