The Center for the New Age is pleased to present
your Free Weekly Horoscope for August 11 – August 17, 2019
Mercury enters Leo (August 11 – August 29) putting the focus of information, news and discussions on entertainment and the connection of families. This is the time when many kids are turning to, or away from, family in an effort to find answers. They seek answers with which they can live, answers with regard to determining self identify as well as survival skills. When Mercury is in Leo, the mind establishes, reaffirms and maintains a self-created identity. Self-expression and fortitude will be more evident in conversation.
Full Moon in Aquarius on August 15 enlivens our senses with the need to apply clarity and definition. The moods of the day are likely to be blanketed in bizarre and unusual occurrences, and often focus on modern technological breakthroughs and invention. People may see idealistic and generous in some respects of this lunar expression, or out of control and downright unrealistic in other respects of this full lunar expression of Aquarius.
Free Weekly Horoscope for your Sign
Aries: Is what you are currently doing reflective of your soul’s intent, or is it more about doing what is expected of you? Sometimes we can find ourselves living lives, doing jobs, or being in relationships that serve a purpose but that don’t reflect who we are at the soul level. Your challenge under the approaching Full Moon on August 15 will be to consider whether you are expressing your true self and whether your current goals are motivated by the joy in your heart or unresolved patterns from the past. If the latter, the Full Moon will bring the problem to light and help you to shed anything which has run its course.
Taurus: While much of your time and energy is likely to be taken up with family matters or being engaged in things with your home life, the Full Moon on August 15 will call your attention to your direction in life. The focus might be on your career and ambitions or an avenue of life you haven’t yet experienced. Expect the way forward to be illumined by the end of the week, when it should be much easier to make progress or to release whatever has been weighing you down.
Gemini: With the approaching Full Moon in your beliefs area on August 15, the importance of your attitude continues, and toward the end of o the week, it could become perfectly clear where you might have been holding yourself back or what you need to do next. Now is the time to think big and to stretch your sense of possibility. While you shouldn’t be overly optimistic or count your chickens before they’ve hatched, there is a strong likelihood that by aiming high, good results will follow suit.
Cancer: The financial theme continues and the Full Moon on Thursday is likely to bring matters to the forefront. It may become apparent, for example, that what you need isn’t more money to buy more things but rather to make the most of what you have. Having said that, if you need to improve a situation, you have all the tools at your disposal. You might need to negotiate a better deal, get motivated to generate more of whatever you need, earn to sing your own praise or make more of your talents. And perhaps that’s what your current situation is really calling for: to make more of what you already have – a talent, a situation, your home, or a possession.
Leo: Relationships take center stage this week as a Full Moon builds and peaks on Thursday. An issue or situation with someone is likely to reach a turning point, and whatever you invested in a particular relationship can be harvested this week. If the results aren’t good, take this as a sign that you need to develop closer connections or to allow the other person to have a little more attention. Ultimately, this is a week in which you can deepen your connections and enjoy happier relationships.
Virgo: Work, health and daily life – these are the areas to focus on as a Full Moon develops and brings fruition to your efforts. If there is room for improvement, part of the solution may be to rest more, engage in quiet time, and contemplate your nightly dreams to observe whether there are any recurring themes or obvious signposts. By tuning in to your inner self and following the intuitive prompts, you can apply these insights to your daily existence, which will then start to take better shape.
Libra: If you find yourself swimming against the tide, especially toward the end of the week when a Full Moon occurs in your zone of fun and creativity, it might be better to put your work aside, kick off your shoes and go enjoy yourself. The key to your well-being this week is spontaneity. If the world seems to want to take you down a route different from the one you had planned, go with it. You might be pleasantly surprised. When a friend calls and invites you to lunch but you have a ton of work to do, think twice before saying no. We all need little refreshments of he spirit, and this week, you will get the chance to do that. All you have to do is ask yourself: “Does this sound like fun?” If it does, don’t worry about the logistics; somehow the important stuff will still get done.
Scorpio: The planets are currently encouraging you to move forward. This is one of those times in your life when it will be easier to progress and make things happen. Conversely, things may happen naturally and all you have to do is go along with it. The Full Moon on August 15, however, offers a break from the external focus and invites you to return to home base for a breather, so this is a perfect time to enjoy the fruits of your labors especially domestically, making this a good week to enjoy family and home comforts. Alternatively, if there is a conflict brewing, then the Full Moon will bring matters to a head and enable you to resolve whatever has been bugging you.
Sagittarius: With Jupiter in your sign and a cluster of planets in your sphere of adventure, this is most definitely a time to push out of your comfort zone and try something new. The energies are perfect for travel, study and anything else that enables you to broaden your horizons. You could find yourself on a quest for a more meaningful life, and you shouldn’t be deterred from making the necessary changes. However, you need to be watchful of taking on more than you can handle or falling prey to a fanciful notion that has no basis in reality. The trick is to decipher what gives you a sense of meaning and what feels real and doable, and then go and do it.
Capricorn: The transformation theme continues, and it may be helpful to review your life and decide what needs to go and what needs to be reworked. Sometimes we get rid of things when a little TLC would bring the renewal that we are searching for. Sometimes, though, an object or a situation has passed its sell-by date and needs to be released. Whether it’s an aspect of you that’s become outdated or a situation you’re involved in, the time is ripe for some sort of overhaul. Think of it as a detox for your life.
Aquarius: It might seem as though things are stacked against you this week as the Moon grows full in your sign, but that is largely an illusion. Be careful that you don’t blow things out of proportion. Instead of worrying about your woes, put your energy into helping others with their problems, and that might help put things into perspective for you. That’s not to say that you should avoid the limelight, for this could be a time when the attention is on you and a little bit of self-promotion will help you to progress. Just be mindful not to get embroiled in negative emotional states that have little basis in reality.
Pisces: As the Moon grows full in your zone of rest on August 15, it may become apparent that you would benefit from a little time out. Life may be busy, but too much activity and too many demands can take their toll. By simplifying your life and removing the chaos – maybe your drawers are bursting with clutter, you can’t see the bottom of your wardrobe, your accounting system is all over the place, or your itinerary is overly stressful – you will gain energy and a more tranquil state of mind. Your health and well-being are paramount this week, so pay attention to any signals of discontent from your body, mind, or spirit to remove the root cause. Once you’ve done that, your body and your life in general will flow more harmoniously.
