The Sun still shines in Leo for another few days (along with Venus, Mercury, and Jupiter), so enjoy the happiness and indulge yourself with one last surge of summer fun.
Sunday is kissed with the sweetness of Venus conjunct Jupiter. This is a good luck aspect, so be perceptive about what aspects of your life good fortune is appearing. Be generous, playful, and a bit extravagant. The Moon moves into Gemini late afternoon Pacific time, amplifying conversation and curiosity. The celebration of my August 29 birthday begins early with an outing with two close friends to hear the music of Sergio Mendez at the Stern Grove free summer concert series. How awesome to start the celebration of my birthday on this lucky day!
The Moon is in curious Gemini on Monday and Tuesday. The gifts of Gemini are at hand at the beginning of the week. Satisfy your curiosity through conversation. Monday is loaded with a lot of yummy and visionary planetary aspects. Mercury opposite Neptune could bring distractions and diffusions, but it also could bring inspiration and illumination. Be intentional with your conversations and allow the insights that are generated to glow. Communication and learning are still highlighted Tuesday, though not quite so intensely.
From Wednesday through Friday afternoon, the Moon is in compassionate Cancer. Inspiration, soft tones and colors, and delicate beauty infuse Tuesday. Tread lightly, and be open to some magic that could be sprinkled into your life. Thursday is a much more dynamic day with some sharp edges, yet with lots of potential for productivity. It’s an intellectually profound day. New discoveries could be made. Great insights could come through writing. There’s a long Void Moon period from Thursday afternoon (12:34 PM PST) through Friday at 1:49 PM PST. This time is for gardening, reading, cooking, and cleaning—not for definitive decisions.
The Moon moves to playful Leo from Friday afternoon through Sunday. The lunar move into Leo happens just as the Sun leaves the same sign, which extends the Leo exuberance and bright folly a few more days. The astral promise is a weekend of Super Fun, perfect for the end of Summer!
Saturday is simply glorious. It features an enthusiastic conjunction of the exuberant Leo Moon with benefic planets Venus and Jupiter. A trine from Uranus to the Moon may bring some nice surprises. It doesn’t get much better than this: Make the most of this awesome day!
While the Moon continues in sunny Leo on Sunday, Saturn squaring the Moon puts things in check and demands attention to limits and boundaries .After enjoying a very fun weekend, honor the demands of reality and reasonable limits. Just after midnight Sunday, the Moon moves into industrious Virgo. Close out the weekend party, and get ready for the vigorous demands of order and hard work.
The Week in Short:
Sunday: Good luck day! Sociable evening with Moon in chatty Gemini.
Monday: Soft, sweet, beautiful inspired day.
Tuesday: Communication and learning highlighted.
Wednesday: Walk softly in beauty.
Thursday: Dynamic, productive day. Insights through writing and communication.
Friday: Fun Friday ushers in a super-fun weekend.
Saturday: glorious, enthusiastic day that might deliver nice surprises.
Sunday: Finish the fun weekend by honoring limits and reality. Get ready for work.
Moon Void-of-Course: This is the time when the Moon makes its last major angular aspect with a planet and before it moves into the next zodiacal sign tropically. This void time, when the Moon is not aspecting a planet, but rather floating on its own, is a time when things do not come together and it is difficult to make decisions. Purchases made during void Moons often turn out to be unsatisfactory and not work out. Appointments often do not come together and meetings do not result in progress or sound, lasting decisions. You will more easily get lost or meander if you are trying to get somewhere.
The VoC Moon times for the next month are listed below so that you can plan meetings, decisions, and purchases at times when the Moon is not VoC; and use the void times for gardening, reading, and routine task work.
