August 14th

Aries- You may have big plans and big expectations but keep a sense of perspective. If you let your enthusiasm race too far ahead you may make a mistake that slows you right down again. Get the balance right.

Taurus- You have what it takes to succeed but there is a touch of doubt in your mind that keeps you from giving your all. What happens today will remind you that doubt is natural, and that it can also be overcome.

Gemini- For some strange reason you are finding it hard to believe in yourself but it doesn't matter. What counts is that other people believe in you, and they do. Take it easy today - you have nothing to prove.

Cancer- Someone you meet socially will praise you to the skies and tell you what a fine human being you are but your intuition warns they are not to be trusted. It's a trick to lull you into a false sense of security.

Leo- What you are worrying about is not important. Cosmic activity in the most sensitive area of your chart may make it seem as if the world is against you but it's not true. Lighten up, it's life.

Virgo- Someone in a position of power will try to force you to do something you don't agree with today but they won't succeed. Stand your ground and refuse to do anything that does not meet your own high moral standards.

Libra- It's good to be reminded of your limits and what happens over the next 24 hours will stop you in your tracks and, hopefully, balance out a mistake of some kind. Next time, don't go over the top so quickly.

Scorpio- Let your rivals and enemies have the last word today. When all is said and done all the yapping they do has very little effect, so why waste your time reacting to it? Save your energy and put it to better use.

Sagittarius- There is nothing wrong with your plans but some people will, of course, find fault with them. Ignore the critics and carry on as you are - that will annoy them far more than if you get involved in a war of words.

Capricorn- Someone you have to deal with today won't be in the best of moods but don't let their negativity rub off on you. When they see that their doom and gloom act is having no effect they will give up on it.

Aquarius- According to the planets what other people tell you is "the truth" and what is really the truth are two different things. Take everything you are told today, especially by "experts", with a large pinch of salt.

Pisces- Try not to say anything that might be taken the wrong way by people who have the power to make life tough for you. Just this once it might be better to hold your tongue than speak your mind.
