The astrology forecast for the week of August 9, 2021 – August 15, 2021, features three aspects (Venus square Neptune, Mercury oppose Jupiter, and Venus trine Pluto) and a sign change for Mercury.
One thing to note is that all cosmic energy takes place between Monday and Wednesday, and then the rest of the week is just lunar activity.
Let’s dive in…
Monday, August 9, 2021
The week begins with Venus opposing Neptune in Pisces. If you have too many expectations or your relationships are rooted in fantasy rather than reality, difficulties may surface. You may also feel let down, disappointed, or outright deceived by your partner(s). It would help if you stayed away from victim mindsets, because it may lead to emotional manipulation or controlling behavior. Boundaries may be necessary, but try not to put too many demands on your relationships, especially if you are frustrated. Instead, it’s best to acknowledge your feelings and wait until your emotions do not lead to acting hastily. If you are currently single, avoid starting a new relationship at the beginning of the week.

Although the Venus oppose Neptune aspect peaked yesterday, some residual gunk may linger on Tuesday. However, the clouds should part later in the day as Mercury opposes beneficial Jupiter before he leaves the sign of Leo.
Now since this aspect is an opposition, there are a few things to watch out for. First, your ideas may be short on details, so you need to try to pause before taking a risk. Second, try not to go ‘too’ overboard. A little restraint is necessary.
The good news is your temperament should be optimistic. It’s a great day for business transactions, negotiations, and planning. If your plans are well-thought-out, they should prove successful.
Wednesday, August 11, 2021
Wednesday is the busiest day of the week, with Mercury moving out of bombastic Leo and into orderly Virgo and Venus forming a harmonious trine to Pluto in Capricorn.
First up, Mercury is in dignity, being the Virgo’s ruler, so he can offer resources in the part of your chart where Virgo is located.
While Mercury is in Virgo, the devil is in the details, and you will want plenty of them. It’s an excellent time to focus on activities that need precision and focus. You can do this by organizing your space, making minor changes to your routine that make your life more efficient and manageable, and making strategic plans. Additionally, since Virgo is the sign associated with health and well-being, it’s a great time for lifestyle changes.
Later in the evening, Venus forms a harmonious trine to Pluto. In the forecast for Monday, I said to hold off on making emotional decisions if you experience disappointments in relationships. Well, Venus trine Pluto is an opportune time to do so. Venus trine Pluto is persuasive, so you can get your views heard, and there is an increased likelihood that you will get the results you want. However, regardless of the aspect, you will get better results with honey than vinegar. Try to reach an acceptable accord, if possible.
Thursday, August 12, 2021
The Moon moves through fair and diplomatic Libra. This gives some added support to the Venus trine Pluto that occurred yesterday. It’s an auspicious day to reach an agreement or formalize decisions. In addition, the Moon forms a lovely trine to Saturn, so business activities and responsibilities should flow smoothly.
Friday, August 13, 2021
The Moon continues her trip through Libra most of the day, but she does tangle with Pluto during the morning hours. Intense emotions may try to steal your joy, especially if you are dealing with people on a power trip. Later in the day, the Moon will trine joyful Jupiter, and your evening hours should be more uplifting.
Saturday, August 14, 2021
The Moon spends her first full day in Scorpio and forms a tense square to Saturn during the morning hours. You may experience minor frustrations, but these should fade during the afternoon hours. Expect restless feelings during the evening hours as the Moon opposes Uranus.
Sunday, August 15, 2021
The Moon is still in Scorpio throughout the day on Sunday. La Luna forms a lovely trine to Neptune during the morning hours, so it’s an excellent day to escape the real world and enjoy some downtime. Perhaps a movie or good music would be a wonderful way to recharge your batteries and prepare to seize another day.
See you next week!
