Astrology Forecast for the Week of August 23, 2021 – August 29, 2021

The astrology forecast for August 23, 2021 – August 29, 2021, features only three aspects for the week – Venus trine Saturn, Mercury oppose Neptune, and Mercury trine Pluto.

A curious thing happens with the week’s energy, and it’s common with how events occur in the real world.

Have you ever made a decision about an issue in your life or set a boundary, and then experienced self-doubt?

Self-doubt may easily occur this week, with Venus trine Saturn occurring on Monday, followed by Mercury opposing Neptune on Tuesday. So, stay on guard!

The good news is that if you hang in there and stick to your guns, Thursday will prove to be enlightening, and some of you may have an ‘a-ha’ moment or two as Mercury trines Pluto.

So, get out your journals, pens (I recently got some bomb colored Tul pens) and get to work.  You may discover insights into yourself and others that could be a game changer.

Now, on with the forecast…

Monday, August 23, 2021

We start the week with a stabilizing trine between Venus and Saturn.  This aspect is sobering and opens up an opportunity for constructive growth in relationships. You will see your relationships realistically, and therefore, you can confront relationship issues that may be further complicated under other aspects. If you need to create boundaries without potential conflicts or hurt feelings, now would be the time to create them.

Tuesday, August 24, 2021

Whereas yesterday was a sobering and realistic day, today is anything but with Mercury opposing Neptune. So, take Monday’s guidance to heart. 

Mercury oppose Neptune is an ambiguous and unsettling aspect.  Try to communicate as clearly as possible, and only discuss issues of importance, and leave heavy hitting issues for a day with more constructive energies.  Take all information received today with a grain of salt, and make sure to verify information multiple times before making any major decision.  If something seems too good to be true, it probably is.  Avoid stressful situations, if possible.

Wednesday, August 25, 2021

On Wednesday, the Moon moves through energetic and feisty Aries.  You will notice an increase in energy, drive, and determination.  However, be cautious during the late morning hours, because people may get on your last nerve.  Avoid people who have a knack for pushing your buttons.

Thursday, August 26, 2021

The final aspect of the week happens on Thursday, when Mercury forms an insightful trine to Pluto. It’s an excellent day to dig deep into the inner parts of your soul and get in touch with your true feelings and motivations.  You may also want to spend some time alone trying to understand the world around you.

Friday, August 27, 2021

The Moon spends its first full day in earthy Taurus. It’s an excellent day to focus on self-care and personal pleasures. You may want to spend the day at the spa, get a mani and a pedi, get your hair done, or simply enjoy time at the pool (or hot tub if you live in the southern hemisphere). And, of course, a cheat meal may be a scrumptious plan – just make sure it’s decadent.  However, be on guard, this evening the Moon squares Saturn, and you may need to push away negative thoughts if they invade your head space.

Saturday, August 28, 2021

Expect the unexpected during the morning hours as the Moon conjoins unpredictable Uranus. You may act on impulse, but try to do so in situations that have little impact on your life. The energy will stabilize later in the day, as the Moon trines Mars in structured Virgo. Saturday evening may be a momentous date night, as the Moon sextiles romantic and dreamy Neptune.

Sunday, August 29, 2021

The Moon spends the morning hours finishing her monthly trip through Taurus and aspects Jupiter and Mercury. You will be in relatively good spirits and need to reach out and communicate with others. Perhaps, a lovely brunch or spending time with like-minded individuals at a coffee shop will do the trick. Expect a conversation filled and frenetic afternoon with the Moon moving into chatty Gemini.

Astrology Forecast for the Week of August 16, 2021 – August 22, 2021

The astrology forecast for the week of August 16, 2021 – August 22, 2021 features two sign changes (Venus and the Sun), four aspects (Mercury conjunct Mars, Sun oppose Jupiter, Mercury trine Uranus, and Mars trine Uranus), a Full Moon in Aquarius and Uranus turns retrograde in Taurus.

Whew, I may have carpal tunnel syndrome after listing the cosmic energy of the week. It’s going to be one hell of a busy week, that’s for sure.

Let’s dive right in…

Monday, August 16, 2021

The week begins with a sign change for Venus as she moves out of Virgo, the sign of her fall and into Libra, one of the two signs she rules.

While Venus is in Libra, you will seek fairness, balance, and equality in your relationships. If you feel your relationships are too one-sided, you should seek an even playing field.  Now, under other Venus placements, this may create more tension and anxiety because people have difficulty adjusting to new relationship dynamics, but Libra is tactful, diplomatic, and seeks accords. So, this is an opportune time to seek relationship changes and get the results you need.  Venus remains in Libra until September 10.

Tuesday, August 17, 2021

On Tuesday, the Moon moves through Sagittarius.  The morning hours may arrive with a side dose of brain fog, as the Moon squares confusing Neptune in Pisces. However, the clouds should clear as the Moon sextiles Jupiter and trines the Sun during the afternoon hours. This evening, do something you enjoy, and that uplifts your spirit.

Wednesday, August 18, 2021

Expect a high-energy day as Mercury conjoins Mars in Virgo. It’s an excellent day for mental activities and tasks that require lengthy mental focus.  Under this aspect, you will easily accomplish most of your pursuits.  However, there is a problematic side to Mercury-Mars that you should note.  Since Mercury rules the mouth, there is a tendency to speak one’s mind without filters. This could lead to tense conversations and possible defensive posturing from others.  So, make sure you put a watch on your tongue, because Mars doesn’t understand how to quit while ahead.

Thursday, August 19, 2021

Thursday is the highlight of the week, as the Sun opposes Jupiter. Now oppositions are usually aspects of tension and agitation, but how agitated could the cosmic Santa Claus get?  So, the bulk of the problematic aspects that involve Jupiter are minimized by his natural benevolence. Therefore, the only requirement for the Sun opposed to Jupiter, is to avoid excessiveness and attempt to contain its energy.

Sun in opposition to Jupiter is an aspect that fills you with self-confidence and provides you with the energy to pursue your goals. Therefore, you will engage with others easily and usually get what you want. Additionally, you will feel optimistic about the future, and your positive attitude will spread infectiously to those around you.  In opposition to Jupiter, the Sun also signifies that matters you have waited on to come to fruition will begin to manifest.

Later in the day, Uranus turns retrograde in Taurus.  This station will primarily affect people with planets around 11-17 degrees of the fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius). You will feel the urge to create change in your life, and there may be a feeling of restlessness when faced with the reality of your responsibilities.  Try to manage your ambivalence by finding the middle ground between your duties and your desire to try new things.

Friday, August 20, 2021

On Friday, we have an exciting trine between Mercury in Virgo and Uranus in Taurus. Since Uranus recently stationed retrograde on Thursday, this aspect may be more potent than it normally is, so pay attention to the events of the day more closely than you normally would.

Mercury trine Uranus electrifies the mind and gets it going. You may find a solution to problems that you have failed to resolve with conventional solutions. It’s an excellent day to break your usual routine and experience new things – this could be a new restaurant, new activity, or even a new genre of music. Opening to possibilities and new experiences is essential while this aspect is active. Further, your intuition will be off the chains, so pay attention to your gut instincts.

Saturday, August 21, 2021

The Moon moves through social Aquarius throughout the day on Saturday. It’s a fantastic day to spend time with friends and reach out to your social circle. Connections with others will prove to be important.

Sunday, August 22, 2021

Sunday is the biggest day of the week, astrologically speaking. Mars forms an energetic trine to Uranus, a Full Moon occurs in Aquarius, and the Sun moves out of Leo and into Virgo.

Let’s start with Mars trine Uranus.

Mars trine Uranus is an aspect of breaking free of conventional norms and taking a risk. As such, your inhibitions will be lowered, and you will have plenty of energy to embark on new adventures, goals, and activities. So if you have felt hesitant about doing something (and hopefully it’s legal), afraid, or too cautious to make a move, now is the time to do it.

Next up, you may feel a bit of DeJa’Vu, because this is our second Full Moon in Aquarius this year. So, we get the opportunity to run this one back.

This Full Moon cycle is excellent for breaking through stagnant situations (especially Karmic ones), developing better friendships, expanding your social circle, and opening new experiences. In addition, the Full Moon joins forces with Jupiter to provide some extra goodness with a cherry on top.

Later on Sunday, the Sun moves out of Leo and into Virgo.  Virgo is an earth sign concerned with the physical world, natural laws, and how the real world works.  Therefore, Virgo is associated with jobs, tasks, responsibilities, and rituals.

In the ancient world, one of the chief associations of Virgo was its rulership over servants. Although we are not servants in a technical sense, we should take care of ourselves, manage our lives, and be productive members of society. So, while we are in Virgo season, we must look at the areas of our lives that need management, repairs, and nurture the areas that need it.  Making our lives more efficient helps us access the positive dimensions of the sign, and in doing so, we gain control and mastery over day-to-day living.

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast and Horoscopes for Week of August 9, 2021 – August 15, 2021

The astrology forecast for the week of August 9, 2021 – August 15, 2021, features three aspects (Venus square Neptune, Mercury oppose Jupiter, and Venus trine Pluto) and a sign change for Mercury.

One thing to note is that all cosmic energy takes place between Monday and Wednesday, and then the rest of the week is just lunar activity.

Let’s dive in…

Monday, August 9, 2021

The week begins with Venus opposing Neptune in Pisces. If you have too many expectations or your relationships are rooted in fantasy rather than reality, difficulties may surface. You may also feel let down, disappointed, or outright deceived by your partner(s). It would help if you stayed away from victim mindsets, because it may lead to emotional manipulation or controlling behavior. Boundaries may be necessary, but try not to put too many demands on your relationships, especially if you are frustrated. Instead, it’s best to acknowledge your feelings and wait until your emotions do not lead to acting hastily. If you are currently single, avoid starting a new relationship at the beginning of the week.

Tuesday, August 10, 2021

Although the Venus oppose Neptune aspect peaked yesterday, some residual gunk may linger on Tuesday. However, the clouds should part later in the day as Mercury opposes beneficial Jupiter before he leaves the sign of Leo.

Now since this aspect is an opposition, there are a few things to watch out for.  First, your ideas may be short on details, so you need to try to pause before taking a risk. Second, try not to go ‘too’ overboard. A little restraint is necessary.

The good news is your temperament should be optimistic. It’s a great day for business transactions, negotiations, and planning.  If your plans are well-thought-out, they should prove successful.

Wednesday, August 11, 2021

Wednesday is the busiest day of the week, with Mercury moving out of bombastic Leo and into orderly Virgo and Venus forming a harmonious trine to Pluto in Capricorn.

First up, Mercury is in dignity, being the Virgo’s ruler, so he can offer resources in the part of your chart where Virgo is located.

While Mercury is in Virgo, the devil is in the details, and you will want plenty of them. It’s an excellent time to focus on activities that need precision and focus.  You can do this by organizing your space, making minor changes to your routine that make your life more efficient and manageable, and making strategic plans.  Additionally, since Virgo is the sign associated with health and well-being, it’s a great time for lifestyle changes.

Later in the evening, Venus forms a harmonious trine to Pluto. In the forecast for Monday, I said to hold off on making emotional decisions if you experience disappointments in relationships.  Well, Venus trine Pluto is an opportune time to do so.  Venus trine Pluto is persuasive, so you can get your views heard, and there is an increased likelihood that you will get the results you want. However, regardless of the aspect, you will get better results with honey than vinegar. Try to reach an acceptable accord, if possible.

Thursday, August 12, 2021

The Moon moves through fair and diplomatic Libra.  This gives some added support to the Venus trine Pluto that occurred yesterday.  It’s an auspicious day to reach an agreement or formalize decisions. In addition, the Moon forms a lovely trine to Saturn, so business activities and responsibilities should flow smoothly.

Friday, August 13, 2021

The Moon continues her trip through Libra most of the day, but she does tangle with Pluto during the morning hours. Intense emotions may try to steal your joy, especially if you are dealing with people on a power trip. Later in the day, the Moon will trine joyful Jupiter, and your evening hours should be more uplifting.

Saturday, August 14, 2021

The Moon spends her first full day in Scorpio and forms a tense square to Saturn during the morning hours.  You may experience minor frustrations, but these should fade during the afternoon hours. Expect restless feelings during the evening hours as the Moon opposes Uranus.

Sunday, August 15, 2021

The Moon is still in Scorpio throughout the day on Sunday.  La Luna forms a lovely trine to Neptune during the morning hours, so it’s an excellent day to escape the real world and enjoy some downtime. Perhaps a movie or good music would be a wonderful way to recharge your batteries and prepare to seize another day.

See you next week!

The Astrology Forecast for the Week of August 2, 2021 – August 8, 2021

The astrology forecast for August 2, 2021 – August 8, 2021, features three planetary aspects (Sun oppose Saturn, Venus trine Uranus, and Sun square Uranus) and a New Moon in fiery Leo. So, it’s another challenging week (although better than the last few weeks), but manageable if you work with the energy.

Last month, Venus and Mars went through the wringer with Saturn and Uranus, and this month it’s Mercury and the Sun’s turn to bat. In August, the saving grace is Jupiter’s return to Aquarius provides a bit of protection that was not available in July.

Just a reminder, Saturn square Uranus is the major astrological aspect of 2021. So, this energy will continue to be triggered by planets making aspects to both juggernauts throughout the year. Saturn reflects the need for protective structures. Uranus signifies the need to shake up the system and usher in innovative ideas and visions that may be more helpful in everyday life. Since the two of them are currently square (obstacles), they tend to polarize one way or the other.  We experience extremes, and you will notice that alive and well in our political climate in 2021.  The key to working with this aspect is to give life to both sides of the polarity without tearing yourself in two.  Finding ways to bring new elements into your life that are progressive and more sustainable overall, while feeling like you are not uprooting your life in an unmanageable way is the objective.

This week, the Sun retriggers Saturn square Uranus, so you may feel anxious and agitated with situations that are going on in your life.  You may need to make changes in areas that have become too rigid, or you may need to build structures if things have gotten out of control. But, regardless of the side of the square you land on, finding balance will bring you the most meaning.

Monday, August 2, 2021

We start the week off with the Sun in Leo opposing Saturn in Aquarius. In astrology, these two planets dislike each other immensely, so frustrations are likely to occur whenever there is a hard aspect between them. You may go through feelings of isolation, alienation, and feeling like the weight of the world has landed on your shoulders.  As best as possible, try to meet your personal needs while taking care of your duties and responsibilities to others.

One thing you can bank on, with Sun opposing Saturn, is it will be a low-energy day. So, make sure you get plenty of rest, eat healthy foods, move your body, and take care of yourself. Despite what everyone else may think, your needs matter.

Tuesday, August 3, 2021

Tuesday features a lovely trine between Venus and Uranus, which may be some cosmic relief after the Sun opposes Saturn. Venus trine Uranus reflects the need to shake up relationships by adding excitement and a day of breaking away from routines. Tuesday may be a wonderful date night, going to a concert or movie, and since it is carnival season (all those local and state fairs in August), a bit of fun may be what you need. If you are single, hanging out with friends is always an option.  Venus trine Uranus may be the magic elixir that cures your boredom and breaks up daily monotony.

Wednesday, August 4, 2021

During the day, the Moon moves through talkative Gemini and forms a lovely trine to Jupiter in Aquarius.  It’s an excellent day to communicate with others, strategize, and even collaborate with associates. Anything you put your mind to will likely succeed.

Later in the evening, the Moon moves into Cancer. As such, you may feel more emotional than you usually do, so it’s the perfect time to distract yourself with a bit of pampering and comfort food.  Ice cream, anyone?

Thursday, August 5, 2021

The Moon continues to move through Cancer on Thursday and makes beneficial aspects to Mars and Uranus. Mars will boost your energy levels, and Uranus will bring pleasant surprises that may uplift your spirits.  It’s also a great day to focus on home, family, and those you love.

Friday, August 6, 2021

Buckle your seat belt because the Sun squares Uranus and turbulence is likely. With Uranus, you can always expect the unexpected, and situations may not go as planned, but being prepared for any snafus may curb your reactions.

On a deeper level, the Sun square Uranus reveals the areas of our lives that may need change. The harder you resist reforming your life, the more disruptive this aspect may be. Thus, it’s a favorable day to look at your life honestly and make changes that will help you in the long run, regardless of how challenging those changes may be. Conversely, avoiding change will only lead to further disruptions and disappointments.

Saturday, August 7, 2021

The weekend begins with the Moon moves through playful Leo, but Saturn threatens to rain on your parade. Therefore, you may experience minor frustrations throughout the day. Don’t let other people steal your joy—press in and press on.

Sunday, August 8, 2021

The New Moon this month occurs in fiery Leo on August 8. This New Moon is all about you. It’s an excellent New Moon to do magic and intention work that involves putting yourself in the best light. You can use this energy to get a new job, a promotion, start a new romantic relationship, or even begin new projects. So, during this New Moon, do you, and do it well.

See you next week!
