Horoscopes for August 19th - August 25th

Leo // Leo Rising
A garden is filled with millions of blossoms. Sometimes you struggle as you go about your daily life, trying to make things work and find the right balance. But the truth is that there are a million things about you that you are special. A million ways that you matter. Know your value. Let yourself bloom. Let yourself shine and be seen. This isn’t egotistical, it’s confident. Be sure of yourself.

Virgo // Virgo Rising
The hands of the clock move more slowly than usual. You may need to be restored to your usual tempo. Put yourself into a meditative state where the minutes slow down. Slowing down can help you appreciate life in a different way. Many things on your to-do list don’t really need to be done. But don't think about those right now. This is a time to rest and meditate. Talk to your higher self and find out what really matters. 

Libra // Libra Rising
A horse chomping at the bit. The bit is connected to the reins and is used to direct the horse. You’re the horse you don’t want to be led right now. It may feel like it’s time for a bit of a revolution. What do you need to break free from? Be careful that you take the time to get clear about what is really holding you back. You don’t want to throw away everything at once. Take your reins and make balanced decisions.

Scorpio // Scorpio Rising
A fountain in the town square. People gather around water, whether at an oasis, a water cooler or a fountain. Water is emotions. This symbol asks you to share your emotions in the public sphere. It’s time to do work that opens your heart. It could be that this happens in your career. But if your work isn’t currently emotional for you, then volunteer or do something creative. Bring your heart to the public.

Sagittarius // Sagittarius Rising
Butterflies fly out the window. Shake free. The only thing that can stop you now is yourself. Stay in movement and think about your goals. Random thoughts will pop up and they will drag you into a spiral. Keep redirecting your thoughts toward your potential. This may feel like a test. It is a chance for you to get really good at choosing which thoughts you want to devote energy to. What do you value?

Capricorn // Capricorn Rising
A power plant. Open your eyes to the amount of power that you have and that you have stored. There is so much energy at your disposal. If you trust that you are strong and resourceful, you’ll feel safe to trust others. And it’s time to create powerful intimate connections. Trust in your own inner stability so that you can feel safe with others.

Aquarius // Aquarius Rising
A game of ping pong. You are going back and forth and that’s okay. It’s a communicative and cerebral time. Make sure that you do physical activities that bring you into your body and save you from the mental back and forth. When it comes to relationships, there is a lot to discuss. Make sure that everyone’s feelings and thoughts are heard and honored.

Pisces // Pisces Rising
A long exhale. So much conflict can be solved by a breathing technique. Really and truly, an extended exhale tells your brain to stop producing fight or flight chemicals. That’s why breathing techniques work. At this time you can improve your life with simple practices that just make you feel better. Focus on your health and get out into nature. Inner peace is found in small, practical gestures.

Aries // Aries Rising
Hiking mountain trails. What’s around the next bend? Another incline or a great view? This is your reminder to live your life fully. Break the monotony with fun, adventure and creativity. If there are no questions or surprises in your day, you may become bored and cranky. So put yourself on a path that keeps you guessing. Your attitude determines whether or not it will be fun.

Taurus // Taurus Rising
Your dream house. It’s time to feel at home. At home in your body. At home in your family. At home in your relationships. At home in your home. Are you feeling uncomfortable in any of these areas? The first step to change is awareness. Notice if you need to invite yourself home, just the way you are now. By doing this, you set a personal standard of self-love that will help you feel emotionally secure.

Gemini // Gemini Rising
Turn up the volume on the radio. Turn up the volume on your ability to be a writer, thinker, talker, learner and friend. This is a very connected time. Wisdom will stream in if you open the channel. For example, if you sit down to write, surprising ideas will come through. If you chat with a friend, your mental space expands. Just be wary of gossip. It saps your energy and distracts you from more interesting mental pursuits.

Cancer // Cancer Rising
A river with a strong current. You can follow the river to the source. But what is the source of the source? You are deep and strong. But where does your strength and depth come from? You don’t need to answer these cryptic questions. Just have to have faith in abundance and take the next step forward. Find your momentum and trust the process even if it’s slow. The current will carry you.
