Sunday 11th August – Saturday 17th August 2019

Thursday 15th August

Tonight we have a full moon in Aquarius. I have just been scuttling off down our lane ‘moon hunting’. My husband says it’s not too difficult, perhaps that’s why I was successful! 😉 The full moon in Aquarius is opposite the sun in Leo. These are both fixed signs, Leo is an expressive, creative sign and Aquarius is in individualistic sign. Aquarians are often ahead of the pack and are the rebels of the zodiac. They are also humanitarian and objective. So this full moon is a good time to express your individuality and enjoy being who you are!

Wednesday 14th August

Today Venus, planet of love and beauty makes a conjunction to the sun. Inanna, the ancient Sumerian goddess is the Sumerian version of Venus the goddess of love. The Sumerians knew the cycles of the planet Venus and linked them to her myths. The eight pointed star is the symbol of Inanna.

Today Jupiter, planet of expansion, hope, belief and luck turns direct in its own sign of Sagittarius. It has been moving backwards for quite a while now, since April 11th 2019. So for the last four months you may have felt that your ideas and big dreams may not have been moving as smoothly as you would have liked. However, because of this you may have the time to reflect on your beliefs and grand plans. 
Now Jupiter is moving forwards and making a trine- a positive easy flowing aspect to the sun (our creative expression) and Venus, attraction and love in confident, fun loving Leo. This makes it a great time to be generous, both to ourselves and to others. So if you’ve been wanting to do something that you love, its’ a good time to make that leap of faith and believe in yourself. Just remember to have a a reality check every now and again- Jupiter in Sagittarius can get carried away!

Sunday 4th August to Saturday 10th August 2019

Saturday 10th August

We had a great day today and I was really excited because we went to the British Museum in London and saw The Queen of The night relief. This is a clay tablet of a Sumerian goddess, no one knows exactly who she is, some (like me) think she is Inanna, others that she is Lilith. She’s definitely sexy, powerful and bigger than I thought! I made my own copy to illustrate my talk about Inanna, so it is great to see the original.

Sunday 4th August

Yesterday was the monthly meeting of the Norfolk Astrological Association We had a lovely afternoon yesterday discussing astrology in Pat’s beautiful wood. We were pleased to welcome four new people to the group. Thank you to Liam for providing us with two very interesting charts those of the launch of Apollo 11 and the engineer Wherner von Braun who built the rocket Saturn 5. Thank you too to Pat for your generous hospitality which included lots of tea and nice cake😍

There will not be a meeting in September as most of us are busy that weekend. Our next meeting will be Saturday October 5th. The theme is yet to be decided. I will post on here when we have decided what it will be.

Sunday July 28th to Saturday August 3rd

1st August 2019

Today is the Pagan festival of Lamas or ‘loaf mass’, the harvest of the first fruits. If you are a gardener – like me then this you will probably be busy harvesting. We are fortunate enough of have a good crop of mini cucumbers which are running rampant in the poly tunnel. We also have quite a few courgettes and green beans. We’ve had masses of gooseberries which we had to fight the birds for. Here in rural Norfolk the farmers are flat out working to get the harvest in, I could hear the combines whirring away in the distance last night.

Wednesday July 31st

Tomorrow, Thursday 1st August is quite busy astrologically, firstly, we have a new moon in Leo. I like new moons, they signify the beginning of a new lunar month. They are good time to set intentions and remind ourselves where we are going and what we want to do. I need reminders, especially as I am now a lady of certain (forgetful) age! Leo is the sign of confidence, creativity and courage, so if you have been wanting to express yourself, now’s a good time to be brave and go for it!

Added to this, Mercury, planet of communication comes to the end of his retrograde period. this is when mercury appears to go backwards.This can be a time of confusion, delays and mixed messages. It is also a time for revelations and remembering. My mum had a clear out in her airing cupboard and discovered a load of family pictures that had been lurking there for years. That was quite a nice surprise, I had wondered where they had got to!

So for those of you who dread Mercury retrograde, it is almost over, only a few more hours to go. mercury goes direct at 04.57 am tomorrow morning so this is a time to look and move forward.
