Your Horoscope This Week: 28th August to 3rd September, 2022

·8-min read

The week ahead brings juxtaposing energies our way. Venus in Leo and Saturn retrograde in Aquarius oppose each other on 28th August. This can lead to us feeling as though we are misunderstood and unseen by others. Many matters will consume our minds as our investments and cash flow will reach a low. The good news is that the energy will change a few days later. Action planet Mars, who is currently in the air sign Gemini, unites with Jupiter retrograde, who is in fiery Aries, on 1st September. When these two planets come together, we can expect to see an expansion of luck, love, and emotions. The desire to conquer the world and to understand others is great as both planets are pushing us to comprehend situations from a different perspective.

<h2>Aries Sun & Aries Rising</h2><br>You will have the confidence and drive to accomplish something you’ve been putting off for a while. However, it’s important to note that it won’t be an easy task to complete. As long as you believe in your creativity and have faith in your talents, you can achieve your goals. But, for even the most self-assured ram, it can be hard to be strong and daring, especially when everyone is watching you take on an endeavour that showcases your innate talents. In true Aries fashion, you will consider this as an exciting moment to let the world know how amazing you are and how much you can do. Have faith and believe in yourself throughout the week. You got this, Aries!<br><span class="copyright">ILLUSTRATION BY BARBARIANFLOWER</span>

<h2>Libra Sun & Libra Rising</h2><br>There is an interplay between power and authority that just doesn't seem to let up. Bosses and colleagues might even try some shady moves that have you questioning your desire to work with them. These relationships need to find a compromise in order for everyone to move forward in a cohesive way. You cannot take on everything yourself. Try not to give up your own sense of peace in order for a colleague to maintain their happiness. That mindset isn't really going to remedy any snags or situations along the way. Sweeping things under the rug never served a greater purpose and being that you do not like confrontation, it will be a challenge to speak up, even though you have to. <br><span class="copyright">ILLUSTRATION BY BARBARIANFLOWER</span>
