Virgo the Virgin: (Aug. 22-Sept. 22)
A significant person in your life may be erratic and unwilling to cooperate with your plan. You could quarrel over it, but it may not be worth the struggle. You discover a mental error. Don't beat yourself up over it. Fix things and move on. Health is good.
For All Signs: The archetypal couple, Venus and Mars, are meeting in the sky this week. Ordinarily this represents the beginning of a new relationship. However, this time Mercury is retrograding in their midst. This suggests that it is more likely a fresh beginning to an ongoing or a former relationship. It could be reassessing your relationship with partner(s) and tweaking for improvements. It is even possible that people from the past turn up to be recognized once again. If you meet a significant new person at this time, it could help if you are aware that sometimes old, outworn patterns can be re-enacted in new relationships. Don't trick yourself.
Aries: Please note the lead paragraph. This is a highly significant period in your primary relationship(s). You have issues to work through and healing to do for both of you. Things may look shaky for a few weeks, while you re-enact old patterns, realize this and turn it around.
Taurus: It's time to take a good look at your self-care habits and beef up your resolve to avoid sliding into old patterns. The temptation this month is strong. The Bulls really enjoy lying in the grass and enjoying the smell of the flowers, maybe tasting a bonbon or two.
Gemini: This is a fine time to enjoy a lover or your children. You may fall into reminiscence often about wonderful times in the past you have enjoyed together. Travel would be a healing activity for you now.
Cancer: This month is particularly pleasant and peaceful for the Crabs. It is a good time for sharing with friends and family members. You may be hosting some beautiful memories with those you love.
Leo: You may be at odds with one or more others with whom you share resources (time, money, energy). If it is not someone else, you could be quarreling with yourself over such expenditures. Think things through carefully.
Libra: This month's Venus/Mars alignment brings you face to face with your identity versus your relationship. You have a need to evaluate how you will manage to meet your personal needs and yet remain connected. Some may be brooding over past history.
Scorpio: You must work to stay conscious during this period of the Venus/Mars conjunction. When Scorpio becomes dark, it will sting anyone, including the self. There is a deep need for transformation in the sign. But for you learning how to create change without tearing everything up is a lifelong project.
Sagittarius: There are no new aspects this week. However, you have a wonderful aspect to Saturn during this month that suggests your hard work is showing positive results. Good fortune is coming your way due to diligence in the past.
Capricorn: Whoops! Someplace along the way you failed to dot all the i's and cross the t's. If it does not surface right away, then be especially careful with paperwork this week. Overall you should be seeing signs of business improvement in a variety of ways now.
Aquarius: Spiritual renewal is occurring during this period. It may come from a variety of experiences: travel to a beautiful place, visiting with those you consider wise of spirit, or study of uplifting material.
Pisces: Surprise, changeability, and general rebellion are the qualities prominent this week. You may be the one who feels rebellious and wants to be left alone. Or it could be your partner or a good friend. If you have things on your mind regarding a relationship, they may fall right out of your mouth when you least expect it.
