August 3, your wild ruler Uranus retrogrades in your communications and thankfully the shocks grow quieter. It’s all about close relationships and you being tolerant and patient with the most self-absorbed nutcases – it feels like! – most notably siblings, cousins, neighbors. Shared resources and finances beg to be overhauled when Mercury goes retrograde August 12 and it behooves you to give discussions time, and play the peacemaker. As much as you love to travel, stay in town for this. Partners both in love and in business need you.
And this means review time as well. Going over old ground, forgiveness, and making up. This will be very important to you long term and to your soul, although you may feel too hurt or proud at this moment to even consider it.
You might also explode and totally blow it, so be careful. Would it kill you to admit you may have made an error? To err is human, you know. So, no, it wouldn’t kill you.
Retrograde is all about going backwards, right? Going over stuff from the past. Over and over. Re-examining. Every step, every action. Rewind the video of your life. Over and over. What really happened. Rewind as many times as you need. You must catch every detail. Can’t miss, nor skip, a beat.
What you’ve done. What you can do better. How you can make your life better.
Backwards means past, so old financial arrangements resurface from the past at this time, too.
Wise old Saturn, ruling your toughest lessons, goes direct in your eleventh house of friends August 25, delivering its final kick, stronger now because it only has a few months left – until December 19, to be precise – to teach you what it want you to learn.
With your important friendships you must be meticulous. No short cuts. Saturn, AKA Father TIME, hates short cuts!! So give it TIME. Do it right. That’s it.
I’m such a psychic nag…but seriously, you will be SO glad you did this. The most positive part of this is that you name the friends with whom you feel most comfortable. Those you can really be yourself with. Your true self. Putting on a show, or trying to keep up with the Whomevers, is so deeply exhausting, isn’t it? This is true freedom. And it’s priceless. Can’t be bought.
Work-wise brilliant new deals are ahead and a fork in the road presents itself. Complete clarity is not yours until September begins so best to concentrate on what must be done before that time.
Also on the loves you do have in your life, for you are absolutely adored!
In your seventh marriage house you have: Lifesaving sun, sexy Mars, and that almighty solar eclipse coming up on Monday, August 21!
Here is where you will experience your greatest sea-change:
Friendship and Co-operation
Discussions about beauty and harmony
Everyone will be talking about this Leo solar eclipse! So here’s what’s what.
Already named “The Great American Eclipse”, this Leo wonder will stretch across fourteen states from Oregon to South Carolina. A stellar twist on making America great (again), it will actually eclipse the country, darkening the sun and turning day to night. “A thing most strange,” as Shakespeare wrote in Macbeth.
You don’t need to watch in order to experience its life-changing effects. Native Americans say it is a sacred union of sun and moon, and it is not for us to watch.
Eclipsing visibility, blocking light, cover-ups, alternative facts, all take center stage.
For your individual sign – check your ascendant and Jupiter also – here’s where what’s hidden comes to light.
And where you experience a sea change, for better or worse.
You can finally be honest about:
Aries: True passions. Your creations / offspring.
Taurus: Home and property. Your parents.
Gemini: Your words and gestures. Close relatives.
Cancer: Finances. What you own.
Leo: Your body. Appearance in the world.
Virgo: Your unconscious. Private dreams.
Libra: Friends. Your alliances and groups.
Scorpio: Public self. Life direction.
Sagittarius: Your education. Cultures different from yours.
Capricorn: That you share with another. (Money or intimacy.)
Aquarius: Deals and agreements.
Pisces: Health. Your work routines.
Gemini’s gestures to impress cease – and she can be exactly who she is. Libra can stop trying to please friends and social groups and just be himself. Aries can be truthful about her passions, Taurus about his parents’ origins, Cancer about finances, Leo about his maturing body, Capricorn about what she has shared, Aquarius about what agreements she’s made, and so on. Uncomfortable initially, but such relief.
Leo Robert Mueller shines in the news after the eclipse – with a different direction. OY? What’s this?
Astrologers vary with their eclipse predictions and not to join the alarmist American bandwagon, only to note: after unrest in Charleston, water and tides will be massively lifted, more attacks in and from DC, and America as a whole experiences a huge financial shift. I’m also advising clients not to move to Oregon.
And there’s more detail – for you individually.
The eclipse covers 1,500 miles in 90 minutes. Unprecedented since June 8, 1918, with echoes going back to August 11, 1999. What were you doing August 11, 1999? Check your old diaries.
I predict hubris will fall, just as Icarus did. Wherever we have felt so inadequate that we had to cover up, impress, even lie, we can finally let it all go. Let it all fall, like idols on pedestals, like desperate gestures. We will be free of pride and illusion. C. S. Lewis wrote that pride is the anti-God state.
“It was through Pride that the devil became the devil. Pride leads to every other vice. It is the complete anti-God state of mind.”
Wikipedia describes HUBRIS:
In its ancient Greek context, it describes behavior that challenges the gods which in turn brings about the downfall of the perpetrator of hubris. Hubris indicates a loss of contact with reality.
Icarus was punished by the gods for hubris, flying too close to the sun, the fire melting his false wax wings, and he fell from the sky. Just as Trump’s hubris will bring about his fall. What better illustration than looking defiantly at the sun during its sacred union with the moon? The reality – his blindness – will be glaring.
This will be a time of reckoning for those who have allowed pride and greed to take over to the extent that they are no longer healthy. Forcing the eyes open is a painful surgery! So don’t be surprised if, prior to your deeper vision, you are in agony.
The planet of reckoning is wise Saturn, which rules Capricorn, which rules foundations.
And Saturn goes direct August 25, four days after the eclipse. The pendulum swings back. Watch: August 21 – 26.
Capricorn can finally be truthful about shared monies. Higher ups who don’t will fall, beginning with (statue) Capricorn Robert E. Lee (almost half his chart is Capricorn: Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, Chiron) to still extant Capricorns Anthony Scaramucci, Jared Kushner, Donald Trump, Jr, Eric Trump, Jeff Sessions, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Michael Flynn. And in North Korea, Capricorn Kim Jong-un.
Capricorn Betsy DeVos continues to be protected by Libra Jupiter until October 10 (as do Libra Jupiter Donald Trump and his daughter Ivanka Trump, also a Libra Jupiter.)
As the sun’s power is eclipsed, the moon’s power brightens. Revealing unconscious drives, the inner movement of the world, the energy of the water on the earth: All that is ruled by the moon.
A fascinating point about the moon: It rules need.
When does need become greed, and when does addiction take over?
When does addiction become so powerful that other beings are disregarded?
When does a sociopathic disorder begin?
For the world, this will be overwhelmingly positive. After much doublespeak, the truth – no matter what it reveals – will be a great relief. August’s last week will be an eye-opener, in every sense of the word.
Every country has its secrets, but the two most highlighted during this time will be America (higher ups coming off their pedestals) and to a lesser extent Britain (the royal family.)
I end with Shakespeare again – the greatest, Leo Jupiter – who always wrote of the direct connection between the heavens, stars, nature, animals, and human beings.
For YOU it’s in your zone of love and pleasure, and obligations you’ve made to others. There is meant to be delayed satisfaction.
If you spurt at this time, to go faster, you will just find yourself running on a hamster wheel.
Why not just take some time out and ENJOY it. Why not? If you shout, you won’t be heard. Thrash your frustration into a pillow if you have to, then go back to enjoying your production or party.
At the same time, you will be clearing out your house like crazy! Go all the way, dear Aquarius. It will bring you fresh energy and revitalize you.
You’re casting off the burdens of the past, and facing with hope and vigor your better future.
Before you splurge, just make sure to check all the details, particularly with a partner in finance or one representing you, such as an agent, or lawyer.
Get everything in writing, and don’t be sorry.
You give birth to yourself in a whole new way this August. It’s a brave and impossible step – and you do it.
Ready to see where the road will lead? Which doors will open now?
If you feel hesitant, or haven’t been read before, please read what my clients say.
