  • Sun in Virgo 1° 48′
  • Waning Full Moon in Pisces and Aries
  • VOC Moon: 9:12am Aug 24 – 6:57pm Aug 24 UTC
  • Moon opposite Mercury, conjunct Neptune Rx, sextile Pluto Rx
  • Prominent Mode: Mutable

  • Retrogrades: Jupiter Rx, Saturn Rx, Uranus Rx, Neptune Rx, Pluto Rx, Chiron Rx, Pallas Rx
  • Mercury opposite Neptune Rx

It’s a lovely day for art, music, slacking off, or mundane multi-tasking. But watch for pointless or confusing information. It might be easy to get side-tracked or sucked into a rabbit hole of misinformation.

Mercury in Virgo opposes Neptune Rx in Pisces as the Void-of-Course Moon awakens from its slumber to tenacious Aries and makes an imbalanced quincunx to the Virgo Sun as well as a sextile to Pluto Rx which Mercury trines on Thursday. Opposition energy takes the lead as harmonious Trine energy begins to fade in an ongoing changeable atmosphere.

It might be too easy to slack off early morning, or waste the day away on shallow conversation or useless information. It might be a good time to take care of mundane tasks or obligations that don’t require accurate or direct communication.

Communications may be wrought with confusion or disappointment. People might appear to know what they’re talking about but really don’t.

Some may be able to get clear insight on a matter if you have the tenacity to keep digging and allow buried emotions to surface. Intuition is clear.

Criticism toward self or others may reveal important information, as long as it’s an accurate assessment.

Consider who or what routinely wastes your energy.

Otherwise, it isn’t the best day to make decisions. Facts may be easily distorted and absent-minded distractions abound, especially if the mind is convoluted. Make plenty of room for mistakes.

To get to the truth of a matter, tune in to subtle feelings or intuition. Or, just take the day off and do some art.


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.
