Horoscopes: Aug. 17, 2014

This connection of Jupiter and Venus in Leo may as well be a cupid in the sky – it’s pretty spectacular for lovers and potential lovers everywhere. Think of this day as a one-time deal. What are the things you could do now that you might never do again? What are the things you’ll only do once? This is the “once” in question. Do them now.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). What is so amazing about social acceptance that it makes people sell out who they really are in order to obtain it? This is the question on your mind now as you bask in approval and try not to let it change you.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your good looks will take you places. Of course, the exterior can only get you in the door, and then the inside you will have to do the rest. Anyway, you’ll be brilliant when you turn on the charm.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). While most pursue the invisible mysteries, you’ll opt for the visible ones. Just because a situation is seen doesn’t make it any less mysterious than what is unseen.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Maybe your father was right. And you can tell that to your son, who thinks you’re wrong, all day long, and he’ll never believe it. If you don’t have a son, you’ll still live the irony of this today.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Warning: Advertising sometimes makes the worst appear better. Don’t go for the slick copy and big promises. Stick to the tried and true. Chances are it will fit your budget better.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There are days when you’ll be glad that you gave people the benefit of the doubt, but this isn’t one of them. Right now, those with a future should avoid those with a past.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You have good financial mojo with fellow air signs, Gemini and Aquarius. These signs are so on your wavelength now that you’ll arrive at the same conclusions at approximately the same time.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You have the heart of a child today. You’ll smile. You’ll laugh. You’ll believe in impossible things, and your pure belief may be enough to make them true.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Would you rather learn from experience or have an experience that comes from learning? One of the two will be part of your day. Luck follows you because you’re tuned in and receptive.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It’s much easier to steer a bike that’s moving. The same goes for a car or a life. So don’t worry too much about which way you should go. The important thing is to go – and then it will be easier to take control of the wheel.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If you undertake too much at the start, is that going to be a problem? Yes! Better to underplay it and promise nothing or very little. There will be great pleasure in over-delivering.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll be in the mood to dance the new dances, taste the exotic fruits and throw any sense of self-consciousness to the wind. When you live dangerously, you feel completely alive.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. It’s a year to write home about – the news keeps flowing. Every other week there’s something worth posting publicly. September brings a romantic vibe to things you never before thought of as romantic. Work percolates to a new level in October. Don’t be nice; be all business. Your love scene gets interesting in November. Cancer and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 29, 14, 3, 25 and 11.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: The two planets dominating the scene this week are doing so in the most benevolent fashion. Venus and Jupiter, the love and luck police, are working together to ensure that those who are lucky have love and those who are lovely have luck.

Truly, the two have been in tight relations since the beginning of time. If you believe in the law of attraction (which just happens to be the law that keeps the universe in place, with the moon orbiting around a planet orbiting around the sun . . .), then you might be interested in how the two most attractive planets in our system hooking up in Leo affects the landscape of relationships, good will and good luck. Suffice it to say it’s a good omen, signifying playful interaction, flirty banter, physical fun, excitement and a pupil-dilating level of interest in people, things and life.

By the end of the week, the winds will have shifted in a Virgoan direction. Work will get done. Projects will be completed. Issues will be laid to rest. But for now, let’s enjoy the moment of utter silliness that comes before.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Widely considered to be the greatest actor of his time, Robert De Niro proves with his career choices that an artist must have a warrior spirit and a workman’s approach to his craft. The master was born with Mercury and Venus in Virgo, the sign of industriousness and growth. The Pisces moon of artistry is guided by his sun, Jupiter and Pluto in the sign of entertainment, which is to say Leo.
