Aries Daily horoscope

Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Monday August 28

Mind your wallet, Aries, and go easy on the spending, even if you’re using AfterPay. Money could get a little funny between now and January 27, and we’re not talking Amy-Schumer-style. Today, disruptive Uranus slips into its annual retrograde, backing up through Taurus and your second house of work and finances. Because some unexpected expenses could crop up, plan ahead by cutting back on your spending now. Feeling restless at your current gig? Retrogrades rule the past, so reach out to an old boss or colleague and—discreetly!—see if they might have an opening for someone with your unique skill set.

Taurus Daily horoscope

Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Monday August 28

If you’re pondering a renegade move, Taurus, stop yourself in your tracks! Today, unpredictable Uranus turns retrograde until January 27, and since it’s backing up through YOUR sign, you’ll want to tone down the bluster before it burns down bridges that need to stay intact. Before you shoot off that blunt email or send that racy Snapchat, think through possible ramifications. When in doubt, do…nothing! Steamrolling ahead is not your best strategy for the next five months. Better to retreat a little and reflect on your grander goals. With tech-savvy Uranus off-course, update the security settings on your apps and consider a home VPN to guard your sensitive data against a hack.

Gemini Daily horoscope

Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Monday August 28

Slow down and turn inward? We realize that’s not your usual speed, Gemini, but as high-minded Uranus turns retrograde in your twelfth house of introspection until January 27, your psyche is the most interesting “venue” in town. Some Twins will use this time to deepen their meditation practice or work on their volume of poetry. But if you’ve been veering into any self-destructive habits, it’s time to make a U-turn before the retrograde pulls you further off the wagon. The happiness you seek isn’t found at the bottom of a martini glass—or in the arms of a part-time lover. Instead of self-medicating, turn to therapy, coaching or energy healing to strengthen your inner resolve and find long-lasting happiness.

Cancer Daily horoscope

Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Monday August 28

We don’t usually have to tell an intimate Cancer to tighten up the radius of your inner circle. But that advice is especially salient today as volatile Uranus turns retrograde in your collaborative zone until January 27. While you love people who wear their hearts on their sleeves (no guesswork for you!), you can also get swept into the role of the rescuer, clocking hours as their unpaid “therapist.” Over the next five months, back off from people who continually self-destruct while refusing to change their own harmful behavior. Meanwhile, reconnect with a soulful squad who can help you elevate. You are influenced by the company you keep!

Leo Daily horoscope

Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Monday August 28

You’ve been charging full speed ahead at work, Leo, but when’s the last time you stopped to consider whether you’re still interested in those same goals? Today, progress-driven Uranus turns retrograde in Taurus, temporarily slowing progress in your tenth house of career until January 27. Over the next five months, seriously review where you’re headed—and whether you still like that destination! Don’t stay the course just because you’ve invested time in it. Better to revamp your long-term strategy and shift gears now than waste more precious time. Love your work? Research technology and AI that can help you work smarter, not harder.

Virgo Daily horoscope

Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Monday August 28

You’re the zodiac’s uncompromising realist, Virgo, but even you can float into the clouds sometimes. Bring it back down to Earth today as innovator Uranus spins into its annual five-month retrograde. As the celestial thought leader backs up through your ninth house of study, travel and entrepreneurship until January 27, you might take one of your big ideas back to the drawing board for a serious review. Retrogrades are an opportunity to refine your strategy and adjust course if it’s warranted. You may decide to go back to school, explore new territory or brush up on some technical or marketing skills. Got a book or essay to write? Heady Uranus’ retrograde can give you the discipline to finally sit down and pour your ideas onto the page.

Libra Daily horoscope

Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Monday August 28

Get ready to process some Big Feelings, Libra! Heady Uranus spins into its annual five-month retrograde today, putting you in a philosophical groove until January 27. And because it’s moving backward through Taurus and your eighth house of intimacy and strong emotions, one or two personal relationships could be the focus of your emotional excavation. You’ve been keeping it together admirably, but in the weeks ahead, a tsunami of suppressed feelings could sweep you away. What you DON’T want to do is unleash a torrent of anger, jealousy or possessiveness on your S.O. or a close friend. Keep a journal in your bag—and your supporters on active DM threads! Think of the pain you feel as a cloud cover. The sunlight is still there; you just have to wait for this to blow over in order to see it.

Scorpio Daily horoscope

Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Monday August 28

Fasten your seat belt, Scorpio: Relationships are going to get a little bumpy over the next five months as volatile Uranus turns retrograde in Taurus until January 27. As the disruptive planet backs up through your seventh house of partnerships, you may find it challenging to get on the same page as the people you share your life with. More frustrating? The choppiness could come out of the blue, like a squall you didn’t know was brewing. But don’t panic! Though it won’t be fun or easy for your deeply sensitive sign, it will shine a light on issues that need attention. A dispassionate approach is necessary to get through the storms. Plan to call regular timeouts, and don’t attempt to sort out conflict in the heat of the moment.

Sagittarius Daily horoscope

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Monday August 28

Do your very best to get stress under control, Sagittarius, even if that means becoming a meditation devotee. Erratic Uranus turns retrograde in Taurus, flowing back through your systematic sixth house until January 27. Work will be busy and demanding, but if you don’t have a solid structure in place for staying on top of the flow, the details alone could do you in. Rule number one: Don’t try to keep everything in your head. Get some good tracking apps—or assistants—and share the workload. Be aware that normally dependable helpers might drop the ball during this transit, so when something is super-important, make sure you have a Plan B lined up.

Capricorn Daily horoscope

Capricorn (December 22-January 19) daily horoscope for Monday August 28

Fame or notoriety? Today, when disruptive Uranus turns retrograde in your fifth house of drama, it might be hard to tell where that line should be drawn. Under normal circumstances, you’re not a diva, but with this chaotic planet in reverse until January 27, you might not realize that your demands are making things difficult for others. Your best Rx for these next five months is regular decompression. Spend time doing YOU, and delve into a cathartic creative outlet. You won’t be able to switch off your love light, but keep it dim enough so you don’t attract any energy vampires.

Aquarius Daily horoscope

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Monday August 28

Home sweet…headache? Disruptive Uranus turns retrograde in Taurus and your domestic fourth house until January 27, stirring up some good ol’ family drama. With your ruling planet off-duty for five months, try not to fan the flames by bringing up ancient (and should-be-buried-by-now) issues. If there’s an unresolvable problem—especially with a relative or roomie—let it be. Distract yourself and redirect your attention to things you can control. How about a little bedroom makeover—or an earnest search for your own space?

Pisces Daily horoscope

Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Monday August 28

Open mouth, insert bejeweled flip-flop? If you don’t want to wind up eating your words (let alone your footwear), think long and hard before you speak, Pisces. With disruptive Uranus turning retrograde in Taurus and your communication house until January 27, your teasing jabs could hit below the belt. Friends, co-workers and siblings may put more demands on your time, and you’ll need to set clear boundaries. But consider that your independent nature might also come across as a little too “my way or the highway.” Work harder to cooperate—and don’t just preach at people. Ask questions and listen.
