Today's Horoscope For Friday, August 25, 2017 For Each Zodiac Sign

The BEST Daily Horoscope For Friday, August 25, 2017 All Zodiac Signs

Loving yourself and taking care of you, star signs!

Your horoscope for today is IN the house! 

We have the Void of Course (which can slow down productivity) of a waxing crescent Moon entering into Libra, this evening. Venus enters Leo and The Sun remains in Leo. In case you missed the mini-astrology lesson on what this all really means, there's a reason why it matters which planet force is influenced by the energy of a particular zodiac sign. 

The moon your subconscious reflection of self. As subconscious minds enter awareness, there are times when this happens suddenly, strongly, or subtly.

These traits aren't dominant but influential and enlighten a zodiac sign in a certain way under the influence of a particular energy. Taking into consideration the amount of reflection of the moon and whether it's a waning or waxing Moon, determines how your sign will manifest its own qualities. For a waxing crescent Moon, this means there may be instability of certain traits such as balance or stability and the re-establishing of order in one's life when things happen unexpectedly in life.

Venus is the planet that guessed it, love! So, as Venus is empowered by Leo, you can just imagine what that may mean. Leo lovers are passionate souls with a bit of edge when it comes to ego. So, a lover who may be ego-sensitive when Venus is in Leo may need a bit of tender loving when pride gets wounded, even unintentionally. 

Now, the Sun, as you probably already know is the dominating planet of a zodiac sign's qualities and why it's also the most commonly referred to when discussing zodiac signs and personalities. This is the you that the world sees most, and the you that shines brightest when you're comfortable and in your elements. That's why some signs may have certain common traits. But, a Leo, who was raised by Pisces parents, and has Pisces influencing one of their other 12 houses may have Pisces tendencies when the Moon is in Pisces. 

This does happen, and it's perfectly fine. The nature of the zodiac is cycling of life lessons, and we all have a lot to learn along our journey. The order of each planet and the position of Mercury which is currently in Scorpio and entering Virgo means that the energy of these signs fuels the motives and desires of that day. This is also why certain signs experience a burst of energy on one day and not others. 

Today, these Earth, Air, and Water zodiac signs experience a cosmic power boost this Friday: Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius, and Aquarius have a power day (and, Libra you get a double dose of energy).

Some zodiac signs (especially those with Libra as a descending sign in one of their houses) will notice that regaining their focus from distractions may not be as easy as yesterday.

Other star signs may find themselves distracted by love interests or thinking about how to create security in relationships. 

A few zodiac signs need to take a step back to re-evaluate their circumstances and come up with a better strategy to make things work at home or in business. 

Best activities to tackle today involving nesting and making your home life cozy: sewing, baking, shopping for comfort items, and sadly, thanks to Mercury in retrograde, you may find your tech needs an upgrade or backup (Don't say we didn't warn you!).

Air, Water, Fire, and Earth signs: Friday, August 25, 2017 expect to have a dynamic and playful day.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries, focus your attention on your gifts. There are times when you over give in acts of service, and although it's great to be charitable, you may find yourself needing to take a step back and serve yourself.

The areas that you may need to draw attention to most is (again) tuning into your inner voice. Look for areas of harmony (some work should be easy and this is a sign of 'flow'). 

Warning during the moon's time of waning: Don't ignore your gut. Follow instinct instead.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus, focus your attention on your releasing stress. There are times when you lose sight of your own needs and wants for the sake of helping others. 

This opens your time but closes your heart and can make you feel less compassionate about things you'd ordinarily feel passionate about. Your time spent helping can also lead to feeling out of touch with your intuition. Although it may be counterintuitive, it might be time to leave some of the work duties behind and enjoy adventure and fun this weekend to revive your spirits. 

Warning during the moon's time of waning: Ignore negative self-talk and believe in yourself.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini, focus your attention on your discipline. There are times when you feel hopeless in situations that are out of your hands and causes you to feel like you've failed.

Although there are times when having faith seems like it just doesn't work, don't give up on what you truly believe. Although there are actions that seem unnatural when circumstances are not what you like, remain true to yourself. 

Warning during the moon's time of waning: Let go of what you can't control and be more like true self.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer, focus your attention on your others.  There are times when you prefer routine over change, and sometimes that's what other people in your life seem to symbolize— more of what you don't want.

Instead, return to that innocence of childhood where you used to believe in things like love and people helping one another for the sake of kindness. 

Today, expect something to happen that catches your attention that's an invitation for you to play apart in a meaningful way.

Warning during the moon's time of waning: Take action rather than waiting for things to come to you.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leo, focus your attention on your personal growth.  There are times when you hear or see a truth about yourself that you may not feel comfortable with but know it's time to improve. Listening to your critics can actually be helpful to you today. Ask yourself where might the smallest element of truth exists and evaluate that area. 

You may find your instinct is to ignore what you see, but instead, take your time and learn more about who you are as expect wonderful things to come your way.

Warning during the moon's time of waning: Worrying that there's a lack of resources. Share instead.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo, focus your attention on your fears. There are times when false evidence appears real (F.E.A.R) but these are sweet moments of awakening that you can't afford to miss out on. You may find yourself looking at the negatives of a situation but try to focus on what's good. 

There are people in your life to guide you and help you to find the way back to fearless living and whole happiness.

Warning during the moon's time of waning: Be thankful and appreciate the little things.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius, focus your attention on your curiosity. There are times when you choose safety over your dreams because of the fear of the unknown.

Your dreams are only as real as you allow them to be so open your mind to the possibility and see things unfold. 

Warning during the moon's time of waning: Surrender control and don't try to hold on to what you don't want.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libra, focus your attention on your life. There are times when you can get caught up in having things as opposed to enjoying them. Be gentle with yourself and perhaps consider taking a day of minimalism. You will find yourself freer as you focus less on things and more on you.

Warning during the moon's time of waning: Judgmental thoughts.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpio, focus your attention on your freedom. There are times when you have to start all over again but didn't want to. This could be a relationship or a job, or even something that you depended upon for consistency and simplicity in your life. 

You may need to recenter your attention on the opportunity behind the loss and ask for divine protection from the powers that be as you choose a new path.

Warning during the moon's time of waning: Anger when feeling rejected.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn, focus your attention on your idea of equality. There are times when you may feel a bit jealous of what someone else has but forgetting just how much you have, too. There are times when you have to go through more hoops or hardships to get what seems to come easily to someone else.

You may have to work harder and get fewer breaks, but with lessons comes wisdom

Warning during the moon's time of waning: Giving up. Sometimes you're 'three feet from gold.'

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius, focus your attention on your ability to forgive others. There are times when you are meant to be around people who are just like you and with similar values, but other times when you must deal with individuals who don't fit your version of ideal. You may find yourself needing more patience and hoping for harmony.

Practice waiting well.

Warning during the moon's time of waning: Impatience.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces, focus your attention on your guilty feelings.  There are times when you may feel like it's up to you to care for others, and when you can't you feel bad for not being there.

Remember that others have guardians watching over them too. You can invite help with your spirit of kind thoughts and send light and love their way. 

Warning during the moon's time of waning: Learn to relax when you can.
