FORECAST: Weekly Astrology August 12, 2019

We begin the week with as two major outer planets station.  The term “station” means the planet appears to be stationary for a brief period of time after a retrograde and before turning direct.  It is during the station that the influence is the most profound. Jupiter, which has been in retrograde motion since the middle of April, finally stations direct on Sunday and it begins its journey through the middle degrees of Sagittarius and ends its time in the sign that it rules towards the beginning of December.  All Sagitarrius’ have been under the influence of this largely beneficial orb. Jupiter will then work its way in Capricorn where it will join Saturn and Pluto eventually in 2020. The joining of these three influential planets at that time will represent a bold new beginning for all of us. If we are not well on our way towards a meaningful transition by that time, it is likely that we will see where the influence is playing out in each of our lives.  This signals a time of major reconstructive initiatives. We have traveled down a misguided road for too long and that which has been wrong will be reconstructed in a more positive configuration. The other planet that stations is Uranus, which will turn retrograde on the same day as Jupiter. Uranus is unpredictable, so pay attention to aspects and connections from inner planets to Uranus to understand the theme. Inner planets are triggers for an outer planet.  Keep an eye on Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars for direct connections. How does this impact you? Each of us will feel this theme, but we will each feel it differently. Where will you feel it?

Elsewhere we see a powerful conjunction in Leo.  By week’s end we’ll see the Sun, Venus, and Mars all closely aligned in the late degrees of Leo.  This lively collection of planets working together can be quite productive and animated. Mars demands action so expect to see some traction on projects and initiatives that are ramped up or currently underway.  With Venus involved we can expect the outcome to be largely harmonious and beneficial. Lastly, when the Sun enters the scene the whole situation is lit up with a big boost from our cosmic father. Mercury will form a harsh angle to Uranus as well this week so watch your words.  This is particularly true early in the week. While Uranus and Mercury can stimulate our senses and provide a marvelously vibrant creative time, the combination of the two can also erupt in an emotional outburst. With that in mind try to find the sweetest spot for a burst of energy.  This is largely a cerebral type of exchange so bear that in mind. Remember, that very aspect in astrology has potential; sometimes positive and sometimes not. We have free will and often we can shift the outcome to our favor with that foreknowledge. If that weren’t enough, we have a full Moon in Aquarius mid-week that will likely shed insight into our creative abilities.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): There will be a lot of tension between Uranus and Mercury this week so be prepared.  Children, creative projects, and budgetary topics could rise to the surface and come to a boil.  With this much unchanneled energy you might be surprised how events work out in your favor. Creativity rises out of crisis.                   

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Tread carefully this week when discussing domestic topics.  You and your partner might not see eye-to-eye on an approach you might be pursuing.  This kind of exchange can escalate quite quickly and without warning so prepare yourself accordingly with the right response.  You might also be able to witness a remarkable breakthrough that reveals a marvelous solution.                                                 

GEMINI (May 21-June 21): You may be surprised by a discrepancy or hidden information while reviewing documentation.  New information could come to the forefront that swiftly shifts your plans for a transition of an ongoing project.  You may also be surprised by a sudden shift of priorities and the news may deliver results you had not anticipated.        

CANCER (June 22-July 22): Money may be on your mind this week as three planets sit in that part of your life.  Conversations may spin out of control, especially if you are working on a team project of some nature.  This theme could also spell out a surprise that benefits you as well, so be open to possibilities.                                                                        

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Expect a lot of attention this week as the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Mars all gather in the fiery fixed sign.  Shifts may be evident in your occupation that come quite unexpectedly. Good news could be on the wind as the Sun and Venus form a perfect connection in the later degrees of Leo.       

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You may be feeling a lightening of a long burden this week as four inner planets enter into your transition sector.  New beginnings are likely and a goodbye to old ways may also be a signal that change is in the air. Look to education and travel (near or far) to provide an unexpected glimpse of what is looming.         

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): This should be an excellent week to gather with like-minded friends and co-workers to discuss group plans.  Any group can fall into this heading so stretch your imagination. Unanticipated news may come from an outside organization or, perhaps, even an elderly or distant relative.  New insights can tip the balance in your favor.       

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov 21): What do you see on the horizon in your career?  Are big things looming? Prepare for an active and vibrant time with your occupation as four planets gather in that part of your life.  Surprising input from your significant partner could benefit you plan and help to boost your profile, quite unexpectedly.                                    

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):  For the sign known for adventure and travel, this week bodes quite well for you Sagittarius.  With four supportive planets in fellow fire-sign, Leo could find you in your glory. Unanticipated events may unfold in your favor as you venture about.  Be aware of chance encounters and events that appear to be pure luck.                                                                               

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Train your focus on outside resources for support this week.  You may have a creative idea that needs a boost, or you might stumble upon a plan that holds great promise.  The presence of elderly relatives also brings into focus the kind of support you may receive. Large organizations are also likely to capture your attention.                          

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Friends and lovers are high on your list of fun and frivolity this week.  The Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars will be influencing your romantic interludes and connections.  Time to gather with those closest to you and relish in them. Watch for the unexpected in your home and family, though.  Throw a party at your place.                                                    

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your health and wellness may be the sole focus of your week ahead.  Perhaps you are on vacation and working out is much easier than usual.  With four influential inner planets in that area of your life you could gain quite a bit in the way of gifted inspiration.  Unexpected documents or communique could puzzle you.
