  • Sun in Virgo 2° 54′
  • Waning Full Moon in Aries
  • VOC Moon: 9:14pm Aug 26 – 4:26am Aug 27 UTC
  • Moon opposite Venus, sextile Saturn Rx
  • Prominent Mode: Mutable
  • Prominent Element: Air, Very Little Fire and Water
  • Prominent Aspect: Opposition
  • Retrogrades: Jupiter Rx, Saturn Rx, Uranus Rx, Neptune Rx, Pluto Rx, Chiron Rx, Pallas Rx

It’s a good day to look for alliances that are sincere and supportive. Notice which relationships need more intimacy or more boundaries. Social conflict is likely based on misinformation or missing facts.

As the Full Moon continues to wane, now in ambitious Aries, she makes a quincunx to Aries’ ruler, physical health-focused Mars and an opposition to Venus in duality-balanced Libra as well as a naturally achieving sextile to Saturn Rx in Aquarius. Venus sesquisquares expanding Jupiter Rx in Aquarius while talkative Mercury sesquisquares Saturn. There’s residue from easily distracted Mercury opposite Neptune Rx but tomorrow’s Mercury trine Pluto Rx wants to know how you REALLY FEEL. Venus opposite Chiron Rx is extra sensitive especially in issues of mental health. Conflicting oppositions continue to rule the mutable sky.

To move past a challenge, change may be needed in a work routine so that work is more fulfilling on an emotional level. Or, slow down to enjoy your work and relationships….

Or, you might want to make changes in relationships to feel more emotionally safe or to achieve your health goals.

You might look for people who are open and vulnerable, which allows you to be the same, while maintaining strict boundaries with those who tend to be insincere, manipulative, or demanding….

Look for genuine relationship connections to form a foundation of support and inspiration in order to make difficult lifestyle changes or draw on personal strength you didn’t know you have.

Notice who does or who does not support your best life.

Changes in the Cosmos can trigger fear unless you’re leveling up in your own life, making changes that allow you to achieve higher standards in spite of risks or opposition.

You can rely on higher standards to pull through a challenge or level up in career, health, or relationships.


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.
