Here's Your Weekly Horoscope For August 15-21

We’re constantly fascinated by what our zodiac sign says about our lives, whether it's which signs are most compatible, the best sex positions for each sign, or how each sign handles conflict in relationships. That's why Bustle has enlisted Mecca Woods, a New York City-based Astrologer of MyLifeCreated.com to tell us all about how astrology is affecting our lives each week. This week's topic: your weekly horoscope for the week of August 15-21.

The big themes this week are innovation, breakthroughs, and radical change. This is because we have a super-powered Full Moon in unconventional Aquarius taking the stage on August 18 bringing a shot of adrenaline and a deep craving for brand spanking new experiences with it. And as if that wasn't enough get up and go for you, leading up to this moment will be an auspicious meeting between the Sun (confidence) in daring Leo and Uranus (independence) in headstrong Aries on August 16. Together, these two powerhouses will help to set the stage for the fireworks mid-week, providing us with the chutzpah to not only want something different but to actually go after it as well.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Who's on Team Aries? This week you're asked to take stock of whether or not the people behind you are in alignment with you future. If the answer is no, it may be time to let go and search for more like-minded souls.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Your career and home life are buzzing this week and as a result, you could land a job that provides you the opportunity to relocate or to find something that offers you more autonomy. Don't look back!

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

You could find your name in print this week which could manifest as a blog launch, a publishing venture, or another form of media. Get ready to breakthrough (or break down walls) to a whole new audience.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Your finances take the focus this week and your shot at financial independence could come by way of taking your career in a different direction or striking out on your own. Think: freedom through security.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

You may finally have the revelation you need to take a significant partnership to the next level or end one completely. Whichever you choose to do, it will completely renew your outlook on life.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

You may finally get the kick in the pants needed to break free of a dead-end job or to find better ways to look after your body. Stability doesn't have to mean soul-sucking, lifeless, or a lack of change.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)

Your love life hits fever pitch this week. As a result, you could receive the confirmation you need to dive all the way in or pull all the way out. Either way, you should find yourself feeling liberated.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Your home and private life are lit up this week which could bring news of a big move, an expansion of the family, or an emotional breakthrough. Consider this a necessary parting of ways between you and the past.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

If you've been finding yourself overworked and underpaid, this week could give you the push you need to raise the bar and set a new standard. In short: believe in your worth, then shoot for the moon.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

You're a realist at heart, but is that realism really doubling as a deep-seated fear that you will never have what you want? This week look to re-frame your thoughts and beliefs towards having what your heart desires.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

This week it's all about you as you could find yourself in the spotlight receiving recognition for your amazing-ness or at the very least, breaking free of something or someone that's been weighing you down.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

With the most sensitive and private side of you being stirred up this week, consider this a cosmic nudge to clean out your psychic cache. Taking a new approach to self-care and healing is your directive.
