Full Moon on August 20th. Astrology helps us to make well thought out decisions. It backs up our intuitive knowingness. learn to trust your intuition.
August 12-14 Mercury is in a positive aspect with Uranus which increases intuition and creativity.
August 16 the Sun is now in a challenging aspect with Pluto which is known to stir up trouble. Conflict, competition for power or domination is common and of course not at all comfortable between friends.
August 16- September 11 Venus is in Libra which is the sign “she” rules. Your creative juices are flowing and you want to re-decorate. You are not happy with the colors surrounding you at home (or at work) and you have great visions of how it could be. You want to be fair and get support from those who live with you, but you really are determined to have it your way. Libra energy is respectful of others and wants support and cooperation but also cannot put up with ugliness or disorderliness.
August 17-22 Jupiter is in a challenging aspect to Uranus which brings about sudden changes which can be very disruptive and hopeful, yet usually turn out to be disappointing. If you’re involved in some kind of financial speculation this indicates a problem, hopefully to be resolved.
August 19 the Sun is awkwardly aspecting Uranus, which is the “don’t tell me what to do,” aspect. Venus is awkwardly aspecting Neptune also today, until midnight. This aspect is all about wishful thinking and fantasies which become obsessive. It may concern fantasizing about someone unreachable, or married.
August 20 Mercury is awkwardly aspecting Pluto which brings about obsessive thoughts which correctly channeled will be great for doing research or other tedious work using your mind.
August 20 the Full Moon will be taking place at precisely 9:45 p.m. with the Moon in Aquarius and the Sun opposite in Leo. There is a huge potential at this time for healing to take place while in a group setting. Realizations come and you can move forward and leave behind an idea that you were going to bank on. You can clearly see that it won’t work out the way you had imagined. From this something else (better) will take root. Do not rush into anything.
August 22-September 22 the Sun moves into earthy Virgo today (August 22) at 7:02 p.m. It’s time to start focusing on the new routines you will be creating after the harvest of good foods and also good thoughts. Virgo has to do with being discriminating with which thoughts you allow front stage attention. Then the other thoughts can be carefully deleted from your mind. This is an important process for maintaining your health.
August 22-24 Venus is now in a difficult aspect with Pluto. Dredging up past relationship issues may come about due to the need to clear the past and move forward with no strings holding you back. It’s time to forgive and let go. This aspect often brings up feelings of jealousy, suspiciousness and possessiveness which have to be dealt with and not swept under the rug for one more minute. The Sun and Mercury are closer together now than usual. Your mind is quickened yet could be overwhelmed with self conscious thoughts of how you came across or how do others see you? These particular thoughts could find you losing your perspective.
August 23-September 9 Mercury will be in Virgo. Mercury is the ruling planet of Virgo and thus operates well here. Your thinking is more orderly and this is a fine time for learning and teaching.
August 23-25 it’s time to set aside the wonders of Mercury in Virgo and let go of needing to analyze and understand. Mercury is now opposite Neptune and it can be a very confusing time if you are analyzing your psychic awareness. It’s best to trust it and learn what needs to be learned.
August 24-26 Venus is opposite Uranus which means that you could be reckless in your approach to romance. Flirting for fun and nothing more is where it’s at. The Sun in Virgo is opposite Neptune in Pisces. Visualizing and fantasizing how the world could be, if it were your ideal world… would make a great theme for meditation. Allow yourself to stretch out beyond that your imagination thinks is possible.
August 25-27 Venus is roughly aspecting Jupiter opening the door to temptation to indulge in sweets and alcohol. It could be a party or just socializing with friends that brings out the compulsive urge to have more, and more. Mercury is nicely aspecting Saturn bringing in the voice of reason and sanity. You could talk yourself out of overdoing it if you chose to do so.
August 27-October 15 Mars is now in Leo, a fiery sign which loves to be active physically especially if it’s all about having fun. You can boost your confidence by doing things that you’re good at and easily improving your ability. The position of Mars in Leo loves dancing, performing, creative expression plus athletics as healthy ways to just be yourself.
August 26-28 Mercury is in a super fine aspect with Pluto which takes you into the depth of understanding. You’re searching for a greater level of knowingness. Example: I just read a magazine from the grocery store all about the life and death of John Kennedy Jr. and what may have been the real cause of his death.
August 28-30 the Sun is in a favorable aspect to Saturn until 9 p.m. on August 30th. The voice of reason has spoken! Your thinking is rational and you can get a handle on how to deal with issues coming up that previously had “made” you feel nervous. Mercury is nicely aspecting Jupiter ushering in humor and a quickened mind blended with wisdom.
*August 30 is a Friday there are very special aspects taking place on this day and August 31. First of all on August 30th between 7-8:15pm ( calculated for the east coast time zone) would be an incredibly potent time for meditation to receive clear guidance and to send out prayers/invocations for healing for loved ones that you are concerned about and for the whole of humanity and it's also true on August 31 from 12:30-2am and also 3:45-4:15am good for meditations.
August 31- September 1 the Sun in Virgo is in a positive aspect to Pluto in Capricorn. This has got to be my most favorite aspect of all. It offers courage, confidence, inner strength and stamina, determination and opportunities galore seem to be laid at your feet.
If you ever want to get an astrological reading it’s important to know your birth time. If you don’t know it you need to contact the Bureau of vital Statistics (birth and death records) at the capital city of the state you were born in.
