Daily Horoscopes by Jill Goodman

TODAY: Now what?! Unpredictable Uranus recently started a five-month retrograde in tenacious Taurus. Strategy suggestion: Keep your eye fixed on the prize or destination, and be disciplined about focusing on the possibilities ("I'll finally have incentive to get my driver's license") rather than on the potential drawbacks ("How am I going to pay for all those taxis into the city now that I'm out here in the 'burbs?!!")
YOUR BIRTHDAY: Approach an outstanding and admittedly tricky (or at the very least not simple) creative, romantic, or family matter briskly and with confidence – rather than treating it like a cobra poised to strike. You're slated to discover that, to your shock, surprise and delight, you can actually make some significant headway with it. Yup, without having to be airlifted to the nearest clinic for anti-venom.

While your impatience to get going is understandable (and may indeed be fully justified), remember: Process has its place, and even that august and ancient city in Italy failed to be constructed in a single 24-hour period. And, if you do care about the fundamental health of your project or entity, little will be gained by rushing it.
TAURUSSaturday, August 17, 2019
Focus, focus, focus. This is one of those situations where, in the enthusiasm and relief of realizing that life isn't going to be static forever, you could (unintentionally, but the net effect would be the same) leave out a crucial component, and only discover it when it's too late to do anything useful about it.
GEMINISaturday, August 17, 2019
It may be somewhat challenging to organize your routines to accommodate a surplus of [your desire here], even though you've been telling everybody that [your desire here] is what you want. Still, this shouldn't been construed as the go-ahead to refuse a super-sized delivery of planetary largesse on the grounds that you're not ready yet.
CANCERSaturday, August 17, 2019
Current influences continue to make it incredibly tempting to draw lines in the sand, or make threats to better get your needs met or advance your agenda. But, they're also failing to sufficiently highlight the downside of this methodology, chiefly that it has a marked tendency to boomerang back and pop you square in the face when you least expect it.
LEOSaturday, August 17, 2019
These planets are stirring the coals like crazy. And while any disruptions or delays to the official plan are ultimately for the best, it may initially be difficult to accept that what looks for all the world like an upheaval, inconvenience, or disappointment will end up working out in your favor, or being an improvement upon the original arrangement.
VIRGOSaturday, August 17, 2019
Right now, people can't help but interpret things through an intensely emotional or sentimental lens (you're e.g. trying to talk to your attorney, who keeps saying "Darn it, somebody in the parking lot scratched my front bumper, I can't concentrate"). Ascribe it to the planets. You will likely be more forgiving - or at least tolerant - than if you don't.
LIBRASaturday, August 17, 2019
Give a hitherto intractable or complex issue a new look. These planets think there just might be another way of coping, managing, approaching, or dealing with it that satisfies the majority of those involved. Seriously: Rather than keeping it stashed in the recesses of your mind, put on your thinking cap and have another go at it.
SCORPIOSaturday, August 17, 2019
These planets are contracting to give you your commercial, financial, professional, or romantic druthers (yes, in spite of your oft-mentioned doubts regarding it ever happening in your lifetime). However! They are making absolutely no promises regarding the manner in which it emerges - and how closely this adheres to your expectations, itinerary, or officially authorized program.
SAGITTARIUSSaturday, August 17, 2019
Current influences are airing an episode entitled "Not Quite the Right Amount." To best cope, apply mass quantities of common sense and simplicity to your various interactions. And remember that no matter how much you'd like to resolve a matter now, you'll be much happier with your options a couple of days out.
CAPRICORNSaturday, August 17, 2019
For the record: The climate isn't especially conducive to harmony, understanding, amicable settlements, persuading a producer that you have a blockbuster on your hands, proposing a rent decrease, et al. And since that's probably exactly what you're after, you are strongly encouraged to refrain from anything that even vaguely resembles stubbornness or retaliatory behavior.
AQUARIUSSaturday, August 17, 2019
About that whole "my way or the highway" thing...the chances of it having the desired effect or netting the desired result are minimal. Plus, more germane to your situation: The chances are high of it engendering a grudge that is held until the oceans evaporate, the mountains crumble to dust, and the sun winks out like a broken lightbulb.
PISCESSaturday, August 17, 2019
You are likely to be pleasantly surprised by your cleverness and newfound ability to organize hitherto recalcitrant details that have been virtually impossible to budge during the last little while. Still, strategy note: Now that there is discernible momentum, try to quell any impulse to push, nag, hint, or persuade.
