During the first weeks of August, the Leo Sun lights up your 6th house of daily routines and wellness. You’ll be encouraged to care for your body, but keep the focus on having fun. Dancing can be great exercise! If you’re trying to eat healthier, consider hosting a potluck where you can exchange healthy recipes with others. On August 22nd, the Sun moves into Virgo and your 7th house of partnership. Use the remaining days of August to tend to practical details with a partner or friend. Using the buddy system can help make a cleaning or organizing chore more enjoyable.
Mercury is retrograde from August 12th to September 5th, which encourages finalizing unfinished projects. It will also be a great time to reconnect with people from your past. You and a former partner could have the chance to resolve an old conflict. If single, keep things casual with any new love interests. Once Mercury is direct next month, new commitments and relationships will be supported.
With Uranus going retrograde this month, you may be seeking more financial freedom. You could be feeling limited by your possessions or financial obligations. Avoid making big decisions right now, but do take note of how you’re feeling. Next month you’ll be supported to move forward with your ideas. In the coming months, you’ll be learning to take charge of your resources. If you’ve been relying on others for financial advice or assistance, you may feel ready to be more self-sufficient. When Uranus stations direct on January 2, 2018, it’s likely that you’ll feel more confident about your personal financial goals.
You may need to create some healthy boundaries with others if they are trying to influence how you spend your money or utilize your resources. That said, Uranus can create an impulsive energy. Be sure to research any major financial decisions thoroughly. Trust your instincts. If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
This month, we’ll experience two Eclipses that offer powerful realizations and the inspiration for new beginnings. The Lunar Eclipse on August 7th activates your 6th house of routines and wellness, as well as your 12th house of spirituality. This will be a good time to incorporate a meditation or prayer practice into your daily schedule. You could feel more connected with your subconscious. Keep a dream journal to capture creative ideas that may come to you now.
On the 21st, a Solar Eclipse in Leo initiates endings and beginnings related to daily habits. It is a potent time to re-instate healthy routines and revise your schedule to allow for more of the activities you enjoy. Make creative expression a priority. You’ll be awakened to your inner artist! This Eclipse is supporting your vision and imagination. How can you begin to tell your story through the written word, music, art or other modalities?
