  • Sun in Virgo 4° 38′
  • Waning Gibbous Moon in Taurus
  • VOC Moon: 9:14pm Aug 26 – 4:26am Aug 27 UTC
  • Moon trine Sun, square Saturn Rx, conjunct Uranus Rx
  • Prominent Mode: Mutable
  • Prominent Element: Air, Earth, Very Little Fire and Water
  • Prominent Aspect: Trine, Octile
  • Retrogrades: Jupiter Rx, Saturn Rx, Uranus Rx, Neptune Rx, Pluto Rx, Chiron Rx, Pallas Rx

It’s a good day to listen to frustration and revise alliances. Getting creative with tasks of the home, food, or body can be rewarding even if emotions or inspired motivation are lacking. Enjoy simple pleasures.

As the emotional excitement of the Full Moon wanes into Taurus from Aries, grounding Earth energy catches up to intellectual Air while inspiring Fire and emotional Water are all but null. The Taurus Moon makes a task-completing trine to the Virgo Sun but also triggers structural collapse of the Saturn Uranus square. Cerebral Mercury in Virgo makes an irritating quincunx to the collective beliefs of Jupiter Rx in Aquarius as the work-focused Sun squares intuitive Lilith and artistic Neptune conjuncts home-focused Pallas.

Heightened mental activity may fizz into a lack of inspiration, giving some people a sense of apathy, boredom, or nihilism.

Some may resort to overindulging in instant gratification just to feel something, but it can’t satisfy a lack of motivation – or potential anxiety if survival needs go ignored….

Brushing your teeth or washing the dishes or the laundry may not feel sexy but it can provide familiar comfort and security if done with mindful awareness.

Self-development techniques may prove faulty or inadequate to keep you motivated. Consider replacing the hype of artificial inspiration with simple mindfulness and revise your social connections accordingly.

Simply enjoying life – without reason or permission – can calm the mind and allow true enrichment into your life.


Progress and Productivity

August 23 – August 29, 2021

  • Monday, August 23: Venus trine Saturn Rx
  • Tuesday, August 24: VOC Moon, Moon in Aries, Mercury opposite Neptune Rx
  • Wednesday, August 25: Mercury opposite Neptune Rx
  • Thursday, August 26: Mercury trine Pluto Rx, Venus opposite Chiron Rx
  • Friday, August 27: Moon in Taurus
  • Saturday, August 28: No Major Aspects
  • Sunday, August 29: Sun square Nodes, Moon in Gemini, Mercury in Libra

It’s an exhilarating week with a high potential for productivity, as long as you don’t get caught up in conflict fueled by false information.

After a clarifying Full Moon in Aquarius, it’s time to put your inspired ideas to work. Virgo season is now upon us as Venus trines hard-working Saturn Rx early in the week, forming an inspiring intellectual Grand Air Trine along with the North Node, Ceres, and Lilith.

Later in the week, relationshipfocused Venus opposes health-conscious Chiron Rx after clear-thinking Mercury opposes fuzzy Neptune Rx and Pallas Rx. Make sure you get your FACTS STRAIGHT to avoid verbal conflict. Watch for distorted perspectives.

Also, check your relationships and alliances. Do they support or undermine your work and health objectives?

Mercury trine Pluto Rx on may inspire you to make foundational shifts in your daily structure, which make your work or health routine more efficient and successful.

To take advantage of the fast-acting potential for achievement, it might be necessary to chop, chop, chop….

Remove non-essentials and all of those energy-zapping distractions – especially sources of information or entertainment that only put you in a tizzy.

Protect your mind and maintain boundaries for true calm and harmony, as well as to achieve your best potential. Stay committed to true alliances but watch for self-doubt which can cause unnecessary communication issues.

Patient, focused hard work in art or research is especially rewarding now.

Hopefully you’re on the right track with the right people because, ready or not, we’re moving forward – at least in our personal lives.


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.
