August 12, 2015: Horoscope

ARIES (March 21 – April 20): Jupiter in the work area of your chart is sure to mean extra responsibilities, but if you tackle them in the right spirit and do the best job you can you will make a good impression on colleagues, employers and other important people. Get to it.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21): The last thing you want now is to waste time and energy trying to persuade other people to see things and do things your way. It’s what YOU do that counts, so do something creative, something that makes the world sit up and take notice.

GEMINI (May 22 – June 21): Some sort of domestic strife is likely today but, at the same time, you are feeling extremely good-natured, so it should be easy enough to deal with. The only reason you disagree about something is because you are approaching it from different angles.

CANCER (June 22 – July 23): You won’t lack for social invitations today but don’t feel you have to grace everyone with your presence. If you show your face too often you will begin to lose your rarity value. Even if you are not a celebrity as such you should act like one.

LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23): There have been a lot of ups and downs in your life of late and you would no doubt welcome a little stability. That will come later but for now there is another roller-coaster situation you have to deal with. Hold on tight.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23): You cannot be the life and soul of the party every day and some people need to be reminded of that fact. Now that Jupiter is moving through your sign you will find it easier to use the magic word more often. That word is “No”.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23): This is a good time to look back at your efforts over the past few months and learn from both your triumphs and your failures. Your attitude is so positive now that nothing can hurt you emotionally, so be brutally honest with yourself.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22): You rarely, if ever, change your opinions once your mind is made up but over the next few days you will find yourself questioning some of the things you have come to believe. Could it be you were deceived? Maybe it was self-deception?

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21): Jupiter in the career area of your chart means you will attract the attention of people in positions of power, and for all the right reasons. If they like what they see you could soon be moving up in the world – if that’s what you want.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20): Get on the move. Get out into the world and explore. If you have shut yourself away in recent weeks you must now go right the other way and let everyone know that you still exist – some people may have forgotten!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19): You have so many options to choose from now it may be a bit confusing. You are strongly advised to go with the option that provides you with the greatest amount of freedom, even though it may not be so financially rewarding.

PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20): You are going to have to make some major decisions over the next few days, the kind of decisions that have far-reaching consequences. Don’t put them off in the hope that they might go away. Be brave and do what has to be done.
