Your horoscopes for the week 10 August – 16 August, 2020
Aries – March 21 to April 20
Aries folk need to have an ambitious project to channel their fiery energy into. (As original celebrity chef – and birthday great – Julia Child declared “Find something you’re passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it.”) This week you’ll be given the opportunity to lead, influence or help those around you so don’t waste it. But there is the potential for explosive Mars-Pluto power struggles with an authority figure, work colleague or parent (especially on Thursday).
Taurus – April 21 to May 21
This week’s tempestuous stars highlight your occasional inclination to jealous or overbearing Bullish behaviour. It’s time to loosen your possessive grip on a loved one, otherwise you’ll just drive them away with your demanding and stubborn demeanour. You’re also in the mood to text and tweet and communicate but are you posting confusing mixed messages? And are others happy to hear what you’ve got to say? Strive to be much more precise, diplomatic and discriminating.
Gemini – May 22 to June 21
This week a relationship with your sweetheart, business partner or member of your peer group could be frustrating and confusing (or just completely unpredictable). The best way to handle the situation is with plenty of patience and understanding. On the weekend, the Sun and Mars encourage you to contribute your versatile Gemini talents to a worthy cause within your local neighbourhood. If you do, then satisfying community connections and positive friendships will follow.
Cancer – June 22 to July 23
If you’ve been burying your head in the sand, then a problem could come to a head and demand to be addressed. The planets encourage you to be direct about dealing with challenges, especially involving work and finances. Definitely no side-stepping allowed! Do your best to avoid being a snappy Crab on Thursday, when the Moon and Pluto magnify your mood swings and heighten your emotional sensitivity. The more defensive you are, the more difficult relationships will be.
Leo – July 24 to August 23
This week the Sun and Mercury are moving through your sign, plus the Sun connects with fiery Mars. So it’s time to tap into the very essence of what makes you the feisty, creative, dramatic Diva that you are. Don’t let relationship rumbles, work worries or financial fiascos diminish your flamboyant style. Be inspired by Leo model and actress Cara Delevingne (who was born on August 12, 1992). “Be brave. Believe in yourself. Make yourself proud.” Spoken like a true Lion!
Virgo – August 24 to September 23
Mercury (your patron planet) is moving through your isolation zone. So – whether or not you’re in Covid lockdown or quarantine – slow down and reflect on where you’re going, and where you’ve been. When it comes to a much-needed future holiday, be patient and plan carefully. It’s also a time when unresolved relationship issues could be dredged up all over again. The Sun and Mars encourage you to be proactive about healing the past and heading towards a brighter future.
Libra – September 24 to October 23
Has your perfectionist streak got out of control? The more you try to make everything ‘perfect’ this week, the more you will attract opposition from others. So focus on the evolving journey, rather than the final destination. The weekend looks wonderful, when the Sun and Mars encourage you to make a wish list of your goals for the future. Be inspired by birthday great Madonna “I stand for freedom of expression, doing what you believe in, and going after your dreams.”
Scorpio – October 24 to November 22
Mighty Mars squares powerful Pluto (your ruler) on Thursday, which boosts your stubborn streak and your control-freak tendencies. You’ll find the more temperamental you are, the more challenging the week will be. So simmer down Scorpio! On the weekend, the Sun and Mars encourage you to reach out and help someone at work or a friend in need. The close connections you foster within your professional peer group will prove beneficial in the long-term.
Sagittarius – November 23 to December 21
Expect financial problems or communication chaos (especially with work colleagues, clients or customers). Sagittarians are free spirits so you could also feel frustrated by local lockdown rules and/or travel restrictions. Don’t let it stop you from being adventurous and taking on challenges in creative and Covid appropriate ways. Draw inspiration from birthday great Madonna “If I can’t be daring in my work or the way I live my life, then I don’t really see the point of being on this planet.”
Capricorn – December 22 to January 20
Your ruler Saturn (planet of limitations and patience) is transiting through your sign until December. So it’s time for active and ambitious Capricorns to pace yourself, as some plans backfire and confidence levels are lower than usual. You could also question your current trajectory and look to others for feedback and approval. Don’t overdo it though! As birthday great Madonna observes “If your joy is derived from what others think of you, then you’re going to be disappointed.”
Aquarius – January 21 to February 19
This week’s planetary patterns amp up your Aquarian need for freedom, independence and avant-garde adventures. But don’t feel you have to tackle a current project or problem on your own. The Sun and Mercury are visiting your relationship zone, so there are plenty of people around who are happy to help. All you have to do is sum up the courage to ask. But too much reckless haste could lead to an argument or accident, so slow down and pace yourself (especially on Monday).
Pisces – February 20 to March 20
Expect some dramas this week, as Mars and Pluto stir up old grievances involving values, finances, possessions and/or friends. By all means use your diplomatic talents to help find solutions but, if you sit back and let others make decisions, then you’ll just feel paralysed and powerless. So strive to be much more proactive and self-sufficient, especially involving work. The weekend is a wonderful time to get physical in the great outdoors as you walk, run, bike or go on a nature hike.
