ASTROLOGY: August 4, – August 11, 2018

ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 20)
There’s a lot of listening to be done. If healing is to happen receptivity and intent is a huge first step. It doesn’t come naturally to let instinctive responses pass through without acting on them. The benefits are huge. Your heart will turn into the heart of a lion and you will feel newly free.

TAURUS (Apr 21 – May 20)
The waning Moon begins her week in Taurus. Because she passes directly in front of wildly unpredictable Uranus, you will find yourself being unusually moody for a day or two. As you peruse the state of the world, it’s becoming obvious there are changes to be heralded and made.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 21)
You are quietly making your way to a position of import and influence. You may not even be aware that this is going on. There’s a tiger in your tank that is bursting to show its colours and make some noise. The Leo Sun and your planet Mercury there too, are inspiring you behind the scenes.

CANCER (June 22 – July 22)
Normally when the Moon passes through Taurus, as she does this week, you would feel settled and supported; but as she does a dance with unpredictable Uranus, there is no such assurance. These are unpredictable times. If you need to feel grounded, spend time with like-minded friends.

LEO (July 23 – Aug 22)
Beware of all ideologies. Mars is in Aquarius triggering an outbreak of dogmatism. Ideals are cold, hard things. Humans are warm, soft things. Keep remembering the gorgeousness of human frailty and you won’t get sucked in. Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn are challenging you to keep it real.

VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22)
Venus is putting the final touches on her Virgo painting. The beauty of Virgo is nature. Virgo is a symbol of natural law. Exquisite, unique and always capable of igniting the feeling of awe, mother nature is your guru. Take yourself out to where you can experience these things and refuel.

LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 23)
Check your store of acorns. Is it full to the brim and overflowing or does it need shoring up? Your focus needs to be on identifying your resources. These can be physical, emotional, mental or spiritual. You are being encouraged to feel the ground beneath your feet. Soak in self-love.

SCORPIO (Oct 24 – Nov 21)
Jupiter is exactly half way through his transit of Scorpio. He is presently focussed on inspiring you to identify and articulate your deepest longings; those longings that need to be put into place for you to be able to smile blissfully even if there is a tempest brewing. Write your feelings down.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
On the surface this looks like a cruisy week for Centaurs. The fact that your guiding planetary light, Jupiter is cruising through Scorpio means that there is always going to be an emotional undercurrent. This undercurrent is a thread to your deeper feelings, so you’d best listen to it.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
The Leo Sun is helping you to get out of any mind-sets that are walling you in. When pure pragmatism is closing you down, rather than opening you up, it’s time to flick the switch of your imagination and your intuition. Both are readily on tap and eager to help. Invite them in.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Mars is now very much in your midst. Mars is the planetary incarnation of testosterone. He can be both very unruly and a lot of fun. He can veer into nosedives of destruction. He can inspire great, courageous adventuring. He may just be ready for seeing himself in the mirror of relationship.

PISCES (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
The more grounded you can stay, the more you will dance. Focus on simple, practical things. Refrain from anything other-worldly. Be more like Zorba the Greek than Gautama the Buddha. Celebrate. Be festive. Be unashamed. As you let go into life, so life will treat you generously.
