A pleasant surprise is likely this morning. The Moon in trustworthy Taurus sails out into calm seas this morning UNTIL Luna meets unpredictable Uranus in the heavens at 10:33 am PDT.
However, there is a wave of positive energy in the Skywatch at the same time due to bright Mercury sitting in a trine to upbeat Jupiter, exact at 3:05 am. So, this is a good morning to make a surprise visit or call.
Another notable change in the Skywatch is sweet Venus entering earth sign Virgo, traveling through this considerate sign until mid-September. Virgo rules our pets, making this a good window of time to get a new puppy or kitty.
Evening skies are clear and friendly. As times change.
The only quack in the heavens today appears at 3:53 am PDT early Tuesday morning when the Moon squares obsessive Pluto. (note that this square shows up at 6:53 am on the east coast - be sure to convert Skywatch time to your local time zone). A big-time clearing trend follows as the Aries Moon sails out into calm waters.
Two lovely kisses grace the Skywatch this afternoon and evening. The Moon trines the Sun at 5:01 pm, encouraging positive reactions from everyone in your home or office. Romance blooms Tuesday night when the Moon trines affectionate Venus at 9:06 pm.
A short Moon Void of Course cycle follows until Luna enters gentle Taurus at 9:37 pm. Taurus is ruled by Venus, so the good vibes continue.
As times change.
New ideas and thinking are likely to help you solve problems and open new doors of understanding Monday morning. All due to the Moon in Aries making a trine to clever Mercury, exact at 8:41 am PDT.
Signals are mixed Monday afternoon as the Moon squares cynical Saturn at 2:56 pm but then trines optimistic Jupiter two minutes later. Best then to ignore the negative stuff that comes up with the square.
Let times change.
Astrological skies are
foggy Saturday morning as the Moon in dreamy Pisces meets the sign’s ruler
Neptune in the heavens at 9:09 am
PDT. Save the hard jobs for the hours that follow as the Skywatch clears and
improves Saturday afternoon when the Moon sextiles persevering Pluto at 3:34 pm. Call it quits around this
moment as the Moon turns Void of Course a minute later until Sunday morning.
Evening skies are well suited for a movie, dancing, romance, fishing or a
concert—all under the rule of the Pisces Moon.
Sunday’s Skywatch is high energy. The Moon enters Mars-ruled Aries at 9:33 am and sails out into calm skies for the rest of the day and night. Aries energy encourages you to be physical in some way and to do things you’ve never done before. As times change.
If your birthday is this week (August 18–24)
There’s an unusual pair of planets walking along side by side in your new Solar Return, late Leo and early Virgo birth signs. Venus, who likes to spend, flirt, and eat chocolates, is holding hands with Mars, who is impulsive and prone to buying something that breaks the budget. This pair can generate love at first sight—whether it’s a person, a new car, or what you find in a shopping spree at the mall. There are two other powerful planets in this chart of your new year: Jupiter in home sign Sagittarius and Saturn in home sign Capricorn. Jupiter encourages you to travel, get more education or experience, and to expand some area of your life. Saturn asks to be dependable and to work on long-range projects that can help you in the future, Leo and Virgo. As times change.
There’s a contrary vibe in the Skywatch this morning. Fickle Mercury lines up in a square to rebellious and often contrary Uranus at 10:06 am PDT. Let this marker go by before you tackle anything difficult.
A bit of relief follows as the Moon sextiles Uranus at 10:11 am creating some space for compromise and better solutions. And that’s it.
Clear astrological skies follow and continue for the rest of the day and night, although the square’s energy will keep some folks up in the air thinking about changes and how to react for the rest of Friday’s working hours.
As times change.
Oppositions. And caution lights.
Things might not go as planned today. A Full Moon (which means the Sun and Moon are lined up opposite each other) in unpredictable and contrary Aquarius, exact at 5:29 am PDT this morning fires up the emotional and perhaps challenging side of everyone around your home or office.
Part of the reason for any challenging reactions you get today comes from the Moon opposing superficial Venus at 6:16 am, and later there’s a more challenging opposition to feisty Mars at 6:02 pm. Luna then turns Void of Course until she enters indecisive Pisces at 8:49 pm Thursday night.
Caution lights remain up however as Mercury walks into a square to eccentric Uranus which will be exact Friday morning. Problems with computers, cars, and phones - ruled by Uranus - are all more likely tonight and tomorrow.
