Daily horoscope for Friday, August 18, 2017
ARIES

That person who's been eyeing you from across the room? Don't you dare stare back, or even crack so much as a grin if you're not interested. You're packing super- ultra- mega-sensual energies now, and it's no surprise others are picking up on them. Save yourself the trouble, and save them the heartache. Be sure you're only in the company of those you really want to be with.

TAURUS
taurus


It's the perfect astrological and emotional weather for your sign. You really couldn't do much better, and you knew it as soon as you set your feet on the floor this morning. For once, everyone around you will be feeling everything just as intensely as you do all the time. You'll also notice they're operating a little more from their gut and a lot less from their desire to seek approval. See? Lovely weather, huh?

GEMINI

This has been coming for a while, and you're not ashamed to say it. You've just about had it with your current situation, and you want out. Still, you're reluctant to make a move without something solid waiting for you. That's not a lack of guts, either -- it's a sign of maturity. You can buckle down and stand the situation for a few more days. At least until you've made some phone calls to start the ball rolling.

CANCER

Ever notice how you hear from someone you've been thinking about? Well, if you haven't noticed it before, you're definitely going to notice it now. A parade of long-lost friends and lovers is about to make contact with you over the coming weeks. The fun starts today. Ready or not, here comes a voice you haven't heard in a long, long time.

LEO
leo


Ordinarily, under circumstances like these, you'd probably feel a bit antsy -- no, actually, you'd feel really antsy. As if someone were trying to clip your wings. That, of course, wouldn't be much fun, and you wouldn't stand for it -- unless, of course, you were already sweet on the person with the clippers. In which case you'd probably stretch out your wings and show them where to start clipping.

VIRGO

You've made your home a warm, comfortable and welcoming nest. So, of course, everyone always wants to be there with you. Unfortunately, you also love your privacy, and you probably haven't had much of it lately. If things get a little tricky this weekend, and you have too much company, you can always mention that you'd like some time alone. Or you can take a trip and treat yourself to a change of scenery -- complete with a free attitude adjustment.

LIBRA
libra


Okay, stop resisting and buckle down already -- do what they want you to do. Why are you having such an issue with authority lately? Maybe it's because you just can't bring yourself to do anything that sounds like a direct order. Well, that's understandable, a fine reason, really. Just be sure the real reason isn't that you're running away from something called responsibility. You know darned well you couldn't live with that.

SCORPIO
scorpio


An authority figure who seems to have been less than forthcoming lately is just about ready to come clean and tell you exactly what's been going on. But that's no reason to worry. The news will be good -- especially if you're brave enough to start the conversation yourself. And when have you been anything less than brave? Get business out of the way early, because tonight was made for romance.

SAGITTARIUS
sagittarius


Think about it: Exactly how long have you been wishing, hoping and actually dreaming about taking off for parts unknown to everyone but you and one lucky companion? If you can't remember a date -- or a month -- it's time to stop dreaming and start making plans. Wait, however, until next week to start solidifying your itinerary. In the meantime, do your homework.

CAPRICORN
capricorn


As far as you're concerned, this kind of thing only happens in the movies. The war-weary hero or heroine heads home pulls down the shades and disappears. Fade to black. But that's not the kind of thing you'd ever do, right? Well, not usually -- but at the moment, there's probably nowhere else you'd rather be than at home. Of course, if you don't want to be alone, you know there's someone who'd be happy to keep you company.

AQUARIUS
aquarius


It's your favorite time -- that's right, party time! It's all about recreation, and it's all just waiting to happen. You have even more good reasons to be happy, too. The universe has decided to gift you with an added dose of romance -- yes, more -- that will make you wonder if it isn't still Valentine's Day. Enjoy it to the max, especially if you don't have to get up tomorrow!

PISCES

You've been playing around with a certain hobby for a while, and it's suddenly dawned on you that you really and truly might be able to make a full-time job of this -- or at least a part-time source of income. It's a good idea and you shouldn't dismiss it. You might, however, want to come up with a solid plan before you quit your day job, that is. Get out some legal pads and start scribbling.
