FORECAST: Weekly Astrology August 17, 2020

We begin the week with Mercury in a trine to Mars.  This  harmonious connection bodes well for creative action and sharp exchanges.  Although a fast moving aspect, this particular connection does spark imagination and action, so it is best to act accordingly.  Closely aligned with a new Moon, this aspect is well suited for taking risks that are well calculated.  Risks are different things to different people in different circumstances, so only you know what feels right.  Follow your gut.  With the new Moon at the beginning of the week the prospect for a new beginning is likely and fortuitous.  When you add in Mercury and the bold Leo Sun, you have a combination that is ideal for taking chances that are calculated.  Mars drives the conversation and Mercury draws on impulse.  This is a short window of opportunity and you will likely feel the urge to act and do so if the setting seems right.   Where is that happening in your life?  Do you know?  Contact me at,

Shortly thereafter the Moon and Mercury move into Virgo where their tone is decidedly different.  While in Leo Mercury and the Moon tend to be overconfident and filled with bluster.  In Virgo, the tone is more that of service and humility.  Details, concerns, service and servitude are far more likely than when in Leo’s fiery boastful realm.  This is a great time to focus on projects that require concentration and attention to detail.  The only downside to this influence is the tendency to be overly critical and perfectionist.  If you have to have everything absolutely perfect you might waste a lot of time and render your projects useless as you wallow in trying to achieve perfection.  Perfection is unattainable in many aspects of life and you have to be able to have the discernment to know when to hold and when to fold.  Where will you feel it?  If you have questions about your own unique destiny contact me at,, or

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your ruling planet, Mars, isin a tense connection with Saturn in Capricorn this week.  Of course having your ruling planet moving through your sign is generally a good positive thing.  And this is no exception, however, Saturn demands results, so you may find that job you’ve been looking for lately.  The time is right.                                                     

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): There is a lot of potential unpredictability lingering in your life this week.  When you run that script through your head where do you see the action?  Travel and education are highly likely so bear that in mind.  You may also be coming up on a deadline that has you especially fired up and eager.                                                                                        

GEMINI (May 21-June 21): Mercury has just entered Virgo.  You and Virgo share Mercury as your ruling planet, so the vibe will be positive and fruitful.  Plans that involve your home and family may dominate the conversation.  With the Virgo influence you can be extra careful with details and facts.  The Sun is shining in the same area of your life.  Rejoice.                         

CANCER (June 22-July 22):  Venus continues to charm you this week, Cancer.  You’ll be happy for the added sugar in your life as your primary relationships may be causing you a bit of stress.  Remember that all associations are rife with conflict.  It is simply a matter of degree.  Ride this out and wait for the smoother times to arrive.             

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The Sun will soon be departing Leo and in its final foray in this the boldest of signs, you may be driven to complete something of importance.  The Sun stands in a harmonious connection to fiery Mars and travel and education may dominante your thought process this week.  Turn your focus towards self-improvement.                      

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Your ruling planet, Mercury has just entered Virgo so the time has come to speak.  Your abilities to communicate and parse information may be at an all time high.  If you can use your investigative skills to benefit your path you may find great results at the end of your search.  A creative rebirth may be in the offing.                        

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22):  Your friend Venus is sitting pretty in your career domain.  With that in mind, this should be a great week to focus on your occupation.  While a certain struggle may be unfolding in and around your home and family, you may be able to resolve many of the topics with renewed focus on your career.     

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov 21): Legal topics that require investigation are likely to populate your week.  Your drive may be centered on details and process.  Much can be discovered by delving into the details of the process.  You may find holes in the patterns and use this as an opportunity to repair and reprioritize.  Focus on the daily flow of work.                                                 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The primary focus for you this week will be financial.  Whether you are revising your holdings or cashing in on some on-time investments, your curiosity may be driven by the bottom line.  While you may be inclined to take risks, you would be wise to wait and see.  There is much at odds right now to make a call.                                                                                                                                    

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Saturn is driving you to address the right things in your life.  This is a matter of setting priorities and setting them responsibly.  It may be easy to fll into “usual” mode, but you would be wise to take the more conservative route during this time.  This may feel a little too familiar, but you are through the worst.                             

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):  You may feel a noticeable change in the air; almost as if something big is about to shift.  If you feel that then your instincts are right on the money.  Rather than jump to a conclusion or outcome, wait and see what options come your way that are worth entertaining.  You might change your course accordingly.                           

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t be fooled by a false sense of security.  It may be easy to be lulled into submission with Neptune in Pisces.  Wait and see what pieces shift in your world before acting out of haste.  Trouble with partners requires a certain finesse of character and you’d be wise to see everyone’s hand first.
