Astrology forecast for Aug. 12-25


By Cortney Litwin/Staff Writer

The week begins with a romantically liberating Venus-Uranus pas de deux on the 13th and 14th, followed by the new moon in dramatic Leo on the 15th. Let your heart rein over your brain. An innovative but explosive configuration occurs on the 17th through 19th when unpredictable Uranus opposes talkative Mercury and irascible Mars. This quirky combo could herald a medical or technology breakthrough as well as snafus concerning mechanical devices. The sun brightens communications when it teams up with Mercury on the 23rd and then enters analytical Virgo on the 22nd. Retrograde Mercury backs into Leo on the 24th, encouraging explorations of past creative ventures and romantic trysts.

If you know your rising sign from your time of birth, read that also.
