Horoscope for the week beginning August 12

Michael OConnorBy Michael O’Connor

Tip of the Week

Next week’s Full Moon in Aquarius on August 18 is a Lunar Eclipse. Technically, it is a ‘Penumbral’ eclipse.

Visible here in the America’s both North and South and reaching as far east Japan and Korea, enthusiasts will gather to see it and some will engage in ritual and ceremony.

The Aquarian influence may activate a measure of awakening in the world. This is where awareness and our free will choice come to the fore. It is worth noting that it is also in Aquarius in the Sidereal Zodiac as well as the Tropical. Uranus is the ruling planet for Aquarius and is currently in Aries so its influence is playing a leading role.

There is a healing theme within this energy pattern, which can almost be described as surgical. Although air sign full moons are often more neutral in effect, this one is an exception and will fuel fire and all the heat, passion and drama that accompanies it.

August 12 – 18

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)

Your focus has been steadily shifting from play to work. This work may include a new level of focus upon health. Once way or another you want to make improvements. Now your resolve is getting stronger. This will be especially evident this week. It could lead you to assertively break through any and all obstacles.

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 21)

horotaurusWith each new day you may wonder who you are now. The good news is that you probably like who and what you are becoming. Perhaps it is the real you or maybe it can be described as a clear fulfillment of destiny. Your confidences are steadily rising matched only by the inspiration to be in alignment with what makes you feel special.

Gemini (May 21 – June 21)

A steady shift of your focus to home and family interests and concerns continues. Yet, some of your focus is upon larger worldly affairs especially with respect to how these may have influence on your personal life. Creative thoughts about how you can improve the quality of your life and perhaps earn more money are featured.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

A flood of new thoughts and ideas are overflowing through your mind. These are linked to investments you want and perhaps need to make. The big question is how to get the most and the best but spending the least. This timeless theme is extra important now because you have several fronts to consider.

horoLeoLeo (July 22 – Aug 23)

Entering new territory continues to feel right and necessary. You are focused upon business and are determined to make some very real and needed improvements. Making a break with the past is featured. Fresh strategies and approaches are required. Do not lean on the past. Ask for advice as necessary.

Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

A process of creative gestation continues. Yet, in other respects you have already begun to implement new modes of expression. It is important to take key, calculated risks and the impulse to do so will continue. Originality and inventiveness are part of this plot and you must be the one to take the initiative.

Libra (Sep 22 – Oct 22)

Although the urge to socialize is lingering, you have already begun to turn your focus inward. Happy to have more solo time, you may even decline invitations. You have entered an important learning curve and it includes the paradoxical theme of unlearning. Allow and even contribute to helping old habits melt away.

Scorpio (Oct 22 – Nov 21)

Like it or not, you are in the spotlight now. You feel called to make meaningful contributions. Your friends are playing a pivotal role in this regard. Still, the challenge to stand your own ground remains strong. Paying dues and earning stripes is featured. Tap into your soul light and let your spirit shine.

Sagittarius (Nov 21 – Dec 21)

A visionary and creative spirit continues to guide your focus. Yet, you also feel compelled and determined to get to work. Practical realities are speaking, maybe even yelling. The message is largely about efficiency and linked to both finances and health. Be open to new tips, tools and techniques to provide leverage.

Capricorn (Dec 21 – Jan 19)

Digging deep continues yet is now balanced with looking to the bigger picture. Sometimes this requires stepping back and/or climbing a mountain to see from a new and clearer vantage point. Contemplation leading to critical analysis about what you want and need and what you can do about it is important now.

Aquarius (Jan 19 – Feb 19)

HoroaquariusYour social life has expanded but now the current is direction you back to a more sober and serious focus. Financial considerations are a motivating factor. You may also feel the need to clear the clutter, whether it is stuff in your home or useless and perhaps even damaging thoughts and attitudes. Clear the way!

Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

The process of getting the attention you want and need continues. Yet, to do so may require that you make some specific and definite changes in your usual approach. This may include inner work as well as outer. Identifying and healing limiting core beliefs and attitudes regarding how they affect your self-concept and sense of possibility is the deep end.
