Now, this week’s Forecast…

Monday, August 8th:

Monday, the Moon remains in optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius until 2:39pm EDT; with this placement, we’re strongly motivated to explore and learn. We’re not likely to be big fans of routine — diversity and new adventures work best at this time — we’re also physically restless and need to burn that off with activity and physical exercise.

We tend to feel more open, optimistic, and inspired — but we also have a high degree of independence — and taking these two influences together, means we’d rather inspire others to do things our way, as opposed to issuing or obeying orders. Inspiring others could come easier than normal, as we can see the bigger picture, leaving us confident that others will agree with us, once they see what we see.

As best as you can, speak your truth without assuming that everyone is on the same page as you. Improvisation works well for us at this time, as we are spontaneous and love living on the edge — just watch out you aren’t overdoing or overstating things.

Monday morning, at 6:30am EDT, we enter a Moon VoC that lasts for a little over 8 hours until 2:39pm EDT. As best you can, honor both your need for adventure and exploration of life and your need to go within and get quiet. You may also feel a pull between introvert and extrovert, or simply fast and slow.

Tune in for a moment and see if you need to take a break or at least slow down a little. As best as you can, be compassionate and kind to yourself.

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 ahead for Monday morning until the afternoon.

Monday afternoon, at 2:39 pm EDT, the Moon moves into ambitious, goal-oriented Capricorn, where it will journey until Wednesday afternoon. We tend to be more realistic, serious, and cautious; this can support practical endeavors and financial matters.

Our ambition surges and brings with it a need for structure and planning; when you add in the pragmatism this aspect supports, you can see how this could be a very productive time for business and long-term goals. Our reputation becomes very important to us.

As best as you can during this aspect, avoid “should-ing” on yourself. Take the pressure off, perhaps by saying “I am doing the best I can and that’s all I can ever do” 😉

Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn — and it is transiting through Aquarius, making this a great time to look at our visions for humanity and anything we would like to accomplish long-term within our local or online communities.

It’s also a great time to take a more serious look at our various networks and connections to like-minded people; as best as you can, be authentic about your affiliations: Do they truly resonate with your personal vision for the future — as it stands now, rather than what it was 5 or 10 years ago?

Does participation in those groups or networks align with who you are now and where you see yourself 5 years from now? What do you truly want to commit yourself to?

Monday late afternoon, a harmonious Sun/Chiron aspect becomes exact at 4:01pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from last week, Friday evening (Aug. 5th) on, and it will remain strong until this Thursday evening. This creates a supportive environment for healing our insecurities.

We can bring greater awareness to our feelings of shame and any self-deprecating thoughts or behaviors. Paradoxically, we have the chance to shine, largely because we project self-respect and modesty. This is also a great time to recognize that our so-called flaws and insecurities have become some of our best assets and strengths. Where might this be true for you?

Something else that supports healing our insecurities is a sense that we are pursuing a worthy goal — this could be something as simple as a desire to create and express ourselves, or simply acceptance of our own/human complexities while expressing ourselves creatively or otherwise.

Ask yourself: How open can I be to being courageously myself, with all my sensitivities and insecurities? How complex could I allow myself to be? How about everyone else out there in the world? Could I give others permission to be just as complex?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career point (or one or more personal planets) in 13-19 degrees of Leo, Aries, or Sagittarius? If so, you will be most blessed by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo (as the Sun rules Leo).
