Your horoscope for the week starting on August 8, 2022

Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse by Eduard Jakob von Steinle The highlight of the week is a Full Moon, which happens on Thursday, August 11, at 6.36 pm Lakewood Time. It’s not in itself an unusual event, but it’s caught up with Mars, Saturn and Uranus. All of us are going to be on edge, and my warnings for last week continue.

We live in unstable times, and the news is mainly going to be bad. So don’t get excited about Biden talking up the latest job report – things are not getting better, and the world is becoming more violent.

Of course it didn’t help that Nancy Pelosi barged into Taiwan. A question of acting first, thinking later. Typical Aries.

Nearer home, we have news that over 100 Garry oaks are definitely gong to to be cut down on 123rd Street, in Springbrook.

You can feel the apocalypse. And the one thing worse than a godless society is a society which has created its own gods in its own image. A god that has been perverted into a craven image, giving property rights the same status as scripture. Blasphemy upon blasphemy, and Babylon awaits.

What happens to live oaks, the crucified Earth, happens to you next.

Luke 23:29-31 tells us

29 For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck.

30 Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us.

31 For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?

As for next week, only God knows the future, but here are my forecasts for the 12 signs:

Aries (Mar 20 – Apr 19) There’s something you like doing, that’s almost become a matter of habit.  However is it really a good idea?  There is an element of risk, albeit very small, and one day the odds could turn against you.  Something, or someone, who seems cute and cuddly, could turn out to have a nasty streak.  In your love life try to plan ahead, and make allowances for all possibilities, however unlikely.  Sometimes it’s OK to be selfish – as every Aries knows!

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20) Don’t slack off!  There’s work to be done, the sooner the better!  You might think that you haven’t got what it takes, but once you swing into action you’ll be surprised at what you achieve.  And don’t be afraid to get outside help – your persuasive skills are at the top of the range.  If you’re looking for a new job you’ve got qualities that are much in demand, and if you ask around you’ll find the right slot for yourself.

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20) You’ve got some free time on your hands, and it’s tempting to twiddle your thumbs and watch the clouds go by.  However free time exists for a purpose.  You can fine-tune your act, and make sure that your knowledge-base is second to none.  It might be boring, but by adding to your strengths and covering your weak-spots you’ll be putting yourself on the fast-track to success.  Someone wants to talk about money – don’t change the subject!

Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 21) Is it enough to have natural talent?  Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn’t.  And what you have to do is ask yourself whether you’ve got what it takes, and if necessary you must be ready to do some extra work.  A few hours a day of practice can make all the difference.  Yet this week’s Full Moon raises a few questions. Some of your assumptions are not entirely correct, and the stress-points in society may take their toll. You either look away or join the struggle – and hopefully you’re not part of the problem!

Leo (Jul 22 – Aug 22) It’s time to think very hard about other people.  You need to understand what’s going through their minds, and you must be able to anticipate their next moves.  It’s going to take some work, but once you’re able to anticipate someone’s actions you’ll be in a strong position.  Partners and lovers are demanding, but if you are looking at things from their point of view you’ll probably realize that they’re in the right.

Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 20) Mercury’s movement into your star sign makes you hard to miss.  You’re starting to realize that there are many possibilities, and that with the right moves you can achieve pretty much whatever you want.  And don’t fall into the Virgo trap of underestimating your brainpower. Right now you’re the cleverest kid in the class, and detail plus understanding make for a winning combination.

Libra (Sep 21 – Oct 21) You haven’t got all the energy in the world – there are limits to what you can do, and you need to respect that.  So decide what matters, and leave the rest for later.  Yet under the surface things are changing. This week’s Full Moon is all about your personal sense of direction – the goals you set yourself, which differentiate you from the rest of the herd. You might then find yourself in a position where you have to express your viewpoint, in such a way that you attract criticism. It’s OK, you can’t be friends with everyone.

Scorpio (Oct 22 – Nov 21) You’ve got responsibilities, as well you know, and the sooner you meet them the better.  So this week look around, and ask yourself what needs to be done.  You might prefer to enjoy yourself, but can you really let go if you’re weighed down by a guilty conscience?  Yet once your various responsibilities are out of the way, you’ll be faced with a brand new situation, which could be both exciting and profitable.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 20) You need to distinguish between the sacred and the profane. There are things going on that are utterly trivial, which could take up all your time. Amusing distractions, which on reflection are an insult to your very being. Yet there are other things things going on that are essential, in a way that links with your fundamental purpose. Have some self-respect and everything will be fine.

Capricorn (Dec 21 – Jan 18) The world’s not perfect, as you know very well.  However that doesn’t mean you should give up on things.  Your own little corner is the place to start, and by making things better in your immediate environment you’ll be setting a good example.  OK, in the first instance you might be ignored, but soon enough you’ll get the attention you deserve.  By reaching out to a distant land you could in some strange way connect to your destiny.

Aquarius (Jan 19 – Feb 18) There’s no disgrace in a change of mind.  You haven’t got all the answers, and new information is coming in all the time.  So at regular intervals you need to review the situation, and be ready to revamp your strategy.  Other people might complain, but they haven’t got the whole picture.  If you stick to your guns, and you trust your intuition, your approach will eventually be vindicated.  But try to be sensitive – someone is under enormous pressure, and they need your help and understanding.

Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 19) You just want to get on with it, and you don’t want to worry about the world and its problems.  However it’s unlikely that you’re going to be left alone.  There’ll be trivial demands on your time and energy, which soon build up.  For your part, take a relaxed attitude, and don’t allow yourself to get annoyed.  Nonetheless, the most important things in life can only be discovered on your own, and in this sense solitude can be a blessing.
