Astrology Overview for August 14-20, 2017

The week begins with Mercury’s retrograde really beginning to bite home. But perhaps what is even more telling is the fact that Mercury is in an opposition with Neptune and right through till Friday. This is not an aspect to be taken lightly. Neptune is very shimmering. It’s fantastic for spirituality, the arts, creativity, and tuning into the less tangible sides of our existence, and especially now it is back in its home zone of Pisces since 2012.

But Neptune can also distort reality, and because Mercury is very much about facts and figures, and particularly in one of its two home zones as it is now of Virgo, this and the combination of the retrograde means that we need to be particularly careful when dealing with any kind of paperwork, administration, contracts, but also in balancing our health. Why would this be so? Because Virgo is about health, but it’s also about purity. Neptune rules the things that we tend to use in order to escape reality, so if we imbibe in those to any degree beyond what’s really good for us, this is going to impact on our nervous systems, which Mercury rules, and also a clarity of thought and action.

However ironically, speaking of action, there is a fantastic angle between Mars and Jupiter which continues from last week, which is just so trailblazing, and gives us the opportunity to live in the moment and be a bit more daring and see where it takes us. If there is something that you’re very clear about your strategy, but you also instinctively feel it’s the right thing to do this can be a fine time to go for it. We can have a sense of confidence that everything will work out fine. The problem with Mars and Jupiter in any combination is they can trick us into believing that we can’t fail, and clearly with the more challenging influences this week, there is the potential for things to go awry.

From Monday to Friday also sees Venus in an opposition with Pluto. In a kind of mawkish fascinated way, I find aspects between these two planets always absolutely fascinating. One of the reasons I got into doing what I do is simply because I’m addicted to knowing about people and what makes them tick. And this aspect is a great deal to do with our desires. Now desires are a very good thing because they gives us a sense of passion for life. And used in the right kind of way that can stimulate growth and provide great opportunities for enjoyment and in the case of Venus and Pluto a deep sense of unity when it comes to relationships and even sensual pleasures. Now clearly Pluto is about power, so if anyone seems to be quite seductively trying to tempt you into a get rich quick scheme this week or even a sexual relationship, you just need to be really clear about what your terms of references are and just how flexible you want to be about these.

The end of the week however does see the Solar Eclipse in Leo. This is forging an angle to Uranus the planet of freedom. Of course Leonine energy is very much about self-expression, so the inference is clear here that there is an opportunity in the next six months to get hold of whatever essential energy drives us on and try to use it to transform our situations but in a way where we don’t’s resist possibilities because it’s stepping outside our comfort zones. So this might be a scintillating period but also one that can create a degree of turbulence.
