Recoup, reboot and order in

Go public.  After jamming communications since July 14th, Mental Mercury gets direct and clear about the direction of his arrows beginning late Tuesday night.  Re-routed messages come home like boomerangs, and we see what we meant to say!   

Venus gets a new address Tuesday in the welcoming neighborhood of Cancer.  She’s leaving the cool ivory towers of Gemini to enjoy the pleasures of family, old friends, and comfort food.

The Force of clear thinking is with you.
Here’s your horoscope for the week of August 5, 2012;

Aries ♈ (March 20-April 19)
The Moon enters fiery Aries at 1:59 PM PDT on Sunday.  This sets a pioneering and innovative start to your week.  You’re lovingly in-sync with beauty, art and creativity.  
Tuesday morning dawns with an uncharacteristic softness when Venus relaxes into the warm waters of Cancers home.  A loving nostalgia has you reviewing past loves, and privately enjoying the memories.  Your thinking has been turned inward for over 3 weeks (July 14th - August 8th), as you’ve been re-organizing your thoughts and revamping your plans.  Beginning Tuesday night (10:33 PM PDT), your communications regain clarity. The Moon pumps up the volume on Friday afternoon--talk, talk, talk.  


Taurus (April 20-May 20)
After an intense and impulsive beginning, your week focuses on finances.  Being with family and old friends will fill your heart in a most satisfying way when Venus, the goddess of love, moves into homey Cancer on Tuesday morning for a month long visit. You’ll love watching the days of your lives together.  The slower pace of the Moon in your sign, Taurus, begins Wednesday at 12:28 AM PDT, right after Mental Mercury clears the muddy waters of communications.  You emerge with a very clear idea in mind about your true worth.  Open-hearted compassion sets a loving tone for the rest of your week when visionary Neptune sends unconditional love your way beginning Thursday afternoon.  Hugs and kisses.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Monday gets a little easier by late afternoon when Jovial Jupiter shows up with generous feelings that encompass you in a big hug.Your best date nights for the next 4 weeks will have the domestic flavor of home cooking when Venus, the goddess of love, curls up in a comfy Cancer home Tuesday morning at 6:43 AM PDT.  A sense of vulnerability may put your moods into swings, so allow yourself to take frequent time-outs for nurturing yourself.  The Moon enters your sign, Gemini, Friday at 1:11 PM PDT.  This puts your communications on track and your mind wide open!

Cancer (June 21-July 21)
Challenges to your peace of mind turn you to introspection at the beginning of the week.  But Tuesday morning finds Venus unpacking her bags in your sign, Cancer (6:43 AM PDT) , and making herself at home for 4 weeks of some loving family time.  Ahh.  You’ll find yourself cherishing your loved ones and feasting on pleasant memories of the happiness you’ve shared.  Inner dialogue and “private” thoughts take on clarity of expression after Tuesday night.  Don’t miss the highly inspirational few days, exact Thursday around 3:35 PM PDT, when your heart opens with a new level of compassion.  You have the faith to move mountains.

Leo (July 22-August 22)
At 5:11 PM PDT on Sunday you get a little help communicating your feelings when the Aries Moon sits down with Mercury in Leo for an easy fireside chat.  Beginning Tuesday morning you’re in for 4 weeks of sentimental trips down memory lane.  Get out the family photo album, even the full-on slide show with musical accompaniment, because you’ll find loving pleasure in this light nostalgia.  Also on Tuesday, Messenger Mercury in your sign, Leo, clears his throat and orders his thoughts.  Dimly conscious intentions become very clear and your thinking picks up speed.  

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Grab on to Sunday mornings sweet indulgences, because feelings get bluntly expressed by afternoon.  Domesticity, relationships with women, and good home cooking are where your heart lies for the next 4 weeks as Venus, the goddess of love, unpacks her bag for a visit in Cancers home (Tuesday morning, 6:43 AM PDT).  The relief of having your feelings on more solid ground returns Wednesday with the Moon’s stance in earthy Taurus at 12:28 AM PDT, just 12 hours after communications are restored by the return of clear-headed  thinking.  Let the visionary imagination of a loving Neptune set the tone for the rest of your week.  You find the answers others are still seeking.

Libra (September 23-October 22)
You’ll feel a bit more creative and at ease Monday evening when the Leo Sun has a candlelight dinner ready for the rising Aries Moon, calming her impetuousness.  
Financial and domestic security are at the top of your priorities when Venus enters the sign of the sensitive crab, Cancer, on Tuesday (6:43 AM PDT) for a 4 week stay.  A delicate and affectionate femininity characterizes your relationships with family members and old friends.  Muddled communications find new clarity beginning late Tuesday night, and the stream of ideas that have been circling your head land clearly on paper.  Friday and Saturday are filled with optimism and opportunities to connect.

Scorpio ♏  (October 23-November 21)
Try to linger in the softness of Sunday morning, as the afternoon’s full of hot-headed bluntness.  But you get celestial help Tuesday.  Ordinarily an active Warrior Mars day, Tuesday has an unusual sweetness when the goddess of love leaves airy Gemini, and settles into a homey Cancer sensitivity (6:43 AM PDT).  Deeply sensitive, romantic feelings will bring you comfort and pleasant memories as you relax into the safety of your nest.  Take a time-out Thursday, a turning point, to channel the visions and unconditional love sent by Neptune (exact 3:35 PM).  A romantic Venus fills your empty spaces.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
Sunday afternoon may have feelings clashing and colliding, but your gift of reason can save the day.  Tuesday morning the goddess of love leaves the intellectual skies of Gemini for the comforting waters of Cancer (6:43 AM PDT).  Although Venus in Cancer can have her feelings easily hurt, she won’t necessarily reveal this vulnerable side to you unless there’s a trusting relationship already established.  Careful not to step on toes.  When your buddy, Messenger Mercury in Leo, clears the air Tuesday night, you can at last make your intentions clear to others.  Let loose.

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
Sunday mornings lovely pink cloud evaporates into the need to speak your truth--gloves off-- by afternoon.  A shot of smartness helps you stay reasonable.  The hard-shelled Cancer crab is given additional dignity when Venus enters this sign early Tuesday morning (6:43 AM PDT) for a 4 week home visit.   Just remember that under that hard shell are vulnerable feelings that only come out in the safety of home.  Right after noon on Wednesday, you’re thinking catches up with itself after a 4 week trip through the muddy waters of the unconscious mind.  Your tongue untangles and you clearly see the bottom line.  Lots of chances to connect fill your weekend.

Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
Just for a moment this Sunday morning try imagining your best life, it’s just as easy as thinking of the the worst.  Venus starts a month-long sentimental phase Tuesday morning (6:43 AM PDT) that will carry you through September 6th with a heightened awareness of your family relationships.  Use caution, when you’re feeling bored or lonely, that you don’t retreat into a brooding melancholy.  Instead, take the initiative to create a happy social gathering in your home.

Pisces ♓  (February 18-March 19)
On Sunday the Pisces Moon gets her feelings hurt by an intellectual, only-the-facts please, Venus in Gemini (10:56 AM PDT).   As long as you watch out for the accompanying increase in sensitivity, the next 4 weeks of Venus in Cancer will bring romantic love into your home life.  Beginning Tuesday morning, and for the next month, your home life will have the slightly overindulgent touch of Jewish mothering when it comes to food, but the comfort and affection is well worth it.
