Sunday August 20, 2017

Friendship is enhanced by charm and diplomacy today as Mars sextiles Jupiter. The strong, fire sign energy is somewhat controlled by the forming Mars-Saturn trine but still extraordinarily activating. This is a strong seed phase ahead of tomorrow's New Moon (11:30 AM PDT 28° Leo), which will bring forward bold, original, new initiatives. We are embarking on a journey to build alliances, friendships and partnerships which must also honor our own individual insights in order to initiate a powerful, cooperative exchange of ideas. It is extremely important to maintain dynamic adaptability and pay close attention to what is happening around us as well as what is happening on the inside.



Weekly Summary

AUGUST 20 - AUGUST 26

"Life is a journey, not a destination."
—Ralph Waldo Emerson

This week brings the second Leo New Moon (August 21st, 11:30 AM PDT 28° Leo), continuing the journey of individuation that was initiated under the first Leo New Moon (July 23rd, 2:45 AM PDT 0° Leo). If we think of the last New Moon as the beginning of a gestation process, we can view this week's New Moon as a birth process. The importance of making connections and building friendships and alliances is crucial to making use of the cascading series of insights that we find. There is an extraordinary amount of high energy Fire Sign emphasis. The high energy is structured at least a bit by the Mars-Saturn trine which culminates on Tuesday. However, the New Moon trines Uranus, bringing a strong demand for independence, which may initially blind us to the importance of cooperation, teamwork and the robust give and take of new ideas and insights. Nonetheless, by the end of the week, we emerge from our metaphorical shell and begin to sort through the the wealth of new insights. The Sun arrives in Virgo on Tuesday, moving towards the inferior conjunction with the retrograde Mercury. The Virgo Sun shifts our focus towards deeper analysis and helps us to embrace the process of expanding our perspective by seeking out the widest range of available new ideas and insights.

We begin the week in a rather rosy glow of charm and friendship. However, Monday's New Moon shifts our focus in surprising ways, making it much more difficult to listen to anything but our own unique perspective and insight. The Sun moves into Virgo and Mars trines Saturn on Tuesday, bringing some structure and an orderly process to help us sort through our new insights. Wednesday brings strong temptations to take reckless or hasty actions without having fully embraced the necessary cooperative approach, possibly leading to some disappointment and disillusionment. Venus squares Uranus on Thursday, creating extra pressure and forcing open the doors to broader cooperation and teamwork. Vulnerability is high on Friday and the Libra Moon creates a considerable amount of indecision. By Saturday, we seem to fully embrace the importance of a robust give and take and settle down enough from the week's high energy to fully explore a wide scope of ideas and opinions.

Monday August 21, 2017

This morning's New Moon (11:30 AM PDT 28° Leo) produces a surprising shift in perception, making it very difficult to see beyond our own unique perspective and embrace the important cooperative elements that are offered. We may see our alliances shift in surprising ways that could leave us feeling emotionally uncertain even though we see a cascading series of insights that keep us actively processing huge amounts of new information. Although we may be determined to share our insights, we could easily lose sight of the importance of receiving the insights that others want to share. Maintaining the crucial dynamic balance to both give and receive is quite difficult but extremely important.

Tuesday August 22, 2017

The Sun arrives in Virgo today and approaches the inferior conjunction with the retrograding Mercury. Mars forms an engaging, disciplined trine to Saturn. Mars-Saturn interactions often feel quite restricting but, in this case, the fire-sign trine provides important structure and energy to initiate a process which helps us to sort and organize the important cascade of insights provided by yesterday's New Moon. We should remember that this new process has just been initiated and won't culminate until the next Full Moon (September 6th 13° Pisces/Virgo 2:43 AM PDT) which is just after Mercury turns direct. We will benefit by taking a long view and continue to look for ways to establish long-term alliances, while maintaining dynamic balance between our inner and outer awareness.
