Two biggies this week are Mercury in Leo stationing direct and Venus finally leaving mental Gemini for emotional Cancer. Probably the most important thing to keep in mind during the week is life will have a gently elusive feel to it, despite the Sun being in boisterous Leo.
When Mercury stations direct on 7-8 August, it will be forming a waxing inconjunct to ‘pie in the sky’ Neptune in Pisces, encouraging us to have high expectations only marginally connected to reality. The inconjunct will be exact on Saturday, 11 August. Yup! The whole darn week under this influence! Leo and Pisces both are very fond of drama and neither is above stretching the truth to make their point.
Now Venus moving into Cancer will bring some much needed water to our very dry sky and consequently we will gradually begin to be more aware of how we feel, especially in our personal relationships. On Thursday, Venus in Cancer kisses Neptune in Pisces and the rose-colored glasses will come out of hiding once more. Venus has been in Gemini since April and we’ve grown accustomed to expressing our affections with teasing and witty remarks. In Cancer, those expressions of appreciation will tend towards the non-verbal for a change. Water sign folk (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces) will enjoy this shift the most with earth signs (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn) not far behind.
I know it won’t be easy for those of us who are being affected by Mars in Libra’s march towards Saturn this week but nonetheless, there is a calmer feel in the air for everyone else. Life is made up of the small moments after all, so enjoy those. *grin*
In general you are still fired up and going hard, Aries, but you might surprise yourself later in the week by feeling the urge to take a break. Do so if you can because next week could bring some roadblocks and increase your blood pressure.
You will appreciate the slightly calmer atmosphere this week, Taurus. You have been very focused on improving your financial situation in recent months and a chance to stop and smell the roses sounds good. Are you experiencing tensions increasing at work?
I don’t know whether you are going to miss being the belle of the ball, Gemini, or be relieved when the attention shifts away from you. In any case, your greatest challenge is sticking strictly with the facts this week because it will be tempting to embellish them.
Cancer, it is your turn to be on the receiving end of some nice compliments and good will. You may feel like coming out of your shell and being more social this week. Be aware friction may increase on the home front.
Don’t fret, Leo, you are still the center of attention though you might find yourself accepting fewer invitations and choosing to leave the party a little sooner now. I do recommend you not take all those flattering comments at face value as much as you’d like to.
Your willingness to take a more active role in various organizations you belong to may pick up now, Virgo. One thing you need to watch out for is sorting out fact from fiction when it comes to your partner. Nothing major, just err on the side of caution.
Feeling like you’ve got more to do than you have hours in the day, Libra? Even though your energy levels are up, so is the feeling of being blocked. This is likely to peak next week but until then just do what you can and do your best not overload yourself.
You still have the majority of your attention focused on your career, Scorpio, but this week that may change. You do have a romantic side and you may wish to make time to indulge that for a change. Call your lover and plan something fun together.
Are you still having fun gallivanting around, Sagittarius? If so, keep on doing that because this is a great time for you to travel. If your luck holds, you might even be pleasantly surprised by a good return on an investment you made.
Speaking of investments, you need to be very careful with those right now, Capricorn. If you have an investment opportunity you are considering promoting, stay with the facts and only the facts. Don’t promise something you can’t deliver or it may come back to bite you.
Time to scale back the fun and games just a little, Aquarius, and start to think about getting back on a healthy regime. You may have a hard time convincing your partner of this because they aren’t ready to stop playing yet.
Romance, creativity and all types of self-expression begin to call you, Pisces. As long as you remember to not overindulge yourself and take time to do healthy activities regularly, you are in for some fun. Keep one foot on the ground if possible!
