ASTROLOGY August 5 – August 12, 2017

ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 20)
No matter what’s going on around you, you have the sense that doors are open, opportunity is knocking and you’d be best to get down to business rather than pondering it. Your feet are on the ground and your wings are in the open sky. Set your compass and set sail. This is your time.

TAURUS (Apr 21 – May 20)
Venus, the planet of the lover, is opposed by the Moon, the planet of the mother. Differing parts of you have differing needs. It’s a delicate dance to bring them into harmony. Part of you would like to dance the light fantastic. Part of you needs serenity and safety. Honour both of them.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 21)
Mercury has moved into Virgo. Virgo at heart is the embodiment of a sense of natural order and natural justice. It’s not intellectual. It’s visceral. Your gut is telling you a whole lot more than your mind is. You are in a position of power. Enact it with all the intelligence at your disposal.

CANCER (June 22 – July 22)
Venus is in Cancer. She needs to remain available to delight. She is directly opposite the Moon, whose agenda is security and nourishment. Venusian delight isn’t always the most nourishing thing. Lunar nourishment doesn’t always have Venus’ delighted edge. Bring them both together.

LEO (July 23 – Aug 22)
There’s a planetary ‘Yod’, or ‘Finger of God’ pointing at the Sun and Mars in Leo. Neptune and the Moon are pointing at you. They are putting the hard word on you to wake up. Leos can get so lost in excitement that they miss seeing the significance of things. Open your heart wide.

VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22
Mercury is in Virgo. His message is for you to get access to your deepest vein of intelligence. It is in your body, not your mind. Mercury is being opposed by Neptune in Pisces, who is suggesting in no uncertain terms that intuition is oceanic and not to be ignored. Listen to both. Get wise.

LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 23)
If you separate yourself from others and try to be a lonesome cowboy/girl, you’ll get yourself into a mess. We need our peers. There’s no need to make things hard for yourself. If you see yourself doing so, stop it. You have access to truth. Acknowledge it and make good practical use of it.

SCORPIO (Oct 24 – Nov 21)
Stay curious. Have the eyes of a child. This will give you back the freshness of intelligence needed to soak up and understand what’s going on with the world around you. Ask questions. The world needs transformation. You know to start with yourself. Be playful, curious and unafraid.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
The mind is prone to putting a lot of value on fantasy. Saturn keeps pulling you back to reality. This is going to keep happening until you realise in your every cell, that reality is actually more beautiful than any imaginal thing you can wrap your neurons around. Stay real and you’ll fly.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
The Moon begins her week in Capricorn. She charges you up with emotion. She dances with Pluto, the planet of transformational power – and takes you deep. Venus opposes you and challenges you to remember to nurture delight. Life is presenting you with creative friction. Make use of it.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
As the Sun and Mars make their way through Leo, you can only look on in awe – at all the magic and mystery of the life you are living. It’s a miracle to be here in a body on planet earth. It’s so easy to overlook the bleeding obvious. Love and relationship are feeding you. Drink it up.

PISCES (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Mercury, over in viscerally intelligent Virgo, is sending you a clear message to come down into your senses and keep it real. Wandering in the stratosphere of your imagination is a beautiful thing. To be able to bring it all to earth, as creativity and expression, is an even more beautiful thing.
