Today seems like a Mexican stand-off as it’s all about relationships and it may well be high noon for some of us.
Feelings seem heightened, emotions are running a tad steamy, demands may be unacceptable and caution may be the watchword rather going straight to guns.
You are not two law dogs facing off at either end of a dustbowl tumbleweed-strewn street, unclip your stubborn holsters and show your healing hands over a game of co-operative cards.
Virgo, cultivate that relationship that shows promise.
Libra, use your diplomatic skills to cast your spell over someone who is hard to tackle.
Ahead, you’ll find all the star signs’ horoscopes for August 9, 2022.
Read on for your full forecast.
March 21 to April 20
You may not be having such an adventurous time right now.
And with a chance that a dream opportunity could be harder to acquire than you thought, you might not be in the best of moods.
Your saving grace is the Sun in pleasure-seeking Leo urging you to indulge yourself regardless.
April 21 to May 21
Feelings could intensify and it may be over something quite trivial.
For some reason someone might be getting under your skin.
Mind, a more benevolent influence can help take the sting out of things by encouraging you to see the lighter side of the situation.
May 22 to June 21
Letting go is never easy, but the present star map is urging you to say goodbye to something that’s not doing you much good.
No matter how attached you are, this is the time to let it drift away.
You may be spurred on by a hard Saturn angle that enables you to make tough decisions.
June 22 to July 23
Tempted to compromise? If someone has been too demanding, why should you?
While this is one way to tackle the situation, it isn’t the only way.
You could also refuse to do anything, unless they approach you more respectfully.
Don’t play this down, especially if this has been ongoing.
July 24 to August 23
Despite your fun-loving outlook, you may be brought down to earth by aspects that make you aware of how hard life can be.
You might have intense feelings about matters that you can’t do anything about.
Your perspective will change and what is bothering you won’t seem so worrying.
August 24 to September 23
Certain relationships seem to be moving along very nicely, and showing promise, and it is these you may be keen to cultivate.
Contrast this scenario with another, in which you might be wary of someone and their motives, especially if they seem controlling.
Trust your feelings around this.
September 24 to October 23
You may be tempted to take on someone who is no pushover.
This is one time when your diplomatic side could be of great use to you.
Whether you back off or try to negotiate, do so with as much grace as you can muster.
They may even show a friendlier side if you do.
October 24 to November 22
Worried about something you’ve said or done?
If so, you could work yourself into a fever pitch thinking about it.
Yet it may not be as bad as you fear.
It’s possible the person in question barely noticed it, and you’ve made a big drama out of it.
November 23 to December 21
What will you do if you want something badly, but find you can’t afford it?
As Venus opposes Pluto across your financial axis, this intense and compulsive blend of energies could see you desperately seeking a way to buy it.
Even if it messes with your ability to pay the bills. Is it worth it?
December 22 to January 21
Feelings for someone could seem to strengthen over coming days, and might even border on the obsessive.
Mind, Venus’s face-off with Pluto is a temporary aspect and won’t last too long, so it’s possible that you may go from red hot to icy cold within the week.
January 22 to February 19
Is someone making an issue out of a matter that isn’t a big deal?
Maybe they’re looking at it from the wrong angle.
If it seems they’re geared up for a confrontation, you’d be wise to steer clear.
You have so many better ways to spend your time than dealing with bitter people.
February 20 to March 20
It’s possible to be so cautious, that you end up making something a chore rather than an activity that should be fun.
You may be prone to fears, doubts and compulsive ideas that aren’t based on reality.
Attracted to someone you’re hanging out with and trying to play it cool? Don’t play it cool.
