Today's Astrology Forecast | August 21, 2019 - wanting what makes the most sense/cents, an afternoon shocker, optimistic thinking, good news, always that fly in the ointment

The Moon is in Taurus now - the sign of her exaltation.

We are nurtured through security and comfort for the next couple days. She will trine Mars (in let's get this thing organized Virgo) at 4:32AM EDT and hook up with a retrograde Uranus at 1:33PM EDT, so expect the unexpected this afternoon.

Venus, ruler of Taurus, moves into grounded and practical Virgo. While Mercury, ruler of Virgo trines Jupiter and inconjuncts Saturn.

Mercury's trine to Jupiter (newly direct and encouraging us toward new opportunities) encourages optimistic thinking. Probably we are thinking BIG. Good news could come in or just the right information. That inconjunct to a retrograde Saturn keeps us grounded in reality/our feet to the fire with something - maybe an old responsibility/commitment that needs to be wrapped up.

Venus into Virgo - she will meet Mars here later in the week - means Virgos and Virgo Risings get more attractive - both easier on the eye and it becomes easier for them to attract what they want/need. ALL of our natal Virgo houses get more attractive, too. Our natal Venuses become more practical. 

Venus isn't buying the flashy stuff she was into in Leo. Now she wants quality. Now she wants it to last and she wants it to make sense/cents.

Here's where we put the time into fixing what isn't working IF it's worth the effort. 

Over the next few weeks - she will be in Virgo until September 14th - we will be going over what we love/want/have with a more critical eye. What gets to stay and what has to go. Keep in mind that critical eye can become just plain critical - everyone's standards can get over the top. Perfectionism is one of Virgo's calling cards, so let's watch for it and not expect too much from other people, and from ourselves.

We will love (Venus) having things organized and efficient (Virgo) and having Mars, here, too, means we will take the actions needed to make this happen. Loving (Venus) and caring for our precious pets (Virgo) can play a bigger role in our lives now, too, as well as service to other people and our daily work. Venus in Virgo wants us to love the stuff we do everyday. What part of our daily routine needs an upgrade?

It's the little things now that count the most now. Focus on the details. One step in front of the other.

Make a list of what needs to be done and start crossing things off - sometimes I put things on the list I have already done, so I can start out with some things already crossed off. Virgo rules service, so helping others is helping ourselves - just don't take this too far either. Door mats are not needed in the Age of Aquarius (selfish jerks aren't needed either).

The Sun is at the end of Leo - this is where it was two years ago when we had that big Eclipse. Something is ending/evolving. Leo brings the drama, but the other energies will keep things more down-to-earth. Move toward what makes the most sense/cents (Venus in Virgo) and what feels good (Moon in Taurus) AND enjoy the end of summer (Leo season) - have some fun, too!
