Your weekly horoscopes is here, for the week commencing 23rd August 2020

Astrologer Oscar Cainer lays out your weekly horoscope for the week of Sunday August 23rd to Saturday August 29th, 2020. 

VIRGO (Aug 24–Sep 23)

These days, you’d need a series of Zoom meetings and a dedicated viability study to decide the number of administrators needed to change a light bulb. In your life, similarly unnecessary questions are being asked and precious time is wasted on meaningless discussions. The good news? A key shift this week will enable progress. You’re about to know what to do and how to begin. Call 1300 017 319.

LIBRA (Sep 24–Oct 23)

Your amazing creativity is called for, but if you carry on adhering to the same set of rules you’ll struggle to achieve what you set out to do. The reality is that you have embarked on a game with no rules. Guidelines are flexible and boundaries are moveable. Once you allow yourself to understand everything is possible, you can make significant progress. Your wish might well come true. Call 1300 017 319.

SCORPIO (Oct 24–Nov 22)

Although it sometimes feels as if life is filled with trials and tests, not everything has a sting in its tail. Some things are just wonderful the way they are and hold the potential to turn out much better than we expect. Even aspects of life that seem problematic aren’t as bad as we fear. It’s much easier to write advice than act on it, but this week’s cosmic climate brings reasons for optimism. Call 1300 017 319.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23–Dec 21)

You’re an expert at trying your luck and pushing to see how far it takes you. The prospect of attempting new ideas makes your adrenaline pump. Though others may be wary of your judgement, you are confident. Since your instincts are good, you have every reason to trust them. So why are you feeling so cautious about taking a certain risk? Think about what’s behind any doubts. Call 1300 017 319

CAPRICORN (Dec 22–Jan 20)

Since you’re no stranger to hard work, doing more won’t be a problem, will it? After all, hard work is a virtue, no matter who it’s for or what it may entail. Yet sometimes it’s smart to take a little step back. Being idle involves a particular kind of intelligence, which will enable you to maximise an advantage you’ve earned. This week you need to try working smarter, not harder. Call 1300 017 319.

AQUARIUS (Jan 21–Feb 19)

You’re caught between the devil and the deep blue sea. If you follow one road forward, you risk overriding someone’s desires, and if you do what they want, someone else is disadvantaged. Argh! How will you decide? It’s impossible to keep everyone happy, but making a choice will be more empowering than sticking your head in the sand. Doing your best will be good enough. Call 1300 017 319.

PISCES (Feb 20–Mar 20)

We know that honesty is the best policy, yet there’s no guarantee that we’ll always tell the truth. Perhaps we understand that although sincerity brings about the right results, when we’re caught up in a journey an admission of guilt can create a tidal wave of blame. This week, Venus and Jupiter enable you to buy precious time. Although interest will accrue, it’s well worth the price. Call 1300 017 319.

ARIES (Mar 21–Apr 20)

When you find someone’s book intriguing, there’s nothing wrong with taking a leaf from it. Emulating those whom we find exceptional enables us to tackle new and interesting tasks. But blindly copying, without weighing up the pros and cons, is not recommended. You can’t assume that just because it works for someone else, it will work for you. You’ll find your own inspiration. Call 1300 017 319.

TAURUS (Apr 21–May 21)

You can’t please everyone. There will always be someone who thinks you’re making the wrong choice. Even if you’re walking streets paved with gold, they will be convinced you’ve made a mistake. I’m not going to recommend that you turn away from all criticism, because some points may be helpful. But don’t allow anyone to put you off embarking on an exciting plan. Call 1300 017 319.

GEMINI (May 22–Jun 22)

Some people strive for perfection. They live by high standards and aspire to noble goals. They try their very best to conduct every interaction with awareness and wisdom. Who am I talking about? You! You deserve recognition and respect for your efforts in dealing with people in the most altruistic way. You’ve focused on their needs and put your own to the side. The powerful cosmic climate will bring appreciation your way. Call 1300 017 319.

CANCER (Jun 23–Jul 23)

Who can you count on to be there for you with empathy and understanding? Do you have support or are you finding yourself tossed about on stormy seas? This week’s powerful alignments indicate that you’re being blown in the direction of someone in a similar situation to you. Together, you can form a strong support bond that will enable you to successfully traverse a challenge. Call 1300 017 319.

LEO (Jul 24–Aug 23)

If you’re wondering when a sense of peace will return to your world, it’s worth considering the implications of a quieter life. Don’t you thrive under pressure? You usually love a drama. The truth is that this week’s exceptional cosmic climate is going to pile on some pressure. No worries. It’s nothing that you can’t cope with, and there are many valuable gains to make. Call 1300 017 319.
