Aug. 12-18 2013 Astrology Forecast: Breakthrough Time!

flying man - Aug. 12-18 2013 Astrology Forecast: Breakthrough Time!It’s breakthrough time as we hit the peak of a potent Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto T-square. You have abundant support in transcending limitations!

Be mindful of your communication as Mercury makes five aspects (most of them challenging). There’s also a touch of harmony as Venus enters Libra.

8/13 (Tue)

Leonine Mercury makes four aspects today and tomorrow, starting with a Mercury-Pluto quincunx. This aspect could lead to powerful and possibly dramatic misunderstandings. But it also supports the discovery of deep revelations, especially if you keep your thinking flexible. It can also encourage the sharing of important truths.

Mercury also opposes Juno today. This can focus thought on marriage, commitment and the renewal of love.

8/14 (Wed)

It’s easier to consciously receive your intuitive flashes right now. Mercury, representing rational mind, is trine Uranus, generator of instant divine guidance. Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury, so both their natural relationship and the easy-flowing trine suggest an easy joining.

Mercury quincunxes Chiron next. This suggests that the appropriate mental adjustment could facilitate mentoring and healing.

Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto T-Square Peaks

A potent T-square formed by Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto peaks today. This intense and challenging aspect pattern started on 7/20 and ends on 9/12.

Jupiter is powerfully amplifying the energy of revolutionary transformation being broadcast by the multi-year Uranus-Pluto square. Uranus and Pluto are also influencing Jupiter, calling for paradigm shifts in your beliefs, religious practices and philosophies. This could range from breakthroughs on your current path to a complete change in direction. I expect that many will experience spiritual awakening while this T-square is in force!

With Jupiter in Cancer, significant changes in family, security and nurturing are also possible.

8/16 (Fri)

Venus transits Libra, a sign that she rules, today through 9/11. During this time, support for relationships, creativity, harmony, balance and sociability is strengthened.

Inspiration and support for “strutting your stuff,” leadership and “chillaxing” comes courtesy of the Leonine Sun quintile Saturn.

8/17 (Sat)

You may get a boost to your self-esteem, and perhaps even your prosperity, as the Sun and Ceres conjoin in Leo.

8/18 (Sun)

How can you bring more attention to the cause that you’re devoted to? It’s an excellent time to ponder this as Mercury and Vesta come together in Leo.

Void-of-Course Moons

It’s best to avoid starting important new projects or making major purchases during void-of-course Moons. “Business as usual” is the optimal strategy. Void-of-course Moons occur when the Moon has made her last major Ptolemaic aspect, but has not yet moved into her next sign.

8/14, 5:30 pm – 9:06 pm (Sagittarius)
8/16, 1:33 pm – 11:27 pm (Capricorn)
8/18, 2:26 pm – 8/19, 12:08 am (Aquarius)

Whatever your Sun Sign, Benjamin’s forecasts can help you make the best use of the current astrological energies.

All dates and times are in the U.S. eastern time zone. Events are most powerful on the dates listed, but their influence will be active for at least several days before and after.

Everyone is affected by these global transits. However, you will be most powerfully impacted when moving planets activate sensitive points in your natal chart.
