For the week beginning with the waxing Quarter Moon in Scorpio, August 7 - August 14th:
All the fiery Leo emphasis could be a bit much for you, watery Pisces, as the personal planets (Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars) gather in your 6th house of work and service, health, routine.
We begin the 2nd lunar quarter on Wednesday, August 7th, exact at 1:31 PM EDT. This quarter Moon asks you to take action on the seeds planted or ideas germinated at the Leo New Moon regarding your daily work or health routines. You might find that you need to make some adjustment in the area of religion, higher education, and travel so you can proceed with your course of action.
On Thursday, August 8th, Venus in your Leo 6th house forms a beautiful flowing exchange with your planetary ruler Jupiter in your Sagittarius 10th house of career, calling, or public life, suggesting that recognition for your service to others can expand your career or calling, perhaps leading to financial gain. The Moon enters Sagittarius about the same time, bringing emotional focus to your public life.
August 11th is a busy day among the planets as your ruler Jupiter turns direct, Mercury enters Leo, and Uranus turns retrograde.
Since April, retrograde Jupiter has been asking you to review your beliefs or your spiritual growth in the area of career, calling, or public life. He is almost stopped now at 14˚ Sagittarius and will begin to creep forward on August 11th. By then you should have a renewed sense of optimism and expansion in this area.
Also on August 11th, Mercury re-enters your Leo 6th house, picking up speed after his backward movement into Cancer. Mercury joins the Sun, Venus, and Mars in Leo, placing even more emphasis on this area. Mercury can help you gather your thoughts and put words to 6th house matters. Do you need to ask for more recognition for your service? Or for a raise at your job? Speak up! Now is the perfect time.
Uranus has been parked at 6˚ Taurus for weeks now and will turn retrograde on August 11th. You’ve been feeling his presence especially in your area of communication since May, and possibly last fall as well. Uranus is the planet of change and revolution. He often brings sudden and unexpected disruption. Think back to May of this year, and also to May through October of last year when Uranus was briefly in Taurus. What has changed for you regarding the way you communicate? The 3rd house also covers siblings. Have there been changes with your brothers or sisters?
On August 14th, Venus joins the Sun in your 6th house. Venus is on fire, the center of attention, and she wants you to be too. Ask for the recognition you deserve, and don’t forget to be generous in your praise of your co-workers.
