Weekend Stars and Tuesday’s Magical New Moon in Leo

Coming up is a dramatic, creative, warm and testy week all at once! Here’s a rundown of planetary activity this weekend through August 22nd, when the Sun moves out of the drama and into work-oriented Virgo.

August 15th Uranus Rx and Tuesday’s New Moon in Leo

Saturday, August 15th : Uranus goes retrograde as Moon conjuncts Venus in Cancer: Making the home comfortable and beautiful is a rewarding weekend activity, as is enjoying loved ones, but it’s easy for connections to miss, and things not to go as planned. Let it go.  Creative ideas pop up now and for a long time to come about how to build a new foundation.

The impact of Uranus going retrograde in Taurus is to break through stuck places within one, because at the same time, the moon conjunct Venus conjunct signals a time when a person can get strong within themselves, when their feelings and will and what they want to create can better align and make things happen. People go through a lot of strengthening personal changes from now until the end of the year. A symbolic turnaround for Western calendar users, Uranus goes direct on New Years Day, January 1st 2021. People move forward with renewed vigor.

Uranus Rx Guidance Message about how to resolve personal conflict: What’s done is done or fixed in place, and shutting the door on the past is the fastest way out of conflict with it. To tough anything out, to fight anything out, to believe in something greater than recovery, renewal, or peace, is to court an intensifying fight.

This is a time when people can recognize both their audience and their foes.

August 18th New Moon in Leo: Boom! It’s ground zero for an awful lot of action, communication, and nailing things down. Individuals with creative projects trying to get something done are running around like crazy. This time is full of connections that are like an electric jolt.

A great deal of joy could be had by things that develop this week. Celebrate communication: communicate to others about who you are; be positive and look on the bright side; now is when networks are strengthened and can grow!  (This message is for individuals; collectives like countries have different outcomes with the same energies.)

August 19th-20th, the Islamic New Year, is a great time to make a wish or do magic!  It helps you ascend to a state of higher productivity. Take the initiative and be prolific in your efforts!

August 22nd when the Sun goes into Virgo, the flames of August turn into action, and the work begins.

Enjoy all the planets’ lively communions this mid-August weekend, and like the Leo sun sign, enjoy and be your creative self in the days and weeks to come!
