Horoscope for the Week: August 13, 2021


Tip of the Week:

Summer season has officially peaked and we are now on the downward slide towards equinox. By now, the hours of daylight are noticeably shorter. This annual rhythmic pattern revealing the intimate relationship shared between Earth and Sun is much more significant psychologically and spiritually than is commonly realized. That the weather patterns are so chaotic, however, can be understood as a synchronicity of the human condition and the chaotic shift of energies linked to the dawning of the Age of Aquarius.

Jupiter and Saturn both currently retrograde in Aquarius are playing major roles in this epic tale of the shift of ages. Together they reveal the revolutionary impulse that is changing the social dynamic on a global scale. The many various players on the world stage, regardless of their apparent power and influence are invariably pawns moved by inner forces both within their own subconscious mind and linked to subtle dimensions behind the larger destiny rhythms. Experiences, lessons and tests are the common denominator and we each are accountable to the laws of karma, no exceptions.

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Mercury just joined Venus and Mars in Venus adding to the sobering tone of this time. Although the Sun remains in fun in the sun Leo, that sentiment is countered by Virgo’s lean towards work and critical analysis. Positively, it is inspiring you to focus on your health. Venus will enter Libra this week as well which will inspire your appreciation of beauty.

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)

The Virgo influence may prove dryer for some, but for you it represents fertile ground for creativity, fun, play and romance. Yet, this impulse must contend with the Aquarian influences which represent a much more serious and sober theme linked to your public and professional life. While expansion is indicated, it does require contraction and discipline.

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)

A busy time close to home combines with a social impulse activated by the Leo Sun. This could be the perfect excuse to do a deep clean of your home, as revealed by Mars in Virgo, in preparation for hosting a Leo-time inspired party. Meanwhile, thoughts about truth, freedom and justice may be flowing through your mind as you contemplate larger realities.

Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)

An impulse to take stock of what you have, what you want and desire and what you genuinely need is activating your thoughts. Deep changes are rumbling within and these are likely manifesting as outer experiences as well. Returns are indicated and a clear indication of these, stand to be realized this week. Cooperate with the flow of deep changes underway.

Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)

A pioneering spirit continues to guide your focus. Your sights are set on the future and you are determined to meet it prepared. At this point, you are keen to think and act with practical considerations in mind. Yet, you are determined to take as frugal an approach as you can. Thus, directing your critical analysis to what constitutes sound investments is likely.

Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)

Mercury, Venus and Mars in your sign are sure to be activating your focus on creating a brighter future. You are eager to advance, even if it requires a patient, stepping approach. Considerations of your overall lifestyle are featured. You are willing to adapt as necessary and may even find yourself feeling quite excited about the possibilities.

Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

A quest to more fully and clearly identify your sense of individuality continues. Implied in the process is the courage to ask harder questions. Being your own best friend all the while will help you to maintain a healthy balance. This will activate an inspired flow of creative inspiration that will begin this week making the effort worthy of your time and energy.

Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Getting the attention you want and feel you deserve, continues. Achieving it may require an added measure of critical thinking, or two. This includes agitating others and circumstances just enough to be seen, heard and heeded. This window will close for this cycle when the Sun enters Virgo August 22, so this is your cue if you still yearn for earned recognition.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Paying attention to the details of the bigger picture has emerged as a central theme again.  How wide your scope reaches is relative to youR nature and destiny. Either way, practical concerns and considerations are forefront on your mind. Despite a variety of distractions, you have arrived at a time when concentrating your focus is extra important.

Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Although usually guided by strongly practical objectives, you have entered a contemplative cycle. It comes as a feature of a period of inner change. Although perhaps only subtly, you are undergoing a change of values and priorities, as the new emerges to replace the old. Financial considerations going forward into an uncertain future is the main driver.

Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)

Engaging with others more than usual continues to hold appeal. However, you are also undergoing some deep inner changes that are consuming a lot of your energy and focus. These have included various extremes, both challenging and rewarding. These will alleviate steadily starting this week leading to a more harmonious period.

Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)

A cycle of drive and determination continues. It is leading you to pay closer attention to the details. Positively, your powers of critical analysis are running strongly. Negatively, you are dealing with worry-driven anxieties. A soul solution is required as with cultivating your spiritual center in order to manage the stress. Keep breathing, exercising gratitude and willingness to be proactive.
