Daily Horoscopes by Jill Goodman

TODAY: Current influences are reinforcing the notion that - rather than coming up with yet another logical, rational, intellectual reason that [your scheme here] could be less than stellar - you should come up with an incentive program that encourages you to take a crack at it. On the count of three: The only ones who never fail are the ones who never try. Sound familiar?
YOUR BIRTHDAY: You know what they say about a change being as good as a rest ... An idea to line your pockets or advance your spiritual, emotional or psychological development could have real possibilities. So rather than debating yourself to distraction over whether to alter the status quo (should I or shouldn't I? does s/he love me, does s/he love me not?), give it a go.

If you’re in the mood to break a pattern, modify a routine, try a new approach to an old dilemma, change the program, etc. have at it. For the record, this has less to do with what others are suggesting you should do and more with what you’d like to do given half a chance.
TAURUSFriday, August 17, 2018
Should you opt to invest the effort, you can launch a charm offensive and get somebody to eat out of our hand, especially re: outstanding property, financial or family set-ups. Thus, the million dollar questions: How badly do you want your way, and (if the answer is “a lot!”) what exactly did you say you were waiting for?
GEMINIFriday, August 17, 2018
Ah, optimism… Rational Master Mercury is tickling harmony-loving Venus, and you may be of the mind that an as-yet-unresolved matter could actually sort out in your favor. Use this wisp of inspiration to fortify your faith, and treat family and friends to a rousing rendition of “accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative, latch on to the affirmative, etc.!”
CANCERFriday, August 17, 2018
Take advantage of alluring Venus amusing kinetic Mercury by insisting to yourself that the glass is at least half-full. Yes, even if the topic is somewhat sensitive (or volatile), and yes, even if you need to spend a good part of the day measuring the liquid level in the vessel to justify having adopted this position.
LEOFriday, August 17, 2018
Helpful hint: Your charisma is one of your most potent secret weapons/tools, and may be quite useful if employed in one of your current interactions. Furthermore, peaceable Venus is agreeing with articulate, expressive, intellectually fearless Mercury, presenting yet another argument for making the most of your smile, twinkle and wit to achieve an objective.
VIRGOFriday, August 17, 2018
Deciding to push harder (make follow up calls, remind employee/employer/agent/lover of your existence) may not be the answer. So despite the fact that you might wish to (immediately) demonstrate your devotion to a cause or project, as well as your reliability, a word: The relevant party may not be particularly focused, and therefore your performance could be wasted.
LIBRAFriday, August 17, 2018
Follow ye olde bliss, whatever this entails. Mercury is waving at Mistress Venus and if you i.e. feel like going to the movies, playing hooky, fly fishing, acquiring those to-die for jeans on sale, running the dog, having latte with a friend or investigating the mysteries of the universe, then nothing should prevent you from doing so.
SCORPIOFriday, August 17, 2018
While you are minding your own business and doing your thing today, a solution or new approach to an extant (mayhaps vexing?) dilemma could enthusiastically pop out of a cake. Thank charming Venus for being on such decent terms with Mercury, the planet of ideas, and as they say in the trade, take the money and run.
SAGITTARIUSFriday, August 17, 2018
Strategy note: Presuming that you have a sense of your direction (which survey and Mercury-Venus says you do) the larger issue now becomes the most effective manner to move things along in an orderly – and shall we say swifter? – manner without hitting any inconveniently placed icebergs as you endeavor to set the speed record from Southampton-New York.
CAPRICORNFriday, August 17, 2018
Experience (as they say) is a great teacher. So how about letting it be your guide – in addition to using your innate intelligence and acquired knowledge – to keep from being astounded by the “discovery” that a person, situation or arrangement (that has behaved consistently since the dawn of civilization) is once again playing according to type?
AQUARIUSFriday, August 17, 2018
Persuasive bunny alert: With Mercury entertaining Venus your ideas could have a certain glitter (or brilliance) and, if you’re so inclined, you could easily convince the good citizens of Newcastle to accept a supersized coal delivery. However, before you make your pitch, ask yourself if this is really the best venue in which to employ your magic touch.
PISCESFriday, August 17, 2018
Keep your [romantic, social, personal, professional] life, project, or chili simmering, and it will eventually come together. More to the point, should its current flavor be not as full-bodied as you might like, logical Mercury and creative Venus recommend that you take the long view before chucking it out and deciding to start again from scratch.
