Astrology Forecast for the Week of August 29, 2022 – September 4, 2022

Jupiter retrograde

The astrology forecast for the week of August 29, 2022 through September 4, 2022 features two planetary aspects – Mars sextile Jupiter and Mercury oppose Jupiter.

After a dramatic month (and why should we expect anything less from Leo season), August ends with the cosmos slowing down, which will be a relief for many.

So, let’s get the show on the road and dive right in.

Cosmic Overview

This week, Jupiter is our major player, and he is currently retrograde in ambitious Aries.

Now, let me reassure you, Jupiter retrograde is not Mercury retrograde – not even close.  Jupiter rules the sign of Sagittarius and Pisces, neither of which are personal signs. So, our daily lives are not affected (unless Jupiter Rx aspects a personal planet, so watch for planets you have in the first 10 degrees of cardinal signs, which are Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn. After October 29th, the last 5 degrees of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces).  Instead, Jupiter has to do with big picture concerns.

In astrology, Jupiter is the Big Kahuna.  He is the great benefic – our cosmic Santa Claus.  He bestows gifts, wisdom, and is the personal luck generator of the horoscope.  Jupiter has been moving through fiery Aries, an ambitious sign that is highly competitive, is concerned with personal agenda, and loves to win for the pure glory of all the possibilities that arise from victory.  You know, to the victor goes the spoils!

While Jupiter is retrograde, he gives you the opportunity to review the goals and aspirations you’ve pursued since the beginning of May.  Are you happy with the direction you are headed in? Do you need to tweak your long-term objectives? Have you overlooked anything that may open more doors and opportunities?  Jupiter Rx lets you put the knowledge you’ve acquired to work for you.  In many ways, it’s like a four month “feel good” self-help seminar with all the amenities.  And who doesn’t want some of that?

Now, for the rub!

Mercury turns retrograde on September 9th.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, August 29, 2022

The Moon moves through relationship-oriented Libra.  She makes several aspects throughout the day to Mercury, Mars, and Jupiter.  It’s an excellent day to have productive conversations and develop strategies for both personal and relationship matters.  This evening is the perfect time for a date night or spending time with those you love.

Tuesday, August 30, 2022

The Moon continues to move through Libra and forms a beneficial trine to Saturn, the signs exalted ruler. Libra is also associated with law and legal matters. It is an excellent day to resolve any legal issues or wrap up legal related loose ends before Mercury goes retrograde on September 9th.  So, if you need to sign a contract or take any action, today is the perfect day to do it.

Wednesday, August 31, 2022

The Moon spends most of the morning hours void of course in Libra. Avoid making firm agreements or starting anything new until 1:11 PM EDT when the Moon moves into Scorpio.  Intense feelings may surface for the rest of the day.  Try to acknowledge and experience them, but don’t be reactive.

Thursday, September 1, 2022

Mars forms an opportunistic sextile to Jupiter in Aries. If you need some extra energy, then take advantage of the day, because energy levels should be high. Mars sextile Jupiter is spectacular for business matters and will help you achieve your goals. Anything that you begin at this time will likely be successful. Mars sextile Jupiter is also excellent for personal growth and leveling up.

Friday, September 2, 2022

Mercury opposes Jupiter on Friday evening. Mercury oppose Jupiter has a favorable outlook, and you likely will find yourself in good spirits, which is excellent if you have social plans for the evening. On the business front, Mercury oppose Jupiter is excellent for ironing out deals and negotiating. Just make sure you read all the fine print before signing the dotted line.

Saturday, September 3, 2022

The Moon moves through spirited Sagittarius. During the morning hours, the Moon will oppose Mars and later square the Sun. Be careful when interacting with others, because people will likely be on edge and easily triggered, especially if you hurt their ego. Try to be proactive and avoid people with an obvious chip on their shoulder.

Sunday, September 4, 2022

We close the week with the Moon still moving through Sagittarius, and it forms a tough aspect to Neptune. You may suffer from brain fog during the morning hours and have trouble getting on with your day. It’s not the best day to make major decisions.  The good news is that later in the day, the Moon trines Venus, which should bring peace and harmony into the evening hours.

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of August 22, 2022 – August 28, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of August 22, 2022 through August 28, 2022 features four major aspects (Mercury trine Pluto, Venus square Uranus, the Sun square Mars, and Venus oppose Saturn), two sign changes (The Sun moves into Virgo and Mercury moves into Libra), Uranus turns retrograde, and a New Moon in Virgo occurs on Saturday.

Lot’s of changes happen this week.  Let’s dive in!

Cosmic Overview

Each astrological season allows us to tap into energies that help us navigate our way through life. Over the last month, we have traveled through Leo season, which is about creativity, self-expression, self-understanding, and getting in touch with who we are.  This month, we move into the sign of Virgo, and although it’s not as glamorous or exciting as fiery Leo, it’s pivotal for self-development.

Virgo season is about life management. In the mystical Kabbalah, Virgo is called Elul, the month of Teshuvah. Teshuvah is the practice of reviewing the past year, recognizing the mistakes we’ve made, trying to do better in the future, and moving on.  The key is THE MOVING ON and managing your life in ways that serve your greater good. Also, since Virgo is a sign associated with health, it’s an auspicious time to get a checkup or being a health or exercise program.

Now, on with the forecast.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, August 22, 2022

We start the week off with the Sun moving into Virgo, which is given a boost by Mercury (the ruler of Virgo), forming a beneficial trine to Pluto.  Mercury trine Pluto helps us dig deep so we can take honesty inventory of our lives.  We can then make changes and transform our strategies into something useful and productive. If you seek inner answers to help you understand your life better, today is the day to do the work.

Tuesday, August 23, 2022

The Moon moves through watery Cancer.  The Moon in Cancer likes to be domestic.  It’s an excellent day to take care of household responsibilities, cook an amazing meal, or redecorate. However, be mindful that you may feel things more intensely than you ordinarily would. Practice self-care if you feel overwhelmed.

Wednesday, August 24, 2022

Uranus, the great awakener planet, turns retrograde in Taurus. Ordinarily, Uranus likes to shake up the system, tear down the status quo, and force change – for better or worse. When Uranus turns retrograde, he calms down in the outer world, and turns inward, reflecting a period for us to focus on inner changes or ways we can shake up our own world. This is an excellent time to review long-term goals, create new strategies, or modify your objectives.  Uranus remains retrograde until the beginning of 2023.

Thursday, August 25, 2022

Mercury moves out of Virgo and into Libra.  Many consider Mercury in Libra to be wishy washy or incapable of making decisions. And, although this may appear on the surface, Mercury in the sign of the scales needs to weigh the options and ideas of others so they can make informed decisions. It’s a great day to sign contracts, forge agreements, tend to legal matters, and work on unresolved relationship issues.  Just remember Mercury turns retrograde in Libra on September 9th.

Friday, August 26, 2022

The Moon spends the day void of course in Leo.  Avoid starting anything new or making any firm decisions until the Moon moves into Virgo at 8:25 PM EDT/5:25 PM PDT. Otherwise, nothing will come of the matters, and situations will fizzle out.

Saturday, August 27, 2022

It’s going to be a busy day, with Venus forming a tense square to Uranus and the Sun squaring Mars.  Relationship issues may surface during the early part of the day, which may prove problematic if you approach things with a stubborn mindset. To make matters more challenging, Venus square Uranus may feed into Sun square Mars, and you may butt heads with others and prideful ego issues may get in the way of rational thought. Try to be mindful and practice proactive behaviors.

Sunday, August 28, 2022

We close the week with Venus opposing Saturn. You may have trouble relating to the people around you, which could lead to feelings of loneliness. If you’ve been sacrificing your personal happiness to please others, then you may be forced to make changes so that you can get your own needs met. Try not to fall into self-pity, it’s a color that never looked good on anyone.

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of August 8, 2022 through August 14, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of August 8, 2022 through August 14, 2022 features five planetary aspects (Venus oppose Pluto, Sun square Uranus, Mars sextile Neptune, the Sun opposes Saturn, and Mars trine Pluto), a Full Moon in Aquarius and Venus moving out of Cancer and into Leo.

So, for the fourth week in a row, it’s going to be a busy week. Let’s dive in…

Cosmic Overview

Last week, Mars got tangled up in the ongoing Saturn square Uranus configuration. This week, it is the Sun whose up to bat. Whereas Mars is our ability to go out into the world and get what we want out of life, the Sun is our identity and our destiny.

Now, this is difficult energy, but every aspect has a purpose. In the case of Sun square Uranus and Sun oppose Saturn, the purpose is to get us to make the necessary changes in our lives, to get us back on the right path.

Of course, when our lives are running smoothly, who wants to make change?  However, when the world impinges itself upon us through daily frustrations, obstacles, and limitations, we notice where we need to make changes, where we need to build structure, and ultimately helps us (despite the difficulty) get back on our path.  Since we are working with the Sun, creating necessary change will ultimately help you experience fulfillment and joy.

Now, on with the forecast!

Daily Breakdown

Monday, August 8, 2022

We start the week off with the Moon void of course in Sagittarius. Try to avoid starting anything new or signing documents until the Moon moves into Capricorn at 2:39 PM EDT/10:39 AM PDT. Once the Moon moves into Capricorn, it’s an excellent time to tie up loose ends, focus on tasks that need completion, and tend to duties and responsibilities.

Tuesday, August 9, 2022

Venus in Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn. It’s time to get real about relationships, regardless of how painful and emotionally intense they may be. Conflicts in relationships may surface, and it’s best to avoid manipulative power struggles. Often Venus oppose Pluto will show you how you are being codependent in your relationships.  The key to working with this aspect is to accept the relationship dynamic for what it is – the good, the bad, and the ugly.  You can then make decisions about the relationship’s future, if need be. Govern yourself accordingly!

Wednesday, August 10, 2022

The Moon moves through Capricorn, and there is still residual energy from yesterday’s Venus-Pluto opposition.  It might be best to focus on your duties, obligations, and responsibilities, and try to push away intrusive negative or obsessive thoughts if they surface. This afternoon, the Moon moves into Aquarius, and it’s a perfect time to hang out with a close friend or someone you trust.

Thursday, August 11, 2022

On Thursday, the Full Moon occurs in the sign of Aquarius at 9:36 PM EDT/6:36 PM PDT. This Full Moon cycle is excellent for breaking through stagnant situations (especially karmic ones), developing better friendships, expanding your social circle, and opening yourself up to new experiences. Also, Venus moves into romantic Leo, and for the single people out there, you may find yourself attracted to someone new. For everyone else, you may start to feel romantically alive again, but don’t let your emotions go overboard, and try to let things manifest organically.

Friday, August 12, 2022

The Moon will be void of course in Aquarius during the early morning hours. Therefore, avoid starting anything new or making firm agreements until after 2:44 PM EDT/11:44 PM PDT, when the Moon will move into Pisces.  This evening is an excellent time to watch movies, explore the arts, or simply enjoy good music.  The Moon in Pisces is perfect for rest and relaxation, and after the intense energies of the past month, you deserve it.

Saturday, August 13, 2022

The Moon continues to move through Pisces on Saturday. Try to be as clear and precise as possible when communicating with others, because the Moon will oppose Mercury until mid-afternoon.  Later, Saturday evening, it’s an excellent time to do something outside the box and unconventional. Discovering and exploring new things is always recommended when the Moon sextiles Uranus. It’s also a good time to spend the evening with friends and other like-minded individuals.

Sunday, August 14, 2022

We close the week with the Sun opposing Saturn in Aquarius. The Sun oppose Saturn is a difficult aspect, because we often feel alone and at odds with the world around us. You may also feel that people are trying to hold you back or are trying to thwart you.  Ultimately, you may need to make compromises (big and small) to gain momentum again.

See you next week!
