Horoscope for the Week of August 15, 2004

15 August 2004

Tip of the Week:

The New Moon in Leo occurs on Sunday, August 15th at 6:24 pm, PDT. The energies include creativity, constructive criticism, diligent efforts, investments, strategic thinking, independent action, pioneering and an overall playful approach. Effective time management will go a long way now.

However, with Mercury retrograde as of August 9 and active until early September, we will have to pay extra close attention to the details and be patient with the process. Fortunately, Mercury is initially retrograde in Virgo where it is better than in other signs. However, Mercury will retrograde into Leo on August 24. The key to this position is to acknowledge the talents and achievements of others, avoid comparing and jealousy and be willing to role model the successes of others in as much as such guidance helps us on our own path of destiny. Despite free will, destiny is very real and everyone has a destiny. Decipher your destiny and intend to choose consciously and creatively to follow the high road. To this end, Astrology helps immensely!

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)

This week's New Moon in Leo is sowing some creative seeds for you. As is the nature of seeds, there is a very earthy and practical aspect to it. New levels of ambition and determination will become more obvious as the month progresses and should peak at the end of the month under the Full Moon. The desire for a more secure and cozy situation will fuel your decisions. With Mercury retrograde, a deep analysis of your lifestyle and flow will come naturally.

Taurus (Apr 21 - May 20)

Playing with creative ideas and possibilities is in the spotlight. These will include your career and livelihood, your home and the quality of your overall lifestyle. In any case, you are in the mood to improve and refine things. It is likely that a core aspect of your focus will be to include more fun and romance in your life. Life is too short to take it, oneself or anyone else for that matter too seriously. Ironically, it can take effort to achieve this. Clarify your desires and intentions to the loves in your life.

Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20)

Creating a home environment where you feel secure continues. This includes a free flow of inspiration. This is necessary for your overall health and well-being. While the concerns of others are on your mind as well, you must acknowledge your own needs otherwise your sacrifice will backfire. This is a good time to exercise the 'watcher within', which activates awareness, objective clarity, honesty and detachment and reduces reaction and judgmental attitudes. Speak your truth clearly and peacefully.

Cancer (Jun 21 - Jul 21)

Drawing upon your resources, skills and talents to fix and improve things that you can do rather than hire is now a central theme. You are in the mood to learn and refine your knowledge and skills. This may include a constructively criticism. Working with and for others is likely. However, you would probably prefer contracts to anything that will lock you in. Alternatively, you might be interested in establishing your own business; at least entertain the possibilities!

Leo (Jul 22 - Aug 21)

Although the Sun has been in your sign for about three weeks now, the New Moon in Leo will really contribute to a dynamic momentum. As old foundations steadily erode you are ready to establish a more expansive and yet realistic approach. Breaking free from past habits in thought, feeling and action is probably your greatest hurdle at this stage of the game. Facing the unknown creates stress and can blind us to the possibilities thus blocking forward movement and progress. Be aware and break through!

Virgo (Aug 22 - Sep 23)

While you happy to lay low and somewhat behind the scenes, you are also feeling very ready to launch bold new initiatives. These include changes on relationship fronts in one way or another. Before to jump in to what looks good, proceed cautiously and negotiate terms with emphasis on details. While practical considerations will weigh heavily, consult your inner authority and double check the fine print before you sign any long-term contracts. Assert your worth and outline boundaries that will ensure that others agree.

Libra (Sep 23 - Oct 21)

Feeling your way through the uncertainties in your life is now in focus. Instinct combining with logic and intuition is the call now. Instinct is what protects us when survival needs surface. Intuition and rational counterbalance instinct and can nurture vision and strategy. Learning new skills and acquiring new tools is likely. This is a good time to sincerely connect within to clarify your individual needs. Be aware of settling for less than authentic self-expression.

Scorpio (Oct 22 - Nov 20)

You are currently in a creative leadership cycle, even if it is a rather short one. This is even more reason to be aware and to take action. This is a good time to ask for favours, loans, well-earned rewards and so on; authority figures will hear and take you more seriously for the next several weeks. Though summer is still here, this is the time to set your sights on realistic directions for the next six to nine months, at least. Break through any inertia and pursue your dreams.

Sagittarius (Nov 21 - Dec 20)

Working and playing with others is the call now. Taking initiatives to assert and expand as a means of increasing your power and authority in the world is key. This will inevitably include cooperative effort and focus. Drawing upon existing skills, however, may work better at this time than overemphasizing learning new ones. Affirm your capacities and acknowledge your experiences to overcome any self-doubts. Still, proceed slowly and cautiously and offset potential depression with humour.

Capricorn (Dec 21 - Jan 19)

Merging your skills, assets and resources with those of others continues. You are eager to proceed with joint projects and ventures. You recognize that this approach will help you to promote and expand your own position. Keeping things in perspective now includes a clear focus and appreciation of the big picture allowing emphasis to details to fall into rank accordingly, with Mercury retrograde, just the opposite is likely and could create strain relations. Keep things in Perspective.

Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 19)

Deepening ties on relationship fronts is now a central theme. You are ready to proceed to the next and deeper level. Re-evaluation and revision of approach and attitude will lead to improvements. Awakening to inner authority and guidance is a part of the deal. Doing what you do, purely and merely for outer gain, will not prove inspiring or fulfilling. You are awakening to your greater destiny and mission. Convey your thoughts and feelings fully and honestly with your partners.

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)

A creative mood is lingering. With September rapidly approaching, you are ready to engage in creative projects with practical direction. This includes a clarification of your own skills and services. The more you can present an authentic and clear definition of who you are, what you are offering and answer any other frequently asked questions the better. Taking your business, relationships and or overall lifestyle to the next level requires creative clarification!
