The Sun moved into Virgo on Sunday, heralding the beginning of harvest season! We also had a Full Moon at the tail end of Aquarius. Something in your life is coming to a close, and something is starting – and it’s making you stretch out of your comfort zone. The transition from Leo to Virgo is profound. With the Sun in Leo, we reveled in our true identity, and practiced new ways of expressing it to the world; now with Virgo we get to work.
Mars in Virgo had a friendly trine to Uranus in Taurus on Sunday around midnight, and will continue all week. What are the ways you can liberate your drive, so you can manifest your Will on the world? Mars wants us to TAKE ACTION to find freedom, and defend our future (Uranus). Be open to pathways showing up that are outside of the norm.
Monday, August 23rd: Moon in Pisces opposes Mars and Mercury in Virgo today, emotionally integrating events of last week. We’re still deep in the gravity of yesterday’s Full Moon in Aquarius/Pisces, and we might see more unfolding developments. Venus trine Saturn is exact in the pre-dawn hours, helping us achieve discipline in our artistic ambitions. Set necessary limits and get to work. The issue of commitment may come up in relationships.
Tuesday, August 24th: Moon in Pisces is void until entering Aries at noon Pacific time. Moon in Aries enhances the mood of “Mars Tuesday”, but Mars itself is SO unhappy over in Virgo. Not a great day for Mars magick. We’re going to have to wait a couple of months for him to enter Scorpio. Also today, Mercury in Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces, bringing up confusion in communications. Watch the misinformation expand it’s reach today, but don’t engage; focus on art instead.
Wednesday, August 25th: Moon in Aries opposes Venus in Libra, which can impact relationships and bring up some scuffles. Watch your temper. With Moon in Aries, keep calm while driving, or dealing with insecure, headstrong people. There’s a feeling of rebirth today, so be in tune with what you’re birthing in your life. Mercury is SO HAPPY in Virgo right now, so today is fabulous for Air Magick of any kind.
Thursday, August 26th: Moon in Aries goes void-of-course at 2:14pm Pacific for several hours – entering Taurus at 9:27pm. Look out. Don’t take any risks, and give up reasoning with stubborn people. Hard to get concessions from anyone today. In the morning, Mercury in Virgo trines Pluto in Capricorn, which makes us want deep, meaningful communications. Wait until tomorrow. Or even next week.
Friday, August 27th: Moon in Taurus (EXALTED) with Venus in Libra (in RULERSHIP)? Yep, this is a FANTASTIC day for Venus Magick. Anyone can burn a green candle to attract money, pink for friends and red for passionate love. Get some fresh flowers in your house and wear nice clothes. Moon squaring Saturn in the afternoon means we can deal with reality and wrap up work by dinnertime. In the evening, merge with the sensual side of Taurus, and indulge yourself in romance, food, or nature.
Saturday, August 28th: Moon in Taurus conjuncts Uranus and trines Mars in Virgo. The lovely, romantic vibe continues, but this time, expect the unexpected. Projects might need adjustment. Also, Venus is inconjunct with Uranus, which brings the desire for independence and freedom. Let yourself have the time or space you need today, in order to reconnect with who you are and what you want.
Sunday, August 29th: Moon goes into Gemini at 9:42am, and later squares Jupiter and trines Mercury. This enhances the lightning-fast-communication vibe of the Gemini Moon. We want to socialize and talk to everyone. THEN Mercury enters Libra at 10:10pm, bringing a need for harmony and balance to our relationships.
