Information may be revealed about how to more effectively navigate this area of your life in a pragmatic way.
Saturn is square the Sun and Moon at this time as a reminder that commitment, perseverance and an ongoing discipline will lead to progress.

Full Moon in Aquarius

“You’re no different.You came into this world as an answer to a prayer, a solution to a need. If there was no need for you, you would never have shown up. The fact that you were born is the guarantee that you have a reason for being here. There is something you came to give- a gift, a talent, a message, a meaning. The world needs you to be you.”
Derek Rydell

On Tuesday the Moon waxes Full at 28 degrees of Aquarius.The Sabian symbol for this degree is, ” A Butterfly Emerging from a Chrysalis.” This is a powerful time along the path of personal destiny and a powerful time to more closely align your inner life with your actions in the outer world. Acknowledge progress about who you are becoming as you move towards a new level of increased authenticity. The symbol for the Sun is, “A Mermaid Has Climbed to a Rocky Shore of a Bleak Coast. She Awaits the Prince who will Bring her Immortality.” This symbol speaks about making dreams and visions real. It is a caution against projecting power or wishes on to others. It bodes well to build your strength for the journey consciously and avoid undermining it through unconscious patterning.

August ’13 Astrology

” We cannot wait for great visions from great people, for they are in short supply… It is up to us to light our own small fires in the darkness.” Charles Handy*

The Uranus/Mars square will be with us through the middle of the month. Under this influence it is best to exercise caution and have extra patience when dealing with others, when driving and when moving around in general. Avoid rushing and impulsive action.

Through the 9th the Sun makes a trine to Uranus. Under this beneficent influence look for doors that may be opening – doors to new, innovative ideas and solutions. Opportunities can abound.

The New Moon at 14 Leo is on the 6th. This is a powerful time for intention setting due to its proximity to the Jupiter/Uranus square. Planetary forces are supportive of transformation now.

From the 8th through the 17th Mercury squares Saturn. Keep communications clear. Work patiently with attention to detail as obstacles arise.

From the 11th through the 19th Mercury will be trining Uranus.This is the aspect of the visionary, the off the grid thinker, the magus who knows how to turn thoughts into reality. It can be a freeing aspect – helping to unblock areas of life that feel stagnant or stuck. Be open to innovative insights.

The Moon waxes full at 28 degrees of Aquarius strengthening the visionary energy which abounds all month.

The Jupiter/Uranus square is building through the month and exact on the 21st. This aspect can increase the desire for excitement and fun. It increases the willingness to experiment, take risks and face challenges. It can bring about significant change.Just a word to the wise – use the energy well. Avoid excess and keep moderation in the picture.

At the end of the month Venus will enter the Uranus/Pluto square. This can bring up challenges related to relationships, self esteem and finances. If you are looking for significant changes in these areas of life this would be a good time to work on them – keeping patience, clarity and moderation in the picture.

Sun in Leo, Full Moon in Aquarius

“And all the obstacles along the way
Sometimes may feel so tremendous
There are guides and spirits all along the way
Who will befriend us.” Van Morrison

Today the Sun enters Leo and the Moon waxes full shortly thereafter at 0 degrees of Aquarius. One of the Chandra symbols associated with this degree is,”A woman strolling in a garden. She is unaware that she is being watched by elves.” This symbol speaks of the magic which surrounds us in everyday life which we may miss due to an overemphasis of logic and reason.There are very subtle energies at play now and the skies continue to be busy with planetary activity. It is best to be open to inspiration, new perceptions and the mysteries of the unknown.
