From Monday 21st August 2017 to Sunday 27th August 2017
A week that begins disguised as a week that is all about work matters is actually a week that is more about your relationships. It's Monday's New Moon in your work sector, just 3 days before the Sun is due to leave that is not only putting the spotlight on your work situation, matters and options, but brings a chance for new beginnings and to commit to the journey ahead. In the meantime, even before the Sun returns to your relationship sector on Thursday, Mercury's retrograde turn here on Tuesday and with Mars fuelling your passions and fighting spirit, there'll already be a lot of focus here. While the Sun's return will trigger another round of personal and/or relationship tensions, this time there really is a chance for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough.
Until now Venus, moving through your financial sector and Pluto, in retrograde motion in your income sector, have not only been minding their own business, but with both well supported there is a growing sense of confidence on both fronts. Financial tensions this week might take you off guard, but this is likely to benefit you and the money gods. Venus and Pluto won't move into opposition until the weekend, but the Moon's return to your financial sector on Thursday could exacerbate financial tensions that could be starting to build by then, triggering your financial instincts but also your emotional responses. Yet this is the wakeup calls that both income and financial forces need, providing the right motivation at the right time, raising the bar on both fronts.
Thanks to the Moon's visit to your romantic sector last week the spirit of romance has had a top up, in a week where the focus is on your relationships, in a diverse and complex way. It was over the weekend that an opposition between Mars and Saturn once more brought personal and/or relationship tensions to a head, but a combination of the Moon's return to your relationship sector in the early days of the week and the Sun's return on Thursday will see another flare up. By the weekend it will be the Sun in opposition, with yet another wave of personal and/or relationship tension, yet all is not what it seems. Mercury's retrograde turn on Tuesday and the chance this brings to give the past and unsaid words a voice sets the scene for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough.
