Weekly horoscopes for 13 to 19 August 2018 are up on the site now - link in bio. Pic courtesy of Pixabay.
A fairly quiet week after all the eclipses over the past month. We still have retrograde Saturn in a one-degree orb of trining retrograde Uranus, which will be playing out in the background until the 22nd of September.
Saturn the planet of responsibility and planning aspects Uranus the planet of the new, exciting and revolutionary. The trine aspect is a helpful one, and the solar and lunar eclipses of the past month have all been about clearing the decks and opening up new opportunities. While it might not be a good time to go out all guns blazing just yet, now would be a great time to plan and set things in motion for when the astrological landscape is better suited.
Saturn and Uranus are both retrograde at the moment, along with Mercury, Mars, Neptune, and Pluto. Mercury will be coming to the end of its retrograde phase at the end of the week, although the shadow period lasts until the 1st of September. Mars stations direct on the 27th of this month.
Late on the 17th, retrograde Mercury stations (slows down ready to change direction). It is while Mercury is stationed on the 18th, that Venus catches up to form a sextile to Mercury.
Usually the inner planet aspects the planet further out, but as Mercury is almost at a stop when this happens, it is Venus moving forward that brings the aspect to exactness.
Very late on the 18th, Mercury stations direct and will resume forward motion late on the 19th. Very early on the 19th, Jupiter will trine retrograde Neptune.
All in all, it should be quite a nice week and potentially quite romantic for many.
