Gemini forecast for Friday August 14, 2020

Although I recently suggested that some people endure crises of confidence because it gives them something to do, I didn't mean to suggest that this was an intentional way of being. Yet, much as the virtues of confidence, clarity and conviction are extolled, there's a lot to be said for being prepared to explore uncertainty and shades of grey. If you courageously explore the space between prejudice and old beliefs, the weekend brings a chance to learn valuable lessons and question old assumptions.

To understand the world you must first understand yourself. There's so much more to your story than your Sun-sign. A full horoscope reading based on your birth details will give you the whole picture... and may just change your life. Download yours now!

Some lawyers might dream of a job in the public sector. Some accountants might wish they'd studied medicine. Some politicians might suspect they'd be better suited to public relations. It's easy to dismiss the things we're good at - and romanticise skills and professions at which other people excel. Banish any such thoughts today! The Finger of Fate encourages you to focus on what makes you you; on where your talents lie. You might just find that you can achieve something extraordinary.

It's a shame that we won't vote for politicians who are undecided about their views. Sadly, people who seem to know all the answers often turn out to be wrong! At least people who are wavering between options are open to new information. They also manage to avoid the uncomfortable sensation of being confident that they were 'right', only to find out that they had the wrong end of the stick. Look out for new information that will show you something you don't know. The revelation will be priceless.

There's no doubt that the truth can sometimes be painful... but so can a trip to the dentist. And there are some things that just have to be done - they do us good, even though they're not particularly enjoyable. Of course, we need to watch out for a sense of masochism; it can be easy to slip into a way of being in which we subject ourselves to all sorts of unpleasant things because we think they might 'do us good'. You're facing something that needs to be faced. It will do you no harm.

The problem with wisdom is that it's often contradictory. 'They say, for example, that 'great minds think alike', but they also say that 'fools seldom differ'. Should we do a poll to find out which is most popular? But that would only bring us back to our second maxim! Should we only listen to knowledgeable individuals? Perhaps, but then again, a stopped clock is always right twice a day. Don't think too much about who's saying what today. As your ruler links with Uranus, go with your own instincts.

Your Weekly Love Focus Horoscope: You set out on your quest with tremendous purpose. Filled with vigour and determination, nothing could stop you. But all of a sudden you're faltering. Is it because the once-clear sky is beginning to cloud over? Should you turn back and make a dash for the shelter of your old life? That's a tempting prospect right now. But don't heed those inner doubts. Listen instead to the message the cosmos is giving you. The Finger of Fate is not only pointing the way, but giving you a gentle push to where you need to be.

Your Weekly Horoscope: 'Anyway, the thing is, what I really mean, yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen'. The lyrics of the Elton John song epitomise romantic feelings in a delightfully playful way. As the Finger of Fate focuses on your ruling planet Mercury, the infectiously good-humoured side of your personality is highlighted. If a key relationship needs a boost of energy, this is the week to pay it some attention. It may not involve romance; but heartfelt, honest affirmations and signs of appreciation will fill your heart with joy.

They say that, 'if you take care of the pennies, the pounds will take care of themselves'. At least, that's the English version. The Japanese have a theory about Yen, and there's a similar adage about dollars too. They all work on the logic that if you can keep the little things in order, there's no need to worry about the larger ones. But what if the big thing's really big? At what point do we need to cast maxims aside and follow our common sense? Luckily, the 'big thing' you're tackling this weekend is very positive indeed.
