Mercury Retrograde into Virgo - Your Astrology for the week of August 29th, 2016

Hello, I’m Astrologer Patrick Arundell, and here is your Astrology Overview for WC 29th August. This week, on Tuesday, Mercury goes into the third of its annual retrogrades. On the same day, Venus the planet of relating, moves into your opposite sign of Libra. There is a little bit of an irony with this because, as Mercury slams on the brakes so communications can become a lot less fluid, and we are all going to have to work harder at communicating our message clearly. Yet Venus back in Libra is a glorious location and one which reminds us all for the need for diplomacy, and to be sure that when we discuss anything of a tricky nature we choose our words carefully.

With Mars and Saturn continuing their conjunction through to midweek, focusing our energies as precisely as possible, and especially around any physical activities, fact-finding, contracts, and travel all remain important.

However, the Sun in Virgo does go into an opposition with Neptune from Tuesday through to the end of the week. This potentially is a very difficult aspect. There is also a Solar Eclipse on Thursday the 1st of September, which feeds into this opposition, and the square Neptune has had since mid may to the restrictive energies of Saturn.

Virgo is all about virtue, and the need to make sure the practicalities are tied down and work well and are accurate. The dreamy, drifting, cloying, dissolving energies of Neptune will almost seem to go out of their way to break down this precision, and with Mercury the ruler of Virgo, starting this retrograde, the potential for misunderstandings is quite high anyway.

So this is where the diplomacy and charm of Venus in Libra is going to be so important. We must all make sure that we don't jump to conclusions about things and give ourselves time to work issues out rationally.

It's Virgo Season! - Your Astrology Forecast for the week of Aug 22, 2016

Hello, I’m Astrologer Patrick Arundell, and here is your Astrology Overview for WC 22nd August. The Sun powers into Virgo on Tuesday, returning after an eleven months absence. He joins with the trio of Mercury Jupiter and Venus, bringing a tremendous Virgo dimension to bear in the heavens, and of course, as above, so below. So what does this mean?

The virtuous strand that was building up last week with the combination of Mercury and Jupiter is going to be emphasised even more. But the crucial thing with this week is that from Wednesday to Sunday Mercury, Venus and Jupiter are all going to be side-by-side or conjunct. In the first half of the week, Mercury and Jupiter continue their close alliance. This points towards some kind of good fortune, and it's possible that we going to be reading about some health breakthroughs, possibly about new cure’s or radical approaches, that can improve the lot of some of the world’s citizens. But of course is what we do in our own lives that is the most important thing, and don't be surprised if you find yourself drawn towards some kind of therapeutic treatment, such as a massage, chiropractic, or some other form of healing.

The more informed we continue to become about diets and the micronutrients that are contained in various food sources is also going to be a smart thing to do. If you find yourself checking the label in the supermarket, good for you. With such a sedimentary lifestyle that many of us lead these days being more physically active can also be an outcome from this particular set of influences.

But Virgo is also the sign of service, and there is a world of difference between this and being servile, but if we can find a way to use our skill sets, or talents in order to help other people this would be a very fine thing to do. If you work in an industry which is service led and linked to health, food, distribution or providing tangible benefits, it could really flourish at this time.

However, the Sun does square up to a Gemini Quarter Moon on Thursday, suggesting what we shouldn't do is try too hard to pack too much into this week, so there is a kind of irony here that is to be virtuous, but not try to be too virtuous.

All of this week also continues to see the conjunction between Saturn and Mars. This requires us to concentrate hard and narrow our range of activities onto the things that are really essential, but I think information and knowledge or anything to do with long-distance communications, travel and overseas involvements can all be very much the fore. However, just like last week, the complex influence of Neptune cannot be underestimated, so just be conscious of your own motives and those of anyone you get closely involved with.

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius - Astrology Forecast for the week of August 15th, 2016

Hello, I’m Astrologer Patrick Arundell, and here is your Astrology Overview for WC 15th August. The week begins with the Sun continuing in Leo. The big event of the week, however, comes on Thursday when there is a partial lunar Eclipse in the sign of Aquarius. This also blends in with the modern ruler of Aquarius, Uranus, suggesting that there can be some restlessness around relationships, social interactions and even friendships. Any desire on the part of any person to be more controlling about our personal space and freedom may become a burning issue from this.

From Tuesday the emphasis which is set to grow in Virgo, comes from a combination between Mercury and Jupiter. With Venus in this location too, this encourage us as to do things which are virtuous in some way, and enable us to grow our awareness to what we eat, and drink and become more conscious of personal physical fitness. When Jupiter and Mercury get-together it can help us to feel more optimistic, but it's also important to stay focused on the details, something which Jupiter can be less inclined to encourage. Fortunately Mercury is the ruler of Virgo, and this can help to bring greater precision to bear.

From Wednesday through to the end of the week. Saturn is joined in Sagittarius, by the storming energies of Mars. This is going to help to reinforce our desire to be expansive, or more go-getting and physical in our approach. If you have been feeling drained or down on vitality, or emotional energy, and especially since mid-May, it really wouldn't be a surprise. This is due to the continuing enervating angle between Neptune and Saturn. Mars is going to stiffen Saturn's resolve yet by the end of the week, it too is going to be affected by Neptune, and because Mars is the planet of desire, and in itself will be constrained by the energies of Saturn, all of this encourages us not to take shortcuts, and also to be conscious of what people tell us because information could prove to be unreliable at best and deceptive at worst.
