Horoscopes for August 17 to August 23

LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22)

The Sun’s conjunction to Mercury on Friday takes place in your sign, opening the way for better communication. You might have found yourself at loggerheads with loved ones recently and now is the perfect time to redeem the situation, even if it involves eating a little humble pie. The unattached are likely to encounter a challenge on Monday, when coming into contact with an unusual person. Wednesday morning is the best time to decide on an important matter.

VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sep 22)

You are likely to have been spending time away from home during the last few weeks, due to Jupiter’s influence. You probably feel that you have been bitten by the travel bug, which has caused your restless state of mind. Any frustrations that might have beset you will start to abate from Saturday. The Moon enters your sign on Monday night and moves to oppose Uranus on Wednesday when you could find yourself in a tight spot if you are not a little more careful.

LIBRA (Sep 23 to Oct 23)

Friday’s conjunction between the Sun and Mercury is likely to put you in touch with an old friend who might be in need of a helping hand. Your weekend should be eventful as the Moon moves to aspect Mercury and Pluto, which will generate a lively debate and could tease you into setting off on a wild goose chase. Your ruling planet, Venus, is currently retrograde and moves to aspect Pluto on Wednesday, giving ample scope for the unattached to search for true love.

SCORPIO (Oct 24 to Nov 21)

Your imagination will be working overtime on Friday when the Sun joins hands with Mercury, the planet of communication, but you should not allow your mind to play on your fears. Pluto, your ruling planet, is slowing in his retrograde motion in your solar house of income and expenditure, which will relieve the pressure somewhat. There could be a spot of tension in the work place on Monday, which can easily be resolved on Thursday morning, but be patient in the meantime.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21)

The fiery Mars is currently transiting your opposite sign, Gemini, which is almost certain to liven up your emotional life. If you are hoping for peace and quiet, you are likely to be disappointed this weekend but at least you won’t be bored! The Moon enters your sign on Tuesday morning and joins hands with Jupiter on Wednesday morning, which bodes well for the unattached. Wednesday and Thursday are good times for bargain hunting and commercial transactions.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19)

You might have felt that your ambitions have been thwarted in the last few days but things are about to change and your mood is likely to be more upbeat from Saturday, particularly if you happen to be unattached and looking for a partner. Sunday’s conjunction between Mercury and your ruling planet, Saturn, will be helpful to your business plans and any practical works on the home front. Thursday afternoon is a time when you will feel empowered to take on the world!

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18)

You might feel the inclination to make a clean sweep on Friday in your personal life, as the Sun’s conjunction to Mercury opens the way for communication. Saturday’s Moon favours travel and all pursuits connected with leisure and pleasure. Monday’s Moon is likely to bring out the determined side to your nature, particularly when it comes to standing by your principles. The Sun joins hands with Saturn on Wednesday, which is likely to benefit you in business.

PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20)

Someone or something seems to cast a cloud over Friday’s schedule, which could put a damper on your weekend should you allow it. However, your good nature, combined with your sense of humour, could easily rectify the situation. The Moon’s conflict with Neptune is likely to cause some confusion, particularly if you happen to be travelling. The unattached are favoured on Tuesday evening when things could get quite serious for those looking for commitment.

ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19)

The Moon joins hands with Pluto on Saturday to bring your solar house of marriage and partnership into focus. You might find yourself agreeing with your counterpart in order to maintain the peace but you will have the opportunity to assert yourself on Monday evening, when the Moon squares up to the taciturn Saturn. Tuesday is a good day for making plans to travel. The Moon’s aspect to Neptune will bring romance to the unattached on Thursday.

TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20)

There is much to be achieved on Friday, particularly in the field of business and communication. You are likely to start the weekend with a degree of enthusiasm which will rub off on to other members of your household. Saturday is a good day for entertaining in the home and you are guaranteed success if you are throwing a party. However, Monday’s Moon is in conflict with Saturn, which could mar your marital bliss but Wednesday evening is perfect for reconciliation.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 21)

The time is right for you to let go of the past and move on, providing that you have done everything that you possibly can to finish things properly. Your ruling planet, Mercury, enters the practical sign of Virgo late on Sunday night, so that you are ready for action on Monday morning. Tuesday’s Moon moves into your solar house of partnership, which might assist you if you are looking for love. Wednesday and Thursday are good days for property investment.

CANCER (Jun 22 to Jul 22))

Things might be getting you down and it might be a good idea to consider a holiday or a few days away to break the monotony. Friday’s conjunction between the Sun and Mercury could provide the perfect conditions to sample new pastures. The Moon’s conflicting aspect to Saturn on Monday is likely to slow things down a bit, particularly if you are waiting for news in business. Jupiter’s influence on Wednesday will help you to find a solution to tricky situation.
