The love sages usually warn against such an approach. "Don't fall in love with a person's potential!" they say. Venus has a rebuttal as she steps into the realm of Virgo: "Isn't love about bringing out the best in people?" </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). What's coming up is not nearly as quiet, so take advantage of a stretch of serenity that's yours for the taking. (If you don't claim it, it will wait for you until tomorrow. Then it expires.)<p>Updated: Wed Aug 21, 2019</p> df37738f53598586292942fa4ab5c2d5 Your Cosmic Schedule for 08/20/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/08/19/your-cosmic-schedule Tue, 20 Aug 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>According to the affecting luminaries, telling yourself what to do will go much better in the morning or, more precisely, three hours after you wake up, so long as you're waking up before noon. That's the prime time. Maximize it by telling yourself to accomplish the things that would surely be too difficult in a weaker hour &#8212; say, 4 p.m. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). If it seems like the universe is conspiring to aggravate you, then this could be a good thing, a sign that you're in the wrong place and an invitation to hop on over to "anywhere but here." <p>Updated: Tue Aug 20, 2019</p> ef6a2ec7f20064ef33a23d7819267054 Three-Act Lunar Structure for 08/19/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/08/19/three-act-lunar-structure Mon, 19 Aug 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>This Aries moon occurs in a three-act structure. It starts off by opening a window of opportunity in the realm of communication. The message here is, "If you don't ask, you don't get." Next there's a moment of difficulty involving an antagonistic angle to Saturn, buttoned up by a rather Shakespearean Jupiter alignment. "All's well that ends well." </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). When there's plenty to do but not a lot on the agenda that you're excited about, it's not time to change your attitude. It's time to change the agenda. Your attitude will follow.<p>Updated: Mon Aug 19, 2019</p> 0ea25914a018a8e6164a0ef9dfcc282c Soul-Stirring Moon for 08/18/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/08/19/soul-stirring-moon Sun, 18 Aug 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>The ocean is deep, vast and awesomely powerful, yet it is so casually manipulated by the gravity hand of the moon, scooping it this way and that like a child scoops sand in a sandbox. The soul-stirring Pisces moon would like to remind you that your soul is vast and powerful, yet moved by forces of attraction beyond your control; it's nature at work. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). The spirit of play has more to teach you about the people around you than you could possibly get from more formal discourse. Today, you'll learn a person's nature and find a point of comfortable connection. <p>Updated: Sun Aug 18, 2019</p> 7c2da925972cbdc94e23baab6b315aed The Nature of Nurturing According to Mars for 08/17/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/08/19/the-nature-of-nurturing-according-to-mars Sat, 17 Aug 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>Mars heads into Virgo for some practical nurturing. Use what experience has taught you about caring for others. Usually interaction is better than none and closeness is better than space, even if it's more difficult or irritating. The bottom line is that often people think they want to be cared for in one way, and then another way just works better.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Work comes in many forms, many of them undetectable to the ignorant eye. Wherever an outcome is expected and there's a person responsible for it, that's work.<p>Updated: Sat Aug 17, 2019</p> c2f7c2620a59013d15c461b3ebd938a7 Transit of Icky Transformation for 08/16/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/08/19/transit-of-icky-transformation Fri, 16 Aug 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p>In most animals, the process of transformation is sticky, icky, sleepy, weird, inside-out, all-encompassing and so worth it. Why should it be any different for humans? Luckily, <span class="column--highlighted-text">the shift that happens as Mercury squares Uranus during the after-party of the Pisces full moon represents more spiritual awkwardness</span> than anything physically sticky or icky. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you take it seriously &#8212; put in the practice time, devote energy to finding the right strategy, get your team together, consult with mentors to keep you on track &#8212; this caper you're planning could change everything. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). To do or to be &#8212; that is the question. You'd think doing would be harder, but it's so much easier to get comfortable with doing than it is to get comfortable with being. Note that doing is often used to avoid being. <p>Updated: Fri Aug 16, 2019</p> 1de68665ce3b459af0445bcb6e3e4b4e Outlier's Moon for 08/15/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/08/19/outliers-moon Thu, 15 Aug 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p>The Aquarius full moon energy is a mysterious fog creeping beyond the borders of usual society into outlying territories of the mind where it swirls its protection around the outsiders, misfits and iconoclasts who reside there. <span class="column--highlighted-text">Without the intellect of people who think differently, where would we be?</span> And there's at least a little strangeness in everyone. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). You need feedback. Without it, you won't know how your work and general personality are landing with other people. More importantly, you won't know what kind of people you're dealing with. Ask for a response. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your sign is keenly aware of the risks involved in taking a bull by the horns &#8212; not advisable today. To control beastliness, use the power of the herd. Wild instincts are quelled in a natural social environment. <p>Updated: Thu Aug 15, 2019</p> 31c63d7e88dda2e8b7c964b59e3bbb6c Full Moon Pre-Show for 08/14/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/08/19/full-moon-pre-show-dfa0f Wed, 14 Aug 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>There is no such thing as just another day. When the days start to blur together, that's an "error message" from life, telling you that it's time to either slow down or stop completely and reset. The sun and Venus act together like ushers offering a seat in the theater. Step inside, relax and catch your breath. The show's about to start.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). In a quiet moment, you'll notice you're missing someone &#8212; a pang that's also a gift. This is the heart space that reminds you of the importance of connection and inspires you to reach out. <p>Updated: Wed Aug 14, 2019</p> ef94eddb28db4edca56013331b5dec8e Celestial Cat Conjunction for 08/13/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/08/19/celestial-cat-conjunction Tue, 13 Aug 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>As it is in the animal kingdom, rituals and instinctive behaviors kick in wherever there's an assemblage of strangers. The social order gets worked out. You may not think you know the rules of this type of interaction, but they are embedded in your very nature. The solar conjunction to Venus in Leo favors a feral justice. Don't overthink it. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Being well-rounded, you detach from details that would bother people who didn't know as much about the world. Life is easier because you take things as general information rather than personal information. <p>Updated: Tue Aug 13, 2019</p> 363005d5c28f78bd5469262fafb1d061 Cosmic Capitalism for 08/12/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/08/19/cosmic-capitalism Mon, 12 Aug 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>A person who can't see past his or her own needs and wants is limited indeed. This kind of tunnel-vision will be crippling today, as everything worth having is gotten by means of exchange. Without knowledge of what others need and want, it's hard to come up with the correct currency. This message comes via a capitalistic Capricorn moon.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). It's one of those days when moving is more important than knowing how or where to move. Action will win over strategy. And until you try the door, you won't know if it's locked.<p>Updated: Mon Aug 12, 2019</p> 772f30f3603459d3441294a0b51a5514 Planetary DJ Scratch for 08/11/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/08/19/planetary-dj-scratch Sun, 11 Aug 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>The heavenly harmonies get interrupted with an exciting texture &#8212; a satisfying scratch, an arresting rhythm. On the very same day that Jupiter goes direct, Uranus goes retrograde, creating a kind of back and forth cosmic scrub akin to disc jockey tricks with turntables. <span class="column--highlighted-text">This is a novel and invigorating call to the dance floor of life.</span> </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). In a high-functioning relationship, you don't have to test the other person's loyalty. You know it's there. If you find yourself edging toward playing psychological games, ask yourself why. <p>Updated: Sun Aug 11, 2019</p> 4eaf6185ddf23ad8c499342388c512a8 Theme Park Sun for 08/10/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/08/19/theme-park-sun Sat, 10 Aug 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p>No one would have to set the record straight if the record were experienced in a linear fashion by all. Alas, life is not a book you can read in order or a long strip of film. Under this wild Leo sun it's more like a theme park with several entrances and exits. One never knows what people are going to choose to experience and in which order.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Like a good parent at a 5-year-old's ballet recital, applaud all effort, even the most awkward. Most people aren't even dancing. On this sort of day, all dancers deserve participation awards.</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Understanding so much nuance of human interaction can be overwhelming and even paralyzing. Forget about all the small things that can and do go wrong. Step back for a bigger picture.<p>Updated: Sat Aug 10, 2019</p> b320b0020d1872f196be1cf7c30dbbd2 relationships, Uranus, retrograde, mystery, puzzle, love match, zodiac for 08/09/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/08/19/relationships-uranus-retrograde-mystery-puzzle-love-match-zodiac Fri, 09 Aug 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p>There's a flip side to every coin. You don't have to see that side to know what it is. Were you to cover one side with a piece of duct tape, it would not create much wonder. In these last days before Uranus goes retrograde, people may not talk about the flip side of a situation, but everyone knows there is one and can make an accurate guess about it. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). You've been through trying times, and this isn't one of them. This is a "doing" time. Strike "try" from the vocabulary. You already know the right action. Take it. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You'll nurture a strong connection by simply showing up to the events that mean something to your loved ones. They will be buoyed and encouraged by your presence. <p>Updated: Fri Aug 09, 2019</p> 4ff47c998b8e1e5b7b493f79f138b21d Planetary Pressure Absorber for 08/08/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/08/19/planetary-pressure-absorber Thu, 08 Aug 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>"The weight of the mountain presses down upon a weak foundation of earth," says the iChing oracle. Luckily, this trine of Mars and Jupiter wants to absorb those pressures and will go so far as to argue that the mountain <i>is</i> the earth and the earth <i>is</i> the mountain. These aren't pressures, just challenges that come with the territory. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Dominance and aggression are poor ways to hold on to power. You'll get an example of this today as people move away from overly controlling influences and toward those who comfort and assure.<p>Updated: Thu Aug 08, 2019</p> 002a305d3ce81874932ba23a589c4337 Jupiter Gives a Lesson in Values for 08/07/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/08/19/jupiter-gives-a-lesson-in-values Wed, 07 Aug 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p>This very auspicious arrangement of the sun and Jupiter will shine a light on our values. Do you know yours? As social creatures, we give lip service to the usual hits, while our emotional energy and behavior reveal what's truer. Happiness is embracing the values we have instead of trying to adopt the ones we think we're supposed to have.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). You've a big heart, but you don't have time to give your attention to all who want it. Your system for determining where focus is best placed will get a much-needed tuneup. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Missing the mark when you're alone is hard enough. Messing up in front of people takes real guts. But if most people around you aren't even trying, any mistake you make proves that you're living better. <p>Updated: Wed Aug 07, 2019</p> f11a67551df2f8d9cadbc52756fe3604 Uranus and the Intelligence Iceberg for 08/06/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/08/19/uranus-and-the-intelligence-iceberg Tue, 06 Aug 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>Intelligence comes in many forms, so varied that our crude categories only name but a few that are at the tip of the intelligence iceberg (which those with math and science intelligence know is only the 10% visible above the water's surface.) As for our deficits, the moon/Uranus opposition suggests we work around them. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). A belief might be life-changing, but who knows? Its power is all potential power; its reality theoretical. In other words, it's not in reality. Action is what matters. Make your move. <p>Updated: Tue Aug 06, 2019</p> ec738cb8982a51a89c7075508ff7e454 Moon Urges Experience for 08/05/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/08/19/moon-urges-experience Mon, 05 Aug 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>Got shortcomings? Get more experience. While experience won't erase them, it will give you more options. While the inexperienced may know a few ways to solve a problem, the experienced will have many. Bonus: The experienced know which problem is the best one to solve, which makes all of the difference in this stage of the Libra moon. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Everyone is overprivileged in some way. If you think you don't deserve something that you have, you're probably right. But you have it anyway. So go on and keep finding ways to earn it. <p>Updated: Mon Aug 05, 2019</p> 7df29505ee8e04b962fd127a065f3df8 Moon Shows Prefrontal Favoritism for 08/04/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/08/19/moon-shows-prefrontal-favoritism Sun, 04 Aug 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>Neuroscientists suggest that the more primal part of the brain called the amygdala gets its work done at a higher speed than the consciousness held in the prefrontal cortex. If you seem to be thinking slowly, then it's likely that you're working on some higher-level function, a favorable thing to do under this intellectual Libra moon. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Fears are overcome with exposure. Not all exposure is alike though. Relax first and then face the fear. To let yourself get too wound up is counteractive to your purpose. <p>Updated: Sun Aug 04, 2019</p> 4e4d7fc783c7f64add41076d9b4f93bd Self-Check Moon for 08/03/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/08/19/self-check-moon Sat, 03 Aug 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p>New studies on the topic of decision-making suggest we are more influenced by emotion than we believe. What feels like a rational decision can be an emotional or reactive decision justified by rationale slightly and undetectably after the fact. It is not enough to try to be fair. Virgo is the moon of self-checking and trying even harder. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). You don't have to believe in a thing for it to help you. Being respectful of the ways other people believe and live puts you in the receptive attitude that attracts maximum assistance from anywhere and everywhere. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your capacity to question things is at the heart of your being. Anyone who discourages your curiosity is, in a very real way, discouraging you. Let that be a red flag &#8212; an indicator that there is something to hide. <p>Updated: Sat Aug 03, 2019</p> e2f1622252fba81da2a2f64bf8a81274 Cosmic Cat Vs. Bull for 08/02/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/08/19/cosmic-cat-vs-bull Fri, 02 Aug 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p>Some people have a personality, and some people <i> are </i> a personality, possessing a character so unmistakably their own that they've managed to eliminate any confusion as to their role. Venus in Leo squares off to Uranus in Taurus. <span class="column--highlighted-text">If this day were a person, it would be such a person, unmistakably unique and highly entertaining. </span> </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Though you can't actually try on another person's heart, following your curiosity will get you as close as possible to understanding a person's feelings, passions and drives. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Doubts set in. Does what you're doing matter? Is it adding up the way you wanted it to? This is a rabbit hole of thought that you don't want to fall into. Avoid. Strike up the band, and march right past it. <p>Updated: Fri Aug 02, 2019</p>
