Astrology This Week
The moon will get into tangles with Mars, Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn when it is in cardinal signs. We can feel ourselves pulled into the energy. Try to use it to accomplish stuff versus scuffles. Unless someone needs to see you bare teeth. Then show your fangs.
This week the 2-day window is Moon in Libra. Note if you get into any sparks. It will have a lot to do with finding balance and relationships.
8/21 Moon enters Libra 2:15am PDT
8/23 Moon exits 3:15am PDT
We also move into the crescent phase on the 22nd where we are getting information about our ability to relate and our partnerships and how we find balance. What does it mean to be large, be true, be bold and maintain relationships?
Sun moves into Virgo on the 22nd. Time to share a little love to our hard- working Virgo friends and family. They benefit by a little cozy time and attention. Give them a call.
Mars gets into it with Saturn on the 24th. Mars in Aries is Fire and Saturn in Capricorn is ice. Anger and lack are at odds with each other. Where we see problems will need our energy. Great time on a personal level to fix something that has been on your To-Do list that needs a lot of energy. Those who see lack will be angry. Those who seem too angry could be frozen and can’t get out of their own way. Being too cynical is misguided and lose opportunities. Driving with one foot on the gas and one foot on the brake is not particularly productive. Instead balance between go go go and pause to assess the timing. This tension will be palpable between now and September 9 when Mars stations retrograde. Take note if you are productive or just playing with matches. Which one serves you?
Back end of the week we move into 1st quarter moon where we check in with our philosophies and beliefs. Are they serving us?
Venus tangles up with Jupiter on the 25th. Love and money can feel big and generous or stretched. Values are being expanded and assessed.
Crescent Moon Phase
August 22, 2020
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 your relationships. What are you learning about partnerships? What are you learning joy and play and relationships? What are you learning about strength? What are you learning about creativity and the importance of it your relationships? How is creativity, joy, strength informing your need for balance?
8/22: Sun enters Virgo. Happy Birthday dear Virgos.
8/24: 11:19am PDT Mars square Saturn. (see Mars, Mars, Mars link)
8/25: Mercury trine Uranus. Practical solutions and dynamic ideas are pronounced. Thinking of ‘weird’ thoughts could later be helpful in building something up from the ground.
8/25: Venus oppose Jupiter: Money feels big and stretched at the same time. Values are informed by big ideas and things that are ‘foreign”. Big Values and Big Government connect with family/home.
First Quarter Moon
August 25, 2020
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 speak to bridging with things that are ‘foreign’? What actions are you taking that speak knowledge and education? What actions are you taking that speak to your beliefs? How is all of this informed by creativity and joy and play? How is theatrics pushing you to act on something?
8/27: Venus trine Neptune. Love of loved ones and humanity is highlighted. Values, love and money speak to the spiritual side. Faith finds values and visa versa. Family and humanity are joined.
