Your Daily Horoscope for Monday, August 27


March 21- April 19

A sentimental mood overtakes you today. You're normally so energetic and even sharp-edged, but now you're in a softer, sweeter frame of mind. You want to reach out and connect with the people you know and love, so call a friend or visit a relative. If you work in a creative field, pay special attention to your dreams and daydreams, because these are rich mines of information and creativity now.

April 20-May 20

You're infused with emotion today. Suddenly, life is a purely subjective experience, and a sweet one. You feel blessed with kindness and rich in love. This is a good day to reach out to anyone who is ailing in any way, whether physical, spiritual, financial or otherwise. You're overflowing with compassion, and just a simple smile or hug from you can make someone else's day brighter. So pass it on, Taurus!


May 21-June 21

Suddenly, you feel moody and emotional, as if a rain cloud is drifting over your head. The best thing to do at moments like this is simply to feel your feelings, though your urge might be to ignore them or rationalise them away. This never works, as you've probably learned by now. What does help, though, is letting the emotion wash through you, and then it is gone. Poof!


June 22-July 22

You feel loving and emotionally vulnerable today, but don't slip into the slightest bit of worry or melancholy. Instead, focus on your blessings — of which there are many. After all, more things are going right than are going wrong, if you look at it right. Find the blessings in your life, including the fact that you're such a tuned-in, compassionate person. Not everyone has that, you know.


July 23-August 22

You could feel quite dramatic today. You're awash with emotion — perhaps you're feeling sentimental or nostalgic, or perhaps you're in a romantic mood. Embody the emotion you feel. If you're feeling down, the best medicine for your soul is hugs from your loved ones. Even holding your beloved pet in your lap keeps your heart rate and blood pressure low. Surround yourself in a cocoon of love.


August 23-September 22

Yours is the sign of service, and you're no stranger to throwing your efforts behind someone who needs your help. Just watch out today for people who would take advantage of your kindness if given the chance. You're more emotional than usual now, and more deeply sympathetic to the plights of others. On the other hand, you're certainly wise and practical enough to discern a sob story from a genuine appeal for help.


September 23-October 22

Your soft heart goes positively gooey today. Everything you see pulls at your heartstrings — a stray puppy in the parking lot at the grocery store, a crying baby, two elderly people holding hands as they walk slowly down the sidewalk… It's exquisite pleasure and pain to be this sensitive, isn't it? Try to enjoy it while it lasts. Think of it as a lesson in the human experience.


October 23 – November 22

It's a great day to tap into your deepest emotions, because they're easy to access now. But instead of getting caught up in your own internal dramas, focus on connecting with other people and even helping someone through their own tough feelings. You make a wonderful counsellor, Scorpio, because you're a good listener and you really understand human nature. Put that skill to good use today. Someone could use your help.


November 23-December 20

Yesterday's big, brilliant ideas are old news today. Your thinking is no longer sharp, clear and clever; instead, it's free form and impressionistic at best. But rest assured, this is a rich, creative field just waiting to be mined. Your dreams and fantasies are especially revealing — those moments when you're operating on instinct instead of intellect. Don't discount your own insights, Sagittarius. Feel your way along today.


December 21-January 19

Normally you're all business, but today your hard edges soften, and you yearn for connection with your favourite people. Set your work aside and reach out to friends and family. Call up your loved ones who live far away. Hug your children and pets. You deserve a lot of affection, you know, and today's a great day to stock up on it, because everyone else is feeling warm and loving, too.


January 20-February 18

Your humanitarian side kicks into high gear today. You aren't normally an overly emotional type, but someone's story of need really pulls at your heartstrings. You want to help them in some way — you just don't know quite how, at least not yet. Stay open to any ideas that come up, and also stay open to changing your own mind. New information could develop soon that shifts your perspective.


February 19-March 20

You're more soft hearted now than ever. Set strong personal boundaries today, because it's easy to over-empathise with people and animals in need. It's wonderful to have compassion for people in difficult circumstances. But your empathy runs so deep that you could take on someone else's feelings as your own. Be sure to distinguish your emotions from theirs — and recognise that it's not your responsibility to save the world.
