FORECAST: Weekly Astrology August 26, 2019

We see a spectacular array of planets hovering in earth signs this week, many under the influence of the retrograde motion of Uranus in fixed earth sign, Taurus.  To begin with we see the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Mars all stacked up in the mutable earth sign of Virgo. At the same time, Saturn and Pluto continue to retrograde in cardinal earth sign, Capricorn.  The most influential connections (closest) occur between Venus and Saturn and also between Mercury conjunct the Sun and Uranus. What does this all mean? Anytime Uranus is involved in a transit or aspect we can be certain there will be an unusual or rebellious quality to the theme.  In this case, Uranus is in a harmonious aspect to Mercury. Since Uranus is widely considered to be a higher octave of Mercury we can look to communication as the central theme. This is cerebral activity. What sort of revelation might suddenly appear that we had not anticipated? While these two planets are in a harmonious angle to each other, the expectation may be about a contract, a communique, or a possible leak.  Anything having to do with exchanges, written exposes, or unexpected news falls under this veil. Another by-product of such an alignment comes from mental fluidity. Quick-thinking, rapid-fire exchanges and bursts of creative insight are also likely. How does this impact you? Each of us will feel this theme, but we will each feel it differently. Where will you feel it?

The other earth sign connections occur most dramatically with Venus and Saturn.  Saturn has been crawling through Capricorn over the last few years and will continue until December of 2020 when it finally moves into Aquarius.  This week though it forms a harmonious angle to beneficial Venus. Saturn trine Venus is an aspect that allows us to come to a healthy, meaningful, and responsible conclusion.  The main theme here is responsibility. With Venus involved that generally points to a positive outcome. Examples that might fit this are paying off or reducing loans, investing in your home, establishing a more prudent method for daily living.  Even though each of those themes has responsibility embedded in it, the general outcome is that of probity and sobriety. Those words point to a resolution that is necessary, yet also ultimately beneficial to us. This aspect night not have all the glitter and romance we crave with Venus but it does allow us to resolve or reduce our burdens.  Anything that lightens our load in a responsible manner is truly a step in the right direction.
