Horoscope for the Week: August 20, 2021
Tip of the Week:
Leo time yields to Virgo just hours after the Moon waxes to Full, and for the second time in a row in Aquarius. While not an extremely rare event, it is somewhat and worthy of mention. This is especially true since this Aquarius Full Moon occurs at the critical 29th degree. Positively, this degree is recognized to share association with the higher spiritual alignment. As is the case with the glyph symbol of Aquarius, which is comprised of two wavy lines, principles of vibration and frequency are illustrated. As spiritually aware people recognize, higher vibrations refer to higher dimensions of existence.
As the sign most closely associated with holism, Virgo reveals the appreciation of the technical complexity of the fabric of existence. Whether defined as the engineering of the manifest universe or as metaphysics, both interpretations recognize the inherently intelligent design. Aquarius is also symbolic of illumination of consciousness, or enlightenment, which refers directly to this realization. Ironically, mainstream science asserts that existence is random, which ranks as the most illogical theory of nature ever conceived.
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
The sands are shifting and will continue to do so this week. Although much of your focus remains practical, some of it is being diverted to love and beauty. While not necessarily romantic, this could manifest as aesthetic and poetic appreciations. Meanwhile, circumstances are leading you to exercise your critical thinking abilities at a whole new level.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
A powerful creative impulse not only continues this week, but will be amplified as the Sun enters Virgo. This energy pattern is ideal for projects and activities requiring attention to detail, precision and making improvements in general. These may be directed towards outer activities yet may also be directed to the health and quality of your diet and lifestyle.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)
A busy and perhaps hectic cycle in your home and family life is underway. Positively, it includes an emphasis on creating beauty and harmony. Yet, achieving these will probably require extra efforts. The light of the moon will, symbolically at least, support you to pay closer attention to the details. Creative improvements sum it up.
Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)
The detailed, analytical and constructively critical attributes of Virgo are guiding you to conduct an inventory of what you have, want and need. The focus could be upon possessions yet may also be directed to new interests, or a new job or living situation or to achieving a new quality of freedom. Use this influence to gain clarity you can act upon.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)
Consolidating your overall foundation is underway. This focus will go to the next effective level this week and you will focus your energies and efforts much more fully yet. This has likely already and will continue to include important exchanges with others. These could prove revolutionary so you are wise to exercise a full measure of diplomacy.
Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)
The Sun entering your sign will add turbo fuel to your already ignited engines. You will push harder than usual, revealing strength and resolve. Somehow, keeping the best and leaving the rest is featured. Striking a balance between bigger picture interests and concerns and those of your more immediate circumstances will likely require extra effort.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
A strong activation of your subconscious mind may be exactly the inspiration you have been waiting for. With Venus in your sign, the desire to express yourself is extra strong. Hopefully, you will be able to harness and harmonize these impulses. Otherwise, you may simply enjoy a period of rest and retreat to reflect and contemplate.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
A strong activation of your sense of independence and individuality should be apparent by now. If it is not yet, it will be this week. This could manifest as creative resolve with emphasis on improvements and repairs. Yet, the energy pattern could also manifest as inventiveness. Combined, the ‘MacGyver’ in you will reveal its ingenuity.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
The opportunist in you has been activated. How this specifically manifests is subject to your heart and soul. For some it will manifest as seeking opportunities to invest, for others to go on an adventure, for yet another segment the emphasis will be towards service, while for others yet it could be the perfect heist. Whatever it is, the scout is on the lookout.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You are in a philosophical mood. Although your philosophies are usually strongly guided by practical interests and concerns, sometimes you leave room for idealism as well, like now. Seeing into, through and beyond common sense is leading you to what hopefully amounts to uncommonly good sense, which is evidently not very common.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)
Deep changes amounting to veritable transformations are underway. The beginning of a new quality of peace and harmony is steadily emerging as well, but you are not free and clear yet. You are probably wise not to expect that you will break free from this metamorphic cycle for perhaps upwards to several weeks. So, cooperate patiently, humbly and faithfully.
Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)
For a peace-loving dreamer, you sure can be a warrior at times. This is one of those times and will continue for some weeks yet. Success now depends on your ability to think critically and creatively. As well, your ability to accept and embrace change and transformation and, moreover, to take an active lead to realize it without injury to yourself and others is the mastery you are meant to realize now.
