AS the new week has started, it is time to read your weekly career horoscope.
Here is what you can expect this week (August 20 – 26).
What is my career horoscope?
Aries, in the run-up to a special weekend you welcome the sun in your wellbeing sector, while in-control planet Mercury pushes back.
So you can look again at health switches or glitches that may have knocked you off course, and find ways to fix them.
At work, too, you are firmly your own boss, planning your own time.
Leo, there’s new energy and luck in your cash chart as the sun moves in – but you also have the cautionary presence of Mercury moving back.
This is a week for bold buying and selling choices – but only once you’ve ticked all the research boxes.
This process can fly through once you start.
Gemini, the sun lights the deepest foundations of your chart to show which promises you need to stick to, which can be let go.
Loyalty must be two-way to work, and deep down you sense this.
There’s a lot of temptation flowing this week, when you least expect it – but you have inner strength that just grows even more rock-solid when tested.
Cancer, you can sense Mercury’s new retrograde in your communication style – this week you may be less discreet than usual.
But revealing feelings you usually hide can be a positive move, and at work and at home, you know an honesty session is overdue.
Libra, those vulnerable parts of yourself you keep safely hidden, are your secret strength this week.
You have the pure insight of the moon to unlock other people’s feelings, but best of all you really understand yourself.
And offer as many chances as you need to make a crucial inner change.
Scorpio, with the sun in your sociability zone you wow individuals and audiences everywhere you go this week – and a role linked to bridging political, or personal, gaps can come closer.
The luckiest numbers link to a favourite rhyme from your childhood.
Virgo, your time in the sun begins with a bang and only gets better – make sure you’re ready for exciting challenges this week.
At work, however hard you try to wriggle out, you know a big new role is a perfect fit.
Capricorn, adventure and experience top your chart’s weekly agenda -helping you adapt, and grow.
So do ditch any idea that you can only succeed exactly as you are.
The new you can be a revelation, as much to yourself as everyone else.
Aquarius, maybe you’ve talked about something, or someone, for ages – but this week your words are finally heard.
Things can move fast after this, so be ready to move with them.
Your soppy side is near the surface, and specific music or images can bring it out.
Pisces, deals of all kinds are in your planet spotlight – a long-running negotiation can finally finish this week. Plus you can refresh several recent lines of connection.
When you are clear what is fairest, rather than easiest, agreement gets easier.
Jupiter’s golden luck surrounds March birthdays and special celebrations planned for “3” dates.
What traits does my horoscope have?
Famously passionate, fiery and argumentative, Aries is symbolised by the ram.
They are natural-born leaders and inspire with their bold, ambitious and strong-minded nature.
Aries love to be number one, are always on top of their competition, and never miss out on a challenge.
They also have traits such as determination, high energy and a way of acting with conviction.
Known for their stubborn nature, it’s only fitting those falling under the Taurus sign are represented by a bull glyph.
Grounded in hard work, slow and steady perseverance and security, the bull is the persistent provider of the zodiac.
They enjoy indulgences, luxuries and physical pleasures, and feel most content when pampered.
Steadfast and loyal, Taureans make for a steady, harmonious relationship.
Passionate, playful and intellectually curious, Gemini are always going a hundred miles per hour, juggling hobbies, work, friendships and romantic pursuits.
They can be intelligent, adaptable and charming while also possessing nervous and indecisive traits.
Their duality and adaptability can sometimes be misrepresented as two-faced, but in reality, they are loyal friends who always seek to improve their relationships.
People born as Cancer are highly intuitive, emotional and sensitive, with rich inner lives and gentle, empathetic nature.
Cancerians don’t let go of things easily once they have grabbed on to something like ideas, goals and relationships.
They are are guarded by a hard shell, which they need time and comfort to come out of.
They are homebodies and really family-oriented and make for great chefs and caregivers.
The celebrity of the zodiac, Leos are bold, fierce and always likes to be the centre of attention.
Passionate, enthusiastic and ambitious, it’s no wonder Leos are represented by a lion.
Those with a Leo star sign enjoy inspiring friendships and drama-fuelled romances and run away as soon as they get bored.
Ruled by the sun, Leos are full of life and vitality, and never stop pursuing their many passions.
A Virgo star sign is associated with organisation, good communication and high intelligence.
Virgos are logical, pragmatic and systematic, and work extremely hard to achieve their goals.
When astrologists read shapes in the stars centuries ago, they decided the glyph for Virgo represented an ‘unspoiled’ virginal woman.
Some say this is shown as an ‘M’ shape, for ‘maiden,’ while others interpret the crossed loop to represent the closed legs of a chaste virgin.
Because of their perfectionist nature, Virgos can come across as critical and judgmental, but they are the ones who feel this the most – they can be their own worst critics.
