The sun sparkles from sidereal Leo, autumn gold and low in the heavens, while the moon shoots through true blue Sagittarius. We are ready to rock!
We have dreams of fits and starts, sudden inspirations which crash landed on the ground. As a result, our morning endeavors are a bit over cautious, and while we are enthused about our day, we are a bit slow in reacting. It's not just a slow Tuesday! It's August!
By 3 52 PM Pacific, 6 52 PM eastern time, we run into friends and associates who are really running behind! We see how blessed we really are!
Later tonight, 9 29 PM Pacific, 12 29 AM eastern time Wednesday morning, we are wise to go over our musings... we will find hidden jewels!
Wednesday is supercharged and thrice charmed!!!
about home, mom, happy endings, early tales, recipes, decor ideas, landscaping, mining, and seaside stays accompanies our orb of communication through comforting, comfortable Cancer. Now retreading through Cancer, we have the opportunity to put into action all that we have reconsidered over the past month. Time to move!
All Scrub and Starch!
Romance, profit, and jewelry are out of the question now as the golden girl of the cosmos sloops through silvery, prissy, scientific Virgo. We are wise to apply all our energy and focus on our profession and career, where we will be valued and excell!
Later this year, October through midmonth November, Venus will retrograde through sidereal Libra, where she rules from her autumn home. This is a splendid window to seek out forms of social grace, etiquette, civil exchange!!
Mars is whirling backwards in organized, forward-thinking Capricorn now till August 27th. Powerfully certain of himself, Mars exalts in Capricorn now, filling us with that same surety. What we do now, when it comes to family, job, profession, or governance, can really come undone! This is a time for try-outs, temps, and too slow!
is under the watchful Eye of mighty, benevolent Jupiter, the king of planets. Jupiter is at his jovial, genial best in sweet Libra where we are sure to assimilate the most graceful of social trends. Uplifting, elegant, refined, sweetly harmonious and charming!
Maybe this isn't the time to go back to school...
Saturn blocks his blocks now, turning around and changing his mind on important issues. Let's not get giddy when it comes to the law, the Law, travel, school, scheduling, or journeys near or far having to do with our religious views.
Saturn is making a twist about in Sagittarius, turning our travel plans into a melee... on again and off again meetings, important in nature and scope, can frustrate us and we feel it most when it comes to dealing with the legal details.
The old problem of school credits and transcripts pop up now, as the dour schoolteacher of the cosmos plays with his own ideas about Time.
At his best, Saturn can steady all the wild sky horses with sober calm, turning their tricks into reigns to guide our own inner drives with a more mature hand. We have until September to really study the laws by which we live and measure them against the Laws by which we really live. If there is a discrepancy, now is the time to address such issues. Schooling and study itself will come under scrutiny and some fire. Test the tester!! We will find travel restrictions are nothing new and permanently askew now, as we need to seriously consider the need for borders.
Saturn is all about form, walls, and watching. We will discover this in 2018!
All the fuss is about just that, fuss.
Uranus, the cosmic hand grenade, blasts through Aries, the sign of All or Nothing At All. Our sudden impulses and tracks seem so intense!! As spring launches itself upon us, he will explode through the Spring Lamb like a soccer match on steroids. Sports, military maneuvers, policing issues and leadership opportunities seem to materialize out of the air, and demand immediate action. Let's be ready to think on our feet, Star Travelers! This can be a fun time full of exploration, innovation, experimentation.
Fussy and fuzzy too!
Our faculties of Inspiration are under the bluegreen mists of Neptune, the orb of idealismand music, as it buoys through Aquarius, the sign of ideas, brotherhood, idealism, and innovation. This inspires delightful forms and colors for a future that is more out of this world than of it.
Currently retrograde till November 24th, we find our minds crystal clear, our reasoningability a bit cold. A perfect window for studying without passion or prejudice, the most confusing and complicated of issues.
Pluto, the fateful, fitful energy orb which can open our eyes to what is really there in front of us cruises in the sign of true blue Sagittarius. Our core beliefs about religion, the law, The Law, education, and foreign affairs will be challenged, turned upside down and inside out, and we are wise to move through slowly to examine our own innards to see what is really going on there. Sagittarius is the great Truth Seeker. Let's not disappoint Him! With courage, dignity, and grace, we can refine and now redefine who and what we are, in our inner reality. As Pluto next visits the sign of government, dads everywhere, the corporate culture, we can emerge much more sure of ourselves and our beliefs and principles by engaging with Fate now!
Pluto will engage with the sun and with Venus on the 9 th of January 2018 in a powerful embrace which is bound to change feelings, values, and core beliefs, bringing to the surface all that is rotten and obstructive to be lanced, cleansed, purified, and healed. This may be a painful process but not likely violent, especially if we do not fight it, but go with the tides of heaven.
Jupiter is retrograde till just after the 4th of July, awakening old memories and reconnecting us with old times. On the 10th we lurch forward!
Saturn blocks his blocks now, turning around and changing his mind on important issues. Let's not get giddy when it comes to the law, the Law, travel, school, scheduling, or journeys near or far having to do with our religious views. Saturn will go direct on September 6th.
Pluto is also retrograde, keeping the demons in the dark, safely away from us till September 30th.
The planette which keeps watch on the home fires, Vesta, fires in Scorpio!! Whew! And I don't just mean soup!
Our spousal planette Juno bops through platonic Aquarius, full of cool connections. Juno is almost never happy when alone, or when committed.
can be fixed if we want to take the time to go back and work on our inner emotional issues. With the planette Chiron, our Wounded Healer, retrograde in Pisces now, real success is possible when using color, theater, drama, or past life therapy.
Our social interchange
Pallas, the planettary BFF and sister in arms, jumps the hoop in Aries big time! She uses this as a launch pad for making new friends and annoying old ones.
The planette Ceres, the cook of the solar system, resets everything at Home in Cancer, where she reconfigures, revitalizes, revisualizes, and revamps our kitchen, redecorates, and invites the whole neighborhood to her board.
This marks the ninth complete lunation for this year.
