monday august 24th-
at 6:35am mercury in virgo quincunxes retrograde chiron in aries, creating tension between the conscious mind and intellect and the Wounded Healer planetoid. mercury/chiron can bring us face to face with old wounds and pain around communication, seeing/dealing with reality and how we deal with our anger and rage. the masculine is in the midst of major healing and upgrade but first all the shadow around masculine energy within and without needs to come to Light. luckily mercury is also about to trine uranus- just as all the virgo planets have been doing in the last 10 or so days. wounds and pain coming to Light can be transformed and broken free from if we are willing to do the work. the key is to face what is arising right now- so don’t stuff things!
mars in aries squares retrograde saturn in capricorn at 11:19am, creating tension between the two malefic planets seen as super intense to the ancients. mars and saturn are in the signs they rule- both very strongly placed- but in the square aspect they are battling each other! mars in aries is the 99%, the individual and the will and drive. he wants what he wants and he wants it NOW. saturn is the 1%, the government and the patriarchy. he wants to hold onto power and resist revolution and change. these two going head to head can be intense. be aware of your own tendencies towards unbridled anger, rage and selfishness or desire for control, repression and rigidity. things can get amplified right now and we want to be aware of our own shadow tendencies so they do not run us aground. at best we have incredible capacity for staying power right now!!! (this is is the first of 3 mars/saturn squares- as mars will go retrograde on 9/9. pay attention to what is up for you today as there is insight into the coming mars’ Underworld journey incoming- personally and collectively)
tuesday august 25th-
at 8:18am mercury in virgo trines retrograde uranus in taurus, aligning the lower mind with the Higher Mind in expansive and profound ways. pay attention to insights, aha moments, and bolt out of the blue awarenesses incoming. sudden and unexpected information, communications and connections are possible. with both bodies in earth signs the focus can be on work, career and money- but it can also be on your health, vitality and well being in the world.
retrograde uranus in taurus semisquares the north node in gemini at 11:16am, creating tension between the Rebel and Revolutionary and the node of destiny and evolution. uranus is bringing sudden and unexpected shifts on our paths right now- personally and collectively. staying open to new information incoming, conversations that are eye opening and changing your mind is key!
at 3:26pm venus in cancer opposes retrograde jupiter in capricorn, creating an opposition between the two Benefic planets. venus/jupitetr is great for being social, enjoying life and having fun. yet venus is heading into trigger pluto, saturn, eris and lilith so not all is harmonious, peaceful and easygoing in the realms of Love, money, relationship, home and family. pay attention to what is getting activated today and do not sweep things under the carpet!
mercury in virgo sesquiquadrates retrograde saturn in capricorn and mars in aries (4:11pm and 8:48pm respectively) triggering the mars/saturn square that was exact yesterday. conversation can be heavy, realistic, depressing or pessimistic. this is a time to be discerning and see clearly. watch out for repressed anger and rage or impulsive expression of either. harnessing the ego energy so that it is in service to something Higher is key. tonight is a night to get ral.
wednesday august 26th-
there are no major aspects today <3
thursday august 27th-
at 2:12pm venus in cancer trines retrograde neptune in pisces, aligning the lower heart and Higher Heart in amazing ways! this is amazing astrology for romance, creativity, spirituality, mysticism, intuition and empathy. when we elevate our lower desires to a Higher Plane we can find deep and lasting fulfillment on many levels. there can be beautiful things happening in relationship right now- to others, to our own feminine/Soul within and in regards to our relationship to the Universe. enjoy!
friday august 28th-
at 12:16am retrograde pluto in capricorn squares juno in libra, creating tension and friction between the Lord of the Underworld and the asteroid Goddess of partnership and marriage. pluto/juno excavates deep stuff in relationship dynamics, commitments and business arrangements- which can ultimately support deep healing and transformation. yet the square can also unearth or aggravate power/control dynamics. and further- the deep stuff that gets brought to the surface may not be stuff that can be healed. sometimes the only way towards transformation is to let something fully die and to move on and create new life and Love in different situations or with different people. being willing to look at structures, obligations, commitments and old paradigm beliefs or contracts with a critical, discerning eye is key right now. transformation is possible- but best you start within.
saturday august 29th-
at 6:28am mercury in virgo trines retrograde jupiter in capricorn, linking the mind and intellect with the planet of expansion and positivity. this is a great day for communication, learning, teaching and travel. with mercury in discerning virgo and Jupiter in successful capricorn we can get some great ideas in the realms of work, health and service. practical, tangible, material focused matters are on our minds today.
sunday august 30th-
a 6:31am venus in cancer opposes retrograde pluto in capricorn, creating tension and friction between the Goddess of Love and beauty and the Lord of the Underworld. today and tomorrow both venus and mars tensely link with pluto which can bring up some big time shadow dynamics in relationships situations. jealousy, possessiveness, obsession and the desire for power and control can be super strong right now. because of the cancer/capricorn opposition this can be playing out in home/family situations, with children and regarding our own childhood as well. being willing to see into the shadows- our own but also that of others- is key.
mercury in virgo opposes retrograde neptune in pisces at 11:44am, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the planet of mysticism, romance, illusion and delusion. we are in the midst of a lot of neptune oppositions- which is a time we all want to make sure we are willing and able to see/face the Truth. the virgo planets demand discernment- but neptune in pisces wants to see things through rose colored glasses (or sometimes beer goggles or with our head in the sand!). make sure you are being honest and above board today and ensure others are as well. nebulous communications and fear/fantasy based thinking need to be seen through.
retrograde chiron in aries trines vesta in leo at 2:25pm, linking the Wounded Healer with the Priestess asteroid Goddess of focus, devotion and sacrifice. amazing healing energy is accessible right now when we focus the healing on our passions, desires, ego, anger and self assertion. this fire trine can activate and ignite our devotion to healthy self expression as well as a healthy masculine expression in the world. the healing of the Divine Masculine is an inside job- start within.
have a blessed week…
