MONDAY, August 28

Mercury in Leo and Mars in Virgo

Uranus Retrograde in Taurus

Uranus retrograde in Taurus brings an unstable, erratic energy that disrupts the fixed earth sign's desire for stability and routine.

As Uranus moves backwards through Taurus, innovations to our values, finances, and possessions meet roadblocks and reversals.

What we thought was rock-solid may suddenly shift, forcing adaptation. Sudden events or breakthroughs regarding security and resources can catch us off guard under this erratic influence.

During this retrograde period, changes impacting comfort zones and established habits may feel destabilizing but are meant to shake us out of stubborn rigidity.

The unpredictable Uranian energy compels us to detach from fixed attitudes, habits or possessions that constrain our growth.

Though initially unsettling, these disruptions allow breakthroughs not possible when clinging to the status quo.

Whatever shifts are happening in your life that are creating instability, recognize that it is the universe shaking you out of your funk, your stagnation.

Make a move, before you fall into a cavern.

To best navigate Uranus retrograde in Taurus, remain open and detached rather than resistant.

Find flexibility amidst the instability.

This enables new discoveries and opportunities for positive change to emerge in the long run, bringing greater future stability and independence.

TUESDAY, August 29

The Moon in Aries Square Pluto in Capricorn

The Moon in Libra Opposite Venus Retrograde in Leo

The opposition between the Moon in Aquarius and Venus retrograde in Leo creates tension between our needs for social connection versus passionate self-expression.

When the Moon is in cerebral Aquarius, we crave mental stimulation, nonconformity and group affiliation. However, socially oriented interests clash with Venus' backwards dance through expressive Leo which compels heart-centered attention and romantic overtures. We feel an emotional pull between detached intellectualism versus demonstrative affection.

Under this opposition, our usual patterns of relating may seem at odds or unsatisfying.

Following utilitarian logic alone fails to meet the soul's need for creativity and affection.

Yet pursuing individualistic pleasures and romance without regard for peers or community will leave us feeling disconnected and unsettled.

The integration of these opposing energies is key.

We can allow innovation and group affiliation to inspire self-expression that uniquely reflects who we are.

Likewise, boldly radiating our talents and passions can inspire others when aligned with humanitarian ideals. By blending the Leo heart and Aquarius mind, we find fulfillment in standing out while also joining hands across diverse perspectives.

When: 12 - 6am PDT

This period could be challenging for those born with key astrological points or planets in Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio and Capricorn.

WEDNESDAY, August 30

The Sun in Cancer Square Chiron in Aries

The Full Moon in Pisces

The New Moon in Leo back on August 16 was about setting your intentions to open your heart, have fun, laugh, enjoy life, create, and be playful.

The Full Moon is in Pisces, the Mutable Water Sign symbolized by the Fish, and ruled by Jupiter, the god of thunder, lord of justice, the planet of luck and expansion, and Neptune, the god of freshwater and the sea, the planet of illusion, deception, fantasy, compassion, and dreams.

The Four Cornerstones of Pisces are...

1. Intuition

2. Compassion

3. Empathy

4. Faith

During this period, release any guilt, shame, regret, or blame that is preventing you from fully opening your heart and enjoying life. Show yourself compassion through this process, so you can integrate these thought patterns with understanding forgiveness and love which comes from the heart.

When your heart is open your intuition is strong, your compassion is deep, your empathy is broad, and your faith is limitless.

THURSDAY, August 31

The Moon in Gemini Sextile Mercury in Leo

The Moon in Pisces Sextile Uranus Retrograde in Taurus

The sextile between the Moon in Pisces and Uranus retrograde in Taurus brings an opportunity to break free of emotional ruts by being open to new insights and experiences.

When the intuitive Moon merges with unconventional Uranus, we crave stimulation beyond ordinary routines. However, Uranus' backwards motion through grounded Taurus reminds us the most meaningful revelations are lasting and stabilize our inner life.

Under this aspect, we should allow imaginative visions to spark positive change, but filter them through practicality.

On the shadow side, restlessness could lead us to make impulsive decisions only to reverse course later during the retrograde. It’s better to run innovative ideas through tests before overhauling everything.

An unexpected nurturing experience may help us overcome old fears and blocks. We can make room for unique connections and creativity without totally abandoning traditions that still serve us well.

With courage and discernment, this transit liberates the emotional realm but also grounds it in self-worth and security. When intuitions align with real needs, inspired change can flourish.

When: 4pm – 10pm PDT

This period could be challenging for those born with key astrological points or planets in Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius and Aquarius.

FRIDAY, September 1

The Sun in Cancer Sextile Uranus in Taurus

The Moon in Aries Opposite Mars in Libra

The opposition between the Moon in Aries and Mars in Libra creates an inner tension between our instinctive emotional needs and our desires for harmony in relationships.

When the Moon is home in fiery Aries, we crave independence, spontaneity, and direct self-expression. However, Mars in diplomatic Libra pushes us to accommodate others' perspectives and keep the peace socially.

Under this opposition, our usual ways of asserting ourselves or bonding clash. Pushing ahead with raw individualism causes friction and hurt feelings we later regret. Yet acquiescing to please everyone leaves us feeling angry and powerless.

Finding balance is key.

We can learn to initiate plans or express anger constructively without steamrolling over people. And cooperating or compromising with others need not preclude confidently speaking our truth.

By integrating the strengths of both moon signs and mars signs, we become able to assert our needs in a tactful yet authentic way.

We can have lively debates without aggression by respecting differences.

This opposition teaches that honoring relationships and our independent spirit can co-exist beautifully through self-awareness and emotional maturity. With insight into inner motivations, productive alchemy occurs.

When: 8am – 2pm PDT

This period could be challenging for those born with key astrological points or planets in Aries, Gemini, Libra and Sagittarius.

SATURDAY, September 2

The Moon in Cancer Sextile Mars in Virgo

The Moon in Aries Trine Venus Retrograde in Leo

The flowing trine between the Moon in Aries and Venus retrograde in Leo brings an opportunity for confident self-expression that is both affectionate and authentic.

When the impulsive Aries Moon combines with retrograde Venus in theatrical Leo, our emotions crave creativity and passion. Under this sky, we attract more bees with honey - being bold yet kind earns affection.

However, we must beware of becoming overly self-focused.

The spirit of this transit is heart-centered confidence that inspires people without ego. It reminds us to courageously express care for others through little acts of kindness.

In relationships, we should balance initiative with reassurance, avoid impulsiveness, and make special plans together. Artistic efforts infused with vigor and heart thrive now.

Overall, this fiery trine helps us direct spontaneity and charm toward uplifting goals that resonate with the soul’s purpose.

When: 12am – 6am PDT

This period could be challenging for those born with key astrological points or planets in Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio and Capricorn.

SUNDAY, September 3

The Moon in Cancer Sextile Uranus in Taurus

Venus Direct in Leo

Venus transiting direct in Leo after a retrograde period helps reignite passion and creativity in our relationships and self-expression.

During its backward dance through theatrical Leo, Venus compelled a review of how authentically and openly we were expressing affection, following our joy, and shining from the heart.

Drama, miscommunications or tensions around pleasure seeking may have surfaced.

Now as Venus moves forward again, we integrate the retrograde lessons about wholehearted and balanced connections.

With Leo's warm exuberance untangled from retrograde confusion, relating becomes more fun and spirited again. This supports romantic demonstrations, creative risks, and expressing pride in oneself and loved ones. Generosity comes more naturally but we must avoid extravagance.

It’s a time for courageously yet compassionately sharing who we are, welcoming others’ unique gifts too.

As Venus dances forward in Leo, we live, love and create from the center of the heart with renewed confidence.

The light we radiate now attracts positive new relationships and opportunities.

All areas of life are graced with charm when sincerity guides us.

As Venus begins moving forward after its retrograde in Leo, we enter the final retrograde shadow zone before Venus clears the degree range it traversed backwards.

During this shadow, we integrate lessons but may still feel somewhat in flux around creative expression, romance, and relationships.

Venus themes may lack total clarity and closure as some reflections are still processing.

It's important not to rush into big decisions about relationships or luxury purchases just yet. Allow time for insights to fully form.

This period is well spent developing self-confidence grounded in real self-worth, not ego. Practice steadiness in all that lights you up. finish lingering retrograde conversations to clear air. Strengthen connections through consistency, not grand gestures.

Once Venus crosses the early Leo degree where it first stationed retrograde, we emerge fully from the retroshade. Then fiery Leo creativity and social bonds ignite with stability, maturity and heart.

Patience now ensures relationships and endeavors started will glow.
