The thrilling weekend finally comes to an end and a busy week is ahead so let’s see what stars have stored in for you in your weekly Astro prediction by the World renowned Astro writer Joanne Madeline Moore.
Horoscope (August 20, 2018 – August 26, 2018)
ARIES [March 20-April 20]
With Mercury now direct in your creativity zone, make sure you capitalise on your fiery creative talents. But don’t power ahead with actual projects until next week, when Mars (your ruler) finally moves forwards. You can easily become totally self-absorbed with your ideas, moods, dreams and daily dramas. But, with the Full Moon and Neptune highlighting your humanitarian side, it’s a wonderful weekend to re-connect with others, roll up your sleeves, and help those around you.
TAURUS [April 21-May 21]
Now that Mercury is moving forwards again, a frustrating family matter should gradually get better. Avoid being a stubborn Bull though! You’ll find the more flexible and understanding you are, the more quickly things will improve. Then the weekend Grand Earth Trine and Full Moon bring friendship, your peer group and your social circle into firm focus. So think about how you can network with sympatico people in more innovative, creative and productive ways.
GEMINI [May 22-June 21]
Hallelujah and praise the stars! After a long and exceedingly exasperating three weeks, Mercury (your patron planet) is finally moving forwards. So your natural talent for endless questioning, constant chatter and continual movement will start returning in spades. As writer (and birthday great) Dorothy Parker observed “The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity.” So put your mercurial mind to work with a stimulating new job, project or activity ASAP.
CANCER [June 22-July 23]
Mercury is now direct but disruptive Mars is still reversing through your relationship zone. So communicating with loved ones will continue to be frustrating until next week. You’ve certainly got inspiring aspirations for the future. But don’t commit to an ambitious new plan unless you’re sure you have the time, energy and motivation to follow through on your well-meant intentions. Especially involving a joint venture, a group endeavour or a community project.
Thank goodness Mercury is finally moving forwards in your sign! So communication should start to improve and projects that have been delayed will receive a welcome nudge. But personal energy levels won’t pick up until next week, when Mars moves forwards in your wellbeing zone. The weekend looks wonderful, as the Sun (your power planet) trines Uranus and Saturn. Which will boost your Cat charisma and heighten your creative touch and/or financial flair.
VIRGO [Aug 24-Sep 23]
Over the last three weeks, many Virgos have been in hermit mode. You’re starting to feel more sociable but things won’t really pick up until next week, when motivation planet Mars moves forwards in your social and entertainment zone. Under the influence of the Full Moon, the weekend is a wonderful time to start reconnecting (in meaningful ways) with family and friends. Plus – under the influence of the Grand Earth Trine – it’s also a fortuitous time to formulate a practical new plan.
LIBRA [Sep 24-Oct 23]
Communication should gradually improve, as Mercury moves forwards in your friendship and networking zone. So do all you can to smooth over disagreements and get things moving in a positive direction. Sunday’s Full Moon highlights your health and wellbeing zone. So choose an exercise that you really enjoy. Be inspired by actress Blake Lively (who turns 31 on Saturday). “I really don’t like the gym. I like experiences. So I take any chance to ride a bicycle or go on a hike.”
SCORPIO [Oct 24-Nov 22]
Don’t waste precious time worrying, especially at work. Mercury is direct so connect with colleagues, tell them what’s on your mind, and keep them up-to-date with your plans. The weekend Full Moon (and Grand Earth Trine) encourages you to look at a relationship with a child, lover or friend in a perceptive new light. If you keep doing what you’re doing, you’ll keep getting what you’re getting! So perhaps it’s time to re-set boundaries and road-test some creative new strategies?
SAGITTARIUS [Nov 23-Dec 21]
Adventurous Archers … it’s time to start planning your next holiday, as Mercury is now moving forwards in your travel zone. Exotic destinations with colourful cultures will appeal to your restless gypsy gene. Family matters take centre stage on the weekend, when the Full Moon shines a bright spotlight on a domestic drama. Avoid being superficial and slap-dash. Smart Sagittarians will look for an innovative approach that leads to a satisfactory long-term solution.
CAPRICORN [Dec 22-Jan 20]
With Mercury now direct, plus the Full Moon activating your conversation and international zones, it’s time to link up with people from all over the place. The weekend’s powerful Sun/Uranus/Saturn Grand Earth Trine also provides a golden opportunity for you to influence people in a positive and productive fashion (both in person and online). Which is what Capricorns can do so well! So use this week’s planetary patterns to Communicate, Converse and Connect.
AQUARIUS [Jan 21-Feb 19]
Has a relationship been rather stressful over the last three weeks? With Mercury moving forwards, things are set to improve as you work together to achieve a win-win outcome. However, the weekend is not a good time to go on a shopping spree or lend money to others. You’re liable to make financial decisions based on your emotions, which will fluctuate wildly under the full moonbeams. The Grand Earth Trine encourages you to take an unusually sensible and steady approach.
PISCES [Feb 20-March 20]
Mercury is now moving forwards in your daily routine zone. So the pace of life will gradually pick up, and communicating with other people will progressively improve. Then the Full Moon lights up your sign on the weekend. So it’s the perfect time to be the most confident, creative, perceptive and persuasive Piscean you can possibly be. As American actress (and birthday babe) Blake Lively wisely observes “The most beautiful thing you can wear is confidence.”
