Your daily horoscopes for Tuesday August 29, 2023
Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Tuesday August 29
Dive in horns first or go back to the R+D board? You may not know which is smarter under today’s befuddling moon-Jupiter square. The red-spotted titan in your security-minded second house urges caution while the moon is putting the spurs to your sides and yelling giddy-up! Talk it out with a supervisor or mentor to make sure you’re not projecting your own fears or anxiety onto this. Of course, if someone else is putting too much external pressure on you, that may be a sign to wait for more info to surface.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Tuesday August 29
Got a big ask to make? Don’t just blurt it out, Bull. The personable Aquarius moon is in your career corner all day, keeping your eyes on the prize. But a square from aggrandizing Jupiter in your sign could cause you to get carried away. Even if you’re in particularly generous spirits, there may be a fine (if invisible) line between what people are willing to give and what’s too much. Vibe them out and, if possible, try to get them to put an offer on the table!
Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Tuesday August 29
You could hit on a brilliant idea for a work or creative project today, and while it’s no doubt inspired, the question is, is it viable? You may have a hard time distinguishing fantasy from clear-eyed reality, thanks to a square between the wishful Aquarius moon and Jupiter in your dreamy twelfth house. Despite your zeal to give this a test-drive, it might be better to wait a couple days to let the (fairy) dust settle. Then you’ll know whether it’s possible or not.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Tuesday August 29
Rather than force yourself to work on things you can’t wrap your brain around today, see if you can shuffle your to-do list to be optimally productive. A clash between big-picture Jupiter in your social sector and the moon in your secretive eighth house might make it challenging to analyze that quarterly report or proofread an important storyline. Pro tip: Leave the text from friends on “unread” and stay as focused as you can, working in short intense bursts. In between, take a walk to clear your head—but then hustle back to the grindstone!
Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Tuesday August 29
In your quest for career success, are you taking the not-so-little people for granted? You’ve been getting your name out there, but at what cost? Leos in relationships might need to hit pause (instead of fast forward) and give some serious love to their partner. Today is the perfect day for that, thanks to the sensitive moon in your dynamic-duos zone zapping go-getter Jupiter in your professional sector. Reach out to the folks who’ve been there for you through thick, and thin and let them know how much you appreciate their support.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Tuesday August 29
Feeling antsy? Find a productive outlet for your revved-up energy, Virgo. Your mind is a sponge, absorbing inspiration everywhere you turn. Under today’s amplifying angle between the heady Aquarius moon and supersizer Jupiter—in your adventurous ninth house, no less—you need even more stimulation than a triple shot of espresso can provide. Check in with yourself so it doesn’t play out as mischievousness. Throw yourself into a book—or how about a few installments in your OWN writing project?
Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Tuesday August 29
Poke out of your hammock and make your presence known, Libra! Groups can be draining some days, but you’ve got a message to deliver—or some calming vibes to offer. With the moon in your heart-centered fifth house squaring Jupiter in your intuitive eighth, seek out one friendly face and make a beeline to that person. A great icebreaker is asking open-ended questions about their lives. You don’t have to share any details of YOUR life, but if you do, speak from the heart, and they’ll feel it!
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Tuesday August 29
You may be the CEO of Woo among your friends, but you’re still only one (very mystical) Scorpio! Today’s clash between the caretaking moon and overarching Jupiter may try to convince you that you can handle anything by yourself, but that’s probably not realistic. Don’t let pride get in the way of getting things done. Asking for an assist doesn’t mean less glory for you; it means you’ll get the best possible effort—without wearing yourself out (or spraining something). Besides, this way you allow the other person to rack up good karma by helping you!
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Tuesday August 29
The good news? With the Jupiter in Taurus, your sixth house of organization and service, you’re operating at peak productivity levels. You love a day where you can roll up your sleeves and get down to the rewarding business of creating order out of chaos. But watch for a tense square from the idealistic Aquarius moon, which may tempt you to bite off more than even you can chew. Make a list and a timeline, and then hack away at a sane and organic pace.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) daily horoscope for Tuesday August 29
You might not be able to rub the stars out of your eyes today, Capricorn, even if you know you’ve moved far away from your usual cautious nature. Enjoy the heady rush but proceed with care! Jupiter in your amorous fifth house is casting a rosy glow over certain people and situations, but as it clashes with the intuitive moon, your Spidey senses might be on the fritz. There’s nothing wrong with a little innocent flirting and interaction, but assign a trustworthy “gatekeeper” so you don’t fall for a silver-tongued smooth talker.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Tuesday August 29
Not everyone who says they have your back can or will come through when you need them, Aquarius. With the moon in your sign squaring overzealous Jupiter, you don’t want to fall for big, empty talk. But that’s no reason to hit the panic button. Since forewarned is forearmed, just have a viable Plan B ready to pull out should someone drop the ball. If people can’t back it up with action, cut ’em loose and move on to someone you know you can count on.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Tuesday August 29
Steer clear of snap decisions today, unless you’re willing to risk totally misreading a situation. The intuitive moon is hovering in your introspective zone, but it’s squaring restless Jupiter. Slow down enough to take in ALL the details. That’s seldom your favorite part of a project, but that could save you some costly mistakes now! Review your entire punch list and everyone’s responsibilities. This isn’t the time to cut corners or be penny-wise (and profit-foolish). One slow steady step at a time will carry you to the finish line!
