Horoscopes: Aug. 16, 2014

Yesterday Mercury entered Virgo with industrious intentions, and today it will be nearly impossible to slack off. There are details to tend to, situations to analyze, performances to critique. If you think there’s no rest for the wicked, you should see how hard the wholesome work.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Is the call of the wild irresistible? It’s certainly difficult to resist today when your inner animal seems to know something you don’t. Instead of thinking about what will happen next, you may just answer the call.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The message is to love and show the compassion you’ve been shown when you needed it so much. You’ll do this and feel that all is well in the world.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your needs are many today, so just take it one thing at a time. Start by gathering information from the expert. Preface your question with some praise you can believe in or a little charm you can comfortably deliver.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). It’s like you’re having an open-invitation type of party, and you’re not sure who is coming, but you’re sure it will be fun. The key to success is all in the work you do to prepare.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Share your story because it has universal appeal. Others around you will respond by sharing theirs, and you’ll all learn something about what it means to be human in these times.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may find yourself worrying about where things are going or how long it will take to get there, but these concerns will only rob you of the beauty in the moment. Relax and come back to now.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). When you notice your shadow, your inclination is to play with it, not run and hide from it. What fun there is to be had in casting illusions! Your loved ones will agree and be totally into your games.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’re right in line with popular thinking today. Your ideas will be very commercial. If you share them with the right people, you both stand to make some money.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Some friendships you pursue, and others you feel thrown into. You will get more joy out of your friendships when you take an active role and connect with people you can relate to.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It’s not who you know but how well you know them that will matter today. Sharp social instincts will guide you toward deepening the relationships that will enrich you the most. Leo is high on the list.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You have fans. Cozy up and let them praise you. Fight your usual self-effacing tendencies. A little ego will be terrific for your personal life and your finances.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There’s something to enjoy in every stage of a relationship. When the newness wears off, the next thing to look forward to is a real sense of connection, which is different from the heady buzz of infatuation.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. The cosmic message is: Relax! Vigilance can be counterproductive. September offers a reprieve from all the constant efforts to improve. Oddly enough, it’ll be one of your most productive times. October perks up your personal life. November features an important family matter – you’ll be heroically inclined. Taurus and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 27, 41, 22 and 11.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I’m a Leo woman who was born on 8/2/51 at 2:07 p.m., Bronx, N.Y. I fell quickly in love with a Sagittarius man two years ago, but was very hurt when he became physically and emotionally unavailable a few months later. He has re-entered my life, and yes, I still like him very much. Will it work this time? ”

What a fun-loving chart you have! Your colorful style and spunky personality shine through – no doubt this is what this Sagittarius was attracted to immediately. I see self-esteem issues that manifest in the tendency to value yourself based on the attention you get from people you perceive to be of a higher status. Break the bad habit of giving your power away in this manner! Start with this Sagittarius man. Use him as a testing ground and a way to develop emotional muscle tone. When you no longer care whether he likes you or not, you’ll know you’ve reached the next level in your personal life – the level at which you’re willing to love yourself and be with people who genuinely want a relationship with you. This guy doesn’t.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Madonna embodies the spirit of Leo, an endless source of entertaining energy. Whether she’s doing jury duty, changing her sound, publishing books or helping out her hometown city with a big financial boost, Queen Madge does it with the kind of style that ensures she gets as many eyeballs on the deed as humanly possible.
