The Weekly Planets and Stars – August 13-19, 2012

This week has some trying and conflicting energy.   Holding back a little and having patience will get you through.  With so much happening in Cardinal signs this week (Aries, Cancer, Capricorn and Libra are Cardinal signs) the mood is impatient and anxious, but the planets involved and their placement to one another is urging us to resist that Cardinal energy at least as the week begins.

On Tuesday Mars and Saturn solidify their conjunction – You can still see them both in the western sky at twilight.  If you notice another bright star there too, that’s Spica – a piece of corn held in the hand of Virgo, the Harvest Goddess.  A perfect moment when astrology, astronomy and ancient lore all come together.

Carefully travelling through the areas of love and money will be key this week as sensitive Cancer, the current host to Venus, runs into a few squares and oppositions that will test your resolve.  Hang in there though because towards the end of the week things start looking up – thanks in part to the New Moon energy on Thursday.  New Moons can signal new beginnings and new opportunities and also new ways to approach old problems.
