Discipline + Imagination = Success!
If you work hard this week, you’ll see progress when it comes to reaching your goals! Use the disciplined energy of August 25’s Mars-Saturn conjunction to help you check a few items off your to-do list. You’ll need the extra time you gain to figure out your relationships once Venus first squares Saturn on August 26, then Mars on August 27! Toward the end of the week, on August 29, the Sun’s opposition to Neptune gives you a chance to stand back and see how far you’ve come in your pursuit of your dreams!
August 25: Mars conjuncts Saturn
You won’t be able to fritter your time away now as the action planet is held in check by authoritative Saturn. Don’t grow frustrated, however! While you may not get to do everything you hope, this is a good time to think more specifically about what you want to do — and why. Use the strength of this conjunction in Scorpio to help you cultivate discipline and patience. Saturn is ready to remind you that a job isn’t worth doing if it isn’t done properly, so help yourself now by rolling up your sleeves and tackling the tasks you know you need to get done!

August 26: Venus squares Mars
August 27: Venus squares Saturn
Sometimes the person you like is not the person you desire; sometimes the person who intrigues you is not good for you. As Venus, the relationship planet, squares the Mars-Saturn conjunction, you may encounter an individual who has clout, but is definitely not the warm and fuzzy type! Venus in Leo loves to have a good time and be the center of attention, while Mars and Saturn in Scorpio don’t like to spill secrets as they also make sure you aren’t breaking any rules. Be extra-thoughtful now about how you relate to people — and how they relate to you.
August 29: The Sun opposes Neptune
Mixing practical considerations with imaginative solutions helps you create a goal you have a solid chance of reaching. This opposition takes place midway in Neptune’s retrograde cycle, which gives you the perfect opportunity to stand back and assess your progress. How far have you come? Let go of any fantasies holding you back so you can grab hold of a realistic dream. Keep moving forward even though you’re unsure how everything will turn out. For now, familiar landmarks and signposts are missing, but you’ll still be able to turn this into an advantage as you tap into a greater vision of your life’s future!
