Week 32, 2017

Astrological Week 32, 2017

August 6 - August 12, 2017

Sunday: Sun conjunct Mars in second decan Leo.

We are in the middle of summer this week.  The energy of today sets the tone for the rest of the week.  The Sun and Mars are still conjunct in fiery Leo turning up the heat.  This is a A LOT of fire energy so we do not want to get burned, and the best way to do utilize this fireball of energy is to open the heart.  Think of the heart as a conduit of heat and fire, which serves the purpose of transformation.  If the heart is open there will be no explosion.  In this zone of the Zodiac, both the Sun and Mars are activating our ability to succeed and thereby increase our confidence.  There is advancement, even if it isn't obvious, and we just need to keep in mind that in order to gain confidence Mars will break down little, pathetic egos.  However that looks depends upon you.  I suggest being proactive about it.

Monday: Moon Opposite Mars, Lunar Partial Eclipse in 15 degrees Aquarius

Get ready for the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse today.  Astronomically speaking, a lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes through the umbra (the shadow) of the Earth on the ecliptic plane.  What this means for us is that our subconscious will be totally out of reach!  It’s going to be extremely difficult for us to connect with that full moon power.  Because it is occurring in Aquarius, during the month of Leo, this means that our ego is trying to hide.  Also, Mars isn’t making things easier as it is adding more energy to this transit.  It could be a day that is like so full of ego that we wouldn’t know it if it hit us on the head!  So much suppression!  If you want to avoid swelling in the head, ankles or back, keep your ego in check and double check your actions before you make them!  There is bound to be tension if we forget about this transit.

This will ripple out for two weeks until the total solar eclipse on August 21.  Then the moon will block the earth and be shown everything that was hiding.  If we can manage to incorporate the above, we will receive perspectives on issues that are genius!  We need to prove that we are worth the great ideas, the great timing and the change of direction.

Tuesday: Mars in second decan Leo.

On Tuesday Mars begins to separate a little bit from the Sun, which will help the intense heat.  This leaves us focusing on teamwork, achievement, and taking action to be the leader in our work, life, or wherever that role is opening for you.  Time to step up and take some action, just don’t get onto a high horse about it.

Wednesday: Mercury in Virgo opposite Rx Neptune in Pisces.

Wednesday has a lot of “vacation” energy to it.  In this down time, and we are floating in Neptune's domain which is bringing up dreams about unfulfilled wishes and dreams (because it is retrograde).  But, Mercury is giving us the ideas we need to fix these unsatisfied and unfulfilled wishes.  Put them into implementation, the Mercury in Virgo helps us really manifest.

Thursday: Jupiter in Libra square Pluto and sextile Sun.

Jupiter is still helping us open and heal our heartbreaks now with an added boost of digging up old structures.  However, right there we have a nice transit helping us illuminate and burn out whatever comes up.  It could be like a vampire that hits the light of day and vanishes.

Friday: Venus in Cancer trine Neptune in Pisces

Celebrate!  There is a flow of positive energy today.  Good for recreating, play and joy.  Be careful to not drink too much, or at all.  With this transit, as fun as it can be, drugs or alcohol will just increase the illusion and make the Saturnian morning after that much more harsh.  Venus is in Cancer making us mushy and patriotic, while Neptune is at home in Pisces looking at what is missing.  So today the voids are filled, but if we want it to last we can’t do it with anything from the “outside”, it can only be non-attached love.  Do some bonding, and enjoy your friends.

Saturday: Saturn in Sagittarius trine Sun in Leo.

As always, Saturday is the cumulative energy of the week we just had.  Which means that it will all come back to us.  We are unloading burdens, and releasing old patterns.  It is one thing to work on the patterns, but in the end all we really need to do is get rid of them.  This week, we have been shown a lot about our patterns and we are in the eclipse season so today we get a boost of clear our psychic cache.

So, this week:

  • We are advancing toward our goals!
  • Activate the inner leader within!
  • Stay off the high horse.
  • Enjoy the “vacation” energy
  • We are healing more heartbreak.
  • No over-intoxication!
  • Do some bonding, and enjoy your friends.
  • Clear your psychic cache
  • Watch my retreat videos.
  • Watch my FREE Leo video.
  • Smell the Leo Essential Oil Blend.
  • Listen to my Leo playlist!

In my weekly write-ups, I refrain from using “astrological jargon” because it really doesn't make sense to people who know nothing about archetypal astrology.  But I do indicate my science in the footer.  General transit forecasts tell us what is going on in the world and how people are acting in general.  Detailed and specific forecasts are of course read in relation to your birth chart.  Meanwhile, if you want a more detailed explanation of where these energies are manifesting specifically for you, book a dash astrology session with me.
