The second half of this month is more supportive and there is a feeling of ease appearing in connection with others and greater sense of optimism, especially towards the end of the month, close to September.
13th – 18th
There are some good aspects brings some relief to the tension earlier this month. We start to feel the more positive aspects of the trines that Mars and Mercury have with Uranus. These 2 planets are spending the rest of the month together applying to Uranus, so more energy is directed to the practical part of our lives being in Virgo. There is an opportunity to assess skills and be discerning with your current efforts and ans situations. It brings about the quality of analysis, again “what can I change, and bring into my life”. Virgo break things down and then puts it back together, the earthy consideration of how we practically bring about efficient and stable. Virgo is ruled by Mercury so in its sign, it will be happy to consider all the details, be selective, but don’t get too bogged down. Venus in Libra mid-month will bring about a softening quality to this all this, bringing some balance and a little more diplomacy. The edges will be softened, relationships can have a less explosive and divisive nature to them. (and we do need that so much!) Mercury will join Venus at the end of the month in Libra, losing the harshness of Virgo so a distinct change of more ease and better social gathering, conversations will be more flowing, connected with grace and diplomacy.
In the week Mars has been moving towards Uranus creating a trine, providing energy and inspiration. You have sparked up and could strike new projects or find existing projects stimulated, as you can see some light now and break through the obstacles with innovative solutions or unusual ideas.
22nd - Full Moon...more info
This Full Moon in Aquarius isn't as close to Saturn as the first Full Moon in Aquarius in July. It is much closer to Jupiter, so there is a mellowing, less restrictions and a sense of “its going to be OK”. Mars in Virgo is tucked away, so there is loss of heat leaving Mars in the sign of Virgo, a little more independent and moving with Mercury in Virgo, so easier now to implement solutions for previous problems and a sense of relief will be felt.
The Sun moves into the sign of Virgo, so back to work, do what needs to be done, there is the energy of “lets get it done”, so a busy time for some of us! Mercury being the ruler can create a level of nervous energy so it is vital to find a positive outlet and centre, so there is inner calm. Looking at details and worrying, can lead to nervous upsets, so use the critical, analytical, and practical hard-working qualities of Virgo in a constructive way.
With Venus trine Saturn relationships, friendships or partnerships will lend a more serious and stable tone, hence a good time for discussing any problems that may have arisen as you can be more objective.
24th – 29th
Mercury is opposing Neptune, bringing a distracted and unfocused influence. At the same time Pluto in a good aspect to Mercury may help concentrate the mind, rest and take time for yourself. Mercury moves into the sign of Libra, hence a little more diplomacy will be prominent. Libra being in an air sign likes to way up the options with a focus on intellectual matters and communication with others. There will be attempts at more inclusive discussions as Libra likes a more fair and balanced solution around conflicts. Mars will be opposing Neptune at the end of the month so there could be a desire to escape. It might be a time to slow down and recuperate, reconsider, or reflect on your options as Mars can have the quality of making quick and rash decisions depending on where it is placed in your natal chart. A quiet time might be the answer to use the Venus in Libra gentleness and grace to find a balance, as it has been a hectic few months.
