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 22-28.
Hey, hey! The Sun leaves the wildfires of Leo for the more grounded and sensible shores of Virgo, kicking off both the first day of the week and Virgo season. With the Sun joining a cluster of planets already in Virgo, which includes Mercury (communication), Venus (love/money), and Jupiter (opportunity/growth), we should feel the shift of energy go from party time to focus time almost immediately. For those of you who may be sad to see Leo season leave, try not to take it too hard as we'll need the pragmatism of Virgo to help us get our proverbial sh*t together before the topsy-turvy eclipses of September roll in. This week especially favors activities or initiatives around self-improvement, learning a new skill, communications, tending to details (or things we've been putting off), and making sure everything is in good working order.
Read below to find out what this week's stars means for your sign.
And remember to tune into Bustle's weekly horoscopes video live on Facebook each Monday at 4 p.m. EST for a rundown of your weekly horoscope.

You could find a sense of deeper security in areas of money and love. If debt has been an issue for you, work with a financial advisor to pay it off. You could also begin seeing a therapist to help you heal an old wound.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Strategic partnership is the name of the game for you this week in both business and in love. Look to those that can help you to better tap into a new audience, clientele, or the soft spot in your heart.
