Your HelloGiggles horoscope, August 25th to 31st: Free yourself of the stale routines holding you back
It is full blown Virgo season, as we now have the Sun, Mars, and Venus in the sign. And—drum roll, please—we also have a grandiose trine of all the Virgo planets to Uranus in Taurus, great master of change and innovation.
This week allies the best of both worlds. Not only are we practical, grounded, analytical, and hardworking, but we’re also ready to rock the boat and dedicate our energy to innovative ideas—freeing ourselves of stale routines that don’t serve us and rebelling against people, situations, and things that require us to be inauthentic. As the week progresses, this energy gets more potent, giving us extra strength, extra dedication, and extra creativity.
Let’s take a look at the weekly horoscope for each sun sign. Don’t forget to check your rising sign if you know it, too.
This week is all about filling up your own cup and retrieving your balance after excesses. It can feel very emotionally expressive, as you still have Mercury in your love sector, and you can feel very keen on expressing yourself with great authenticity. You’re welcome to do so, but remember to focus on re-finding your balance and maintaining a routine that supports your health and mental health. Love, sure. But you yourself have to be balanced before you add someone else to the equation.
Ask, and it’s given. This week is about manifesting your wildest desires—and they might be of a romantic nature. Whether they are or not, remember to ask for what you want—pray, write it down, set your intentions—and it’s yours. The energy is flowing for you, and the only mistake you could make would be to be too arrogant or smug. Remember to be humble and kind, and take a pause to count your blessings.
You’re traveling down memory lane this week, Gemini. It’s a time to take a break and focus on your childhood memories, on your inner life, on your emotional world, and on your automatic responses. You could feel tempted to take an ex back this week. Each situation is different, but before you do, make sure that you are (re)connecting with yourself and exploring ALL of your emotions, even the painful ones. The more emotionally honest you are with yourself this week, the less drama you’ll encounter.
You have a lot of mental activity this week, and you could feel a tad overwhelmed mentally. Make sure to slow down the pace, both in your head and in your life, and be particularly careful around dangerous objects (knives, cars, engines, fire). You could also feel particularly cutting with your words this week, and failing to slow down could cause you a few unnecessary conflicts. Look into non-violent communication and turn your tongue seven times before speaking.
Leo, there is no stopping you this week. Your energy is through the roof. You know what you want and you’re going after it with confidence and determination. You feel fairly mentally clear and you’re going after your goals—which are mostly material—with great energy. Do be mindful of not being overly abrasive or cocky, though. Learn from Virgo energy and show your most humble and modest side, despite what might be going on underneath the hood.
What a time to be alive, Virgo! This week you feel peaceful, abundant, fertile, and like the gates of heaven just opened for you. Okay, I might be painting an over-the-top picture, but it is a week during which you can experience peace, abundance, joy, and an overall feeling of pleasantness. You have great energy to dedicate to your goals and you don’t feel rushed one bit.
You feel quite hazy this week, Libra. It’s like you have so many options to choose from but you’re not sure which one is best. So you just stay hanging, daydreaming about the optimal path to choose. Do note that you can be the victim of illusions and fantasies this week. If you’re creative or not acting on your inner life, that’s totally fine. Indulge in your dreams and nurture your imagination; just be sure not to make any life-altering decisions this week, especially if your thinking and selling points are hazy and uncertain. It’s not a good time to do so. In love, you might have many options; and for now, it’s best not to pick.
Scorpio, I have been saying it for weeks: You’re dedicated to your success and long-term goals. Here’s the thing: You’re still not quite where you want to be, and you still need a bit more time to get there. Remember to enjoy the journey and let go of the pressure to be at the finish line. You will get the results you want; just remember that right now, all the planets are pretty much retrograde, and you will get the results you seek later on. Keep working!
It’s a time of celebration for you, Sagittarius. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the fruits of your efforts. You’re called to enjoy, celebrate—and perhaps take a trip? See friends you haven’t seen in a while or join a community of like-minded people. It’s a time to celebrate a new relationship, honor a new collaboration, and overall, have a good time.
This energy feels utterly freeing for you, Capricorn. And if you struggled lately with toxic ties, negative energies, and an overall feeling of being trapped or stuck, this week is bringing you the tools necessary to free yourself. You had the keys all along and you’re realizing that this week, which allows you to move forward and enter more positive realms. This week feels very “caterpillar turning into a butterly,” so fly on out.
The energy is a bit at odds with your values, Aquarius. Virgo energy isn’t necessarily your cup of tea, and this week might trigger feelings of dissatisfaction, especially in your relationships. Don’t pay too much attention to the advice you receive this week (I do get the irony!), as it could represent poor counsel. If you have a decision to make in regards to a relationship, partnership, or collaboration, or if you’re asking the input of other people in order to make a decision, it’s best to wait it out.
I’ve said it for a few weeks now, and it’s not any different this week: You need to simultaneously give yourself a break by adopting a schedule that is kind and respectful of your needs, and yet, not give up. You could feed defeated, tired, or out of alignment. And as much as this is temporary and should not push you to quit or give up on your goals, this fatigue does require your attention. Don’t burn yourself out, and listen to your body. It’s okay to need rest.
