Your horoscope for August 25 to 31, 2011
There is much to reconcile. Another important curve is negotiated as the square-off between Mars and Saturn completes. Building for the past week, the aspect brings matters to an end. It can peak a moral dilemma, deliver a dose of sobering reality, or release a bottleneck of pressure. It forces accountability too. No matter what the HST referendum outcome delivers, we’ll have a price to pay.
Mercury retrograde ends on Friday at 3:30 p.m. You can put it into action now, but keep your radar sharp. The roller coaster of uncertainty will continue at least until September 8, when Mercury and Neptune finish the cycle begun at the end of July. The coming weeks will hatch timely potentials and expose more of the hidden keys.
Sunday’s new moon in industrious Virgo is accompanied by Venus and opposed by Chiron. It marks another match strike along destiny’s timeline. More effective correction, healing, and implementation are now possible.
Correlating to the wounded healer and maverick archetype, Chiron accompanies all peak life transitions. When teamed with the sun, iconic figures and individuals experience major milestones. Jack Layton has fulfilled an extraordinary destiny. Shine on, Jack!
Jupiter retrograde in Taurus, beginning on Tuesday, can perforate the previously impenetrable or secure, and dislodge the immovable or stuck.
March 21 - April 20
Vacation season is nearing its end, but let’s not wear out that four-letter W word just yet. Ending retrograde on Friday, Mercury in sunny Leo will continue to shine for you until September 8. Through mid-September you’ll be gifted with a reprieve from stellar pressure. You can coast. However, get into gear now and you could strike gold.
April 21 - May 20
Social, romantic, or indulging as the mood strikes, this smooth-rolling weekend should hit it just right. Sunday’s new moon sets an opportune backdrop for new initiatives. As of Wednesday, when Jupiter in Taurus begins four months of retrograde, rewards may not be as visible or as instant as they will be later. On the other hand, karmic destiny can prove readily evident.
May 21 - June 21
As of Friday—when Mercury retrograde ends—you’ll have the green light to shop, finalize plans, sign contracts, et cetera. In fact on Sunday and Monday, home, family, and financial matters are likely to sort out well. By Tuesday, Jupiter will turn retrograde and begin to stoke specific potentials with more vitality. Not all is visible to you yet. Stay vigilant for signs and clues.
June 22 - July 22
Whether it’s a sobering statement or a simple matter of fact, you have reached an end. Don’t dwell on what it’s taken out of you. Direct your total attention to here, now, and tomorrow. Sunday’s revitalizing new moon in Virgo offers fresh wind. Thrust yourself into this new chapter and do what must be done. Your full commitment is required—in fact, it’s essential.
July 23 - August 22
Mercury now ends retrograde, but it will continue in Leo through September 8. Along with the fresh fuel of Sunday’s new moon, you should feel physically and creatively revitalized. Money-making prospects and self-improvement goals are energized too. An opportune week lies ahead. Keep yourself up to speed. There is more to be accomplished and gained than is obvious now.
August 23 - September 22
Sunday’s time-is-ripe new moon is infused with plenty of promise, especially where you’d most like to see it. Even so, there can be delays or stumbling blocks before you get going. Once Mercury advances into Virgo on September 9, you’ll hit another starting gate. From this point forward, your progress will be more measurable. Look to November’s eclipse for the next momentum thrust.
September 23 - October 23
Stuck no longer! Sunday’s seeding new moon teams with fresh potential. Start looking for it. Yes, you’ll face added uncertainty and risk as you cross your new ground, but supportive stars now supply you with all the right tools for the job. Watch for Jupiter’s retrograde cycle to dismantle the walls, relationships, rationales, or excuses that have previously held you back.
October 24 - November 22
An ambition, project, or consuming matter will move to the next level now. Watch for a contract, professional development, or key relationship to advance onto a faster track. Sunday and Monday can help you to clarify what works best for you. Stay open-minded. The start of Jupiter’s retrograde cycle can create a departure or change the score in some unexpected way.
November 23 - December 21
Beyond the end of summer (please use a thumbs down here), the final stretch of a goal-reaching or waiting period shortens now (please use a thumbs up here). Through September 8, Mercury in Leo has the future looking like a place you want to go. Sunday’s new moon positions you at a lucrative fresh-start chapter. Searching for an answer or the it factor? Keep on the watch; you’ll find it soon.
December 22 - January 20
External pressures or opinions may have had a forceful impact as of late. The collective anxiety has likely rubbed off on you to some extent too. Thankfully, Mars and the stellar gang will now ease up. As of Sunday’s opportune new moon, you should find you gain excellent ground everywhere you aim.
January 21 - February 19
Mercury retrograde completes as of Friday, but allow more time to feel your way along a relationship or financial matter. What comes next, including the actions of others, will reveal all you need to know. What is meant to be can be harvested now. If it falls through, you don’t need it! Expect more—and better. Search elsewhere.
February 20 - March 20
The end of Mercury retrograde signals the beginning of a healing and repair cycle for employment, health, and heart matters. If a particular relationship unravelled during the past few weeks, it most likely needed to. Let the wisdom of acceptance, along with faith in your deserving and courageous initiative, be the prize you hold. Destiny drives this moment.
