There are deep passions and tensions brewing this week, along with a healthy dose of confusion and misunderstanding. But there are also opportunities for healing and for recognition of there being more to a story than meets the eye, which will ultimately work in our favor.
With the Moon in Scorpio, the past couple of days may have been gut-wrenchingly emotional, but this has hopefully also brought deep self-awareness. Also, earlier on Monday, Jupiter opposed Saturn, asking for wisdom as we work to find balance within relationships.
Now the Moon is in Sagittarius, helping us to see beyond the horizon, bringing wisdom and fresh optimism. Also today (Tuesday), the Sun sesquiquadarates the North Node, bringing a real chance to make a mark on our future.
On Aug. 20, 2010 Mercury stations retrograde in Virgo until Sep. 12, 2010. On the same day, in a span of 24 hours, the Sun opposes Neptune and Chiron, Venus conjuncts Mars in Libra, and Saturn squares Pluto –- and these are only the major aspects! (Please read the Leo New Moon report for detailed astrology and interpretation of these aspects.)
Communication may seem to halt as Mercury slows down, but there is important information due to surface. Pay attention to details; a small factor or seemingly insignificant piece of information that you learn could change your perspective and turn everything around. We are separating fact from fiction. Ultimately, this will be a valuable process of discovery, so be grateful for what you are learning.
Relationships are surely in focus. Be cautious of over-fantasizing, but the Saturn-Pluto square is sure to bring a heavy dose of reality to keep us grounded.
Just don’t allow yourself to get so bogged down by the pressure that you fail to recognize what is beautiful, special and important in your world. The Sun is still shining in Leo for another week, so don’t forget to have fun!

You may be deeply confused about how to proceed within a relationship or financial situation. You’ve been racking your brain to find the best way forward and may have come up with nothing. Rather than doubt yourself or others, wait until you have all the facts. You can have conversations with partners that, although asking you to question your assumptions, can bring you a deeper understanding of reality as it stands. Don’t be too quick to judge or criticize; instead, look for solutions. Take time for self-reflection, and be honest about your needs, fears, and desires. You are being shown the road forward, but it will mean coming to terms with the past. Over the coming weeks, you can renegotiate important agreements based on what works. Financially as well as emotionally, there are greater treasures for you to discover, so don’t waste your time worrying. Consider this a process of securing foundations and getting on the same page with the most important people in your world.
