As the sun shifts out of Leo (AEST 23 August, 22 August GMT) and Virgo season begins, the pressure that is adulting in 2021 feels just a fraction more bearable. The sky is serving a timely invitation to accept the things we cannot change, and focus on what we can. This week, choose one thing that always makes you feel better in times of stress, and make it your top priority. Whether it’s getting a full eight hours of rest, prepping all your veggies for the week ahead or limiting social media, small changes to your routine will help the uncertainty feel just that little be more manageable.

ARIES AND ARIES RISING

If your finger has been hovering over “send” on an important email or LinkedIn request, Monday’s stars look especially supportive to go for it. Catch the wave of good vibes and take the initiative to make new connections with long-term potential. Mid-week, there’s quite a bit of confusion in the air. If you’re unsure about something don’t be afraid to ask for clarity.

TAURUS AND TAURUS RISING

There should be a palpable shift to the vibe for Taureans this week as the pressure eases. After an especially tumultuous couple of months, use this week to try and do something nice for yourself every day. It doesn’t have to be expensive or elaborate (although if you need an excuse, consider this your greenlight). Just make sure there’s half an hour of something that makes you say, “that felt good” afterwards.

GEMINI AND GEMINI RISING

There’s a familiar, cooperative feel to the energy this week that should make for a welcome change for Gemini folks. Making the most of the card you’re dealt is the vibe, especially on the home front. Mid-week, there’s the potential for a bit of confusion or flatness – especially around something (or someone) work/life – related. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, phone a friend.

CANCER AND CANCER RISING

The pressure eases this week as financial worries begin to feel a little less daunting. A heart-felt conversation on Monday could help soothe the situation and/or help you come up with a plan to get cash stuff sorted. If you’re planning any tough conversations, mid-week looks a little tricky with confusion rife on Wednesday, followed by fireworks on Thursday so choose your words wisely.

LEO AND LEO RISING

As the sun leaves your home sign you’d be forgiven for shedding a tear, but in all honesty the shift won’t be that bad. There’s a sweet window on Monday to reach out to someone you’ve had your eye on – romantically or professionally. The stars are primed to help you make a connection with serious staying power, so be brave and make the first move.

VIRGO AND VIRGO RISING

No sign will bask in the energetic shift this week quite like Virgos. With your season in full swing, there’s never been a better time to put your head down and get on with the job. A lack of clarity or mix-up mid-week could cause a bit of chaos – especially in your closest relationships – so make an extra effort to check the people around you are picking up what you’re putting down.

LIBRA AND LIBRA RISING

Connection and intuition are your guiding lights this week. Monday is *chefs kiss* for reaching out to someone you’re keen to have around long-term. Mid-week pay attention to dreams, synchronicities and random downloads that could offer some deeper wisdom. Conversations at home could get heavy on Thursday so proceed with caution unless you’re ready to have that talk.

SCORPIO AND SCORPIO RISING

This year has been a lot on Scorps, and talking about your feeling isn’t always easy. But if you’re feeling less-than-great, Monday is an excellent day to get some extra support. Joining an online support group or finding a therapist could be the perfect ways to use the energy. Mid-week looks a little light on detail. Be aware benign conversations could get misunderstood easily– especially with friends.

SAGITTARIUS AND SAGITTARIUS RISING

The skies are bestowing just the right mix of charm and brilliance for Saggs to make a good impression on Monday. It’s perfect timing as the sun simultaneously lights up your career sector. New connections, friends or contacts are ripe for the taking, all you need to do is make the first move. The only caution is that chats could go a little off-piste Wednesday so be sure you mean what you say.

CAPRICORN AND CAPRICORN RISING

If you’ve been thinking about starting a serious dialogue about money – especially at work – Monday stars offer extra support to take the first step. Clarity and precision are crucial, especially mid-week, but if you choose your words carefully there’s the chance to have some life-changing conversations before the week is done. Preparation is everything so take time to plan your points, then go for it.

AQUARIUS AND AQUARIUS RISING

As Virgo season kicks off Monday, the heaviness of the past two months shouldn’t feel quite so imminent for Aquarians. Take some time to go to ground and do a little psychological self-care. Exercise, eat well, get more sleep – whatever you need to replenish your personal resources. Side note: there’s potential for misunderstandings around money so make sure you’re extra clear, especially mid-week.

PISCES AND PISCES RISING

Love and relationships have been under the microscope a lot this month for Pisceans, and this week that emphasis continues. As the sun lights up your relationship sector, there’s a renewed sense of optimism around your most important relationships. Despite the sunshine, a lack of clarity mid-week could cause confusion, so if you’re having serious chats, make sure the other person understands where you’re coming from.
