Thursday, August 31

Quiet.

The Moon enters responsible Capricorn at 1:19 am PDT early this morning and sails out into calm waters.  Green lights are up for work or play.

Just remember to double check the details with Mercury now Retrograde.  This clever ruler of communications backs into creative Leo this morning and finishes off his Rx cycle in this fire sign on Sept 5.

The kiss of the day shows up at 7:06 pm when the Sun and Moon form a very comfortable trine in the heavens.  Here’s a good time to make a difficult call or to give your teenager some advice.

Quiet hours follow.  As times change.

 

Wednesday, August 30

Saddle up. Green lights are up on Wednesday as we have a nice series of positive markers in the Skywatch.

You might be a big grumpy as you start your day as the Moon meets/conjuncts serious Saturn at 7:32 am PDT.  But serious mood lifts, as the Moon sextiles optimistic Jupiter (ruler of Sagittarius) at 8:38 am.

Clear skies follow until the Moon makes a trine to brave Mars at 6:27 pm. Luna travels on to trine friendly Uranus at 9:42 pm setting up a lovely evening for a class and all social plans.

Upbeat.

Green lights.  The Moon travels through optimistic Sagittarius today which usually helps everyone see the glass as half full.  So, it’s a good day to sell yourself or ideas to higher ups.

The only difficult marker in the Skywatch appears at 3:01 pm PDT when the Moon squares dreamy Neptune. Be certain of your facts at this moment with Mercury Rx; adding an additional element of confusion.

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

Monday, August 28

Stick to routine this morning.  The Moon enters the unfocused Void of Course cycle at 2:38 am PDT and remains V/C until she enters optimistic Sagittarius at 12:48 pm.  Mercury Retrograde is liable to bite you when the Moon squares Mercury Rx at 4:41 pm.  Be certain to double-check the details then.  The

The payoff on Monday is a sweet kiss at 7:48 pm when the Moon trines loving Venus in the heavens. Trines blend the energies of the involved parties and usually bring out the best in the planets.

Squares, on the other hand, are stressful as both elements strive for recognition.  A big square shows up late Monday night as the Sun and Moon square at 1:13 am early Tuesday morning.  No fun in that one.  Call it early.

As times change.

 

If your birthday is this week (Aug 27- Sept 2)

your future looks bright, Virgo.

You are coming out of a difficult and confusing cycle as spacey Neptune has been sitting opposite your Sun for the last three years.  Now he moves on and leaves you in peace and with new strength to make this a banner year.

In a lovely twist of fate, both lucky Jupiter and dependable Saturn are both going to make positive connections to your Sun in the months ahead.  This is rare and a complete reversal of the unfocused time you have been living.

Accept all opportunities to travel, increase your education or experience in any way possible.  And keep your eyes on your future, Virgo.  What’s past is past.  Green lights are up in your astrological future.

THE WEEKEND: August 26-27

Mellow.  The big event in the Skywatch is Jupiter moving into a sextile to Saturn which is exact on Sunday and in full power on Saturday.  There’s no drive or push in a sextile; you have to take action.  The sextile says good things can happen when someone takes an opportunity to grow or expand in some way = Jupiter.  So, this is an excellent weekend to take the opportunity to start something new and beneficial in your life.  The Solar Eclipse in Leo also prompts you to move on, move ahead this week.  Tackle the hard part first thing on Saturday as the Moon enters Scorpio early Saturday morning and sextiles the Sun and Mercury at 9:29 am PDT.  Luna then sails out into quiet waters for the rest of the day and night.

The Jupiter-Saturn sextile becomes exact at 5:16 am early Sunday morning.  This is a peaceful aspect that will help you get through any difficult situations and be in full power all day and night Sunday.  The only other marker is a kiss:  Moon sextile Pluto at 11:08 am.  Quiet hours follow for the rest of the day and night.  As times change.
