Avoid shopping or making important decisions after 9:30 PM EDT today (from 6:30 PM to 11:15 PM PDT). After that, the Moon moves from Sagittarius into Capricorn.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Today is the perfect day to travel somewhere because you need a change of scenery. Do whatever you can so that you feel a sense of adventure and stimulation. Go somewhere you’ve never been before because you will feel gratified to learn something new.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Discussions about inheritances, shared property and insurance issues will favour you today. Get your ducks in a row and defend your best interests. In particular, these discussions might relate to real estate, a family business or domestic situation.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Because the Moon is in a sign that is opposite your sign today, you have to go more than halfway when dealing with others. This simply requires a little cooperation and tact. In two weeks, when the Moon is in your sign, others will have to cooperate with you!
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
You might have to work on behalf of someone else today because you need to perform a service or cater to their needs. Fear not. You aren’t being a martyr. This is just how things are rolling out today. Do what you can to get better organized.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
This is a playful, fun-loving day, which is why it’s an excellent time to explore social outings, fun activities with kids and sports events. Accept all invitations to party! You will also be productive in areas related to the entertainment world and show business.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Home and family are your top priority today. In fact, you will enjoy having a chance to cocoon at home and relax among familiar surroundings. Do whatever you can so that you have a warm feeling in your tummy. Pamper yourself.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Today you have strong need to communicate to others. Not only do you want to talk to someone and of course, listen — you want to have a meaningful bond with this person. You want to discuss real things. You don’t want to dally in superficial chitchat.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Something to do with earnings, cash flow and money is on your mind today. You might be thinking of asking for a raise? Whatever occurs might involve a boss or a parent. One thing is certain, financially speaking, you can benefit from real estate this year.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Things will tend to go your way today because the Moon is in your sign. Having said that, when the Moon is in your sign, (this happens for 2 1/2 days every month) you become more emotional. Keep this in mind and do your best to stay chill.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You might want to withdraw from the busyness of your daily world today and seek out solitude or some peace and quiet so that you can catch your breath. Now and then, it’s good to do this to get grounded. Afterwards, you’ll be more ready to sally forth into your world!
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
This is an excellent day for a heart-to-heart discussion with a female acquaintance. You might seek out this person’s advice. Possibly, they will help you in some way with your future goals? (This could be a continuation of yesterday’s conversation.)
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Once again, you are high viz. today, which means people notice you more than usual, especially bosses, parents, teachers and the police. (Oh yes, take notice. You might have to do some damage control.) When others are looking at you, put your best foot forward!

As an August 17th birthday personality, you are likely to be aggressive and somehow or another, you take over other people’s projects. In light of this, you could stand a lesson in respecting the rights of others.
I know, you want to get ahead in life but life is not predictable, and you must be flexible…if you want to succeed. Patience is one of the keys. Being hasty will only make you take the wrong decisions.

As a child, maybe someone badgered you. As an adult, you feel the repercussions of that kind of behavior. You treat children with affection and feel the need to give them something to laugh about because of this.

As far as your money is concerned, you like what it can buy for you. Diamonds, designer shoes that do not hurt, the best furnishings and a black card that is the life of a lion.
Because of your fate as a child, the August 17 zodiac shows that you are prone to psychological disadvantages that could affect you mentally and physically.

Daily Wiccan Practices
You probably already have some daily rituals or personal superstitions, so try combining these ideas with your usual routine in different ways until you find your preferred way to be a Wiccan:
When you wake up, greet the day by doing a Sun Salutation or a simple Wiccan Meditation like a Circle Casting visualization. You can burn some incense along with it. On this same page, you will find daily recommendations for incenses, crystals and teas. ⭐ Save it to your Bookmarks!
When drinking your morning tea or coffee, you can use a spoon to stir it in a clockwise direction to attract something, or counterclockwise to repel something. Focus on your intention and then clear your mind. If you need ideas, try these Tea Meditations.
You can also draw a symbol or sigil at the bottom of your cup with some honey and then pour your drink over it.
Explore and build up your inner temple so you can always conjure it quickly. Having a sacred space in your mind allows you to cast tools without spells and to easily ground yourself.
Set up an altar for your ancestors, deities, or spirit guides and say a Wiccan prayer every day upon waking up or when going to bed. You can also place your offerings there.
Carry crystals or personal amulets in your pocket or around your neck, so they remind you of your Magical powers. See How to charge an amulet here and find Crystal Attunements here.
Consecrate or charge things like jewelry, makeup brushes, cooking utensils, musical instruments, etc. These are all part of your path and your identity as a Wiccan or a Witch.
Write in your journal, also known as your Book of Mirrors every day.
Find pages and spells for your Book of Shadows and print them out on printer-friendly parchment paper (link to Amazon).
Track the moon phases and tune in to its changing energies. Decide what’s the best time to cast spells, rituals and meditations.
Grow a garden full of many different plants, aromatic herbs and shrubs. Learn about Herbal Witchcraft. Every day go out and spend some time to clear your mind and become more intimate with your spirituality and intuition.
