End-of-Summer Slowdown

End-of-Summer Slowdown
As summer comes to a close, so too does a period of celestially supported growth and expansion. Lucky Jupiter -- from August 16 to September 14 -- will be standing still, also known as a station.

While this position of Jupiter does have a stall quality to it, it also provides you the chance to stop and reflect on the past few months, and to review your intentions for the weeks ahead. So this is now a time of consolidation and revision rather than pursuing new projects.

Jupiter is currently moving through Taurus, a sign that loves to accumulate, especially material possessions and all forms of wealth, allowing you to hold onto more than you may have been able to previously. Think of this as a cosmic pause, helping you review the opportunities of the first half of 2011, and refocus on the ones that best fit your personal dreams.

Taurus is a grounded Earth sign, and as Jupiter slows down, you’ll find it easier to create the time you need to manage the practical aspects of your life. Communication planet Mercury is retrograde now (through August 26), so as summer ends, it’s a fine time to review regular schedules and make improvements. If you haven’t had the time you want to be creative or indulge your desires, making slight adjustments to your routines through August ensures you get more time to play and have fun through September. This may involve reassessing commitments and stepping away from those you’re no longer passionate about.

Energy planet Mars is now (through September 19) in home-loving Cancer. The sign Mars is in always shows where motivation lies, and highlights an area of life where you need to show leadership and take action. As a general theme, Mars in Cancer brings reminders to connect with family and loved ones. This influence highlights the supportive and nurturing power of family rituals. Mars only visits Cancer once-every-two-years, making August/September 2011 an important time for new beginnings at home and with family.

Summer ends this year with two key planets, Jupiter and Mars, in yin or feminine signs. As the heat of summer fades away, there’s a quiet slip back into regular routines, as you remember the little things that nourish and support you.
