Get the Big Picture of What to Expect this Month as the Planets Affect Your Sun Sign
Friday, August 18, 2017
Scorpio (10/23 -11/22)
You may find yourself in the spotlight this month being recognized for a job well done. The Leo Sun will highlight your 10th house of career and public image through August 21st, making it a great time to make presentations and impress authority figures. On August 22nd, the Sun will move into Virgo and your 11th house of friendship and community. The remainder of August will be ideal for collaborating on group projects and working in your community.
You could be torn between responsibilities at work and home this month. You’re due for changes that can help you balance your public and personal lives more effectively. Mercury will be retrograde from August 12th to September 5th, so it won’t be advisable to make life-changing decisions at this time. Instead, research your options—it’s possible that some of the limitations you feel may be self-imposed.
During the first days of August, we’ll already be in the “shadow phase” of Mercury retrograde, which discourages making new commitments. With Mercury in retrograde through your 11th house of friendship and community, you’re likely to reconnect with friends or associates from your past. It will be great timing to reach out to former co-workers or get back to a group that you used to enjoy participating in.
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 the chance to notice where you feel out of touch with your needs on a daily basis. There is a part of you that’s waiting to be set free!
In the coming months, you’ll have the opportunity to reconnect with your authentic self. Think back to the times in your life when you felt the most alive. How can you weave elements of this time period into your current life? Even if your current circumstances seem to be limiting your freedom, seek the small pleasures that uplift your spirit. When Uranus stations direct on January 2, 2018, you could be ready to implement bigger changes.
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 10th house of career and public image as well as your 4th house of home and family. Both of these areas of life could feel active around this time. You may need to step back and get a more detached perspective on your situation. While things could feel overly emotional, focus on facts and logic. People will admire your leadership skills when you can show them the big picture and demonstrate the ability to sidestep drama.
On the 21st, a Solar Eclipse in Leo will initiate endings and beginnings related to career and/or public image. Because Mercury will be retrograde, focus on what you need to release from your life at this time. It’s possible that you are ready for a new beginning in your work life or desire to change how others perceive you. This could require letting go of self-doubt and fear. You’ll be initiating a new phase of life over the next six months that will encourage you to let more of your talents shine. Research opportunities to share your gifts with a larger audience. After mid-September, when the Mercury retrograde energy clears, you’ll be well positioned to move forward with new plans.
