Your weekly horoscope is here—and it's time to break the rules...

This week, it’s time to let your freaky flag fly! On Tuesday, the Sun will illuminate the planet Uranus, the archetype of the change-maker and the maverick. A need to break the rules will be running through our veins, and we must listen to it, so it doesn’t take us by surprise later on. This is the planet that seeks to liberate us, helping us see paths and options that normally seem crazy or impossible, under a new light. As you move through your week, break your routine and find activities that are different and exciting.  

Following up on a similar theme, on Wednesday, we experience a new beginning under the new moon in Leo. What’s different about this new moon is that it asks us to redo, rethink, and reconsider our strategies. This is not easy to do, as most of us are stuck in the same processes, thinking there are only a few ways to act. But those who can abandon old ways of thinking can truly harness this energy. The areas of relationships, money, and creativity are where we need to direct this energy. 

Over the weekend, certain information gets illuminated, helping us figure out the piece of an important puzzle. Resting and idle time facilitate this information arriving, so if you’re looking for some answers, make room for them to arrive.

An interesting individual could come into your orbit this week, Cancer. Or perhaps, maybe even get in touch with you after an idle period within your friendship. It’s very possible that this person is arriving or coming back to offer you a different way of seeing things. You’re also being offered a new beginning regarding your budget, so don’t be afraid of crunching the numbers, as doing so could show you where the adjustments need to be made.

Break your work routine, Leo! With the planet of genius asking you to seek newness in this area of your life, you set yourself up for success when you try different tools and processes, allowing the universe to surprise you! Following on this theme, the new moon is the perfect time to begin thinking about what has been transpiring for you in the past few weeks and the changes you would like to incorporate in your life around September 3, once Venus goes direct in your sign.

Virgo weekly horoscope

Grab your notebook, Virgo—because some shocking information is set to arrive at the beginning of the week. Even if it doesn’t totally include you, what you receive could absolutely blow your mind and help you see certain situations from a completely new perspective! This could instigate some deep soul-searching about an important situation, most likely concerning a special person in your life. But don’t act now, the right time comes either next week or after September 3.

If you’re in a serious relationship, Libra, a conversation you have with your partner could bring tension between you. Yes, it might be hard to approach these subjects—but trust us when say that it’s best to deal with them head-on! Otherwise, they will show their face at a later time, in the fall, actually. If you’re single and looking, a friend could introduce you to someone special. However, because your planet (Venus) is currently retrograde, it’s best to move slowly.

Scorpio weekly horoscope

Say it like it is, Scorpio! If you’re bored with the classic dating (or sexual) routine and are ready for some new energy to come in, let your partner in on your fantasies. After all, life’s too short to not have fun! As the week progresses, a development occurs in your career or with a project that makes you take a different direction. Don’t avoid change, as this is exactly what this month’s new moon is asking you to embrace in this area of your life.

Good thing you are flexible, Sagittarius, as this week’s astrology could throw some curveballs your way! As surprises arrive, prepare for your daily routines to change. This will be specifically felt with processes at work, so give yourself extra time between meetings and deadlines. As you deal with these changes and adjustments, the need to escape, the travel bug, might also pay you a visit. The weekend is ideal to book flights and make plans for a late-summer getaway!

Whether single or attached, your love life looks very interesting this week, Capricorn! If you’re single and looking, Uranus invites you to open your mind and perhaps date someone who would not normally be your type. If you’re already taken, the new moon invites you to get kinky in the bedroom by trying things you and your partner have never explored before. By being open to new experiences, you could reach new levels of intimacy, so why not?!

Aquarius weekly horoscope

Seek balance in your life, Aquarius. Electric Uranus is currently activating your home sector, most likely bringing an energy of restlessness and change. If finding comfort at home is difficult this week, booking a massage or visiting gardens could be the grounding antidotes you might need now. When it comes to relationships, the new moon in Leo opens the door so you can see a close connection in a new light. There is no rush to act now—the time will come once September arrives!

Pisces weekly horoscope

Spill the beans, Pisces! If you’ve been holding onto something, this week’s astrology could drive you to finally express how you think and feel. This influence will be particularly strong in work relationships, so it’s important to speak clearly and from the heart. By being honest about your situation, a new process could be set in place, bringing you the opportunity to experiment more within your field. For a creative like you, this is music to your ears!
