All summer a grand fire trine with Saturn, Uranus, and the North Node has been urging us toward inspired, long term plans and creative projects. This week, Venus activates this fire trine, first trining Saturn and then Uranus. Venus brings harmony and connections. Perhaps this is the week when you connect with the people who will help you achieve your big dreams. Mercury conjuncts Mars on the 16th brings in another piece of the eclipse story and offers forward movement on whatever Mercury retrograde has us ruminating on.
We have a beautiful Full Moon in Pisces this week, exactly conjunct to Neptune which doubles the Piscean flavour: this is creative, romantic, dreamy, and mystical. Make sure you take some time this week to slow down and enjoy these sweet Piscean vibes. The Full Moon is inconjunct Venus in Leo, which asks for a minor adjustment in our relationships or financial situation, or perhaps our relationships to pleasure. Even amidst the romance and dreaminess, seek a more realistic understanding of the situation. Mercury stations direct this week, so stay tuned for insight around the meaning of this past few weeks of Mercury retrograde.
As the eclipse energy continues to ripple through the collective, I hope you continue to receive insight around your purpose, your big dreams, your long term plans. The eclipse story isn’t over yet. While the Sun has moved on into Virgo, Mars and Mercury make a conjunction at the end of this week (September 3rd) right on the eclipse degree, reactivating the eclipse themes. And with Mercury still retrograde, we don’t yet have all the information. Mars conjunct Mercury on this degree speaks to courageously, boldly, going after your biggest dreams, speaking your truth, and sharing your vision with others, even as the details are still falling into place.
Wow, what a momentous week! Your horoscopes this week cover how this important total solar eclipse is likely to affect you. The light of the sun is blocked at a solar eclipse, offering an opportunity to sever the flow of energy that has fed patterns and relationships that no longer align with our destiny. The eclipse is an opportunity to reset. To tie the cords in a different place. To feed energy into new patterns that we choose with intention. Keep in mind that as the sun is blocked and mercury is retrograde, it’s likely that we don’t yet have all the information. If possible, stay flexible in your plans until mid-September. Keep in mind also, that in times of change, there is necessarily disorder, even chaos, in order to allow a new order to emerge. Let chaos be an opportunity to envision the future you desire.

It’s Mercury retrograde time again! There’s much fear surrounding this transit, but if we know how to work with it, Mercury retrograde can be highly fruitful. The messenger planet will be retrograde from August 12th in the sign of Virgo (with a dip back into Leo at the end of the month) until September 5th when it stations and begins moving forwards again.
