Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, August 10th

This may be an emotionally turbulent day, even with the Moon in stabilizing Capricorn. We would be unwise to underestimate the intensity of the Moon’s square to unruly Uranus, opposition to warrior Mars and conjunction with passionate Pluto. A somber Moon-Saturn square later in the day would normally be sufficient to put a lid on the turmoil, but Mars is moving toward an opposition with Pluto which increases aggression and forceful resistance.

 

Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

There may be too much happening today to process everything, especially if you’re hearing conflicting stories. However, you’re not very receptive because you are afraid of being misled by someone else’s agenda, especially when you are on your own mission. It’s tempting to defend your right to maintain your individuality, but there isn’t as much at stake as you think, so pick your battles carefully before jumping into a fight.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

You may feel as if you’re in the middle of someone else’s struggle today and you don’t want to be distracted by another melodrama. You might consider avoiding the conversation completely, but you realize that you can actually have a positive impact on the situation. You don’t need to come up with a solution and then sell your idea. In fact, all you have to do is listen to both sides of the argument. For now, sufficiently airing an issue could be enough to dissolve the tension.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

You want to share your feelings with a trusted friend, but your harmless disclosure could inadvertently elicit an explosive reaction. You understand the necessity of exercising self-restraint today because you can sense the delicate balance of power. However, you’re still not interested in changing your mind now. Unfortunately, your current lack of flexibility might make a difficult situation worse. On the other hand, trying to meet another person halfway could produce mutual benefits.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

You may be feeling an upwelling of anger today, yet it seems more intense than the situation would normally warrant. Although you want to express your frustration, you don’t want to deal with the emotional fallout. Play it cool and sidestep confrontation for now. Or ride your passion and say what’s in your heart no matter what. There’s no right or wrong answer; ultimately, it’s your decision to make.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You might not show your feelings today in an attempt to avoid a possible meltdown, as your emotions pull you into the shadows. You are more accustomed to the light, making it challenging for you to figure out what’s currently happening. For now, don’t worry about making your point. It’s more important to concentrate on your emotions and to process them in real time, rather than wasting time explaining yourself to others.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You aren’t happy with the role that your friends have put you in now and you’re not sure how to get out of it. There are no quick and easy solutions to your dilemma, even if you are in touch with the group dynamics at play. You may be tempted to internalize another person’s struggle and treat it as if it were your own. However, it’s smarter to just steer clear of any melodrama that isn’t yours. Don’t worry about disappointing others; they’ll get over it sooner than you think.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Others know that you excel in the department of negotiation, so it’s no surprise that they would call on you for assistance now. As much as you might want to help, you have your own decisions to make today. Nevertheless, there’s still time to practice a bit of shuttle diplomacy, shuffling back and forth between the disagreeing parties. Your success depends on not getting too attached to any of the messages that you deliver.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Your two key planets, Mars and Pluto, are pulling in opposite directions, placing you in the middle of an intense tug-of-war. You cannot just express the anger of warrior Mars because unrelenting Pluto will quickly even the score. Unfortunately, you cannot just walk away from the conflict, either. Ultimately, you must be as flexible as you can to get you through this tricky time.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You don’t want to be drawn into an emotional squabble today yet it becomes more difficult to stay neutral, even if you try. You aren’t interested in choosing sides, for this tactic will only fuel an unnecessary conflict that wastes your time. Be an outspoken community member and talk about the pitfalls of supporting fearful negativity. Follow your own brand of spirituality and let your love light shine.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

A relationship may be a major source of stress now as battle lines are drawn, making it harder to remain civil. You might prefer sorting out your differences through cool and calm communication, yet you can easily slip back into engaging in the needless drama. Instead of being forthright and expressing all your feelings today, act judiciously. A little bit of discretion goes a long way to settle everyone’s frazzled nerves.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

It’s not easy to maintain objectivity today, even as you try to see the pros and cons of a co-worker’s plan. You think that you know what’s best and you aren’t afraid to tell everyone who asks. But rather than judging others, you are wiser to clean up your own act first. Making small improvements throughout the next several days is a better idea than wasting time blaming another person for your dilemma.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Your friends may think that they’re helping you today, but you believe that their behavior is too controlling. However, it feels awkward to come right out and tell them to back off because that would just alienate your most supportive allies. Still, it may be time to dig in your heels by setting clear personal boundaries that enable you to feel truly independent.
