FORECAST: Weekly Astrology August 31, 2020

Weekly Astrology for August 31, 2020 by Chris Flisher

We begin the week with a full Moon in Pisces.  This full Moon draws on the power of neighboring Neptune, also in Pisces, the sign that it rules.  With such mystical and magical influences being so noticeable it may be easy for us to escape into a realm of fantasy and escapism.  To light up that aspect even more we have Uranus, now retrograde, connecting in a harmonious angle to the Sun in Virgo.  The full Moon comes as the Sun creeps through Virgo and shines from across the zodiac.  With Uranus involved there may be a sense of rebellion involved which can be a dangerous or at least skeptical angle especially when we combine the escapist tendencies of Neptune with the unleashed power of a full Moon.  Uranus may light up the angle with a bolt of unexpected activity that can run the full gamut from open revolution to a complete turn-over of conventions.  A wild time to observe, for certain.  Where is that happening in your life?  Do you know?  Contact me at,

Mercury will be a powerful player this week as well.  It begins with a harmonious angle to slow-moving Pluto which may trigger deep thoughts on evolution and karma.  Later Mercury forms a harmonious angle to Saturn which may bring our thoughts down to the earthly plane as we try and find grounding and pragmatic angles to life.  Shortly thereafter, Mercury steps into Libra where its influence tends to be more balanced and collaborative.  Later Venus stands in opposition to determined Saturn and relationships and responsibilities come into play.  This tense angle can highlight such topics as joint finances and contracts.  This angle may be a bit melancholic and serious.  Despite the somber tone, there is great progress to be made and bold choices to announce.  Where will you feel it?  If you have questions about your own unique destiny contact me at,, or

ARIES (March 21-April 19): The Moon slips into Aries this week and joins Chiron, the wounded healer.  You may be motivated to get on with a new chapter in your life after having come to an emotional conclusion.  This is how progress works, so relish the transition.  Mars continues in Aries and will soon be retrograding, so get your motor running.                                                     

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Uranus is in Taurus and is also in retrograde.  Expect the unexpected.  The more adaptable you are to change, the greater your odds are for success without a hitch.  You are not one who bends easily, but you might just have to try it soon, so prepare.  Conversions with siblings are pleasant.                                                                                     

GEMINI (May 21-June 21): The vibe may be quite lively with regard to your home and family this week.  Mercury, your ruler, is moving through that part of your world.  The topic of financial transactions may be in high visibility so train your attention towards successful endings there.  You may be motivated to work with others in business dealings.                        

CANCER (June 22-July 22):  Expect to see a lot of activity surrounding your career this week.  The Moon is in Aries and so is Mars, so your occupation may be the primary driver for you this week.   Challenging conversations may arise with your partner so brace yourself for a hard discussion.  Venus remains in Cancer and that may soothe your exchanges with others.             

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): It looks as if you are about to start a new way of living.  Have you been paying attention to your health and wellness lately?  While it may have been a challenge, the effort you have put into your well being may begin to show signs of paying off.  Finances are also looking quite positive in the foreseeable future.                     

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Your ruling planet, Mercury joins the Sun both in Virgo now.  This is your time of year to shine.  Use this alignment to shine a new light on your personal form of expression.  Self-expression, or creativity is the greatest way to connect with your inner sense of purpose.  Take chances.  Your time in the Sun has arrived.                        

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22):  You may be driven to discuss sensitive topics with your significant partner.  While that may be a healthy approach, stop to consider how deep and open you are willing to go.  Be mindful of a balanced and equitable approach that will lead to the most harmonious outcome.  Family matters are challenging.     

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov 21): Watch out for an unexpected response or reaction from your partner.  Uranus is moving through your relationship domain and could spell a surprise.  This theme can go either way so don’t push the panic button.  Just as much good can come as a surprise as evil, or conversely something you simply did not expect to discover.                                                   

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The focus continues on with your finances.  There are challenges there so approach cautiously and with another outside opinion.  Great potential for connections that have to do with occupation.  T may be that a new opportunity could spell relief in your financial outlook.  Take care of your physical body and heed any and all surprises.                                                                                                                                   

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You are in the midst of an enormous life change that holds the key to your happiness.  Any outside help would be valuable to you right now, depending on how you feel about that.  A therapist might lend some insights that could help immensely.  The same is true for an astrology consultation.                                

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):  You may be feeling quite well emotionally and physically, but there may be a gnawing restlessness lingering in the wings that is hard to explain.  Should you stay or should you go?  Those kinds of dilemmas are meant to urge you towards meaningful change.  The only way to find the answer is to experiment cautiously.                              

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Business associations may be fraught with complexities that you can’t seem to shake.  Why is it so difficult to seek clarity?  With Neptune in Pisces the challenge will always be present until you find the right footing.  Through the tension of relationships comes the answer.  Avoid impulsivity as you might not be seeing clearly.
