Weekly Horoscopes from media astrologer Joanne Madeline MooreWeekly Horoscopes August 20-26

Weekly Horoscopes – Thank goodness Mercury is now direct! But remember Mars is still retrograde until August 27. Which is particularly frustrating for Aries (ruled by Mars) and Capricorns (Mars is reversing through Capricorn). So the major prerequisite for this week is still plenty of patience. Next Sunday’s Full Moon in Pisces is wonderful for creative inspiration, spiritual pursuits and compassionate acts of kindness. Joanne x

ARIES [March 21-April 20]

With Mercury now direct in your creativity zone, make sure you capitalize on your fiery creative talents. But don’t power ahead with actual projects until next week, when Mars (your ruler) finally moves forwards. You can easily become totally self-absorbed with your ideas, moods, dreams and daily dramas. But, with the Full Moon and Neptune highlighting your humanitarian side, it’s a wonderful weekend to re-connect with others, roll up your sleeves, and help those around you.

TAURUS [April 21-May 21]

Now that Mercury is moving forwards again, a frustrating family matter should gradually get better. Avoid being a stubborn Bull though! You’ll find the more flexible and understanding you are, the more quickly things will improve. Then the weekend Grand Earth Trine and Full Moon bring friendship, your peer group and your social circle into firm focus. So think about how you can network with sympatico people in more innovative, creative and productive ways.

GEMINI [May 22-June 21]

Hallelujah and praise the stars! After a long and exceedingly exasperating three weeks, Mercury (your patron planet) is finally moving forwards. So your natural talent for endless questioning, constant chatter and continual movement will start returning in spades. As writer (and birthday great) Dorothy Parker observed “The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity.” So put your mercurial mind to work with a stimulating new job, project or activity ASAP.

CANCER [June 22-July 23]

Mercury is now direct but disruptive Mars is still reversing through your relationship zone. So communicating with loved ones will continue to be frustrating until next week. You’ve certainly got inspiring aspirations for the future. But don’t commit to an ambitious new plan unless you’re sure you have the time, energy and motivation to follow through on your well-meant intentions. Especially involving a joint venture, a group endeavor or a community project.

LEO [July 24-Aug 23]

Thank goodness Mercury is finally moving forwards in your sign! So communication should start to improve and projects that have been delayed will receive a welcome nudge. But personal energy levels won’t pick up until next week, when Mars moves forwards in your wellbeing zone. The weekend looks wonderful, as the Sun (your power planet) trines Uranus and Saturn. Which will boost your Cat charisma and heighten your creative touch and/or financial flair.

VIRGO [Aug 24-Sep 23]

Over the last three weeks, many Virgos have been in hermit mode. You’re starting to feel more sociable but things won’t really pick up until next week, when motivation planet Mars moves forwards in your social and entertainment zone. Under the influence of the Full Moon, the weekend is a wonderful time to start reconnecting (in meaningful ways) with family and friends. Plus – under the influence of the Grand Earth Trine – it’s also a fortuitous time to formulate a practical new plan.

LIBRA [Sep 24-Oct 23]

Communication should gradually improve, as Mercury moves forwards in your friendship and networking zone. So do all you can to smooth over disagreements and get things moving in a positive direction. The Full Moon highlights your health and wellbeing zone. So choose an exercise routine that you really enjoy. Be inspired by actress Blake Lively (who turns 31 on Saturday). “I really don’t like the gym. I like experiences. So I take any chance to ride a bicycle or go on a hike.”

SCORPIO [Oct 24-Nov 22]

Don’t waste precious time worrying, especially at work. Mercury is direct so connect with colleagues, tell them what’s on your mind, and keep them up-to-date with your plans. The weekend Full Moon (and Grand Earth Trine) encourages you to look at a relationship with a child, lover or friend in a perceptive new light. If you keep doing what you’re doing, you’ll just keep getting what you’re getting! So perhaps it’s time to re-set boundaries and road-test some creative new strategies?

SAGITTARIUS [Nov 23-Dec 21]

Adventurous Archers … it’s time to start planning your next holiday, as Mercury is now moving forwards in your travel zone. Exotic destinations with colorful cultures will appeal to your restless gypsy gene. Family matters take center stage on the weekend, when the Full Moon shines a bright spotlight on a domestic drama. Avoid being superficial and slap-dash. Smart Sagittarians will look for an innovative approach that leads to a satisfactory long-term solution.

CAPRICORN [Dec 22-Jan 20]

With Mercury now direct, plus the Full Moon activating your conversation and international zones, it’s time to link up with people from all over the place. Then the weekend Sun/Uranus/Saturn Grand Earth Trine provides a golden opportunity for you to influence people in a positive and productive fashion (both in person and online). Which is what Capricorns can do so well! But Mars continues to reverse through your sign until August 27, so you’ll still have to be extra patient.

AQUARIUS [Jan 21-Feb 19]

Has a relationship been rather stressful over the last three weeks? With Mercury moving forwards, things are set to improve as you work together to achieve a win-win outcome. However, the weekend is not a good time to go on a shopping spree or lend money to others. You’re liable to make financial decisions based on your emotions, which will fluctuate wildly under the full moonbeams. The Grand Earth Trine encourages you to take an unusually sensible and steady approach.

PISCES [Feb 20-March 20]

Mercury is now moving forwards in your daily routine zone. So the pace of life will gradually pick up, and communicating with other people will progressively improve. Then the Full Moon lights up your sign on the weekend. So it’s the perfect time to be the most confident, creative, perceptive and persuasive Piscean you can possibly be. As American actress (and birthday babe) Blake Lively wisely observes “The most beautiful thing you can wear is confidence.”

Last Weeks Horoscopes - August 13-19

KICKASS ARIES [March 21-April 20]

Dynamic Mars (your boss planet) reverses through your career zone until August 27. So the next two weeks is not an ideal time to kick-start a promotion, initiate a work project or look for a new job. If you do, then expect plenty of annoying delays and frustrations. On the weekend, Neptune and Jupiter stimulate your shared resources zone. So, the more creatively and generously you share financial ideas and collaborate with others, the more successful you’ll be in the foreseeable future.

TENACIOUS TAURUS [April 21-May 21]

Action-planet Mars is retrograde until August 27. So slow down and reflect on where you’re going, and where you’ve been. When it comes to a future holiday, be patient and plan carefully. On the weekend, lucky Jupiter and mystical Neptune activate your partnership zone. So an important relationship is set to improve in leaps and bounds. Single Bulls – if you trust your instincts and follow your intuition, then it will (eventually) lead you to your celestial soul mate.

GUNG-HO GEMINI [May 22-June 21]

Mars reverses into your shared finances zone. So the next two weeks is not a good time to lend cash, borrow money or initiate a joint financial partnership. Instead, be patient and wait until after August 27, when Mars finally turns direct. On the weekend Jupiter and Neptune stimulate your wellbeing and life direction zones. So aim high as you strive to be the healthiest and fittest person you can possibly be. No lame excuses and empty promises. Get your Gemini body moving ASAP!

CREATIVE CANCER [June 22-July 23]

Relationships will be challenging, as people find it difficult to express themselves directly. Avoid taking it personally! Be inspired by birthday great, actress Halle Berry. “Don’t take yourself too seriously. Know when to laugh at yourself, and find a way to laugh at obstacles that inevitably present themselves.” Jupiter and Neptune activate your self-expression and visionary zones. So connect with your inner muse, as you express yourself in increasingly colorful and creative ways.

LUCKY LEO [July 24-Aug 23]

Lions love to leap at life with fiery relish! But - when it comes to your daily routine - slow and steady wins the race this week as Mercury and Mars continue their retrograde journeys. Motivation and energy levels will also be low so plan accordingly. With Jupiter and Neptune highlighting your home zone on the weekend, there is much love and happiness to be experienced from improved relationships with your extended family. Compassion and connection are the keys.

VERSATILE VIRGO [Aug 24-Sep 23]

This week (with Mars and Mercury both retrograde) a relationship with a child, teenager, lover or close friend will be confusing and frustrating. The best way to handle the situation is with plenty of patience and unlimited understanding. On the weekend, Neptune and Jupiter encourage you to contribute your versatile Virgo talents to a worthy cause within your local neighborhood. If you do, then satisfying community connections and positive friendships will develop.

LOVABLE LIBRA [Sep 24-Oct 23]

With reactive Mars reversing through your domestic zone, tread gingerly with a grumpy house-mate or a frustrated family member. You’ll find the more patient and diplomatic you are, the less stressful the next two weeks will be. Prosperity planet Jupiter and inspiration planet Neptune fire up your finance and work zones on the weekend. So make it a priority to find creative ways to boost cash flow. If you love what you do, then inner and outer riches will follow.

PASSIONATE SCORPIO [Oct 24-Nov 22]

Be careful when talking and driving over the next two weeks, as Mars reverses through your conversation and transport zone. Otherwise you could find yourself smack bang in the middle of an argument or accident! Bountiful Jupiter is visiting your sign until November 8 (and it won’t be back there for nearly 12 years). So make sure you capitalize on any awesome opportunities that come your way. Lucky breaks that appear now will come to fruition from September onwards.

SASSY SAGITTARIUS [Nov 23-Dec 21]

Are you living in financial fairy-land? With Mars reversing into your money zone, you’re in the mood to spend up a storm. But make sure your personal finances are solid before you commit to a major purchase. And are you feeling stressed? On the weekend Neptune and Jupiter stimulate your spirituality zone. So there is much inner peace to be found via activities like meditation, contemplation, yoga or tai chi as you slow down, calm down, and listen to the wise guidance from within.

CLEVER CAPRICORN [Dec 22-Jan 20]

Mighty Mars (planet of action and motivation) is reversing through your sign until August 27. So it’s time for active and ambitious Capricorns to pace yourself, as some plans backfire and confidence levels are lower than usual. You could also question your current trajectory and look to others for feedback and approval. Don’t overdo it though! As birthday great Madonna observes “If your joy is derived from what others think of you, then you’re going to be disappointed.”

AVANT-GARDE AQUARIUS [Jan 21-Feb 19]

Aquarians usually love to party! But avoid planning too many social activities over the next two weeks. With Mars reversing through your solitude zone, rest and relaxation are just what the doctor ordered. Neptune and Jupiter activate your career and money zones on the weekend. So there is the potential for fabulous professional and financial opportunities to manifest in the future. But you must have the confidence and patience to follow your true destiny, one steady step at a time.

PERCEPTIVE PISCES [Feb 20-March 20]

This week the celestial message for smart Pisceans is patience. If you look to the future with a positive attitude, then fabulous opportunities will manifest … eventually. But you must be extra patient over the next two weeks, as retrograde Mars slows things down. Jupiter and Neptune both activate your adventure and travel zone on the weekend. So make sure you take the time to plan and book (and save for) an exciting dream escapade sometime from September onwards.
