August 29 – September 4, 2012

stargazerFor All Signs:  On the 31st we will experience what is known as a "blue moon."  The blue moon occurs approximately every 2.5 years, when a second full moon shines in a single month.  It happens when the first full moon is early in the month and the last full moon is four weeks later, still within the same month.  The expression "once in a blue moon" is used colloquially to mean not very often or rarely.  This has been part of the English language at least since the time of Shakespeare.  The moon does not actually change color for a "blue moon," although it occasionally appears to change color due to dust particles in our atmosphere. 

Aries:  This is a week in which you can make progress on negotiations with the powers that be.  It is also favorable for investments, income that you share with others, and debts owed to you.  Stay within the confines of “tradition” for best results.  Outrageous ideas will probably not fly.

Taurus:  You may be taking a sober look at one or more relationships.  Even the very closest friends cannot know each other from the inside.  Sometimes we forget this fact and need to become aware that we are actually separate beings, helping when we can.  Sometimes our energy is too low to be there for one another.

Gemini:  You are moving quickly this week.  On the weekend your focus shifts to matters of home, hearth, and family.  There may be a conflict between family and partner for your attention.  On Mon. And Tues., the input overload from the week may turn your brain to fuzz.  Give yourself a rest.

Cancer:   Your heart and mind may be in conflict over just how to proceed with your next projects.  This is a good time to reorganize drawers, closets, or maybe your desk.  The act of putting clutter into order will clear your mind and then the right solution is likely to surface.

Leo:  This week brings more than one opportunity to attend to the mental or physical health of another.  At the same time you want to maintain your good personal habits.  Financial concerns require some focus and attention.  You may be asked to handle money for someone else in your life.

Virgo the Virgin: (Aug 22--Sep 22)  This is a particularly complicated week.  Your calendar must be booked to the limit.  Your mind is leaning toward the creative throughout this period.  Meanwhile, on the weekend your mind may move into fuzz mode, due to too much input.  Give yourself a mental break.

Libra:   Don't allow fear and pessimism to interfere with your pleasure in life.  If something is nagging at you, take a clear and direct look at it.  Is there really anything there, or have you invented your own worry?  This may be a week of multiple demands in your career.  Take your time and concentrate on what must be done.  This won’t last long.

Scorpio:  You are unusually comfortable in your own skin this week.  Activities involving neighbors, roommates, education or travel are all favored.  You have a sense of physical strength at this time that will be especially beneficial if you are exercising or in any type of competition.

Sagittarius:  The Archers always prefer to see the big picture.  However, at this time you are encountering the “devil in the details”.  Your inspiration is moving far and wide, but the problem is in just how to get from A to Z.  Or perhaps you know how, but are hoping someone else will take on this problem and resolve it for you.

Capricorn:  There are green lights and good news in any of the following areas:  legal interests, education, publishing, travel by long distance and also the Internet, and participation in your place of worship.  Put the Critic out of your mind, whether he is judging inwardly or pointing at someone else.  He exaggerates well beyond the truth.

Aquarius:  You began a creative project in the areas of education, the law, or writing/publishing in October of 2011.  The result of that effort is now apparent to you.  It is probable you have used it in more ways than you initially thought.  There may not be marching bands, bells and whistles, but it is a satisfying accomplishment.

Pisces:  Make a special effort to keep up with keys, tickets, and other small items.  Your feelings are easily injured right now.  On the other hand, you may be the offender, hurting someone else.  Try to stay on the planet and think carefully before you speak.  If you feel "hurt", don't leap to a conclusion before you ask what the meaning is of a behavior or a comment.
