Weekly Horoscope: August 9-15, 2021

Our week begins on a bit of a confusing note when Venus (planet of beauty) in Virgo opposes Neptune (planet of illusion) in Pisces on Monday. This is a bad day for crushes and relationships when you learn that the person you’ve been dreaming of isn’t the same person you hoped they’d be. Expect to face some disappointment as your fantasy doesn’t quite match up to reality.

Be careful what you say when Mercury (planet of communication) in Leo opposes Jupiter (planet of luck) in Aquarius on Tuesday. Telling little white lies or stretching the truth a bit to make your story more interesting could get you into some serious trouble. Honesty is the best policy right now.

However, communication troubles ease on Wednesday when Mercury enters Virgo, its natural placement. Mercury rules Virgo, making this a homecoming of sorts. Communication will be easy for the next two weeks (especially in writing), as our thoughts and words become more organized, reliable, and correct. There’s no need for small talk.
