A Full Moon in Aquarius, Mercury in Leo, and Venus in Cancer: Here’s Your Horoscope for the Week of August 3

Weekly Horoscope

There are quite a few astrological events happening this week as we ring in a new month beginning with a Full Moon in Aquarius on Monday, August 3. This full moon is all about ushering in change and progress. It’s the perfect time to reflect on what it is we need to detach ourselves from and finally let go of.

This is followed by Mercury in Leo on August 5 which is guaranteed to be pretty intense. Be mindful of your temper during this time!

Lastly, Venus will enter Cancer on August 7 which means you will be much more sensitive, emotional, and clingy with your loved ones. Relish in the feeling of comfort and security with the presence of your family during this quarantine period. (If you’re far away from them though, don’t feel hopeless; remember that they are always one video call away!)

Here’s how these events will affect you this week:

Aries (March 20 to April 19)

Right now, the things you’ve been doing are unaligned with your values and beliefs and it’s causing you to feel lost and unsure. As a result, you fail to see and seize the opportunities that abound around you too. You have to clarify what your heart truly wants and take it one step at a time.

Taurus (April 19 – May 20) 

A huge change is coming soon and you need to seize the opportunities that will appear all around you! Don’t be afraid to take risks and go past your comfort zone. You also need to be more mindful of how you treat other people this week; always have compassion and sympathy for those who need them.

Gemini (May 20 – June 21)

You have to be careful not to miss the opportunities that will come your way soon. These will bring you the success and stability you’ve been craving for. Don’t allow yourself to be overcome with self-doubt either; be proud of your achievements both big and small! Celebrate your life for what it is today.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

You have a tendency to want rewards and recognition without being willing to put in the extra work. Remember that nothing in life worth having comes easy and that your dreams will slip through your fingers if you do not put in the effort to make them a reality. Don’t be afraid or feel overwhelmed by all these responsibilities either. You are competent and capable; you just have to take that first step.

Leo (July 22 – August 23)

Something that started out as a good idea is increasingly becoming a burden, sucking the life out of the things you used to enjoy. Don’t let the stress and anxieties overwhelm you or negatively affect your outlook on life, though. You just need to listen to your inner voice and find out what you truly want to do right now—whether it’s to take a brief break or to pursue a different project.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

After persevering through the challenging times, it’s time to give yourself space to breathe and recharge your energies. The pain and hardship are finally coming to an end and you will soon be able to get back on your feet with renewed strength and courage. But for now, enjoy the silence. Reflect on what you‘ve gained through it all—all the experiences, blessings, and learnings—and be grateful for them.

Libra (September 22 – October 23)

Don’t ever feel pressured into thinking that you have to do things fast and easy in order to feel fulfilled. Life is not a race and your impatience may only bring you more trouble in the future than you would have wanted. Instead, allow yourself to slow down and plan out your next steps. This way, you’ll be able to see the opportunities that abound around you!

Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)

You’ve reached a point of success in your life and you’re now enjoying the fruits of your efforts. However, you may have been neglecting your relationships in the process. Remember that accomplishments are sweeter when shared with those who helped and supported you along the way! Treat others with the same love and care that you want to be treated.

Sagittarius (November 21 – December 21)

You’re feeling exhausted from juggling so many things but you’re unsure if your efforts are leading somewhere. When these doubts come in, take a step back and plan your next steps accordingly so that you feel more assured of whether what you’re doing is worth your time. Get inspired by taking time for yourself and nourishing your soul. Do what your heart truly wants!

Capricorn (December 21 – January 19)

Your tendency to obsess over minor details in your work has led you to feel unhappy with your life choices and disappointed with the outcome. You need to take a step back and think about why you wanted to do this in the first place and whether it will benefit you in the long run. Remember that struggles and failures will always be part of the journey. So stop comparing yourself to other people!

Aquarius (January 19 – February 18)

Your visions are not going according to plan and it’s leaving you frustrated and upset. However, you can’t allow yourself to fall apart at the seams because of it. Be calm in handling this hectic situation and be kind to yourself.

Pisces (February 18 – March 20)

Lately, you feel as though you’re unable to live up to people’s expectations as you fail to receive the acknowledgment and validation from them to keep striving towards your goals. You have to remind yourself that you shouldn’t do things just to please other people; you should do them because they make you happy. Always be your true, authentic self and share your unique talents to the world!
