Horoscopes: SUNDAY, AUGUST 26, 2018

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You may not know it yet, but you've already been accepted by someone whose opinion really matters to you. Of course, what counts is your ability to accept and appreciate yourself.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). A request that you deem reasonable is nonetheless extremely difficult for someone to deliver on. Stay upbeat while you politely pass, in favor of shopping around.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). So many tried, but you're the one who is here. You only tried a little. You were a natural, and so you landed exactly in the spot. Don't back off. Apply your talent and effort.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You'll hone your technical skills. Practice makes better. You'll need these skills in the weeks to come. Tonight, you'll vibe with someone who moves through the world differently.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). While some look around and see problems, you'll sense that there's opportunity in it. Some of the opportunities are harder to see than others. Just keep your eyes open and wait.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may be operating under the radar today, without attention or compensation, consequence or reward. Enjoy the low stakes while they last. Time to learn.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You don't think for a second that just because you're a certain age, you're grown. There's a lot of growing up to do at every age. Mostly it happens through new experience. Get some.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When the logistics don't click and the plan doesn't pan out, this is nothing more than signpost to a better idea. Make a quick shift, and start the new plan.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It's one thing to keep a finger on the pulse and do your best to stay current, and it's another to be enslaved by the need to be on trend. Take what you can use from culture without following blindly.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The immature assume that if it's not going right currently, then it will never go right. You'll help them calm down as you take a breath and try again. Persistence wins out.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Imagining the worst-case scenario is an entertainment for some, but don't worry yourself. Go forward with velocity. When you're willing to face the worst consequence, it often happens that it doesn't come up.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A change of scenery will not solve a problem, but it will put you in a different mindset so you can see new sides of it, or perhaps choose not to identify with it at all.
