Whatever you’re tackling on Saturday, an ambitious angle between the Sun and healing Chiron puts you on the fast track to success. Skip the middlemen and pitch the heavy hitters. The Sun gives you a big dose of confidence, so trust your intuition and strike while the iron is hot. But keep your presentations brief and to the point.

Pisces Daily Horoscope

Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Saturday August 12

Healthy living doesn’t have to break the bank, Pisces. Sure, it’s always a bonus when you can slip off for a yoga retreat or splurge on a spa treatment.
