Virgo Season and the beginning of Harvest. The days are getting shorter and our instincts turn towards the approach of Fall. Such a magical time of year! The seasons are about to change next month, and this shift can bring dramatic changes in our lives. After the craziness of this year, I hope the changes will move us forward towards personal empowerment. Now is the time to release and purge objects and situations from our lives that we cannot bring into the winter.
This week, Mars moves past it’s square to Saturn, finishing it’s contact with the “Covid Point” of Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter near 24 Capricorn. Mars in Aries gives good forward progress on all passions and drives – especially with regards to retooling our identities to fit the new paradigm. We are all fired up right now, especially where Aries falls in your chart. This is the place where you step forward and say “I AM”, this is important to me, and I will fight for it. All of us have an action plan we’re supposed to be following, and this week we figure it out.
Monday, August 24th: Moon in Scorpio and Mars square Saturn. That means our plans might face constructive criticism, postponement, hard facts and unavoidable limitations. What reality do you need to embrace to achieve your goals? Avoid social complications and focus on healing. Be the snake shedding it’s skin. Scorpio is the sign of letting go of something you’ve outgrown, and welcoming the new you.
Tuesday, August 25th: Moon into Sagittarius. Mercury trine Uranus around 8am Pacific. Listen to any “messages” you receive from the universe. Flashes of insight can arrive suddenly! Great for eye opening writing and communication. Pay attention to developments this week, and what you’re being “called” to do, and put your energies there.
Wednesday, August 26th: Moon in Sagittarius. Moon activates the “I AM” energy with Mars, bringing us some wisdom along with it. It’s a day of motion and looking at the big picture. It’s a lighter mood if you need to express something difficult or challenging to someone.
Thursday, August 27th: Moon in Capricorn; Venus trine Neptune around 2pm Pacific. Absolutely LOVELY aspect that enhances the arts, love, friendship and visions. Be mystical today, but embrace the Capricorn Moon and get to work too. Put effort into creative ventures.
Friday, August 28th: Moon in Capricorn. The great vibes from yesterday continue. If you are a creative person, work on your projects! Time is well spent on disciplines and completing responsibilities. DO it.
Saturday, August 29th: Moon in Aquarius; Mercury trine Jupiter around 6:30am Pacific. Inspirations abound. Feel the optimism in the air today! Aquarius asks us to focus on the future, make plans, and involve our network of friends. Watch out for risky behavior though, since Uranus brings spontaneity, rebellion, and independence. Focus on expressing your unique genius.
Sunday, August 30th: Moon in Aquarius, and Venus opposite Pluto at 6:30am Pacific. Events right now feel like fate. If there’s explosiveness with relationships, try to be kind and respectful of the other person’s feelings. Obsessiveness and lust can take over our thoughts, so make great art instead. Healing and art can come from exploring dark places within us.
