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!

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!

moonclouds_smallIt’s difficult to get any writing done this morning, as duties to others are taking your attention. If you’re writing about children’s emotions, though, your work is supported. In the late afternoon, Moon in Capricorn allows you to get practical about using these emotions in your work. Your characters’ emotions will show you which way to take the story if you listen to them. Don’t force your characters into acting to a preconceived outline today. Let your characters’ true emotions lead you into new scenes you may never have thought of without them.

Later, a sudden Uranian idea can put a whole new perspective on your work. You can now see how to renew that stodgy old plot. You can write with increasing confidence this evening, right into the wee hours of the morning!

moonclouds_smallThe Moon trines Venus this morning taking away some of yesterday’s heaviness. We still have Jupiter square Mars, so over-the-top emotions can still occur. It will be difficult to capture these emotions in fully edited prose, so just jot down notes about how they feel. Today, all you may get are fleeting glimpses or half-remembered dreams of unknown feeling states. History writers will do the best writing today imagining how ancestral characters must have felt.

The potential for high tension drama is excellent today with plutonic aspects to a stellium in Leo. Murder mystery or erotica writers could do some powerful work today. Dig deep into your emotions, bring out that dramatic passion, and write it all down today!

moonclouds_smallYou’re feeling passionate about your writing today, but can’t really focus on the details. Your fingers will fly across the keyboard, and you’ll pound out truckloads of words. But, even though you could write “War and Peace” today, the mistakes, typos and grammar glitches could be just as numerous. You could also have fun playing with structure with Venus in Cancer trine Saturn in Scorpio. Overall, it’s a great day to make progress on your writing projects!
