Week Commencing Friday, August 6th

We have a very dynamic energy pattern in the skies of which we haven't seen for many years and will not see again for another 500 or so.  It's called a Cardinal Cross - planets in opposition to one another and squaring one another.  The visual could be compared to each of your limbs being pulled in different directions.  The purpose of this tension could be creatively labeled "Harmony Through Conflict," as human beings tend not to make major changes unless it is absolutely necessary.  If you feel the pressure to make significant change than do try to go with the flow.  In Star Trek speak "Resistance is Futile."  This is a fast, powerful and potent energy that is affecting us at the global levels as well as the personal levels.  Events can run the gambit from extremely favorable to extremely unfavorable.

But, this pressure is very, very useful and can ferret out the weak links.  It can be make it or break time in your relationships, work, family, living situations and financial conditions.   A time for tension and then ultimately resolution.  Remember the truism that whenever one door closes another door does open.

The Moon starts anew in dramatic and fiery Leo this Monday.  New moons are a time to recharge goals or set new ones.  Venus has just left analytical Virgo and moved into charming and relationship oriented Libra.  A time to build upon current alliances and develop new ones.

ARIES:   The Cardinal Cross "pull" is between independence, partnership, work and home.  Career may be demanding but emotionally you feel the need to place your attention with home and family.  The "others" in your life may feel inflexible and rigid at the moment.  You, on the other hand, are ready to initiate and make things happen.  Expect a lot of spice and activity within your partnerships, Venus is on the move and demanding attention. Which way to go?  Partnerships are the area of growth and transformation. The New Moon falls in your 5th house of pleasure, love, children and creative endeavors.

TAURUS:  Your ruler Venus is very active this week.  She has just moved into her co-ruled sign Libra in your area of work and health where she is bumping into Uranus (surprises), Saturn (responsibility) and then Mars (energy and ego).  Expect an eventful week!  The Cardinal Cross affects your psychological well being vs. work, and your day to day correspondence vs. sales, long-distance correspondence and marketing.  Work is the area of lessons and growth - how you work, interact with co-workers and maintain your health.  The New Moon gives fresh energy to home and hearth.

GEMINI:  Get your important correspondence, deals and purchases handled this week.  Next week your ruling planet moves retrograde - a time when you won't be able to make quick advances.  The Cardinal Cross is applying tension and choice to the areas concerning friendships and social activities vs. love, self-expression and creativity.  Saturn has now entered your 5th house of children and love, and is asking you to be more accountable in how you play, love and raise children.  The other areas of "pull" are in the areas of finance and intimacy.  This time period is intended to transform "how" you interact with intimate others and to develop a stronger self-esteem.  You can't give to others what you don't have for yourself.  The Moon is new in the area of communication, neighbors, siblings and automobiles.

CANCER:  You are the moon child Cancer and hence are more sensitive to the monthly moon cycles.  Fresh moon energy is available to you in earning potential and self-esteem.  There is tension surrounding your needs and what other people expect from you.  Others may feel more powerful and important at the moment but this is merely perception.  Home is carrying some extra responsibility - your house, parents, family and sense of security may feel a little fragile now yest this is the very area of worthwhile growth and positive lessons - a maturing time.  Career and life direction are being infused with expansion and a touch of genius.

LEO:  Your own personal New Moon takes place this Monday in your sign.  Set personal goals for yourself and embrace your uniqueness.  Venus, Saturn and Mars are lighting up your house of siblings, how you communicate and transportation.  This is the area to concentrate on over the next two years - enormous growth and maturity reside here.  Yet the urge to get away from it all is strong with Uranus and Jupiter bringing excitement and growth around travel and foreign climates.  Powerful change is occurring on the work front yet all you really want is some peace and quiet.

VIRGO:  Get important business handled this week before you start to lose steam when your ruling planet Mercury moves into backward motion.  The New Moon indicates that  rest and relaxation is strongly needed - take some vacation time if at all possible.  The Cardinal Cross is affecting earned income (things may feel tight right now), loans, debt and responsibilities to significant others.  Over the next two years you will learn to work smarter and to grow your nest egg.  Tension is also shown between your future goals, friendships and associations vs. "doing your own thing," children and personal creative projects.  Pluto has his sights on tearing down and rebuilding these very things.

LIBRA:  Prepare for an active week with your ruling planet Venus making full body contact with Uranus, Saturn and Mars.  Sit back and say, "hmm, that was interesting."  The party is in your sign with Mars, Saturn and Venus (who just took up residence on the 6th) providing plenty of action and change.  Tensions can be felt between your personal identity vs. partnerships.  Add to the mix pressures from your home, parents and living situation vs. your career and reputation.  Push me pull you.  You are just entering into a two year period where your personal identity, self-expression and physical looks will be solidified, honed and concentrated.  The new moon indicates positive energy within friendships and social affairs.

SCORPIO:  You are tired - no doubt about it.  You are entering a two year time period in which you need more rest and quiet time.  Honor that need whenever possible.  Yet, work continues to poke it's demanding finger in your direction.  Expanding, positive and surprising events are taking place in the work sphere and they do require your attention.  What to do?  Add to that some pressure and a few transformative energies that are taking place in the "way" you communicate that seemingly appear to be at odds with publishing tasks, marketing and possibly even sales (don't worry this perception will fade).  If there is a person at a distance or someone of foreign birth that is applying additional pressure the answer is to "go within" and heed your own council.  The New Moon suggests that career is your saving grace for the next month.

SAGITTARIUS:  Your ruling planet Jupiter is still cuddling with the awakener Uranus which translates into expanding and surprising events within your love life, creativity and with your children.  Yet, Saturn is glowering from your 11th house of friendships and associations and his whispers are demanding more attention and responsibility surrounding friendships and the groups you belong to.  Blow them off at your own peril.  Additionally, your sense of self  and potential earning potential are just beginning a deep and transforming process that will forever change how you value self.  Emotionally you want to lose yourself in others resources and support.  The New Moon may see you traveling, writing and/or teaching.  Marketing may be in the mix as well.

CAPRICORN:  Are you feeling the heat?  You are a cardinal sign and the Cross is applying pressure to some very important areas in your chart.  You are exerting a powerful influence in your world now - a heavy duty decade lies ahead.  Tension from your partner is taking the form of emotions that ask "where are you," and "what about me?"  The areas of home and family are interesting, exciting and expansive right now...BUT, Saturn (your ruling sign) demands your attention and commitment regarding career and life direction.  The New Moon places energized resources at your doorstep from an important other or organization.

AQUARIUS:  Things are interesting aren't they?  And you, more than most really like "interesting."  You are the Mr. Spock of the zodiac and you've enjoyed some expansive scenarios regarding state of mind, uplifting conversations and perhaps even some new wheels?  Yet responsibilities call from afar and someone needs your assistance.  You need to get serious about marketing yourself and your skills.  Your spiritual life is demanding transformation and due diligence while work has your emotional attention.  The New Moon falls in your partnership sign so expect significant others to provide you with plenty of energy and support.

PISCES:  The wind is at your back for partnership talks but the energy quickly fades come mid-month.  In fact, this will be a time for revisiting important communications with others.  Your self-esteem, ideas and opportunities for making money have been awakened and revitalized.  It may feel like your partner is the "wet blanket" in this mix but not so.  They are applying a wise and steadying hand to the situation.  Over the next two years Saturn may be increasing your fears regarding authentic intimacy and relating but this is where the gold lies and your attention is required to move through the fear.  Meanwhile, Pluto is affecting your friendships and goals (a long-term process) and you are meeting powerful individuals who are exerting a strong influence.  Emotionally you want to keep things light and devil may care.  The New Moon asks that you allow yourself some downtime, reflection and rest.

Every individual horoscope is highly unique based on time of birth, place of birth and birth date.  To schedule your very own session with Jean and to learn more about your basic personality - talents, gifts and challenges, as well as the energy patterns you will be experiencing for the next 12 months email her at jean@jeanwiley.com or visit her website at www.jeanwiley.com
