Astrology ~ WEEKLY HOROSCOPES, Aug. 18-24, 2014, by Beverley


Astrologically it’s a much quieter week, so the horoscopes may look very similar to last weeks, although the aspects formed between planets may differ, as they do move by a few degrees. Mercury and Venus both stay where they are until early September, Mars in Scorpio until Mid September, and the generation planets Jupiter through to Pluto remain where they are for some considerable time yet, both in their signs and Direct or Retrograde movement.

The Sun is now in it’s last week of theatrical, impressive, bossy, frivolous Leo. On Sunday however the Sun moves into practical, systematic Virgo, adding a bit more interest, but more details on the Virgo Sun next week.

The Moon starts the week in talkative, impulsive, flirtatious Gemini staying there until Wednesday. On Thursday it moves into caring, emotional, defensive & sensitive Cancer. On Saturday it moves into domineering, exuberant, melodramatic Leo.

Mercury is now settled in balanced, decisive, fastidious Virgo, with a practical, structured and detailed approach.

Venus is now settled in loving, expressive & excessive Leo, with possible tendencies to go over the top at times.

Mars remains in compulsive, envious, responsive, resourceful Scorpio, until the middle of next month, with a need for personal control over people and situations.

Jupiter is now approximately one third of the way through benevolent, extrovert, positive, expansive Leo, making us kind-hearted.

Saturn remains in responsible, shrewd, strong-willed Scorpio, until the end of 2014. It is now traveling Direct, enabling self expansion in some respects.

Uranus remains in assertive, blunt, energetic, self-willed Aries, for several years, and can make us individualistic and rebellious, unexpected events or disruptive emotional matters, may distract us, or help us see things differently.

Neptune remains in sensitive, intuitive Pisces for the foreseeable future, and helps us gradually develop more empathy, compassion, and build understanding, in a wide variety of ways, but also indicates a need to remain realistic. Neptune is now traveling Retrograde until Mid December, indicating boundaries between reality and illusion may blur at times, causing possible confusion, with a need to look at people and situations realistically.

Pluto remains in Capricorn for quite a few years, so is a very long term influence, showing knowledge gradually acquired on deeper levels, with balance, & realistic ways of recycling & developing our intuitive knowledge further, to use practically. Pluto travels Retrograde until late September, with a relentless search for inner truth, furthering our self knowledge approached the right way.
