Moon enters Capricorn.
At 20:38 the moon enters Capricorn.
Responsibilities build, calcify, become part of our routines. How much of it is actually necessary? How much of it is extra? There is an intuitive understanding of what must be done, and hope that it can be accomplished. Sacrifices are made to play the game.

Venus opposite Pluto 26º53’.
At 07:17 Venus in Cancer faces off with Pluto in Capricorn.
Gently acknowledging things that have been kept secret. An end of a relationship’s power dynamic. Fear both is and isn’t how we see ourselves. A reckoning with the shadow. Who is it that you’re jealous of and why is it your own self?
Wednesday, August 10
The moon enters Aquarius.
At 20:44 the moon enters Aquarius.
Laugh now, cry later. Rationalizing emotions, making light of the situation, trying to look at it from far away. However ultimately needing to confront pain or hurt feelings in order to move on.

Sun square Uranus 18º51’, Venus enters Leo, Mars sextile Neptune 24º56’.
At 14:53 the sun in Leo clashes with Uranus in Taurus.
If a cat is laying in the middle of a busy sidewalk, everyone will just have to walk around it. Very few people will have the patience, the courage, the je-ne-sais-quoi to stoop down, pick the cat up, and move it out of the way so that the flow of traffic can improve. Are they scared they’ll be scratched? Are they more concerned with making it to hot yoga oat matcha fig tree iphone on time? Are they just not thinking? Why does no one simply move the cat? Maybe someone heroic is going to move the lazy cat, for the sake of everyone’s ability to walk on the sidewalk.
At 20:30 Venus enters fixed fire sign Leo.
Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) are dealing with a lot of planetary mess right now (Mars, Saturn, Uranus, eclipses). Venus joining the fixed sign party is like a celebrity diva stopping by an office to perform for the CEOs while they’re all focused on trying to figure out what to do about their business going bankrupt due to supply chain shortages. At least people are going to care about their hairdo.
At 23:44 Mars in Taurus connects with Neptune in Pisces.
Slaying demons. An ability to dispel misunderstandings. Attacking the mirages. On a more shallow note, it’s giving “passion for fashion”. Beautiful engravings. Art from carving.
Friday, August 12
Full moon in Aquarius 19º21, the moon enters Pisces.
The moon is perfectly full at 03:35 as the moon in Aquarius opposes the sun in Leo.
Doing the wrong thing because it’s more authentic to who you are, and ultimately feeling better because of it. Taking accountability for your feelings. If you feel like that, then do something about it. Being comfortable with stepping out of line. Feeling like stepping out of line is necessary, somehow.
At 20:44 the moon enters Pisces.
Spirituality or a rich inner world is where we find reprieve from pain due to perceived social separation and upheaval. At the end of the day we’re all just one collective soul, man. PLUR, man.
Sunday, August 14
Sun opposite Saturn 21º54’, moon enters Aries, Mars trine Pluto 26º46’.
The sun in Leo faces off with Saturn in Aquarius at 19:10.
Letting go of responsibilities by taking responsibility for the right thing. Getting organized. Admitting what does not work. Making an exception. Priorities are put in order as a timeline is understood.
At 22:42 the moon enters cardinal fire sign Aries.
People are pumped up, ambitious, and ready to get started. The weekend kicks off again towards the end, after some rest or introversion. Whatever needs to happen is getting done quickly, and without any time for second thoughts.
At 23:28 Mars in Taurus harmonizes with Pluto in Capricorn.
It’s happening. It’s a lot. It’s happening fast. And nothing will be the same. But it’s like an exponential birth rate. A rapid domino effect.
