Weekly Horoscopes: August 8 – 14, 2016
Welcome to Galore horoscopes, where we’ll advise you on whether to expect drama, chill vibes, hot sex, or all of the above over the coming week.
Peep your sign’s seven-day forecast, starting Monday and ending the following Sunday, below. Pro tip: instead of your sun sign, make sure to read your rising signas it’s far more accurate.
After almost 6 months of retrograde, rigid Saturn is finally turning direct in your 9th house of higher education, religion, and long distance travel. Coupled with the energy of your planetary power ruler Mars, you are ready to change schools or even get your degree. While Saturn was retrograde, you had a ton of time to investigate various universities to find the best fit for you.
If you still haven’t decided, don’t forget that options are endless – so if you haven’t found your best yet, you will soon! Right now, you have the drive to study or explore matters related to your religious or metaphysical interests. Also, to clarify your ambitions and goals.
This week stern Saturn will finally turn direct again in your 8th house of other people’s money, shared resources, and deep intimacy. Saturn is the planet of Karma and was retrograde for almost 6 months. You might have come up with a way to pay your debts off.
Saturn is the best planet to help structure a financial plan. But be careful! Saturn’s direct power will be coupled with Mars, so anything involving intimacy could become a little aggressive, which could be hot or not. Depends on what you’re into.
Stability oriented Saturn is turning direct this week in your 7th house of partners, relationships, enemies and contracts. Hallelujah! No more passive aggressiveness between you and your partner. Saturn is a very karmic planet. I am sure you had a whole lot of relationship lessons and power struggles while Saturn was retrograde, especially with somebody from your past.
Together with Mars, the coming month’s main lesson will be: Use your full power and potential to go forward together as a team, with your partners!
This Saturday strict Saturn will finally turn direct in your 6th house of routine, health and daily work. Coupled with warrior planet Mars, you’ll have a steel stamina to start and stick to a new diet, improve your health, and maybe even change up your workout routine to see what suits you best.
You will also pay more attention to detail, which will make your boss happy. Work, ladies!
Retrograde slowed down the time for you to reach that finish line with a certain project, but this week Saturn will finally turn direct again in your 5th house of romance, creativity, and true love. Focus has been on romantic lessons and how you express yourself creatively. You probably bumped into lovers from the past where issues were still unresolved. With some people it just ain’t over til it’s over. Leos are very dramatic.
For things to be perfect in life, we sometimes need to work harder and structure our lives better. That’s Saturn’s job, basically. Desire for pleasure normally gets numbed by restrictive Saturn, but fiery Mars awakens the sexual predator in you.
On Saturday Saturn will be turning direct in your 4th house of family and home. Coupled with Mars, there has been a little tension on the home front. But now it’s time to go full speed ahead and never look back.
Mars will help you to be extra strong. In order to help others, we’ve got to help ourselves first. Now is a good time to be honest and repair family matters to strengthen the bond.
Disciplined Saturn will turn direct in your 3rd house of communication! For almost 6 months you have pretty much shut down verbally. Usually as an air sign you like to chitter chatter, but Saturn slowed you down and made you really think before you spoke.
You’re about to embark on an adventure full of conversations that will feel deeper and much more serious.
Saturn turns direct in your 2nd house coupled with fighter planet Mars! You have been spending some quality time reviewing your finances. Maybe you even got really into sticking to your budget. Saturn is the planet of Karma, and lessons about money might not have been so pleasant for you lately.
Focus on how you spend your money. Don’t just glance over and assume that everything is going to be fine. Right now you will want to become better acquainted with your own powers, past accomplishments, and future desires.
Serious Saturn will be turning direct in your 1st house of self. Together with energetic Mars, which moved into your sign 2 weeks ago, the last thing you need is someone slowing you down. Saturn reminds us of self discipline. You might’ve felt restricted in life, especially during retrograde, but Saturn will always lead to real freedom in the end. Don’t get lost in bullshit – own your mistakes as much as your triumphs.
Your planetary ruler Saturn, will finally turn direct in your 12th house of the unconscious. Warrior planet Mars is also still in that sector of your chart. Many things we repress are positive, actually. During retrograde you hopefully had time to access what you simply swept under the carpet, through meditation perhaps.
Saturn can slow life down, and Saturn retrograde even more so. Meditation in general helps us to slow life down and find our center. Even though Saturn is direct now, concentrate on spending time alone , but don’t expect overnight results. Lao Tzu said: “Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is enlightenment.”
Serious Saturn will turn direct in your 11th House of friendships and acquaintances. Friendships were probably tested, and you have now learned who is your real friend and who is fake. While fiery Mars is joining Saturn, some fights and nasty discussions could be stirred up. Saturn gives you the urge to investigate.
The 11th house is also the house of dreams. Just because Saturn is considered the reality awakening planet, that doesn’t mean you should ever give up on your dreams. When you meet people, take the nice and slow approach. There is no need to force a friendship. What will be, will be.
Steady Saturn turns direct this Saturday in your 10th house of career and reputation. Coupled with Mars, you’ll be interested in building a rock hard reputation. Your motto is: Power & structure. You probably heard it a million times, but these things take time, especially when Saturn is involved.
Don’t feel pressured by thinking you’re getting too old and that your dreams are running away. Age ain’t nothing but a number. You are going to earn the respect you deserve!
