Monday morning August 17th the moon enters the sign of Leo at 1:38 AM ET which puts us in the balsamic lunar phase until the New Moon on Tuesday the 18th at 10:42 PM ET.
So, what are we going to do Monday and all of Tuesday until the New Moon? We are going to remember that we can’t control everything. We need to be flexible and adjustable and to take our time, allow the things that are shifting and changing to be what they are so the time being. We’re all doing our best to sift and sort through all of the information that’s bombarding us these days and that can be exhausting. The balsamic lunar phase is the period of rest, inner reflection and distilling information. This is repeated with Mercury making the connections it’s making through the beginning of this week as well. I’ll write more about that in the next paragraph.
Simultaneously on Monday Tuesday and Wednesday the 19th Mercury is at the very end of Leo. What Mercury in Leo represents along with the connections he is making over these 3 days is this and we can see it all around us. The conversations people are having are very animated maybe even argumentative and super fiery. This is Mercury at the end of Leo and the aspects he is making to all the Capricorn planets over this 3 day time period. What can we expect? We should expect to have many lively conversations, we could also use this energy to open our minds to new and different ideas and opportunities, possibly expect your mind to be blown or challenged. We can use this to grow or get knocked off kilter.
Tuesday August 18th 10:42 PM ET is the New Moon at 26 degrees of Leo. New opportunities to begin new adventures, new creative projects and to act on those things that you are passionate about but haven’t done anything yet. New Moons are always important time periods to pause, especially the first 48 hours after a New Moon, and set goals for what you want in your future. If you follow me often you know I talk about the lunar phases a lot! The New Moons are the beginning of a monthly cycle but also a cycle that lasts 3 years. It is so important to work with them intentionally as often as possible, using the energy of the New Moon sign, this month is Leo as I have already mentioned. So get your creative juices flowing and start planning! If you would like help with your New Moon goals every month on my Patreon platform Tier 1 and above is for just that.

Wednesday August 19th is when Mercury enters Virgo, he enjoys this sign as it is one of his home placements. Over the coming 3 weeks we will all be focusing in on more details as the world continues to spin out of control. But what we can do is this, we can take back personal control, the specifics of what category that will be depends on the placement of Virgo in your natal chart. But rest assured even if you don’t know that placement all of us will be focusing on the details somewhere in our lives.
The Moon will be in Virgo as a waxing Moon for Wednesday and Thursday so that will certainly inspire us to pay attention to even more details around the home.
Saturday August 22nd at 11:45 AM ET the Sun enters Virgo adding his superpower to the mix which is shining his light on the subjects of our focus now. Some of the categories that Virgo is in charge of are our daily habits and routines, overall health and well being. This might not bode well for the schools that are trying to open during this week, and it will give other people a heads up in regard to what to expect. A lot of details around school openings will be highlighted over these few weeks for sure.
I know we are all looking for some normalcy and the children need it more than ever, we all need it for our mental health too, but it will take a little longer before that shows up in the world. Where it can show up now is in your daily living. Create new routines that the family can rely on. Rest assured with Mercury in Virgo now through September 5th and the Sun in Virgo till September 22nd we will find a new routine that feels comfortable and safe for you and your family.
All my love, Dorothy
