August 3-9, 2020

Sagittarius is a sign that is known for being on its high horse when it comes to what they believe. You have to be ready to let go of things that you thought you knew when faced with new information! The full moon in your house of communication and contracts asks that you let go of something that you thought you knew and take on a new understanding in light of what you have learned. You are investing in your relationships and maybe going a little farther than you normally would as your planetary ruler Jupiter clashes with warrior Mars. Be realistic about how much you’re willing to give. Just because someone is hot right now doesn’t mean you should go overboard trying to chase them.

The cosmic events behind this week’s horoscope:

There is a full moon in Aquarius on Monday, August 3, at 11:58 AM. This is the emotional climax of Leo season, as the sun in Leo faces off with the moon in Aquarius. Full moons come with realizations, releases, and intense feelings. Aquarius is an intellectual air sign, so this is also about what we think. The full moon in Aquarius asks that we balance our need to stand out from the crowd with the energy and vitality that we get from being a part of a group.

There is a tendency to overdo it as warrior Mars clashes with generous Jupiter on Tuesday, August 4, at 9:06 AM. This can result in some pulled muscles, or going too far. There is a lot of confidence to harness, but know your limits! After some time in a quiet sign, Mercury, the planet of communication, enters loud Leo on Tuesday, August 4, at 11:32 PM. With Mercury in Leo we are better equipped to speak our truth without feeling the need to protect ourselves from rejection or heartbreak.

Love planet Venus finally leaves Gemini to enter Cancer on Friday, August 7, at 11:21 AM. With two inner planets changing signs, there’s going to be a lot of fresh beginnings to match the beginning of a new month! Venus in Cancer is done with endless DMs that Venus in Gemini sent—it’s now time to longingly gaze at each other across a lovely meal and learn about their relationship to their parents.

All times ET.
