Weekly General Horoscopes (Updates on Monday) - 12 August 2019
This is a stunning week for several reasons but it is also a week that, by the end of the week will show signs of stunning changes ahead. The week begins with Jupiter turning direct in an adventurous part of your chart, Uranus turning retrograde in your income sector and Mercury returning into a playful part of your chart, with stunning consequences. Mercury will return on Monday to find the Sun, Venus and Mars already here, putting all the faster moving planets in the same place, at the same time for the first time since October 2017. This will remain the case until Mars leaves and returns to your busy work sector over the weekend, followed by the Sun and Venus next week and Mercury the week after. So while there is a strong focus on all things fun, playful, romantic and creative this week, this is something that needs to be seized, with life about to become a lot busier.
Within the space of just a few hours, Jupiter is turning direct and Uranus is turning retrograde and the impact from this is changing the dynamics of the year itself. While turning retrograde in Taurus on Monday means that Uranus will turn your personal focus onto the rear view mirror, he is not a planet that influences the pace of day to day life. Jupiter on the other hand, as the largest and most powerful planet in the solar system influences everything, with his direct turn releasing the brakes and turning the lights green across the board. More specifically this will give money matters the green light, with financial growth that was put on hold in order to spend time back at the drawing board, now back on again. In the meantime, there is a lot of focus on home and family matters this week, with signs of something new developing on the fun, playful, romantic and creative fronts over the weekend.
The major events just as we are moving into the new week are changing the dynamics but a series of coincidences make the timing extremely auspicious. The most obvious example of this is Mercury, the planet of communication's return to your communication sector on Monday, just hours after Jupiter's direct turn in your relationship sector. Just as the tide turns on the relationship front, Mercury will join an already formidable team of planets to ensure the communication lines are open from the get go. Mercury's return to your communication sector will also put all the faster planets together, in the same place at the same time, for the first time since 2017. This creates a lot of concentrated energy in a smart, intellectually savvy and articulate part of your chart, creating a vibrant and interconnected week. In the meantime, an adventurous Full Moon midweek is a welcome chance to put life into perspective.
Mercury's departure from Cancer in the early hours of the week is set to have implications for where he is leaving and where he is moving. Mercury's departure from Cancer will bring the mechanics of getting this new solar year up to speed to a close, but in the process will take the pressure off both you and your relationships. By the time Mars returns to your communication sector over the weekend, there will be a chance to completely turn things around. In the meantime, Mercury returns to your income sector just hours after Jupiter's direct turn on the job front, with implications across the income, work and career fronts. Until Mars leaves your income sector over the weekend, all the faster moving planets will not only be focused on moving income matters forward but in partnership with Jupiter on the job front and Eris, who is having an extremely good week in your career sector.
To start the week with the Moon in your work sector will not only give you an intuitive read on work and job matters from the get go but at an important point in this professional year. With Uranus turning retrograde in your career sector while the Moon is still there, this will ensure you have your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground as the tide turns on the career front. With both planets in your work sector also in retrograde motion, this puts all planets in both professional houses in review mode. Yet with the most lucrative months of 2019 beginning with Mars' return to your income sector over the weekend, this is also a chance to step back professionally, as it becomes more about the money. In the meantime, the last full week of your birthday month is extraordinarily empowered, especially when you are following your heart or your passions.
It is no accident or irony that just before new doors are set to open the wind is being taken out of your sails, with time out to hear yourself think critical. It is Mercury, your ruling planet's return to a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart in the early hours of the week that might finally achieve what the planets already here haven't so far, which is to get you to slow down. The last full week of your old solar year requires time to reflect but in the final days of a two year Mars cycle, to also make time to recharge your batteries. This is all preparation for Mars' return to Virgo over the weekend and the Sun and Venus next week. New doors are opening and there are exciting developments ahead. However, first there is a very real need to spend at least part of each day in life's slow lane. Starting the week with playful lunar vibes should help with that, though a Full Moon could see things become busy, especially on the work front midweek.
This is likely to be a busy week in terms of your human connections, with a lot of different factors coming together at the right time. It isn't just that Jupiter's direct turn in your communication sector as the week begins is alone responsible for this. However, this will ensure that the communication lines do operate more smoothly, just as you move into what was always going to be a good week for personal and professional networking, friendship and relationship building. It is a case of planets being in the right place at the right time. Yet with Mars returning to a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart over the weekend to begin the wind down of a two year Mars cycle and the month long wind down of your old solar year next week, change is in the air. It could be that by the end of the week you are ready to start putting out the 'do not disturb' sign.
Three separate events come together to create a stunning week across the income, work and career fronts or at the very least an important turning point. Before the week even begins there are partnerships forming between the planets moving forward through your career sector and Eris, in retrograde motion in your work sector. This will continue throughout the week and the Sun and Venus, who will align in your career sector midweek, will both be at the same friendly aspect by the weekend. Yet it is Jupiter's direct turn in your income sector and Mercury's return to your career sector in the early hours of the week that gives everything the green light. Yet in between Jupiter's direct turn and Mercury's arrival, Uranus will turn retrograde in your relationship sector, with the focus their shifting to the past. This makes starting the week with the Moon in your communication sector a case of very good timing.
Starting the week with the Moon in your income sector is always an advantage, though it is very nearly a mixed blessing. Mercury's departure from your financial sector on Monday narrowly avoids an opposition with the Moon, avoiding the financial tension this has created over recent months. Instead, while Mercury leaves you with a smart head for money, the Moon is able to move through your income sector unhindered, sharpening your nose for money as Uranus turns retrograde in your work sector on Monday. This will slow things down and with it a chance to catch your breath, though this is not the case for long. As the only planet in either of your two professional houses, with Uranus at a standstill and now in retrograde motion, this puts the brakes on your professional year. However, with Mars returning to your career sector over the weekend and the Sun and Venus returning next week, a new professional wave is literally just days away.
By the skin of its teeth, the Moon manages to make its first visit to Capricorn without moving into opposition with planets on the other side of the sky and the timing couldn't be better. Since Mars' return to your relationship sector in May, the Moon's monthly visits have created a clash between your personal and relationship needs. The most intense clash was the one that created last month's lunar eclipse, which the Moon came full circle from over the weekend. While Mercury was still in your relationship sector when the Moon returned, he will leave in the early hours of the week, before they can clash. Instead, this near miss comes with the planet of communication's ability to still ensure the communication lines are open. This is a chance to witness first hand your entry into the other side of the most challenging months of 2019. This comes as playful and adventurous influences demand their turn.
In terms of the sheer number of planets involved, the main focus this week is on your relationships, which in turn is drawing in developments on the friendship and communication fronts. As we move into the new week Jupiter is already in the process of turning direct in your friendship sector and this is going to give all aspects of your social life the green light. This comes just as Eris, in retrograde motion in your communication sector is having an extremely good week. Yet it is Mercury, the planet of communication's return to your relationship sector on Monday that not only adds to both the communication and relationship support but creates a unique situation. With the Sun, Venus and Mars already here, this puts all the faster moving planets in the same place, at the same time, for the first time since October 2017. This creates an auspicious week for communication, friendship and relationship building. Yet a Full Moon in Aquarius midweek will ensure your own needs aren't forgotten.
While Mercury's departure from a playful part of your chart and return to your busy work sector on Monday might make it harder to maintain a balance between work and play, this isn't the case for long. Mercury returns just hours after Jupiter's direct turn in your career sector, giving both job and career matters the green light. Mercury will return to find the Sun, Venus and Mars already here, putting the faster moving planets together, in the same place at the same time, for the first time since October 2017. That this should happen just hours after this line up begins is auspicious enough, but it comes just as those planets moving through your work sector are forming positive aspects to Eris in your income sector. This creates a stunning week across the income, work and career fronts and represents a real turnaround. Things do get busy this week but it is a push to get things up to speed. By the end of the week, Mars will already be turning his focus onto your relationships.
