August 15, 2021: Venus enters Libra. Venus enters its second home sign of Libra (the first one is Taurus). Venus is how we connect, how we relate, how we receive. Libra is also about relating and connecting. It is also about equilibrium and balance. Venus in Libra is all about balancing the needs of self and other, valuing relationships, and having a heart as light as a feather. When you allow your heart to lead your relationships, you will find that your life is more balanced and you have more harmony and equilibrium.
August 16, 2021: Mercury at 7° Virgo in a t-square with the Nodes. Mercury is in a t-square with the North Node in Gemini and the South Node in Sagittarius. Hopefully you have been working with Mercury moving through Virgo to purify your perceptions, to learn discernment, and to dedicate yourself in sacred service to perceiving the world as it is and not through filters of outdated beliefs and dogmas. This is where the Nodes come in. Use that Gemini energy to be open and curious to new possibilities and willing to let go of philosophies and beliefs (Sagittarius) that no longer serve you, your evolution, and what you want for your life moving forward.
August 18, 2021: Mercury and Mars conjunct at 12° Virgo. With a purified mind, sanctified in the temple of Virgo, you can take inspired actions in your life, knowing that the steps you take are moving you towards Truth. You know Truth by how it feels: does it make you feel more connected to yourself, others, and life? Life is a sacred journey, and when you tap into that inner knowing, it will be effortless to take actions that facilitate the highest good for all concerned.
August 20, 2021: Uranus goes retrograde at 14° Taurus 48’. Planets are always more powerful when they are stationed. It appears as if they are not moving, just standing still in the sky. Uranus in Taurus is shaking us up in the area of Taurus: our relationship to our bodies, the earth, how we get and use resources, what we even consider resources, and anything that is concerned with material reality. Uranus is always seeking more authentic expression, so when we work with this energy, we don’t have to get shocked or blasted out of comfort zones. We can choose to allow the insights and downloads from the Higher Mind to guide us to new horizons in how we live our day-to-day lives.
Mercury at 14° Virgo trine Uranus at 14° Taurus. A beautiful energy to work with Uranus in a productive way. Our perceptions are being purified, we are learning discernment, we are taking the time to analyze and not jump to conclusions, we are seeking practical solutions, we are allowing our lower mind (Mercury) and Higher Mind (Uranus) to work together in harmony to bring our lives into alignment.
Sun at 27° Leo opposite Jupiter at 27° Aquarius. The Sun in Leo is pure self-expression, living truly from the heart with courage, allowing your fullest light to radiate for all the world to see. Jupiter in Aquarius is expanding all Aquarian attributes, shadow and light. Shadow Aquarius is groupthink, authoritarianism, future-focused with no wisdom gained from past, advancement of technology with no heart or wisdom, emotional detachment. Light Aquarius is full expression of yourself from the heart for the benefit of all beings, caring about your community, moving forward into the future with a reverence for the past and its wisdom, technology that is developed and utilized from a place of spiritual wisdom, and the ability to have emotional maturity and objectivity. It is pretty clear which side of Aquarius is being activated right now and Jupiter, reentered into Aquarius, is just expanding what is already there. However, we always have choice, and we can utilize the Sun in Leo and the Jupiter in Aquarius energies to shine our lights as brilliantly as possible, contributing our unique genius and gifts to our communities in the highest and best way, and illuminating for others how is it possible to live from the heart.
