From Monday 20th August 2018 to Sunday 26th August 2018
If the message this week could be summed up in one sentence, despite the fact there are complex conditions in play, the gods would need just 5 words to bring the message home. That message is 'you can have it all', with a smorgasbord of adventurous, professional, financial, playful, career and home forces coming together in a way that isn't always pretty at the time. In fact, by the weekend work/life balance tensions will have come to a head, with the potential for some communication issues as well. Yet this is simply a lot of situations colliding in order to find out where they all fit, with strong forces on all fronts unwilling to back down. You won't kill the spirit of adventure or playfulness or halt your professional star from rising, forcing you to find a way to fit it all in.
The week begins with a New Moon in your financial sector, giving you a chance to draw a new line in the sand from the get go, something you needed to do anyway. For with the Sun leaving your financial sector on Thursday, bringing your annual financial review to a close and Saturn returning to your income sector next month, the money gods are already in wrap up mode, urging you to deal with money matters and to take care of any financial housekeeping required. Yet as much as this is a chance to address money matters, this is also a chance to commit to your financial desires, plans and objectives for the coming year and now that everything is on the table, to walking the talk. This is when you need to take responsibility for your financial destiny, getting back in the driver's seat.
Thanks to the Moon's visit to your relationship sector last week, the emotional responses triggered and the chance this created to bring things full circle, you're left with a better sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. This was the Moon's first visit since your annual relationship review ended last month and having come full circle from last month's New Moon, this was a chance to revisit the intentions made back then. With a much clearer sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you this is when the real journey begins, at a time when Venus is helping to set firm goals. Your challenge is to use this to raise the bar high enough that you have something to aim for, but not so high that you create unrealistic expectations.
