The Sun powers into the 6th Zodiac sign of Virgo, and as he does so Mercury goes into Retrograde, as we see it from planet earth. This asks us to grapple with all the small and important details of life and improve things. However, with the Sun opposed by Saturn and Mars by Neptune, energy could be at a premium and with the Quarter Moon in Sagittarius, it will be important not to spread ourselves too thinly. For your in-depth Weekly Horoscope Forecast for WC 21st August 2023 each sign, please see below...
Aries 21 March - 20 April
This may be a week of hard work, when it helps to keep your focus if you've a lot to get through. You might not have time for anything frivolous, but an early Mars/Neptune link can cause you to get distracted and take your energy away from all that is important. Ready to commit to a key decision? As the red planet enters Libra, you could be swayed by others
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
Knowing the right people can be a direct route to getting help with a goal, career plan or other opportunity. This is the week to cultivate certain relationships, as they could assist you just when you need it most. Trust your judgement though, as someone may try to sweet talk you into a deal that might work out better for them than you. If you sense something is off, then be strong.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
Need someone reliable to help you get something done? The early Venus/Jupiter angle can assist you in finding just the person for the job, enabling you to get a great result. Geared up for plenty of action at home? If you're looking to book a professional to help with some work, Mercury's retro phase means you should check their credentials. It could save you a lot of time and money.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
Communication may need extra care this week as Mars opposes sensitive Neptune, which could cause muddles just when you don't need them. Plus, with Mercury turning retrograde, any mistakes might be made worse. The Sun's move into Virgo encourages you to be careful in all your dealings. But as Mars enters Libra, you'll also be ready to get your place shipshape.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
The Sun leaves your sign this week, and glides into your money zone on the same day that Mercury goes into reverse. And with Neptune on the field playing a few tricks, it can pay to shop around, but also to examine the small print. Keep receipts and paperwork if you do buy anything, just in case. Mars changes signs and enters Libra, so if you need to negotiate, you're all set, Leo.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
With Mars opposing Neptune, you won't have the energy to argue with or confront someone, and might even feel sorry for them, even if they've caused problems. But given that Mercury also turns retrograde, it's best to let go of any issues and go with the flow. If you pursue them, you'll tie yourself in knots. From the weekend, Mars in Libra gifts you with money-making ideas.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
With Venus aligning with jubilant Jupiter, this can be the time you connect with others who enjoy the same interests as you. If you sense their company will be fulfilling, then it's worth hanging around. Don't be too eager to please midweek, as you may end up making unnecessary sacrifices. Mind, as Mars enters your sign, you'll be a lot more courageous about saying it like it is, Libra.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
Confused by the messages or signals you're getting from someone? If you can't make sense of what they're trying to tell you, then you need to trust your gut. While the start of the week can be great for negotiating and forging agreements, midweek isn't. Even so, with Mercury rewinding and the Sun entering your social zone, you may enjoy some interesting reunions.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
As the Sun enters your sector of goals, you may be eager to do something that helps you get noticed. Put your best effort into this Archer, as it could result in you and your work becoming more popular. Mind, chatty Mercury will go into reverse midweek, so certain plans might be delayed. Plus, as Mars enters Libra, you'll do well in negotiations and can be very persuasive.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
You may have ideas and plans to travel or to seize a new opportunity, but be sure it's right for you. Nebulous and muddled energies can see you opting for something that's nothing like you thought. The Sun's move into Virgo highlights new experiences, but you'll need to push yourself to make the most of them. As Mars glides into Libra, it's time to be competitive career-wise.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
A little planning may be all it takes to enjoy a new experience or a fun-filled trip. And while you might think you have too much on to take advantage of it, it's possible if you put some thought into it. Go easy with finances around midweek though Aquarius, as you could make a poor choice when it comes to purchasing an item that's calling out to you. Be sure to keep receipts!
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
Has a relationship issue lingered on? If so, you may be ready to take action. This is a good time to dig in deep and find out what the reasons for it might be. If you need to talk to this person then do so, as this could assist you with getting to the root of the problem. On another note, you and another can have a lot to discuss, especially if you're mesmerized by their company, Pisces.
