The Stars This Week: August 29 - September 4, 2011
Help Arrives!

The big news this week is Jupiter turning retrograde in Taurus on August 30, a transit for which you'll need to stand back and stop investing in projects not bearing fruit. Venus supports this process with a helpful trine to Jupiter on August 29, while the Sun brings further assistance on September 2. Keep your eyes and ears open for angels!

August 29: Venus trines Jupiter
Venus represents love, relationships and money, and in this trine to Jupiter in Taurus, you may just find yourself an angel investor! No matter what you're trying to achieve, this aspect brings help -- and its timing couldn't be better! Connect with people who possess a great deal of financial know-how or worldly experience, for this is the moment to advance your social and business relationships. The people you meet now will influence your future!

August 30: Jupiter turns retrograde
Jupiter entered Taurus, the sign most focused on stability, last June 4. This big planet, even when not in money sign Taurus, is still associated with social and economic development. Since June, you've hopefully been paying attention to areas of your life that you wish to make more secure. Now it's time to pause, step back and assess the areas in which you are investing! Projects might get put on hold, and money may become unavailable as everyone tightens their pursestrings, so this is a time not only to be creative about how you spend, but also extra-sensible when it comes to your investments. If you error on the side of caution, you'll create a strong foundation for the year ahead. This retrograde period will last until December 25.

September 2: The Sun trines Jupiter
This supportive contact between the Sun and expansive Jupiter brings support as you take a closer look at what you want to save ... and what you want to spend. Both the Sun and Jupiter are in Earth signs (Virgo and Taurus), giving this aspect an unusually practical focus. Someone with prestige, wisdom or influence -- or all three -- has helpful advice for you, and you have much to feel optimistic about as you plan for your future. Sow well now and you will reap plenty down the road!
