Weekly Horoscopes for 8/20-8/26, 2018
Inertia; “The resistance of any physical object to any change in its position and state of motion. This includes changes to the object’s speed, direction, or state of rest.”
Hi kids!!! We have 5 retrograde planets and 3 major inconjuncts this week, so after you read your horoscope if you’re still impatient about what’s not happening in your life, refer to the above definition…. Que sera sera……
Aries- Venus transiting through your House of Relationships might have you feeling a little more amorous than usual, however, since she inconjuncts Neptune behind the scenes and squares Pluto in your House of Public Image, hold off on any crushes or hit and runs for the time being. The Sun in your House of Romance inconjunct Mars retrograde in your House of Career would also indicate you should probably avoid any work place romances as well; in short, let this Venus transit be about friendship and camaraderie rather than anything epic, like say, Doctor Zhivago or Boogie Nights. If you don’t believe me and insist on being either Don Juan or Juanita, don’t be surprised if Jupiter in your House of Intimacy squaring Mercury in your House of Romance shows you just how thin the line is that separates love and hate……just sayin’.
Taurus- If you’re not being treated the way you think you deserve in either a romantic or professional partnership, this could be the week when the matador loses the bullfight. Jupiter in your House of Relationships is squaring Mercury in your House of Foundations, so don’t hesitate to speak your mind if you’re feeling agitated and you just might finally get through to that “special” person who’s just doesn’t seem to get it. You are no one’s option and with Uranus in your sign you might just end up being someone’s headache; a word to the wise! The Sun will be entering your House of Romance later in the week, and when he does he’ll be forming a Grand Trine with Uranus as well as Saturn retrograde in your House of Philosophy, meaning don’t hesitate to kick to the curb anyone who disrespects your heart (or any other part of you for that matter). Love begins at home with “y-o-u.”
Gemini- You may have your eye on someone this week but try not to be too easy if you can help it. Venus in your House of Romance inconjunct Neptune in your House of Communication would indicate that if you can be fooled, you will, so be careful. Mr. Saturn has a saying you might benefit from and it goes, “I’ve never had my heart broken, but I’ve dropped it a few times.” Hopefully, a word to the wise on this will be sufficient. Venus squaring Pluto in your House of Sex and Intimacy could make you an unpleasant customer if you should get your feelings hurt, so make sure you have an attorney on speed dial and plenty of bail money, Uranus behind the scenes in your chart could end up with shit get crazy real quick.
Cancer- Venus is passing through your House of Home and Symbolic Foundations, so it may be high time for you to stop trying to fix the world and instead bring some of that “Good Lovin’” of yours on home to hubby or wifey. Neptune in your House of Philosophy is about amore, but seeing as the King of the Sea is inconjunct Venus, perhaps it means that you’ve been taking a significant other for granted and they deserve better, especially with Venus also squaring Pluto in your House of Romance. Try to make sure that sparks of passion don’t inadvertantly erupt into a crime of passion because they’re all fired up with nowhere to go; just sayin’, take it on advisement. Instead, why don’t you listen to Uranus in your House of Dreams aligning with Saturn retrograde in your House of Realtionships, as they suggest perhaps coming up with a little surprise to add some spice to that good home cookin’ you and your significant other just love to share. Bon appetite!!!
Leo- With Neptune in your House of Transformation inconjunct both Venus in your House of Communication and Mercury in your sign, your dialogues with others (or lack thereof) will be of paramount importance now. Jupiter in your House of Foundation squaring Mercury could make it very easy for you to be misunderstood, especially if you choose to monologue at people rather than dialogue as mentioned above. Uranus retrograde in your House of Public Image aligning with Saturn retrograde in your House of Work could require you to walk back a pronouncement you made in the past that was either misconstrued or just badly expressed, take the time to do it, especially with the Sun entering Virgo later in the week to form a Grand Trine with Uranus and Saturn; your humility and willingness to admit you were wrong will have a surprising effect at galvanizing public trust in your favor. What originally came out bad could end up good.
Virgo- It is very important now to clearly express how you feel about someone so they don’t assume your silence or shyness is indifference, or worse, some kind of subtle criticism. This is because Neptune in a double inconjunct to both Venus in your House of Self Worth and Mercury behind the scenes will likely make it very easy for any lack of confidence you might be feeling to appear as if it’s an unsatisfactory judgment of someone else. The Sun entering your sign midweek will subsequently form a Grand Trine with both Saturn retrograde in your House of Creativity and Uranus retrograde in your House of Philosophy, meaning that any risks you are willing to take to express yourself now could yield some quite surprising dividends; be willing to push your comfort zone as vulnerability and honesty could really be your forte right now. Hell, you might even be a poet and don’t know it!
Libra- With Mars in your House of Foundation inconjunct to the Sun in your House of Dreams, a very valuable lesson may await you this week in the mostly unlikely place or under the most unexpected circumstances. Neptune in your House of Work inconjunct to both Venus in your sign and Mercury in your House of Groups could likely provide you with some real significant insights if you’re could just manage to shut up for once instead of always needing to point out some injustice or other. Acceptance is a great form of spiritual insight when it allows one to see something clearly for what it is, no matter how you may feel about it one way or the other. Jupiter in your House of Self Worth will be aligning nicely with Neptune, and this will likely refer to how the lesson previously mentioned will truly make you wise, that is, if you’re willing to go with the flow.
“The only wisdom we can hope to acquire
Is the wisdom of humility; humility is endless.”
Scorpio- Neptune in your House of Romance inconjunct to both Mercury in your House of Public Image and Venus behind the scenes could see you surprising someone by your interest in them. After all, an intense knockout like you wouldn’t be expected to have a crush, most folks would just assume you crush the world on a daily basis with that smoldering charisma of yours. The truth however, is that you’re a mushy little romantic just like everyone else, who is susceptible to embarrassing obsessions and wondering if Mr. or Ms. Fabulous even notices you. Uranus retrograde in your House of Relationships aligning with Saturn retrograde in your House of Communication could be like a cat that’s got your tongue, but don’t worry, quite often it’s the look of love rather than small talk that say’s it all; and you got a patent on that kind of intensity! As the song goes;
“The look of love
Is saying so much more than
Just words could ever say
And what my heart has heard
Well it takes my breath away”
Sagittarius- The Sun in your House of Philosophy is inspiring you to imagine a better situation for yourself, although an inconjunct of the Sun to Mars in your House of Self Worth is leaving you feeling a little depressed about how to actually get to such a place. Some additional inconjuncts between Neptune in your House of Home and Family with both Venus in your House of Dreams and Mercury in your House of Philosophy could possibly offer some valuable insights here, but only if you’re willing to honestly acknowledge how your family relationships (or lack thereof) have established the foundations for whatever it is you currently believe about yourself. Saturn retrograde in your House of Self Worth aligning with Uranus retrograde and the Sun entering your House of Public Image can certainly help now with breaking any unhealthy patterns you may have, although it will probably be Jupiter in your House of Secrets aligning with Neptune who’ll be asking the really important question when you are challenged with, “Do you feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?” What’s your answer?
Capricorn- If you think telling someone what they want to hear as opposed to telling the truth will solve a current problem at work, you’ll soon learn otherwise as Venus in your House of Career inconjuncts Neptune in your House of Communication and The Sun in your House of Transformation inconjuncts Mars retrograde in your sign. If it isn’t pointed out that the current problem is the fault of the person who caused it, then it will have to be somebody’s, just be careful you’re not elected as the scapegoat. As the Sun moves into your House of Philosophy later in the week, he’ll be aligning beautifully with both Saturn retrograde in your sign, and Uranus retrograde in your House of Creativity, meaning that if you had the stones to speak the truth to the pompous buffoon that was trying to palm off excuses, then the chickens will certainly be going home to roost; but it won’t be your address they’ll be going to. Stay honest, stay strong, stay safe!
Aquarius- You may start out the week believing what you want to believe, especially with Venus in your House of Philosophy inconjunct Neptune in your House of Self Worth. The only problem is, with the Sun in your House of Relationships inconjunct Mars behind the scenes, there will also be someone keeping score on the situation and they may not necessarily be a fan of you or what you believe is true. Jupiter in your House of Public Image will also be aligning with Neptune, which could help you dodge a bullet by smelling the poo before you put your foot in it, especially if you can hold on until the Sun crosses into your House of Transformation and aligns with Uranus retrograde in your House of Foundations and Saturn retrograde behind the scenes. Everyone makes errors in judgment at some point, but not everyone can walk it back into a coup d’e tat that makes their initial ill informed illusion look like a stroke of genius, congratulations.
Pisces- Neptune in your sign inconjunct Venus in your House of Transformation may have you doubting your ability to meet a new challenge, yet at the same time, the Sun in your House of Work inconjunct Mars retrograde in your House of Dreams won’t let you just sit back and give up. What to do? At this point enter Jupiter in your House of Philosophy to lead the cheering section and amp up the inspirational rhetoric, while at the same time the Sun entering the sign of Virgo will form an earthy Grand Trine with Uranus and Saturn, a trio of badass mercenaries representing all the “Lawyers, Guns, and Money” you’ll need. Can you hear the bugle cry of the cavalry coming to the rescue yet? When the Full Moon arrives in your sign at the end of the week you’ll probably be feeling a lot less stressed. Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good, and this week will be one of those times.
