This Week’s Astro-Insights – 7th-13th August 2017


Venus trine Neptune

The week begins with a Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius. Amplifying the effect of the Full Moon, this six monthly event will help bring about a shift in yours or other’s attitudes and feelings towards your role and/or membership within a certain group, community or society.

Coming off the back of Friday’s Jupiter-Pluto square, it is also an opportunity to let go of social conventions or relationship habits that may have been limiting your options or negatively impacting on your ability to make plans, promises or decisions.

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
