Your Weekly Horoscope: August 11 - August 17, 2021


July 23-Aug. 22

You’re so close, don’t quit now! This week is likely to confront you with some frustrating reminders of what isn’t working or what you can’t control. While this may be upsetting, it doesn’t need to become a whole thing. Look for the opportunity for growth, expansion and even joy in whatever it is that you’re dealing with. How you cope is, in some ways, more important than what’s actually going on right now, Leo.

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

Boundaries require communication and to effectively communicate you don’t only need to speak, you need to listen. This week your relationships need some TLC and you are likely to be hesitant to have conversations that, quite frankly, need to happen. You don’t need to have answers; showing up with questions can often be the most effective way of tending to relationships. Show up, on your part and proceed from there, Virgo.

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

Sometimes you’ve got to go through it to get to it, Libra. This week it may be a struggle to not allow your anxieties to get the better of you. While you may not be able to stop worrying, you can nurture yourself and your situation by focusing on what you have to be grateful for, the love you have within you and in your life. Strive to achieve a balance in what you give your attention to, even if it feels somewhat forced.

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

The truth is true whether you want to accept it or not, and whether others want to hear it or not. While you can’t know what’s going to come next, you likely know what you’re feeling right now. You’re brave enough to stand up for what you feel strongly about and wise enough to know the difference between ego driven passions and those that are driven by joy. What you allow yourself to be motivated by is hugely important, Scorpio.

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

Peace isn’t a destination, it’s a practice. And sometimes that practice requires that you change in ways you would never have thought necessary or possible. You’re likely to be wrestling with your ideas of what needs to shift within you this week. As paradoxical as it is, this may be one of those times when you need to step into the struggle in order to achieve lasting harmony.

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

It’s an excellent time to follow through on making changes this week, Capricorn. The key is to focus your efforts on yourself instead of others. You may need to adjust your expectations, your approach, your attachments or any other thing. The key is to let go of whatever is getting in the way of authenticity and flow because at the end of the day, that’s where abundance lives.

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

You know the expression, “if you love something let it go, and if it doesn’t come back to you, it was never yours.” This week you are likely to need to let go of something or someone, whether that be your expectations, your attachments or the thing itself. Of course, use your common sense and think things through, but the best way forward in this instance is by trusting your heart over your head.

Feb. 19-March 20

It’s really hard to keep things positive all the time in your relationships and still be honest. As scary as it is to have unpleasant conversations or confrontation, it’s an inevitable and meaningful part of intimacy. Upsets are not all bad and getting along all the time is not always good. Be the captain of your own ship and steer your meaningful connections in an authentic direction, even when that means heading for choppy waters.

March 21-April 19

Technically speaking this week is a good one for taking heartfelt leaps of faith. The problem is that you’ll likely be struggling with fears that can bring you to a failure to launch or an awkward start. Give yourself the space and time you need to be ready for your next steps, Aries. Your excitement or impatience is not an indication of holistic readiness, and that’s OK. Be patient with your process, my fiery friend.

April 20-May 20

When upsets arise the best thing to do is fight back, but this week fighting will only beget more fighting. Do your best to understand what is motivating whatever complex you’re having. If you deal with the root of the problem, you’ll make great headway this week, but if you focus on the symptoms, you may find yourself running in circles. Take a nurturing and empathetic approach whenever and however you can, Taurus.

May 21-June 21

If you don’t know what you need and want it’s hard to feel satiated by your circumstances or the people around you. This week is an important one for clarifying your goals and desires, twin star. This may confront you with ways that you have not been acting in accordance with your own ambitions, and while it can be demoralizing it’s OK. Bring awareness to the important, inner stuff and the path forward will light up for you in its own time.

June 22-July 22

Your ruling planet, the moon is new again this week and it may find you feeling extra emo. The best way to use this energy is by investing it in yourself. This may mean tending to your relationships, or doing a better job at work. Investing in yourself is not about selfishness, it is about taking pains to be the person you want to be and to create the life you want to live. Expand your vision for what is possible and follow it up with action steps, no matter how small.
