Your daily horoscopes for Monday August 14, 2023
Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Monday August 14
Hey superstar, don’t let the bright lights blind you! With healing comet Chiron firing a warning shot at Venus retrograde, check your head as you take center stage. It’s okay to humblebrag a little, sure, but watch for making others feel inferior in the process. Give credit where it’s due and shoutouts to the “support team” who helped you along the way. Remember: you wouldn’t be at the top of your game without help from your friends! Tag someone on social media who could use a boost and let your followers know just how talented they are. Showing others love will only bring you more praise in return.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Monday August 14
You could be easily tempted by emotional eating or retail therapy today, Taurus. But you can steer clear of stress-fueled overindulgences by working through your feelings. Freewriting, meditation or some other cathartic release could help untangle the worrisome knots. With restrictive Chiron forming a harsh angle to Venus retrograde, there’s a distinct difference between enjoying a few of life’s pleasures and suppressing your emotions by stuffing down heavy foods and too much sugar. Lean on a loved one for extra support and air your grievances to lighten this heavy burden.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Monday August 14
Your thousand and one friends are all demanding your attention but has one important person fallen by the wayside? Clear some time in your schedule to rekindle your connection and let them know how much they mean to you. You have a lot of exciting news to report, but pass the talking stick back and forth. A potential collaboration could be in the cards under today’s stars, though you could already have more on your plate than you’re able to handle as is. Allow your enthusiasm to show when you hear these new ideas, but don’t bite off more than you can chew in the process.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Monday August 14
Invitations could fly in faster than you can hit “Reply All” today, but don’t let FOMO prevent you from being discerning with your RSVPs. With a restrictive angle forming between Venus retrograde and wounded healer comet Chiron today, you’ll need to prioritize instead of scattering your energy. The task at hand should be your only agenda until it’s complete. Silver lining: think how much more present you’ll be with friends when you’ve polished off this project.
Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Monday August 14
Don’t make outrageous claims and promises today, Leo—not unless you can back up what you say with solid action. When it comes to getting the job done, charm won’t do the trick today. Everyone is counting on you to pull your weight. The only problem is you’re easily prone to distraction—and you’re on deadline! Put your nose to the grindstone and stay focused. Persistence will pay off, maybe even in the form of a raise or promotion to a leadership role.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Monday August 14
Your spidey senses are extra heightened today, so leave no stone unturned as you dig for answers. Let your intuition guide you, Virgo, and pay attention to other people’s body language. There could be more going on here than meets the eye. If something doesn’t sit right with you, do some detective work to get to the bottom of this. Though you might not exactly like what you excavate, you’ll be glad you made this discovery now versus finding out the hard way later. If it’s time to cut ties with an individual or even an organization, you can do so now with your dignity intact.
Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Monday August 14
If a relationship feels off-balance, bring the scales back to equilibrium. But don’t expect to come to any kind of understanding if you don’t communicate with each other. When you practice active listening and truly hear this person out, you may be reminded that nobody is perfect (including you!) and that compromise is an essential part of any partnership or friendship. Let bygones be bygones, and plan some quality time together. How about a yoga class at the new studio or an evening stroll? A good sweat will do you both some good and get the conversation flowing again.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Monday August 14
Time to rub shoulders with a few influencers, Scorpio? It’s all about who you know today, and a power-player friend might just open some exclusive doors for you. Remember: Good karma makes the world go round so you’re not “burdening” people when you ask them to connect you—especially when you’re more than qualified. Reach out for an introduction, especially if you’re searching for a new gig. Decision-makers are more receptive under these career-focused skies. If you need to have an important talk with a client or higher-up, make inroads today.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Monday August 14
Go ahead Archer, don those rose-tinted aviators and let yourself swoon. You’re feeling optimistic about a connection today, and rightly so. There’s so much synergy between you and this person that you’re literally on cloud nine! Give yourself permission to romanticize and daydream, allowing your heart to soften and expand. Dare to be vulnerable with this person, whether the relationship is just barely budding or years in the making. Voice your desires and tell them what you really want out of this.
Capricorn (December 22-January 18) daily horoscope for Monday August 14
Stop chasing, Capricorn, and start wooing people instead. Your natural magnetism is more than enough to draw admirers and business deals, as long as you keep it real. Be yourself instead of bending over backward to impress (it never works).You could be pleasantly surprised by what you manifest when you stop trying to control things. Need a confidence boost? Spend time with people who lift you up and remind you of what makes you so uniquely awesome. No shame in getting an infusion of validation now and then. Return the kindness with a sincere compliment or a glowing LinkedIn testimonial.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Monday August 14
As excited you may be about a certain someone, a reality check is in order. Today’s trine between Venus retrograde and soothsayer Chiron in your interpersonal zones prompts a relationship reassessment. Be honest: Is this person really as invested as you are? Perhaps it’s time to reconfigure your roles or to have an no-BS conversation about the future. You’re ready for someone who will show up for you when you need them most—and consistently each day as well. On the flipside, maybe YOU could use a friendly nudge in a more future-forward direction. Your sign can be famously recalcitrant about commitment. What’s holding you back?
Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Monday August 14
Glow from the inside out, Pisces! Today’s fitness-focused stars encourage you to ramp up your healthy routines—or get yourself back on the wagon in case you tumbled off. Skip the extra flat white and opt for a matcha latte or a decaffeinated herbal concoction with antioxidant and immune-boosting properties. Stressful day at the office? Quit fuming and go for a brisk walk to clear your head. A bit of mindfulness sprinkled throughout your workday is just what the cosmos ordered. Respond calmly instead of reacting at a knee-jerk level and you’ll make better decisions. Take five!
