Your weekly horoscope, Aug. 23-29, 2023


March 21 – April 20

As adults, the topic of fun seems to evade us. We tell ourselves to “earn” or work for it in some way to be able to justify the experience of having sheer unapologetic fun. Life is too short to have an attitude like that. Fortunately, this week brings a new opportunity to see joy and fun in a new light. It doesn’t have to cost much because more often than not, the simple things in life are often the best.


July 21 – August 20

Even if you’re not a morning person, do wake up before dawn at least once this week. Then be sure to go outside and look to the east. If this were a week to ever wish upon a star, this would be your week. Benefits and blessings are available to you in an area where you’ve felt the most troubled or uncertain. Sure, there will be compromise required and things won’t change overnight, but you’re closer than you were before.


November 21 – December 20

When your nose is to the grindstone, it’s hard to see that there will be any kind of end point or outcome. If you’ve been thinking that, then you’d be wrong! This week brings a stunning turnaround in your fortune, or at least your attitude. What you’ve been doing may finally show signs of being worthwhile. It could also be time to pull the plug. In either scenario, a compromise of sorts is likely, one way or another.


April 21 – May 20

You’ve changed in many ways, which is a good and necessary thing for you. Due to change not being your usual method of operation, it may have taken your family or those you’re closest to a little bit of getting used to. This week, an olive branch may be extended, or a solution or some kind of beneficial outcome can be reached. It won’t be sans compromise though. You may have to bend so you don’t break.


August 21 – September 20

Avoid pushing for progress this week. Even if you’ve got deadlines to meet, do your best to not try and bite off more than you can chew. Chances are, you’re not feeling your most clear headed and rational. Fatigue, confusion and uncertainty could be creeping in. If that’s the case, the time to turn your attention within has arrived. A period of self-analysis will help you make wise choices, especially


December 21 – January 21

You’re getting to that time of year where you’re really looking forward to a holiday or some kind of meaningful break. If that’s the case for you, then whip out your calendar and see where you can schedule some much-needed downtime. Is there a place you’ve been before and you’d like to return to? If you’re already on the move, just be sure to make extra time for transit delays or any other logistical snafus. A good book and cocktail might be just the cure!


May 21 – June 20

Try not to overextend yourself too much this week. Your ruler, Mercury, hits the brakes and heads in reverse, causing some disruption to home and family matters and what makes your life feel solid and substantial. If things don’t run smoothly, then let that be your clue as to the pace you need to be adopting. Take the chance to return to something you truly enjoy doing. It might be that thing that when it’s in balance, everything else seems to go right for you.


September 21 – October 20

Some of the issues you’ve been facing within a social setting are beginning to show signs of resolution or some form of outcome. Whether you’re the one who needs to compromise or someone else needs to step up a little more, you may arrive at some kind of happy medium this week. Sometimes, agreeing to disagree is the best you can do. Either way, it’s a step in the right direction and no doubt, you’ll feel so much relief because of it. 


January 21 – February 20

Relationships have been really sticky territory for you in the last several weeks. And while they are unlikely to change anytime soon, you have reached a point where you can begin to resolve whatever issues are stirring within your heart. It doesn’t matter what the issues are or who’s to blame, it always takes two to tango. In order to move forward, regardless of which direction, you need to arrive at a workable compromise. See a different point of view.


June 21 – July 20

A sense of confidence or that things are on the upswing is likely this week, especially if matters of finance have been an area that has been stuck or stagnant. If that has been the case, ask yourself, what action have you been avoiding because of fear? If you’re honest with yourself, you’ll know what that is. Take a step that your future self will thank you for, even if that means you’re still a little uncertain now. Keep the faith.


October 21 – November 20

Every now and then, you simply don’t have the energy for intensity, drama or some of the other attributes that usually come with being a Scorpio. Sometimes, you just need to chill out and not care so much. So if you’re feeling tired or uninspired, just check out! Do what you want to do and don’t buy into the needs or demands of other people. Time spent resting or relaxing by the water would be supremely healing too.


February 21 – March 20

Sometimes the best way to handle relationship matters is to simply become oblivious to them! That’s right, just put your head in the sand. Let’s face it, it’s not always your role to help, solve or fix problems. Sometimes, you just have to let someone else figure things out all on their own. This week, avoid the temptation to rush in, even if that means they stew and simmer for a bit. They’ll get over it eventually.
