It’s the 34th week of the year and the card of the week is the 3 of Cups Reversed. This is a reminder that everything in excess can be detrimental. Make sure you take time to really listen to your body, mind and spirit this week. If your body says rest, rest. If your mind says relax, relax. If your spirit craves nourishment, nourish it. With how intense things have been because of the eclipse, burnout is a real possibility. This is a time to get to know yourself so you can meet your own needs. No one else will do it for you. The number of the week is 34 which reduces to 7 in numerology, a number of self discovery.
Mantra: Know yourself.

Monday 8/21/2017 5 of Swords
Solar Eclipse in Leo 11:30 AM PST
New Moon in Leo 11:30 AM PST
Moon Void of Course 11:30 AM PST
Moon Enters Virgo 1:25 PM PST
The 5 of Swords is a card that appears when two parties walk away empty handed from a disagreement or situation. Moon trine Uranus at 10:39 AM PST is a transit of emotional excitement and deviation from the norm. People seek out new experiences with new people and this is certainly true because this transit takes place just a little under an hour before the eclipse. Be open to constructive changes on the way. If you realize that something isn’t serving you it’s time to walk away. Mercury Retrograde is a time when the Cosmic trash man comes along, so leave your rubbish out on the curb and let the black hole sun take it away. There is a Full Solar Eclipse with the New Moon in Leo at 11:30 AM PST. Give yourself over to the power of Leo and keep your eye on the sky today. You may literally see something you’ve never seen before … just make sure you have your official eclipse glasses!

Thursday 8/24/17 Hanged Man Reversed
Moon in Libra
When the Hanged Man appears upright, it’s a card of the waiting game.

Venus square Uranus at 12:00 PM PST is the only notable transit of the day. This is a dreamy, creative transit that could find you holding the people you love to unrealistic expectations. If you feel like you’ve been “kept hanging” maybe you feel like you’re hanging on because you set your expectations too high for someone. Instead of keeping yourself waiting for something that may never happen, flip your perspective and see what the truth behind the situation is. It may very well be time to cut yourself down from the tree and strike out in a different direction. The Moon is in the fair sign of Libra all day, reminding you that all is fair in this situation. The number of the day is 6, a number of breakthroughs.
