Your Weekly Astrology Overview: August 12-18, 2019
We are heading into the second week of August with a flurry of renewed energy and excitement. The last of the eclipse cycle is finally out of our system, and now we must simply cope with the changes (or embrace them, depending on how you look at life). We are hoping that you have found the place to embrace them, even if the changes are permanent. Now is the call of karma, as we head into this week, and consider wrapping up some old business and finishing up some cycles.
We are going to get some help with closing up some chapters this week under Thursday’s Full Moon in Aquarius. As this Moon is not arriving until Thursday, that means that we have almost the full week as a Full Moon week. The Full Moon zone will begin on Tuesday and wrap up on Saturday’s Pisces Moon.
So you have the whole week almost to make your Full Moon wishes. Word them around bringing issues to completion and seeing life matters come full circle. When you do, you are making room on your plate for more excitement. Under the Full Moon in the Fixed sign Aquarius, thinking of out of the box solutions is favored. The more unique your plan, the more likely you will have a sweet follow-through rate.
By the end of the week, we have impassioned Mars working in the Mutable sign of the Earth signs, Virgo. This is not a place where Mars thrives, as Mars is quick to the jump and Virgo is… well, not. Virgo carefully considers everything before making a final decision.

So Mars in Virgo is somewhat opposite energy. But the good news is that this means you will have more time to follow through on those impassioned ideas Mars is sending your way. And you have until October to use this energy with the flawless attention to detail that Virgo requires.
Stay in tune to your Daily Horoscopes along with our regular blog features, and you will be primed for success. Have a blessed week, friends!
