Psychic Dream Astrology: August 1-7


Mercury is Retrograde until the seventh! Only one last week of navigating the perils of your texts coming in out of order.


March 21-April 19

Things shouldn't need to be perfect in order for you to be generous, Aries. Your sign has a reputation of being selfish, but what's closer to true is that your impulses make you act before you think. Don't react to what you're feeling without first considering the needs of those around you this week.


April 20-May 20

When your head starts spinning it's time to slow down and figure out what you're really feeling under all that mess, Taurus. Feeling whacked out as you try to move ahead makes your thinking off the mark. Simplify things inside of yourself until you feel grounded enough to move forward this week.


May 21-June 21

You need to make some big changes, Gemini, but you'll do best to focus on small adjustments this week. Instead of worrying about next month or next year, keep your immediate goals in mind and do what needs to get done day by day. Tend to the details that make up the big picture for now, pal.


June 22-July 22

Your desire for intimacy and a rich family life should not trump your need to be authentically yourself. Do not compromise your needs as you forge those relationships Cancer. Stay checked in with yourself so that you can gauge the difference between healthy compromise and what compromises you.


July 23-Aug. 22

The thing about love is that it can get pretty screwed up by fear. No matter how powerful the good vibes you get from the loves in your life, you need to confront the fears that may be limiting you from living in the light of even greater affection. Don't let what might be wrong block what might be right, Leo.


Aug. 23-Sept. 22

Don't give up and don't give in, Virgo! If you have a stuck situation that seems hopeless, you've got choices, you're not stuck. You can leave the situation or change yourself within it. Even if you don't like your options, strive to minimize damage by being willing to work with what you've got.


Sept. 23-Oct. 22

It's out with the old and in with the new for you! Concentrate on what you want, Libra. Stop participating in old dynamics in the old ways that bring you to the same place over and over again. Release your attachments from the past to make room for what you really want for your life.


Oct. 23-Nov. 21

You just don't know 'till ya know, Scorpio. Instead of obsessing on things, try clearing out your headspace. Focus on being so grounded that you can handle whatever comes your way. You can't control or fix your life, but you can make today the most comfortable version of itself possible, so get to it.


Nov. 22-Dec. 21

Be open to learning new things this week. The key is to not get lost in a sensory overload, but to use your discretion with what you put your time, energy and faith into. You need to express what's true for you, but if you dig a little deeper you may better understand what that is, Sag.


Dec. 22-Jan. 19

When you don't know what's right it's best to hang back a bit. You have a habit of trying to manage your environment or the people around you to get best results, and that ain't all bad, but certainly won't help you this week. Let stuff develop and reveal themselves to you at their own pace.


Jan. 20-Feb. 18

Just 'cause things are not what you want them to be doesn't mean that you need to shut down, even if you can't see a way to make them better yet. This week you may need to remember your options are greater than you can see. Don't stop being present, even if right now overwhelms you.


Feb. 19-March 20

Practice fearlessness, Pisces. You are so capable, but you need to be daring enough to try things out so you can prove that to yourself. Make plans and execute them thoughtfully this week. Rely on yourself and you will learn what you need to about your strengths and what needs greater attention.
