AUGUST 2018

Taurus Sun
Taurus Rising

Fuses are short and tempers are high as July draws to a close and August opens. Keep your head down and out of the line of fire as much as possible and you could benefit later.

Venus enters Virgo

 

Your ruler, Venus, moves into Virgo as the month opens, focusing your attention on children, creative projects, and even on love affairs for remainder of the month.

 

You will feel a renewed appreciation for art, especially realism, and may feel spurred to do some creating of your own. You may find yourself exploring ways to beautify the things you use every day.

 

Sun square Jupiter

 

If you’ve been looking for employment opportunities, a neighbor or sibling could be helpful in guiding you near the 6th, so be sure to ask around.

 

Just be aware that any referral you do receive is likely to challenge you to expand your skills and experience far beyond what you have currently.

Uranus stations retrograde

 

Uranus, ruler of your solar 10th House of career and achievement, stations retrograde on the 7th of August. The pace of progress on the professional front is likely to slow over the coming five months.

 

You could experience sudden insights into your own motivations and professional ambitions during this time. Rebellious behavior in either your public or professional life is likely to backfire while Uranus is retrograde.

 

Sun conjoins Mercury retrograde

 

Catch up with a sibling or neighbor over the 8th. Or, if you’ve been putting off automotive repairs, you may find yourself forced into taking care of them now.

 

Alternatively, this can also be a good time for editing manuscripts or reviewing records, if need be.

 

Look for planets or personal points at 21 or 22 degrees Cancer to see if you will be directly affected.

“A career related project or venture could be coming to fruition near this full moon, and this would be an excellent time to present your work or launch what you’ve been working on.”

New moon partial solar eclipse in Cancer

 

An opportunity arises in your neighborhood or community, most likely within a week before or after the August 11th new moon. You could have the chance to travel, or to acquire a new mode of transportation. Alternatively, you could hear important news about a sibling or neighbor. Whatever it is, it’s likely to be an active theme in your life over the coming six months.

 

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

 

Home and family matters are in the spotlight from the 17th on, when the sun enters Leo to stay until mid September.

 

You may find yourself busy with living arrangements, or with matters involving one or both parents.

Mercury stations direct

 

Mercury, ruler of commerce and negotiation, will station direct on the 18th, enabling forward progress in areas where you’ve recently found yourself backpedaling.

 

Transportation difficulties can be more easily resolved now, and miscommunications and misunderstandings can be cleared up.

 

Sun trine Saturn-Uranus

 

Near the 25th your energies are focused on home or family matters. A parent may need to convalesce and you may be required to provide care, for instance. Or, you may privately seek out the resources of another in your efforts to secure the living arrangements you desire,

Full moon in Aquarius

 

Focus on being a team player and you could be recognized for your professional contributions near the August 26th full moon. A career related project or venture could be coming to fruition near this full moon, and this would be an excellent time to present your work or launch what you’ve been working on.

 

Mars stations direct

 

Finally, on the 27th, Mars will station direct in your 9th House of international affairs and higher education. If you have put off taking a planned trip, conditions may finally be right for you to go. Watch the days around August 27th for news.
