After the fireworks of July and the attendant Mercury retrograde, where we addressed old issues one more time, we have begun to move consciously toward a new life.
Regardless of how the Uranus square Pluto cardinal cross of late June affected you, your life will never be the same again. It will take the next three years to become fully conscious of how the energies have affected us. On August 8th, Mercury turns direct and we are able to express ourselves more clearly and from the heart. Simultaneously, Venus (planet of love, money and values) moves into Cancer on the World Axis. We will hear news relating to mothers, families or food supplies around the world.
Later in the month, the Sun enters Virgo on the 22nd, prompting us to take the first necessary steps toward our new definition of self. One foot in front of the other is the motto in advancing our longterm goals. Mars, planet of action and drive, transits into Scorpio, a sign he thrives in. Going underneath the surface, approaching life from a more psychological perspective, passionate sexuality are all parts of his domain. And come end of the month, the nodes of karma/dharma slide into Scorpio/Taurus for a period of 18 months, finishing up the last 1 1/2 year trend of Gemini/Sag, higher mind/lower mind. With the nodes now entering the axis of desire, we will come into contact with our physical and sensual sides, seeking new ways to grow and create financial and emotional security in our lives.
After the massive changes of the summer, August is a relatively quiet month that transitions us into another percolating crossroads come September. Enjoy the somewhat lazy heat of the end season to marinate your newly discovered plan for your life.
You have awakened to your true individuality now and will not go back to hiding who you are. It’s time to bring a sense of fructification to your life and home. Even before school starts, you will be busy planning the next leg of your journey which includes a healthy lifestyle and work environment. End of the month is a scorcher as Mars, the planet of the seducer, moves into your 8th house of sex and transformation. This will set in motion a new cycle concerning your deeper inner knowing and magnetize an individual who will make you “go there”.
You are now more certain of your worth. After relapsing into a momentary pit of self doubt and worry, you are back in even rarer form. There may be a woman in your local environment who is interested in what you have to say. She could be pivotal in advancing your goals forward. But don’t forget to leave some time for fun later in the month.
You are poised to enjoy some creative project or romance that could lead to something more. This is a harbinger of how the next 18 months will play out. Fateful and intense encounters are the name of the game starting Aug 30th.
You’ve resumed communications with friends and siblings. There was a moment last month where you felt you were reliving the past again as far as family of origin issues. But you’ve broken free from the old template and can now speak your current truth. There are money making opportunities for you, particularly around the 8th. Later on, you will be settling into a new home routine and begin the search for a more interesting work situation. The growth occurs in the areas that require that you show your true nature rather than a superficial facsimile of the old you.
If money has been tight, the situation should ease up after the 8th. And you will also be feeling much more comfortable and attractive in the coming weeks as Venus sheds her light on your beautiful countenance. Get busy telling or writing your story as there are many who would be interested in your incredible growth and progress these last few years. Time to also magnetize a very discerning and gifted lover. If you would like to be a parent, there is a green light beginning Aug 30th and continuing throughout the next 18 months.
After a slow period where none of your words seemed to come out right, you now enter a more loquacious period. There are more ideas and opportunities percolating behind the scenes, one of which has a potential for fame. Money will also begin to increase as the month advances and by the 24th, you will be raring to get your apartment/house in order. If you are considering a new home or co-residence, all signals are go starting Aug 30th.
It seemed as if you lost all of your inspiration and hope these last three weeks, but now the pistons are firing in your brain. If you have a special idea or personal leadership mission, let it percolate on the back burner a little while longer. You’ll attract the right circumstances and help next month. Meanwhile, there are some prominent women who could help make this dream a reality in the future, so notice whom you meet or connect with around the 8th. Your time to shine begins August 22nd and with the planet of motivation and courage moving through your ideas house, the words you speak or write will turn to gold.
You are able to move forward with new connections and ideas after the 8th. In fact, you may be given a leg up by a nurturing mentor type in the first two weeks of the month. You may still be feeling a little less than confident, but note that your fears are being shown to you to be released once and for all. Your self esteem and the ability to make money goes into overdrive after the 24th and this will be a harbinger of the motivation and opportunities coming your way. Your finances are poised to grow exponentially over the next 18 months based on your redirected and renewed faith in your abilities.
Pay attention to who contacts you around the 8th. It could either be a professional booster or someone who expands your mind spiritually or philosophically. You begin to discover other members of your tribe as the month progresses. Additionally, your hopes and dreams for the future may undergo a correction or realignment. It is now important that your visions become grounded in reality so take note of the critiques or suggestions that are presented to you. You come into your full powers later in the month as Mars, your ruling planet passes through your sign. The next 18 months are the most important of the last 19 years to become your true self.
Your grand visions return after a momentary dearth of brilliance. You may have encountered a passage of self-doubt and/or a spiritual dark night of the soul. Yet, the lights come on again and you will simultaneously note a passel of women who can assist you with your business plans. As long as you are serving the world, you are doing your job. With Scorpio as your 12th house, you may sometimes deny some darker or more suspicious thoughts. These will make themselves known later in the month. Use the experience to integrate all aspects of yourself for your moment in the Sun is fast approaching.
If financial support seemed to disappear last month, your supporters are back in full force. There is one significant woman or paternal figure who would like to take you under his or her wing. While the initial interest may be professional, it can turn into something more. While you are practical, you want your ideals to support you, not hinder you so notice where you tend to get bogged down in self-criticism. The next 18 months are ones for bringing your goals into manifestation and there are many skilled strategists in your midst right now. Pay attention to the most assertive and convincing one as he/she will take you all the way toward your future end game.
After some relationship mishaps, you and your partner are back on the same page. It’s important to accept each other fully and support each other’s greater destiny.
Your work environment is becoming more comfortable and one female in particular may take you under her wing. After working through some of your partnership issues, you can now enjoy the practical physical pleasures of your connection. Starting the end of the month your energy will be focussed on career and should you play your cards right, you will be in an entirely new situation in the next 18 months.
Work may have slowed down in the last three weeks, but it will return with a vengeance after the 8th. In fact, you may be inspired by a new form of creativity that has long term potential for changing the world. The focus moves to relationships of all kinds toward the end of the month so pay attention to those most willing to extend a helping hand. You do need practical support for all your other worldly ideas. You will be receiving a new education through travel, a new spiritual practice or in the arms of mesmerizing lover. This journey will continue through 2014.
