AUGUST OVERVIEW for all signs:

Can you believe we all made it through warrior Mars delving deep into the underworld of Scorpio and actively pushing us all over life and death scenarios, power struggles, control issues, third party situations, sexual drive, divorce, and major financial themes? Well, we did and now August is going to turn the page on that story as Mars enters into Sagittarius on the 2nd and tours here until September 27th. This is now the time to dive into legal matters, travel plans, foreign interests, media projects, marketing ideas, educational pursuits, weddings, religion, or politics. Choose the ones that call to you and expect to be able to motivate on a higher level than at other times over the next 2 years, it’s time to do it! Note that Saturn has been Retrograde over these same themes since March and now will go Direct on the 13th allowing for forward movement involving goals, commitments, endings, structuring, authority figures in the mix like the boss, parent, judge, or mentor, responsibilities, and ambitions. So you may get another boost around this mid-month period. Finally, Mars and Saturn come together on the same degree on the 24th so this date may be important for the direction you are going with these legal, travel, educational, foreign, media, marketing, wedding, religious, or political interests.
 
 Our New Moon this month is also on the 2nd and in Leo. This means we all get a cosmic boost to help us start something new or move things into that next chapter in ongoing scenarios that focus on Leo themes: True love, children, creativity, and fun. So plan on embarking on that next level opportunity here and planting seeds that can then grow sometime in the 2 weeks that follow this New Moon, you’ll have more momentum behind it if you do. 

Next month we will experience a New Moon Solar Eclipse and this is a very powerful new beginning energy that has the capacity to eclipse out what is blocking progress or that has run it's course as part of the fresh start. This month the Eclipse Trigger Date falls on the 4th. That means that you may experience part or all of that new beginning energy on this preview day. Not everyone does, but if you do look for signs that something new is in the offering or can be kicked off involving health, work, animals, paperwork, co-workers, hired help, getting organized, cleaning, or with environmental interests.

There is going to be a surge of energy pouring into Virgo as well this month and it is one of those windows of time that won’t repeat again for another 12 years so you REALLY want to be proactive about these themes: work, hired help, co-workers, organizing, cleaning, simplifying, paperwork, health, animals, and environmental interests. There is true growth opportunity here and this is the month to start the talks, meetings, interviews, short trips, local activities, writing, agreements, sales, or decisions about it. Seek out ways to earn money, involve women, share the love, or focus on the beauty there. This is the last full month of Jupiter bringing his luck and expansive energy to these topics, Mercury is already here as the month begins and will stay until Oct. 7th, and now Venus and the Sun will join in helping you to show up and get more personally or physically active in what is possible. Key dates that stand out are the 5th, 22nd and 27th for added potential, so circle them on your calendar. Mercury will Retrograde over these matters starting on the 30th so things will begin to slow and at this point it will be time to start to go back over everything to fine tune things and get them right by the time Mercury goes Direct on Sept. 22nd. This fine tuning process may involve reconnecting with past people, issues or situations to rework things or release them, and as with all MRx periods you do have to watch out for mix-ups or glitches that can occur, part of the slowing down process so that you don’t overlook something that needs that added attention.

The Full Moon this month arrives on the 18th so you will be building to some kind of high-point in Aquarius by this date. That means something may be wrapping up, ending, celebrated, or achieved involving your aspirations, freedom, original ideas, cause, charities, friends, group, the internet, astrology, or gathering at this time. Emotions run high, it’s about the arc of what’s happened over the last year in these arenas.

Next month we will experience a second Eclipse, this one a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Pisces and this is a very powerful culmination energy that has the capacity to eclipse out what has run it's course as part of the wrap-up, ending, achievement, or celebration. This month the second Eclipse Trigger Date falls on the 19th. That means that you may experience part or all of that climactic energy on this preview day. Not everyone does, but if you do look for signs that something is reaching it's apex involving film, music, art, or other muse-related topics, prayer, meditation, yoga, or other spiritual practices, karmic/past life unions, clandestine romance, or romantic getaways, healing, dealing with addictions, hospitals, or recuperation, secrets, deception or boundary issues, or research, investigations or development behind the scenes.

Finally, Venus moves into Libra on the 29th where she will tour over the weeks ahead and focus her attention on relationships. This is a lovely period for everyone to focus on romantic partners, business partners, agents, attorneys, clients, specialists, or even the opponents or competition and where you are with your Venus themes: True love, income, women, or beauty. This is the time of the year to experience these things, to attract what you need here or smooth out rough edges in relationships ongoing, and to enjoy what’s occurring a bit more so plan accordingly.

ARIES:
Your ruler, Mars, is finally exiting the dark zone of Scorpio on August 2nd and moving into Sagittarius where it will now travel until September 27th. This means that you have almost 2 months to dive in and get active about any legal matters you’d like to settle, any educational pursuits you’d like to further, your media, marketing, publishing, or broadcasting goals you’d like to achieve, your travel plans or focus on people or situations at a distance, the wedding interest before you, your religious direction, or your political needs. This all started to show you potential as far back as March but it will be the actions you take now that will set things moving, once Mars moves on it will be another 2 years before he is back on board. Saturn has been Retrograde in these same matters since Mars and he goes Direct again on August 13th so at this point the potential to solidify something concrete one way or the other is back on board as well. This makes it the time to reach out to authority types or involve them, to set new goals, look at limits, endings, commitments, responsibilities, and ambitions in the mix. By the 24th Mars and Saturn will meet on the same degree to begin in earnest together towards what you need in these matters, mark the date.

The New Moon on the 2nd is about opening up new possibilities for you or helping you take current interests to the next level when it comes to your creative endeavors and talents, your love life or lover, the children, or your recreational pursuits. Be proactive in the 2 weeks that follow this fresh start since you have more momentum now to set things in motion or seed them with potential.

 Next month we will experience a New Moon Solar Eclipse and this is a very powerful new beginning energy that has the capacity to eclipse out what is blocking progress or that has run it's course as part of the fresh start. This month the Eclipse Trigger Date falls on the 4th. That means that you may experience part or all of that new beginning energy on this preview day. Not everyone does, but if you do look for signs that something new is in the offering or can be kicked off involving health, work, animals, paperwork, co-workers, hired help, getting organized, cleaning, or with environmental interests.

There is a story that is taking place this month in another area of your life as well, your 6th house. This house is all about your job and other work you do, the people you work with or hire to help you in any facet of life, the organizing you do to help you run your life more easily, cleaning and the details you attend to, your health, animals, environmental interests, and any paperwork you are focusing on. Mercury is in this zone from the beginning of the month, helping you to think more about these matters and opening up talks, meetings, interviews, writing, agreements, sales, offers, short trips, and decisions about it. Venus will join in on the 5th onward to bring women on board or to help you attract things more easily or smooth out rough edges, to enhance by way of love, income or beauty, and bring more enjoyment overall in the weeks ahead. The Sun will then join in on the 22nd onward, kicking off a 30 day cycle that will ask you to show up and get more personally or physically involved in what you can do about these work, health, pet, paperwork, co-worker, hired help, organizing, environmental, or clean-up interests. This is putting a spotlight on you helping you to take the lead. This is also the last full month Jupiter will travel through these themes trying to help you find more happiness or prosperity, opening up potential for growth or bringing some protection around it. On the 22nd Mercury will meet with Jupiter on the same degree, an optimal day for offers, agreements, sales, interviews, writing, talks, meetings, and decisions about it. Remember Jupiter rules legal, travel, educational, media, marketing, wedding, religious, or political themes so there may be something here that can help your 6th house topics. Venus meets with Jupiter on the same degree on the 27th, another stellar day to circle on your calendar, this one for women, love, income, or beauty themes in the mix. Finally, on the 30th Mercury will Retrograde slowing things down, possibly causing a few mix-ups or glitches, and taking you back over things so you can revisit past people or situations, rework, release or reclaim things and get it right by the 22nd of September when Mercury goes Direct.

I’d like to address two other points with all this activity in the 6th house of Virgo this month. First, at one point Mercury, Venus and Jupiter will oppose Chiron in Pisces from this arena so on these days you may have the opportunity to face a wound or vulnerability with another person and to do some healing. To that end it may be important to be conscious of the days this can arise since the Pisces placement can mean we are caught unaware and don’t figure it out until later. Jupiter will oppose Chiron between the 12-16th, exact on the 13th, so look at the legal, travel, educational, media, marketing, wedding, religious, or political themes to play a part. Mercury will oppose Chiron on the 19th so look at news, talks, ideas, meetings, agreements, sales, siblings, neighbors, vehicles, short trips, local activities, electronics, writing, interviews, or decisions to play a part. Venus will oppose Chiron on the 25th so look at women, love, income, or beauty themes to play a part.

Second, both Mercury and Venus will come to sit with the North Node of Destiny in the 6th house of Virgo for the last time in 18 years this month. That means you can intentionally focus on making some choices that are pointed towards your destiny in work, with health, the paperwork, animals, environment, with co-workers, hired help, the paperwork, or how you organize, clean or simplify. Mercury will sit with the Destiny point on the 8th favoring decisions or ideas, talks or offers, agreements or sales, writing or interviews, all about these topics going forward. Venus will sit with the North Node of Destiny on the 15-16th favoring the women, income, beauty, or love themes in the mix going forward. So mark your calendars and plan on spending lots of time forwarding your interests in these areas with so much energy behind you!

The Full Moon this month falls on the 18th and for your sign will highlight some kind of climax with friends, groups, the internet, astrology, charities, gatherings, your aspirations, freedom, or original ideas. You will feel this in the days leading up to completion and want to work towards wrapping things up, endings, achievements, or celebrations here.

 Next month we will experience a second Eclipse, this one a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Pisces and this is a very powerful culmination energy that has the capacity to eclipse out what has run it's course as part of the wrap-up, ending, achievement, or celebration. This month the second Eclipse Trigger Date falls on the 19th. That means that you may experience part or all of that climactic energy on this preview day. Not everyone does, but if you do look for signs that something is reaching it's apex involving film, music, art, or other muse-related topics, prayer, meditation, yoga, or other spiritual practices, karmic/past life unions, clandestine romance, or romantic getaways, healing, dealing with addictions, hospitals, or recuperation, secrets, deception or boundary issues, or research, investigations or development behind the scenes.

The only other shift we have this month comes from Venus on the 29th as she moves into Libra. This means in the last few days of the month you may find you are drawn toward one key relationship or are starting to want to focus more on this potential. Venus can make it about love, beauty or income so feel out where you want to go with romantic partners, business partners, agents, attorneys, clients, specialists, or opponents, there will be more to show for this in September. I can’t tell you how much more you could glean in a private reading based on your personal birth data, literally the sky’s the limit!

TAURUS:
It’s likely that you began to get busy, fired up, motivated, passionate, or angry about what you needed to do about your 8th house matters back in March when Mars first arrived in Sagittarius. It may have motivated you to start in on the big financial needs like loans, inheritance, bankruptcy, insurance, taxes, commissions, investments, settlements, alimony, child support, or some other outside or shared resource. It may have also focused you on the personal side of the 8th house which is your sex life, reproductive needs, divorce, mortality issues, or third party matters. Either way, the energy then dipped out of this sign via a long retrograde and now as you enter August Mars is going to head back into Sagittarius on the 2nd in Direct motion where he will travel until September 27th. This gives you about 2 months to dive in and do what needs doing about these themes, whether that means taking action, expressing the passion or dealing with anger over it, after this date it will be a couple years before he is back around to motivate you. At the same time, Saturn Retrograded in this 8th house back in March and has slowed things down or made you focus on the past and anything serious here since. On August 13th Saturn goes Direct and this means you can now move forward with endings, commitments, responsibilities, authority figures, structures, or ambitions in the mix, your leadership abilities will get a boost in these areas. By the 24th Mars and Saturn will meet on the same degree in these subjects, a demarcation point towards the next chapter, a time to act and to cement things one way or the other.

The New Moon arrives on the 2nd opening up a 2 week window that is your opportunity to start something new or enter into the next chapter with current activities all focused on home, real estate deals, moves, renovations, family, parents, roommates, security needs, history, country, or emotional direction. Think about ways you could further your creative ventures or interests here or how you can expand upon the love. You may find ways to have fun or recreate or spend time with the kids or do for the kids in these areas, all good.

 Next month we will experience a New Moon Solar Eclipse and this is a very powerful new beginning energy that has the capacity to eclipse out what is blocking progress or that has run it's course as part of the fresh start. This month the Eclipse Trigger Date falls on the 4th. That means that you may experience part or all of that new beginning energy on this preview day. Not everyone does, but if you do look for signs that something new is in the offering or can be kicked off involving your love life, lovers, creative projects, recreational pursuits, or what's going on with children.

Now to look at what’s going on in your 5th house this month, I have to tell you it is BIG. First, your 5th house is about true love and your lovers, children, creativity, and recreation. For you the details matter, being of service, the work you perform, health and pets in the equation, people you hire or work with, and paperwork in the situation. But to simplify; it’s about love, kids, fun, and creativity. So what’s going on? Mercury is already here as the month begins so it’s time to talk, meet, think, write, focus on agreements, sales, short trips, interviews, offers, and decisions about these themes. You may also involve siblings, neighbors, vehicles, or electronics in these matters as it seems to fit for you. Jupiter is in this arena as well all month, spending his last full month here for a 12 year period. Jupiter wants you to see growth, happiness and prosperity and is working his best to bring it your way via these themes, whether that is about ways you can open these matters up via legal, educational, media, marketing, wedding, travel, foreign, wedding, religious, or political routes. Venus will enter this arena of love, kids, fun, and creativity on the 5th so at this point women can benefit, love, income and beauty are amplified around these matters, and you can smooth out rough edges or attract things more easily over the weeks ahead. The Sun enters the territory on the 22nd kicking off a 30 day cycle that urges you to show up and get more personally or physically involved in what is going on. This puts a spotlight on you and helps you to stand out and take the lead, making it about you in some new way! Then you will have 2 very special moments; one when Mercury and Jupiter meet on the same degree on the 22nd for a big decision or talk or other Mercury-themed moment about love, kids, creativity, or fun. Second, when Venus and Jupiter meet on the same degree on the 27th when love, women, beauty, or income interests are amplified about it. Finally, Mercury will Retrograde on the 30th slowing things down, possibly bringing some mix-ups or glitches, but taking you back over things to rework, release or reclaim by Sept. 22nd when Mercury goes Direct again.

I’d like to address two other points with all this activity in the 5th house of Virgo this month. First, at one point Mercury, Venus and Jupiter will oppose Chiron in Pisces from this arena so on these days you may have the opportunity to face a wound or vulnerability with another person and to do some healing. To that end it may be important to be conscious of the days this can arise since the Pisces placement can mean we are caught unaware and don’t figure it out until later.

Mercury will oppose Chiron on the 19th so look at news, talks, ideas, meetings, agreements, sales, siblings, neighbors, vehicles, short trips, local activities, electronics, writing, interviews, or decisions to play a part. Venus will oppose Chiron on the 25th so look at women, love, income, or beauty themes to play a part.

Second, both Mercury and Venus will come to sit with the North Node of Destiny in the 5th house of Virgo for the last time in 18 years this month. That means you can intentionally focus on making some choices that are pointed towards your destiny in love, with lover, your creative talents or projects, the kids, or your recreational pursuits. Mercury will sit with the Destiny point on the 8th favoring decisions or ideas, talks or offers, agreements or sales, writing or interviews, all about these topics going forward. Venus will sit with the North Node of Destiny on the 15-16th favoring the women, income, beauty, or love themes in the mix going forward. So mark your calendars and plan on spending lots of time forwarding your interests in these areas with so much energy behind you!

There’s a Full Moon on the 18th that will be about wrapping things up, marking endings, your achievements, or celebrations around personal goals, career, reputation, fame, or what’s going on with the boss, teacher, mentor, parent, judge or other authority figure. Focus on aspirations, freedom, originality, and anything social in the mix that can help you reach this high point.

Next month we will experience a second Eclipse, this one a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Pisces and this is a very powerful culmination energy that has the capacity to eclipse out what has run it's course as part of the wrap-up, ending, achievement, or celebration. This month the second Eclipse Trigger Date falls on the 19th. That means that you may experience part or all of that climactic energy on this preview day. Not everyone does, but if you do look for signs that something is reaching it's apex involving friends, groups, the internet, astrology, charities, gatherings, your aspirations, freedom, or original ideas.

The only other shift in energy arrives on the 29th when Venus moves into your 6th house. This will focus in on your work, health, pets, paperwork, hired help, co-workers, cleaning, and organizing over the weeks ahead. It may bring women on board who are beneficial, help you with income or love in the mix, focus on the beauty, or it may be about ways to attract what you’re after, smooth out rough edges and enjoy yourself more, it’s just starting! I can’t tell you how much more you could glean in a private reading based on your personal birth data, literally the sky’s the limit! If you’d like to find out the cost and the details for booking a session email zoemoonastrology@gmail.com and we’ll take that next step towards understanding.

GEMINI:
August is going to be active, Gemini, especially when it comes to your relationships. Think back to what you were starting to motivate about with partners, clients, specialists, agents, attorneys, opponents, or competitors back in March. You may have taken action, felt your passions rising or needed to deal with anger and it’s likely that whomever you were focused on that legal, travel, educational, media, marketing, wedding, religious, or political themes were at the heart of it all. Well, the activator, Mars, then Retrograded and has only recently gone Direct, finally moving back into Sagittarius on August 2nd. You’ll now be back in the action with at least one key relationship, perhaps several for the rest of this month and until Sept. 27th when Mars will finally exit this territory not to return for another 2 years. At the same time, Saturn which wants us to get real, end things, make long term commitments, handle responsibilities, structure things to support us, deal with authorities in the mix, and get ambitious by taking the lead, Retrograded in the same relationship zone back in March. He will now go Direct on the 13th allowing you to start to move forward again and into that next chapter with partners, clients, specialists, opponents, competitors, agents, attorneys, and others. Mars and Saturn will then come together on the same degree for a fresh start together on the 24th. Keep in mind that Saturn won’t be back here with Mars for at least 29 years so it’s important to get serious and take action.

There is a New Moon on the 2nd in your third house. This means a powerful 2 week window opens up now to help you start something new or to take current situations or ideas into the next level. The third house is about talks, meetings, ideas, offers, agreements, sales, writing, interviews, short trips, local activities, siblings, neighbors, vehicles, electronics, and flirtations. What can you do now to lean towards the future here?

Next month we will experience a New Moon Solar Eclipse and this is a very powerful new beginning energy that has the capacity to eclipse out what is blocking progress or that has run it's course as part of the fresh start. This month the Eclipse Trigger Date falls on the 4th. That means that you may experience part or all of that new beginning energy on this preview day. Not everyone does, but if you do look for signs that something new is in the offering or can be kicked off involving home, real estate deals, moves, renovations, family, parents, roommates, security needs, or history.

Now for the big focus for the month before you; your fourth house of home, real estate deals, moves, renovations, family, parents, roommates, history, country, security, and emotional needs. Mercury is already here when the month begins so you’ll be thinking about issues and interests here and it will help you to get into talks, meetings, agreements, sales, writing, offers, interviews, short trips, local activities, siblings, neighbors, vehicles, and electronics about them. Jupiter is also already here for the month, spending his last full month here for another 12 years. Jupiter wants to help you find growth, happiness or prosperity and may help you get there via work, paperwork, hired help, animals, health related pursuits, and the legal, educational, media, marketing, wedding, travel, religious, or political interests in the mix. Venus will enter into the picture on the 5th so from this point onward women may benefit you, there may be more love, income or beauty opportunities, or you may find you can attract what you’re after more easily, smooth out rough edges or just enjoy yourself more. The Sun then enters your fourth house on the 22nd where he will tour for the next 30 days. This is about you now starting to show up and get more personally or physically involved in the home, with the real estate deals, moves, renovations, with the family, parents, roommates, history, country, security needs, or emotional needs. Next there are 2 special moments on tap, one when Mercury and Jupiter get together on the same degree on the 22nd opening up big opportunity via communications or decisions about it, and two when Venus and Jupiter meet on the same degree on the 27th opening up the love, income, women, or beauty themes in the mix in some big way. Finally Mercury is going to Retrograde on the 30th slowing things down, possibly bringing some mix-ups or glitches and taking you back over details so you can get things right by Sept. 22nd when Mercury goes Direct.

I’d like to address two other points with all this activity in the 4th house of Virgo this month. First, at one point Mercury, Venus and Jupiter will oppose Chiron in Pisces from this arena so on these days you may have the opportunity to face a wound or vulnerability with another person and to do some healing. To that end it may be important to be conscious of the days this can arise since the Pisces placement can mean we are caught unaware and don’t figure it out until later.

Venus will oppose Chiron on the 25th so look at women, love, income, or beauty themes to play a part.

Second, both Mercury and Venus will come to sit with the North Node of Destiny in the 4th house of Virgo for the last time in 18 years this month. That means you can intentionally focus on making some choices that are pointed towards your destiny with home, real estate deals, moves, renovations, family, parents, roommates, country, history, security, or emotional needs. Mercury will sit with the Destiny point on the 8th favoring decisions or ideas, talks or offers, agreements or sales, writing or interviews, all about these topics going forward. Venus will sit with the North Node of Destiny on the 15-16th favoring the women, income, beauty, or love themes in the mix going forward. So mark your calendars and plan on spending lots of time forwarding your interests in these areas with so much energy behind you!

The Full Moon arrives on the 18th which is the about things climaxing with travel, people at a distance, legalities, education, media, marketing, publishing, weddings, religion, or politics. Look at how you can bring about endings, wrap things up, achieve your desires, or celebrate via these themes. Set your aspirations high and if you can involve social factors, originality or freedom in the mix, so much the better.

 Next month we will experience a second Eclipse, this one a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Pisces and this is a very powerful culmination energy that has the capacity to eclipse out what has run it's course as part of the wrap-up, ending, achievement, or celebration. This month the second Eclipse Trigger Date falls on the 19th. That means that you may experience part or all of that climactic energy on this preview day. Not everyone does, but if you do look for signs that something is reaching it's apex involving your career, personal goals, reputation, fame, or what's going on with the boss, parent, judge, mentor, or other authority figures.

Finally, Venus moves into Libra on the 29th which will mark the beginning of a lovely trend for you over the weeks ahead in love, with kids, your creative projects, or recreational pursuits. Venus may bring women on board who benefit you here, draw the love, income or beauty to the matter, help you smooth things out, attract what you’re after more easily, or just bring more enjoyment with them, sweet.

CANCER:
So Cancer, what was going on back in March? Were you motivated to do something, reacting to what was occurring, heating up passions, or dealing with anger that pushed you over health matters, work, paperwork, hired help, co-workers, pets, cleaning, or organizing? Well, starting on the 2nd of August Mars is back in gear over these themes and plans on pushing you into these matters again over the next 2 months, exiting on Sept. 27th. This may seem like a long time but once Mars exits he won’t return for 2 years so you want to take advantage of what you can motivate about now keeping in mind that Sagittarius where Mars tours can lend legal, travel, educational, media, marketing, wedding, religious, or political themes to what you’re trying to do here. At the same time, Saturn went Retrograde in March over the same matters and has slowed things down or asked you to look at past matters since then. On the 13th Saturn will go Direct and you can now get serious about the next chapter via structures, endings, commitments, responsibilities, authority figures, and ambitions in the mix. So see how you can get real about your work, health, pets, paperwork, hired help, co-workers, organizing, or cleaning going forward. On the 24th Mars and Saturn meet on the same degree which means all of this energy comes together for a fresh start built on what you do and where you get real. And just a note to consider, Saturn won’t be back here with Mars for another 29 years.

The New Moon arrives on the 2nd opening up a powerful 2 week window that can take you into something new or help you to move into the next chapter with current income situations, what you’re doing with possessions or your purchases. Look at how you can bring your creativity into the mix, focus on the love or kids, or make it fun, it’s time to be proactive about where you’d like to go with earnings, possessions or purchases.

Next month we will experience a New Moon Solar Eclipse and this is a very powerful new beginning energy that has the capacity to eclipse out what is blocking progress or that has run it's course as part of the fresh start. This month the Eclipse Trigger Date falls on the 4th. That means that you may experience part or all of that new beginning energy on this preview day. Not everyone does, but if you do look for signs that something new is in the offering or can be kicked off involving news, talks, meetings, agreements, sales, writing, interviews, offers, siblings, neighbors, local activities, short trips, vehicles, electronics, or decisions.

OK, now for a major focus for your month on your third house. The third house rules communications, so talks, meetings, offers, interviews, writing, agreements, sales, ideas, and decisions will be amplified. The third house also ruled neighbors, siblings, short trips, local activities, vehicles, and electronics, so you will also see more energy around these themes as well this month. It breaks down like this; Mercury is in this arena as the month begins and stays throughout, ruling these topics and bringing more intensity or activity to it all. Jupiter is also here in his ongoing tour in these matters trying to bring some growth, happiness or prosperity to the forefront via a focus on legal, travel, educational, media, marketing, wedding, religious, or political themes and any work you do, health focus, animal focus, paperwork, hired help, or co-workers in the mix. This is Jupiter’s last full month here for another 12 years so make the most of your communications and other third house topics. Venus enters the picture on the 5th bringing women on board who may benefit what you’re doing or open up the love, income or beauty themes in the mix, helping you attract, smooth out and enjoy things as you go the rest of the month. Then the Sun enters on the 22nd kicking off a 30 day cycle that will urge you to show up and get more personally or physically involved in those talks, meetings, agreements, sales, writing, interviews, offers, short trips, local activities, with siblings, neighbors, vehicles, electronics, or decisions. This puts a spotlight on you and helps you make it about your needs or to take the lead. There will be two stand-out moments; one when Mercury and Jupiter meet on the same degree here on the 22nd going big with the opportunity to communicate or start fresh with the potential, and two when Venus and Jupiter meet on the same degree on the 27th bringing the woman, love, beauty, or income into the equation in a big way. Finally, Mercury will Retrograde on the 30th and things will slow down or you may experience some mix-ups or glitches and you start to go back over everything so you can get it right between now and Sept. 22nd when Mercury goes Direct again.

I’d like to address two other points with all this activity in the 3rd house of Virgo this month. First, at one point, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter will oppose Chiron in Pisces from this arena so on these days you may have the opportunity to face a wound or vulnerability with another person and to do some healing. To that end it may be important to be conscious of the days this can arise since the Pisces placement can mean we are caught unaware and don’t figure it out until later. Jupiter will oppose Chiron between the 12-16th, exact on the 13th, so look at the legal, travel, educational, media, marketing, wedding, religious, or political themes to play a part. Mercury will oppose Chiron on the 19th so look at news, talks, ideas, meetings, agreements, sales, siblings, neighbors, vehicles, short trips, local activities, electronics, writing, interviews, or decisions to play a part. Venus will oppose Chiron on the 25th so look at women, love, income, or beauty themes to play a part.

Second, both Mercury and Venus will come to sit with the North Node of Destiny in the 3rd house of Virgo for the last time in 18 years this month. That means you can intentionally focus on making some choices that are pointed towards your destiny in local matters, short trips, writing, with siblings, neighbors, agreements, sales, talks, meetings, ideas, interviews, with vehicles, electronics, or decisions. Mercury will sit with the Destiny point on the 8th favoring decisions or ideas, talks or offers, agreements or sales, writing or interviews, all about these topics going forward. Venus will sit with the North Node of Destiny on the 15-16th favoring the women, income, beauty, or love themes in the mix going forward. So mark your calendars and plan on spending lots of time forwarding your interests in these areas with so much energy behind you!

The Full Moon on the 18th is about something climaxing in your financial arena, with sexual interests, reproductive needs, the divorce, mortality issues, a birth, your personal empowerment, a power struggle, controlling interests, or third party matters. So look at wrapping things up, marking endings, your achievements, or celebrations in these areas and how you can aim your aspirations or involve social systems, freedom or original needs in the mix to bring it to fruition.

 Next month we will experience a second Eclipse, this one a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Pisces and this is a very powerful culmination energy that has the capacity to eclipse out what has run it's course as part of the wrap-up, ending, achievement, or celebration. This month the second Eclipse Trigger Date falls on the 19th. That means that you may experience part or all of that climactic energy on this preview day. Not everyone does, but if you do look for signs that something is reaching it's apex involving legal matters, educational pursuits, weddings, media ventures, marketing, publishing, broadcasting, travel, people at a distance, foreign interests, import/export, religion, or politics.

Finally, Venus will move into Libra on the 29th which starts several weeks of a more lovely and enjoyable time on the home front, with real estate deals, moves, renovations, family, parents, or roommates. You may find that women are benefiting you here more now or that the love, income or beauty themes are in flow. It should help you to attract what you desire more easily, smooth out rough edges and enjoy what’s going on. I can’t tell you how much more you could glean in a private reading based on your personal birth data, literally the sky’s the limit!

LEO:
August is going to be active, Leo! First, it’s back on with hyped up activities, passion or anger involving your creative ventures, recreational pursuits, kids, or lovers/love life. Think back to when things started to heat up last March and you had a couple months to move on some of these interests. Now it’s time between August 2nd and Sept. 27th to take advantage of the momentum you can get to motivate about your needs here. This may involve travel, legal, educational, media, marketing, wedding, religious, or political interests in the mix to get you there. Saturn went Retrograde over these same topics in March and has either slowed things down or asked that you focus on the past serious side of these matters since then. Now on the 13th Saturn goes Direct so that means you can get serious, make commitments, mark endings, structure things to support you, tackle responsibilities, deal with the establishment or authority types, and get ambitious moving forward into the next chapter. Mars and Saturn will then come together on the same degree on the 24th marking the fresh start based on these actions and serious decisions moving forward. Note that Mars won’t return here for another 2 years, Saturn for another 29 years, so make it count.

The New Moon on the 2nd opens up a powerful 2 week window that can help you to launch forward on a personal or physical level since it is in your sign! Think about where you’d like to go with your image, brand, name, title, or body, and what personal needs you’d like to pursue. Get creative, involve love or kids, have fun, it’s your time.

Next month we will experience a New Moon Solar Eclipse and this is a very powerful new beginning energy that has the capacity to eclipse out what is blocking progress or that has run it's course as part of the fresh start. This month the Eclipse Trigger Date falls on the 4th. That means that you may experience part or all of that new beginning energy on this preview day. Not everyone does, but if you do look for signs that something new is in the offering or can be kicked off involving income, purchases, possessions, products, or what you value/how you are valued.

Now for the major area of focus this month! Your second house is going to be lit up over the top in August which means it’s time to dive in and get busy with income, purchases and possessions. Mercury is already here as the month begins and will remain so making it the perfect time to head into talks, meetings, agreements, sales, writing, interviews, offers, or decisions about these matters. You may involve siblings, neighbors, vehicles, electronics, local activities, or short trips as well. Jupiter is also here as the month begins doing his part to help you grow, find happiness or prosperity in these income, possessions or purchases arenas. With Jupiter you may be able to involve legal, travel, educational, media, marketing, wedding, religious, or political themes to help. This is Jupiter’s last full month here for another 12 years so opt in. Venus arrives on the scene on the 5th to bring women on board who can benefit you or to amp up the love, income or beauty themes in the mix, smooth out rough edges, attract what you’re after or bring more enjoyment for the rest of the month with your purchases, income and possessions. The Sun then shows up over these topics on the 22nd kicking off a 30 day cycle that urges you to show up and get more personally or physically involved in earning, purchases and possessions, putting a spotlight on you and helping you stand out and take the lead. There are two big days when Mercury and Jupiter meet on the same degree here on the 22nd opening up those communications and opportunities, and when Venus and Jupiter meet on the 24th bringing the love, women, income, or beauty theme to some new potential. Finally, Mercury Retrogrades on the 30th which will start to slow things down and may bring some mix-ups or glitches and then start you down the road to review, rework, release, or reconnect to get things right. You’ll have until Sept. 22nd when Mercury goes Direct to figure it out.

I’d like to address two other points with all this activity in the 2nd house of Virgo this month. First, at one point Mercury, Venus and Jupiter will oppose Chiron in Pisces from this arena so on these days you may have the opportunity to face a wound or vulnerability with another person and to do some healing. To that end it may be important to be conscious of the days this can arise since the Pisces placement can mean we are caught unaware and don’t figure it out until later. Jupiter will oppose Chiron between the 12-16th, exact on the 13th, so look at the legal, travel, educational, media, marketing, wedding, religious, or political themes to play a part. Mercury will oppose Chiron on the 19th so look at news, talks, ideas, meetings, agreements, sales, siblings, neighbors, vehicles, short trips, local activities, electronics, writing, interviews, or decisions to play a part. Venus will oppose Chiron on the 25th so look at women, love, income, or beauty themes to play a part.

Second, both Mercury and Venus will come to sit with the North Node of Destiny in the 2nd house of Virgo for the last time in 18 years this month. That means you can intentionally focus on making some choices that are pointed towards your destiny with income, possessions or purchases. Mercury will sit with the Destiny point on the 8th favoring decisions or ideas, talks or offers, agreements or sales, writing or interviews, all about these topics going forward. Venus will sit with the North Node of Destiny on the 15-16th favoring the women, income, beauty, or love themes in the mix going forward. So mark your calendars and plan on spending lots of time forwarding your interests in these areas with so much energy behind you!

The Full Moon on the 18th brings a high point for you with a partner, client, specialist, agent, attorney, competitor, opponent, or other relationship. It may also bring something to a climax via justice, balance or higher esthetics. Think about your aspirations and any social influence, original ideas, cause, or your freedom in the mix and then expect to see things wrap up, ending, achieved, or celebrated with these relationships.

 Next month we will experience a second Eclipse, this one a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Pisces and this is a very powerful culmination energy that has the capacity to eclipse out what has run it's course as part of the wrap-up, ending, achievement, or celebration. This month the second Eclipse Trigger Date falls on the 19th. That means that you may experience part or all of that climactic energy on this preview day. Not everyone does, but if you do look for signs that something is reaching it's apex involving your sex life, reproductive needs, mortality issues, a birth, the divorce, third party scenarios, or any major financial matters like the loan, debt, inheritance, bankruptcy, taxes, insurance, investments, settlements, alimony, partner's money, or child support.

Finally, Venus moves into Libra on the 29th where she will focus her love, income, beauty, and women themes on your communications zone. This means that over the weeks ahead you’ll do well in talks, meetings, with agreements, sales, writing, interviews, with offers, siblings, neighbors, vehicles, electronics, short trips, local activities, and decisions as Venus smooths things out or helps you attract the good stuff, enjoy. I can’t tell you how much more you could glean in a private reading based on your personal birth data, literally the sky’s the limit!

VIRGO:
August is opening up with a focus on the things you were motivated, passionate or angry about back between March and May. That’s because Mars is back in gear from the 2nd until Sept. 27th, almost 2 more months to get it right when it comes to your home, real estate deals, moves, renovations, security needs, end of some matter, family, parent, roommate, or emotional needs. It seems you still need to tackle the legal, educational, media, marketing, travel, wedding, religious, or political needs in the mix, so hit the ground running, once Mars exits he won’t return for another 2 years. At the same time, Saturn Retrograded in March over these same themes and on August 13th he will go Direct again. So Saturn will help you get real and move forward again with endings, commitments, structures, authority figures, responsibilities, or ambitions about home, family, real estate deals, moves, renovations, parents, roommates, and security needs from this point onward. The two energies meet on the 24th marking the fresh start between them and another cosmic boost when it comes to taking action and cementing things one way or the other.

The New Moon on the 2nd opens up the best 2 week window of the year to launch into that next chapter or start something new involving healing, dealing with addictions, hospitals, research, investigations, karmic or past life romance, romantic getaways, spiritual practices like prayer, meditation or yoga, magical interests, psychic abilities, artistic talents or projects such as painting, film, music, dance, or sculpture, poetry, or inner development and rest. Look into your creative direction, ways to have fun or involve your lover or the kids for best results.

 Next month we will experience a New Moon Solar Eclipse and this is a very powerful new beginning energy that has the capacity to eclipse out what is blocking progress or that has run it's course as part of the fresh start. This month the Eclipse Trigger Date falls on the 4th. That means that you may experience part or all of that new beginning energy on this preview day. Not everyone does, but if you do look for signs that something new is in the offering or can be kicked off involving your body, image, brand, name, title, identity, or personal goals.

Now for something truly amazing…August is going to start to pour energy through your sign at a level you haven’t seen in some time and won’t again for another 12 years. That means that the more you make it about you, your body, image, brand, name, title, or personal needs and desires, the better you are going to do and that the things you are seeding now have real momentum behind them. First, the month starts with Mercury, your ruler, already in your sign. This means when focusing on you and your needs the talks, meetings, agreements, sales, writing, interviews, offers, and decisions are with you, and in truth, due to Mercury Retrograding on the 30th, Mercury will be staying in your sign a very long time, until Oct. 7th, so you’ll have plenty of time to get it right. Next, Jupiter has been touring your sign for almost a year now and this is his last full month in your sign, he will exit on Sept. 9th not to return for another 12 years. To that end you want to make the most of his ability to protect, seed growth, happiness, and prosperity, all aimed at and through you right now. Focus in on Jupiter themes of legal, educational, media, marketing, travel, foreign, distant, wedding, religious, or political interests as well as Virgo themes of health, work, paperwork, organizing, details, hired help, co-workers, animals, and the environment, when looking for ways to expand your own horizons. On the 5th Venus will move into Virgo for the rest of the month (until the 29th), and her presence means women may benefit you in some way, you’ll have a stronger ability to attract good things, the love or income or beauty needs are tied to you and your image, body, etc, and you may be able to smooth things out that might have been an issue in the past. The Sun moves into Virgo on the 22nd which marks a 30 day cycle that will put a spotlight on you and urge you to show up and get more personally or physically involved in all of these topics that favor you. It’s a time when others will notice you and you can take the lead more readily towards your own ends. Then there are 2 dates that stand out, one is the 22nd because Mercury and Jupiter will meet on the same degree in your sign, magnifying the good and taking things bigger with communications, ideas, news, and decisions. The other favored day is the 27th when Venus and Jupiter come together on the same degree to take something big with the women, love, income, or beauty themes. Finally, as noted above, Mercury Retrogrades on the 30th so things may slow down now to start taking you back over any details so you get things right between now and the 22nd of September when Mercury goes Direct. It can also mean a few mix-ups or glitches around this date so take care, but do be willing to hear from old people or revisit old ideas or situations and give the do-over phase what it needs so you are ready to hit the ground running with the New Moon Solar Eclipse that will propel you even further come September.

I’d like to address two other points with all this activity in your sign of Virgo this month. First, at one point Mercury, Venus and Jupiter will oppose Chiron in Pisces from this arena so on these days you may have the opportunity to face a wound or vulnerability with another person and to do some healing. To that end it may be important to be conscious of the days this can arise since the Pisces placement can mean we are caught unaware and don’t figure it out until later. Jupiter will oppose Chiron between the 12-16th, exact on the 13th, so look at the legal, travel, educational, media, marketing, wedding, religious, or political themes to play a part. Mercury will oppose Chiron on the 19th so look at news, talks, ideas, meetings, agreements, sales, siblings, neighbors, vehicles, short trips, local activities, electronics, writing, interviews, or decisions to play a part. Venus will oppose Chiron on the 25th so look at women, love, income, or beauty themes to play a part. Again, at the core of all of these impacts is your healing, work, paperwork, organizing, hired help, co-workers, and what it is you are focusing on with your body, image, brand, name, title, or personal goals.

Second, both Mercury and Venus will come to sit with the North Node of Destiny in the sign of Virgo for the last time in 18 years this month. That means you can intentionally focus on making some choices that are pointed towards your destiny with your needs, body, brand, image, name, title, or desires. Mercury will sit with the Destiny point on the 8th favoring decisions or ideas, talks or offers, agreements or sales, writing or interviews, all about these topics going forward. Venus will sit with the North Node of Destiny on the 15-16th favoring the women, income, beauty, or love themes in the mix going forward. So mark your calendars and plan on spending lots of time forwarding your interests in these areas with so much energy behind you!

The Full Moon on the 18th is about a culmination around a health matter, the job, your co-workers, hired help, paperwork, pets, organizing, cleaning, or environmental interests. This is when something involving your aspirations or a social venue like via your friends, a group, the internet, astrology, charities, or gatherings, is coming to a peak. You may be wrapping things up, marking endings, noting your achievements, garnering some recognition, or celebrating.

Next month we will experience a second Eclipse, this one a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Pisces and this is a very powerful culmination energy that has the capacity to eclipse out what has run it's course as part of the wrap-up, ending, achievement, or celebration. This month the second Eclipse Trigger Date falls on the 19th. That means that you may experience part or all of that climactic energy on this preview day. Not everyone does, but if you do look for signs that something is reaching it's apex involving romantic partners, business partners, clients, specialists, agents, attorneys, opponents, competitors, or advocates.

Finally, Venus moves into Libra on the 29th which will kick off a trend that focuses on your income, purchases or possessions. Venus here over the weeks ahead should bring some good things your way and again can benefit you via women, the love in the mix, beauty, or the enjoyment level. Start early. I can’t tell you how much more you could glean in a private reading based on your personal birth data, literally the sky’s the limit!

LIBRA:
Get ready to get busier in your local community or neighborhood, on short trips, with siblings, neighbors, vehicles, electronics, writing, agreements, sales, interviews, meetings, talks, and decisions this month, Libra! Mars is moving in to start heating up the action here on August 2nd and will remain revved up about these themes until Sept. 27th. That means it’s time to do something about these matters or perhaps you’ll feel more passionate about these themes or your ideas now and driven to get motivated. Mars can also stir anger and fights so watch for outbursts while out on the road or when dealing with these themes so as not to escalate things. Mars began this story about these matters back in March - May but then Retrograded into Scorpio, so now you will be back in the game and want to take advantage of how much energy this gives you to tackle what needs doing. Saturn went Retrograde in March in these same topics and now on the 13th is going to go Direct again. This adds to the story, now giving you the potential to start to move forward with the goals or career agenda in the mix or to make commitments, mark endings, set up structures that support, move forward with responsibilities, authority figures in the mix or your ambitions about it! Note that on the 24th Mars and Saturn will come together on the same degree about these topics giving a fresh start with the activities and serious side of things moving ahead, it may be an important day in these events.

The New Moon on the 2nd is about taking things to the next level, starting something new or doors opening for you in the area of friends, associates, groups, the internet, gatherings, astrology, charities, original ideas, freedom, or your aspirations. There is a 2 week window from this day onward that gives you more momentum behind what you move forward with in these areas so be proactive and remember that Leo energy is behind it, meaning the more you focus on the love, kids, creativity, or fun in the mix, the better you will fare.

 Next month we will experience a New Moon Solar Eclipse and this is a very powerful new beginning energy that has the capacity to eclipse out what is blocking progress or that has run it's course as part of the fresh start. This month the Eclipse Trigger Date falls on the 4th. That means that you may experience part or all of that new beginning energy on this preview day. Not everyone does, but if you do look for signs that something new is in the offering or can be kicked off involving film, music, art, or other muse-related themes, prayer, meditation, yoga, or other spiritual practices, healing, dealing with addictions, hospitals, or recuperation, past life/karmic unions, clandestine romance, or romantic getaways, or research, investigations, or development behind the scenes.

The Virgo part of the sky is going to really be the big deal focus for everyone this month with so much going on here it’s hard to believe you won’t benefit from some of it. The focus for you will be on 12th house matters so you really want to think about what you can get involved with 1) Artistically: film, music, painting, poetry, dance, museums, concerts, theaters, sculpture, or other muse related interests. 2) Spirituality: prayer, meditation, yoga, or other practices that touch your divinity. 3) Romantically: fantasy, romantic getaways, clandestine romance, past life/karmic unions. 4) Behind the scenes efforts: research, investigations, development. 5) Healing: dealing with hospitals, spas, retreats, rest, recuperation, bad habits, or addictions. Let’s look at what’s going on here. First, Mercury is here as the month begins and will stay focused on these themes much longer than the norm thanks to an upcoming Retrograde, he is going to be here until Oct. 7th! So that means you have what it takes to get into the talks, meetings, writing, agreements, sales, short trips, ideas, offers, and decisions about these matters right now and the rest of the month. Jupiter is spending is last full month on these topics, exiting on Sept 9th and not returning for another 12 years so you REALLY want to take advantage of the potential for growth, luck, happiness, or prosperity that he is adding to the equation via legal, travel, educational, media, marketing, wedding, religious, or political channels. Ask yourself what you can do about any of this to expand your horizons in the artistic, spiritual, romantic, research, or healing realms this month. Venus then joins in for the first time this year on the 5th and will bring her ability to attract good things, smooth out rough edges, bring women who may benefit the situation, or a nice focus on the love, income or beauty in the matter from now until the 29th. The Sun then joins in on the 22nd kicking off a new 30 day cycle on these topics that will support you showing up and getting more personally or physically involved in these themes as well as in taking the lead and making it more about you, your name, title, image, brand, body, or interests about it. Two amazing days will be the 22nd when Mercury and Jupiter come together on the same degree making it the day for offers, decisions, agreements, and ideas about these artistic, spiritual, romantic, healing, or research themes, and the 27th when Venus and Jupiter will meet on the same degree to enhance the love, income, women, or beauty themes in the mix. As noted above, Mercury will then Retrograde on the 30th and so you may start to notice some slow-downs, mix-ups or glitches at this point and you will start to get a do-over to reconnect, release, rework, or rethink things so you get them right by the time Mercury is Direct again on the 22nd of Sept.

I’d like to address two other points with all this activity in the 12th house of Virgo ruling the artistic, spiritual, romantic, healing, and research themes this month. First, at one point Mercury, Venus and Jupiter will oppose Chiron in Pisces from this arena so on these days you may have the opportunity to face a wound or vulnerability with another person and to do some healing. To that end it may be important to be conscious of the days this can arise since the Pisces placement can mean we are caught unaware and don’t figure it out until later. Jupiter will oppose Chiron between the 12-16th, exact on the 13th, so look at the legal, travel, educational, media, marketing, wedding, religious, or political themes to play a part. Mercury will oppose Chiron on the 19th so look at news, talks, ideas, meetings, agreements, sales, siblings, neighbors, vehicles, short trips, local activities, electronics, writing, interviews, or decisions to play a part. Venus will oppose Chiron on the 25th so look at women, love, income, or beauty themes to play a part.

Second, both Mercury and Venus will come to sit with the North Node of Destiny in your 12th house of Virgo for the last time in 18 years this month. That means you can intentionally focus on making some choices that are pointed towards your destiny with artistic, spiritual, romantic, healing, and research matters. Mercury will sit with the Destiny point on the 8th favoring decisions or ideas, talks or offers, agreements or sales, writing or interviews, all about these topics going forward. Venus will sit with the North Node of Destiny on the 15-16th favoring the women, income, beauty, or love themes in the mix going forward. So mark your calendars and plan on spending lots of time forwarding your interests in these areas with so much energy behind you!

The Full Moon on the 18th is about climactic high-points with lovers, your love life, the kids, your creative endeavors, and recreational pursuits. This is when things are wrapping up, ending, achieved, or celebrated. Look at your aspirations in the mix and where you are with the original ideas, freedom themes, friendships, group activities, gatherings, and causes, and then work towards what you’d like to see come through or wrap up leading up to this pinnacle.

Next month we will experience a second Eclipse, this one a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Pisces and this is a very powerful culmination energy that has the capacity to eclipse out what has run it's course as part of the wrap-up, ending, achievement, or celebration. This month the second Eclipse Trigger Date falls on the 19th. That means that you may experience part or all of that climactic energy on this preview day. Not everyone does, but if you do look for signs that something is reaching it's apex involving your work, health, animals, paperwork, hired help, co-workers, getting organized, cleaning, or environmental interests.

Finally, Venus enters your sign on the 29th which is a lovely energy to host in one’s sign. This will last until September 23rd and is a great time to focus on yourself and what Venus can bring; love, beauty, income, or women to help you out. You may be more physically pursuing or expressing love, focus on your image or brand and updating beauty interests or getting the new head shots done, new wardrobe, hair style, or make-over. It can be the best time to charm others and get involved in money-making interests, or to just plain enjoy yourself more during this phase, sweet! I can’t tell you how much more you could glean in a private reading based on your personal birth data, literally the sky’s the limit!

SCORPIO:
August is going to light your energy, drive and activities back up to make money, do something with your possessions or products and to make purchases. You started with this heightened drive about these themes back between March and May but then Mars retrograded into your sign and you may have needed to work on yourself or slow down and get strategic for a bit. Now on the 2nd Mars is back to heat things up in these earning, spending and possessions arenas and he will keep things on a heightened level until Sept. 27th. So it’s go time, no dawdling. Your best bets for moving forward in these arenas will likely be through making things legal or dealing with legal needs, focusing on educational pursuits that can take you further, making it about the media, marketing, broadcasting, or publishing interests, traveling or dealing with people at a distance, focusing on wedding themes, religion, or politics, and ways to expand your horizons. Saturn went Retrograde in these same themes of income, purchases and possessions back in March and now on the 13th he is going to go Direct so you will at this point be able to start to turn towards your future with these matters and move into new or next level commitments, responsibilities, dealings with authority figures, endings, or ambitions in the mix. Note that on the 24th Mars and Saturn come together on the same degree which may make this an important day for your income, purchases or possessions and the fresh start these two are bringing via the actions and serious choices.

The New Moon on the 2nd opens up your best 2 week window of the year to launch into something new, take current things to the next level or start to see doors opening when it comes to your career, reputation, fame, personal goals, and dealings with higher-ups like the boss, parent, mentor, judge, or other authority type. This is in the Leo arena so you want to bring your creativity, love, focus on kids, or fun to move things forward. Be proactive and go for the brass ring.

Next month we will experience a New Moon Solar Eclipse and this is a very powerful new beginning energy that has the capacity to eclipse out what is blocking progress or that has run it's course as part of the fresh start. This month the Eclipse Trigger Date falls on the 4th. That means that you may experience part or all of that new beginning energy on this preview day. Not everyone does, but if you do look for signs that something new is in the offering or can be kicked off involving friends, groups, the internet, astrology, charities, gatherings, your aspirations, freedom, or original ideas.

Now for the really big stuff in the month of August. I’ve hardly ever seen so much coming together to help you when it comes to your 11th house topics: personal aspirations, freedom, inventions, original ideas, friends, groups, the internet, astrology, charities, social networking, and gatherings. First, Mercury is here as the month commences and he is staying way longer than the norm thanks to his Retrograde at the end of the month, in fact Mercury will be highlighting these topics until Oct. 7th. That means this is THE time to talk, meet, write, sign agreements, make sales, interview, pitch ideas, and make decisions pertaining to goals, career and authority figures. Yes, things will start to slow a bit mid-month and then for real on the 30th when Mercury Retrogrades but there will be good things in that do-over phase so if you have new agreements or decisions to make jump in before mid-month and let the rest play out as its meant to go. Jupiter has been in these part of the sky since last year but spends his last full month here in August, exiting on Sept. 9th and not to return for another 12 years. So that means you want to take advantage of his ability to bring growth, luck, happiness, or prosperity around these aspirations, friends, groups, internet pursuits, gatherings, astrological interests, or charities, right now. Look at how you can involve work or health or pet interests and what you can do via travel, media, legal, educational, wedding, religious, or political channels to expand your horizons. Venus then moves into these topics on the 6th and will tour here until the 29th this month. She is great for making everything more enjoyable, smoothing out rough edges and attracting the good stuff via these themes. She may bring women who benefit you, the love, income, or beauty to the stage as well. The Sun then joins in on the 22nd, kicking off a new 30 day cycle that puts a spotlight on you in these social arenas and with your aspirations. This is your cue to start showing up and getting more involved on a personal or physical level, you will stand out. Note two very big days for all of this are the 22nd when Mercury and Jupiter get together on the same degree for a big meeting, idea, offer, talk, agreement, sale, interview, or decision, and then on the 27th when Venus and Jupiter get together on the same degree to bring the love, income, woman, or beauty interests through. Mercury will then Retrograde on the 30th so things will slow down or you may have mix-ups or glitches around this time and then you will start to reconnect, release, rework, or rethink things so you get it right by Sept. 22nd when Mercury Retrograde ends.

I’d like to address two other points with all this activity in the 11th house of Virgo this month. First, at one point Mercury, Venus and Jupiter will oppose Chiron in Pisces from this arena so on these days you may have the opportunity to face a wound or vulnerability with another person and to do some healing. This will play out over your aspirations, freedom, original ideas, friends, groups, the internet, astrology, charities, or gatherings. To that end it may be important to be conscious of the days this can arise since the Pisces placement can mean we are caught unaware and don’t figure it out until later. Jupiter will oppose Chiron between the 12-16th, exact on the 13th, so look at the legal, travel, educational, media, marketing, wedding, religious, or political themes to play a part. Mercury will oppose Chiron on the 19th so look at news, talks, ideas, meetings, agreements, sales, siblings, neighbors, vehicles, short trips, local activities, electronics, writing, interviews, or decisions to play a part. Venus will oppose Chiron on the 25th so look at women, love, income, or beauty themes to play a part.

Second, both Mercury and Venus will come to sit with the North Node of Destiny in the 11th house of Virgo for the last time in 18 years this month. That means you can intentionally focus on making some choices that are pointed towards your destiny with aspirations, friends, freedom, originality, groups, the internet, astrology, charities, or gatherings. Mercury will sit with the Destiny point on the 8th favoring decisions or ideas, talks or offers, agreements or sales, writing or interviews, all about these topics going forward. Venus will sit with the North Node of Destiny on the 15-16th favoring the women, income, beauty, or love themes in the mix going forward. So mark your calendars and plan on spending lots of time forwarding your interests in these areas with so much energy behind you!

The Full Moon on the 18th is about some peak on the home front, with family, the real estate deal, move, renovation, parent, roommate, security needs, emotional needs, history, or country. It’s the culmination of what you’ve been working towards as things wrap up or end or it’s about your achievements or celebrations here. Social situations will likely be a big part of it so you may be doing something with your internet or friends, a group or gathering in the mix and if not then focus this Aquarius vibe on your freedom, aspirations or original ideas in the mix.

Next month we will experience a second Eclipse, this one a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Pisces and this is a very powerful culmination energy that has the capacity to eclipse out what has run it's course as part of the wrap-up, ending, achievement, or celebration. This month the second Eclipse Trigger Date falls on the 19th. That means that you may experience part or all of that climactic energy on this preview day. Not everyone does, but if you do look for signs that something is reaching it's apex involving the kids, your creative ventures, your love life, the lover, or your recreational pursuits.

Venus enters Libra on the 29th so this starts a trend of love, women, income, and beauty interests playing out behind the scenes, in clandestine romances, karmic/past life unions, romantic getaways, artistic projects, spiritual practices, healing, hospitals, and research. Things should smooth out or you may have an enhanced ability to attract the good things in these areas between now and Sept23rd when Venus moves on into your sign! I can’t tell you how much more you could glean in a private reading based on your personal birth data, literally the sky’s the limit!

SAGITTARIUS:
August may be one of your best months this year, Sage! First, Mars is coming back to your sign on August 2nd and will tour here until Sept. 27th. You first got a glimpse of what his added heat could do for you back in March-May but then he retrograded out of your sign and into Scorpio for a while. So now that he’s back you can use this amplified motivation, action, passion, and fighting spirit to go for what it is you want on a personal level, with your body, image, brand, name, or title, and put yourself out there competitively in front of the crowd. The only caveat is that you may feel hotheaded from time to time so figure out a way to work-out or do something physical to work off that extra steam. I probably don’t need to tell you but Sage topics will be enhanced for you as well so you may want to get busy on legal, travel, educational, media, marketing, wedding, religious, or political themes that boost your story. Now, Mars is not the only one active in your sign this month. Saturn went Retrograde in March so you’ve been a bit held back or looking back since then when it comes to the serious stuff but now on the 13th he goes Direct again. So at this point you can start to see a turnaround with endings, commitments, limits, responsibilities, authority figures you are dealing with, and your ambitions moving forward. Now you can get real about that next step. Note that on the 24th Mars and Saturn will meet on the same degree setting off in a new round of action and serious focus, plan accordingly.

The New Moon on the 2nd is your cue to launch into something new, step into that next chapter in something current or look for doors opening up for you in areas of legal, travel, educational, media, marketing, wedding, religious, or political arenas. This is so good for you since you have some cross-over with Mars and Saturn working in these areas this month as well. With the New Moon you will have 2 weeks from this date to seed that new approach, project, idea, or decision or to start that next thing if you want it to have legs moving forward so be proactive and go for it. Also, this is a Leo energy so the more creative, focused on love, lovers, kids, or recreation you are in the mix, the better you will do.

 Next month we will experience a New Moon Solar Eclipse and this is a very powerful new beginning energy that has the capacity to eclipse out what is blocking progress or that has run it's course as part of the fresh start. This month the Eclipse Trigger Date falls on the 4th. That means that you may experience part or all of that new beginning energy on this preview day. Not everyone does, but if you do look for signs that something new is in the offering or can be kicked off involving your career, reputation, fame, personal goals, achievements, or dealings with the boss, parent, judge, mentor, or other authority figures.

Now for the other big focus of the month and it is really big. You are going to have one of your most stellar months ever focused on reaching a personal goal, your career momentum, your reputation, fame, recognition, achievements, or something going on with a higher-up/authority type like a boss, parent, teacher, director, judge, or mentor. So let’s look at it. First, Mercury has moved into these matters as the month begins and he is staying a much longer time than normal, until Oct. 7th! So you have more going for you via talks, meetings, interviews, auditions, agreements, sales, writing, ideas, offers, and decisions about these matters than you’ve ever had. Mercury will Retrograde on the 30th which is why Mercury will end up being here so much longer, so if you want to open up new situations in these matters dive in before mid-month. Jupiter has been in this part of the sky since last year and August is his last full month in your goals, career, fame, and authority figures arena as he exits on Sept. 9th not to return for another 12 years. Jupiter wants growth, luck, happiness, or prosperity in the arena he tours so you should look for ways to expand your horizons this month in these matters. This is beneficial to your work, health, animal, hired help, co-worker, and paperwork themes running through the matter and again will highlight how it plays out via travel, legal, educational, media, marketing, wedding, religious, or political channels, all good. Venus joins in on the 5th and will stay in your goal, career, fame, and authority figures arena until the 29th. She smooths out rough edges, attracts the good things, bring women on board who can benefit your aims, draws the love, income or beauty themes into the mix, and helps you to enjoy what you’re doing more, oh yeah. The Sun then joins this part of the sky on the 22nd kicking off a new 30 day cycle here that will urge you to show up, step up and get more personally or physically involved in career, goals, fame, or with authority types. You will stand out and so make it about you and your needs here at this time. There are two stellar days with all of this; the 22nd when Mercury and Jupiter get together on the same degree to amplify the talks, meetings, offers, agreements, sales, writing, ideas, or decisions in the matter, and the 27th when Venus and Jupiter do the same amplifying the love, income, women, or beauty themes to good measure. Mercury then Retrogrades over these themes on the 30th so you may experience some slow-downs or mix-ups and glitches around this time but you will now start to reconnect, release, rework, or rethink things so you get them right by the time Mercury goes Direct on Sept. 22nd.

I’d like to address two other points with all this activity in the 10th house of Virgo and your goals, career, authority figures, and fame this month. First, at one point Mercury, Venus and Jupiter will oppose Chiron in Pisces from this arena so on these days you may have the opportunity to face a wound or vulnerability with another person and to do some healing. This will play out over your goals, career, authority types, or fame one-on-one with someone. To that end it may be important to be conscious of the days this can arise since the Pisces placement can mean we are caught unaware and don’t figure it out until later. Jupiter will oppose Chiron between the 12-16th, exact on the 13th, so look at the legal, travel, educational, media, marketing, wedding, religious, or political themes to play a part. Mercury will oppose Chiron on the 19th so look at news, talks, ideas, meetings, agreements, sales, siblings, neighbors, vehicles, short trips, local activities, electronics, writing, interviews, or decisions to play a part. Venus will oppose Chiron on the 25th so look at women, love, income, or beauty themes to play a part.

Second, both Mercury and Venus will come to sit with the North Node of Destiny in the 10th house of Virgo for the last time in 18 years this month. That means you can intentionally focus on making some choices that are pointed towards your destiny with personal goals, career direction, fame, or those authority figures. Mercury will sit with the Destiny point on the 8th favoring decisions or ideas, talks or offers, agreements or sales, writing or interviews, all about these topics going forward. Venus will sit with the North Node of Destiny on the 15-16th favoring the women, income, beauty, or love themes in the mix going forward. So mark your calendars and plan on spending lots of time forwarding your interests in these areas with so much energy behind you!

The Full Moon on the 18th will either focus on some high-point around communications; the talk, meeting, agreement, sale, writing, interview, offers, or decisions, or it will focus on something culminating with; brothers, sisters, neighbors, local activities, short trips, vehicles, or electronics. Look at your aspirations and anything social you may be involved with in groups, with friends, online, at gatherings, etc, to bring this to a head. Full Moons are apt to bring endings, wrap-ups, celebrations, or achievements in these areas.

Next month we will experience a second Eclipse, this one a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Pisces and this is a very powerful culmination energy that has the capacity to eclipse out what has run it's course as part of the wrap-up, ending, achievement, or celebration. This month the second Eclipse Trigger Date falls on the 19th. That means that you may experience part or all of that climactic energy on this preview day. Not everyone does, but if you do look for signs that something is reaching it's apex involving your home, real estate deals, move, renovations, family, parents, security needs, history, or roommates.

Finally, Venus moves into Libra on the 29th which is about your friends, groups, the internet, astrology, charities, gatherings, your aspirations, freedom, and original ideas or inventions. From now until Sept23rd you’ll have the good vibes of Venus here to help you attract the love, income, beauty, or women who are good for you or to smooth out rough patches or just find more enjoyment, sweet! I can’t tell you how much more you could glean in a private reading based on your personal birth data, literally the sky’s the limit!

CAPRICORN:
Think back to what you were so passionate about, heated up over and angry or fighting about, or just plain all out motivated about between March and May. Got it? It should have had something to do with behind the scenes activities, a clandestine romance, romantic getaway, karmic/past life union, your artistic talents, interests or projects in film, music, painting, dance, sculpture, or poetry, your spiritual path via prayer, meditation, yoga, or other practices, your healing, dealing with addictions, bad habits, or hospital needs, or your research, investigations, or development. Sound right? Good, because Mars was the culprit and he is returning to push for more action, passion, fighting spirit, and motivation about these themes again starting August 2nd giving you until Sept. 27th to make it happen. Now it may involve some Sagittarius themes to get there so look into what’s up with travel, people at a distance, legal, educational, wedding, media, marketing, religious, or political channels involved as you gear up or heat up and dive back in full force. Now, Saturn went Retrograde over these same topics of artistic, romantic, spiritual, healing, and research themes last March so you may have been held back a bit in reaching goals or making the serious stuff happen. Now on the 13th Saturn goes Direct again so at this point you can move ahead with commitments, endings, responsibilities, authority types in the mix, and ambitions. Note that on the 24th Mars and Saturn will meet on the same degree to give a fresh start to the actions and serious direction in the matter.

The New Moon on the 2nd opens up your potential in the most powerful zone in the chart, your 8th house. That means starting now and over the next 2 weeks you can seed new ventures or ideas, launch into that next chapter in current situations or see some doors opening and for your sign it will focus on: sex, reproduction, divorce, mortality issues, birth, third party scenarios, or any big financial themes like loans, inheritance, bankruptcy, insurance, taxes, alimony, child support, commissions, investments, settlements, or a partner’s money. You want to be proactive about moving ahead and look at the Leo themes involved that can help you head in the right direction; love, lovers, kids, creativity, or fun.

 Next month we will experience a New Moon Solar Eclipse and this is a very powerful new beginning energy that has the capacity to eclipse out what is blocking progress or that has run it's course as part of the fresh start. This month the Eclipse Trigger Date falls on the 4th. That means that you may experience part or all of that new beginning energy on this preview day. Not everyone does, but if you do look for signs that something new is in the offering or can be kicked off involving travel, people at a distance, legalities, education, media, marketing, weddings, religion, politics, or publishing.

Now for the really big focus this month, your ninth house of legal, travel, distant, media, marketing, wedding, education, religion, and politics. There is so much that is going to be amped up about these matters for you that I can’t believe something big won’t be happening in at least one of these matters. First, Mercury has moved into this arena before the month starts and he is touring here an extra long time, until Oct. 7th, to help you open up talks, meetings, agreements, sales, writing, interviews, offers, proposals, and decisions about it. So you want to keep the communications open and get in there and get busy. These things will start to slow down mid-month since Mercury will Retrograde over these themes on the 30th so if you need to open up new situations, ideas, meet new people, etc, about any of this, push in the first half of the month, after that you’ll be involving past or ongoing situations more. Jupiter has been in these travel, distant, legal, educational, wedding, religious, media, marketing, and political arenas since last year and August is his last full month here, as he exits on Sept. 9th and won’t return for another 12 years. Jupiter wants growth, luck, happiness, or prosperity via these themes for you so you want to look at how you can expand your horizons via putting in the effort, tackling work, health, animal, hired help, co-worker, organizing, or paperwork needs in the mix. Venus will arrive in these matters on the 5th and stay until the 29th so this bodes well for the love, income, beauty, and women who can help and your travel, distant, legal, wedding, religious, political, media, marketing, or educational interests. She may smooth out rough patches, attract the good stuff or just help you enjoy yourself more during her stay. The Sun enters into the picture on the 22nd, kicking off a new 30 day cycle that puts a spotlight on you and your needs in the mix. This is your time to show up and get more personally or physically involved, tie in your name, body, image, brand, or needs in the mix and take the lead. You will be noticed. Two strong days for these matters will be the 22nd when Mercury and Jupiter meet on the same degree to start fresh with news, talks, offers, or decisions about it, and the 27th when Venus and Jupiter come together for a fresh start involving the love, income, women, or beauty in the mix. Finally, as I mentioned, Mercury will Retrograde on the 30th and at this point things either slow down or you notice some mix-ups or glitches about it and then you start to reconnect, release, rework, or rethink things so you get it right by the time Mercury Retrograde ends on Sept. 22nd.

I’d like to address two other points with all this activity in the 9th house of Virgo and the travel, distant, legal, educational, wedding, religious, media, marketing, or political themes this month. First, at one point, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter will oppose Chiron in Pisces from this arena so on these days you may have the opportunity to face a wound or vulnerability with another person and to do some healing. This will play out one-on-one over these themes so take care not to be wounding but to enhance the healing aspect. To that end it may be important to be conscious of the days this can arise since the Pisces placement can mean we are caught unaware and don’t figure it out until later. Jupiter will oppose Chiron between the 12-16th, exact on the 13th, so look at the legal, travel, educational, media, marketing, wedding, religious, or political themes to play a part. Mercury will oppose Chiron on the 19th so look at news, talks, ideas, meetings, agreements, sales, siblings, neighbors, vehicles, short trips, local activities, electronics, writing, interviews, or decisions to play a part. Venus will oppose Chiron on the 25th so look at women, love, income, or beauty themes to play a part.

Second, both Mercury and Venus will come to sit with the North Node of Destiny in the 9th house of Virgo for the last time in 18 years this month. That means you can intentionally focus on making some choices that are pointed towards your destiny with travel, distance, legal, educational, media, marketing, wedding, religious, or political interests. Mercury will sit with the Destiny point on the 8th favoring decisions or ideas, talks or offers, agreements or sales, writing or interviews, all about these topics going forward. Venus will sit with the North Node of Destiny on the 15-16th favoring the women, income, beauty, or love themes in the mix going forward. So mark your calendars and plan on spending lots of time forwarding your interests in these areas with so much energy behind you!

The Full Moon on the 18th is a big moment for you involving a purchase, your possessions or products, or your income. This may be a time when you are wrapping things up or marking endings about these matters or it may be about achievements, recognition or celebrations here. Your aspirations, need for freedom or original ideas play a big part and it seems as though something social may be key so think about gatherings, groups, the internet, friends, associates, astrology, charities, or social networking that could be part of bringing this climax.

Next month we will experience a second Eclipse, this one a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Pisces and this is a very powerful culmination energy that has the capacity to eclipse out what has run it's course as part of the wrap-up, ending, achievement, or celebration. This month the second Eclipse Trigger Date falls on the 19th. That means that you may experience part or all of that climactic energy on this preview day. Not everyone does, but if you do look for signs that something is reaching it's apex involving talks, news, meetings, agreements, sales, writing, interviews, offers, short trips, local activities, neighbors, siblings, vehicles, electronics, ideas, or decisions.

Venus then moves into Libra on the 29th and hones in on your career, reputation, fame, personal goals, and dealings with authority figures from now until Sept23rd. This is a good thing as far as being able to smooth out rough spots, attract the love, income, women who can benefit your aims, or beauty themes into the mix, and to just enjoy what you are doing here more, sweet. I can’t tell you how much more you could glean in a private reading based on your personal birth data, literally the sky’s the limit!

AQUARIUS:
Think back to all the activity going on regarding your aspirations, friends, groups, the internet, astrology, charities, gatherings, your freedom, or original ideas between March and May. Mars was doing his best to get you busy here by either motivating action, stirring passions or getting you to deal with anger issues in the mix. Mars is now back starting August 2nd and he’s going to finish his tour of these matters between now and Sept. 27th so you get in there and do what needs doing. Since this is in Sagittarius you may find that tending to legal, travel, educational, media, marketing, wedding, religious, or political interests in the mix may help you get there faster. Saturn Retrograded in March in the same matters and now on Aug. 13th will go Direct again so at this point you can start to move forward again with the serious needs in the mix; endings, commitments, responsibilities, structuring things, dealing with the authority type people involved, or being ambitious about it. Note that on the 24th Mars and Saturn will meet on the same degree here marking a fresh start between the actions and getting real side of things with these topics moving forward.

The New Moon on the 2nd opens up your best 2 week window of the year to launch into that next chapter, start something new or see some doors start to open regarding key relationships. So look to romantic partners, business partners, clients, specialists, agents, attorneys, opponents, competitors, and the like for forward movement. Also remember this is Leo themed so these people can be important to what is possible with your love life, kids, creative ventures, or recreational pursuits.

 Next month we will experience a New Moon Solar Eclipse and this is a very powerful new beginning energy that has the capacity to eclipse out what is blocking progress or that has run it's course as part of the fresh start. This month the Eclipse Trigger Date falls on the 4th. That means that you may experience part or all of that new beginning energy on this preview day. Not everyone does, but if you do look for signs that something new is in the offering or can be kicked off involving sex, reproductive needs, divorce, triangles, mortality, birth, or major financial matters like the loan, debt, inheritance, bankruptcy, insurance, taxes, investments, settlements, alimony, partner's money, or child support.

Now for the really major focus this month; your powerful 8th house. The 8th house rules sex, reproduction, divorce, death, birth, power, all major financial matters, and third party situations. You start the month with Mercury having just entered these matters and Mercury is now going to stay for an extended period, until Oct. 7th. So August is a big month for meetings, talks, ideas, agreements, sales, writing, interviews, offers, and decisions that focus on these 8th house matters. Hit the ground running as the month begins since Mercury will Retrograde here on the 30th so things will start to slow a bit mid-month as it gets closer. Jupiter has been in this part of the sky since last year and is now spending his last full month in your 8th house before he will exit this arena on Sept. 9th, not to return for another 12 years. Jupiter wants to see growth, luck, happiness, or prosperity in the area it travels through so look for ways to expand your horizons via these themes. Venus then enters into the picture on the 5th and tours here until the 27th. This is good news as well since Venus helps attract the good stuff, smooth out the rough patches, bring women on board who may benefit, and the love, income or beauty flow around what you’re pursuing here. Venus can also just help you enjoy what is going on here more at this time. The Sun enters into the story next, on the 22nd, kicking off a 30 day cycle that will task you to start showing up and getting more personally or physically involved in these sexual, divorce, reproductive, mortality, financial, or triangle situations. It is a spotlight on you and helps you to be noticed and take the lead. Two special days stand out about all of this; the 22nd when Mercury and Jupiter come together on the same degree for bigger potential with those meetings, talks, offers, agreements, sales, or decisions, and the 27th when Venus and Jupiter embrace opening up new potential for the love, income, beauty, or women in the equation. Finally, Mercury Retrogrades on the 30th so you may notice things slowing down leading up to this and more mix-ups or glitches as it Retrogrades. You’ll now be heading back over things to reconnect, release, rework, or rethink things so you get it right by the time Mercury goes Direct on Sept. 22nd.

I’d like to address two other points with all this activity in the 8th house of Virgo and the financial, sexual, divorce, reproductive, mortality, or third party themes this month. First, at one point, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter will oppose Chiron in Pisces from this arena so on these days you may have the opportunity to face a wound or vulnerability with another person and to do some healing. This will play out one-on-one over these themes so take care not to be wounding but to enhance the healing aspect. To that end it may be important to be conscious of the days this can arise since the Pisces placement can mean we are caught unaware and don’t figure it out until later. Jupiter will oppose Chiron between the 12-16th, exact on the 13th, so look at the legal, travel, educational, media, marketing, wedding, religious, or political themes to play a part. Mercury will oppose Chiron on the 19th so look at news, talks, ideas, meetings, agreements, sales, siblings, neighbors, vehicles, short trips, local activities, electronics, writing, interviews, or decisions to play a part. Venus will oppose Chiron on the 25th so look at women, love, income, or beauty themes to play a part.

Second, both Mercury and Venus will come to sit with the North Node of Destiny in the 8th house of Virgo for the last time in 18 years this month. That means you can intentionally focus on making some choices that are pointed towards your destiny with financial, sexual, reproductive, mortality, divorce, or third party interests. Mercury will sit with the Destiny point on the 8th favoring decisions or ideas, talks or offers, agreements or sales, writing or interviews, all about these topics going forward. Venus will sit with the North Node of Destiny on the 15-16th favoring the women, income, beauty, or love themes in the mix going forward. So mark your calendars and plan on spending lots of time forwarding your interests in these areas with so much energy behind you!

The Full Moon on the 18th is in your sign, Aquarius! This is your point in the year when something has reached its height for you and you are either wrapping things up, marking endings, noting achievements, garnering some recognition, or celebrating. The focus should be on you, your body, image, brand, name, title, or personal needs and how far you’ve come since this time last year.

Next month we will experience a second Eclipse, this one a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Pisces and this is a very powerful culmination energy that has the capacity to eclipse out what has run it's course as part of the wrap-up, ending, achievement, or celebration. This month the second Eclipse Trigger Date falls on the 19th. That means that you may experience part or all of that climactic energy on this preview day. Not everyone does, but if you do look for signs that something is reaching it's apex involving your income, possessions, products, purchases, or what you value/how you are valued.

Finally, Venus enters Libra on the 29th so you will start to see some good things starting to be possible via travel, legal, educational, media, marketing, wedding, religious, or political arenas. Venus will now help attract or smooth things out, bring in the love, income or beauty themes via these areas, or women on board who might help. It’s time to enjoy what is going on here.

PISCES:
August holds some real promise to get back in there and make some things happen with your career, fame, personal goals, or dealings with higher-ups like the boss, parent, director, mentor, or judge. Think back to what was in play March-May when Mars was last here. Mars is now back starting August 2nd and will amp things up between now and Sept. 27th so you can motivate, express your passions and/or deal with any anger issues in the mix. Mars will then move on and not return for another 2 years so you want to amp things up while you have this added fire behind you. When thinking about your goals, career and authority types and the momentum behind it, look at the Sagittarius themes that might be key; travel, legal, educational, media, marketing, publishing, wedding, religious, or political channels. Saturn Retrograded in March over these same areas of goals, career, fame, and authority figures and now on Aug. 13th Saturn will go Direct again. That means that you can start to move forward with the serious side of things, marking endings, making commitments, structuring things so they support you, focusing on responsibilities, and getting ambitious. Note that on the 24th Mars and Saturn will meet on the same degree to mark a fresh start together via the actions and solid cementing nature of the two planets.

The New Moon on the 2nd opens up the potential for you with work, health, animals, paperwork, organizing, cleaning, co-workers, people you hire, and the details. This is that time each year when you can embark on something new, take current themes to the next level or seek some open door opportunities around them. Look at how you can introduce more creativity or fun or what you can do involving the lover or kids as you gather steam in these areas.

Next month we will experience a New Moon Solar Eclipse and this is a very powerful new beginning energy that has the capacity to eclipse out what is blocking progress or that has run it's course as part of the fresh start. This month the Eclipse Trigger Date falls on the 4th. That means that you may experience part or all of that new beginning energy on this preview day. Not everyone does, but if you do look for signs that something new is in the offering or can be kicked off involving romantic partners, business partners, clients, specialists, agents, attorneys, opponents, competitors, or advocates.

Now for the really big stuff going on this month; your relationship zone. It’s rare to see this much action between planets all coming together for one reason as we do this month and for your sign it is all about romantic partners, business partners, clients, specialists, agents, attorneys, opponents, competitors, advocates, or other key players. First, Mercury is here and will be focusing his energy on these matters until Oct. 7th, a very extended period for Mercury. So talks, meetings, agreements, sales, writing, offers, interviews, short trips, local activities, and decisions are going to be where it’s at with these people. If you want to initiate something new here dive in the first half of the month before Mercury starts to slow down for his Retrograde. Jupiter has been in these areas since last year and is now going to spend his last full month focused on relationships. Jupiter will exit this arena on Sept. 9th not to return for another 12 years so you really want to hone in on the growth, luck, happiness, or prosperity potential he is bringing in these relationships now, even if it’s just starting down that road. Venus will enter into it on the 5th and tour here until the 29th. This is good as well since Venus can help attract what you desire, smooth out rough edges, bring the love, income, beauty, or women on board that can benefit you here, or just help you to enjoy what is going on more now. The Sun then enters the story, urging you to show up and get more personally or physically involved with these key players. This is your time, over the next 30 days of this spotlight, to stand out and take the lead, making it about you with these people so dive in. Two major days in all of this are the 22nd when Mercury and Jupiter meet on the same degree to make those talks, ideas, offers, or decisions go bigger, and the 27th when Venus and Jupiter meet on the same degree to open up the potential for the love, women, income, or beauty in the mix. Finally Mercury Retrogrades on the 30th so you may start to see things slow down or experience mix-ups or glitches with relationships. At this point you’ll start to reconnect, release, rework, or rethink things so you can get it right by the time Mercury goes Direct on the 22nd of September.

I’d like to address two other points with all this activity in the 7th house of Virgo and the partners, clients, specialists, representatives, opponents, competitors, advorcates, or other relationship themes this month. First, at one point, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter will oppose Chiron in Pisces from this arena so on these days you may have the opportunity to face a wound or vulnerability with another person and to do some healing. This will play out one-on-one over these themes so take care not to be wounding but to enhance the healing aspect. To that end it may be important to be conscious of the days this can arise since the Pisces placement can mean we are caught unaware and don’t figure it out until later. Jupiter will oppose Chiron between the 12-16th, exact on the 13th, so look at the legal, travel, educational, media, marketing, wedding, religious, or political themes to play a part. Mercury will oppose Chiron on the 19th so look at news, talks, ideas, meetings, agreements, sales, siblings, neighbors, vehicles, short trips, local activities, electronics, writing, interviews, or decisions to play a part. Venus will oppose Chiron on the 25th so look at women, love, income, or beauty themes to play a part.

Second, both Mercury and Venus will come to sit with the North Node of Destiny in the 7th house of Virgo for the last time in 18 years this month. That means you can intentionally focus on making some choices that are pointed towards your destiny with any of these relationship interests. Mercury will sit with the Destiny point on the 8th favoring decisions or ideas, talks or offers, agreements or sales, writing or interviews, all about these topics going forward. Venus will sit with the North Node of Destiny on the 15-16th favoring the women, income, beauty, or love themes in the mix going forward. So mark your calendars and plan on spending lots of time forwarding your interests in these areas with so much energy behind you!

The Full Moon on the 18th is about your yearly high-point with romance, artistry, spirituality, healing, addictions, hospitals, retreats, rest/recuperation, research, or development. That means you may be wrapping things up, marking endings, noting achievements, garnering some recognition, or celebrating in these areas. Focus on your aspirations, freedom, original ideas, and any social aspect to bring this to it’s peak.

Next month we will experience a second Eclipse, this one a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Pisces and this is a very powerful culmination energy that has the capacity to eclipse out what has run it's course as part of the wrap-up, ending, achievement, or celebration. This month the second Eclipse Trigger Date falls on the 19th. That means that you may experience part or all of that climactic energy on this preview day. Not everyone does, but if you do look for signs that something is reaching it's apex involving your body, image, brand, name, title, identity, or some personal need, desire or goal.

Finally, Venus enters Libra on the 29th where she will now be smoothing out and attracting what you desire via sex, divorce, reproduction, financial matters, or third party situations. This may bring a woman into focus here or give you a flow with love, income or beauty themes in the mix and should help to make these areas more enjoyable between now and Sept23rd. I can’t tell you how much more you could glean in a private reading based on your personal birth data, literally the sky’s the limit!
