Libra Weekly Horoscopes for August 19, 2013



© Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

An unsettling week is in store and we will need to keep moving quickly to avoid getting run over. There is the second Full Moon in Aquarius to contend with and the Sun leaving fiery Leo for calm, earthy Virgo in tandem with Mercury. The shift from Leo to Virgo is rather abrupt this year and we may find ourselves scrambling to shift into work mode.

The Uranus-Pluto square is being triggered once more by Jupiter in Cancer squaring Uranus in Aries on Wednesday and Venus squaring Pluto in Capricorn on Saturday (see my post on Venus in Libra). As uncomfortable as these aspects might make us, they will help get us moving again. Rather than fight to stay in our little ruts, maybe it’s time to venture out and try something new. The downside of Jupiter’s involvement is the need to be right, to feel our opinion is the only one and attempt to force those opinions on others. Very bad idea!

Neptune in Pisces is up to his usual tricks, generating fog and creating confusion via an inconjunct to poor Venus in Libra on Monday and opposing Mercury in Virgo on the weekend. It might sound mean but verify any sad tales of woe before offering your support, particularly financial support. We may be more vulnerable than usual to other people’s sob stories.

Having the Sun and Mercury conjoined in Virgo ought to prove very useful for sorting out our thoughts and feelings. Virgo enjoys solving knotty problems and directing us to the best place to find help. After living with the fluidity of Cancer and the drama of Leo, Mercury is more than happy to return to practical, well grounded Virgo.

The echoes of family drama and angst may reverberate most of the week for you, Aries, and it would be in your best interest to detach yourself from those if possible. All too soon your focus will shift to managing your daily routines most effectively.

The temptation to let others know how you think they should be running their lives might be overwhelming now, Taurus, and as I mentioned above, a very bad idea. Tend to household matters during the week so you can enjoy yourself on the weekend.

Wouldn’t hurt to plan on unexpected expenses this week, Gemini, nor would be hurt to reevaluate how much you’re spending on entertaining. Conversations with family members may take priority soon. Make sure to stay on topic this weekend or things could get really fuzzy.

Personal plans and objectives may run afoul of last minute changes at work, Cancer, and this will probably not set well with you. However I would suggest waiting until next week to have a serious discussion about these issues when it should be easier to gather your thoughts.

Your personal party is about to come to a close for the year, Leo. I know you’ll miss being center stage but you really do need to take time to review your financial situation. Opportunities to do so could start nagging at you this weekend.

It is your turn to shine, Virgo, and I know you will though in your own unique way. One thing to keep in mind on what can be a very enjoyable weekend is the need to not take what others tell you at face value.

What with one thing or another, Libra, you are probably sick and tired of being caught in the middle. This could come to a crescendo midweek though you still need to stay on guard. Be careful of manipulative types this weekend.

After this week work demands may taper off some whilst your need to network with your peers increases in importance, Scorpio. Don’t get sucked into debates over politics and religion this week. That would be a huge waste of your precious time.

Play time is about over for you, Sagittarius, and it is time to refocus your attention on your next career move. The urge to do something fun but reckless could strike you hard this week. Think twice before you jump, OK?

One would think after all the volatility in your home life you would be prepared for more, Capricorn. This time it may involve your partner who could blow matters all out of proportion. At least your working life is looking a little more pleasant.

This week might bring you another opportunity to see your path ahead clearly, Aquarius, so make the most of it. If you have been wrangling with coworkers or your employees lately, that may come to a head now. Be careful what you say to them.

Your latest creative impulse is amazing, Pisces, but it could set you back financially. Be sure to run the numbers before you commit. If you’re single, you may meet someone quite special whom you could feel a very strong connection.

If you know your Rising sign, read the horoscope for it too. 😀

  1. I laughed so hard at the Taurus one for this week. Seems all the Taureans in my life have had very bad attitudes lately. With my Scorpio, I can’t wait to see their bubbles popped.

  2. This full moon was unpleasant. It hit my moon/saturn square in the 6th and I made myself sick with acid reflux by eating too much chocolate at night on an empty stomach (my moon is in Taurus..haha). I forget how old I am sometimes and that I can’t eat whatever I want anymore without consequences. Never again!

    • Hi AA!
      It hit my moon/saturn square in the 6th and I made myself sick with acid reflux by eating too much chocolate at night on an empty stomach (my moon is in Taurus..haha). I forget how old I am sometimes and that I can’t eat whatever I want anymore without consequences.

      Sadly I quit eating chocolate several years ago for just this reason . . . too hard to digest. My mom had the same experience. This was hard because I LOVED chocolate!

      No, it was not a fun Full Moon. Too many edgy aspects demanding attention. The last few days were chaotic around here & I’m looking forward to a waning Jupiter-Uranus square rather than a waxing one. 🙂
