Your horoscope for August 29 to September 4, 2013
Fill your leisure time in whatever way suits you best—the stars are in good shape for the long weekend. Entertainment, stimulation, satisfaction, good connection, bargains—look for it and it’s readily found. While the long weekend and coming week can be productive, know that some plans, projects, or contracts can’t be nailed down or finished off just yet. Stay loose or open-ended, go with the flow, and keep working on it.
Well timed for back-to-it season, Mars has recently advanced into Leo. When it comes to putting your best into it, this is a starting-at-the-top influence. Get into the routine now. Set a higher intention and go for it with all your heart. Through mid October, Mars is well fuelled with a mix of desire and deserve. Strip away anxiety or fear, and show up for yourself instead. Mars keeps motivation in ample supply. Conscious creation is the pathway to increasing your success ratio.
Also on a sign change, Ceres will tenant Virgo through the start of November. This is a corrective, seeding, and regenerative influence. To remind you of how formidable she is, Ceres was upgraded to a planetoid as Pluto was demoted. In mythology, Ceres held jurisdiction over the seasons and was the only goddess with enough power to negotiate with Zeus/Jupiter, the god on high. Through the first week of September, Ceres keeps the potential and uncertainty alive.
March 19 - April 19
Through the middle of October, Mars in Leo shines a brighter light into the heart of matters, which in turn helps you upgrade your success ratio. You’ll find you’re more able to get down to work and see it amount to something of substance. Wealth is found in the healthy side of any attitude, ambition, situation, or relationship.
April 19 - May 20
Virgo month provides your best create-it opportunity, especially so thanks to several supportive planetary alignments. Put that sense of can-do to work, and watch the good it does you. A confidence-building aspect between the sun and empowering Pluto suggests you’ll feel like you’re heading in the right direction. You are.
May 20 - June 20
The stars set a productive and smooth-running backdrop for your long weekend. As of Tuesday’s back-to-it routine, anything you do to spruce up is effort and resources well spent. You know what’s necessary and what’s worth aiming for. While today is better than tomorrow, allow yourself the next 10 days to get into full swing.
June 20 - July 22
Mars has just left Cancer, but you may find it does you even more good as the action planet makes its way through creative Leo. Through mid October, Mars will serve as a positive stimulant to your resources and moneymaking sector. Aim higher and stay confident. Friday to Sunday, the moon in Cancer sets you into a good social and personal flow.
July 22 - August 22
Putter around over the long weekend or enjoy a get-together with friends, but past the first weekend of September, plan to get cracking on the important stuff. Mars, freshly into Leo, launches a new two-year manifesting cycle. Turn “have to” into a creative test instead. The right attitude is a major key to the success of any ambition, struggle, or undertaking.
August 22 - September 22
A new-you planting season begins as Ceres, goddess of the grain, joins Mercury and the sun in Virgo. Through the start of November, Ceres will help you work your way through a ripe fresh start or productive reboot. On a deeper level, this new soul chapter helps you reclaim a part of yourself that has gone missing.
September 22 - October 22
Venus in Libra is already in your court, and now Mars in Leo boosts your prospects too. Both planets benefit career, finances, personal goal-setting, and your social life. Attention, admiration, and favour come to you more readily now—work things to your advantage. Friday through Sunday, family or duty may come first, but don’t forget to squeeze in something for yourself too.
October 22 - November 21
The long weekend is ideal for squeezing the last drop out of summer and end-of-season sales. Soak it in/up. You can ease along next week, but still get at it. Some tasks are a chore, but some are juicy prospects. Either way, it’s time to set a goal and go. Mars, freshly in Leo, boosts your ambition and your success ratio.
November 21 - December 21
Friday/Saturday, cozy up at home or with someone you love. Come Sunday/Monday, it’s time to get out and about. Getting things off to the right start, the recent sign advances of Ceres and Mars are revitalizing for career potential, creative projects, and getting your act together in general. Now through the middle of October, make the most of it.
December 21 - January 20
It’s a great weekend for just about anything you want to do. The sun’s trine to Pluto gives you a knack for putting your hands on it and making things work just right. Expect to continue along this positive track. In fact, something that has plagued you for a while should now move along just fine.
January 20 - February 18
While the last workday before the long weekend can sometimes be a write-off, it could be especially productive or lucrative for you. Sunday/Monday, aim for play. Back-to-it Tuesday can be a soft start, but there’s no time to waste when it comes to your financial get-ahead. Boost your professional or product visibility, and increase your social-media presence.
February 18 - March 19
Cozy up with a loved one or on your own: Friday/Saturday you’re on a feels-good roll. Sunday through Tuesday, accomplishment is easy and pleasing. Come Wednesday, it’s time to try a new routine or route. Through mid October, Mars in Leo will reward you for putting your best foot forward regarding work, school, and health matters.
