The Stars This Week: August 19-25, 2013
Changes!

This week begins with a full Moon in Aquarius on August 20, when getting together with others opens up your world in wonderful ways! On August 21, a square between Jupiter and Uranus urges you to make major changes; a day later, on August 22, the Sun's entrance into practical Virgo helps you pull a sensible plan together. Finally, Mercury's entrance into Virgo on August 23, followed by Mercury's opposition to Neptune on August 25, pushes you to use your imagination to attain the best results possible!

August 20: Full Moon in Aquarius
Once in a great while, two consecutive full Moons occupy the same sign. Last month brought a full Moon in Aquarius on July 22, while today brings another full Moon in that same sign of the Water Bearer, lending extra attention to group efforts. Whenever the Moon is full in Aquarius, that means the Sun is in Leo, the sign of leadership. The task during this emotionally heightened time is to maintain a balance between your needs and those of others. Since Mercury in Leo conjuncts the Sun, people in charge have a great deal to say. How will these messages be received? Neptune, next to the Moon, shows some confusion, but this is still a good time to join forces with others. After all, teamwork is the Aquarian motto!

Feeling restless? Every now and then, it's necessary to move out of old ruts, patterns, and snoozy ways. Jupiter represents how you can reach out and improve your life by focusing on expanding (and bettering!) your circumstances, and its current placement in Cancer demonstrates how important your security and emotional well-being is. Uranus, the planet of change, is in Aries now, a bold sign that loves anything new, so it could be time to make important -- perhaps even radical -- changes. You may get involved in home projects or renovations, or even move into a new house. Your world is shifting, and now's the time to embrace fresh conditions -- even if they feel somewhat uncomfortable at first. If you can remain adaptable and flexible, you'll get the most out of this important aspect.

August 22: The Sun enters Virgo
As the Sun leaves showy Leo and enters sensible Virgo, you're ready to get serious about your goals! Earthy Virgo represents a smart blend of idealism and practicality, which is why so many entrepreneurs are born under this sign. If you can take steps to eliminate as many distractions as possible, you'll be able to get more done now than you have all year! Whether you want to find a new job, save money, or write a novel, tap into the work ethic of the Sun's transit through this diligent sign to make significant headway. The Sun will be in Virgo until September 22.

August 23: Mercury enters Virgo
August 25: Mercury opposes Neptune
If it weren't for Mercury's opposition to Neptune immediately after its entrance into Virgo, your mind would be crystal-clear! However, Virgo's quest for perfection will need to be put on hold while you harness the imaginative powers of Neptune for several days. Now is a wonderful time to brainstorm and dream up new solutions to long-standing problems. The more creatively you think, the more you'll accomplish. Your logical mind will return later in the week, at which point you'll be able cross your T's and dot your I's. Mercury will remain in Virgo through September 8.
