August day by day planner for you from me! Robin
Monday: Scorpio Moon
The Scorpio Moon and Saturn meet! I have written this to you many times since last fall, but now Saturn is direct and it's easier to deal with situations that have been stubborn or heavy. Mars energy is also in Scorpio and it's all about transforming. Be the alchemist, see the circumstances as they are and take action to shift what needs to move. Scorpio is intuitive and strong willed, and Saturn relates to our elders. If you are dealing with an elderly relative or serve that community in some way, it's a time of decisions, long term planning, and resolution or agreements everyone can stick with. This is one area of life impacted, and there are more like health, mental health, and business organization. Venus helps out from Cancer with a caring, soft approach and the way to find harmony. Things that are serious on today's agenda may go more easily than you anticipated. The Moon is void of course from 1:49 pm EDT until Tuesday at 6:19 am. Today's color is black.
Tuesday: Sagittarius Moon
The Moon in Sagittarius from 6:19 am this morning until Thursday morning contacts many planets in a favorable way, including Jupiter today. Jupiter is Sag's ruling planet and travel, education, freedom and philosophy are highlighted. Adventures will be appealing. It might be hard to keep to schedules and plans unless they are very enticing and exciting. You may spend time considering what you really want from life and how to achieve that. If you're moving away and making big life changes, your energy will be in that direction. Sagittarius also rules equestrians, archery, and global business, all of which are favored for luck, growth and activity today. Neptune tries to pull us off schedule and maybe off course. You may fight a drowsy feeling and have to put extra effort into focusing. There's much mutable (changeable and malleable) energy in the air today, and the Jupiter in Leo influence is for larger, grander, sparkling and long lasting with whatever your biggest endeavor is. Today's color is purple.
Wednesday: Void of Course Moon
The best time for sure action and decisions is early, prior to void of course Moon time at 10:52 am EDT. You'll see people missing from their usual posts, trying to escape extra responsibility, and off on excursions and exploring paths after that time. A long void of course Moon can be good for a breather. If important business is pending, the right players may not be available. Yet, the Moon and Leo Sun harmonize at 6:36 am and Uranus throws in a word from Aries at 10:52. A game changer from mid morning through the day is a good possibility. Try to take one thing at a time, relax some, and have reasonable expectations. It's not the most reliable time, but fun and discovery can happen spontaneously. If you scrap the original plan, it's probably for good reason. Today's color is red.
Thursday: Capricorn Moon, Mars trine Neptune
Mars and Neptune combine in the water signs, Scorpio and Cancer for a highly charged day. Emotions are best channeled productively into art, writing, music, or anything creative. Swimming and being near the water has a positive influence on the soul, and today may be the day to answer that call! We need to do something with strong feelings on a day like this. Have a good outlet that works for you. Capricorn Moon moves in at 9:38 am EDT and aligns with those two planets to help us achieve or produce something worthwhile. Reign in scattered energy. Reduce a problem by clearing away clutter or get to the heart of a matter by letting extraneous distractions go so you can solve the real issue. Aim for no drama and productive solutions. Today's color is indigo blue.
Friday: Sun, Mercury, Uranus trine
The Moon in in Capricorn, a sign with ambition and a take charge approach. As the Moon/Pluto monthly meeting happens, behind the scenes influences shape things (Aquarius, this applies to you) and we need to realistically look at our problems and goals, both (Sagittarius with work and money, Aries with career and use of talents and leadership). The potent action of the day comes in the fire signs though, as Mercury in Leo, Uranus in Aries and the Sun collectively contribute to announcements, strong statements, self expression, dynamic creativity, and authenticity. Some news will come by surprise, especially from Leo and maybe Aries too. Aquarius, your love life and opportunities are highly charged! Scorpio, a career move suddenly makes sense or you may be thrust into a spotlight or role, whether you requested that or not. We move into the Full Moon zone now. It's exact on Sunday night and full of questions, answers, decisions, and efforts to reconcile differences. Today's color is gold. (happybirthdaytome!)
Saturday: Aquarius Moon
The Moon is void of course from 4:09 am to 9:52 am EDT and moves to Aquarius, our Full Moon sign then. Oppositions and squares in fixed signs Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius indicate strong differences will be prevalent. This Full Moon continues that way tomorrow too, so stubborn patterns and people will be tough to challenge. The positive side is that if you do reach an agreement, decisions or take definitive action, the effect is long lasting. It will not be easy to get out of an agreement or commitment later, so make sure you're confident with what you decide or announce. Aquarius Moon is for finding community and for thinking out of the box. Today's color is turquoise.
Sunday: Full Moon in Aquarius
Yesterday's forecast applies equally today. Uranus in Aries throws in an element of chance. Anything could happen. Be a bit more open minded if you've closed off options. Be a bit conservative if you're a natural risk taker. Moderation will help during this Full Moon of extremes and agendas. Balance time with people with some chill down time. Aquarius Moon is full of activity with groups and associations you're part of. Group efforts and events will be busy and may include sudden news or changes. This is a time when some will conclude long term business of any kind. With Aquarius Full Moon, friends step up to support each other's endeavors. This Full Moon requires extra effort and a bit of flexibility in many areas if you're to accomplish what you want, including communicating clearly and honestly, getting wise advice in health matters, dealing with anything regarding the elderly, wills or legacies of any kind, and committing to plans for expansion and growth. Think long term. Today's color is silver.
