The astrology forecast for the week of August 30, 2021 – September 5, 2021, features three aspects (Mars oppose Neptune, Mercury trine Saturn, and Venus square Pluto) and Mercury exiting Virgo and moving into Libra.
The aspects this week are a bit challenging starting on Tuesday through Friday, with the Moon triggering the upcoming Mars-Neptune opposition. Since Neptune can easily confuse matters, you may need to approach your emotional responses differently. Practicing behavior modification may be key to the energy this week.
After a reprieve on Friday and Saturday, trouble will brew again as Venus squares Pluto. Stay on guard!
Now, on with the forecast…
Monday, August 30, 2021
This week begins with Mercury moving out of his sign of Virgo and into Libra. Mercury’s sign change means you will now experience life through your interactions and exchanges with others, rather than through details and daily rituals. During Mercury’s trip through the sign of the scales, you will value the opinions of others, but be careful that you do not base your decisions entirely on their viewpoints. In addition, you can expect lively discussions and debates with your social circle, because these conversations give you inspiration and insight into your life.
Tuesday, August 31, 2021
The Moon moves through Gemini throughout the day and forms tricky aspects to Mars and Neptune. You may be influenced by the moods and attitudes of others, which could lead to disagreements and impulsive actions. Avoid becoming upset by minor annoyances and frustrations, because it’s just not worth it. Also, try to express your emotions mindfully.
Wednesday, September 1, 2021
The Moon enters emotional Cancer during the early morning hours and forms an onerous aspect to Mercury. Minor communication issues may occur, but they should pass relatively easily. This afternoon, the Moon sextiles the Sun, and positive news could unexpectedly arrive that brightens your day. While the Moon remains in Cancer (until Friday), familial issues may be a concern.
Thursday, September 2, 2021
The first aspect of the week occurs on Thursday when temperamental Mars opposes Neptune in Pisces. First, this is a low-energy aspect because Neptune dampens martial fire. Secondly, you may feel overwhelmed by the problems in your life, which could lead to distrusting others and your own decisions. Do not take anything at face value. Since Neptune has a loose affinity with the unfortunate twelfth house, problems from the past could come back to haunt you, especially if you have done anything underhanded or shady. Try not to be overwhelmed by past actions – there is nothing you can do about it, except move on and try to do better.
Friday, September 3, 2021
Until the afternoon hours, the Moon will be void, of course, in Cancer. Avoid starting anything new or making any firm agreements. On Friday afternoon, the Moon will shift into fiery Leo. It’s a fantastic day to do something that you love and enjoy.
Saturday, September 4, 2021
The bulk of the astrological energy occurs this weekend, starting with a trine between Mercury and Saturn. Your mind will focus on serious issues, and it’s a great time to do anything that requires mental precision. You will find that completing tasks will come easier today, because you will be in the proper mindset.
Sunday, September 5, 2021
The most challenging aspect of the week occurs on Sunday, as Venus forms a nasty square to Pluto in Capricorn. You will feel emotions more intensely than you normally would, which could be problematic. Relationships could suffer if your insecurities lead you to be needy or smothering. If you feel your relationship is changing and worry about the future, it’s best to go within and seek solutions that may prove helpful, rather than react in harmful ways.
See you next week!
