This Week’s Considerations is on video format!
Mercury stations to Direct Motion just after midnight Sunday morning (ET).
I discuss what Mercury Retrograde might have revealed about your personality and integrity and how to step forward with it in a new light with Mercury Direct.
Don’t fall into the autumn with the usual routines and traps.
Take the cosmic potential of this moment to reframe your goals and find the most effective opportunities ahead of you!
Also, I already know some ways I’d like to improve videos like these… but please tell me your thoughts on this format.

Day Guides below.
Astrological Day Guides: August 14 – 20, 2018
Read these guides as a whole to get a feel for the week’s tone. There’s always some overlap of themes. Then read them as you need them, day-by-day.
Tuesday – Fun new ways to relate to people from your past (re)surface. Explore the new potentials to see each other in new eyes. You may not figure out what that looks like yet, but it likely can sort itself out by August 23rd.
(Libra Moon conjoins Venus and sextiles Mercury Retrograde).
Wednesday – Old dirt rises to the surface and bitter feelings can spill over. Try to be a listening ear to the pain, whether it’s yours or someone else’s. These words have been simmering for too long, and talking it out might be the most effective way to heal. Remember – don’t take every word literally – think of it as a process. Draw conclusions together at the end so everyone is on the same page.
(Libra Moon squares Pluto and sextiles Sun).
Thursday – Yesterday’s raw feelings compact into powerful bullets. Be careful of making permanent schisms. A power dynamic wants to transform. Remain still in the energies and remember what’s for the highest good so to direct you to a positive outcome.
(Scorpio Moon opposes Uranus and sextiles Saturn).
Friday – Feel renewed, empowered and hopeful as a old identity melts away. You’re in the mood to make some lasting changes. Set the scene for those to happen now.
(Scorpio Moon conjoins Jupiter, trines Neptune and sextiles Pluto).
Saturday – Take some morning time to sit still and listen to yourself. There’s some inner guidance about movement in your life that wants to be heard. Take an early lunch during the void moon to transition your morning insights into the afternoon. Then, like your inspiration roar and unravel. The anxiety of keeping things to yourself and trying to maintain control can loosen. Let them express first. Then you can observe and learn from it.
(Scorpio Moon sextiles Mars before going Void 11:07am – 12:45pm EDT. Then, Sagittarius Moon. Mercury Retrograde-Venus sextile. Mercury stationing to go Direct around midnight EDT).
Sunday – You can feel unstoppable today. Center in on “the dream” and let yourself go for the ride. Sketch out a journey to attain parts of your dream, one at a time. Put yourself around positive people who lift you up. Emphasize your optimism.
(Sagittarius Moon trine Mercury, sextile Venus, square Neptune. Mercury is Direct Motion. Jupiter-Neptune trine).
Monday – Let the weekend’s flow and high-energy lift carry into your work week. Continue to focus in on your prize. Meaning, figure out how to participate in the circumstances and interactions that lift you up. Put yourself out there and see what happens. No need to commit to anything yet – just explore how you can make your dreams come true.
(Sagittarius Moon until 7:47pm EDT when it goes void for the rest of the day).
