AUGUST 2018

Scorpio Sun
Scorpio Rising

You may have to travel unexpectedly for work as the month begins, or possibly take the initiative on communications or negotiations, somewhat challenging prospects with Mercury retrograde.  

Venus enters Virgo

 

Venus, ruler of your solar 7th and 12th Houses, moves into practical Virgo on the 1st of the month to stay until September. You may feel inclined to show your love through caring for your partner’s needs.

 

If you go out socially during August, you’ll likely have far more fun with a partner along, so be sure to extend the invitation should an event or opportunity arise.

 

Sun square Jupiter

 

If you need to present a book or paper, or publicly present something you have been working on in private, avoid doing so near the 6th. In fact, it would be better to wait until Mercury is well out of retrograde if at all possible, a few more weeks if you are able to delay that long.

 

Instead, share your work so far with trusted advisor and ask for advice on how to improve it while you wait.

Uranus stations retrograde

 

Unexpected reversals are possible in the workplace when Uranus stations retrograde on August 7th. Be aware of the risk of injury through accident, especially at work and at home.

 

Uranus also rules electricity, so take care if working around or with electrical systems, and be aware of the likelihood of erratic behavior in electrical equipment or devices near this date.

 

Sun conjoins Mercury retrograde

 

A private long distance conversation with a father figure may feature for you near the 8th of August, when retrograde Mercury conjoins the sun in Cancer.

 

You may reconcile with a father figure during this time. If you are estranged and wish to reconnect, this would be the time to reach out.

 

If you have a planet or personal point at 21 or 22 degrees Cancer you will be directly affected by this conjunction, so be sure to check your sidereal natal chart.

“You will find yourself in the spotlight between now and mid September. Use this time to make a good impression and build your reputation through demonstrating the leadership you’re capable of.”

New moon partial solar eclipse in Cancer

 

If you’ve been considering going back to school, the new moon solar eclipse in your 9th House of higher education presents the perfect opportunity. Likewise if travel strikes your fancy, just make your start in the days just after Mercury goes direct, around the 21st–avoiding the days near August 18th and the 31st.

 

Check your sidereal natal chart for planets or personal points at 23 or 24 degrees of a water or earth sign–Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces, Capricorn, Taurus or Virgo–to see if you will feel the effects of this eclipse directly.

 

Sun enters Leo

 

The sun moves into your 10th House of career, status, and achievement on the 17th as he begins his annual four week tour of Leo. You will find yourself in the spotlight between now and mid September. Use this time to make a good impression and build your reputation through demonstrating the leadership you’re capable of.

Mercury stations direct

 

Mercury will station direct on the 18th, and he’ll be back up to speed by September. If you’ve been planning long distance travel, or to go back to school, you may hear news that helps you move forward with your plans.

 

Sun trine Saturn-Uranus

 

A social connection could help boost your income through a work referral, sending business your way near the 25th. Alternatively, you could receive an unexpected gift from a friend, something you would likely keep for a very long time.

Full moon in Aquarius

 

A home or family matter finally comes to a head near the full moon August 26th, and you may finally be able to put it behind you.

 

Mars stations direct

 

Mars, Scorpio’s co-ruler, stations direct on the 27th, and from this point on you may feel your energy–and activity–levels increase.

 

You may find it easier to engage in constructive dialogue now, especially if disagreements and frustration have been a frequent part of your experience in the past two months.
