Empower Yourself & Others — Forecast for August 10th-16th


This week’s headline items: the last Quarter Moon in Taurus becomes exact on Tuesday early afternoon; on Saturday late morning, Uranus comes to a halt and begins its 5-month Retrograde phase, and the Balsamic Moon phase begins as well.


There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Wednesday early morning (for almost 6 hours), Friday morning (for a little over 12 hours), and Sunday evening (for a little over 5.5 hours).


Before we get to this week’s forecast, I’d like to mention:

Now, this week’s Forecast…


Monday, Aug. 10th:

Monday, the Moon remains in steady, peaceful Taurus all day. It will journey there until Wednesday morning. We love all physical comforts, prefer consistency, and would rather stick with what we know works well.

In other words: change is not our favorite thing and “rushing things” goes against our grain. What is our favorite thing for the next two days? It’s probably, slowing down and getting in touch with whatever delights our senses 😉 This Moon placement starts the build up towards the last Quarter Moon (exact Tuesday early afternoon).

Monday morning, a challenging Mercury/Uranus aspect becomes exact at 8:52am EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from last week Saturday evening (Aug 8th) on; and it will remain strong until this Tuesday evening. This aspect creates some tension in our lives; we may feel anxious or stressed by a situation involving financial stability, personal creativity, or self-expression.

We’ll likely want to think outside the box. We may also want to make some changes to a life situation or heart connection that no longer fits. Again: We are being called to play a bigger game and may feel overwhelmed by what it all means.

Our minds may prefer things to be joyful, fun, playful, and expressive — but at the same time we feel a great desire for progress and breakthroughs. The tension between these two desires could leave us feeling irritable, mainly because we also tend to take things quite personally right now; the best way to manage this is to channel some of that nervous irritable energy into constructive pursuits.

Since there’s a tendency right now to challenge established thought, or play devil’s advocate, it also helps to get in touch with our inner truth. Use your breath to turn any fear into excitement — and let yourself drop into your heart.

Expect the unexpected, plan on disruption, revelation and breakthroughs — during this transit, the best mind is an open mind. As best as you can, go with the flow, staying open to the new and unexpectedly different. Could you allow whatever is happening to stimulate new approaches?

As you can perhaps imagine, this is not a time to make major decisions, especially if they are hasty 😉 You can think of this as “reorganizing” time for the mind, like moving your furniture around.  If you feel yourself resisting the reshuffle, do your best to relax — and maybe even sit back and enjoy the show.

And as always, if all else fails, take it one moment at a time… Rather than jumping to conclusions, get grounded in the here and now — bringing awareness to your breath (or body) is a good way to do this.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or any personal planets) in 7-14 degrees of  Leo, Taurus,  Aquarius, or Scorpio? If so, you will be more affected by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini, Virgo, or Aquarius (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo; and Uranus rules Aquarius).

Monday evening, if possible, connect with people that can support your projects on a practical level, and share with them what you have going on

Monday late evening, we are invited to make some adjustments in our lives. As best as you can, find creative solutions to…
