“We don’t stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing.” Satchel Paige
There is a lot of planetary activity this week leading up to the New Moon at 21 Leo on Friday August 14.
Jupiter will enter the sign of Virgo on Tuesday the 11th and will transit through this sign for a year or so. In general it is a good time for thinking about service to the world and to others, for initiatives related to improving health and evolving your belief system. It is wise to watch out for a tendency to be overly critical or overly focused on perfection.
Thursday the ongoing Saturn/Pluto semi square is exact. This is a long term influence and concerns effecting change and transformation. There can be tension and frustration and it bodes well not to push too hard now but be patient and acknowledge incremental steps that represent progress in any change you have been trying to effect.
Mercury is moving up to an opposition to Neptune this week. This can bring confusion in communication and travel and fogginess in thinking. It will be helpful to be organized and prepared as you enter this week. Get details nailed down early.
The New Moon is Friday at 21 Leo. This is a good time to formulate goals for bringing more joy, happiness and creativity into your life. If there are children in your life set intentions about how you would like to relate to them in a more loving, joyful and playful way.
The Sun is the ruler of Leo and one of the Sabian symbols associated with this time is, “American Indians perform a ritual to the Sun.”
