This Week Aug 22 – 28
We are in the waning Leo lunar phase. The 29 day cycle that launched on July 28 is now on its final days before the Virgo New Moon kicks off next week.
We still have a few more days to find our Leo strength, power and tap what stirs up our heart.
On Monday we are still in the last quarter moon which began on 8/18.
Last Quarter moon: Now we do the final adjustments to the seeds we planted on new. The final call, the final letters to send, we follow all the trails that came up that still make sense. And we let the other parts lay fallow. It is a time of action but wise action. It is a time for living “The serenity prayer”
God, grant me the Serenity
to accept the things
I cannot change Courage to change the
things I can, and the
Wisdom to know the difference.
What actions are you taking that are grounded in practicality? What actions are you taking that reinforce building something from the ground up?
8/22: Mercury trine Pluto. Powerful thinking and communication.
8/22: Sun enters Virgo
On the 23rd we shed for three days during the balsamic phase. While we shed, there is tension caused by Venus and Sun square Mars.
Then, on the 24th Uranus begins it’s annual retrograde where it heads for tussle with Saturn.
Balsamic Moon Phase
August 23, 2022
Balsamic: We let go. By releasing we can prepare for the new.
Focus on How are you releasing your emotions? How are you releasing family? How are you releasing childhood?
8/24: Uranus station retrograde 18 Taurus 55 (see separate post)
8/24: Venus trine Chiron. Values in sync with healing actions
8/25: Venus square North node. Values smacked down by rigidity. Practicality pushes back on values.
8/25: Mercury enters Libra
8/26: Venus square Uranus. Values challenged by dynamic changes.
8/26: Sun square Mars. Explosive tension. Drama not helpful.
