Free Daily Horoscope - August 13 2016
● General: An introverted person is intriguing to you right now, and it's going to be tricky to get them to come out of their shell. Your best approach today is humor. Make a joke that they and only they can understand. Sharing a laugh is a great way to share a moment and start a conversation. And if your first try doesn't get them to open up, don't worry. Show them your sweet side often enough and they will eventually let their walls down. They might actually be more outgoing to you are!
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: You can be forgiven for focusing on your personal project instead of your work project. But why not try to kill two birds with one stone? Practice being charming. Perfected, it can bring you success in both arenas.
● Finances: Pioneering is fun, but not cost effective. What you need is not something groundbreaking or original. The tried and true methods are still what will make you the most money, so stick with what works even if it's not particularly revolutionary.
● Love: Today is a great opportunity for transformation. You could experience some grief and confusion as the hours wear on. Don't hold the emotions back. Allow your subconscious to work out the pain. You'll come to a resolution before you hit the hay.
● General: You can't let other people's jealousy get you down. If they feel threatened by your success, that is their problem -- not yours. Your job today is to just keep on being smarter and faster. Once you stop caring about what other people are freaking out about, you'll feel a lot freer -- which in turn will help you be even better at what you do! Serve as a good example to others by being honorable and not getting down in the mud with someone full of envy.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: If you're looking at a blank page in your calendar tomorrow, then take a non-work approach. At the office, the more eager you are, the more projects you win. Outside of work, don't overdo the enthusiasm.
● Finances: Nothing that puts you out on a limb is worth trying today, and not just in the financial arena. You usually have no trouble charming those you meet, but today don't even bother trying to say hello. Certainly, don't risk your money.
● Love: You know how stupid all this lovey-dovey stuff is. After all, being part of a couple is having expectations. Think for a moment how lucky you are to be free of expectations. You're one person who won't be getting the call, 'So, where are my flowers? My diamond tennis bracelet?'
● General: If you are working on building a better love relationship, you have to commit yourself to being honest. It's not like you tell untruths on a regular basis, but from time to time you have told little white lies, thinking you are protecting someone. But that's not your call. And from now on, you will get a lot farther with someone if you tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. When you make choices out of fear, you usually make the wrong choices. Share your feelings in an unedited way.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Strange, the later in the day it gets, the more energy you have. It's the pull of being off what you feel. Use the high energy it generates to finish the work on your desk.
● Finances: You consider money to be your savior on good days and your boss on bad ones. Both notions are inaccurate. You should be thinking of money as just another one of your partners, if not simply one of your tools. Don't let it continue to intimidate you.
● Love: Today is a great day to surround yourself with the most important people in your life. Don't dwell on all the jewelry and flowers exchanging hands. Instead, admire the gifts in your life -- your sanity, health and sometimes happiness. It'll only get better from here.
● General: If you are getting concerned about a friend's finances, keep it to yourself today. Put yourself in their place -- how would you like a friend talking to you about your money issues? Unless they bring it up, it's not a legitimate topic of conversation. So keep mum if they talk about their latest fabulous shopping trip when you still remember them complaining about their car payments very recently. What they choose to do with their money is their business.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Be careful starting any projects that you can't finish by the end of the day. There will be no coming into the office after hours. Something else needs your attention at home.
● Finances: You can't get motivated to make any money, much less save it. If you need to spend, you can make it without going overboard. If you treat overspending the same way you treat other private little problems. Start by remaining disciplined.
● Love: Feelings will boil over the top today. Instead of dragging out your mementos of love gone bad and reliving the mistakes and missed opportunities, get out there and contribute to the stream of life. Do something positive for the community -- give back.
● General: Exciting new emotions have been swimming beneath the surface for a while, and today you are going to see them bubble up now and again -- probably whenever that certain person walks into the room. This burst of emotions could feel a bit frightening, but not as they continue on throughout the day. You'll get comfortable with the effect this person has on you, and you'll eventually be able to have an intelligent conversation with them. The key is to give yourself time to get to this point.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: It's now or never. No, it has nothing to do with work, even though you're stuck in the office for a long day. Romance should be in the air. If it's not, it's time to take action.
● Finances: You don't have limitless supplies of energy, and in your case, energy is money. Take it easy. Spend it wisely, because once you run out, so does your income. You can still have plenty of fun without going hog wild.
● Love: Romance is much more than a couple-centric indulgence of sex and romance. It's actually a celebration of love -- and that can be anyone. Pick up the phone today and tell your parents, siblings, friends, pets, whatever how much you love them.
● General: Look for a very flirtatious situation to heat up quite a bit today -- they are turning up the heat! It seems that they want things to move along more quickly than they have been, up to now. Hang on, this one could be quite a bumpy ride! And if romantic matters aren't top priority right now, you can expect a flirtation of another sort to get a lot more promising. You're going to have some time and the opportunity to delve deeper into something you've been interested in learning more about.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Don't just settle for doing a job. Do an important job. And if you don't happen to have one that's deep and meaningful, then at least do the best you can at the one you're stuck with.
● Finances: If you don't rush with the things you need to do to shore up a business deal, you'll be stuck working -- or worse, not finishing at all. Don't let yourself off the hook until it's a done deal. You want the day on the right note.
● Love: Today's the first day of your life -- so to speak. Don't dwell on what you're lacking -- a relationship will not complete you. Now's a fantastic time to plan the adventure of a lifetime. If you've wanted to live abroad, sail the seven seas or move to Hollywood and become famous, put it in action.
● General: You worked hard for the respect you have earned, and today you need to make sure you hold onto it by resisting temptation. Don't compromise your beliefs for the sake of easy money or a quick fix today -- convenience is never a good substitute for real value and meaning. Money is not the most important thing in the world, although it sometimes feels like it. People will notice you standing up for your principles, and they will admire you all the more for it -- you have to trust that.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Of course you're ready to go home. So is half of your office at around this time. But don't forget for a second where you are and just how you should be acting, romance or no romance.
● Finances: It's easy to be idealistic about money. That's good on many levels. You both need to give and want to give. That's a win-win if ever there was one. Make finding the right worthy recipient your biggest project.
● Love: Sitting at home, crying in your beer won't make things any better. Now, hit the Internet and check out the singles sites. Arrange a date, post of profile or find awesome events in your area. You have nothing to lose.
● General: You are feeling more experimental today -- you're drawn to new ideas and foreign cultures. Things that used to be confusing are now fascinating. People who used to be disagreeable are now provocative. You're getting more comfortable with the things that used to make you squirm, and today is the day to get even more familiar with them. Open the envelope and peek into what has always been a mystery to you. Your comfort zone is just that -- comfortable. And it's time for you to push past it.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: You're tossing ideas back and forth, and not work-related ones, either. Giving in to someone else today may make for a better tomorrow. It will also free up your time to focus on work.
● Finances: Everyone suffers from impulse buys. Don't let yourself get caught up in their spending frenzies. Stick to the budget that is right for you. Remind yourself that what you have to give is more valuable than anything money can buy.
● Love: You're not the only single on the planet -- so, dress up in your hottest outfit and hit the town, by yourself. Head to the hippest spot in town and pick out the hottest person there. A one-night stand can be exhilarating on a day like today -- and who knows? It could turn into something more.
● General: There are going to be a lot of enthusiastic people around you today, which is usually fun. But the trouble is that what they are all excited about is really snoozeville for you. You're simply not feeling it the way they are. Rather than fake your feelings and try to hop on the happy bandwagon, just get your distance from the crowd. Go off on your own. If you stick around with that sour attitude, you could rain on their parade, which is no fun for anyone.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Your plans for tomorrow require some preparation time, but you're stuck in the office for the day. Do what you can on the sly. The rest can wait until after hours.
● Finances: Nothing happens the way you think it will, from the amount you have to spend to what things cost. The unexpected goes in your favor more often than not, though. Enjoy the good feelings a good buy brings and ride the punches of a low balance.
● Love: Put on your dancing shoes and cut a rug -- tonight's a fantastic evening to boogie 'til you drop. Nothing feeds your soul like bone-crunching beats and hot, sweaty bodies. So slip into something slinky or sexy and go clubbin'! What a great way to grind out all that aggression.
● General: You are quite good at knowing how to not take things too personally, and this is a skill you should be ready to employ today. You're going to be thrust into an emotionally charged situation where people's behavior won't be predictable -- and someone might say something without realizing how it might sound to your ears. You need to stay objective if you want to keep from getting in arguments and having a stressful day. Apply caution to any conclusions you make.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: You might not be doing exactly what it is that constitutes your 'career work,' but you can make the most of it. Don't wait for anyone else to do it for you. Give yourself your own challenges.
● Finances: A big deadline will be here before you can blink. Don't sit back and wait. If you structure your time and money for the next two weeks, you'll be spending more than you can afford. Get disciplined before it's too late.
● Love: All of your friends have significant others and can't hang out with you. Don't make a big deal about it. Slip into bed early tonight with a good book, or a friend with favors, depending on how randy you feel!
● General: It's good to heed your need to feel socially useful, but do not let your altruism overshadow your personal responsibilities today. You can't worry about other people's problems when you have your own to figure out. A friend might try to play on your sense of guilt in order to get your help today, but you can't give it if you don't have the time. Putting their needs first will only make you regret your actions later on. Tell them you're sorry, but you can't step up today.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Personal issues are getting in the way of work, if only because they're on your mind. Don't be aloof. Take the initiative and connect with the person who's bothering you. Then get on with your work.
● Finances: Your desire to give is unrestrained. Make sure you do it in an organized way. There are plenty of groups that are just as deserving as your family and friends, so spend some time doing your research, finding those that share your values.
● Love: You're nursing a mad, raving crush on someone -- except they don't know it because they're a celebrity! Host a movie night with your favorite actor. And don't hesitate to invite others over to salivate with you.
● General: Are you getting annoyed with a friend, but not sure how to let them know? Do yourself (and them) a favor and keep quiet about your frustrations. Just start spending more time with other people and either they will get the message or they'll initiate a conversation about why things have changed. Then and only then will they be ready to hear the truth you have to tell -- without going into any great emotional upheaval. Not everyone is ready to hear the cold, hard truth about their behavior.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Nothing to do before time runs out? Help colleagues instead of twiddling your thumbs. If for no other reason than that you'll be putting points in the bank for when you need help from others.
● Finances: Destiny may be on your side, but that's not the way you operate. Paying attention to telltale signs is your forte. You hardly feel like you're counting on luck after all the information you collect. Keep putting two and two together.
● Love: You're in charge of the singles today. Host a party and draw names, then each person then sends their recipient flowers, chocolates, lingerie -- whatever it is lovers buy each other. Kindred spirits unite!
