Astrological Happenings August 2016

As of today (July 30th 2016) the four outer and “heavy” planets of Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are in Retrograde motion. I will come back to what that means to you after looking at the other changes that will be happening for you this month.

Firstly, we have the New Moon in Leo on August 2nd. You will receive a separate missive about the type of New Moon in Leo wishes will work best for this period of time.

Mercury, the planet of communications has moved into one of its Rulers, Virgo for all of August. This is a great time for being direct and telling it like it is.

If you are self-employed then it’s time to write the next “how to” book for your clients. Maybe it’s time to create a course that will help your clients or patients understand how to take care of their needs in a easier manner? If you are employed it’s a great time to ask for a raise, after writing a report for your boss on what you have done in the past year to increase customer/patient satisfaction or increase income for the business.

On the personal front, if you have a partner, it’s time to re-evaluate the Vision and Goals the two of you have for the remainder of the year. If you haven’t created plans in writing, then go ahead and do that whilst Mercury is in the “writing” sign of Virgo.

For those of you who are single, make sure you have your written list of what you are looking for in a relationship. Remember to include characteristics, values and beliefs.

On August 30th Mercury will turn retrograde so expect problems with communications, including your computers from August 30th – September 22nd.

Venus, the planet of love, will also be in the sign of Virgo for the entire month of August. You could find yourself being a perfectionist in your relationships, personal and professional. Make sure you are not nit picking and following your beloved around to make sure they are doing everything perfectly!

Mars, the planet of action, will move into the sign of Sagittarius this month and stay until the beginning of October. Sagittarius represents higher learning and long distance travel. Is it time to plan a trip to Italy or England? Is it time to take a course that will move you forward? That could be traditional or non-traditional.

Jupiter, the planet of growth and expansion continues its journey through Virgo until the end of the month. This is your last opportunity to get organized, before September 5th when Jupiter will move into Libra and the energy of action will change.

Do you need to re-organize your house, office or finances? The month of August is the time to complete organization of projects. You will have enough energy to take care of all the details.

Most of August will be a “Virgo” month. A “Virgo” month is a month when projects are completed as well as a time when you will be able to find exactly what you need to complete those projects. If you have been looking for a specific type of screw to finish off putting up shelves, Home Depot will carry it! If you have been looking for a computer program that will help you organized your finances more easily, then one will jump out at you from your internet research!

Moving back to the heavier, outer planets that will affect you for a longer period of time.

Saturn represents the obstacles and challenges we need to overcome and has been retrograde since March 25th and will turn direct on August 13th. During the next 13 days you have an opportunity to go backwards and look at what needs to be completed in your life. What have you left undone? What do you need to let go of? What do you need to complete and move forward with? What needs to be renegotiated? This can apply to both personal and professional lives.

For those of you who have been unemployed, make sure you get your resume out in the next 13 days as life could change very quickly in the employment department and you could find yourself having to purchase new clothes for a new profession! If you have been looking for a house, spend this and next weekend defining what that looks like and get out there and discover your ideal home!

Uranus represents the unexpected, unusual, upheaval, rebellion, turmoil, disorder, innovation, disruptions, breakthroughs, extraordinary and originality. Uranus is the planet that awakens us to our lives. It takes us and shakes us and asks us to dig deep into focused areas of our lives so that we can make changes that ultimately empower us to grow.

Uranus Rx shakes loose that which you have been holding onto inside. Anything you have been in denial about will come to the surface and force you to look at your denial.

Depending upon the house Uranus Rx is moving through in your chart will determine the area of life you are going to giving your focus and energy over the next 5 months. Where do you need to awaken? Is it time to stop living with your hands over your eyes and ears? Is it time to step into the light?

Neptune has been Retrograde since June 13th and will continue there until November 20th 2016. During this time, you can expect to have less clarity around where you are going. You will find you have more creativity and are more apt to be able to tune into your natural intuition. Your body will experience a heightened sensitivity so avoid drugs, alcohol and over eating!

Pluto has been Retrograde since April 17th and will continue moving backwards in Capricorn until September 26th. Pluto Rx t is far more intense and allows you to concentrate your energies into areas of your life that are important. You can also tap more into your subconscious needs and take the necessary action to create a life that works for you.

With Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto all Retrograde there is internal work to be done. Some of it will come easy and some of it will require you to put in time to investigate your options and make the plans of the actions you need to complete to make major changes in your life.

Two New Moons in September, one on September 1st in Virgo and one on September 30th in Libra. Jupiter will move into Libra and relationships will grow and change. Saturn and Pluto will turn direct allowing us to put into action plans we have made during the retrogrades.
