March 21 - April 20
Today's Horoscope for Friday August 17th
No one will miss your presence for the next few days as you put on quite a show of wit. There is plenty of fun and laughter around you now. You appreciate your own ideas, and like listeners to be appreciative as well. Just don't exaggerate too much to make an effect or embroider the facts to make a good story. Slowly but surely you're putting beneficial changes in place. Your intimate relationships are improving as a result.
The Weekly Outlook from 13th August
This week with Mars crossing your midheaven you will want to work to achieve your ambitions. You'll find later in the week that there are times when making a determined push is the right approach. Then there are other times when doing nothing at all seemingly ends you up in the right place at the right time, saying the right thing to the right people without making too much of an effort. Sod's law, but pleasant when it happens all the same.
Your Monthly Horoscope for August
You'll throw caution to the winds and decide to go all out for fun, pleasure and enjoyment. This is your time to sparkle in the spotlight, be surrounded by loved one's attention and certainly not hiding away in a corner. Any time you feel you're not getting the appreciation or affection you'd like the answer is to give more. Hand out kisses, hugs and compliments and more will come back to you. Not just for this month but for a while ahead. A sudden surprise on the cash front early on may lead to a hasty decision or even an argument with a friend. Cool it and look before you leap into decisions or commitments. Your luck should hold but try not to take others' generosity or indeed your good fortune for granted. From mid month you'll be pushing ambitiously ahead, issuing orders and expecting those around to dance to your tune and move at your speed. You'll settle onto a productive, if not very glamorous few weeks in the final days, getting on with necessary chores and looking after your health.
