The Stars This Week: August 5-11, 2013
Go For It!

This week begins with a fun new Moon in Leo on August 6, when you're sure to command plenty of attention! Then, as Jupiter opposes Pluto on August 7, do everything you can to keep your personal and professional lives in balance. On August 8, tell people exactly what you think as Mercury leaves sensitive Cancer to enter confident Leo. Just make sure you can back up what you say when Mercury squares strict Saturn on August 11!

August 6: New Moon in Leo
A new Moon always signals a fresh beginning, and this one in the Fire sign of Leo is sure to ignite your creativity and passion! Don't let anything hold you back from pursuing your goals now. Exciting Uranus in bold Aries trines this new Moon, demonstrating that the more original you are, the more likely you are to get the attention and help you need. This is an ideal time to start a new hobby, sign up for a class, or accept invitations to events and parties. Whatever you do, start something, whether you choose to pursue a dream, goal, idea, plan, or project. As always at any new Moon, invest in something that you'd like to see become more important in your life. The power of this new Moon is in effect until the next full Moon, which takes place on August 20.

August 7: Jupiter opposes Pluto
Jupiter is currently traveling through the sensitive homebody sign of Cancer. In this opposition to powerful Pluto in ambitious Capricorn, you have the opportunity to assess how your home base can provide a foundation for your worldly pursuits. Strong, nurturing family ties can give you the strength and sustenance to pursue your dreams, while a solid self-care plan can give you everything you need to go out into the world. Figure out how you can best support yourself by balancing your personal needs with your commitments to others.

August 8: Mercury enters Leo
August 11: Mercury squares Saturn
If you've been waiting to share your ideas with others, or if you want someone in particular to notice you, now is the time to speak up -- people are ready to listen to whomever can grab their attention! You'll command respect now if you're confident and willing to talk up your original ideas. Keep in mind, though, that as Mercury moves toward its square with Saturn, people will also expect you to have done your homework and be able to answer their questions. This is no time to wing it -- make sure you know what you're talking about!
