Psychic Dream Astrology: August 8-14


Mercury is direct! Expect things to return to running as smoothly as they typically do (or don't.)


March 21-April 19

Don't let your fears of upsetting experiences stymie you, or you may miss out on awesome opportunities. There's a battle of the bands between the sweet sounds of openhearted fearlessness, and the tangled beat of your suspicions. You can get where you wanna be, but you've gotta be strong, Aries.


April 20-May 20

If you cling to the relationships and situations that you've outgrown, you may find yourself unwittingly fighting the very forces of change you currently need. Instead of wishing things were another way, accept where they're at; only then can you move forward and make much needed improvements.


May 21-June 21

You cannot control the winds of fate, but you can adjust your sail. When fear loosens its grip on your mind, it's amazing what you can all of a sudden accomplish. This week you may be able to see through situations that have seemed immoveable and perceive new pathways. Don't be scared of acting differently.


June 22-July 22

Achieving happiness is the greatest goal you can set for yourself, moon child. This week you must stay on guard against settling into illusions that make you content, versus giving you real and lasting joy. Be yourself in all you do so that you can properly gauge what will work for you in the long term.


July 23-Aug. 22

The way to effectively deal with the mess in front of you is to take it apart, piece by piece. Throw away what doesn't work and put things back together in a more functional way, Leo. Edit your world so that it grows more in the places you love, and not so much in the spots you're just tolerating.


Aug. 23-Sept. 22

You need patience to carry you through this week. Now is the time to look inside yourself to see what you feel, think, and need. Your circumstances may be pressuring you to be decisive, just when you've hit a wall in the knowing department. Simplify your options and trust your gut, Virgo.


Sept. 23-Oct. 22

This week, when you find yourself over thinking your options and painfully lamenting your situation, know that you are in no state to be making decisions. Clear up your insides before you start trying to handle your outsides, Libra. Create from a place of creativity, not panic, for best results.


Oct. 23-Nov. 21

As counterintuitive as it may feel, this week you need to confront your fears head on. It takes way more energy to put mega-stressful things off then it does to deal with them. Even if you have to fake it, show valor in the face of the things that are freaking you out, Scorpio.


Nov. 22-Dec. 21

It's all about beginnings for you right now. How you start a thing has so much to do with how it goes. Make certain that you consider your emotional needs in your dealings, but do it without letting your feelings cloud your judgment. You should strive to put your all out there this week, Sag.


Dec. 22-Jan. 19

Your fears this week are informed by reality, but in that way that movies are made: with much drama. You're a specialist in exaggerating your worst case scenarios, Cappy! Let history be your guide as you assess possible dangers, and try to put most of your focus on the good that is possible for you here and now.


Jan. 20-Feb. 18

You need to believe enough in yourself to be able to stand up and speak out when the need is there, Aquarius. Instead of fighting this week, your needs will be best served by staying true to yourself. Only participate in what is right for you, don't let others incite you to act in ways you'll later regret.


Feb. 19-March 20

Your circumstances are set to change, and the best thing you can do is to change right alongside them. Focus on your material needs this week so you can get the pragmatic stuff going in the direction you want them. For best results, take problems that arise as indicators of where you need to focus your attention.
