Highlights this week are a big double Monkey Tuesday, a four-planet grand trine on Wednesday, and energy builds to a Full Moon at 11:09 PDT on Sunday!
Mon Aug 4 is Fire SHEEP day. Moon conjuncts Saturn can feel blue, or too serious. And Sheep can be a worrier. Fortunately Moon trines Venus so enjoy life on a Sheep day! Sun, Moon, and Jupiter conjunction for new ideas and creativity. Sheep days are fortunate in this Horse year. Sheep day luck strong for Sheep, Rabbit, Horse, and Pig. Sheep hours 1 – 3 pm.
Tues Aug 5 is a Double Monkey day; Earth MONKEY day in Water Monkey month! Lots of Monkey activity with everybody talking! Sun and Mercury trine Uranus for innovation and experimentation. Moon trines Mercury and Jupiter to express emotions and talk your way to success. But Moon squares Neptune so no lies or monkeyshines including Monkey exaggeration and tall tales. Monkey day luck strong for Monkey, Rat, Dragon, and Snake. Monkey hours 3 – 5 pm.
Wed Aug 6 is Earth PHOENIX (Rooster) day. Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Uranus in a lucky grand trine! Grand trines bring grace, ease, and flow. Time for new activities, new discoveries, and fresh excitement. Can make fast change to be reborn on Phoenix day. But Sun and Mercury square Saturn so communication can be tedious. Energy builds to Full Moon on Sunday. Phoenix day luck strong for Phoenix, Ox, Dragon, and Snake. Phoenix hours 5 – 7 pm.
Thurs Aug 7 is Metal DOG day. Dog days are fortunate in Horse year. Sun and Mercury trine Uranus for inspiration, but also square Saturn for realism. So stay balanced and practical. Mars trines Neptune adding strength and dignity, two classic Dog traits. Energy builds to Full Moon on Sunday. Dog day luck strong for Dog, Rabbit, Tiger, and Horse. Dog hours 7 – 9 pm.
Fri Aug 8 is Metal PIG day with lots of astrological activity! Moon conjuncts Pluto can get deep and want to experience strong emotions. But lighten up instead on Pig day! Save probing the depths for a Snake day. Be a practical idealist; Sun conjunct Mercury squares Saturn and trines Uranus. Or Moon squares Uranus so do what you want. Energy builds to Full Moon on Sunday. Pig day luck strong for Pig, Tiger, Rabbit, and Sheep. Pig hours 9 – 11 pm.
Sat Aug 9 is a Water RAT day, a Rat day that’s fortunate in this Water Monkey month. Moon opposite Venus and Jupiter for social times. Plus Venus conjuncts Jupiter that’s nice for a party or get together. But Mars conjuncts Saturn so a day to slow down and not take on too many Rat-day errands or obligations. Energy builds to Full Moon tomorrow. Rat day luck strong for Rat, Ox, Dragon, and Monkey. Rat hours 11 pm – 1 am.
Sun Aug 10 is a Full Moon at 11:09 PDT that marks the middle of Monkey month. Sun, Moon, and Mercury all square Saturn for differing viewpoints and all kinds of worries. So.avoid Monkey mind tail chasing. Plus Mars conjuncts Saturn so we have to slow down. That’s OK on steady Water OX day. Venus conjuncts Jupiter for luck in romance on the Full Moon. Ox day luck strong for Ox, Rat, Snake, and Phoenix (Rooster). Ox hours 1 am – 3 am.
Good luck and have a great week,
