Your daily horoscopes for Thursday August 17, 2023

Aries Daily horoscope

Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Thursday August 17

Say no to an offer that is almost there but not quite good enough. Today, there’s no reason on earth you should have to compromise, Aries, so don’t sell yourself short. Settling for second best just delays the process of getting exactly what you desire. There may be room for negotiation here too, so don’t rule out that option. Yet if you’re fundamentally mismatched, you’d be wasting time trying to mold this situation to your desires. Have faith and hold out for the correct fit.

Taurus daily horoscope

Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Thursday August 17

You have a say in how high the drama will escalate today, Taurus. No matter how obnoxious people’s behavior is, the way you react and respond determines the final outcome. Buttons pushed? Take that deep breath and count backward from ten before fighting fire with fire. Although you may be perfectly justified in losing your cool, you’ll also lose control of the situation if you allow emotions to creep in. Take a timeout (for a few days) if your composure is at risk.

Gemini Daily Horoscope

Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Thursday August 17

Today, you may have to make a sacrifice for someone you love, but you’re actually fine with it. NOT being there for them would feel worse than going a little bit out of your way. That said, your generosity should still know SOME bounds. The point is to support this person, not take on their troubles as your own. Conversely, you may be the one who needs to reach out for a helping hand. Put pride to the side and just ask!

Cancer Daily Horoscope

Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Thursday August 17

As a solitude-loving Cancer, you can be equal parts family-oriented and self-sovereign. Yet this habit of pivoting between moods may be affecting the quality of your closest relationships. You’ll never have a chance to truly connect to people if you’re always pulling away. Consider becoming a more actively engaged member of a group. The common experiences you share over time become the glue that holds you together. Be patient with the process and just stay put.

Leo Daily Horoscope

Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Thursday August 17

Powerful people surround you, Leo, and they can assist you with your financial growth today. Your job, however, is to silence your inner know-it-all before it can rise up and sabotage these supportive connections. Humble thyself and ask lots of questions. Take it all in; you don’t have to come back with a clever response. Even if you only wind up using 10 percent of the advice you hear, there’s a nugget of gold to be gleaned.

Virgo Daily Horoscope

Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Thursday August 17

Change isn’t always easy—or gentle for the analytical Virgo—but today’s moon-Jupiter trine gives you the incentive to tackle one of the bigger areas in your life that’s in need of a shift. It begins with honesty: You’re not happy about the way things are going, and it’s okay to say so. Admitting that there’s an issue is the first step in solving the problem, not the demise of life as you know it.

Libra Daily Horoscope

Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Thursday August 17

Clear the decks today, Libra. Before you can welcome anything (or anyone) new into your world, you have to wrap up the unfinished business that’s been piling up on your plate. Otherwise, a source of success will only feel like another stressful demand. Don’t get swept up in FOMO. You don’t have to turn down people’s offers and invitations today; just let them know that you need a little more time before you can engage or commit.

Scorpio Daily Horoscope

Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Thursday August 17

Dial down the intensity in a close relationship today by taking conversations about the future off the table. The best insurance policy for a shared tomorrow is to make sure you’re enjoying each other’s company in the here and now. For example, when was the last time you approached your love interest the way you would a new friend? Try that tack today and enjoy the ease of communication that flows between you as a result. You might even learn something new about each other or share a much-needed belly laugh.

Sagittarius Daily Horoscope

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Thursday August 17

What Sagittarius hasn’t dreamed, at least once, of signing your own paychecks and being the boss? As the moon trines your ruler, entrepreneurial Jupiter, it could bring some compelling evidence that it’s time to explore the idea of running your own business…if only as a side gig. If Archer, Inc., is not currently in the cards, find ways to take on more autonomy and leadership at your current job. A new role may not be open yet, but you can position yourself for the ascent by acting as if you’re already an important executive. It’s all in the attitude.

Capricorn Daily Horoscope

Capricorn (December 22-January 18) daily horoscope for Thursday August 17

Getting away from it all seems like a fine idea today, Capricorn. If you have the luxury of traveling, a change of scenery would do wonders for your mood. You might even feel the spark of romance while you’re sating your wanderlust. Talk to strangers, even the ones in your own hometown. The odds of sharing dinner with a fascinating new companion are high, even if it’s just a flirty, for-the-moment connection. You’ve got nothing to lose by sharing a perhaps not-so-innocent meal together tonight.

Aquarius Daily Horoscope

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Thursday August 17

You’re privy to other people’s blind spots today, Aquarius, but be sensitive when sharing what you see. The point is to support them in their evolution, not to leave them feeling judged or shamed. Rather than going for the direct hit with your feedback, try sharing a similar lesson you learned from your own life. That might shine a light on the issue for them, helping them see their own foibles without you having to point them out.

Pisces Daily Horoscope

Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Thursday August 17

There’s always more to learn about love, Pisces, and today’s planets call for an honest inventory of your own actions. Does the same relationship keep appearing in different forms? Do you find yourself stuck in the same old uncomfortable role no matter who you’re with? Rather than pointing the finger, begin looking within. Awareness of your self-sabotaging patterns is the key to breaking them. Today, you could catch yourself in the act and make the choice to try a different tact. Hello, personal breakthrough!
