COSMIC WAVES FORECAST AUGUST 3RD TO 9TH 2018
SIDEREAL WESTERN ASTROLOGY
This week has its own set of challenges. The “hidden one” is a Grand Square (it aspects in mid-morning with the ascendant) that will hold up through August 13th. With Libra on the ascendant part of the equation has to do with legalities and a balancing of power. While it does not stay in aspect all day, mornings will have a definite slump for many as they try to sort out the unsolvable. Things just don’t want to balance one way or another. Plus, there is an urgency and erratic jabs that are permeating everything for a while. The T Square with Uranus/Mars and the Draconian points adds urgency as things could be seen as a turning point meeting major resistance. This will continue until the first of October. Advice, is don’t do legal documents in the morning, and prioritize what you do so that the important stuff gets done.
Another aspect is with Venus. She is now in Virgo but opposite Chiron in Pisces. Remember the Wounded Healer who can’t heal them self? There is a positive aspect with Venus and Mars this week to help avoid a decent into the unfathomable. You will have to pull yourself up without much outside help. To take the positive spin on this as a time for romantic partners to let go of the fun and frivolity of the last month of Venus in Leo and start to get together with the practicalities of life. If aspects of your life need adjusting, the answer is to turn towards what is sustainable for a while. Yes, being carefree is lots of fun, but if you spend too much time there, then you head into debt and drudgery. Those who can reign in their budget and responsibilities will feel much better about themselves as the fall arrives. Plenty of energy to get the responsibilities managed at this time too.
There is another partial solar eclipse next week on August 11th. This will occur just before the sun rises in the Tulsa area so there will be no visibility. The New Moon happens this day also and both Sun and Moon will be in Cancer. Honor those who just want to hide out and stay safe. With the other things happening right now, it is best not to push otherwise outgoing people into uncomfortable situations. This could also be a time where those who are bad actors take a hard look at themselves and that mirror reflection is going to be harsh. For the rest of us, stay out of harm’s way.
Just a reminder that Uranus in Aries is still squared to Mars in Capricorn and all its difficulties. The two bode difficulties with cyber attacks (Uranus rules technology and Mars, well there is that war vibe) and difficulties with money. There is enough positive energy to help circumvent big problems with money and other assaults to help you out, if you are aware this is a vulnerable time.
With Mercury under retrograde and squares, messaging will be more disturbing than ever. Think of a cornered animal fighting harder than ever to get out of a mess. Neptune is still retrograde so lies and games are alive and well right now.
Friday, August 3rd, the twinge of new erratic assaults on our emotional nature will be strong today. The Moon is conjunct Uranus in Aries. Karma is coming today for some people so just step aside and let her do her work. Life is all about lessons, and some people just take to long to make the adjustment. Moon in Aries.
Saturday, August 4th, for some, the pressure of yesterday will feel more like Kali standing on your chest. For the rest of us, figure out how you will manage your budget and other debts with a changing climate. Err on the side of frugality because what seems far away from your life will eventually have an impact on you anyway. Just be proactive and get practical. Actually, a good day to sell some extra stuff if you want to simplify or simply get unused things out from underfoot. Moon in Aries.
Sunday, August 5th, kudos to you if you can even get out of bed! Work with the earthy Grand Trine and don’t stray far from home. Keep it simple today and manage your stuff! The next week will need a rested and focused mindset to get through the maze of changes. I am a strong advocate of Feng Shui and the stroke of genius of that practice is everything in the house is useful, working and there is free movement throughout the house. Work on your personal projects at home and go into next week feeling like you were proactive and in control of yourself. Moon in Aries until afternoon when it goes into Taurus.
Monday, August 6th, pulling from yesterday’s accomplishments, take that extra step and finish up any material exchanges you may need to do. Yesterday’s work was probably more than you anticipated but finishing up today has just a bit more go power. You are probably feeling more like your home is your nest, and it is looking better than ever. It never hurts to polish up what you have to recognize just how much you have! Moon in Taurus.
Tuesday, August 7th, the Sun and Mercury are traveling in tandem for a while and they are exactly squared to Jupiter for the next several days. Watch out of personal mistakes in judgement and partial misunderstandings. Instead of stressing over someone being slow or seemingly wandering about, know that the over load of the bigger world slows our inner world to a snail’s pace. Time to pay attention to nuances and act like you could be next to be doddering about. Moon in Taurus.
Wednesday, August 8th, the Moon will be squaring Venus and Chiron today. Too much information will be overloading even the brightest Air signs. Find your foundations or do your quick meditations to maintain your temper and perspective. Moon in Gemini.
Thursday, August 9th, yesterday’s quandaries will be pulled into some sort of order today. Preserver with what you need to do and the evening will provide you some answers. Remember with the challenges of this summer, the big lesson is to honor what you have, pull those you love around you for community and know that eventually things will sort themselves out. If you do your part without making it worse for others, then the outcome has to be better. Moon in Gemini.
