Monday August 6 thru Sunday August 12

Astrological Highlights for the week: Venus enters Libra on Monday; Uranus stations retrograde on Tuesday; New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo on Saturday and retrograding Mars re-enters Capricorn on Sunday

As Ed Sullivan used to say in opening his variety television program, “We have a big, really big show.” This week’s headliner is the New Moon Solar Eclipse at 18 Leo on Saturday. This is the third eclipse in a row and the second Solar Eclipse. However, the big event has some pretty interesting warm up acts that you won’t want to miss.

Venus enters her home sign of Libra on Monday. Relationships and creativity flourish; but it’s also time to take out the garbage, so to speak. If you really want your relationships to sparkle, don’t let them be tainted by old regrets, relationship baggage from the past, or even idealistic expectations that are dreamy but create havoc when real humans get together.

And speaking of moving beyond old habits and expectations, Uranus the revolutionary moves into a five-month retrograde on Tuesday. This brings the total number of planets metaphorically moving backwards to six! Despite our attempts to move forward, we are being continually told to look within and consolidate new foundations before expecting those manifestations to rise like skyscrapers. Part of this process is to blast through old baggage and regrets. Uranus can help us do that.

This is an important retrograde pattern. It will take Uranus back into the last degrees of fiery Aries. Did we forget something? Yes indeed. This fire will illuminate desires and inspire new dreams that can be manifested when Uranus returns to stable and earthy Taurus in 2019. Especially pay attention if you resonate to Aquarius energy (Uranus is the ruler) and/or if you have planets or house cusps at 27 – 29 degrees of any sign. (Especially Aries, Cancer, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, and Capricorn) Uranus is opening you up and helping you break free of perceived restrictions and limitations.

Now back to that eclipse. Eclipses always carry the energy of imminent change and this one is no exception. This one finds the Sun and Moon forming inconjunct aspects to Pluto in Capricorn and Neptune in Pisces and points to change of transformational proportions. Inconjuncts or quincunx aspects are challenging energies that stretch us. I often refer to inconjuncts as “rock in your shoe” energies. You know the drill. You shake your foot trying to dislodge the discomfort but it takes concerted effort to get that little pebble to move. Most of the time it seems to just change position!

Like shaking our foot to dislodge the uncomfortable rock, this energy requires an adjustment that goes much deeper than superficial shifts or modifications. In fact in the dramatic sign of Leo, known for authenticity and self-expression this may be nothing short of an identity crisis. Now I know this concept is usually considered negative, but is it really?

Isn’t this what we go through many times in our lives? Moving through important transitions – the birth of a sibling, first love affair, first breakup with a lover or a friend, going off to college, marriage, divorce, having children, getting a job, opening to spiritual truths and disciplines, experiencing the many highs and lows of blessings and losses. In many ways, we do change our identity and self-image as an adjustment to circumstances in our lives. When we are wise and lucky, we consciously initiate changes instead of waiting for those cosmic nudges and pushes.

We might feel confused by changing desires and tastes but instead of assuming it’s a negative thing, can we embrace this discomfort as growing pains? As with all eclipses, pay attention to signs, symbols, and messages. Something out of the ordinary may capture your interest, but it could also be something simple that turns out to be an important leverage for manifesting your dreams at a higher level as we move through the summer of retrogrades and into the autumn season.

This is a wild and wonderfully exhilarating cosmic ride. With many wheels spinning, many of us don’t really know where we will land. However, when we have faith in ourselves, in each other, and in the process, we can be assured, our new identities will be something we love.

Until next week, let go and wear loose clothes.

MONDAY
AUGUST 6
MOON in GEMINI
Venus enters Libra

Today’s Moon in curious Gemini is social and gregarious. Might be a good day to celebrate a professional win with a lunch out with co-workers or head home early for some family time. Today is a study in flexibility and tests our ability to create win-win situations. In late afternoon, the Sun in willful Leo makes a perfect square with expansive Jupiter in mysterious and introverted Scorpio. This could create an internal conflict when we realize the attainment of a goal or acquiring something we wished for just doesn’t hit the mark.

This is a fairly common human trait! We ceaselessly look for that special something or someone to complete us. Sidebar: we are whole; we just tend to forget! But that being said, life on planet earth does come with some limitations and restrictions and when we bump up against them, we fight like hell or sometimes we just lower our expectations and surrender. Is there no middle ground?

Also in late afternoon, in fact at the same time the Sun is fighting with Jupiter, Venus takes on the role of diplomat and facilitator. She gracefully glides into one of her home signs – creative, gracious and good natured Libra. This may not solve all and any scrapes we get into today, but it certainly will help as Venus in Libra puts a premium on relationships and getting along. Polite, well-mannered, and interested in beauty, balance and diplomacy, Venus in Libra is a role model for relationships. Well, some people’s role model anyway! Traditionally, Libra represents “we” and “us”. Finding the most comfortable way to combine our lives with others is part of her mission. Grace Kelly, actress and later the Princess of Monaco, born with Venus in Libra is reported to have said, “Getting angry doesn’t solve anything. I don’t like yelling and fighting and I can’t quarrel.” Not sure if she was able to fully demonstrate this sentiment, but it certainly reflects Venus in harmony-loving Libra.

Daily Muse: We all do better when we work together. Our differences do matter, but our common humanity matters more. (Bill Clinton – Venus in Libra)

TUESDAY
AUGUST 7
MOON in GEMINI/CANCER
Moon Void of Course 12:55am enters Cancer 9:01pm
Uranus Moves Retrograde

The usually chatty Gemini Moon is a touch more introverted today as the Moon continues to lose light as it slowly moves towards its destined meeting with the Sun on Saturday morning. Uranus the planet of revolutions and rebellion begins a five-month retrograde pattern which encourages us to look within for the cause of conflict and uneasiness. It’s so much easier to blame something external!

With Uranus moving retrograde this brings the total number of planets metaphorically moving backwards to six. Despite our attempts to move forward, we are being continually told to look within and consolidate new foundations before expecting those manifestations to rise like skyscrapers. Part of this process is to blast through old baggage and regrets.

In at least one place in your life you need a clean slate! As one of the slow moving planets, with an 84 year orbit around the sun and taking an average of 7 years to move through an individual astrological sign, this is an important retrograde pattern. It will take Uranus back into the last degrees of fiery Aries. Did we forget something? Yes indeed. This fire will illuminate desires and inspire new dreams that can be manifested when Uranus returns to stable and earthy Taurus in 2019. Especially pay attention if you resonate to Aquarius energy (Uranus is the ruler) and/or if you have planets or house cusps at 27 – 29 degrees of any sign (especially Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn). Uranus is opening you up and helping you break free of perceived restrictions and limitations.

A sweet and dynamic connection between cosmic soul mates Venus and Mars bodes well for evening trysts and an opportunity to get on the same page with a lover or partner.

Daily Muse: Although the universe is unlimited, every individual path has some limitations. Accepting that not all avenues are available to you at this time is a powerful realization. (Colette Baron-Reid)

Today on Simpletales we’ll continue to look forward, even with six planets Retrograde! Please join me and guest Anita Ahuja on 12Radio.com at 10 am Pacific – 1 Eastern.


WEDNESDAY
AUGUST 8
MOON in CANCER

The Moon in sensitive Cancer is looking both backwards and forwards today trying to find meaning in what looks to be chaos. In the final few days of the lunar cycle we are often introspective and sometimes quiet and even withdrawn. Multiple planetary connections add to the chorus of energy including a confusing inconjunct between the Sun and Neptune, an opposition between Venus and Chiron, and the Sun’s meeting with retrograding Mercury.

In the midst of lots of noise, instead of talking louder we might try getting quiet. Pulling away for a few hours or even a few minutes can help us sort through the details and our feelings. As we look at the past, the focus should be in remembering the stories worth telling and forgiving the others.

Cancer is the sign of home and family so don’t be surprised if this is where your heart is today. But this can also be a time for deep inner reflection. This is where private time becomes valuable as we are able to better assess our purpose and function within a family, partnership, or group with greater clarity. If solitude is calling you, don’t be guilted into participating in a social situation. Listen to your own intuition and heart.

Daily Muse: Being President is like being the groundskeeper in a cemetery: there are a lot of people under you, but none of them are listening. (Bill Clinton)

THURSDAY
AUGUST 9
MOON in CANCER/LEO

Moon Void of Course 4:20am enters LEO 9:18pm

The water seems kind of muddy today and the path a bit unclear; but then again looks can be deceiving! We are in the midst of some dynamic cosmic energy with so many planets retrograde (six!) and navigating the choppy waters of three eclipses – two behind us and one straight ahead. It’s enough to make your head spin!

Today even our hearts may feel confused as Venus has uncomfortable run-ins with both Uranus the rebel and Saturn the organizer. We might feel like we are caught in a dilemma from which there is no acceptable way out or solution. It’s temporary folks! But it is an indication that we may not have all the information we need or the resources to make an important life changing decision. It’s coming, but not quite yet. As we come to the New Moon Eclipse on Saturday and resolve the Mars and Mercury retrogrades, indeed, the information we need appears and the path is revealed. Learning to deal with indecision and ambiguity is an art. Thankfully Venus in Libra is our help and guide even if she herself feels a bit perplexed today.

Relationships may feel a bit rocky, but if possible avoid making any sweeping declarations or demands. The circumstances are quickly changing. This is probably not the time to pick up your marbles and go home. But then again, trust yourself and your intuition. Life is a curriculum and there is something to be learned at every crossroads and through every choice.

Daily Muse: Reserving judgments is a matter of infinite hope. (F. Scott Fitzgerald Venus in Libra)

 

FRIDAY
AUGUST 10
MOON in LEO


Last night the Moon quietly slipped into Leo. Ordinarily this isn’t such a calm or subdued event for the sign of self-expression, and drama. However, as you follow the Moon cycles you may begin to notice when we get to the end of the lunar cycle (New Moon tomorrow) no matter what the sign of the Moon, the mood is more philosophical, introspective and even wise.

We may struggle a bit today about our beliefs and definitions of concepts like “truth” and “integrity”. This evening the Moon will square Jupiter in penetrating Scorpio and just a few minutes later will meet up with Mercury. Are we as good as our word? Are we trustworthy? Do the ends justify the means? Despite our protestations that we are truth seekers and truth tellers, is that really so? Think about how you answer difficult questions you don’t want to answer or inquiries from children. Have you ever stretched the truth or told a little white lie?

I have a feeling there are some cathartic moments on tap for this evening! When retrograding Mercury in Leo squares Jupiter late night, there could be a breakthrough. It might feel like something is broken and so be it. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. It’s an opening we can use for greater understanding of ourselves and others. If you find yourself in a dicey or uncomfortable conversation opt for saying nothing instead of going for a cover up. Secrets may be revealed and lies illuminated. We can’t get away with much tonight, so don’t try.

Daily Muse: You don't write because you want to say something, you write because you have something to say. (F. Scott Fitzgerald)

SATURDAY
AUGUST 11
MOON in LEO/VIRGO
Solar Eclipse 19ºLeo at 2:58am
Moon goes Void of Course at 2:58am - enters VIRGO 8:59pm

Today’s headliner is the New Moon Solar Eclipse at 18 Leo. Eclipses always carry the energy of imminent change and this one is no exception. This one finds the Sun and Moon forming inconjunct aspects to Pluto in Capricorn and Neptune in Pisces and points to change of transformational proportions. Inconjuncts or quincunx aspects are challenging energies that stretch us. I often refer to inconjuncts as “rock in your shoe” energies. You know the drill. You shake your foot trying to dislodge the discomfort but it takes concerted effort to get that little pebble to move. Most of the time it seems to just change position!

Daily Muse: To be what you want to be, you must give up being what you are. (Yusuf Islam aka Cat Stevens)

 

SUNDAY
AUGUST 12
MOON in VIRGO
Mars enters Capricorn

Mars has been somewhat quiet this week, methodically moving backwards in its retrograde cycle. Today he creates a ripple in the cosmic pond when he returns to earthy and pragmatic Capricorn. Once again we are reminded of the importance of getting our facts straight and our ducks in a row. This foundation building sign helps us fill in any missing pieces and build stronger platforms from which to launch this fall and winter.

The Moon in fellow earth sign Virgo quietly takes care of business. Virgo’s penchant for solitude and being left alone to do her work might get interrupted today. New information or messages arrive that may or may not be worth acting on. Don’t take things at face value. Follow-up and do your homework.

Daily Muse: Success does not consist in never making mistakes but in never making the same one a second time. (George Bernard Shaw)

2 days ago, I noticed that leaves on our Maple tree were turning red along the veins. Yesterday, one of the leaves had turned a brilliant red overnight, with others beginning to change. By the end of the day, several leaves in the same area had turned, with one red leaf lying on the ground. It’s beginning.

Do leaves begin turning in the summer? They do so in our civil calendars, but those schedules aren’t related to Nature, as much as to convenience. In the old calendars, summer is over and autumn has begun. It happens every year around the first week in August, and has for thousands of years. Watch and see what’s happening around you.

Although plant life is still green and abundant and the Green Man is still strong, a change is beginning. It won’t be long until the signs of the next season are obvious, with the days getting shorter and the nights cooler. As I write this, it's 96° outside, and it probably seems ludicrous to proclaim that fall has begun, but that's just the way it is.

Grasses everywhere are ripening, some of them showy, with great, plumed, purple stalks waving in the wind. Others are quietly releasing their seeds in an attempt to spread themselves as far and wide as they possibly can.

Harvests have already begun. Here in Colorado, we have a bumper crop of peaches and our local corn is at the stores already. In the old days, this would've been a sign of a benevolent energy, rewarding the good people for their hard work. I choose to think that way still, even though just about everything has changed when it comes to agrarian life. The one thing that hasn't changed has been the sweat, toil and labor of those who bring our food to the table. Once upon a time, this work was a joyous, loving chore. I never take any of it for granted.

I look at this time of year as an opportunity to tidy up those things that may have gone undone to this point. In that old calendar, ruled so accurately by the dynamics of nature, we have 90 days until the beginning of winter. Samhain will bring a quieter time, one that always thrills me, as it is a season of immense power and spiritual strength. It's also a great time to sit with a hot cup of tea and knit by the fireplace.

We aren't there yet. We've just begun an active time for humans. For millennia we've been racing against the clock in order to get as much done as possible, before the weather turns to cold, to sustain our food sources. Our natural, inner, biological calendars are taking note. Of course, have fun and enjoy this glorious time of the year, as every day is a gift in one form or another, but don't neglect the excitement of watching one of the most glorious displays of color and aroma that this earth has to offer. Take it all in.

The show is beginning, and we are a part of it, whether we know it or not.

Until next week, I wish you all peace and love.

Your Power Center

Your solar plexus chakra is at the base of your sternum. It is usually yellow and is the center of personal power, will and self esteem in your life. It is your powerhouse, and governs how you extend your will into the world. When it is balanced you are confident and strong and you stand up for what you want. When it is out of balance you can feel weak, allow yourself to be controlled by others and lose sight of what you really want. You can also become defensive and angry, using your will to control those around you.

Balancing power is a lifelong challenge we all face. Finding happiness means balancing power, putting yourself in the driver's seat of your life. Give up too much power and lose your identity, wield too much power and take someone else’s. Solar Plexus balance is a challenge that takes a toolkit to maintain.

Join me for Kindred Spirits on Friday, 8/10 at 10 am PST on 12radio.com for a look at Solar Plexus balance and the tools needed to keep you in charge.

I see you, I love you, you matter,
Kristi

Though some are really enjoying the Leo Season,
the aspects suggest an open window opportunity that allows for change, transformation and expediting our goals and dreams.

I saw a Meme on Instagram of a bloodied ballerina foot,
"Everyone wants success, but doesn't want to do the work to get there."

This resonated strongly with me! And is so true. Sometimes we get so caught up in our dreams, our goals, that we can almost forget why we are doing it in the first place.
Is it for the glory, the validation and the applause? (I say this as a former LA- Actress.... that was my Life! LOL)

When we create goals for the validation or approval of others, we are not in a place of humility. Humility, ultimately being,
not superior to others... and not inferior to others. And being "less than, not enough" is usually the driving force or the core issue that
turns people into hamsters spinning on a wheel as fast as they can.

GOOD NEWS! This Season, kicks us off the wheel. If you watch Game of Thrones, Khaleesi would LOVE THIS. This doesn't defeat the wheel,
it shatters it! It pulls us out of the place of delusion and shows us the truth. We are able to assess reality and see what really needs to change, and that can be scary.
To realize we do have to change our ways and do something else in order to be successful, happy and healthy.

How to Change

Mercury Retrograde, which lasts another 2 weeks, is uncomfortable for the disappointment, bad news and realizations that can be negative. On the other hand, it is a reassessment of our
methods. If things are working well, we will appreciate them more. We will be more certain that they are working in our favor. If things are not going well, we will not be Rejected by the Universe...
only Redirected! Meaning, it will be a clear sign, "This isn't working for you!"

The natural response is to freak right out in disappointment. And then shut that instinct down. Please do not; what we resist, only persists!!!
Instead, allow your natural, organic emotions to come out and be expressed. The absolute best way is to talk to a beloved friend, counselor or person whom you can trust. Allow them to validate your concerns and know that at the end of the day... this isn't your fault. You don't have to go it alone. This isn't a punishment. This is just the beginning of a new journey! You are loved!

Once we process those fears and emotions, we can seek discernment. We can seek a new way of doing things; to live in the grey, rather than the black and white.
We are never against a wall, no matter how much it feels that way.

This is a really good exercise in the old saying, "things do not have to change, I do".
Meaning, if something isn't going our way, right now is not the time to feel victimized. Instead, just this Season, we look inside ourselves:
at our motives, thoughts, beliefs and realize what we CAN control v. what we can not.

It also always helps to get a psychic perspective. A little peak into the future, or some guidance, can go a long way!!!

It's almost over... but so important to embrace this moment! I love you and I am truly so proud of your bravery, fearlessness and ability to stay open.
