It’s a good day to be cautious and aware. Avoid errors by taking time to clear the mind before taking action. Watch for overblown or over-inflated thinking. Be selective in your alliances and information sources.

Mercury in Leo opposes Jupiter Rx aligned with Saturn Rx in Aquarius while the newly waxing Virgo Moon makes a quincunx to Saturn Rx and trines Uranus before it joins Venus in her opposition to Neptune Rx. Meanwhile, Mars squares the Nodes. Powerful Jupiter in a prominent Air sign is in challenging aspects, making it the planet of the day.

You may be all up in your head today, and it’s likely not good. Thoughts may be exaggerated or overly optimistic. People expressing those thoughts can make for confusing information or outright wrong information.

In this atmosphere, it’s possible to focus too much on the wrong topic while neglecting REAL NEEDS. Unnecessary worry can also be a distraction, all of which can lead to logical errors and unwanted events. Consider thinking before you speak or act, so you don’t miss the obvious.

It would be wise to be cautious of what you feed the mind, unless you want to find yourself in a mental jumble. Look for trustworthy people and trusted information sources.

As long as you’re grounded with clear objectives, new creative solutions may show up which make life easier or more efficient.

To experience a calm, clear mind, you can declutter it just like you would clean out a home.

You can declutter the mind by removing your attention from people, media, and information sources that have not proven their worth. Invest instead in those who have consistently proven their integrity or their genuine devotion. (They aren’t just using you for likes, profit, or bragging rights.)


Relationship Turbulence And Revelations

August 9 – August 15, 2021

  • Monday, August 9: Venus opposite Neptune Rx, Mercury quincunx Pluto Rx, Yod Apex: Mercury in Leo, Moon in Virgo
  • Tuesday, August 10: Mercury opposite Jupiter Rx, Mars square Nodes
  • Wednesday, August 11: Venus trine Pluto Rx, Mars square Juno, Mercury in Virgo until August 30, Moon in Libra

The New Moon in Leo begins with a blocked or delusional start as Venus opposes Neptune Rx and Mercury opposes Jupiter Rx. Using escapism to avoid fears or intense feelings can lead from a wrong track to a really wrong track.

Watch for exaggerated romanticizing or villifying another person. Become aware of over dependency or lack of dependency in relationships. Stay focused on self-empowerment to mitigate relationship drama.

This may be a week that proves the integrity of your choices, or reveals your lack thereof.

Mercury opposite Jupiter Rx on Tuesday can indicate a difficult realization that you just can’t do it all (and that’s okay.) Others may be prone to big talk with no action.

However, those with a solid foundation and clear direction aren’t phased by looming obstacles. It feels GOOD to rise to the challenge and do the hard work.

Venus’ trine to Pluto Rx on Wednesday can bring favorable results as long as you’re committed to living true, even through hardcore challenges or haunting memories of the past.

Mercury in Virgo begins to uncover new, more accurate information on Wednesday, which affirms your choices or reveals mistaken beliefs.

Mercury and Mars square the Nodes and misaligned quincunx aspects to retrograde planets can indicate a boring, repressed existence, requiring you to look deeper into issues and face reality to see clearly. But you may not like what you see.

Only the grounded, well-established, and clear minded may be able to take the hard road this week – listening to your wounds – ultimately awakening to conscious realizations that excite you and inspire you.

The rest remain stuck in suffering, delusions, or slumber.


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.
