For this weekly horoscope, there will be some drama on August 24th, when Mars, which is in Aries, squares off with Saturn, which is in retrograde in Capricorn. You'll be pushing limits on the 24th, with the incentive of moving past the barriers that hold you back.

Things will start to chill down on the 25th, when Mercury, which is in Virgo, gently connects with Uranus, which is retrograde in Taurus. The same day, however, Venus, which is in Cancer, opposes Jupiter, which is retrograde in Capricorn. Emotions will also take on new depths, for the better, on the 25th.

Fated connections will come your way on the 26th when Mars aspects the Nodes of Destiny. Then the 27th will bring your romantic sentiments to light when Venus links up with Neptune, which is retrograde in Pisces. And finally, Mercury and Jupiter's retrograde will open your mind to fresh visions on August 29th.

In order to have the life you want, you need to get to know yourself better. Therefore, it’s important and essential for you to reconnect with yourself this week. Spend time alone with your thoughts and meditate on your passions to ensure you’re able to live up to your potential.  


Energy is contagious. Oftentimes when you are around people who are negative, you can pick up their energy which can make you feel bad about yourself. Try to shake off their energy and always remember how amazing you are. You’re a superstar! Don’t let their energy change anything about yourself.  


If you deny yourself of your innate power, then you’ll begin to crumble on the inside. Don’t let anyone hold you back from achieving your dreams. Use your superb mind, skills, and heart to move towards greatness—no matter what the naysayers say. Don’t give up. You got this! 


Put all of your best self-care tools to work and focus on healing yourself—even though it may be tempting to focus your energies on others (who are undeserving of your time and affections). If you give yourself all of your energy, then you’ll be able to grow and expand your heart.  


You’re dealing with very intense emotions this week. You are stuck in a moment and cannot get out of it. If you allow yourself to let go of fear and embrace your strong sensibilities, then you can release all your stresses and setbacks, which will allow you to move forward.  


Instead of looking for love in other people, find the TLC you crave within yourself this week. Once you learn to love yourself more, then nothing else will matter. You’ll come to find that the relationship you desperately crave in order to be happy is a better connection with yourself.  


You’ve been rushing through tasks and chores all month. You have exhausted yourself and are in need of a rest. Take time out of your busy schedule and use it to rehabilitate yourself. You’ll find that it serves as a much-needed chance to clear your head and inner anxieties.  


Don’t take sides in an argument between two friends. Creating boundaries is important right now in order to keep your relationships intact. No matter how tempting it is to get involved—stay away from the messy drama in your squad to ensure your own peace of mind and happiness.  


You’re finding that all that glitters isn’t gold when it comes to your professional successes. In fact, you’re even reassessing your future aspirations at the moment. Instead of running away from a problem at work, try to work on it with your coworkers before you skip out on your obligations.  


It’s not the time to take on new projects, even though you’ll try to. Clear your inbox, make good on your debts, and clean out your closet. Complete old ventures in order to make space for something new, even if you don’t know what’s next. Finish what you’ve already started.  


You’re motivated to transform, but you may not be ready to leave the past behind. Before moving towards growth at a speedy rate, go at your own flow. Don’t rush the evolutionary process, as it can create other issues down the road that will be problematic if you’re not careful.  


It’s easier to give up than try. This week, you’ll want to throw your hands up and surrender, rather than give your all to projects and persevering. Believe in yourself a little more, Pisces. Give yourself more credit! You can achieve anything you want if you have faith in yourself.
