Libra Weekly Horoscopes for August 3, 2013

Leo

Celebrate Lammas

© ashley simeone

A potent Leo New Moon, Jupiter in Cancer exactly opposing Pluto in Capricorn and Mercury finally leaving Cancer for Leo are the big events this week.

Where the Leo New Moon falls in your chart has something to say about what calls out for a fresh perspective and may hold the key to a potential new beginning. If we’re lucky, we’ll be able to recognize and take advantage of an opportunity to make positive change.

The next two weeks between the New Moon and the second Full Moon in Aquarius will be overshadowed by Jupiter in Cancer taking its turn completing a T-Square with Uranus and Pluto. In my opinion Jupiter and Pluto represent those forces dedicated to preserving their idea of what constitutes security, especially related to family. Cancer and Capricorn are both deeply committed to understanding our traditions and how those can be integrated into our lives. They value a solid foundation based on what has worked effectively over time. This is their week for making their case as to why they are right. We’ll get to Uranus’s side of the story in a couple of weeks.

Mercury FINALLY leaves Cancer on Thursday and bursts into fiery Leo. Mercury in Leo is brash, dramatic and loud. Fire signs are going to love this change as are air signs, though to a lesser degree. People in general may be more willing to speak up for themselves and be more social. Mercury makes a couple of less than happy aspects on the weekend. First is an inconjunct to Neptune in Pisces and then Saturn in Scorpio shuts Mercury down via a square. Not a good time to embellish the truth to make a point . . . it will almost certainly not end well.

Those with personal planets and Angles at 9° in the cardinal signs will feel the Jupiter-Pluto opposition the strongest. Not a restful time for Aries and Libra because they are most likely to feel out of step with the forces represented by the opposition. Libra is currently handicapped by the lack of air in the sky whilst Aries has more support with three planets in fire.

Tensions continue to run high so be careful out there.

So what are you going to listen to this week, Aries? Your inner child or your inner parent? The thing is your choice may set the tone for the next couple of weeks and you will live with the consequences. Up to you!

Others may be feeling beset but you, Taurus, are probably managing to stay cool, calm and collected. One thing you might be contemplating is making some changes to your home . . . very carefully considered of course! By the way, what you don’t know CAN hurt you.

If you are blessed with a surge of inspiration now, Gemini, please use it wisely in the weeks ahead, especially if you are in the processing of investigating your financial situation. Watch out for foggy thinking on the weekend, all right?!

At the moment you may be enjoying a very nice sense of support from your partner, Cancer, whether it is business or personal. Fracture lines might begin to appear in the near future where your career is concerned. Possible cash flow improvement ahead.

The Sun is shining on you now, Leo, and it feels good. Being the center of attention is almost always your favorite place to be, so make the most of it. Some of you may opt for a new and exciting look in the days ahead.

If some opportunities come your way to indulge your inner child, Virgo, please take the time to do so. You are often better at being the responsible party and probably don’t take enough play time. Part of you may wish to go on retreat to recharge..

As much as you would love to get together with your friends this week, Libra, you may be reminded in no uncertain terms of your responsibilities to your family and your employer. If you do want “me” time, figure out a work around where everyone wins.

There is plenty of potential out there for kick-starting your career, Scorpio, and some of the most innovative ideas may come from those you work with on a daily basis. Look into opportunities for advanced studies as those may prove helpful too.

The travel bug could bite you hard now, Sagittarius, but unless you are able to get your financial house in order, you might have to come up with some extremely creative ways to indulge your need to see new places. I wish you luck!

Even though things seem to be under control in your life and relationships, Capricorn, please resist the urge to micromanage. Giving your partner room to breathe and grow is very important to maintaining the status quo. Not the best weekend to socialize with friends.

Aquarius, this week may bring some very positive new developments in your one-on-one relationships. If you have been considering forming a business partnership, things may fall into place in short order. Tread carefully over the next week or so where coworkers are concerned.

Now is a great time for you to make take steps to improve your health and well-being, Pisces. You have momentum going for you now to help you break free of old bad habits. Don’t get discouraged if you back-slide over the weekend.

If you know your Rising sign, read the horoscope for it too. :D

      Hi acquagal!

      what degree will the new moon be in leo? my 8th house cusp is 2 degrees leo.

      It is 14° Leo so it is well into your 8th house.

      xoxo diane~

    New moon in Leo is falling on my 7th/8th house cusp. I feel obsessed about finding a partner :) But I also need a job… I need some guidance on how to move forward. Any thoughts?

      Hi Rekha,

      If the New Moon was on the cusp of your 7th-8th houses, does that mean the current Jupiter-Pluto opposition is in your 1st-7th houses (with Pluto in your first)? If so, that is what is probably triggering the need for a partner. :) For attracting a job, Venus in Libra crossing your MC/10th house may help you out.

      xoxoxo diane~

        Thanks Diane. Actually at present Mars is in my 7th house and that might be triggering the intensity. Jupiter is in my 6th house and will move into 7th in a few months. Currently Pluto is in my 12th and Uranus is conjunct the cusp of the 4th house and so I do not feel particularly happy at home. Actually the April 25th lunar eclipse had a rather debilitating effect on me personally. I am hoping that its effects will soon start to fade away. I am taking it one day at a time. Yes Venus is the ruler of my 10th house…thanks for offering that insight.
