Monday August 25th - Sunday August 31st
Are you in or are you out? This Monday, August 23 marks the annual new moon in Virgo and your seventh house of partnerships. Commitments come under the microscope this week, whether you’re making them, breaking them or simply rebalancing the load so that everything feels fair and square. If you’ve been a lone wolf for a while, it’s time to find some new members of your pack. But don’t be too quick to raise the red velvet rope. Reserve those sacred spaces for people who can go the distance with you. Long-term or bust! The seventh house rules the law so this could be the day where you make a partnership more official by putting the terms into an official contract. Don’t be too quick to concede either. While you don’t need to play hardball, DO make sure your needs and rights are considered in the negotiation process. It’s a lot harder to amend the terms later than it will be to stand your ground and start off your tag team effort on a strong foot.
On Tuesday, honesty is the best policy—as long as you don’t bludgeon anyone with the hammer of truth, that is. Firebrand Mars and stern Saturn align in Scorpio and your candid ninth house making you prone to uncensored blurts. While your assessments may be spot on, wait until you’re asked before spouting off opinions and advice. Your friends don’t need a lecture on the merits of a gluten-free diet when they are about to bite into their $15 haute hamburgers, okay? When it comes to your big future plans, you might feel like you have one Choo on the gas and the other on the brakes this week. It’s for the best, Pisces because you need to check your emotional GPS before you gun the gas. As much as you love the idea of crossing the finish line first, once you’re there, are you ready to deal with the responsibilities that come along with being there? Don’t delude yourself. Your freedom is important to you!
On Friday, your ruling planet Neptune faces off with the Sun provoking a mini identity crisis. Who do you think you are anyway? This is not an easy question to answer on a day like this, especially when you find yourself swayed by a powerful and influential person. You might even get a glimpse of your own shadow—the part of yourself you wish you could shoo away or evolve beyond. Welcome to the human race, Pisces. Rather than trying to overcome your demons, make friends with them. Instead of following them down a destructive rabbit hole, look for the need they are illuminating. The urge to make out with a stranger when you’re happily married, for example, may reveal a need to feel more in touch with your own sexiness and power of attraction. How can you meet these desires without straying from your honor and integrity? Get creative. Maybe you just need to dress up and go out dancing with your girls. Many roads lead to Mecca, Pisces, not just the straight and narrow path…nor the detour to destruction.
