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]
Your ruler Mars is retrograde (until November 14) so motivation will be low and impatience high. And the more you try to assert your authority and independence with others, the more stressful and frustrating things will be. Just remember – you can’t be the boss all of the time. Calm down and recalibrate Rams! If you are more consultative, then the week will run more smoothly. Sunday is a good day to catch up with like-minded folk in your local community.
TAURUS [April 21- May 21]
This week the celestial message is patience. Busy Bulls have been very active but with Mars reversing through your solitude zone, you’ll find rest, relaxation and reflection are just what the doctor ordered. If you look to the future with a positive attitude, then fabulous opportunities will manifest – eventually – but you must be extra patient. The weekend is a wonderful time to write down your goals and aspirations, plus work on your talents and strengths.
GEMINI [May 22-June 21]
With Mercury (your ruling planet) at odds with Pluto, Saturn and retrograde Mars, delays and disruptions will unsettle your usually genial Gemini demeanour. You’ll find circumstances are constantly evolving, so keep your schedule flexible and your mind open to sudden changes. It is a suitable time to do research or revise written work (rather than take a trip or launch a brand new project). The buzz words for this week? Adapt, amend, review and redo.
CANCER [June 22-July 23]
Dynamic Mars is still reversing through your career zone until November 14. So it’s not an ideal time to kick-start a promotion, initiate a work project, launch a product or look for a new job. If you do, then expect plenty of annoying delays and frustrations. On the weekend, Venus and the North Node stimulate your money zone. So, the more creatively and generously you share financial ideas and collaborate with others, the more successful you’ll be in the future.
LEO [July 24-Aug 23]
This week your communication, motivation and inspiration are muted by retrograde Mars and slow-moving Saturn. Which will tend to squash your Leo ebullience and Cat creativity. But don’t let difficulties and delays deter you from following your dreams! Be inspired by real life Superman, birthday great Christopher Reeve. “So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable.”
VIRGO [Aug 24-Sep 23]
Expect a very frustrating week Virgo! Mars is reversing through your shared finances zone, so it’s not a good time to lend cash, borrow money or initiate a financial partnership. Instead, be patient and wait until after November 14, when Mars turns direct. On Wednesday (when Saturn squares Mercury) energy levels will be low and you could also feel pessimistic about a current project. It’s Equinox week, so try to maintain a sense of balance and perspective.
LIBRA [Sep 24-Oct 23]
With reactive Mars reversing through your relationship zone, tread gingerly with a sulky partner, an unreliable lover, a grumpy house mate or a frustrated family member. You’ll find the more patient and diplomatic you are, the less stressful the week will be. And don’t let other people deter your ambitions or derail your dreams! Be inspired by birthday great, actor and disability rights activist Christopher Reeve “Don’t give up. Don’t lose hope. Don’t sell out.”
SCORPIO [Oct 24-Nov 22]
Mars is reversing through your job zone, so it will be difficult to get the ducks all lined up at work. If you are patient and persistent (which are Scorpio strengths) then you’ll make slow but steady progress. Being extra cooperative with colleagues, clients and customers will also lead to long-term rewards. But avoid getting drawn into a power struggle (or conspiracy theory) in your local community. It is a good time to revise and reboot your exercise regime.
SAGITTARIUS [Nov 23-Dec 21]
Sagittarians usually love to rush! But with Mars retrograde (and Saturn also slowing things down) your need for speed is curtailed and everything seems to move at a snail’s pace. Your limited patience will wear thin with pedantic people, frustrating family members and confusing communication. You prefer a spontaneous approach but you’ll find some sort of solid daily routine will help you tackle projects in a more sustainable and satisfying way.
CAPRICORN [Dec 22-Jan 20]
With Mars in retro mode, plus Saturn (your patron planet) also hindering progress, you may feel as if you’re going nowhere. The stars are testing your stamina and persistence, so don’t give up. You need to tap into your bountiful reserves of inner strength as you pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and set a positive new course (especially at work). So your mantra is from birthday great, writer F. Scott Fitzgerald “Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat.”
AQUARIUS [Jan 21-Feb 19]
Be careful when talking and driving, as Mars reverses through your conversation and transport zone. Otherwise you could find yourself smack bang in the middle of an argument or accident. So slow down! There is much inner peace to be found via activities like prayer, meditation, contemplation, yoga or tai chi as you calm down and listen to the wise guidance from within. With Venus visiting your relationship zone, cooperation is the secret to positive partnerships.
PISCES [Feb 20-March 20]
Mars continues reversing through your self-esteem and money zone (until November 14). Plus Pluto, Mercury and Saturn throw a spanner into a close relationship or financial venture, so it feels like it’s going backwards. It will take oodles of self-belief, positive self-talk, financial discipline, patience and persistence to get things back on track. On the weekend there’ll be an opportunity to patch up a work problem or a domestic dilemma, so grab it with both hands.
