Horoscopes: FRIDAY, AUGUST 24, 2018

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The sight of your loved one has a completeness that cannot be matched by the sight of any other person. Do not doubt the power of recognition. It's a force that can bring the world alive.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Sometimes it's better to experience things silently than to articulate them. Also, don't be too quick to put a name on things today. Things may be what you call them, but they are also more and other than that.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It is easy to see the goal at the end of a short vision. You've already pondered the big picture enough this week. In other words, keep it simple. Clarity of vision will depend on brevity of mission.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Keeping love interesting will be pretty straightforward. Common interests are at the heart of it. But don't stop with just one. Always be searching for and creating new common ground.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). While some people seem to be born with confidence, it is far more likely that confidence is earned through the combination of failure and the resilience and fortitude to keep at it.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Oddly, it will be easier to give your unconditional love and acceptance to someone you don't know very well than to the people you absolutely adore. It is almost impossible to extract your expectations from the love you give.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Finish what you started. It's partially about pride and being true to your word. The other part of you just realizes that if you don't finish, you can't move on. And it's really time for that.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You'll get more accomplished because you let go and realize the importance of the task is temporal. The best results will come from a relaxed place.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Life can be complicated and moods can be difficult to manage, but not today. You've made your mind up to be happy and the rest of you will carry out with the directive.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Behaviors continue until there's a reason they can't anymore. It's an excellent day for setting boundaries. It will solve problems; what you decide will stick.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The excitement mounts toward a special event. The work you do today will make it all the more special. You will be commended for planning ahead instead of leaving it until the last minute.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your direction may not be so sure, but you'll get a better idea as you go. So don't wait to be certain about the destination. It will reveal itself to you in the perfect time.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 24). This is among your most eventful years because you don't overthink the good luck. You jump in, and enjoy the carnival ride. There's something to settle in September before you can move forward in the relationship. You'll make more than two key deals before 2019 that set you up for a lucrative year. Libra and Leo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 20, 45, 33 and 17.
