New & Unusual Directions — Forecast for Aug. 26th – Sept. 1st


This week’s headline items: the Uranus station ends on Monday; the Balsamic Moon phase starts on Tuesday morning; Mercury changes signs from Leo to Virgo on Thursday early morning; and the New Moon in Virgo becomes exact on Friday morning.

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Tuesday early morning (for 15 hours), Wednesday evening (just under 24 hours), and Saturday early morning (roughly 14.5 hours).


Now for this week’s Forecast…


Monday, August 26th:

Monday, the Moon remains in protective, nurturing Cancer all day. With this Moon placement, we are more sensitive to what people say and therefore our feelings are more easily hurt — so be kind to yourself and others. Self-Care is key until Tuesday evening 😉

Emotional safety is important to us as well; we like connecting to the familiar and we enjoy nurturing ourselves and others — home and family call to us, for instance. Make sure though, that your glass is filled before letting others drink from it, otherwise you might start to feel drained and resentful.

Monday: Uranus resumes its normal pace through the sky, ending its station. What has come up in the last four weeks around radical change, personal freedom, and needing to individuate? How are you doing at honoring your own individuality?

Monday very early morning, we are invited to make adjustments and (as best as we can) find creative solutions to seemingly insoluble situations. Make space both for healing around anger or self-identity and for taking care of emotional or family issues.

Monday early morning, brings an opportunity to connect to family (or friends that feel like family) and create breakthroughs around things that we enjoy through our five senses (e.g. food). This may also be a good time to find a unique or global approach on financial matters that bring us a sense of emotional security.

Monday late morning, a harmonious Venus/Uranus aspect becomes exact at 11:38am EDT. We started to feel this aspect from last week, Friday evening (Aug. 23rd) on; it will remain strong until this Wednesday (Aug. 28th). This aspect helps us to embrace all that is new and unusual in romance and finance. We are ready to experiment — but not to commit. We have an offbeat, pleasant attitude and people are more willing to socialize.

This is an especially good time for financial undertakings involving any of the following: technology and the internet; metaphysics; the arts; group activities. We lose our fear of taking risks at this time, this could be a good couple of days for the stock market indexes…or at the very least, an unpredictable one 🙂

Do you have your Ascendent, Career Point (or any personal planets) in 3-7 degrees of Virgo, Taurus, or Capricorn? If so, you will be most blessed by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus, Libra or Aquarius (Venus is the ruler of Taurus and Libra; Uranus rules Aquarius).

Monday early evening, we may experience authoritarian or rigid attitudes, both toward and from others. This could create some tension or oppositional behaviors — so, as best you can, remain flexible and practice self-care, doing your best to take care of your emotional and physical body — that way, you’ll remain able to stay grounded in reality.

Monday evening, requires some inner adjustments. We feel uneasy or awkward and need to make a choice, one that demands we develop inner awareness around two very different urges: on the one hand, the desire to expand our horizons and learn more about life, other cultures, religions, etc. — and on the other hand, the need to nurture ourselves and stay in touch with our feeling body.

Monday late evening, we are in a state of “flow” and emotional connection to others; spiritual and…
