Friday, August 31.

Saddle up.  The Skywatch is stellar today for work or play.

Green lights are up as the Moon in earth-wise Taurus trines the Sun in practical Virgo at 9:42 am PDT suggesting an exceptionally good morning for important appointments and meetings.

Clear skies follow until evening hours when the Moon makes a comfortable sextile to creative and romantic Neptune at 10:33 pm.  Movies, music, art, dancing, and fishing all use Neptune’s energy well—take your pick.

Thursday, August 30

Get an early start.  Morning hours are the best of the day for important shopping and business.

Caution lights come on as the Moon squares feisty Mars at 4:04 pm PDT and then turns Void of Course until she enters Taurus at 6:30 pm.

Evening hours have two very different ideas in that the Moon meets rebellious and unpredictable Uranus at 10:50 pm but travels on to trine conservative and dependable Saturn at 11:17 pm, hopefully bringing your evening to a pleasant conclusion.

As times change.

Wednesday, August 29.

Something new?  The Moon in eager Aries sails out into calm seas Wednesday morning.

It’s a good time to tackle a new job or to start a new project as the Skywatch is clear and friendly—green lights are up for work or play.

A challenging moment appears in the heavens Wednesday night when the Moon squares compulsive Pluto at 9:53 pm PDT.  Keep talking if a problem comes up as the Moon will quickly travel on and trine persuasive Mercury at 10:02 pm increasing the chances of agreement and a compromise.

As times change.

Tuesday, August 28

A new deck of cards.  But don’t rush in.

The Moon sextiles Mars who is now direct in motion at 6:54 am PDT but then turns Void of Course until she enters fiery Aries at 9:35 am Tuesday morning.  Green lights come on at this moment as the Skywatch clears.

And you’re likely to find things moving along much better at the end of this month than at the beginning when Mercury and Mars were both Retrograde.

There’s just one hot spot, a quack in the Skywatch, appearing in the heavens at 2:37 pm when the Moon squares grumpy and cynical Saturn.  This is just a quick moment of doubt and maybe negative reactions from others.

Clears skies follow for the rest of the day and night.

As times change.

Mixed messages.

We’ve got some really good news in the Skywatch today as hasty Mars finally leaves his Retrograde cycle and resumes direct motion at 7:05 am PDT.  He’s been Rx since June 26, and that’s why you’ve had low energy over the past six weeks.

Morning hours are the best for priority calls and business as the Moon in psychic Pisces trines optimistic Jupiter at 7:25 am PDT and then sextiles powerful Pluto at 12:13 pm.  Double-check the details today as superficial Mercury squares dogmatic Jupiter at 10:31 pm Monday night.  This square causes some folks to inflate their opinions and advice with exaggerations and b.s.

Your best bet is to keep it simple Monday night.  As times change.

If your birthday is this week (August 26—September 1)

You have a stellar Solar Return, Virgo.  Innovative Uranus and realistic Saturn both make a most helpful trine to your Sun in this chart of your new year.

These trines create an Earth Grand Trine, which sets up a fabulous year for you in work and play.  Trines blend energies of the involved elements and will help you make more money and be more efficient and successful in your work in the months ahead.  Yes, yes, yes.

This is the only time in your life this has happened, and you won’t pass this way again, Virgo.   Best then to invest in yourself and to reach for the brass ring in whatever way possible.

Another blessing you have in your new SR is affectionate Venus in her home sign of Libra.

Many singles will find a loving partner with Venus in such a powerful sign this year—give yourself the chance to meet someone charming if you want a new relationship.

For the better, Virgo, times have changed.
