Horoscope for Sunday, August 9, 2020

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 2:30 to 8:30 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the moon moves from Aries into Taurus.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today is more tense. Oh yeah. People are more grouchy and critical, which means your relations with authority figures (bosses, parents and the police) are stiff and more strained. Consider this an opportunity to practice patience.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Yesterday was a feel-good day. Today not so much. Things are not as lighthearted as they were yesterday. Be smart and avoid controversial subjects like politics, religion and racial issues when talking to others because that will just be a bummer.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You might feel at odds with someone, especially if you are sharing something or discussing an inheritance or making a decision about how to spend an allocated amount of money. Someone in power will block you. (Like, what’s with that?)

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Relations with parents, bosses, partners and spouses as well as close friends are dicey. Someone’s throwing shade on you. Or maybe they think you have an attitude? Whatever — you get the picture. Keep your head down and your powder dry.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Expect difficulty working with coworkers or trying to do whatever you’re trying to do because something will oppose you. Things will not flow as easily as you would like. Therefore, give yourself extra room to encounter the unexpected. Be prepared. (This is not your first rodeo.)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You might encounter difficulty with your kids or with a romantic partner. You might think people are stingy or you might feel stingy yourself? That’s OK. Always forgive yourself and love yourself. We all have shortcomings — it goes with the territory.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Do what you can to keep things smooth with partners, close friends and family members because today it’s easy for things to go off the rails. (In a New York minute.) Someone might be critical, or they could be on your case. Nobody likes this. (I’m with you on that.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Health concerns and perhaps even increased responsibilities related to a pet or your job or a task that you’re trying to do could be frustrating. Hey, Rome wasn’t built in a day. Cope as best you can. You are a strong sign.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Difficulties with kids, romantic partners and sports colleagues will be classic. Criticisms and power struggles will be par for the course. (Isn’t this fun?) But you can use these challenges to spin a new reality. Bring something positive to the table. (You’re good at this.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Your relations with family members, especially a female relative, might be challenged. When it comes down to it, this is probably an ego battle — a test of wills. Hey, you need this like a fish needs a bicycle. Do not take the bait. Be gracious.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Verbal power struggles are classic. But hey, you have to ask yourself what do you win? You might have the victory (if you will) but do you want this at the cost of a relationship with siblings, relatives or a neighbor? Get real — of course you don’t. Be reasonable with everyone. (Your big strength.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Money squabbles might create friction with someone. Money is a very sensitive subject. Did you know that people are more private about their finances than they are about their sex life? Wait till let next week for these discussions.

If Your Birthday Is Today
