The Horoscope Coach Newsletter, Aug 15 – 31, 2018

Mercury and Mars both end their retrograde, we get back to school/work as  the Sun moves into busy Virgo, and we bask under the the moonbeams of the beautiful and spiritual Pisces Full Moon. Read on for the details…..Mercury Direct

Mercury Turns Direct in Leo Aug 19 until Sep 5 – Communications and Intellect
What did you work on during the retrograde? (Although it is hard to pinpoint with so many planets moving backward right now.) As Mercury begins to move forward in Leo you start to regain intellectual momentum, but remember the retrograde hangover lasts until Sep 2nd, so restrain the fire energy as best you can, and take your time as you get up, reverse direction, and step out into the world to start again.

If you had any big issues with communication, siblings, ghosts from the past, technology, travel plans, or transportation, then now is the time to implement solutions, clear up misunderstandings, buy new devices, move forward with contracts or negotiations, or make tweaks and shifts to the things you put in place over the past few weeks. As Mercury passes over the degrees of the eclipses on Aug 29th through the 31st, he will give you one final message about your eclipse story. Make sure you listen.

When Mercury is in Leo, you can use the energy to either purr like a kitten or roar like a lion! Conversations are warm, expressive, and a bit opinionated, however it is easier to get your point across without things getting too personal. This is a good time to tell others about your ideas and vision, because you are able to speak from your heart, be the authority or leader on a project or topic, and passionately promote yourself or toot your own horn with an authentic style.

This is one of the most fun and creative signs, so hold meetings in locations and settings that inspire others to play, explore ideas, show off, or hunt down a solution. Presentations should contain a bit of theatrics, drama, and/or sophistication, and storytelling and role playing is a great approach to communicating and engaging with individuals and groups.

There is a tendency for yourself and others to be overly sensitive to any direct criticism, ego energy runs high, and the ability to separate fact from fiction becomes blurred by the passion behind opinions, thoughts, and beliefs. You may want to hold off on performance reviews or constructive feedback and focus instead on praising the positive aspects in others to feed their egos and motivate performance.

Be conscious of over reacting to negative circumstances or causing this response in others, especially if you are idealistic by nature, however be courageous with your perspective while acknowledging others for theirs even if you don’t totally agree. You can iron out the details and be more of a critic when Mercury moves to Virgo on Sep 5th.​​​​​​​


Sun to Virgo Aug 23 until Sep 22 – Mission 
The Sun in Virgo gives you the opportunity to harness a practical, earthy, and hard working energy to get down to business in your life. The Sun shines a brighter light into the corners of the Virgo house in your chart to help you analyze what needs to stay and what needs to go, where you can be most productive, and where you can best serve yourself and others.

Watch for feelings of discontent or restlessness as well as any signals you get from your body such as nervousness or anxiety, to guide you toward what you need to work on. This is a great time to start a diet or health maintenance routine, especially those using purification techniques to eliminate toxins and chemicals.

Virgo is a sign that can accomplish big things in little ways, so push forward in this manner, and before you know it, you will be where you want to go.


Full Moon in Pisces

Full Moon in Pisces Aug 26 – Manifest
This Full Moon offers the opportunity to draw on your creativity, imagination, intuition, and day/night dreams to help you navigate the communication and action that is taking place as a result of the New Moon Eclipse in Leo two weeks ago.  In addition to recovering from the intense fire energy, focus on what you want to manifest in the Pisces area of your Natal Chart.

Music and meditation as well as being near water connects you to the energy of Pisces. If you plan a late summer trip to the beach, you can use the waves as a breathing exercise or meditation; breathe in as the waves hit the shore, and breathe out as they retreat as a way to calm yourself and release emotions as they surface.

This Full Moon can create a need to escape reality, or we only see what we want to see. Be careful with drugs (prescription and non-prescription), alcohol, or anything that allows you to superficially run away in unnatural or unhealthy ways.  To help counter these feelings, reach out and use beneficial relationships such as mentors, coaches, teachers, or sponsors to help you with any challenges.

With the Sun in productive and service oriented Virgo and the Moon in emotional and compassionate Pisces, you can balance the need to work hard with the need to find the spiritual connection to your work. You can take both a solid, logical, and grounded approach to fixing what needs to be physically mended as well as having compassion for those in need and a self-less connection to the greater good that allows for the emotional, less obvious spiritual healing to occur in the collective.

This balancing act is happening in your chart during the Full Moon, so take a moment to value, appreciate, and be grateful for the critical thinking, details and little steps that happen in the process of manifesting that in the end add up to creating the big vision for emotional and spiritual fulfillment in your life.


Mars Turns Direct in Capricorn Aug 27 until Sep 10 – Male Energy, Actions & Anger
What did you work on during the Mars retrograde? Did you notice any changes in your energy or actions? Did you take time to recharge your batteries and put some energy in reserve, because you may need it now that he begins to move direct. You may feel an energy surge and begin taking action on things you started but have not been able to finish. However, your energy may not feel totally back to normal until Mars clears his retrograde shadow on Oct 10th.

When Mars is in Capricorn he takes on the role of drill sergeant and actions become more direct, assertive, and determined.  If you have a difficult project to take on yourself or lead others through, then this is a good time to apply discipline and push forward.  Actions are linked with gaining control over yourself and the situations you are involved in, and doing something useful and productive is the goal.  In fact, having a realistic goal or target to aim at is essential to motivate yourself and influence your team to get in the game.

There is a heightened ability to recognize and use available resources, and strategic planning is a must, especially in more complex situations.  Be careful of being too hard on yourself or others, be sure expectations are set at an attainable level, and avoid feeling over-responsible for more than your fair share of the process, because this Mars can tend to be a work-aholic. Capricorn is highly productive Earth energy, so use it to your advantage to manifest something tangible in your life.
