Weekly Horoscopes for each Sign are listed below after the overview:
|Sun enters Virgo. Trees are symbolic of health and wellness|
On August 22nd, Mercury and Jupiter meet in Virgo. The Sun also enters Virgo at 12:38 p.m. EDT. This is an excellent time for improving your lifestyle with positive thinking. Wherever the Sun goes, it brings life and new energy. Mercury and Jupiter indicate such positive brilliant ideas, particularly for lifestyle, health, wellness, business and finance. An open mind takes us to all new vistas.
This is a great time to get yourself on track to thinking bigger and better as part of a new, personal routine. Daily Affirmations, philosophical contemplation and learning to grow your skill set are recommended. If you’ve been wanting to play an instrument, or write a book, this is the time to make it happen. This is also great for authors to make connections with editors and publishers.
If you are a business owner, this is the time to get yourself in gear. Accounting, measuring, inventory, and crunching numbers all around can give you good insight into the processes required to make your business grow. Mercury will be retrograde next week, giving you lots of opportunity to admit what hasn’t been working and contemplate changes to procedures. Get down to the details now so you know what you’re working with.
Many of us will find a lifestyle change is in order. If your world has been small, and too focused on the same old routine day in and day out, it’s a good time to expand your experiences so your mind has more options to consider. Think big about what you’d like to do with your life daily. Get outside your bubble and work towards your bigger aims. Brainstorming and working on a vision board is highly recommended.
Take care of your body and mind this week with nutrition, positive intentions and a natural down to earth approach. Sunshine and fresh air is good for the mind and body. It's a great time to hug a tree and get in touch with the earth.
Mars meets with Saturn on August 24th in Sagittarius. If you’ve been going full steam ahead, reaching for your goals, you could get a reality check that puts on the breaks. Your efforts need to be productive and time must be used wisely. If you’re simply enthusiastic and feeling all gung-ho about what’s possible, that’s great, but the energy needs to be directed towards constructive action in order to be worthwhile. Believing you can do something, and actually doing it are two different things.
Your best results will come when you put in the time to do the difficult, challenging things. Whatever holds you back now and causes you to pause will be a catalyst to build stronger, more realistic aims worth going for. It’s a good time to make adjustments to which way you’re heading and making sure you are going after what you really want.
If you’ve been excessively enthusiastic, you may get a bit of a lull now that feels like it’s slowing you down. On the flip side, if you’ve been leaning more towards being down in the dumps, a new boost of energy can wake you up with more stamina to meet challenges now.
The lesson here is that things don’t just get better because you wish they would, you have to take charge to make them better.
Exercise is recommended, especially the type that requires stamina. The process can lead you to a sense of achievement that leaves you feeling accomplished and energized. Sticking it through to the end can bring a greater sense of self respect.
Mars and Neptune are at odd on the 26th. Vague, misdirected focus can lead to poor energy levels. If you have an addiction to inebriating substances, it can zap your energy and motivation.
If you’ve been putting in a lot of effort to improve yourself but are losing faith, it’s best to be compassionate with yourself. It’s not unlikely that emotions will be on high today and could lead to mixed feelings or emotional outbursts. Sometimes pent up energy comes out in different ways. It won’t be surprising for more people to shed tears today.
Heated disagreements are possible on this day, particularly relating to faith and religious beliefs. Be cautious with how you direct your energy, and try to find the compassionate approach to ease tension.
Venus meets with Jupiter on the 27th. This is great for discussions and ideas about love, money and all forms of art and beauty. This can be a great time for a business meeting too. Those in the business or lifestyle fields of health, wellness, beauty, travel, and finances will find today to be especially useful.
This week is all about improving your business and your lifestyle. Start working on setting up a schedule and a daily routine that you know you’ll love. It’s a great week to travel for a change of pace as well.
Wishing you a wonderful week!

You could also find that money matters relating to groups or social activities are not clear and it could ask that you take a much more responsible approach. Overall, due diligence in finances is a priority this week. It’s time to get rid of the vagaries and gain more focus.
Pisces: Your relationships take on an even stronger role in your life. What’s important is that you feel like you’re life is being of service with meaning and purpose.
