Your horoscope for August 23 to 29, 2018

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Over the next couple of days, the sun, freshly powered up in Virgo, is on a creative roll with Uranus in Taurus and Saturn in Capricorn. Good connection, satisfaction, results, and reward are on the ready dial-up.

      Holding court over the weekend, the moon in Pisces reaches full early Sunday morning while most of us are sleeping. A night or two of dream activation is quite possible. Imagination is easily triggered. If you are spiritual, musical, artistic, romantic, or an inspirational speaker or leader, this one’s for you. Hopes, ideals, potentials, fantasies—the full moon can keep you swimming in the deep end of emotions or lost in a creative process.

      Sensitivity and susceptibility are also greatly heightened. If you drink or do drugs, please take extra safety precautions. Guard health, keep tabs on spending, and protect valuables.

      This full moon can keep us chasing the potential or the elusive. It can also be exposing in a myriad of ways. Sunday’s Venus/Pluto adds a compulsive edge to wants, needs, relationship interactions, sexual conquest, and shopping. Temptation or curiosity is hard to resist; an impulsive purchase or action can get the better of you. In a sweet-talk or savvy way, folks can attempt to sway or sell, to force their opinion or their agenda.

      Mars in Capricorn ends retrograde on Monday morning. Have the past two months stymied progress or effectiveness? That’s over now. Mars regains its Capricorn momentum to September 10. It’s foundation-setting and a time-crunch transit. Official undertakings and effort directed toward getting a better handle make for the best use of this event.

      March 20 - April 19

      If you haven’t been able to get yourself up to full steam quite yet, you will now. Thursday/Friday, get your social fill. Saturday, no matter what you get up to, it’s easy going. A full moon on Sunday could see you get lost in the moment, process, or emotion of it. Sunday to Wednesday are good for making headway regarding talks, projects, and plans.

      April 20 - May 20

      It’s time to get your act together. The sun in Virgo can help you to do just that. Before you start making good on your cleanup project, the full moon in Pisces sets up one more weekend for reprieve. Saturday dishes up the best and most relaxed stars of the weekend. Sunday/Monday can spark an idea or a conversation, or it can push a relationship button.

      May 21 - June 21

      Time is moving on and so should you. Whether it is a feeling or something more, Mars on a revisit of Capricorn puts more pressure on you to get a better handle on the priorities. To the plus, Virgo month and the end of Mars retrograde on Monday will put you on the upswing with organization, belt-tightening, and your must-do or should-do list.

      June 21 - July 22

      You have stuff to get at! Don’t waste a moment. Pick up the slack and get on track with what’s necessary right now. A little goes a long way this weekend. Saturday, you’re on a roll. Sunday/Monday prompt a breakthrough. Watch for an opportunity to talk it out, figure it out, come clean, rework it, or call in a favour.

      July 22 - August 22

      Despite a few more days before Mars finishes retrograde, you should find it all runs along a smooth and productive track through most of the weekend. There’s no need to race, push, or force a thing. Do what comes naturally and all is well. The second half of a full moon Sunday through Tuesday can trigger something extra or more.

      August 22 - September 22

      Your birthday month is off to a good start thanks to the sun being in excellent shape with Uranus and Saturn (by trine) through Saturday. Take full advantage of the weekend while the getting is good. Venus/Pluto infuse more juice into full-moon Sunday. You’ll gain even better mileage from Mars in Capricorn once it ends retrograde on Monday. Tuesday/Wednesday, don’t wait, take the initiative.

      September 22 - October 23

      Thursday/Friday are best for social activity. Ditch the work this weekend if you can, aim for rest, relaxation, ease, and healthy choices. Saturday, moderation comes naturally but Sunday, you can get swept up or overdo. The full moon can ignite a creative well-spring. Know that you are also more susceptible, vulnerable, or emotional. Monday, roll with it. Tuesday/Wednesday call for action.

      October 23 - November 21

      One thing after another keeps you going strong Friday. Saturday, take aim wherever you like, it’s as good as it gets. Come full-moon Sunday, cravings and compulsions are hard to resist; wants, needs, and emotions drive the show. To the plus, your ability to read between the lines is at a peak. Sunday to Tuesday, it’s unblocked, surpassed, released, or on a reboot.

      November 21 - December 21

      There are a few more days of Mars retrograde to go, but there’s no better time than right now to get your rear in gear. At peak by Saturday, a wonderful Earth grand trine sets an optimum backdrop for making the most of it. Sunday/Monday move you past a creative or emotional block, relationship impasse, or personal mindset. Tuesday/Wednesday, hit it fresh.

      December 21 - January 19

      The sun is in excellent shape with Saturn, your ruler, and Uranus through the weekend can see you do no wrong. Saturday, take a test drive with synchronicity; it’s a feels good/feels right/falls right into place type of day. From full-moon Sunday through Wednesday, watch for an opportunity to get something important cleared up or figured out.

      January 20 - February 18

      Friday’s moon in Aquarius keeps you going strong from start to finish. For the most part, the weekend ensures you’re on a reward track, too. Sunday/Monday, ease your way along, give in, indulge, and be subtle. Don’t read too much into it but pay close attention to what’s behind it. Monday to Wednesday, there’s stuff to get through/work through.

      February 18 - March 20

      The weekend is yours for the taking. Friday/Saturday, synchronicity works like a charm. Right place, right time, right words, right choice, it couldn’t go better. Full-moon Sunday keeps you completely immersed and going strong. Something compelling or irresistible can overtake you. Monday, ease your way along, don’t force it. Tuesday/Wednesday, the pace picks up.
