In the Stars
Your Horoscope: Friday, August 28, 2009
Leo: As a luxury-loving Leo, you appreciate the finer things in life and crave a more indulgent lifestyle than most. Today, you’ll be even more self-indulgent than you usually are, especially when it comes to pleasures of a sensual nature. Surprise your special someone by planning an extravagant evening for just the two of you. Listening to some excellent music with your lover while sipping champagne is the perfect prelude to a gourmet dinner by candlelight this evening.
Virgo: Today is excellent for wrapping up any pesky tasks around the house or tying up any loose ends related to a creative project. You’ll be able to focus best during the morning, especially when it comes to domestic considerations such as cleaning out the hall closet or going through that pile of mail sitting on the kitchen table. This afternoon, you’ll be creatively inspired so spend time with an artistic project then. This evening, no matter how difficult it may be, you must make time for your romantic partner. You must forget about your work for a while and enjoy yourself tonight.
Libra: You are slightly stressed out this morning because you have so many things to do in so little time. Don’t get down if you feel that you haven’t achieved all that you’d hoped to this evening. It is OK if you end up not doing what you set out to do today; being flexible is the best approach to today’s energies. Later tonight, heed the wise words of a family member. He or she may have some very valuable advice on how to approach and achieve your future aspirations.
Scorpio: Today is a day when emotions run deep. You’ll need to learn to let go of unnecessary habits that only hold you back from what you truly want most out of life. If you continue to make excuses for yourself you realize that you will never accomplish your dreams and desires. This afternoon, don’t sulk at home trying to figure out all the answers to every question you have about your future. Instead, go out and enjoy nature: Take a walk through the park or go for a jog on the beach. Only by letting go will you find the answers you are so desperately searching for.
Sagittarius: Today is a great day to simply take it easy, rest and relax. You’ll most likely want to spend time at home alone. There is a slightly clouded atmosphere you’ll need to contend with, so most likely you won’t be as productive as you’d like to be. Rather than struggle to accomplish domestic chores and any other work you had planned for today, leave it for another day and have fun instead. Don’t make plans; just follow your heart and take the day as it goes. Going with the flow will bring you the most joy today.
Capricorn: The early morning guarantees an indulgent mood; but only give in to your whims if you can afford to! Stay home and plan that redecorating you’re dying to get done; your natural aesthetic sense is extra keen right now, especially when it comes to your abode. The moon enters you Sun sign, Capricorn, today, making you extremely imaginative and creative all day and weekend long. You may decide to do some shopping this weekend; avoid making impulsive or overindulgent purchases; it would be best to consider all your options first.
Aquarius: An unexpected visit from an old friend surprises you this morning. You’ll welcome him or her into your home, but inside you may be seething with anger because of what a busy day you had planned. Rather than resent his or her imposition, politely suggest that you choose another time to get together. However, if at all possible, see if you can figure out a different day to take care of your errands. You’ll have a great time catching up and hanging out with your long-lost friend this weekend; you can do your chores another time!
Pisces: Today partnerships are nicely accented. You are more emotional than usual, and this evening there is a tendency to fly off the handle. This afternoon you may experience some conflict between what you are feeling and what you are thinking. Go with your intuition. This afternoon is a good time to communicate what you are feeling to a loved one. Late tonight, emotions are especially volatile.
Aries: This morning your innermost feelings about a romance will be illuminated. You may decide to keep your feelings to yourself, although discussing them with your special someone could be just what you need. This evening, your honey may express that he or she is feeling neglected by your self-absorption. Be sympathetic and sensitive to your partner’s emotional needs, but don’t make promises that you cannot keep.
Taurus: As a loyal Taurus, you are an extremely faithful and loving friend. And you expect the same in return. However, your expectations are at times so high that you are constantly let down by others. You may recognize this and learn to accept people’s limitations in order to have more realistic and fulfilling relationships. This evening, take the time out to show your close friends your appreciation for all their support and love.
Gemini: Today there is so much going on that you may find it difficult to concentrate on anything for very long. This afternoon you may feel the urge to get away from everyone and have some time to yourself to really delve into your subconscious. Tonight is the perfect time to spend some quality time alone just contemplating your deepest thoughts. Some serious self-examination and reflection this evening will go a long way.
Cancer: Prepare yourself for miscommunication and confusion this morning; you must be extremely clear in everything you say and do. A surprise visit by a close friend or loved one this afternoon may also throw you off guard. Don’t worry; as long as you are mellow and take it easy all the surprises are a lot less troublesome than you thought. This evening, you’ll experience a surge of self-confidence, making it the perfect time to socialize or spend time with a new romantic interest.
