Your Daily Horoscope for Wednesday, August 5

Aries

March 21- April 19

Your enhanced intuition as well as innate pragmatism are sure to lead to breakthroughs today, particularly in regards to family and home. Feel free to contact and solicit advice with loved ones and people you trust. You'll also want to streamline your environment which means jettisoning furniture and clothes, and basically decluttering your environment to create elegant simplicity.

Taurus

April 20-May 20

If you've been meaning to say your peace or have it out with someone, whether it's your close friend or boss, do so today before Mercury leaves your sector of communication and self-expression. Don't worry about conflict or causing a storm. The so-called confrontation will be far less intense than what you anticipate and you'll feel so much better afterwards.

Gemini

May 21-June 21

There's no better time to tie up loose ends in regards to your finances. Clever Mercury is in your sector of money and values for one last day so use it wisely. Research prices from phone bills to insurance as well as interest rates. Compare, haggle and and get the best deal possible to help you save.

Cancer

June 22-July 22

You're not one to beat around the bush. However, if you've been biting your tongue for fear of causing a stir or hurting someone's feelings you need to put those sentiments aside for the time being. Communicative Mercury is spending its last day in your sign so leave no stone unturned in terms of addressing issues.

Leo

July 23-August 22

Thoughtful Mercury in your sector of karma brings past actions and situations into focus. Revisiting dark places will actually be beneficial as it will allow you to permanently release any negative patterns. Meanwhile, the sun in your sign will give you the confidence and humility to fine tune your wellbeing physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Virgo

August 23-September 22

Pay it forward! Performing a random act of kindness has the potential to trigger a wonderful and contagious ricochet effect which, in turn, will make the world a better place. Targeting people who least expect it will have the greatest impact, especially now that the Mercury spends its last day in your sector of humanitarian causes.

Libra

September 23-October 22

The stars are doing a great job at renewing your joie de vivre! You’ll feel more vivacious and lively than usual and in the mood to take risks. However, just be aware of committing to something long term now because it may limit your choices further down the track. Meanwhile, don’t buy into any dramas with friends.

Scorpio

October 23 – November 22

Friends that have been fickle in recent weeks will show their true colours in a pleasantly surprising way. At the same time, don't allow friends to take you for granted. Meanwhile, mighty Mars in your health sector continues to prompt you to lift your game regarding your wellbeing, more on an emotional level but physically as well.

Sagittarius

November 23-December 20

If you’ve been trying in vain to generate publicity for a business or cause but haven't had much excess tides are about to turn. You can now effortlessly cultivate the sort of representation that will hold you in high esteem. Meanwhile, sensual Venus will continue to restore the sizzle to your love life but take the initiative.

Capricorn

December 21-January 19

Striking a balance between tackling the mundane and saying cravings for adventure will be challenging, but not necessarily unattainable. It's in your nature to micromanage but today delegating will lighten your load and hasten you towards escapades, physically and of the mind. Today may also signal the arrival of an important document or piece of news.

Aquarius

January 20-February 18

You’ve been busy with everyday activities, deeply involved in your work and routines. It’s time to balance your life with some down time —otherwise, you simply won’t feel whole. Issues from deep within, dating back to childhood may also come to light so it's an excellent time to get in touch with what’s been brewing beneath the surface.

Pisces

February 19-March 20

You're not decisive but today's uncertainty will push you to the limit particularly regarding your feelings towards someone close to you. Whether the connection is romantic or platonic don’t be too hasty or do anything irreversible. Take your time and you’ll soon reach the right conclusions. Meanwhile, accept a generous offer, you deserve it!
