Weekly Horoscope (For The Right People Only), August 25-31, 2014

posted by Matthew Currie

This week’s horoscope is going to be just a little bit different from the usual. Normally I would be breaking down the effects of the upcoming week’s transits for everyone, and sorting them by Sun Sign. This week’s horoscope is only directed at the Right People. If you are not one of these, feel free to move along. Next week’s horoscope will be more for you.

How do you if you’re one of the Right People? You can tell because of that sound that’s been building in the background for the last couple of months. You know the one: the low groaning that sounds like old timbers being stressed in a windstorm. It’s the sound of what the Saturn-Uranus quincunx has been doing to you, and it’s gotten louder in the last week or so because Mars has joined it.

That particular transit hits its peak on Monday, which is also the day of the New Moon. We are starting a new cycle, and this one is being born with a little more mess and screaming than the average birth. You might at times find yourself wondering if this crap will ever end, or if something even worse is about to come into being.

This is how you know that you are one of the Right People: you are being forged into something better than you were. I know that’s often very painful and awkward and lonely, but I think you’re going to turn out all right, and I have three reasons to believe that.

First of all, on this New Moon, Mercury is sextile Mars and Saturn. This means that if something blows up in your life, you will have the brains and common sense as to what to do about it. And hopefully, if you need to be the one who blows something up, you will be able to do it wisely and efficiently.

Secondly, Venus is trine Uranus. Mars conjunct Saturn may sound like a gathering of fierce darkness, but when Venus and Uranus work together, acts of loving genius are possible. Whether this love is something you need to show to someone else or yourself is your decision.

But finally: the only reason the Universe is giving you the gift of strife or anguish or pressure or tension or craziness that it is right now is because, after all, you are one of The Right People. That has to be a tremendous comfort, doesn’t it?

“When the darkness comes, know this: you are the right people, in the right place, at the right time.”

-Babylon 5

Astrology, Ferguson Missouri, Michael Brown: The Unstoppable Clock
Astrologers sometimes struggle with a certain sense of fatalism. As much as we understand the role that Free Will plays in a person's life, we know that we can never escape some of the conditions laid down by the birth chart and by transits to it. We know when to carry an umbrella, but we can't stop

Oh, Astrology. You are the gift that keeps on giving, making sense of The Crazy. Case in point: It was recently announced that well-known monster Charles Manson is getting married.

The Uranus-Pluto square becomes exact again in December. It's become so much of the background noise of our era that sometimes it seems unfair to blame any one thing on it at all.
