AstroCompass: Astrology for the week of 19 August 2019

Three planets changing signs this week, which signals a shift in energy around the globe. These planets are Mars, Venus, and the Sun; all of which will move into Virgo. Having multiple planets in Virgo brings order, precision and care to a chaotic world. Expect the week to bring the ability to focus on tasks that previously seemed elusive. The only challenge will be a mild obsessive compulsive tendency that will make group collaboration difficult. However, those who work independently will in their element.

On the 21st Mercury will make a harmonious trine to Jupiter making communication flow easily. Also, the expansive energy of Jupiter with Mercury brings “big picture” thinking that boosts confidence. Many will need to be cautious not to take on more than they can reasonably handle midweek. Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius will be the most susceptible to thoughts of grandiosity.

Overall, the world can expect a fun filled weekend full of social activities, sexual urges, and creative play. Saturday would be a great time to propose marriage, initiate a romantic relationship, and make new friends.
