This week's horoscopes: Week beginning 19th August

If it’s your birthday…

This could be a super-inspiring year for you, thanks to a delicious Jupiter/Neptune link in your birthday chart. Read books, undertake studies and/or associate with people who make you feel anything is possible. Creativity, situations to do with kids, romance, study and travel are all well-starred for you this coming year. Your love life could be positively dreamy, too.

There are now three planets going backwards in your Career Zone. If you want to make the most of this, then now is the time for you to rethink your ambitions. Are you headed to where you want to be professionally? If not, now is primo time to make changes!

You don’t get a chance like this to restructure your career every day of the week, you really don’t. So decide where you want to go professionally and head that way.

This could be a wonderful week for you and at least one person you adore. The lucky planet Jupiter in your Relationships Zone is getting a boost from mystic Neptune. Love can life you up where you belong, be it familiar, romantic or another kind of love. Make the most of it!

As well, you could find that your love life is actually inspiring you. Lap it up. Single? It’s a great week to meet someone who’s really good for you.

There are amazing energies around. For one thing, your ruler Mercury ends his reverse cycle this week, so you should soon feel like you’re no longer stuck or stalled.

As well, if someone/something has been confusing you lately, that should ease up now and start to
make more sense at. For another thing, the Jupiter/Neptune link is triggering your two work zones, so there’s a high chance you will feel quite inspired professionally. If not? Maybe look for new work?

There is so much intense energy around your most important relationships. You need to tread very carefully, personally and professionally. On one hand, you can detox even the most seemingly noxious relationship.

On the other, you are under a lot of pressure from others. Don’t let it get you down! All that said, this week sees positive vibes in your most important relationships. Hard work you’ve put into getting on better with someone important to you looks like finally paying off.

Mercury ends his retrograde cycle in your sign this week – great news for you (and Geminis, Aquarians and Virgos too). Mercury’s reversing has hopefully given you a chance to review some big life issues. What have you discovered? The answer to your most pressing problem or question should be nigh.

Meanwhile, there is a gorgeous lucky triangle forming in your chart which promises great career success and recognition to Leos who’ve been putting in the effort. Applause awaits. #leosloveapplause

The end of Mercury retrograde means you can stop worrying so much. Mercury (your ruling planet) was going backwards in your Fears and Worries Zone, rehashing old concerns – hopefully, now you can start to work through them and move on.

You should also start to feel more energised and able to move forward with plans, based on information the past few weeks have presented you with. Whatever else you do, leave time for fun. It’s more important than you might realise.

23 September – October 22

Dramas at home and with family are looking more stable this week. You might be very pleasantly surprised at how it all pans out for you personally and/or financially. That said, this is the start of a four week period when laying low will feel very tempting. Yes. B-r-e-a-t-h-e out.

Sign up for an online meditation course or get away for an actual retreat. It will do you a power of good and equip you for the rest of the year!

23 October – November 21

The most important thing for you this week is how you’re thinking. Are you being positive or negative? Remember that like attracts like! You have every reason to be cheerful and optimistic so get your head into that space.

Meditation could be life-changing for you now. (Sorry if you’re one of those Scorpios who says “If ONE more person recommends that I mediate…!” There is a reason everyone keeps suggesting it..!) At work, confusion clears at last and decision-making will be easier.

22 November – December 21

The Sun is moving into your Career Zone while the planetary pile-up in your Money Zone continues unabated. If you want to change your financial set-up or situation, you have amazing stars to do this right now.

Allow yourself to shine professionally and a more secure financial situation can emerge. If you’re not doing as well at work as you would like to, then ask yourself if a lack of confidence or even over-confidence is holding you back. Answer honestly!

As much as you are under pressure, you’re also in a position to become stronger and stronger now. That might apply to you emotionally or physically or both. In your love life, good things can happen quickly. Don’t try too hard to control matters.

Creatively, you’re in a purple patch! You have driven Mars, serious Saturn and combustible Pluto all reversing in your sign. You can also make up for lost ground now and/or maybe even fix some past mistakes.

20 January – February 18

Misunderstandings and confusion in at least one important relationship these past few weeks were ‘designed’ by the heavens to give you a chance to reconsider your position. What do you actually want from the most important people in your life and what adjustments need to be made?

Make some decisions. Your biggest fear remains fear itself. That’s always true to an extent but it’s extra worth thinking about now. What are you scared of and where did the fear come from?

The skies indicate it’s time for you to rethink your daily routines and add some spiritual components to your regular schedule. The more you connect with the Divine now, the better. You are arguably the sign best placed to really get cosmic. Amazing, life-changing revelations can follow.

Someone or something from far away especially now could fire up your imagination. Dream big dreams because dreams really do come true! Relationship-wise, it’s all about communicating, even if your comments surprise people.
