Georgia Nicols horoscopes for Aug. 22

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 2:25 p.m. until 3:45 p.m. Chicago time today. After that, the Moon moves from Scorpio into Sagittarius.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Initially today, you might feel depressed about how shared property is handled. You might feel someone is squeezing you out of your fair share. Don’t worry because this bleak view will disappear quickly. By evening, you’re tempted to overdo a fun time.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Discussions with a partner or close friend might be restricting or disappointing in some way this morning. Nevertheless, don’t let this get you down because later in the day, you’re ready to party and have a good time. Caution against overdoing things. Enough is enough.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today you’re ready to work hard because duty and orderliness are important. You want to do things right, eve though there’s an element of sober stinginess to everything this morning. Ironically, by evening, it’s just the opposite. “Let’s paint the town red!”

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Your responsibilities with children might be heavy this morning. Well, this goes with the territory, doesn’t it? Romance might also look a bit bleak. However, as the day wears on, everything lightens up to the point of being frivolous. (Don’t go overboard.)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Your home responsibilities seem oppressive or challenging this morning. Perhaps this is why you decide to party hard this evening. Leos love to party, and they have been known to be a bit extreme. Tonight is one of those nights — caution!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Conversations with others, especially siblings, relatives and daily contacts, might get you down this morning. Perhaps someone is critical of you? Bummer. Later today or this evening, you might entertain at home. If you do, you will pull out all stops. Yay!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You feel financially squeezed this morning. (Why is there always so much month left at the end of the money?) Nevertheless, this will not hold you back because by evening, you are upbeat, happy and chatting to everyone. A spontaneous short trip will please you.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You might feel a bit timid or cautious this morning because you have second doubts about something. “I’m navel lint!” Don’t worry because this feeling will pass. In fact, by evening you’re throwing your money around to have a good time. “Let’s live it up!”

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Life is hard this morning. It doesn’t have that optimistic, hopeful edge that you need. Fortunately, as the day wears on everything lightens up, and by evening, you are in serious party mode. Your motto has always been: Work hard, party hard.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Someone older might be critical of you today or place restrictions on you in some way. Don’t worry because later in the day, you won’t care. You look forward to future travel plans and a chance to kick up your heels. A fun escape is what the doctor ordered.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Discussions with authority figures are depressing this morning. People are too busy telling you what you cannot do instead of what you can do. Who needs this? Not you. That’s why you will enjoy schmoozing with friends this evening. The more, the merrier!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Do not let a serious, brooding mood that grips you this morning affect your whole day. Even if things start out with heavy restrictions, by later in the day, you will feel different. In fact, others will help you party and have a good time. Someone might pick up the tab for a fun evening, which suits you just fine!
