YOU’s resident astrologer Sally Brompton reveals your horoscope for 17th-23rd August 2020. So, what does the week have in store?
24 Oct-22 Nov
It is time for a change. Not just any old change but complete transformation in the way you function. In a nutshell, you need freedom to express yourself, to be bigger than you are. You will get that freedom this week – just be sure you use it wisely.
23 Nov-21 Dec
Nothing is impossible to a Sagittarian. Some things are more difficult than others, of course, but few things defeat you completely. The Sun in leo aspects ambitious Mars this week which suggests that anything you set your mind to is unlikely to fail.
22 Dec-20 Jan
You won’t lack advice this week but it’s likely to be a bit extreme. There is someone who can offer some no-nonsense common sense guidance but you won’t get it just by opening your ears. Open your mind and listen to your inner voice.
21 Jan-19 Feb
Communication must be clear and concise this week otherwise no one will know what you want and nothing will get done, regardless of your intentions. Don’t worry about saying the wrong thing – certain people aren’t as helpless as they like you to believe.
20 Feb-20 March
With the Sun joining forces with zealous Mars you will be passionate in the extreme this week. On a professional level it means you will be determined to stay in control. Remember: no one has a heaven-sent right to take what is yours.
21 March-20 April
By tradition, Aries is the sign of the pioneer, and with your daring ruler Mars in your sign aspected by the Sun this week, an adventure is certainly on the cards. Whether it’s the kind of adventure you’re expecting is another matter, but it will be exciting.
21 April-21 May
If it is only fear holding you back, it is because Mars in Aries is making you prone to all sorts of weird and wonderful anxieties. But none of them is real and current aspects suggest that if you take a risk it could work out the way you hope, not the way you fear.
22 May-21 June
This should be a week when, no matter what you turn your hand to, it should work out better than you expected. Even if you are not an expert you can do an expert job. But don’t let success go to your head – it may not be this easy every time.
22 June-23 July
You have so much talent and potential but you seem to doubt that you have what it takes to succeed. Not only do you have what it takes but today’s Sun-Mars union suggests you’re unlikely to fail if you have the courage to follow your dreams.
24 July-23 Aug
You have no intention of hiding your feelings, so sensitive souls had best stay out of range! With the Sun, your ruler, linked to assertive Mars you are unlikely to give anyone the benefit of the doubt. Sometimes it is better to speak your mind.
24 Aug-23 Sept
Virgoans don’t often get angry but when they do they do so with a vengeance. However, this may not be the right time or place to air your grievances. By looking at the problem objectively you’re more likely to reach a satisfactory agreement.
24 Sept-23 Oct
True friends often put others’ interests first, even if it makes things harder for themselves. One such person will figure prominently this week but this time the roles will be reversed: it is they who needs help and you who can provide it. Time to repay a favour.
