March 21 - April 20
Today's Horoscope for Sunday August 25th
There is plenty of fun and laughter around you at the moment. You appreciate your own ideas and like listeners to be appreciative as well. Just don't embroider the facts to make a good story. Other people may not pick up every word you say, but they certainly understand that your heart's in the right place. You seem to be giving of yourself in a way that others can really tune into at an emotional level, which is extremely positive.
The Weekly Outlook from 19th August
Into a hard-working few weeks there will be moments when you feel you are not getting the ego boosts or recognition you deserve for your labours, but crack on anyway. Your moment will come. If you are on the lookout you could find romance springs up around your everyday chores. Even if that doesn't happen you will still find you gain great comfort from doing your job. You will take pleasure in being meticulous and conscientious and doing things with care.
Your Monthly Horoscope for August
Playful, entertaining, joyful and confident, you'll be on great form as a Leo new Moon opens the month in your chart area of romance and fun. Clearly work and duty won't be high on your priority list. You will sparkle in the spotlight of attention from loved ones, children and social mates and feel free to express your wishes, knowing they're likely to be fulfilled. Expansive and fortunate Jupiter will boost your morale further towards the 7th. There'll be little to dent your sense of humour or shake your affectionate mood. And your mischievous way with words will keep those close in high spirits as well. But life can't be all roses and singing and after the 18th hard work is inevitable. You'll be knuckling down to cope with an increasing pile of chores and will need to organise a sensible routine. Keeping your stamina high will also be crucial. Perseverance will bring results where cash is concerned as long as you curb your more impulsive tendencies.
and Next Month's Horoscope for September
Settling down to a hard-working few weeks will be unavoidable with four planets in practical, earthy, meticulous Virgo. You will be nose to the grindstone and not always feeling appreciated for the effort you put in but if you take pride in what you do for its own sake that should be reward enough. Looking after health, fitness and stamina will clearly be important if you are being stretched energy-wise. There will be moments when your enthusiasm runs away with you and you over commit yourself or promise more than you can deliver. But by mid-month you'll be pleased to have pulled so many loose ends together and be on top of most important chores. Into the final week you'll find support on offer from a close partner and there'll be more opportunities to be out and about socialising. Your popularity will soar and your nearest and dearest will be affectionate.
Year Ahead 2019
You'll be pushing extra hard as the New Year opens, determined to make your mark and to get your talents recognised. There'll be obstacles to overcome, requiring self-discipline and perseverance. Letting self-doubt slow you down won't be helpful and luckily Jupiter in Sagittarius will keep your enthusiasm from flagging. And what will give your efforts an additional nudge is your feeling that it's now or never for success. That isn't true but the motivation will help you to make progress in sticky times. The early Lunar Eclipse will also nudge you to remember that fun and friends are important as well as achieving your goals. Your fiery go-ahead, act-first and think-second approach won't always be ideal so you'll need to pace yourself and take your responsibilities seriously. That way you'll gain the respect of those whose judgement you trust. Your financial situation will be changing with some ups and downs but that's not necessarily a disaster, since there'll be luck as well as extra outgoings at times. You just need to budget well and save when there's surplus. From mid year you'll slow down and put home and family matters up as your priority. Changes will be on your mind both literally in terms of reorganisation and also as you contemplate what emotional adjustments are needed for peace, harmony and satisfaction ahead. Speak frankly and tactfully and listen carefully and you'll reach agreements which are fair to all. Distractions at work and from your community activities will get in the way so listening to your heart, not your head will be important. August will be a social feast with fun, romance and enjoyment on offer as loved ones rally round to shower you with attention. Close relationships will hit a strained phase in October and November which can be overcome if you bite your tongue and say less. A confident, lucky and successful few months kicks off in December to allow you to sweep away any lurking concerns.
