The Story So Far

As August Opens. Five planets are currently retrograde: Mercury thru 8/8 at 1:40 AM, Pluto thru 9/17, Neptune thru 11/11, Chiron thru 11/14, and Uranus thru 12/13. The pervasive energies of revolutionary transformation (a Uranus-Pluto square), as well as universal love, compassion and spiritual awakening (Neptune in Pisces), will be active for years to come!

Void-of-course Moons

It’s best to avoid starting important new projects or making major purchases during these times. “Business as usual” is the best strategy for these periods, which occur when the Moon has made its last major Ptolemaic aspect but has not yet moved into the next sign.
