Weekly Horoscope: August 29 – September 4

It’s time for our weekly horoscopes again and this week is going to be a little crazy. Scroll down to find your sign to discover what you can expect for this first week of September!

This is a busy week when it comes to what’s going on in the stars. With Venus moving into well-balanced Libra at the same time Mercury goes into retrograde on Tuesday, along with the Virgo Solar Eclipse on Thursday, this is definitely not going to be one of those weeks you just skate through without incident. There will be incidents and they will be inconvenient. To be perfectly honest, I’d be surprised if the hijinks hadn’t already begun for you—I know they certainly have for me.

In fact, this is the second time this year that my horoscopes have come out late, and I am certain this has to do with Mercury, that tricky bastard! After getting sick and my a/c unit biting the dust (I live in Florida, for those of you who don’t know) and things just seem to have been going awry every which way I turned over the past week or so. Here’s to a better week ahead, though!

Read on to find what you can expect this week and learn how you can best handle whatever comes up.

Aries

aries

The week starts out with you wanting to have a little fun, Aries, and why not? You’ve bee placing a lot of your focus on work and day to day responsibilities, so let loose early in the week and do something for you.

Venus moving into Libra places this planet of love and affection in the area of your stars connected to your relationships and partnerships. If you are currently in a relationship, things will likely become a lot more balanced and the energy shared between the two you will be a lot more positive. If you aren’t in a relationship already this transit could mark a time when you’ll start something new with someone special.

Mercury turns retrograde in Virgo in the area of your stars that are connected to your work environment, your relationships with co-workers, day to day tasks and matters of health. When Mercury goes retrograde things just become frustrating and a lot of the time this thing can cause unforeseen problems in our lives.

Watch out for things to go haywire in any of the areas of your life I just mentioned, because with Jupiter expanding all of this Mercury retrograde madness, nobody will escape without being touched by this annoying transit. The Solar Eclipse on Thursday brings some positive energy to your work life and further emphasizes the need for there to be some changes made in this area of your life.

Over the weekend your focus will remain on relationships and forging better, stronger emotional bonds with those you care most about. You need more balance in your life and in your partnership and now is the perfect time to work on that.

Taurus

You’ll start the week out feeling more emotional than usual, Taurus, and you may want to spend some time at home to work through whatever it is you are dealing with right now. Your ruler, Venus, moves into Libra and the area of your stars connected with your work life and day to day tasks, bringing with it a better sense of balance to your day to day life.

You will be feeling more capable of getting organized and bringing a better sense of order to your life as the week goes on. Co-workers will be more agreeable and your general day to day environment will just seem a little better than it has been for a while. Finding a balance between work and play will become a matter you want or need to focus on now.

Mercury turns retrograde in the area of your stars connected with romance, happiness, and creativity on Tuesday. When Mercury goes retrograde things can just become frustrating and a lot of the time this transit precipitates unforeseen problems in our lives. Watch out for things to go haywire when it comes to your romantic relationships for the next few weeks, because with Jupiter expanding all of this Mercury retrograde madness, nobody will escape without being touched by this annoying transit.

On Thursday, the Solar Eclipse, also in Virgo, brings more emphasis and attention to the things in life that make you happy and bring you joy. This can actually create a bit of a stressful situation for you with the Lunar energy ushering in something new while Mercury Retrograde works against things going smoothly. Take what you can get and work toward finding happiness in your day to day life. The weekend is the perfect time to work on bringing order into the chaotic areas of your life. Make lists and then evaluate what is most important to give your attention to at this time.

Gemini

You’ll be full of new ideas and you’ll want to communicate these to whoever is willing to listen as the week starts out, Gemini. Short-term plans can be successful now, but avoid trying to start anything long-term, as these will only bring you frustration.

Venus moves into Libra and the area of your stars connected to romance and love and this can be a very positive time of the year for you. Focus on creative endeavors and don’t be afraid to let your flirty side out. Mercury, which happens to be your ruling planet, goes retrograde on Tuesday in the area of your stars connected to matters of home and family.

Don’t be surprised if things go awry within your home. Appliances may break, family members may be hard to deal with and you may not quite know how to handle these things. Just breathe. Jupiter is fueling this Mercury retrograde madness and making problems that arise seem much larger than they truly are.

The Solar Eclipse happening on Thursday, also, will add a touch of positive energy to your home and family life and the duality of newness and frustration in starting new things actually makes whatever occurs easier for you to handle, being that you can now use your own sense of duality to find solutions to problems that arise.

Over the weekend you’ll be feeling a need to take a break and just enjoy life for a bit. Don’t worry about all those responsible tasks that need to be addressed or problems that need to be solved for at least a day. Take a day off, be lazy, stay in your pajamas and just decompress.

Cancer

cancer

You are feeling deliberate in your thoughts and not in any hurry to do anything early in the week, Cancer. You want to make certain that you make the right decisions and finances are on your mind. Venus moves into Libra and the area in your stars connected to your home and family. This transit brings a lot of positive energy and balance to your home life, which is right where you normally feel the most comfortable.

Mercury turns retrograde in the area of your stars connected to how you communicate and your thought processes. This transit may cause some issues in your life when it comes to communicating with others and finding the words to say what you want to say.

There’s also potential for car trouble, missing the bus, or generally just being late through no real fault of your own while Mercury is doing its thing. Take these minor setbacks in stride and maintain your composure during all the retrograde madness. Let this cosmic ride take you where you need to be and stay flexible.

The Solar Eclipse on Thursday, also happening in the area of your stars connected to communication and thought processes can add some positive energy to the minor frustrations you’ve been experiencing. New opportunities are on the horizon, so pay attention and take advantage of them when they find you.

The weekend is a great time to spend at home with loved ones in a comfortable environment. Being in the company of those who love and support you will do you good, especially after the stresses of the week. Take some time to unwind and prepare for the week ahead.

Leo

You start the week of with high energy, Leo, and your focus in on solidifying something stable in your life. You’ve got the energy and the drive to make it happen and now seems like the right time to go for it.

Venus moves into Libra early in the week and into the area of your stars connected to communications and how you relate to others. Your words will flow easily now and it’s much easier to articulate your thoughts in a manner that others respond well to. This is the perfect time to say whatever you may have been holding back because of worrying about how it might come across.

Mercury goes into retrograde on Tuesday in the area of your stars connected with your financial stability. This can pose some problems when it comes to balancing your checkbook and managing your personal funds.

Be smart with money matters over the next couple of weeks, as Jupiter in the mix here can make small problems seem much larger than they actually are. The Solar Eclipse in this same area of your chart could help to balance some of this out, but there are still bound to be a few bumps along your financial path in the near future.

Over the weekend you may feel lost in your fantasies and dreams, so try to stay tethered to the Earth as much as you can. Your creativity is high, but responsibilities are looming and you need to take care of a few things before you get too lost in a good time.

Virgo

This is a big week for you, Virgo, and there are bound to be some frustrating moments in your very near future. Don’t sweat it too much, though, this is where your prime powers of planning and organization can really come in handy.

The major upside to this week is that Venus is moving into Libra and the area of your stars connected with your personal finances. Your earning power is likely to increase as a result of this positive energy balancing your finances, so make good use of it!

Mercury turns retrograde on Tuesday and there is a Solar Eclipse on Thursday, both in your sign, that are going to make you feel a little shaken up and “off.” Don’t let things get to you too much, but do take this opportunity to look at what things in your life could use a little rearranging. I can tell you, as a Virgo myself, that this is going to be a big one for us, so hold tight and handle whatever comes your way without freaking out.

Over the weekend you may start to feel kind of lazy, which is not your norm, but you may just be needing a break after a long week. Don’t burn the candle at both ends for too long or you will definitely start to feel it. Take the time to write down things you’d like to accomplish and file them away for when the time is right.

Libra

libra

Early in the week, you’re feeling like stepping outside of your comfort zone and trying something new, Libra. Just about whatever you do now will be well received with your ruler, Venus, moving into your sign on Tuesday, so don’t hold back.

Your charming and effervescent personality is shining through and you can easily catch the attention of your admirers this week. In fact, you probably can’t seem to get any time to yourself, which you may start to feel you need when Mercury goes into retrograde in the area of your stars connected to the side of life you’d prefer to leave in the shadows.

It’s like that with Mercury turning retrograde and the Solar Eclipse both happening in this shadowy area of your stars that some things you once thought were behind you for good will pop back up and demand that you deal with them. This isn’t always a comfortable place for a retrograde Mercury transit to occur, in fact, it hardly ever is “comfortable,” but you can handle anything life throws your way. Venus in your sign will definitely help with this.

Your energy will be high over the weekend and you may want to start something new you’ve been thinking about doing. Expect to get a little extra attention from those around you, and even those who travel just to be around you. You will be quite popular this weekend, but deep down you love the attention.

Scorpio

You start the week out focusing your energies on getting ahead in life and knowing where you’re headed, Scorpio. You tend to command attention from those who are in control, if you aren’t in control yourself, that is. Early in the week, you will be in the zone and ready to tackle whatever is necessary to reach your goals, so don’t be afraid to try.

Venus moves into Libra early in the week and you can achieve a sense of peace and balance within yourself by working through things alone. You can get a lot of benefit out of meditation and time spent in quiet contemplation now, so give this some consideration when it feels like life is just not going the way you’d like.

Mercury goes into retrograde in the area of your stars connected to your biggest hopes and dreams on Tuesday, making you question the things you are chasing after. Don’t let this sometimes frustrating energy shake your foundation or make you reconsider something you truly do want to be working toward, though. Stay focused.

Relationships and communications between you and your peers may seem kind of strained, so do the best you can to not lose your cool within groups you belong to. The Solar Eclipse on Thursday can add some positive vibes to this area of your life, as well as usher in some new major opportunity.

The weekend finds you wanting to spend some time alone, not among your peers, to just focus on you. Don’t drain yourself too much, it’s been a busy week and next week will be even busier, so rest up!

Sagittarius

You start the week out feeling optimistic and like things are going to go your way, Sagittarius. You like to be able to see all sides of a situation and this week you can totally do that. Venus enters the area of your stars connected with friends and fun social situations early in the week, so expect to find your social calendar filled to the brim for the next couple of weeks.

You can see your goals and dreams coming to fruition now, so keep on track and know that you will get there if you just keep at it. You do well in groups of like-minded individuals now and you have this feeling that you don’t have to go it alone.

Mercury goes into retrograde on Tuesday in the area of your stars connected to your professional goals and your life path, so there may be some upsets in this area of your life in the coming weeks. Don’t let these get you down, just be sure you have all your ducks in a row and you’ll come out of this retrograde period just fine.

The Solar Eclipse on Thursday is happening in this same area of your stars, which will help to offset a bit of the frustrations. You may come to the realization that you aren’t quite headed in the right direction, though. Trust your instincts on this one.

The weekend brings with it an opportunity to work with others to reach a goal. This week has been all about goal attainment for you, so keep at it. It’s time to enjoy a little rest and relaxation toward the end of the weekend and you can enjoy taking a time out to enjoy the things that make you happy.

Capricorn

capricorn

The week starts out with you feeling like you need to focus on more serious issues in your life, Capricorn. Shared finances and major things you’ve been dealing with will be a theme as the week begins, just don’t let yourself become obsessed with these things. You always handle situations with a responsible mindset, so don’t let this week cause you to get too carried away with emotions.

Venus moves into Libra and the area of your stars connected to your career and life path early in the week and for the next several weeks you will find it easier to get ahead professionally. This could be the time when you come into a new job or the right path is revealed to you. There can be a better sense of balance in your professional life now, too, so work toward this for the most positive outcome to whatever career related things you’ve been working on.

Mercury goes into retrograde in a fellow Earth sign on Tuesday and is followed on Thursday by a powerful Solar Eclipse happening in the area of your stars connected to higher education, travel, and your general world view. This can make you question the things you think you know to be true or your personal path to learning.

There may be some things you need or want to change about how you perceive the world as a whole, so listen to your intuition here and trust that you know what your true beliefs are supposed to be. It’s all about what’s right for you now, remember that. Long distance travel is not favored for the next couple of weeks, but f you must, make certain you check and double check those plane tickets and it’s probably best to only use a carry-on bag to avoid losing your stuff!

Over the weekend you will be focused on planning ahead and making sure your plans are in line with your true goals in life. Don’t spend the entire weekend focusing on work, there will be plenty of time for that next week. Enjoy the weekend and take some time off with friends or even just enjoy a little time alone preparing for the week to come.

Aquarius

The week begins with you focusing on your personal relationships, Aquarius. This isn’t always a super comfortable subject for you, as you like to work within a larger group than one-on-one, but trust that this is the time to try and build those emotional bonds and make them stronger.

Venus moves into Libra and into the area of your stars connected with your world view and travel. You may find yourself connecting with someone from a foreign land or someone who was brought up in a different manner than you were. Long distance relationships are possible now and can work out with a little effort on both ends.

Mercury goes into retrograde on Tuesday, followed by a powerful Solar Eclipse on Thursday in the area of your stars that harbors your more serious thoughts. There are a lot of possibilities here for you to feel a need to transform some area of your life, just make sure you aren’t going overboard.

Before you make any major changes first take the time to make lists of your personal goals and why you feel these changes should be happening. The odds are that it is, in fact, time for you to make some major life adjustments, but these should definitely be well thought out.

The weekend finds you in brighter spirits and with a more positive outlook on what’s happening in your life. You can connect emotionally wth those you know and care for but aren’t in your general vicinity. If you’ve decided a long distance thing isn’t for you, this weekend may change your mind.

Pisces

As the week begins you are feeling like getting a lot accomplished, Pisces. You aren’t known for your stellar organizational skills, but early in the week you are getting things done and organizing life like nobody’s business. Take advantage of this and you can cross a lot off of your to-do list.

Venus moves into Libra and into the area of your stars connected with inheritance and the more life changing elements of your life on Tuesday. This doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be the benefactor of something huge this week, but if you are to receive such things this year, now will be the time it happens. You may find that you are connecting more intensely with the people in your life who are the most important to you and you feel like diving in feet first. Enjoy this period, but don’t let things in your life consume you completely.

Mercury turns retrograde on Tuesday and is quickly followed by an intense Solar Eclipse on Thursday, both happening in the area of your stars connected to your most personal relationships.

Miscommunications and misunderstandings between you and your partner are possible right now and you may even come to the realization that some elements of your relationship are just not working for you. Trust your intuition on this and do what feels right. You may also be able to use this energy to get closer to the one you love, so there is a good sense of balance here.

Over the weekend you aren’t really feeling like being the center of attention. Take some time to yourself to mull over what’s transpired this week. You have a lot happening in the coming weeks and you’ll need your strength and to have your wits about you to handle these things. You may also find that this weekend is perfect for bonding and deepening those emotional ties that bind you and your loved ones.
