Thursday: Pisces Moon void of course from 9:38 am EDT on. Leo Sun is in harmony with Jupiter for socializing, optimism, and opening the heart. Mercury in Virgo aligns with Venus in Cancer for relationships and communication. Do what's sensible and realistic while keeping feelings and sensitivities in mind. Today's color is Green for the heart chakra and the sign Pisces.
Friday: Aries Moon time starts 1:22 am EDT. The waning Moon in an action starting sign may lead you to 'clean house'. Clear debris that you're certain you're done with. Be mindful and not impulsive since Mercury retro is already a factor. Avoid doing anything you'll wish you could reverse. Minds will be very changeable as will plans in the weeks ahead, for the remainder of August and into September. It's not a favorable day to shop or make a big purchase. Exercise, act on inspiration, clear a path for what's next or new, even without knowing what exactly is coming. Red is today's color.
Saturday: Mercury retrograde officially begins at 9 pm in the sign Virgo. The retro will take Mercury back into Leo briefly from August 31st to September 9th. Mercury is retro, appearing to move backwards and retracing degrees of these signs until September 5th. With school shopping and September schedules in the works, it's not the most convenient time for a retrograde. Make minimal changes since things will shift again. Leave well enough alone, as my Grandmother would say. Enjoy reconnecting with friends and get back to unfinished projects you still have energy for. Aries Moon with a variety of aspects to planets. Do what feels most worthwhile and natural, and avoid forcing matters or pushing things to work when they're not really meant to. Today's color is Yellow.
Sunday: Void Moon only from 4:01 to 6:40 am EDT. Sweet dreams during those hours. If you're awake, feel the in between nature of the void Moon and relax into the day or into sleep. Brush off or breathe well through feelings of urgency. Most things can wait. Taurus Moon stabilizes and favors long term decisions and loyalty. The Leo Sun trine to Saturn in Sagittarius may open your mind to options if you're attempting to solve or resolve something important. Pay attention to creative solutions and alternative ideas. Today's color is Orange.
Monday: Taurus Moon engages with 6 planets directly and 2 in a less direct manner. 4th quarter Moon is at 9:15 pm EDT as the Moon squares the Sun in Leo. Today is likely to be busy and you may be asked to commit or agree to something. Mercury is retro so temporary arrangements may work best. Set an end date or a date to reconvene. Don't allow yourself to be pushed into anything you're not ready for. Spend time outdoors, appreciate nature, work in the garden. Abundance and prosperity are favored. Go fishing or collecting. Weed out what you're sure is ready to go. If you must shop, say for clothing, today is better than some Mercury retrograde days. Save receipts for the entire month and into the next. Void Moon 9:15 pm to 10:06 am EDT Tuesday. Today's color is Brown.
Tuesday: Mercury opposes Pluto. The Moon moves to Gemini at 10:06 am. Communication, family business, home related concerns or decisions, and balancing emotions are some of today's themes. Staying centered and focused will help. Gemini Moon often leads to busy mind or multi tasking. Try to stay centered. Something that's been suppressed, hidden or emotionally charged will come up for discussion for some. This may be a completely internal, personal process or it may involve your family or your 'corporate family'. Today's color is Blue.
Wednesday: This Gemini Moon day features the challenges of the sign, as squares form with other planets and there's an opposition to Saturn retrograde. Mars is in harmony with the Moon, however that could make conversations too strong or bold. Words could be misused in argumentative or egotistical ways. Communication and plans are challenged by the Moon/Mercury retro square. Be careful what or whom you trust or rely on. Today's color is Light Blue.
