Get ready for a new month, babe! Your weekly horoscope for August 30-September 5 2021 is here. August and Leo’s bombastic season have slipped away from us, but don’t fret! The lovely winds of Libra Venus and Mercury (planet of communication) on Monday are here to blow us smoothly into fall.
The week opens with the moon (planet of emotions) trining Venus (planet of love), luring us into romantic fantasies and reveries. However, the moon’s trine to Saturn (planet of restrictions) on the same day reminds us to lower our heads from the clouds and take stock of our emotional domain.
Still, getting things done may be a bit of a struggle with Mars (planet of action) opposing Neptune (planet of illusion) on Wednesday. Energy will be a little lower than usual and motivation even less. But we all deserve a “down” day, so don’t be too hard on yourself! You’ll need the strength for the weekend with Venus and Mars aspecting earth-shaking Pluto (planet of destruction).
These two transits could manifest as profound feelings, passion and, if left unchecked, even power struggles. But not to worry! Even the astro-weather can get a little hairy sometimes, and Venus in its domicile, Libra, will soften the blow. Take it easy this week, check in with yourself often, and all will be well.
