The Sun joins Mercury and Mars in Virgo (the sign that rules food, fitness, herbs, habits and healing) in your wellbeing zone. So it’s a good week to focus on improving your physical and mental health via a nutritious diet, regular exercise, a daily relaxation routine and close connections with loved ones. A romantic relationship or a burgeoning friendship could also move to the next level, as Venus and Saturn solidify your feelings and strengthen the karmic ties between the two of you.
Dependable Bulls can be strong, sexy, passionate, powerful, resilient and resourceful. You’re also pretty good at holding onto grudges, but then the only person who ends up being hurt is actually you. So make it a priority to let go, forgive and forget, especially when Venus (your patron planet) trines Saturn on Monday. Your motto for the moment is from birthday great, legendary nun and missionary Mother Teresa, “If we really want to love we must learn how to forgive.”
Mercury, Pluto and Jupiter rev up your Gemini curiosity and propel you into a brand new adventure. But you could encounter roadblocks along the way, as serious Saturn stymies your progress. Hasty actions and half-baked plans will only lead to long-term frustrations. Your full of fabulous ideas but make sure you can differentiate between fact and fantasy. If you balance dynamic action with a dose of discipline and a spoonful of reality, then you’ll have a productive week.
Courtesy of the Sun, Mercury and Mars, the buzz word this week is communication. Your Crab curiosity is piqued, and you’re keen to connect and converse with a wide range of stimulating people (in person and online) especially within your local community. Monday is good for cementing a long-term relationship as you help your relative, partner or friend to achieve their personal best. Then Thursday favours neighbourhood passion projects and clever joint ventures.
With taskmaster Saturn transiting through your partnership zone, you’re being reminded that relationships require hard work, 24/7. “Love doesn’t just sit there like a stone. It has to be made like bread, remade all the time, made new.” (Ursula Le Guin). Venus and Saturn also highlight positive connections with like-minded people in your neighbourhood. The more time and effort you put into projects within your local community, the more your personal satisfaction will grow.
The Sun, Mercury and Mars are moving through your sign, so it’s time to be the efficient and engaging Virgo you were born to be. Confidence is the rocket fuel that will take you where you want to go. But don’t just focus on facts, figures and the minutiae of daily life. Strive to expand your creative horizons as you do your best to make the world a better and more beautiful place. Be inspired by birthday great Mother Teresa “The world is hungry not only for food, but also for beauty.”
With the Sun, Mercury and Mars stimulating your self-sabotage zone, are you being your own worst enemy? Is the only person undermining your efforts actually you? Stop being an over-accommodating Libra who’s trying to please everyone and instead, start focusing on your future health, wealth and happiness. So your mantra for the week is from birthday great, singer-songwriter Florence Welch, “You should have high expectations for yourself, and others should come second.”
Put on your problem-solving hat Scorpio! On Monday, Venus and Saturn stimulate your desire to help a friend or family member in a practical and hands-on way. Then – on Thursday – Mercury and Pluto help you resolve an issue (at home or within your local community) in a strategic and satisfying way. So your motto for the moment is from Mother Teresa (who was born on August 26, 1910), “Love begins by taking care of the closest ones – the ones at home.”
The Sun, Mercury and Mars boost productivity and activate your aspirational side. So it’s a good week to dream big dreams and take plenty of positive action. Even in tough times – nothing ventured; nothing gained. Be inspired by Swedish movie star Ingrid Bergman (who was born on August 29, 1917) “I don’t regret a thing I’ve done. I only regret the things I didn’t do.” But resist the temptation to over-promise and then under-deliver, especially at work. Keep it real Sagittarius!
With the planets activating your work, business, travel and aspirations zones, it’s time to dream big dreams for the future. They won’t materialise overnight so you need to be extremely patient and persistent. Then – when the right moment manifests further down the track – you’ll be ready, willing and able to take flight. Be inspired by birthday great, singer- songwriter Florence Welch, “I like the idea of taking off like a bird.” A well devised plan leads to success on Monday.
Have you been questioning your Aquarian purpose in life? Or do you feel as if you’ve got the worries of the world on your shoulders? Take a step back and view things from a much wider perspective. Doing good deeds will leave you with a warm inner glow. So think up some dynamic ways that you can help those who are less fortunate – whether locally, nationally or internationally. As Yoko Ono (a fellow Aquarius) observes, “Helping yourself is connected with helping others.”
Being kind of heart and doing good deeds are highlighted this week as Venus, Saturn and Jupiter stimulate your humanitarian streak. So it’s a good time to express your Good Samaritan side as you nurse a family member, support a friend in need, do some volunteer work or lend a helping hand in your local community. Be inspired by birthday great, legendary nun and missionary Mother Teresa, “It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.”
