Georgia Nicols horoscopes for Aug. 24, 2016

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or big decisions from 2:30 p.m. until 6:45 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the Moon moves from Taurus into Gemini.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Although you want to work hard today, you encounter obstacles and challenges from others, especially authority figures. Don’t lose your cool, which you might be tempted to do. Just chalk this day up to “one of those days.” You win some, you lose some.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

If you have financial disputes with someone, today is not the day to try to resolve them. Others will not be cooperative. In fact, you might encounter tougher challenges than you even expected! Accept the fact that this is not the day to discuss shared property and such.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Relations with partners and close friends are testy today. (Curious choice of words. In other words, do not test them!) It’s very easy for someone to get your goat today because they are so irritating. On top of that, you probably have to seethe in silence.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is a tough day at work. Your efforts seem to be two steps forward, one step back. (Like, what’s with that?) It is discouraging. Don’t ask for permission for anything from an authority figure because that won’t be good news. Oy vey.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You might have increased responsibilities with children today or a tougher challenge. Even social occasions that are intended to be fun might turn out to be more work than you had anticipated. (Yeah, we went on a picnic — but Madeline forgot the food basket and we had a flat tire.)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Things are tough at home today. You might be frustrated with a family member or with whatever is happening at home — or a bit of everything! Your dealings with older family members and parents are rough. Others block your ideas. Oh well.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

The power of positive thinking is a wonderful thing, but today it just ain’t there. Therefore, cope as best you can. Transportation delays and difficulties in dealing with siblings, neighbors and relatives will be par for the course. Good luck.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Obstructions to your financial plans are likely today. Whatever you try to do is blocked! Even simple cash transactions. Plus whatever occurs will probably annoy you. But the real annoying thing is you can’t do anything about it. Stay chill.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Although you might encounter obstacles today and feel annoyed with others, you can use this stress to focus on work that requires discipline, energy and careful attention to detail. This way you will actually make headway.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Whatever work you do that is alone or behind the scenes will be best today because other people will just get in the way. Go off by yourself to get things done if you have this luxury of choice. It’s a good day for working with metals, steel, iron and cutting instruments. But don’t cut yourself.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Your dealings with friends and groups will be challenging today. In part, you feel betrayed or blocked by others when you had hoped for their support. Don’t be disappointed and don’t be discouraged. Life is just hard today. Wait for another day.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is not the day to ask parents or bosses for permission or approval because their response will be, “Talk to the hand.” They’re not interested. In fact, if you get in their way they may pile on more work. Yikes! “Run away! Run away!”

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Alex O’Loughlin (1976) shares your birthday today. You appear self-sufficient despite a hidden vulnerability. You are charming and sociable and have a way of standing out from others. You truly love beauty. Great news! You are now heading into one of the most powerful years of your life — a time of accumulation. Whatever you have done in the past will now ripen because it’s your time of fruition.
