Horoscopes for the week of August 10th
Because seeing you again would feel like a piece of me returned.
My Anam Cara Jamie validated that I was on the right path to love when she said, “Listening to your heart about a specific person, over your desire to be with a person, is a big deal.” I got that. What she meant was that oftentimes we focus on the end goal of being in a relationship, without considering whether or not the other person is worthy of our heart’s investment. There is much pressure these days to marry, find companionship, and not be alone, that questions surrounding what it means to be with another are overlooked, e.g., do I see myself building a fruitful life with this person; do I trust this person to honor and accept me as I am; do I fully accept and honor this person as they are.
In my blog “The Summer of Love,” I told the story of two individuals who met and fell madly in love. However, once the chemistry between them began to wane, they found themselves left with only time and space to contemplate their affections and intentions. It was unclear what would come from this momentary pause. But it was certain that by the fall, these two lovebirds would eventually decide to either continue their whirlwind romance, or, enter into…the friend zone (eeek!).
Venus Retrograde has already brought a couple of surprises in love – from the split of Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale after 13 years of marriage, to the secret nuptials of Jennifer Anniston and Justin Theroux. Even Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy have parted ways! No doubt, we will all be contemplating affairs of the heart – both old and new – and Jupiter’s entry in to the sign of Virgo this Tuesday will ensure that we do not gloss over any fine print. Remember, Jupiter tends to magnify our life experience. In the sign of the Virgin, the emphasis will be to purify our existence of the toxins that bring disorder and discontent, relationships included.
Jupiter in Virgo demands that we pay very close attention to that which feels out of sorts in our day-to-day reality, insisting we introduce practical ways of being in this world and in relationship to others. While the process requires us to be mindful of becoming too bogged down with the details, it will still be necessary to perform regular check-ins and check-ups for the sake of healthier living and relating. Jupiter will be in the sign of Virgo through September 2016; check your horoscopes below to see what’s in store for your Zodiac sign, 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 email@example.com.
Aries: Your daily life – from how you take care of your general health and well-being to how you manage your schedule – will become a big deal over the next year. You will be busy, dear Ram; this, I know for certain. It will be tempting to fill your day with activities, and you may not have any choice in the matter. But be mindful of how you approach your daily grind. While you will benefit from new opportunities, the stress (and an expanded waist line) may not be worth the excitement.

Taurus: Romance, children, and creative projects feature over the next year, courtesy of Jupiter in Virgo. It will be imperative that you express your core self, tapping into your artistry and a kid-like abandon that may have been suppressed. Whether you produce physical children or brainchildren, a sense of fun and excitement will bring a marked shift to your regular (dare I say predictable?) demeanor. I highly suggest that you enjoy and explore this new side of you – it’s much less serious! How will Venus Retrograde affect your love life? Find out with this month’s special!

Gemini: Expansion on the home and family front is what you have to look forward to over the next 12 months. You may be adding to your physical home with a new purchase or renovation. It is equally possible that your family literally “expands” due to a pregnancy or new addition. Your sense of emotional security will follow suit, as you begin to focus on building solid foundations from which to create the life you envision. It will be important to stay true to your roots in the process. How will Venus Retrograde affect your love life? Find out with this month’s special! Visit traceylrogers.com for details.
Cancer: Learning and education are highlighted with Jupiter now in the sign of Virgo. You may be teaching others, or trained in a new field of study that will enhance your value and skill set. You can expect day-to-day communication and interactions to increase as a result. New environments will be stimulating as you interface with those who frequent your immediate surroundings. This could also speak of a move to a new neighborhood, and siblings will soon take up much of your attention. How will Venus Retrograde affect your love life? Find out with this month’s special!

Leo: Jupiter in Virgo may bring financial gain and expansion, and that’s pretty good news if you ask me (a Leo!). Your sense of material wealth and security will take on greater importance, as you focus on those things (and people) that are of value. Of course, as your money grows, so too will spending and expenses. I would advise you, then, to be mindful of how you manage the resources that you have, so as to not limit the abundance set to come your way. Self-esteem is peaked too!

Virgo: FINALLY Virgo, Jupiter has left the sign of Leo, and will enter your sign on Tuesday! This is BIG news my friend, so I hope that you are ready. The sky is literally the limit over the next year, as you grow and develop in ways you never would have imagined. The heavens are shining down on you, bestowing you with luck and fortune. How will you use this energy? By being more practical and efficient, of course! But it’s OK to go a little overboard with your wishes – they will come true.

Libra: Libras have had the most eventful 2014 and 2015, which is why Jupiter’s arrival to the sign of Virgo couldn’t be anymore timely. Consider this your personal retreat – a time to whine down (not up), and contemplate the next stages of your life. What’s more, you get an entire year to really figure it out for yourself. I suggest that you use this time wisely. Consider your options, do the self-inquiry, and move through any blocks that may get in your way. By 2016, it will be all systems go!

Scorpio: Group expansion and involvements will fill the next 12 months, as you venture off to meet like-minded folks that speak to where you are at this juncture of your life. You will discover new communities that enhance your lifestyle, while one connection in particular may become a new BFF. Popularity rises as others seek to be in your presence, simply due to your rebel rousing ways. Your affiliation with a church, a non-profit, or a new social circle will benefit you tremendously.

Sagittarius: Career matters will broaden you in ways you never would have anticipated over the next 12 months. Opportunities will become available for increased public recognition surrounding the work that you do. If you are already employed in a vocation that brings you joy, you can expect to reap the rewards for all your efforts. If you are not too in love with your work, Jupiter in Virgo will see to it that you identify your profession of choice, one that comes with meaning and purpose.

Capricorn: Jupiter in Virgo will expand your life philosophies, while encouraging you to step outside of your comfort zone for the sake of personal growth and development. You will feel inclined to explore all possibilities that broaden your life as it is, and a shift in perspective will inspire you to make important changes. FYI, you have a whole 12 months to manifest your vision, and while I know you will effectively use this time to strategize, try to be flexible with the process.

Aquarius: Now that your relationships have grown and expanded over the past year, it’s time to get serious about what happens next – whether for business or pleasure. Commitments will increase over the next year, and you may find yourself fully invested in a partnership that requires more from you than what you’ve given in the past. You only stand to benefit, of course. More time, love, and money from you will be necessary if you hope to see the fruitful results of an important merger.

Pisces: Now that you’ve got a handle on life after a year that begged the need for you to become more creative with juggling many tasks, chores, and responsibilities, you can begin to focus on your relationships. All kinds of relationships will benefit from Jupiter’s presence in your opposite sign, Virgo. If single, new potential will feel exciting, while coupled Fish will see their love grow. Of course, boundaries are still required, so try not to get in over your head. If anything, simply enjoy. How will Venus Retrograde affect your love life? Find out with this month’s special!
