Horoscopes for the week of August 25th

“There is no coincidence, and nothing happens ‘by accident.’ Each event and adventure is called to your Self by your Self in order that you might create and experience Who You Really Are.”~ Conversations with God – An Uncommon Dialogue

Everything happens for a reason; I believe this to be the ultimate truth. We may not realize it while in the midst of an important transition. But through hindsight and reflection, it is possible to understand the why of a matter if we’re willing to know the truth. It’s ok if you disagree, and you don’t have to take my word for it. The planets Mars and Saturn will soon provide the proof that you need.

Currently, these two heavyweights are both in the sign of Scorpio at the exact same degree. When two or more planets are aligned this close in the sky, it is referred to as a conjunction in Astrology, which can produce some pretty potent energy. Mars represents action while Saturn represents caution, and combined they create a start/stop effect. One minute, life seems to be progressing as planned; the next minute, regular living is suddenly put on hold. This seesaw is frustrating to say the least, and it describes what we’ll be experiencing in the week ahead.

The only way to work with Mars and Saturn is to grit your teeth and do what’s necessary in accordance with your truth. In the sign of Scorpio, you may have to address a few touchy topics that are uncomfortable, and skirting around the issue is not an option. But for all the tension, there is beauty in the madness.

If you can find the wherewithal to stretch beyond your comfort zone, you might just catch a glimpse of your strengths as an individual. Only by directly facing whatever unfolds will you be rewarded with an opportunity to move to the next level of your Soul’s evolutionary journey.

Check your horoscope to see what’s in store this week ahead, and don’t forget to read for your Ascendant sign, too.

On the day you were born, all of the planets were positioned in the signs of the Zodiac – not just the Sun. To find out more about your full astrological make up, email Tracey for a personal Astrology reading at

Aries: Aries the Ram feels pretty comfortable talking about sex. Yours is a Fire a sign, which is the most passionate element of the Zodiac; I don’t doubt your kink or your ability to disarm a potential mate. Money, however, is another story. While you want to accumulate lots of it, financial plans and discussions make you squirm. Unfortunately, this week, you will no longer be able to put off an important investment. Thankfully, you’ve got the courage to go toe-to-toe; just watch your temper. I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit for details.

Taurus: Partners continue to be front and center this week, but it doesn’t have to be so stressful, Taurus. I invite you to adjust your approach now and avoid difficulties in the future; you’ve been forewarned that flexibility will be your strongest weapon. You know what else might help if tensions arise? Sex – better to make love instead of war (but use protection; this is fertile energy). If you can’t “bed” them, there are many other ways to charm and disarm. Venus is your ruler, after all. I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit for details.

Gemini: We understand you like to stay busy, Gemini. It’s your airy quality that makes it so difficult to sit still. Plus, you’re pretty high off of life right now, so that doesn’t help either! You may feel inclined, then, to tack on more errands, social outings, short trips, and to catch up with old friends. That’s all fine and well, but this week, something is going to stop you in your tracks. When that happens (could be a cold or an indefinite delay), take it as your cue to slow your hustle and grind. I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit for details.

Cancer: You’re ready to pull something off, Cancer. You’re desperate to make your mark, show off your talents and be properly recognized as a result. But as you attempt to successfully perform the ultimate hat trick as perfectly as possible, be prepared for a little push back. Just when you start to feel comfortable and confident in your own skin, fear or doubt may creep in and throw you off your game. The trick will be to enjoy the experience. Win or lose, life has this funny way of continuing. I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit for details.

Leo: If family tensions are not elevated this week, your emotional reality is. I beg you then, Leo, to allow yourself to feel what you feel, letting go of the need to find a resolution. Yours is fixed energy, which does not go well with the fixed energy of Scorpio. If you continue to resist so that you can maintain control, all will be lost. Your challenge is to pull through something dense this week, but as a Lion, you’ll do just fine. Once all is clear, life and light will resume, without all that heavy weight. I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit for details.

Virgo: On the one hand, you will feel the urge to give someone a piece of your mind. On the other hand, you will equally feel the urge for restraint, keeping your thoughts to yourself. For a mercurial sign such as yours, this conflict brings anxiety. But while Virgos do need to process, it’s not always necessary to be so exacting in communications with others. Sometimes it’s better to stay quiet and observe. You do that just as well, Virgo. Try it this week. You might just change your perspective. I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit for details.

Libra: Money, worth, value, skills and talents – you have them all! But for whatever reason, you can’t seem to manifest these attributes into something that gives you a permanent sense of personal security. I know you’re trying very hard, and I know that you’ve been very focused. But something is just not clicking. Try not to go against the current this week, then. If activity is stalled, let it sit. This is not defeat; you may have to tighten your budget to prepare for a change in plans. I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit for details.

Scorpio: It’s really not them, Scorpio. It’s you. If other people in your world (colleagues, friends, family or partners) feel frustrated by you, it’s because you continue to dance the tango of two steps forward and two steps back. You need to pick a direction and just go; of this, you are well aware. But you keep exercising caution, which is, for lack of a better word, annoying. I do understand your need to be calculating, and it’s fine. Just be sure to clue others in on all that is up for consideration. I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit for details.

Sagittarius: Surrender, Sagittarius. That’s the advice I have for you this week. Surrender to uncertainty, surrender to your fears, surrender to the unknown. In doing so, you’ll be more prepared for an important breakthrough that will leave you feeling liberated and free. If you fight what’s brewing beneath the surface, refusing to face it head on, you will only hurt yourself bringing more stress. It may not be pretty, but your optimism will be restored if you allow for this release. I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit for details.

Capricorn: An important network or connection has taken up much of your time, energy and focus. You seem to have been given added responsibility for this association as a result, and the pressure to be present in a leadership capacity is heightened this week. Whether you’ve been chosen as the head of an important committee, or planning the party of the century, your strategy should be simple, otherwise, you won’t see much progress. Luckily, you’re at an advantage. You can handle it. I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit for details.

Aquarius: Life at work will be a bit jolty this week. On the one hand, you’re more than ready to move forward on important projects. On the other hand, something or someone will be putting on the breaks. No doubt, you will feel frustrated as a result. Whether it’s an idea you’re trying to sell, or your own expertise that’s being questioned, don’t be surprised if you experience delays. To be honest, this may be your cue to adjust your approach. Don’t come on too strong, dear Water Bearer. I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit for details.

Pisces: A shift in your way of thinking might be necessary this week. As a Water sign, you tend to flow with the tides and can be more flexible than most. But when it comes to your intuition and inner knowing, you won’t at all budge on an important belief. Has it ever occurred to you, however, that you could be interpreting an absolute truth incorrectly? Pisces can be indecisive at times, and so it might behoove you to be open to changing your mind. That is when you’ll discover what’s true. I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit for details.
