Pursue Your Passion as Venus and Saturn Connect!
When Venus, the planet of love and beauty, meets the cosmic taskmaster of Saturn in the dark waters of Scorpio this Wednesday, you'll be summoned to pursue your passion in a way that's reflected by the amount of time you devote to it. You'll also be given the opportunity to wed time and resources spent with what you love most. Are you ready to commit to your own depths, refusing to settle for a life less than the one you're capable of living?
On a darker note, this merger between Venus and Saturn in Scorpio could also reveal deep wounds embedded at the karmic bone level, where you've perhaps felt unwanted in the past. It's worth noting that a huge abandonment complex is often revealed when these two planets lock arms in Scorpio. Can you give yourself permission to reclaim your passionate fire by not wasting time or energy on anything that takes you away from what you want most? It's time to heal these wounds as you ask yourself what could regenerate your creativity and life-force in a

Harvest Full Moon in Pisces: Soulful RetreatRead More »from Harvest Full Moon in Pisces: Soulful Retreat
After weeks of focusing on work, work, and more work, this Thursday's harvest full Moon in Pisces reminds you of the importance of escapism and soulful retreat. If you've been a busy little Virgo bee overwhelmed by to-do lists, projects, and detox protocols, the opposite polarity of Pisces kicks in later this week to get you back into the big picture -- where magic and mysticism reside!
The traditional ruler of Pisces, Jupiter, is now halfway through the constellation of Cancer, where it's emphasizing home, family, and a general mood of nostalgia. The question now is: What nurtures your soul? If you're prone to workaholic tendencies, the strong polarity of Pisces will reveal these addictive tendencies, while the shadows will ask you to examine what you're hiding from. In other words, how do you use work to hide from the deeper creatures crawling up from the depths within yourself?

Before electric lights were invented, the increasing or decreasing light of the Moon set the rhythm for human activity. When the Moon was full and bright, nights were active, festive, and social. As the Moon decreased and the night plunged into shadow, people pulled back and planned ahead.
If you'd like to flow with the Moon's natural rhythm in your own life, mark these special Moon times on your calendar and consider them when planning your monthly activities.
Start by celebrating your accomplishments during the full Moon. Full Moons welcome relaxation and socializing, so reward yourself for work well done with a special feast, time at the spa, or simply a relaxing bath. The full Moon's bright light illuminates the sky a few days before and after the full Moon, so make the party last! (The next full Moon occurs on September 19 in the sign of Pisces.)

Fire signs: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
You're competitive and you love a good challenge, so if you get together with family members or work colleagues about who can recycle the most, you'll be more likely to get involved. Fire signs thrive on new initiatives, so your challenge will be to maintain interest after your initial enthusiasm dies down. Keep things simple to make it easy. Set up recycling boxes around the house and create challenges with your kids about who can collect the most waste to recycle. Get creative and offer rewards for family members who actively participate.

Once every three years or so, we see two full Moons in a row in the same sign; in fact, the last time we had two consecutive full Moons in the sign of Aquarius was August 1983. With this month's second full Moon occurring in Aquarius on Tuesday, August 20, it's round two of the contest to remain emotionally objective in all situations. Do all you can to take the high road!
During full Moons, the tides of emotion and passion are at their peak. However, Aquarian Moons aren't known for unbounded emotional displays. Instead, they prefer a more cautious and reserved approach to self-expression.
