Today's Horoscope For Wednesday, August 16, 2017 For Each Zodiac Sign

What's your Wednesday like? Find out with by reading your daily horoscope!

It's Wednesday, star signs and your daily horoscope is IN!

We have a waning moon in Gemini with a Leo sun. 

Today, Aries, Leo, Libra, and Aquarius have a power day with Taurus getting a double dose of energy. 

To know Leo is to love one. Their minor traits often manifest as grandiosity, and interestingly Gemini mirrors the same. So, if you've ever been told you have a larger than life mindset or a big ego, you might find yourself living true to this reputation all day.

Leo and Gemini relationships are dynamic with a bit of clashing of the egos. Free spirited Gemini can crush the deep longing for connection and physical touch and childlike loyalty expressed by Leo. As we have a season where the Moon and Sun interact in these two signs, zodiac signs with influences of either (or both) signs will sense a conflict of interests. Love requires interdependence. Business is all about relationships. But, there's a longing to be free and do things your own way.

However, Sun in Leo brings to the surface a need for experimentation especially in the realm of identity, and interestingly Gemini would love to know the answer to that, too, if only they had the determination to see it to completion. 

As these two influences unfold in the day, expect to see manifestations of this energy in work relationships and in areas where progress is being made for a higher good.

However, what's a little adventurous spirit without a universal monkey wrench thrown into the mix? If you're feeling the effects of Mercury in retrograde, it's all part of your journey. Don't worry.

Wondering what this means you'll need to get the most out of today per your astrological star sign

Some zodiac signs may feel the need to take risks and test waters in the pursuit of a career. 

Other zodiac signs, perhaps those with entrepreneurial spirits might decide to start their own businesses instead of caving into a 9-5 job grind.

Check out your horoscope per your zodiac sign below and see what's in store for you!

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries, you may feel like today is a bit of an uphill climb in career, and expect a little bit of overlap into your home life as well. 

The day may start off with you wishing you could get away to gather your thoughts, but chances are the time to do so won't come until later in the day, or even tomorrow. 

You may find yourself juggling concerns centered around finances and how to help others in need. Your wisdom will guide you through the day, however, do surround yourself with music as it will help you connect with your subconscious self. 

Your warning for today is to guard against ego as it may close you off to your spiritual self. Make it a point to spend at least 5 minutes of quiet time in a mindfulness activity.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus, you may find yourself juggling a lot of things today, and stress management might be a serious concern as you do. Your expressive side will come out more than usual as you share ideas. Like Aries, if you're an introverted soul, you may wish you had more rest and relaxation time, but work calls. 

You may be breaking the mold and patterns of the past, particularly in the area of family. Perhaps you're doing work that's never been done before so you don't have a reference to look to for guidance. At the end of the day, when all is said in done, you should feel a sense of accomplishment and closer to the freedom you long to have.

Your warning for today is to guard against past memories. Instead of regret learn from your mistakes and consider how to increase spiritual awareness from this point on.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini, although you enjoy leading, this time you may want to give the responsibility to someone else. You may notice that a project is coming together sooner than planned, or perhaps your area of expertise isn't in this part of the project's development. So, it's all right to defer to someone else. Although it's not like you to igve up the reigns of control to others, this is a power move for you. You communicate "enough for all" well with your others. 

At the end of the day, you might feel like you didn't do your part, but it's all part of your own journey in a good way.

Your warning for today is to guard against controlling people and tendencies. Use intellect and flexible thinking to help you achieve your goals.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer, something extraordinary is set to take place, and you might be the one who notices it first. There is a situation where people aren't getting along well, and you might have tuned out for the sake of your own preservation.

Right now, it might not be the right time yet to display compassion. It might even be appropriate to lay low until the situation passes.

Your warning for today is to guard against feeling powerless. You create the destiny you want by the choices you make.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leo, you may feel blocked in your ability to express yourself emotionally right now. You have been patient, but at this time, your resolve has not only worn thin, but it's gone. 

Time to tune into your higher self to regain perspective and hear your inner voice. Action doesn't always have to be visible, and this time is meant to be one that allows you to learn deep within. 

By the end of the day, expect pleasant surprise and gentle affection extended your way that feeds your spirit. 

Your warning for today is to guard against fearfulness. You can change the things about yourself that you don't like when you decide it no longer works for you.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo, has someone broken your trust recently? If so, you don't need to beat yourself up and look to see what you might have done to avoid the fall. The truth will set you free, so it's your call on what to do next. You may know the truth, but now is a time for gentleness towards others. Perhaps you need to let go gently, or hold your tongue until the anger passes. At the end of the day, your guardian angels surround you to give you the strength you need to pull through.

Your warning for today is to guard against competitive thinking. You have tremendous power to call abundance and prosperity to yourself without worry that someone has more than you do.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius, a part of you may regretfully feel like holding back resources from others. If you've been asked to share something with someone you might wonder if they will care for it the way you do, or worse, give it back. You have worked hard for the things that you have, and for good reason, you want to maintain power over your personal posessions and space. In this moment, honor your desires, and don't worry if others think you're being stingy. You have to do what you need to do.

Your warning for today is to guard against busy activities. Routines are intended to help you get to where you want to go, but not hold you back from who you're meant to be.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libra, you may feel a bit topsy turvy today in every area of your life where you've been in control and done well. Instead of worry, count your blessings. Abundant thinking will get you through the day. 

Your warning for today is to guard against victim thinking. There are situations that are out of one's control, but thankfully time allows us to distance ourselves when the moment is right. You can still claim your fate even after a difficult situation. Just choose to do so.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpio, sometimes knowing too much can be a burden. If you've become aware of a problem, but not sure how to fix things, this can make you worry about timing. However, there's a situation where either an old friend or someone you trust will come to save the day. By the end of the day, you may decide to have a night in rather than go out. If you do, spend time reflecting on your family of origin. Look at old family photos to remind you how far you have come.

Your warning for today is to guard against forgetfulness. There are people in your life who have moved on to the other side of the universe, but they wish to guide you in spirit. Remember to listen.

A change you might have anticipated is put off for a bit longer. But, progress will come back around soon.
