shifts in the weather pat­tern, and a change in the stock mar­ket as the sun and Jupiter en­tered Virgo last week. As­trologers ex­pect a gen­er­al­ized de­fla­tion and re­or­ga­ni­za­tion to­ward what is solid and prag­matic as ex­pan­sive Jupiter en­ters nervy, skit­tish, log­i­cal Virgo.

The stock mar­ket re­sponds to emo­tional pat­terns in the stars, not log­i­cal ones. Venus and Mars, the plan­ets that sym­bol­ize our emo­tional realm, con­junct in melo­dra­matic Leo through­out Septem­ber and crank up the vol­ume on events and our emo­tional re­sponses. New friend­ships take a while to cul­ti­vate, but we can start plant­ing the seeds now. This Mars and Venus as­pect can also stim­u­late an over­re­ac­tion to our hopes and fears. Through early Novem­ber, we need to re­di­rect the fo­cus away from fear and build on solid ground.

We re­ally need emo­tional and eco­nomic bal­last through this week­end as the moon waxes not just full, but su­per­moon full, at its clos­est ap­proach to the Earth. Shim­mer­ing in the dis­tance be­hind this full moon is Nep­tune, which gives us an ex­tra emo­tional flood.

Early next week an Aries moon can stim­u­late re­bel­lion. Don’t try to be the voice of com­mon sense. De­lay de­ci­sions un­til mid­week, when the Taurus moon gives us a sense of prag­ma­tism.

FRI­DAY, AUG. 28: A pos­i­tive, friendly cur­rent of energy can dif­fuse an un­der­ly­ing ner­vous ir­ri­ta­tion; it helps to find some­thing prac­ti­cal to do. If we get un­set­tling news as the sun chal­lenges Uranus, know that it’s only part of the pic­ture. Data can mis­rep­re­sent the truth; ask ques­tions. Af­ter a busy, dis­jointed day, we need to rest and de­stress tonight.

SATUR­DAY, AUG. 29: We pud­dle about in our emo­tions, bur­row into our hopes and fears, are inspired, or just watch car­toons around the Pisces full moon at 12:35 p.m. It helps to keep busy. Mi­nor crises come to a head — let feel­ings flow but make no long-term de­ci­sions. Look for gen­tle magic tonight.

SUN­DAY, AUG. 30: Flashes of ge­nius are pos­si­ble — lis­ten to sud­den ideas. Energy will ebb and flow through­out the day — let’s pace our­selves. Gen­tle­ness and imag­i­na­tion are ap­pre­ci­ated.

MON­DAY, AUG. 31: Avoid sud­den er­ratic moves as the sun op­poses Nep­tune and opens our imag­i­na­tion but im­pairs our per­cep­tion. If we meet some­body un­usual, read noth­ing into it un­til the story un­folds.

TUES­DAY, SEPT. 1: We want to feel part of some­thing larger this morn­ing, and our con­tent­ment may de­pend upon how much we can en­gage with oth­ers. Im­pulse con­trol is low as the moon con­juncts Uranus. Our knee­jerk re­ac­tion will be re­bel­lious, but that can give us strength. A tired calm seeps in tonight.

WED­NES­DAY, SEPT. 2: We feel grounded, prac­ti­cal, and de­ter­mined as the earthy Taurus moon trines Jupiter. Pos­i­tive sta­bil­ity and steady rou­tines can com­fort us and build sup­port. Small acts of gen­eros­ity go far.

THURS­DAY, SEPT. 3: Our at­ten­tion fo­cuses on re­la­tion­ships, and we feel self-in­dul­gent and stub­born as the moon squares Venus and Mars this morn­ing. Deal with prob­lems that need an even hand af­ter noon. Tonight we can think about our mem­o­ries or knotty prob­lems as the moon chal­lenges Pluto.
