Cycle: Full Moon Lunar Eclipse
Date: August 7th
Eclipses are always eventful, but this one in particular is going to bring about the unforeseen and unexpected, the equivalent of the “rug being pulled out from underneath” without fair warning. This is the energy of the sign Aquarius, separations, bizarre occurrences, earthquakes (earth changes and personal changes too), that bring about unprepared for shifts in life, wherever the Eclipse occurs in a person’s chart.
People whose lives are stagnant in certain areas should pay close attention to this aspect because it will most definitely “shake things up” and not just on an individual level. Eclipses in particular affect everyone, so read the news in the days leading up to this aspect and you’ll see the patterns and events as they occur in the lives of others
Dates: August 12th - September 5th
August is a month that will not disappoint when it comes to action . A lot of changes and shifts are likely to occur causing disruption, if not prepared for. First, Mercury will retrograde in Virgo for three weeks, bringing out criticism, attention to detail, caution and a desire for needs to be served, will all come to the forefront. In addition issues concerning work, health, healthcare, employers/employees will seem to be thrown into confusion, misunderstanding. misinterpretation. Not a good time to hurl criticism towards others or sign anything connected to any of the above, because it will have to be revised or may just not work out as expected. This particular retrograde is good for researching employment opportunities, new health regimens, especially connected to diet and digestion. The Universe is sending a “message”, individually and universally, to pay attention to detail, exercise discernment, be mindful of the welfare of others and don’t “bite off more than you can chew” literally.
Cycle: New Moon Solar Eclipse
Date: August 21st
The month continues on a reasonably bright note (maybe not for some), with the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo. Depending on events that occurred during the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, this aspect will bring opportunities for a better way of life, happiness, which may involve a risk or two, but generally will pave the way for brighter days ahead. Think of it as the sun shining on an area that has once been cloudy. For some this will be similar to an awakening moment. For others it may just be as simple as being aware of something positive coming to the surface, that was always there but not obvious. This aspect can be described in one phrase, “where there was darkness, let there be light”.
Cycle: Forward motion (out of retrograde)
Date: August 25th
Last, but not least, Saturn moves forward, leaving Pluto the only planet still retrograde. As a result limitations, restrictions and obstacles will start to fall away in order for progress to take place. People in positions of power/authority will be more supportive in helping expansion and growth. Saturn is a slow moving planet so this won’t all happen overnight but the change will be obvious within the first month of forward motion. Saturn is also the planet of karma, therefore issues successfully confronted during the retrograde cycle will be “rewarded” by the Universe in some way. If “lessons” aren’t learned, things will just get harder and more stagnated, especially once Saturn moves into Capricorn (Saturn rules Capricorn), December 19th for three years.
From August moving into May 2018, the astrology aspects occurring are going to create considerable changes, personally and universally, therefore it’s wise to pay attention to things not only on a personal level but on a planetary level too, in order to be prepared.
