The pressure continues to ease this week as the focus shifts from “getting it done” to “making life easier”. It’s a welcome change that should not only soften the collective angst, but smooth any saltiness you’re feeling in your own relationships. Next weekend looks amazing for having important, productive conversations, but before we get there, a speedbump (3 September AEST, 2 September GMT) could leave you feeling a bit blah or confused. Trust the lethargy will pass quickly. If you can, give yourself permission to take a break from the hustle, even if it’s just for a day.
ARIES AND ARIES RISING
If you’ve felt distant or at loggerheads with a friend, this is a great week to extend an olive branch. The stars are supporting you to reach out and reconnect especially over the weekend. Not only will your powers of persuasion be next-level, their receptivity to your text/email/call will be much stronger than it’s been in months.
TAURUS AND TAURUS RISING
A solution to an ongoing roadblock at work could be within reach this week, as Mercury and Venus help you shift perspective and take a more diplomatic approach. The weekend looks especially sweet for changing tacts to help improve an issue that’s been making you feel stressed or limited.
GEMINI AND GEMINI RISING
There’s a lighter vibe to this week that will feel like a breath of fresh air for Gemini folks. Trust momentary flatness, especially at home/work will pass quickly and let yourself rest. Then, on the weekend play with an artistic practice to help manage stress.
CANCER AND CANCER RISING
An ongoing money problem could feel a whole lot less insurmountable this week as Mercury and Venus help you flip the script and see things differently. Starting a conversation about how to fix it, especially with family (or flatmates) over the weekend will be easier and more productive.
LEO AND LEO RISING
You’re dripping in charisma this week as Venus and Mercury make your way with words smooth like butter. The sudden swagger is the perfect reason to tackle a sore point in your relationship over the weekend. You don’t have to find the solution, simply starting the conversation can be healing in itself.
VIRGO AND VIRGO RISING
Tread gently towards the end of the week when confusion and irritation could make for a chaotic mix, especially in your closest relationships. On the weekend, a shift in perspective could ease a recurrent headache (literally or figuratively speaking) and make things feel a lot more manageable.
LIBRA AND LIBRA RISING
There’s a major shift in perspective this week which should bring clarity and balance, especially if you’ve been feeling a bit flat lately. Trust any sudden blahs will pass, and lighten up by prioritising fun, especially over the weekend.
SCORPIO AND SCORPIO RISING
A change in approach could help smooth out a problem that’s been causing issues at home. Rather than focusing everything that’s wrong about the situation, change tact and open up about how the drama has been making you feel. Vulnerability isn’t easy, but will go a long way to help finding a solution.
SAGITTAIRUS AND SAGITTARIUS RISING
A little bit of flatness or confusion at work could present a bit of a speedbump later in the week. Minimise the disruption by being extra intentional with your actions. Later in the week, a long-overdue conversation with a friend will help iron out an ongoing drama.
CAPRICORN AND CAPRICORN RISING
There’s a cool change coming this week with Venus and Mercury setting the vibe for diplomacy and collaboration, especially at work. The end of the week looks ideal for starting a conversation around a cash concern that’s been keeping you up at night (or possibly all year).
AQUARIUS AND AQUARIUS RISING
If you’ve been feeling a little wobbly lately (or this whole year), things should relax this week as Mercury lends a hand to soothe your anxiety. The overall vibe of cooperation will help shift and soften your perspective. Keep an eye on spending mid-week when cash could almost slip through your fingers.
PISCES AND PISCES RISING
A little bit of uncertainty could have a destabilising effect especially in your relationships, but any waves should subside reasonably quickly. Minimise the impact by being extra clear with your actions. If you’ve been feeling a bit flat, the weekend is ideal for confiding in someone – a problem shared is a problem halved.
