We have a short forecast for August . . . the long three month forecast for July, August and September is available here and still holds ‘true’ for the next couple of months. There are important events taking place that need to be mentioned as it will affect the signs mentioned in the following information. First the effects of the Full Moon on August 2nd will emphasize the emotional overload for both Aquarians and Leos, compounded by the Mercury retrograde that will finally turn direct on the 7th, giving us some much needed clarity and allowing all of the fixed signs, including the aforementioned, as well as Taurus and Scorpio to make plans that will move them forward in their lives rather than remaining stuck in their fixed opinions and immobility. Venus will move out of Gemini and move into Cancer with an emphasis on nurturing, diet and comfort, which is much needed by the cardinal signs, Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn; all early degrees of these signs have gone through tremendous changes and chaos that last few months. Relationships may take on major changes and splits when Venus opposes Pluto the second week of August and these will be mostly noted by any major planetary constellation one has in their natal or progressed charts; not to mention the Mars conjunct Saturn as a ‘stop you in your tracks’ type of effect so it is ‘proceed with caution’. As we move toward the end of August, the 19th onward, we will see the mutable signs, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces and Gemini get more into their creative energies and make big shifts in that arena of development. As a reminder, each time I send these out, you can read your daily horoscopes with this emphasis in mind; reading Ascendant (Rising sign) first, Moon secondly and Sun sign thirdly to get a more exacting reading of your activities for that day. If you do not know all of the parts of your chart, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your information and I will send you an e-mail accounting of all of this. See you next month.
