SHARE Horoscope for Tuesday, August 17, 2021

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making important decisions after 8:30 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the moon moves from Sagittarius into Capricorn.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today is the perfect day to travel somewhere because you need a change of scenery. Do whatever you can so that you feel a sense of adventure and stimulation. Go somewhere you’ve never been before because you will feel gratified to learn something new.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Discussions about inheritances, shared property and insurance issues will favor you. Get your ducks in a row and defend your best interests. In particular, these discussions might relate to real estate, a family business or domestic situation.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Because the moon is in a sign that is opposite your sign, you have to go more than halfway when dealing with others. This simply requires a little cooperation and tact. In two weeks, when the moon is in your sign, others will have to cooperate with you!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You might have to work on behalf of someone else because you need to perform a service or cater to their needs. Fear not. You aren’t being a martyr. This is just how things are rolling out today. Do what you can to get better organized.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is a playful, fun-loving day, which is why it’s an excellent time to explore social outings, fun activities with kids and sports events. Accept all invitations to party! You will also be productive in areas related to the entertainment world and show business.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Home and family are your top priority today. In fact, you will enjoy having a chance to cocoon at home and relax among familiar surroundings. Do whatever you can so that you have a warm feeling in your tummy. Pamper yourself.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today you have strong need to communicate to others. Not only do you want to talk to someone and of course, listen — you want to have a meaningful bond with this person. You want to discuss real things. You don’t want to dally in superficial chitchat.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Something to do with earnings, cash flow and money is on your mind today. You might be thinking of asking for a raise? Whatever occurs might involve a boss or a parent. One thing is certain, financially speaking, you can benefit from real estate this year.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Things will tend to go your way today because the moon is in your sign. Having said that, when the moon is in your sign, (this happens for 2 1/2 days every month) you become more emotional. Keep this in mind and do your best to stay chill.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You might want to withdraw from the busyness of your daily world and seek out solitude or some peace and quiet so that you can catch your breath. Now and then, it’s good to do this to get grounded. Afterward, you’ll be more ready to sally forth into your world!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is an excellent day for a heart-to-heart discussion with a female acquaintance. You might seek out this person’s advice. Possibly, they will help you in some way with your future goals? (This could be a continuation of yesterday’s conversation.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Once again, you are high visibility today, which means people notice you more than usual, especially bosses, parents, teachers and the police. (Oh yes, take notice. You might have to do some damage control.) When others are looking at you, put your best foot forward!

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Robert De Niro (1943) shares your birthday. You are highly individualistic and walk to the beat of your own drum. You are both charming and aggressive. You are also creative and imaginative. Privately, you’re a romantic. This year it’s time to loosen up and have fun! You have a strong zest for life and will enjoy schmoozing with others, which will be easy because you are more popular.
