Peggy Rometo’s Star Signs, Week of August 8

What’s in the stars for you this week?

Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Repercussions from past events may catch up with you this week in a merciful way. Look for ways you can start over and find peace of mind without fear of repeating previous mistakes. Others look to give you second chances and new beginnings. Small steps taken in the right direction build a firm foundation for lasting wealth and enjoyment. A serious individual needs help letting go of a challenging situation and may seek you out for counsel or support. Financially, unexpected monies find their way into your hands at the end of the week. You may find remedies for heartburn or other digestive issues this week, beginning with home remedies or new dietary restrictions. Romantically, coupled Leo is settled and happy in a budding new routine and exciting creative endeavor. Single Leo is able to get out of their own head to pursue new relationships or rejoin an old familiar flame. Since mercury is in retrograde, be aware that whatever form it takes will adjust again next month. Celebrate your newfound clarity and courage to do the right thing!

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
An unusual situation unfolds, giving you an opportunity to help someone in need. They may not be aware that they are the benefactor of your friendship or generosity, due to their strained state of affairs. It’s just as well, giving you an opportunity to contribute anonymously. Frustration regarding a business matter is replaced with a hopefulness and clarity. This retrograde period gives you an opportunity to go back to clients or business associates for new ideas, contracts and work. You may be battling a case of the blues or missing someone you love. Staying busy, getting creative and making new friends eases the temptation to radically change your situation or to long for the past. On the positive side, old flames and friends may come knocking looking for a renewed connection. Romantically, coupled Virgo is decisive and playful with their partner, and knows how to get the most out of them. They willingly comply. Single Virgo is moving forward and surrounded by tempting opportunities. Celebrate your ability to attract all good things!

Libra (September 23 – October 22)
You have found your voice and have no trouble using it. Make sure to ask for assistance with existing partnerships or revamping old endeavors; you have the power to alter previous results and do not need others’ permission to proceed. The ball is in your court. Resist the temptation to start brand new endeavors, as mercury is retrograde and will invariably alter the final outcome while creating unnecessary challenges. Continue to conceal new ideas until mercury moves forward at the end of the month. Promised phone calls and expected invitations may be delayed as others get caught up in life’s challenges. IRS issues, tax dilemmas, court degrees, and other governmental communications may continue to be evasive. You may have an opportunity to get back an exercise or diet routine that worked in the past. Children may return home or you may receive visits from family or friends. Higher-ups may assign you a new task or invite you to be included in a new adventure that has been in the works behind the scenes. Media-related endeavors get the green light and give you the impetus to be involved. You may find yourself spending time studying, creating or participating in music, theater, dance, and writing opportunities. Romantically, coupled Libra relies on their partner and works together for common goals. Single Libra needs to watch their sensitivity and not allow others choices to make themselves feel left out or unimportant; focus on the things you love to do that give you joy. Celebrate dreams coming true!

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
A financial concern or burden is lifted as others go to bat for you. You may have a traffic fine waived or a lawsuit dropped that was invalid. This financial windfall is not about what comes in this week, but about releasing you from a potential debt. A friend or relative from the past may look you up or bump into you unexpectedly. Airfare, hotels and itinerary changes may be in the picture if you are traveling this week. Prepare for the unexpected. You may be worried about an individual who seems to be chasing her tail. Let things run their course; to intervene at this juncture will only cause a disagreement. During the latter part of the week, you are finally able to resolve an issue that you were previously unsure about the right way of handling. Trust the information to be relevant as it is presented. Romantically, coupled Scorpio looks for ways to step out of the box together. Single Scorpio savors moments that others pour on the affection and attention; trust your instincts, as this is temporary. Celebrate your ability to read between the lines!

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
You may be calculating when to make new announcements or trying to rally support for new ideas. It’s advisable to wait a few weeks when mercury moves out of retrograde, when others will then be able to see the full potential. A feeling of loss or an inability to control your current situation may feel maddening; however, letting go will be easier this week as you step back and allow things to fall apart. In doing so, you are likely to see new pieces that will create successful endeavors. Tempers may flare and you may get caught in the crossfire; minimize trouble by being the one who stays calm. Romantically, coupled Sag may be sparring about things that don’t matter. Being on guard will assist you in keeping the peace. Single Sag is less likely to jump in and take control this week, opting instead for a wait-and-see approach. You’ll find this break gives you the renewed spirit and enthusiasm you have recently been lacking. Celebrate standing up for yourself without having to shout it to the world!

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
A smart individual looks for ways to get your attention and hold it. They are sensitive to your lack of interest and are hopeful it is only their imagination. You may need to revisit an earlier conversation to obtain the comfort and support you are looking for. It’s ok to contact superiors or others that have your back. A break in communication may cause you to erupt; you have the ability to take a deep breath and keep moving. Others may be sensitive to your harsh words, causing you more frustration than it’s worth. Financially, Cap may enjoy preaching to others about what to do; this week, you’ll have the opportunity to keep your mouth shut and to learn by doing from an expert. If so, you’ll find new monies by the end of the week. Romantically, coupled Cap is picky about the time their partner is spending on what they deem frivolous things. If you don’t want a war, let it go and focus on what you see them doing that is right. They’ll then follow you anywhere. Single Cap is resilient and may get knocked down by an unexpected no or turn-down. Don’t take it personally, as the timing is not the best to start new relationships. Celebrate new beginnings!

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
You get time off for good behavior this week and are able to carry a lighter load than usual. Financially, you may see a large gap to where you would like to be. No worries, as good news arrives with several options at your disposal — anything from cutting down office space and expenses, to sharing space, to new business or employment opportunities. You’re set for new adventures and spiritual awakenings. Don’t be surprised if you are picked for a special honor or get to meet with a prominent individual. New ideas flow, and you begin to get a clear picture of what’s next for you. Romantically, coupled Aquarians may need a break or a few moments alone to catch their breath. This bodes well for the relationship and allows you to value one another more deeply. Single Aquarians welcome opportunities to meet new individuals; be aware they are “of the moment” relationships and are not likely to stick around. Celebrate your ability to move with the times!

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
An old piece of the puzzle comes back to get revived. You may be asked to revisit an old job or end up working with someone you have worked with in the past. This is a temporary situation, but rewarding and fulfilling in the moment if you allow it. It’s important not to see this as a punishment or that things are going backwards instead of forward. On the contrary, this helps complete the past and will ultimately give you what you want. You may experience the sting of feeling left out this week in a larger-than-life way. Focus on all the good around you to move forward quickly. Even better, another opportunity to soar arises that will help take the bite out of it. Writing, reading and public speaking may be in your future, and you’ll have lots of opportunity this week to hone your skills. A secret beauty tip is revealed that makes all the difference in the world. Romantically, coupled Pisces calls a truce and wants to be kind to each another. Feathers can get ruffled quickly, so keep quips to a minimum. Single Pisces knows how to dominate a conversation and may not be the crowd favorite. Step back and allow others a chance to be in the lime light. You’ll find others will come to appreciate you more. Celebrate your ability to be in the flow!

Aries (March 21 – April 19)
You may be flying high from the joy of new relationships and unfolding opportunities. An exciting idea may throw you for a loop, but you’ll manage it with a smile on your face while getting back up on the horse. A celebratory mood prevails when you are able to pull off a feat of multitude proportions; while it may only be a verbal acknowledgement of something you have had in the works for months, it’s a solid step in the right direction. A handsome man looks to win you over. Remember that mercury is retrograde and if this is your first introduction, it won’t be a long relationship, but one of the moments. Tobacco, cigarettes, cigars, marijuana and other calming remedies may be reintroduced to you. Be wary of reinforcing bad habits. Romantically, coupled Aries feel joined at the hip; however, you may want to make sure you aren’t cramping one another’s style. Frenetic energy works to your advantage for a change. Single Aries are ready to challenge others to be real and to speak up. You’ll enjoy watching the fireworks as you help people get what they want. Celebrate your ability to turn on your power and to own it!

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
A nagging illness may be pulling you down. Now is the time to look outside the box for new remedies to old problems. You’ll find the answer before your doctor if you’re willing to do a little investigation on your own. You feel a growing sense of pride as you’re able to assist a loved one in getting back on their feet. Trust your instincts and know that you’ll be able to give them the support they need. A new and interesting situation reveals itself; while it might not be the time to act, you can do some behind the scenes maneuvering on your own behalf. Next month, a more public unfolding occurs. You may be unusually sensitive to another’s criticism. Take it in stride and resist the temptation to make it an issue; it’s not. Romantically, coupled Taurus may experience confusion around the way they communicate. Patience sees you through this challenge and makes the way for romance. Single Taurus gets pleasure by tending to another’s joy. You’ll have ample opportunities to contribute this week – anything from birthday celebrations to helping someone who’s been hospitalized or ill. Celebrate your good nature!

Gemini (May 21- June 20)
New beginnings and renewed promises give you an opportunity to start over. You may find yourself looking to the past for answers, and will gain the support of those who love you. You may need to convince those in your inner circle that you are earnest and know what you are doing this time around. Travel may become complicated or doesn’t flow as expected. Prepare for the unexpected by packing an extra set of clothing and personal items to keep close at hand. Be careful with expensive jewelry or artifacts; keep in a safe place to avoid theft or damage. Double check tickets and passports, as they may expire in the middle of your trip or need a name changed to match other identification. Be careful not to be reckless with your speech, as things may be taken out of context and cause hard feelings or unnecessary confusion. Romantically, coupled Gemini is excited about a golden opportunity to be together in an entirely new way. Single Gemini may feel somewhat anxious about how to get a special someone’s attention. Be your gregarious self and it will work out perfectly. Celebrate your ability to be fundamentally funny!

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
You have a brilliant mind and can sometimes be too lazy to use it. This week, look for new ways to get back in the swing of things; looking to the past helps you remember what’s worked before. Financially, more money has come in than in previous months, but you still may be feeling a lack. Try contributing an amount to a favorite charity with no strings attached and allow the universe to gift you back. You may be frustrated and sad about a situation that has changed forever. You may be feeling alone or isolated regarding this matter. Focus on things in your life that you do have control over, and you’ll begin to see new momentum and positive feedback. You may be appreciating your physical body or the recent success of a new diet. Romantically, coupled Cancer may be sidetracked easily or forget their partner’s needs temporarily. Resist the temptation to blow up or feel controlled; things are likely to bounce back quickly. Single Cancer can easily get overwhelmed; a good friend gives you some good, common sense advice to pull you through. Pay it forward by listening for a change! Celebrate your ability to trust what others see for you.

    Peggy,

    I read my sign at the beginning of the week – at times there is a clarity, though coming back at the end of the week – hindsight defines the message.

    Thank you
