Your horoscope for August 15 to 21, 2019

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      A full moon in Aquarius always holds an extra punch. Thursday’s full moon is no exception to the rule. Expect the unexpected. It could be a wild ride. In opposition to Venus and Mars in Leo, this full moon could see the markets, politics, relationships, and weather hit a breaking-point or turning-point peak. If it is already on high stress, expect it to go snap. If you are already on your way to a divorce, this full moon could speed up the process. Aquarius is a liberation and emancipation archetype.

      On the other hand, this full moon can be full of excellent opportunity. It can fast-track personal or lifestyle reinvention. It can produce something unexpected, special, exceptional, or exhilarating. Destiny in the making—someone special or someone new could burst onto the scene. Mercury in Leo square Uranus on Friday also lights a fresh spark. An air-clearing, self-discovery process, creative solution, or first date could lead you someplace good.

      Late Saturday, Mars leaves Leo for Virgo. On Wednesday, Venus will do the same. Along with the sun’s entrance into Virgo next Friday, we’ll feel the pull toward getting organized for back-to-work and back-to-school season. That is not to say the stars aim to shortchange us! Wednesday/Thursday, the Taurus moon wants to savour the moment. Mercury’s trine to Jupiter on Wednesday wants to make the most of the gifts of the season. Travel, shopping, and social or pleasure pursuits are top of the checklist. Also a look-ahead, get-ahead, future-bound transit, Mercury/Jupiter puts more of everything on the upswing.

      March 20 - April 20

      What a difference a day/a singular moment can make! It’s breakthrough time! Thursday’s full moon can coincide with the launch of something truly exceptional. It could springboard you into a new love, career trajectory, or lifestyle overhaul. Luck, serendipity, and creative opportunity run especially high. Mercury keeps the action on percolate through mid–next week. Sunday onward sets you onto a productive track.

      April 20 - May 21

      The defining moment has arrived! Whether long in the works or suddenly sprung on you, Thursday’s full moon jettisons you into a significant next chapter, this regarding career, home base, a relationship status, or a new living-with-yourself reality.
