What Is Truly Important To You? 


This week’s headline items: Venus, Jupiter, and Uranus are exalted (staining) all week; Uranus comes to a halt in Taurus to start its yearly Retrograde phase on Monday late evening; Venus’ Station phase intensifies on Tuesday; Mercury’s station ends on Tuesday (but the planet remains retrograde); the Full Moon in Pisces becomes exact late on Wednesday evening; Jupiter’s Station phase intensifies on Thursday; Venus comes to a halt in Leo late on Sunday evening, ending her 6-week Retrograde and beginning her post-Shadow phase.


There will be four Moon Void of Course (VoC) phases this week: Monday morning (for a little over 2.5 hours), Tuesday late evening (for almost 11 hours), Friday morning (for almost 3 hours), and Sunday morning (for 3 hours).


Before we get to this week’s Forecast, a last reminder…

We are getting ready to re-evaluate old beliefs and perspectives or attitudes, as well as our cultural conditioning. Jupiter’s Retrograde phase begins on Sept. 4th (until Dec. 30th), and this will focus on our finances and ability to create abundance and see ourselves as worthy.

On Friday this week, you will get a chance to take a look at your own birth chart to see how this might impact you personally. You can also ask a question in connection with this planetary movement in advance. Once registered, you can email me between now and Sept. 1st at 3pm EDT! I will answer questions in the order they were received.

Now, this week’s Forecast…


Monday, August 28th:

Monday, the Moon remains in ambitious, goal-oriented Capricorn until 10:32am EDT. We tend to be more realistic, serious, and cautious; this can support practical endeavors and financial matters.

Monday at 7:49am EDT, we enter a Moon VoC that will last for a little over 2.5 hours until 10:32am EDT. Use this intuitive time to focus on long-term successes. You might get a little obsessed with a project or task — as best as you can, take breaks, and don’t forget to practice a little self-care.

As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don’t start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Monday morning ahead of time.

Monday at 10:32am EDT, the Moon moves into freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius, where it will journey until Wednesday late morning. The energy of the Aquarian Moon relates to our instinct for improvement. Reactions are more intellectual than emotional, and interactions are more impersonal than personal. We are likely to have an increased fascination with the new and unusual.

Social gatherings, anything connected with group ideals and goals for the future, brainstorming, new ideas, innovative methods, and progress are promoted while the Moon moves through Aquarius. Again: we have our eyes on the future — or outer space… Personal freedom becomes paramount.

Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius — and this planet is currently moving through Taurus, making these next two days a great time to look at our physical connection to our own body, finances, and whatever is most important to us on this planet.

It’s also a great time to innovate and make changes in our lives around any physical matters that no longer serve us or keep us stuck in the past; we need to elevate our thinking if we want our bodies and the planet to vibrate at a higher frequency.

Ask yourself: Do I need to give my body something different to raise it to a higher vibration? When I tune in to myself, what insights does my body provide?

Where have I become too rigid in connection with my body, my physical resources, or my talents? Where have I become too comfortable with those things? What is my connection to the Earth? To Nature? Do I need more physical space? More physical movement?

Monday at 10:39pm EDT, Uranus comes to a halt at 23 degrees of Taurus, starting its yearly 5-month Retrograde phase until January 27th, 2024. During the Uranus Retrograde phase, we are invited to access the Uranus energy from within.

Our intuitions will be very strong during this time, and we have access to sudden insights and ideas. This aspect gives us the opportunity to take a look to see how free we actually feel.

As best as you can, take a look at whatever inside has been blocking your sense of freedom: Are you expressing your individuality to the fullest? Are you connecting to a larger vision?

Remember, doing the inner work is just as important as making progress in the outer world — the “Inner Universe” informs the outer — one cannot happen without the other  

We have five months to take a look inside at whatever has been thwarting our progress. Ask yourself: Where are inner roadblocks popping up? Could I give myself some introspective time to receive some practical insights and ideas to help me go around those roadblocks and journey into the next phase of my life?

Some of us will feel the effects of the Retrograde phase more than others. This is particularly true if you have personal planets in 17-25 degrees of Taurus, Scorpio, Aquarius, or Leo — and if you have Aquarius as your Sun- or Rising-Sign. For you in particular, this is a great time to reevaluate future visions — and perhaps to reexamine any group causes that you want to be a part of.
