Mercury-Sun - Weekly Horoscope - August 1 - August 7 Daily Horoscope

"We adore chaos because we love to produce order."

— M. C. Escher

This week's waning Moon sets up something like the feeling of preparing for a major debut. However, the light always dims under a waning Moon so it's hard to see exactly what we're actually preparing for. Last month's Aquarius Full Moon (July 23rd 7:36 PM 1° Aquarius/Leo) provided some detachment which has helped us to set aside some of our more idealistic and unrealistic expectations but there may still be some ego vulnerabilities or nagging feelings of inadequacy. The creative power of the Leo Sun is extremely strong and seems to compel us to move forward even if we can't quite see where we are going.

Articles from Pluto's Child Astrology

  • Great Spiritual Teachers

  • July 2015 Full Moon
  • I'm kind of the "Rip Van Winkle" of bloggers, I'm afraid. I can't seem to get in to a steady rhythm of posting new articles and, in the meantime, some writers are so prolific, I'm just amazed at how much they've written.

    One remarkable writer is Robert Wilkinson of Aquarius Papers who manages to write [...]

  • It’s May (2014)! Just ahead – the Jupiter/Saturn trine . . .
  • It's May! This is the month that Mars will finally turn direct (May 19th) and Jupiter will trine Saturn (that sounds good to me!). The first part of this year has been dominated by the challenging, crisis-driven Grand Cardinal Cross, involving Mars, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto. The Grand Cross has challenged existing structures and agreements [...]

  • Spiritual Context
  • In my last post, I tossed out the term "Spiritual Context" and as soon as it was posted, I thought, "I need to explain what I mean there by Spiritual Context." So, I sat down to write another post - a month ago, actually - but it's taken some time to formulate how to say [...]

  • An Astrologer is (Re)Born
  • As some may have noticed, I’ve been giving this website quite a bit more attention under this retrograde Mercury. The latest (re)visions are in preparation for my (re)turn to astrological consulting. It has taken me several years to make the decision to accept clients again and the process has felt very much like a continuation [...]
