August 24 - September 23
Today's Horoscope for Monday August 21st
The solar eclipse in the sign before yours is rather hidden away, so you will have to clear quiet space for yourself to be aware of what really is beginning now. Maybe it will just be an insight into the past or yourself, which gives you the key to how to change the future. This will be a theme for the months ahead. The main thing to remember is you need to be yourself. There's no point in compromising to fit in with other people, or holding back.
The Weekly Outlook from 21st August
New Moons are always the start of something new and this one is a Solar Eclipse so it will be significant. You need to put your wholehearted attention behind the scenes into whatever you want to put into place over the next year. Leaping recklessly into telling other people exactly what you think of them may be all too tempting but it could backfire. It's just not very easy at the moment to moderate what you are trying to say.
Your Monthly Horoscope for August
Taking it easy is never your way being the restless sign of service, work and practicality. Yet the Leo Sun till the 22nd, amplified by the Solar Eclipse, hints you need time out to ponder on highly personal matters, get the past into perspective, and not be overly impulsive. Looking after health and fitness is also part of the equation with the Lunar Eclipse on the 7th falling in Aquarius. Getting the balance right between mental and physical vigour will speed you through the time ahead. Just know the timing isn't right for getting projects kick started or being too pro-active. Your moment will come into next month. Luckily affectionate friends will be around with encouragement and compliments. Money may be sailing out of the door as you decide to treat yourself. Try not to throw money around to impress or be too reckless, especially early on. Once your birthday Sun clicks in for the final days, you'll be raring to go, finding your energy and confidence rising.
and Next Month's Horoscope for September
You'll be stepping out boldly, reenergised and revitalised, prepared to make a statement and be noticed. Your birthday Sun and Mars will put you into a high-octane mood, so you'll be sweeping obstacles to one side and not taking no for an answer. Close partners may be vague or elusive, not sticking to their end of the bargain. But there'll be little point in fuming. Just leave them to their own devices and be happy to forge ahead with your own plans for the time being. Your presence out of the social scene won't go unnoticed around the 9th so you'll be making the most of your ability to influence those close. Emotionally you'll be playing your cards close to your chest for three weeks, pampering yourself in the few quiet moments. There will be practical or family matters to tackle towards mid month. Do your duty and be responsible and then you'll be off again. You'll be more outgoing after the 20th, taking care over your appearance and finding new admirers circling around. The Libra Sun will focus your mind on improving your finances and there could be a lucky break towards the 28th.
2017 Year Ahead
Always a self-sufficient sign, you will be focussing more than usual on relationships of all varieties in your life and asking yourself what can be done to improve them. At times your significant other will seem inaccessible or preoccupied so you'll have to tread gently and be forgiving, since you won't always know what you want your commitments to be either. See where you can share more spiritual or artistic interests and you'll find you connect better.rnAt home you'll be working hard to get everything in ship shape order and pondering on what sort of constructive changes you can make to bring you more security and stability. If there are any family tensions, having calm heart to heart chats to flush them out into the open will get them cleared out of the way.rnOut on the social scene you'll be making a few waves, turning on your charismatic charm at parties and being possessive of attention. Just try not to be too controlling with loved ones since it may push them away. Lighten up and have fun, realising that you too will enjoy your moments of freedom when you can kick over the traces.rnMoney should be flowing through more easily with Jupiter in Libra for nine months, though you'll be spending liberally as well so may not end up with much surplus. Just be aware that there will be unexpected expenses and not everything will flow along smoothly. So keep some aside for sudden emergencies.rnFrom October your everyday routines will liven up considerably. Suddenly you'll see that what was holding you back wasn't bad luck but too narrow an outlook. As you take your blinkers off you'll suddenly spot all manner of opportunities for making new contacts. Your magic way with words will win you new admirers and quite a few discussions.
