HOROSCOPES: AUGUST 31, 2020
MOON ALERT: There are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions. The moon is in Aquarius.
IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actor Richard Gere (1949) shares your birthday. You are honest, trustworthy and skillful in dealing with others. 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 perhaps teaching as well. 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): It’s Monday, the beginning of the week, which makes you think about your future. Not a bad idea, especially in these uncertain times. With Mars in your sign, you have energy! With Jupiter at the top of your chart, your reputation is stellar.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): You are high visibility. People are talking about you; and some might know personal details about your private life. Even though you’re in a playful mood, you are staying under the radar. Be aware of this scrutiny.
Gemini (May 21-June 20): Today you want to do something different. You feel you need to break out and run for freedom! It makes sense because you have had a lot of focus on home, family and your private life. You might also be involved with home repairs more than usual. Do something different today!
Cancer (June 21-July 22): You’re in busy mode. You’re making lists, talking to people and planning errands and appointments. You might be reading and studying more than usual, as well. Spend some time tying up loose details about shared property, inheritances and debt. You’ll be glad you did.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Money and money-making ideas are on your mind. You’re also thinking about possible travel plans. However, be aware that today you have to go more than halfway when dealing with others because the moon is opposite your sign. Be cooperative.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): This is a powerful week for you because the sun and Mercury are in your sign. People will listen to you. This will help you in disputes about shared property and inheritances. Even though friends are supportive, today you might have to perform a service for someone or help someone out.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You are happy to continue in a low-key fashion by working alone or behind the scenes this week. Fortunately, relations with bosses, parents and VIPs are excellent. Today is a playful day. You feel flirtatious. You will enjoy the company of your kids; however, be patient! (Mars opposite your sign.)
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Take some time from your busy, popular schedule today to focus on home, family and perhaps a female relative. You have lots of energy to get stuff done and things are going well. Nevertheless, today you need to pull in your reins and focus on personal matters.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Bosses, parents and teachers admire you! (Obviously, you can use this to your advantage this week if you need to open some doors or get approval or permission or something.) Gifts, money and support from others will come your way. You feel playful, and keen to share your ideas with someone.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Despite your desire to “get away from all this” and, hopefully, travel or find a refreshing change of scenery, today you are thinking about money, cash flow and your possessions. Tidy up some loose ends. Indeed, tidy up your possessions!
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Because the moon is still in your sign today, you might have heightened emotions or magnified reactions to what other people say and do. By tomorrow, this energy will be gone and things will feel more “normalized” — relatively speaking. Don’t jump to conclusions today.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Today you will prefer to hide somewhere and get some private time so you can catch your breath. Yes, it’s Monday, and everyone is raring to go, but you want to sleep in. Literally or metaphorically. Take it easy. Slowly, slowly.
