FORECAST: Weekly Astrology for August 6, 2018

The activity of the summer continues to unfold. Mercury, now retrograde, pairs up with the Sun and Moon late in the week on a new Moon Solar Eclipse. This is the last eclipse of the season and follows two earlier eclipses; another new Moon eclipse and then a full Moon eclipse late in July. With Mercury involved in this current one we can imagine heightened rhetoric and a string of questionable accounts of the past. In this capacity, fake news and theories about it, may hit an all-time high. Jupiter, in Scorpio, is in a harmonious angle to Neptune and that signals an amplification of illusion. As we creep closer to the truth we can expect to hear more of this kind of distracting commentary coming from the highest office. To further complicate and delude, we see Jupiter standing in harsh angle to the Moon, Sun, and Mercury all in conjunction currently in Leo. Together these planets may take the reality of truth and spin it out of control. Distraction is a powerful tool and can be quite effective in slanting our collective attention spans. Mercury in retrograde simply pours fuel on the fire and further amplifies the confusion. For more detailed information contact me at or

Elsewhere we see activity as Venus ingresses into Libra where it is exalted. Aesthetics, beauty and a deeper sense of diplomacy are key attributes of Venus in this position and may, in fact, soften some of the harshness that seems so apparent. With Venus serving as a counter to the harsh angles of Jupiter we might be able to reel back in a sense of normalcy as a result. In addition to Venus’ ingress into Libra, we also see Uranus begin its retrograde period. Uranus, in the early degrees of Taurus, begins its station backwards this week. Uranus stations retrograde on the 7th and will slowly reverse direction from our perspective on earth. During the course of its retrograde period Uranus will slip back into the late degrees of Aries before it stations direct early in 2019. Any time a planet enters into its station period we can expect to see heightened activity of the attributes of the planet. In the case of Uranus we might expect to see new and unusual reversals of fortune and a walking back of unusual events. Sudden, unexpected, revolutionary, and rebellious acts are likely under this retrograde.
