Your Horoscope September 1 through 7

Astrologer’s Diary

Now this is fascinating. Mercury the media planet enters Libra, the sign that rules equal marriage and civil partnership, on Tuesday 2nd September. This resumes the conversation for the generation born with Pluto and Uranus in Libra. They are on the planet to revolutionise the way governments and churches think about lesbian, gay and transgender people make commitments. Mercury is about to turn retrograde shadow, though, so nobody should actually buy into the September-October ‘decisions’ and ‘rulings’ with any sense of certainty. What is uttered as gospel, decreed by the courts and so on, could easily come unstuck with one computer problem or one flakey decision maker! The other big deal this week is Jupiter in Leo quincunx Pluto in Capricorn on Friday 5th September. You know what’s big business in 2014? Children. Just watch corporations and governments fall over themselves to finally tune children in. Leo is the sign to be associated with women, in particular, who campaign for young people (like J.K.Rowling and Beatrix Potter). As J.K.Rowling clearly uses astrologer, or maybe just an astrologer, you would have to speculate that her Harry Potter empire is about to take a powerful turn in September 2014.

aries

Aries: 1-7 September 2014

Aries, on Friday 5th September, Pluto in Capricorn will form a quincunx to Jupiter in Leo at 11.23am in London. This is rare. It will also empower you to transform some aspect of your career, other calling in life. Someone or something will give you a tremendous new potency, in terms of your job, project, role, course or plans. At the same time, you would be mad not to take full advantage of the sensational opportunity now emerging with the next generation. This applies to babies, children, teenagers or perhaps (depending on your own age) Gen X, Y or Z, born 20 years after you. What or who is on offer now, is quite straightforward. You have so much to gain. An awful lot of Aries people are about to merge ambition, position and mission with parenthood – or in other cases, a mentor/guardian role with much younger people, either through the family, a godparenting role – or a voluntary/paid gig involving the young.


taurus

Taurus: 1-7 September 2014

Taurus, this is a welcome turning point for your travel, internet, foreign, publishing and/or educational agenda. You may feel there are no more substantial changes that could possibly happen, but what is now gathering speed will help you reinvent what matters. In fact, reinvention and relaunch is the theme for the rest of the year, if you can only pursue and persist – and be patient enough to make this (relatively new) thing work in your life. How empowered would you feel? This much – just throw your arms wide open and embrace the possibility. What else is going on now? Well, it’s connected. You’re being thrown something or someone so substantial and special. The family, house, home town, apartment, homeland or household could become so much bigger and better for you. Just say yes. I mean, come on, why on earth would you say no? You can develop a truly meaningful relationship with your people or place.


gemini

Gemini: 1-7 September 2014

Gemini, my aunt (born in May) just enquired about the prospects for her sign this week, and I immediately thought of her ukelele playing. And singing. And the fact that since Jupiter in Leo turned up in July, she has composed and sung a couple of tributes at family weddings and birthdays. Jupiter in Leo works in mysterious ways, Gemini, but it works through words. You may be a professional wordsmith – lots of people born under your sign are. Or maybe you just want to create lyrics, poetry, blogs, scripts, YouTube hits, articles or mimed performance. Jupiter in Leo on Friday, in aspect to powerful Pluto, reminds you that you must pursue what/who is there, to the exclusion of everything else if necessary. You seriously do not wake up in the right time and place like this very often – and words are your thing! What else is going on now? Basically, the house of your chart which Patric Walker believed ruled ‘matters of a joint financial nature’ is transforming in your favour. It’s all terribly new, this chapter with your house, money, flat, possessions or business. But it’s so potent.


cancer

Cancer: 1-7 September 2014

Cancer, the great truth of your sign at the moment is that the more you devote yourself to faking Libra characteristics – like intense teamwork with one other person – the more powerful you become. I suspect you have already made one giant leap in that department in the last few years anyway. You’ve figured out the whole duet or double-act thing, perhaps more than once. And what a marvellous legacy this has left you. What is utterly new now, though, is the aspect from Pluto in Libra’s traditional horoscope house, the Seventh, to the joy planet Jupiter. So take this situation with he or she who matters so much and work it. This includes enemies, rivals and opponents. You’re being given a chance to remake, remodel, reshape that doesn’t come along all that often. Simultaneously, Jupiter is handing you the chance of the year – perhaps of many years – to gain from a financial, property, business or charity solution.


leo

Leo: 1-7 September 2014

Leo, Jupiter in your sign just handed you the best chance in ages to really spruce up your image – maybe change your name or title, eventually, to your total advantage – and certainly to relaunch yourself. I will repeat something I’ve written elsewhere for your sign. No matter if you are taking off a layer and revealing an old model of yourself (one that works so damn well today) or actually adding new, wondrous layers – it’s all creating marvellous change. The only thing you really have to do now is to keep nodding and smiling – and saying ‘Yes’ whenever the story moves on for you. What else gives this week? Pluto is triggered in Capricorn, the sign which rules your devotion to service and duty in the name of your work ethic. Even President Obama has this pattern. I suspect that being a dutiful cog in the machinery is the best thing you could be doing, and you will see why very close to Friday. The world needs Leo cogs!


virgo

Virgo: 1-7 September 2014

Virgo, you have learned (to your advantage) that when you pretend to be a Leo, you become more powerful. More potent. And other advantages come your way. So what does a Leo do, on this planet? Well, she or he is primarily here to guide, mentor, influence and inspire a younger generation. This can happen through life as a parent, godparent, grandparent, aunt or uncle. It can also happen through professional or voluntary commitments to younger people. This week Jupiter in Leo makes his presence felt with a thunderous boom in your horoscope, near Friday 5th September. There may actually be thunder or thunderclap omens around this time to impress you. Anything from an AC/DC symbol to the real thing, with storm clouds, may be the cosmic sign you need. But no matter how it occurs in your life, this wave of change is about owning the legacy of your personality to those born 20 years or more after yourself and realising how much it empowers you. The other story now? You know this one. When you cover things up, or play Mr/Miss Invisible, you gain so much.


libra

Libra: 1-7 September 2014

Libra, on Friday 5th September or very close to it, you can move things forward again with your friend, or the group. The friendship may be old or new. The group may be anything from a professional network, to a sports team. You have every right to be excited and hopeful. What’s been developing lately is perfectly timed in your life. And this hasn’t even really begun yet – what you are seeing is the planted seed. If you cultivate the seeds of friendship or teamwork in September, you will have a stunning harvest by mid 2015. I would describe what happens near Friday as a growth spurt, so be your own life gardener. This person/these people are the award-winning roses; the sensational sunflowers. And some are just bloody enormous marrows. What else am I seeing in your chart now? Well, a parallel story (and just as important) is the massive potential shift you could be welcoming in terms of your place, or people. Your house or home town. Your flat or homeland. Your family or household. Your home girls and home boys. You want empowerment? Take it.


scorpio

Scorpio: 1-7 September 2014

Scorpio, your ruling planet (okay, actually a dwarf planet these days) is Pluto and that instantly gives you a clue about your horoscope this week. Pluto is about the upsizing and downsizing of situations. And when it comes to your way with words – online and in the real world – you have seen so many variations on this theme since 2008 you may feel you’ve seen it all. Astrology always holds just one more surprise, though, and very close to Friday 5th September a stunning quincunx from Pluto to Jupiter suggests you must pursue the person, project or possibility which is so clearly going to give you the potency you deserve as a words person. You may be concerned with lyrics, chapters, articles, blogs, social media, speeches, foreign languages, multimedia – every Scorpio has her/his own medium. The person, project or possibility concerned is handing you the keys to an unbeatable new feeling. And hey, it could last. What is also going to last, for almost another 12 glorious months, is success. Something all-new, all-singing and all-dancing just landed in your life last week. You knew it was worth chasing. You’re so right. Show willing. No, just show massively enthuastic. You have no idea just how amazing this could be, until you try.


sagittarius

Sagittarius: 1-7 September 2014

Sagittarius, your ruler Jupiter aligns with Pluto towards the weekend, so you are entering September in the best possible position. A person or situation which slide onto your radar a few months ago recently went to the top of your list. Keep it there, no matter if we are talking about a trip, a relocation, a web venture, a book, a course or workshop – or an aspect of your scientific or spiritual beliefs that has found a good home. In many, many cases a regional or foreign location or local is part of the story for your sign now. So what do you do? It’s so easy with Jupiter. You just hold out your hands, or throw open your arms, and walk towards him, her, them or ‘it’ with an enormous smile. What is also new and also rather intoxicating is the realisation that there is always room for another change with your money, house, business, charity, apartment or possessions. The kind that makes you wake up feeling like King or Queen of the world. You cannot pay for that thrilling feeling of control nor buy it in a catalogue, but your horoscope is handing it to you, be you quids in, or broke.


capricorn

Capricorn: 1-7 September 2014

Capricorn, on Friday 5th September there is a pattern in your horoscope that is rare and welcome. Pluto, the symbol of empowerment and control, aligns with Jupiter, an ancient symbol of growth, expansion, hope for the future and great rewards. I suspect you have already stumbled upon the key to the door that opens the latter. In fact, the person, possibility, project, place or person which has just zoomed into focus, after a nice period of soft focus, is a very big key indeed. What’s through the keyhole? More, more, more – in terms of your house, apartment, money, precious possessions, business assets or general lifestyle and security. How mad would you be, to let this pass you by? This mad (twirls both fingers on opposite signs of the head). Only a loco Capricorn would let a chance like this pass him/her by, given the huge amount you will gain by 2015 if it all works out. And at every juncture, you will be helped by fate to make it work out. What else is showing up in your chart now? Pluto in your own sign, urging you to relaunch yourself yet again. You’ve done this repeatedly since 2008 (with perhaps one really big shot, which worked well) but here’s another variation on the theme. New you. Or new version of you. Yes!


aquarius

Aquarius: 1-7 September 2014

Aquarius, just when you thought you knew exactly who/what would be the main story with your former, current or potential partner – Jupiter surprises you. In the nicest possible way of course. This man or woman is at the heart of a story which has developed well enough for you since July, giving you one chance after another to pursue something so much better. What is now under construction in your horoscope, though, is something rather different but equally welcome. And all you have to really do is just follow the signs. And show willing. Jupiter doesn’t just hurl the solution for your marriage, or the chance for a new relationship, or (insert possibility here) and then deliver it. You have to grab the baseball of fate and put it through the hoop yourself. Bouncing and whooping all the way, like the Harlem Globetrotters circa 1974. The other scenario right now is that you are entwined with an enemy, rival or opponent in some way that is oddly beneficial for you. Again, whoop and bounce. What happens near Friday is a whole new ball game and one that works sublimely for you. Last note on your chart? You have learned so much about staying beneath the radar this year. Go even deeper. Go darker. It’s where the new power is.


pisces

Pisces: 1-7 September 2014

Pisces, there are no random coincidences or accidents in astrology. It’s based on synchronicity – those huge, wow-factor moments when you feel as if the universe is actually programming things in a divinely intelligent way. And the word of the week is divine. Because what has been happening with your old friend, your social media, your new friend – or most importantly, The Group – is meant to be right now. It is meant to be because you need to know what it feels like to find power and potency through a very particular kind of relationship. It has to be light, airy, breezy – and it utterly suits the internet, which is so impersonal, yet so rich in networks and friendships. As you will see very close to Friday 5th September, nothing gives you the steering wheel like the right kind of team, tribe or chum. What else is going on now? Jupiter in Leo has been so subtle in terms of his steadily growing impact on your daily workload and lifestyle, which of course incorporates your physical wellbeing. He’s been subtle but he’s not a slacker. If you go back, back, back all the way to July and beyond you will see how all the jigsaw pieces were being put on the board. No more puzzles. A brilliant future waits, if you are prepared to push this chance.

Your Horoscope August 25 through 31

Astrologer’s Diary

First up, it was interesting to see just how accurate the astrology was about royal romance in the air last week, as the Venus-Jupiter conjunction in the regal sign of Leo on Monday 18th August, produced these headlines in The Express: PRINCE HARRY’S EX CHELSY DAVY SET TO MARRY HER SOCIETY JEWELLER BOYFRIEND. If The Express is right, the once-and-for-all elimination of Chelsy Davy from Prince Harry’s little black book, puts the focus on another ex, Cressida Bonas, as well as his new girlfriend, model Camilla Thurlow. And heavens above, Kate Middleton has invited both women to Harry’s 30th birthday party at Kensington Palace…What about the final week of August, though? How is the global horoscope looking? Monday 25th August is dramatic, with a New Moon at 2 Virgo 18 at 3.12pm in London, followed by a Mars-Saturn conjunction just a few hours later at 8.29pm. Unfortunately Scorpio is the sign associated with sex and money (and money and sex) and that conjunction is ominous. About thirty years ago, when Saturn was last in Scorpio, the planet was dealing with the HIV virus and AIDS and the implications for the health insurance and life insurance industries. Right now, the focus has switched to paedophiles and the ‘business’ of child and pre-adult sexual abuse. It doesn’t matter if it’s celebrities and politicians in Britain, or the Catholic church in Australia, that Mars-Saturn conjunction is a judgement call and a wake-up call. It is possible the United States will also become woven into this general worldwide reality check about the sexual exploitation of children and pre-adults, near 25th August.

aries

Aries: 25-31 August 2014

 

Your ruling planet Mars forms a conjunction with Saturn on Monday 25th August at 8.20pm in London (adjust for your time zone and town). This is one of the last ‘moments of truth’ you will have to put up with in connection with your money, company, business, house, flat, possessions or charity. Why so? Because after Christmas Saturn will have left your cash, security and lifestyle zone and he will not be back for 29 years. In the meantime there is a lot you can do. No matter how famous you are for your assertiveness, your competitiveness, your remarkable speed and energy, there is sometimes a lot to be said for stepping back from a situation and analysing it, before applying some long-term tactics. To put it a more old-fashioned way; do not make a difficult situation worse. The New Moon, also on Monday, falls in Virgo, the sign which rules your daily workload and your relationship with your own body. You can expect the beginning of a new phase or chapter from this point forward. In fact, as August turns into September, the continued emphasis on the minutiae of your everyday existence, and your work ethic – not to mention your physical condition and wellbeing – will clear up a great deal. One of the issues all this immediately raises for you is the secrets that you keep, or the unseen roles you play. You will be given great insight into the way the situation has built up in 2014, in the weeks ahead. No matter how uncomfortable this occasionally is, you must take an objective view of the need for some boundaries, to contain and control what is so often threatening to become chaotic, confusing or confused. The fact that others simply do not see, know or remotely fathom this aspect of yourself, of your life, has made it more difficult for you to rein anything in, as there is simply nobody around to do that. Nevertheless, September as a whole will enlighten you. New rules for this secret or invisible world will follow.

 

 


taurus

Taurus: 25-31 August 2014

 

A high percentage of Taurus people must now deal with the realities of marriage, separation, divorce or de facto relationships – but in the context of pregnancy, step-parenthood, child custody or possibly adult children. If this sounds like you, then very close to Monday 25th August when we have two unusual planetary patterns, the decision you have needed to make for months will be looming. Try to remove all the potential for negativity from the situation. No matter how stuck, slow or mired in fear the situation may feel now (all trademarks of a Saturn cycle) by Christmas that atmosphere will vanish. Ask yourself what you would do, were certain heavy individuals, or heavy atmospheres, no longer an issue. In other cases, you may be single and free of both relationships or children, yet this week begs answers about both. Finding the right pace is crucial. If you do not move at all, you remain stuck. However, if you push too hard and fast, you could be complicating a situation which is already rather loaded in your life. More than anything else you need a set of tactics – psychological, emotional, practical or just sexual – which will get you through the remaining four months of this obstacle course. The other issue to bear in mind for September is the chemistry of friendship, or perhaps the alchemy between people in a group. This may be soaked in alcohol or drugs for some Taurus people. Neptune has a way of producing that! Alternatively the rather fuzzy, hazy, clouded atmosphere is entirely down to the spectacular lack of boundaries that exist between you and your friend, or within the network itself. Even though you are unlikely to clap your hands and jump for joy at what goes down over the next few weeks, it should be welcomed on another level. Why? Because you will see what you did not see before, and a decision is so overdue.

 


gemini

Gemini: 25-31 August 2014

 

This is a decisive New Moon in the detail-conscious, practical sign of Virgo and it will point you in a new direction with your family, your house, your flat, your home town, your household or your homeland for some time to come. Look up and you will see it overhead as the week begins; make a wish, or set an intention – however you want to phrase it – and watch your new beginning take hold. It’s almost a given that if what you desire, also meets the hopes, dreams and wishes of others, it becomes so much easier to manifest. This applies to property ladders as much as it does to your relatives. The issue of your lifestyle as a whole is more complex. The fact remains that Saturn is still in Scorpio, and thus the planet associated with waiting games, loaded atmospheres, heavy issues and unavoidable realities is still having a daily impact. This may be about your work ethic or your working life. It may be about your body, and specifically the mind, body and spirit connection. The key to this week, though, and in fact the next four months as a whole, is to refuse to go in too hard – or move too fast. And also, perhaps, not to just respond in the heat of the moment if you are being provoked or pushed. If ever there was a moment for a methodical bit of Gemini planning, this is it. Your sign is ruled by Mercury the Messenger of the Gods and is associated with clever minds and whirring brain cells. You need a strategy and you will thank yourself for having formulated it this week. The question of your work ethic and daily tasks and chores (no matter if you are a full-time professional, student or volunteer) also brings in the theme for September, which is reality checks. For months now there has been nothing remotely real or ordinary about your goals and ambitions, or the position you hold. What happens near Friday 29th August is the first of many reminders to plant your feet on solid earth, rather than continue to drift, ebb and flow with one current of non-reality after another. The sooner you do this the better; there is a Full Moon on Tuesday 9th September to sort things out, in any case. Step well away from the project, plan, role or position and try to identify at what point the boundary creep began with others, and what you can do to contain and control what slips and slides like the ocean tides.

 


cancer

Cancer: 25-31 August 2014

 

Once Mars changes signs close to Saturday 13th September, you will no longer be dealing with the potential for emotional heat with (or surrounding) your children. This also applies to younger relatives and to any relationship where future pregnancy, adoption, child custody or step-parenting is part of the story. Knowing that you only have around three more weeks of tension to deal with, either in yourself, or in others, should make it easier for you to strategise. You very much need tactics at the moment, and you can double that message if your former, current or potential partner is Cancer or Taurus. No matter what signs are involved, no matter how heavy and intractable a situation feels, remember that the toughest cycle in 29 years will end at Christmas. If you are free of either relationship baggage or children, then the Mars-Saturn conjunction on Monday 25th August is about broader questions. A voluntary or non-profit role involving younger people may be one example of this. Another might be your position as a godmother or godfather. Then there are issues about the next generation, full stop – those born 20 years or more after you, who inherit the  legacy of your personality. The astrological advice is similar. You need tactics. A strategy. You also need to remember that the heat will disappear near 13th September and the relentless heaviness of the atmosphere will lift completely near Christmas. This week also sees a new beginning involving the internet, media, publishing, your computer, your words, your voice or your images. Really push this out there into the world. New technology in your life, like a phone or laptop, may be part of the story. A bigger concern, long-term is the potential for confusion that surrounds your publishing, internet, academic, educational, travel or foreign agenda. What happens near Friday’s Sun-Neptune opposition will draw your attention to this. How on earth did you drift out this far? It doesn’t really matter; all that is required is the willingness to haul yourself back again. Unless you begin to do this consciously, containing and controlling things, September will be hard work.

 


leo

Leo: 25-31 August 2014

 

You must now live in the real world where your house, family, flat, home town, household or homeland is concerned. The Mars-Saturn conjunction on Monday 25th August at 8.20pm in London (adjust for your time zone) is a reminder to weigh your words and actions very carefully. Believe it or not Leo, there will come a time (just near Christmas Day, when Saturn finally leaves your house of home and clan) when the atmosphere lightens and your people, or your place, really starts to feel like something that’s easy to return to – not always a relentless obstacle course. Until that point, though, you must not buy into a needless conflict situation, nor act so impulsively that you complicate something regarding your house, flat, family, household, homeland or home town which was already hard enough work in the first place! The final comment about your week may concern the flat or apartment on a financial level, or perhaps just your cashflow, business, charity, possessions or company. The New Moon on Monday 25th August at 3.12pm in London makes it clear that a new beginning is coming. Try to make it a clear one. The Sun-Neptune opposition on Friday 29th August at 3.32pm urges you to step back from your situation and understand just how crucial it is to remain anchored, so that you do not end up floating right out of your depth. That New Moon is worth a wish. Wishing for reality and normality will stop you getting in over your head. Beyond mere wishes, though, when your ruler the Sun clashes with Neptune, it is time to understand that even Her Majesty the Queen had to set a budget a few years ago; even she had to confront tax! Queen Elizabeth II is a Taurus, of course (her own mother was the Leo) but she is a symbol for you right now. The sooner you can begin redrawing the financial, business, property or charity landscape, the better. Time to rope in and rein in anything which is all over the place.

 


virgo

Virgo: 25-31 August 2014

The New Moon in Virgo, your own sign, on Monday 25th August at 3.12pm (London time) will have a personal impact on you, if your birthday falls on August 24, 25 or 26 – and you can expect a new beginning in terms of your name, face, image, shape, style or profile. No matter when your birthday falls, either in August or September, there will be a new layer added to your persona this week, or perhaps an old layer taken off. It’s all good. A New Moon in your sign is always good – especially when there is nothing else to complicate it. You must step back from your perception of a former, current or potential partner, though. And perhaps an enemy, opponent or rival. No matter how uncomfortable it may feel near Friday 29th August, and throughout September as a whole, do use every moment of truth, to become more detached and realistic about this person. It would appear that you have been using him, her (or just the whole situation) as an escape from the real world, or a way to avoid or evade other basic facts of life. It takes great insight to be able to see this, when you are in such a foggy Neptune cycle, but from Friday onwards, the windscreen wipers will be at work and little by little, even though you may not particularly love the process, you will see a clear view of who and what is actually there. What else is going on this week? Well, you have had easier times in terms of the internet, the media, publishing, your computer, your phone, language, hearing and all other communication issues. There is no doubt at all that this situation is about timing, though. Within three weeks the tension will go. And by Christmas, the heaviness will lift. Knowing that, you can craft a more relaxed strategy. Tactics and methodical, Virgo-style planning will get you through this a lot better than in-the-moment flash decisions.


libra

Libra: 25-31 August 2014

Libra, what would you do about your money, house, flat, business, possessions or charity if you knew that any potential for conflict or friction would disappear on Saturday 13th September? And that all the weight in the atmosphere; all the heaviness and stuckness; would end on Tuesday 23rd December? This is exactly what your horoscope is promising, and it could make all the difference to the way you plot and plan, over the next few days. The conjunction between Mars and Saturn on Monday 25th August is hardly welcome by anybody. For you, though, it should become an excuse to go back to the drawing board if necessary, or even to begin a whole strategy. Like all Second House transits of your solar chart, this one is teaching you about your values. It is hammering home the precious qualities of people, possessions, properties or passions which you are gradually growing to realise are priceless to you. In 2015 and beyond, when at last life is back to normal and the pressure is off, you will come to value all these things so much more as a result, and get more from them. The most spiritual manifestation of this famously difficult financial cycle is the appreciation of soul commodities like integrity, humanitarianism, forgiveness, compassion, ethics, principles and so on – none of which can be bought and sold on Wall Street. Nevertheless, you will be glad to know you only have four more months of this cycle left, apart from a brief flashback in the middle of 2015. What else is going on now? A New Moon on Monday, to quote Duran Duran, which will launch you in a new direction in terms of the secrets you keep, or the invisible roles you play behind the scenes. We also have a Sun-Neptune opposition on Friday which lets you know what September will be about; primarily the need to stand back from your daily workload and your relationship with your body, and get a better view. Everything has been distorted in such a subtle way, and for so many months, that you are most unlikely to be totally clear on things. What the next few weeks will do, is give you eyes to see. Rather like adjusting to a new prescription with glasses or contact lenses, it may be too much at first. It may be hard to adjust. By October, though, your new vision will have triggered big changes.


scorpio

Scorpio: 25-31 August 2014

Scorpio, after Friday 29th August you will be in a position to fathom the realities about (or for) your children in a much more practical and clear-sighted way. This also applies to young relatives or godchildren. It most certainly applies to sexual relationships where pregnancy, adoption or step-parenting are possible outcomes. Finally, you may be experiencing this cycle through the world of babies, children or pre-adults on a professional level, or perhaps through a non-profit project. So what can you expect from September? Basically, the chance to drop anchor and even to get back onto dry land. You may not even be aware of just how unreal, literally, your life has become in relation to the next generation and all the issues it raises. This Neptune cycle can be subtle; it takes a few pointed wake-up calls to realise just how out of your depth you have swum, or how far you have drifted from the real world. Friday 29th August is the beginning of a necessary shift when you must do all it takes to keep it real (or get back to reality) with, or through, the babies, children or young adults who surround you, no matter if the connection is personal, professional or voluntary. Some other changes this week include the fresh start you are making with a friend or group. This is entirely welcome; it feels like the rebirth of an old friendship, the birth of a new friendship, or either the reinvigoration of an existing group commitment, or the start of a fresh one. I have left the headlines about Mars and Saturn in Scorpio until last, if only because it’s always rather onerous to write about these two horoscope factors! Yet there is nothing to fear about matters affecting your reputation, profile, style, shape, face and brand. By Christmas there will be relief and release. And even sooner, by September 13th any heat or tension surrounding the ‘me’ agenda will also be gone. So – knowing that – how might you cleverly and adroitly manage the situation you are dealing with, near Monday 25th?


sagittarius

Sagittarius: 25-31 August 2014

Sagittarius, the hard part about a Twelfth House Saturn transit is the fact that you cannot confide in anyone. It is like carrying the weight on your shoulders entirely alone, and that is very difficult. Why is this so solitary for you? Perhaps because it concerns a very great secret that you cannot share, not even with your best friend. Alternatively, the load you are dealing with concerns a part you are playing behind the scenes, that you are utterly aware of all the time – yet nobody else is! The good news is, in around three weeks’ time any tension associated with this secret or invisible role will vanish. And best of all, very close to your birthday, you will either see the secret wiped off the agenda; or it may remain, yet no longer bother you in any way at all. This also applies to a part you are playing without credit or recognition; near your birthday it will either end, or it may go on, yet in a way that does not concern you whatsoever. Moving through your horoscope this week we also find a New Moon in your sector of ambition, social status, success and achievement. Make a wish when you see that moon over your head, but better still, make some practical moves. Remember your luck is well and truly in, with any academic, educational, publishing, foreign, travel or internet-related matters. Perhaps you can merge your ambition with your luck, this week. The weekend approaches with a reminder that September is about long-overdue reality checks. Even though you could wish for an easier ride, you cannot complain about the long-term results of September’s enforced decisions about your family, house, home town, homeland, flat or household. The reality is, you have simply not understood how far from reality you have drifted. Hauling yourself back to the real world may feel uncomfortable for a few weeks, but you will end up blessing it.


capricorn

Capricorn: 25-31 August 2014

Capricorn, the New Moon which begins the week will launch a new phase for you as a traveller, student, teacher, internet creator, world citizen, publisher or writer. This is a straightforward New Moon in the detail-conscious and methodical sign of Virgo, so once you know what your list should contain, begin ticking the boxes. The other obvious issue near Monday concerns your ruling planet Saturn and his conjunction to Mars, in Scorpio, the sign which rules your social life, social media, old friendships and group commitments. It is very important that you do not buy into a situation where people act, rather than think. If you succumb, you could be stuck with the energy-suck for three more weeks. Undoubtedly, this is a difficult atmosphere to deal with. It may be specific friends or social acquaintances; it may be the dynamics of a team or association; it may be the hideous realities of Facebook. If a Mars-Saturn conjunction calls for anything, though, it calls for great timing. Remember, the heat won’t be there beyond 13th September. And that heavy, loaded atmosphere will be gone by Christmas Day. Knowing that, how might you now proceed? Because you’re sure as hell going to need some very well-crafted strategies about this friend, this frenemy – or this network. The only other thing to say about your chart right now is that you are up for a few weeks of reality checks about the internet, your phone, your computer, the media, publishing and all mediums for your ‘voice’ in all its forms. You will be woken up again and again, but it’s all to the good. Had you continued without any checks whatsoever, you might have drifted so far out, and so far away, that you may have gone right in over your head. Of course the internet in particular is an alternative reality but it may be time you extracted yourself from it, Capricorn.


aquarius

Aquarius: 25-31 August 2014

Aquarius, if the Mars-Saturn conjunction on Monday 25th August also happens to square your natal Sun, then this career issue is personal and it’s momentous. In all other cases, you certainly do have realities to deal with, in terms of your ambition, position and mission – yet no matter when your birthday falls, there are ways of coping. The first general rule with both these planets is to get the pace and timing right. If you lurch into action, that would be a mistake. If you are stuck fast (almost paralysed, like a possum in the headlights of a car) then that is also not useful. Somewhere between leaping into gear, and grinding your gears, you have to find the right way to push forward. It may help to know that the burden you feel will be gone at Christmas. And it may also help to know that the potential for conflict disappears in about three weeks. Now, think like a professional headhunter; a career advisor; a human resources manager. Then (perhaps) go beyond immediate questions about your chosen industry, field or role – and look at the broader questions of what success means to you. What does it mean to be a successful human being in 2014? Moving into other areas of your chart, the Virgo-Pisces axis, which rules your money, house, business, company, flat, charity and possessions is well and truly triggered. This goes into September, too, and you can expect a few weeks of intense questioning and challenges, which is massively overdue. Begin with the idea that what you own, earn or owe can certainly offer you an escape or outlet; you deserve that as much as anyone. If things have reached a point where they are so confused or confusing that the escapism is being replaced by a feeling of uncertainty or overwhelm, though, then use the next few weeks to contain and control what is going on. And to see clear at last.


pisces

Pisces: 25-31 August 2014

Pisces, your ruler Neptune is opposed by the Sun at the end of the week. You tend to cleave towards whatever Neptune offers, because you are an escape artist and define yourself by your various ways of avoiding the real world or evading reality. This is why so many Pisces people (especially the most brilliant and famous of your kind) are poets, film-makers, painters, actors and so on. At the moment, Neptune is in Pisces, your own zodiac sign, and the escape from normal, ordinary, mundane reality is actually yourself. You have been using your own face, name, shape, style, face and persona as the way out, and the way through, and although it probably began in quite an interesting and rewarding way, your horoscope suggests you must now rein things in. From this weekend, through to October, you must find a way to limit and control things, and unless you do this willingly, it may be that one incident after another will pull you up short, until you are forced to get real about the non-real (and the non-real, in this case, is you, you, you). What else is going on at the moment? The New Moon in Virgo suggests a brand new phase with (or for) your husband, wife, potential lover, or ex-partner. This also applies to work partners; past, present or future. And the Seventh House is also about enemies, rivals and opponents. What kind of new phase awaits? An entirely organic, natural, welcome one which has a feeling of rightness about it. The real challenge this week is well-known to you. How do you summon up yet more energy to deal with your travel, foreign, publishing or educational agenda? It may help to realise that any risk of conflict will vanish in about three weeks. And by the end of December you will have relief and release, from the toughest cycle in 29 years. Until then, use that famous Pisces ability to read hearts and minds. Your sixth sense is extremely useful in situations like this and if your antennae quiver and tell you that someone/something could be a problem, you are no doubt correct. Using intuition and your experiences in 2013 in particular, plot and plan your moves and neither stall, nor accelerate. Just drive.

Your Horoscope August 18 through 24

Astrologer’s Diary

Once in every 12 years Jupiter in the royal sign of Leo forms a conjunction with Venus, the planet of traditional marriage. This happens on Monday 18th August at 6.21am (London time) and points to a second honeymoon period for one regal couple, or perhaps one of the year’s most romantic announcements. Of course, Leo spells royalty across all dynasties; this could be about Princess Mary or Prince Harry (or for that matter what remains of the Monaco dynasty too). Elsewhere in the heavens there is a potent opposition from Mercury in Virgo to Neptune in Pisces on Tuesday 19th August at 4.40am. This combination is classically associated with confused and confusing media reports about anything viral and contagious, particularly if it’s carried through water or via droplets in the air. Virgo is the sign to associate with medical research and health and Pisces rules fluids and the dissolution of boundaries. Watch the media.

aries

Aries: 18-24 August 2014

Aries, Pluto in Capricorn is urging you to be more assertive (even to the point of being a slight control freak) about who and what is most crucial to you in career, university or non-profit terms. Perhaps things have now reached the stage where you must stand up for yourself and what matters most, or constantly feel propelled this way and that way, like a leaf in the breeze. The Jupiter-Venus conjunction on Monday augurs well for your relationship with that generation born 20 years or more after you; just keep smiling and follow the signs. This applies to projects which appeal to teenagers or twentysomethings (if you are over fifty ) or even to relationships which may result in pregnancy (if you are in your twenties or thirties). Everything is now abundantly possible.


taurus

Taurus: 18-24 August 2014

Taurus, you are basically at a point in your life where destiny has told you very sternly to take the reins and make things stick (and work) with your internet, foreign, travel, publishing, educational or academic agenda. Pluto can be pretty ruthless and unless you actually stop certain things in their tracks, you will continue to struggle with what feels like a situation you can never really get on top of! The irony, of course, is that all the tools and resources you require are around you. What else is important now? Clearly, you have so much in your favour with the family, house, homeland, home town, household or flat that all you have to do is follow the signposts and accept the help or fortunate twists of fate. This is part of a general reshaping and improvement for you, Taurus.


gemini

Gemini: 18-24 August 2014

Gemini, you are continuing to find your voice or your other best means of expression, and from little acorns, bigger things grow. Just keep an open mind and heart and welcome whatever (or whomever) comes your way. There are no accidents in astrology and if the last 1-2 weeks have coincided with a new way to be heard or read, take it further. You are not being pushy to do this; just responding to what others are quite instinctively seeking from you. The other interesting thing about your horoscope now is the house, the flat, the money, the possessions and/or the charity. Your chart suggests it’s time to be quite determined about staying in control or just clawing it back. Unless you make a concerted effort to do this, something or someone will always dictate terms. Just say no.


cancer

Cancer: 18-24 August 2014

Cancer, Pluto in your opposite sign of Capricorn is a very hard but potentially rewarding transit to go through. If you throw away your willpower and also your own ability to run your own life, then sooner or later, your former, current or potential partner (or conditions/people attached to them) ends up taking your power away. That feeling of not being able to own your own space or turf, psychologically, emotionally or sexually is pretty familiar by now, yet the deep irony is that every single thing you need to be on top (or get on top) is in front of you. Just take it and own it. The Jupiter-Venus match on Monday is about your money, house, flat, charity, business or possessions. It takes two to tango and this is like balancing rubies and potatoes in the scales and making it work.


leo

Leo: 18-24 August 2014

Leo, it’s been 12 years since Jupiter conjuncted Venus in your sign and it’s both rare and welcome to see matters of image, appearance, reputation or packaging become a matter for two people. It’s no longer just your issue; it is also his or hers, yet seldom have you been given so much scope. You may be looking for a solution or just something bigger and better, but The Wonderful World Of Me is a good place to be. The line-up in Capricorn this week, a most practical sign, encourages you to be utterly matter-of-fact about your lifestyle and your body. If you shrug your shoulders and pretend to be without power, the universe will make you feel just that. The trick with this cycle is to recognise the amazing resources and tools around you and use them to take the reins back.


virgo

Virgo: 18-24 August 2014

Virgo, if things with (or through) the children in your world have become rather bent out of shape, you need to be honest with yourself and admit that you have let things run on; instead of sticking to a successful formula you were creating a few weeks/months ago, you have let things slide. This also applies to babies, relationships which promise pregnancy or adoption, youth projects and anything from adolescent through young adult concerns. If you go on pretending that he/she/they/it is running your world then you are giving away the power that could change everything! The other key issue now is what is submerged, below the surface and quite unknown or unseen. Do you want some massive, overdue improvement or just a glittering horizon? Your choice.


libra

Libra: 18-24 August 2014

Libra, power is actually willpower and unless you use yours, the situation with your family, house, accommodation, flat, home town, household or homeland will continue to make you feel as if you have no say in what occurs. Of course this is a huge waste of an opportunity, as the whole time that you have been letting things slide in a particular direction, you were actually in possession  of just what you needed all along. The trick is appreciating that and actually using it to your total advantage. You might think you are problem solving, but you could actually be on the cusp of something far more potent, remarkable and life-changing, if you would only pursue this to its logical conclusion. The other interesting thing about your week? Your friend or group. Just say yes, yes, yes.


scorpio

Scorpio: 18-24 August 2014

Scorpio, great opportunity and fulfilment can only come when you build or mend a bridge with someone who is innately connected to your success, your life direction or your ambition. This was always going to be a matter for two people, even way back in mid July when the first glimpses of opportunity revealed themselves. You may be trying to repair something overdue for wholeness in your life, or just pursuing the biggest and best – but in all cases, around Monday you will see why two people can create potent alchemy together. The focus on Capricorn in your chart now also suggests that you have to be a lot more resolute and assertive with those who affect how you are heard and read, online and offline. It’s your Communication H.Q. and it belongs to you; take it on, fully.


sagittarius

Sagittarius: 18-24 August 2014

Sagittarius, the funniest things have occurred of late, giving you perhaps six weeks of odd turning points and subtle but important changes, all helping you to turn a corner with your life as a traveller, student, internet user, teacher, world citizen, publisher or writer. Jupiter, your ruler, has a way of forcing your hand and it may not be until you are well into the closing weeks of 2014 that you can actually see what was going on right now, back in August, and how it was pushing you in just the right direction. Sometimes you just have to let life, destiny and other people make the changes for you! The Pluto patterns this week also remind you to use your force of personality and your self-control to get the power back over the money, business interests, possessions, house, charity, flat and so on. Unless you actually own the control and stop pretending you don’t have any, you are going to continue to be blown around like an autumn leaf.


capricorn

Capricorn: 18-24 August 2014

Capricorn, with Pluto in your sign this week making strong aspects in your chart, you can finally summon up all the energy, focus, determination and concentration required to turn things around with your image or reputation. This also applies to your online profile, personal appearance and so on. The last few weeks have been truly challenging in terms of you sticking doggedly to a formula you know works for you. Instead you have thrown your hands up in the air and allowed something/someone to dictate terms. Only because you let it happen, though – no other reason! Now that you also have solutions, remedies, advantages and opportunities not possible in 12 years financially, perhaps it’s time to make a priority list and begin hitting it like Sir Donald Bradman.


aquarius

Aquarius: 18-24 August 2014

Aquarius, the Mercury -Neptune opposition this week is in your banking, salary, business, charity, taxation, possessions and cashflow zone. You may want to allow the moment to pass before doing any major sums or attempting any crucial paperwork. The presence of Jupiter in Leo suggests you are being handed certain thing on a plate when it comes to your former, current or potential partner. Even with enemies! Twists of fate, unlikely helpers, useful turning points created by you – and a great deal that you have just fallen into – all assists the changes. This is the very earliest stage of a big wave in your chart designed to utterly reshape the way things are with a special person. Even a dispute or conflict can benefit you when Jupiter conjuncts Venus, around Monday.


pisces

Pisces: 18-24 August 2014

Pisces, you appear to have let yourself flip-flop all over the place in the last few weeks and it may feel to you as if your social life, group commitment, old friend or new friend is disempowering you on some level. Nothing could be further from the truth; you have just given your power away , for whatever reason, and the irony is that you have seldom been in such a good position to use whatever/whomever is close by, to really reshape things very effectively. The Jupiter-Venus conjunction in Leo is also telling you to look at your lifestyle, daily workload, wellbeing, duty and service to others as a wholistic entity. In other words you cannot separate how well you feel physically from the hours you are putting in at work, university or as a volunteer. Fortunately the one person you need to treat this as a two-way street is making all the right noises near Monday. You two can take things so much further; the bluest sky is your biggest limit.

Your Horoscope August 11 through 17

Astrologer’s Diary

As we move towards the final quarter of 2014 Mars in Scorpio joins Saturn in Scorpio, the sign to be associated with big business, the sharemarket, taxation, the property market and the world economy. Saturn in Scorpio has accurately timed one of the most testing slowdowns in 29 years. This planet is linked to the archetype of the old Roman god Saturn who self-sabotaged like there was no tomorrow. He sucked the life force out of everything and everybody! Placed in Scorpio since the final quarter of 2012 you can see why the final quarter of 2014 is so important; it is the last stage. Joined by Mars, Saturn will now deliver green lights and red lights to the world, in terms of stop-start motion with the global economy. This takes in Wall Street but also issues like Bitcoin. We won’t really see the end of this phase until Christmas 2014 when at last Saturn moves out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius. Until then a great deal will be reshaped.

aries

Aries: 11-17 August 2014

Aries, you just don’t have to (or need to) handle the same ‘me’ issues in the same old way. Uranus in Aries, your own sign, is moving into a prime position in your chart, ahead of the famous Jupiter-Uranus trine, which will dominate the rest of this year. What does that mean? Basically, that a major solution or opportunity involving those 20 years younger than yourself (the next generation) will sit beautifully alongside the most exciting, thrilling possibilities for your name, brand, image, look, reputation or profile. I know that many Aries people will confirm pregnancies for this reason, yet there are many ways for you to manifest this happy destiny. This is a new season of growth and radical change. Don’t be afraid to be revolutionary in your approach to the ‘me’ issues.


taurus

Taurus: 11-17 August 2014

Taurus, you are proceeding happily towards a bigger and better home, a reshaped family life (with any issues eradicated), property gains, a big relocation to a superior area, a deeper and more rewarding connection to your home town or homeland – or a happier household. There is no stopping the process, all you have to do is keep following the guideposts. Alongside this new development, which peaks in August, but continues until August 2015, we also have a major new pattern involving Uranus in Aries in your chart. I know that you have been experimenting with whatever/whomever is so new, different, innovative, exciting and groundbreaking for a few years now – at least in terms of what is secret about yourself or your life, or deliberately behind the scenes (invisible). This now takes a fascinating turn as the planets in their courses shift in your favour. If nobody else can see it or even knows about it, you can just bet that this is where the new sense of space and possibility will come from. And Uranus can be very unusual; what follows is the last thing you may have expected.


gemini

Gemini: 11-17 August 2014

Gemini, the forthcoming trine from Jupiter in Leo (which rules your word power and way with images and the internet) and Uranus in Aries (which rules your friendships and group commitments) is stunning. It builds in slow stages and you are moving into the first phase of these at the moment. Let’s focus on Uranus in Aries most of all, as this is familiar to you – and yet not familiar. Your horoscope suggests that 2-3 years ago you can began experimenting with a new way to be part of a group; a different way to be a friend; a more exciting way to have a social life. This trend now picks up again in an entirely different direction and I would say that the old or new friend – or the old or new circle of people – which has a starring role in your life right now, is your key to freedom. If  you want to feel gloriously independent, with a sense of infinite possibility, then just explore the options with this person/these people. What develops in tandem with this is a project or plan so big in scope, so oozing with potential, so remarkably feelgood and positive – that you find it thoroughly irresistible.


cancer

Cancer: 11-17 August 2014

Cancer, we just had a Full Moon in Leo and Aquarius, and it stretched across the axis of your chart which rules your money, business, house, flat, possessions and charity interests. I suspect that whatever or whomever did not come together for you, is actually the core of something far bigger and better, in terms of solutions or opportunities to have more, or save more. Moving on from that story in your chart (fresh as you begin this new week) we come to the idea of Jupiter in Leo offering you answers and open doorways. I know that you went through one of the most confusing and confused financial cycles of your life a few years ago as Neptune passed through Aquarius and the noise distortion with your bank, company, property or good cause was just crazy. That was then, however, and this is now, and if there are any remaining problems, this Jupiter cycle can fix them. Onto Uranus in Aries! You define status and success your own way. And you’d better…because this cycle is about making it up as you go along. Inventing an exciting new world. Putting ‘Free’ on your C.V. first of all.


leo

Leo: 11-17 August 2014

Leo, you have spent what must seem like years experimenting wildly (or to quote The Smiths, Oscillating Wildly) with foreign travel, unfamiliar cultures and nationalities, the internet in general – and of course, study, teaching and publishing. You now find things ease into position with an organic flow that makes you realise the last 2-3 years played their part in your forthcoming success and happiness, in a way you did not really know at the time. Why do I say that? Because Uranus in Aries is behind this slow revolution in the way you travel, work with other nationalities and cultures, teach, study, write, publish and use the web. And Uranus in Aries is moving into a trine with Jupiter in Leo, your own sign, not possible for years. This week is part of the wider pattern of radical and exciting change. Any person or situation which cramped your style and prevented you, perhaps literally, from travelling in style (geographically or mentally) will not last. This new trend is about the expansion and growth of your brand, name, reputation, face, shape and persona. This co-exists beautifully with the revolution now unfolding in connection with your trips – and your head trips. Just follow the signs. Weirdly, thunder or lightning may be one!


virgo

Virgo: 11-17 August 2014

Virgo, you only get one trine from Jupiter in Leo to Uranus in Aries every few years. And maybe you need to be as old as Doctor Who to experience it. This year is so worth the wait, though, because even though new freedom and independence with your finances is coming very late, it can only be cherished. I have often said in the past, in this column, that you cannot put a price tag on being liberated. I know that bankers and advertisers would love us to believe that borrowing scads of money to be ‘successful’ in terms of property ownership or business success will make us happy. I could go on, but you know the rest. At some point in the last 1-2 years you have been blocked, restricted, trapped and confined with your cash, house, business, charity, flat or possessions in a way that has been like dull background noise. Fortunately that whine is to replaced with the bugle call of new freedom and it’s never been this easy to do things differently; to find some space; to get some oxygen. Uranus in Aries is about making your own revolution. What would you pay to have a brand new day?


libra

Libra: 11-17 August 2014

Libra, you are now approaching a peak moment on your journey with a particular former, current or potential partner. Alternatively with an enemy, opponent or rival. What is the peak? It is about new freedom, space and independence. To get an idea of what Uranus in Aries can do, just bear in mind this planet was discovered in the same year that the British lost the final battle to the Americans in their pursuit of revolution and liberty. In this same year, the first rumblings that would start the French Revolution occurred, and in Britain, the Industrial Revolution accelerated with new inventions that would change everything. There are some key words right there for your week. You can tattoo ‘revolution’ and ‘liberty’ and ‘new inventions’ on your heart and go forward. The new invention may be an emotional, sexual or psychological construction, rather than anything with cogs and wheels. Basically you are being told ‘Now or never’ by the universe in regard to this very important person in your life. Or perhaps about the institution of marriage, or divorce, or separation, or de facto relationships, or legal disputes (a very lucrative institution for the legal profession) and so on. Who wants to be locked inside the same old institution?


scorpio

Scorpio: 11-17 August 2014

Scorpio, you only get one trine from Uranus in your daily workload sector to Jupiter in your success sector, in this particular way, once in your life. It is building in your horoscope as I write this and of course you can sense something in the air. Just follow the signs. As I have mentioned before, thunder and lightning may be one of them. Astrology is about synchronicity and Uranus is associated with electrical storms. Jupiter is associated with thunderbolts. Put them together, as they build in your chart, and any number of weather displays; apparently ‘chance’ photographs on your Twitter feed; book jackets; AC/DC albums and more will appear! Beyond symbols and signs, though, let us look at the facts. You are being given the most stunning solution in years to any career, university or non-profit role issues. Over and above that, you are being shown the gateway to the biggest and best. All you really have to do this week is keep smiling and nodding. But be radical, Scorpio. As a fixed sign you can resist change. Well, don’t do it in 2014. Embrace or begin this revolution. Free!


sagittarius

Sagittarius: 11-17 August 2014

Sagittarius, a number of people born under your sign will find themselves at the heart of a Grand Trine soon – a splendid display which looks like a pyramid in your horoscope. Even if your birthday does not qualify you for that spectacle (which makes everything and everybody possible in the most stunning way), you still stand to gain from what is happening in the heavens this week. Basically you are being told to forget the past, ditch the old way of doing things, and be radical. Just look at your relationship with the world of babies, children or younger people in general to see why. Beyond that, there are the relationships which bring this generation (born 20 years or more after you) closer to you. The connection may be obvious (your son or daughter) or more professionally or philanthropically based (a job involving younger people or a non-profit role with them). In all cases, though, you know when you are being told to take a radical or revolutionary stance. Someone or something has blocked your way. Cramped your style. Confined you when you should have been breaking new ground and thrilling yourself and others with a particular way of operating – as a parent, potential parent, aunt, uncle, godparent, grandparent and so on. This also extends to any career or charity role with the young. The person or situation which locked you down for so long is frankly, no longer an issue.


capricorn

Capricorn: 11-17 August 2014

Capricorn, we just had a Full Moon across the money, property, possessions, business and charity axis of your chart. What (or who) did not add up is actually part of your greater reward later, so do not spend too long frowning over the lack of wholeness or perfection about the numbers, or the other situation which failed to satisfy you, or others. In actual fact this is going to be at the core of the one, big, welcome solution or opportunity you deserve. Moving beyond this, let us now look at your family, house, flat, home town, homeland and/or household. I know that life has been one long experiment in this area for a long time; to the point where you feel as if every month brings another discovery or breakthrough. What you have really needed all along is a big shift, though. A big shift which actually rumbles through the earth and moves mountains in your life. A proper change! This is now imminent and you would be crazy to resist it. Did you know how confined, trapped and restricted you were by a particular person, situation or place? Maybe not, but the universe does. And it’s time to be free.


aquarius

Aquarius: 11-17 August 2014

Aquarius, your ruling planet Uranus is slowly moving into a trine with Jupiter in your opposite sign of Leo, which rules your former, current and potential partners. Leo also rules your enemies, opponents and rivals. As you already sense, and maybe have plain-sight evidence for, this is an amazing time of improvement, problem-solving and beyond that, staggering opportunities which will become real for you by 2015. Beyond the situation with him or her, though, your horoscope suggests it is time to look at the way you are heard and read. Communication and information are the state of your nation, as we go into the middle of August. You are being asked to take a wildly radical step towards thrilling freedom and independence, no matter if this is about the internet, your computer skills, publishing and writing, foreign languages, multimedia projects, songs (and singing) or face-to-face talking. Of course I know you have experimented before, 2-3 years ago, and very successfully too. But since then some big, lumbering obstacles and restrictions have held you back. You are so used to living with these blockages that you don’t even notice them any more. But take heart. The Universe has noticed. And it wishes to remove them.


pisces

Pisces: 11-17 August 2014

Pisces use this week or lose it forever. I’m talking about your money, apartment, house, business,charity and/or possessions. You are now on the brink of a decision that would liberate you from the person, situation, place or organisation that restricts you so much, you may not even be aware of how deeply the tentacles go. It is easy to be scared of a revolution. The Americans were, at heart, in 1781 – who cannot fail to be scared when the past is about to be sheared away, and the new world has to be invented every single day? Yet look at the United States of America now. Then hold the image of the Statue of Liberty in your mind. You may even have synchronicity (meaningful coincidences) about her this week – or other images of freedom, revolution and liberty in your life. It is all a cosmic coincidence designed to make your mind up. Even if you have to totally reject a person, organisation or situation which has been a part of everything for so long, what do you (and they) in all honesty have to lose, except the staleness of a situation which is unnatural. By that, I mean it is against nature. It is against the life force of thrilling change and new growth which we all need, rich or poor, to actually value life way beyond cash or jewellery.

Your Horoscope August 4 through 10

Astrologer’s Diary

We have a Full Red Moon on Sunday 10th August at 7.09pm in London (adjust for your location). It takes place when the Sun falls at 18 Leo 02 and the Moon is directly opposite at 18 Aquarius 02. This Full Moon is especially important for Australia  because of its military nature. Who is with Australia and who is against her? Very close to Monday 11th August, Australia is in an extremely uncomfortable, but useful position, with her allies and enemies. Why it is useful? Because everything is revealed, no matter if we are talking old Axis of Evil problems, or the special relationship with America and Great Britain. What else is happening in the world horoscope this week? On Tuesday 5th August at 5.11pm Saturn in Scorpio trines Chiron in Pisces. More will be added to the growing stories about paedophile networks and the tragedy of child sexual abuse and cover-ups. Why? Because Chiron in Pisces translates as ‘outrageous secret behaviour’ and Saturn in Scorpio translates as ‘reality about sex, power and money.’ The good news? By Christmas the detoxing is mostly over.

aries

Aries: 4-10 August 2014

Aries, you are now going to examine your relationships with babies, children and teenagers (maybe young adults, if you are beyond 50) with more depth and detail. I would also add any professional or voluntary role involving a younger generation to this category, and of course, the relationships which could bring pregnancy or adoption. Close to Monday 4th, Friday 8th and the Full Red Moon on Sunday 10th you will be shown exactly what needs to change, in order to get your happy ending. And there will be one – Jupiter, the planet which fixes problems and brings big opportunities, is now in the horoscope zone which rules legacies – in your case, this is the legacy of your personality, spirit, character and essence which you leave to those who come after you (those born 20 years or more after you). What else is happening this week? The Saturn-Chiron trine on Tuesday 5th August really puts the money, house, business, apartment, charity or precious possessions in sharp perspective for you. You only have five months of the waiting games and obstacles to go, Aries, but you also need to be honest with yourself. Is the coping method you’ve been using lately the right one? Should it be changed? Even shelved?


taurus

Taurus: 4-10 August 2014

Taurus, you really need the events of this week to get the optimum result with your house, family, apartment, household, home town or homeland (maybe in combination). You are in a stunning position not possible for 12 years when you can add light, space or room to your existing home. When you can fix family issues or welcome happy new additions to the family circle. When you can deepen your relationship with your place in the world, no matter if it’s San Francisco or Sydney. In order to get there from here, you need to examine every detail and deal with the need for creative solutions. I think very close to Friday 8th August and Sunday 10th August are the turning points, so perhaps it’s a family get-together or an event involving your household which is the trigger. Of course, the weekend is when we buy or sell property, move home or inspect new places to rent. Scope out everything and everybody with an invisible microscope in your mind, because you need to be totally ready for Sunday 10th August-Monday 11th August when solutions will be required. What you get in return is the most fantastic result, Taurus, so please do not begrudge the time and energy your people or place calls for.


gemini

Gemini: 4-10 August 2014

Gemini, if your multimedia project, web venture, social media, debate, speech media involvement, book – or street mime performance (I am not joking) – is going to be as wonderful as your horoscope, suggests, please read carefully. Despite all the issues this week, you are going to find that the next seven days refines what you are trying to say, sing, capture or write, so that rather like a rough diamond, it is enhanced by the cutting process. There may be an even bigger role which uses your voice, across all mediums or media; maybe you just became a voice coach. I am absolutely sure that conditions near Friday through Sunday will push you, pressure you and prod you. However, that way lies greatness. The other issue I need to mention is Chiron in Pisces, in your zone of achievement and ambition near Tuesday 5th August. I mention this because no matter if your ‘voice’ matters in a career or university context – or purely in your spare time – the most satisfying accomplishments are not always necessarily professionally recognised. However destiny has placed you, though, I suspect this is one of those crossroads when you can either be a maverick or a mouse.Maverick is an old word from American history which talks about branding, versus refusing to be branded. I think your punk rock moment just arrived Gemini.


cancer

Cancer: 4-10 August 2014

Cancer, I look at your horoscope near Friday 8th and Sunday 10th August and I see a Full Moon cutting across the axis of your financial, business, property, charity, shopping and selling horoscope. You are ruled by the Moon so a Full Moon (and this is a Red Moon) affects you far more profoundly than the other signs of the zodiac. You can expect a crossroads of the best possible kind. A crossroads that you benefit from, no matter if you want to eliminate debt or increase your money, or your ‘cash in kind’ assets. One of the year’s most significant letters, calls, e-mails, media reports or meetings will take place very close to Friday 8th if not actually on the day. For the most satisfyingly happy long-term results, look beyond the numbers to the meaning on a soul level. This is about feeding your value system. What you will and will not sell out for. What you consider (or whom you consider) to be priceless in your life. What else in this insanely important week? Chiron in Pisces. Chiron is the maverick and punk rocker of astrology. He points to audacious behaviour. What Gen Y might call an ermagerd moment and I would call Totally Slits* Very close to Tuesday 5th and Thursday 7th I believe you will be tempted to jump the shark in connection with your trip, foreign connection, website, book or course.

*The Slits. One of the best punk rock bands in history. You think Miley Cyrus is outrageous? My dears, she’s a fraud.


leo

Leo: 4-10 August 2014

Leo, it’s all about you again. You, you, you. There’s a bit of You near Monday 4th August, another bit of You near Friday 8th August, and yet more You on the weekend of 9th and 10th August. It all works for you. Even when it’s confronting. Why does it all work for you? Because you are in the best cycle in 12 years for self-promotion, body and beauty priorities, internet profiling, publicity and this is key – the restoration of your reputation. I’ll give you a concrete example of the last one. Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky. Both Leo. I am writing this from a hotel room in Dubai on 7th July, so one month ago as you read this, but just watch the news this week, because what is happening in the Bill-Monica show (redemption at last) is also happening for you. I don’t doubt that this new forward push of yours, the big relaunch and image reshape, is going to be demanding. There are lots of challenges near Sunday 10th, okay? But it’s so worth it. Now, the other issue in your horoscope this week is your money, apartment, business, house, charity or precious possessions. Near Tuesday 5th and Thursday 7th you will be very tempted to do what ‘they’ say is impossible, unthinkable, unprecedented. Who cares? You certainly don’t. My only caveat is, please keep it real. Keep an anchor grounding you in the real world or you could end up seriously lost.


virgo

Virgo: 4-10 August 2014

Virgo, very close to Friday 8th and Sunday 10th August you will be consumed by a world nobody else can see. It is rather like the space explored by Jacques Cousteau or Steve Irwin. Submerged. Something big and wonderful is bubbling under, but because it requires tremendous secrecy from you (even your best friend can’t probe this one) or the most gifted kind of puppeteering (nobody can see you, hidden away above the stage, pulling the strings) it’s a peculiar situation for you. All I can say is, do whatever it takes, even if you have to creep around like Ian Fleming (he worked for British Intelligence before he created James Bond) or operate out of sight, like the people on the end credits of Hollywood films. I am absolutely sure your journey will be complicated, full of obstacles and cross-currents, but I also knows this is the greatest thing in your life all year. And not just this year, but the first half of 2015 as well. What else is going on? Well, I really should have said this first, but you so need to focus time and mental energy on your former, current or potential partner. Also your great enemy, rival or opponent. Very close to Tuesday and Thursday you will be offered a clear choice. You can either cross the line or stay behind it. You can either move the goalposts or walk away from the game. There is a great Billy Bragg song called ‘Moving the Goalposts’ in which he talks about two lovers staying up all night effectively changing the rules. If you move the goal posts with this crucial man or woman, then the game will never be the same. No pressure.


libra

Libra: 4-10 August 2014

Libra, you chose really well when you let particular friends or groups into your life. You will see why in the final four days of this week, and perhaps as late as Monday 11th August. Despite the imperfect nature of what is going on, just remember that it’s the rough edges and loose ends which make for great art. And in many ways your friendship or group commitment is a work of art, one which is created with your own famous talent for fairness, for balance, for diplomacy. This is also the gift that goes on giving, Libra, so pour as much time and energy into the discussion, texts or e-mails as required. Some works of art are classic. They look that way from the second they are created. I think this particular alliance or tribal/team involvement falls into this category, so don’t worry about what  you have to solve, fix or compromise over by Monday 11th. This is worth every breath you take, every move you make. Moving right along to other fascinating horoscope trends – your lifestyle, daily workload, work ethic and body has to be right up there. Everything is connected in astrology. Mind, body, work, spirit – you can’t separate them. If you have personal planets in Virgo it’s an even bigger deal for you. Whatever your horoscope, very close to Tuesday and Thursday I think you are ready to shrug your shoulders and say ‘WTF’ (or whatever works for you; Shakespeare can be very good). You’re not in this to play safe, you’re in this to experiment, explore, escape. My only caution is – what impact will this really have on your body? Okay, lecture over.


scorpio

Scorpio: 4-10 August 2014

Scorpio, I have been working as an astrologer for most of my professional life, but I have never seen anything like your success horoscope right now. Very close to Friday 8th and Sunday 10th, maybe as late as Monday 11th, you will be handed the kind of choices about your career, your life as a student – or as a volunteer – which can only come along every 12 years. If you know your horoscope and you have the Sun in Scorpio at 18 degrees, then it’s deeply personal too. No matter what your chart looks like, take on all the issues and make them work for you. Because they will. And you deserve the biggest and best, and it’s right here in front of you, ready to take all the way through August 2015. On a pure lifestyle note, let’s just say you are also being offered liberation and never mind your work ethic, your body will thank you for it. Moving right along to the earlier part of the week, it’s all about your son or daughter. Your young relative or godchild. A younger demographic (much younger) in your career. A part-time project or interest which involves a younger generation. You don’t have to go along with this tidal wave of change, but if you surf somewhere you’re not supposed to go (or apparently ‘can’t’ go) you will end up taking the ripcurl of the month. Only you can make the choice. But hang onto your leg rope and don’t lose sight of the shore.


sagittarius

Sagittarius: 4-10 August 2014

Sagittarius, if you know your chart and you have the Sun at 18 Sagittarius, what happens close to Sunday 10th or Monday 11th August is a defining moment for you. Whatever your horoscope, the second half of this week shows amazing potential for your relationship with another region or country, or its citizens – or culture. Depending on your personal chart, I think you are well on the way to emigrating, ambitious exporting, major global networking online, or the pursuit of other cultures and histories so different to your own. Of course, you can play this horoscope any way you wish, but I would suggest that you keep on trucking, even when you hit inner conflicts or outer-world obstacles. That’s part of the achievement and your trip, move, web related venture, qualification, course or book is worth every minute of your time, because it will add to your life in ever-increasing and wonderful ways, right through August 2015. As a side note, I should mention that your belief system or philosophy (anything from astrology through to atheism) will also deepen in meaning and importance as an add-on. The other story this week? It just has to be your family, household, apartment, house, home town and/or homeland. What happens near Tuesday 5th and Thursday 7th is so tempting. And by this stage, you’ve already had a lot of practise at getting away with what you’re not supposed to get away with! Just ask yourself – where will this take me? I have no doubt at all that you can have your punk rock moment, but are you Sid Vicious or Siouxsie Sioux?


capricorn

Capricorn: 4-10 August 2014

Capricorn, what is under discussion, online or in the mail on Friday 8th August (or very close to it) has you looking at the money, house, business, apartment, charity or precious possessions with intense and happy focus. This follows on from the numbers or facts which were on your radar, very close to Monday 4th August. By Sunday 10th and Monday 11th, you will no doubt feel as if the inner conflicts or real-world issues are pulling you like the tides. This strong tidal feeling is to your advantage, though. Without it, you would not be doing the real maths, and the real maths is about your values. Your principles and ethics have a price. Integrity costs. It is also true that you cannot put a price on soul or spirit commodities like freedom, self-respect, compassion and so on. People and animals in your life are most definitely priceless. And then there’s the material world! In all cases I think you can have your soul’s purchase, and be deeply content, but first you must fire walk with me, all the way into early next week. What comes out of this is the gift that goes on giving, Capricorn, because Jupiter is in your zone of values, finance, property, charity and business through August 2015. What else matters now? The internet, the media, publishing, private writing, spoken-word pursuits or singing. Near Tuesday and Thursday you get to push the boat out. How far out should the boat go? Put it this way. It’s not on most shipping maps. Just don’t get lost at sea, please.


aquarius

Aquarius: 4-10 August 2014

Aquarius, your partner is just as important as the process surrounding him or her. I would also venture that the partner you loved and lost is also no less crucial than the journey you take, because of his/her influence. It may also be the case that you have a potential partner waiting in the wings, and have focussed on his/her personality as the key to everything, when in actual fact this person is just an agent for change in your life. (If you have an enemy, rival or opponent I will get to this person at the end of the paragraph). Basically, no matter if you find yourself staring down the lens at your former, current or potential partner near Monday 4th, Friday 8th, Sunday 10th, the path you are taking is worth every bridge you have to cross. The biggest bridge of all will come near Sunday 10th, Monday 11th at the Full Moon (look overhead and you will see it). You can double that message if you know your personal horoscope and you have the Sun at 18 Aquarius. Whatever your chart looks like, take the trip! Handle the obstacles! See where life takes you, because ultimately, for you and he (or you and she) it will take you somewhere utterly rewarding in every way. Aquarius, I suspect that the money, house, apartment, business, charity or precious possessions will be a big part of the story with this person (in about one in four cases) so if this sounds like you, remember to keep your feet on the ground and keep it real, especially if you are signing things. Neptune can be a very confused and confusing influence near Thursday 7th so get second opinions. P.S. If your enemy, rival or opponent is the issue this week, be aware that you stand to gain from the separation or the conflict. That may sound strange but I have learned to trust astrology over the years and when you have Jupiter transiting your solar Seventh House, no matter how tough that Full Moon is this weekend, remember that you gain from pain. Or you gain from The Pain, if this person has a name. I am sure he/she does (among your friends) but by jingo, you stand to benefit.


pisces

Pisces: 4-10 August 2014

Pisces, figuring out your emerging new lifestyle takes time, but it is worth all the effort. The news, conversation or e-mail near Friday 8th is a turning point, and that’s the understatement of the year. Beyond what this could do for your work ethic (suddenly, work becomes as meaningful as play) there is another reward. It rests with your temple – your body – no matter what condition, your condition is in. Unless you have a horoscope with many Virgo factors, or a loaded Sixth House, I am sure your physical being matters far less to you than everything else in the world. Yet, with Jupiter in your Sixth House for the first time in 12 years, I can only begin to guess at the discoveries you are making about what you eat and drink, how this affects your mood – and especially sport, yoga, meditation and so on. At a deeper level, and also a deeper cellular level, there may be incredible new insights of a medical or alternative health nature. Pisces, I mention all this possible reward, because in order to get the lifestyle that you deserve, you have to cross a river near Sunday 10th and Monday 11th August. It’s a big river to wade over, but you will do it – and in the process you will move into new territory which is wonderful in every way, no matter if your priority is your job, course, volunteer role or how your body serves your mind. Why do I keep banging on about your body? Because you also have Chiron and Neptune in Pisces this week, making waves on Tuesday 5th and Thursday 7th, and as your image or appearance is half the story now (you are using the way you look and appear, to experiment with life) then the dots join up. It’s Me Time again! But it all works for you.
