Get the Big Picture of What to Expect this Month as the Planets Affect Your Sun Sign
Thursday, August 17, 2017
Pisces (2/20 - 3/21)
August’s astrology contains potent energies to help you finish work-related projects and set the stage for new challenges. The Leo Sun will shine in your 6th house of daily work and wellness through August 21st, making this a great time to gain recognition for a job well done. On August 22nd, the Sun will move into Virgo and your 7th house of partnership. Use the remaining days of August to determine how you can most effectively help others.
Don’t be afraid to let your talents shine this month. You’ll be primed to take center stage, but because Mercury will be retrograde from August 12th to September 5th, it won’t be advisable to initiate new projects. Instead, capitalize on your past efforts and don’t be afraid to take credit for your hard work. Your impressive track record will likely gain you the support you need for a new idea. Once Mercury is direct next month, you’ll be off to the races!
During the first days of August, we’ll already be in the “shadow phase” of Mercury retrograde, which will encourage resolving the past. With Mercury in retrograde through your 7th house of partnership, you could reconnect with an old friend or lover. It will also be a good time to clear up past misunderstandings within a current relationship.
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, you’ll have a chance to take stock of material assets and personal talents. Use this time period to develop innovative money making ideas. What is the best use of your unique skill set?
In the coming months, you’ll have the opportunity to reconnect with your inner authority. Even if you don’t feel comfortable in a traditional leadership role, review what you consider to be your areas of expertise. It’s time to take ownership of your ability and put it to good work. When Uranus stations direct on January 2, 2018, you’ll have a chance to test some of your ideas. Remember that Uranus has an experimental energy, so don’t get too attached to any one idea.
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 6th house of daily work and wellness as well as your 12th house of spirituality. You’ll likely be seeking more meaning from your day-to-day life, and relationships could become a priority. If you’re feeling upset that your ideals don’t match your daily life right now, be gentle with yourself. You could be experiencing a wake up call, but the days surrounding a Lunar Eclipse often feel overly dramatic. Trust in your ability to creative positive change in your life and the gradual process this entails.
On the 21st, a Solar Eclipse in Leo will initiate endings and beginnings related to your work and/or daily habits. Because Mercury will be retrograde, focus on resolving the past. It will be a potent time to re-instate healthy routines and refine a long-term project. You’ll have the motivation and discernment to elevate your work to the next level. After mid-September, when the Mercury retrograde energy clears, you’ll be supported to take on new mental and physical challenges.
