We have a busy weekend coming up filled with many positive aspects assisting us in re-organizing and improving on our day-to-day lives, and helping us to put in the necessary work to expand on our most adventurous long-term goals and plans. With Venus moving into Leo on Friday, this may also be an excellent time for romance, play, or simply to spend a night out on the town enjoying the company of some good friends!
Friday (8/25): Venus finishes out it’s transit through the nurturing, supportive sign of Cancer and officially moves into the romantic, fiery sign of Leo today! With the ruling planet of romance, sensuality and relationships in the dramatic sign of Leo, our displays of affection can become much more showy and over-the-top! Venus in Leo loves to go out and spend a romantic night on the town (as opposed to the energy of Venus in Cancer which loves to curl up at home with a good movie). This is also a very sensual, playful energy, which can help to reignite the spark of romance in our long term-partnerships or bring a passionate romantic fling for those who are single. With Venus in Leo, we can expect others to become much more affectionate, loyal and attentive over these next few weeks— but be sure to return the favor as our loved ones may also crave extra attention in return! ☺
Saturday (8/26): The Sun comes into conjunction with retrograde Mercury today, amplifying our mental energy and highlighting areas in which we need to re-organize and tie up loose ends. We may find ourselves overwhelmed with communications from others around this time, or we may simply feel bombarded with an abundance of thoughts and new ideas. This may also be an anxious energy for some, especially for those who are prone to anxiety or are impacted directly by this transit (Virgo, Pisces, Sagittarius, and Gemini Sun/Moon/Rising will feel it most!). This is an excellent day to take stock of what’s working well for us all in our health, work, and daily routines and to work on resolving and letting go of anything that may be holding us back in these areas.
Sunday (8/27): Jupiter in Libra makes a supportive sextile over to retrograde Saturn in Sagittarius today. This is a powerful aspect that brings greater optimism, balance and support to our long-term goals and plans. If we’ve been putting in the hard work and doing so with integrity over these past couple of years throughout Saturn’s transit through Sagittarius, this aspect may bring many long-lasting benefits to our work, relationships, contracts, partnerships, and even our finances! This aspect is active for 1-2 weeks before and after today, so there’s still plenty of time to utilize this energy if you haven’t done so yet!
Have a beautiful weekend everyone! Be sure to check back on Sunday for the weekday forecast. ☺
