Saturday, August 24, finds an interesting conjunction between Venus and Mars in Virgo. This aspect in our horoscope can encourage us to make changes in our lives. The combination of Venus and Mars relates to the actions we take to fulfil our desires.
Marina Stoichkova, an astrologer from MarStars Astrology, believes this is also a dynamic aspect relating to relationships and also finances.
She said: “Venus concerns not only love and emotions, but also resources and money and especially when Venus is in Virgo like today, the focus can also be on practical matters.
“This is consequently a great time to make major financial decisions.”
Another aspect occurring today is a Quincunx between Mercury and Pluto.
This is a cosmic combination allowing us to improve our focus.
The MarStars Astrology expert said: “At first this aspect can be a little bit challenging.
“You may initially be a little suspicious of someone or something.
“It might be a difficult to trust others or you may experience an obsession about certain ideas.
“Or you may be constantly repeating unconstructive thoughts in your mind.”
However, once we pass through this period, the aspect will eventually help you concentrate and analyse your thoughts.
It could potentially help reveal important information as well as learning something new.
Learning about a range of spiritual and occult practices may also benefit today.
Ms Stoichkova thinks today is also a positive time for taking significant financial decisions.
She said: “Pluto is the other planet relating to finances. Venus is more related to personal money issues.
“Pluto concerns big money, from investments to resources.
“So why not – even though it is Saturday – focus on your finances.”
The Moon remains in Gemini on Saturday, so expect lots of thinking, good communication and travelling.
