If we’re at the end of August, can Fall be far behind? Nope, but for now we can enjoy warm summer days and last minute fun in the Sun moments before we return to our regular work/school schedules. Friday the Moon moves into fun and freedom loving Sagittarius at 3:50 AM. Boasting only one positive aspect, Friday is a one star day, Saturday is a three star day while Sunday is a four star day with a change of sign to business oriented Capricorn. Taking a little extra time for self-care before you begin your weekend activities might give you that winning edge, so pencil in some yoga, aromatherapy, meditation, etc.
The Moon in Sagittarius fills us with a longing for foreign travel, freedom and the need to speak our truth–come what may. Shades of black, dark blue, mauve, gold, indigo or black give our energy fields a power boost equal to the opulence and expansion Sagittarians are so fond of. Emerald, lapis lazuli, opal, amethyst, obsidian or turquoise shades are ebullient enough to rise to the energetic requirements of Sagittarius, while copal, frankincense, dragon’s blood, or ginger essential oils or incense will work well for you whether you are meditating on advanced spiritual matters or intending to party all night!
The Moon in Capricorn is about structure, organization, financial prudence, ambition and practicality. Practical shades of gray, black, dark green, dark brown or blue work well with the black amber or black opal, jet, malachite, onyx, bloodstone or diamond crystals to lend you a distinguished air. Musk, patchouli, or gardenia or mint essential oils and incense will help you stay calm under stress and refresh you after a long day.
Friday 24 August 2012 the Sun opposite Neptune at 5:33 AM casts doubts on creative projects, romantic attachments, entertainment matters or dealings with one’s children (Note: all times indicated in this blog are PDT); you’ll do better to wait till Saturday morning to handle agreements or to get clear answers on matters of importance. Pushing to get the answers you want to hear will only backfire due to a square between the Moon and Neptune at 6:48; you’ll get clarity and make better choices if you wait until tomorrow morning around 10:00 AM. It ought to be obvious where your plans have bogged down when the First Quarter Moon (Moon square Sun) arrives. Thankfully the Universe gifts you with some clever ideas (or just an itch to be wild and crazy) via a Moon trine Uranus aspect at 5:11 PM. Write those ideas down and make good use of them to get yourself out of a jam!
Saturday 25 August 2012 the Sun in opposition to Jupiter at 3:25 AM may find your freedom, romantic or creative urges in opposition with rules, laws or the needs of significant others. You may be able to hammer out a compromise when the Moon trines Mercury at 10:44 AM–and without a whole lot of difficulty. You can also finish sorting out yesterday’s creativity/romantic challenges with lovers or your kids with this flowing Mercury aspect. The Moon sextile Saturn at 11:39 PM is an excellent time to organize yourself or plan your activities for the week ahead (note: the Moon will be in no nonsense Capricorn Monday morning–come prepared). The Moon is void of course until tomorrow morning, so take some time off and enjoy yourself before we put on our game faces and prepare to work!
Sunday 26 August 2012 inspirational services, creative work and meditation are favored when the Moon forms a sextile to Neptune at 9:52 AM. The Moon sextile to Mars at 10:21 AM gives you an added energy boost for whatever activities you may have cooking early in the day. Make note of intuitive prompts and put some wheels under them when the Moon trines the Sun at 1:50 PM. Take time out for meditation, law of attraction or visualization work and empower your goals when the Moon conjoins Pluto at 7:05 PM. Squirrely or difficult personalities may wear out their welcome when the Moon squares Uranus at 8:19 PM; you might want to plan a quiet evening at home and thus avoid the fireworks.
