Weekly Weather August 17, 2015

And then there are weeks like this!   Saturn is simply EVERY WHERE as he wraps up the week receiving a square from the Sun in Leo. Saturn is rolling through our life wrapping up things ~ especially in our Scorpio house! Sun forms a T-square with Saturn and Admetos ending, ending, ending. Lots of endings. Sun’s last hard aspect with Saturn in Scorpio until 2042 puts our choices in stark relief and contrast. We either have figured it out or we haven’t. We find out this week! We’ve either evolved or we haven’t. We find out this week! Sun enters Virgo on Sunday starting a new 30 days of tasks, to-dos and organization.

Where were you transformed into a new life? The Scorpio house is the psychological issues we create in our own psyches from our parents’ and society’s teachings. What psychological issues have you been grappling with the past two and a half years? What is the space of your soul’s growth? What have you outgrown? What emotional swamps have you spent two years of your life swimming through? Get clear on all these questions. And love the unresolved spaces.

Big death, break up and leaving aspects as the Sun comes to square Saturn for the last time until 2042. So long, farewell, adieu! Say goodbye and tell them you love them! We will dissolve partnerships that seemed very solid, stable and reliable to the outside world.  Let go gracefully. Bless them. Thank them. Move on.

Mercury is FLYING through Virgo, moving quickly at close to 2 degrees a day. He is setting up a to-do list for you that is quite large. Time to move forward with your life as Mercury has your tasks outlined. Last week he squabbled with Uranus bringing forward a situation you need to take steps to handle. Then He squabbled with Eris bringing forward a situation involving jealousy or envy that you need to address quickly. Finally, he opposed Neptune as well as contra-parralleled it, saying “Okay, so maybe the old dream didn’t happen quite the way you wanted it to happen. That was then. This is now. What is your NEW dream?” Watch for disillusionment or disappointment too ~ however you have clarity. Clarity is worth millions of dollars! It doesn’t mean the dream was wrong, it was just hooked onto a person or situation that brought you THIS far. Now you need to focus your dream on where it is going next. Mercury’s square to Pallas helps you envision the future of your adjusted dream. Surprise announcements last Saturday as Uranus and Mercury brought news or information you didn’t expect while the trine to Pluto grounds, strengthens and outlines your next steps. This week, Mercury connects with Juno inviting partnerships and unions as well as long term commitments. Give it up for the vision of where you want to go. Sign up for the deal or relationship or commit to the offer on Wednesday August 19, even if you are not 100% sure. There will be time for revision down the road a bit. And yes, it may be controversial but that is okay too. Mercury’s inconjunct to Uranus offers you the opportunity to go your own way. And isn’t that what it is all about anyway? Living your best life? Mercury’s aspect to Eris over the weekend invites some jealousy your way. Feel the jealousy and use it to inspire yourself. If you are the recipient of jealousy or envy, you must be doing SOMETHING right! Laugh at it.

Venus retrogrades back into a second trine with Uranus and inconjunct to Chiron on Wednesday. Sometimes the old way just doesn’t work anymore. Now is one of those times. As Venus moves to partner with Pluto, you will be asked to stand in the clarity of your power and go forward. Time for your own ~ Venus joins with Uranus by declination. Time to reinvent or reboot yourself yet again. Or perhaps better said, time to jettison the old chapter and initiate the new paradigm or reality. Venus clears her shadow on October 9, 2015 and enters Virgo again.  Venus continues to unite with the freedom impulse as she works with Uranus. Expect shocks, excitement, financial reversals, changes, shifts and money action around the areas in your chart ruled by the Goddess of Love (Taurus and Libra houses).

Last week, Venus retrograde met up with the Sun and formed a Venus Star Point ™ at 22 Leo initiating a new 8 year cycle in your Leo house. Take time this week (if you didn’t do it last week) to sit down with Venus and the Sun. Light a candle. Meditate. Muse. Remember. Go forward. Write down what you want to bring or create in your life in your Leo house. The Leo house is where we are supposed to shine in the world. Our hearts are asking us to make a heart choice.  When you ARE clear, chose from depths of your heart towards the path with the most love for yourself and the others involved. It can be a hard choice because your heart choice may go counter to what the world wants or asks you to do.  Notice that it is the choice of your soul.  Honor your soul. You are ABOUT to start a new 8 year heart cycle with Venus and Sun. Evaluate the last 8 years of your heart’s path ~ think back to the previous Augusts of 2007, 1999, 1991, 1983, 1975, and 1967 to see your heart path of Venus in Leo unfolding across your life!

Mars in Leo aspects Neptune on Saturday, wrapping up the bits and pieces of the Story and dream. Mars is in the clean-up position in the sky, coming along after all the other planets have marched through Leo. He’s gathering the missing mitten, noticing the package tucked by the chair and calling out to the planets getting ready to leave Leo. Mars reminds them of what they need to take to the next chapter. And suggests what they might leave behind. The other planets had a bit of a party in Leo and Mars, late to the game, is acting on the decisions made by the others. He is getting the vision clear. When he goes into Virgo on September 24, watch out world. In the meantime, take a few more moments to play, have fun and enjoy the last bits and moments of Summer.

Jupiter and Uranus both wrap up outstanding relationship issues. Jupiter clears the table on Monday and announces who he is going to partner with and who he is NOT playing with going forward. Uranus, perhaps a bit blindsided, notices the envy and jealousy but continues forward anyway. Uranus then adjusts his approach to take the “LONG” view and go for HIS vision even if relationships have to change.

Void Moons in the Week Ahead:  When the Moon is Void, it is wise to avoid making important decisions as they tend to be unrealistic, and subject to false starts, errors or unexpected hassles.  Avoid being concerned with things beyond your spiritual center.  It is time for subjective, spiritual and non-materialistic concerns.  Kick back, let life flow, and center yourself.  Connect into your essential oneness with the Universal Forces.

Moon is in Virgo.

Moon day Monday August 17, 2015 at Moon is in Virgo. Moon goes void sextile to Saturn at 01:17:20 pm EDT.   Moon Enters Libra at 04:23:37 pm EDT. A busy day, Virgo Moon accomplishes quite a bit. Libra Moon engenders relationship questions and brings partnership issues to the forefront of everyone’s mind. Work productively with challenges and changes. Dreams last night were turbulent but partnerships are encouraged. Speak to others about partnerships and relationships dreams. Jupiter’s aspect to the Nodes points out where connections can be made or where they should be severed. Mercury offers you a serious, long term partnership you should say yes to! It will help pour the foundation of your future. Go for it!

Mars’s day Tuesday August 18, 2015 Moon is in Libra and goes void sextile to Sun. A productive and happy day, Moon gets quite a bit accomplished. Today is very much a day to lay back and enjoy yourself. Dreams were full of interesting stories last night…don’t be afraid! Jealousy rears its ugly head as you get news that means you definitely irritated someone. Time for a new story!! Sun’s aspect to the South Node invites you to see the truth of what is going on. It IS PERSONAL but do you really care? Sure a part of you does care but truth be told ~ aren’t you kind of over it? Honestly? Look at the part that still cares and talk to it. Stand in your heart’s clarity and choose that path. No more sacrificing yourself to be subservient to some idiot. You are done. Chiron’s aspect to the Nodes encourages you to play a LONG GAME. No cutting off your options. But start to move out and on.

Wednesday Mercury’s day August 19, 2015 Moon is in Libra and goes void sextile to Sun at 10:57:33 pm EDT. Today rocks and rolls. Mercury signs on the dotted line and commits to a new relationship, partnership, or life. Take all health matters seriously and get attention for them as weird things can happen suddenly. This week is chock full of people taking off as the Sun squares Saturn and Admetos, snuffing out life force. Venus’ trine to Uranus, part two retrograde, offers us an opportunity to redo something we’ve been meaning to get to. Get to it. Get it off your desk and out the door! Great day to push the projects along. It might cost something but take the risk and do it anyway. Time to leave home! Time to let the old go! You are done with it!

Jupiter’s Day Thursday August 20, 2015 Moon is void in Libra. Moon Enters Scorpio at 05:25:15 am EDT. Moon goes void square to Sun meaning the next three days are completely crazy and critical as the Moon and Saturn unite in Scorpio to receive a square from the Sun and Admetos… the end, end, end of Saturn in Scorpio is upon us. Today, Friday and Saturday are the Final Exams for Saturn in Scorpio! Get your test brain on! Dreams are full of tossing and turning as you realize in some profound way you are on your own. You can’t go home again. Whatever WAS home isn’t any more. Mercury and Chiron open up old wounds and ask you to lick them once more. This is DEEP PROCESS internally. Mercury forms a health aspect to Uranus as well as an adjusting one. We have to adjust. That is how we know we passed. No more subservient for the sake of the relationship. Step on health matters with a firm foot to the gas pedal and GO TO THE DOCTOR ~ these are departing aspects so don’t take anything health wise for granted.

Venus’ Day Friday August 21, 2015 Moon is in Scorpio and goes void square to Sun. Today is the Final exam! Sun squares Saturn, Moon and Admetos. Sun’s light in Leo is the brightest it can be! Here in the Northern Hemisphere, we are at the warmest time. It challenges the darkness of Saturn in Scorpio’s swamp and THE SUN WINS!!! THE SUN IS BIGGER, BRIGHTER AND BOLDER THAN SATURN. SATURN REVOLVES AROUND THE SUN, not the other way around. Let your sun shine in! Allow the last few years of Saturn rolling through the swamp of your life to go. You can just let them go. Yes, it is that easy. The Sun is shining in. Or it wants to. Venus works with Pluto to invite a different vision of what is possible in your life. Why can’t that happen? Move toward it with an open heart. Open up your heart and let the sun shine in. Venus works with Uranus and breaks free of her restrictions (part two). Sun’s sesquiquadrate to Pluto invites a letting go energy. Mercury’s aspect to Eris can be envy filled or tired of dealing with the envy and difficulties. Take action in the direction of your stress. Move to clear it and release it. There is very serious ending energy today ~ ending 2 ½ years, 29 years or maybe even your life… time to move towards the light! Let it go. Let it go. Let it go. Hands off. Let go. Back away. Move towards your life and your light!

Saturn’s Day Saturday August 22, 2015 Moon in Scorpio goes void square to Sun at 03:32:08 pm EDT. Moon Enters Sagittarius at 04:42:09 pm EDT and goes void square to Mercury. Still processing the energy of yesterday, we move through some tough aspects this morning as dreams are full of images, promises and change. Mars and Neptune invite you to understand the stories in your life are reflections of what you need to see to grow up and get clear. Don’t like what you see, ask yourself what is the lesson here. Probably revolves around don’t try to teach a pig to sing. It annoys both you and the pig. Adjust your actions accordingly. Teach yourself to sing. Then if the pig wants to learn to sing, they can. Stop forcing, pushing, nagging, yelling and niggling. It is NOT their job to make you happy. It is YOUR job to make you happy. And that involves you changing the stuff, situations, people or stories in your life so you are happy. Don’t like it? Change it. No asking the other person to change it. A harsh day on earth probably full of tears! Tears help us release what we no longer need to hold in our bodies. Our relationships both heal and wound us… sometimes at the same time. Allow your vision to expand (I know, it is hard right now) to include what could be instead of what is. Allow the possibilities to dance in your heart and your head. Sun’s square to Admetos invites an firm, complete and final ending. Things, people and situations will be passing out of your life. Time for them to go. Uranus and Juno ask you to take a new approach to partnership or relationship. You are ready now. No more sacrificing yourself where you need to be or want to be strong.

Sun’s Day Sunday August 23, 2015 Moon is in Sagittarius and goes void square to Mercury. Dreams are full of images and ideas. Make sure to write them down upon awakening. The universe is presenting you with a new way of nurturing yourself. Pay attention! Sun enters Virgo for 30 days at 06:37:15 am EDT marking the beginning of the end of summer. (sadness). Actually the end of many things. Sun will quickly catch up to Jupiter in Virgo but the shift has taken place. Sun’s last square to Saturn in Scorpio yesterday marked the official illumination end of Saturn’s 2 ½ year journey. We are done now. Time to clean up and move on. Vesta’s trine to Pallas presents us with a new option for seeing how the world works, how the patterns unfold, how the life takes shape. Perhaps the hardest thing to recognize is how our beliefs about what we are or deserve shape what we have. Look at your beliefs today. Spend time with them in a dialog about your life, lovability and where you want to go next. It is your journey after all. Our vision of what we can have is so critical and important. It drives what is possible for us. Sun’s union with Jupiter today at 04:45:34 pm EDT can either be very, very good or very, very bad. Your call entirely. If it is very, very bad, take time to flip it into another perspective. It all is in the story you tell yourself. Change your story, change your life.
