September 1st through 7th Weekly Horoscopes

All Signs

We are in the throes of one big influence with the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars all in the sign of Virgo. This is why you might be thinking about what you eat in the hopes of becoming healthier. This doesn’t mean you will necessarily change your behaviour, but you’ll feel guiltier. (Hey, everything begins with a good intention. Sometimes you have to keep telling yourself something for years before you cave-in and do what is right.) Meanwhile, standup comedians are trending because Virgos are such great mimics! And of course, laughter is the best medicine (well, penicillin is hard to beat). But one thing is certain: The worst time to have a heart attack is while playing a game of charades.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Two curious and conflicting influences impact your health and your job this week. In one way, you are being sensible and practical. (Bravo!) You’re making solid plans and achieving a lot in terms of production and results. Not only are you impressed, but bosses and VIPs are impressed as well. However, your practical, sensible urges might go out the window when you suddenly go overboard doing something. You might overestimate deadlines, plans or you might buy something because you want to go big. Playing this long shot might pay off – but it might not. It’s like staying on a diet all week and then blowing it Saturday night with margaritas and cheesecake. (Busted!)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

All this activity taking place in Virgo is excellent for your sign because you are an Earth Sign and so is Virgo. This means that currently, the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars are all supporting your energy – in different ways. But it’s good. In particular, this energy makes you want to party and have fun! It boosts your chances to make headway and explore avenues in the hospitality industry, the entertainment world and working with children. Your creative vibes are hot! Admittedly, this same influence can get you in trouble by going overboard in the same areas – especially partying too much. Don’t be excessive. Watch your spending. And remember: Friends don’t let friends drive naked.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This strong influence on home, family and your private life continues. Many are involved with a parent more than usual. You might be into redecorating and DIY projects because you are doing repairs and improvements at home. Meanwhile, visiting guests, renovations or residential moves might account for the increased activity and chaos on the home front, which unfortunately can promote tension and conflict.(Make nice with others.) On the upside, you have the support you need to do what you want to do. This is super. But your distraction will be socializing with friends and partners. “Hey, it’s only noon but look what I did! Time to relax and have fun!”

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Your busy, frantic pace continues; however, you’re getting so much done! This is the perfect time to take short trips, run errands, make appointments, visit with siblings, relatives and neighbours plus get involved reading, writing and studying more than usual. And this is not just “making yourself busy.” Oh no! You are getting a lot done in practical terms and this makes you feel great. The only downside is you might overestimate something – perhaps your ability, your stamina or how much you can get done – and this could create problems. Nevertheless, your optimism and enthusiasm will save the world before bedtime.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This strong influence of four planets in Virgo focuses your attention on your finances, your cash flow, your earnings and most definitely – how you spend money. That’s because these planets are all sitting in your Money House! On the upside, they are dancing nicely with stern Saturn, which promotes practical spending and a desire to work hard and be efficient in how you earn your money. But there is a contrasting influence taking place as well, which is a square with Jupiter, which encourages indulgence, impulse spending, surfing on line and clicking on Free Delivery items on Amazon. (What a seduction! Free Delivery!) And have you noticed all the sales are up “tomorrow?” How did they know?

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

It’s your turn to swagger because the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars are all in your sign. You’ve got your VIP Pass and you own Boardwalk and Park Place. Furthermore, because Saturn is dancing nicely with your sign, you’re more than just a pretty face. You are patient and willing to do difficult and exacting work. You are reliable in your relationships right now and not making unrealistic demands on others. You’re keen to get organized personally and in your environment, plus you’re ready to concentrate on mental work that requires attention to detail. Right now you’re getting to know yourself through your relationships with the world around you, in part because you have the discipline and self-control to make this happen. (I’m so impressed.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This week there is energy percolating below the surface for your sign because four planets are hiding in your chart. This means you’re happy to take a backseat and enjoy your privacy. Of course, comfort is important- you don’t mind being low key as long as you have good food and drink and a comfy, overstuffed chair reupholstered in tasteful velvet. Ironically, despite this opportunity to enjoy life quietly, you are very optimistic! You’re entertaining big ideas and planning short trips and long trips because you do want to expand your world. The biggest thing on your plate right now is securing your home environment for yourself and your family. But aside from that – you want to enjoy the good life with laughter, scintillating conversation and a nice Pinot Noir.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This week, it’s great that everyone wants to see your face because if you cooperate with others, and work with groups and friends – you will benefit! This is the perfect time to think about your goals and share your hopes for the future with someone to get their feedback. You might want to discuss travel plans because you do want to go places. You also want to explore foreign cultures, the law and philosophy. It’s easy to feel friendly to everyone because they are loving and affectionate to you. That’s why this is a fabulous week to socialize! This week also benefits love relationships. Because you identify now with your basic ego energies – set some goals. Enjoy physical activity with friends.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

A gaggle of planets at the top of your chart makes you look fabulous in the eyes of bosses, parents, VIPs — and the police. “Step away from the fridge.” What is particularly beneficial is stern Saturn is supporting this energy (at the top of your chart), and this makes you look conscientious, reliable, honest and hard-working, especially to important people. Of course, you’re doing something to encourage this great press? Naturally this means you have an advantage if you need to impress someone. One thing to be aware of is a tendency to exaggerate or overdo or overestimate something. (This is your Achilles’ heel.) Stay real. Nowadays honesty is novel and disarming.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

I once heard a wise teacher say the definition of negativity is “Wanting things to be different than the way they are.” However, I don’t think you are in a negative space because you want to escape somewhere! This is because a strong astrological influence now urges you to travel and explore new places and meet new faces. Or perhaps just be a tourist in your own city. You might study and learn something new to satisfy your urge to expand your mind and the world around you. This week Saturn will help you do this in a practical, doable way. You will see opportunities to do what you want to do. The only caveat is, be careful about being too ambitious or biting off more than you can chew.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This continues to be a passionate, intense time for you. In part, this is because you are focused on important money and property issues – inheritances, estates, wills plus anything to do with shared property or insurance disputes. This stuff can affect your wealth and your well-being. Fortunately, Saturn is now lending you the energy to tackle these matters with focus, discipline and a sense of responsibility. You won’t overlook details because you will pay attention to minor things. Perfect! You won’t be caught napping! Admittedly, you might be tempted to give away the farm to a friend or a group. (Think twice.) On the upside, you will be sexually passionate and ready for fun.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Four planets sit opposite from you, which is a signal that you’re bringing certain matters to a climax and as you do, you have to keep an eye on people in authority who might oppose you. You can learn a lot because events taking place around you tend to make your own life stand out in relief against your surroundings and other people. This makes you self-aware and conscious of the structures that you’ve built. Avoid conflict with others. This week Saturn will help you to work well with others, especially groups because they respect your input and they like your style. Even bosses and VIPs appreciate you. (Not too shabby.)

August 25th through 31st Weekly Horoscopes

Weekly Horoscope
Sunday, August 25, 2019

 

All Signs

This is the time of Virgo. (Don’t leave home without your Vitamin B complex. If that’s too complex, try B simple. B simple works for me. Someone stop me before I start on Vitamin C.) In the next four weeks, this Virgo influence will trigger an increased focus on wellness, health and nutrition. Note: Virgo rules wellness whereas Scorpio rules medicine. This is why Virgos haunt health food stores and Scorpios work in hospitals (or the cop shop). How appropriate that Friday’s New Moon is in Virgo making this the best chance all year to make resolutions about how to stay healthy. Take care of your body. It may be a temple or a sagging carport but it’s the only place you have to live.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Your focus for the next several weeks is on how to best function in the world, especially your job. Are you doing your job well? Do you work efficiently? Do you worry about wasting too much time? We each have 24 hours in a day – rich or poor – so how we use that 24 hours is virtually – how we are creating our life. After all time is the stuff life is made of. So you never have any “more time”. You never really “waste your time”. It comes down to how you choose to use your time. And this is the perfect time of year to think about this! It’s also the perfect time of year to work hard and get stuff done. Fortunately, coworkers are cooperative.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You love beautiful things; and because you are tactile and sensuous you explore hobbies and creative activities that please the senses – taste, touch, visual and auditory. (Many of you sing and love music.) For the next four weeks, a handful of planets urge you to set your own priorities and please yourself. What do you do for amusement and recreation? How do you express your creative talents? How do you explore romance and passionate relationships? What’s a fun vacation? Do you appreciate the children in your life? These are your questions. (There will be a midterm next Thursday.)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

For the next four weeks, there’s a handful of planets in the part of your chart that represents your intimate personal life, family and parents. Naturally, you will relate to your external world, but your main focus will be on home and family relationships. Something might make you better appreciate your home and your family? You might also see the value of warm bonds with family members. You realize how important it is to have your own personal refuge, a place to be by yourself. Memories of your childhood bubble up in your mind. (“Mom liked me best.”)

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You will become more aware of how you communicate with others in the next four weeks. You might see how people don’t hear you. And you might also see how you miss hearing others. (Studies show that in the best communications about 40% is getting back and forth.) No wonder everyone is at odds with each other. The pace of your days will accelerate as you focus on a stronger need to communicate and get out in the world. Short trips, conversations with others plus reading and studying will fill your days. Use this time to tell someone how you feel about something. Will they hear you?

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

A gaggle of planets is clustered in your Money House for the next four weeks. This makes you reflect upon the things you value. You will examine your relationship to your belongings. “Do I need this?” You might want to show off what you own. You will look at your physical world and take stock. In doing so, you might wonder what really matters in life? (Time matters. You’re born then you die and in between — that span of time is your life.) Meanwhile, you will work hard to earn money and you’ll spend big! Venus will help you buy beautiful things for yourself and others. (You’re a generous person.)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Once a year, the Sun is in your sign for four weeks, often accompanied by Mercury. But this year, Venus and Mars join the party giving you a magnificent booster shot of energy and drive. Venus increases your desire to relate to others; and as an added bonus, it makes you charming and diplomatic. It will also attract people to you – along with the Sun. By contrast, Mars makes you a fighter for your own rights and makes you eager to work hard. This is your chance to show the world what you can do! But nothing is as powerful as the Sun, which allows you to project yourself with more forcefulness than usual. People will respect you and listen when you speak. “More porridge?”

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

During the next four weeks, a handful of planets are hiding in your chart. When the Sun does this, it indicates that your year is ending and now is the time to plan for your new year ahead. (This hidden aspect reveals childhood behaviour patterns that might longer be appropriate.) It’s a time for reflection and self scrutiny. Venus is also hiding, which can mean secret love affairs. It also means you’re inclined to self-denial, especially in love relationships. (Don’t be a martyr.) Venus encourages you to explore charity work. Meanwhile, Mars doesn’t like to hide. Grrrr. Mars is brash, bold energy and this is why you might feel vaguely irritable and uneasy for the next few weeks. Like you’re all dressed up with no place to go. (No boxed wine.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

For the next four weeks, a handful of planets are in your House of Friendships. This is why you will do your best work cooperating with others and being involved in groups. Knowing this – be friendly! Engage in groups. Join classes or a club. However, make time to scrutinize your friends and the groups to which you belong. Ask yourself, “Are these my people?” When you’re young, you have to play with the kid next door. But as an adult, you have a choice. Enjoy socializing with others but study the people you associate with because they are reflection of yourself. Scary but true. Expect to hang out with artistic, creative younger people this month.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Once a year, the Sun is at the top of your chart for four weeks making you look stellar! This year there are four planets at the top of your chart. The Sun makes you great to bosses, parents, VIPs and the police. (Naturally, you can use this to your advantage.) Venus will attract people to you who will help you promote your professional life and make things run more smoothly. Venus might also thrust you into giving artistic, creative advice. It also promotes romance with a boss. Mars of course, arouses your ambition and makes you aggressive and keen to achieve. Contrary to Venus, Mars might encourage problems with coworkers. Hey, relax. You can juggle these different energies because you are so likeable.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You’re going to want to do whatever is within your power to expand your experience of life in the next four weeks. The most obvious way to approach this is to travel and see more! But you will also find it rewarding to study and learn something new because it expands your mind. The Sun and Venus will guarantee that you will travel for pleasure; and Mercury will guarantee that you study and learn something. Mars, however, might make you identify with political, religious and racial beliefs. You might want to defend ideas that you haven’t even examined. Don’t coerce others into agreeing with you. Ted Turner’s motto was, “Early to bed, early to rise, work like hell and advertise!”

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

The issues that are occurring in your life during the next four weeks will not be casual. Au contraire! They will be intense and passionate! Basically, this is because you have a strong desire to experience life on a feeling level – not just intellectual. You feel alive and you’re aware of your own mortality. This is why you might have concerns about finances and financial security. Venus will attract money and favours to you. In fact, the next several weeks are a great time to ask for a loan or mortgage. Venus will also promote affectionate, physical romance while Mars amps your sex drive! Hot combo! All this passion romance, sex and money – such a bore.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

In the next four weeks, a gaggle of planets will sit opposite you. (Wanna dance?) This opposition will create a variety of influences, one of which is that you will need more rest and more sleep. Another influence is that you will have more objectivity in viewing your relationships, which means you can better understand them. (This applies to professional partnerships as well as marriage.) Venus will pave the way in all these relationships and make things warmer and friendlier. (Even with your enemies.) Mars however, will make you easily annoyed with people. (Gulp.) It can stir up tension in relationships. Because of Mars, you need to be patient. Start shopping for autumn boots. (Have some fun.)

Northern and Southern Hemisphere Weekly Horoscope

Starting on Sunday, August 18, 2019

All Signs

Just a few days left of Leo then swoosh! We’re into Virgo. This means our desire to be divas and cavort theatrically with others will mellow as we begin to think about ways to improve ourselves. First, on the list will be an increased focus on what and how much we drink and on what and how much we eat. A nourishing diet contributes to beauty but also to health and longevity! Why this switch? The sign of Virgo rules the intestines and they don’t fool around. Virgos have tried every diet in the books. But hey – when we’re all old – they will look great because they always took care of themselves. They know that a balanced diet is not a toasted buttered bagel in each hand.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You charge forward into life headfirst, always eager — the leader of the pack. Small wonder that this week marks a turning point when you suddenly will be gripped by that back-to-school panic. “Shops must be visited! Money must be spent!” Your desire to get better organized will most strongly be reflected at work and in your job because this is where you are going to give it your best shot. You want to be efficient and productive, and you’re prepared to work hard to get results. Not only will you work hard, you will delegate to others as well. Fortunately, people will be cooperative! This gives you time to ponder how you can get better organized in all aspects of your life. Are you going to alphabetize your spices and colour code your closet?

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Although many people are gearing up for that back-to-school moment, you are entering serious party mode! Whaat? If you can, please slip away on vacation during the next four weeks to live it up and enjoy life! The overall theme of this next five weeks is that you want the freedom to do your own thing and be yourself. You don’t have to please anyone else. Love affairs, amusements, creative self-expression and fun activities with kids will all appeal. You feel confident and relaxed because there’s no need to pretend to be what you are not. Nevertheless, many of you will tackle home repairs and enjoy family confabs.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

It’s been busy and this week marks a shift of focus for the next five weeks to home, family and your private life. Renovations, residential moves and redecorating projects will demand your attention. This same planetary influence will bring real-estate opportunities or a chance to rent something better. This month ahead is perfect to entertain friends and family at home, especially to show off what you’ve been doing. Life has been hectic! Now you need a chance to cocoon and relax. Do what you can to keep the peace at home because increased activity can trigger conflict. “Have the courage to take your own thoughts seriously for they will shape your life.” (Albert Einstein)

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

The back-to-school theme will grip you now even if you don’t have kids going to school. Why? It’s an ingrained habit from the past. It’s that little voice on your shoulder whispering into your ear saying, “The party’s over. Do the laundry and find your bedroom floor.” Not only will you be busy with personal tasks, your schedule will be packed with short trips, increased time with siblings and relatives plus lots of reading, studying and writing. There’s only 24 hours in a day and you’re booked! Look around you at your immediate surroundings to see what you want to change. How do you handle your casual relationships? Now is the time to be clear about your position on things.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

“Show me the money!” For the next five weeks, your focus is on cash flow, earnings and major purchases. Some of you will review your summer spending and grab a drink. “Aaagh?” However, you might decide to boost your earnings, which is why you will hatch moneymaking ideas along with ways to cut back on spending. (Smart to tackle both ends of this situation.) Venus guarantees you will attract money to you this month! It also guarantees you will buy pretty things for yourself and loved ones. Avoid disputes with someone about how you to spend your money. For you, the right to spend your money symbolizes personal freedom.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

For the next month, it’s all about you! The Sun, Venus and Mars are in your sign, shortly followed by your ruler Mercury. This empowers you and gives you a chance to rejuvenate yourself! Both the Sun and Mars will boost your stamina, motivation and drive! You won’t hesitate to defend your best interests and go after what you want, which is why this will be an amazing, productive month. Make note: This same month is also a terrific time to buy wardrobe goodies that you will love. Use this blessing! You will have opportunities to state your views to others because they will listen and hear you. You rule!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Fellow Libran Dwight D. Eisenhower said, “In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless but planning is indispensable.” Of course! The process of defining goals and the parameters that affect them gives you lots of information. For the next month, you’re in a holding pattern waiting for the Sun to enter your sign. That’s why this is the best time all year to make goals for your new year ahead. Goals will give you a clearer focus about what is important to you. They offer more clarity in decision-making. In turn, this gives you better control over your future and also a sense of purpose. What do you want for your new year ahead?

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

In the next month, you will be more involved with groups — both formal and casual because you will be most effective working and cooperating with others. Friendships will be important as you realize the role they play in your life. Study your friends. What is true of your friends is generally also true of you. You will enjoy your friends and realize how fond you are of someone. Possibly, a friend will become a lover. This is also a good time to identify goals and think about how you want to pursue them. Many of you will be involved in physical activities with others such as athletics, especially in competition. Go team!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You are entering an auspicious month ahead. The reason it is a special time is because without any effort on your part, you will suddenly shine in the eyes of bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs. They see you as competent, capable and successful. Because of this, they’ll ask you to take on increased responsibilities or they will ask for advice. It’s important to accept their respect and admiration and cooperate because you will succeed! You will feel more ambitious; and you will also feel a greater ease in dealing with others because people are going to be favourably inclined toward you! (In fact, a romance with someone older or a mentor figure might begin.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Do everything in your power to travel in the next month because this is what you really want to do! If you cannot travel, then make an effort to explore your own city so that you can expand your knowledge, and at the same time, feel stimulated by new experiences. Likewise, in the next month, if you take courses or go back to school, you will love it! You will find it pleasurable to learn new things. You might also be attracted to people from different countries and different cultures. New love with someone “different” might begin. However, you might find you have to defend your beliefs. If so, don’t force your views on others. (There are none so deaf as those who are wearing ear buds.)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

In the next month, you will feel strong compulsions surfacing. Basically, you want to experience life on a feeling level – not just intellectual. Perhaps you will meet someone who produces this effect on you? Or perhaps they will provoke you to explore psychological self inquiry? During this same time, you will benefit from the wealth and resources of others. Yay! People will give you things! And it will be easier to get a loan or mortgage from a bank. Admittedly, you might encounter disputes about shared property, inheritances or insurance issues. Nevertheless, life favours you now. (Good to know.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

For the next month, a handful of planets will oppose your sign. This is why you will need more sleep and more rest. This is also why you will need more patience when dealing with partners and close friends because Mars will be opposite your sign. This happens every two years for a month and when it does, you feel easily annoyed with those who are close to you. In truth, they might not be doing anything different. Therefore, this is a test of who you are and how you regard others. Fortunately Venus opposite your sign will help you make peace in all your relationships. Venus will also help you express your affection to others and make your feelings clear to them.
