August – Almost There
We are still dealing with the Saturn square Uranus energies through the month of August. Issues are both collective and personal, so we cannot get away from the effects of this square no matter what. We are forced to deal with our shadows and our resistances. The only responsible way to go about this is to watch what we project onto others and make sure that we are watching our own personality, ego issues. Many relationships are beginning and some are ending. Those ending are finding it difficult to let go of the separation factors that have taken place the last two years, especially the crisis that occurred beginning January 2021.
Some cosmic news to watch over the next month:
- August 8, the day before the New Moon in Leo creating new insights.
- August 20, Uranus begins its retrograde motion in the sign of Taurus and does not turn direct until January 2022. Taurus energies in all of our charts will take a long look at unfinished business.
- August 22, the Full Moon in Aquarius at the last degree of Leo will be a firm letting go of all hindrances. If this does not happen, then sorrow prevails.
Note: Always read your Ascendant/Rising sign first, Moon sign second, and Sun sign last. A combination of those three major natal factors will help you intuit what is best for you. If you need help in figuring this out, please contact me at email@example.com.
Aries — Aries is learning what service really means. Try to focus on how you value yourself in relationships to others and see if you can reflect on how to better mirror to others a renewal of value of self/Self. Oftentimes, you get caught up in what the other person ‘should or shouldn’t do’ and forget that you are actually speaking to your inner self. You make a great impact on others and they often listen to everything you say and watch everything you do, so it is important to ‘know thyself’ in all matters especially this month.
Taurus — You must focus on the body and especially around the health of the middle ear. Taurus is going through issues of tinnitus, vertigo, or other ear imbalances. The issues for you are to loosen up and do body movements, dances, which will help you keep balance to the intense vibrations going on in the cosmos at this time. You are also having trouble hearing objectively what others are telling you. You demand that others listen to you and your opinions only. It might be time to relax and listen. Your fixed sign of Taurus can often be ‘bullheaded’ and think your way is the only way. NOT!!!!
Gemini — Geminis are coming face to face with dualities and the inability to find a unity of vision, becoming aligned with others who may help them in service to ‘oneness’. There are times when Geminis are agreeing with those and aligning with ideas that are only fragments of truth. You have some great ideas and they must be followed to completion so as not to split off into an illusion. Don’t participate in gossip but enable your professional self to take over and look at the talents you have for speaking, writing, gesturing, and becoming physically connected to a purposeful outcome. Spend more time in reflection before you join the chaos of others.
Cancer — It is time to find friends and mates with whom you can share private and relaxing times. The environment around you is probably more stressed than usual or more stressful than you can handle. Take care of your immediate needs without making too many demands on those close to you. (For example, quit expecting your close intimate others to handle the stress for you.) Being sensitive to those around you does not mean that you need to share your issues. Maybe look at what is going on with others and be of service in some way, like share guidance that might be helpful.
Leo — Leos are undergoing one change after another in the revolving doors of career and authority. You are constantly trying to catch up with the demands of work and environment and one strong Leo trait is to procrastinate. Please don’t! You have to understand that you cannot put off tomorrow what should be done today. This will catch up with you both physically and mentally and only add to the stress levels. Watch your diet and try to stay plant-based and away from refined sugar. Burn those calories with that hot nature of yours. I won’t mention alcohol as it would be useless to do so, but it wouldn’t hurt to cut down!
Virgo — Virgos, please look around at those you are trying to help and to serve and reevaluate if these might represent wasted efforts on your part. You are a very helpful, wise, and generous individual to others to share your knowledge. Right now it is important to own up to all that you are asking others to do. Look to your inner guidance and inner wisdom to work with the issues of mind, body, and spirit which seem to haunt you. You are a great empath and can make great strides in healing and counseling others, but first, these strides have to be toward yourself. Use your intuition and gut reaction to understanding what I am saying here.
Libra — Learning to be a true and committed partner is taking on new meaning in the life of all Librans. Oftentimes it is the expectation of the ‘other’ to be committed and true to self, when in fact the problems come from the Librans need to find peace and harmony at all costs. This leads to a sort of denial and your body absorbs this dysfunction. Librans do not like confrontation nor conflict and will make many avoid dances so as not to face the facts. You lose your balance in mind, body, and spirit if you don’t try to balance your part of a relationship. Try it and see how peaceful and transformative this can be, your own inner process of peace and reflection!
Scorpio — You are becoming more aware of how others see you and reflect how you see yourself. Your life is changing in the way you relate and the level of awareness you have as to how you ‘partner’ with others, intimately, professionally, and familially. Your insights are more razor-sharp these days; it might create a difficult conversation or two, but you have a transformative nature, so go for it! Others may want to distance themselves from you because of your insights, but please don’t compromise your intensity so that others can live in denial. This is your calling. Oftentimes, transforming others while, at the same time, following suit!
Sagittarius — Many transformative moments are coming your way. You have dreams and insights of great proportion which must be sorted out so that you can share with others. Your insights are your gifts to humanity and will help others transform. Please don’t stop sharing your creative ideas just because others might not grasp what you are saying. Sagittarians tell their truths no matter what. You do need to develop some tact along the way so that the message can be swallowed more easily. Don’t get into your dualities and split away from your purpose, just so you can join in the crowd. You are unique so show that in all ways!
Capricorn — Your creativity and adventuresome spirit are at their maximum these days. Spend as much time with child-like friends and family so that you can enjoy the spontaneity and feel good about your ability to be a force of nature. You are opening up to a world of creative practicality that makes this an eye-opening time for you. Expand your horizons on a daily basis and be a mover and shaker, opening new horizons for others as well. The world is riddled with confusion right now, but you seem to see ‘it for what it is.’ Share your wisdom, but not your opinions. Don’t buy into the chaos!
Aquarius — It seems that you are getting what you want within your relationships, career and monetary connections, however, something seems to be missing and you are overthinking as usual. Examine your daily routine and schedule and see if you can be more practical and realistic, following your higher nature and not your lower egoic needs. Your home life needs to be re-examined because, for some reason, it is reflecting your basic needs and is not living up to the ‘reality of the situation.’ You are a unique humanitarian however, you have slipped into pessimistic thinking these days. More time for meditation, music, exercise, and reflection!
Pisces — Confusing circumstances are presenting themselves now and have come to the light of day. It might be because you have been somewhat confusing in your communication. What you have firmly believed to be true was built on a foundation of sand and needs readjusting to meet the ‘reality of the situation.’ This means there is no need to make everyone else happy and so that you can stay firmly entrenched in what you have been broadcasting to the world. Denial and avoidance are facing the Pisces character now. Truth needs to be addressed. It might be a hard reality, but the longer you stay in denial the likelihood of grim days ahead face you. You are a dreamer and creatively so, but now is not the time!
