It’s a great day to write down your practical plan, as long as you’re inspired, confident, and already working. If not, consider restructuring. Alleviate tension by removing unnecessary social obligations.

The Sun in Leo continues to oppose Saturn Rx in Aquarius, putting a dent in arrogant self-views or big talk with no action. The waning last quarter Moon joins Ceres, Lilith, and the North Node in Gemini and makes an audacious square to Jupiter Rx and Mars before a trine to Saturn. Meanwhile, Juno stations direct providing clear direction in relationships.

It’s all about bold self-confidence and self-respect these days. You either have it or you don’t. It can’t be feigned or manufactured.

Reality checks reveal whether your inspiration is true or false. If you’ve been humbly hard at work with unwavering tenacity, that’s a good sign. You may be fired up with detailed, fast-acting yet steady, practical steps to implement at the New Moon on Sunday.

Pretentious ego dreams, on the other hand, just won’t cut it. In fact, the ego may get a few base chops so you can, ultimately, enjoy your own tangible achievements.

A breakdown can be liberating. It can also alleviate fears due to delusional or overconfident choices.

Relationships: Juno stationing direct at the South Node in Sagittarius reveals the truth about other people. It’s a rare opportunity to see clearly which relationships stack up with your own genuine inspirations. It would be wise to remove even well-intentioned sources of distractions, as they have been creating unnecessary obligations or roadblocks.


Disruptions and Liberation

August 2 – August 8, 2021

  • Monday, August 2: Sun opposite Saturn Rx, Moon in Gemini
  • Tuesday, August 3: Venus trine Uranus, Mercury square Uranus, Mercury trine Chiron Rx
  • Wednesday, August 4: Sun trine Chiron Rx, Moon in Cancer
  • Thursday, August 5:
  • Friday, August 6: Sun square Uranus
  • Saturday, August 7: Moon in Leo
  • Sunday, August 8: New Moon in Leo

Everyone’s squaring Uranus this week and it may be a week of rebellions and disruptions.

Pressure may finally reach breaking point.

Perhaps you receive some unexpected news that throws you a little off balance. But you sort of knew this information already. It can no longer be ignored now.

Decisions up until last week determine your next 20 year cycle (roughly) but the rest of the year focuses on shifting you into those decisions which means…

Disruptions may occur in relationships this week – especially your relationship with society or groups of the past.

Some may feel unsettled or anxious, depending on how easily you adapt to the new and different.

The overall objective this week is liberation from expectations – whether expectations from self or authority figures such as parents or people in the spotlight who set the standards for everyone else.

As far as relationships are concerned, vulnerable, humble communication can be beneficial. Power struggles can create unnecessary drama.

This week’s waning Cancer Moon opposes Pluto before Sunday’s New Moon in Leo which opposes Saturn and also squares Uranus. The Moon is having a rough week and may want to sleep from exhaustion after all the freedom fighting.


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.
