The Lunar Forecasts give Daily Horoscopes a greater context.

The energy of that powerful Solar Eclipse in Leo (August 21st) moves into the background, as your attention shifts to focus more on practical affairs. With many people back to school and back to work now, the time favours seeing which areas of your life need applied effort: work? health? home?

You have the determination and discipline both to complete old projects AND to begin new ones. The challenge now is to discern whether to stick to completing projects already started OR to adapt them to new conditions OR to abandon them altogether in favour of something entirely new. You may even be able to combine these possibilities: innovate within an already established framework. Whatever you decide, don’t be discouraged! Be patient and you may begin to see some steady progress toward the achievement of your goals.

With a lot of mental energy stirred up at the time of this New Moon, you may find your mind highly stimulated. Ideas come fast and furious …and maybe your words do too! Be thoughtful and considerate before you speak. You may want to voice your opinions on behalf of some cause, but it would be wise to balance passion with compassion.

It may be hard to decide what you really think about various topics now, anyway. You might want to spend some time sorting out what your beliefs truly are. Let both logic and intuition have a say in this. Whatever you decide, if you can balance these two you may have opportunities to put your plans into actions that benefit both you and others. This can be a time to serve your own highest and best self, as well as to offer the best possible service to others.

The Lunar Forecasts give Daily Horoscopes a greater context.

You may be hoping for some fresh excitement or perhaps a chance to break free of something that you've been dissatisfied with for a long time. The planets suggest this might not happen the way you're expecting it to, or might not happen at all. Although this might sound like bad news, the Universe will no doubt have Its reasons for blocking it. No, it's definitely not because the Universe hates you. :-) It's more likely that there are things to consider or fine-tune that mean you're just not quite ready yet.

On the other hand, something you're trying to do might happen so suddenly or forcefully that you're overwhelmed, shaken up, or caught off guard. The lesson, although perhaps overblown, is meant to challenge you to dig deeper into yourself, your intentions and motives, to discover what is driving you from deep down. Are you motivated by trying to retaliate in defence of a wounded ego? Perhaps you want to break through blocks in your path that seem to only hold you back. Or you're trying hard to focus your actions and intentions in order to make better progress toward a goal.

This is a good time to examine the principles, ethics and reasons that are driving your actions and passions right now. If you're expecting everyone involved to follow the same rules, cherish the same beliefs, or agree which priorities are most important, you might wind up frustrated. You'll do better if you can be flexible about your goals or how to get there. Be willing to negotiate and compromise—not so much that you lose the essence of your dream, but enough that you can keep it alive even if you have to give up some of the details. Avoid my-way-or-the-highway attitudes. Tread lightly on the Earth and be ready to make changes.
