Weekly Horoscope August 6 to 12, 2018

Monday August 6

  • 7:27 pm – Venus enters Libra
  • 7:27 pm – Sun square Jupiter is like a double-edged sword. It can make you feel extremely confident, proud, lucky and optimistic. The manner in which you express your exuberance is critical in determining the result, which can range from good fortune and success, to loss and embarrassment. The best way to handle this weekly horoscope is to show respect, moderation and discipline. Don’t take on too many projects as this would end up wasting your energy and getting you nowhere in a hurry.

Tuesday August 7

  • 12:49 pm – Uranus Retrograde 02 ♉ 33 in aspect to a number of planets which suggests problems affecting your love life or finances this weekly horoscope will test your patience. However, there are solutions to every problem. Open mindedness and flexibility will lead to creative breakthroughs and a reinvigorated personal life.
  • 8:32 pm – Venus trine Mars increases you desire for social contact and enjoyment. This is one of the better weekly horoscopes for dating because your softer loving side balances out your raw sexual desire. Thus you can be direct without coming on too strong. You will genuinely be interested in friendship not just for sex but for companionship as well.

Wednesday August 8

  • 0:00 am – Moon enters Cancer
  • 10:05 pm – Sun conjunct Mercury 16 ♌ 27 puts the focus on your thinking and communications, making this a very busy time mentally. Your mind will be on the ball which favors lots of interactions, clearing paperwork and bills, receiving and sending letters and emails, and short trips around town. Mercury rules communication, thinking patterns, rationality and reasoning. Also primary and secondary education, your neighborhood, siblings, cousins, short distance transport, news and information.

Thursday August 9

  • 9:33 pm – Venus square Saturn can add stress to intimate relationships due to negative feelings, distance or other relationships problems. Most of these hindrances will stem from your own fears or criticisms, but you may face the same from others. Basically, you are not so fun to be around for this day or so. To maintain harmony in relationships, it would be better to spend some time alone, but don’t ignore the affections and love of others either. Putting in the extra effort will reduce the risk of relationship dramas.

Friday August 10

  • 0:17 am – Moon enters Leo

Saturday August 11

  • 2:31 am – Mercury square Jupiter creates high hopes for the future which makes this a good weekly horoscope to make plans while you have this positive and broad outlook. Jupiter is a fortunate planet, so this does mean that the potential tests and challenges of the square aspect are reduced somewhat. While you will have a widely encompassing view or your position at the moment, it will be important to focus on the smaller details. This is one of the drawbacks of this otherwise fortunate transit. A lack of concentration, or inability to focus, may lead to some errors of judgement or mistakes.
  • 5:57 am – Solar Eclipse at 18 ♌ 10 is mainly influenced by a conjunction to Mercury retrograde. The major themes of this weekly horoscope will be thinking, contemplation, deliberation, discussion and debate. The August 2018 solar eclipse with challenging aspects to Jupiter and Pluto suggests disagreements and arguments about ideas and beliefs about power and control issues between people, groups of people and nations. Asteroid Pallas conjunct the eclipse will focus debate on feminism and politics.
