Astrology by Astrolore: Powerful Guidance for Daily Life (August 19 – August 25, 2019)

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: August 19, 2019, through August 25, 2019

 

A note from Laurie:

I normally spend my Saturdays writing the blog. I putter and write, putter and write. I enjoy this process of writing, puttering and look and thinking of the week ahead.

This Saturday nothing went as planned. I started the day with a wonderful consultation with a delightful woman. I rarely meet with clients on weekends.

No sooner had I finished the consultation than I received word that my beloved aunt’s health was spirally quickly downhill. I think of this aunt as a mother. I love her from a very deep familial place. I quickly packed a bag and headed out for a four hour drive over the mountains to be with her.

Now I am at her home and will do my best to make an abbreviated post for each day of next week. Thank you for your patience. Please send prayers and love for the passing of my sweet auntie. I am honored to be at her side as she prepares for her passage.

FACE STRESS WITH BOLD ACTION

Monday, August 19, 2019:

The week begins on an assertive note with the Moon in confident decisive Aries. Your thoughts will be focused on your own personal needs, hopes, desires, and wishes.

Don’t be surprised if you find yourself facing stress today. Aries wants to teach us to develop courage, fortitude, and boldness. No one in the history of the world has developed courage without facing stress.

Therefore, welcome the stress that you encounter today. The courage you build will serve you well when you need it for the serious burdens and hardships that inevitably come with this life.

When the Moon is in Aries, you are ready to take on a challenge, be competitive, take a risk, prove something to yourself.

 

 

SET A PLAN IN MOTION

Tuesday, August 20, 2019:

The first few hours of the morning may prove to be fraught with power struggles that bring up anger and frustration. I know that sounds rough, but it will pass quickly (Moon square Pluto at 6:54 AM EDT). If you simply keep calm and quiet it doesn’t have to be an issue at all, let the stress roll off your back.

This evening the Moon, still in Aries, forms a lovely trine aspect to the Sun sweeping away any issues left from this morning. The Aries Moon pushes you to go after your goals, knowing that you have what it takes to push through whatever obstacles get in your way. If you have been procrastinating over something, now is the time to set it in motion.

 

 

TAKE A WALK IN NATURE

Wednesday, August 21, 2019:

In the wee hours of the morning, the Moon enters stable Taurus allowing you to release the activity and stress of the past few days. It is time to settle into a focus on comfort, loyalty, and connection.

At 5:06 AM EDT, Venus, the planet that represents love and beauty, follows Mars into Virgo. Full Virgo Season will settle in on Friday morning when the Sun joins them in Virgo. Can’t you feel the Summer coming to a close? Are you ready? With both Venus and the Moon in Earth signs, we step into the ability to experience life fully through your senses. Slow down, be quiet, be still, there is no need to push yourself. Indulge your senses with excellent food, aromas, beauty, music, and physical touch. Approach circumstances with a perspective of slow sensual awareness. Go for a long leisurely walk in nature. Breath deeply.

Mercury trine Jupiter today allowing your thoughts and opinions to expand with ease. Think and speak of growth and expansion and your opinions will land easily in the hearts and minds of others.

The Aries Moon is void-of-course from 12:07 AM EDT until she enters Taurus at 12:37 AM EDT. This suggests that what begins during this time will not have a significant impact.

 

 

SEEK COMFORT

Thursday, August 22, 2019:

Today is the last day with the Sun in Leo. Playtime is about to shift into a time of effort, study, and work. We are ready to settle down.

With the Moon in Taurus, this is a day to move slowly and engage with your 5 senses – taste, sight, touch, smell, and sound. Make sure each sense is fully fed.

Get outdoors in nature, smell the flowers, weed your garden, and walk barefoot on the earth. Listen to the trees sing and pay attention to the messages the earth is constantly offering. Enjoy cuddling with your partner, a hearty meal, and a walk in nature.

The desire and need for loyalty, security, peace, and comfort are what motivates you when the Moon is in Taurus. Look for sensuality and constancy. Resist change, slow down and relax. Seek comfort and an escape from the chaos of life.

The Taurus Moon is void-of-course from 5:32 PM EDT until she enters Gemini tomorrow morning at 10:34 AM EDT. This suggests that what begins during this time will not have a significant impact.

 

 

SUN ENTERS VIRGO

Friday, August 23, 2019:

At 6:01 AM EDT the Sun leaves playful Leo behind to enter analytical Virgo. This seems the most impressive and powerful shift from one sign to another. We have been busy enjoying summer, parties, cookouts, and festivals. Now it is time to go back to school, pick up a serious study or a project that has been bubbling in your mind.

At 10:34 AM EDT the Moon enters Gemini encouraging communication, curiosity, and gathering information. Both Virgo and Gemini are ‘ruled’ by Mercury, the planet of our mentality, making this a day of rational thought and conversation.

When the Moon is in Gemini we tend to be talkative, lighthearted, and friendly. There are so many stories to hear and stories to share.

Your mind is probably moving quickly, as you seek mental stimulation and lots of activity. If you notice restlessness find intellectually stimulating folks to engage with.

At 10:57 AM EDT we come to the Last Quarter Moon, a challenging square aspect between the Sun and Moon. The First and Last Quarter Moons are times of great possibilities or crisis. This is a time to make a choice that will move you in one direction or another. Choose well.

CHARISMA AND PASSION

Saturday, August 24, 2019:

The weekend begins as Venus joins with Mars in cautious exacting Virgo. When Venus and Mars come together your desire for intimacy and love increase. You find that you can be direct and purposeful in your search for a partner or lover. Mars represents desire and drive while Venus represents attraction and allure. Venus softens Mars even as Mars toughens up Venus. Together they increase your charisma and issues of love and passion draw you in. This is a great time for finding new friendships, new lovers, or new partners.

As the Moon continues its path through Gemini you find yourself increasingly curious and seeking to understand all that is brought to your attention. The Gemini Moon wants you to engage socially and bring versatility and diversity to your way of life.

Make a list of incidental chores that need to be done, phone calls and emails that you need to respond to. This is a great day to run around town meeting with folks and getting things done.

Conversations move quickly and with usual wit. Don’t forget to listen as well as speak. With others speaking more freely than usual you may be surprised at what you learn.

 

 

THE DAY FOR FRIENDS – THE EVENING FOR FAMILY

Sunday, August 25, 2019:

The Moon continues its path through Gemini encouraging communication, curiosity, and the gathering of information. This is a great day to listen to the stories of others and tell your own. The energy of the Gemini Moon is friendly, lighthearted, and talkative. A Sunday brunch with your most chatty friends would be a great way to start the day.

At 5:06 PM EDT things change just the way you would like them to on a Sunday evening as the Moon enters Cancer. Now it will be time to head home and settle in for an evening of comfort food, family, and intimate loved ones.

You may spend the evening feeling more nostalgic and domestic than usual. Your emotions are heightened and you may want to share memories of the past. Allow yourself to indulge in chocolate cake or whatever comfort food soothes your soul.

* 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.

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

MATURITY REQUIRED

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 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?

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.

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.

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.

“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!

EARLY MORNING POSSIBILITIES

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.
 
 

DEDICATED INNER CHANGE

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.

__________________________________

CHOOSE WITH JOY

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.
 
 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME

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!

SEEK WISDOM THROUGH FUN

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!
 
 

PERFECT DAY FOR SOCIALIZING

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.

A DISCERNIBLE SHIFT

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.

DEFIANT NEED FOR CHANGE

Monday, July 29, 2019:

The Moon enters sensitive Cancer this morning at 7:31 AM EDT. When the Moon is in Cancer we usually seek connection, comfort, and family. 

This whole notion may be turned on its head as the Sun square Uranus shakes the ground beneath your feet. As you sense a powerful, unknowable change approaching, you experience excitement or anxiety. You understand instinctively that this change will shift your forward trajectory. 

Stay flexible in your approach and calm in your communications. Notice where you are experiencing angst and restlessness. Be proactive in welcoming and directing change. You may be inspired by an intense need for freedom and independence. You will demand your right to defiantly go your own way. Keep your eyes open, and pay attention to unexpected epiphanies. 

Sun square Uranus is a powerful transit that deserves your attention. Remember that everyone you encounter is on the same unstable ground. Be kind.

IMPORTANCE OF TRUST

Tuesday, July 30, 2019:

The Moon’s continued movement through Cancer suggests a day of moodiness and sensitivity. You will find yourself alternating between various emotional states, oscillating between sentimental, anxious, moody, domestic, affectionate, or sentimental can leave you exhausted by the end of the day.

Cancer is ruled by the fast-moving Moon causing the rapidly changing emotions. Devote yourself to developing deep connections with family (bio or chosen) members. Cook together or spend time on other domestic duties.

With the Moon opposing Saturn and Pluto, a serious effort may be required to maintain, gain, or regain trust. Don’t underestimate the importance of doing what it takes.

DRAMATIC SELF EXPRESSION – LEO NEW MOON

Wednesday, July 31, 2019:

The Moon enters Leo this morning at 9:19 AM EDT, shifting the emotional tone from tender and moody to playful and dramatic. Now is a great time to take a creative risk and allow others to see who you are when you have nothing to hide. 

Leo can bring out the most arrogant, self-centered side of your nature or the most generous open-hearted side. It is up to you to decide who you want to be.

Think about what it was like to be a small child before the world stifled your creativity. Seek that way of being in the coming days. Find children to play with. Let them teach you what it means to live with open abandon. 

The Leo New Moon comes at the very end of the day. You will notice that some folks will talk about it today and others won’t mention it until tomorrow. It depends on your time zone.

It is always best to do your New Moon ritual following the exact time of the New Moon, so wait until tomorrow for that.

~~New Moon Ritual ~~

LEO NEW MOON RITUAL

Take a moment to write down the changes you wish to begin, create, or increase in this Moon Cycle. The Leo New Moon suggests that you plant a seed of play, expression, and generosity.

Have two candles available. Light a candle to represent yourself as you are at the moment. Light another candle as inspiration for what you intend to create. Take a moment to focus as you light the first candle. Then as you light the second candle, imagine drawing toward you what you want to create.  Physically bring the two candles closer together.

Do this each day for two weeks until the Aquarius Full Moon on August 15th. At that time bring the candles fully together as you acknowledge the result of what you have created.

 

 

MOVE FORWARD – MERCURY DIRECT

Thursday, August 1, 2019:

As you start the day, take a moment to breathe a sigh of relief. Mercury has turned around at 23 degrees Cancer and is now crawling forward.

It will take a few days for Mercury to pick up speed but the halting, backward motion is behind us. Over the coming days, get back on track and move forward in your projects and communications.

Take time to review your experience of this Mercury retrograde period (since July 7th). Did you manage to get previously unfinished details and enterprises completed? Start and rev your engine, put yourself into gear and begin forward movement. This should feel very good. 

The Moon is playful and fun in Leo, forming a lovely trine to expansive Jupiter this morning. Avoid frustration and anger by engaging in active physical play (sports or lovemaking) this afternoon as the Moon joins with Mars.

DESIRE FOR FREEDOM

Friday, August 2, 2019:

Today may mirror the challenges of Monday as Venus now steps up to a square aspect to Uranus. You may find yourself questioning the stability of your closest love relationships.

The challenge may come from you or your partner. You will each feel an increase in desire for freedom, excitement, or simply for something new. 

If you have recently felt restricted or tied down to a partner, make sure you take plenty of space today. If you don’t get off on your own you may feel backed into a corner and end up lashing out in a way you will regret down the line. 

Stir up some excitement with your partner. This is not the day to engage in the same old patterns you constantly go back to. Look for what is unusual and gets your blood stirred up. 

Don’t take unnecessary risks with money or with love. Leave your credit cards at home. If you are in a committed relationship, don’t call that man who gave you his number. It would be so easy to act on impulse only to regret it later. 

Today’s Virgo Moon will help you be more discriminating in your actions and yet may also heighten your critical voice.

PRACTICAL ACTIVITIES

Saturday, August 3, 2019:

This weekend is not a time for beach parties or great excitement. Remember that the Moon sets the tone for each day and changes sign every 2 ½ days. 

With the Moon in Virgo, you will find yourself more serious, dedicated, and thoughtful than usual. You will notice yourself being drawn toward practical activities.

You may find yourself organizing and analyzing everything you do. Don’t allow perfectionism to stop progress. Make sure that you allow ‘good-enough’ to be good enough. 

You may also feel more critical and detail-oriented. Work on projects that will benefit from paying particular attention to details. There are so many things that need to get done. Weed the garden, wash the car, clear out the garage.

Enjoy the process from a mindset of meditative awareness.

 

 

A SOCIAL DAY

Sunday, August 4, 2019:

I hope you got all your productive tasks done yesterday and are ready to have a more social day today. 

At 9:30 AM EDT the Moon enters diplomatic, relationship-oriented Libra. Today is a day to engage with others socially.

Commit yourself to fairness and pleasure in all your interactions. Offer the gifts of kindness and beauty to everyone you encounter.

It may be difficult to take a firm stand but perhaps you don’t need to. Let yourself off the hook. Rest in pleasure. There is always another day to take action or speak up. It will be easier to go with the flow than to force any issue.

This evening supports romantic or diplomatic endeavors, socializing, and creating art. Remember that we all desire companionship, kindness, and beauty. Enjoy cultural activities with friends. A trip to a museum, concert, or a small gathering with compatible others is the perfect way to spend the evening.

* 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.

 

 

There is something out there. Astrology is like a game of chess with an invisible partner. We set out the board and the rules, make a move, and then find that the pieces are moving, as if by an invisible hand.” ~ Noel Tyl
