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
AUGUST 24-30, 2020
ARIES [March 20-April 20]
Resist the overwhelming urge to be an impulsive and impetuous Ram! Your boss planet Mars turns retrograde (from Thursday until November 14) so you need to apply the brakes and think before you speak and act. Otherwise you could upset others with your hasty words and reckless actions. When it comes to your Aries aspirations for the future, the main quality you need to cultivate at the moment is patience, as you slow your motor and cool your heels.
TAURUS [April 21- May 21]
Retrograde Mars and Chiron are both hiding in your seclusion zone. So it’s time to help those around you (especially family members) in a quiet, behind-the-scenes kind of way. The Sun and Jupiter could also send some welcome news, especially involving a child, teenager, close friend or foreign connection. Wise words for the week are from author and fellow Taurean, Deepak Chopra. “The less you open your heart to others, the more your heart suffers.”
GEMINI [May 22-June 21]
Hasty words and ambiguous comments will only lead to drama and confusion (especially on Thursday and Friday). Jumping to conclusions is definitely not recommended! So slow down and listen carefully to what other people are saying. A cherished goal or an ambitious dream could also be delayed, as Mars reverses through your hopes and wishes zone for the next two months. Be extra patient! Good things will eventually come to Geminis who wait.
CANCER [June 22-July 23]
Your communication and partnership zones are activated by the Sun and Jupiter. So it’s time to exercise your brain as you talk, text, tweet, post, publish and converse as creatively as possible. Having a fruitful conversation with a loved one is also favoured. However, with Mars reversing through your career zone, it’s not a good week to start a business, initiate a work project or look for a new job. Instead, be patient and bide your time in tenacious Crab style.
LEO [July 24-Aug 23]
Prepare to sparkle and shine, as Venus vamps through Leo and the Sun (your power planet) links up with buoyant Jupiter and glamorous Neptune. Cat confidence, creativity and compassion are highlighted. So make the most of it and do something special, as you tackle a pet project or help someone in need. But beware the tendency to be financially misled or susceptible to false flattery (especially on Friday). Keep your trusty Truth Detector set on high!
VIRGO [Aug 24-Sep 23]
This week Neptune and retrograde Mars mess with your sensitive nervous system, so do all you can to wind down, worry less and relax more. Your ‘to-do- list’ can wait. So your mantra for the moment is “I want to be alone” (famously declared by Virgo movie star Greta Garbo) as you withdraw from the busyness around you, tap into your intuition and receive wise guidance from within. Plus pay attention to the rich symbolism in your nightly dreams.
LIBRA [Sep 24-Oct 23]
This week’s stars encourage you to join a group, class or club that will help develop a latent Libran creative talent – whether it’s writing, singing, dancing, painting, performing, photography or playing music. Don’t expect relationships to run like clockwork though, as Mars reverses through your partnership zone (from Thursday until November 14). If you respond to problems deftly and diplomatically, then things will soon be back on an even keel.
SCORPIO [Oct 24-Nov 22]
Retrograde Mars reminds you to reboot your exercise routine so it is more sustainable. Wednesday’s lucky Sun-Jupiter link encourages you to broaden your horizons (physically, mentally and spiritually). It’s time to expand your circle of influence and make positive changes (within your peer group, local community or further afield). Be inspired by birthday great, writer D. H. Lawrence “I want to live my life so that my nights are not full of regrets.”
SAGITTARIUS [Nov 23-Dec 21]
You’re keen to express your ideas and enjoy plenty of stimulating conversations with a wide range of interesting people, as Jupiter revs up your curious and social side. But be careful you don’t write (or say) the wrong thing to the wrong person! Make sure you use your considerable communication skills to motivate and inspire others in positive ways. So your motto is from Sagittarian writer George Eliot “Blessed is the influence of one true loving soul on another.”
CAPRICORN [Dec 22-Jan 20]
The Sun and Jupiter activate your knowledge and adventure zone, so start thinking about where you’ll go travelling next – physically and/or mentally. But expect some confusion on Friday, when nebulous Neptune scrambles your communication antennae. And don’t let anyone dim your curiosity or diminish your dreams. So your motto for the moment is from birthday great, writer D. H. Lawrence. “Life is travelling to the edge of knowledge, and then going beyond.”
AQUARIUS [Jan 21-Feb 19]
Magic and mystery are around you this week Aquarius! If you’re looking for answers then keep your eyes and ears wide open, as you search for important (and clandestine) clues along the way. And make sure you favour a sense of wonder over mundane complacency. Your motto for the moment is from birthday great, writer Roald Dahl. “The greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”
PISCES [Feb 20-March 20]
The Sun and Jupiter bless romantic and platonic relationships, joint ventures and group activities. You’re bursting with ideas and are keen to help, but don’t disappoint others by being disorganised and promising more than you can actually deliver. Sunday’s Venus-Chiron trine activates your creative, compassionate and contemplative sides. So it’s the perfect time to lose yourself in an artistic project, help someone in need or meditate on the meaning of life.
