A New Moon in Leo is Coming: Here’s Your Horoscope for the Week of August 17

Weekly Horoscope

This third week of August comes a New Moon (August 18)—a time for self-reflection, for peace and quiet, and for manifesting your dreams.
The New Moon in Leo urges us to welcome the energies of the Leo sign; that is, to celebrate who we are and the life we are living. Spoil yourself in a typical Leo fashion by indulging in things you love. Nurture your creative talents and be open to kindling the fire of romance too!

Here’s your horoscope for the week:

Aries (March 20 to April 19)

You may find yourself unable to see past your current problems, weighed down heavily by your negativity and disappointment with yourself. However, if you just take a step back, it’s possible that you are simply magnifying an otherwise simple issue. Break free from this prison of hopelessness and be grateful for all the good that surrounds you. Not all is lost! Pick yourself up and use what you’ve learned from this experience to prepare you for bigger battles ahead.

Taurus (April 19 – May 20) 

You are most likely feeling stuck where you are because of emotional baggage you cannot free yourself from or because of the unhealthy habits and behaviors that you continue to do. Gather the strength to battle these inner demons and attract more positive energies into your life. All it takes is one brave step forward to change everything.

Gemini (May 20 – June 21)

You may be feeling stuck in place because of temporary setbacks that have thrown you off-course or have ruined your plans. Don’t let this discourage you or pull you down! You are strong and capable of turning things around; you just have to be patient and not give up! Life is a learning process. Be open to making mistakes and growing from them.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

There is tension among you and those around you at home, in your social circle, or at work due to lack of proper communication, teamwork, and respect. Think about what you need to do to free yourself from this toxic environment. Take a step back to breathe and restore your physical, mental, and emotional health as you reflect on where you are and where you’re headed.

Leo (July 22 – August 23)

You may be feeling dissatisfied with where you are right now, convinced that you are meant for greater things and better opportunities. However, you need to understand that just because you want something, it doesn’t mean it’s right for you. Saying yes to so many things that you think you might enjoy will only burn you out in the long run. Be clear on what you are meant to do in your life and stick with that.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

You may feel that there are plenty of things holding you back in your journey and it’s causing you unnecessary stress and anxiety that things aren’t going the way you planned them to. But have heart, dear Virgo. You shouldn’t rush. Let it all unfold in their own time. Don’t lose hope; you are strong enough to survive these bumps on the road.

Libra (September 22 – October 23)

You may feel that conflict and tension abound all around you, causing unnecessary stress and anxiety. But when you find that people or situations are making you doubt yourself, do what you can to tune them out. You don’t need to prove yourself to them; simply knowing for yourself that you are strong and capable is enough. Don’t be afraid to be who you truly are, to make mistakes, and to grow from them.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)

Prioritize balance in your life at this time. As you build the foundations of your plans, remember to take it step by step and watch it all fall into place. Be comforted by the fact that whatever you choose to do at this time, you will be supported by everyone around you. So give it your all!

Sagittarius (November 21 – December 21)

Be filled with inspiration and passionate fire as you make your dreams come true! There are so many possibilities opening up around you that you shouldn’t hold back from seizing them as they come. You may feel a little bit scared and anxious about leaving your comfort zone and facing uncertainty, but trust that this new world will only lead you to much greater heights as long as you’re properly ready for it!

Capricorn (December 21 – January 19)

Say goodbye to the person you’ve probably been pretending to be all this time. Be true to who you are and don’t be afraid to chase after dreams your heart desires, no matter what anyone says. If it makes you happy, then why hold yourself back? Show everyone what you’re capable of!

Aquarius (January 19 – February 18)

Don’t be afraid to take the lead right now and make the change you’ve been meaning to see at home, at work, or even in your society. You are aware that you have a voice and that you must use it to fight for truth and justice. No one is insignificant, after all. Your sense of accomplishment right now is dependent on what changes you can make, no matter how small. Trust that you will be supported by all those who believe in you.

Pisces (February 18 – March 20)

You may feel that you are deserving of so much more than what currently have without realizing that you don’t need the best of everything to feel happy and fulfilled. All you need is to discover that which is most important to you and be content with having it. No life is perfect, after all, and you shouldn’t compare yours with someone else’s. Focus on what’s important to you.
