(Astrology Explored)–Astrology for the Week of August 27 to September 2
Mars and Venus in the relationship oriented sign of Libra spends the week in friendly energetic connection (trine) to Neptune and Chiron. Neptune, the ruler of the oceans, also rules our spiritual connection to the Cosmos. Wrapped up in our spiritual connection is “all that came before”, that which makes up and sums up our soul. Included in “all the came before” are the dings and dents in our spiritual armor, our missteps, misdeeds and hurts from the past. Chiron sitting here in trine Mars and Venus signals the opportunity to recognize and mend those old wounds. With Mars and Venus involved for some of us this may involve as Marvin Gaye sings sexual healing. Hmmm.
Aries—Caught between a desire to play and the things you need to do to keep a relationship going, let’s just say you are a little bit stressed this week. It doesn’t help that you have a revelatory moment about the one that got away that doesn’t particularly cast you in the best light. Hindsight is always 20-20, isn’t it?
Taurus—Bright ideas will have to wait until Mercury goes direct in a couple weeks to implement. During this time you should review your plans and gather information. You might find that planning a thing is much more fun than bringing it to fruition.
Gemini-Though you are feeling the need to get something accomplished botched communications puts a dent in your plans. This is a time to socialize rather than push forward on career matters anyway, so go ahead. Party!
Cancer-A lot is coming at you right now, Cancer. The Crab does poorly when overwhelmed, so I will not be surprised when you have your meltdown. The other people you know will, and still expect you to do what they want you to do. Grab a box of hankies and keep a stiff upper lip, though your lower lip may pout a bit.
Leo—You may find yourself on the telephone a little more than usual, wheeling and dealing. Be warned, however. Make sure that you read all contracts thoroughly, cross those t’s and dot those i’s. Make some extra room for delays in deliveries in your schedule.
Virgo—Emotional issues seem to have two sides and both of them wrong! Lucky for you that you have a healthy support system with friends ready to rush at your side if need be. This is a good time to ask for favors from authority figures.
Libra—Flashes of insight help you with a painful issue. This may be the time when you can put to rest a nagging health issue, if you are willing to try an unusual approach. Be extra careful of your feet to avoid a painful injury.
Scorpio—the Scorpion enjoys a good spy story, especially if you are the hero or heroine of the show. Well you can scope out that hottie that has caught your eye, but don’t be surprised if he or she not only catches you looking, but are caught looking you at you too!
Sagittarius—Your escapades have started the gossips talking again, Sagittarius. Don’t worry, that’s just jealousy on their part. The people that matter are the ones that support you and you have a ton of those people! Love is in the air.
Capricorn—the Sun entering the supportive sign of Virgo helps you to analyze your situation to get to the heart of the matter. Listen to your head and not your heart, which is of two minds. And two heads are definitely not better than one.
Aquarius—Though you continue with money and love luck this week, you might find that the price of your desires is to honestly examine your own motivations. The truth hurts, but hiding from the truth hurts even more.
Pisces—Another person is trying to make you and that person “a couple”, something you aren’t sure you want at all. The truth is, is that this person has far too many things to tell you about what you should be doing for your own comfort. Backpedaling over old issues fails to help.
