On Wednesday night, August 17th at 11:27 pm here in Hawaii (-10 GMT), the Moon and Sun will be opposite each other and joined the eclipse points in an almost eclipse. We will not see the eclipse as the Moon will be outside of the realm of the South Node, Ketu, but we will certainly still feel some effects! The Moon will be in Aquarius, the innovative sign that pushes new frontiers and expands our social thinking. In the humble abode of the Water Bearer, with the Ketu, the smokey tail of disillusionment, we will find our Full Psyche a bit more reticent to express itself than in other Full Moon's. We may lack the desire or confidence to share our thoughts, ideas, feelings and emotions...but we will feel a futuristic connection to our universal energy simultaneously along with our past existences and ancestry from which we all come. In the nakshatra of Dhanistha we learn the steady rhythms of Time immemorial and we dance to the beat of our own unique drum. Dhanistha is ruled by the Vasu, the deities of the elements; Earth, Water, Fire, Air, Space and the luminaries; Sun, Moon and Stars. The Vasus are the physical embodiment of cosmic shakti, teaching us to put our knowing to good use just as the vast wisdom of the universe is embodied in these elements and bodies in space. This star straddles the signs of Capricorn and Aquarius, having qualities both of the practical and opportunistic Makara (Crocodile) and the highest conceivable intellect of Aquarius (Kumbha).
Our Sun will be across the sky in his own sign of Leo, having just moved there on Tuesday morning August, 16th. In Leo our sense of Power and Leadership will be feeling quite high, as if aligned with our highest soul calling. We will step into our Strength and have Purpose and Dignity while we do. Rahu, the North Node of the Moon is joined the Sun here, as are both Venus and Mercury, although Mercury will be moving on out and into Virgo in just two days and Venus will follow on the 24th. Rahu will be giving a surreal expression to the Sun while he inhabits his own sign, especially as the middle of this Sun cycle brings us right into a Solar Eclipse on September 1st. This will be a time of confusion and delusion with regards to our Power and Authority in whatever house Leo falls for you.

Jupiter, only a week into his year long bout in Virgo is surely bringing us to our intellect and discernment, while we do the research to prove to ourselves why we Believe what we believe. For more information on this transit, check out this special report highlighting this long, new transit of our planet of Expansion, Wealth, Beliefs and Teachers...JUPITER.. The biggest blessing in a Jupiter Virgo transit is the increased awareness of our physical health and how important it is to take care of our bodies. Get back into your exercise or yoga routine, eat fruits and veggies and avoid stress and loud environments. Jupiter is the planet of our health and Virgo is where we have a very sensitive system, requiring the purest and most natural healing from the Earth and plenty of greenery surrounding us. Heal anxiety with Essential Oils and Breath Control Techniques, as well as time spent in the garden.
When Mercury joins Jupiter we will feel greater clarity with our words and ideas, and a more detail, research-oriented approach to collecting and dispensing information to others. Our words will help express our beliefs in accurate and down-to-earth terms. We will be more flexible and less bossy! We will also find ourselves with a little less confidence. Venus in Virgo will have us losing our flamboyant edge and opting for a more demure and feminine sexuality. We might find ourselves more reserved in relationship to others, certainly if we are single and in the dating scene. Movies, Museums, Alternative Healing and Nature Dates will appeal to our Venus in Virgo selves, anything that stimulates the intellect and nourishes our bodies. Dress more modestly and be ready for conversation that goes beyond the flirt zone!
Saturn and Mars are coming closer and will be in exact degrees of each other in Scorpio on next Tuesday, August 23rd....Whatever Fears we have been working through since February in the area of our life that Scorpio rules will be coming to head at this point. The icy exterior of Saturn will be exploded by Mars' fiery army of Action, whose been forcing us to face whatever we are most afraid of. As tumultuous as this may be, it is also quite freeing as nothing is more binding and paralyzing than Fear!
