Tuesday, AUGUST 18
Both Mercury and the Sun form quincunxes to Saturn today, and there can be some sensitivity to how our ideas are received. Mental anxiety can interfere with making good, practical choices. There can be communication challenges or mental blocks. The desire to enjoy ourselves can clash with our material goals. Doubts might slow down our movements and initiatives. Even so, this can be a helpful process as we take a break from pushing ahead. We might now see the need to adjust our plans based on new responsibilities or a reality check.
A Venus-Uranus aspect also in force today helps loosen up, however. This transit encourages our bolder, more innovative natures, socially speaking. We are most interested in all that is new, unusual, and out-of-the-ordinary with romantic involvements, personal pleasures, and financial undertakings. We may be experimenting, improvising, and trying on new ways of relating to others and expressing ourselves. ‘
The Moon spends the day in happy, generous Leo, and a New Moon occurs in the sign tonight at 10:42 PM EDT. The New Moon in Leo can prompt a new beginning with romance, creative endeavors, hobbies, relationship with children, and our self-confidence or healthy pride in ourselves. It’s time to awaken our “inner child” and find ways to express ourselves creatively. There is stop-and-go energy with this lunation–something might be releasing but a block or obstacle can appear. These ups and downs may motivate us to begin anew or clean the slate.
