As the sun leaves Leo (AEST 23 Aug, 22 Aug GMT) and the Virgo season begins, the pressure reaching adulthood in 2021 seems a bit more bearable. Heaven is a timely invitation to accept the things we cannot change and to focus on what we can. This week, pick one thing that always makes you feel better during times of stress and make it your top priority. Whether it’s getting a full eight-hour rest, packing all your veg for the week ahead, or limiting social media, small changes to your routine will help the uncertainty feel even more manageable.

ARIES AND ASCENDING ARIES
If your finger has hovered over “send” on an important email or LinkedIn request, Monday’s stars seem particularly supportive of sending. Catch the wave of good vibes and take the initiative to forge new relationships with long term potential. In the middle of the week, there is quite a bit of confusion in the air. If you are unsure of something, don’t be afraid to ask for clarification.
BULL AND ASCENDING BULL
There should be a palpable change in the mood for Taurus this week as the pressure eases. After a particularly tumultuous few months, use this week to try and do something good for yourself each day. It doesn’t have to be expensive or elaborate (although if you need an excuse, consider this your green light). Just make sure there is half an hour of something that makes you say: felt well after.
GEMINI AND THE ASCENSION OF GEMINI
There is a familiar, cooperative feel to the energy of this week that should bring a welcome change to Gemini. Making the most of the card given to you is the vibe, especially on the home front. In the middle of the week, there is a potential for a bit of confusion or platitude – especially around something (or someone) work / life – related. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, call a friend.
CANCER AND INCREASED CANCER
The pressure eases this week as financial worries start to feel a little less daunting. A heartfelt conversation on Monday could help ease the situation and / or help you make a plan to sort out the cash affairs. If you’re planning tough conversations, the middle of the week seems a bit tricky with widespread confusion on Wednesday followed by fireworks on Thursday, so choose your words wisely.
LION AND ASCENDING LION
As the sun leaves your house, you’d be forgiven for shedding a tear, but in all fairness the change won’t be that bad. There’s a sweet window on Mondays to reach out to someone you care about – romantically or professionally. The stars are ready to help you make a connection with serious endurance, so be brave and take the first step.
VIRGIN AND ASCENDING VIRGIN
No sign will bask in the energetic shift this week just like Virgos. With your season in full swing, there’s never been a better time to put your head down and get down to business. A lack of clarity or confusion in the middle of the week could cause a bit of chaos – especially in your closest relationships – so go the extra mile to make sure people around you understand what you are writing.
BALANCE AND BALANCE ON THE RISE
Connection and intuition are your beacons this week. Monday is * bosses kissing * for reaching out to someone you’d like to have long term. Midweek, watch out for dreams, synchronicities, and random downloads that might offer deeper wisdom. Conversations at home could get heavy on Thursday, so proceed with caution unless you’re prepared to have this speak.
ASCENDING SCORPIO AND SCORPION
This year has been a lot on the Scorps, and talking about your feelings isn’t always easy. But if you’re not feeling well, Monday is a great day to get some extra support. Joining an online support group or finding a therapist might be the perfect way to use energy. Mid-week seems a bit light on the details. Be aware that benign conversations can easily be misunderstood, especially with friends.
SAGITTARIUS AND ASCENDING SAGITTARIUS
The sky offers just the right mix of glamor and sparkle to make Saggs make a good impression on Monday. Now is the perfect time because the sun is simultaneously illuminating your career area. New connections, friends or contacts are ripe for the taking, all you have to do is take the first step. The only caveat is that the talks could go a bit off-track on Wednesday, so make sure you mean what you say.
ASCENDING CAPRICORN AND CAPRICORN
If you’re thinking about starting a serious dialogue about money – especially at work – the Monday stars are offering extra support to take the first step. Clarity and precision are crucial, especially in the middle of the week, but if you choose your words carefully, you will have the opportunity to have life-changing conversations before the end of the week. Preparation is everything, so take the time to plan your points and then go for it.
AQUARIUS AND ASCENDING AQUARIUS
As Virgo season kicks off Monday, the heaviness of the past two months shouldn’t seem so imminent for Aquarians. Take the time to get to the ground and do some psychological self-care. Exercise, eat right, sleep more – all you need to replenish your personal resources. Note: There is a risk of misunderstandings regarding money, so make sure you are very clear, especially mid-week.
ASCENDING FISH AND FISH
Love and relationships have been under the microscope a lot this month for Pisces, and this week that focus continues. As the sun shines on your relationship area, there is renewed optimism around your most important relationships. Despite the sun, a lack of clarity in the middle of the week can be confusing, so if you’re having a serious conversation, make sure the other person understands where you’re coming from.
