Weekly Horoscope for Aug. 27-Sept. 2

Sunday, Monday: the Moon is in Capricorn
It would be good to stay centered, balanced, and organized in preparation for the Full Moon coming up. Pretty much remain cautious about anything new or offbeat. 

Tuesday, Wednesday: the Moon is in Aquarius
Be careful about bouncing around off the walls and doing something you will regret later. Mercury is retrograde* right now and is in the sign Virgo. Think and act with clarity & purity. 

Thursday (Full Moon/Blue Moon), Friday: the Moon is in Pisces
“once in a blue moon” – a phrase that pretty much everyone has heard at one time or another. Look at your astrology chart and see which house (section) has the sign Pisces on the cusp (beginning edge). This is the area of your life that will have a double impact (or more) of whatever the Full Moon is bringing. If you don’t have a chart, be attentive to the sign Pisces and be aware of the potential for disappointments, disillusions, a view through rose-colored glasses, a person or situation that will attempt to take advantage of you, etc. A Blue Moon always ramps up whatever the Full Moon indicates. 

aturday: the Moon is in Aries
In response to this week’s indicators to slow down and be careful, an Aries Moon will likely bring a feeling of necessary fast action. Ideas are fine at this time, but wait for the Moon to transition into Taurus (next week) to see how they could pan out. 

When reading this weekly horoscope, check your astrology chart to find which house (section of your chart) has the current Moon sign on the cusp (the beginning edge) & apply forecast information to that area of your life as well. For example, if the Moon is in Leo and one of the suggestions is to entertain – however Leo is located in the 12th house of your chart, which is an inward energy place…then have a small, quiet gathering. By contrast, if Leo is located in the 1st house of your chart, an outward energy place…have a party! It is also interesting to note when the current Moon is in the same sign as your birth Moon and to see how the flavor of that day carries through the following 30 days.

Current Asteroid Transits:
Ceres this asteroid is associated with giving yourself lots of care as well as nurturing others. Be sure that someone is not taking advantage of you during this process.
Pallas – this asteroid rules wisdom & purity of action in your vocation. Carefully examine your vocation/avocation to see how well it meets your needs (or how well you fit within its parameters).
Juno – one of the things that Juno rules is love partnerships, and one of the things that Leo rules is romance. So put the two together and something could be happening.
Vesta – gather information about something you really love, something you have always really loved.
Chiron – release pent-up anger; chart a new course for yourself.

Note: Weekly horoscope timeframes for Moon signs, void-of-course periods, and current planet & asteroid positions are noted for Eastern time zone (USA). Please adjust according to your own location. Times are not given if the void-of-course Moon occurs for a very short period or if it occurs during the night (based on same Eastern time zone).

∗Mercury Retrograde – the speed of the planet slows down considerably. Communications, paperwork, electronics, traffic and mail can become very mixed-up, delayed, or go on the ‘fritz’ during this time. A situation will be in the process of changing, so wait until Mercury is direct (resumes its regular speed) to finalize anything. In general, maintain a slower, more cautious pace in daily affairs. Always allow at least two days before (to slow down) and after (to resume regular activities) a Mercury retrograde period. (Read More about Mercury Retrograde including Direct & In Station)

*Venus Retrograde – just like Mercury, the speed of the planet slows down considerably. Relationships, especially love relationships, will likely be more in the background than upfront. Take it easy with expressed feelings of that nature and agree to address any concerns after Venus goes Direct. (See info about Mercury Direct & In-Station and apply that to Venus when appropriate.)

*Mars Retrograde – just like Mercury, the speed of the planet slows down considerably. Decisions and actions will be more difficult to implement. Avoid confrontations. Be careful about cuts & burns. (See info about Mercury Direct & In-Station and apply that to Mars when appropriate.)

**Total Lunar Eclipse – when the Moon appears to be completely covered.
**Partial Lunar Eclipse – the Full Moon is not completely covered.
**Lunar Eclipse/A – Appulse, a penumbral eclipse, the Moon enters only the penumbral of the earth. (penumbral = shadowy, partial shadow, marginal area)
