CANCER WEEK 4 AUGUST
Cancer – Week 4, 27th August
Sun in Leo until 24th August, then Virgo
You may find that you are quick to anger and quite irritable this week which can lead to disputes and arguments. Whilst it is important to stand up for yourself and make your views known, there generally needs to be a point of compromise to come to agreement, but you are unlikely to be prepared to take that step and dig your heels in even further.
Love and Romance
You may be feeling a little cool towards those ranges even distant or removed and they may be treating you in the same way which only compounds a feeling of isolation. You may feel the need to have some excitement in your sex life and want to go out and find it if it is not readily available to you. Clearly this can have longer term ramifications and it would be wise to consider the potential consequences.
Prosperity & Opportunity
This can be a very positive time, a time when you can accomplish a good deal if you set your mind to it. Anything that you tackle now is likely to be successful so it’s a good time to start new projects. However, you should be cautious not to be overconfident and promise more than you can deliver or take on more than you can possibly deal with.

Gemstone for August – Peridot
The ancient Romans wore peridot rings in battles as it symbolized strength and provided protection against the enemies.
Conversely, the ancient Egyptian priests ground the stone into a powder before mixing it with potent drinks to be used in ceremonies as they believed that drinking this concoction would bring them closer to nature. Peridot is regarded as a powerful detoxifying agent. The stone is also thought to improve blood circulation, enhance metabolism, strengthen the immune system and boost digestion. It also has the ability to eliminate stress and dispel apathy and exhaustion.
In modern times, wearing peridot jewelry can help increase financial solidity and contentment in your life. The stone is widely associated with prosperity, loyalty, love, honesty, faithfulness, and optimism. The notion that it reduces stress and eliminates negative thinking, can help enhance harmony, particularly in marriages and other human relationships. Essentially, experts in gemstone significance suggest that the stone can prevent jealousy and anger in relationships.
Furthermore, peridot can also help improve mental health and boost spiritual wellness. It is associated with the heart chakra, also green, and wearing it close to the heart is said to cleanse it of negative emotions, leaving the wearer feeling light, blissful and ready to love.
