What’s happening this week?
Let me start by flagging up that the second half of August is packed with activity, so make the most of this week which is relatively calm by comparison. If you’re on holiday you’ve picked the right week, and if you’re working then get ahead as much as possible. Personally I am battling on through daily heat of 35 degrees, as is the rest of Greece, so this morning’s blog is going to be brief and to the point.
Again, Mercury is the key player. He is now separating (moving away from) a square to Saturn that was exact yesterday evening, so today is the day to sort out hassles, misunderstandings or mistakes that arose over the weekend. His next aspect is a minor one to Jupiter on Wednesday morning (helpful) and then a trine (harmonious) to Uranus in the early hours of Thursday. If you want to make plans, put new agreements in place in your personal or working life then now’s the time to get cracking.
The other main feature is that the love, money and pleasure planet Venus is finishing her journey through careful Virgo. From a traditional astrological viewpoint this is good news as this is Venus’ sign of “fall”, the sign in which Venusian qualities struggle to express themselves. She moves into Libra, her sign of “dignity”, at 16.38 BST on Friday.
The Scales of Libra represent balance and the famous indecision, weighing things up, but they also symbolize partnership – how one side can’t exist without the other. Libra’s natural house is the 7th, where we find our other halves and significant others in terms of one to one important connections. Have you noticed how the Librans in your life are either in a long term relationship or rarely have long gaps between relationships? Librans are naturals at inviting in “the other”, at seeking opinions and enjoying the pleasures of being a couple. While Venus travels through Libra we can all learn a lot about the beauty and grace of this sign, and how we get results when we hone our cooperative and collaborative skills.
