August 06, 2015


Aries March 21 – April 19 

You'll be in the mood to enjoy yourself. With a delightful blend of energies, it would be worth your while to make the most of any available opportunities. As Venus continues retrograde, a romantic notion could feel right but may not be smooth sailing for a while. Despite the fun, Mercury's move into Virgo suggests it's time to knuckle down and proceed with plans that have been on the back burner. Tweaking diet and health routines can also be rewarding. 


Taurus April 20 – May 20 

This week's blend of energies encourages you to get your house in order, literally and figuratively. Get busy with important DIY projects and handle any family disputes wisely. Entertaining could be a lot of fun, despite one or two obstacles to contend with. The focus then shifts to fun opportunities. There's no need to look far for excitement - you can find it in your neighborhood. Consider a new restaurant or other venue for a fun evening or day out 


Gemini May 21 – June 21 

Warm, tender feelings are enlivened this week, encouraging you to reach out to friends or family you haven't seen or heard from in a while. It's also an opportunity to meet with neighbors or support charity or other events in your locale. Although you could encounter a few delays, an optimistic outlook can make all the difference. On another note, Mercury's move into Virgo could see you planning ahead regarding a few changes you would like to make at home.


Cancer June 22 – July 22 

Finances get a boost this week, but not before you've had to scramble to tackle a few problems. Delays to money coming in or going out might cause frustration, but it's nothing you can't resolve. As Mars hikes into this sector of your chart from Saturday, you'll be motivated to explore new ways to earn extra cash and boost your income. Thoughts of taking up a course of study could leave you quite excited at the possibilities that lie ahead. 


Leo July 23 – August 22 

The week starts pleasantly, as friends and associates are likely to be in touch. Enjoy the company of a special partner or love interest - the opportunities for romance are yours for the taking. Venus continues retrograde, so try not to have too many expectations about the future. It's best to go with the flow for now if possible. Although responsibilities at home could stand in the way of personal fulfillment, you'll be firing on all cylinders by the weekend.



Virgo August 23 – September 22 

The focus on your spiritual sector could encourage you to go on a short retreat to relax and recharge. If you can spare an hour or two for a massage or beauty treatment, you could find it very soothing and healing. It's time for you to be pampered and nurtured with a little tender, loving care. Mercury heads into your sign on Friday, enhancing your communication skills and encouraging you to get involved in projects that are personally fulfilling. 


Libra September 23 – October 22 

Friends are in touch and want to have fun. Romantic opportunities abound, but it's best to go with the flow rather than make any firm commitments. The more willing you can be to network and interact, the more options you'll have to take life to new, exciting levels. Mars zips into Leo on August 8, so you could be in the mood to organize events. You may even be slightly competitive when it comes to a love interest or impressing others. 


Scorpio October 23 – November 21 

Even if you're uncertain about being in the spotlight, you can make great strides by taking advantage of this opportunity. Don't refrain from advertising your goods and services - you'll benefit greatly by doing so. Meanwhile, avoid being too pushy, as this could work against you. Your social life picks up later in the week, encouraging you to get in touch with friends you haven't seen in a while. Joining a health or sports club could be very rewarding. 


Sagittarius November 22 – December 21 

Travel and educational pursuits could hold a lot of appeal, particularly if you're itching to expand your horizons. It's a good time to let your curiosity lead you to new and exciting adventures. You may have a few doubts to contend with, too, causing you to hold back when in your heart you know it's time to move out of your comfort zone. The words of a wise friend might be helpful here, inspiring you to try despite your fears. 


Capricorn December 22 – January 19 

Work and finances may be on your mind, as well as progress. However, if you listen to friends or supposed experts, you may wonder if you're doing the right thing. It's best to go with your gut and follow through. Things could work out even better than expected. Go easy if you're playing with really large amounts of money, as retrograde Venus can cause unanticipated delays and reversals. Keep paperwork and receipts in case you need them further down the line. 


Aquarius January 20 – February 18 

Partnerships and relationships could keep you busy. There are plenty of options for an upbeat social life, although it helps to tread with care when it comes to romance. As Venus continues retrograde, this isn't the best time to make big decisions or commit. Try to go with the flow for now. As Mercury heads into Virgo, it's time to plan for your financial future. If you've experienced a few delays recently, a sound strategy could be just what you need 


Pisces February 19 – March 20

Work and lifestyle issues continue to keep you busy this week, particularly if you've recently taken up a new sport or decided to get fit and lose a few pounds. It helps to persevere, even though you might find this difficult in the weeks ahead. If you get off to a good start, you'll be likelier to reach your goals. Mercury's presence in Virgo can encourage a connection with someone who has some good advice for you.
