Your weekly horoscope

Your week in the stars

By Alison Moroney

ARIES Mar 21 - Apr 20

Lady Luck is on your side during the weeks between August 26 and September 20, as Venus transits your fifth solar house. Romance will also bring happiness into your life, with September 12-19 being exceptional days. Apart from stimulating your creative talents, a child or children could touch your heart then.

TAURUS Apr 21 – May 21

With Venus in Leo, many Taureans will beautify their home environment in some way in the weeks until September 20, whether this is achieved through social activities within the home or the adornment of it. You will take pleasure in the little things you do around the home, even in the completion of mundane tasks. Some of you will be working from home.

GEMINI May 22 – June 22  

Improving associations with neighbours, relatives and work mates are witnessed during the twenty-five days from August 26. Stronger integration between your daily life and children, or romance, is likely. You will appreciate the beauty in things you normally would not notice. September 12-19 activate these trends.

CANCER Jun 23 – Jul 23 

Money will flow more readily between August 26 and September 20, coming from property related matters or the assistance of a friend. September 12-19 trigger events in relation to these trends, with the most positive days being September 12-19. The other dates will be challenging.

LEO Jul 24 - Aug 23

There will be a flurry of social activity in the twenty-five days from August 26, as Venus heightens your personal magnetism during its transit of your sun sign. Apart from improving prestige, there will be a magical, soothing influence in your words and more involvement with loved ones, especially on September 12-19.

VIRGO Aug 24 - Sep 23

Your associations with in-laws, professionals and academics may generally pose a few problems, although these do not seem to be too troubling. However, these experiences will be well worthwhile, as will any effort invested until September 20. Virgo will also find enjoyment in time snatched for themselves, especially on September 12-19.

LIBRA Sep 24 - Oct 23  

Until September 20 you are likely to achieve some of those special dreams that are dear to your heart. You’ll also savour the companionship of treasured friends, especially on September 12-19, even though there may be sorrow at a parting or through sharing their problems. Extra money is likely to be coming your way.

SCORPIO Oct 24 - Nov 22 

Many Scorpio individuals will reap the benefit of their solo and often unrecognised efforts in the twenty-five days from August 26, provided they haven’t left any loose ends around to create embarrassment. Your love life also receives a boost during this period, whilst partnerships tend to be more profitable than usual.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 23 - Dec 21 

Students will be pleased with their efforts between August 26 and September 20, as good exam results are earned and studies prove to be a pleasurable experience. Those with travel plans or involved in a legal matter will be happy with the way things shape up, especially on September 12-19.


Money matters are favourably highlighted until September 20, particularly those involving loans, insurance, taxation, legacies or joint financial resources, especially on September 12-19. Unfortunately, there may also be worries about “appearances” or problems with a child within the family circle, although these are more likely to be general in nature.


Until September 20 Aquarian love relationships will flourish and business partnerships will thrive. Generally, the companionship of others is more enjoyable than usual: even contacts with strangers will be more pleasant, with no exception. However, September 12-19 fulfils the positive potential of these trends.


Those Pisceans awaiting developments with work, will hear pleasing news in the twenty-five days from August 26. Fundamental changes are indicated, proving to be beneficial. Life will also thrive on the many pleasantries discovered in daily routines and conversations, whether at work or elsewhere. Action can be expected on September 12-19.
