Take Care of Yourself!
While some people are helpful this week, others may create unpleasant drama as the Sun trines Pluto on August 29 before quincunxing Uranus on August 30. You'll be feeling quite sensitive with a full Moon in sensitive Pisces on August 31, so be sure to harness the practical gifts of Mercury's entrance into Virgo that same day. Delay making important decisions at the close of the week when Mercury opposes Neptune on September 1.
August 29: The Sun trines Pluto
August 30: The Sun quincunxes Uranus
Powerful people are available now as you make plans for your future, so remain light on your feet and be ready to adapt to anything on a moment's notice. If you find an opportunity now to positively influence somebody's life, grab it -- your own experiences can light the way for others. This is a confidence-building time for those looking to enhance their self-esteem. Let go of doubts and take a leap of faith!
August 31: Full Moon in Pisces
Full Moons can trigger strong emotions, even in the most thick-skinned among us. And when a full Moon occurs in the most sensitive sign of the zodiac, it becomes a potent time when people can easily overreact! With the Sun in Virgo opposing the Moon in Pisces, use this time to tend to your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. Make changes that will help you feel happier and more content. Schedule time off from your busy life. Learn how to relax. Take deep breaths. Do things that help you instead of harm you. Finally, consider what inspires you, then go from there!
August 31: Mercury enters Virgo
September 1: Mercury opposes Neptune
Last week, the Sun entered Virgo and opposed Neptune, at which time you hopefully paid special attention to your intuition. Now, as information-loving Mercury follows the Sun into analytical Virgo, logic needs to be combined with imagination to effectively communicate your ideas. Daydreaming is your friend now, so if you try to move forward with only your rational mind, you're likely to end up confused and easily deceived. Look for what's not being said ... in other words, read between the lines. Most importantly, trust your feelings!
