In the Stars August 29-September 6…shining light on the astrology of the week: Full Moon August 29

The Sun continues its movement through the sign of Virgo tropically. The Sun is buoyed by its closeness with Jupiter this week, expanding its potential. This is a month for self-improvement. Clean and organize your house. Power through your “to do” list. Put the steps in motion for one way you will improve yourself and your life.

Saturday and Sunday, August 29-30, the Moon is in sweet, inspiring Pisces. The Moon is Full on Saturday (11:53 AM PDT exact). The powerful planetary alignments on Saturday deliver expansiveness, vision, inspiration, and depth of feeling. Let your imagination soar and power up your intentions several notches.

Sunday’s planetary energy is relatively quiet. The Moon’s sextile to Saturn gives some discipline to the visionary, ethereal Pisces Moon influence. This is a quiet, meditative day. Swim. Create a piece of art. Write a poem. Or…just relax.

Monday is the start of a new work week and a new lunar cycle with the Moon moving into Aries early morning. This day is supercharged with inspiration and creativity. Mars and Venus are conjunct in Leo–a very creative combination itself—in the zodiacal sign symbolizing creative self-expression. The Sun is opposite Neptune. There may be some confusion in the air, but this is an aspect that can infuse vision and inspiration. The Moon aspects Mercury and Pluto, which gives greater mental focus. This is a day to go to your studio and let your mind and hands imagine and create. Use this day’s powerful, creative energy to make it memorable.

Tuesday starts with a bang when the Aries Moon joins Uranus! Expect something exciting or surprising early. However, the Moon goes Void-of-Course for the rest of the day, so don’t try to do anything requiring decisions or definitive action, as they will likely change or become undone in the future. This would be a good time to clean your office, home, or garden, or catch up on reading and routine email.

The exalted Taurus Moon shines its light Wednesday and Thursday, highlighting all things sensual: inspiring music, sensual touch, visual beauty, and delicious food. A Jupiter-Uranus aspect may stir up something remarkable or unexpected. Taurus is a fixed earth sign, symbolizing money and resources. Against the backdrop of the mutable Earth Virgo Sun’s energy, this would be a good time to focus on finances. Review budgets and accounts, set up new systems, and clean up any backlog of bills or financial matters.

The Gemini Moon Friday and Saturday stirs up curiosity through conversation and connection. Enjoy a convivial lunch with colleagues, and then plan to enjoy a sociable evening as well. Conversation can change the world. Friday’s Gemini Moon aspects can help us do that through our engaged discussions with colleagues and friends.

Saturday delivers a Sun-Pluto trine in Virgo that supports us to get a lot of work accomplished. More sparkling lunar connections will further the generation and exchange of ideas, making it a lot more fun to power through our tasks. Let great ideas flow! The Moon goes VoC Saturday evening (4:04 PM PDT), so put your work away and enjoy a fun and frolicking evening.

Sunday will be off to a slow and meandering start with the Moon continuing its long VoC until 10:40 AM (PDT). Then the Moon moves into Cancer, crowning a day for home and family activities. Cook some delicious comfort food to share with people near and dear to you. Venus is stationary direct, after being in retrograde motion for the past six weeks. When planets are stationary, changing direction, their energy is amplified. Venus symbolizes relationships and finances. This would be a good day to review your financial, or relational, goals and commitments, and think about how you want to move them forward now. The planetary positions and aspects make this a sweet and generous and compassionate day.

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 don’t come together and it’s difficult to make decisions. Purchases made during void Moons often turn out to be unsatisfactory and not work out. Appointments often don’t come together and meetings don’t result in progress or sound, lasting decisions. You will more easily get lost or meander if you’re 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.
