Week of August 21-27, 2002
This Week: A Pisces Full Moon starts off this week, inspiring us to pay attention to our gut feelings and follow our hunches to make life-changing decisions for the better. There will also be fantastic discoveries in science due to the inspiration of intuitive geniuses. These discoveries will probably not be announced until after the end of this year. The Sun leaves the dramatic, proud, and fun-loving sign of Leo the Lion to enter the service-oriented sign of Virgo the Virgin. This is the time to start paying attention to the details of health and work. The retrograde since mid-March of the intensely sexual planet Pluto ends this week. Unexpected confrontations over property, inheritances, taxes, or legal rights of the past will come to an end and all secrets will be exposed. Those who have been less than honest in the past are in for a rude awakening. Mercury enters Libra to initiate wonderful new partnerships legally or romantically this Monday. Contracts started at this time will prove to be very beneficial.
ARIES (March 20-April 19)Someone will appear suddenly and disappear just as fast. This person will have some dramatic and life-altering effects upon your life. A potential enterprise that failed long ago will resurface and bring with it the possibility of financial security. You will be given the chance to rise from an obscure position to one of prominence if you are willing to take a great risk.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20)Financial problems will soon be relieved with a flurry of business and an adjusted financial statement. A very unexpected bonus could be in the works just when you need it the most. You have felt betrayed by someone important since last spring. Hold on, it is about to get much better. Expect a miraculous recovery when the truth about anothers motives is exposed.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 22)A plan to meet with someone will be cancelled or postponed altogether this week. You will, however, go out anyway and purchase something expensive like a car or a boat. A significant purchase will be decided upon, and the papers will be signed at a later date. Expect to receive some very positive financial news shortly.
CANCER (June 23 to July 22) An ambitious, hot-headed man will cause concern in the family over a long-term health problem or a real estate issue. These problems have caused alienation in the past and are now about to end. It is time to let bygones be bygones and accept someone as they are, not as you would like him to be. You will be completely absorbed in projects designed to build, construct, or promote your future, and there will be talks about moving into a new home.
LEO (July 23 to Aug.22)You want and need the support of others in a romantic situation when you get a surprise from a lover .could be an old flame reenters your life. Emotions will rock the ocean in a very unusual love affair. Your own or a loved ones. Whatever the case may be, the luckiest thing that comes about from this odd situation is the fact that you are obtaining your freedom. Do not look back.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)You have been unhappy with the status of your work or career, and you want things to change or improve. You will also gain insight into the root of a problem, be it your own, a loved one, or a pet. This could indicate medical tests, x-rays, or workups in the offing. This is an excellent time to start a diet or new exercise regime and stick with it until at least this autumn.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)Surprising situations begin to take hold this week, Libra, and you will have to wait a week or two to see how things will turn out. You will be cold to those who are insinuating or operating under false pretenses. A friend will provide special help or guidance so that your ideas will be well received in the future despite someones interference with some not-so-nice motives. Wait for the cream to rise to the top, and all will be well.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)This is an important week, and Monday is most important, Scorpio. A fixed attitude about an unworkable involvement since last March will come to an end, and in its place will come a new perspective, sudden insight, and an uplifting turn of events. You may also be considering the possibility of a marriage or legal partnership with someone you like or love. Financial problems will be resolved, and partnership is now possible.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Something or someone will come along this week to ease the emptiness you have felt since last spring, Sag. Your desire for the perfect love relationship has been crying out from the depth of your very soul. Maybe it is time to have a heart-to-heart with a family member or long-time friend and get something off of your chest. You will be grateful for someones understanding and compassion.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20 You will feel there are more obstacles ahead, and you will not want to face the ordeal you know you must if you are to have what it is you want most. You will be successful in getting something you have wanted for a long time, and rather than having to fight for it, you will wait for it to come to you. Psychic predictions of long ago are found to be accurate, but the timing is off as usual.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19)You will suddenly find yourself in a position to promote something you do, but you will run into unexpected obstacles due to the lack of consent from someone vital. Others do not seem to be as interested in a project as you are. Expect to get a call from an old friend or lover. Someone does care a great deal and will show you or tell you so. Help you request is just around the corner.
PISCES (Feb. 20 to March 20)Tension mounts as you await the outcome of an ongoing conflict since last March that has been only partially resolved this week. Do not fear veiled threats of another. Your position is more secure than you are aware of at this time. You will have mixed emotions regarding a personal relationship or a business associate, and the kinks will be ironed out before you can move ahead in good conscience.
