All about your career, your career, your career. Never enough! And everyone wanting everything from you on top of it… You are SO ready to get away from it all. You’ll have a host of responsibilities to return to soon enough, so fly away while you can, little sparrow! Noble you deserves to travel, explore, have fun. Nothing else will do. Sick of figuring finances and arrangements, August needs to open with a big fat adventure.
Exploring the new refreshes your perspective, too, SO horribly convoluted with the recent demands placed on you. By mid-August, if you haven’t traveled and replenished yourself in some form I will eat my hat.
You’ll have plenty to deal with in your career when Mercury goes retrograde in it Saturday, August 12 to Tuesday, September 5. Here we go…
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 have to see every detail. Can’t miss, nor skip, a beat. Getting it right this time.
What you’ve done. What you can do better. How you can make your life better.
Backwards means the past, too, so old work projects, even favorable press, will resurface from the past at this time.
Wise old Saturn, ruling your toughest lessons, goes direct in your sign August 25, delivering its final kick, stronger now because it has only three plus months left with you. You’ve done well, Sag, so just figure what needs to be finished up in terms of your life classes.
I’m such a psychic nag…but seriously, you will be glad you did this. The most positive part of this is that you name to yourself the people with whom you feel most comfortable. Those with whom you can really relax with and be yourself. 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.
Because of this, fantastic mentors begin appearing now. You will love this. You have been going by your own light for so long. August will bring you a huge spiritual mentor and a huge career mentor. Let me know what happens!
The terrific line up in your ninth zone of philosophy, travel, publishing, law, academia, foreign lands and foreign contacts is impressive, to say the least.
If you feel that you have been limited to just your country – now it’s time to expand!
This means that you’ll travel more, speak more abroad, and your work will likely spread beyond this country. You find yourself more involved in other cultures.
In your ninth 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:
Travels and Exploration
Cultures and lands far away
Expanding your viewpoint, broadening your horizons
College, School, Classes
Law and lawyers
Everyone will be talking about this Leo solar eclipse! So here’s the drill.
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.
YOU, however, become pickier now in terms of what you spend, and what you save. You find you can do with less STUFF for one thing. A spring-cleaning of your second house of cash and possessions creates a much more positive work environment for you.
However hard on yourself you are (and that you are), and however the amount of work you have to do to stay in your good place, you’ve got to admit you’re in a much more triumphant place than ever before! If you’re worried about where you’ve settled, know that it’s the right place.
You can hold your head high in pride when you see your old partners. You made it.
And your recent triumph is having an effect that’s contrary to the one everyone expected. You’ve made an unbelievable 180-degree turn and deserve to be celebrated. Everything looks different.
You’ve revolutionized your path – not an easy task!
Keep up the great work, ignore (when you can) the miniature hoodlums at your knees (or stomach), and don’t forget to exercise!
What forbidden path is tempting you to explore it now? I don’t think you can resist it, do you?
The ninth house is traditionally ruled by you (Sagittarius), and exemplifies all those qualities you have in abundance: exploring, teaching, learning, traveling, understanding, broadening your mind and horizons, and far off cultures.
When it becomes too deafening in your house, remember to get out of it a little bit. You’re still wanted in the outside world, you know, dear Sag.
You’re still meant to be starring in the Anything-Can-Happen-Next Show that is your life. Oh, yeah!
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.
I look forward to speaking with you, Sagittarius. In your own private session.
