Daily General Horoscopes - Sunday 20 August
Don't even think about opting out of the weekend spirit. As Saturn spends his last weekend in retrograde motion in your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery for another 28 years, this will be vigorously policed. What in particular is being policed is a chance to make up for lost time, making the most of the doors still open to the past and second chances and to take responsibility for what you may have missed out. By this time next weekend new adventures will await.
The weekend is often a time when we either get to or need to spend time for family or just retreat to your home base. So to have the Moon return to your home and family sector over the weekend is always going to be a benefit. However, this is no ordinary visit and no ordinary monthly update. With the Sun in his last weekend here, the Moon returns to begin the lead up to a total solar eclipse and the chance for some major new beginnings.
Just having the Moon return to your communication sector during Saturn's last weekend in retrograde motion in your relationship sector is huge. But the Moon has not only returned during the Sun's last weekend in your communication sector, but to begin the line up for a total solar eclipse in three days' time. With the doors still open to the past on the relationship front, the potential for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough is increasing by the day.
As she spends her last weekend in Cancer, Venus is giving you a chance to regroup after what has been a roller coaster of a week. It was Venus conflict with relationship forces that has shaken a few trees. But this was all in an effect to get to the heart of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. Yet as she looks at your expectations for this new solar year Venus is looking beyond your romantic and relationship needs, to all aspects of your life.
Just as the Sun is spending his last weekend in Leo, the Moon returns to not only help see your birthday month out, but to begin the lead up to a total solar eclipse in two days' time. Your birthday month began with a New Moon in its first 24 hours and will end with an eclipsing New Moon in its final 24 hours. Any doubt that this is a major year for new beginnings has long since been shattered. Yet it is a sense of nostalgia in the air today that holds clues to what you want this new solar year to bring.
The last weekend of your old solar year is always an important time to pull back, put out the 'do not disturb' sign and do some quality navel gazing. The Moon's return to a nostalgic part of your chart will help with that, but don't expect life to stand back. With Venus spending her last weekend in a social and serendipitous part of your chart, she will want to be out and about where fate and the laws of attraction and synchronicity can find you.
The Moon's return to a social and serendipitous part of your chart during the Sun's last weekend is bigger than what this might create today. Yes, this does set the scene for a social and serendipitous weekend, but this is when the build up to a total solar eclipse begins. This is something forces across the communication, relationship and friendship fronts have been preparing for all week. From the get go this is a day where hunches need to take the lead.
With the Sun in his last weekend in your career sector, even without the Moon's return it was always a given that you would need to keep your professional hat on. And with Saturn in his last full week in retrograde motion in your income sector and so much support on the job front, your work and money hats as well. This is the day that the lead up to a total solar eclipse on the career front begins, making it important to let your professional instincts take the lead.
If Venus, in her last weekend in your financial sector, wants you to keep your money hat on, then she will need to stand in line. With the Sun not only spending his last weekend in an adventurous part of your chart, but the Moon returning ahead of a total solar eclipse, this is also a weekend for embracing the weekend spirit. Yet on the financial, professional, home, relationship and every other front, this is a reminder that it's all about the journey.
No matter how busy you are and how many things are going on, Venus is urging you to make her last weekend in your relationship sector count. The Moon only left yesterday, so your emotional responses are still likely to be strong. On a day when you're still likely to be wearing your money and professional hats, do what you can to put all your relationships first. With the planet of love and guardian of your relationships on board, this is too good an opportunity to miss.
The Sun's last weekend in your relationship sector was always going to put the focus on your relationships today. Yet the Moon's return today gives you what you didn't have with a New Moon in the Sun's early days and that is time. A second New Moon and this time a total solar eclipse is still two days away. This gives you two days for the Sun and Moon to slowly come together and for eclipse energy to build. This is something you need to follow rather than lead.
You have a problem today. However, it is a problem that is easily overcome and a problem the rest of us would love to have. The problem is that on the eve of a total solar eclipse on the work front and a major career turnaround, there is a need to keep your work and professional hats on over the weekend. However Venus, planet of love is making this a playful and romantically charged weekend. With neither side backing down it is all about having a balance between work and play.
