Venus in Leo... A Sparkling Week! Your Astrology Overview for the week of August 3, 2015

Hello, I’m Astrologer Patrick Arundell, and here is your Astrology Overview for WC 3rd August, 2015. This week sees Saturn very much to the fore. First off, it is now traveling in a forward direction, after a 5 1/2 month backward track. Since the middle of June. It's been reversing in the sign of Scorpio. Saturn in Scorpio can put greater emphasis on resources, sexuality, shared assets, and property matters and all of these have been under an extra degree of scrutiny, perhaps, both in our own lives, and in the wider context of society.

Now, with Saturn going forwards, and all of this week, forging a brilliant link with Mars, it is possible to balance the structural benefits of Saturn with the more go-ahead energies of the tiny red planet. So if there is something that you thoroughly researched,  and you're quite clear about what your objectives are, and you’re managing your time and resources shrewdly, this week can see you make significant progress.

Venus and Jupiter also continue to sparkle tightly together, in the sign of Leo. This is probably one of the most heartwarming and generous aspects possible. Yet, that doesn't stop Saturn demonstrating another side of its capabilities, in squaring up to both these, and in the second half of the week, with the planet of talk and thought Mercury. So what does this mean? Well feel any situation where we are not being very shrewd in terms of managing things, or would be rather slapdash in terms of the extent to which were enjoying ourselves, could see us get getting pulled up. Saturn square with Mercury can also have quite an impact on the nervous system, causing headaches and stress. When it comes to any kind of risk taking, especially with big ticket items in terms of the cost, we do need to try to not get too carried away in the ebullience that all this Leo energy – that the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter conjunct, can collectively create.

Furthermore, there's also a Quarter Moon on Friday in Taurus. This is much more to do with everyday resources, however, equally it still encouraging us to marshal these carefully and not to be overly generous, splash cash on things we don't really need, or support someone close to us financially who should really be taking more personal responsibility for their own situation.

However Saturday does see a change in the heavens when Mercury makes its way into Virgo. Virgo is one of the two zodiac signs that Mercury is the ruler of, the other being Gemini, but here Mercury brings its natural precision to bear, and the ability to be more discriminating and applied. However much all the Leo energy this week is urging us to be creative, this switch of Mercury is asking us to focus on the details.

Mars is also on the March as this week draws to a close on Sunday, this time ingressing into Leo. Leo in Mars is a very dramatic influence fantastic anything to do with performance ,the arts, larger-than-life gestures and giving confidence to more self expressive possibilities. Don't be surprised in the following six weeks if there is a new fashion designer, that breaks through in a big way, or someone new comes to prominence in the world of popular culture.

Blue Moon and a Challenging Week Ahead - Astrology Overview for the Week of July 27th, 2015

Hello, I’m Astrologer Patrick Arundell, and here is your Astrology Overview for WC 27th July, 2015. This week is dominated by two astrological squares. Now, a square is when two planets are at right angles to one another, and this can cause a certain amount of abrasive energy. Speaking of which, the square between Mars and Uranus is probably one of the most abrasive energies possible, especially in the Zodiac signs that each planet occupies at the current time. Uranus in Aries is a very unstable, volatile influence and this is the planet of erratic changes, at the best of times. The raw power of Aries revs up its appetite for instability, change and rebellion even more. Mars in Cancer on the other hand, is rather a defensive, and with both planets are the being in Cardinal signs; one valuing security = Cancer, and the other initiation = Aries, you can instantly see why this week can see some battles between maintaining the status quo or control, or making sudden alterations.
Jupiter is also squaring up to Saturn, but this is a longer standing influence, and in some ways they can balance each other out, with Saturn asking testing questions about Jupiter's desire to expand at will.

A third planetary square also overlaps into this week from last week, in the guise of the Quarter Moon in Scorpio this can see all sorts of fizzing energies, in relation to faulty judgement around risk taking, or inappropriate relationships, which can shape up and burn out very rapidly.

But the last few days of this week are particularly busy. The very last day of the month, on Friday, sees a Full Moon in Aquarius. This is the second Full Moon of the month, thus creating the phenomenon known as the blue Moon.

In reality, this is a battle between, the Aquarius principles of the group and the nurturing of co-operation, battling with the more ego centred demands of the Sun in Leo. For most of us this points towards having to manage your time more carefully and balancing the needs of our love life against friendships or group activities.

Uranus forges a much more positive influence on Saturday and Sunday in its angle with Mercury. This points towards innovation, fresh ideas, and sudden solutions to long-standing problems. And socially probably the enjoyment of some unexpected visitors, or invites which delight.

Saturday and Sunday also sees Venus combine with Jupiter in Leo, probably one of the most joyous combinations possible, and really this can be a tremendous boost if you are attending a function party, or going out for the night.

Feeling Exasperated? Your Astrology Overview for the week of July 20th, 2015

Hello, I’m Astrologer Patrick Arundell, and here is your Astrology Overview for WC 20th July, 2015. The week begins with the Sun, Mercury and Mars all in the sign of Cancer. However, in the case of Mars is also in a disruptive right angle with the planet of rebellion Uranus. This particular aspect can create an awful lot of tension. Mars in Cancer can be very reactive, whereas Uranus in Aries, very uncontrollable. This can lead to outpourings of frustration, and suddenly frayed tempers.

The great news however is that the Sun moves on Thursday into quite literally, the Sunny sign of Leo. This of course is its home Zodiac sign and gives it an opportunity to really create more warmth, drama and creativity in the following four weeks. He is joined the next day by Mercury on Friday, moving into Leo too. Mercury is far happier here than in the sign of cancer, where it has been for the previous twenty one days. This gives us all an opportunity to embrace more outgoing, sociable and lively agenda.

Yet despite this, Saturn does remain in a tight right angle itself all week with Jupiter, but I think this is can be one of those squares, which can actually be really quite helpful, into far as they both have very contrasting energies, and in some ways can offset each is more negative sides. Saturn helps Jupiter to be more grounded, and Jupiter helps Saturn to be less miserable!

A further earthy influence comes on Saturday when Venus goes into retrograde in the sign of Virgo. But this is going to be quite short lived only lasting until the end of July, in Virgo that is, the retrograde will continue right through until the end of the first week of September, but throughout that transition will be in the sign of Leo. However, what this will to see the square between Venus and Saturn be repeated, so from now until that time. Relationships generally are going to continue to be very much under the astral microscope.For more on your personal Zodiac Sign, please watch my FREE video or visit my site: PatrickArundell.com
