Last week was a struggle, thanks to the intense reality check full moon in Aquarius gave us. Luckily, your horoscope for the week of August 15 to 21 says things are taking a turn for the better. The universe is rewarding you for all your hard work, so dive right into the good vibes. It’s a powerful time to manifest your desires into reality, so start envisioning it now.
You know that feeling where everything starts to click and you realize you’re starting to understand an incredibly complex idea? On August 16, you might be getting that feeling more than once! As Mercury—planet of communication and connection—forms a trine with Uranus—planet of innovation and forward-thinking—you might just experience a burst of insight that changes the technique or methods that you’ve been using. Get practical about these methods, because both Mercury and Uranus are moving through earth signs, which is encouraging you to get grounded and constructive. Jot down your blueprints, map out a plan and get to work!
By August 18, Venus—planet of love and friendship—will form a trine with expansive and optimistic Jupiter, which is paving the way for playful and romantic energy. This trine will help you tap into a source of deep joy, so follow your heart and do what brings you the most happiness! If you’re single, this is an incredible time to get out there and start flirting with someone who catches your eye. If you’re taken, you should set aside time to really soak up each other’s company (if you know what I mean).
By the end of the week, you might notice a major energetic shift beginning to unfold. On August 20, Mars—planet of drive and courage—will enter clever, intelligent and social Gemini, encouraging you to indulge in your deepest intellectual interests! However, Mars is also a planet that loves conflict, which means that gossip could run rampant during this time. Also, be careful how you come across, because Mars in Gemini can also entice everyone to communicate in a more rude or brash way. And once chatty Mercury forms an opposition with dreamy and disorienting Neptune on August 21, it’s important to take everything with a grain of salt. Neptune prevents you from seeing things clearly, so wait for the fog to disperse before making judgments!
