Your Weekly Astrology Overview: August 19-25, 2019

Happy mid-August, friends!

Can you believe that this week marks the two-thirds mark of this month? I can’t. Man, has this Summer just flown. After bracing ourselves for eclipse season, dealing with the fallout or lack thereof, and heading into August the Universe begins to slow down as we prepare for the next season which is that of Autumn, Fall, and harvest time. That is in the Northern Hemisphere, our Southern Hemisphere friends will be dreaming about Spring! Woo hoo for YOU!

This week is a nice and easy-going week from the astrology gods in the sky, and one where we’ll just be enjoying the fun and loves of August. The planets sending Leo energy are giving us all kinds of flattery and attention from everywhere, and we are all feeling easy, breezy, and beautiful.

Last week may have felt like an intense one for you, with a Full Moon in Aquarius bringing a long-overdue project or issue to completion. The week that finished with shock planet Uranus going retrograde and Jupiter turning direct. Woo hoo! Luck is around every corner now.

Uranus may have his share of surprises, but we’ve got you on this!

This week, all is quiet and bright. The main moves from the planets will be conjunctions and trines, and that means some good news and good vibrations for you!

Enjoy the lull and the lovely little glow as you begin to think about saying farewell to this amazing Summer, and hello to the bright new blessings ahead.
