Get the Big Picture of What to Expect this Month as the Planets Affect Your Sun Sign
Thursday, August 17, 2017
Aquarius (1/20 - 2/20)
You’ll gain new insights about yourself this month and you’ll have a greater awareness about your interactions with others. If you were born February 2nd - 6th, of any year, you’ll likely feel an emotional shift around the August 7th Lunar Eclipse. You’ll be working with themes related to love, compromise, self-respect, and generosity.
The Leo Sun will shine in your 7th house of romance and creativity through August 21st, making this a great time to have fun with friends and lovers. On August 22nd, the Sun will move into Virgo and your 8th house of intimacy and shared resources. Use the remaining days of August to organize works in progress and follow up on a collaborative project.
This month’s astrology promotes romance and having fun! If single, you could meet someone special, but because Mercury will be retrograde from August 12th to September 5th, it won’t be advisable to commit to a new relationship. Don’t let that stop you from socializing and enjoying the company of others, however! Once Mercury is direct next month, you’ll be able to see your relationships more clearly.
During the first days of August, we’ll already be in the “shadow phase” of Mercury retrograde, which will encourage wrapping up unfinished business. With Mercury in retrograde through your 8th house of intimacy, hidden information, and shared resources, it will be a good time to catch up on bookkeeping. You may also reconnect with a former partner to gain closure and/or forgiveness.
Just when Uranus reaches the final degrees of Aries, it will station retrograde on August 3rd, prolonging its journey through this sign until mid-May of 2018. (However, it will dip back into Aries briefly November 2018 - early March 2019.) When Uranus goes retrograde this month, your mind may feel busier than usual. Uranus is your ruling planet, making you more sensitive to its effects. You’re being asked to make some changes to the way you perceive and express information.
In the coming months, you’ll have the opportunity to reconnect with your authentic voice. You could feel empowered to champion for “the underdog” and you could be inspired to solve problems in an innovative way. Avoid taking drastic action over the next few months. Work towards your goals incrementally, and when Uranus stations direct on January 2, 2018, you’ll be well positioned to reach a wider audience.
This month, we’ll experience two Eclipses that will offer powerful realizations and the inspiration for new beginnings. The Lunar Eclipse on August 7th will activate your 7th house of partnership as well as your 1st house of self. During the days around this Eclipse, your attention could be focused on a partnership from the past or present. This time period will serve as a check in for anything you began thinking about during the Eclipses that occurred in February of this year. Since then, you’ve been learning how to balance your needs with those of others. Remember that Eclipses heighten the sense of drama in the atmosphere. For best results, discuss emotionally charged topics a few days after the Eclipse has passed.
On the 21st, a Solar Eclipse in Leo will initiate endings and beginnings related to romantic relationships, platonic friendships, or business partnerships. Because Mercury will be retrograde, focus on resolving the past. You may consider renegotiating an existing partnership or agreement. Avoid entering new partnerships or contracts now, even though you may feel the need for a fresh start. After mid-September, when the Mercury retrograde energy clears, you’ll be supported to initiate new relationships.
