Astrological Forecasts for 08/16/2014

Aries (March 21-April 19): Today is a 7 -- Obstacles arise in unexpected places. You could lose a lot. Play by the rules. Get a boost from a friend. Don't worry, you'll think of something. Take care now. Slow down and get dreamy.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): Today is an 8 -- New challenges test old skills. Maintain objectivity. A partner can help. Consider all options and consequences. Benefit from someone else's fantasy. Don't touch your savings. Get out on the town and play.

Gemini (May 21-June 20): Today is a 7 -- Imagine new strategies. Value what you already have. Work on the foundation of your plan. Travel flows easier now, but do you have the energy? Leisure and introspection can be very nice.

Cancer (June 21-July 22): Today is a 6 -- Take it slow and hang out with friends. Chaos and obstacles could plague a journey or effort. Either tough it out or postpone and get some rest instead. Take small, practical steps.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Today is a 6 -- If the first idea doesn't work, come up with something else. Family comes first. Compile comprehensive reports. A partner completes the plans. Logic wins over emotion. A touch of mystery doesn't hurt.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Today is a 7 -- Edit and organize before announcing a change in direction. Choose private over public. Don't over-extend. All is not as it appears to be, and jealousies could arise between siblings. Accept love as offered.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Today is a 6 -- You can afford to be gracious. Persuade a grump with treats. Don't over-extend... rest and relaxation with friends suits you fine. Talk about dreams, and get ideas. Stay flexible despite chaos. Unwind.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Today is a 7 -- Take a long view with a partnership. Rules can be bent, but don't break them. Avoid provoking jealousies. Work out a deceptive issue. Keep your word, and stay in communication. Honorable actions win respect.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Today is an 8 -- Don't get carried away. Work and travel could get turbulent today. Watch for hidden agendas. Postpone expansion. Talk about dreams with an older person, for a more experienced view. Take care of your health.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Today is a 6 -- Confusion, jealousies or roadblocks could slow progress. Wait on big decisions, launches or to sign papers. Give in to fun, make-believe and mystery. Play games, or have a costume party. Get inspired by fantasies.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Today is a 5 -- The previously impossible starts to seem do-able (especially at home). Be respectful, yet strong-willed. Stay out of the line of fire. You won't like some of the answers. Follow your dream anyway.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Today is a 6 -- Sort out facts before acting. Unplug, when daunted by haywire communications. Don't spend what you don't have. Listen for divine inspiration (and find it in nature). Avoid a wild goose chase, by staying home.
