Uranus (shocking, sudden events) is sitting still over our heads and turning retrograde as we begin this week. It’s the planet of electricity, and we had a huge lightning storm over Northern California this weekend! Uranus will be standing still most of the week, then moving backwards for months. It’s a good time to think about your future, try out new things and express your genius. Don’t be afraid to be different, and to let your wild, rebellious genius loose on the world. We are being awakened to a new level and new life. Uranus sets us free.
A yod (finger of fate) is also happening this week! Watch for more dramatic events. The Sun conjunct Mercury will be sextile (150 degrees) from Jupiter on one side, and Neptune in Pisces on the other. The “Yod” is pointed at 20 Aquarius. Jupiter in Capricorn wants to help you make something real and tangible from your creative expression (Leo), while Neptune is giving you mixed signals and confusion from the collective. The way through it is Aquarius! Become the observer, don’t take it personally and focus on the future. What does the community want or need?
Mars (action) is in an almost perfect square with Saturn (responsibility) and Pluto (catharsis) right now through October. Avoid disputes with others and make peace within yourself.
Monday, August 17th: Moon in Leo. The place where Leo falls in your chart is where you need to stand out! Also where you can be wildly creative. We stand on the cusp of a New Moon in Leo – and today is a great day to get concessions from authority. Mercury conjunct the Sun, so communications are highlighted.
Tuesday, August 18th: New Moon in Leo. Let the child in you come out and play! You may find yourself leading or motivating people. Great day to stand out, shine, and perform. See this New Moon as a beginning and an ending – a way to change both your history and your future. Start new creative things!
Wednesday, August 19th: Moon in Virgo. Our focus turns towards health, habits and being of service to others. Spend the day getting organized, exercising or starting a new, healthy habit. Detailed work is easy now.
Thursday, August 20th: Moon in Virgo. Continue putting things in their place and getting your life in order. Intellectual pursuits and clear communication are strong.
Friday, August 21st: Moon in Libra. Bring your life back into balance. If you feel that one corner of your life is dominating you, take this weekend to focus on other things. Everything will be a team effort for the next few days. Partnerships are highlighted, and it’s a romantic weekend ❤
Saturday, August 22nd: Moon in Libra, Sun enters Virgo. We begin a new cycle of the Sun and enter harvest season! We harvest the bounty from the seeds we have sown this year, we will each be harvesting massive personal and societal transformation.
