TUESDAY AUGUST 20, 2019

ARIES March 21-April 20 **

A loved one or colleague may criticise your performance – or your habits – but try not to be offended. Your motto for the day? Maintain your Ram equilibrium, keep calm and carry on!

TAURUS April 21-May 21 ***

When it comes to financial matters you’re seeing the big picture, which is great for planning future projects. But the Moon and Pluto are at odds, so resist the urge to be an irritable Bull.

GEMINI May 22-June 21 ***

It’s up to talkative Twins to lighten up proceedings, as many people will be very intense today. Don’t trample over sensitive feelings though. Take the time to really listen to others.

CANCER June 22-July 23 **

Close relationships won’t be smooth-sailing today Crabs, as Pluto stirs up your intense emotions. The other planetary patterns encourage you to cool down, calm down and compromise!

LEO July 24-Aug 23 **

Expect intense encounters with others today Cats. Be patient and don’t jump to half-baked conclusions. If you pass on unsubstantiated hot gossip, you could find yourself out in the cold.

VIRGO Aug 24-Sep 23 **

There could be complications with a moody child, teenager or close friend as they take something you say the wrong way. So strive to be extra diplomatic, and choose your words wisely.

LIBRA Sep 24-Oct 23 ***

Don’t depend too much on the help of others, as they are preoccupied with their own issues. Learn to be more self-reliant Libra! It’s a good time to spruce up your home office or domestic space.

SCORPIO Oct 24-Nov 22 **

The Moon squares Pluto, which can activate your moody and control-freak side. So settle down Scorpio! If you take things too seriously, then it will be a long, dramatic and complicated day.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 23-Dec 21 ***

Your boredom threshold is set on low and you don’t have the patience to put up with tedious people or long explanations. So strive to extricate yourself from such situations in a tactful way.

CAPRICORN Dec 22-Jan 20 ***

Are you incredibly focused on a personal project … or just plain obsessed? By all means work hard on a current interest Capricorn, but don’t neglect your nearest and dearest in the process.

AQUARIUS Jan 21-Feb 19 ***

You could feel restless or temperamental today Aquarius. Boredom is a big no-no. So make sure you immerse yourself in exciting activities that keep you busy, occupied and out of trouble.

PISCES Feb 20-March 20 ***

You’re in the mood to talk and share, but is anybody listening? Those around you are preoccupied with their own issues. So have fun pursuing individual projects that pique your Piscean curiosity.

YOUR DAY

Expect some intense emotional connections today.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

You have a natural ability to empathise with other people so make the most of it. The next 12 months is the time to change jobs, find a new vocation or do some volunteer work.
