Tuesday, August 1
A dynamic Full Moon in Aquarius helps us consolidate and manifest something important to us.
Thanks to a trine between salesman-planets Mars and Jupiter, results can be excellent for promoting our creativity or something related to friends, culture, altruism, activism, or a personal mission. Both Mars and Jupiter are bold and can come on strong, while Mercury the messenger in opposition to stern Saturn has a cooling effect on communications. We can knock on a key door, launch a campaign for publicity, sales, politics, recruitment, a petition or something else that requires enthusiasm and force to get into view. Before reaching or blasting out, we can use the Mercury-Saturn tension to structure things strategically.
Act now; don’t let anything hold you back! Mercury is poised to enter retrograde shadow in two days, and right now we can start something new.
The Full Moon is exact at 11:32 am (2:32 pm ET), triggering the Sabian symbol for 9-10 Aquarius:
A POPULAR IDEAL IS MADE TO REALIZE THAT AS A PERSON HE IS NOT THIS IDEAL. The need to deal with human beings as persons rather than as screens upon which one projects one’s dream… a final statement on the relationship between mental-spiritual vision and living reality, between persons and the ideal they appear to incarnate, between the ‘great lover Image’ and one’s need for love — a love his presence stimulated and aroused. The ‘star’ on the movie screen is not the actual person. The star’s popularity fades away, the person remains. What has this episode of popularity actually done to the person? This is a question that can be applied to a great variety of circumstances… Person versus archetype… SELF-REVALUATION.
Guardian Angel, help me see myself honestly and live in congruence with my ideals now.
Wednesday, August 2
Morning is great for independent, creative activities and for gathering knowledge.
But it’s not so great for people connections, with a square from Moon in Aquarius to ruler Uranus that accentuates the rebellious tone of this placement, further intensified by the Full Moon portal.
We can apply this restless individualism to:
- Break out of a rut
- Break the rules
- Set a limit
- Close a cycle
- Quit a job
- Contemplate and explore our options
- Research an impending move
- Read the fine print
- Throw ourselves into investigative research involving a career change or refinancing a home
- Look at how things affect our best interests
We are wise to avoid being rebellious without reason, getting fanatical, or breaking tradition just for the sake of it.
If you have something you want to start or promote, set it in motion today—as today is the last day of Mercury being fully direct.
The energy becomes more harmonious at 2:15 pm (5:15 ET), when Moon makes an opposition to Venus that favors soaking in beauty and art, enjoying the moment with friends, or doing some social activity with no particular goal or agenda, since the VOC can bring surprise outcomes.
At 8:05 pm (11:05 ET), Moon enters gentle Pisces, accenting the intuitive force of the still-active Full Moon. We can meditate, pray, connect with angels and spirit guides, do dream yoga, or take in a spiritual or healing movie, audio or presentation of some kind. Avoid horror films, dense vibrations, liquor, and hallucinogenic substances.
We are not alone or without protection, the Divine Guardian is with us, shielding us in Its almighty presence, now and always.
Thursday, August 3
Moon in dreamy Pisces makes aspects that help ground her potential. Still on the portal of Tuesday’s Full Moon, Luna connects with practical Saturn, Mercury the messenger in grounded Virgo, and Jupiter in prosperous Taurus. We can connect with our vision and take concrete action on things we started before, as Mercury now goes into pre-retrograde shadow.
Connect, communicate and collaborate before 8:15 pm (11:15 ET), when Moon makes an opposition to pushy Mars, fueling impatience and tempers. We can do armchair activism or organize a promotion of spiritual or creative products or services.
My good cannot be withheld from me, it cannot be denied me or taken away. My good comes from Spirit, who has infinite substance It uses to bring forth my full good (mention specific needs), here and now.
Friday, August 4
This is a good day for unusual people contacts.
This morning, Moon in sensitive Pisces sextiles original Uranus, triggering opportunities that are sudden and/or in new directions. Knock again on that door you tried before.
Afternoon and evening, with Moon’s contacts to sweet Venus and gentle Neptune, are creative, sensitive and romantic. Go on a date, make love, take in a film, enjoy nature, picnic with your partner. These energies are also great for creativity and media production. However you use them, don’t waste them on superficial or low-vibration situations.
Besides being passionate, tonight may get hyper. At 6:21 pm (9:21 ET), Moon sextiles intense Pluto, facilitating deep emotions and powerful connections. At 8:18 (11: ET), Luna enters restless Aries. If we have a hard time sleeping, we can declutter, do laundry, or some other home task requiring nerve and energy.
Spirit knows the best plan for my day, and guides me and supports me to follow it now.
Saturday, August 5
Today’s adventuresome numerology of 5 accents the bold, restlessness of Aries Moon.
All kinds of energetic efforts and enterprises are favored. We can go on an adventure, close a sale, work on property renovation, confront a bully, set a limit, go to a protest, start on online petition, try something new, fix the car, enjoy sports or collaborate in a rescue effort.
Nighttime is best for people connections, thanks to Moon’s trine to Sun that’s exact at 6:40 pm (9:40 ET).
I am a tower of wellness, of light and of success, now and always.
Sunday, August 6
Today brings expansion and excitement in connections for work or pleasure.
Today’s numerology of 6 relates to fun, warmth, family, love and abundance. We can go to a party or attend a group, organize a class or reunion, gather with clients, students, colleagues, family or our partner.
Sun squares expansive Jupiter—planetary ruler of number 6—spotlighting promotional activities of some kind, as well as spirituality and teaching.
An afternoon trine from Moon to love-planet Venus triggers waves of tenderness that harmonize and sweeten connections, making a sexy combination with Aries Moon that brings excitement: with a partner or a date, with a dear one, or with just about anyone. It’s a precious influence we can use to enjoy and expand an important relationships or connection.
Take key actions and make key connections before 9:15 pm (12:15 ET), when Moon goes VOC. If we’re still up, we can take a hot bath or watch sports or an action film.
I give thanks for the love I receive through God’s perfect channels now.
Monday, August 7
Moon is exalted in Taurus—meaning she’s at her best and supports pleasure and prosperity.
Today’s intelligent numerology of 7 gives the day a studious bent while Moon’s sextile to constructive Saturn brings opportunities in business, teaching, with an elder, or to build something.
Morning is particularly good for work. Do business, research about and review your investments, administer property, focus on stability, security, protection, and home affairs; reorganize practical concerns.
Afternoon and evening continue to support such efforts, though they can also be times to enjoy the good life.
I give thanks for the joy I have and I receive its increase, here and now.
Tuesday, August 8
At 3:28 am (6:28 ET), Moon reaches her Fourth Quarter. This influence accents Mercury in shadow retrograde, favoring consolidation of things we began previously.
Moon in Taurus connects with dynamic Mars and independent Uranus, sparking our nerve, increasing our drive, and favoring independent activities. We can intervene on behalf of a loved one or cause, declutter the garage or gym locker, enjoy sports, or take bold action in business or a creative project…
Today’s transits aren’t particularly diplomatic—that is, until 5:21 pm (8:21 ET), when Moon makes a square to ruler Venus, awakening sensuality and combining with the approaching square from planet of love to wild Uranus to favor an exciting night out or an innovative social or romantic encounter. We can also apply this energy to work on art, edit a commercial strategy, enjoy music, or create a handmade gift for someone dear.
Tomorrow’s wee-hour early transits increase romance, passion, creativity and spiritual powers. If we have the energy, they’re worth staying up for.
At 15-16 Taurus, the Sabian symbol for today’s lunations says:
AN OLD TEACHER FAILS TO INTEREST HIS PUPILS IN TRADITIONAL KNOWLEDGE. The inadequacy of past knowledge in time of crisis… the emergence of new developments… what is emphasized is change. Traditional concepts are not adequate to… the new conditions of existence… whenever this symbol comes to a seeker’s attention it indicates that even the most consecrated tradition does not have the real answer to the problem… From the Zen point of view the mind facing trouble should not depend on past concepts but should repeat: “Not this! Not that!” — until the pure Void is reached. We might speak here of the principle of CREATIVE FRUSTRATION.
Infinite Intelligence has a solution and brings it to light, here and now.
Wednesday, August 9
A day to connect with others, try something new, or promote a cause, a product or an idea.
Before leaving Taurus, Moon makes very early wee-hour harmonies to Neptune and Pluto. These extremely fertile influences can be applied to dream-work, spiritual healing, connecting with angels and spirit guides, and moving boldly to produce, promote, sell or invest. If we have someone to share them with, they are also sweet and sexy.
At 6:05 am (9:05 ET), Moon enters communicative Gemini. Morning is good for spiritual healing and for reviewing and consolidating innovative pathways in finances, business or relationships.
Connections bring excitement as social Venus squares electric Uranus and Mercury the messenger trines publicist Jupiter. These energies are idealistic, creative, and potentially quite favorable. Unexpected events may dazzle. Check ‘em out, but keep your feet on the ground and direct your inspiration in an existing project, situation or promotion of some sort, as Mercury is in retrograde shadow and the Moon is waning, in her Fourth Quarter.
I give thanks for the wave of new good that flows into my life, here and now.
Thursday, August 10
Today’s numerology of 1 lights up the communication skills of Moon in Gemini and the innovative instincts of the still active Venus-Uranus square, and we can make a breakthrough in communication.
A sextile from Moon to Sun brings confidence and opportunities for purposeful self-expression. Review a message, text or promotion you’ve shared or begun previously and share it again with courage.
Make people connections before 7:28 pm (10:28 ET), when Moon squares pushy Mars, placing stress on our social intelligence. After this we can watch sports, declutter the car, the glove compartment or our flatware, or soak in a hot tub and exfoliate our feet.
Late tonight, if we have someone to cuddle or text with, we can enjoy the sweet vibrations of a sextile from Moon to Venus in romantic Leo.
Divine love pours through my connections, and they flow in pure harmony, here and now.
Friday, August 11
Morning gives us a few hours for social, romantic and business connections, followed by some time for inner work. Later this afternoon, we can focus on family, home, spirituality, or again, business.
As the day begins, Moon is still sweet after her midnight kiss with Venus. In communicative Gemini, this influence brings opportunities for communication that are harmonious, warm, romantic, or lucrative. Reach out before 10:27 (1:27 pm ET), when Moon goes VOC on a square to psychic Neptune, followed by a minor connection to deep Pluto.
After this, put key actions and connections on hold; that is, except connections with angels, spirit guides, and your inner self. This mystical VOC blends with today’s intuitive numerology of 11, an influence that angels use to access our heart energy and lift the planetary frequency. Practice forgiveness, pray for the children, expand your love towards self, others and all sentient beings. Moon in Gemini spotlights word-centered practices such as journaling, self-dialogue, writing affirmations, and repeating mantras, invocations, and positive prayers.
At 3:52 pm (6:52 ET), Moon comes back online as she enters Cancer. We can cultivate our intuition, study metaphysics, focus on real estate, something related to home(s) or family, putter around the house, or attend to business activities or connections that we put in motion before August 3.
My words are not just ideas, they’re divine law in action that produces tangible outcomes now.
Saturday, August 12
Moon in nurturing Cancer trines organized Saturn, giving us the best of both worlds: sensitivity with discipline, expansion with structure, intuition with focus.
We can make headway with something we started before August 3, related to:
- Real estate
- Business follow-up
- Home repair
- Yard furniture
- Blessing the home
- Following up on commitments to family or to someone we have offered to help
- Organizing the kitchen or linen closet
Late tonight, a trine from Moon to generous Jupiter facilitates emotional connections and favors teaching, contacting angels and spirit guides, making a donation, promoting something, raising funds or campaigning for a cause.
I have strong intuitive guidance and I enjoy acting on it, now and always.
Sunday, August 13
Sun joins with sweet Venus, favoring people connections of all kinds. Moon makes three sextiles—to communicative Mercury, dynamic Mars and innovative Uranus—blending with the practical orientation of today’s number 4 to spark collaborative opportunities. Contacts tend to go well, but particularly those that build something for work, business, activism, culture, or another kind of joint effort.
I give thanks for my divine collaborators, those I know and those who are going to appear, here and now.
Monday, August 14
Moon leaves Cancer and enters Leo at 3:36 am (6:36 ET).
We’re on the portal of Wednesday’s New Moon, and the lion’s confidence combines with today’s brave numerology of 5 to increase our courage to move beyond our comfort zone.
Moon connects with Saturn, sending the lion’s fire in practical directions.
With this combination of brawn, creativity and discipline, we can:
- Develop our talents
- Work for recognition
- Follow up on an opportunity to shine our light
- Renew a lease
- Take control of a situation
- Gather images to make a vision board for Wednesday’s New Moon
- Put a touch of drama in our work
There’s a tendency with this combination to come on a bit strong. Be mindful of listening to and recognizing others.
I give thanks that I am equipped for and supported in my divine opportunities, now and always.
Tuesday, August 15
This is one of the best days of the month to renew our creative projects and relationships.
On the portal of a New Moon in warm, passionate Leo, today’s numerology of 6—ruled by Jupiter—radiates protection and supports abundance and cheerful connection. At 9:44 am (12:44 pm ET), Moon squares expansive, charming Jupiter. These are great influences for breathing new life into relationships of all kinds: brunching with friends or family, holding a business lunch, doing something fun with a partner, giving a class or a spiritual retreat, promoting our project or work.
Adding to the excitement is a square from Sun to Uranus, the rebel genius. Authenticity is in high demand: it’s important to feel our own and others’ evolving needs and to be open to try something different, something that breaks routine and allows for greater freedom for ourselves and/or others.
We can ask: How do the ways I’ve changed affect the connection with this (person, public, work of art)? What can I offer that’s fresh? Can I bring more authenticity? What would I like to try?
Since tomorrow’s New Moon is followed by a lengthy VOC, today is for writing down our intentions for the changes we’d like to make in how we apply our heart energy.
As you go about innovating, remember that freedom is a two-way street. As well as speaking, listen and be willing to consider external input.
Sample intentions for the Leo New Moon:
- I see myself being true to the new voice that emerges in me, now and always.
- I give thanks that divine substance gives form to a happy, appropriate romantic relationship, here and now.
- I allow myself to grow in confidence and self-love now.
- I call on the angels of love to expand my heart power definitively now.
- I see myself putting love into all I do, now and always.
- I am a fractal of the divine heart that radiates love to me and others through me now.
- I imagine myself at the peak of success with (name creative project).
Radiant Sarasvati, please work with opulent Lakshmi to support me financially as I focus on this (name creative work) until it’s consolidated now.
Wednesday, August 16
This is a great day to hold our own New Moon retreat, at least through early afternoon. Evening is great for direct, practical action.
At 2:38 am (5:38 ET), Moon goes void of course right as she turns new, and will be VOC for most of the day. This means that the first hours of the New Moon cycle aren’t so good for action, favoring inner work to assimilate the powerful energies triggered at this portal.
Ruled by Sun and conjunct retrograde Venus, this Leo New Moon supports a new experience of heart energy. Leo and Venus both relate to romance, socializing, warmth, opulence, and creativity.
In synchrony with the long VOC triggered by the New Moon, the Sabian symbol for this lunation spotlights inner work:
COMPLETE NEGLECT OF BODILY APPEARANCE AND CLEANLINESS… An interior focalization of energy and consciousness at the expense of all forms of outward activity and care… TOTAL CONCENTRATION.
Whereas Leo is often related to outer appearance, this symbol suggests that the new cycle we are beginning has less to do with outer actions and has more to do with our vibration or inner consciousness. However, the chart for this lunation is indeed quite active, featuring a trine with Mars and Uranus as part of a kite, an aspect that brings ease of action and opportunity and which we explore in our August General Influences in more detail. What the planetary influences make clear is that it’s time to go within and reaffirm our chosen use of our heart energy.
After 4:14 pm (7:14 ET), the stars support direct, constructive action. We can make progress in work, activism, healing, helping others. Moon enters diligent Virgo and in one of the month’s major aspects, dynamic Mars trines brilliant Uranus. This combination can find shortcuts and move forward in one fell swoop. A path that seemed blocked can suddenly clear. Simplify your strategy, do major decluttering, unload a draining investment, knock on a key door that you’ve approached before.
This combination can come off as demanding, so strive for diplomacy.
I am an agent of divine action, and I move on my instincts, here and now.
Thursday, August 17
A day for independent organizational activities.
This morning, the nerdy side of Moon in Virgo is accentuated by a wee-hour opposition from Moon to Saturn. We may feel a bit heavy or hemmed-in. Virgo supports healing, and an inner knot can be loosened by journaling or therapy.
Positive ways of directing this energy include:
- Putting the kitchen or home in order
- Reorganizing our garden or work
- Making a schedule for therapy
- Journaling about our emotions
- Making lists of needs, resources and intentions for emotional wellness
Today’s numerology of 8 combines with Mercury in shadow to support consolidation of material and professional efforts. We can also work on accounts, make a methodical review of communications, take stock, or complete an old project.
Virgo can be critical and exacting: avoid being hard on yourself and others.
A late trine from Moon to Jupiter softens the starwaves and favors people connections, promotional activities, expressing our feelings, and winning support.
My path is made of divine substance and it lifts me up in freedom, wellness and success, here and now.
Friday, August 18
For most of the day, the energies are great for teaching, inner work, spiritual or philosophic study. We can even make a breakthrough in our work or in healing.
Moon in Virgo conjoins ruler Mercury in pre-retrograde shadow, and trines brilliant Uranus. Our cognition is sharpened and—with today’s alchemical numerology of 9—especially effective for healing, teaching, and esoteric understanding. We can generate wellness, gratitude, transmutation or forgiveness, engage in joyful study, and generously share our knowledge.
Make people connections before 5:57 pm (8:57 ET), when Moon joins bellicose Mars, an energizing but potentially aggressive aspect. At this point, social intelligence gets blurred and independent activities go best. We might soak in a hot bath, wash the car, or clean the refrigerator or kitchen cabinets.
At 11:01 pm (1:01 am ET), Moon opposes psychic Neptune. We can call on angels and guides, visualize, meditate, pray, or program tonight’s dreams.
Invocation for angelic guidance in dreams:
Angels of wisdom, please reveal what I need to know in a clear, positive dream I remember on waking.
Saturday, August 19
At 1:51 am (4:51 ET), Moon goes VOC, entering sweet Libra at 4:53 am (7:53 ET). Libra Moon’s social skills combine with today’s assertive numerology of 1 to favor initiatives like those that follow:
- See friends
- Send your partner roses
- Take your flame out to dinner
- Work on something involving justice, compromise, teamwork or negotiation
- Review your bank statement
- Rearrange the furniture
I act to share the love that I am, here and now.
Sunday, August 20
Intuition and creativity abound, and afternoon is great for people connections. Sun in artistic Leo makes a quincunx to imaginative Neptune, awakening the muse and activating our intuitive perception.
At 11:19 am (2:19 pm ET), Moon connects with expansive Jupiter, lifting our spirits, facilitating harmonious connection, and favoring a gathering, spiritual activities, and connections with light beings.
Things get even sweeter this afternoon as Moon sextiles her ruler Venus, planet of love. This aspect favors all kind of connections: social, romantic, with women, for business. Show your affection or interest to someone who matters.
I give thanks that divine love manifests my best and highest network, here and now.
Monday, August 21
Creativity is high and we feel sociable, but this rather intense day favors independent or intimate transformation.
Moon in sweet Libra wants to connect, but Sun and Moon both make tensions to intense Pluto, and dark instincts may seem overwhelming, activating this Moon’s insecure side. Today’s numerology of 3, ruled by Venus, favors beautification and increases the deep creativity brought by today’s transits. Activities that combine these energies might be:
- Make bold and beautiful changes in our home or personal space
- Research the family tree
- Connect with ancestors
- Get a hormonal treatment or profile
- Look into and heal the shadows in our relationship habits
- Work on forgiveness
At 4:22 pm (7:22 ET), Moon enters potent Scorpio. The above list is still in effect, and we can add:
- Emotional healing
- An intimate encounter (in view of today’s Pluto tensions, choose someone harmonious)
- Making a tough decision
- Researching a change
- Solving a problem
I thank divine love that’s there’s solution for this situation and it’s appearing now.
Tuesday, August 22
Today’s influences are sexy, creative, hypnotic, angelic, and deserving of special care.
Moon in deep Scorpio combines with two transits that trigger cosmic portals. Assertive Mars opposes surrealistic Neptune, an influence that joins the world of action with the realm of mysteries. There’s a potential for undesirable outcomes in things related to liquor, men, wet highways, bars, and mysteries. Keep a low profile and avoid partying, driving on a wet roads, mixing machines with water, channeling, using mind-altering substances, an encounter with a mysterious stranger, walking or parking in a dark alley, public protests, or crowds. What does go well is creative work and consulting the angels or your intuition to plan your actions. Write down leads for future action, that is, after next weekend, when this opposition and an upcoming Mars-Pluto trine have calmed down a bit.
On an easier note, sweet, enriching Venus squares fortune-builder Jupiter. Any contact between these two most fortunate planets is quite promising, and the square fuels creativity and action. It’s a protective influence that fuels good will, precipitates opportunity, and can expand the benefits of our connections with others, including promotional activities, investments, and financial activities. With Mercury poised to go fully retrograde tomorrow, remember to focus on relationships and projects that were set in motion previously.
Neptune and Venus are both romantic, as is a nighttime square from Moon to Venus, while Mars and the Scorpio Moon are lustful. With the right partner, this could be a smoldering day. If you prefer, you could work on something creative or watch a romantic film. If you happen to be up late, use the late-night influences to focus on producing or promoting something.
Guardian Angel, please lift my perception to divine frequencies and hold it there, now and always.
Wednesday, August 23
At 2:01 am (5:01 ET), Sun enters Virgo. The focus shifts from fun and romance to work for progress.
Moon in bold Scorpio connects with Venus, Jupiter and ruler Mercury, making this morning great for communications, work, service, or romance of a traditional kind.
Schedule and make connections before 12:19 pm (3:19 ET), when Moon opposes rebellious Uranus, bringing emotions to light in a way that may be a hyper or antisocial. The rest of the afternoon is good for research, study, and decluttering our home or papers, books, and files.
At 7:33 pm (10:33 ET), Moon trines mystical Neptune, favoring spiritual work, empathy and romance.
At 10:10 pm (1:10 am ET), Moon goes VOC.
I am irresistibly attractive to my true love, who is drawn to me and comes to me, here and now.
Thursday, August 24
Strong Jupiterian influences combine with a Mars-Pluto trine to make this a day of strong, powerful action.
At 1:07 am (4:07 ET), Moon enters Sagittarius, ruled by Jupiter the guardian, lifting our spirits and favoring connections for negotiation, trade, diplomacy and creative activities.
At 2:57 am (5:57 ET), Moon reaches her Second Quarter. This is an excellent moment to review our progress on intentions from last week’s New Moon, and tweak our visualization and actions to support them.
At 2 degrees Sagittarius, the Sabian symbol for this lunation says:
WHITE-CAPPED WAVES DISPLAY THE POWER OF WIND OVER SEA. The mobilization of unconscious energies under the pressure of super-personal motives. Wind and sea are in constant interplay, and the results of that interplay are inspiring and beautiful. In symbolism, the wind (pneuma is the early Greek word for ‘spirit’) is associated with spiritual dynamism; the stirring of deep energies this dynamism obeys cosmic or super-personal rhythms, the power of which is irresistible… we have a picture which contrasts the powerful but beautiful storms of nature with the often gory and hysterical crises of a civilization which progresses through war.
The mention of war resonates with today’s trine from feisty Mars to intense Pluto, which increases courage for direct action. This assertive combination merits mindfulness and diplomacy, as of themselves, neither of these two planets is especially sensitive to the needs and feelings of others. Moon in Sagittarius activates our savvy, and we can apply it to avoid overwhelming others with our forcefulness. With Mercury retrograde, the following suggestions are best applied to things we had already put in motion before August 3.
The combination favors things like:
- Releasing doubts and inner blocks and reaffirm a decision for change
- Setting a clear limit
- Following through on a negotiation we had begun before
- Standing up for our rights or those of others (avoid direct physical confrontation)
- Taking a long-planned step to support our own progress, healing or power
Avoid being alone with a male stranger or in a situation of potential sexual or physical vulnerability.
I release familiar situations and open to the new good that rushes to me, here and now.
Friday, August 25
The first part of the day works for people connections, while afternoon and evening favor study and research.
Still on the portal of yesterday’s Mars-Pluto trine, Moon in slick Sagittarius connects with charmers Venus and Jupiter. We can make headway in key negotiations, get through to a contact, reactivate our love-life.
Contacts and connections go better before 3:43 pm (6:43 ET), when Moon squares Mercury, followed by a quincunx to Uranus. Luna’s tensions to the planets of lower and higher cognition are anti-social, but positive for independent, intellectual activity like study, writing, research, and tonight, for channeling.
I am made in the image and likeness of genius, and my faculties cannot be limited.
Saturday, August 26
This morning we can get organized to use this afternoon’s golden window for practical headway.
At 6:05 am (9:05 ET), Moon enters executive Capricorn and today’s numerology of 8 favors results in material and professional concerns. This is the last full day with Mars, planet of action, in practical Virgo, enriched by other influences that support tangible progress.
Morning is best for independent activities, to reconnect with goals, review our progress, and reorganize for practical action.
At 11:39 am (2:39 pm ET), Moon trines Sun in practical Virgo, followed by a sextile to ruler Saturn in Pisces, sign of dreams. These transits favor successful connections and fulfill today’s promise of tangible results of our audacious action in work, business, publicity or service.
All people and all situations are full of love for me and I am full of love for them. All people and all situations benefit me now.
Sunday, August 27
Today is great for connecting with people, particularly to build or restructure something.
At 6:20 am (9:20 ET), Mars leaves the firm terrain of Virgo to enter the gentle airs of Libra, and our focus shifts from practical movement to people-connections. On making the shift, the lord of action triggers the Aries point (zero degrees of a cardinal sign), energizing shared projects and negotiations.
Strict Saturn, ruler of Moon in Capricorn, opposes the Sun in practical Virgo, pressing us to build our personal authority. Moon connects with sweet Venus and harmonizes with expansive Jupiter, communicative Mercury and brilliant Uranus.
We can review our goals and connect with others in ways that build, serve, expand, publicize, and innovate.
Blessing for this week:
Angels go before us and we can only find good in all places and situations, today and throughout the week.
Monday, August 28
We reconnect with our updated identity and can act on its directives.
As Uranus, planet of freedom, stations to retrograde tonight, our search for freedom turns inward. We can stop projecting our nerve to be ourselves onto others, and assume our own latest tendencies. We can start this cycle by asking:
- How have my priorities changed?
- What habits, situations, or patterns have I fallen into that are not in resonance with where I am or where I want to go?
Moon goes VOC at 4:49 am (7:49 ET), entering individualistic Aquarius at 7:32 am (10:32 ET). Luna then moves on to connect with cosmic Neptune and deep Pluto, followed by aspects to confident Mars and Sun. Today’s numerology of 1 is a natural leader. These influences accent Moon’s strength in Aquarius to focus on individual preferences, goals and viewpoints.
We can try a new approach to an old or ongoing situation, fight for a cause, rearrange the furniture, make innovative changes in a creative endeavor, close a cycle, research a change we long to make, or find information we may have overlooked.
Angels and Spirit Guides, please support me to open to new ways of growing, here and now.
Tuesday, August 29
On the portal of tomorrow’s Full Moon in sweet Pisces, Moon aspects Venus and Jupiter, planets of charm, making morning great for seeing friends, doing PR, or connecting with the public.
The charm fades at 3:18 pm (6:18 ET), when Moon quincunxes Mercury the messenger, favoring independent mental or creative activities. At 8:04 pm (11:04 ET), Luna goes VOC.
Today’s numerology of 11 intensifies the power of our meditation and affirmations of compassion and love.
Goddess Kuan Yin, open the door of my heart so I may channel divine love into the world now.
Wednesday, August 30
Today’s Full Moon in Pisces is packed with the energy of work, courageous action, and magic.
At 6:56 am (9:56 ET), Moon leaves her VOC in Aquarius and enters sensitive Pisces. Morning is great for independent spiritual activities: dream interpretation, consulting guides and angels and visualizing how we want to use today’s Full Moon portal.
Outer actions go better after 12:33 pm (3:33 ET), when Moon emerges from a tension with Mars and moves to conjunct structured Saturn, exact at 6:36 pm (9:36 ET), with the strict planet demanding that we get realistic about our Piscean dreams.
Two recent aspects are still in orb: the trine from daring Mars to bold Pluto, fueling brave action, and the square from sweet Venus to charming Jupiter, expanding our power of attraction in relationships, love, publicity, business and finance. Along with Neptune, Jupiter co-rules this lunation, shielding us with protection.
The portal spotlights romance, while Saturn, Sun in Virgo, and Mercury retrograde all point to an existing, committed relationship. We could also consolidate a spiritual or intuitive business (Pisces Full Moon with Saturn), take the reins of our destiny (Mars-Pluto), relaunch of a publicity program or something related to compassion or women (Pisces, Jupiter-Venus), or a combination of these. Whatever we choose to focus on, Luna’s conjunction with Saturn stresses the power of focused effort.
I invite the angels of order to direct my inner and outer work, here and now.
Thursday, August 31
We can make people connections and use affirmations in resonance with what we want to consolidate in the areas that we mentioned for yesterday.
Still on the Full Moon portal, morning is great for people connections. Moon connects with Venus and at 7:25 am (10:25 ET), sextiles Jupiter, planet of fortune, precipitating several super hours for all things Jupiterian, Piscean and Taurian (that were set in motion before August 3), like:
- A promotion
- A business deal
- A party for empaths
- Spiritual teaching
- Teaching for money
- Advancing our dreams
- Making a musical or video production for spirituality, angels, culture, education, business or a worthy cause
- Getting paid
- A real estate deal
- Getting a permit or support from a high-up
- Political progress
- Promoting or campaigning for something
At 12:29 pm (3:29 ET), Moon opposes Mercury, and communications become more tense, although intuition awakens and we can do spiritual healing or connect with guides and angels.
The rest of the day is best for independent activities, especially for work, study, or intuition and, with an evening sextile from Moon to futuristic Uranus, research or following up on a progressive financial option.
Guardian Angel, please support me to shine my light unapologetically, now and always.
