With Venus gliding into one of its two home zone though, keeping a sense of perspective and our patience will be key too. For your FREE Weekly Horoscope 29th August 2016 please see below...
Weekly Horoscopes 29th August 2016
Aries 21 March - 20 April
Precision is going to be crucial this week, and it's not just because Mercury, the planet of communication goes into retrograde. This in itself requires us all to be tuned into the detail of things, and for you this is going to be particularly important around work. Yet the shimmering mist of Neptune also creates smoke and mirrors. Diplomacy, will though help you.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
The Solar Eclipse in your sector of friendships suggests the next six months can be a time of lively interaction. And it can be. But it can also be a period when you can find yourself searching for an outlet for your creative talents. Finding a strand which enables you to feel secure financially will give you even greater motivation, and a meeting this week can prove to be key.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
Personal relationships can be much more influenced by the emotional side of your situation. Where you feel there is a strong sense of security and nurturing atmosphere, there's a greater chance for you to thrive. Some Twins may even think of adding to the family in the next half year, but if there are politics within your clan, they could come to the fore at this time.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
A domestic device or mode of transport which has previously proved to be impeccably reliable, could prove less so in the next three weeks. With Mars combining with Saturn, the first half of this week, getting all the nitty-gritty issues in your world working as efficiently as possible, can give you the push to perhaps look for a replacement, especially if it could be time saving.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
Manage all your financial transactions with even greater care. With Mercury slamming on the brakes, money owed could prove tricky to bring in, and the Eclipse points towards you and someone close to you having a different outlook on expenditure and resources. Still, this can be a fine time to communicate your ideas, with Venus in great support.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
The Eclipse in your sign can on the face of it, be a wonderful opportunity to kick on in the next six months with the things that are most important to you. If you're really single-minded and have some very clear goals, there's a great chance for you to achieve these. If you're less certain, you may find yourself more risk averse. Pleasingly, finances can revive.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
With Venus, your ruler, returning to your sign early this week, this can give you the desire to give your personal identity something of a makeover. Don't be surprised if new admirers beat a path to your door in the weeks to come. In the first half of this week there could also be a serious but constructive conversation. However, your nervous energy can still be at a premium.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
Are you clear about what you want from your long-term future? The first half of this week can certainly concentrate your thinking and especially about your earning potential and your everyday resources. In love, there could be some confusion. It's possible that there is someone in your wider circle of friends that you have feelings for. Would this be reciprocated?
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
Until midweek, Mars in your sign continues to sit side-by-side with the restrictive energies of Saturn. This can certainly give you more drive, but the dreamy Neptune continues to subtly undermine anything other than a totally clear plan of action. If you are sure of your moves, the Eclipse offers an opportunity to drive towards your goals, but friends can be key.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
Communications are always such a vital part of life, but with Mercury starting its third annual rewind, even greater care is required. The same can be said of travel arrangements or sending any parcels. All these areas can be subject to glitches. If you do have key conversations, absolutely ensure that everyone involved has the same understanding of what's agreed.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
Stay focused over a long term aim, with the first half of this week in particular giving you a great chance to gain traction. What perhaps is more complex is how you deal with the physical world, which at times may seem confusing and unfair. Fortunately, Venus moves into your sister air sign of Libra, and can bring a touch of magic to one fascinating attraction.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
Your sector of relationships is blessed with a marvellous Solar Eclipse, but you do need to stay conscious that with Saturn and Neptune involved in this, things may not be quite as straightforward as they seem. Also, with Mercury starting to retrograde, it's going to be very important to listen carefully to what other people are saying, and especially influential types.
