Your daily astrology for Friday, August 17, 2018

Aries

The influence of the planetary aspects will bring an end to any lethargy you've been feeling, Aries. It's an excellent day to head outside and do something active. Gardening or landscaping can make great use of your energy and creativity. Fresh air and physical exertion will benefit your health. Even if you have to work today, there's always the evening to enjoy.

Taurus

Take charge of your health today, Taurus. You'll likely wake up feeling energetic. Take advantage of the energy boost from the planetary movements to actively do things that maintain your sense of well-being. Consider emotional and spiritual aspects of your health. Sit outside in the fresh air. Take a walk, do some gardening, engage in something creative and physical.

Gemini

If you saw something in a craft shop or art studio that you'd like to buy but can't afford, consider making it, Gemini. Even if you don't think you're artistic, you could surprise yourself if you try. There are resources for novice crafters. They can give you the needed support and instructions. Don't dismiss your ability. Explore this avenue and see about finding a creative niche.

Cancer

It's the perfect day to head outside, Cancer. You'll likely be feeling positive and energetic, and the fresh air, sunshine, and physical activity may be long overdue. Even if this is a workday, make the most of your breaks and lunch hour by walking. This evening could be the opportune time to get together with friends.

Leo

It won't be surprising if you're frustrated with a close friend or partner who's far less ambitious than you, Leo. The energy in the air can emphasize your dynamic ways of reaching goals and achieving success. Others who are passive or fearful may be difficult for you to understand. Yet people have to do things in ways that are best for them. Try to be patient.

Virgo

See about using your good relationships with friends and loved ones to get group activities going today, Virgo. You're probably feeling great, and the idea of socializing appeals to you. See about inviting people over for supper or cards. If you're feeling especially lively, some sports may be just the ticket to get you moving. Do whatever it takes to have fun and get some fresh air.

Libra

If you lack a regular exercise routine, Libra, today's a great day to remedy that. Exercise doesn't have to exhaust you or hurt. Even activities like walking or yoga are excellent ways to stay healthy. Play a sport that appeals to you and you combine fun with exercise. Even dancing is a fantastic means of exercise. Find something that works for you.

Scorpio

Put your ambition into action today, Scorpio. The day's planetary aspects should find you feeling energetic and positive, so take steps to achieve your goals. Nothing will happen if you don't actively pursue them. The years can pass quickly. You don't want to be sitting in a rocker wondering "what if." Trust yourself and do what it takes. Everything starts with that first step.

Sagittarius

Don't hesitate when it comes to taking on a project or making plans today, Sagittarius. Extra energy will complement your organizational skills, making a perfect combination for handling almost anything. Write down your plans and goals to help stay focused. Get rid of things you never use. Consider donating these items, since there's probably someone who needs them.

Capricorn

Today should go well for you, Capricorn. Expect to feel a renewed energy and fresher perspective, especially concerning anything work related. Make the most of this by finishing projects that have been stalled or organizing your desk or closets. Feel confident that you can handle any task quickly. When everything is taken care of, make plans for a little recreation. You deserve it.

Aquarius

Today you may feel very creative and ambitious, Aquarius. You might want to use this energy to work on an artistic project, or you may choose to channel it into such activities as organizing your home or workspace. If you plan for it, there should be plenty of time to do both if you have a mind to. Make the most of the day.

Pisces

Don't be surprised if you feel super today, Pisces. Chances are good that you'll enjoy renewed physical strength, with energy to spare. It might be a good day to tackle any projects that require muscle. Perhaps there are household repairs that need tackling or furniture to move. You might want to go to the gym. Whatever the activity, this is a good day to go for it with gusto.
