Your daily horoscopes for Thursday August 10, 2023
Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Thursday August 10
While you love to ad lib, Aries, aim for “organized chaos” under today’s paradoxical square between the experimental Gemini moon and efficient Mars in Virgo. It’s fine to let things get a LITTLE messy in the name of exploration. Play around with a new style, start a project that you’re not 100 percent sure that you’ll be successful at, let someone help you out on a project, make art or music. But if there’s an end goal in mind, try not to lose sight of it—especially if there’s a deadline attached!
Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Thursday August 10
Practice makes perfect, as every diligent Taurus seems to innately understand. But under today’s tangled angle between the moon and restless Mars, you wouldn’t mind speeding up the process…a lot. If you’re just getting rolling, keep paying your dues and proving to people that you’re truly in it for the long haul. But don’t confuse that with doing everything the hard way. Your growth may accelerate once you open yourself up to cutting-edge strategies or seeing what your competition’s got cooking.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Thursday August 10
Breaking away from the pack can be uncomfortable for the “people first” Geminis, but today, it’s exactly what’s required if you want to see your vision through. As the sovereign Gemini moon clashes with agitating Mars in your family zone, your heartstrings are too easily tugged on by those closest to you. Unfortunately, that may lead you to compromise in ways that water down your idea. As awkward as it may feel for you to keep a “secret” from them, consider the alternative. If you please them at your own expense, the resentment that follows could create even MORE distance.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Thursday August 10
Today brings an opportunity to slip into one of your favorite roles: Best Supporting. Not only is the Gemini moon sending out alerts from your compassionate twelfth house, but it’s squaring Mars in service-oriented Virgo, making it impossible to ignore anyone’s subtle signals for help. Of course, this generous trait can be a double-edged sword if you don’t narrow your field of focus. Right now, charity begins in the home—or with the people closest to your heart!
Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Thursday August 10
Your cutting-edge ideas may not be sharp enough to slice through people’s resistance under today’s muddling square between the moon and Mars. But maybe being revolutionary isn’t the point today? With Mars in your sensitive fourth house and the moon in your communal eleventh, what if you simply got curious about where everyone stands on a certain matter. By waiting to introduce your concepts, you’ll give yourself a chance to tailor your pitch in a way that your audience—or audiences—can hear.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Thursday August 10
It’s not hard for you to gain the upper hand, Virgo, but with today’s tense angle between the moon in your leadership zone and combative Mars in your sign, that hand could feel more like an iron fist. If you boss people around or make them feel “less than” in any way (those Virgo critiques can sting!), you could alienate them fast. When you feel tension brewing, take it as a sign to ease off the gas and give others a chance to catch up. It might take a little extra time to train or guide people, but once they catch on, their help will save you hours.
Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Thursday August 10
If you want to bring parity back to a tense relationship, here’s a tip, Libra: Stop playing the game of opposites. For example, when one person starts slacking, does the other double down and work harder? Today’s moon-Mars square sounds a loud wake-up call to stop reacting and start communicating directly. Maybe there’s a reason this person is resisting effort and dropping the ball—or passive-aggressively picking it up before you have a chance to do your part. Brave questions must be asked, ones you may or may not love the answer to. Nevertheless, you’ll feel so much better when you are clear about everyone’s TRUE motives.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Thursday August 10
You’re no stranger to the danger zone, Scorpio, but don’t dance too close to the edge today! Under a dicey clash between the Gemini moon and feisty Mars in Virgo, your provocative side could come across as straight-up confrontational. If you’re going to dole out feedback, make sure it’s constructive. Otherwise you could set up an adversarial vibe with people you’d be better off keeping in your corner. If you need to dissect a perceived problem, you don’t have to skirt the issue. But before you go into critique mode, appreciate and acknowledge the hard work that’s been done thus far.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Thursday August 10
If you’re struggling to move the needle, don’t make the mistake of working harder and hoping your efforts will pay off. Instead, stop and tap into your network. Supportive partners are everywhere you look under today’s interactive Gemini moon. One note of caution: With Mars in your professional tenth house at odds with the moon, being too pushy about YOUR agenda will be a turnoff. Take time to find out everyone’s goals so you can create a win-win.
Capricorn (December 22-January 18) daily horoscope for Thursday August 10
Better done than perfect? Not with today’s moon in your fastidious sixth house squaring persnickety Mars in Virgo. True, “perfect” isn’t actually attainable, but the message is simply this: Slow down, review your work and polish it to the best of your ability. And if along the way you realize that you need advice or resources, put your pride aside and get the support you need.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Thursday August 10
Even if you’re not the type to gush, don’t be surprised if your feelings come through with a little extra passion under today’s dynamic square between the Gemini moon in your romance zone and lusty Mars in your erotic eighth house. Lean in to this energy and make your loving feelings a bit more obvious. Sometimes you can be so cool-headed that people question your affections. On the other hand, if someone seems to be pulling back, what you don’t want to do is freak out and pursue. This lull is an opportunity for you to get back into one of YOUR passions—not start an unnecessary fight.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Thursday August 10
Today’s Gemini moon could put you in “a mood.” (Or make that five moods, depending on the hour.) You’ve never been one to hide your feelings, Pisces; it’s just…not possible. But that’s no excuse for filling the space with negative energy by pouting, fuming or being passive-aggressive. If you need to get something off your chest and no one’s free to listen, go somewhere private and make a voice recording. You’ll be amazed by how much simply verbalizing your frustration can move the energy. By the time your BFF is free for coffee, you could have regained your perspective.
