It gets lonely and cold climbing all by yourself that huge endless mountain of survival and self-control. I know. But August is the month of your legacy. The universe has this. It’s like it’s already written. Everyone sees it for you.
Your friends are rooting for you, but while Mercury is retrograde in your eleventh house of friends (August 12 – September 5) it might not feel that way as messages get delayed and cross and fall out all over the place.
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.
A lot of old friends will resurface from the past at this time teaching you various things.
Wise old Saturn, ruling your toughest lessons, goes direct in your second financial house August 25, delivering its final kick, stronger now because it’s in its last three months of teaching you what needs to be taught. It doesn’t come back for another 28 years, so it wants to do the job right. You must be meticulous in your finances. 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 glad you did this. The most positive part of this experience is that you realize what it is you really need, and what it is you don’t. Your priorities. This is true freedom. And it’s priceless. Can’t be bought.
So this month is a huge time for you, loaded with all which you are. A hidden, wise, and kinder-than-all soul. What you have learned comes from LEARNING IT. Hard experience.
I never have to tell you — as I do our more impulsive fire signs! — Kierkegaard’s “Life is a hard teacher. She gives the test first, the lesson after.” You wrote the book, honey…
And it’s not all honey, honey — as you very well know! What did you inherit from your parents, and why? There was a brilliant untouchable reason you chose your parents. Realize why now, and you may conquer the world.
If you haven’t realized it yet, this is a happening time for you. Here is just a brief line up promising your future goodies in your tenth house. Aspects of yourself manifesting in the world should have been coming clear as day lately. This clarity takes different forms.
In your tenth 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:
Your public reputation
Your life path
Income from your main profession
Striving and attainment
And often — your MOTHER.
Everyone will be talking about this Leo solar eclipse! Here’s the drill on what’s coming up.
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? Check 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.
This will definitely help YOU with decisions about work. Survival has been the key stress here. Now that’s gone, you’ll be able to decide more clearly.
You’ve been dealing with so many dark sides – not only of yourself, but of other people’s – that you had to keep yourself cool to avoid getting burned. Now the dark turns into light, and you are free to feel again.
Congratulations. You swam and climbed and came a long way to be here.
You may be feeling a little cut off from life…but not to worry! Some necessary changes are taking place, most beneath the surface, and you just need some time before you feel like jumping in again with both feet. Take a break — especially from others’ demands. That’s a lot of activity not being made available to your conscious mind!
Don’t worry about all those commitments you generally worry about. You’re on the right track, you need to take your own sweet time now, and you’ll know when to move forward.
You’re looking VERY good right now. Beautiful, actually.
You are a natural worrier, and this only makes it better.
Enjoy it right where it is.
Ready to see where the road will lead? Which doors will open now?
