It’ a good day to stay committed to higher values. To get back on track, become aware of misleading information or delusions that led you off track. You don’t have to compromise your true principles.

As contentious Mars moves in on its opposition to gullible Neptune Rx and compromising Pallas Rx, the grounding Virgo Sun continues its square to the Nodes both of which form a shifting T-square with relationship Juno and mother-nurturing Ceres. Neptune and Mercury become indecisive as a Waning Moon squares both after a square to Mars and trine to Jupiter Rx along with an extremely slow-moving all night void-of-course. Adding to the sludge is a Sun quincunx hard-working Saturn Rx while an enlightening Hammer of Thor pounds inescapable disillusionment in a highly mental atmosphere of Air and mutable chaos.

Heavy constrictions amidst changing parameters can feel both infuriating and despairing, as life begins to deflate or slow down into the practical work required.

Deflation may especially be the case if you’re currently becoming disillusioned with manipulative information you bought into.

Some may see accurately how they were manipulated or misled, but it can be easy to respond inaccurately.

The pressure to compromise may be relentless. Most people will get stuck in indecision, escapism, or give in to expectations to keep others “happy,” but will you?

It might take some serious guts to stay true to your higher principles but you might consider this as a test of your values. Are they worth it?

If your objectives are worthy, you might want to consider where you may be compromising what is important to you. It might not be easy, but if you can stick to what you KNOW is right, obstacles begin to clear.

Sacrificing your true self is the very thing that keeps you stuck.

August 30 – September 5, 2021

  • Monday, August 30: Mercury in Libra, Last Quarter Moon in Gemini
  • Tuesday, August 31: No Major Aspects
  • Wednesday, September 1: Moon in Cancer
  • Thursday, September 2: Mars opposite Neptune Rx
  • Friday, September 3: Moon in Leo
  • Saturday, September 4: Mercury trine Saturn Rx
  • Sunday, September 5: Venus square Pluto Rx, Moon in Virgo

It’s a relatively quiet week, perfect for getting clear about long range plans, daily routine habits, and supportive alliances.

As the Moon wanes into the dark phase before next week’s New Moon in Virgo, life quiets down. Mercury in Libra is more interested in surface conversation about the weather.

There may be a lack of excitement in conversations. Clearly stating your ideas allows others to get on board, if that’s important to you.

On Thursday, Mars opposes Neptune Rx which may fizzle into a lack of motivation. There may relentless desires to socialize just to feel something. It’s easier to be assertive and put yourself ‘out there.’ However…

Watch for oversacrificing your values in order avoid offending people or to “keep the peace.” Conflict may result later.

By Saturday, it’s clear that practical work needs to be done to advance your career when Mercury trines Saturn Rx. Authentic alliances are also needed to stay inspired.

On Sunday, Venus squares Pluto Rx. Intense pressure in social relationships can result tension, jealousy, or manipulative strategies to control people which eventually backfire.

To alleviate angst, consider releasing any pressure to prove yourself; look for people who respect the real you. Relax and carry on.


August 2021

Clarity and Calm


The month of July may end with unresolved issues or mental unrest. However, August provides various opportunities to become mentally calm and clear.

The key to this month is to become aware of what you feed your mind and how it affects your quality of life. False information or media programming can keep you trapped in unnecessary confusion, stress, anxieties, or other forms of suffering.

To keep your mind clear, it’s imperative to be extremely selective with information or media sources you’re exposed to. Don’t be afraid to turn off the TV, leave a social media platform, or get fed up with the political, religious, or Hollywood agenda used to control your mind, and your life.

A regular meditation practice may help some. Or, you might keep your intellect busy with research that makes your life better. Clearing out distractions that don’t align with your personal objectives can also support mental clarity and relaxation. Take time to care for your mind.

Those who are off track may experience an actual crisis or emergency this month; however, a clear mind can allow you to sail right through it.

After removing information sources and media entertainment that don’t serve your personal objectives and your well-being… now you can relax. Also, your natural creative inspiration and intellectual brilliance can flow through your actions, allowing you to achieve your best potential.

The whole month provides different opportunities to break free from mental tyranny so you can ENJOY your life and work, rather than get lost in social indoctrination or misled beliefs that make you suffer.
