Forecast 8/30 The moon is void of course/voc* pre-dawn. The Moon enters Scorpio at 4:53 a.m. ET. This is a profoundly powerful day for therapeutic work and research. If you are comfortable with water energy (have a lot of Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces in your horoscope) you may want to be alone or with those closest to you.
This is also a great time for investing or getting financial advice. A sense of “knowing” or intuition may lead you to something that feels right. The image of “grandmother” is a theme; this is both symbolic and may refer to your actual grandmother.
Tap into your inner wise old feminine, regardless of your gender. But after a conversation with my daughter, I realize that it may not be the “wise old feminine”, in the way of a comforting grandmother- I am from the generation of women that embraced the term “feminism” as a coming home… and by that I mean comfortable in your skin, not necessarily the home you were born.
I admit a few of my peers in college in the 1970s thought Gloria Steinem and Maya Angelou were exaggerating, which drove me crazy. It’s true, I had a stereotypical mannish female professor when I took “feminist literature” ; I adored the class and my male friend took it because he thought it would be a “gut”. He was one of two guys in the class and I think he experienced reversed sexism which surprised him. I never felt I had to ditch lipstick to appreciate Virginia Woolf.
Beyonce is a very controversial figure for young women and I have to say, I am a fan. She’s a woman who appreciates her body’s need to eat food and exercise; she looks like a 3-dimensional person not a cut-out doll. Beyonce knows her market and works hard to keep her family somewhat private. She is a Virgo, so we are close to her birthday. I will write about her astrology soon because she is much more than pop fizzle. I can’t post the image, because of copyright, but if you missed her iconic stance, you can find it here.
Virgos can have a tremendous impact when they find themselves in the public eye -their beauty attracts but they can pack a big wallop if they so choose: Sofia Loren, Raquel Welch, Vanessa Williams and Beyonce to name a few. These women all broke molds and got attention because they are gorgeous and poised- they understood how they were perceived and they use it as a tool. They also never caved under the influence of drugs, fame or the wrong partners… a Virgo always keeps herself a bit apart. Interesting article about Beyonce and feminism.
In this picture of Beyonce and her uber-strong husband, who looks more free, more in control and more wide open to life? No wonder he is a devotee. So whether you choose a “grandmother” feminine or something more rocking’, may this be a weekend where you “work it”.
*Moon VOC/Void-of-Course… in Libra, enjoy a museum, music, dance. It may be lovely to be with someone you love as long as you don’t initiate any major discussions.
