Sunday, August 24. Let the taste of this last day of the Leo lunar cycle linger on your tongue. The Sun is dipping closer to the southern horizon every day (in the Northern Hemisphere). Summer is sailing into fall like a setting Sun. Perhaps this sweet taste of summer will help us with our alchemical processes of achieving well-being. Mercury in Virgo, which can sometimes be prone to nervous anxiety but also prone to pragmatic solutions, is quincunx to agitating Uranus. The benefit of this transit can be to shake us out of a stupor. We need to be proactive in creating systems of wholeness and health in our lives. Mercury is also opposite Chiron in Pisces, further illuminating a need to find those anchoring practices that reach into our vulnerable hearts to create compassionate healing for all.
Thursday, August 28. Do you still need to make up for some impetuous behavior from the last few days? The Moon in Libra encourages us to work it out. We may still feel some friction however with the square between the Moon and Pluto. Are you holding on to resentments? What helps you to let go and see the big picture; after all no one is perfect.
