HOROSCOPES: AUGUST 21, 2020
MOON ALERT: After 4:30 a.m., there are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions. The moon is in Libra.
IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actress Carrie-Anne Moss (1967) shares your birthday. You are flexible and have great verbal skills. You can thrive in the arts. This year you will see that service to others, especially within your family, is important. This is why you must take care of yourself so that you are a strong resource for yourself and others. Look around you and invest in the relationships that you value.
Aries (March 21-April 19):
It’s Friday and you feel playful and flirtatious! You’ve got energy to burn with Mars in your sign; plus, relations are smooth with family right now. Because today’s moon is opposite your sign, you will have to go more than halfway when dealing with others. (A little cooperation.)
Taurus (April 20-May 20):
Home, family and your private life continue to be your primary focus. Fortunately, you are charming with everyone, because Venus is in your house of communications. The placement of the moon will encourage cooperation with others. Even deference.
Gemini (May 21-June 20):
Your fast pace continues along with your ability to attract money. You’re happy it’s Friday because you’re ready to play! Enjoy social outings, sports events, playful activities with kids and saucy flirtations.
Cancer (June 21-July 22):
This is a great day to buy wardrobe goodies for yourself, especially because you are focused on money, earnings and your basic values. A conversation with a female family member could be important. You might choose to be low-key tonight and relax because it feels good. Cool!
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22):
You’re strong because the sun is in your sign, while Mars in your fellow fire sign supports your sun. When talking to others, you can trust your hunches. In turn, they can count on your desire to get right down to the nitty-gritty to get the truth.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22):
It’s a mixed bag because the sun urges you to be laid back, whereas Mercury wants you to talk to everyone! Today in particular you are thinking about finances, shared property, earnings, cash flow — the whole enchilada. (As usual: Why is there so much month left at the end of the money?)
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22):
Today the moon is in your sign, which will heighten your emotions. (It will do this for today and tomorrow.) Relax, it happens to each of us for two days every month — no biggie. Plus, with Venus at the top of your chart, you make a charming impression on everyone!
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21):
You’ve been in the spotlight and things are looking good because people are impressed with you. Nevertheless, anyone can take only so much of the spotlight! That’s why you’re happy to slip away and be low-key today. You’ll keep working, but privately.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):
This is a lovely day to enjoy good times with friends, especially a female companion. You’re up to party, have some fun and enjoy sports events or playful times with kids. Romance will appeal. Basically, you want to “get away from all this.” (But where?)
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19):
You’re high visibility today. In fact, personal details about your private life might be public. Sheesh! Perhaps this is because you have been focused on shared property issues along with inheritances and insurance matters. Fortunately, Venus opposite your sign improves all your dealings with others. Bonus!
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):
You’re restless today. You want to do something different because you need a little stimulation. Is it possible to go someplace you’ve never been before? It will also please you to learn something new — something fascinating! You want a lively discussion with someone. Yeah.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20):
You will have no trouble defending your own best interests in discussions about inheritances, shared property and such. Fiery Mars is in your money house and Mercury is opposite your sign. “Bring it on!” (Easy does it.)
