August 19 – August 26, 2017

ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 20)
As long as the Sun is in Leo, which is for another few days, you are on an easy ride. As soon as it goes into Virgo, on Wednesday, the mood changes. At this point you will have to actually produce something. Advertising your passion is one thing; coming up with the goods is another.

TAURUS (Apr 21 – May 20)
In order to get your feet on the ground, a little aloneness is required. This is to give you space to identify your essential needs and direction. However, with Venus in Cancer, letting go of attachments is the last thing you’d like to entertain right now. Talk gently to your inner child.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 21)
Mercury is in pragmatic Virgo. You are also rapidly closing in on a position of responsibility. Rather than fracture into a cacophony of disparate alternating voices, it is important that you find a place of wholeness. Use your logic and your intuition in equal measures. Think and feel.

CANCER (June 22 – July 22)
Venus and the Moon are both in Cancer at the beginning of the week. The two most feminine of the planets are paying you a visit, to soften you up. To pretend that you are hard-nosed and anti-dependent simply isn’t going to cut the ice. You are going to have to come out of your castle.

LEO (July 23 – Aug 22)
The Sun is with you until Wednesday. If there’s anything you need to get done urgently, now’s the time to do it. After Wednesday it will be a little trickier. You will have a horde of bean-counters on your case, slowing you down and bumping your creativity off track. Watch for reactivity.

VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22
The Sun will have arrived in Virgo by Thursday. This should give you the momentum you need to apply your methodology to the problems at hand. Mars will still be in Leo, so there may be a few flare-ups before the road ahead becomes easily navigable. These are testing times. Be flexible.

LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 23)
The desire to be expansive has the ironic effect of bringing all those forces that would like to remain contracted, to the surface. The more you show your colours, the more oppositional ideas jump up and down indignantly. Stay passionate and playful. Your day will most surely come.

SCORPIO (Oct 24 – Nov 21)
Keep it simple. Focus on the intrinsic order of your nature and it will show you the way. This of course implies taking the time to sit and listen. Solitude is precious. It is your ground. Creative options will arise from that still place within, which mirrors Mother Nature. Take it slowly.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
If you keep dancing and stay playful, you’ll find others taking your hand and dancing with you. If you sit still and become mired in emotion, you will stagnate and have to eventually shake yourself out of it. You might have to put in an effort initially, perhaps even fake it. Soon you will fly.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Venus and the Moon are opposing you with their sultry femininity. If you board up your windows and try to block them out, you will invite chaos. The only way to experience wholeness, is to enter the embrace. Turn towards, and welcome in those energies that you think will distract you.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Everything that you have learned and that you have experienced, lies within you as a resource. Whatever you put your hand to will be coloured by these things. The more you live, the richer your expression. Uranus is still kicking change along in Aries. Instigate, before it’s time to settle.

PISCES (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
You are being held to account by Mercury as he travels through Virgo. You are being asked to explain and justify your ‘self’, your moves, your thoughts and your feelings. Though it feels like being under a microscope, there is a positive. Your personal perspective is getting stronger and clearer.
