Aug 7 – 13
The Lunar eclipse in Aquarius
What to expect: Clearing something
What to watch out for: Arrogance and ego
What will it affect? Large groups, social change
What happens at a Lunar Eclipse is that the earth gets in between the sun and the moon and the lamination of the sun’s light on the moon disappears. This Lunar Eclipse will occur at 15 degrees Aquarius and it a time is a time to evolve the leadership in service of the people. The Sun is in Leo (Royalty) and regardless of whether you are a King, President, Prime Minister, CEO, Boss or Owner, the Leader’s and now has a moment to caucus and reflect on what they are doing for the people. At the same time, the Moon in Aquarius (Revolution) has the masses searching their hearts for what they feel. Abraham Lincoln once said that “government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish”. The Aquarius moon will decide if something needs to change or perish. On the world stage, this will happen in our governments and in our personal lives this dialogue will likely happen in our businesses and workplaces.
At the same time, the goddesses are also going to be in deep conversation about this leadership issue. Venus in Cancer is at the centre of the conversation. She has a deep value around her family and clan. She is like the Clan Mother.
The Iroquois clan mother is responsible for the welfare of the clan. She names all the people of the clan and holds a position in nominating, installing and removing the male chief, the Hoyaneh (“Caretaker of the Peace”). They are considered the life givers. – Wikipedia
She is looking at the big picture and is also getting into the fine detail. She is taking a look at all contracts; signed, written, spoken and unspoken and is looking at what she wants and needs. She is will to negotiate to get what she wants, but with a sextile to Pallas in Taurus and a conjunction to Ceres in Cancer, there are some important things that cannot be compromised; the environment and the children.
Why? Full Moon at 15°Aq25′, Mercury Trine Pallas, Venus Sextile Vesta, Venus Sextile Pallas, Mercury Sextile Venus, Vesta Trine Pallas
Clarifying our Purpose
What to expect: Clarity of purpose
What to watch out for: Unfair fights
What will it affect? Work, causes, communication, spirituality
On August 10th – 11th there is a sense of optimism and excitement about something that we have recently learned. Something snaps together in our understanding As Mercury and Vesta come together in Virgo we have a clear understanding of the work that we need to do and the work that we need to be in service to. A deeply loving, connected and nurturing energy that takes on a transcendental quality is also being felt as Venus and Ceres come together and reach out to hold hands with Neptune. We are getting clear on our mission, our spiritual purpose and what our cause is. We may have known, but now we are certain and centered in it. We now have the ability to work out of love and to share our gifts in service.

What to expect: Review
What to watch out for: Communication (phone, text, computer, email) mess ups
What will it affect? Communication, work
Mercury will retrograde on the 12th and as it does it will first make another trine to Pallas. It made one earlier in the week when we may have gotten clear on our mission. Now it’s time for review. On Aug 13th put together a review plan. As the Sun makes a trine to Saturn we have the ability to concentrate, organize and plan. We’ll be spending the next three and a half week; until September 5th reviewing as mercury makes it retrograde journey. In Virgo is will have us focused on de-cluttering our lives. Spend time de-cluttering your home and work space and also whatever had been getting in the way of your health and well-being
Why? Mercury Stationary, Mercury Trine Transiting Pallas, Sun Trine Transiting Saturn
