Each soul is potentially divine. The goal is to manifest this divinity within by controlling nature, external and internal. Do this either by work, worship, psychic control or philosophy — by one, or more, or all of these — and be free. This is the whole of religion. Doctrines, dogmas, rituals, books, temples, and forms, are but secondary details. -- Swami Vivikenanda

Beverley Taylor: Astro Horoscopes -- Week of August 19-25, 2013
A bit more planetary movement this week, as both the Sun and Mercury change signs, towards the end of the week. The rest of the planets, Venus through to Pluto remain where they are for this week. The Sun is in it’s last phase of commanding, distinguished, extravagant Leo. On Friday, it moves into modest, organized, modest, particular Virgo.
The Moon starts the week in aloof, pessimistic, responsible Capricorn. On Tuesday it moves into impulsive, magnetic, imperative Aquarius, with a Full Moon on 20th, making us a bit melodramatic. On Thursday it moves into emotional, responsive, sensitive Pisces. Saturday it moves into active, excitable, impulsive Aries, finishing the week there.
Mercury remains in organized, dogmatic, stubborn Leo until Saturday, when it moves into rational, decisive, finicky Virgo.
Venus remains in plausible, sensual Libra.
Mars is now in it’s last phase of ambitious, passionate and sensitive Cancer.
Jupiter remains in caring, considerate, generous Cancer for quite a while.
Saturn remains in enduring, purposeful, resourceful, & strong-willed Scorpio, until the end of 2013. It only travels Retrograde for a week, then starts moving forward again.
Uranus remains in energetic, courageous, self-willed, proud Aries, for the next few years, and helps brings out our individualistic, rebellious side, unexpected events or disruptive emotional matters, may distract us, or help us see things differently. Uranus travels Retrograde for some while, giving us plenty of new ideas, and different, unique ways of acting on these.
Neptune is settled in sensitive, intuitive Pisces, & can help us develop empathy, compassion, & understanding, with a need to remain realistic. Neptune is still traveling Retrograde, and can make us unrealistic at times.
Pluto remains in Capricorn for quite a few years, so is a very long term influence, showing knowledge gradually acquired on deeper levels, with balance, & more realistic ways of recycling & developing our intuitive knowledge further, to use practically. It travels Retrograde until Mid September, giving a strong need for self-knowledge and inner truth.
