Thursday Aug. 11: This is the day when Venus enters Leo. Venus in Leo is a “look at me” Venus, meaning that our feelings and emotional displays will be set on high for the next few weeks. Venus in Leo encourages us to make a statement about our wants and desires. This is our opportunity to be honest about how we feel, to let others know it. You don’t want to be subtle when Venus is in Leo. Say what you want. Say how you feel. Your authentic expression will encourage others to do the same. Everybody talks about the controversial co-founder of Apple, the late Steve Jobs. Equally we should acknowledge Steve Wozniak, his partner, who turns 72 today.
Friday, Aug. 12: It’s the full moon in Aquarius for 2022. The full moon in Aquarius is conjunct Saturn and square Uranus and the Nodes. This full moon will feel sober and heavy – it will show us where we need to get our act together, behave like an adult and take charge of our destiny. The good thing about a full moon conjunct Saturn in Saturn’s sign (Aquarius) is that it carries a very strong manifesting energy. Moon plus Saturn in its sign tries to make things happen. This is when some of our most important projects may come to life. Hard work may or may not pay off. Happy birthday #51 to the winner of 14 tennis Grand Slam tennis tournaments, Pete Sampras.
