Aug. 1 -- Aug. 8, 2007



For All Signs: Mars and Venus are in conflicting aspect. Oftentimes when Venus is in charge of us we overlook issues of personal boundaries in order to protect relationships and keep the peace. The Mars side of ourselves is the one who chooses personal fulfillment and expansion of territory over relationship. Their present conflict in the sky is a symbol that punctuates the ubiquitous human struggle: How do we maintain a sense of personal identity and continue to share while still maintaining a relationship?

Leo The Lion: (July 22 -- Aug. 22): Mercury travels rapidly through your sign until Aug. 19. During this period there will be greater emphasis on communications, errands, and other short distance travels. Your mind will be quick and your attitude persuasive. You are loaded with ideas. Remember to share the floor with others.

Aries: Mars, your ruling planet, shifts to fresh territory. During the next seven weeks, your activities and feelings will be intensified in the life sectors related to vehicles, communications, education, your neighborhood, and siblings. Coworker difficulties may develop.

Taurus: This is a time that will test the meddle of your relationships. Dormant or hidden tensions that are gnawing at the edges of any relationship are likely to become apparent now. Make an effort to recognize the difference between ego conflicts and genuine difference of opinion. The latter is worth discussing.

Gemini: Mars enters your sign this week and will be traveling with you until the end of September. This warrior energy is best used to handle physically heavy projects or take initiatives that you might not otherwise tackle. Your life tempo will increase. Be alert to your own tone of voice and the tendency to sharpness of speech.

Cancer: Travel plans may require adjustments. You are prone to lose tracks of small things, such as keys or tickets, so pay close attention to where you place them. It may be difficult to move things forward to the finish line. Some weeks are like that. Don't press yourself into a state over it. Time will take care of things.

Virgo: There is a shift of your attention to matters of your personal history that may go back quite a long time. You will be looking inside yourself for meditative peace, answers to serious questions, and encouragement from your source.

Libra: Pay careful attention to your attitude and what you say this week. If you are coming from an unconscious place, or projecting your "stuff" out there, you will be called on it rather quickly. Tell no secrets and listen to no gossip. Beware of a tendency to anger easily. Watch your accelerator foot.

Scorpio: Give special attention to the lead paragraph because Mars is one of your ruling planets. You and another may be in different camps at this time. You could be in conflict over issues of shared resources, which may include the subjects of intimacy and sexuality.

Sagittarius: This period is a high one for you. The positive results of efforts made for the several years should be apparent now. People from afar want your product or service. Travel is a high probability at this time. Aspects favor education, legal interests, and activities involving authorities or government officials.

Capricorn: This is a well deserved period of reward. Your investment of time, energy and money are paying you back. It has been a very long haul, but it is in the nature of the Capricorn Goat to adopt major projects that require multiple layers and pieces. You are building something for which you can be truly proud.

Aquarius: The day to day schedule is hectic and a bit unnerving. However, the news concerning partner or your significant other is so favorable that the small trivia doesn't matter. Your business or work in the world is also favored with positive aspects. Everything is beautiful and your heart is smiling.

Pisces: Make sure you back up important data. Aspects suggest problems with your computer or other electronic equipment. Your nerves may be a bit edgy during this week. The general flow of things is not going as expected and adjustments are needed. Give special attention to clear communications with children and/or lovers.
