While you often enjoy keeping a low profile, this month you may be in high demand. You’re scheduled to learn how to balance your public and personal life more effectively. You may be considering changing your place of residence. 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 and re-evaluate your situation in mid-September.
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. Group activities could feel especially energizing.
With Uranus going retrograde this month, you’ll have the chance to take charge of your time. It’s possible that others have been putting demands on your schedule, leaving little time for the things you’d like to do. In the coming months, you may be craving more freedom. Take the opportunity to be spontaneous and express your creativity in new ways. It will be a good time to break out of old ruts and return to some of the activities that make you feel vibrant. By the time Uranus stations direct on January 2, 2018, it will be apparent to others that you’ve been breaking out of some of your old patterns.
This month, we’ll experience two Eclipses that offer powerful realizations and the inspiration for new beginnings. The Lunar Eclipse on August 7th will activate your 10th house of public image, as well as your 4th house of home and family. Both of these areas of life could feel active around this time. Others may look to you for leadership. Keep in mind that Lunar Eclipses can stir up drama. Set a good example for others by maintaining a logical perspective.
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 to close a chapter of your career, but this may open the door to exciting new possibilities. 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.
