Weekly Horoscope – 29 August to 4 September 2022

A rundown of the main transits for the week is below, or you can jump directly to the horoscopes for all zodiac signs.

We start the week with the lingering effects of last week’s Sun square Mars and Venus’s opposition to Saturn beginning to wane. 

From late afternoon on Tuesday, Mars moves toward its upcoming sextile with retrograde Jupiter. The Mars sextile retrograde Jupiter aspect will be exact mid-morning (6:31 am C.D.T.) on Thursday and start to wane from late night on Friday. 

From early afternoon on Thursday, Mercury moves up toward its upcoming opposition with retrograde Jupiter. The Mercury opposition retrograde Jupiter aspect will be exact mid-evening (8:31 pm C.D.T.) on Friday and start to wane from late morning on Sunday. 

From late night on Sunday, Venus moves into Virgo. Venus is said to be in fall in Virgo and less able to carry out the significations of Venus. 

All times given are for U.S.A. Central Time (C.D.T.)

Horoscopes work best when you read your Ascendant sign instead of your Sun (star) sign.

You may be extremely busy with siblings, communications, and matters with your local area this week. You may find that maintaining your usual level of enthusiasm is a bit harder now. Partners or close friends may have some interesting ideas that quickly grab your attention but may not be very realistic. 


Matters to do with your income, finances and resources may cost you a pretty penny this week. It is easy to think that you have this covered, but it can quickly escalate. Your approach toward your health or bad habits may need some adjustment this week, as you may not be thinking too realistically. 


Your energy levels are buoyed up at this time, and good friends are likely to have you excited about a new adventure this week. You may feel a little conflicted about spending time with groups, friends or organizations versus spending time with your children or on creative or other fun topics. 


You may be working more behind the scenes with topics to do with your career this week. Ideas about how you can better improve your work/life balance are likely a step in the right direction but may not be too practical. 


Hanging out with friends, groups, or other allies might have you considering undertaking higher studies, long-distance travel or broadening your horizons in some fashion. As much as you would like to take on more at this time, you may find that the daily communications, chores and matters to do with your local area are where your focus needs to be at this time. 


You are throwing yourself into your career or matters to do with your public reputation at this time. There may well be others that are willing to help you out with these matters, perhaps financially. Separating personal finances and resources from joint finances and resources may require some negotiations this week. 


You may be undertaking higher education, long-distance travel, or exposing yourself to other beliefs or cultures at this time. A partner or a good friend may be instrumental in having you feel a new enthusiasm for something this week, but you may need to watch that you are not being too unrealistic about the possibilities raised. 


Matters to do with shared finances or resources may be taking up a lot of your time and energy this week. Working behind the scenes is likely, but try not to do too much and burn out. 


Time spent with a partner or close friend at this time may be fun and high energy. However, you are also likely to find that the needs of friends, groups or others require your attention this week. 


Try not to do too much, especially for others this week. It is okay to say “no” sometimes and can stop resentment building. Matters to do with your career and home life may make you feel like you are in a push-pull situation that is difficult to give the time they deserve.


If you have children, you may want to keep an eye on them as they may be a little more accident-prone now. However, this can be an excellent time for creative or other fun activities. As much as you may want to drill down into the details regarding higher learning, philosophy, different beliefs or cultures, you may find that communications in general in your local area are demanding more of your attention. 


There may be a lot going on in your home at this time; this may well be a time when finances seem more available. However, it would be wise not to get too carried away with spending. This week, matters to do with shared finances and resources may require a balancing act.
