Horoscope for August 23-29

Cross-posted from Aloha Astro

Aries (March 21st - April 20th)
You have a busy week ahead of you, Aries. Work demands a great deal of your time. Some of that time may not be spent on work itself, but on the relationships you have with people related to your job. You may have been keeping a secret, looking the other way, making allowances, or covering for someone and this just doesn’t feel good anymore. Perhaps you have simply been taken advantage of and now you are becoming aware of this fact. Whatever the complication may be, you will go through several stages surrounding the issue this week. First, you will become aware of an imbalance and you may try to change things in a non-confrontational way. When that fails, you withdraw to gather your thoughts before you take a stand. Finally, the situation is resolved and you reclaim your sovereignty and integrity.

Taurus (April 21st - May 20th)
A wonderfully creative week is in store for you, Taurus. Bulls who work in theater, the arts, advertising, or any field where aesthetics and visual beauty are important will be in top form and high demand now. The first half of the week finds you loving every minute of your enthusiastic flow of creativity. You may use your mate as a sounding board for your ideas or find a romantic spark is kindled between you and a collaborative partner, which makes the work even more exciting. So much energy being used on the mental and physical level takes its toll near the end of the week and you may find it necessary to recharge your batteries and spend time alone. The stars hint you may not be completely alone this weekend, when the evenings hold the promise of shared affection.

Gemini (May 21st - June 21st)
The urge to travel or relocate is very strong now, Gemini. Frankly, you are bored with the routine and find yourself daydreaming or reading about nomads, gypsies, pirates and such. Well, the Mercury retrograde in Virgo can help you find a scratch for your itch. It is possible to move somewhere culturally different or find work that keeps you moving and meeting new people. Speaking of home, someone may visit near the later part of the week who curtails your freedom and overstays their welcome. You may have to make a supreme effort to be polite and well-mannered in their presence. Time spent seeking information online this weekend can open new vistas for you and help you find a way to make your dreams of a new way of life a reality.

Cancer (June 22nd - July 22nd)
Communications, sales, and negotiations are in focus this week, Cancer. Your approach to interacting with businesses or organizations is based on a belief in fairness and equality. Unfortunately, you may discover that not everyone has the same belief as you. You are not afraid to express your views in this matter, even if it means severing a business tie or losing a sale. By doing this, you actually open the door to increased prosperity and future contacts with people or businesses who are more trustworthy, respected, and successful. You are learning to never settle for anything less than best in all areas of your life. Do something to beautify your home this weekend.

Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)
Mercury retrograde is asking you to take a second look at your income and budget, Leo. After you examine what comes in and what goes out, take steps to increase your cash flow. You don’t have to think only of cutting back on expenditures. Turn your thoughts to ways you can ask for more, refinance loans, or turn a hobby into a profitable side business. Leos with partners may go back and forth over money issues this week in an attempt to develop a budget and long range plan that suits both individuals. A dream or plan you both may have involves a trip or a return to school. By the end of the week, you will have a clear shared plan and domestic harmony. By having tackled the mundane and the practical, you are one step closer to realizing a wished-for ideal.

Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
A new cycle begins this week, Virgo. You are feeling more like yourself now and are happy to be more social. Time may be spent on cleaning out your wardrobe, creating a new look for yourself. Suddenly, everything around you looks old, dull, and careworn. You may be drawn to more vibrant colors and a more sophisticated, stylized look in your clothes and home. Whether single or matched, you will be highly magnetic this week. How you choose to use your sex appeal is up to you. Communication with a friend or a visit to a website may point you in the direction of your dream home location. It could be a place that gives you a sense of belonging. You may find you have a special skill that is in demand there or learn there are community organizations in the town that interest you. Check it out further. A move is not immediate, but you are feeling the longing for your own special nest or castle.

Libra (September 23rd - October 23rd)
I know you can be indecisive sometimes, Libra. It just drives you crazy to make a decision because you know as soon as you choose one thing, you are bound to want the other. This week, you enter a pea soup zone of murky confusion where you are not even sure what your choices are. Time spent in solitude and self examination might be helpful; however, time alone could be difficult to find. You are still attracting people and situations to you like crazy. Not all those people are true friends or have your best interests at heart. I strongly advise keeping work and pleasure separate now and I also recommend you stay the steady course at both work and committed relationships. Any sudden or erratic change you make in the work or love areas of your life may be a case of looking before you leap or jumping from the frying pan into the fire. Limit your connections to those who know you well or who have a verifiable reputation and avoid people who show up out of the blue with no background that can be checked.

Scorpio (October 24th - November 21st)
There is a friend or an organization, Scorpio, that wants to help you realize your dreams for your home and family. It will be up to you to open up and share what those desires are and ask for help. Be prepared for some intense examination and constructive criticism to follow. If you take the suggestions that result to heart and implement new behaviors or take a recommended action, you will be pleased to discover that you have a true workable plan that can solve your problems and help you create a living situation that makes you happy. You have been wanting a change, but you have been waiting to see it arrive – now you are ready to make it.

Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
You may have to install a revolving door this week, Sagittarius. Life is super busy with work and communication, possibly many short trips and errands to be run, and people knocking on your door at home or in the office. You are the person everyone is seeking for ideas, direction, and solutions. Midweek, a difference of opinion may arise between you and a friend. It could be that you just don’t have the time to chill and your friend takes it as a personal rejection. All of your socializing this week has a purpose behind it. There are some romantic aspects that affect you like everyone else this weekend, but it doesn’t look like your current level of interest in romance is all that strong. Time spent with a partner who can make you laugh or stimulate your mind is more enjoyable now than lust or courtship.

Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
Your word is gold this week, Capricorn. Your emotions are keenly aware of your sense of value and worth. That sense of worth has been increasing as you have become better at what you do and wiser about the ways of the world. This week, you decide it is time that you commanded more money for your knowledge and services and a better outpicturing of your personal value. Well, you can affirm all you want to the Universe, but unless you tell your employer or clients that you intend to receive more money, it’s not likely to arrive on its own. So, direct your words to the source of the gold. Some Capricorns may be published this week, teach a class, or find information to market that may also be a source of income. Demands of parenthood interfering with work may lead to a more accommodating flex schedule. By the end of the week, you are quite pleased with what you have accomplished.

Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
Come out of the closet, Aquarius. By attempting to fashion yourself and your creativity in ways that you think will please others, you are only moving further away from your true, authentic self. I know Aquarius is the sign that says “I know” (ha ha, can you guess an Aquarian is writing this?), but this week, I recommend you work with “I feel.” Put all your uncensored feelings out there, especially in your communications with others, and watch what happens. Do “I know” what will happen? No, but it should be an interesting week and it should also bring you more self esteem and abundance. And coming out of the emotional closet will bring down an avalanche of ideas that have been stuffed in that closet. Don’t let the small handful of people upset by your experiment be your judge and jury – you know there are always a few who like to complain.

Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
Relationship is your prime area of concern this week, Pisces. Whether you are single and looking or with someone already, the planets indicate you will be looking deeply at yourself and your motivations for relating. You have been evolving into a new person and it could be possible that you and a partner no longer recognize each other or know what to do with the shift of energies in the pattern of your relating. While the planets were demanding your attention in other areas of life, you avoided looking closely at your relationship or your own needs for intimacy and companionship. Suddenly, it feels as though someone turned on the light and you can’t avoid looking anymore. By doing so, you may discover that you must take some sort of action. What to do? Your new self may have a whole new set of needs and personal values. Make a list and see if the relationship meets the requirements of the list. If it does – great! Make time to connect and deepen your love. If not, lovingly discuss what must change. Use your list as a compass to guide you to a love who is looking for the new you.
