The New Moon in Leo is still in effect until 11:50pm EDT on Monday.
So, you have all Monday to get your Joy/Pleasure/Fun/Truth/--Heart on.
Even if you only do it for one minute, please plant a seed where you commit to joy/fun something. I don't care, go on line and look up jokes. Do something that tells your heart and the universe that you want a full vibrant life.
Additionally on 8/20 we have an aspect between the Sun and Mars which speaks to focused actions that are close to the heart. They can be successful actions. If you have to make swift cuts they will energize you. How you relate to others will be in harmony with the truth inside you.
Then after 11:50pm EDT we move into Crescent Moon.
Crescent: We will receive information, we will research a bit more, perhaps get feedback on stuff that we planted on new. Perhaps get some information that will help down the road on a seed we planted a while ago. We can collect some data now. Even if you think you are not getting information, stop, and re-look at everything. Who called you? Even the silliest things, when they come up during Crescent are note worthy. A parking ticket? An argument with a spouse? A refund check from the phone company? All of it needs to be considered a message from the universe. How can this information help you?
Focus on: What information are you learning about relationships? What are you learning about balance? Where is the light side? Where is the shadow? What are your partners telling you? Even if you are not in a ‘relationship’ you are in relationships what are learning? How does all of this speak to your creativity and self esteem?
8/22: Mercury/Jupiter: Expansive thoughts, benefits through things that are ‘foreign’ as defined being out of your normal world.
8/22: Sun moves into Virgo
8/23: Mars in Scorpio
First Quarter Moon
August 24 9:53am
First quarter: We do more actions based on the information that we just received. Or we feel our instincts guide us on something. We pursue again. We make another call or we see someone. We mail something. We stir the pot again. This can be a time when we realize that the goals we planted on New need more action from us, perhaps actions that involve breaking away. Are there people who say they have our best interest in heart but fear us growing away from them? Maybe we need to get help from others not the usual suspects. Some independence may need to be exerted.
Focus on: What actions are you taking that bridge you to others? How are you stretching and getting out of your close circles? How can you move that brings in things that are ‘foreign’? How do your philosophies and opinions line up with your self esteem? Do your opinions match up to your integrity? Is there hypocrisy?
8/23: Sun/Neptune: Hard to focus on daily life, bigger stuff feels unworldly. Illusions, depression, crazy are distracting. Prayer helps soften.
8/26: Mars/Neptune: Actions that are based on spirituality and humanitarian love are pronounced.
I would say that there are some nice aspects this week but at the same time it is a bit wonky and we need to remember to laugh. It will help us out.
