August 29th – September 4th

Self-Growth or Learning a New Skill

 

This week’s headline items: On Thursday early morning, it’s time to start taking action on our New Moon intentions; the first Quarter Moon in Sagittarius becomes exact on Saturday afternoon; also on Saturday, Mercury starts to slow down (station) — preparing for its 3-week Retrograde phase; Mars begins its pre-Shadow phase on Saturday early evening; the Uranus station ends on Sunday; and Venus changes signs from Leo to Virgo on Sunday night.

There will be four Moon Void of Course (VoC) phases this week: Monday until 5:45am EDT, Wednesday morning (for 6.5 hours), Friday early afternoon (a little over 5 hours), and Sunday late evening (12 minutes).

 

Before we get to this week’s forecast, I wanted you to know about…

I recorded a compelling interview with Keiya K. Reine — a Spiritual Advisor, Healer of the highest vibration, Master Coach, and International TEDx Speaker. The Interview will premiere on Sept. 1st at 8am EDT! You can watch this powerful video here after that time. I promise you will not regret it!

 

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, August 29th:

Monday, the Moon remains in practical, detail-oriented Virgo and VoC until 5:45am EDT. At that time, the Moon moves into harmony-loving, balance-seeking Libra, where it will journey until Wednesday early afternoon.  The energy of the Libra Moon helps us be naturally courteous and diplomatic; we are more polite now, as we seek the approval of others.

We want to maintain equal, fair relationships at this time and are therefore open to making compromises and negotiating. These next two days are an excellent time for mediation — but our need for peace and accompanying aversion to direct conflict could pull us to “yes” more quickly than we might like.

We may also be able to see both sides of the equation so well that we can’t make decisions. As best as you can, find an inner balance with this and communicate what needs to be said with grace and charm — even if it’s “No” 😉

Monday early afternoon: we are invited to connect with others one-on-one and seek a balanced experience whenever possible. Ask yourself: What if I communicated from a fair and collaborative standpoint? What if I listened to create win-wins? (Moon conjuncts Mercury in Libra, exact at 12:10pm EDT)

Monday afternoon, we feel social and seek to go after things on a mental level, so as best as you can, have stimulating conversations — and allow for fairness in discussions or arguments. (Moon in Libra trines Mars in Gemini, exact at 3:50pm EDT)

Monday evening, we are invited to reexamine our various one-on-one relationships and expand our perspectives regarding our identity or personal passions. Do your best to balance your need for harmony and fairness against exploring yourself and your goals from a higher perspective.

Ask yourself: How can I balance my need for connection and harmony with my desire for greater self-fulfillment and independence? (Moon in Libra opposes Jupiter in Aries, exact at 7pm EDT)

August 22nd – 28th

Taking Things Too Personally?

 

This week’s headline items: The Sun changes signs from Leo to Virgo late on Monday evening; the Balsamic Moon phase begins very early Tuesday; Uranus comes to a halt & starts its yearly 5-month Retrograde phase late on Wednesday morning; Mercury changes signs from Virgo to Libra on Thursday late evening; the New Moon in Virgo becomes exact Saturday early morning.

There will be three  Moon Void of Course (VoC) phases this week: Wednesday early morning (for 3.5 hours), Friday very early morning (for 17.5 hours), and Sunday late evening (for a little over 6.5 hours).

 

Before we get to this week’s forecast, I have an important announcement:

With the current Moon Nodes in Taurus/Scorpio, we are invited to investigate ourselves on a deeper level and release any emotional baggage from the past or inauthentic/toxic connections with others, so we can step into greater abundance and have a realization of our worthiness on this physical plane.

Due to some unforeseen circumstances in my life this year, I have been doing a lot of deep inner work on myself and also with some of my clients. The results have been phenomenal so far. This sparked the idea of creating two new Coaching Packages that can support this more profound and more meaningful journey in our lives. ==> Click here to watch my video on the subject

One of the new offerings is a Life Crises Package, which gives you some very intensive support for 21 days/3 weeks; I created this package for anyone who is going through a massive shift in their lives, something that might be paralyzing without the proper support: uncoupling, health issues, loss of any kind,…

The other is a 90-day VIP package that will provide exclusive Coaching for 3 months. It provides transformation somewhere you have felt stuck and unable to move forward, despite your best efforts (e.g., career goals or changing careers, love life, conscious uncoupling, finances, health, parenting, etc.)

Since I can only accommodate 1 person for the Life Crisis package, and 3 people for the VIP package at any one time, if you are interested, please reach out right away. Once these four slots are filled, anyone else will be added to the waitlist.

 

Now, this week’s Forecast…

Monday, August 22nd:

Monday, the Moon remains in protective, nurturing Cancer all day. It will journey there until Wednesday morning. With this Moon placement, we are more sensitive to what people say and therefore our feelings are more easily hurt — so be kind to yourself and others. Self-Care is key for the next two-and-a-half days 😉

Emotional safety is important to us as well; we like connecting to the familiar and we enjoy nurturing ourselves and others — home and family call to us, for instance. Make sure though, that your glass is filled before letting others drink from it, or you might start to feel drained and resentful.

Monday early evening, a harmonious Mercury/Pluto aspect becomes exact at 5:59pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from last week, Friday afternoon (Aug. 19th) on, and it will remain strong until this Thursday evening. Our words and our “speaking” are very grounded and realistic. We can feel really empowered by what we say (and how we say it) during this time. Our conviction and passion help us to connect and empower others.

We are strongly connected to our inner truth and can analyze and understand our motivations around long-term goals. We investigate our own thought structures in a very realistic, focused way, and look to see what needs to be communicated next.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in the following placements: 23-29 degrees of Virgo, Capricorn or Taurus, or 0 degrees of Libra, Aquarius or Gemini? If so, you will be even more blessed by this aspect than those who do not; this is also true for those of us with our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini, Virgo or Scorpio (Mercury rules Gemini and Virgo, Pluto rules Scorpio).

Monday late evening, at 11:16pm EDT, the Sun changes signs from fun and attention-loving Leo to detail-oriented, practical Virgo. It will journey there until September 22nd. This time is best used for getting our lives in order and expressing ourselves in realistic, practical terms.

Addressing our health (e.g., starting a new exercise or eating routine) might be just the thing within the next four weeks. Being of service and moving towards improving our living conditions are essential Virgo qualities. How might you be of service to others? What needs a little practical improvement?

All this is especially true if you are a Leo or Virgo Sun-sign or Rising-sign. Virgo folks will feel extra confident and playful; Leo people are more aware of the details and more grounded in reality.

New Moon in Virgo — the article

On Aug. 27th at 4:17am EDTthe Moon aligns with the Sun in 4 degrees of Virgo, marking the beginning of a new Moon cycle. We start to feel the effects of this New Moon the moment the Moon enters Virgo on Friday evening (Aug. 26th). Feel free to watch my New Moon video on the subject.

Before we jump in, I just want to say that I have a big announcement to make, so please stay tuned until the end, or skip to the part of the article, right before I talk about setting Intentions!

This New Moon makes a strong Square to Mars in Gemini. This creates some challenges. Mars will be in this fidgety sign for a total of 7 months, due to its Retrograde phase in late October. The Square will only last until Sept. 2nd, however since it is part of this New Moon chart we can feel its impact for the next 28 days (until Sept. 25th). 

The good news is that Mercury (the ruler of Virgo) makes a Trine (a supportive, harmonious aspect) to Mars in Gemini, and Jupiter in Aries, makes a Sextile (an opportune aspect) to Mars in Gemini in this New Moon chart, so it’s not all bad news 😉

I will talk more about all of this in connection with the planetary aspects of this New Moon chart, but first let’s look at the Virgo energy of this New Moon:

Virgo provides an opportunity to learn about being of service — and what it might mean to strengthen our focus on improving our daily routines — getting organized, for example — and taking care of health matters.

This New Moon cycle will thus be a great time to begin new projects that demand attention to detail, list-making, and taking pride in “small” accomplishments. We might start a new health regimen, perhaps by paying close attention to our diet; we could also set up specific routines that help us manage our lives in constructive and mindful ways.

This cycle is all about handling the nitty-gritty details of our day-to-day life in an organized, step-by-step fashion, so we can free our minds of clutter. Where could you use more open space?

Things to watch out for: sweating the details, worrying, and being extra-critical of ourselves and others when something doesn’t get done “right”.

A great way to step into the higher vibrations of Virgo

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 2-6 degrees of Virgo, Pisces, Gemini, or Sagittarius? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

And here is the announcement! With the current Moon Nodes in Taurus/Scorpio, we are invited to investigate ourselves on a deeper level and release any emotional baggage from the past or inauthentic/toxic connections with others, so we can step into greater abundance and have a realization of our worthiness on this physical plane.

Due to some unforeseen circumstances in my life this year, I have been doing a lot of deep inner work on myself and also with some of my clients. The results have been phenomenal so far. This sparked the idea of creating two new Coaching Packages that can support this more profound and more meaningful journey in our lives.

One of the new offerings is a Life Crises Package, which gives you some very intensive support for 21 days/3 weeks; I created this package for anyone who is going through a massive shift in their lives, something that might be paralyzing without the proper support: uncoupling, health issues, loss of any kind,…

The other is a 90-day VIP package that will provide exclusive Coaching for 3 months. It provides transformation somewhere you have felt stuck and unable to move forward, despite your best efforts (e.g., career goals or changing careers, love life, conscious uncoupling, finances, health, parenting, etc.)

Since I can only accommodate 1 person for the Life Crisis package and 3 people for the VIP package at any one time, if you are interested, please reach out right away. Once these four slots are filled, anyone else will be added to a waitlist.

The New Moon is also the best time to set some powerful intentions for this month’s Moon cycle. Intentions are best done soon after the New Moon becomes exact — and definitely not during a Moon void of course phase.

So this month, the best and most potent time to set intentions would be between 4:17am Saturday early morning (Aug. 27th) and 11:08pm Sunday late evening (Aug. 28th) — in the New York time zone.

If you live in a timezone other than EDT (that’s the US East Coast time zone), feel free to join my Facebook Fan page or follow me on Twitter. I will be posting reminders on Nov. 27th & 28th throughout the day to let you know when it is time to set your intentions 😉

Now, this week’s Forecast…

Monday, August 15th:

Monday, the Moon remains in pioneering, fast-paced Aries all day. It will journey through this sign until Tuesday late evening. With this placement, life is an adventure; we’re more open to new ideas and have great enthusiasm for new projects. Patience is certainly not our strong suit at this time, but we can decide quickly and act immediately.

Our independence and dynamism are important to us right now, so we may find it hard to be disciplined or accept advice at this time; in general, our responses to others tend to be more assertive or even aggressive. If you find your foot tapping, try hitting the gym or finding other ways to burn off the body’s excess energy.

Monday morning, we are ready to make a courageous move. Follow your instincts as best as you can: you know better than anyone what’s best for you. (Moon conjuncts Jupiter in Aries, exact at 6:59am EDT)

Monday evening has lots of potential for healing around family, the “mother archetype”, home, and our past in general. We may feel more sensitive and insecure about what we identify with and around our ability to be assertive; this allows us to give ourselves some compassion, acceptance, and nurturing in the face of our sensitivities and limitations. (Moon conjuncts Chiron in Aries, exact at 9:01pm EDT)

Monday night/Tuesday very early morning at 12:41am EDT: if you are awake at this time, you may feel the need for inner adjustments. We feel uneasy or awkward and need to make a choice. Making this choice demands we develop inner awareness around two very different urges: on the one hand, we want to connect on a practical level and share our most precise observations with others — and on the other hand, we feel the need to be independent, move fast, and be actively engaged with life. (Moon in Aries quincunxes Mercury in Virgo, exact at 12:41am EDT)

August 8th – 14th

Haste Makes Waste — Astrology Forecast for Aug. 8th – 14th, 2022

 

This week’s headline items: Uranus starts to slow down (station) on Wednesday, preparing for its yearly 5-month Retrograde phase; Venus changes signs from Cancer to Leo on Thursday afternoon and the Full Moon in Aquarius becomes exact that evening; Mars opposes the degree of May 16th’s Lunar Eclipse on Friday morning.

There will be four Moon Void of Course (VoC) phases this week: Monday morning (for a little over 8 hours); Wednesday early afternoon (for a little over 2 hours), Friday morning (for a little over 7.5 hours), and Sunday late morning (for 5.5 hours).

Before we get to this week’s forecast, a quick reminder:

Until Saturday morning is your last chance to sign up for this week’s Forum!  ==> We have our monthly Forecasting Forum coming up at the end of this week…please see the very bottom of this Weekly Forecast for more info!

Or click here for more info and to register, for this month only.
(Registration includes access to the mp4-video recording of the live event!)

To ask a question in advance; please email me by Aug. 12th by the end of the workday,… and if I don’t have it yet, send me a copy of your Birth Chart (If you have done a Reading or Coaching-Healing session with me in the past, or if you have already emailed me a copy of your chart, I will have it. If none of this applies to you, send me a pdf of your birth chart).

 

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).

Super Full Moon in Aquarius — the article

Please remember that due to a family matter, I will be taking a break from creating Full Moon videos until the end of the summer. All other Member content (including Full Moon articlesNew Moon videos, New Moon articles, and my Weekly Forecasts) will continue uninterrupted.

On  August 11th, at 9:36pm EDTthe Full Moon becomes exact in 19 degrees of Aquarius. The entrance of the Moon into Aquarius on Wednesday afternoon (Aug. 10th) starts the energetic build-up towards this Full Moon; the Moon in freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius opposes the Sun in fun-loving, expressive Leo. 

Oppositions always resonate back to the conjunction of the planets involved. We are looking to see how far we have come since that conjunction. For example, with the Full Moon, we are looking back to the previous New Moon (in this case, July 28th), to see what has developed since then.

This Full Moon has heightened effects on us for many reasons: first, it is another “Full SuperMoon” (i.e. the Moon is at its closest distance to the Earth).

The Moon in Aquarius also makes a conjunction with Saturn (the traditional ruler of Aquarius). Uranus (the modern ruler of Aquarius), is exalted (stationing) at the time of this Super Full Moon, and is also still conjunct the North Node & Mars in Taurus; it has now become the Focus Point of a T-Square with the Full Moon. The Moon Nodes in Taurus/Scorpio create a Grand Cross with the Full Moon polarity.

Since there are multiple Oppositions and Squares in this Super Full Moon chart, let’s take a look at what those represent: Oppositions require integration and balance, whereas Squares invite us to stretch and grow, as we may be experiencing challenges, and we are asked to overcome that which feels uncomfortable.

We also have three Trines and two Sextiles in this Full Moon chart. Trines feel supportive and give us a sense of ease. Sextiles are opportunities that require action. These are the major themes of this Super Full Moon chart and we will address them in detail in a moment.

But first, let’s talk about the Full Moon polarity (and if you know this polarity already, feel free to skip to the details of this particular Super Full Moon chart — the aspects):

The Moon in Aquarius opposes the Sun in Leo; this highlights the power of our individual creativity and the exponential potency of collaboration. Each of us is invited to reclaim ourselves, and add our voice, heart, and hands to something that has meaning for us.

The invitation here is to dare to be different, and to remember how we are all part of a larger whole. The highest quest of Leo leads to authentic Self-expression: to embody our gifts, shine our light, and live our truth. The highest task of Aquarius, on the other hand, is the attainment of unity in diversity, where everyone’s uniqueness is honored and included.

When we align our head with our heart, we feel our interconnectedness with all of humanity, and we create and connect from love instead of fear. Given that Leo represents our individual self-expression and Aquarius our vision for humankind, a question is raised: How can we best achieve a balance between these two energies? Or perhaps even an integration?

For the next two weeks, we’ll be…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 17-21 degrees of Aquarius, Leo, Taurus, or Scorpio? If so, you may feel the effects of this Super Full Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (since the Sun rules Leo and the Moon rules Cancer)

August 1st – 7th

The Necessity for a Healthy Relationship with the Physical World

 

This week’s headline items: Mars aligns with North Node and Uranus in Taurus on Monday afternoon; on Tuesday afternoon, the Sun squares the degree of April 30th’s Solar Eclipse, and it is also time to take actions on your New Moon intentions; Mercury changes signs from Leo to Virgo very early on Thursday morning; Jupiter’s Station phase ends later on Thursday (remaining retrograde until Nov. 23rd); last but not least, the First Quarter Moon in Scorpio becomes exact on Friday morning.

There will be three Moon Void of Course (VoC) phases this week: Monday evening (for a little over 5.5 hours); Thursday very early morning (for 5.5 hours), and Saturday morning (a little over 5 hours).

 

Now, this week’s Forecast…

Monday, August 1st:

Monday is a big day (astrologically speaking): first of all, the Moon remains in detail-oriented, practical Virgo all day.

With this placement, our focus is on the practical and wholesome. We are generous with our time/services and we love to help others. We also have a fondness for science and anything that makes sense in our world — things and knowledge we can apply and use.

Health might also come into focus at this time. We notice the parts that make up the whole; this is a great time to see if our daily routines (eating, work, self-care, etc.) align with our long-term goals.

Monday morning, a somewhat challenging Mercury/Neptune aspect becomes exact at 7:23am EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from last week, Sunday morning (July 31st), and it will remain strong until this Tuesday morning. This could contribute either to some mental confusion and spaciness, or the need to communicate with others from our imagination (but possibly not knowing how to achieve that).

This aspect operates more on an internal level: We feel uneasy about something, sort of “awkward” — and we need to make a choice. Sometimes, imagination and mind can run far ahead of what is feasible (and sensible). At these times, the grand vision is best served by focusing on the next concrete step, accepting our own idiosyncrasies as we go.

Honesty is crucial here, especially self-honesty; inner awareness is in turn crucial to deep honesty and authenticity. What’s true for you? What might be possible for humanity? Where do those overlap?

Note that I say “overlap”: Don’t look for an exact fit; this is more like two puzzle pieces that came from different jigsaw puzzles. You might keep looking at the imperfect fit and feel a nagging sense that something doesn’t make sense… and it doesn’t — it can’t. The pieces are not from the same game. Just do your best to “hang out” with the discomfort, rather than repeatedly trying to figure it out and fix it.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 24-26 degrees of Leo or Pisces? If so, you will be more affected by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini, Virgo, or Pisces (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo; Neptune rules Pisces).

Around 2pm EDT Monday, Mars aligns with the North Node in 18.5º of TaurusWe started to feel this alignment build from last Thursday morning (July 28th), and it will remain strong until this Saturday. The last time this alignment took place in any sign was in late March 2021 (in Gemini); the last time we had one in Taurus was in February 2004!

Think back to February of 2004: what steps did you take back then to see your own value more clearly? Where did you indicate new ways of sharing your talents or your resources?

The North Node represents uncharted territory — an area of our lives where we must grow, even if it’s scary, even if it requires effort on our part — but this effort will be rewarded, and usually feels fulfilling.

The North Node in Taurus emphasizes the necessity for organic self-esteem and a healthy relationship with the physical world — with our bodies, resources, and the Earth. The goal is to experience happiness in connection with the physical realm.

Mars aligning with the North Node brings an activating energy to everything concerning Taurus: the enjoyment of our physical world and physical body, as well as an understanding of our value, and what talents and resources we are bringing to the table.

We are ready to roll up our sleeves and do the work: it’s time to develop more awareness around what our own values genuinely are, versus those we may have adopted or inherited.

It takes courage to engage with North Node issues, so ask yourself: What is the next step on my journey toward becoming an ever-stronger, healthy individual, one who honors and loves themselves, and is not afraid to have different values from others?

Mars also aligns with Uranus later today, so please also read the entry about the Mars/Uranus alignment in Taurus that will be exact later this evening, at 7:53pm EDT (see below).

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 16-22 degrees of Taurus, ScorpioLeo, or Aquarius? If so, you will be more affected by this alignment. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Aries (Mars is the ruler of Aries)

Monday evening, at 6:29pm EDT, we enter a Moon VoC that lasts for a little over 5.5 hours, until 12:06am EDT (Monday night/Tuesday very early morning). Use this intuitive time to empower each other around earthly issues and support each other in practical ways. Your attention to detail is enhanced; you might implement new health routines or other systems that support your long-term goals.

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 evening until Tuesday very early morning ahead of time.

Also, on Monday evening, a Mars/Uranus alignment in 18.5 degrees of Taurus becomes exact at 7:53pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from last week, Wednesday evening (July 27th), and it will remain strong until this Saturday evening.  This connection brings a lot of nervous energy with it: we will most likely feel sudden spurts of energy moving through our bodies; this could make us rash in thought and deed. We may experience sudden insights about ourselves and our valued goals.

Ask yourself: What might it look like to consciously break away from situations that have limited me when it came to honoring myself and my talents? Where could I channel my courage? Where do I need to “think different”? Act differently? Might a deep breath into my belly calm my nervous system?

Our willingness to innovate is strong with this alignment: new ways of seeing, using, and approaching our personal possessions, valuables, money, and talents are in focus.

This alignment between Uranus and Mars also asks us to break away from anything keeping us from honoring our uniqueness and quirks — whatever keeps us in a rut, collectively and individually.

Ask yourself: What if — in small or large ways — I could help birth a new age and with it a new world, one based on heart-centered consciousness and individual freedoms?

Please be extra conscious when driving. Do your best to channel the extra energy in a productive way: physical exercise is great for this, as is consciously breaking away from situations that have limited you — up until now. And (this is always wise)… As best as you can, stay grounded and keep breathing 

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 16-22 degrees of Taurus, ScorpioLeo, or Aquarius? If so, you will be more affected by this alignment. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Aries or Aquarius (Mars is the ruler of Aries; Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius)

Monday night/Tuesday very early morning at 12:06am EDT, the Moon moves into harmony-loving, balance-seeking Libra, where it will journey until Thursday morning. The energy of the Libra Moon helps us be naturally courteous and diplomatic; we are more polite at this time, as we seek the approval of others.

We very much want to maintain equal, fair relationships at this time and are therefore open to making compromises and negotiating. These next two days are a great time for mediation — but our need for peace and accompanying aversion to direct conflict could pull us to “yes” more easily than we might like.

We may also be able to see both sides of the equation so well that we can’t make decisions. As best as you can, find an inner balance with this and communicate what needs to be said with grace and charm — even if it’s “No”. One last quick note: this is also a great time for anything to do with visual arts.

This week’s headline items: Jupiter’s Station in Aries intensifies on Monday; the New Moon in Leo becomes exact on Thursday early afternoon; Jupiter comes to a halt and starts its 4-month Retrograde phase on Thursday late afternoon; Chiron ends its Station phase in Aries on Saturday (while remaining Retrograde).

There will be three Moon Void of Course (VoC) phases this week: Monday early morning (for a little over 9.5 hours); Wednesday evening (a little over 5.5 hours), and Friday night/Saturday very early morning (almost 14 hours).

 

Now, this week’s Forecast…

Monday, July 25th:

Monday, the Moon remains in chatty, versatile Gemini until 1:54pm EDT. With this placement, we like to learn, connect and interact as much as possible. “Busy” feels good: connecting online, on the phone, or sharing face-to-face, preferably multi-tasking all the way…

The one thing we can do without is boredom: If our mind is not engaged in some way, we might as well curl up and play dead 🙂

Monday in the very early morning, a challenging Venus/Jupiter aspect becomes exact at 2:13am EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from last Friday evening (July 22nd) and it will remain strong until this Wednesday evening. This aspect asks that we question our most fundamental beliefs and conditioning around money, valuing ourselves, and our relationships.

It also challenges us to step out of our comfort zone and grow beyond who we thought we were when we were growing up (or in the past).

We are also invited to investigate how we view our connections to family and home. We are called to grow beyond our current understanding of what our values led us to pursue until now.

Issues connected to love, relationships, and whatever is most valuable to us, can seem overwhelming at this time. This is because we have a tendency to overindulge or over-promise.

Ask yourself: What assumptions am I operating from in connection with money that are based in my past and no longer applicable? What are the assumptions around love? Where am I overindulging, based on what I think I deserve, rather than what I truly need?

We mean well, because we are feeling quite optimistic at this time, but may underestimate how much time we actually have, or how good a fit something actually is.

Overspending could be connected to this aspect as well, as could making assumptions around our personal projects or leadership abilities; as best as you can, bring a non-judgmental awareness to any such tendencies.

What are you observing about yourself and your emotional connections with others? What is enough… and what is too much?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 5-12 degrees of Cancer, Aries, Libra, or Capricorn? If so, you will feel this aspect quite strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus, Libra, or Sagittarius (Venus is the ruler of Taurus and Libra; Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius).

Monday in the early morning, at 4:14am EDT, we enter a Moon VoC that lasts for a little over 9.5 hours, until 1:54pm EDT. Use this intuitive time to make some adjustments — you may also need to do a little stretching and growing when it comes to your inner, intuitive, or emotional experiences. As best as you can, be gentle with yourself and others, and seek to understand before seeking to be understood.

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 early morning until the early afternoon ahead of time.

Monday early afternoon, at 1:54pm EDT, the Moon moves into protective, nurturing Cancer, where it will journey until Wednesday night/Thursday very early morning. With this Moon placement, we are more sensitive to what people say to (and about) us, so be kind to yourself and others. Emotional safety is important to us at this time: We like connecting to the familiar, home or family becomes our sanctuary.

Nurture yourself and others, but remember: Make sure your glass is filled before letting others drink from it — otherwise we might start resenting others for draining our energies.

Also on Monday, Jupiter’s Station intensifies at almost 9º of Aries, as it is preparing to come to a halt on Thursday afternoon (starting its 4-month Retrograde phase… more on that later…). This intensified station will last until July 30th. We will feel Jupiter’s energy even more forcefully during this time.

As I mentioned last Friday already, when a planet stations, we start to be more fully aware of its energy; this awareness helps us to get more connected to those energies as they exist within us. We get to see where we need to embrace them more fully, so that we can use them in a healthy way, without getting lost in the lower vibrations of their expression.

The lower expressions of Jupiter include “Oh, the heck with it”, “I deserve this and more”, and “the rules do not apply to me” — generally speaking: too much of a good thing, blind optimism, excess, stretching the truth, overpromising, and overindulgence.

Those of us who have any of our personal planets (or our Ascendant) in 7-11 degrees of Aries, Capricorn, Cancer, or Libra will be more affected by this station. This is also true for those of us with their Ascendant or Sun-sign in Sagittarius (Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius, so those folks will always be affected more strongly by Jupiter’s movements and aspects)

New Moon in Leo — the article

On July 28th, at 1:55pm EDTthe Moon aligns with the Sun in 5.5 degrees of Leo — in other words, the New Moon will be exact (I recommend you also watch my New Moon video on the subject).

There are several planets of importance in this New Moon chart: Jupiter & Chiron in Aries (both exalted/stationing); Mars, Uranus, & the North Node align in Taurus; finally, Saturn in Aquarius & Mercury in Leo square the Moon Nodes in Taurus-Scorpio.

The dwarf planet/asteroid Ceres aligns with the New Moon in Leo; this makes nurturing our inner creative child and any physical children essential for the next 28 days.

Jupiter & Chiron are not only exalted in this New Moon chart, but they also both make an aspect to the New Moon, Mercury & Venus… But more about all of that in a moment, first let’s talk about the New Moon energies:

The New Moon in fun-loving, extroverted, expressive Leo has us looking for heartfelt experiences. It’s important for us to express ourselves, to learn about love — and in particular, to learn about how those things work together to help us create from the heart and from a place of joy.

Think about the keywords for this self-expressed fire sign: “proud, generous, hospitable, caring, warm, authoritative, active, open, fun-loving”… How could you live into those words?

Leo is ruled by the Sun, symbol of consciousness and the unique light we came to shine in this lifetime — this is what we were born to explore and express — so ask yourself: Where could I shine my unique light more brightly? What brings me joy? Not just in general… but in this very moment?

Leo also represents our creativity: there are as many ways to be creative and self-expressed as there are “selves” — indeed, we are all creators — we create with every thought, word, and action.

Creativity requires innocence, curiosity, courage, and play. To live it out, we must tap into the unique spark inside of us in a joyful way — and allow ourselves the freedom to make mistakes — creativity thrives on love and permission and is stifled by judgment and fear.

Take a moment to contact your “free inner child” — that place inside that is ready to play and create. What might encourage that inner child to come out and play? If you aren’t sure, there’s no need to guess: Try asking it gently and directly…

As I started to talk about earlier, Jupiter & Chiron in Aries are both exalted/stationing at the time of the New Moon; when a planet is in its Station phase, we are more fully aware of its energy. This helps us to get more connected to…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 3-8 degrees of Leo, Aquarius, Taurusor Scorpio? Or do your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer? This New Moon may feel stronger to you…

And last, but definitely not least: the New Moon is also the best time to set some powerful intentions for this month’s Moon cycle; the best time for the intention-setting process is soon after the New Moon becomes exact, and definitely not during a Moon void of course phase.

That means the best & most potent time to set intentions this month would be between 1:55pm, Thursday, July 28th, and 12:29am on Saturday, July 30th. As always, all times are in EDT — the New York timezone.

If you live outside the EDT timezone, and converting timezones isn’t your thing, I suggest joining my Facebook Fanpage and/or following me on Twitter. I will be posting reminders on both platforms on July 28th, 29th & 30th to let you know when is the best time to set your intentions 😉
