Your horoscopes for the week 22 August – 28 August, 2016
Aries – March 21 to April 20
Get set for a frustrating week. Saturn and Neptune both stymy your motivation and energy levels, so you’ll feel like a car trying to move forwards with the handbrake on! You’ll also become confused about a current issue as too many options cloud your judgement. Pace yourself Rams. With patience and perseverance, you’ll eventually get ahead. On the weekend, spend time in the great outdoors having fun with your partner, best mate or favourite four-legged friend.
Taurus – April 21 to May 21
Don’t dismiss financial matters. The devil is definitely in the detail, so make sure you research, revise and re-do. Your business partner or spouse will appreciate your due diligence. When it comes to a cherished dream, you may suddenly question your goals or mistrust your motives. That’s OK. Some confusion is likely before you can recalibrate your plans. Positive aspects promise a playful weekend, as you connect with children or have fun with your creative inner child.
Gemini – May 22 to June 21
The week starts well when you travel, enrol in a new course of study, book a holiday or experience a communication breakthrough with a family member. Mercury and Jupiter also expand your domestic horizons. So – over the next few months – you could buy real estate, move house, get a new housemate, or renovate your place to gain more living space. Don’t let a slap-dash approach trip you up though! You’ve got exciting plans but they’ll only work if you can get others onside.
Cancer – June 22 to July 23
Your daily routine won’t run smoothly this week. Expect annoying delays and frequent disruptions, as Neptune confuses communication and Saturn raises frustration levels to high. The best approach for cranky Crabs is to cool down and re-calibrate. And don’t worry if you are full of niggling self-doubts. The Universe is urging you to confront your fears, question your motives, and re-formulate your goals for the future. The more you interact with others, the better the weekend will be.
Leo – July 24 to August 23
The focus is firmly on money matters including cost cutting, fundraising and financial investments. If you can get the balance right between being canny with cash and entrepreneurial with your ideas, then you could really go places. But a relationship with a child, teenager, parent, lover or friend may temporarily go backwards as you place difficult or unrealistic expectations on them. Try to step back and view the current situation from a much wider perspective.
Virgo – August 24 to September 23
With Mercury, Venus and Jupiter linking up in your sign, it’s time to be the vibrant and vivacious Virgo you were born to be. Confidence and positive thinking are the rocket fuel that will take you places. But don’t just focus on facts, figures and the minutiae of daily life. Strive to expand your creative horizons as you do your best to make the world a more beautiful place. Be inspired by birthday great Mother Teresa “The world is hungry not only for food, but also for beauty.”
Libra – September 24 to October 23
With four planets moving through your self-sabotage zone [including your power planet Venus] are you your own worst enemy at the moment? Is the only person undermining your efforts actually you? Stop trying to please everyone else and instead, start focusing on what really matters for your future happiness and success. So your motto for the coming week is from birthday great Florence Welch “You should have high expectations for yourself, and others should come second.”
Scorpio – October 24 to November 22
Your peer group is set to expand as you become involved with a group, club or organisation involving like-minded souls. But Mars and Saturn stir up your financial zone so, if you are wasteful or extravagant, then you’ll pay the price further down the track. Neptune also confuses money matters, especially if your finances are linked with a friend or family member. The weekend is a wonderful time to party with pals, network like a pro, or boost your social media presence big time.
Sagittarius – November 23 to December 21
Sagittarius is the sign that rules horses. And this week Saturn tightens the reigns so – just when you want to charge full-steam ahead – you’ll promptly be pulled back into place. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, as it teaches you to walk before you can run. Then your ruling planet Jupiter joins up with vivacious Venus, so expect a wonderfully social weekend. But it’s also important to balance fun, flirting and frivolity with some special solo time, where you can relax and reboot.
Capricorn – December 22 to January 20
This week Saturn [your ruling planet] links up with mighty Mars, so you need to get the ratio right between being patient and being proactive; between showing restraint and taking action. A tricky balance! There’ll also be plenty of situations [and people] that ‘get your goat’ but trying to coerce or control others could lead to confusion, so step back and reassess the situation. And find appropriate ways to expel your frustrated energy via physical activity in the great outdoors.
Aquarius – January 21 to February 19
Aquarians usually have many adventurous dreams and avant-garde schemes. But make sure you also have the discipline and persistence to make those aspirations an actual reality. If you are involved in a group dynamic this week, then expect challenges and confusion as people have conflicting agendas and head off in totally different directions. At least life won’t be boring! Plus avoid talking about a property sale or joint financial transaction until it’s signed, sealed and delivered.
Pisces – February 20 to March 20
Teamwork and networking will get you where you want to go. Look for a special person you can collaborate with, on a project that’s close to your heart. Expect some hiccups and holdups along the way though! And be particularly careful what you ingest this week. With Mars squaring Neptune [on Friday] you’re sensitive constitution is more inclined to food allergies, medication mix-ups or adverse reactions to alcohol. So make sure you are sensible and pace yourself Pisces.
