Peggy Rometo’s Star Signs, Week of August 22

What’s in the stars for you this week?

Leo (July 23 – August 22):   You have the opportunity to correct others opinions of you or to improve your position in life.  Setting new boundaries with yourself and creating goals is a necessary component to your success. Financially, look for additional information that you may need to supply in order to clear up a misunderstanding or to get funds released.  Look for a subtle hint at the beginning of the week which turns into a roar if not taken. You may run into a transportation problem or delays with transportation.  Romantically, coupled Leo’s may temporarily get side-tracked by hectic schedules and social pressures or obligations, however, still find time for one-another. Single Leo’s are happy go lucky and may even be willing to hang back for a change just to see what it’s like and how others respond. Celebrate being in charge.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22):  An unexpected turn of events may catch you by surprise. Look for ways in which you can keep your next moves close to your vest until more information is revealed. All is not what it seems. An open and shut case of “He said/She said” is never as simple as others profess. Do not be swayed by idle gossip or false promises. Stick to your gut instincts. Education, training and possible travel to exotic destinations may be in your immediate future. Financially recent bold moves have you feeling more comfortable with the status quo and the promise of more money coming in. You may have recently sold some stock or liquidated assets to fill your immediate needs. No fretting allowed as that’s what it is there for. Coupled Virgo’s may not always be on the same page these days, however, are ultimately able to table their disagreements. Single Virgos may feel anxious about jumping into the dating pool again feeling like a fish out of water. It’ll soon pass and you’ll be collecting friends like magnets. Celebrate your inner joy!

Libra (September 23 – October 22):  You have a lot going on and may feel under the gun to prove yourself or to make things happen. Others are aware of your recent push for notoriety or change. Slow down to ensure that your follow ups are as important as your initial contacts. Financially, new enterprises are opening new doors for long-term wealth and partnership. It’s an easy gig for a change. Diet and exercise may be at the top of your list to maintain your health and vitality. New information reveals an underlying symptom that could be vital to meet your long term needs. Romantically, coupled Libra’s are open to having their partner take the lead and may have recently been too tired to care. Positive shifts help to ensure you’re both getting your needs met. Single Libras are prepared to jump in without looking. Slow down as there is no need to put yourself in a compromising situation. Saying no first ultimately opens new romantic doors without having to be the aggressor. Celebrate being in the know.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21):  A magnanimous individual seeks you out for inquiry and potential partnership. Don’t rush to assume that anything is etched in stone at this point as the original concept; idea or suggestion gets altered in the end. Financially, you may be in a spending mood and looking for that perfect home, vacation spot or investment property. It’s fine to get a handle on what you want, however, resist the temptation to buy until after August 26 when Mercury goes direct. You may be concerned about another’s inability to be honest or to skirt the issue at hand. Let go of the frustration and keep moving, leaving them to deal with their mess. They’ll learn quickly enough and may eventually fess up and ask for help. Romantically, as a coupled Scorpio, you may be the instigator in planning something new and innovative for the two of you. This spontaneous act may initially frustrate your partner; it’s optimal to get their approval before committing. Single Scorpios are not tied down by anyone’s wants or needs other than their own. However, things may suddenly change when someone new steps in looking for more than just a casual fling. Welcome your ability to explore new things.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21):  A reliable individual may have some positive suggestions that impact your outlook on life. You’re dying to share your inner wisdom; however, you need an audience before you give away the goods. Resist the temptation to be careless with your communication at this time. Mercury goes direct on August 26 and will help you to align your thoughts in a way that others will benefit. A proposal is returned to you without dramatic changes for once. If this has been a persistent back and forth process, feel free to complete the details at hand, otherwise next week is better to discuss the final agreement. Financially, you discover you’re better off than you originally thought. Romantically, coupled Sagittarius’ are looking for ways to spend time with their lover, while single Sagittarius’ are ready for some fun–only to discover that others haven’t come out to play. Appreciate the down times as it’s all about to change.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19):  Your future lies in your own hands even though you may not see it that way. Recent on the job frustration may have you questioning the direction you are headed. Slow down and resist the temptation to jump ship just yet. New and improved communication is on the way when mercury goes direct on August 26. This steady improvement allows road blocks to be lifted and people coming around to your way of thinking. Financially, you may feel as if you take two steps forward and one step back. Hang in there as surprise monies find their way to you this week. No matter how small, it’s always welcome. Romantically, coupled Capricorns are resurrecting their relationships and may need to eat crow over a recent short-fuse. Action speaks louder than words if you want the response you are looking for. Single Capricorns are running the show and may feel a bit indignant about others questioning their decisions. Step back and resist the temptation to call them out, rather put your focus where it can do some good. The weekend has you hanging out with the “in crowd”. Celebrate golden opportunities coming your way.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18):  An emotional roller-coaster finally slows down long enough so that you can get off to recover. You may have recently attended a spiritual retreat or released emotional baggage from the past. This clearing opens new doors to personal power and to understanding your needs. Financially, you may uncover new funds or discover a line of credit that you forgot you had that is vital to your current situation. Your needs are met without missing a beat. It may take you a few days to get your feet on the ground and by the end of the week you’re focused and ready to tackle new challenges. You may have recently had some remodeling, painting or home repairs done only to find out the job is incomplete or sub-standard. It’s a simple case of communication and may need to be readdressed. Romantically, coupled Aquarians are comfortable with the status quo and feel at ease within the relationship for a change. Single Aquarians may be over-thinking simple gestures or communication. Let go of the struggle and just be yourself. It’s all good. Celebrate being you!

Pisces (February 19 – March 20):  You may feel as if a cloud has been lifted from over your head or that the “kick me” sign has finally been removed. You start to catch a break this week when others’ moods begin to shift positively towards you. Your hard work and focused energy is a tribute to the recent movement. Your creative flow may still feel a bit shaky; however, the end of the week brings back that familiar connection. Financially, you may have meetings scheduled to discuss your situation or to educate yourself on how best to protect your assets. Arming yourself with knowledge gives you the edge you are looking for. A friend may come forward and acknowledge a behind the scenes part they played in a challenging situation you have recently experienced. Romantically, coupled Pisces are less intellectually concerned with their relationship and more interested in being in its flow. Single Pisces may be spending time with friends from the past or reconnecting to unfulfilled dreams. Celebrate trusting your nature!

Aries (March 21 – April 19):  Your determination and methodical manner set the tone for others to follow suit, although it may be a while before you see the results of your efforts. A partnership that has been on the outs may look to reconvene with you this week. Push for your meeting to be held after August 26 so communication can be clear and misunderstandings minimized. You have a creative flair and may be yearning to express it by purchasing small accessories items or room décor items such as small pillows or pictures. Aching joints, especially in the hands or arms may stem lack of stretching or the emotional component of having to do it all. Financially, you may be made aware of an investment that didn’t perform in the manner anticipated. It’s not much of a surprise and the good news is you have many that are holding their own or doing well. Romantically, coupled Aries are tied into a new scheme together that brings strong creativity to the relationship, along with fun and future planning. Single Aries are good at picking out others’ weaknesses and are attracted to the powerful, good humored, sensitive types. You’re in luck as you may have more than one to choose from. Celebrate being in the right place at the right time.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): A non-negotiable item may be on your plate to deal with. You have the wear-with-all to see it through and let go of any nervous energy or fear of being taken advantage of. Keep things in the business zone by drawing up documents or signing papers that describe your terms or conditions. It may be optimal to wait to sign until after mercury goes direct on August 26. Financially you may be asked to take out a loan for a family member or be the sole provider for someone who is less fortunate. Stand your ground by stating your case about how much you can or are willing to do. The ball is in your court. Romantically, coupled Taurus’ watch their partner with envy and happiness appreciating their multitude of good qualities; being present to your partner makes them the happiest.  Single Taurus’ do not need to worry when it comes to attracting the opposite sex. You’ll get as much attention as you want – all you have to do is to show up! Celebrate your ability to be at the right place at the right time.

Gemini (May 21- June 20):  It’s time to release doubt and get on with it. You have the skills necessary to get a head and to make things happen. A previous encounter has you doing a double take as you reconnect with the same familiar face. Follow your instincts. You could benefit from massage or stretching, especially for your shoulders or upper body. Financially, you may be receiving money in the form of a loan or generous gift to make your life easier. A strong willed individual assists you in moving in the right direction if you are willing to ask for their help. There’s no time like the present. Romantically, coupled Gemini’s may be feeling refreshed and exuberant while steadily approaching life together. Single Gemini’s may be thrown for a loop when a surprise disappointment comes your way. No worries, it’s their loss. The end of the week has you off and running in a new and positive direction if you are willing to play. Celebrate your ability to see the silver lining!

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Hard work, effort and focus are part of this week’s energy available to support you. Getting organized is key to staying on top of your to do list and to remain productive. A new invitation comes your way with strings attached, of which you are more than happy to comply. You may feel a bit awkward this week when you cross paths with someone who no longer sees you as perfect. Keep your chin up and stay happy. There’s no need to backstab or to feel threatened. Financially, you have the ability to help yourself and to make money. However, it requires effort and focus. Do the behind the scenes effort and do your promotion after August 26 when mercury retrograde is over. Romantically, coupled Cancer’s are torn between saying what they think and what their heart feels. Stick to the facts and resist the temptation to dramatize. Your partner will melt in your arms if you do. Single Cancer’s are playful and energetic and can pretty much call the shots. Just don’t get too full of yourself or others will drop you like a bad habit. Celebrate the unfolding process of life!
