August 7 – 9, 2015
Aries/Aries Rising: You’re receiving a burst of creative inspiration via the messenger gods! It’s going to be more than a one-day kind of project – something expansive that needs to take root over time. Just after this communion between Mercury and Jupiter in Leo, Mercury shifts into Virgo and into your solar house of organizing the earth plane. You can apply yourself to making outlines and organizing the necessary information. By the end of the weekend your ruling planet Mars will be in Leo – this is lovely for you. Lessens some inner-irritations AND propels you toward acting on your creative life force.
Taurus/Taurus Rising: Something large is being birthed right now from a collection of inwardly distilled wisdom… first feel the torrent of it wash over you without needing to worry about what to ‘do’ with it. Then when Mercury moves into Virgo and your solar house of creativity, getting on task about creating the things you’ve been desiring to create will seem so much easier and even more fun. Mars moving into Leo is setting up for you a need to be patient and witnessing of your process without needing to rush your actions – with time and reflection you will see what the best moves are.
Gemini/Gemini Rising: Your ruling planet Mercury is getting mega Qi charged up by forming a conjunction to Jupiter at the start of this weekend, helping you to see some bigger picture possibilities outside of stresses or overwhelming situations that are just needing a little philosophical medicine to set right. You’re assisted by prioritizing and refining your intentions. You are putting in the work for what really matters, not what is just a passing fascination that doesn’t really fit into the big scheme. Mercury also moves into Virgo this weekend – creating a very changeable inner-landscape for you. Good time for journalling and checking in, also initiating contacts that feel good on the gut level.
Cancer/Cancer Rising: This weekend your innermost creative impulses are matched, confronted and assisted with your ability to look at everything from a detached scope. You will be objectifying what is most personal. It is this kind of coolness that can actually restore your motivation. You will be seeing more objectively what your resources are; where before there was a stagnancy you are seeing the way around the wall, just around the corner. This is epically a demonstration of if there is a will, there is a way. You are acting on your values and figuring out how to do so like a scientist.
Leo/Leo Rising: This weekend features an interplay of an expansion and a burst of new creative impulses, or if not new entirely, ones that seem to surface or become articulate from out of chaos — and a STERNNESS, a more realistic kind of gaze and orientation. These differing motivations may support and bolster one another. You’re going to get really serious, really sharp, really focused, on bringing forth in a defined way that which you are desiring to. You can choose your commitments and re-commit where necessary.
Virgo/Virgo Rising: This is a pretty dynamic weekend for you – you have support to embody in more expansive ways some values, ideas, visions, etc. that have been in more intangible forms of late. Overall get ready for some large Qi boosts – Mercury your planetary ruler is moving into your sign at the start of the weekend, and Jupiter is moving into Virgo next week. For now… sit with the things you value most about yourself and accept that these things are already and are going to be even more so of value outwardly as these transits progress. Commit and re-commit to your best practices that enliven you.
Libra/Libra Rising: This weekend is a beautiful opening – still riding the flow of the Last Quarter Moon activating your soul sector, take a moment to feel how you are expanding. You are perfectly secure at this moment. When one phase ends, another has already been seeding. If you feel the open, darkened space within you right now, perfect. This is also something we could call fertility. What it is going to sprout into, the options are so numerous the moment of repose is worth it just for drinking in this expanse without having to act, but knowing that the wheel turns and there will be a perfect moment to act.
Scorpio/Scorpio Rising: So much grace is desired, and you are answering the call. This weekend is like a fulcrum point between what has been formed and what the heart actually wants. The Gemini Moon come the 8th is a Soul Moon for you, taking the dive in even deeper and it is beautiful. With Mars entering Leo, a boost of life force and creation enters your sphere of building a better life. If you act on your heart and your truth the outer forms may shift at first in ways that may not be desirable by first appearances. But you will be making way for more truth, and Mars needs the freedom to create what it cares to, not what it is ordered to.
Sagittarius/Sagittarius Rising: This can be a download heavy kind of weekend, like you have suddenly returned from a season of schooling without really having gone and the insights are coming together in ways that can be configured and translated, rooted. The first part of the weekend you have support to build a bridge between a focus you have been cultivating and creating, and a larger more encompassing structure that will suture the broken spaces. The end of the weekend is more about relationships, and how they are supported by authenticity. There will be room to move away from established patterns – the Gemini Moon helps you engage in a variety of ways.
Capricorn/Capricorn Rising: Very soon into the weekend the messenger God Mercury leaves what can be like your underworld and enters into a much more expansive space for you. Your heart is being called to have strength from deep within your own wellspring. It calls for a return of pleasure where it has been distracted, with a slow simmering heat as you give into the space that is opening now. Enjoy the repose – the Moon transits later into the weekend take you into a more meticulous space, epic for putting language to what was before formless (language here meaning any system of symbols) and for pinning down things that have eluded you.
Aquarius/Aquarius Rising: If there are a LOT of expansive possibilities running through your mind, take note that this weekend will help you merge with the most important one (or ones). This weekend also includes some inner work for you that will strengthen what you are putting forth in relationships and in your career/work life. The waning Moon moving through your creative sector through the end of the weekend is great for settling in joyfully to what is already present for you, if not apparent right away by removing whatever is cluttering your lens to see it, whether it’s an attitude or something equivalent to ‘junk food’ in life.
Pisces/Pisces Rising: On the process of becoming a better version of yourself, at any moment you get stuck or stagnant, you just need some new data to draw upon than the storyline of what’s off. Either you can find something to inspire you, or you can settle in deeply to the inner-voice (or both) to renew your life force. The gaze within helps you re-attune to your true wealth of inner resource, and so you could not help but to attract outer advancements as well. The Moon as it shifts into Gemini also brings in inner-messages. Dream journalling, meditation, and journalling in general are all good things to help you tap in, heal and advance.
