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 7- August 13, 2017)
ARIES [March 21-April 20]
This week the Sun and Mars activate your creativity zone, which encourages you to improvise and be as spontaneous as possible. Then the creative cream will really rise to the top! Other suitable outlets for your fiery energy are vigorous sport, extreme travel or a personal passion project. And is your current peer group in a state of flux? Over the coming month [courtesy of the Lunar Eclipse] a friendship could end suddenly. While a new one develops in unexpected ways.
TAURUS [April 21-May 21]
Monday night’s Lunar Eclipse lights up your Brilliant Career zone. But are you making the most of the numerous opportunities that are buzzing around at the moment? Don’t be a bashful Bull! It’s time to step up to the professional plate and show others what you are really capable of. Amusement and entertainment are highlighted on Thursday. While Saturday’s super Venus/Neptune connection is sublime for creative inspiration, spiritual pursuits and/or romantic interludes.
GEMINI [May 22-June 21]
When it comes to social media and networking, avoid procrastinating. It’s time for a creative and proactive approach that makes you stand out from the crowd. Monday night’s Lunar Eclipse urges you to focus on your goals and aspirations for the future. Plus involve a loved one in your long-term plans. They have an alternative perspective that will open up your options considerably. You could also play gracious Gemini host to family or friends who come to stay from far away.
CANCER [June 22-July 23]
Do your best to avoid being a snappy Crab, as the Lunar Eclipse magnifies your mood swings and heightens your emotional sensitivity. If you’ve been burying your head in the sand, then a financial problem could come to a head and demand to be addressed. The planets encourage you to be direct about dealing with challenges. Definitely no side-stepping allowed! Saturday is the best day of the week to express your creativity or organise a romantic rendezvous.
Razzle-dazzle Lions love to hog the limelight. But this week the focus is off you [for a change] and it’s loved ones who will demand your undivided attention. So find the time to give it gladly. Attached Cats – is there a tug-of-war between you and your partner? Do you want more freedom, while they yearn for more commitment? The only satisfactory solution is to meet them half-way. Some singles will experience a cosmic connection with a fellow Leo or an avant-garde Aquarian.
VIRGO [Aug 24-Sep 23]
Virgos thrive on a robust and reliable daily routine. But this week [courtesy of Monday night’s erratic Lunar Eclipse] a domestic matter, work situation or professional relationship is likely to veer off in a totally unexpected direction. So be open to timetable changes and keep your adaptability muscles well-flexed. On Thursday, Mercury boosts your brain power and Venus revitalises your confidence. So it’s a terrific time to read, research, give a speech, study or socialise.
LIBRA [Sep 24-Oct 23]
Under the influence of Monday night’s Lunar Eclipse, a platonic relationship could take a surprisingly romantic turn. Or a creative new friend may come into your life. You can be dazzled by outer beauty though, so make sure you’re not deceived by glossy outward appearances. Look beneath the surface to evaluate a person’s true inner worth. On the weekend, put aside some special ‘me time’ where you can concentrate on the three R’s – rest, relaxation and renewal.
SCORPIO [Oct 24-Nov 22]
You have ambitious plans and goals for the future but sometimes you hold yourself back for fear of making a mistake. Monday night’s Lunar Eclipse urges you to be passionately proactive as you reach for the stars! But – when it comes to a child, teenager or close friend – all is not as it appears. So factor that into your approach. On the weekend, a loved one turns to you for some insightful words of wisdom. If you listen to your intuition, then you’ll know just what to say.
SAGITTARIUS [Nov 23-Dec 21]
The Lunar Eclipse encourages you to explore and experiment as you study, travel or venture into brave new personal territory. It’s also very important to capitalise on your current international contacts. With careful nurturing, who knows where they will lead in the future? The weekend is a wonderful time to patch up a misunderstanding with a family member. If you walk a mile in their shoes, then you’ll have more patience and empathy for their current situation.
CAPRICORN [Dec 22-Jan 20]
With the Lunar Eclipse lighting up your cash zone, look for innovative solutions to current money problems. If you develop a second stream of income, then you’ll feel much more secure about your financial future. Communication planet Mercury is visiting fellow earth sign Virgo, which suits critical thinking; research work; facts and figures; plus practical projects. But don’t let minor details blind you to the bigger picture. Step back and take a much broader view.
AQUARIUS [Jan 21-Feb 19]
The loopy Lunar Eclipse [in your sign] amplifies your avant-garde nature and revs up your restless streak. [As birthday bohemian Cara Delevingne declares “Embrace your weirdness!”] You’ll feel like instigating some major changes but be careful that the modifications you make are a progressive improvement on what you are replacing. Inspiration for the week comes from Aquarian, writer Lewis Carroll “I can’t go back to yesterday because I was a different person then.”
PISCES [Feb 20-March 20]
This week, if you are struggling for ideas and direction, then look within for some innovative inspiration. With the Sun, Mars and Saturn visiting your professional zones, dynamic and decisive action is what’s needed at work. If you procrastinate and dither around [in typical Piscean fashion] then lucrative opportunities and important connections will promptly pass you by. Saturday is a divine day to dabble in creative pursuits or help someone in need.
