Your Horoscope For This Week — Aug 23 2015

Illustrated by Lynnie Zulu.
Bring back the love, stargazers! This week, expressive Mercury moves into Libra — the heavenly peacekeeper and zodiac’s romantic — and bunks there until November 1. Normally, the messenger planet speeds through a sign in three short weeks. But due to an upcoming retrograde (we know, we know) from September 17 to October 9, Mercury is on an extended tour in Libraland. Relax, you have plenty of time to prepare for that AND to enjoy the cooperative vibes that Mercury in Libra can bring. Start discussing formal collaborations now, whether you’re looking for a bedroom or a boardroom buddy. If there are contracts involved, get ‘em signed before September 17 or try to wait until mid-October to make it all official.

On Saturday, the full moon in poetic Pisces can turn us all into bliss bunnies. We’ll rock the rose-colored glasses, spit rhymes like Rumi, and generally just want to escape the pressures of the world. Squeeze in one last summer festival, epic DJ set, or beach trip. But don’t lose sight of boundaries and limits or the post-party crash could be painful. People’s true motives could be illuminated under this full moon, busting through illusion (or delusion). Here’s hoping they’re on the side of good!
