Astrological Almanac for Thursday, August 19, 2021
(All times Eastern)
The Sun’s opposition to Jupiter tonight dominates the day. We may find ourselves being pushed (or wanting) to grow in new ways; confronting or dealing with legal issues; feeling (overly?) optimistic about things; and in general, wanting to overdo just about everything. Enjoy the expansive feelings, but be careful not to over-commit yourself. This is especially felt by those with points at the end of the fixed signs (Leo, Aquarius, and to a lesser extent Scorpio and Taurus).
At the same time, Mercury trines Uranus – which goes from retrograde to direct tonight – in Earth signs. Mars is still quite close to Mercury also, though they are separating fast now. (Remember though that Mars will trine Uranus in a couple of days, so this aspect may feel extended.) For those with points in the middle of Virgo and Taurus, this could bring some lightning-like inspiration and real flashes of brilliance. We may have breakthroughs in thoughts, ideas, sales issues, learning, divination, etc., where we have felt stuck for a while.
During these day-long transits, the Moon contacts Neptune and joins Pluto, bringing a note of desired justice and a focus (for some) on issues of hierarchy, power structures, and inequality.
At 4:48 tomorrow morning, Luna enters Aquarius for the weekend. This could feel like things are a bit lighter and more social, but there are some more heavy-ish aspects coming the next couple of days, so it’s a busy time.
