Welcome to August 2015 and what could be a highly challenging first week of this month. After all, a potent Full Moon has just occurred on Friday July 31 -- making today the first 24 hours of a two-day distribution of the enlightening stellar vibrations that entered the heart and soul of humankind yesterday morning.
Your job, if you are ready and eager to handle the workload, is to be a fervent ambassador of goodwill, spreading the divine message of peace and harmony around the globe. However, Mercury in Leo forming a frictional, 45-degree tie with the Lunar North Node in Libra (9:13AM) and the Sun making an off-kilter, 150-degree link to often confusing and chaos-producing Neptune (11:25AM) may not be in the mood to follow the cosmic party line.
Keep in mind that Venus continues doing backstrokes in the Zodiac after its station and retrograde shift on July 25. Now the Moon opposes Venus (3:04PM) beginning a brief, 33-minute void lunar cycle that lasts until 3:37PM when the Moon enters empathic Pisces. Slow down your tempo across the board this evening as the Sun forms a dicey contra-parallel with Saturn (9:39PM) while the beautiful ringed planet also pauses in the heavens (10:54PM at 29 degrees of Scorpio) in order to shift gears from reverse to direct motion.
All Saturn themes -- responsibility and perseverance, hard work and pragmatism, executive authority, career and professional stature, focus and logic, structure and form, common sense and conservative behavior patterns, the paternal archetype, chronological time, doubt and frustrations, pessimism, chronic difficulties, depression and fears -- are reinforced for this entire day and for Sunday as well. Do your best to stay out of harm's way and be realistic about what can be accomplished in the physical-material realm.
