Weekly Astro Forecast – Aug 23 – Aug 29, 2015


Here is the Ask the Astrologers Astrology Forecast for the week of Aug 23 – Aug 29, 2015:

This week starts with the Sun entering Virgo on Sunday. Thus begins the last month of the Summer for those in the Northern hemisphere and the last week of winter for those in the Southern hemisphere.

The Sun moving through Virgo shifts the focus from creativity, self-expression and play to duty, diligence and work. It’s a good time to inventory and think about changes you want to make. Focus on changes to your diet and health, your relationships with colleagues and service to others are all featured during this time.

On Wednesday, the Sun conjuncts Jupiter and Mercury sextiles Saturn. The Sun / Jupiter conjunction is a “feel good” aspect that can boost your confidence and see you feeling more optimistic and enthusiastic. Sun / Jupiter transits are said to be lucky, but they can also be overindulgent. So don’t get too carried away. It’s a good time to count the blessings in your life and focus on what you have rather than what you lack.

The Saturn / Mercury sextile is good for making plans or ironing out important details. As Mercury is in Virgo and Saturn is in Scorpio — both of them at anaretic degrees — you could be putting a serious dent in any research you’re doing that involves scientific or step-by-step analysis. This aspect is also good for serious discussions that require you to get to the heart of the matter.

Mercury enters Libra on Thursday, paving the way for pleasant conversation and social interactions. Mercury in Libra is objective, impartial and fair. It’s good at exercising tact and diplomacy, but not so good at making decisions. You may feel the need to weigh the pros and cons of every situation before you reach a conclusion, and even then you’re likely to settle on a middle ground.

Mercury in Libra — especially at 0 degrees — is known to struggle with indecision. It tends to vacillate or straddle the fence rather than take a stand. It’s good for debating and arbitrating, as it’s able to see the validity in any side of an argument. But it can also be frustratingly wishy-washy.

On Saturday, Mercury conjuncts the North Node (and opposes the South Node). This can manifest as a chance encounter that turns out to be anything but in the end. Whether it’s a past-life connection or just someone you meet unexpectedly that turns into a significant connection, you want to pay attention. Also be mindful of what you say and how you say it. Mercury represents communications and the Nodes are said to be karmic in nature. So pay attention to what you put out there as it could have long term repercussions.

Mars and Pluto are also inconjunct on Saturday, which can lead to some tense moments during the day. You want to keep your emotions in check as this aspect can bring hidden resentments to the surface and trigger uncomfortable reactions. You may also find yourself dealing with other people’s unreasonable demands.

The Full Moon also takes place on Saturday at 6° Pisces, very close to Neptune. This is know in some Native American tribes as the “Sturgeon Moon.” As it’s perigee — or nearest to the Earth — it’s also a Supermoon.

The Pisces Full Moon shines the spotlight on dreams, fantasies, intuition and inspiration. It’s sensitive, compassionate and kind. The conjunction to Neptune increases psychic awareness and produces vivid dreams. This is a good time to get an overview of the changes you’ve made over the last couple weeks and evaluate the progress you’ve made. Because this is one of the most loving and compassionate moons, it’s also a good time to seek out forgiveness and to grant it yourself.

That’s it for this week, see you next Sunday!
