Horoscopes: Aug. 20, 2014

The moon checks back in to her home base in Cancer and starts getting cozy. There’s a sense of relief in the air, like we no longer need to pretend. All of the uncomfortable clothes come off, metaphorically speaking, and we feel free to exist in a more natural form. Let down your guard and just be.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Should you stray from the path? Of course! But only when your whole body and soul make it nearly impossible not to do so. The path resonates with you for a reason. Don’t leave it until you’re compelled to.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll get pleasure from defying reason, passing notes in the classroom of reality and refusing to be a slave to logic. As a result, your experiences may verge on the bizarre, but they will be a whole lot of fun, too.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Learning can be uncomfortable and often is. Irritating circumstances and people teach us about tolerance. Frustration is the start of ambition. Seeing the positive side of negative emotions will help you bear them.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The ideal and the real find a meeting place. You’ll create exactly what you wanted on some level. When you want something else, you’ll create that, too. It’s good to be you!

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If you are living life fully, you’re going to make mistakes. So maybe you should feel good about them. If you’re ashamed, look into the situation and figure out what you need to forgive.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You have high standards, but are they broad, as well? Open your mind. There are many ways to reach a desired outcome. Gemini and Sagittarius will be your allies on the matter.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your social set is slowly shifting. The good friends you’ve made will remain your loyal crew, but you’ll also enjoy what comes with learning about someone new.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Life on Mars is not so hospitable. As long as you’re on Earth, don’t hurry past the pleasure. You deserve to savor it. Even if you didn’t deserve it, it still would be a tribute to the universe to appreciate it in all its plentiful glory.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Napoleon Bonaparte said that we should never interrupt our own enemy when he is making a mistake. Today, through pursed lips, you’ll witness the other side doing what they should not.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). In every poker game, there comes a point when even the one with the best cards feels the need to get up and go home. Anyone can cut their losses. You show grace by knowing when to cut your gains.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The one who makes you promises is not the same one who will keep them. The promise-keeper is understated and shy. Look for that person, and sense the deep wells of integrity within.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Cynicism is evil, or maybe it’s worse than evil. Guard against it. There’s no reason to become jaded now. You still can be a part of a triumph. Don’t stop dreaming, or you’ll freeze up inside.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’re lighter and brighter. What used to bother you no longer will. Next month brings new people and much love into your life. You’ll take a family victory personally in October – indeed, you are largely to credit for the win. The best financial months are November and April. You’ll break free of self-imposed limits in December. Aries and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 4, 11, 18 and 28.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I’m an Aries, born March 25, 1981. I recently said goodbye to a Libra man who was born on Oct. 12, 1973. I thought we were meant for each other. But he wants to be friends right now and can’t give me what I want. Why do I still want it from him then? Should I try harder?”

Absolutely not. Your warrior spirit rages with the mantra “never say die,” but truly you cannot keep love alive by willing it to be so. Just know that this is not a case of having given up too soon. There’s no amount of work you could do to revive this. The most graceful thing is to walk away and find other ways to make yourself happy. He has made up his mind. Trying to force a relationship after one person has already made up his or her mind is pretty sad. Be happy instead. The next six weeks will support you in your efforts to heal old wounds, release grudges and recognize the difference between a helpful and unhelpful partnership. You’d be wise to devote your time to your own interests instead of trying to get involved with anyone new.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Disney star turned pop princess Demi Lovato has a big voice and an even bigger ambition to entertain. This Leo was born when both the sun and Mercury, the communication planet, were in the sign of show business. Lovato has her moon in Taurus, the sign that rules the throat and vocal cords. This is a common astrological placement for those with big and/or unique voices.
