FRIDAY August 16, 2019

ARIES March 21-April 20 **

Impulsive words or sudden actions could land you in a heap of hot water today, especially involving finances or friends. So calm down and cool down Rams, before you blow a fuse!

TAURUS April 21-May 21 **

You think you know how a family member is feeling but jumping to conclusions – without checking the facts first – is a recipe for trouble today Taurus. Take the time to really talk things through.

GEMINI May 22-June 21 **

A relationship with a relative or neighbour could flare up, as responsibilities overtake having fun. If you keep the lines of communication open, then the storm in a tea cup will soon blow over.

CANCER June 22-July 23 **

A loved one may try to push your emotional buttons today but avoid retaliating with rash words or hurtful comments. You can’t control what others say but you can control your reaction!

LEO July 24-Aug 23 **

Cats are feeling rash! Making a snappy decision seems like a good idea but it could lead to unexpected consequences. Impulsive actions could also lead to an argument or accident so pace yourself.

VIRGO Aug 24-Sep 23 **

Pencil in some time in your busy schedule to be on your own, for some reflective R & R. If you run around on auto-pilot, then you’re more likely to make thoughtless remarks and careless slip-ups.

LIBRA Sep 24-Oct 23 **

Your nifty Libran negotiation skills are required today, as loved ones indulge in family feuds or close friends get caught up in silly squabbles. A touch of diplomacy will see you through!

SCORPIO Oct 24-Nov 22 **

Finding fault with others won’t win you any friends or favours today. Colleagues and loved ones are feeling particularly touchy, so avoid offering criticism – no matter how ‘constructive’ it is.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 23-Dec 21 ***

Expect a hectic day where you’re running around all over the place. But are you actually achieving anything? If you pace yourself – and prioritise – then you’ll accomplish a lot more.

CAPRICORN Dec 22-Jan 20 **

Avoid getting drawn into arguments or misunderstandings over money today. Plus postpone creative projects for another day, as it will be difficult to connect with your inner artistic muse.

AQUARIUS Jan 21-Feb 19 **

There’s impulsive and erratic energy about, as the planets stir up your emotions. If you don’t slow down then you could blurt out things that you later regret. So pace yourself Aquarius.

PISCES Feb 20-March 20 ***

Place your own issues on the backburner today Pisces. Putting others first works wonders, as you tune into the needs of family and friends. But expect some fiery words along the way.


There’s explosive energy about so tread carefully.


Born on the zodiac’s Day of High Voltage, you are hard to ignore. If you must be rebellious, make sure you’re a rebel with a worthy cause.
