Good Things are Possible! Your Astrology Overview for the week of August 31st, 2015

Hello, I’m Astrologer Patrick Arundell, and here is your Astrology Overview for WC 31st August, 2015. The week begins with the Sun located in a very practical location, but the clarity or at least precision that the Sun’s passage thru Virgo often brings, is going to be dissipated somewhat by the opposition of Neptune, which goes on until Thursday. The positive side of this influence is that it can make us more self-sacrificing, however, the dreamy hazy energies of Neptune can also see the Sun lose its ability to discriminate, one of the Sun in Virgo's great gifts. Because of this it is going to be important to try to stay very focused around any issue which does require a real attention to detail. If we rush decisions or rely on vague information we could come to some false positions. If you're buying or selling anything of value for example take great care. The same is true around agreements.

However the week does see Mars combining with Venus through to Saturday. If you recall, Venus has been tracking backwards in retrograde, ever since 25th July 2015. For most of that time all but five days, Venus has been in Leo, which is one of its most sparkling locations, nonetheless the retrograde has been asking us all to think very carefully about how we relate to others, how others relate to us, and how we approach any kind of creativity or artistry in our lives. The problem is that Saturn has been Squaring Venus for six of the intervening weeks, and therefore whatever our best intentions, and however sincere, we may have been the weakest of ties may have seemed even weaker, and some may have come to a complete end. Fortunately, on Sunday of this week , Venus starts to go forwards, and this is something we can all celebrate. Furthermore is conjunction with Mars this week is a lovely balance between the two principals of masculinity and femininity, around relating and expressing feelings. So good things are possible.

Yet the plot does they can slightly towards the end of this week, as it's Jupiter's turn to go opposite Neptune. Both these are the rulers of Pisces, and of course in Jupiter's case it is in detriment in the sign of Virgo. Exaggeration is something we should all try to avoid towards the end of this week on the back of this particular influence. However, this can have its up sides, and can give us the sense that anything is possible. The Quarter Moon on Saturday in Gemini, is also a reminder not to try too hard, but to schedule our activities in a way which is achievable. All this dreamy Neptune swilling around this week and this Quarter Moon, so creating an action plan is going to be a good idea.

Finally, the Sun in Virgo forges a really positive Alliance with Pluto. This occurs over the last three days. This is one of the most transforming of all aspects, and can help us to view our inner selves more clearly, and also make some fundamental changes in the outer part of our world in of words the physical areas. So if you find yourself  building a wall, or building up any kind of structure in your situation,  upgrading or improving, this can be an aspect that will drive the process forwards. Sometimes, however Pluto will inflict upon us changes that we are not necessarily ready for. The strangest part of Pluto However, is that it often does make those changes sometimes against our will, but on reflection, we can look back and see they were good for us. So if it does seem that things are changing without your agreement, try to be philosophical about them.

Practicality & Passion - Astrology Overview for the week of August 24th, 2015

Hello, I’m Astrologer Patrick Arundell, and here is your Astrology Overview for WC 24th August, 2015. The week begins with the Sun finding his feet in the sign of Virgo. With Jupiter the planet of fortune, having recently arrived in this Zodiac sign too, both combine for the whole of this week. Ordinarily this would be considered one of the most fortunate of all planetary influences. There can be a sense that anything is possible, and when it comes to issues related to health, fitness and diet, a lot of new ideas are going to be washing around the global consciousness. But actually Jupiter is in detriment in the sign of Virgo. This is because Virgo is about precision, accuracy, being of service, and to a degree, purity, whereas Jupiter is all about expansion and being optimistic without examining the downside too much. Therefore, this combination this week suggests we shouldn't be too gung ho in our approach, and should try to stay as grounded as possible. It is still broadly a good influence, but we need to under promise and over deliver.

Monday and Tuesday also see an influence running on from last week, a very special alliance between Venus and Uranus. This suggests trying different approaches to social interests, creativity, fashion, and of course love. If your relationship has become rather too predictable this is a great time to try to reinvigorate it. A good time for a new makeover too.

Friday can also be broadly good for all relationships, for Mercury moves into the sign of Libra. Mercury in Virgo, although one of its two home zones, can be rather brittle and critical, and of course it went through a confusing opposition with Neptune during week commencing 10th August.
Mercury in Libra is excellent for being more dispassionate about all sorts of relationships. Hearing that other people have different views, but not taking them personally. The natural Libra energy towards fairness, and give and take is something we can all embrace.

However, on Saturday there is a Full Moon in Pisces and this is close enough to Neptune to be really significant. This can cause a great deal of confusion, and also be draining on our physical vitality. There could be a degree of deceit that does the rounds, and if we are negotiating about anything we have to be conscious of what our motives are and those of others. Fortunately, Friday to Sunday also sees Venus combining with Mars in Leo. This is one of the most charismatic of all planetary
conjunctions, and can be superb for any kind of artistic, performance or social trends. The trick therefore, is going to be in remaining upbeat and positive, but focusing our energies on a narrow range of achievable targets, whilst combining practicality with passion.For more on your personal Zodiac Sign, please watch my FREE video or visit my site: PatrickArundell.com

Romance and Transformation - Astrology Overview for the week of August 17th, 2015

Hello, I’m Astrologer Patrick Arundell, and here is your Astrology Overview for WC 17th August, 2015. The week begins with a big Virgo influence in the form of the Moon passing over Mercury and the pair forging a penetrative connection with Pluto, in the sign of Capricorn.
So even though the Sun continues to combine with Venus on Monday in the charismatic fire sign of Leo, all this does create a new, earthier by dimension around recent events.

The Sun and Venus also combines with Uranus on Monday, but in the case of Venus this Trine, which is very positive is going to go on for the rest of the week. This points towards unexpected but rather delightful social and romantic opportunities. Venus also governs finances, so flair and innovation can also work well in terms of speculation. Of course we need to be sure that we can lose anything that we might venture, but if you are looking to engender some extra excitement in your world, Venus's
angle with Uranus will certainly help. This may also see us attracted to more avant-garde ways of dressing, styling our hair or being drawn towards performers who are groundbreaking and challenging.

This is also the last week that this year that the Sun will pass through Leo, but just before it says goodbye on Saturday it forges a square with the moon in Scorpio. This waning Quarter Moon suggest that they could be some possessive, jealous, or controlling issues swirling around some close relationships. And if you are attracted to someone on impulse, or on a purely sexual basis just be sure of what you are getting into.

The Sun, relocates finally into Virgo on Sunday, and merges with Jupiter. This is one of the most positive of all planetary aspects and points towards the potential for good fortune, and larger than life events. In the sign of Virgo, It also suggests that we should all seek to become more educated about health, fitness and dietary issues.
