Love Horoscopes – August 25, 2013
Aries: The energy to do what it takes to get what you want is what it’s about today. Seek out things are less of a struggle to obtain rather than go after something just for the thrill of the challenge. One easy mark today will be your love life. You can transform it today by simply talking. The energy of the day creates opportunities that will be mutually beneficial but there is a catch, you have to know what your own intentions are for this relationship. If you want to hang onto the power in the partnership, then you can do so by manipulating words. If you are willing to change, you can heal with words also. The choice is yours. Commitments begun now will turn out well and satisfying for all. Go on, take a risk and enjoy the rewards of your efforts.
Taurus: Right now you are at an interesting and thought-provoking point in your life. Do not focus on what has gone wrong, use this energy to give yourself a second chance. Your eyes are now open, you can make the changes needed and this is your chance to do so. It is no good beating around the bush; you would be better off getting to the heart of the matter. For many of you emotions, perhaps coming from another person or event, are now in disharmony to your dreams and goals. This energy can stifle any imagination you may have, or the changes you want to make. If it does get that far it will result in an emotional confrontation. Try to find out what brought out this confrontation and see if you can deal with it or it needs to be let go.
Gemini: The power of words today can really make the difference in your romantic life. But do not forget that one rose can have as the same impact on someone as a dozen if you’re trying to get a message across. If you are going to make any changes, you will need both action and words to help you do this. Where you are coming from is an important issue, and you may be causing disappointment. Finding common ground and giving each other equal footing will make things much better. Compromising is the answer. Now don’t assume that you need to be extravagant today to show your sweetheart that you care. Even a post it note saying I love you place in strategic locations can bring more than a smile to your relationship.
Cancer: You do need to come out of your shell today and try and do something constructive about your situation. This is a good time to take care of emotional issues you may be having with the one you are involved with. Hiding away won’t make anything better. Working through them now will allow you to move on past any barriers you’ve built because of these issues. The energy of the day brings you a golden opportunity to speak your mind, if you can bear to be open and honest. Take some time to look ahead at the next few days to see how quickly you can follow through with any plans you are considering. Don’t try and coerce your partner with feelings of guilt, or overpower them, as you both need to be able to speak from the heart.
Leo: You need to use the power of conversation today to get the ball rolling in your love life. It can far too easy to simply push your way through any confrontation and make what you want happen, but right now you’ll find that can be a losing strategy in any of your relationships. The more you shove the more resistance you’ll get back and you two will get nowhere. You and your partner can find the perfect arrangement if you can be prepared to give to each other, rather than taking. This will give you faster results than arguing. Back off for awhile is going to be the best strategy and the problem will more than likely fade away. By the end of the day you will have a better understanding of why certain difficult incidents have been happening to you lately.
Virgo: You will have the chance to do something you secretly love, playing psychoanalyst. You can use your love of analyzing and the need for everything to be copacetic, to improve the atmosphere within your own relationship. Take the time to objectively look at how you feel, what your loved one has said they feel and how you two can bring it together. Once this is done, sit back and admire your handy work as your efforts will have made relations much better between the two of you. Your need for approval is also strong today. You are valued but need confirmation that you are a part of something special. Of course, people are not mind readers and may not realize your needs. Go ahead, drop a few hints and you’ll get the affirmations you need.
Libra: If you are attached there is a discussion you need to have that you’ve been avoiding. What may make matters worse is that your loved one knows it and is trying to avoid it as well. You are going to have to bite the bullet and come out with it, whatever it is. Bringing it out now is much better than holding it all in as it is making your life almost unbearable in the process. If you are unattached, this is an excellent time to be out and about meeting people. The energy of the day has created significant opportunities to make new connections, exchange information, and maybe even learn something innovative through a meeting or chance encounter. Any form of communication that you initiate will be productive to any of your relationships at this time.
Scorpio: You may be having problems with your lover or close friend. You two are working through a very difficult subject which will be heading towards a very delicate and intimate conversation. During this process, you will learn a lot from your own reactions and theirs. It will not be easy but the end result will make it all worth it. This is also a good time for social activities and for hanging out with friends you are not in limbo with. There is a friendly, cooperative, harmonious energy to the interactions you have now. Leave the heavy discussions at home; do not want to focus on any dry or practical matters. Simply sharing a pleasant time with someone is what you need to help alleviate some of the stress you are under.
Sagittarius: At this time you are more sensitive to the feelings and needs of others around you, especially if you are in a romantic relationship. This compassion may tempt you to tell a few people some truths about themselves but don’t do this unless you ready to hear some about yourself as well. Rather than create drama, just talk from your heart about what you really feel, not what you think you should be feeling. There really is a big difference between the two, and being mindful of this could improve your attitude as well as theirs. Keep an eye on your heart today as it’s easy for you to give generously of yourself because you can empathize strongly with others. People may try and take advantage of your values at this time.
Capricorn: There is a level of honesty and candid conversation you have always found to be rather disturbing. To you it often symbolizes disruption or stress because of hurt feelings and awkwardness. However, today and incident may occur where you realize that sometimes speaking so openly just has to be done. Once you do it, you will see that it is not so bad and your partner will probably be glad to talk about this particular subject matter as well. It is something they have wanted to resolve but just hadn’t figured out how to broach the subject with you. Oddly enough, all of this blunt yet sincere conversation will heal your bruised relationship. Afterwards you will be in the mood to relax and enjoy you now comfortable surroundings.
Aquarius: You are feeling this instinctive need to be powerful and in control. You are itching to be the one pulling the strings and calling the shots. The problem with that is the current planetary alignment and the energy it is producing. It will likely force you to look at yourself rather closely and right now you are not ready or able to face up to what you might see. Your partner, though, is entirely willing to go to great lengths to point out what you should see as they are likely at their wits end. See what truly needs seeing and then discard the rest. Besides this is happening, try to keep your need to be the dominate one in check. Just make sure you don’t take your control issues so far that your partner feels smothered, adding more to their issues with you.
Pisces: Minor annoyances and others’ idiosyncrasies may aggravate you more than usual today. You could be more temperamental, impassioned and inclined to act on the dictates of emotion and desire rather than reason… you will just be cranky today. The planetary configuration is bringing you to the point where you can no longer remain silent about a certain subject. You can no longer hide behind a mask of smiling pleasantries; the need to keep it real will overwhelm you. This will put you in a fighting mood so take a few deep breathes and hang on, but not to someone else’s throat! Say it like it really is – whatever it is. When it’s over, the difficulties melt away before your eyes, and you feel healed within and without.
