The Stars This Week: August 20-26, 2012
Follow Your Dreams!

Your intuition and determination help you make great strides this week! First, the Sun enters industrious Virgo on August 22 and opposes Neptune on August 24, when a helpful mix of practicality and spirituality provides the wind beneath your wings. Also, nothing will stop your progress on August 23, when action planet Mars enters the most determined sign of the zodiac, Scorpio. And when Mars trines Neptune on August 25, helpers and angels lend you the support you need to pursue your dreams!

Ever since Neptune entered Pisces (Virgo's opposite sign) in 2011, the Sun's entrance into ordinarily practical Virgo has become infused with Neptunian dreaminess. The analytical nature of efficient Neptune is softened by imagination, so your best plans will succeed if you listen to your intuition. Don't abandon your logical mind, though -- while you should continue to cross your t's and dot your i's, try to do it in ways that bring a little magic to the world. Decide what you'd like to accomplish, then write down your goals and set them in motion! Virgo is a sign with a great work ethic, reminding you that dreams are attainable when you commit yourself to achieving them.

August 23: Mars enters Scorpio
The action planet in investigative Scorpio can get to the bottom of anything! No matter what you desire -- whether you want to uncover secrets, invest in a cause or pursue a college degree -- this is an excellent time to go after your goals. Just make sure you do the necessary research so you're armed with the tools you need to get there. If you have a project you've been wanting to dig into, you'll be able to make significant progress on it now. Let this transit's powerful energy take you wherever you want to go!

August 25: Mars trines Neptune
The passionate, determined power of Mars in Scorpio is helped by the intuitive gifts Neptune now lends to all your efforts. Pay special attention to people and your environment so you can tune into undercurrents and emotional vibes; if you open yourself up enough, angels (both mortal and celestial) can act as your guides. There are times in life when you need to do everything by yourself. Right now, let others help you find your way.
