Weekly horoscope Aug. 5 – 11

michael oconnor horoscopeTip of the Week:

The New Moon in Leo which occurred on August 2nd is charged with fire. The symbolic interpretation of the Fire Element includes words like inspiration, passion, enthusiasm, zeal, animation, drama, fury, and so on. The Sun and Moon at 10 Leo incorporates the themes of Sagittarius which symbolically translates to include words like expansive, large and even enormous, vision, fervor, multicultural, religion, philosophy and ethics.

Mars and Saturn are in Sagittarius and at the time of the New Moon were almost 10 degrees apart which is called a ‘wide angle conjunction’. Yet, due to the fact that Saturn is retrograde and will be until August 13, both planets are currently approaching exact conjunction, which will occur on August 22, two days after the Sun enters Virgo. So, we can expect a build-up of their assertive and expansive energy pattern over the coming weeks

Jupiter in Virgo all the while, along with Mercury and the Lunar North Node will serve to soften the otherwise explosive and even violent expression of Mars conjunct Saturn in fiery and exuberant Sagittarius fueled by the Sun in Leo. Get ready for a new wave of excitement and drama.

Aries (Mar 21–Apr 20)

An exciting cycle that started a couple of weeks ago has shifted into high gear. That it includes more emphasis upon practical affairs may be a bit of a damper.

Leo (Jul 22–Aug 23)

The recent New Moon in your sign indicates the urge to take pioneering leads.

Yet it remains important that you be patient with the results of your initiatives.

Virgo (Aug 23–Sep 22)

A creative cycle continues yet the emphasis may be more directed to the studio than the stage. There could be some of both, however, where circumstances push you out to perform.
