August 1, Mars challenges Uranus at 2º Aquarius/Taurus degrees. So, we manage to stand up for our rights. Gaia is hurting and observing devastating outbreaks through natural disasters. Violent behavior is the norm for some. Many are praying for peace and are actively demonstrating and revolting current establishments of dishonesty, corruptions, and manipulations. It leaves the revolutionary individuals the right to stand up and be noticed!
August 7, Uranus station R 2º Taurus 33’ in Taurus – days of unrest and uncertainty – that is for sure. Again, those that have paid attention to personal healing and endurance will notice the forward notion and count their blessings.
August 11, New Moon Solar Eclipse, 18º Leo 41’. This eclipse brings us back to the Great American Eclipse of August 21 of 2017 and will be wide open for us to receive understanding, compassion, and empathy for our own heart (Leo) and be able to share it with humanity (Aquarius). Emotions will run high with Mars in Aquarius still in Retrograde and uncomfortably close to the South Node always indicating hidden anger, unresolved issue boiling over at times in uncontrollable rage. Intimacy if agreed upon might let off the steam, long walks or a cold shower is also helpful. Leo, the Fire sign has a line-up of the North Node, always striving to be noticed, Mercury, also Retrograde noticeable close to the Eclipse degree will exhaust many. The 18 degree Eclipse in Leo affects the natal Gemini Ascendant USA chart with an 18 degree, Moon, tariffs closing in on countries will cause delays on both sides of the riff, the emotions (Moon) will become stronger around the Eclipse, the Moon is the subconscious of individuals of a country or group. What to do? Become stronger in basic individual beliefs – of course, the right direction and road taken!
August 19, Mercury SD 11º Leo 31’. Give your Self a day, two or three to come back the reality that we all seek. News, images, and impact on many people’s lives will be discussed, felt and confusion is in the headlines. Moving forward!
August 19, Jupiter trine Neptune 15º Scorpio/Pisces 36’.
Did you notice the trine of Jupiter (good luck charmer) and Neptune (what is reality versus illusion?) on May 25? Didn’t think so! The Sky makes sure that those that look within, sit still in meditation and take care of their Selves has the audacity to believe that all matters will end up with marvelous results … miracles still occur, don’t they?
August 26, Full Moon 3º Pisces 12’. Stay clear and focused on personal goals, continue to be persistent and never give up hope for the future. We must have the tools within our own system to be ready for the unexpected news around us, within us is the personal security that this summer made us aware of.
August 27, Mars SD 28º Capricorn 36’. Since Mars return to his home base every other year, those most affected by this cycle, especially Cancer and Capricorn energies will be relieved within a week or so … easy does it and if you felt that you were frozen in time since Mars SR on June 23 … say it like it is! Mars is not about fighting the wars, but rather standing up for basic human rights so that wars never happen. If it felt like a war was going on in your life, rewound, speak up again, keep your cool, but express your anger with honesty and great composure toward those that repressed you!
We are here on Earth to live and observe our lives and incorporate the messages of self-worth into our daily living. Our Essence, our ultimate Selves are always available to protect us, support and love our process of individuation. We are blessed to still be here and be able to remember the Breath of Life …every day! And with that ‘said’, we can enjoy the summer of 2018 in Hot or Cold weather … we know for certain that this summer will be interesting and challenging months, yet, we will also notice that the flowers are blooming, vegetables are still growing, and we appreciate small little signs as hope and faith. Those that pay attention to the Sky and bring it to Earth, are the ones that might be able to support those in need – and as they say, when you are instructed as the plane takes off “put your own mask before you attempt to help others”! So, we do, and we are ready to enjoy the summer with family, friends, and neighbors – unconditionally!
