It’s a beautiful day to do something new and true, as long as you’re grounded. Divert conflict by establishing a safe and secure home base with bold, firm boundaries. Water your plants.

As contentious Mars perfects its fizzled out opposition to dreamy Neptune Rx and passive Pallas Rx, the goal-focused Virgo Sun continues to square the sensitive Moon’s Nodes and the nurturing Asteroid Goddesses along with a novile to Venus and Vesta sesquisquare soul-mission North Node. Social structure Saturn Rx continues its natural trine to mother nature Ceres. Harmonious trine aspects take the lead in a shifting mental atmosphere.

As people check out or lose steam, disillusionment can leave you miffed, indifferent or cynical. Some may feel sorrow, if too much was expected. Others are still lost in an excited fantasy to avoid disappointment.

A rare few may feel affirmed and vindicated after making the difficult choice to stand their ground, maintain boundaries, and stay focused on liberated, conscious action.

Some people may try to sweep their mistakes or manipulation under the rug or behind a facade of charm, hoping they weren’t noticed.

Either way, the truth becomes clear if you look deep enough into a relationship matter.

Are you sacrificing your principles for a group or a group member?

It’s important to take notes on who can and cannot be trusted for genuine integrity beyond appearances and revise your alliances accordingly.

Just because someone doesn’t cater to your expectations doesn’t mean they are not a worthy alliance. In fact, these are true souls you can trust.


Your Social Network

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.

Breaking Free and Ready to Fly
New Moon in Virgo September 6

The New Moon in Virgo on September 6 kicks the month off with clear skies and grounded action with plenty of gorgeous inspiring ‘Trine’ aspects.

But the bass drop of Earthy Virgo can catch you off guard if you aren’t ready for the precise, hard work required for satisfying achievement.

The Cosmos gave us an opportunity to shift into a new direction or life passion back in May at the Taurus New Moon….

If you stayed committed to this life passion, powerful Uranus aspects this month give you a chance to fully cut loose from lifeless, outdated traditions (as well as human opinions) that keep you stuck so you’re fully READY for all systems go by the end of the month (in spite of Mercury retrograde.)

However, if you’re unclear about your direction or easily distracted, uncertainty and tension can cause some to check out, feel lost, or stay trapped in anxiety or other people’s opinions.

Mid Month, Venus finds herself in her ‘Fall’ in Scorpio while Mars crashes in his ‘Detriment’ in Libra. Watch for manipulation in relationships such as smothering or trying to make someone jealous. The Cosmos gave us plenty of clear seeing in August to know who your true alliances are by now.

Mercury and Mars in aspects to Uranus in the second week want change NOW but mental clarity fades as Mercury slows down for his shadow. Clear thinking may be nowhere to be found by mid month when the Sun opposes Neptune. If you’re grounded – as the Cosmos prepared you – you can avoid irresistible bad choices, especially as it concerns work or relationships.

Outer planets retrograde plus powerful Pluto aspects this month force us to go deep within, seeing things we may not be ready to see, especially as it concerns unhappiness with the way things are or perhaps, bad choices made. Some may stay stuck in escapism at the Pisces Full Moon September 22 to avoid facing ‘the buried stuff.’

The Sun joins Mars in Libra September 22 at the Equinox. If you’ve got a nice balance between social diplomacy and audacious authenticity, you’re on a GOOD TRACK.

The Sun and Mars trine Saturn by the end of the month finally showering us with magnificent energy for solid, feel good achievement – as long as you dealt with ‘your stuff’ earlier in the month and broke out of the prison of other people’s opinions.
