Your Horoscopes for Monday, August 10th
High-tension currents run through our lives today as mental Mercury crosses paths with electric Uranus. Although our nervous systems are firing on all cylinders, the Moon’s entry into self-contained Cancer at 8:08 am EDT makes it difficult to express our brilliant ideas. We know what we must do and we put on our best show, even if it’s a subdued version of our inner world now. Nevertheless, our originality and rebelliousness still finds a way out.
(Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Don’t fall victim to believing that you can do everything today. You may be shocked when you realize you’ve been so busy lately putting out fires that you forgot to do something that was quite important. Hopefully, you discover your omission early enough in the day to remedy the situation before things grow out of hand. Make a conscious decision to reassess your priorities prior to running into trouble. With a little forethought and discretion you can use this cosmic burst of energy to your advantage.
(Apr 20 – May 20)
You might assume that a cautious approach to scheduling your time will prevent any logistical issues from spoiling your day. Unfortunately, it’s nearly impossible to think of everything in advance. Don’t worry if something urgent pops up unexpectedly today. Rather than reacting fearfully, consider what this new situation can teach you and remain as open as possible to a radical change of direction. Integrating a different perspective places you in an even stronger position now than where you were before.
(May 21 – Jun 20)
Your emotions are changing so rapidly that it’s too complicated to explain what you’re feeling each moment. However, by the time you attempt to share your emotions, they have already begun to shift. You may try to talk really fast to anyone who will listen because you’re anxious to catch the wave; unfortunately, this fear-based strategy will only add to your frustration. Paradoxically, saying less will help you gather your thoughts so you can speak with more authority later on when it matters.
(Jun 21 – Jul 22)
It’s not easy to be very patient today because you’re expecting something wonderful to happen at work. The Moon’s return to your sign is emotionally empowering, but you’re still not likely to tell others what you need. You see no reason to waste time with words when a straightforward approach of incisive action will lead you directly to your goal. Don’t miss this cosmically blessed opportunity to pursue your ambitions and reach for the stars.
(Jul 23 – Aug 22)
Although a variety of social activities has kept you hopping during the past few days, you might feel the need to crawl back under the covers today after the emotional Moon enters your 12th House of Privacy. But even if you long to be alone, you can still benefit greatly from collaborating with others now. Shutting yourself off from the rest of the world isn’t your best move even if it sounds tempting in the moment; instead, find something exciting to do that you can’t help but want to share with your peers.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
You can be incredibly picky when choosing your friends, but letting down your guard is no problem at all once you give your stamp of approval. In fact, your openness can be rather disarming today as you shift gears instantaneously. Others might be quite surprised if they judge you too quickly by your appearance because your aloofness disappears once you make the choice to warm up. Nevertheless, don’t wait too long to show your interest or it could end up being too late. Trust your psychic radar and don’t be afraid to say yes.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
You aren’t interested in taking on any extra responsibilities today, prompting you to distance yourself from coworkers who place too many demands on you. You prefer someone else to be in charge now so people won’t depend on you so much. Unfortunately, it’s not so easy to avoid new obligations, especially if you recently led others to assume you would be there for them in a pinch. However, you can derive emotional satisfaction once you stop resisting the pressure to perform your job; take the high road and rise to the occasion, instead.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You might have a case of the jitters today, yet engaging in physical activity doesn’t seem to calm your fidgety nerves. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to work off your excess energy by throwing yourself into a job. In fact, pursuing creative endeavors might be your best chance for finding any peace now. Proving your worth by being productive is a misguided strategy; focus on the things that bring you pleasure, instead. You can always return to your unfinished projects tomorrow after your clarity returns and your heart is blissfully content.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
You are weary of trying to compete with people who are so wrapped up with their perfect performances that they miss the point. You have even less patience today for those folks who don’t share your goals or values. Rather than pretending to be interested in things that don’t matter to you, reserve your energy for more meaningful interactions. One deeply moving connection is more emotionally satisfying now than any number of trivial ones.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You feel a dramatic shift in your energy today as superficial conversations with coworkers start to make your skin crawl. Although you’re often more likely to engage in a pragmatic discussion, the nurturing Cancer Moon reveals your softer and sweeter side. Don’t worry about people thinking you’re weak for expressing your feelings. If you take a risk and surprise others with your emotional honesty, they might just respond in a similar fashion. It’s up to you to get the ball rolling and see who wants to play.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Although you may not be actively seeking new information now, you still might be confronted with a radical idea that contradicts your prior assumptions about relationships. Today’s news could temporarily turn your life inside out as shocking Uranus rattles Mercury the Messenger. However, once you realize the truth, you’ll be grateful that you had the courage to change your point of view. The future is calling, even if you’re tempted to retreat to the security of the past. Anticipation will win out in the end.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
You recently obtained a surprising scoop on someone you know and can’t help but wonder if it is true. However, it’s critical to consider the source of any incoming data so you can discern whether or not it’s worthy of your attention. Refrain from saying anything prematurely today; if you’re unsure about the validity of the facts, then bite your tongue until you know the whole story. Once something is spoken aloud, it’s impossible to take it back. Maintain your integrity and err on the side of discretion for the sake of all involved.
