Weekly Weather Forecast: August 5, 2019, through August 11, 2019 – written by me: Laurie Farrington

A note from a client:
“My very first reading with Laurie was nothing short of impactful. It felt as if Laurie could see right into my biography, and at times during our conversation, I was moved speechless by the information she revealed. Laurie brought some crucial aspects of my chart to my attention, in a very succinct way. She showed deep understanding for my individual constellation and offered strong, helpful and encouraging comments while listening really closely. I’ll surely be processing the insights Laurie offered in our session for a good while and I look forward to the next astrological session with her.” ~ ER from Berlin, Germany   Schedule your appointment today!

Please keep in mind that your personal transits can override these universal ones. A personal consultation will fill in the gaps and offer deep understanding.



Monday, August 5, 2019:

Today begins on a high note as the lovely Libra Moon sextiles Venus, the Sun, and Jupiter before 9:30 AM EDT. Look for opportunities and possibilities, say yes to what is offered. Go for an early morning run simply for pleasure or meet a friend for coffee before the workday begins.
By the time mid-morning comes, work kicks into high gear and the simplicity of the morning fades. You may find it necessary to have conversations and make decisions that are not easy. Do your best to leave those challenges at work.
The evening has its own difficulties. A power struggle could erupt around bedtime. Don’t take the bait or engage in defensive measures. By focusing your attention, the difficulty behind this struggle can be transmuted into passion. By releasing your need to be right, a powerful connection can occur.


Tuesday, August 6, 2019:

If you wake feeling critical or cranky, take time for a brief meditation. Allow that edginess to fade into a quiet, simple morning while the Moon spends her last few hours in Libra. The Moon enters Scorpio at 11:31 AM EDT.
As the Moon passes through Scorpio, you are inclined to examine the deeper (even the darker) side of your personal life and circumstances. Allow yourself to make dedicated inner change through the elimination of what stands in the way of regeneration.
While the Moon is in this powerful fixed water sign, you will seek intensity, passion, and deep emotion. You are aware that knowledge is power. You are motivated to find out what makes yourself, other people, and/or situations ‘tick’. You are not afraid to go deep or ask hard questions.
The Libra Moon is void-of-course from 3:36 AM EDT until she enters Scorpio at 11:31 AM EDT. This suggests that what begins or occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.


Wednesday, August 7, 2019:

The Sun in its home sign of Leo forms a flowing trine aspect to Jupiter in its home sign of Sagittarius. This is a major high point of Leo Season 2019. If you have personal planets near 14° of any fire sign (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius,) you should take today off from work. Consider taking a personal day tomorrow as well. Allow full expression of joy, exuberance, and buoyancy.
With Venus joining this pattern tomorrow, find friends or lovers to join you in play, travel, and fun.
Expansion is the name of the game.
Of course, there is always space for a few kinks in the cloth. At 1:31 PM EDT we reach the First Quarter phase of the Moon. The Scorpio Moon is at odds (square aspect) with the cheerfulness of Leo. Find the opportunity within any challenges that occur. Make sure you are not leaving anyone behind in the heat of your excitement. Allow space and time for passion, emotional depth, and healing. The choices and decisions you make now will move your life in one direction or another. Choose with the full Joy of the day.


Thursday, August 8, 2019:

Today is my birthday and I couldn’t ask for a better day than this! Venus (the planet of love and beauty) in Leo forms a lovely flowing trine to Jupiter (the planet of expansion and growth).
Today is a similarly delightful day to yesterday. However, this is THE day to declare your love with lively animation and exuberance. Don’t hold back on expressions of love and connection. Expect a day of abundance, a day of beauty, connection, desire, pleasure, and love. Share your heart with grand gestures and generosity.
At 4:34 PM EDT the Moon jumps into the action when she joins Jupiter in Sagittarius. With the Moon in Sagittarius, you want to see the world through a new filter and expand your perspective. Cultivate understanding, humor, and wisdom. If ever there was a Thursday night to go out dancing, this would be it!
The Scorpio Moon is void-of-course from 10:58 AM EDT until she enters Sagittarius at 4:34 PM EDT. This suggests that what begins or occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.

Friday, August 9, 2019:

Expect a simple, fun day with the Moon in idealistic Sagittarius. This evening as the Moon makes lovely aspects to Jupiter and Venus, let loose and have fun. There is a light, expansive vibe to the day.
Allow others to have their say and don’t get too attached to your personal opinions. You don’t need to own the truth. Listen to what others think, as you will develop far more wisdom by listening than by speaking.
This evening is a time to let loose and have fun. Kick up your heels, go on a road trip, go dancing, play, and simply have fun! Expand your view of the world, seek wisdom, or just enjoy this beautiful summer weekend. Find fun parties, meet up with friends, engage with folks of all types!


Saturday, August 10, 2019:

The Moon continues through Sagittarius extending the positive, upbeat mood of the past few days. Today is the day for summer parties, an ideal day for socializing, traveling and opening your mind to new ways of thinking. Don’t stay in the comfort zone of your everyday friends. Seek out those you don’t know or those who have a very different perspective from your own. Allow yourself to see the world through the eyes of others.
Jupiter, the planet that rules Sagittarius, is considered to be the planet of luck and good fortune. Watch for unexpected synchronicity and epiphanies.
With so much Fire energy in the planetary alignments your physical vitality is likely to be high and your gut instincts razor sharp. Look for adventures, experiences, and opportunities for new friendships.
Keep things light and fun.
The Sagittarius Moon is void-of-course from 3:51 PM EDT until she enters Capricorn at 12:50 AM EDT Sunday morning. This suggests that what begins or occurs during this time will not have significant impact.


Sunday, August 11, 2019:

By the time you wake this morning, the Moon has left Sagittarius behind to enter serious, authoritative Capricorn. You may have an emotional hangover from too much fun over the past few days. With Mercury changing sign and Jupiter and Uranus changing direction, today brings a discernible shift.
Jupiter, having been retrograde since April 10th, turns direct at 14° Sagittarius. Over the past four months, growth has been stagnant in the whole sign house that holds Sagittarius in your chart. Forward motion will begin over the coming days. Jupiter spends a year in each sign and offers advantage and growth wherever it moves. It remains in Sagittarius until December.
At 3:45 PM EDT Mercury enters Leo, bringing drama and expression to your thinking and communications. Mercury remains in Leo until August 29th.
Uranus stations retrograde at 6° of Taurus. Expect and prepare for big, unexpected changes if you have personal planets between 2° and 6° of any fixed sign (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius.)
Set up an appointment with me to understand and prepare for these radical life changes.
* 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 VOC* time, as that aspect holds its influence throughout the VOC*.
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.
