Weekly Horoscopes From August 12

Filed in Horoscopes

The Weekly Horoscopes from August 12 are up and ready to prep you for Mercury Retrograde and some Venusian Vampery.

It’s for Mega Mystic members only but here’s Leo/Leo Rising FYI

Leo/Leo Rising

Mercury turns Retrograde but you are imbued with extra mega-wattage from mighty forces in Leo. It would take more than a pesky little Mercurial transit to dull down your glow. Still, be prudent with whimsical spending and offers incoming that would require any major investment of $$/time/sanity. Weirdly, this next three weeks is when lost funds or hidden benefits can be uncovered by some suave fiscal sleuth action.

Broad theme: Balancing Big Savannah Visions of all the energy in Leo with the details obsession of Mercury in Virgo AND the power-tripping courtship rituals of Venus-Pluto-Jupiter.

Fun, right?  And hey at least Mercury in Virgo activities are a brilliant way to distract from it being the vortex between two Eclipses! Geopolitical note: You could see the Leo Versus Virgo vibe now as being a lot of hot-air-braggadocio swagger from certain leaders, even as some very real repair and finesse work is being done behind the scenes.

  1. I’m Leo Sun triple conjunct Saggo, my ex? bf is Sun Venus Mars in Leo + double conj Aries + double conj Saggo. All this fire and all this Leo seems to make us hotheaded, we’re fighting like maniacs and I guess we just broke up. This should be amazing time astrologically but I guess it’s just hard to channel all the energy into something productive for us fire peeps… Sure, men seem to think I’m completely irresistible at the moment but also completely WRONG men do so, I mean my friends’ fathers seem to think I’m irresistible which is just DISGUSTING.

    I pray for some grounding Earth energy and maybe some cool Water, even breezy Air!

    • oh god i know, i actually just saw the images popping up first and thought they were from the filming of the 2nd series of Handmaids Tale, they did not seem real.

  2. And okay, i would be more relaxed about North Korea situation if it Solar Eclipse on Aug 21/22 were not on the Ascendant of the USA President of the moment. I like to think, however, that there are capable, together people in the administration with experience in situations like this working hard for a diplomatic solution and a civilized consensus, despite the appalling rhetoric. i personally would prefer to think that the Solar Eclipse on Prez ascendant is more to do with findings being handed down by Bob Mueller and his investigative team. It feels impeachy…also Jupiter is past the provocative square to Pluto and Mars is not in catalyst mode at the moment….

    • I hope you’re right, MM – it IS entirely possible the Mueller investigation is heating up and this dangerous game of chicken is a “distraction grenade” thrown to divert heat/attention away from the Grand Jury sitch. It’s a textbook military diversion tactic I would expect from someone w/ Mars + Regulus Rising. Unfortunately though, with the Jupiter/Pluto Square (though separating) less than a degree and a half from exact and Venus/Ceres imminently triggering this whole shebang by turning it into a T-Square, I don’t think the answer for peace will come from within this Admin but instead will require the introduction of a 3rd party – I think it will require a massive act of international diplomacy to smooth things out. We do have both benefics involved so I am hopeful – Venus + Jupiter in Libra can speak of greater diplomatic intervention on the part of the global community; let’s all hope that’s how it manifests instead of it pulling in the allies of the countries involved in this abhorrent pissing contest. Mythologically speaking, when Ceres and Pluto faced off against one another the Earth was laid to waste – with these two astrological titans presently in opposition, “nuclear winter” is definitely an outcome we want to avoid.

    • I definitely can’t comment at a level that you both have, but is it worth examining the UN’s astrology – tho bearing in mind the convenient dismissal of its rulings (at times) for unilateral purposes by e.g. USA. However its presence as the only international peacekeeping organisation legally recognised by almost every country in the world might be … useful? in terms of world astro interacting with UN astro..? Its largely administrative function probably wouldn’t directly stop certain people mashing the keypad with their fist, so to speak, or, perhaps someone (a determined Taurus, perhaps) may accidentally on purpose spike his morning coffee with a heavy sedative in an act of calculated de-escalation..,

      the UN establishment date is 24-10-45 (sun in via combusta). The US ratified the treaty that established the UN on 08-08-45, USSR ratified it 24-10-45, China 28-09-45.

      i was going to delete this thinking ‘nah it’s stupid’ but i’ve come this far so…… post comment

  3. So i just wanted to share here, very quietly, that i am in the early planning stages of another Tarot – an alternative to the 12 Card one on the site already. So there will be a choice between that one and the new one; it’s going to be the most rad thing i have done yet – a one card reading using the Vanadium Lightyear Tarot from Neptunian Life Coaching Services. More soon.

  4. North Korea has been a serious problem for a long time. The despotic family running this country should have been dealt with many years ago. The same can be said for their nuclear program.
    The ruling families of North Korea have been working to be in this position for nearly 50 years. It was never a secret. They openly admitted their aims.
    So after at least 20 years of appeasement, numerous failed pow wows, continued supply of their military program by western corporations people want to blame Trump ? The guys an idiot but he inherited this mess lock stock and barrel. His childish tweet about you bomb us and we bomb you is certainly a different approach to past diplomacy but it won’t make any difference either way. The North Koreans are no less childish.

    Personally I’m worried that China is quietly and effectively creating a proxy war with the US, to be played out in North and South Korea. Not unlike the variety of proxy wars happening in Syria, Yemen, Eastern Europe etc between the Russians and the US and secondary players like Saudi Arabia and Iran.
    Their silence at this point is the pointer to where this scenario was cooked up.

  5. Hi Mystic,
    I recently returned from working away, to find my house had been broken into. My wine collection, jewellery , and many dear nicknacks had all gone, along with an odd collection of kitchen utensils and linen. I have installed a new security system, but still feel vulnerable and uneasy when in my beautiful house. What can I do to bring ease and warmth back into my home?

  6. Thanks for the great advice Mystic! I’m feeling more buoyant + optimistic than I have in awhile, that Full Moon weighed me down but now it feels like I have some space to move. And yes Leo rising I’m scoping for money to fund not just my schemes but to set a real foundation for success. Venusian magic would be gratefully accepted!!

  7. This Leo started getting zapped by the retro a few days ago. First, US Postal refused to honor a return label on a package, so I had to make a trip to FedEX – hate USPS. Then, my contractor told me he’d remove my stove (cooker) prior to the delivery of a new one. Came home from work, he hadn’t done the job and when phoned told me he decided not to do it. Left me scrambling to find another dude for the job. Finally, the new stone arrives, a magnificent pro model – with a big scratch across the front. Will take three weeks to get a replacement. Not just mercury, why is Vesta hating on me? What did I do to deserve this?

  8. The vortex between two eclipses…..yeah, I’m feeling that!

    On Monday I *finally* have my court date to *finally* get my rent reduction for the effects of the leaky roof in my apartment — this has been dragging on for months, and is a problem that started back in 2016!!! My landlords are a-holes.

    Feeling nervous about it all because it’s nerve-wracking to go to court in general but wondering how the astro will support, or not. Wondering if the eclipse vortex will have a positive or negative effect on this proceeding?

    Venus is transiting right on my ascendant right now, so that should help a bit? All the Leo stuff is opposite my Aqua Sun right now, so not sure about that?

    Mercury in Virgo, should help with precision and details and perhaps the retrograde will help since this is a revisited issue, not a new one, and this court date is the result of a failed mediation last time, so it’s like a ‘do-over’ which is favored on retrogrades, right? Hopefully it will all FINALLY get resolved!

    Please send me some good luck vibes! 🙂

    • I’m replying as a land lord at the other end of the scales. Keep your fingers crossed for a good outcome as the law seems to be functioning in this realm at least. I had a tenant I finally removed last year exactly and had gone through a terrible time and full legal proceedings to get a vast sum for the damage he’d caused. Yesterday I got a cheque through for many thousands and can now finish off the repairs. Keep working through it.
      And personally it’s a huge victory for me as I’ve been through court a few times and have always lost totally. But that was all in the realm of family law and I’m afraid it totally found in favour of my ex and allowed him to pay nothing for his daughter although he’s a lawyer by trade ? Or maybe because he is a lawyer !!!! So this has given me a little faith back.

  9. I cannot articulate where Mercury is situated on my chart right now, though, being a Sun And Mercury Leo with Pisces Moon and Ascendant…..
    I’ve had both intense and freak out frustrating tech issues….
    and almost everybody telling me their personal stories or/and their deepest dark secrets.
    I’ve become the psychologist that was always within. Which really constitutes with me listening.
    Although, the deep dark secrets have been some what confronting and challenging….
    And,,,, weirdly, I’ve developed a skill as to wherever I go or pop into, I’ve become a … celebrity of sorts. You kind of have to witness it to understand. But. I almost get mobbed.

  10. If the core vibe of this week (+ the rest of August), really is the great career prospects (due to the cosmic crush in my vocational sector) – I’m struggling with recovering from rejection in my career at the mo. So bad so to the point I feel like I’m ultimately sinking and I’ll never recover or get past this to move ahead. How can I have the successful redefinition of reputation if I have no optimism for opportunities…

    Sad Scorp is sad.

    • Of course you’re allowed to feel dispirited and completely off about it all. An interpretation should not bring you down. Cosmic crush doesn’t just mean rainbows and pots of gold. It is heightened energy in general, for better or worse. Your personal astro might be getting pinged. There are no “grades” for doing astrology “right”, and who’s to say that this momentary downshift isn’t in fact part of a bigger picture of constructive change that’s simply hard to see at the moment. There is no God of good choices. Career shifts take time. Give yourself a chance and absolutely avoid self judgement.

      • Especially as a scorp sun and aqua moon. Leo energy squares all of this. It’s difficult, but you will be fine. Let your scorpy sun feel the feels and then go deeper out of range of the surface crap, and at the same time free your aqua moon to free-range think and process options, *when you are ready* x

        • Thank you a million times over. I have been reflecting all weekend and I am feeling all of this. Especially hopeful that this momentary downshift is just a small window closing, but a greater door opening – simply hard to see at the moment. I am becoming more mindful of my daily intentions as well.

          I already feel WORLDS better.

  11. LOL @ the thought of “repair & finesse work” being done behind this scenes by this admin – finesse is the very last thing DJT knows how to do as a Mars Rising. Welp, it’s looking more & more by the day like what I mentioned a while ago re: the Total Solar Eclipse possibly bringing a declaration of war by DJT may actually come to fruition. Now let’s hope for the heart failure. 😛 Never in the history of ever have I rooted for someone’s downfall like this – I consider it way beneath me and a piss-poor use of my energy. But this time I take exception; you’re not Plutonic if you don’t occasionally indulge your darker side (with good reason), LOL…

    I do not like the way the eclipse degree is going to be re-ignited by a Stationary Direct Mercury + Mars – this looks less like saber-rattling to me and more like an actual announcement of war. These two jackasses are sitting here playing chicken with one another and they’re so self-absorbed that neither cares their little dick-measuring competition is going to result in people dying.

    SMDH. Mars in Leo + Regulus Rising has no idea how to de-escalate a conflict – too much of the ego is tied up in “winning”. And we gave this guy nuke codes along with the unilateral authority to use them – bravo.

    *claps hands weakly*

    • El Em Eff Ay Oh – so now it’s North Korea AND Venezuela our Fearless Leader is beating his chest at?! WTF is this; Gemini multitasking gone horribly awry?

  12. I marvel and despair how you read it back and almost simultaneously think did i say that sorry for the tone–bands doin a sound check and I got this buzzin in my ear i think it is…climate change and the secret busi ess of my realisation

  13. Next level earth wobble internet warfare global prick stories with ridiculously desperate consequences. Denial of the worst case scenario is not going to take oxygen out of the problem. The honourable smart position for us, north korea, australia is retreat i ching style. Made you blink both blinked go down in history as demi-gods of legions of knuckled heads and unthinkable responsibilty. Bravo for comments you mean play for points, bonuses or money?
    My personal thanks straight back at you— Mystic for the sensational stream of images sourced from the wilds of history and art with swelter of pilferers and progeny charting the chaotic, the cosmic, the cathartic, the cool and the blue ontology of the marine planet and those undersea network. See the review on Undersea network forthcoming

  14. Thanks Mystic! This time is interesting for this Virgo sun, Leo rising! Mercury is stationing retro on natal Mercury (square natal Uranus and Chiron). I’m a recent art graduate and I have just started working on a video interview with a fellow artist – and I need to create an artist website and get my schizz together so hopefully it will help! Hmmmm I’m backing everything up pronto! Xx
