Your Weekly Horoscope: Week of August 20th

Your horoscope for the week of August 14 to August 20, 2023, is here, and there’s a silver lining in the stars if you know where to look for it.

It’s been a cruel summer since Venus stationed retrograde in Leo on July 22, 2023, and it'll stay that way until Venus goes direct on September 3, 2023. Venus is the planet of romance and relationships; for the six weeks this retrograde lasts, love is a dangerous game. The Venus Cazimi in Leo on August 13, 2023, marked the halfway point for this retrograde and birthed the beginning of a new Venus cycle. Like the lunar phases, Venus moves through a cosmic cycle, disappearing into the night as an evening star and combusting the Sun to rise again as the morning star. This week, she disappears to venture deep into the shadows in order to emerge resolute on the other side.

The Sun and Uranus will square off on August 15, 2023, causing more trouble than you asked for or have the patience to deal with. This disruptive transit can range from mildly annoying to downright catastrophic. Don’t expect to follow your normal routine or stick to your to-do list while these two fight it out in the sky. There’s a lot of push-and-pull energy right now, and you need to mentally process the changes around you before you can deal with them emotionally. Trying to control the situation or stick to business as usual will only tempt the Universe into making things more weird and complicated for you. Instead, try letting your carefree side express itself freely.

Finally, on August 23, 2023, a New Moon in Leo is bringing a fresh start. During this lunation, the Sun and Moon will be conjunct with the sky's most demanding divas, Lilith and Venus in Leo. Lilith represents your dreams and fears, and Venus shows how you attract and manifest your desires. When these celestial bodies align – it’s a magical moment to make a change. You've been facing your doubts and insecurities for the first two weeks of Venus retrograde. Now that Venus has survived her cazimi inferno, she’s reintroducing herself to the world as the morning star and inviting you to do the same.

Aries Weekly Horoscope

You’re here to find yourself, Aries, and part of that process means getting lost. Venus retrograde has been particularly heavy on your heart for the last few weeks. And lately, it’s felt like all your energy has been spent living in the past. You’re in a season of subtle shifts, which can feel agonizingly slow for a motivated person like you. But these seemingly insignificant moments are where the magic happens. Aries are learning how to navigate the journey of life with patience and perseverance – without sacrificing pleasure. And the New Moon in Leo re-teaching you how to have fun and shamelessly flaunt your joy.
