Astrology by Lisa Stardust
The week ahead offers us a gentle chance to change and heal, if we are open to it and ready for growth. Mercury, who’s in Virgo, connects with Pluto, who’s retrograde in Capricorn, on August 26. Words have meaning and power, use them wisely on the 26th. The Virgo Sun squares off with the Nodes of Destiny on August 29, giving us the chance to make emotional decisions that will augment our future forever. The Last Quarter Moon occurs on August 30 in Gemini, the same day that Mercury (who is the planetary ruler of the Moon) enters Libra. This will create a more peaceful and chill atmosphere, as we will be able to have discussions and make decisions wisely and with care.
When you are on the path of transformation, it’s natural to outgrow and let go of many things you’ve been holding onto from the past. In order to evolve, you have to do a complete emotional overhaul. Don’t fear the change, it will feel extremely freeing as you move forward.
Feel yourself this week, Taurus. Focus and embrace all of your amazing attributes. Let them be known to the world. It’s a great time to socialize, create, and start showing off your artistry to others. People will be impressed and marvel at your success, as well as your many talents.
Although you've been through quite a bit lately, you'll find a softness and grounding energy in the week ahead. Your personal life is flowing seamlessly, allowing you to be productive in the face of a lot of change. Just keep trekking along. You are on the way to great things.
This week, you are opting to take a step back and keep your feelings to yourself in order to preserve and safeguard your heart from the harsh criticisms of others. Doing so will allow you to avoid confrontation and drama while you heal and reflect upon your emotions with TLC.
You are putting a lot of pressure on yourself thinking about matters that aren’t in your control, when in reality you should be living in the moment and thinking about the present. Stop worrying about the future, it hasn’t happened yet. You can create the reality you want for yourself.
This is an ideal week for goal and intention setting. Rather than trying to carry out old ideas, you should start manifesting new visions that will help you create a better future. You’ll be able to make these dreams a reality because they align with your new views and sentiments.
If there is a project that you would like to take on or a creative endeavor that sounds fulfilling, then this week is an ideal time to start shifting your energy towards it. With the right planning, you’ll be able to tackle everything you need to learn and then some.
Inner tensions are building up with an ongoing personal financial situation. The stress around money and valuables takes center stage, making your anxiety rise. A creative outlet will help you burn off the energy that is stressing you out, as it will allow you to release the negativity brewing within.
As pressure grows to establish yourself amongst your peers and larger community, you’ll find time to pause today as you begin to re-examine your desires. Is the community you’re engaging with going to support you? Are there people around you who don’t have your best interests at heart?
Rather than worry about which should’ve, could’ve, and would’ve been, try focusing on the present. The moment you free your mind and let yourself just be, you will feel at peace with yourself and the world around you. This will create a calming and relaxing vibe for the days ahead.
Oftentimes, you can get emotionally stuck in believing that the only way of thinking is yours. If you can get off your fanatical soapbox, you’ll find that the world is full of possibilities. Open your mind to seeing the perspectives of others. It may change your philosophy in the future.
Sweet and romantic sentiments are being felt in your heart throughout the week, giving you more excitement than you've had in a while. Use this week’s energy to relax and catch up with those you care about. Nourish your heart as much as you can. After all, you deserve it.
