Friday, August 25.

We are on a roll.  The Skywatch is excellent for handling top priority matters in your life over the next three days.

The main event ahead is lucky Jupiter lining up in a sextile to practical Saturn.  Sextiles signal to us times of opportunity that are positive.  This marker has been cooking for the last two weeks and encourages you to look for new possibilities and opportunities in work and play.  “Good timing” is another way to define this pair as lucky situations may appear now and never again.

The rest of Friday’s astrological weather is upbeat and good for getting your message out.  The Moon in partnership sign Libra conjuncts lucky Jupiter at 8:31 am PDT.  Luna travels on to sextile Saturn and Mars at 1:05 pm.

All of the above are very helpful in business and sales.  Clear skies follow until 10:39 pm when the Moon opposes jumpy Uranus.

Notable: Saturn ends a long Retrograde cycle today – time to review your top ambition and what you are going to do about it – it’s time to act.

A pink slip in love. Caution lights. That’s one way to describe sweet and loving Venus in square to inconstant and ever changing Uranus on Thursday.

Some folks may get nasty or rude Thursday morning as the square becomes exact at 12 pm PDT, high noon.  Problems with computers, anything electrical, and the third-grade kid with a smoke bomb are also more likely as Uranus inflames the rebel in us all.  Now we add Mercury Retrograde to the Skywatch, and you can see this is not a good morning for cosmetic anything, seeking approval of plans or spending a lot of money on a whim.  Afternoon hours are thus much better for calls and business as the Moon in mellow Libra sails out into calm waters for the rest of the day and night.  As times change.

Get after it.  Morning hours are the best of the day for anything important, expensive or critical in your life.

The kiss of the days appears at 1:02 pm PDT when the Moon sextiles sweet Venus.  Sextiles are positive aspects that invite action.

Caution lights come on a minute later as the Moon turns Void of Course until she enters gentle Libra at 6:05 pm.  Hold off on decisions and making purchases during the V/C hours now, especially with Mercury Retrograde in home-sign Virgo backing up on the bases.

Green lights come back on after the Moon changes signs and sails out into calm seas.

Mixed signals.

An aggressive Mars-Saturn trine at 6:20 am PDT points you in the direction of getting organized as you start your day.  This marker suggests a very good day to put a new plan into motion and gives us all a bit more energy for the job Tuesday morning.

A moment of doubt or something confusing appears in the Skywatch at 12:17 pm when the Moon lines up opposite dreamy Neptune.  But astrological skies quickly clear and improve as the Sun enters realistic Virgo at 3:21 pm.

A healing and helpful Moon-Pluto trine follows at 7:12 pm.

Quiet hours follow.

A Solar Eclipse and New Moon in Leo headlines the Skywatch on Monday.

Visible across a wide swath of North America, this lunation calls out a very powerful time to plant seeds and to initiate changes in your life.

Green lights are up as the Moon trines innovative Uranus at 10:39 am PDT just before meeting the Sun creating the New Moon at 11:30 am.  Luna then turns Void of course until she enters practical Virgo at 1:25 pm.

Hold off on making important purchases and decisions while the Moon is V/C.  Remember, Mercury is still Retrograde increasing the chances of errors and misunderstandings in your home or office.

I see the astrological community focusing on the Eclipse as a power point.  And it is - but only if you take action.  The stars impel, they don’t compel.

Having Uranus linked in harmony to this New Moon also encourages you to make positive changes now and in the days ahead.

Evening hours are good for work or play as another positive trine powers up in the heavens.

If your birthday is this week (Aug 20-26)

The recent new Moon and Solar Eclipse near your birthday provides you with your homework for the year ahead, late Leo and early Virgo birth signs.

Plant seeds, take the initiative and things can work out much better than you thought possible.

Tireless Mars sits next to your Sun in your new Solar Return – he is the “new event” specialist and gives you extra strength and courage to open new doors of experience and action.

A Venus-Uranus square in your new SR puts pressure on your love life and finances in the months ahead – an unexpected complication is likely, especially if you have painted over the truth.

Do your homework and analyze matters carefully with Mercury Retrograde in this chart of your new year and you’ll make good decisions.

Ask for new responsibilities and opportunities.  And know that the seeds you plant this year can bear lots of fruit in the future – that’s the promise of a Solar Eclipse.
