Horoscope for Aug. 20
August 20, 2010
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Those with whom you're involved will expect you to do what was promised regardless of how you feel. Not feeling up to the task will be no excuse, so try to do the best you can.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — There is nothing wrong with your earning capacity, yet it could be a day of downs for you financially, when expenses get thrown at you from left and right. Bite the bullet and handle it.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Spoiled youngsters could expect that all that you've done for them in the past should be standard procedure, and could make some unreasonable demands on you. Don't let them get away with such behavior.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — You might be in for a big surprise when all that flattery you're using on someone doesn't work. Try again, but this time use honesty and humbleness.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Although it might usually cost you a dollar for a dollar's worth of value, you might have to give more than you'll get in order to have something you want. Don't buy what you don't need.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Get your priorities straightened out, or you could end up wasting all your time catering to someone who hardly ever notices you, while ignoring a good pal who has always been there for you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Don't allow yourself to get enthralled with someone who is already spoken for. Pursuing forbidden fruit will not only cause you to waste time on what you can never have, but also create major problems for you.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Just because the person you choose to do business with happens to be a friend, it doesn't mean you don't have to get important clauses in writing. Each party could be expecting more than they should.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — A number of people you've always thought of as being allies might be only partially in accord with your ideas and/or purposes. However, even that support could also erode if you're not careful.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Unless those you've hired to do a certain job are given exact instructions, you aren't likely to be satisfied with their work. Remember, the fault will be yours, not theirs.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — There are indications that, when doing business, you will be tempted to go with someone new and untested because you think you can get a better deal. Unfortunately, it is likely to be a poor decision.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — If you find your mate or partner has a case of the grumbles, it'll be a mistake to respond in kind. By being even more affectionate than usual, you can be the substance that sweetens the soul.
