August is a respite from the heavy, transformational vibrations that were stimulated in July. There are no eclipses, no hard nodal contacts and no heavy outer planet transits to contend with. It’s like breathing a huge sigh of relief! Leo planets make fortunate aspects to Jupiter, which resumes direct motion on the 11th. A far more harmonious outlook comes as the challenges that have been overcome begin to yield positive outcomes. Leo emphasizes play, self expression and ardent love. The more you can tap into these, the more fruitful and enjoyable the month will be for you.
A strong romantic overtone prevails throughout August, as in addition to Leo transits, Sun conjuncts Venus (19’ Leo) on the 14th and Venus conjuncts Mars (2’ Virgo) on the 24th. New cycles for love relationships (as well as for financial or material concerns) begin on these dates. The Virgo New Moon on the 30th connects to Mercury, Venus and Mars while also forming a perfect trine to Uranus. The lunation amplifies practical considerations and seeks to take a meticulous approach to matters of the heart and within the professional realm mutually. Alliances are likely to be formed for the sake of taking on new projects or towards innovative endeavors.
Jupiter retraces it’s steps between now and November, having gone retrograde in early April. Second chances to realize an objective connected to educational goals, teaching, lecturing, broadcast, media or long distance travel emerge. By December, when Jupiter moves into Capricorn, the targets change dramatically. Make the most of the exploratory nature of next few months and especially the harmonious collaboration between the transits of planets in Leo during August. Virgo season will be very busy and productive, so make some time to live life and enjoy things for a bit!
