Horoscope for Monday, August 12, 2019

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or important decisions after 5 p.m. The moon is in Capricorn.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This week begins with serious overtones because the moon is in Capricorn and at the top of your chart, lined up with Saturn and Pluto. (It also has a brief dance with Neptune.) Your personal affairs might be a bit public.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

If you can do something different, something out of the ordinary, it will please you because you have a desire for adventure and stimulation. Obviously, travel will appeal. If you can’t travel, then explore your own backyard. Learn something new.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Some of you are dealing with financial matters related to the government or insurance companies. Others are caught up with inheritances, shared property and estates. Get your facts because wishing doesn’t always make it so.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Discussions with partners and close friends will be practical. Someone wants to get to the bottom of things to understand what’s happening. Or maybe they want to understand what already happened? Why not give them the lowdown?

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You’re eager to work hard. You probably have a To Do list that you intend to cross off items one by one as the week progresses. It helps to make a list to stay focused. Even if you don’t do anything — at least, you made the list.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Despite the fact that there is a serious overtone to this day, you’re actually in a playful mood. You want to do something so that you enjoy yourself today — some fun and pleasure. Playful activities with kids will please you. Take a long lunch.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Recently, you have been popular and schmoozing a lot. That’s why today is the perfect day for you to catch your breath and keep a low profile. Cocoon at home and relax among familiar surroundings so that you have a chance to replenish yourself for the rest of the week.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You are determined and you’re full of energy, which is why you will communicate directly in a proactive way with whomever you meet. It’s also a good day to sell, market, teach, act, write or study. You will enjoy a short trip, especially if you take care of some business as well.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You might be serious about money matters because, of course, money matters. You might take stock of your assets — what you owe and what you own. This is wise because when it comes to money it’s always good to know exactly where you stand. Information is power.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

The moon is in your sign, which makes you more emotional than usual. However, it also makes you a bit luckier than all the other signs and so this gives you a slight advantage. When talking to others, you will be direct, maybe even pushy. (Lighten up.)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Begin this week in low gear. Ideally, you might want to work alone or behind the scenes and keep a low profile until you see which way the wind is blowing. You might also have to defer to others right now because three planets are opposite your sign. Easy does it.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

A heart-to-heart talk with a friend could be meaningful. Quite likely, you will be thinking of future goals, or at least, goals for the week ahead. You might see ways to introduce improvements to your environment, your health or your job. Bonus!

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress-model Cara Delevingne (1992) shares your birthday. You are practical, realistic and yearn for knowledge. You’re clever, optimistic and have a great sense of humor. This is a year of fast action, change and new opportunities! Expect to meet adventure and stimulating situations. You will have chances to travel and expand your world plus learn new things. Embrace change. Let your personal freedom be your goal this year.
