The Week Ahead

So anyways, I’ve been in Sydney for the last week and a bit. It was a combo of work and family responsibilities. It all went well, but I’m glad to be home – exhausted, but glad.

Aside from work and family, it’s been all systems go since I’ve been home as I tried out a new foodie night market, took a scenic flight in an open cockpit bi-plane, and went to my first meeting of an astrology group here on the Sunny Coast. It was great to meet and chat with people who talk my language…so to speak.

As always, if you want to know what I’ve been up to in my other life, you can catch up on my rambles at and anyways.

Ok, obviously last week the news and the hype was all about the eclipse. This week things aren’t nearly so exciting astro weather wise.

Although Mercury moves back into Leo in the wee small hours of September 1 (here in Australia), we have to wait until Saturday for our first interesting aspect – Mars trine Uranus. Now, given that this falls at the degree of last week’s solar eclipse, I suspect it could be more ummm unpredictably exciting than a Mars trine Uranus aspect usually is. This is very much a breaking free aspect – and one that you might be tempted to make despite your own inhibitions and the consequences. Who knows whether this is right or wrong, easy or hard. Uranus is, above all, unpredictable. The enlightenment that comes from this action could, however, be you learning more about yourself…or, indeed, others learning something surprising about you.

In any case, if you had planets impacted by last week’s eclipse, keep an eye open for this one.

To end the week Mercury joins forces with Mars – again at 28 Leo…wow, this position has been popular of late. This is very much a put your money where your mouth is sort of aspect. Or, if you’re not familiar with that saying, it’s about putting actions into your words, standing up for your beliefs. It’s great for putting plans into action, but not so good if you’re spoiling for a fight. Bear in mind that the push-back you might be getting from others could be a projection from yourself. Also, don’t forget that Mercury is retrograde, so misunderstandings could get in the way of forward progress.

Ok, that’s it!

Have a great week…
