Astrology Forecast for Creatives | Week of August 27th - the eclipse PUSHES back, renewed energy for something from the past, hard work pays off

As the Solar Eclipse in Leo energy continues to play out - this week and next are again times when direction changing events/information can seem to come out of nowhere.

This week it is all about Mars. He is hitting the North Node and then meeting up with unpredictable Uranus - our physical body, initiative, passion, action, courage, maybe anger, a fight, an argument, a push. Then next week it is all about Mercury. He is meeting up with Mars and stationing direct at the eclipse degree - our mind, communications, ideas, information, conversations, decisions.

After September 5th - the decision is made, the writing is on the wall. Something has been re-invented or put to bed.

On SUNDAY, Mars meets up with the North Node of our collective way forward. This is part of our eclipse story. Something, and this is Mars so we could be talking about an - action, initiative, anger, passion, courage, push, fight, argument, contest - forces our step in the right direction. 

Jupiter (luck, expansion) sextiles (opportunity) Saturn (time, responsibility, work, authority). Yes, the harder we work, the luckier we get.

Earlier work can pay off now with a LUCKY break. Work started now can pay off later. Hard work makes us lucky. Patience pays off. Long lasting and positive results can come from opportunities and responsibilities taken on now. This energy is exact now but will be in play for a while.

With Saturn in Sagittarius and answering to Jupiter - this is a double dose of Sagittarius positivity to resolve all that we need to resolve before Saturn moves into Capricorn at the end of December. With Jupiter in Libra - lucky breaks can also come through women and partnerships. Remember the rewards are Saturnian coming through hard work and over time BUT they are long-lasting.

On MONDAY, the Moon is void until 3:48PM EDT. It's not a good time to start anything new or launch something that you want something to come of. Feel free to sleep in. Stick to routine matters. The Moon is in Scorpio which is good energy for solitary research and problem solving. Shortly after the Moon moves into Sagittarius in the late afternoon she will square Mercury (retrograde in Virgo) - stress and tension come from needing to make the big picture and the fine details work together.

This is also a good time to put our foot in our mouth.

Hopefully the Moon's move late Monday from water into fire will aid the first eclipse victims in the Texas floodwaters.

On TUESDAY, the Moon is in Sagittarius. We are thinking BIG.

We have the first quarter Moon of the month with the Moon (in Sagittarius) squaring the Sun (in Virgo). This is similar to last night's energy - tension around the big picture and the fine details working together.

Maybe we need to finish one thing (be satisfied with it) before starting something else?

The Sun is in Virgo so planning, taking care of the details, using our resources wisely is the best use of our energy now.

By late afternoon that big thinking Sagittarius Moon will be squaring dreamy Neptune (strong in Pisces), so knowing where we start and another person/situation's energy leaves off will be tricky. People will be emotional and easily deceived. It will be hard to know what is real and what is fake. The rose colored glasses are on. Watch for the activation of addictive behaviors. The Sun is in earthy Virgo - stay grounded, do the Virgo practical thing.

On WEDNESDAY, the Moon's contacts with Saturn and Jupiter have us all over the place. We could go from down to up in a New York minute. Then the Moon (still in Sagittarius) moves on to trine first Mars and then Uranus (Grand Fire Trine). Ambitious, inspirational - good socializing/fire starting energy as long as we let go of any preconceived notions about how this night is going to end up! This could bring us Luck with a capital L especially when it comes to being in the right place at the right time. Be out and about. Take action.

On THURSDAY, the Moon enters Capricorn. We slow down. We get serious. We get to work. We could be dealing with serious people/authority, serious situations or just knuckling down. Our survival instinct kicks in.

Mercury (moving backward now) travels from Virgo back into Leo. He'll be covering our old Leo ground through September 5th and be back in Virgo on September 11th. This is a do-over with our universal Leo themes - creative projects, romance, children, fun, recreation - or our personal Leo house theme. Where is late Leo in your natal chart? Yes, this is eclipse stuff.

Note the dates. Also add to your calendar a heads up for September 2nd and 3rd. This is all related to last week's Solar Eclipse. The new is emerging now AND it's emerging through the old.

On FRIDAY, the Moon (in Capricorn) conjuncts Pluto. This is good energy for our goals and ambitions. Rewards for hard work. We could be dealing with authority figures and stepping into our responsibility. Stuff that has been hidden could surface now to be dealt with.

On SATURDAY, Mars is trining (brakes off) Uranus. Try something new and take some new action. This energy will give us a strong need for independence. New opportunities come through taking new risks. Great energy to get new projects off the ground. This could bring something unexpected into our eclipse story and a renewed energy/passion for SOMETHING FROM THE PAST.

Remember I write about dates when aspects are exact. The aspects (not so much the Moon which just moves too fast) can often be experienced days before or after. Keep this in mind. Also the eclipse stuff is still playing out and eclipse events often hit one week or month before or after the dates here and then unwind over several months.

xo all

Trump's chart is hit rather bigly at the end of this week and into the weekend (exact on Saturday), part of his Mars eclipse story, so we will see what happens then - could also be the stuff that hit the end of this past week.
