It’s a good day to accept the facts of a matter. It might not be easy to face a hard truth but it can awaken your honest thoughts and feelings which are needed to make the right choices.

As the Virgo Sun of perfectionism perfects a roadblocking square to the emotional Moon’s nodes as well as Lilith and Ceres… the Moon transitions into overthinking Gemini, as clear-seeing Mercury sesquisquares unconventional Uranus Rx. Even before Mercury shifts into Libra, intellectual Air has already crowded out grounding Earth, inspiring Fire, and emotional Water.

Reality may be entirely occurring in the head at this point. On one hand, mental clarity allows you to see clearly. But too much thinking can create an illusion that just isn’t there.

Watch for projecting assumptions onto other people rather than observing people as they really are.

It might be best to leave relationships alone today and instead focus on what YOU really think and how you really feel in order to resolve an ongoing personal dilemma.

You can trust your own honest thoughts and feelings to guide your way.

To mitigate potential anxiety, it might be necessary to keep the intellect busy with learning or by vocalizing your own ideas. Holding back or denigrating your own logic or intelligence can lead to intense sensations of trapped energy in the body and mind.

Expressing your authentic self gives you vitality; repressing yourself can create inner pressure or anxiety.

Consider looking for a safe outlet to express your authentic self as well as people who accept you as you are.

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.
