August brings support for finances, self-worth, and for how you value yourself. How much you ask to be paid. What is owed to you. Your possessions and belongings. All important now. You can ask for the world.
Go for it, Cancer. You deserve it. You have worked so incredibly hard this past year – on every single level – and you deserve reward, but you also deserve some breaks and a time of peace, with no more conflict, no more endless worry. And, again my friend, you will get it.
If one of your valued possessions goes missing this August – which it will (hello, Mercury retrograde!) – you will feel surprisingly bereft. It is because, really, it is substitute for valuing the self. For valuing YOUR self. You’re doing better in holding back your irritation at those who do not value you as you feel you should be valued, but it’s time to come clean with someone you don’t feel right about. Someone honestly doesn’t know what’s going on and needs to hear it from you. No confrontation, just communication. Venus in your sign has you looking gorgeous so it’s confusing for people. You are charismatic and charming when you don’t even feel like it.
Before August 8 be careful with your temper. You could seriously blow it, so thus the warning. Do not shout! It will only backfire and ruin your efforts.
Keeping your professional reputation is a challenge as August begins. If you could just…if everyone could just… RELAX more.
Mercury is about to go retrograde in your third house of siblings and neighbors and the internet. So no spouting off! The thinking planet is going backwards, slowing down from Saturday, August 12 to Tuesday, September 5.
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.
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. How you can make your life better.
Wise old Saturn, your toughest lesson, goes direct in Sagittarius August 25, and is preparing to deliver its final kick – stronger now because it is in its last few months of classes for you. Finals time: in your health, your work, your everyday routine, how you take care of yourself and others – including pets. Take care of the cat /dog / parrot! Be conscientious, even if your heart isn’t in it.
You deserve so much happiness, sweet Crab, and August is all about giving it to you. Mid-August is amazing for you and partners and new arrangements. Much of which is financial. Which is very hot in your life right now. For in your second house of money and self-worth you have the most number of planets.
In your second financial house you have:
A new Leo Moon (your ruler)
A new Leo Moon solar eclipse (double whammy!) on Monday, August 21
The only warning of August is its two eclipses, both involving your ruler (which affects you deeply.) The first is on Monday, August 7, with a full moon (your ruler) and lunar eclipse in Aquarius, and then – oh wow – a new moon (still your ruler) and solar eclipse in Leo on Monday, August 21. This is when you ask your spouse or boyfriend or girlfriend or parents – or even your children – to tie you up so you don’t become a werewolf. It’s a huge deal. And timely, because the U.S.A. is also a Crab. Double Crab, actually.
Here, you share the horoscope with a country! Both you and the U.S. will experience a financial shift and new status.
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.
For you, Crab, look deeply into your second home. Your second house will be altered. For good, and forever.
