Current Astro Events – Aug 7, ’15
We begin the week with the Sun, Venus, Jupiter and Mercury all in the fiery, proud sign of Leo. That a lot of sunny energy!
Jupiter (expansion) and Mercury (communication) are traveling together, creating a level of optimism and enthusiasm that is hard to resist. Take actions to make use of the bright ideas you have to share and don’t be afraid to reach out and connect with others – this is no time to be shy!
By Friday afternoon, Mercury moves into busy, detail-oriented Virgo, and suddenly reality may set in. Or, you may become focused practical ways you can implement the ideas you have. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself craving order or noticing things that are wrong. Virgo is analytical and very conscientious. This is the sign that likes things to be right!
The Saturn-Jupiter square is still active, creating a pull between freedom/expansion and safety/security. Examine your life to see where you’re in a rut or limiting yourself.
If you have any inclination to stretch, it’s the call of your Higher Self – the ego is the part of you holding the fear of moving beyond your familiar zone. I wish you the inspiration to make a move in order to satisfy your deep inner need for growth and evolution!
On Tuesday, Jupiter (expansion, freedom, Higher Truth) moves from dramatic Leo into Virgo, sign of humility and service for a year. What a switch in energy!
Jupiter is a big picture planet – it’s so focused on a positive outcome it doesn’t even think about details, which would bog it down (freedom, you know?!). Virgo lives for the minutiae of life, finding delight in getting every little thing in alignment. Tedious work is like oxygen for practical Virgo.
So imagine combining the best of these two energies to create a balance between optimism and taking care of business. Jupiter brings opportunities – and Virgo can show up with all the work done to be prepared.
Find ways to maximize Jupiter in helpful, productive Virgo. Being of service will benefit you in BIG ways with this combo.
Get ready for the New Moon in Leo that takes place on Friday, Aug 14th. Feel into what you want to create or call into your life and be prepared to take actions that will lead you there. More on that next week… :))
We have a few short windows of Moon Void of Course periods this week, which can affect business and planning, so be aware when taking actions for maximum effectiveness.
