Horoscope for Tuesday, August 20, 2019

Moon Alert

We have the all clear to shop and do business. The moon is in Aries.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is the second day with the moon in your sign. Although this can make you more emotional than usual, when the moon is in your sign (which happens for two days every month), it makes you a bit luckier than all the other 11 signs. Bonus!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Again, you prefer to keep a low profile. Therefore, work alone or behind the scenes, or stay at home if you can because this will feel better. Meanwhile, many of you are tackling home repairs, so it might be appropriate. Tomorrow will be a completely different day!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

A conversation with a female friend could be significant. You want to have meaningful exchanges with others now — not superficial chitchats. You have ideas and questions and you want to find someone with whom you can engage and get down to the nitty-gritty of things.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Details about your private life might be public. People are talking about you because for some reason, you’re high visibility. Just be aware of this in case you have to do some damage control. “It’s not personal. It’s strictly business.”

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Do something to satisfy your urge for a little thrill. You want some adventure and stimulation! It doesn’t have to be big — you just want to shake up your routine. Go someplace you’ve never been before, perhaps an unusual ethnic restaurant? Take a short trip if you can.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You’re keeping a low profile, which is appropriate. And today is a good day to deal with red-tape details regarding insurance issues, inheritances, taxes and debt and anything to do with shared property. You’ll feel better when you clear up some of this stuff.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

The moon is opposite your sign, which means you have to go more than halfway when you’re dealing with others. It’s not a big deal. You simply have to be more patient, tolerant and accommodating. Hey, these qualities are your stock in trade!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You will busy yourself with little errands, tasks and details ranging from shopping for personal hygiene items, to dealing with pets, to catching up on unfinished business at work. Consider it a catch-up day to make the rest of your week easier.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Today is a playful, fun-loving day! Take a long lunch. Meet friends for happy hour at the end of the day. Focus on anything that allows you to express your creativity because you are in touch with your muse, which means you will enjoy expressing your creative talents. Great date day!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Your focus is on home, family and your private life, which is why you will enjoy cocooning at home if you had your druthers. You might also have a serious talk with a parent. Even though things are low key, travel plans look appealing!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You have a strong urge for a meaningful conversation with a close friend or partner because you have something to say. It’s not exactly cards-on-the-table time, but you do want a real and meaningful exchange when talking to someone. You go first.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You’re gung ho to work hard and be productive this week. Today in particular, you are focused on cash flow, spending and financial matters. Some of you will clean, polish or repair something that you own because it’s a good day to organize your personal belongings.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Joan Allen (1956) shares your birthday. You are warm-hearted and sensitive. You are also confident and comfortable being in the limelight. Your hard work will begin to pay off this year! Therefore, start to simplify your life and focus on how to build solid foundations. Work with purpose. Physical exercise will be important, which is why you should explore any physical discipline that you enjoy.
