Astrological Highlights  August 2, 2003


Today’s Wisdom Teaching is a brief outline of the astrological cycles for August. More detailed information on these cycles will come in the next teachings during the month of August. Enjoy!

New Moon/Full Moon Cycle

Monday, July 28th initiated our New Moon Cycle at 5 degrees of Leo. Monday August 11th is our Full Moon at 19 degrees of Aquarius. Check your chart or have an astrologer check to see where this cycle will be affecting you personally. This cycle is always our Plan and Power Cycle. The New Moon is a time to Plan and initiate a new program, idea or activity. The Full Moon is a Power time and a time for execution or completion of the projects or ideas initiated on the New Moon. 

Mars went Retrograde on Tuesday July 29th at 10 degrees Pisces. It will be retrograde until September 27th. That will be 2 months of Mars being retrograde.

It will remain in the sign of Pisces until December 16th. Mars in Pisces suggests that it is a time to promote more flow and ease into your life. Rest, relax and rejuvenate. Also, take a look at where in your life you are holding the most “unconsciousness” or attachment. I will be writing in more detail about this cycle this month.

Venus will move into Virgo on August 22nd. It will be there until September 15th. Service, teamwork, skills and clarity highlight the focus in all your relationships. Virgo is the sign of significance, perfection and the desire to express itself through service. Venus is the planet of relationship, balance and equalibrium. Taking care of yourhealth and relationships during this time could prove to be beneficial and rewarding.

Moon Wobble starts August 8th and will be exact on August 17th at 24 degrees Leo. Since this will be in a fixed sign, watch for the tendency toward inflexibility, especially if you have planets in Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. More information on Moon Wobbles can be found at: I will also be writing further on this cycle this month.

Mercury will go Retrograde on August 28th at 26 degrees Virgo. It will remain retrograde until September 20th. More information on this cycle can be found at:

Jupiter will end its year long stay in the sign of Leo on August 27th. It will move into Virgo and be there until October 2004. This is your time Virgos! Bring your philosophy of service, perfection and clarity to the forefront. Time to cleanse and purify an area of your life that has been waiting to be understood and deeply cleansed!!

Pluto will move direct on August 28th at 17 degrees Sagittarius ending its 5 month retrograde cycle. This is a profound release of Plutonian energy that can help you to move forward with some changes that you may have been contemplating for the past 5 months. Wherever Pluto is currently transiting in your astrological chart is where this movement forward will be.

“Quote For The Week”


One day you will with elation greet yourself 
arriving at your own door, in your own mirror. 
Each will smile at the other’s greeting 
Saying, “Sit here.” “Eat.”
You will love again the stranger
who was yourself.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart,
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you,
all your life, whom you ignored for another
who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf
the photographs, the desperate notes.
Peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.
