Your Weekly Horoscope: The Past Meets the Future, and It's a Wild Ride!

August 20 – August 26, 2018

There is an astrological shift this week as the illuminating sun moves into the sign of Virgo for a four-week stay. This influence can encourage hard work and attention to detail. You could become more aware of how your routines are either building you up or holding you back, and this is something you might want to change.

The sun will also aspect electric Uranus and sobering Saturn toward the end of the week, particularly on Saturday, which could spotlight a desire to combine the best of the past with more modern, up-to-date ideas. You’ll see the benefits of doing so during this time.

Get an in-depth look at what career you’ll thrive in AND your strengths and weaknesses.

Finally, lovely Venus makes an awkward angle to transformative Pluto on Sunday, which could mean you feel very intensely about someone. Be sure that the person feels the same way about you before you say anything. If you let matters take their course, things should work out much better.
