Daily Horoscopes: 17/02/2018

Aries

You’ll never change someone’s mind about religion or politics, so stop trying. When dealing with someone who has different beliefs, stick to noncontroversial subjects. You may discover you like the same movies, artists and musicians. Even if you find you have nothing in common, you can still be civil. It’s a matter of respecting everyone’s right to be their own person. The world would be a very boring place if everyone had identical convictions. Open your mind; something good will flow in.

Taurus

Arguing over joint finances has drained your energy. Take this opportunity to become more independent. This could mean anything from opening your own bank account, getting a better job or ending a toxic relationship. You’ve always worked hard. Having someone spend your earnings on frivolous things makes you upset. There’s no reason you should feel obligated to support someone else’s lavish lifestyle when it puts you in debt. Summon your courage do what’s best for you.

Gemini

Nagging your best friend or amour won’t change their behaviour. If you’re tired of a stale dynamic, you must make the move. Have you been saddled with all the housework? Let the chores go and take a class. Are you being spoken to in a disrespectful manner? Stop responding to these comments and give yourself positive affirmations. Is your other half struggling with an addiction? Join a support group. You have more control over your life than it seems.

Cancer

You’re tired of picking up the slack for a lazy colleague. Resist the temptation to berate them in a public setting. You’ll come away looking petty while they’ll emerge smelling like a rose. It’s better to invite your fellow worker out for coffee. Explain how their behaviour has been affecting your own work performance. Give specific examples of how their failure to do their job has created more work for you. If they remain indifferent, file an official report with human resources.

Leo

Emphasising the physical side of a relationship will cause hurt feelings. Your amour may not be in the mood to cuddle. Instead of pressing them for intimacy, ask what is wrong. It may be necessary for your other half to get counselling for a troubling emotional problem. Getting this issue in the open is critical to your relationship. By demonstrating sensitivity and compassion for their situation, you’ll maintain a loving bond. Find other ways to show your love. Compliments and considerate gestures work wonders.

Virgo

There’s a lot of stress on the family front. Relatives are arguing over political and cultural matters. These squabbles won’t be resolved by hurling insults at each other. Resist the impulse to play referee. You have better things to do with your time. When it comes to dealing with relatives, treat everyone with courtesy. If they can’t return the favour, put the relationship on hold. There’s no need to subject yourself to abuse. Surround yourself with supportive friends instead.

Libra

When you’re bored, you tend to pick fights. There are better ways to get intellectual stimulation. Taking a course or entering a competition will be a more rewarding use of your time. Has a neighbour or relative been provoking you with obnoxious remarks? Keep this pest at a distance. There’s no reason you should answer their obnoxious comments. If they accuse you of being rude, give them a polite smile and walk away. They’ll get frustrated and look for someone else to bother.

Scorpio

Careful budgeting will stop you from getting into a difficult financial situation. When you’re not mindful about money, you fritter it away on things that don’t give much pleasure. Keep a record of everything you buy, even if it’s as small as a pack of gum. At the end of the week, review all these purchases. You’ll quickly see a pattern of wasteful behaviour. The sooner you identify this bad habit, the faster you will conquer it.

Sagittarius

Being too aggressive will result in a lost opportunity. Although you want to give a relative a sense of direction, the pressure you are exerting on them will be deeply resented. Rather than urging them to take a certain path, make a strategic retreat. Show respect for their judgment, regardless of which decision they make. It’s healthier to have a good relationship than establish dominance over your loved one. Model your behaviour after someone who was supportive and encouraging when you were a child.

Capricorn

Beating yourself up results in lost opportunities. Everyone makes mistakes. It’s part of the human experience. The important thing is not that you failed to hit the mark, but that you’re willing to learn from these errors. Monitor your internal thoughts closely. Whenever you catch yourself thinking something disparaging, change the words to an affirmation. You’ll make much more progress by encouraging yourself to do better than berating yourself. At first, this practice will seem artificial and silly. Stick with it; positive thinking has tremendous benefits.

Aquarius

Friends are pressuring you to take a certain path, but you’re not willing to follow their advice. Be willing to break away from the pack, even if it means the ending of some alliances. Going against your conscience will be cause for serious regret. This is especially true if you’re being asked to engage in unfair or illegal business practices. There’s no point in jeopardising your professional reputation for quick cash. Take the high road. Those who truly care about you will remain loyal.

Pisces

Throwing your power around will cause great resentment. Although you’re able to influence people’s lives, you should refrain from making hurtful decisions. Always look for the solution that benefits the greatest amount of people. Explain your rationale for taking a certain path. You are very compassionate. By letting your kind heart guide your choices, you’ll earn the love and respect of your community. You’ll also attract abundance in surprising ways. There’s no joy in being successful but loathed.
