At this time court cases, partnerships, travel, higher education, foreign people/places, or religion, luck and possibly money may finally arrive. Something that you may have been struggling for the past four months may now start working or work out.
This is a positive time to begin a journey, whether mental or physical and to explore new ideas and philosophies. Now is a positive time to publish, post blogs, videos, or anything online as it may become more successful. Something that you posted back in March may start to become popular now for example. Another way this may work out is something that you posted on ebay in the past few months may suddenly now be sold or get a lot of bids.
On a personal level, you may experience some sudden or shocking news or event in your life around this time. Some things that occur may not be finished or resolved until Uranus stations direct on Jan 10, 2020.
The year before that, Uranus went station retrograde was on July 21st 2014, four days after Malaysian plane MH17 was shot down over the Ukraine killing almost 300 people aboard.
Aug 11 2019 Mercury enters Leo
Mercury in Leo is loud, proud and may be fixed in opinions. At this time the news stories may be more fun or outrageous than usual. There may be some ‘pomp and circumstance’, awards, fun, contests, celebration, parties . . . surrounding Mercurial topics: news, transportation, communications, information, data, accounting, emails, cell phones, books, literature, schools, young people, learning, memory, intellect, standardized tests, stationary products, pens/pencils, measurements, statistics, arguments/debates, accountants, teachers, messengers, diplomats, journalists, bankers, inventors, speakers/speeches, booksellers, clerks, etc.
Morning Star Venus rises before the Sun each morning while Evening Star Venus sets after the Sun. Astrologer Ronnie Dreyer writes, “It was said that the Morning Star’s [Venus] appearance in the eastern sky roused the soldiers to war, while the Evening Star’s arrival on the western sky induced passionate lovemaking and followed by restful sleep. As a result, the aggressive Morning Star and the soothing Evening Star exemplified the two faces of Inanna [Venus] – 1) the wrathful Goddess of War and 2) the tranquil Love and Fertility deity.”
We have all heard the effects of the full Moon where emergency room visits escalate and people act a bit more “lunatic” than usual. Some claim that this is an old superstition but it is a scientific fact that the ocean tides rise as the ocean on the side of Earth facing the moon gets pulled toward the Moon!! This creates high tide and pulls the ocean water away from the earth!
Although there doesn’t seem to be any scientific proof of the full Moon effects on humans, the fact that the human body is made up of approximately 80% of water, it is easy to understand why the full Moon may have such an effect on people, especially those with an emphasis of water in their charts (Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces).
During this full Moon in Aquarius it is a good time to follow your goals and activities with groups. There may be some exciting developments now. People may be fixed and extreme in their opinions and this may cause some unrest but this is the time to put everything out on the table and choose solutions that benefit everyone. It is the time to put the welfare of humanity ahead of personal or egotistical satisfaction.
The last new Moon was on July 31st at 8 degree of Leo. Where these two points fall in a natal chart may show some event that began and will continues to flourish now as the Moon is full.
Give others the benefit of the doubt if they say that they didn’t get your message as they probably didn’t.
Back in the old days, before voice mail, we used to get busy signals when we tried to call a friend who was on another call. There was nothing more irritating than that “Eh Eh Eh” tone the phone company used, created by some evil genius at the phone company to make people go berserk. This can be the effect of Mercury square Uranus.
Speaking of genius, Mercury and Uranus are not all bad news together as they create brilliant thoughts, creative impulse, new and improved approaches to life. So now is the time to come up with solutions for any problems. This is the perfect time to think ‘outside the box.’
Today you may finally figure out how to fix that computer problem or other machinery that has been broken for a while, devise a new successful business plan, write some incredible science fiction, master a new subject, anything new and novel that interests you – today will be the best day for it.
If you do have to travel today, leave early and expect delays or obstacles along the way. If you are communicating to many people, follow up afterwards to be sure that they received your message and understood exactly what you meant. Try not to rush through things or mistakes and misunderstandings may cause problems.
Be inventive and unique in your thinking, communications or traveling and it may be a big hit!
Aug 18 2019 Mars enters Virgo
Mars, the planet of aggression and passion enters Virgo. Virgo rules small animals so be careful to avoid any aggressive animals if you live near wildlife. Also take care with any fur babies as our four legged family members may get more assertive and active than usual and could hurt themselves or destroy something. If you have any pets, give them some activity to work off their energy. New toys and playing catch will help, even giving them a job to do may go well.
For humans, Virgo is the detail work of our lives, the day-to-day. Now is a good time to embark on any cleaning projects, reorganizing, and getting any work done. Health matters may come up and need to be dealt with. This is a good time to start a new diet or exercise routine.
Mars will be in Virgo until October 4th so there may be arguments and aggression in general over health care, workers rights, and service oriented occupations. There may be more strikes or protests in the next two months than usual. In general, people may tend to be more critical and arguing over the little details. Be aware to not get too caught up in arguments over little things as they could go on and on.
