August 24 - September 23
Today's Horoscope for Wednesday August 12th
With the pressure around at the moment, the only remedy is to bend your back into it and not give way. You may be faced with getting along with less than usual in terms of material resources or money. But even with difficulties you will find with effort that you're getting to where you want to be albeit slowly. Your attitude to lovers or family members will be intense. Try not to let jealousy or possessiveness spoil relationships. Your insecurity makes you want to be in control.
The Weekly Outlook from 10th August
You won't take your emotional life lightly so you'll be on people or off them in a major way. You love them or you loathe them. There doesn't seem to be a half-way house. Not that you'll be leaping up and down, being blunt. With Mars in aspect to Pluto there are unlikely to be flare-ups or tensions coming out into the open. Quite the reverse. Everybody will tend to sulk, brood or simmer with impatience. Try to keep your sense of humour handy. This won't last long.
Your Monthly Horoscope for August
Despite your best efforts at tucking yourself out of sight and taking it easy, there may be a difference of opinion early on. You won't mean to cause trouble but you'll speak the truth as you see it without fear or favour when a surprise turn of events blows up. You'll find the stop start mood continues as your enthusiasm for a secret scheme runs away with you no matter the cost. Then you'll find it wasn't such a hot idea after all. Keep reminding yourself that until the 23rd your main priority is to recharge your batteries, look backwards and learn the lessons of the past year and prepare for the new phase coming when your birthday Sun turns up later in the month. Be content to sit on the side-lines and letting others do the running around. You won't see eye to eye with a loved one towards mid-month but not making mountains out of a molehill will help. You will have confidential financial matters to sort out which will require perseverance and flexibility since you won't get it all your own way. From the 20th you'll be more upfront about what you want and will find you have the energy and opportunity to make faster progress. A loved one may be crotchety so you'll need to leave them to their own devices.
and Next Month's Horoscope for September
As you set foot into a new birthday year ahead with the Virgo Sun in place until the 22nd, you'll have a more determined look in your eye than usual. You'll know you have the confidence, ability and the favourable circumstances to forge ahead with your pet schemes and to be a stronger presence out on the social scene. Everyone you come across will sit up and take note when you sweep into rooms. OK so one close partner may be vague, uncertain or evasive, but you might as well leave them to their own devices and they'll come round eventually. The tricky dilemmas you've been struggling with in recent weeks, financial and emotional, you'll try to keep under wraps for this month though you know you've another few laps to run before you can hope to bring closure. A triumph on the 9th will make you glow with satisfaction and by mid month you'll reckon you're back in control of events. You may not be as sociable or romantic as usual but you won't be short of admiring company. Into the final week, you'll turn your attention to money to see how to improve your situation and give yourself more for spending.
