Weekly Horoscope for Aug. 2-8

Looking for the previous weekly horoscope?

Sunday: the Moon is in Capricorn
See all the ** below for info on planets currently traveling through Capricorn and therefore conjunct (right on top of) the Moon. Things may be overly serious today.

Monday (Full Moon), Tuesday: the Moon is in Aquarius
Even though this could be a couple of days when things get on your nerves and you can’t seem to concentrate or stay focused, you might also find a little fun surprise around the corner.

Wednesday, Thursday, Friday: the Moon is in Pisces
Don’t take anything for granted or believe everything you read/hear – disappoint will surely result if you do.

Saturday: the Moon is in Aries
Ok, this is a good time to get going on projects you already have in the queue. A New Moon is on the way in about two weeks and at that time, other things will be on your mind.

When reading this weekly horoscope, check your astrology chart to find which house (section of your chart) has the current Moon sign on the cusp (the beginning edge) & apply forecast information to that area of your life as well.

For example, if the Moon is in Leo and one of the suggestions is to entertain – however Leo is located in the 12th house of your chart, which is an inward energy place…then have a small, quiet gathering. By contrast, if Leo is located in the 1st house of your chart, an outward energy place…have a party!

It is also interesting to note when the current Moon is in the same sign as your birth Moon and to see how the flavor of that day carries through the following 30 days.

Current Planet Positions:
Sun –
Leo until Aug. 23
Mercury –
Cancer until Aug. 5, then Leo
Venus – Gemini until Aug. 8
Mars – Aries until Jan. 7, 2021
(retrograde Sept. 9-Nov. 14)
**Jupiter – Capricorn until Dec. 20
**Saturn – Capricorn until Dec. 17
Uranus –
Taurus until Apr. 26, 2026
Neptune – Pisces until Mar. 30, 2025
**Pluto – Capricorn until Nov. 20, 2024

**Note: Saturn & Pluto (two of the astrological heavy-hitters)  are in Capricorn, Saturn until mid-Dec. 2020 and Pluto until late 2024. Regard and carry out your responsibilities seriously. You may have to reconstruct part or all of your foundation.

Jupiter in Capricorn joins Saturn for the rest of its transit and can exaggerate all of the heavy-duty (literally ‘duty’) Saturn stuff. On the other hand, it could possibly mellow some of the Saturn situations.

Pallas (see below) is also in Capricorn – until early Dec. of this year. This asteroid may be invigorating and help you keep your aim straight and true.

Additionally, keep in mind that Capricorn is Saturn’s home base sign and that accomplishments and achievements are also likely, so give yourself praise where praise is due.

Current Asteroid Positions:
Ceres –
Pisces until Feb. 22, 2021
**Pallas –
Capricorn until Dec. 8
Juno – Libra until Sept. 21
Vesta –
Cancer until Aug. 12
Chiron – Aries until May, 2027

Current Asteroid Transits:
Ceres Practice extreme self-care & pampering.
Pallas – There can be a feeling of being in the right place at the right time, kind of like something magic happened.
Juno – With the partnership asteroid (Juno) in the sign that rules love commitments (Libra), there is a year-long emphasis on those two things.
Vesta – Dedicate your time & energy to healing and care-giving.
Chiron – Release pent-up anger; chart a new course for yourself.

Note: Weekly horoscope time frames for Moon signs, void-of-course periods, and current planet & asteroid positions are noted for Eastern time zone (USA). Please adjust according to your own location. Times are not given if the void-of-course Moon occurs for a very short period or if it occurs during the night (based on same Eastern time zone).

∗Mercury Retrograde – the speed of the planet slows down considerably. Communications, paperwork, electronics, traffic and mail can become very mixed-up, delayed, or go on the ‘fritz’ during this time. A situation will be in the process of changing, so wait until Mercury is direct to finalize anything. In general, maintain a slower, more cautious pace in daily affairs. Always allow at least two days before (to slow down) and after (to resume regular activities) a Mercury retrograde period. (Read More about Mercury Retrograde including direct & in station)
