Friday, August 16 — The Full Moon took place yesterday. There’s still some emotional energy felt, which will be tapering off tonight. Mercury in Leo is in a challenging aspect with Uranus in Taurus. This aspect has been with us since Wednesday and has sped up your mind and nervous system. Its influence ends at 6 p.m. Jupiter and Saturn are in a favorable aspect now, until August 31, which finds our economy improving. Your intuition is sharp between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. while the Moon in Pisces nicely aspects Uranus in Taurus.

Saturday, August 17 — Your psychic awareness is strong, causing you to feel super sensitive if you are a Pisces. That is because the Moon is conjunct Neptune in Pisces today, from 10 a.m. until noon. Between 4:30 and 6:30 p.m. the Moon will nicely aspect Pluto, bringing about honest evaluations of events that have been baffling you. Jupiter continues to be in a favorable aspect to Saturn.

Sunday, August 18 — The Moon is gliding through Aries as of 12:33 p.m. and until just after midnight Tuesday. With the Moon in Aries you will tend to be impulsive, decisive and spunky. Mars enters Virgo at 1:19 a.m., until October 4. This position helps with organizing and getting rid of things you don’t really need. It’s also great for mechanics who have to get their hands and fingers in contorted positions to fix our cars/trucks. Those who are involved with editing and proofreading will find that they have even more patience and concentration during this phase. The one thing to be aware of with Mars in Virgo is not to be overly self-critical. Avoid the negative thoughts that seek to invade your mind.

Monday, August 19 — From 9:45 until 11:45 a.m. the Moon will be aspecting Mercury nicely. You want to feel understood by expressing your thoughts completely. This could be a bit much for those listening. From 4 until 6 p.m. the Moon aspecting Saturn is creating unnecessary criticism of yourself and someone you care about. Be aware of the words you choose. Also from 4 until 6 p.m. the Moon in Aries is going to be in a positive aspect to Jupiter still in Sagittarius (until December). This aspect brings about optimism, confidence and courage. Thus we have complex emotions going on that may contradict and nullify each other, which can cause tension. Seek to choose optimism, rather than criticism.

Tuesday, August 20 — Mercury is aspecting both Jupiter and Saturn. It’s a perfect time for writing and getting clarity by seeing your innermost thoughts on paper. Worrisome thoughts that may be flooding your mind from 5 until 7 a.m. could be eliminated by the aspects taking place between Mercury and Jupiter and Saturn, which last until tomorrow. All is well between 6 and 8 p.m. while the Sun in Leo is in a positive aspect with the Moon in Aries.

Wednesday, August 21 — Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn end their relationship (aspect) by noon. Mercury forms a challenging aspect with Neptune and Saturn until Thursday.

Confusion sets in, reminding you not to make any important decisions. Wait; do more research. Venus enters Virgo at 5:07 a.m., until September 14. Be frugal and practical, saving for the future. Venus while in Virgo is cautious and thrifty. From 11:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. the Moon will be conjunct Uranus in Taurus. Trust intuition. It is leading you to inspired creations and clever ideas. Venus is conjunct Mars, both in Virgo. This could be a very romantic phase for those who were born April 20 to 27, August 20 to 27 or December 22 to 28, of any year. The rest of us will enjoy the relaxation and creativity this particular conjunction brings.

Thursday, August 22 — Venus and Mars stay in conjunction in Virgo until Saturday. Jupiter and Saturn remain in a favorable aspect, increasing our economy until August 31. Mercury remains in a mentally confusing aspect with Neptune in Pisces until midnight. The Sun leaves Leo tomorrow. The Sun will enter Virgo Friday at 6:02 a.m., until September 23. Start to think about the new routines you will be creating.
