Here is a look at what astro hits are happening for the month of August.
Aug 2nd- Mars Rx squares Uranus in Taurus, the 2nd of 3, Uranus and Mars meet up again to shake, rattle and roll us out of the past
Aug 7th– Venus enters Libra + Sun in Leo squares Jupiter in Scorpio + Uranus goes Rx, this is a lot happening in a day. Venus is in her home sign, She is feeling strong.
Aug 8th– Sun in Leo conjunct Mercury Rx in Leo
Aug 11th- New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo @18° Leo42′, another cosmic shift.
Aug 13th– Mars Rx back into Capricorn, back to some structure, into an earth sign.
Aug 19th– Mercury goes D + Jupiter in Scorpio trines Neptune Rx in Pisces, maybe some relief, a little cosmic push and flow, but with edge for the going direct part. Watch for any info that flows your way.
Aug 23rd- Sun enters Virgo
Aug 26th- Full Moon in Pisces @ 3°
Aug 28th- Mars Rx in Capricorn goes D, finally you may start to feel less irritable and agitated.
A peak at few aspects happening during August plus a whole lot more going on.
It’s still a busy month, with more to add to some stories that have been playing out.
Another eclipse brings more intensity and flare in the sign of Leo, it’s about being yourself if you can just don’t be too dramatic or over the top, to many other Rx and influence for that. This New Moon will quncuix Pluto + conjunct Mercury Rx + square Jupiter in Scorpio. Not the easy of aspects to play around with.
Well, like always hold on tight, it’s another whirly gig.
Blend the past and the future together, one step at a time you move/weave to the next stage or part of your life. Let go, loosen the grip and most of all of have Faith.
– Grand water trine Venus in Cancer, Jupiter Rx in Scorpio and Neptune In Pisces.
– Moon in Sag trines the Leo North Node
– Sun in Gemini trines the Aquarius South Node.
– Sun sextiles North node
– Sun quincunx to Saturn in Capricorn.
– Sun, North Node, Saturn = Yod
Moon in Sag, seeking freedom, adventure, expansion, faith, wisdom and so much more. Sun in Gemini the details, information, communication and choices is the way to get this freedom. Move through, step by step, it all unfolds to take you further. And you may find it happens quickly with Gemini’s influence.
Grand water trine is the undercurrent that brings in a beautiful flow. Jupiter(expansion/freedom/faith), Venus(love/value/desire) and Neptune(spirit/faith).
This is useful as it helps to move you out. If opportunity comes your way, take a look at it, as it’s a stepping stone, to other ways of being and living. Plus the nodes are involved in this full moon, a purpose or more to life is trying to get your attention.
The Yod(destiny or fate), also known as the finger of God to Saturn, which is the quincunx, the uncomfortable part. A bigger plan is at work here, the external force that you have no control over is weaving the destiny of your future path. Sun shines (conscious awareness) on what you need to do/know, actions to take to meet up with the demands of Saturn(responsibilities/rules/limits). Has to be some boundaries/structure to work within. Which also helps with the grand water trine.
Sun points to the Leo north node, future path, shines the light on your purpose, identity, for you to fully start expressing your talents and gift. So shine your light, it’s the only way forward from here, no more hiding behind the old persona.
Full Moon in Sagittarius 30th May @0:20:46 am – culmination – leaving or falling away – freedom + new horizons.
Taurus – values, money, love, self-esteem, resources. This is a nice little new moon in fixed sign, Taurus, steady, grounded, practical, keeping it clear, calm and simple. Taurus an earth sign is manifesting and building energy. Perfect place to plant the seeds of intention for growth and abundance. But….. hang on, wait a tick, looming in the background is a major change waiting to happen and shake things up even more. So perhaps not so much calm after all.
New Moon trines Pluto Rx in Capricorn + Mars in last degree of Capricorn. Pluto is Rx, going back over old stuff for review and transformation, of course with Pluto’s intense touch. Sun/Moon both connect with Pluto’s regenerative powers for transformation, healing. A renewed sense of self, can shine through. Mars is driving/pushing you forward with Capricorn’s ambitious vibe.
A time to rebirth a new set of values, which are more in alignment with your true nature.
This Moon may start of steady, low impact, then it may all change in unexpected ways, can also speed up, and go in any direction. Trying to control it will be very difficult. Uranus + Mars combo brings in some electric energy, also can bring in the breakdown or breakthrough.
Uranus, thunder God of change, the great awakener, lands with a thud into Taurus, then bangs it up, with a roaring match with Mars now moved into Aquarius. Both planets moving, might make for an angry hot pair.
Uranus entering Taurus 16th @1:16 am, for an 8 years stay. Then Mars enters Aquarius for along stay, goes Rx here, 16th @2:54 pm and squares up to Uranus @5:03 pm.
It is still a New Moon very important to plant that intention, on change and knowing in what direction you do want to eventually go, that will be the backbone of all of this.
As always go check out your birth chart to see how ALL of this will impact you.
Stay steady, be strong, one way or another, change is on the way!
Full moon is square to north and south nodes + sextile to Saturn.
The layers that you have build around you, disintegrate, the past that you were buried under slowing falls away under the shadow and light of this full moon.
The energy is high, emotions are intense, the square puts you in a crisis mode, you want to stay in the stable, secure place, that your kinda comfy in. But the old is worn out and stale/stagnate, it no longer brings passion. To leave the old behind is scary, to face the new is unknown, this makes you feel uncomfortable and unsure. Brings in the fear.
Deep inside you want passion, connection, your spirit to feel challenged and alive. you want an authentic feeling, presence and essence to shine from you. To hang on is hard, to not let go is way harder. Bring peace to your heart, seek inside for the answers.
Allow what your deep emotions are telling you to do, it’s time to cross over. To let the shadows, the pain dissolve and come into the light.
Saturn/moon meet up with a harmonious sextile to help you to cross, a gentle nudge, push for your success. This does help with some nourishment, nature, comfort and security. They will also help crystallize the changes from the past that you are making. You have a good chance of success, a positive change.
Go steady, be determined, be sure. Trust the process, feel empowered and follow your heart to transformation and healing.
New Moon in Aries, 16th @11:57 am, conjunct Uranus.
Mercury Rx slowed you down, frustrated the hell out of you, now you have some new information, insight, realizations about all of that and you are ready for the new, filled with energy and enthusiasm/drive for the next step or action you take. Even though you may still be feeling vulnerable and know that a touch of courage is needed.
Keep in mind that Mercury squares Saturn(26th), don’t go rushing to far ahead full of enthusiasm or be too impulsive as Saturn will put the brakes on. You want to come out of the gate sure and steady, not wobbly.
Being conjunct Uranus, for the last time in Aries as Uranus enters Taurus in May. Being the last, you are wrapping up this 7-8 year journey, what surprises, breakdowns/breakthroughs did you endure. Uranus, destabilizes situations that are not strong enough to withstand the volt it brings. Hopefully you have found some insight and truth to you(identity/Aries) and how you work in this life.
Uranus brings it’s on style and unique edge to this New Moon. What’s Uranus? independence, individuation, takes us out of the comfort zone, future plans, goal, visions, opens you up for change and trying something new. Uranus amps up the energy here, gives the Aries Moon/Sun the push to go for the new.
Aries is all about you, what action or direction do you want to take now, what areas of life do you want to start over again with, bring in a new vibe for the year ahead as Aries is the beginning of the zodiac year, it starts now.
Start of with using this high energy for a positive start for change in your life.
Set your intentions, write them out, get clear in your head about the direction or focus you want the year ahead to be. What did the Mercury Rx tell you or show you, part of the information or awakening to help you out.
But most of all how do YOU want to be in the year ahead?
Life can be so frustrating, annoying, messy and a struggle, finding your way along, trying to find some peace from the outside world in which you live and interact. People poke and situations are all around you and you have to participate in it all, whether you want to or not, but how you want to do that is all up to you, under this Libra Full Moon you have the chance to think about this.
Libra finding some balance or finding your centre, getting back to a middle space or ground, you are getting a little help from Saturn and Mars with this Full Moon,even if it doesn’t feel like it. Saturn blocks or limits and Mars is the action, taking or even thinking of taking. It’s holding you back from going to far ahead or rushing ahead, it’s the slow, steady approach that is going to work best. And, it will bring about some annoyance or frustration for sure.
This Moon is calling for balance, for you to make a decision, about how you are going to proceed forward. It’s talking about the biggies in your life. Libra is ruled by Venus, love, money, values, self-respect and relationship, the other people, this is the theme that will be playing out and something will be illuminated for you to see, it’s showing you something about you, others may be showing or projecting onto you what is inside of you. Saturn is involved, a little testing could be part of this Moon, if you do feel tested, have to face something that the Moon brings up, that something needs to be worked on or looked at, as it’s part of the area of life that needs addressing or getting clarity on.
Sun in Aries, that’s the me, part, identity, individuality, your passion, goals, confidence and courage to be who you are really are, what you are here to do, be. You do need to pull back at times to see yourself clearly, to take you back to the centre of your being, get centred and push-off from that point.
Saturn is excellent at putting on the breaks for you to slow down, Saturn is also excellent at putting roadblocks in your way to make you slow down and even stop if you are getting lost, out of line or just being to eager to run forward. Take whatever is slowing you down as a blessing at this point.
Venus who rules this Moon did meet up with Uranus, new, exciting, in the Venus themes, it may have sparked you up, rattled you for more to come. But now you feel frustrated because you tried to get out of the comfort zone, or (thought that you should get out) which is a good thing and you will, but not quite yet. Or not in the way you thought you should. Saturn says.
Sun conjunct Mercury Rx you have a few things to go over again in your head, about Aries/Mars things, keep it real about who you are and what you want. Re-access – process, before moving forward.
There again it’s going slow and finding your centre spot, breathe into this and find some stillness and peace, stick with the truth of where you are going and who you really are in regards to others and you. It’s time to get real about this.
Sun/Moon trine, North and South Node, past and future, moving from past to future requires you do the work, except the limits or blockages that are in front of you, and pay attention to what you are seeing, hearing and feeling.
Venus does enter Taurus before this Full Moon…..Phew! she says to getting out of Aries and into her home sign of Taurus, she does rule Libra too, Venus themes are strong. Here again it’s the steady and slow approach, she’s building, steady, secure and stability are key to future growth in areas of love, money, self-worth.
At the end of the day it’s all about how YOU feel about yourself, you are given the opportunity to look and see how that is going. It’s hard, frustrating and difficult and you will be pissed off, there is no doubt about that.
Saturn says “Hang in there don’t give yourself to much of a hard time, just go slow and steady and do the bloody work”
What’s happening with this New Moon, a conjunction to Chiron + squares Mars.
Mars enters Capricorn + Moon enters Aries on early morning, 18th.
The build up to this new moon was rough, tough and emotional, a little internal storm was building, with Mars the warrior and action planet getting ready to move, was bringing some of the rumble.
You may have found the Mars(action, anger)also square Chiron(sensitive, wound, healing) hits a sensitive or sore spot, Mars was perhaps a bit pushy or eager, which then makes you feel vulnerable or weaker, you have over done it, slow down, look at what it’s telling you. You may have been too ready to go for it and the sore spot says, stop, before you hurt yourself more.
This is a Pisces New Moon, (Pisces is the ending, you may find that you are closing up the years story, something may be winding down) it’s not about pushing, it’s flow, pushing or trying hard will only weaken you more. You may also have felt like your were being pummeled by the Mars force from those around you, like the wave’s just kept on coming and crashing down…. force is not the way. It can bring up the victim feeling or put upon feeling and you can drown in that one. So don’t go there!
So what to do? well, see how you are feeling(Pisces, water) what is it that you are doing or trying to do. Stop and find another way. Slow down and breathe. New moon, new intention, but before that, you have to let go, things die off to be reborn again.
With all of the new coming with this Moon, ask yourself some question, “what to do now”, “what is the best way forward”. There is something this week is telling you. View your actions, what are you doing and why, you may get the message through other people and their action they could indicate the way for you. Some poked and some were poked at.
Jupiter Rx in Scorpio connects with Chiron. Jupiter in Scorpio before you can get to the good stuff you have to get into the emotional stuff, face a few fears or two. Jupiter is supporting the healing, wanting to make the move easier, emotions will be deep, they will come up for sure, what message is it telling you? this also makes you vulnerable, do the Rx thing, reflect, re-do, reassess, allow a new perspective to come though, either slow down and stop a moment, or move out of the way and accept, go with the current for a bit longer. Observe and watch to see clearly.
Stay determined, with Mars entering Capricorn(he is strong here) soon after new moon, you feel the energy shift, it’s a go ahead, this is moving forward with sure footing, a keen eye, focusing on that goal no matter what it may be. But while the New Moon is around, go gently, accept, flow, move along with the current and try not to control or push your way.
Yes, it was a poking time and has been for a while, there was a lot of poking going on and on and on and on……. Be aware of what was poked at, that caused pain. You will know what to do, you may know already. Mars in Capricorn is a strong leader and acts with self-confidence and is very sure of the next move.
Moon enters Aries, soon after Mars enters Capricorn, you feel more like your warrior self, you’ve bandaged up the wounds of last week.
The full moon in Virgo opposite the Sun in Pisces conjunct Neptune. You find the Moon will illuminate through Virgo’s practical, simple, discerning ways, will bring in the realm of reality, so the Pisces dream/vision, illusion/delusion, clarity/fog may find it gets a reality bite.
You may realize that the dream or illusion you have been in meets up with the truth or reality comes home. What you have to do now is be logical, practical and honest with yourself to keep you going forward with that dream or vision.
Be discerning, sort out what’s really worth keeping or working with and what really needs to go. Virgo brings that dream down to earth and want’s to make it practical, useful and workable, in many ways this is humbling and it touches the heart when you can look at yourself and know the truth about your situation, here is the opportunity to be true and honest, so you can be of service to the world, in ways that allow you to grow, nurture.
This Moon may bust a bubble but that’s OK, let it pop, know that all is not lost, this is a workable energy, just stay grounded, don’t get overly emotional , (I know it’s difficult with this much water in the chart ). Know you can do it by taking a realistic look at what you want and what you are doing and how you are going about doing it.
Take the shine of it and see it all in the light of day, in your day-to-day reality, plus, what are you really able to do? You will see that it’s still perfect just in different ways, you will find that the process and growth will be so much more rich once you come back to earth and look at it with a clear or new perspective from the place of who you really are, not what you think you are or imagine to be.
Venus and then Mercury (this Full Moon ruler) bump it up with Jupiter, more, to expand, luck, joy and abundance are in a trine aspect, there is more growth and things to come. Whatever it is you are letting go of now may not really be let go of completely, you can blend it all into new ways and into your new being. Mercury and Jupiter, optimistic, thoughts or thinking.
With this Full Moon be honest, real and truthful with yourself. Don’t live in the la la land or the woo woo as it won’t take you anywhere.
Keep it sweet and simple, find the beauty in the everyday things, nurture, love and embrace this quality. The growth, abundance and rewards will come in the sweet little ways.
Tender gently to the seeds and weeds as there is always more to come.
SUN enters AQUARIUS uP in the air we go.
Leaving behind Capricorn rules and stable earthy energy. Sun lightens up in Aquarius, a freshness enters your mind and heart. It may feel a little unsteady and unknown, but that may be actually what you need.
Think about the future path/plan.
There is always a little bit of a weird kink in Aquarius ways, if you find yourself acting out of character or thinking out of the box, feeling like a rebel this could be why, you have found or want some freedom, to be different or just being yourself? Either way, go for it and express yourself, let your individuality shine out.
Reconnect with your true essence, connect with the world, be original, listen to your own mind, dance to your own tune, with the Sun in Aquarius, this is the only way to go.
NEW MOON in CAPRICORN, 17th @12:16 pm (aest)
This moon conjunct VENUS, sextiles MARS, squares URANUS
New Moon in Capricorn, there is work to be done, the climb starts now in building the life you want. It’s important that you have a plan/goal, purpose for all that you are doing, as the work and hard effort will pay off in the long run. Going steadily up the mountain is the story that you are working on for the next few years, Saturn and Pluto in particular will help, support you in this journey. Be ambitious, have a goal, believe that you can succeed in your plan, don’t procrastinate, do not waste this time. As with all Capricorn ways, be realistic, honest, logical, practical, go slow and steady, be sure.
Being close to Venus, it involves love, money, relationship, values and self-esteem, new beginnings in these areas. Venus in Capricorn knows what she wants, hopefully you have worked that out too, with all of the Capricorn energy around encouraging you to make some long-term commitments for the building of the new you. If not get to it, New Moon start thinking about what it is you want for the next few years. Venus in Capricorn believes she can achieve and succeed. She likes to keep things real.
Mars lends a hand by taking action, gives you direction, emotionally motivates you to go for it.
Mars trine Chiron, healing may come about with the action or direction you take. Be caring and compassionate during this time, you may find that Venus themes will be part of the healing process for you, which may have long-term effects.
Uranus squares Moon, brings in a Sparky bold move, might be quick, unexpected ways of getting what you want to the Venus themes, adds a little bit of a surprise to the new moon vibe.
Keep in mind that the eclipses are coming, this brings in a little fate and destiny, keep an open mind, be flexiable.
Plant the seed deep into the earth sign of Capricorn, to give structure and form to your goals/plans, to give you strength and a strong foundation in the physical world.
Manifestation can happen and will happen, be committed, stay focused, keep it real, have faith in the journey.
