For the week of August 21st thru the 28th, be sure to read your Rising Sign as well:
Aries is not having it this week, next week or the week after that. This may be when you finally discover the snooze button on social media, the unfriending tools in general, and the other ways of restoring your mental and emotional sanity. It is also where you come to recognize when it is no longer that helpful to keep pushing, especially when it just proves to be fruitless.
If you feel like you are just banging your Aries head against a brick wall, over and over again. You might need to stop. No matter how persistent or insistent you may be, and you’re not making any headway, probably the best thing to do is stop and re-strategize. Even if it means having to step away and leave the field to the enemy. For the time being. If you can find a way around the wall, or a way to dig beneath the wall, then so be it. But if you don’t have any other way around, you might have to wait for the guy with the ladder. It might be time to start thinking about gathering the tools, the allies and the plan. The higher the wall. The taller and mightier you will just have to be.
Taurus is still at the point of gathering its righteous indignation. They haven’t quite reached the tipping point. That point where you lock the doors and pull down the shades, and don’t answer the phone, and defrost the Sarah Lee cake. That will be later. You still have some lingering elements of compassion and understanding for the misguided and the woe-begotten. Which is why you find yourself doing your part to help out. You walk the neighbors dog, you sweep the other building’s stoop. You’re feeling extra generous and kind this week. Even if it is taking extra time to pick up Aunt Lucy’s groceries. That’s okay. You’re glad to do it! The issue is when it becomes expected or assumed that you should be taking care of this that and the other one, even if and when you don’t have the time or resources to do so. Give freely and with your heart open to the universe. And if things begin to feel uncomfortable, just be aware that at some point it might be time to start setting healthier boundaries.
What new initiatives finally feel like they are able to take off? How do you feel about what is coming out, and coming to light? If you are happy with the way things seem to be progressing, continue to look for creative ways to promote what you want to accomplish over the next week. If you are not so happy with the way things are proceeding, look for a way to improve the situation by looking at it from another perspective. Ask questions. Find out how other’s perceive the problem. And then maybe just sit on it. Avoid distractions for a day or two. Your ruling planet, Mercury, is strong, clever, and insightful right now. And ideas could just flash in your mind if you allow them to. But that would require turning down the noise and tuning in. And then figure out the puzzle, and the best way to put all the pieces together. Sometimes the best way to solve a quandary or find the best solution is to just sleep on it. And then decide.
You are ready, willing and able. In fact you could be feeling pretty gung ho. So why can’t you seem to get everyone else on board? What’s all the hesitation about? Why the delays? This week Cancer is wearing their heart on their sleeve. More than happy to give freely and generously, Venus is stirring the heart strings, and bringing a little extra warmth and gratification into your life. Home, family, closing the tribal circle could bring a lot of gratification. Go with it. Your heart is growing an extra few sizes this week, as you fantasize about what could or should be. Don’t worry about anyone else’s hesitation. It will soon become evident what is slowly and languorously simmering beneath the surface. There could be some interesting and intense turning points over the next few weeks. In the mean time enjoy the wonders of beauty and nature that surrounds; and allow yourself to connect with your dreams and dare to be enchanted. The rest will work its way out, in its own time, in its own way.
The Sun enters Virgo this week, and brings Leo along for the ride. It could be feeling like it’s time to be getting down to business. Get yourself organized. Create some sort of schedule and pay better attention to your routines. Make some sense of the insensible, if it is at all possible. What would a realistic and manageable plan look like for you these days? Virgo is a sign of preparation. Like the busy ant gathering the foods from the harvest and loading up for the months ahead. Or the creatures intent on working on their burrows; and creating order and healthy habits that will serve you well. It is also the time of year for Leo to find a way to make any new projects or initiatives more viable and sustainable. Or to make a creative idea a closer reality. How can you further manifest your creative ideas? What tools do you need to put it together? How can you make it more purposeful? How can you make it a part of your new routine that is now evolving?
We are now entering your season as the Sun comes to join your ruling planet Mercury in your sign. The transition from Leo to Virgo could feel like you are taking a plan that you’ve been working on, and now putting it into practice. Taking the new creative ideas that have been distilling behind the scenes, and putting them into application. This all could be met with a surge of energetic enthusiasm this week. The few days after the weekend may seem on the one hand to just fly by in some ways, and feel like a long unwinding road that never ends in other ways. These days could also be filled with insight and flashes of genius. See if you can wrangle up a few of those genius ideas and apply them before they slip away. The element of newness can bring a whole new perspective that could feel illuminating and refreshing, and open you up to possibilities that you might not have even considered previously. In order to make the most of it, allow yourself to be flexible and open. A sudden shift could end up being fortuitous in the end.
Okay. You’re going to weigh everything before you jump into the fray. Is it useful? check. Does it cover all the important points? check. It is kind? check. At least for now. It would seem that your intent is not to shame anyone. You’re not quite at that point yet. It’s more about setting the record straight. And that you really do care. There may be a little righteousness thrown in for now. But you are also very aware of boundaries, and not stepping over the line. Unless you need to. Maybe just a little. Provided you don’t offend the ones that you care about. There is something of a dance that is taking place, that will work its way out over the next few weeks. This is when your diplomatic skills are going to be sparring with your debating expertise. This week you are more likely to lean in on the whole loving kindness and compassionate understanding wing. But only up to a point. You’re not going to be the first one to step over the line. But as soon as someone else does, there are no holds barred. There’s this whole other side of Libra that we don’t often see.
Scorpio has this way of waiting on the sidelines. They’ll easily bide their time, watching as everyone else puts in their two cents, quibbling about this, that and the other thing. That’s because Scorpio likes to wait for the right time before they take action. One part of you wants to take action right away. Another part of you sees the wisdom in waiting. However you don’t want to internalize all of that passion and intensity. If you keep holding it in, you’re only going to explode. And the problem is, there may not be a good time to act right now! Should you go or should you stay? Should you speak up, or should you wait? That push/pull could be exasperating after a while. If in doubt, look for alternative ways to get it all out of your system, and do wait it out. Go for a long walk. Exercise. Organize your work space. Do not feed the lingering doubts and fears. They’ll just give you heartburn and a headache. Gather your allies, and prepare the field, knowing that there will be a better time to take action later on.
While feisty and impatient Mars is slowing for its retrograde station in September, Jupiter, your ruling planet, is slowing for its direct motion! And once Sagittarius gets in gear, there will be no stopping you. But you need to have a plan in place first, and you don’t want to leap into things before you are ready. The first order of business, is to re-check your motives. When all is said and done, and you are looking back at this moment in time, how do you want to be remembered, and what do you want to be remembered for? Things could still get heated up over the next few months. And we could all be inclined to say things that we may later regret. Choose your battles wisely. And make them equal to who you are as a person. What are those things that are actually worth standing up for and fighting for when your back is against the wall? What are the principles that you want to stand for and be known for in the end? So what is going to be your guiding light?
We’re all feeling a little righteous these days. All the more so as we move into the months ahead. It could feel like you are being challenged at every turn though, now that Mars will be square your ruling planet Saturn for the next 6 weeks. In times of uncertainty, it is all you can do to make sense of what appears to be insensible. To find the purpose, the reason, the answers to what is going on. To have some sort of plan of action. But when everything that you stand for seems to be coming into question, it’s all you can do to hold down the fort. Keeping it real, keeping it steady, is the job of Capricorn. Therefore, focus on the facts. Make them clear. Make them decisive. Especially for yourself. The more sure you are about where you stand and what you stand for, the firmer you will be. And even in the face of extraordinary pressure. Even in the middle of a raging storm, like a towering mountain with a broad foundation, you will remain strong.
On the one hand it could feel like things are happening very quickly. And yet, on the other hand, even though it feels like you are being pressured to take action, there’s still a part of you that is not quite so sure. Maybe there’s a little self-doubt and fear that holds you back. Or maybe it really isn’t quite the right time yet. Sometimes it is wisdom, not cowardice, to hold back and wait for just the right moment. Your time will come. In the mean time, look closer to home. Take advantage of that Mercury/Uranus trine that’s lighting up your personal environment. Ideas could just flash into your mind like so much fodder and kindling. Pay attention because ideas could pop in and out of your head really quickly, and you will want to take advantage of them. Your creative juices are simmering, and any changes, or finishing touches you’ve been wanting to make around the house will probably be easier to do so this week than at some other time.
Watch that you don’t overdo things this week. The inclination towards over-indulgence will be particularly treacherous. So probably not the best time to go for those big ticket items, or stock up on the tubs of ice cream. However this is a good week for meeting and greeting, and to whatever extent you can, entertaining. This could actually end up being a little distracting. However it could also be very rewarding. You are feeling generous of heart and spirit this week, and the good deeds you do will be well rewarded in the end. People will take note. And your kindness will not be forgotten. But more importantly are the feelings of compassion and unconditional love that arise so easily and spontaneously. These will tide you over any sketchier encounters you may have to face later on. So setting the tone this week will make all the difference. Loving kindness wins the day. And the week.
ॐ Namasté - Blessings!
