The Tarot cards used in the weekly horoscope come from the The Original Rider Waite Tarot Pack by Arthur Edward Waite, illustrated by Pamela Colman Smith. [1] One card is randomly selected for each horoscope sign. The deck has all the major arcana but I have taken out card number XIII. All of the minor arcana cards are included.

Weekly Horoscope August 20 to 26, 2018

Tuesday August 21

  • 0:00 am – Moon enters Capricorn
  • 6:51 pm – Sun quincunx Mars represents some imbalance between your identity and your desires. What you consciously want to do does not always match up with inner desires. Once conscious awareness of the competing energies is realized then the initial irritation caused can be channeled into fulfillment from helping other people. This is a karmic aspect which sometimes relates to past experiences in war or sex which is relieved by balancing personal desires and selfless service.  This aspect also adds charismatic appeal, a sexy spark to the personality.

Your keen perceptive skills means that you can better understand studies of science or the occult like astrology. You will feel like trying sometime new, outside of your normal routine. This could range from new adventures to new inventions. An excellent time to leave your comfort zone and widen your social circle with some extra ordinary people.
  • 6:07 pm – Sun trine Saturn brings achievement and recognition for earlier effort. You will be focussed on achieving your long-term goals and stay well-balanced. This means that other areas of your life do not need to suffer from your strong work ethic and determination. It is easier to reach your goals now because of mutual respect and understanding. So relationships with men and superiors will be serious, practical and beneficial. Valuable guidance can also come from elders and leaders. You may take on more responsibility but without the added stress. Promotion at work is another possibility. Whether it is achievement or more recognition, you should come away from this transit with a feeling of satisfaction, contentment and higher self-esteem. This is a good time to pass on your knowledge to the younger generation.
