FRIDAY AUGUST 10, 2018

ARIES March 21-April 20 ***

Get mundane, practical tasks out of the way early because, as the day progresses, Rams will feel increasingly restless. So find a challenging project you can channel your energy into.

TAURUS April 21-May 21 **

A close relationship could hit a roadblock today. Don’t assume you know what others are thinking. Make sure you listen carefully and ask relevant questions, otherwise there’ll be problems.

GEMINI May 22-June 21 ***

A child, teenager or close friend will test your limited patience today. Resist the urge to blurt out the first thing on your mind – it won’t help the situation. Instead, think before you speak.

CANCER June 22-July 23 **

When it comes to a close relationship or a joint venture, it’s one step forwards and two steps back. The best way to handle the situation is with patience, perseverance and plenty of good humour.

LEO July 24-Aug 23 ***

When it comes to a work issue or a financial matter, clever Cats will be super cautious today. Do plenty of preparation before you pounce. If you act in haste, then you’ll just regret it later on.

VIRGO Aug 24-Sep 23 ***

A relationship with a child, teenager, lover or close friend could be rather stressful today. So tread gingerly and refrain from offering criticism … no matter how ‘constructive’ you think it is!

LIBRA Sep 24-Oct 23 **

If you are having personal problems, don’t assume others will come running to the rescue today. It’s time to be an independent Libran, as the planets push you to be more self-reliant.

SCORPIO Oct 24-Nov 22 ***

Make it a priority to nurture yourself today, via some physical pampering or the luxury of spending quality time with a very special person – you. Solitude is essential for you at the moment.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 23-Dec 21 ***

Don’t let the fear of not having enough resources stop you from doing something you really want to do. A disciplined approach helps transform the financial picture, but it will take plenty of patience.

CAPRICORN Dec 22-Jan 20 ***

Are the bills piling up and have you got heaps of unanswered messages? With Mercury and Mars still retrograde, it’s time to catch up on communication and clear up financial paperwork.

AQUARIUS Jan 21-Feb 19 **

A joint venture or group project looks tricky at the moment. Retrograde Mercury is scrambling communication and people seem to be on different pages. So make sure you double-check all details.

PISCES Feb 20-March 20 ***

If you are organised and focused today, then you can move mountains and catch up on unfinished business. If not, then you’ll just daydream the hours away. So strive to keep it real Pisces!

YOUR DAY

Don’t expect people to be overly affectionate today.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

You are attractive and lots of fun to be around. The next 12 months is the time to be less needy and more generous with others.
