♥ & ☹ Weekly Horoscope: August 22-28, 2016

Astrology Detective delivers the Hearts and Hates for the week!

Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter join forces in get-it-done Virgo throughout the entire week. Virgo is the sign of the caregiver, making it the perfect time to find compassionate solutions for complex problems. Mars also hooks up with Saturn on Wednesday, pushing us to get out of our ruts and take some risks. Action and change can bring with them feelings of fear, anxiety and suspicion, which will become evident at the Lunar T-Square between the Moon, Mars, Neptune, and Saturn on Thursday, and Mars' exact square of Neptune on Friday. Try not to get swept up into unnecessary drama.

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

♥ Coming togetherThe coming together of Mercury, Jupiter, and Venus this week will facilitate consensus-building and cooperation.

☹ Pulling apartForging new paths can cause fear and anxiety from the status quo; you have to fight for your rights.
