Star Signposts: Week of Full Moon August 6 – 13

Our current SolLunar Cycle is all about our relationship to homeland/family members, nurturing, nutrition, environmental concerns, all part of Cancer’s domain. You realize who are ‘your people’ at this stage of your life, or where your home is next meant to be. This month, I am featuring photos of my personal earthly and spiritual homes for most of my adult life, Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. This cycle is also preparing us for the life-shifting Total Solar Eclipse of August 21. That preparation may involve a release of possessions, relationships or places, and amp up a rapid cleansing and clearing of your physical, mental, emotional, spiritual bodies. Choose to overcome anxiety and tension by focusing instead on anticipating the newness you are vibrantly in the process of creating.

This week’s Full Moon is tied to both Mars and Jupiter, energizing us mightily, while also adding fuel to potential conflagrations in our world. There is a great explosiveness happening all around, including increased unpredictable fire activity, a quaking Earth, an erupting Sun. May you find your own way to return to a calm center throughout each day.

And once again, Mercury turns retrograde on August 12 and lasts until September 5. During this retrograde period, Mercury is moving in tandem with Vesta, the asteroid of focus, dedication to our purpose, commitment to a cause. The influence of Leo greatly enhances creative thinking, sparking a willingness to take risks to live more fulfilling ways. The conventional wisdom, too, is things might breakdown that needed to be fixed and snafus with all kinds of communications and networks can occur.

ECLIPSE MINI-READINGS: I am offering mini-readings for $44 (a number associated with living your Mastery on Earth) from now until the end of August. In this short reading, I will let you know where this historic Solar Eclipse is taking place in your personal chart, which helps identify where and how these dynamic energies are encouraging you already, NOW, to step out of one life and into the next exciting phase. Please send me an email if that interests you. Thank you!

NOTE: I post twice a month, on the New Moon (which includes the two weeks of New Moon and First Quarter Moon) and on the Full Moon (which includes the two weeks of Full Moon and Last Quarter Moon). As you work with and within the natural flow of time and supportive cosmic energies of each unique SolLunar Cycle, you will find your life flow with more ease and grace. My interpretations and predictions are based on the true sidereal astronomical alignments. You can read about my unique way of interpreting astrology at this link: EarthWord SkyWord sidereal readings. Even NASA is onboard now with the sidereal zodiac!

Here is a brief synopsis of the Full Moon characteristics that hold true to every Full Moon from my from my friend and sidereal colleague Nick Anthony Fiorenza at Lunar Planner.

“The Full Moon marks the point of coition in the lunar cycle, the climax, the point of excitement, a time of celebration. The day just after the Full Moon is a time for the realization of the theme to emerge, of what the activities of the first half of the lunar cycle, culminating into the enthusiasm of the Full Moon, are really about. Relax and allow this realization to occur. There is no need to force it as it surfaces on its own.”

Mon August 7

Full Moon in sidereal Cancer/Capricorn: This will be a productive Full Moon, given Capricorn’s influence. The opposition of Sun and Moon may bring forth imbalances in regards to responsibilities in your personal and professional life, leading to strong emotional outbursts as the Moon opposes truth-telling Mars. The helpful trine to Jupiter brings a sense that any obstacle can be surmounted if addressed honestly.

Mercury in Leo trine Pallas Athene in Aries: This optimistic geometry is great for creative designers or designing your life with more creative flare. A good day to update your social media, presentation materials, brands, or make rapid progress on a work-in-progress.

Tue August 8

Moon/South Lunar Node conjunction in Aquarius: Hooking up with an old friend or feeling complete about something in your past are options.

Wed August 9

Sun in Cancer quincunx Pluto in Sagittarius: You can feel a tension between your need for security and a growing awareness it’s time to take a risk in regards to a decision or relationship. Explore the tension between the pull of your past or the tug of your future.

Moon/Neptune in Aquarius opposite Mercury/Vesta in Leo trine Venus/Ceres in Gemini: This delightful, sociable, fun-seeking aspect makes for a busy day with many connections. What an exceptional opportunity to tap into the boundless depths of your underlying faith and trust in the Universe.

Thu August 10

Sun in Cancer sextile Jupiter in Virgo: Good fortune is in the air with this harmonious alignment, along with making purchases that bring greater health to your body and home environment. For those who love to clean, you will really love it today.

Moon/Chiron conjunction: Think healing waters, and visit them or offer up your healing emotional insight to another, or as loving advice to yourself. It’s the perfect moment to forgive something or someone.

Fri August 11

Moon in Pisces trine Mars in Cancer: This aspect offers positive emotional support, both in giving and receiving. The monthly Pisces Moon is best suited for more being, less doing, and loves to be near or immersed in water.

Venus/Ceres conjunction in Gemini trine Neptune in Aquarius: You are also giving and receiving great intellectual support, advice, fresh ideas with friends, community members, even strangers with this alignment.

Sat August 12

Mercury in sidereal Leo turns retrograde: This important event occurs around 7 pm MDT tonight and lasts until September 5. During this retrograde period, Mercury is moving in tandem with Vesta, the asteroid of focus, dedication to our purpose, commitment to a cause. The influence of Leo greatly enhances creative thinking, sparking a willingness to take risks to live more fulfilling ways. The conventional wisdom, too, is things might breakdown that needed to be fixed and never-ending snafus with all kinds of communications and networks will occur. Mercury looking inward supports inner reflection, slowing down, attuning to your heart’s ever-constant flowing fountain of love and wisdom. This will be is a wonderful accompaniment to the upcoming Total Solar Eclipse of August 21, bringing important messages to you, if you are listening.

Moon in Pisces trine Sun in Cancer opposite Jupiter in Virgo: This aspect brings an enthusiastic, optimistic flow to your activities and attitudes.

Moon/Uranus conjunction in Aries: This aspect happens near midnight and overnight tomorrow morning. It is spontaneous, electric, erratic. It can compromise your sleep, make you feel jittery, or manifest as late-night productivity. Calm your nerves as best you know how, or learn a new tool, as Uranus loves novelty.

Sun August 13

Sun in Cancer trine Saturn in Scorpio: There’s always an organizational flow with this alignment which you can use for either work or play. Saturn lends a steady energy and fortitude to any athletic adventures. It can bring positive financial news.
