ASTROLOGY August 20 – August 27, 2016

ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 20)
Relationships are becoming more important. They are your ultimate mirror. What you are seeing in there is your reflection, no matter how hard you fight against seeing it. Saturn is banking on your Mars energy getting some wisdom. Learn the lesson this time. Sort out your side of the story.

TAURUS (Apr 21 – May 20)
Let go of your grip. To hold on when it’s time to let go just causes heartache. Life is asking you to be like a tree letting go of her leaves in autumn. Though this might seem scary, it is in fact what’s required, to be able to expand into the next adventure life has hiding up its sleeve for you.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 21)
There’s some pretty solid planetary energy opposing you from over in Sagittarius. Saturn and Mars are calling you to be very responsible for your actions. The tendency to blame is programmed in to us with our mother’s milk. Transformation requires deprogramming ourselves from this habit.

CANCER (June 22 – Jul 22)
The Moon starts the week deep in the Pacific trenches of Pisces. Feelings are all over the place; deep and overwhelming. If they are driving you nuts, throw on some irresistible music and dance until you can dance no more. All your stress will have melted into the earth in the process.

LEO (July 23 – Aug 22)
The Sun is at the tail-end of Leo. You are well set up for a creative shift. Changes are in the air. The Moon is inviting you to enjoy whatever mystery is present in your life. In fact, the world is becoming so demystified, if you can find a thread of mystery, know that you’ve found gold.

VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22)
The Sun arrives in Virgo towards the end of the week. This will make it four planets in Virgo. You have a whole bank of cosmic lights shining in your direction. Not only that, there is a collection of planets in Pisces, opposing you. Life really wants you to know what you stand for. Do you?

LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 23)
You are laying low. There’s lots happening around you. There’s plenty of action one step removed. You are certainly being forced to ponder. Venus is in Virgo. This means that it would be a good idea to step out of ideas and into action – if you want to be really in tune with the universe.

SCORPIO (Oct 24 – Nov 21)
There are plenty of shifts and changes happening in the social fabric, but you are at ease with these changes. Where others see catastrophe, you see a natural process that is somehow geared towards making us richer and wiser. Your innate sense of the transformative nature of things is gold.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
These are tricky times. There are multiple differing interests gathered around the one table. Each is going for what they see to be true, yet are faced with the inescapable presence of others with opposing agendas. We have to work it out folks. The only possible way is for us to grow up.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Blessings are raining down on you. Where there are practical things to attend to, use your skills, knowing you have all the support in the world. When you want to entertain your capacity for celebration, dive in till you find your bliss. Take ‘work hard: play hard’ up to the next level.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Put in the hours. Do what you have to do. Use the discipline that life is asking you to bow to, as a meditative regimen. It will change when the time is right. For now, if you go with it, you will learn things about yourself, your resilience and your strength, that you haven’t had a clue about.

PISCES (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Relationship is intense. The beautiful mirror of the ‘other’ is showing you patterns from the past that you thought were done and dusted. If you spit the dummy, you’ll miss an opportunity. Take all feedback on board. You’ll momentarily squirm with wounded pride – and you’ll grow.
