WEEK OF August 23 – 2 9, 2021
Ready to go deep? This week, the kid gloves come off and you may get (or give) a long-awaited answer in a certain relationship. On Monday, August 23, solidifying Saturn (your co-ruler), in your sign gets into formation with amorous Venus in Libra and your expansive ninth house. Both planets are in signs they rule, and since this is a positive angle, you should be happy with this news. But do you know exactly what YOU want from this connection?
If you’re in a solid partnership, this could be the cosmic bonding agent that acts like superglue and brings you closer than ever. Been hoping to get away together? At the very least, you can start researching and planning a great trip for when time, finances—and circumstances—support it. Some couples might find a way to let a little air into the union while keeping it very much intact.Newly dating?
This is a great moment to screw up your courage and have your first heart-to-heart. It’s either going to work out or it’s not, so stop over-analyzing it and just take the steps to keep advancing it forward—or to pull the plug if you’re sensing a dead end ahead. Relationships aren’t fixed in stone, Aquarius.
They’re ever-changing dynamics that reflect how open and honest two people are about their desires. So there’s no point in holding back expressing your true feelings or acting like everything’s “fine” when that’s far from true. If you’re not in a relationship but would like to be, this transit could inspire some soul-searching…time spent off the dating apps, on your own, getting really clear about what you’re seeking in a partner—or lover. If you haven’t had much luck, it could be because when you don’t know what you want, you simply can’t magically manifest what you MIGHT!But carve out plenty of “me” time for the rest of the week.
With a planetary trio—the Sun, Mercury and Mars—performing in Virgo and your private, seductive eighth house, you may not be in the most social of spirits; which your outgoing air sign needs to be reminded is NOT a bad thing! This is a good time to retreat at least a little and shift out of doer mode and into the role of the keen observer. This chart sector is associated with secrets and mysteries, so it’ll be helpful to start with the assumption that not everything is knowable—and that things that SEEM obvious might be very different. Stop, investigate and try to get incontrovertible evidence before you come to any conclusions.
Make that your mantra on Tuesday, when analytical Mercury, in fine form in Virgo, faces off with fog machine Neptune in its home sign of Pisces. And then on Thursday, the cosmic messenger gets into formation with game-changing Pluto in your subterranean twelfth house. It’s your prerogative to question people and even groups before you get involved (or lend your talents). Keep an open—yet skeptical—mind, and try to get a few different points of view to corroborate any intel that’s coming through.
Remember that there’s no such thing as ultimate truth, just various facets and interpretations. And you get to pick the one that works for YOU.
