Weekly Astrology Forecast for All Signs August 5 2019
with our astrologer and psychic Elena
- Take a pleasure trip towards a bigger love
- Time to take a chance
- Follow your bliss
Time to let that love light shine, Aries. Not just on who you love but what you love to do as well. If that’s travel then welcome to your dream vacation as the Sun and Venus in your 5th both trine Jupiter in your 9th. Plus you have the return of Mercury into your 5th from the 11th. For some this could involve a pleasure trip of a different variety as this is your house of lovers. This week favours taking a chance and reviving that feeling that anything is possible. This is also your house of children, babies, step children and those younger than you and relationships that could possibly make you a parent. That new love interest that appears or even possibly a revived one, could just be pre-packaged with extra-special potential now.
Above all, the call is to just let go and take the plunge. To follow pleasure where it wants to take you. Invitations could come your way or your optimistic and expansive mind-set sees you making fun your priority. What activities can you lose yourself in completely and which allow you to shine? Go for those. Lucky breaks around career or what you do or could be ‘known’ for – ie: fame or public accolades, could be the icing on the cake for some. Again, this is all about putting yourself and your talents ‘out there’ – while radiating joy doing so. Let go of any self-censure that you are not good enough. Vesta in your 2nd wants your talents to shine bright and it makes a success attracting aspect to Pluto in your 10th on the 10th. This could transform how you see yourself – and how others see you in turn. Whether on a personal or professional level, expect a positive response.
In a nutshell: Let yourself shine! You’re on a fresh journey towards love or recognition this week. It begins with your willingness to take a chance. Lose yourself in the experience this week.
- Live it up
- Fan your eternal flame
- Positive change validates long term efforts
When your ruler Venus is involved in a major transit then you know it’s designed to bring you benefits on some level, Taurus. Also, when you have three planets in a particular house in your chart – then this tells you it is time to focus on that specific area. If one of those planets is your ruler – this is going to get personal. This week sees the Sun, Venus and Mercury in your 4th of home, roots, family and long term security. It’s very much a ‘full house’ as you also have Mars and Juno in here too. Positive changes around your house, apartment, living arrangements, family circumstances or even your income are indicated as both the Sun and Venus align with Jupiter in your zone of shared resources, salary, property and assets. Moving to a larger, better home is one possibility. Mercury’s re-arrival in here points to deals to be finalised or decisions made upon which you can build that castle or enhance your present one! Live it up and live it large now.
Vesta in your 1st is all about fanning your inner sacred flame. Keeping your light burning along with your faith in yourself and that oh-so-private vision or quiet ambition. You strength lies in being willing to commit to the long haul and work often behind the scenes, or unacknowledged provided you have a long term goal you believe in. Keeping that faith in yourself brings its own rewards this week – and ones the world can see. Long term efforts, your own special brand of secret power that you’ve been investing in that goal, release you into a new cycle of recognition and expansion as Vesta trines Pluto in your 9th. Changes are not to be feared this week. They represent the culmination of all you’ve been working towards, Taurus.
In a nutshell: Ruler Venus wants to enhance your lifestyle or living space this week. If you’ve kept the faith in your goals, get ready for validation as long term efforts pay off for you.
- Step up that search for love
- Be upfront about who or what you’re seeking
- Old flame? Secret dream? Maybe not so secret anymore
If its love or even a working partnership you are looking for, this week is one to go out and find it, Gemini. Ruler Mercury arrives back in its ruling 3rd in your chart and is almost out of its retroshadow time. Time to communicate what you want. Whether it’s that new job, business, blog, website or romantic partner Venus in your 3rd offers you one of the best opportunities of the year to sell yourself. Especially as it trines to Jupiter in your 7th – which Venus of course rules. Join that dating site. Put yourself out there. Launch that product, business or service. Send your CV winging into that potential employer’s inbox. Flirt, talk, share ideas and above all, be upfront about what you want. The combination of the Sun, Venus and Jupiter just adds up to a positive response.
Secret longings shouldn’t remain a secret any more. What is that dream you’ve been keeping to yourself? Or have you simply been working towards something you’ve simply not wanted to share until you were sure it was within reach? Just be certain as Pluto in its ruling 8th trines Vesta in your 12th, that the secret isn’t something you don’t want aired. With Pluto things have a way of escaping whether we want them to or not. That being said, the flame you have kept burning now – and this could even be an old one, could be in for the most fabulous rebirth or resurrection. Having faith – in an outcome, an idea or simply the future, tests us. But this week could show you that keeping yours was not misplaced. Hold on to your dreams this week, Gemini.
In a nutshell: If you are seeking any relationship that involves you and at least one other person, now is the week to take action. Put yourself out there. What or who you want is looking for you too!
- Embrace a new abundance
- Work what you have to offer
- Love is your greatest asset
Venus in its ruling 2nd plus a slew of other planets in there? It’s all about your money and your relationship to the material world this week. A pay rise, job offer or promotion could be on the table thanks to the Sun also in here which along with Venus, trines Jupiter in your workzone on the 7th and 8th. If you are out of work at the moment, looking to re-enter the workforce or simply wanting to make a move into something better, this week is the time to apply for that new role. Mercury’s re-entrance into this house on the 11th means that retroshadow time is now almost over – in fact, it will exit this next week. So, if you have been waiting on an answer which is linked to your finances, this could see it finally materialise. But Mercury direct also tells you it’s time to get behind any ideas you have now that can generate not only extra money but also increase that feeling of self-worth too.
Feeling abundant and ‘rich’ is about more than just money. This week wants you to appreciate the ‘richness’ of your relationships too. In fact we can say, our bank accounts and financial fortunes can fluctuate and go up and down. But what we can bank on most are the people around us. There’s no point in being the richest person you know if you don’t know anyone else. Wealth could just be measured by your connections and the love you feel. Old friends and old loves prove to be where riches can be found as Vesta in your 11th trines Pluto in your 7th. This could even however, deliver someone new or transform an existing union. The partnership or person you hope for could be a connection you have already. So when it comes to love assets and this includes the love of friends, just how rich are you, Cancer?
In a nutshell: What does abundance mean to you, Cancer? Measure your wealth against the love you receive. Friends and partners are your greatest assets. Welcome to the new rich list.
- You’re the real thing, Leo
- You push the button!
- Work it like you own it. You do.
Get your glow on. And if not now, then when, Leo? It’s a week where you need to be radiating your signature golden glow and going after what you want with confident style. Be seen and do whatever it takes to get yourself noticed or the result you want. You make it happen now but if you just push the button then what you will find the universe steps in with that extra helping hand or touch of magic synchronicity. Call it a birthday gift. Right now you have glittering ‘see me’ aspects occurring which you have not experienced in 12 years – and will have to wait another 12 to occur again. Which is why I am asking what are you waiting for? Set your sights and your confidence high. Go after what you want and above all, act like you already have that love, that dream job or just the accolades or wish you desire.
Your ruler the Sun trines Jupiter in your 5th on the 7th and Venus does the same the following day. Note that Jupiter is about to move forward again next week and Mercury returns to your 1st on the 11th. What you set in motion now gets a kickstarter from this forward motion. How is your belief in your ability to get where you need to be when it comes to your career, Leo? Vesta in your 10th is all about knowing that often being an overnight sensation took years of practice. Recognition for what you have patienty and dligigenly been working towards could follow its angle to Pluto as those in positions of power sit up and take notice. Act as if you’re the real deal now. And know it’s no act either.
In a nutshell: You don’t have to have a ‘fake it till you make it’ approach, Leo. Know you are the real deal and act accordingly. Don’t wait for someone to push the button – ignite those dreams!
- Where is home for you?
- Surround yourself with soul family
- Release yourself into a bigger love
Ruler Mercury arrives back in your 12th this week and you only have a few more days of retroshadow remaining. There are presently what can only be referred to as a slew of planets sitting in your 12th. Not just Mercury but the Sun, Venus, Mars and Juno make your 12th a crowded one. This is your yearly soul house clearing yes. But it is also about looking back at your past without becoming sentimental about it. When you do this, you release yourself from long term beliefs and on into something new. Your soul family are in focus now. And you should be aware that the members may or may not share genetics with you. There’s also a call out for you to release yourself into what or where feels like home. Is it where you are or far far away? Where are you continually drawn back to? Either in your thoughts or you make ‘pilgrimages’ there? Does the place call to you not just in this lifetime but in others? This week as the Sun and Venus trine Jupiter in your 4th of family and roots, it’s time to discover why, where and above all, how you want to be living in the upcoming year.
Your pristine Virgo energy aligns perfectly with that of Vesta, presently in your 9th. This underscores your present need for more freedom where the experiences of your past fuse with the dreams of your future. Future loves, future family members as in children, relationships which could lead to this or future ventures which get you recognition, point to something bigger in which you can invest yourself – mind body and soul, as Vesta aligns to Jupiter in your 5th. Something new is emerging from your reflections on the past. Go towards what or who, feels like home.
In a nutshell: It’s soul homecoming week, Virgo. Where, what or who feels like home for you? Revisit the past to set your direction for the future. You’ll love the freedom you can create now.
- Words, messages and ideas have wings
- What wish provides the best experience?
- Just say it – anyway you can
Talk, blog, vlog, write, message and speak about those ideas or what you have on your mind this week. And to as many people as possible, Libra. Also, what’s at the top of that wishlist? Especially when it comes to experiences? Don’t think in terms of money or what that may buy you. Think about those goals which would enrich you on an inner level. And also would provide you with memories that would keep the experience alive for you long after it was over. You’ve the full package of planets in your 11th house of you and the collective and also your goals, wishes and dreams. These include ruler Venus which along with the Sun this week, trines Jupiter in your 3rd. You can not only get your ideas or message across to more people than ever before, but receive the result you were hoping for back. Travel is very much top of the possible wishes that can be granted now as Mercury moves into your 11th and is set to clear retroshadow in a few days.
Lucky breaks with work or business, bold moves into a brave new way of communicating and connecting are just some of the benefits which could be delivered now. Venus will not make this particular angle to Jupiter from this house for another 12 years. Both planets want to say ‘Yes’ to you on some level. Open up as many ways as you can for them to do this. And as many ways as you can to connect to people right now. Vesta in your 8th is all about how powerful you feel when it comes to handling your assets, money, property and investments. How secure do you feel when it comes to this? Changes around your home or living arrangements or even you income are down to your own best efforts and put you in a better position for the future. That new sense of self-empowerment should be enough to further fuel what you have to say. Words, ideas and thoughts have wings. And are homing pigeons bearing answers to wishes this week.
In a nutshell: Send out those ideas, messages and words winging far and wide this week, Libra. Ensure you reach as many people as possible. The response you receive could be a firm ‘Yes’.
- Work your business like a boss
- Take yourself seriously for serious results
- Make that lasting impression
Perfect that presentation, career move, CV or professional image this week, Scorpio. And get ready to work what you have like a boss! Take pride in your talents, skills and experience and show people that you are a force to be reckoned with. How do you want to be seen and perceived? And how do you want to be rewarded for what you do? There’s a need to be taken seriously – not just by employers present or potential or people in positions of influence. But also by those in your personal life too. Our 10th house is not just about how far we can climb but also our public image and reputation. When we have planets in our 10th we are ‘on show’ to the world. So act with this in mind at all times and ensure you are coming across as how you want to be seen.
Thankfully the impression you are set to make should be a favourable and rewarding one thanks to the Sun and Venus in here angling to Jupiter in Venus’s ruling 2nd. Also in here are ancient ruler Mars and Juno giving you the ability to forge long term alliances that can benefit you. Mercury’s re-entry in here on the 11th could bring you a positive outcome you’ve been seeking when it comes to those tangible rewards and the recognition you desire. You also have the backing on ruler Pluto in your 3rd angling to Vesta in your 7th. In this case, look to any power issues in partnerships – whether existing or potential. This is why you need to ensure you are taken seriously. Serious belief in yourself and your worth leads to serious results this week, Scorpio.
In a nutshell: Time to get serious. About how you want to be seen and above all, how you want to be treated by others. You’re on show now. Let others know you mean business this week.
- Say goodbye to confinement and inertia
- Start a new journey
- Keeping the faith brings its rewards
Ruler Jupiter will finally head direct again next week. Bringing to an end any feelings of spinning those wheels, Sag. Hopefully you have used this period to refine both your image or that course you’re on. Doors begin to swing open wide now and travel is very much back on the agenda thanks to Mercury’s re-arrival in your 9th plus a full cargo of extra planets in here. These include the Sun and also Venus. Both of which trine Jupiter this week on the 7th and 8th respectively. This could release you from that static situation, send others off to the airport, passport in hand or for some, mark an important point of embarkation. The start of a metaphorical journey into something bigger. You’ve been confined for too long now Sag. And this week marks the end of the inertia.
Has money or a stifling situation been holding you back? Vesta is very much at home in your 6th as it vibes off the pristine and detail-focussed energy of this house. Vesta however is all about power in its own quiet way and can also bring up gender politics in the workplace. One male boss at the top in a largely female dominated profession for example. Now, this may not be a bad thing as it all depends on the male in charge. Is the environment cooperative or competitive? Just because someone has authority or power does not mean they abuse it. The angle Vesta makes to Pluto in your 2nd could see you hired or rewarded in a working situation where one gender dominates. If you are male, this could see you in the reverse position if you are not the one in charge yourself. In other words, a minority in a female dominated organisation. Vestal virgins kept the sacred flame alight in ancient Rome. And this can refer to us working in the background or over a long period of time to reap rewards. That bigger experience may be the recognition coming your way at last, Sag.
In a nutshell: Barriers to progress vanish. Put that feeling of spinning your wheels and going nowhere fast behind you now. Life shifts back into high gear, Sag. Where do you want to go next?
- Own your power
- When it comes to love – you don’t have to compete
- Practice some soul alchemy
The cycle of powerful change you’re currently experiencing continues this week, Capricorn. All down to the massive line up of planets in your 8th. Sitting there like ingredients from an alchemist’s recipe book. Don’t for one moment doubt however than any changes are designed with your benefit in mind. The Sun and Venus in your 8th align with Jupiter in your 12th this week. Something as fundamental as just a change in your outlook or the richness of a soul experience, can send your life off in a new direction. This week could bring you one of those moments. Hearing from someone from your past or news around something you had thought lost or over with, could be an unexpected bonus. Mercury’s re-entry in here points to a revival or a piece of news you thought would never come your way. Mercury has only a few more days of retroshadow left while Jupiter heads direct next week. Take this as a sign you’re leaving some aspect of the past behind and heading forward into the future. It’s a soul rebirth and personal alchemical magic.
Pluto in your 1st asks if you have a crush on someone who others also desire as it trines Vesta in your romantic 5th. If so, the question is: do they desire you back? If you feel you have to compete for their love or attention, this particular transit is telling you why bother? Go find someone whose focus is you and only you. Both these planets in their own way carry messages about power. In the case of Pluto in your 1st, this is about your power and owning it. Being powerful should not mean insisting on having things your own way. Nobody gets that. But true self-empowerment is knowing you are enough as you are and when it comes to love or someone’s time, attention and affection, you don’t have to compete. Have the confidence to buy out of any powerplays. Leaving the past in the past could involve having the power to know you are enough now.
In a nutshell: Your cycle of change continues. And this week the change could involve knowing how powerful you are. Powerful enough not to need to compete with anyone for love, Capricorn.
- Make that commitment to love
- Don’t stay home
- Togetherness takes you further than you ever dreamed possible
Come and get your love, Aquarius. You have a total of five, yes, five planets in your 7th of partners and long term commitment now. This includes asteroid Juno which rules traditional unions of all descriptions. Of course ‘traditional’ these days means anything that works for us over the long term. Venus which rules this house is also in here. Plus you have the Sun, Mars heating up that passion and Mercury which re-enters on the 11th. The Sun and Venus will trine Jupiter in your 11th of social connections and goals, wishes and dreams on the 7th and 8th respectively. If you are single or even seeking a long term job, working relationship, friendship or business partner, you will not have another opportunity like this to become your perfect double act for another 12 years. Already coupled up? This could see you taking that union to the next level or else coming up with a new joint vision that cements your future together.
It literally is all about togetherness this week. So don’t go it alone. Think of the myriad ways you can couple up or be part of something bigger with someone. Other matters fall closer to home now as Vesta in your 4th trines Pluto in your 12th. Too much time at home keeping those home fires burning? Do you desire more – more love, people, connections, experiences? Staying home alone won’t bring you these. Fan that spark into a flame and take action, Aquarius. Time to unify your soul with another’s now.
In a nutshell: Double acts, dynamic duos, twosomes and long term love features this week, Aquarius. Don’t even be tempted to go it alone. Get coupled up in friendship, work or romance!
- Take that next major step
- Discover just how capable you are
- Move on up where you belong
Mercury which rules your 6th re-enters it this week and joins the Sun, Venus, Mars and Juno in here. Plus you have Vesta in that other Mercury-ruled house (3rd) angling to Pluto in your 11th. This week is all about your career, your job, selling yourself and your talents, abilities and skills with potentially rewarding results to follow – and possibly sooner than you think. The line up in your 6th adds up to increased confidence in what you do and how you do it. You’ve also got energy to burn. You’ll be feeling there is nothing you can’t tackle. This along with angles between the Sun and Venus and Jupiter in your sector of long term career and reputation, could see you reaching for that next rung – or perhaps several above it, on that career ladder.
Now is the time to discover just what you are capable of, Pisces. Good news regarding that job application, interview, pitch or proposal could be on its way. Especially next week when Mercury will exit retroshadow and Jupiter moves forward again. The trine between Vesta in your 3rd and Pluto in your 11th could shift how others see you or else see an influential or powerful ally put your case forward for that position or offer assistance in some way. The people you encounter this week are a reflection of who you are evolving into. If they are VIP’s this is a sign you belong with them. This week says: You’ll never know until you try. And there’s never been a week like this one in which to try it.
In a nutshell: Are you ready to discover just how capable and successful you can be, Pisces? Work and career defining moves propel you up the ladder of success. The only failure is not trying at all.
