August 28: Your daily horoscope
IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY:
You may think you have the answer to everyone's ills, and maybe you do, but they're not going to listen to you. The message of the planets on your birthday this year is that the only life you can control is your own. Inner peace comes first.
ARIES (March 21 - April 20):
Good intentions are not enough – you must live up to your ideals. Make it your aim today to treat everyone you meet, even strangers, in the same way as you treat those you love beyond question.
TAURUS (April 21 - May 21):
There may be times when it seems as if you are losing control of everything in your life but it's not true, so steer clear of self-pity. On balance, things are progressing quite well for you at the moment.
GEMINI (May 22 - June 21):
You may be tempted to try something outrageous today, something you believe will convince the doubters that you have what it takes. But what if it goes wrong? By all means be bold, but don't abandon common sense.
CANCER (June 22 - July 23):
With the travel area of your chart heavily emphasized, being on the move will be a lot of fun – but it will also have its dangers. Delays are going to happen whether you like it or not, so don't get angry.
LEO (July 24 - Aug. 23):
Just because someone occupies a position of authority does not mean you can trust what they say. With communications planet Mercury under negative influences, a lot of what you hear is probably nonsense.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 - Sept. 23):
Knowledge is power and the more you know about what others are up to, the better placed you will be to get something out of it. Are we talking blackmail here? Of course not, perish the thought!
LIBRA (Sept. 24 - Oct. 23):
Take what even your friends tell you with a pinch of salt. They may not lie to you on purpose, but they are a bit confused about what's going on. You don't need their advice – your conscience will guide you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22):
Focus only on things you understand. If you drift into areas where your knowledge is limited, you may fall foul of people who like to prey on trusting types like you. Be cautious. You don't have to prove yourself.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 - Dec. 21):
Do not – repeat, not – sweep important topics under the carpet. If you ignore them now, they will come back bigger and tougher to deal with later on. Don't worry about being unpopular – you've got issues to resolve.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 20):
You may be a bit blunt in some of the things you say over the next 24 hours, but that's okay. For too long certain people have been avoiding the realities of the current situation. It's time to get real.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19):
Your mind will race off in all sorts of weird and wonderful directions today and it could be a lot of fun – but it could also be dangerous. Try not to make important decisions until after Friday's full moon.
PISCES (Feb. 20 - Mar. 20):
Focus on your own needs and desires and make out that other people don't exist. That might sound a bit selfish, but you've done more than your share for the greater good of late. Look after No. 1 today.
