HOROSCOPES: AUGUST 22, 2020
MOON ALERT: There are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions until 11:15 Chicago time. The moon is in Libra.
IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actor Ty Burrell (1967) shares your birthday. You are sensitive to the feelings of others, which helps make you a natural leader. This year you will learn something that sets you in a new direction, which could be crucial for your success next year. It’s a time of learning and teaching. Explore meditation, yoga or any discipline that helps you get a better understanding of who you are. Invest in your future self.
Aries (March 21-April 19): You will swing into work mode for the next four weeks, which is why you will be efficient, effective and productive in everything you do. You will set the bar so high, you will even want to become healthier as you color-code your closet. (Gasp.)
Taurus (April 20-May 20): It’s play city for you for the next four weeks! Accept invitations to party. Enjoy sports events, fun activities with kids, romance, social outings, barbecues, picnics and social distancing. Pretend your mask is a fan, which means it’s all about the eyes.
Gemini (May 21-June 20): Home, family and your private world will be your main focus for the next four weeks. Grab every chance to cocoon at home among familiar surroundings. Admittedly, you might focus on home repairs and family discussions. Oh well.
Cancer (June 21-July 22): The pace of your days will accelerate in the next four weeks, because you’re busy! Short trips, increased reading, writing and studying, errands and appointments plus time spent with siblings, relatives and neighbors will give you a jampacked schedule.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): “Show me the money!” For the next four weeks, you’ll be focused on money, earnings and cash flow. You might also contemplate a major purchase. Some of this is because you want to expand your world and explore new ideas.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The sun is in your sign for the next four weeks giving you a chance to recharge your batteries for the rest of year. Do whatever you can to replenish and restore yourself! People and favorable situations will be attracted to you.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Today the moon is in your sign; however, the sun is now hiding. It will continue to hide in your chart for the next four weeks, which gives you a perfect opportunity to contemplate your navel and think about what you want for your new year ahead — birthday to birthday. Write down some goals.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You’re entering a lovely, popular time for the next four weeks! Everyone wants to see your face, especially younger people. Meanwhile, you will grab every chance to travel or learn something new because you want to expand your universe. Midst all this, you’re still busting your buns!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):
For the next four weeks, the sun will be at the top of your chart. This happens only once a year and it shines (symbolically) a spotlight on you that is flattering. Everyone will be impressed even though it’s all smoke and mirrors.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): More than ever, in the next four weeks, you want to get outta Dodge. You want to expand your world. You want to travel. You want to learn something new. (You get the idea.) In these difficult times of isolation and restriction, do what you can.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The next four weeks might be more intense than usual for two reasons: One is that you’re focused on financial matters, shared property, taxes and debt. The other is because your sex drive will be hot! Money and sex — a deadly combo. (The word “casual” won’t even be in your vocabulary.)
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): You will need more sleep in the next four weeks because the sun will be opposite your sign, which means that symbolically speaking, in your chart, it is as far away from you as it gets all year. (The sun is your source of energy.) Go to bed. Your focus will be on partnership! Big time.
