STARGAZING – YOUR WEEKLY FORECAST
Week of Aug. 15th – Aug. 21st, 2011
Mercury is retrograde through August 25th.
The Air Signs
Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Partners are especially sweet and very understanding. This goes for friends and work colleagues, too. You are pleasantly surprised. Your social life is going full steam ahead! This helps you feel much happier and balanced. You get a lot of support, but you need to be careful if you’re negotiating or trying to work out a deal. Mercury is still retrograde, so if you can wait until the end of the month, or after the Labor Day weekend, you’re likely to have greater success. Your career is moving up, motivating you to be more proactive. There are plenty of opportunities to attend all kinds of events, network, and find love. Mercury retrograde usually brings you face to face with people from the past. You may decide to arrange a reunion or you may accidentally meet up with an old flame. Either way, there’s a great opportunity to catch up on news. As Mars aspects Jupiter this week, you may want to make changes to your lifestyle and decide to begin at home.
Your Love Week—Air Signs: If you’re on vacation, in a new social scene, or at the beach, make yourself comfortable. There’s no telling who you will meet. Those dreams and fantasies running wild in your head might actually come true! Be discreet about checking out the possibilities if you’re here with a date. Whether you’re in love or want to impress someone, don’t be surprised to feel your approach change. Even if you’re not exactly in a relationship, it pays to be nice. And if you’re seeking Mr. or Ms. Right, look beneath the cool attitude and physical beauty. Speak up about your needs. It can be a personal moment of truth, and possibly a turn-on for someone who was wondering about you, and wants to get to know you better. Recognize the difference between who is really you and what baggage you carry from your last relationship. Discover the qualities that will matter most in the long run. Friends are likely to comment on the new you. You’re happier because you’re free to express your feelings any way you want.
The Fire Signs
Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
You’re feeling creative, sociable, and eager to negotiate and share ideas and feelings, Fire Signs. Romance is never very far from your mind as you navigate your way through the days ahead. You’re eager to expand and gain knowledge, whether you do this by traveling to other places or studying. As you explore new horizons, you draw love and romance your way. You may even meet one of your former flames while walking down a street somewhere exotic. Mars makes a special aspect to Jupiter, which suggests that you may be offered a lucrative deal around the 18th. Watch for this and be sure to get everything in writing. Be careful of mixed messages, though, whether this applies to business or romance. You may end up doing or saying the wrong thing when it’s very important to be exact. A powerful transit on August 18th encourages you to listen to your intuition and follow that hunch.
Your Love Week—Fire Signs: Doubts and fears are natural at the beginning of a new relationship. When you’re interested in someone, meet halfway instead of making him or her do all the work. You will both feel more comfortable of what might happen. Whether or not this gets you exactly what you want, just know that it’s good enough for now. If everything doesn’t work out, regrets may not linger as long. When feelings intensify, maybe you should act. Show someone what he or she means to you. Hooking up often creates social ripples or jealousy. If you’re not ready to be the talk of the town, keep things quiet until you are sure of how this is going. Knowing who you are and what you want is sure to make you more desirable. After all, who could resist that kind of positive confidence? Let your friend share with you or even help with planning and organizing your life. This doesn’t have to be a promise, although it’s a welcome kind of sharing. This could be the week when your love life turns around, Fire Signs.
The Water Signs
Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
Your dreams will be more powerful now that Neptune has moved back into Aquarius, Water Signs. Keep note of them, as they will contain powerful guidance. Use this opportunity while you seem to be gaining in popularity to make your mark on the world. You seem to be attracting a lot of attention already so use this to your advantage. You need to watch when Mercury is retrograde, because you may accidentally give out wrong signals and get the kind of publicity you don’t want. You’re also eager to look after your health, but you may be indulging more than usual. If you’re stressed, you may be eating comfort foods. Mercury retrograde brings frustration and delays, which could account for your feelings. Make time to relax deeply and pamper yourself. A calm, peaceful mind is the key to satisfaction. You’re also eager to learn and explore. Think of studying or traveling. It’s time to get out of your rut and discover new worlds.
Your Love Week—Water Signs: It’s your week to cross the threshold between dreaming and doing. That special someone deserves a clear message about what you want. But there’s no guarantee how he or she will respond, so be ready to improvise instead of sticking to an imaginary script. When you’re feeling easy with someone, it could be either friendship or love. Maybe you will assume things and take a few liberties. But if the green light turns red, be good and stop. When you’re trying to win that special person’s heart, less can be more. Restraint shows respect if it’s already obvious how you feel. Go out together and watch how other couples react with each other. Even if you’re not yet a couple, you can get a charge from imagining you already are. The so-called rules of dating are different for everyone. See whether being cool heats things up. And if that fails, at least the right person will find you charming when you get heated up!
The Earth Signs
Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn

Your Love Week—Earth Signs: Don’t fight the feeling Earth Signs. Don’t argue when conditions are just right for falling in love. Be charming and prepare to be charmed. If you’ve already shared your relevant histories, there’s no reason to bring up the past again. Suddenly you’re love-struck, or your date looks at you with new eyes. Could this be the one? Are you standing at the edge of your Soul Mate relationship? Don’t spoil the mood with questions. While you can’t stop thinking about commitment, you don’t have to voice or act on those thoughts. Bite your tongue if you suspect that talking about the future could kill the mood. Romance happens outside of time. You’re doing OK if the other person senses and respects that you’re holding something back. Just enjoy the moment and see where it leads. No one is asking for anything more than that. If you’re still together in mid-September, then it might be time to start making assumptions. Just don’t go there before the time is right.
