Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Saturday August 19
As the Libra moon lights up your interpersonal seventh house Saturday, your savviest move would be to partner with another powerhouse. Don’t go in search of your doppelganger, though. You’d be better off with someone whose talents and tools supplement yours nicely…a collaborator who “completes” you. Good news: This person may already be in the vicinity of your radar. Scroll through your contact list and see who fits the bill. A small dose of excitement is always welcome in Ariesland, but be careful not to push your luck on Sunday. Since the Sun in your joy sector is rubbing Neptune in your subconscious corner the wrong way, lighthearted “teasing” might accidentally hit a nerve. Or you could unwittingly let toxic types into your orbit. You know the ones. They’re the life of the party at first, and then eventually they show their true colors…selfish and manipulative. Stay on guard!
Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Saturday August 19
Not so fast, Bull! Although you’d prefer to gaze at the forest, the Libra moon in your fastidious sixth house beckons you to zoom in on a specific tree this Saturday. Before you get the ball rolling, go over your systems with a fine-tooth comb. Are there any holes in a plan to execute routine tasks? Could any of them be outsourced or automated? Is everyone in your group on the same page when it comes to the optimum approach and rules of conduct? Even authoritative Bulls don’t relish this kind of micromanaging. But when you get the daily operations running like a well-oiled machine, that’s when you can launch the most epic missions! To hunker down at home or mingle with the masses: That is the question this Sunday. Friction between the Sun in your cozy fourth house and Neptune in your humanity zone could compel you to scrap your cocooning plan and unfold your social butterfly wings. The invites pouring in could be too tempting to decline. Don’t overdo it, though. Draw the line at hosting anything at Chez Bull since you’ll want your space to yourself.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Saturday August 19
Saturday’s Libra moon is firing up your heart-centered fifth house, inviting you to spark a little somethin’ somethin’. If you were to take charge of your love life right this second, what would that look like? Asking out your latest romantic interest or making a surprising move on your bae should go over well. On a less sexy note, give a wide berth to people who get on your nerves. The last thing you want is to sit through dinner in a gorgeous outfit feeling annoyed. It’s tempting to slack off a little during the dog days of summer and talk about your upcoming vacation plans rather than your latest project. But since the Sun in your communication corner is at odds with distractible Neptune this Sunday, other people’s drama is extra likely to lure you away from the task at hand. You have two options (music to a Twin’s ears!): Either pop in your earbuds and put your nose to the grindstone OR steer the conversation toward industry insider info. You might just hear a tidbit you can make use of.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Saturday August 19
Most Crabs can handle being flooded with feels, but you can still benefit from a few tips for weathering Saturday’s particular storm. As the Libra moon fills your moody fourth house with nervous energy, you’d be smart to skip that second iced latte and cut out other stimulants, including sugar-laden ones. Lean protein, like an egg-white omelet, and whole grains, like quinoa, will provide a steadier supply of energy. Avoid crowds if you can, and consider staying home tonight to recharge your battery. Don’t feel obligated to rise to the occasion if your instinct is to self-soothe. You could get carried away just thinking about an exciting future venture this Sunday, or maybe you’re noticing there’s something wrong with this picture. With the Sun lodged in your resources zone, you’re focused on the brass tacks of a project like crafting a budget and a timeline. And although you know you should play it safe and stay on task, dreamy Neptune in your expansion realm is drawing your eye further down the road. Instead of following the thread to the point of distraction, jot down some notes that you can revisit later, then get back to what you were supposed to be doing.
Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Saturday August 19
What’s it gonna be, Leo? As the moon drifts through fickle Libra this Saturday, you’ll find yourself waffling over a decision. Don’t push yourself off the fence. Maybe you need to investigate more before you sign on the dotted line. Spend the day doing some sleuthing, and poke around for alternative possibilities that you might like even better. At the very least, you’ll feel more certain that you’re making an informed choice. As your ruler, the Sun, travels through your sign, you’re fired up to assert yourself and show off a little. But Sunday’s discord between el Sol and murky Neptune in your eighth house of hidden matters suggests you should be more mysterious. Instead of sharing the whole enchilada, try putting out a teaser that whets their appetite. Give them time to work up to the real deal. It will work in your favor to filter out the wishy-washy takers and win over the people who can go the distance.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Saturday August 19
While the moon hangs in your resourceful second house all day, you’re feeling like your grounded self. Prior to hitting the ground running, go through the nuts and bolts of every action item on your agenda. After you come up with a list, you’ll be able to put them in a logical order to ensure that you’re not duplicating anything or doubling back. In your personal life, go at a slower pace and savor each moment with the people you adore. Keep your phone out of reach AND out of sight, then give them your full attention. They’ll feel the difference. You might be due for some downtime this Sunday, but people are not inclined to give you a break. Getting some distance from them might feel like an uphill battle due to an awkward angle between the Sun in your retreat corner and no-boundaries Neptune in your relationship realm. Whenever you try to duck out, someone pings you with yet another request. Embrace repetition, saying “Sorry, another time” or “No, I really can’t” over and over until the message sinks in. Coddling takes too much energy, and you don’t have a surplus of that!
Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Saturday August 19
Soak up the limelight that the Libra moon is beaming onto you Saturday. Don’t try to downplay how fabulous you are, even if some people in your orbit seem a bit put off. Plenty of others will cheer on your star turn. Attempting to keep everybody happy is pointless, so tune out the haters. Step up to the plate if a high-profile position becomes available. If you meet the criteria, why not throw your hat in the ring? You can learn the rest of the ropes on the job, plus you’re sure to find colleagues who are willing to mentor you. On Sunday, the focalizing Sun in your socializing sector is drawing your attention toward group entertainment. Trouble is, el Sol is at odds with murky Neptune in your detail-oriented sixth house today, so something essential could fall through the cracks if you give in to peer pressure without checking your schedule and proofreading your work. If you’re headed out for brunch, drink a glass of water for each serving of alcohol and don’t imbibe at all until you’ve had a full meal. Or ditch the drinks in favor of mocktails and lucid conversation.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Saturday August 19
Saturday’s moon in your compassionate twelfth house brings out your sensitivity. Sometimes you might feel like you care too much, but this isn’t one of those times, fortunately. Being of service to a colleague or a VIP friend needn’t take up all your time. A few minutes of your thoughtful counsel with some rousing words of encouragement at the end should suffice. Your faith in them will launch them on their way. Should you put your head down and knock out a major item on your to-do list this Sunday? Or kick up your kitten heels and have some fun? As the focalizing Sun in your ambition arena tussles with enticing Neptune in your joy zone, it won’t be easy to make the right call. But you really don’t want to fritter away this potentially productive day. Make a rez for dinner or confirm the plan that’s already in place, then get straight to work and plug away until you reach your target. If you play your cards right, you can fly through this early and pop by a pool party in the afternoon!
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Saturday August 19
Maybe the status quo is good enough for other people, but heartening Sagittarians know how to rally the troops to keep moving onward and upward. With the Libra moon powering up your communal eleventh house, you can lead a group plan or brainstorming session with great success. Before you start, do a little R&D so you kick things off with some idea-generating talking points. Try not to overextend yourself this Sunday, Archer. The Sun’s energizing presence in your expansion sector is revving you up to tackle everything all at once. However, an uncomfortable encounter with draining Neptune in your sensitive fourth house could deplete your fuel and result in burnout. Keep a record of your brilliant epiphanies, but don’t attempt to act on them until you’ve recruited enough helpers to support you.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) daily horoscope for Saturday August 19
You’re ready to progress toward a goal in leaps and bounds rather than baby steps, thanks to the Libra moon’s presence in your ambition realm Saturday. But before you can pull that off, you’ll need to put your blinders on so you don’t even notice all the potential distractions that could lure you off-track. One caveat: Be sure that you don’t trample on any toes in your fervently focused race to the finish line. Slow your roll as needed so you don’t burn any bridges. You might find it nearly impossible to avoid spilling the tea this Sunday, Goat. With the Sun sailing through your eighth house of hidden matters, people are quick to share their secrets with you—and the info may be too salacious to keep in the vault. Since el Sol is at odds with no-boundaries Neptune in your communication corner, you’re in danger of blurting out something you’re supposed to keep under wraps. Zip it! Put yourself in the other person’s shoes and picture how they’d feel if you betray their confidence. And you should know that this energy flows both ways, so be careful who YOU confide in, too.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Saturday August 19
With the Libra moon lighting up your outspoken ninth house, if anyone’s going to declare that the emperor has no clothes, it will probably have to be you. But it won’t help matters if you spout off before you’re reasonably sure that you have a strong case. People are liable to overreact and either jump on your shaky bandwagon or question your judgment. First verify the facts before you get up on your soapbox. And don’t forget that there are several sides to everything. Stay neutral until you’ve examined this from all angles. As the Sun moves across your interpersonal realm, one-on-one relationships are front and center in your world. But el Sol becomes entangled with foggy Neptune in your self-worth sector this Sunday, so you might not feel sure of yourself when you’re trying to connect as equals. Avoid playing the comparison game, where nobody comes out a winner. Your own talents are up to snuff, so try not to question them. Even if the other person seems ultra-confident or has a bigger budget, you can lean into your “soft power” to establish a rapport. Consider what you admire about them and then offer a sincere compliment that initiates a convo about collaborating.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Saturday August 19
Prepare to vibe! As the Libra moon sizzles in your mysterious eighth house, you’re liable to feel a strong connection to another person. It may feel like your minds and souls are melding, but don’t rush the physical aspect of your chemistry just yet. Simply pay attention to what’s happening and take the time to explore what might develop from here. Since you’re like a psychic sponge Saturday, you may want to hang out solo or with a very select few. You fully intend to plow through your errands, thanks to the Sun’s energizing presence in your productive sixth house this Sunday. But as the saying goes, the road to hell is paved with good intentions! The problem is this: El Sol is clashing with bewildering Neptune in your sign today. So don’t take on too much, especially in the interest of helping everyone except yourself. Make adjustments in order to carve out some time for self-care in your schedule. And try not to make tonight about favors or errands, either. Your body and soul are crying out for a massage or yoga class.
