Astrology Today: Monday, August 25, 2014 – New Moon

Astrology Today: Monday, August 25, 2014 – New Moon

Monday morning the Moon moves into Virgo and immediate conjunction with the Sun. The exact conjunction is the new moon. The new moon opposes Neptune in Pisces, and the new moon ruler, Mercury, sextiles the Mars Saturn conjunction.

The energetic renewal concerns itself with the balance of the grounded mind-body connection and the spirit. What do you know and feel in your bones? What do you believe? These may not be on the same page, but the do have to balance. This is the time to address that.

There is also an emphasis here on physical health and well-being. It’s a good time to put new systems into place.

Earthy Virgo Mercury’s sextile to Mars and Saturn in water translates thought and perception into action, work. It’s likely to be long-term work, but with the combo of Mars and Mercury in aspect to Uranus, it may be preceded by a quick JOLT.

Venus in Leo squares Mars-Saturn. I don’t think the net effect of this is going to feel all that great. And I think it’s going to take some work to turn a profit… real or metaphorical. It’s a work to please aspect, but it can be done.

Mercury opposes Chiron in Pisces. If you ask someone a question, don’t criticize their answer. Perfection stands across from scars. Health stands across from woundedness. The nurse stands across from the patient, but the patient may be an angel in disguise. A little cross contamination goes a long way. Compassionate healing takes place when they mix, on BOTH sides. Each may benefit.

The Venus-Saturn and the Mars-Saturn energies are potent. They’re pointy. Rough. But the new moon is laced with compassion. With the interplay of these energies, this renewal can be magnificent. This may be the push that overcomes inertia and propels one into a new phase.

Your Planet Tracker for August 20th: Mercury In Virgo, Aug 15, 2014 to Sep 1, 2014

Planet Tracker

Mercury in Virgo

Aug 15, 2014 to Sep 1, 2014


Mercury, the planet of communication, has two home signs: Gemini and Virgo. Gemini represents the objective airy side of thought, while Virgo is the practical, earthy side. Mercury in Virgo, then, is a time when thought is most likely to be used with efficiency and conversation grounded in reality.

A planet is considered to be strong when in its home sign, one which it is said to rule. This helps direct and refine its energies to higher levels of purity and power. Mercury in Virgo is, therefore, a strong period in which to analyze and criticize with great precision. Taken to its extremes, however, this can become a narrowness of thought that kills imagination and abstraction. Mercury in Virgo often works best after original ideas are born in rough form that can then be polished and refined.

Those born with Mercury in Virgo usually have very sharp minds that readily comprehend complex patterns and fine details. Success, though, comes when this narrow view is balanced with awareness of the big picture and higher orders of reality. The best thinkers are able to move comfortably among various perspectives to give the widest understanding possible.

Those born with Mercury in Virgo include the highly regarded basketball coach Phil Jackson, law professor Alan Dershowitz, Lyndon Johnson, Yasser Arafat, writers H.P. Lovecraft and Truman Capote, astronaut Neil Armstrong, chef Julia Child and spiritual teacher Sri Aurobindo.

The world of music offers composers Claude Debussy and George Gershwin, and singers Bobby Short, Whitney Houston and Madonna. Acting Mercury in Virgos include Dustin Hoffman, Peter O’Toole, Sean Connery, Ingrid Bergman, Melanie Griffith, Steve Martin, Michael Douglas, Chevy Chase, Lucille Ball and Mae West.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, August 20th

We are particularly sensitive to the recent emotional shifts once the reflective Moon sinks into moody Cancer at 4:44 am EDT. However, in romance actions speak louder than words with three planets still in affectionate Leo, including amorous Venus. Nevertheless, communicator Mercury requires us to stick with the facts as it speeds through practical Virgo. Acknowledging our feelings is healthy, but keeping them in perspective is even better.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Visions of romance come and go with the wind but you need to express your feelings to manifest the love you seek. Unfortunately, your fear of rejection or commitment may prevent you from acting on your desires today. Your emotions can lead you astray if you let your imagination run wild. Rely on the facts now and not your intuition; cool logic keeps you on track better than chasing a dream.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

Your uncharacteristic uncertainty prompts you to withhold your true feelings today. You might not feel emotionally safe enough to fully let down your guard out in public. However, you could find unexpected pleasure within the familiar comfort of your own home and family now. Nevertheless, current circumstances keep you busier than you prefer. You can’t change everything to your liking, but making little adjustments throughout the day brings enough progress to keep you happy.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Your desire to keep the flow of information moving swiftly along is in direct conflict with complex circumstances that are requiring you to slow the pace down. Although you want to make something happen in the real world, you’re more inclined to spend time in deep contemplation now. Ultimately, you must establish workable priorities by deciding which interactions are useful and which ones can be eliminated. A no-nonsense approach allows you to accomplish more than you expect.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Your self-esteem is on the upswing; you want others to notice your talents and appreciate what you have to offer. However, it’s not easy to put your feelings into words while the hypersensitive Moon is traveling through your sign. Instead of sharing too much information about yourself today, process your emotions on your own and then tell your story after you have time to think about it for a while. Waiting a couple of days gives you a chance to fine-tune your message for the optimum impact.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Others may find you quite alluring these days as several planets move through fabulous Leo and your 1st House of Personality, but you can only bend the rules so far. The idea of self-indulgence sounds tempting enough to consider skipping out on your responsibilities. You may seek satisfaction through a quick escape; however, this strategy isn’t a smart idea since the backlash at work could be more intense than you expect. Honoring your commitments offers its own sweet rewards.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Your brain has been operating in high gear ever since the weekend when cerebral Mercury moved into your analytical sign. Your senses are sharp and your thinking is clear. Nevertheless, you might still be distracted by your fantasies now, especially if someone is currently showing romantic interest in you. But don’t waste precious time in the pursuit of unrealistic dreams; be rational and do what makes the most sense, instead.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Your friends might be more oriented toward building relationships than you are now since your attention is primarily focused on your career ambitions. Nevertheless, you don’t want to lose your existing connections with others. Fortunately, you get along with nearly anyone at work these days because you can perceive unrealized potential everywhere you look. Remember, your current success may require you to keep your feelings under cover, so think carefully about your words before you start to speak. When in doubt, err on the side of silence.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You could feel a little bent out of shape now because you don’t believe that your friends truly understand your intentions. Even if you specifically make a point to tell them about your inner process, they still might jump to the wrong conclusions. Nevertheless, expressing your opinion is still healthier than keeping it bottled up inside. Simply state your side of the story but don’t force the issue; those who care the most will eventually appreciate the secrets you share.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You are on the hunt for the perfect travel companion to accompany you on your next great adventure. But even if you’re flying solo, this is a perfect time to plan a special vacation or embark on a quick summer getaway. Nevertheless, you must be careful about how much you disclose today because other people’s expectations may not match up with your desires. Share what you must, but keep your most unconventional thoughts to yourself until you know you are in like company.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Relationships may be playing the cosmic energy out on a battlefield now, especially if your needs go unrecognized by someone you love. You’re tempted to retreat into the safety of your inner world instead of confronting your fear of rejection by asking for what you want. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with taking a bit of time today to sort out your feelings. Fortunately, communication grows easier over the next few days, enabling you to resolve the current stress sooner than you expect.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Playful interactions between you and someone special may be deliciously sweet now. But it’s not all fun and games, even if you can fire up a new relationship or refuel an old one. There might be underlying tensions that prevent you from feeling emotionally fulfilled. Clear communication is the most essential element. Take a risk and express what’s on your mind. Sharing your dreams opens the door to wonderful possibilities.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You may feel as if you’re swimming in an entirely different ocean today, even if you’re still splashing about in the same old pond. Your current disorientation challenges you to balance your starry-eyed idealism with a more practical and grounded approach to life. Don’t rely on anyone to tell you what’s real because talkative Mercury’s presence in your 7th House of Companions allows others to sound more definitive than they really are now. Analyze all the facts, listen to your intuition and then decide for yourself.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

You’ll want to see the best in your lover but there might be a confusing mixed message to contend with on Monday. On the one hand, your love will make you feel overjoyed if you’re in a domestic arrangement together. You’ll have plenty of fun “playing house” but he or she might not be able to give you a straight answer if you decide to bring up an important topic. Try not to see this as him or her being evasive. Address the situation on Thursday when you’re more likely to have a promising dialogue.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

A special conversation with your sweetheart on Monday might leave you feeling over the top happy! Love planet Venus will embrace expansive Jupiter in your message sector opening the door for an unforgettable dialogue about romance.

Love might not cost a thing but this week you’ll be in the mood to spend serious cash on your lover.

Seriously Leo, how much happier can you possibly get? One thing’s for sure — this Monday you’ll find out!

You’ll be downright irresistible.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

A secret romance might be especially rewarding this week. On Monday, even if you still have to remain quiet about your affair you’re likely to feel more loved and in love than you ever have. If you have feelings for someone but have kept them quiet due to a fear of rejection, it’s time to toss that fear aside.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Everything good about your love life continues to somehow connect to the rest of your social life. If attached, the joy you’re experiencing these days with your lover as you both participate in a humanitarian endeavor is likely to be incredible. You might also join an organization that allows you to explore a shared interest. If single, your friends (or the Internet) are the best way to meet someone special now. Look to Monday for an invitation you couldn’t possibly refuse.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Love might not be as it appears early this week. A fuzzy opposition between communication planet Mercury and Neptune will only add to any already existing confusion between you and someone special. If you’re unsure about how this person truly feels about you, don’t even try to clear the air on Monday. You’ll only end up disappointed and befuddled. Instead, wait until Thursday when the lines of communication

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

If you’re single today might bring a stellar opportunity for you to find love in places that expand your mind and horizons. For example, if you’re enrolled in University, you may be walking along campus and see someone who literally stops you in your tracks.

All you need to do is have faith.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

If you’re in a relationship you might experience the most intense, transformational, heart opening intimacy with your partner this week. The ability you have now to “go there” with your mate and to allow him or her to see the depths of your psyche are unmatched now. You want to be seen — truly seen — by your love and you’re ready to confront any fear that’s associated with complete transparency. If you’re single, you may yearn for this type of love strongly now. What’s stopping you from achieving it?

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Are you sick and tired yet of hearing about how amazing your relationship potential is these days? If so, you may want to skip over your week’s forecast because the news is only getting better. Ah, you’re still reading. Good. On Monday you see, Venus and Jupiter — the two lucky planets in astrology — will embrace one another in a very beneficial conjunction. This link happens in your partnership sector and promises to bring you as much joy as you and your mate can possibly handle. Yummy!

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

If you’re married or in a committed relationship, steer clear of Monday to make any important decisions together or to have a conversation that is meaningful to either one of you. Mercury, now in your partnership sector, will oppose Neptune. This alignment can sometimes lead to misunderstandings, confusion or even disappointment in communication. At its worst, it can manifest as an outright lie. Thursday will be much more supportive to talk to one another. Dialogue on  this day will be positively transforming instead of bewildering.

Your Weekly Astrology Report for August 18 – 24

Weekly Astrology: August 18-24, 2014

Thank your lucky stars for this cosmic gift!

Maria DeSimoneMaria DeSimone on the topics of virgo, venus in leo, jupiter in leo, astrology
This can be an exquisite, lucky week for everyone. Even if your mind is slightly unfocused early on, don’t worry — overall it appears you’ll have everything under control by the weekend.

Monday, August 18: Venus conjunct Jupiter and Mercury opposite Neptune

It all starts with Monday’s glorious conjunction between Venus in Leo and Jupiter in Leo. These two planets in Astrology are known as the “benefics,” and when connected you can expect to be blessed! That cosmic blessing of course, depends on where this conjunction in Leo falls in your personal birth chart. In general, however, a Venus-Jupiter connection in Leo suggests a yummy gift in romance, creative self-expression or anything that gives you joy. Yay!

The only possible rub on Monday has to do with Mercury opposing Neptune. You’ll think every idea is a good one, and you might put too much faith in someone’s words. If this happens, you may be in for a disappointing reality check — so try not to make any major decisions or sign contracts on Monday.

Thursday, August 21: Mercury in Virgo trine Pluto

Wait until Thursday to make major decisions, because that is when Mercury in Virgo will be at a gorgeous angle to Pluto. That’s when you know your mind will be sharp and your judgment can be trusted!

Saturday, August 23: Sun in Virgo

Last but not least, the Sun will move into Virgo on Saturday, and for the next month you’ll shine a light on improving yourself in various ways. In particular, you’ll focus on work and productivity, and it’ll be a great time to concentrate on improving your health.
