Psychic Dream Astrology: August 15-21


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

You are exactly where you need to be, and perfectly poised to make the best of your situation. If there are any troubles nagging you this week, look for creative solutions that are both moderate and bold. Nothing extreme is necessary, but the more authentic you are, the more courage it will take.


April 20-May 20

Your anxieties are not -- I repeat, not -- intuition, and should not be treated as such. Support your frayed thinking with the gift of peace by taking the pressure off this week. Do not make decisions or evaluate your options when you're head spins, Taurus. You are ready to do your thing, so don't let worry stop you.


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

If you get bogged down in the details of he said/she said thinking you'll miss the big picture, Cancer. This week you should strive to understand the deeper dynamics that are at play in your relationships instead of reacting to how you feel right now only. Understand your role so that you might change it.


July 23-Aug. 22

You need to slow your roll so that you can make the kinds of decisions that you will actually follow through with, Leo. Instead of chasing your passions and making changes from there, calmly assess what you need and how to best get it. You are almost there, so don't screw up now.


Aug. 23-Sept. 22

This is no time to be holing up, Virgo. No matter what is going on in your life, this week you should reach out to others. The energy is there for you to broaden your intimacies, and the more you work with that, the better it will be. Share of yourself and what you give you will get back in spades.


Sept. 23-Oct. 22

Change is inevitable and if you can harness your willingness to let things grow, even if you don't understand what they're growing into, you will get the most from your situation. If you're overwhelmed take some time to regroup this week, but don't halt the shifts that have been set in motion, Libra.


Oct. 23-Nov. 21

You are ready to take responsibility for yourself, pal. Being humble means there's no pity party for your part, and being strong means you don't use your power over others. Deal directly with your life as it is right now. That way you will find that you are way more capable than you think you are.


Nov. 22-Dec. 21

Think of this week as the beginning of something meaningful. You are at the gateway of seeing with more clarity, so take extra care in deciding where ya look, Sag. Trust your instincts and ability to go to the next level, but don't forget that you need to have intimacy with others for your long-term happiness.


Dec. 22-Jan. 19

Be yourself, Capricorn! Do not compromise who or what you are this week, even if it would seem easier to do so. You can be diplomatic and work with others without diluting your realness, and it's worth the extra effort to do so. Your relationships needn't happen exclusively on your terms, but they must have room for you.


Jan. 20-Feb. 18

It's hard to make good use of your opportunities if you don't know what you really want. This week your understanding of your own objectives is going to be challenged, and the better you know yourself, the easier it will be to rise to the occasion. Take responsibility for your choices and how you make them, Aquarius.


Feb. 19-March 20

What do you truly want, Pisces? As you answer that question, make sure you are not being too influenced by your ego's drives. Don't keep up with the Jones' this week, even if your particular Jones is a social activist yoga teacher with great hair. Set goals that are true to yourself, and trust that to be good enough.
