Pandemic, Politics and Stress: Stay with the facts and do not politicize
August is an emotionally stressful month for all concerned and the more we bring on external stressors, the more we put ourselves in harms way. Learn your boundaries and keep them strong and secure. Be with those who do not cause more stress and opposition. It is time to learn how ‘you’ think and make decisions as an individual and not follow the crowd hysteria that is going on right now. The forecast for each of the signs is about individualizing your ‘being’ so that you learn to think, feel and act independently. Always remember the courage of the lion, Leo!
Full Moon begins the month of August, the 3rd, Monday with the Full Moon being in Aquarius. Highly emotional time and brings about a need for self-calming and quiet time. We can really fool ourselves during a Full Moon by becoming even more dramatic than the times call for.
Pluto and Jupiter in Capricorn are causing some major havoc, but also a purging of all established systems so this becomes evident when Pluto squares Mars around August 13 and you will see saber rattling going on…don’t buy into it! Uranus turns Retrograde about the same time in Taurus so there will be many changes going on in our inner worlds, but will be reflected in the outer worlds.
Again meditate, take care of your immediate environment and stay safe and stay with the facts. Check them out as well as those who think they hear the facts need to do some research as well. You would do well to order your planetary calendar for the year and keep up with these things for yourself.

Allow your intuition to guide you through the next month, coupled with practical and factual information. You can read below as to your Sun, Moon or Rising signs for the above energies.
Aries are juggling the bank book trying to settle their accounts but unknowns keep popping up for justification and work/career keeps throwing curve balls in your direction. You can handle this, just pretend you are a pioneer, adventurer, explorer and use that great energy for solving problems. Do not make decisions on impulse? Investigate, explore and keep your health from succumbing to stress!
Taurus must learn how to ‘go with the flow’ in emotional, physical and intellectual centers of involvement. The life is topsy turvy in all respects and for this very stable, fixed earth sign, it is causing all sorts of changes and unplanned adjustments. Anxiety and procrastination will not work here! Also now is not the time for self-calming, but instead, living moment to moment response ably!
Gemini is fixated on making money through a times that are uncertain and highly unpredictable, AND they can do this when that incredible duality is focused on one thing at a time. That is the key, focus, focus, focus! You cannot try to make things happen that are not meant to be so give that one up! Don’t project your attitude on others as they have their own to work with and don’t need yours in addition!
Cancers are finding that they can reach their goals and aspirations in career and family matters if they stick to the facts and their higher principles. When they stoop lower and start trying to manipulate, it doesn’t work! Cancers are very sensitive souls to the present predicament so they need quiet time and sacred space to survive!
Leos are thriving in the career zone as they are the types that put out emergency ‘fires’ and know how to survive at all costs. This emergency energizes the Leo into action and calls forth their real courage and responsible state of being. Be aware at all times that often you are standing alone amongst fear mongers.
Virgos are having intuitive hits one after the other and also dreams that come to them in the night or in the day that give them strength of purpose and endurance. The negative here is realizing that you cannot worry these problems away but instead get out and serve your humanity in the style you know is best.
Libra is balancing work, profession, daily routine and relationships in ways they have never done before. This is a huge learning curve the the Libra who depends largely on relationships to give them their anchors. However, they are probably the more balanced of all of the signs during this stressful time and knowing them and that part of us that has Libra would be helpful!
Scorpios are learning new ways of communicating with those they love and feel close to. They are no longer clinging to their loneliness as a way out, but looking at it as a way ‘in’ to the inner world of their intense and magnetic being. This is a strong fixed sign which is undergoing many inner changes and perceptions that will help along the way.
Sagittarius is learning how to control their extravagance in money, relationships and family matters. Their energies have been distracting them from the inner world of feeling and imagination and now the focus is on that inner world. This is throwing them for quite the struggle as they often rather intellectualize everything than ‘feel’ it.
Capricorn is trying to ‘hold down the fort’ while those around them are scattered to the ‘four winds’ and at the same time be ‘aware’ and ‘conscious’ of the chaos and confusion that drifts though their environments. Capricorn can be very wise when they have compassion and this is something all Capricorns need to be developing: Compassion.
There are no easy answers, no one to bounce off of in Aquarius everyday world. What are you going to do with yourself after all of the worries and dilemmas have been addressed? There is a new world waiting for you and it is called the ‘evolution of your own consciousness’ which will put you in a higher state of initiation!
Pisces may be the only sign comfortable in this state we are all in, however, they miss going out into the ‘wilds’ and being alone in nature just as much so they will feel and imagine all sorts of wonderful ways to explore their inner being, even by working on the external being. Now is the time to shine and be compassionate with self and others who might not be so wise.
