Today's horoscopes - 21 Aug 2018
by Russell Grant
Being a free agent will improve your financial prospects. Although you'll experience peaks and valleys, you'll fare much better than hitching your star to a single employer. The nice thing about being an independent contractor is that you have several income streams. A raise or promotion is on the way. The people around you are impressed by your work ethic. They'll do anything possible to keep you in the fold. If you're ready to strike out on your own, do it. Your entrepreneurial skills are second to none.
Stop worrying what other people will say about your decisions. Adopting an unusual lifestyle will be liberating. Your unorthodox hours will affect some friendships. Instead of maintaining these outmoded bonds, you should move on to greener pastures. You'll meet other creative types who understand you. A chance to travel in business should be cause for celebration. When you're not working, you'll be able to tour a luxurious city. This change of scenery will appeal to your sensual side.
If you feel stifled at work or home, find an outlet for your passionate energy. Joining a club, team or organisation will bring out the best in you. Don't discuss this association with others. You're a complicated person who can benefit from a secret life. Taking control of a joint financial account is strongly advised. You'll be able to devise ways to keep savings intact, even when you are hit with unexpected bills. Having two sources of income is a natural fit for you.
There is strength in numbers. Instead of aligning yourself with respectable people, join forces with some mavericks. You'll enjoy working with fellow creatives who are tired of doing things in predictable ways. These friendships will trigger some fabulous ideas for products, services and inventions. A serious relationship is empowering. Talk to your romantic or business partner about realising your potential. They'll give you the moral support you desire to embark on a more rewarding path. You'll have to make a few sacrifices, but you won't mind.
You're yearning to try a different line of work. This impulse has shocked those who think you have it made. Don't listen to their dire warnings about the job market. Whenever you follow your instincts, you achieve success. Strike in a new direction. Putting yourself on a strict regime will improve your health. Instead of eating whenever you're fainting from hunger, enjoy a series of small, healthful meals throughout the day. Both your energy and mood will soar because of this routine.
Taking up a different spiritual practice will be rewarding. Although you have great respect for tradition, it's also important for you to develop a personally meaningful belief system. Be willing to cobble together ideas from several different religions; there is no right way to worship. A youngster may need additional help with school or possibly an emotional issue. Finding a counsellor who is sensitive to their needs will have a beneficial impact on your entire family. Seek an older professional with lots of experience.
A sudden change will work to your advantage. Even if a source of income dries up, it could very well work out for the better in the long run. Not having to rely on a surly person for royalty payments or spousal support will be empowering. If you want to get your own place, this will be a great time to find one. Look for a home that's near your job. A quick and easy commute will give you more time for the relationships and activities you love.
Working with someone who makes money in an unusual way will be instructive. You'll soon learn the value of providing highly specialised services to clients. Customers appreciate professionals with rare abilities. Let this be a signal to refine your own skill set. Be cautious about sharing your plans. If someone asks what you're going to do, give a noncommittal response. There's no reason to alert potential rivals to a job search or life change. This is one of those times when your love of privacy serves you well.
Watch your health carefully. If you have difficulty pinpointing the source of an ache or pain, talk to a holistic healer. After a thorough examination, they'll recommend an effective therapy. Follow this regime to the letter, even if it seems strange. If you feel overwhelmed, do yourself a favour and clean out your closet. Get rid of anything that doesn't delight or serve you. Divide these items into three piles: Sell, donate and discard. Your living area will be much more spacious once you clear out the clutter.
You've always been highly responsible when it comes to work. Stop pushing yourself so hard and have some fun for a change. Going on an impromptu trip or flirting with a stranger will make you feel years younger. Following an impulse will be rewarding. Get into the habit of regularly praising yourself. When you love yourself, you'll attract love, luck and wealth. Stop apologising for your shortcomings. You've been blessed with tremendous talent. Owning and sharing these gifts will put you in the winner's circle.
You're intent on making some changes to your household. Whether this means upgrading your kitchen, planting a garden or rearranging the rooms is unimportant. The critical thing is to create an arrangement that serves everybody's needs. Don't be guided by convention. If your energy is flagging, take a break. Enjoying a day off work will give you a chance to reflect on where you've been. Changing course will give you a chance to enjoy more leisure time. Scale back your work responsibilities.
If you're in the market for a car, this would be a great time to buy one. You'll find a model that meets your needs at a price you can easily afford. Alternatively, you might decide to move near public transport, easing your daily commute. An influential friend will be able to help you reach a lofty goal. Don't hesitate to ask them for a loan, reference or introduction. Getting a green light from this VIP will make all the difference.
