Going with the Flow: Definitely Recommended -- Astrology Forecast for Mon., Aug. 7th - Sun., Aug. 13th, 2017

Please note that all times given below are Eastern Daylight Savings Time -- to change the listed times to your own timezone, I recommend clicking here for the time and date converter

Last week was exciting... lots of forward movement, at the same time it all felt a little unsettling as well... no surprise there, given that we are in Eclipse season.

Before we get to this week's forecast, I have one quick announcement: 
Very last chance to sign up for my FORECASTING FORUM, this Monday at 4pmPT/ 7pm ET/midnight BST (London-time). Please note that we have two Eclipses this month! Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius (this Monday) and Solar Eclipse in Leo (Aug. 21st). 

If you want to know how they are going to impact you personally, join me live or sign up for the mp4-video recording. Other than booking a reading with me, this is the highest level of support you can get -- and it's only $24 for the 90-minute webinar. To register now, click here 

If you would like to join live, please keep in mind that registration will close an hour before the live event begins, if you register after 6pm EDT on Monday you will receive the mp4-video presentation of the webinar.

This week's headline items: a very powerful Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius becomes exact on Monday afternoon; Mercury's station intensifies on Wednesday -- and comes to a halt, starting its 3-week retrograde phase, on Saturday evening.

There will also be three Moon VoC phases this week: Tuesday afternoon (for almost 3 hours), Thursday late morning (for almost 16 hours), and Sunday early morning (for a little over 2.5 hours). 

Monday (August 7th): The Moon remains in freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius, where it will journey until Tuesday early evening. With this Moon placement, we often feel emotionally detached; when we do connect to our feelings, it's typically from a cerebral, intellectual place. We need a cause or project that resonates -- preferably one where we can connect with like-minded people.

For the next couple of days, we'll tend to be more eccentric or experimental; future-related issues like politics or education call to us now, as do unusual or even esoteric subjects like Astrology, UFOs... indeed anything from outer space. Our scientific approach to things leans on originality and ingenuity; we definitely love being unconventional. 

The increased value we place on personal and emotional independence could make us come off as indifferent or cold in one-on-one interactions. That said, we can still be friendly and kind, provided we aren't pushed into doing something conventional or unethical.   

Monday at 2:11pm EDT, an extra-powerful Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse becomes exact in 15 degrees of Aquarius. The entrance of the Moon into Aquarius on Sunday morning started the energetic build up towards this extra-powerful Full Moon

Only once every six months do the Sun, Moon, and Earth align precisely enough for a Solar or Lunar Eclipse to occur. Eclipses are always powerfully connected to the Moon Nodes and thus our Soul's Journey. If you’d like to learn more about this month's Full Moon, click here to watch my Lunar Eclipse video.

This is the first of two Eclipses within the next four weeks. As such, its energy is more intense than your typical Full Moon; given that it's happening in the Aquarius/Leo polarity, that intensity is all about becoming aware of dogmatic, rigid thinking and opening our heart chakras. As we do this, we can joyfully and actively participate in shaping a future that serves all humans, while supporting the healthy evolution of mankind and this planet.

I will talk about these upcoming Eclipses in more detail in my Forecasting Forum — if you want to know how the Eclipses might impact you personally, feel free to join us -- we will apply what's coming up, to our own birth charts. The Forum will be live only a couple of hours after the Lunar Eclipse becomes exact: Monday, Aug. 7that 4pm PDT/7pm EDT/midnight BST (London-time); for more info or to register, click here

Life-changing revelations are more likely over the next two weeks — and with them, shifts in our consciousness — and the impact of an Eclipse's energy also lasts longer than a regular Lunation (anywhere from 6 months to 2 years!)

This is the second Lunar Eclipse in a 23-month cycle of Eclipses, all connected to the Leo/Aquarius polarity; the cycle in question began in February 2017 with the Lunar Eclipse in Leo and will last until Jan. 2019. 

Think back to February of this year: What started shifting for you, in your attitudes towards the collective, humanity, like-minded people? Was there likewise a shift in your desire for joy, self-expression and heartfelt actions?

Lunar Eclipses generally bring attention to our "emotional body” and our relationships; they also connect us more fully to our Soul’s journey (as shown by the Moon Nodes). This particular Eclipse focuses on the relationship between the individual (Leo) and the collective (Aquarius). 

We become aware of what has been suppressed or ignored -- or, this being a South Node Eclipse, addressed, redefined and released -- in regards to the lower vibrations of the Aquarian energy.

The shadow side of Aquarius includes the feeling of being detached from our own life force, center, or personal creative process, while being overly attached to the mind and its functions: idealized visions, rigid thinking about the future. Headiness is likely and mind activity could be at an all time high. 

A classic setup here would see us disconnecting from our inner joy moment-to-moment for the sake of improving our future, “humanity" or "the world at large". 

Aquarius also deals with group-consciousness and group-mind. We might therefore shy away from standing out, because we fear rejection or ostracism; ask yourself (and be really honest with yourself here): Have you been hiding out on the sidelines? How have you avoided following your heart? 

Leo symbolizes the expression of our own individual light, gifts, and inner divine spark. Aquarius, on the other hand, symbolizes the power of community and collaboration for bringing about a common vision -- where the whole becomes greater than the sum of its parts. 

To boil this down, you could say that Leo represents our individual self-expression, and Aquarius our vision for humankind. So how to achieve that balance? Might one contribute to the other? 

Ask yourself: How can I shine my light with my heart fully pumping? What might be possible for humanity's future, if I contributed my joy and individual creative process to the collective? If I had to pick a team, what might it feel like to pick “Team Humanity"?

Let's also take a look at what Uranus (the modern ruler of Aquarius) is doing: Uranus is still stationing in Aries at the time of this powerful Full Moon; it is therefore exalted (even though it is already in retrograde motion). Uranus amplifies the call to make a radical break from old patterns or traditions. 

Ask yourself: What has become stale and needs a new approach? What ideas and insights am I receiving that are pointing me in that direction? 

Uranus trines the North Node in Leo; this represents our collective Soul's Journey at this time, showing us that every one of us can be an agent of change for a better future for all who dwell on this planet — and the good news is, we simply need to connect to our own talents and to what brings us joy — we become an active participant simply by bringing our own uniqueness and genius to the table. 

Ask yourself: What's my special genius? How am I unique? Different? 

It's important to realize that our future is in our hands -- and our vision calls on us to express our talents full out. Ask yourself: Where could I shine my light, for it to be truly seen? What are my talents? What comes easily? What brings me joy?

What’s more, when we join forces with like-minded people, we accomplish much more than we could on our own: synergy and innovation arise when we come together to move towards a better future. 

Where am I being called to make a difference? Where might my people be found? What might be possible with a bigger network of like-minded people? What if making the world a better place were fun? What if it's not about converting others, but simply about spreading joy? 

Now, let's talk about Saturn -- the traditional ruler of Aquarius: At the time of the Full Moon, Saturn in Sagittarius (also retrograde) trines the Sun and the North Node in Leo, and sextiles Jupiter in Libra

These aspects all bring opportunities for connecting with others from a mature, yet heart-centered place, while replacing and modifying "old" thinking/belief structures.

This is an opportunity for a realistic approach to that vision of a better future. We are no longer able to "do" life the same way we did it 10 (or even 5) years ago. We are more self-aware: our feelings, intuition, limitations... 

A lot of us are waking up to the reality that everyone plays their part -- and that life is meant to be lived from a wholesome place, one that includes the heart and the head, in fact, all of who we are. 

Ask yourself: What could I express responsibly and joyfully, that might bring about change in my own life — and perhaps even inspire others to follow my example? What actions could I take that would serve the collective? Or a particular group of people? Who could use my support at this time? And how can I give it? 

There are so many more aspects we could talk about with this Lunar Eclipse chart — and I will go into more details about all the other aspects at the Monthly Forecasting Forum later today (on August 7th at 7pm EDT) click here to register -- but in the interest of time, I'm going to finish up for now with the last of three exact squares between Jupiter in Libra and Pluto in Capricorn

The first time we felt this aspect was in late November/early December of 2016, then again from mid-March until mid-April of 2017 — and this is the last of the squares that we will experience until August 21st, when the Solar Eclipse in Leo becomes exact. 

Think back to Nov./Dec. 2016 and March/April 2017... what came up for you during those time periods? What changes in perception did you experience? What were you able to release from your past that was holding you back from building an empowering future?

With this combo, partnerships which are not mutually beneficial are likely to come under pressure to be renegotiated in favor of win-win solutions. Deep changes in our beliefs are now possible -- if we allow ourselves to let go of what no longer works around our social structures, relationships or long-term goals… We are called upon to surrender our fears and start trusting the divine power that is within each of us.

Ask yourself: How have my beliefs and expectations shifted since last year? Where did I have to surrender some fears so I could feel more empowered? In what ways has my perception of life expanded? What are some beliefs that are still asking to be transformed? What about my relationships? What about my long-term goals? What fears or attachments are showing up there? What might be possible if I came to this honestly and consciously?

This Lunar Eclipse shows us that there is always work to be done -- and we all have the power to do it. All we have to do is look into our own heart and see the strength and love lying there. As best as you can, trust that you have what it takes to make a difference for yourself and others. 

Also in connection with this Eclipse, I want to share some really great news! My dear friend Krista Mitchell, who is an amazing Spiritual Author, Crystal Teacher, and Mystic, has agreed to collaborate with me and record Guided Meditations that are custom-tailored to each of my Full and New Moon videos. The Meditations give you some extra support for each Lunar cycle and come out twice a month! How amazing is that? :-)

So, with this Lunar Eclipse, we present the first Guided Meditation -- it's for sale on Krista's website: www.krista-mitchell.com -- get help staying grounded while fully embodying the highest energies of the Eclipse, engaging with the process actively, and feeling nurtured from within... 

If getting through this Eclipse season with ease appeals, I highly recommend it! I have done many guided mediations with Krista, and in my humble opinion, she is TheBest

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 10-20 degrees of Aquarius, Leo, Taurus or Scorpio? If so, you may feel the effects of this Full Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer). And if you’d like to learn more about this month's Full Moon, click here to watch my Lunar Eclipse video.

Tuesday (August 8th): The Moon remains in freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquariusuntil 5:56pm EDT (see Monday for details). 

Tuesday at 3:07pm EDT, we enter a  Moon void of course (VoC). that lasts for almost 3 hours until 5:56pm EDT. Use this intuitive time as an opportunity to connect to like-minded people and inspire them. As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don't start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Tuesday mid-late afternoon ahead of time ;-)

Tuesday at 5:56pm EDT, the Moon moves into creative, sensitive Pisces, where it will journey until Friday very early morning. This Moon placement often finds us more sensitive, intuitive, idealistic and imaginative than normal. We also have a greater capacity for compassion, sympathy and affection for all -- but especially for those who suffer or can be regarded as the underdog. 

But... that very idealism could also be our downfall at this time: We tend to see the best in everyone and everything, and when reality doesn't match our idyllic vision, we might feel upset and even victimized by those harsh realities. A way out of this is to channel our idealism into spiritual or creative endeavors. 

It's also a great time for releasing fears -- especially the ones based on a sense of separation -- and experiencing "oneness". Feelings tend to flow more freely; as best as you can, let them -- in fact, "going with the flow" is the best way to go for the next couple of days. 

Wednesday (August 9th): the Moon remains in creative, sensitive Pisces all day (see Tuesday early evening for details).

Wednesday late afternoon, a somewhat challenging Sun/Pluto aspect becomes exact at 4:10pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect from Tuesday evening on; it will remain strong until Thursday evening. We feel uneasy about something, sort of awkward; we need to make a choice. We need to develop inner awareness, so we can make adjustments. 

This might concern compromising with others. Our fear of being manipulated might make us stubborn or manipulative ourselves. As best as you can, keep choosing the "better" alternative/the higher road, adjusting as needed.

We might be forced to focus, time and again, on details we would prefer to ignore. When life slows down, or becomes uncomfortable, simplify and be patient. We are changing and growing in ways that we can't comprehend right now. Stay as open and observant as you can.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 16-19 degrees of Leo or Capricorn? If so, you will be more affected by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Scorpio (the Sun rules Leo; Pluto rules Scorpio)

Also on Wednesday: the Mercury station intensifies,as Mercury is preparing to come to halt this Saturday (Aug. 12th) -- beginning its 3.5-week retrograde phase (more on that later). During the station phase, until August 19th, we feel Mercury's energies more strongly. 

Pay attention to anything "in your face" in any of the following areas: communications, short travels, transportation of any kind, communication devices. You will get a chance to make adjustments once Mercury is moving direct again (to be more precise, during the shadow phase that follows). 

For the next 10 days, we might experience delays or misunderstandings; things could feel "off" or stagnant. It might be a good idea to give yourself some extra time when getting ready to go somewhere -- and that goes for the journey itself, too -- especially if you intend to drive or use public transportation. Going with the flow is definitely recommended at this time.  

Be extra-patient if you intend to buy, sell or ship big-ticket items, especially if they are transportation or communication devices like anything connected with planes, trains, cars, phones, computers, iPads, etc. Best of all (if possible): wait until after Sept.19th, when the shadow phase is over.

Some of us will feel the effects of the Mercury station more than others: those of us who have Gemini or Virgo as our Sun- or Rising-Sign (Ascendant); and those of us with personal planets in 9-11 degrees of Virgo, Pisces, Gemini or Sagittarius.

Thursday (August 10th): the Moon remains in creative, sensitive Pisces all day (see Tuesday early evening for details).

Thursday early morning, an opportune Mercury/Venus aspect becomes exact at 5:03am EDT. We started to feel this aspect from Monday evening on; it will remain strong until Saturday. This aspect gives us the opportunity for more direct and caring connections to others. 

Through enhanced communication, we have a chance to clear up any misunderstandings or discomfort from the past. Promises and clarifications may grow from this, particularly in love relationships. It is also an opportune time to make new social contacts. Remember: this is an "opportunity" -- those aren't necessarily handed to us, we have to actively take advantage of them. 

Do you have your Ascendant, Career point (or any personal planets) in 9-13 degrees of Virgo, Cancer, Taurus or Scorpio? If so, you may be more aware of this opportunity. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Virgo, Gemini, Libra or Taurus (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo; Venus is the ruler of Taurus and Libra)

Thursday late morning, a somewhat challenging Mars/Neptune aspect becomes exact at 9:31am EDT. We started to feel this aspect from Tuesday evening on; it will remain strong until Saturday. Our idealism and high expectations could lead us into frustrating circumstances that leave us emotionally and physically drained. 

Our vitality and emotional resilience increase as we learn how (and where) to get involved in projects we feel passionate about. 

That said, we may also have difficulty establishing realistic limits with others and around our own self-expectations; this, combined with a tendency to laziness (especially where exercising good judgment is concerned) could leave us feeling "rudderless" or even overwhelmed. As best as you can therefore, allow for downtime, rest and spiritual connection.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 12-14 degrees of Leo or Pisces? If so, you will be more affected by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Aries or Pisces (Mars is the ruler of Aries; Neptune rules Pisces)

Thursday at 9:38am EDT, we enter a  Moon void of course (VoC). that lasts for almost 16 hours until Friday at 1:22am EDT. We are pulled in two quite different directions: 

On the one hand, we experience a desire for inner silence, emotional oneness, and the flow of creativity through us. On the other hand, we want to explore our belief structures and how they relate to the outside world. 

We may therefore feel anxious or restless; as best as you can, slow down, acknowledge what is, know that all is well in each "now moment".

Use this intuitive time to make adjustments and find creative solutions when it comes to these energies. As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don't start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Thursday all day and evening ahead of time ;-)

Thursday early evening, an opportune Sun/Jupiter aspect becomes exact at 5:24pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect from Tuesday evening on; it will remain strong until Sunday. 

We might want to take advantage of the opportunities this aspect provides -- it's an excellent time for creating win-win situations, resolving conflicts with others, having fun and boosting our self-confidence. In fact, we may well feel particularly vital and confident -- and inner optimism can bring rewards. 

Humor can be a big part of this aspect too: We are able to laugh whole-heartedly, and see nothing but possibility in our lives, especially in our relationships. This could bring a healthy shift of attitude toward our one-on-one relationships -- whether personal or business.

Imagine you have a special lens which showed you the "bigger picture"... What would your relationships look like when you gazed through it?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 16-20 degrees of Leo, Libra, Sagittarius or Gemini? If so, you will be more aware of this opportunity. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Sagittarius (the Sun rules Leo; Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius). 

Friday (August 11th) at 1:22am EDT, the Moon moves into pioneering, fast-paced Aries, where it will journey until Sunday morning. Life is an adventure, we're more open to new ideas, and have great enthusiasm for new projects. Patience is certainly not our strong suit at this time, but we can decide quickly, and act immediately. 

Our independence and dynamism are important to us right now, so we may find it hard to be disciplined or accept advice at this time; in general, our responses to others tend to be more assertive or even aggressive. If you find your foot tapping, try hitting the gym, or finding other ways to burn off the body's excess energy. 

Friday night/Saturday very early morning, a harmonious Venus/Neptune aspect becomes exact at 1:17am EDT. We started to feel this aspect from Wednesday evening on; it will remain strong until next week Tuesday (Aug. 15th). This supports us with the flow of feelings, especially in connection to our relationships and whatever we most value. Allowing and accepting our feeling-body will feel easier, and that extends to others as well. 

Our intuition and instincts are strongly supported here too. It becomes easier to trust and go with the flow -- we give ourselves permission to receive love and emotional support from humans, life itself, and the universe as a whole. As best as you can... let all flow.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 10-16 degrees of Cancer, Pisces or Scorpio? If so, you will be most blessed by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus, Libra or Pisces (Venus is the ruler of Taurus and Libra; Neptune rules Pisces).

Saturday (August 12th): the Moon remains in pioneering, fast-paced Aries all day (see Friday very early morning for details). 

Saturday evening at 9:00pm EDT: Mercury comes to a still stand in 11.5 degrees of Virgo (starting its 3-week retrograde phase), slowing things down tremendously from Friday until Monday. Give yourself extra time to go to work this morning or to get things done. If you are traveling today, just simply go with the flow… you'll get there... eventually ;-) The same is true when it comes to all our technological devices…
 
This retrograde phase will last until Sept. 5th. People worry about Mercury retrogrades, but it’s important not to stop one's life during these times. As mentioned above, certain things may take longer -- but a retrograde gives us a chance to resolve things that have been keeping us from living our lives in a more wholesome way -- especially things that came up within the past three weeks. 

Take time to investigate your own thought processes... ask yourself: What's not working smoothly in my life? What if I got really clear about that?
 
For the next three weeks, we get a chance to explore our inner narrative -- to connect from within to what we say to ourselves on a daily basis. It's also an opening for readdressing communications with others, learning experiences, or conditioning from the past. 

This is an internal process -- a chance to honor and re-organize our thoughts, working from the inside to the outside. It's time to rethink, retool and release what no longer works.

We also get a chance to explore our daily routines and our health (including eating and exercise habits), connecting from within to what needs order and revision; we may even get to reorganize our life and improve it in a real and practical way, if we do the inner work of discerning what work for us and what doesn't. 
 
As always: with Mercury retrograde, always read the small print -- and re-read a contract before signing (if you have to sign something) -- or ask another person for a second opinion... Basically, during these periods, it's best to be aware of any details that we might have overlooked... and check in with our intuition... and stay open to the possibility of renegotiation or adjustments, down the line! 

In general, Mercury Retrograde is a great time for reevaluating and reorganizing. This is especially true for our thought patterns and decisions (particularly those made in the 3 weeks prior to the start of the retrograde) -- but it's true of our lives in general: we can reach a clearer understanding as to what works, and what doesn’t, and what needs to change. 

Reconnecting with old friends, clients and family members (especially siblings) is also favored at this time …
  
Mercury also represents our day-to-day mind; this too is experienced more internally at this time. When it comes to communication, make sure that what you say, write and hear is the same as the intended meaning -- and use the spell-checker ;-) 
 
Another thing to take into consideration: how does each Mercury retrograde phase affect your personal birth chart. Do you have any personal planets that Mercury will align with during its retrograde journey? The houses of your chart each represent different areas of your life -- which of the houses in your chart is affected by this retrograde? And in fact...

Mercury's retrograde phase is a big part of the upcoming Solar Eclipse in Leo, as it will trigger the Eclipse point several times.

As with any retrograde, some of us will be more affected than others, depending on how it interacts with our personal chart. That will be true if any of the following apply to you: Gemini or Virgo as your Sun- or Rising-Sign (Ascendant) -- or your Ascendant, Career Point (or any personal planets) in 0-12 degrees of Virgo, Pisces, Gemini, Sagittarius, or 27-29 degrees of Leo, Aquarius, Taurus or Scorpio.

Sunday (August 13th): the Moon remains in pioneering, fast-paced Aries until 6:40am EDT (see Friday very early morning for details). 

Sunday at 4:01am EDT, we enter a Moon void of course (VoC). that lasts a little over 2.5 hours, until 6:40am EDT. If you are awake during this intuitive time, use it to make connections to people that can enthusiastically support your projects (and sentiments). 

As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don't start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Sunday early morning ahead of time ;-)

Sunday at 6:40am EDT, the Moon moves into steady, peaceful Taurus, where it will be until Tuesday late morning. We love all physical comforts, prefer consistency, and would rather stick with what we know works well. In other words: change is not our favorite thing and "rushing things" goes against our grain. 

What is our favorite thing for the next two days? It's probably, slowing down and getting in touch with whatever delights our senses ;-)This Moon placement also starts the build-up towards the last Quarter Moon (exact on Monday evening).

Sunday early evening, a harmonious Sun/Saturn aspect becomes exact at 5:06pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect from Thursday evening on; it will remain strong until Thursday (August 17th). Commitment and discipline are the keys to understanding our heart's desire right now. We face life on life's terms and feel up to doing so (especially when it comes to our creative self-expression). 

Ask yourself: What could I achieve if I brought 5% more joy to my long-term plans? 

Paradoxically, we can also bring a more mature approach to exploring our "inner child" energy. How might a supportive "inner parent" help your "inner child" feel safe to play?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 18-24 degrees of Leo, Sagittarius or Aries? Or your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Capricorn (the Sun rules Leo; Saturn rules Capricorn)? If either of those is true, you can expect to be more blessed by this aspect :-)

A head's up for next Monday (August 14th): the Moon remains in steady, peaceful Taurus all day (see Sunday morning for details). At 9:15pm EDT, the last Quarter Moon in 22.5 degrees of Taurus becomes exact. We started to feel this from the moment the Moon entered Taurus on Sunday morning. Also at 9:15pm EDT, we enter a Moon void of course (VoC). that lasts for almost 13 hours, until next week Tuesday at 10:06am EDT
