Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: August 12, 2019, through August 18, 2019
written by me, Laurie Farrington
A note from a client:
I highly recommend an astrological reading with Laurie. Her insights are human, helpful, and enlightening. Laurie is helpful and accepting of where people are in their lives as well as challenging them to grow.
For those that do not study astrology Laurie consultation is easily accessible. I have used Laurie’s astrological services for many years and always learn and grow through our conversations.
Her readings are easy to hear and insightful. I never feel lost in the “ether” of astrology when Laurie is explaining it. She brings a wealth of experience, desire to teach and understand, and general fun to her readings.
I highly recommend Laurie for any teaching and/or astrological readings. ~ JC from The Dalles, Oregon

Please keep in mind that your personal transits can override these more universal ones. A personal consultation offers deep understanding.
Monday, August 12, 2019:
The Moon is in Capricorn, bringing with it a level of seriousness, maturity, and caution. You may wake this morning shaking your head with displeasure at a reality you would rather not face.
Wouldn’t it be nice if while the Sun was in warm bright Leo, we could ignore hard truths? Your best bet is to open your eyes to clarity on the actual situation. Whatever the challenge is, look at it directly.
The Capricorn Moon joins with Saturn (5:54 AM EDT) and Pluto (6:12 PM EDT) suggesting and offering these difficulties. Allow space to be alone in serious contemplation today.
Whatever house contains Capricorn in your chart is likely the main area of hardship, frustration, and struggle. Keep an eye on this area of your life as it will be a major place of required effort for many months to come.
The Capricorn Moon is void-of-course from 6:12 PM EDT until she enters Aquarius tomorrow morning at 11:36 AM EDT. This condition suggests that what begins or occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.
THE STATE OF THE WORLD
Tuesday, August 13, 2019:
Some crankiness from yesterday may linger this morning, but when the Moon leaves Capricorn you will feel the shift.
At 11:36 AM EDT the Moon enters innovative Aquarius, renewing your hope in humanitarian ideals. This shift brings us a much easier day than yesterday. Your mood is lighter and you are able to see things with objectivity.
Aquarius is innovative and unconventional. When the Moon is here you are able to see the other side of the coin without your emotions getting in the way.
Today is a great day to listen to others who have very different beliefs than you. Widen your interests, look for a more expansive or humanitarian perspective. Aquarius suggests the need to march to the beat of a different drummer. Go ahead and express the parts of yourself that are most unique.
You can anticipate that others will have more understanding of your quirks than usual. You will care less if they do not.
Engage in intellectual conversations about the state of the world. What can be done to help the suffering of humanity?
The Capricorn Moon is void-of-course until she enters Aquarius at 11:36 AM EDT. This condition suggests that what begins or occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.
LOVE – FRIENDSHIP – CREATIVITY
Wednesday, August 14, 2019:
The Sun joins with Venus today, focusing your attention on love, partnerships, finances, beauty, and creativity. This meetup offers a pleasant day made for socialization, romance, and friendships.
If you have personal planets near 21 degrees of Leo, this will be a particularly great day for you.
For all of you, go ahead and focus on pleasure, comfort, and fun. This is a great time to purchase items for your wardrobe or to hire a home decorator. Take advantage of your greatly improved sense of beauty, style, and ornamentation. The Moon in Aquarius will keep you from spending money from a place of emotional neediness. Your desires come from a true sense of harmony and beauty.
Are you nervous and uncertain as you look at the path ahead? Let Laurie help you see your life from a perspective that will illuminate the way forward. Together we will explore your hopes, dreams, goals, your current path, and your life purpose. Make your appointment today!
AQUARIUS FULL MOON: SELFISHNESS VS SELFLESSNESS
Thursday, August 15, 2019:
At each Full Moon, the luminaries (Sun & Moon) are in opposing Zodiac signs. The polarity between them seeks balance and clarity. At this Aquarius Full Moon, we work to balance our individual needs with the humanitarian needs of the collective.
Between selfishness and selflessness, there is a spot to hold steady. Find that place today.
At the Full Moon, we feel a buzz of recognition and understanding as the interplay between these polarities is exposed.
Think back to February 4, 2019. That was the last time we had a New Moon in Aquarius. Go back to calendars or journals, consider what you may have started thinking about or doing at that time. Consider that today’s Aquarius Full Moon is the culmination of what began then. Are you able to make a connection? This is why it is a good idea to keep a journal. Be sure to always make entries at the New and Full Moons.
Full individual expression is necessary in order to have anything to give to the larger community. Keep your eyes on this balance point today.
The Aquarius Moon is void-of-course from 9:02 PM EDT until she enters Pisces at 11:50 PM EDT. This condition suggests that what begins or occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.
ELATION – RESTLESSNESS
Friday, August 16, 2019:
Don’t expect your daily routines or communications to be ordinary or run-of-the-mill today. With Mercury (newly in dramatic Leo) square Uranus, your interactions with others may bring you to the brink of excitement or the edge of anxiety. You can expect to hear, learn, or experience something that is unsettling.
Don’t bother trying to hold steady with your normal routines. Unanticipated thoughts or ideas may come out of left field.
Put your most dynamic ambition into new and unusual plans and projects. Open your perspective to an elevated view.
It may not be easy, but today’s Pisces Moon does her best to keep you in a state of passive imagination and dreaminess.
Look for balance by bringing unusual ideas to your spiritual practice. Open your spiritual eyes to see beyond where you have stopped in the past. Meditation or prayer will support the changes that are bubbling within your mind.
TENDERNESS AND EMPATHY
Saturday, August 17, 2019:
Ah. Go ahead and stay in bed late. Later in the day, take a nap. There is no reason to push yourself into accomplishment or frenetic socializing. Today is a dreamy day with the Moon in Pisces. You may find that folks you normally enjoy spending time with leave you feeling worn out and simply tired. Take that as an indication that you need a day of solitary rest. When the Moon is in Pisces it is easy to absorb and feel all the emotions of the people you encounter. No wonder you feel tired.
If you pay attention and use the days of the Pisces Moon each month to catch up on your rest, it will make the entire rest of the month easier to manage.
Even if you normally feel strong and self-assured, while the Moon is in Pisces you may feel vulnerable and defenseless. Don’t let it worry you. Spend the day resting, reflecting, daydreaming, meditating, listening to music, or watching movies. Allow tenderness and empathy to move and open your heart.
The Pisces Moon is void-of-course from 6:35 PM EDT until she enters Aries tomorrow at 12:33 PM EDT. This condition suggests that what begins or occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.
PRODUCTIVE DISCIPLINED ACTION AHEAD
Sunday, August 18, 2019:
Mars, the planet of assertiveness and determination has been happy, fiery, and dramatic in Leo since the first of July. Today Mars leaves Leo behind to enter meticulous, analytical Virgo. Mars is not delighted with this move as Virgo’s humble attitude does not fit with Mars’ idea of himself as a warrior. However, we can always count on Mars to make the most of whatever sign he finds himself in.
While in Virgo, Mars can be passionate about doing the ‘right’ thing, connecting the dots, and being of service to others in a practical way. His actions will be efficient, productive, and disciplined. Look to what house contains Virgo in your chart to see what area of your life is activated with this workhorse energy. Mars will remain in Virgo until October 4th.
At 12:33 PM EDT the Moon leaves behind yesterday’s Piscean dreaminess to enter assertive, restless Aries. This afternoon is great for taking action on your own for yourself. When the Moon is in Aries you may be too self-focused to work well with others. You will do best to go on a solitary run, bike ride, or hike. Use your physical body and face all fears with courage and determination.
The Pisces Moon is void-of-course until she enters Aries at 12:33 PM EDT. This condition suggests that what begins or occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.
* In these weekly reports, I am exploring the major aspects formed by transit between the planets. I do not consider every aspect that the Moon makes each day as they can be numerous and are often fleeting moods. I will consider the final major aspect formed by the Moon prior to its void-of-course time, as that aspect holds its influence throughout the void-of-course.
The aspects under consideration: conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines, and oppositions.
The planets I work with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.
“For all its complexity, however, astrology remains fundamentally simple. It offers a time-honored system of symbols that sum up key aspects of human life while providing profound insights and practical guidance.” ~Anne M. Nordhaus-Bike
