Your Daily Horoscopes for August 8th

Today’s farseeing Sagittarius Moon inspires us to think big while retrograde Mercury skips back into dramatic Leo, encouraging us to deliver our messages with an extra punch. However, the tipsy trickster bumps into a confusing opposition with fuzzy Neptune, repeating this stressful aspect that recently occurred on July 29. We would be wise to pay extra attention to all forms of communication because our good intentions could get lost in the fog.

 

Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You may be the leader of the gossip squad at work today because you can waste time as long as you’re having fun. But you are so quick-witted now that you might say something that shouldn’t be shared. Words slip out of your mouth before you think about their impact. Keep in mind that taking a few breaths before speaking up won’t make you less popular; in fact, slowing down your delivery may be enough to save you from an embarrassing situation.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

You appear to be putting in maximum effort on the job, but you can simultaneously lose yourself in your daydreams, even if your double life isn’t noticed by anyone else. Although others cannot tell how far from reality your mind is meandering, they can see that your rich imagination is adding something special to your practical ideas. Don’t hesitate to share your creative point of view, even if it seems unrealistic to you at first.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

You may be at a turning point in a friendship because you need to decide if you’re going to take it to the next level or retreat to emotionally safer ground. Be careful, for you could make a bad choice today if you let your hopes color your perceptions. Postpone any major decisions for a couple of days, if you can. Once your muddled thinking clears, you’ll be able to choose your course of action with more confidence.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

It’s challenging to compare your idealistic dreams with what you currently have in your life. The gulf between your fantasies and reality may be so great now that you don’t even know where to begin. Instead of setting yourself up for failure by aiming too high, try a more modest start. Acknowledging what you’ve already accomplished is better than tearing yourself down with self-criticism. Beginning with a few simple affirmations can give you the positive boost you need.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You may be basking in the light of admiration today, but you could fool yourself into thinking that everyone is your friend. It isn’t that anyone is necessarily working against you; it’s just that others have their own agendas and it’s crucial for you to understand where they diverge from yours. Don’t waste your breath trying to convince anyone that you’re right. If you can be satisfied with what each person has to offer now, you won’t set yourself up for disappointment.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You could have a tough time staying on track today because you can see fantastic possibilities everywhere you look. Although you know that hard work is key in reaching your goals, your optimism leads you to believe a task will be easier than it is. Still, you are at a fork in the road and you may not know which way to go. Just remember that you are probably missing some crucial facts, so it’s wiser to take the more conservative route, even if it means walking away from the excitement for now.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You’re a bit of a social butterfly today, flying from one captivating conversation to another. However, this doesn’t mean that you should try to avoid a more pressing subject, even if it leads to unfamiliar territory. You can still clear the air by sharing what’s important to you, but circumvent a passionate discussion for a few days.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

No matter how certain you are of your current choices, it’s not a good idea to trust your senses today because they can easily mislead you. Don’t allow yourself to be lulled into a state of hypnotic acceptance. Even if you’re dreaming of smooth sailing ahead, there are storm clouds on the horizon and you are advised to batten down the hatches while the Sun is still shining. Ironically, a rough patch might be enough of a wake-up call to get you back on course.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

The Moon’s visit to your optimistic sign can raise feelings of nostalgia as you remember a kinder and gentler version of your past. But it’s not smart to believe the stories you tell now because you may have changed the facts to support your current mood. There’s nothing wrong with reviewing your personal history as long as you understand that you can’t live fully in the present moment when you’re clinging too tightly onto memories.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You may be tempted by an unrealistic fantasy about a relationship now. However, your idealistic dreams can actually stand between you and happier days. Acknowledging your attachment to one particular outcome is a good start if you’re willing to make it less important. There’s no need to go to extremes and deny your preferences if you can maintain a healthy perspective.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Perhaps you thought that you had everything under control, but today you may miss an important piece of the puzzle. Fortunately, it’s not necessary to fix anything if you make a wrong assumption. Becoming more aware of your mistakes is enough for now. Don’t initiate action too quickly or you could stir up a hornet’s nest that leads to an intense power struggle. Your relationships are in flux, so take time to see where things are going before trying to exert too much control.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You are an avid dreamer and today’s Mercury-Neptune aspect magnifies your wishful thinking. You can journey so far into the depths of your imagination that you may lose track of what’s going on in the real world. An unexpected event can shock you into awareness, waking you from your contemplative state and confronting you with the truth. It may be very disconcerting at first, but the reality check could be a blessing in disguise.
