After 1,000 crazy changes, your path begins to smooth, the sun opens its smile to welcome you in loving Leo, and rams are at play in the fifth fun house. Pain in the ass Uranus slows down in your sign on August 3, and, you my dear, have finally earned your holiday. Rude shocks cease, and everyone is nicer to you! There’s even new romance in the air and you’re given a new role to play on the world stage. A worthy part which resonates among your professional colleagues under a full Aquarius Moon and lunar eclipse on Monday, August 7 – and positively explodes under the new Leo Moon and total solar eclipse on Monday, August 21. It’s the equivalent of winning a starry Oscar.
To allow this experience to be as deeply enjoyable as it’s intended you must let the work details and particulars slide. It’s going to be Mercury retrograde in your exacting work and health routine house August 12 until September 5, so there’s no point sweating the small stuff (and it’s all small stuff) then. That stuff will all change again anyway, so just forgeddaboutit! You’ll tie yourself up in knots if you don’t, and you’ll miss the fabulous ride of a lifetime, playing large and generous like a properly adored Aries.
And I mean ride of a lifetime literally. You’ll not see the likes of this again in your own lifetime. The Monday, August 21 Leo total solar eclipse. Here it is, Aries. Full on in your most passionate house – and all the areas this house rules.
Take your pick. One or more of these energies from your fun house will be going hog-wild:
Romance & Art
Conceiving and brainstorming new projects: CREATIVITY
Falling in love
Your children and having Children
Your lusty desires and joyful sexual self
Parties and theater
Fun and playing and dressing up
Taking a leap of faith
Everyone will be talking about this Leo solar eclipse!
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 he can be exactly who he is. Libra can stop trying to please friends and social groups and just be herself. 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 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?
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.
And for Aries, the sight, your view, is pretty darned good!
August is your Power Month, you re-mount grand-style, and you manage – superbly.
You are going to use this month to make your life FABULOUS. How? By flowing with it, by not fighting the tide, by entering that retrograde swimming motion as if your life depended on it.
With the balance of power in your fifth fun house it’s time to give yourself permission to slow down, relax…You don’t need to be all things to everyone. No one will get lost without you!
Go ahead and feed your soul a bit more, please. Because you do need to be all things for yourself.
I will explain. Mercury is retrograde in your sixth house Tuesday, July 25 until Saturday, August 12. Your work, your health, your daily routine, your productivity, your pets. Also covers people who work for you, from your assistant to your webmaster to your janitor.
Retrograde is 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. Getting it right this time.
Write it down and record it, if it helps. You are here to make the record straight.
What you’ve done. What you can do better.
Wise old Saturn, your toughest lesson, is back – direct as of August 25. No use blaming others here. Saturn wants you to take the responsibility yourself. Saturn always has the last word, don’t even try…start cleaning up your act now. Because August 25, the reckoning comes in the areas of your ninth house (travel, publishing, spreading the word, education, legal matters). In these areas, you must be truthful, clean, meticulous. No short cuts. Saturn, Father TIME, hates short cuts!! Give it TIME. Do it properly. Do it right.
I’m such a psychic nag…but seriously, you will be SO glad you did this. The rewards are priceless. Can’t be bought.
Okay, what else?
Lovey Venus enters your fourth house of home (and early family home in particular) on Monday, July 31, and it’s all love, love, love. You’re happy there.
You are opening your arms to a completely new chapter in your life. There are changes everywhere.
Just remember to curb the spending, and you’ll do great. Those who are still having conversations with da money people and such, you may want to ask yourself: Why is it I really don’t want to grow up yet? It most often has to do with the father figure in your life.
Maturity is hard to obtain, mostly because it can’t be taught. You have to learn it yourself. As the great philosopher Kierkegaard says, “Life is a hard teacher. She gives the test first, the lesson after.”
Now, let’s get back to the fun stuff.
Are you still crying about not having enough intimacy with your partner? Or about not having a partner at all? Or if you’re a creator, not being inspired enough?
GOOD NEWS. New Lion Moon in your fifth love house TWICE in a row. July 23 and then again August 21.
Insecurity stops plaguing your subconscious and fears of being old and alone. Meaning you can get pickier now in terms of which projects (or which lovers) you take on. You don’t have to take all on now to cover your bases. No more scarcity!
You feel more and more centered as August continues, and true JOY comes into the picture. What a relief! You’ve been going, going, going so much, you have forgotten what this is…
Time for your own private session?

With love, Madalyn
