Tuesday, AUGUST 25
Today’s astrology is busy. The Moon continues its transit of Scorpio until 8:49 AM EDT when it enters Sagittarius. The First Quarter Moon occurs this afternoon when the Sun in Virgo forms a square to the Moon in Sagittarius. Our initiative is strong, although it tends to come as a result of conflict or tension.
A Mercury-Uranus trine opens us to creative ideas. Communications may be a little compromised or strained due to perceiving things emotionally or through our insecurities or fears as Mercury gets between the Mars-Saturn square later today. Ideally, we’re finding answers that are not the most obvious ones, and we can get to some exciting places on a mental level.
The Sun forms a sesquiquadrate to Jupiter, and Venus opposes Jupiter today, adding a layer of restlessness to the day’s astrology. We seek a little more from our lives, pleasures, money, or relationships. Channeled well, these aspects encourage us to improve but otherwise might lead to over-indulgence, immoderation, or exaggeration. We should watch for overestimating our capabilities now since we may feel we can take on more than is reasonable. High expectations can leave us vulnerable to ups and downs. If we’re not in touch with our feelings or are discontented, it can be tempting to overreach. Routines in our lives become glaringly unsatisfying now. We might have trouble setting or recognizing boundaries temporarily. We might also feel torn between two equally appealing desires, situations, or viewpoints. The Venus-Jupiter opposition is a feel-good aspect but inclines to excess. The desire to experience it all is active today.
The void Moon occurs from 2:27 AM EDT, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a sextile to Saturn), until the Moon enters Sagittarius at 8:49 AM EDT.
