Experience A New Depth of Intimacy


This week’s headline items: Mercury changes signs from Leo to Virgo on Wednesday; Uranus’ Station intensifies on Thursday; it is time to start taking actions on our New Moon intentions on Friday; on Sunday, the First Quarter Moon in Scorpio becomes exact.

There will be four Moon VoC phases this week: Monday morning (for 2.5 hours); Wednesday morning (for almost 9 hours); Friday late afternoon (for almost 3.5 hours) and Sunday late evening (for a brief 7 minutes).


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

I had an amazing Interview with my dear friend Michelle Leduc Catlin (a Health Freedom Blog Writer & Podcast Host) for my Interview Series: How to Deal with Uncertainty & Change, Episode Four. If you are able to watch this 50-minute Interview, please do. I highly recommend it! ==> click here to watch!

We talked about so many amazing things, that could truly be helpful to you, if you are experiencing frustration, anger, health issues, or a disconnect with the world around you ==> click here to watch


Now, this week’s Forecast…


Monday, August 9th:

Monday, the Moon remains in fun and attention-loving Leo until 10:56am EDT. We may lack objectivity and struggle with backing down or compromising. We all love to be admired — or at the very least acknowledged — for our greatness 🙂

So hand out some compliments — let people know how proud you are of them, tell them how much you love them. Come from the heart in this and all other things… be honest and authentic, as best you can. Fun, games and romance are a big part of this energy as well. You might also enjoy spending time with little ones.

If there are no “outer children” around, how about getting in touch with your “inner child” — it’s definitely easier for the next two days. What are you most grateful for today? What would be heaps and heaps of fun? What would be so much fun, you let out a tiny squeak, just thinking of it?

Monday before 8:23am or after 10:56am EDT: If you haven’t set your New Moon Intentions yet, there is still time! You have until 9:50am EDT tomorrow (Tuesday). If possible, align them with the New Moon energies that I spoke about in my last video — feel free to watch it again if you are not sure anymore — click here to watch my video on the New Moon in Leo.

Monday very early morning, a somewhat challenging Mercury/Pluto aspect becomes exact at 3:03am EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from Sunday early morning (Aug 8th) on; and it will remain strong until Tuesday early morning. This aspect operates more on an internal level. We feel uneasy about something, awkward, and need to make a choice — so we need to develop inner awareness.

Our compulsive side may lead us down a path that evades rational understanding. Our judgments — of circumstances, ourselves, others — can be so extreme during this aspect that we can’t seem to make intelligent and consistent progress in our lives for the three days it is in effect.

As best as you can, strive to be more trusting, and less strict with yourself for these three days — and surrender to whatever you are experiencing right now… like everything else, it’s temporary. Flexibility and a playful attitude could be helpful too 😉

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 24-26 degrees of Leo or Capricorn? 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 Scorpio (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo; Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio).

Monday at 8:23am EDT, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for 2.5 hours until 10:56am EDT. Use this intuitive time to choose clearly when it comes to expanding your perspective around a cause or like-minded people. Do your best to find a balance between your need for heartfelt, joyful self-expression in the here and now, and for moving into an intellectually stimulating and inspirational future.

As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don’t start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Monday morning ahead of time.

Monday at 10:56am EDT, the Moon moves into detail-oriented, practical Virgo, where it will journey until Wednesday afternoon. We are generous with our time/services and we love to help others. We also have a fondness for science and anything that makes sense in our world — things and knowledge we can apply and use.

Health might also come into focus at this time. We notice the parts that make up the whole; this is a great time to see if our daily routines (eating, work, self-care, etc.) align with our long-term goals.

Monday evening, a Venus/Neptune opposition becomes exact at 8:20pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from last week Saturday morning (Aug 7th) on; and it will remain strong until Thursday morning. We are ready to dissolve anything that we valued in the past that no longer serves either ourselves or humanity.

Our relationships might feel confusing or disappointing, they might even be some of the things “dissolving” — but this is helping us get more connected with our inner knowingness, or our inner sensing of what feels “right”. Compassion may play a big role in our interactions.

This also might not be the best time to start a new relationship, as we have the tendency to idealize others, leading to disappointment down the line. As best as you can, find your inner balance with what’s real and what’s not… and allow others to be human, limitations and all 😉

Financially, we may want to invest in creative or spiritual endeavors that include others, but hold off on buying anything concrete or practical until after Aug. 12th.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 19-26 degrees of Virgo, Pisces, Gemini, or Sagittarius? Do you have an Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus, Libra or Pisces? If so, you will feel…
