Today's Horoscopes

  • Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19)

    Horoscope for Wed, Aug 20, 2014 Someone tries your patience today when they behave like a boring old fuddy-duddy or they persist in being as doom-laden as possible. For instance, you'll offer them a biscuit and they'll give you a lecture on saturated fats, or you'll mention your plans for the house and they'll suck their teeth and look doubtful. Let them get on with it but don't be affected by it.
  • Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)

    Horoscope for Wed, Aug 20, 2014 You've got a lot on your plate today and it's getting you down. This could have an impact on your health, making you feel tired or lethargic, and possibly even making you susceptible to any germs that happen to be flying about. If you're really struggling to get everything done in time you may have to ask for help or accept that you can't work miracles and something's got to give.
  • Gemini (May 21 - Jun 21)

    Horoscope for Wed, Aug 20, 2014 If you ask someone's advice, be prepared for them to sound positively gloomy. They're taking the worst possible view of everything and will quickly infect you with their miserable view of the world. This isn't a good day to spend money because you'll suffer awful pangs of guilt afterwards, even if you know full well that you can afford to have a splurge.
  • Cancer (Jun 22 - Jul 22)

    Horoscope for Wed, Aug 20, 2014 Your domestic life leaves something to be desired today, thanks to the low-key atmosphere. Maybe someone is feeling depressed and their mood is affecting everyone they meet, or perhaps you're the one who's down in the dumps. Either way, you won't help the situation by brooding on it, feeling sorry for yourself or taking out your feelings on whoever happens to be around.
  • Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 22)

    Horoscope for Wed, Aug 20, 2014 You're taking a serious view of life today and have a tendency to worry about all sorts of things. Try not to keep these thoughts to yourself because they will only depress you and make you believe that things are worse than they really are. Instead, either confide in someone you trust or pour everything out on paper. You'll soon feel better.
  • Virgo (Aug 23 - Sep 22)

    Horoscope for Wed, Aug 20, 2014 A social event could end in disappointment today. It might not be nearly as much fun as you'd hoped, or someone who's essential to your enjoyment can't be there. There could also be delays in getting things off the ground, or maybe you simply aren't in a sociable mood. Try not to see all this as a total disaster, and be philosophical about what happens.
  • Libra (Sep 23 - Oct 23)

    Horoscope for Wed, Aug 20, 2014 Why the long face? You're feeling rather downcast and lackluster right now, and everything seems to involve too much effort. Do your best to face up to whatever is wrong, and also to view it in a rational light. That's because it is highly likely that you're making mountains out of molehills, and allowing even minor snags to get you down. A short break might help.
  • Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22)

    Horoscope for Wed, Aug 20, 2014 Examine all your appliances today and make sure that they're in good working order. It might be a good idea to check that your car is behaving itself or that your computer hasn't developed any strange glitches. If you find that something's wrong, either get it mended or replaced as soon as possible because you're bound to need it again soon.
  • Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)

    Horoscope for Wed, Aug 20, 2014 A conversation with a friend is really interesting today. You'll enjoy talking about things in depth, and you may even learn new things about one another. Grab the chance to clear up any difficulties with someone before they get any worse, even if this means giving them your abject apologies. Right now you'd rather speak from the heart than say something insincere.
  • Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)

    Horoscope for Wed, Aug 20, 2014 Someone is looking at life through very serious eyes today, which won't exactly make them a barrel of laughs. You may even suspect that they're taking some sort of perverse pleasure from being such an old misery. If you aren't careful, you might start to behave in the same way because this mood is infectious. Do your best to resist it.
  • Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)

    Horoscope for Wed, Aug 20, 2014 Have you really got the cares of the world on your shoulders? Maybe you have to plough your way through acres of work, and you don't know how you're going to do it. Perhaps you're feeling tired and defeated. If even the smallest task seems beyond you, don't lose heart. Holiday plans can be restructured, if a snag arises.
  • Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)

    Horoscope for Wed, Aug 20, 2014 The emotional temperature is below par today, so you're feeling chilly and rather sorry for yourself. Maybe a loved one is annoyed with you for some reason and they're taking it out on you by withdrawing their affection or being rather aloof. Yet you may also be sending out signals that make others want to retreat in self-defense, even if you aren't aware of what you're doing.
