Hey, babe. Your weekly horoscope for August 2-8 2021 is here—and it’s a big week. There is still a concentration of planets in Capricorn with expansive Jupiter (planet of expansion), powerbroker Pluto (planet of power), and cautious Saturn (planet of rules and foundation) all rewinding.
This retrograde influence encourages us to reflect on and review our goals, ambitions and responsibilities and adjust where needed. It can inspire powerful insights, too.
Monday brings a lively full moon in Aquarius that angles toward restless Uranus (planet of surprises) and can be a call to expect the unexpected. Feelings may be triggered by minor events, and it would be wise to avoid impulsive moves or purchases.
On the same day, lively Mercury (planet of communication) opposes sobering Saturn, so communication may be more awkward than it should be. We might also tend toward pessimism rather than optimism.
Tuesday brings a more positive influence with fiery Mars (planet of passion) squaring off with upbeat Jupiter. On the same day, brainy Mercury moves into charismatic Leo for around two weeks. On Friday, luscious Venus (planet of love) enters nurturing Cancer until September 6.
