Weekly Astrological Forecast for August 22-31
By Bob Mulligan
From August 22nd to the 31st we come into our own by linking our past achievements into a pattern that makes some sense. We all know what the right thing to do is if we just take the time to implement our knowledge.
22nd – Monday – Mercury Sesquiquadrate Pluto, Sun Semi-square Saturn, Sun Parallel Mercury, Sun Opposite Neptune – Regardless of the opposition and difficulties, it is important to decode what other people are saying. Unrealistic expectations and ideals power assertions now. Everyone seems to be struggling with some form of insufficiency or insecurity. Hold onto your ideals but be the voice of reason.
23rd – Tuesday – Venus Contra-parallel Neptune, Sun enters Virgo, Mercury Parallel Venus, Mercury Contra-parallel Neptune – A well turned phrase can help illuminate complicated situations. Finding compromise allows us to bond into groups based on common values; we need to envision a bigger picture of life in order to transcend self-interest.
24th – Wednesday – Venus Quincunx Uranus, Saturn Sesquiquadrate Neptune – Be careful to make decisions that honor the important details; expediency will get you to the goal quickly but you won’t like the results. Be willing to start over if you discover that you are headed in the wrong direction.
25th – Thursday – Mars Sesquiquadrate Neptune, Mars Square Saturn, Venus Trine Pluto, Mercury Sesquiquadrate Uranus – Anger and frustration can cloud the real meaning of events today. The power to change for the better is unleashed through continuing effort to understand others and the larger significance of the current world events.
26th – Friday – Mercury turns direct – Our vision clears and we can see what we want; success comes through correct timing and measured self-expression. New information alters the picture and we are apt to correct some recent decisions.
27th – Saturday – Mercury Sesquiquadrate Uranus, Sun Quincunx Uranus – Our mental horizons expand and we are happiest if we are able to use our deep reservoirs of knowledge to solve difficulties of the moment.
28th – Sunday – Sun Trine Pluto, Mercury Parallel Jupiter, the New Moon – It’s time to make a practical plan and then stick to it. It’s best to spend time in meditation and rumination now. Help is offered but we need to stay focused on a meaningful timeline and real action is a few days away yet.
29th – Monday – Sun Parallel Venus – Genuine luck is all around us and it is reachable if we are able to remain positive and stay intent on our personal goals. Take time to help others and be generous as we can’t afford the mistake of living for ourselves alone.
30th – Tuesday – Venus Trine Jupiter, Jupiter turns direct – Revelation carries us to new insight and allows us to go deeper into a thought process we have recently discovered. Take the gains of the moment and then move on to the next set of circumstances.
31st – Wednesday – Mercury Sesquiquadrate Pluto – Finding our passion may not be as easy as we think it should be. We move from extremes toward the middle of the road and seek balance. We tried an all or nothing approach to life and now we need to find the balanced path.
