Horoscope for August 15-21

Cross-posted from Aloha Astro

Aries (March 21st - April 20th)
You and a partner may share a dream of home, family, and increased financial security this week. If you are single, a dream of finding the perfect partner could drive you to increase your income. The planets are giving you strong creative manifesting power that enables you to imagine what you desire and bring it into reality. For Rams wanting to conceive a child, the first two days of the week are an ideal time to try. An urge for change may be directed toward your career or home, but it may be something new inside you that wants to be expressed. Friends may mean well when giving you advice, but they can also confuse or limit you. Follow your own heart.

Taurus (April 21st - May 20th)
Your world will expand from the comfort of your own home this week, Taurus. Social networking and the Internet could be ways that you meet new people and learn new things. Your personal warmth, charm, and sense of humor are fired up by the glow of the sun, Venus, and Mercury, making you a magnet for attention and increasing your desire to be surrounded by kindred souls. You may also be dreaming of a new home or getting ready to move. Your self-esteem is getting a good boost, as well, because your communication skills are in high demand. A piece of you is happily watching seeds of your future being sown now and, in your quiet moments, you wonder what fruit those seeds will bear. Watch that you don't commit to more work than you can handle at the end of the week.

Gemini (May 21st - June 21st)
"How can I make more money?" may be on your mind this week, Gemini. Creative ideas are going off like fireworks and you are willing to talk and promote yourself now. Trust your own instincts in business rather than the voice of establishment or anyone who tells you something can't be done. You do have a guardian angel, spirit guide, or an inner wisdom that only laughs at "No way" right now. A financial investment in yourself could bring a change in you that shifts your energy and allows you to accept fame, popularity, and greater success. Making money can become a game where you joyfully see your money grow rather than a chore you dread with diminishing returns.

Cancer (June 22nd - July 22nd)
Your energy output is high this week, Cancer, as you push to increase your income. The desire for more money or career growth connects you with more people. The more people you connect with, the more energy you pick up from others. Being a sensitive, emotional water sign, you know that you need to do an occasional boundary check and some energy balancing and clearing work. This is especially important now while you are more socially active or traveling to new environments. Home is always your refuge, so keep it serene and clutter-free to make the most of what little time you spend there this week. A change in your career plans or work schedule, or that of your partner's, may cause a touchy adjustment phase for a few days. Don't fall for an ideal or an image when it comes to an investment of your money. Ask to see facts and figures before making any big purchase or investment.

Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)
A re-commitment to a business plan, along with some revisions, is possible this week, Leo. You may have lost sight of your goal or what you want to create has changed. In work matters, you may shock co-workers, customers, or the boss with a new mindset or experimental methods. You are willing to try anything wherever you feel discontent or stagnant energy because any change feels better than treading water. There is some fogginess or confusion in the realm of romance. Venus, Mercury, and the sun all in your sign may have you too centered on yourself and your partner may wander or tire of hearing you talk so much about yourself. It is also possible that you just see the things that you want to see in a relationship or have unreal expectations. Whatever the case, look twice and appreciate what you have. Follow the old Golden Rule, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you," in all your interactions this week. "Walk a mile in their moccasins," is another apt adage to keep you humble and kind.

Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
Many things are happening for you in the subconscious or dream state, Virgo. You are coming to the end of a yearly cycle and preparing for a new one that is approaching. Periods of rest, retreat, and review blended with creative anticipation of the future are necessary to stay calm and stress-free. Wonderful connection aspects are in place now that can deepen existing relationships or help you find new friends or a lover who shares your same values and tastes. One such meeting may require you to step out of a comfort zone and do something new or make a decision about someone without investigation, thought, or review. Trust your intuition and body signals for correct choices. Trip planning or sales work may also be a big part of your week.

Libra (September 23rd - October 23rd)
A powerful work/money/business/career day happens for you this Monday, Libra. If you are applying for a job, starting a business, making a presentation, or having to make a strong impression in any way, the planets are behind you 100%. I hesitate to say that all this support can ward off the notorious Mercury retrograde effects on new endeavors, but if you can't wait until the end of August, do it Monday. Mercury retrograde can be a good time to renew, rework, or reintroduce something, in which case, Monday may make the second time the charm on an old project or plan. A group or public announcement, popularity, and demand for your product, service, or presence comes on the heels of Monday's launch. A bittersweet aspect may cause confusion if you are feeling like "more than friends" about a friend who just wants to be friends. If you have a mate, you may want more space and time with your friends than one-on-one now. The week ends with a possible major business or career success.

Scorpio (October 24th - November 21st)
The extremes of love can fuel your creativity this week, Scorpio. Your sign already feels the high and low, light and dark, sorrow and joy in everything as part of your perceptive, emotional nature, but the current planets are exaggerating the awareness of polarity. Meditating on the yin-yang symbol may help you feel balanced now. Creative and artistic, Scorpios can make good use of the energy of ardent desire and wistful longing in their charts now. Both in work and in love, there may be something that feels like it falls short of the mark or is not quite how you want it to be. Keep in mind that Scorpio is never happy when something comes too easily. In fact, the more challenging or dangerous something is, the more fascinated Scorpio becomes. Family may not like extra hours you spend on work now, especially if they have become accustomed to having you around most of the time. Parents who are back to a full-time schedule after spending summer vacation with their children may be sad school is resuming.

Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
Make no big money moves or changes this week, Sagittarius. Keep everything in the planning stage and use this week to get information, ask questions, and get honest testimonials or experienced advice. If you have children, they may require an outlay of more than you anticipated for back-to-school needs. This entire week involves errands, chores, and taking care of the details of daily living. Friends or an organization may be a source of more business or support for you. Instead of thinking something you want is unobtainable, why not be open to creative ways to receive what you want? A neighborhood yard sale, barter, or trade ad may help you manifest what you desire. Keep up an attitude of positive expectancy and gratitude for what you already have to help you receive more and spend less.

Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
Although we may still have some warm weather ahead, there is already a hint of fall in the air, Capricorn. Your sign is partial to crisp air, flannel shirts, wool sweaters, and leather boots. Many business-oriented Capricorns really get into the whole power business suit thing, which looks much snappier in the cooler months than in the hot, humid summer. Just like your sister earth sign, Virgo, is beginning to feel the approach of a new cycle, you are feeling the approach of a season that suits you well. Winter is your season of new beginnings, but fall is a harvest time and mustering of your mental and physical energy for a last great effort before you close out your year. The planets highlight communication and all kinds of relationships now, which help you push your plans forward. Mercury retrograde, Venus, and the sun help you go over business plans and long-term financial goals. If you, your family, or your partner must make adjustments, you can implement changes this week, but not without some fuss, perhaps!

Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
Working on yourself, your mind, and your beliefs about yourself and life in general is the true work of your week, Aquarius. There is an episode of the SpongeBob SquarePants cartoon where SpongeBob and Patrick decide to have an opposite day. This week, any time you catch yourself in a negative thought or situation, declare the exact opposite to be the case instead. The power to overwrite old programs in your subconscious and install an effective new mindset is within you, but you must set the intent. A lost-in-space feeling is possible as you tap into the un-you, new-you, or alter-you. Trying to identify who you really are isn't easy now because your mind is building new form and structure at a rapid rate and you are trying to catch up. Home improvement, self-improvement, and a peek into your hidden aspects through interactions with others is what your week is all about.

Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
If you need to make a stand or a presentation, Pisces, Monday and Tuesday are your best days of the week to make an assertive move and get what you want. A personal makeover, new wardrobe, or a new health regimen can give you the energy and confidence you need to be effective at work, especially if you are self-employed. The only difficulty present for most Pisces now involves friends, groups, or an organization that are non-supportive, outright obstructive, or no longer aligned with your own personal values. If it is money you seek from a bank or other traditional backer, you may find your request is considered too extreme or risky or your plans for the money don't meet with the lender's approval. You may have to find alternative means of raising cash and you have the creative skill to do this. The second pitfall to avoid is feeling too small or inexperienced to do so. Courage to try and faith in your ideas can make all the difference.
