FORECAST: Weekly Astrology August 24, 2020

A fairly complicated week lies ahead as we witness a series of trines, a few oppositions, and a square.   The most powerful and potentially upsetting connections occur with Mars and Saturn which will be standing in a square.  With Mars in Aries (its ruler) and Saturn in Capricorn (its ruler) we will be observing a power struggle.  Mars wants action and speed and is often reckless, whereas Saturn is slow, methodical and precise.  An appropriate analogy might be driving with the brakes on.  Mars drives and pushes, and Saturn resists and challenges.  While the results are understandably frustrating for those trying to accomplish things, the end result can be just the outcome needed or desired.  We might not realize it at the time but driving forward with haste can be a costly oversight of necessary details.  Saturn will slow the process down until the details are crisp and clear.  The best approach for coping with this bound-up tension is to simply relax and try not to force the flow of the stream.  You cannot paddle upstream under these conditions.     Where is that happening in your life?  Do you know?  Contact me at,

On a more positive note, Mercury will be in a harmonious trine to Uranus midweek.  Mercury and Uranus have a natural affinity for one another since their energy is largely cerebral and clever.  Mercury is quick and impulsive and Uranus is revolutionary and contrary.  Together these two planets can deliver an exciting change of events that tends to bode well in the long run.  We can see this then combined with a Mercury trine Jupiter alignment that delivers optimistic outcomes and pleasant happy endings.  News could be filled with sudden departures that is then met with a Venus Jupiter opposition. This opposition tends to present a deflated sense of purpose which can instill apathy and lethargy.  Because the week is so fraught with powerful planetary activity you might be wise to postpone major decisions until the planets have changed position.   Where will you feel it?  If you have questions about your own unique destiny contact me at,, or

ARIES (March 21-April 19): You may be jazzed with enthusiasm for a new job prospect this week.  Be careful, though, because Saturn will be squaring Mars and you may be chomping at the bit only to be let down or delayed in your pursuit.  Check your facts and references.  Back off and try again next week.                                                     

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your ruling planet, Venus will be standing in opposition to Pluto and conversations with your siblings may be a bit disappointing or disheartening.  Don’t despair as you may be able to find a new way to communicate that involves travel and a necessary distraction.  Look for the common ground and celebrate what you share.                                                                                        

GEMINI (May 21-June 21): Conversations that involve the home and family are likely to be lively and filled with sudden shifts.  A new beginning may be emerging that shows promise and intrigue.  Monetary issues may be daunting but temporary.  Act with caution and proceed with optimism.  Prepare for the unexpected with an eye for success.                        

CANCER (June 22-July 22):  Venus is your friend this week as she floats through Cancer.  While opposing Pluto, Venus may deliver you with heartfelt news regarding your relationship.  Challenges are likely but that is how you grow.  Step into the fray and find the best solution and accept it willingly.  Career action is positive.             

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your focus will likely be on financial matters this week as the Sun hovers in that area of your life.  Also consider reviewing your daily physical routine.  Your health may be a priority as you pivot to try and trim some weight and tighten up your resilience.  Small steps repeated can deliver significant results.                     

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The Sun is shining on Virgo and is joined by your ruling planet, Mercury.  Your attitude may be that of a willing helper in your daily pursuits.  Details, figures, and facts are all prominently on display as the Sun spins through your sign.  Self expression is an important outlet for you in this time.                        

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22):  Home and family may pose a challenge for you this week as three powerful outer planets gather in that part of your life.  While challenges can be draining, they can also add confidence as you find a way to push through to a solution.  Stand up to the challenge and learn from the experience.     

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov 21): Your week is likely to be consumed with research and investigative projects.  Your ability to probe and delve into the unknown is well understood within the zodiac.  You can go where few otters will go.  Your eye for details is superb.  Use those skills this week and see what has been hiding from you..                                                 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Career opportunities loom large this week.  The Sun and Mercury are together in this area of your life so expect to have discussions surrounding employment possibilities.  Financial gains may be your primary goal but there are challenges inherent in this pursuit.  Consider the challenges to be gifts that push you to achieve more.                                                                                                                                   

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your love life may be in the spotlight this week as Venus tours your relationship domain.  This should be an ideal time to train your attention on those you love and cherish.  As you evolve you may find that the greatest gift you have to give is self sacrifice.  Give and you will receive.                                

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):  You may begin to feel as if you are turning a major page in your life this week.  Events, circumstances, and people are shifting and your views are changing as well.  As you adapt to the specter of change you may be emboldened by the newness of it all.  Like fresh air, the change is enlivening.                            

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Conversations may take on a particularly confusing sense this week as you try and make sense of your significant relationships.  Where there is confusion there is clarity not far behind.  It may be wise to express your opinions in an effort to gain that clarity.  Honesty is the best approach.
