AUGUST 15 ~ daily astrology for writers ~ Writing With The Stars

moonclouds_smallYou’ll be fired up to write very early this morning. This is the day you can add all the tiny details you may have left out. It is a perfect day for editing. You’ll be tired of all the emotional depths you’ve been writing about, and you’re ready to concentrate on the minutiae. Go over old scenes and paint in the decorative scenic items you may have missed. It’s a great day to describe the physical surroundings or your characters’ appearance. Or try giving one of your characters a small, but meaningful gesture that would add depth to the scene.

AUGUST 14 ~ daily astrology for writers ~ Writing With The Stars

moonclouds_smallWrite scenes where your characters are frustrated today. They are irritated, but don’t know why. They are anxious, but can’t put their finger on the exact cause. These are the pacing-around-the-room-with-worry scenes. The scratching-their-head-trying-to-fit-the-puzzle-together scenes. Don’t let them solve the problem too quickly. Let them stew awhile. Later, a detail from the past could be the key that fixes everything.

moonclouds_smallYou can pick up where you left off yesterday with that romance scene. The emotions get feisty and passionate as the Moon enters Aries. Maybe a lover’s spat? With Moon trine Jupiter, your characters are heating up. They may fall into a passionate embrace. They may just as easily get angry, stomp out of the room, and slam the door behind them. Either way, today’s writing waters will be at an emotional full boil.

moonclouds_smallToday we’re channelling information from the past. You may come across historical details that spark your interest and add flavor to your writing. If you write ghost stories, historical novels or period pieces of any kind, new details can come to light. As Venus enters Leo later today trining Ceres in Scorpio, write that love scene and don’t hold back on the romance!

moonclouds_smallThis morning you will be sensitive to your characters’ emotions. Moon trine Ceres supports writing about emotional healing. As the Moon moves into Pisces, human compassion becomes the mainstay of today’s writing. If you know you will need a scene of intimate communication, today is the day to write it. This evening, the writing we have done today forces changes in the plot. Adjust your outline accordingly.

moonclouds_smallIt’s a Supermoon in Aquarius today. We have sudden, unusual ideas about rescuing our characters from their dramatic quagmire. Yet, it may get worse before it gets better. Don’t despair if you think you’re just digging your characters into a deeper hole. By the afternoon, a ‘mystic rectangle’ with Mercury saves the day, and everything emerges into harmony and balance. You may not know exactly what you did right, but the result will be better than if you had planned it.

AUGUST 9 ~ daily astrology for writers ~ Writing With The Stars

moonclouds_smallThe Moon enters Aquarius this morning giving us inventive ideas about society. If you’re a fantasy or sci-fi writer, you may get some interesting world-building ideas. You can expand those ideas into real dramatic scenes this afternoon and evening. Sun conjunct Mercury, along with Jupiter in Leo all day makes this a day you will want to show off your productions. But Venus in Cancer is trying to get you to stay home. Do a little of both today!

AUGUST 8 ~ daily astrology for writers ~ Writing With The Stars

moonclouds_smallYour wild, inventive side will be fighting with your down-to-earth, practical side early this morning. After breakfast, you see a way to make both of these conflicting forces work together. The key is to allow both the wild inspiration and the concrete order, and funnel them both into fiery drama. Later, you’ll be worn out from all this excitement, but you’ll see how the results were almost destined. Take a break tonight. You need it!
