The Stars This Week: August 12-18, 2013
Listen!

This week brings plenty of conversations as Mercury forms multiple aspects. First, as Mercury quincunxes Pluto on August 13, you take in information that makes you consider something with a fresh, new perspective. Then, on August 14, Mercury trines Uranus and squares both the north and south nodes, bringing stimulating and challenging verbal exchanges. Finally, your social life improves dramatically once Venus enters Libra on August 16!

August 13: Mercury quincunxes Pluto
As confident as you may feel with Mercury in bold Leo, today Pluto asks you to think more about what you want to achieve, rather than how much you'd like to get noticed. If you have a clear goal and are able to not only keep your ego in check, but successfully communicate your ideas, you're bound to receive valuable assistance. You may need to adjust some of your plans, but it'll be worth it in the long run!

August 14: Mercury trines Uranus and squares the north and south nodes
Today brings a mixed message, so pay close attention! On one hand, you receive support for your ideas from innovative, creative people; on the other hand, you'll find it difficult to secure financial backing due to Mercury's square to the north node in Scorpio and the south node in Taurus, each a money sign. Make sure all agreements or contracts are thoroughly vetted before you sign on any dotted lines.

August 16: Venus enters Libra
As Venus enters its own sign, you won't want to be alone! This is a wonderful chance to spend quality time with your partner or get together with friends. During the length of this transit (through September 10), make a point to get out more. Go to parties, plan a trip, or hire a babysitter so you can enjoy an evening out with your partner. If you're single and looking for love, don't wait on the sidelines -- get out of the house! Finally, if you've experienced a recent conflict with someone, this transit presents an ideal opportunity to mend fences.
