For the week of August 18, 2004

For All Signs Jupiter, planet of hope and expansion, is making a favorable aspect to Saturn, planet of reality, for the second time this year. For the majority, this cycle is most readily visible in the career or outer world's work. Jupiter represents hope and optimism while Saturn represents pessimism and contraction. These planets have a 20-year cyclic dance and the current one began in 2000. In December of 2005 they meet in tension, which suggests a recessionary trend at that time. The inflationary trend symbolized by their favorable aspect began in late spring, 2004.

Aries This week could bring bumps and bruises if you try to move forward too quickly. Take your time, concentrate, and move gracefully. Don't attempt to force anything that doesn't readily cooperate. The period may bring the initial manifestation of a major project begun in May.

Taurus You may be wondering whether the authorities that outrank you are being altogether truthful. You may even be very clear they are not, but the circumstances require that you be quiet on the subject or the circumstances could somehow turn against you.

Gemini This looks like a good week for a family reunion. It appears that you will be thinking or talking over old times with a family member or a long time friend. You may also be tackling a repair project that has been sitting on the back burner for quite awhile.

Cancer Friendships and community contacts are a positive source of outlet for you at this time. Be who you are and you will attract help from the atmosphere. Short travels or educational ventures are favored. Financial assistance through partners or other sources is delayed.

Leo Your focus shifts this week to the area of resources, which includes finances, time, and/or energy. You may need to reorganize your priorities and set up new systems. It seems that you will be discussing this with a partner, a broker, or someone who counsels you.

Virgo You have multiple aspects this week, some easy and some more challenging. Travel, education, or legal matters are favored. Efforts to encourage friends to cooperate with each other are met with irritation. Leave it alone for awhile.You have multiple aspects this week, some easy and some more challenging.

Libra There seems to be temporary interference in love life and romance this week. One of you may not be feeling well, or is otherwise preoccupied. You could continue "on hold" while waiting to see if plans will be workable. You would rather daydream right now.

Scorpio It is possible you are tackling an educational or writing project during this period. Right now you could be experiencing interference that slows your progress. Don't give up hope. Just do what you can now and know that the path will improve soon.

Sagittarius You have no fresh aspects this week, so you will be finishing projects that are already in progress. This has been an eventful month already, and you will probably be relieved to normalize your day-to-day life. A partner is shifting gears and this keeps some plans airborne and unsettled.

Capricorn An issue involving partnership, contracts, travel, or education, requires tweaking. It isn't going to be what you thought it might, but that doesn't make it a lost cause. Often when changes are required, it is ultimately for the good, even if it doesn't match your original plan.

Aquarius You are a kindhearted soul and quick to respond to the needs of others. Meanwhile you are in dialogue with a partner or a corporate body about money or resources that are owed to you. It looks like a disagreement. Hold onto your personal freedom.

Pisces You have been restless for a long time. You may not even know what you want, just something different. This week others may present you with surprises you might never have expected. There is no requirement here, beyond noticing that there are other options in life.
