Horoscope for the Week:  August 6, 2021


Tip of the Week:

The Leo New Moon occurs on August 8 and it is a powerful one. Eclipses are not the only powerful Moon events and the so-called ‘Super Moons’ would rank as the mirage that they are compared to the understanding of what constitutes a truly powerful New Moon. Understanding when such a powerful cycle will occur is where actual astrology comes to the fore. The exact degree of this New Moon will produce a tower-toppling effect wherever false witness and lies have attempted to build edifices of power out of sticks and straw. This is not to say that the forces activated will not confront opposition. Yet, this marks a decisive time, a turning and an emergence of collectivity that will sweep the globe. Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus will play leading roles altogether contributing to a powerful revolutionary juncture whose time has come! This is how synchronicity works and is already evident and will escalate measurably in the weeks to come.
