MONDAY AUGUST 12, 2019
ARIES March 21-April 20 ***
You love talking about grand plans and ambitious schemes, but it’s time to walk your talk and work hard. Idle chatter is out; whereas getting your hands dirty – and some sweat on your brow – is in.
TAURUS April 21-May 21 ***
Your greatest asset is your Taurean tenacity, so make sure you use it to your advantage today. But remember there’s a very fine line between being persistent and just being plain stubborn!
GEMINI May 22-June 21 ***
Today’s stars highlight all types of communication, as you converse and collaborate with a wide range of interesting people. Make your dreams for the future imaginative and realistic.
CANCER June 22-July 23 ***
You’ll be able to communicate more comfortably as the day progresses. It’s also time to join forces with a family member, as you combine talents to find a practical solution to a persistent problem.
LEO July 24-Aug 23 ***
With Venus visiting your sign, comfort eating is a danger at the moment so try to employ some restraint. Nurture yourself in other ways – perhaps via a relaxing massage or a walk in nature.
VIRGO Aug 24-Sep 23 ****
Inspiration for the day is from fellow Virgo, actor Jeremy Irons. “We all have our Time Machines. Some take us back, they’re called memories. Some take us forward, they’re called dreams.”
LIBRA Sep 24-Oct 23 ***
With the Moon moving through your domestic zone, put aside some time to nurture home and hearth today. Plus give a family member the time and attention they have been asking for.
SCORPIO Oct 24-Nov 22 ***
Spend quality time with a good friend who supports your goals for the future. But don’t believe everything that a relative or neighbour tells you today. They may be way off the mark.
SAGITTARIUS Nov 23-Dec 21 ***
Don’t be in such a rush today Sagittarius! Money matters are favoured – as long as you are realistic and patient in your approach to financial planning. Slow and steady wins the race.
CAPRICORN Dec 22-Jan 20 ***
You’ve got a lot of extra responsibilities but it’s nothing you can’t handle. Group projects and further education are favoured today, as you strive to be the best Capricorn you can be.
AQUARIUS Jan 21-Feb 19 ***
Aquarians can be controversial and contrary. With Venus visiting your relationship zone, it’s time to be much more cooperative and more tolerant of the conventional views of others.
PISCES Feb 20-March 20 **
Don’t get too carried away with abstract concepts today Pisces. Take your pie-in-the-sky dreams and bring them down to earth. When it comes to relationships, clear communication is the key.
The Capricorn Moon favours tackling practical projects at home and work.
You love to give advice to family, friends and colleagues. Over the next 12 months, slow down and be more reflective and focused about your future direction.
