Horoscope - Aug 28 2016
(Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Although everything seems to slow down a bit on the outside, you’re still running through a maze on the inside. You long for less drama today, but could end up internalizing the conflicts rather than preventing them. Thankfully, there are no boundaries to what you may contemplate if you keep everything to yourself. But don’t expect your silence to go unnoticed. Unfortunately, what you don’t say encourages others to make up their own version of your reality, which might wildly deviate from the truth. As Deepak Chopra writes, “Awareness brings freedom.”
(Apr 20 – May 20)
A straightforward approach to communicating your feelings can reduce the pressure in a relationship. You might be so sensitive about your point of view today that you talk as if you’re walking on eggshells. Unfortunately, your caution causes others to think you’re hiding something significant. It’s not that your message should be altered to change the meaning, only that your delivery could make a big difference in what people hear. Don’t beat around the bush; say exactly what you mean and let the conversation take flight from there.
(May 21 – Jun 20)
Your deeply ingrained values come to light today if you witness a social injustice or misuse of power. Although you typically can see both sides of an argument, you’re likely to favor the underdog in most cases. However, be aware there is an arbitrariness to your opinion now, whatever position you choose. You might be better off being the champion of communication, rather than supporting any single point of view. The truth is out there, but it’s not as simple to find as it seems at first. Let your moral compass be your guide.
(Jun 21 – Jul 22)
You’re not interested in shaking up the world with your radical ideas today. You prefer to explore all the unlikely possibilities and impossible futures within the safety of your own mind. But this secrecy isn’t about uncertainty or low self-esteem; it’s about your pragmatic approach to making a lasting impact instead of a short-lived blip on someone’s radar screen. There’s no need to waste your energy defending your thoughts on social or personal issues. As Robert Louis Stevenson wrote, “Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.”
(Jul 23 – Aug 22)
You are operating in stealth mode as you go about your business of creating something special. You intuitively know it’s more important now for you to get it right than it is to be seen on the world stage. Thankfully, your current intentions exude the authority of Saturn and they will ultimately earn you the recognition you seek. Respect is for those who deserve it, not for those who demand it. Speak softly and carry a big stick.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
You can be so discerning in your quest for perfection that others criticize your pickiness. But you could surprise your friends today with the inconsistency of your actions. One moment, they think you are withholding your negative judgment, ready to list the reasons why you refuse their invitation to collaborate on a project. However, you could shock them when you say yes, especially if you take their idea and then expand on it. Albert Einstein said, “Creativity is intelligence having fun.”
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
You may appear disengaged and disinterested today, but you’re really exerting more control than anyone realizes. One of your greatest skills is being able to listen to what others want and then motivate them to realize their dreams. However, you have your own agenda now and won’t let someone else’s plans take precedence. Nevertheless, it doesn’t look like you’re pulling the strings because you know when to remain quiet and divert the attention elsewhere. Hiding in plain sight can be oddly satisfying, especially when everything just seems to fall your way.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Your friends are your lifeline to the future now as they reflect your dreams back to you with their love and encouragement. Naturally, spending time in such a supportive community does your soul good, especially when you share values at such a fundamental level. Fortunately, there’s nothing you must do in this immediate moment, other than showing up with an open mind. Today is meant for contemplation, not action. A grateful heart is a magnet for miracles.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
The secret to your success is setting your specific goals down on paper now. Although energetic Mars is empowering your exuberant sign, taskmaster Saturn is not ready to let you off the hook. Don’t take your eyes off the distant horizon, but you must simultaneously reassess your plans for the next few weeks. The more you can accomplish now, the easier it will be later on. Literary giant Samuel Johnson wrote, “The future is purchased by the present.”
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Sunday is a day of rest for many, but you might see it an opportunity to fine-tune your plans so you can gain a strategic advantage. Unfortunately, everything will take longer than you think, so don’t set yourself up for failure or disappointment with exorbitant expectations. Nevertheless, you’re capable of seeing the future possibilities through a very practical lens, enabling you to simplify the steps needed to accomplish your goals. As Zig Ziglar said, “There is no elevator to success; you must take the stairs.”
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
You seek a deeper level of compassion in your relationships, but you prefer to make this connection via intellectual analysis rather than emotional involvement. It’s not that you are detached from your feelings; it’s just you can dig deeper if you approach interpersonal dynamics objectively. Nevertheless, you’re still treading on volatile ground where a cool discussion can quickly grow heated. Keep in mind, a healthy relationship will inspire both parties to be their best selves. Trust your heart today, not your head.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
You might resist if someone is trying to pin down your feelings today. You want to answer their concerns in an honest and caring manner, but find it impossible to squeeze your emotions into words now. Your first inclination is to say nothing at all, but your evasiveness can be even more misleading than any attempt to communicate your truth. Ironically, your self-criticism may be harsher than necessary, so don’t talk yourself into silence. Remember, your initial response is just the opening reply to a volley that will create its own meaning as the conversation continues. Love is a game that everyone wants to win.
