♥ & ☹ Weekly Horoscope: August 15-21, 2016

Astrology Detective delivers the Hearts and Hates for the week!

This is a pretty low-key week, astrologically speaking. On Tuesday, the Sun in Leo trines up-for-anything Uranus; it's summer, so do something bold and daring to enjoy the final weeks of the season. For those who are stuck behind a desk, working hard can enhance your reputation and status with bosses, so offer to pick up the slack for colleagues on vacation. At the Full Moon on Thursday, it may be time to turn your back on the group though, and put yourself first.

Here is a general overview of this week's energy, valid for all. Hearts and Hates for your sign follow below!

♥ Play hard, work harder
Career building and party planning receive equal astro attention mid-week, allowing for fun and accomplishment.

☹ Au revoir, mes amis
You may need to bid adieu to those safe-and-secure aspects of groupthink that are holding you back from your true destiny on Thursday.
