The first half of this week, does have some astral challenges, not least that Venus and Mars, both newly located in Virgo and Sagittarius respectively, are in a harsh angle. This can see freedom clashing with committments, and especially in a love relationship. With Mercury also still caught up in a T Square with Neptune and Saturn, this theme is continued here too. It may be best to under promise and over deliver. For your FREE Weekly Horoscope 8th August 2016 please see below...
Weekly Horoscopes 8th August 2016
Aries 21 March - 20 April
Relationship issues are going to need care, particularly in the week's first half. And the Quarter Moon also suggests that there could be some possessiveness, jealousy or even confusion doing the rounds. However, the most positive news this week is that any plans for expansion, as long as they are well thought through, can take a substantial step forwards, Aries.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
Your ruler Venus is really going to bring out your star quality from here on in, and there can be a real attraction to someone you encounter who has somewhat of a mysterious presence. But with Mercury and Neptune in opposition, be sure that what you digest in relationship conversations is not what you want to hear, rather than what you're really being told.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
Relationship issues have probably not been completely straightforward in the last five months, part of this being the retrograde which has affected both Saturn and also Mars. Both provide a great deal more support for you from this week, as long as you don't focus too much on small areas of imperfection. Create some quality thinking time to avoid this.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
If you're travelling in the first half of this week, do ensure that the arrangements are as precise as possible. That said, your imagination can be absolutely awesome. And if you're someone who loves engaging with artistic or spiritual subjects, this can be a very stimulating time. Work, health and life organisational issues can all seem to get easier from this week on.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
You still have two full weeks to exploit the Sun's transit through your sign. As you are ruled by the Sun, your horoscope shows that this is a prime time for you to take action, and creatively at that. From the point of view of neat vitality, there is plenty to suggest that you can find yourself determined to push on. If you have a sweet tooth Leo, you may find that your willpower is low.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
With Venus having now joined Mercury in your sign, you may find yourself inspired to give yourself some kind of fresh look, or to take up some new interests. For some Virgo's this can also be a week when you actively make changes about where you live. However, it's going to be important for you to not take too much notice of any idle gossip that you may hear.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
With Mercury in opposition to Neptune, there is some potential for mistrust or for some buried anxieties to become rather more active. You may find yourself reading into situations more and over-analysing what people really mean, but actually this would be very understandable. Fortunately, you can feel much less sluggish, and in the mood to get more active.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
Venus and Mercury give you a wonderful opportunity to build contacts, and to expand your network. It's true that not everyone you encounter may necessarily be totally your thing, but try to see the big picture. If you can work collaboratively with others there is a good chance that your everyday financial position will start to become more stable from now.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
Your motivation has probably been affected by the complex right angle between Saturn in your sign and Neptune in your sector of emotions, which has run on for some months. But the wonderful news is that with Saturn going direct and Mars having returned to your sign, your determination to overcome any obstacles is going to increase significantly from here on in.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
An obtuse angle between Jupiter and Uranus suggests that you feel something needs to change in your life, but identifying exactly what this is may prove challenging. But you can find yourself in a much more daring frame of mind, more willing to experiment and go beyond your comfort zone. Yet continue to try to clear up any emotional debris that may be lingering.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
Is there more of a bond between you and a friend than either of you have so far acknowledged? This week, you may realise that the attraction between you is really quite irresistible. In long-term relationships, as long as you have a shared vision for the future, things can go from strength to strength. Put the emphasis on the things you have in common, to firm things up.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
Someone you encounter can wax lyrical this week, and you can find them fascinating. But picking out what's really relevant within this is going to be the trick. This is a week when you need to juggle what you want to do for yourself with what other people expect. Copious amounts of diplomacy and sensitivity to others, suggest that all sorts of bonds can improve.
