It’s a great day to be more genuine in relationships, public image, or finances. Become aware of regimes that fail to accept flaws or celebrate mistakes. Authenticity is needed for true confidence and real love.

As the Gibbous Moon continues to wane in relationship-security Taurus after a conjunct to security-upsetting Uranus Rx in Taurus, Venus makes an imbalanced quincunx to Uranus. However, the anxious Moon makes a harmonizing trine to Mercury and Mars in Virgo, as well as Pluto Rx in Capricorn after a creative sextile to Neptune Rx in Pisces. Meanwhile, the Virgo Sun of perfectionism moves in on a roadblocking square to the emotional Moon’s nodes.

Relationships to other people, including loved ones as well as a community, may experience a slight disruption or a sense of uncertainty.

For some, self-doubt can be triggered by the realization you aren’t living up to perceived standards forced upon you by self or society – which can affect your home life, work, income level, or relationships in general.

To clear this relationship or networking hurdle, vulnerable authenticity might be needed. Maybe you already long for freedom to be loved and respected as you are without fear of abandonment or betrayal….

Self-confidence allows you to be vulnerable in intimacy. It also allows you to put yourself out into the world. But REAL confidence can only come from being the real you, including your strengths AND weaknesses. There’s no need to fall for the facade of fake confidence that rules social media.

To experience your best potential, alliances are needed that you can trust, rather than people or supporters who pressure you to earn their approval, love, or “generosity.”

Real freedom doesn’t come from avoiding commitment; it comes from TRUE commitment to people who give you freedom to be yourself.

If you want to experience real love in life, home, and work, all you can do is be yourself – with people who are also real.


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.
