ASTROLOGY AUGUST 12 – AUGUST 9, 2017

ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 20)
The Moon is passing through. This will hit you with a few waves of emotion that will leave you wondering if you are coming or going. It will soon pass. Don’t take these tides of feeling too seriously. If you don’t tune in, you will make people defensive that don’t really need to be.

TAURUS (Apr 21 – May 20)
Venus is passing through the waters of Cancer. She will have you feeling acutely sensitive. If you are clumsy, she’ll have you behaving defensively. If you have your wits about you, she’ll have you loving those around you like there is no tomorrow. This is a good week for eking out truth.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 21)
The fact that you are having to navigate responsibility, could have you behaving with more rigidity than is normal or healthy. Rigidity and chaos – they are both unhealthy states. Snap yourself out of the idea that you have to be retentive. Stay loose, natural and playful. You are smart enough.

CANCER (June 22 – July 22)
Venus is in your midst. She is adding a whole new level of sensitivity to your daily equation. The moment you feel pushed from the outside by others who don’t quite understand, you will clam up. It’s only natural. When you are in the company of those who understand, you’ll flower.

LEO (July 23 – Aug 22)
The Sun and Mars are firing you up with energy, enthusiasm, passion and openness. It seems that the existential gates are open for you to take all this energy out into the world and play. Add sensitivity and pragmatism to the mix and you have all the ingredients for true wonderfulness.

VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22
Mercury is keeping you light on your feet. You know as well as anybody that the moment rigidity sets in there’s trouble. Keep exploring deep water. Explore the widening parameters of life’s capacity to deliver delight. Hunt beauty in the world around you. It’s closer than your nose.

LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 23)
Jupiter keeps widening the world of possibility; and Pluto and Venus keep making expansion feel like it’s slipping out of your hand. Tricky. Let life’s challenges come to you. You don’t have to aggressively go out after them. Deal with things as they come to you, not a moment before.

SCORPIO (Oct 24 – Nov 21)
Get grounded. It’s time to store some acorns, to get your foundations set – to send your roots down to where there’s plenty of love and nourishment. Shedding the old skin of conditioned behaviour is an on-going process. Let it happen effortlessly, by simply staying true to who you are.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
There’s a fine alignment of the planets going on for you right now. As Saturn has taught you to stay steady, so you are now able to juggle a more spectacular set of possibilities. Change is coming but it  isn’t flooring you. It’s an adventure that you can take in your stride. Trust your pride.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Life has put you in an interesting spot. It’s going to take courage to stay on track and find your way through. The Leo Sun is giving you open access to the big-heartedness and courage you require. Don’t let others’ defensiveness put you off. They are hiding their vulnerability. Take it easy.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
There’s not much holding together all the old habits that snag relationships. Habits that once held weight are becoming flimsy and easy to swat away. Uranus is very near the end of his journey through Aries. Turmoil will slowly turn to groundedness and surety over the next few months.

PISCES (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
The pressure to be what you think you ‘should’ be continues. The most radical move you could possibly make, is to ask this critical voice to step back and get out of the way. Whatever purpose it once served, is now over. Freedom, ease and personal responsibility are more relevant now.
