Weekly Astrology for August 14, 2017
More than any other astrological interpretation, the event of a total solar eclipse is a marvel of nature and the cosmos. Our relatively tiny neighboring Moon is just roughly 250,000 miles away, while the Sun shines brightly on us from over 92 million miles away. And yet, the “tiny” Moon glides into a position that allows it to completely obscure the light of the Sun as it crosses between the Sun and the Earth, thus causing a period of complete blackout also known as totality. The sheer geometrical construct of such an event is truly proof that the universe has a sense of underlying mathematical precision and logic. This event has to give us all pause as to the wonders of this grand design we call our planet and our celestial neighborhood. This particular eclipse will move across the face of the center of the United States and allow a swath of about 70 miles wide to be in complete totality. This means that in the direct path of the eclipse the Sun will gradually disappear as the Moon shifts into position to obscure the light of the Sun.
ARIES (March 21- April 19) The Sun conjoins with your ruling planet, Mars, as the eclipse occurs. You may be especially motivated to engage with children and your creative well spring during this period. This rare event may trigger an impulse that allows you the insight to do something quite different artistically than you have in the past.
TAURUS (April 20 -May 20) As your world evolves this week you may witness a heightened interest in family and domestic matters. As is true with all eclipses they tend to shine a light on a part of your life. In your case, family, topics related to your living situation and you immediate family may be in much clearer focus.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)This should be an excellent time for turning to research, especially if the end-result can benefit someone close to you, such as a sibling. The challenge in such a negotiation is that you may place an undue strain on other relationships that are equally important to you. The secret is to find the right balance and accommodate both.
CANCER (June 22-July 22) Your daily routine may be what pushes you to seek new forms of income. As the challenge to keep yourself on an even keel becomes more demanding and obstacle-laden you have the motivation to break out and find a new source of money. Fortunately your efforts are likely to be rewarded.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Much of the power of the cosmos rests on the shoulders of you this week, Leo. The Sun, Mars, and the Moon all reside in your sign and the eclipse happens under your purview as well. With so much concentrated energy at your request you would do well to find the right outlet for your ideas.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Prepare to shift directions as the week unfolds. You may be privy to new information that allows you to pivot to a new role. As you mull over your options you may be in for a wonderful gust of optimism and possibility as you face a new path. Change has its challenges but the rewards usually follow.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You may be discovering new information that involves business partners this week. What may have been obvious to others may now suddenly make sense to you. This can be a bit off-putting, but you may also be able to find the right and balanced method for addressing this. Your primary partner may surprise you with an idea.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov 21) What are you pursuing regarding your career this week? With plenty of action and your ruling planet, Mars clustered in and around your occupation, you may be on the move. You might be actively seeking new employment or it might be looking for you in the form of head-hunters. Update that resume.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You love to travel and explore anything new and different and this week may allow you a spectacular opportunity to do just that. With so much clustered activity in this area of your life you might be unstoppable in this pursuit. Responsibilities may loom large but the rewards are equally present.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You may be particularly motivated to improve your connections with large organizations. Universities, government municipalities and the like are all up for your consideration this week. As the weight of responsibility bears down you may find that the best way forward is to investigate all expansive options thoroughly. Do the right thing and pursue engagement.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Expect to spend some time working out details with close friends and business associates. While some hard work may be involved the end-result may well be worth it in the long run. You may find the dialog shifts between you and that may prove to be a step in the right direction.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You may be entertaining a new health regimen this week and the universe may be prodding you in this direction. With such a concentration of energy and the solar eclipse you may become enlightened in a very positive and productive manner. Great time for starting a dialog in this area of your life.
