Whitney's Whirl - Your Horoscope for August 17-23, 2009
by Whitney McClough
This week heralds a New Moon at 27 Leo. So use Thursday to sit with your ideas, and write down what you truly desire. As Leo brings in courage, creativity, and boldness, your ideas should simply shout about your talents.
Mars in Gemini ushers in a whirlwind of activity, and we can best tap into that by allowing it to take our dreams and goals and push for them by advertising. Serious mind set this week will also allow us to push for our goals by perhaps an ad on TV or a new brochure or business card. Whatever you do, broadcast widely, as the New Moon in Leo will assist you.
Venus Trines Uranus in Pisces this week, so for those of you who are creative, you will feel the energy building, and pushing you to use it perhaps in numerous ways. While Gemini is the written word, you can create with a diverse pattern this week. You should also pay attention to any numbers that linger in your mind, as this is an easy time to win the lottery for someone, why not you?
With Mars in Gemini Square to Uranus in Pisces, we will want to be very this week, to not drink and drive, or have so many ideas or projects going on that we simply cannot keep up, hence an accident. With wisdom, no accident needs to happen, but you have to keep your wits about you, and pay attention.
ARIES: The New Moon hilights your 5th house of love, play, and gambling, so choose some lottery or scratch tickets, and wait to hear the good news! With Mars in Gemini in your 3rd house sextile the New Moon on Thursday, your ideas will meet with support, and your creativity will bolster a higher realm of creativity. With Venus in the 4th trine Uranus in the 12th..someone from the past could pay a surprise visit.
TAURUS: The New Moon highlights your 4th house of home and foundations. And, with Venus in Cancer, which rules the home and family, you could certainly have a new addition to your family, human or otherwise. You might find you have a desire to be creative. An unusual message comes to you from someone who loves you, which catches you by surprise!
GEMINI: Mercury is conjunct Saturn in Virgo in 6th, which brings an industrious mindset. The New Moon falls in your 5th house of love, gambling and play, which offsets the intense note of perfectionism at the beginning of the week. Balance the week with some of each, but with Venus Sextile Saturn and Mercury the message is geared towards an unexpected windfall, and perhaps a new work situation.
CANCER: Sweet Venus is in your first house, gracing your life, and you with an unexpected vacation, and it gets better because the New Moon is in your 2nd house. Those sparkling ideas that have been floating through your mind will serve you well. There is a new position for you that pays well, or you are creating it yourself. The energies run high, fast and strong, and put you where you want to be.
LEO: The New Moon falls in your 1st house of self expression, full of light and creating, leadership and drive. This week is going to be very powerful as you place yourself in the role of your life! Unexpected money arrives from someone else's bank account, putting you further in the black. Careful and detailed plans will help you stabilize.
VIRGO: An incredibly serious note, and an analytical connection with a friend, will easily support your career goals this week. Mars in Gemini in your 10th house says too much is going on at work, and definitely rocking your world! The Eclipse Point stirs your 12th house, so news may came to you that your job will change, or end. Your job is to stay calm, and now that some unseen blessings are about to be revealed job wise.
LIBRA: Watch for opportunities this week, both career wise, and those involving your biggest dreams; perhaps those wrapped around helping mankind or having to do with children or family. If wishes were horses, this week you ride! In depth conversations and specifics regarding your public standing will show you as a revolutionary independent thinker, and quite able to support those at the top who are watching you.
SCORPIO: Self-empowerment stems from what you say this week Scorpio, and who you know. With a Quincunx between Mars and Pluto, your two ruling planets, your drive and ability to transform your life are terse, yet far reaching. The New Moon falls in your 10th house of career, and builds into a serious contemplation of ideas, meetings, and discipline. There is a vacation promise in this week, somewhere.
SAGITTARIUS: Jupiter, your ruler, is conjunct spiritual Neptune, helping you to create a written speciality this week. With the New Moon in LEO, and in your 9th house, some legal issues, perhaps making sure your work is copy written will take care of your future. A disruption in a relationship could be edgy, but you know, sweet Venus is pulling you in a new direction, so don't lollygag, but dive off the board of life into someone new and waiting. I see some words that mean something to you on paper...make a song, others will share it.
PISCES: Uranus in Pisces is Quincunx the New Moon in your 6th. This energy will develop into a new line of work, changes in health and some divine inspiration as well. These will require some adjustments. A lottery win could certainly rocket you into a new world. A conversation with someone older and wiser will help support big changes and dreams. An incredibly interesting week full of joy and change.
AQUARIUS: Start a new business? YES! And, when a golden opportunity presents itself either through a business partner or a life partner, jump on it. This kind of opportunity doesn't happen often, so he who lingers does not get the gold ring!. Creditors; however, may need a detailed plan, which is easily agreed to with the upcoming financial blessings. Do not focus on what you don't have, but remember, Ask and it is Given, and focus on the outcome.
CAPRICORN: You will bear witness to some serious legal maneuverings this week, and while you negotiate your finances, your friends bless, and support you. This may work out better then you realize with a new financial picture stemming from a meeting and clear maneuvering on future endeavors. Think creatively, and your bills will be paid!
