PURE AND SIMPLE: THIS WEEK'S COSMIC ACTIVITY,
WITH INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES TO GUIDE YOU THROUGH THE WEEK            

You can read my monthly Sun sign column in the UK women's magazine Company, and there are numerous websites where you can read your weekly Sun sign predictions. On this site, however, I offer energy predictions - clear and simple explanations of what the planets are doing in the skies above, and how this is likely to affect us here on Earth, illustrated by inspirational, thought-provoking or simply entertaining quotes and proverbs.

WEEK BEGINNING MONDAY 1 SEPTEMBER AUGUST 2014

TUESDAY: MERCURY ENTERS LIBRA: DIPLOMATIC THOUGHTS; GRACEFUL SPEECH
Mercury is the planet of mind and communication. It's about how we think, learn and speak. Mercury's a fast-moving planet and changes sign frequently - just under every 3 weeks - so it's change of sign is not hugely significant by itself. It's when Mercury interacts with other planets that it's more relevant, and its transit will also have something more personal to say to you depending on which part of your individual birth chart Mercury is transiting. However, some interesting general points can be made about Mercury's transit of Libra - it is likely to encourage much more diplomacy and fairness in our communications with each other, and we are likely to speak with more dignity and grace.

WEDNESDAY: SUN TRINE PLUTO - INNER STRENGTH; POSITIVE CHANGES; GETTING TO THE BOTTOM OF THINGS
The sun is in happy alignment with transformative Pluto, providing the ideal energy to make changes, however small, or to clear up things in your life that may be a little messy (whether it's a relationship, or simply your home).  Inner strength and personal resolve is increased; look inside yourself, work out what you want to change - then do it. Pluto's potent energy should help you make changes more easily, and - thanks to the Sun's influence - with more enjoyment too. Since Pluto also has a probing, soul-searching energy, this transit also helps us to dig a bit deeper into our psyche (a good day for some self-analysis, put yourself on that couch) and into anything going on around us that we want to know more about - ask a few questions, do some subtle digging, you may just manage to solve a dilemma that's been niggling you.

FRIDAY: VENUS ENTERS VIRGO - PRACTICAL AFFECTION
Astrologically, Venus represents romance, beauty, affection, pleasure and money and now that Venus is entering Virgo, during the coming month, in a very general sense affections on Earth are likely to be expressed in a more straightforward and practical manner - and there should be stronger enjoyment of work and of keep-fit routines, with more harmonious relationships with colleagues. However, these are just general energy vibes, and Venus's change of sign has much more to say to you personally depending on the area of your individual natal chart that it's transiting.

'It was the time when they loved each other best, without hurry or excess, when both were most conscious of and grateful for their incredible victories over adversity. Life would still present them with other mortal trails, of course, but that no longer mattered: they were on the other shore.' ― Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez, Love in the Time of Cholera





Have a great week!
