ASTROLOGY: August 18 – August 25, 2018

ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 20)
Mars appears to be going backwards in Capricorn. It would be a good idea to rethink practical matters. There’s a very good chance that you will have to take a fresh tack. Don’t take too much heed of your wounded pride, even though it might sting a bit. You will nail it in the end.

TAURUS (Apr 21 – May 20)
You have charged head-long into a china shop. It’s time to review the damage. Uranus possessed you with an impulse and now he is retrograde, giving you a chance to catch your breath and reappraise the situation. Your actions need to carry all the significance you wish to express.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 21)
These are powerful times for you. Life is asking you to step up. There’s no satisfaction whatsoever to be had lolling around in your comfort zone. Mercury’s passage through Leo should by rights be giving you courage. It is definitely not enough to simply put on a colourful show. Mean it.

CANCER (June 22 – July 22)
The rising Moon passes in front of Jupiter in Scorpio, to shift the week into gear. To say this is an intense start to the week would be an understatement. When the Moon passes through Scorpio, all our cravings for transformation and breakthrough surface. Factor in a directional shift.

LEO (July 23 – Aug 22)
The Sun is passing through the final few degrees of Leo. If there’s anything you haven’t done in the last weeks that needs doing, there’s every chance you will be possessed by the impulse to do it, quickly! There’s likely to be more energy than finesse involved, should you be so possessed.

VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22)
You are laying low awaiting your time. Others are busy with the limelight, possibly upping the ante and making all sorts of scenes in an effort to make their point. You know full well that all things must pass. The froth and the fury will soon dissipate, allowing you to be sensible.

LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 23)
Venus is soothing your restless heart. These have been busy times. The Sun in Leo is offering you a sparkling sense of harmony and possibility. Practical realities will come back to you soon enough. For now, identify and appreciate this little break in life’s traffic. The future is full of light.

SCORPIO (Oct 24 – Nov 21)
The Moon lights up the early part of the week with her fleeting presence in your sign. Though her visit is brief, the current of feeling she ignites is strong. It’s because she’s in cahoots with Jupiter. Use her soft, clear light to help yourself to break out of a tangle you’ve been in for way too long.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
As your inner, emotional life is so full, at the moment, it is entirely appropriate that you incarnate yourself as a home-body. Sagittarians are prone to doing the occasional spectacular directional pivots. You may well be in such a transition right now. Truth makes you alter your movements.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You are host to three truly heavyweight planets – Pluto, Saturn and Mars. They are all retrograde; appearing to go backwards. You have barrel-loads of energy, yet are being reflective with it. Others might think you are holding out. You’re not. You are rightfully considering your next move.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
The focus is half on relationship and half on work. With a bit of luck, one is feeding the other. The Leo Sun is reminding you that when your heart ignites and catches fire, then there is no disharmony, no fragmentation. Fragmentation is what the mind does. It breaks things down. Don’t go there.

PISCES (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
This is a reflective time. Neptune is retrograde. It’s turning-in time. Get cosy. Find someone else who’s in the same mood. Cosy up there. Relax. Rest. Dream. If anyone calls you lazy, remind them that no lazy person has hurt anybody. It’s the type ‘A’ personalities that cause all the mayhem.
