Your horoscope for August 9 to 15, 2012
Something has got to give way—and it will. Venus, Uranus/Pluto, and Mars/Saturn are building toward a snap and release through mid next week.
Mercury retrograde has just ended but an alignment with Neptune will keep the guesswork, uncertainty, and unravelling going for a few more days. Proceed, but employ extra diligence through the weekend.
Venus, newly in Cancer, heightens the need and the emotional climate, especially when things hit too close to home. Over the next week, Venus in Cancer will increase the urgency on matters to do with housekeeping, safeguards, defence, protectionism, conservation, preservation, and grooming at all levels—personal, private, public, and political.
On Wednesday, Venus is in dynamic aspect first to Pluto and then to Uranus. Expect added market volatility, political push-comes-to-shove, new waves, and a sharp corner turned.
Also on Wednesday, Mars in Libra comes full circle with Saturn. The push for personal rights, justice, accountability, and a better equilibrium intensifies. Something significant ends; something more begins. Regarding private life and the world’s journey as well, Venus/Pluto and Mars/Saturn now compel us across a no-turning-back threshold. Both of these aspects can signal a constructive forward thrust, or they can unleash with a vengeance. The future is a more lucrative mint, and it will buy more than the spent past can deliver. Last but not least of Wednesday’s planetary alignments, look to Venus/Uranus to dish up the sudden and new.
March 19 - April 19
A family circumstance, a relationship impasse, or a legal or financial matter has been dragging on for some time now. As of mid next week, a major blank fills in, and once it does you’ll move on to a much faster go. Watch for news, an important conversation, or an official communiqué to set new wheels in motion. Sign the contract, make the commitment.
April 19 - May 20
For the past two-ish years, you have been getting your fill of hands-on training in the school of life and love. All this time, you’ve been swimming in the deep end of the pool. Tuesday/Wednesday marks a definitive breakthrough or break-free regarding a work, health, legal, or relationship situation. The stars now position you at a fresh starting gate. Everything fast-tracks from here.
May 20 - June 20
Whether a joyous occasion, a monumental battle hard-won, or a combination of both, congratulations are in order. You have wagered and gained, perhaps more than you fully appreciate right now. Regarding the heart-and-soul journey, an inheritance, a legacy, a career, a personal, or a financial milestone, mid next week marks a fulfillment-and-reward threshold. It’s an auspicious time to launch a new initiative.
June 20 - July 22
It’s on stew or brew now and building plenty of steam. By mid next week, a dilemma, conflict, necessity, or circumstance will reach a climactic breaking point. From here, you’ll move past the point of no return and into your brand-new reality. The future holds great promise, and it’s already racing ahead. Log on and commit your all.
July 22 - August 22
You are progressively gaining a better fix on yourself. At the same time, you’re getting better clued-in to what the immediate and long-range future offers. Mid next week brings you to a significant, official, and/or liberating finish line. From this point, the guesswork diminishes while clarity and confirmation sharpen. A fresh opportunity cycle begins.
August 22 - September 22
While doubt and uncertainty can linger yet, next week’s stars aim to make your choices crystal clear. For now, stay alert and watch for circumstances to set the stage for you. Once the line is crossed, an agreement is reached, or a contract is signed, it’ll be time to forget yesterday’s marathon and to actively invest your all in this gifted fresh start.
September 22 - October 22
From the middle of May to the end of July, a consciousness, plan, or life direction has been crystallizing into a ripe-and-ready stage. It’s been a matter of aligning several components into one. As of mid next week, Mars conjunct Saturn drops the last piece into place. From here, there should prove to be an easier and faster progression.
October 22 - November 21
When it comes to loved ones, there’s only so much you can do for them and only so much you can control. The same goes for your own personal expectations. What counts the most is for you to know your heart. Mid next week places you at the end or the start of a vacation, job, or project. Your new adventure holds great promise.
November 21 - December 21
Savour the moment—the journey is just as amazing as the destination. By mid next week, you’ll be on to something new and today will already be a thing of the past. It’s a time of significant goodbyes, hellos, and threshold crossings. Keep on the lookout for your next best thing. You’ll know it by that undeniable fits-like-a-glove feel.
December 21 - January 20
Things can’t keep dragging on in the same way, nor do you want them to. Mid next week’s pressure-and-release stars bring a relationship, financial, or career conflict to a decisive head. Try not to let raw emotions wear you down. Once you are over the hump, the liberation will feel exhilarating. Dump the pain, love the gain.
January 20 - February 18
So much is coming together for you. Over the next week, your future will crystallize in no uncertain terms. The significance of your actions, words, choices, contracts, undertakings, or tests can be daunting, but you have never been more ready and the time is especially ripe. This is not a trial run; it’s your life.
February 18 - March 19
Over the next week, you’ll cross the threshold from living with the potential to living with the reality. You may have waited a long time for this moment to arrive, but now that it has come, you’ll quickly acclimatize to the fast-track trajectory. Legal, financial, or karmic in nature, a binding contract cements the long-term. Life and life’s challenges get easier from here. Work and health are on the upswing now.
