Mercury glides into one of its two home zones of Virgo on Wednesday. This is perfect for using the clarity this will bestow to bring greater precision to a creative project we have recently visualised or planned. This is particularly so because Mercury joins both Venus and Mars in the sign of purity. Venus also angles in a very special way to Pluto, helping us to feel more deeply, who we have a special bond or connection with. For your FREE Weekly Horoscope 9th August 2021 please see below...
Aries 21 March - 20 April
A stroke of good fortune could be down to a friendly encounter, Aries. If it results in an opportunity that you can take advantage of, you'll be very pleased. The theme of organization and greater productivity continues, as Mercury glides into Virgo. Yet you might easily get obsessed with something or someone, which may prevent you from using common sense.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
This looks to be an upbeat week, that's as good for domestic plans as it is for kicking back and enjoying life. Someone may make you an offer that you can't refuse, and it could result in a better work/life balance and greater peace of mind. An intense Venus/Pluto link might coincide with a strong desire for something. It can be good for you, but then again it may not, Taurus.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
Great minds think alike, and the conversations you have might prove this. You and another could come up with a plan to do something big and bold together. There may be a lot of work needed at home, and if so, this is a good time to play catch up. Keen to give your place a makeover? Watch costs, as they might spiral if you spend too freely and don't keep them under control.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
A small windfall could show up, or you might win a prize in a competition. As Mercury opposes bountiful Jupiter, something may come your way unasked for, and it can be a pleasant surprise indeed. Have eyes for someone? A potent angle involving Venus could make it difficult to get them out of your head. Relax your mental grip, and you'll find it easier to break the ice and chat.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
A call from someone you haven't heard from in a while could cheer you up no end, Leo. And because it feels so good to chat, you might want to connect more often. As Mercury glides into your money zone, think about creating a budget or plan that can help you save money, but that allows for a few luxuries too. Still, you may splurge heavily if something catches your eye.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
Trust your intuition, and you'll do well. Don't ignore an intuitive nudge if it tells you to go somewhere or call someone, as good things may happen if you do. As Mercury joins Mars and Venus in your sign, you'll be in your element and ready to get moving on plans that mean a lot to you. Should you continue with something or not? The Quarter Moon can encourage a decision.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
A social occasion could get the week off to a fabulous start. You may join a group, make a new friend or reaffirm connections that are important to you. But you'll also need some peace and quiet, as other factors suggest this is a good time to upgrade your inner game and revamp your approach to various issues. Need to resolve an awkward matter? Help is at hand if you do.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
You may be busy with club matters, chairing committees and the many other tasks that come with having an active social life. As Mercury arrives in Virgo, you could make a concerted effort to move in new circles, as doing so might bring fresh opportunities your way. The Quarter Moon in your sign can see you making excellent progress with a key goal, Scorpio.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
A key aspect brings a lucky break that might offer the chance of a special opportunity. This is also the time to liaise with people in authority, or those you may want to do business with. You could be drawn in by a scheme that seems lucrative. However, this urge can override all other considerations. Take a broader look, as over the long-term it might be a lot of hard work.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
You'll have an opportunity to turn a tricky issue to your advantage, especially if it involves business or money matters. And despite things looking awkward, you could do very well. But you'll also be keen to travel and enjoy new experiences. Plus, there is the chance of an intense encounter that might shake you up, especially if you're instantly attracted to this person.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
A meeting could get the week off to a great start, especially if you're working on something together or are newly in love. Need to discuss something? As Mercury enters an intense zone, conversations can run deep. A discussion with someone might resolve an issue that affects both of you. Have a plan? Inviting others on board may be a real game changer, Aquarius.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
Seeing the bigger picture could help you make wiser decisions Pisces, and enable you to connect with someone better than you might. This may be important if you're struggling with too many edgy issues. When you fully understand what you want, it will be easier to make the necessary adjustments. Mars in your sector of relating can give you the courage to easily clear the air.
