YOU’s resident astrologer Sally Brompton reveals your horoscope for 10th-16th August 2020. So, what does the week have in store?
24 Oct-22 Nov
Don’t worry too much if something you’re working on does not appear to be going too well. The effort you have put in has not been wasted and will, in time, bring the rewards and recognition you crave. Maybe it’s you who is being a little bit impatient.
23 Nov-21 Dec
Current aspects make you determined to prove yourself, which is odd because no one has even hinted that they don’t think you’re good enough. It’s not whether you’re better than your rivals that counts – it’s whether you are better than you were yesterday.
22 Dec-20 Jan
Someone will offer to do you a favour this week but before you accept you should find out what they expect in return. Even if they say they don’t expect anything, still be suspicious because the planets warn they are not being generous out of kindness.
21 Jan-19 Feb
With analytical Mercury challenging your disruptive ruling planet Uranus this would be a good week to relinquish your hold on things you no longer have any use for. The more you throw out the more space you will have for something better.
20 Feb-20 March
Everyone has values but not everyone lives up to them. You can’t use that, however, as an excuse to ignore principles you have lived by for years. You may gain a material benefit in the short term but you will hate yourself in the long term for being so weak.
21 March-20 April
This could be a stressful week, especially in your working environment where you are likely to come up against people who are at best unhelpful and at worst downright hostile. There are times when you must fight for what you want. This is one of them.
21 April-21 May
By all means set yourself a target this week but don’t make it so outrageous that failure is more likely than success. You may think anything is possible, and indeed it is, but it won’t just happen as if by magic. You need to work towards your goal a step at a time.
22 May-21 June
You’ll cross swords with someone you live or work with this week and if your dispute has anything to do with money it may be a bloody encounter! According to your solar chart, compromise is out of the question so be ruthless and get it over with fast.
22 June-23 July
With aggressive Mars at odds with despotic Pluto you’ll find it hard to get your own way this week especially when dealing with authority figures. Fortunately, it’s only a phase and you should be in control again next week – if you keep your temper.
24 July-23 Aug
Don’t pursue new ideas too forcefully this week because chances are they won’t get you far and may even get you into trouble. A tricky Mars-Pluto aspect warns that you’d be wise to wait until it’s easier to develop your plans without stirring up fierce opposition.
24 Aug-23 Sept
If you are involved in anything of a financial or business nature it will pay to check the small print carefully. don’t let your enthusiasm blind you to the realities because if things don’t work out as you expected it is you who will foot the bill.
24 Sept-23 Oct
Be careful what you say and who you say it to this week. There is a chance you could make an enemy of someone who thinks you’ve singled them out for criticism. It may just be a failure of understanding on their part but you’ll be the one to suffer long term.
