August – Powerful Energy from Mars

The sun will be remaining in the sign Leo, where it will continue to point you towards areas of your life that need to be changed. After all, we all have such areas. Most of the time we tend to put them on the back burner, but every now and then they have to be confronted. That’s why the sun comes back occasionally to remind us what to focus on. After August 23rd it will move into the related earth sign Virgo and you’ll probably see a noticeable and dramatic shift in your life for the better. As it forms a trine, the sun will once again be able to deliver plenty of vitality and plenty of energy to get things done. You’ll once again see positive circumstances return.

Past Mistakes Come Back to Haunt You

Mercury will still be in Leo, where it will remain throughout the entire month. It will continue to help you focus on making changes to your career should you need to do so. Precise work will still be required as Mercury will still be in retrograde. If you’ve made errors in the past, they might show up again now and require correction. But, of course, every mistake is an opportunity for improvement. Mercury will give up its retrograde position after August 19th and you can expect more normal circumstances to return in your career and communications.

Venus has been in Virgo since July 10th, and its favorable trine position will continue through August 6th. This means a harmonious period will continue.

You’ll feel its positive effects in your partnerships, your marriage, your family, your friendships, and in any artistic endeavors. The planet affects all areas related to beauty and goodness in our lives, and it’s certain to assert itself at this time. After August 6th Venus will then enter the sign Libra to form a square aspect. That means you might see some sparks fly. That’s not such a bad thing, however, since eternal harmony can get kind of boring after a while. Action is just as important as peace and quiet - the spice of life, as it were.

Mars Moves Into Your Sign

Mars will start off the month in Aquarius, but will then move into your sign Capricorn on August 13th. You will feel much more of its strong energy and power after that time. Now is a good time to move ahead with any projects you’ve been planning for a while. Male potency is awakened under Capricorn as well, and even women are likely to notice it. This might be a good time to focus on your sons and on supporting them or at least paying extra attention to their needs.

Promotion of Religion and Philosophy

Jupiter, the planet of happiness, will be forming a positive sextile through November 8th, so get excited about that. Sometimes you really can make progress without too much effort. However, in the long term it’s better to utilize all the skills you possess. Your relationships with other people will generally be good, even with people who have influence and could help you out during this time. You’ll be enthusiastic and optimistic, which will be contagious and could bring you luck. Thinking about religion and philosophy will lead to long-term fulfillment. It’s also a good time to learn about legal, medical, or educational subjects. If you work hard to achieve these high intellectual ideals, your worldly cares and financial problems will take care of themselves.

Saturn, the planet of restrictions, delays, and obstructions entered Capricorn on December 20th, 2017 and will stay there for quite a while - all the way through mid-December 2020. Saturn will have an inhibiting effect on your interests and your personal ambition, which might feel very frustrating. You work and work and still can’t get ahead. That can really be demoralizing. Of course, as we all know Saturn is apt to throw obstacles in our paths. So don’t let it get you down – you’ll still have great opportunities from Jupiter. But even if you’re feeling disappointed you didn’t achieve anything for all your efforts, don’t stop working hard. If you do, you’ll miss the opportunities Jupiter provides. This is what Capricorns need to focus on in the near future. Just don’t give up, and try to take advantage of the opportunities that come your way. What would Cicero say? - The bigger the hardship, the greater the victory! Bullseye.
