The Air Signs
Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
This is the week to dream big dreams. Your ability to visualize your future goals and plans is awesome, Air Signs, as you are innately far sighted. Get ready for a blast of fresh air to waft through your planetary window. You adore change. This week your aptitude for dreaming big dreams will heat up considerably, starting on Tuesday as wise Mercury enters clever Libra. The Universe is sending you a big gift. Your sense of idealism will increase quite a bit, as will your skill for solving problems, both your own and the dilemmas of those you know. You may even come up with blueprint for a new utopian society, one that will benefit everyone you share planet Earth with! Your penchant for socialization will accelerate and you may find yourself so inundated with invitations and requests for your presence that you’ll need to put some of your normal duties on hold. Hopefully, you have enough clothes so you can forgo doing your laundry for a bit, since your time and attention will be devoted to having a good time mingling with your friends. Have fun! You are asked to aid an associate who is ill on Wednesday, as Mars in Cancer opposes Pluto. It’s possible that you will be roped into caring for your associate’s pets for a while, and yes, this new encumbrance will eat into your time and schedule more than you initially anticipate! You love your freedom, but you may spend the rest of the week running back and forth to your residence to be sure your friend’s dog or cat is fed, walked, and kept company! After being on call 24/7, you may put your own desire for a four-legged friend on hold. Your needs and wants may shift a bit over the weekend as the Moon in serious Capricorn opposes Mars in Cancer. You may have an eye-opening experience that will cause you to sit down and go over your priorities. Once that happens, you’ll make an effort to be sure that you focus your considerable energy and drive on the people, places, and situations that matter to you and make you happy.
Your Love Week – Air Signs:
This week, enjoy the blush on your cheeks whenever she or he enters the room—it’s innocent! It’s a reminder that we are beings of love. Whether or not anything materializes, it’s still imperative to feeling alive. And wow! Does it ever feel good, Air Signs! Reconsider your perspective. It will work. A loved one really needs you to be open to suggestion, this week, especially. You’ve been a bit distant as of late and he or she has noticed, so snap out of it! Passionate evenings abound this week if you get your head out of the clouds. No need to look any further; what you’re dreaming about is right in front of you, so open your eyes, and then, open your arms and your heart.
Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
You love excitement and the great outdoors, Fire Signs, and roaming the world is second nature to you. This week your sense of wanderlust will accelerate. You may find it impossible to sit down and concentrate on your daily activities. Instead, your thoughts will be off in the clouds as you visualize all the exciting places you want to go and interesting people you want to meet. If you can’t afford to take an exotic vacation right now, make sure you indulge in daytrips to sites you enjoy. Try to include at least one excursion to a locale that you haven’t visited, even if it’s in an area near you. You’re bursting with enthusiasm for life. You always attract a lot of attention everywhere you go, and yes, you were born to be in the spotlight. This week you’ll find yourself garnering more than your fair share of adulation You Fire Signs always attract a lot of attention everywhere you go, and yes, you were born to be in the spotlight. This week you’ll find yourself garnering more than your fair share of adulation. You’ll project a very pleasing aura to others and your presence will be requested at quite a few notable events. You could become a celebrity if you aren’t already a noted personality in your city or state! If you want to tweak your appearance a bit, this is a great time to undergo a makeover and dramatically revise your hair and wardrobe. You know that you were born to be center stage. You may decide to lose some weight by taking up a new sport on Friday as the Moon in Sagittarius sextiles lucky Jupiter in Aquarius. Consider asking a family member, friend, or acquaintance to join you in your leisure pursuit so you can both share the experience. After all, the more the merrier! Remember that you don’t need to explain yourself to anyone on Friday as the Moon in Sagittarius squares stern Saturn in Virgo. Someone who has a lot of influence in a community organization you are a part of may call into question your actions and possibly even your belief system. It’s OK to politely tell this person to mind his or her own business.
Your Love Week – Fire Signs:
This week you must write down any archetypal imagery that floods your mind during the night. Yes—it’s true! the Universe is preparing you for someone to enter your love life. Dream symbolism may give you some insight into this person and their intent with you. Your subconscious is trying to prepare you for this relationship. If you’re single, go away with some friends. Partnership is in your cards this week. You’ll feel as light and airy as a feather – literally! And someone is desperately trying to get your attention, so it’s time to ground yourself in the company of some good friends. If you don’t, you may miss a love opportunity that could leave you guessing, but will certainly leave you in a better state than before.
Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
Prepare to experience some zigzagging emotions this week, Water Signs. Silence is golden this week, so keep that in mind as you go about your daily activities. You are fluid Water element Zodiac Signs, and your intuition always guides you. However, this week your sixth sense will be switched off, so you need to think first and speak later. You’re going to rock and roll this week, so get out your headphones and start dancing to the music the cosmos is playing for you! On Tuesday dynamic and assertive Mars enters Cancer, and your attitude will undergo a bit of a transformation. Yes, you’re nice, but perhaps you’re a little too nice and you let others take advantage of you. Wednesday confrontational Mars in Cancer opposes powerful Pluto in Capricorn, and you’ll find yourself engaged in a tussle with someone you consider a close associate. This person may take offense to something you say, and you’ll have to apologize to him or her even if you did not intend any slight to your associate. Of course, if you feel you are in the right, and your friend is being difficult, then don’t say you are sorry! Keep in mind that you may end up on the outs with this person for quite a while. Your emotions will zigzag during most of the week, and on Saturday, as the Moon in fiery Sagittarius squares erratic and unpredictable Uranus in Pisces, you will not be sure which end is up in your life! It’s OK to help out your friends and family, but you shouldn’t have to baby-sit every single Saturday night for a relative or do another’s laundry week in and week out. Now you’ll discover that it’s OK to say no occasionally, especially if you have pressing needs of your own to attend to! Your health might warrant a second glance on Thursday as the Moon in Sagittarius squares the Sun in Virgo. Consider scheduling a checkup for your medical and dental needs to be sure that all systems are in good working order. Don’t be afraid to tell your doctor or dentist how you really feel, because early detection of physical ailments is your best medical defense and course of action. Use the weekend to slow down and regroup as much as possible.
Your Love Week – Water Signs:
You need some sort of structure when it comes to affairs of the heart, Water Signs, and the theme of the week is, that’s what seems to be coming to fruition. Situations will be viewed as either good or bad, depending on your perspective. What they have in common is prospective love—perhaps not lasting relationships, but definitely passionate ones. Get off your bum and plan an end-of-summer escape. Even if you can only manage a two-day getaway, it will refresh your spirits. Everyone is out of town now, so this is the perfect week to do it. What could be better for any relationship than to cozy up away from home for a night or two? Your partner will certainly appreciate the attention. And sometimes that’s all that’s needed.
Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn
Hold on to your patience and stamina, Earth Signs, because you’re going to need to draw on your inner strength and fortitude this week. Don’t worry; you can deal with any challenge that comes your way. Watch how self-confident you become this week! You’re a strong soul, but you often take a back seat to others. At times you lack faith in yourself, and that’s not good. On Wednesday lovely Venus, enters flamboyant, bold, and brave Leo, and your ability to think big, live large, and toot your own horn will accelerate. You may decide to jazz up your appearance a bit, and you won’t be afraid to take pride in your talents and gifts. Now you’ll be able to muster the strength to deal with your complex life issues and dilemmas. Remember, it’s OK to like yourself and be your own best friend. Also on Wednesday volatile Mars in Cancer opposes powerful Pluto in Capricorn and you’ll engage in a power struggle with an influential person in your life. It’s also possible that you’ll be fighting with yourself on an important matter. Make sure that you don’t get so distracted by your dilemma that you forget to pay attention to where you are and whom you’re with. This is a good week to exercise extra caution when you’re in any unfamiliar areas. You won’t hesitate to speak up on an issue that’s important to you on Thursday as the Moon in blunt Sagittarius is quincunx assertive Mars in Cancer. You might sugarcoat your response to someone you think is taking advantage of you, but you’ll still address the matter. This weekend you’ll initiate communication with school friends you’d lost contact with. A good friend comes to your rescue on Sunday and lures you away from your normal household routine. The Moon in Capricorn trines the radiant Sun in helpful Virgo and your associate will see to it that you have a day of fun and amusement. You may just decide on your own to take off for a leisurely walk through the mall or spend some time gardening.
Your Love Week – Earth Signs:
Love is all about patience and compromise, and these are difficult things to learn – and understandably! But this week it’s imperative that you give these things your all. Your love interest is absolutely worth the deep breath. Do you feel that? What does it feel like? Are there butterflies in your tummy? No, those aren’t hunger rumblings. You officially have a crush, and what could be sweeter than that? This week your creativity abounds, and that goes for your love life, too. Enjoy the star alignment and rekindle your passion. This will be a week to explore new territory, whether in your present relationship or if you’re enjoying a crush. It’s the perfect time for you to venture into new places, meet new people, and try new things to spark romance.
