Horoscopes for 17 August 2017

Aries
Summoning effort and enthusiasm isn't an easy task when our inspiration levels are low. We need to be able to see clearly what might result from digging deeply into our motivational reserves. You might be wondering if you have any such reserves left where an area of your world is concerned. Effort made recently seems to bring a result on one level and no more. Inspiration, in some way, is coming. That will boost your motivation levels where they need boosting.
Taurus
Hindsight is playing a big part in you wishing you'd done something differently recently. You pursued a certain plan with no real expectations, probably to see what a bit of effort might have brought you. Can you honestly say you're disappointed with what resulted from that tiny bit of effort? You have something to be proud of, even if a result fell considerably short of what you wanted. Soon, you'll be able to draw upon experience gained to create something better.
Gemini
Sometimes, all it takes is one word from a certain person to boost our spirits and enthusiasm levels. We don't always want endless streams of praise; just quietly spoken confirmation that we're doing something right is often enough. If you've felt as if your pursuit of something close to your heart has been devoid of praise from certain quarters, then you expect, very soon, to feel more supported. It might take only one word from one person to boost your spirits.
Cancer
There's no point in crying over spilled milk. We know that popular saying relates to making a bigger deal of something that doesn't require an issue made of it. A bit of spilled milk is something easily resolved and moved on from, and it's worth bearing that in mind where a certain issue or bone of contention in your world is concerned. Is it really a big deal? Can something not simply be discussed, agreed and moved on from? An issue is as big as you choose to make it now.
Leo
Are you a bit too ambitious in some way? It could be argued that being a bit too ambitious has its benefits, if, by aiming our sights higher than necessary, we're more likely to end up where we wanted to be in the first place. If we aim at what we want, then we might have to settle for silver or bronze instead of gold. There's no harm in aiming your sights exceptionally high in some way now – provided you accept the increase in effort that will need to accompany your vision.
Virgo
You're respected for your methodical nature. Seriously, there are quite a few people who probably wish they possessed your eye for detail and ability to prioritize and organize. Hopefully, you're aware of this, but, if not, then you have a chance now to show one or two people how able you are to take control of a situation and steer it in the way it needs steering. A certain task requires considerable care and diligence, and you're about to prove why you're the best person for the job.
Libra
Beware responding to something in a reflex-like way. A situation arises, an automatic response presents itself and we give it, often without taking the time to consider if such a response is the most appropriate one. Your response needs and deserves more careful consideration. It might end up being the one you felt instinctively was needed in the first place but you'll at least feel reassured you've taken a step having thought it through properly.
Scorpio
As children, we learn about the need to be precise and thorough. We become aware of how one of our minuscule associates displays proudly their colorful masterpiece yet we discover they didn't color 'within the lines.' As adults, we can be just as critical. Is it your 'place' to point out a flaw in someone's plan or actions? It might be obvious to you they've taken an easy option or didn't adhere to some understood rules. However, if it makes them happy, leave them to it in the knowledge your result will be more impressive through not cutting corners.
Sagittarius
Not all journeys require maps. We've all experienced a feeling of being lost in unfamiliar surroundings yet have got to where we needed to be only by heading a particular direction. As long as we're heading in the right direction, it's usually only a matter of time before start receiving more detailed clues and signals about where we need to go. The cosmos is offering you such clues and signals now. When you see them, embrace them. They're a clear sign you're heading in the right direction!
Capricorn
Nowadays, medicine manufacturers ensure their products taste in a way that encourages people to buy and use them. At one time, there was no concern about how products tasted; the main concern was that they were seen as effective. In some way, the cosmos is providing the equivalent of a spoonful of sugar to accompany something you might find unpleasant. Trust that what you might be fearing or dreading is being made sweeter and less of a problem than you perceive it to be.
Aquarius
'Be careful what you wish for.' Such words usually imply a need to exercise caution when making a wish because we stand a chance of it being granted. Many of us would enjoy having such a dilemma. However, there are times when we find ourselves receiving something we've long wanted only to discover the passage of time has caused us to be less enthused about receiving it. You could experience something similar now or shortly. Don't be too dismissive of what's being granted to you. You wanted it once and might still want it more now than you realize.
Pisces
The world needs more dreamers. It needs more people prepared to take a step back and give thought to where we're going, not where we're at. Even the most serious, stony-faced, furrow-browed technological designer had to have dreamt a little at some point to create whatever it is they're creating. After all, most of the world's greatest inventions started out as a pipe dream. You now have a fantastic ability to draw others into a unique world of images and dreams. Let whoever chooses to join you come along for the ride!
