August 2019 Astrological forecast offers you all you need to know about the energies this month - ALL NEW, ALL THE TIME. After July's chaotic eclipse and retrograde season, August gives us a beautiful opportunity to begin our month and lives afresh. The month opens with a brand spanking 🌑New Moon and you can firmly hear the Roar of August’s signature ♌︎Leo the Lion. Four, yes 4 planets are in this fiery, fertile sign!
Are you ready for change? With 2 eclipses, 2 new moons and Mercury Retrograde, you may have no choice! The intense cosmic activity asks us as individuals and as a nation, where is our compassion these days? Are we acting in the most nurturing way possible for all involved? July is a very active celestial month. Right out of the gate BOOM go the fireworks! We barely scratch the surface of this first full month of ⛱summer when on Tuesday, July 2nd , the 🌑New Moon occurs. Not just any old New Moon, July kick starts a fresh lunar cycle with a Solar Eclipse.
The third and final month of Spring continues to offer a great push forward. Take advantage of this full steam ahead energy before eclipse season and Mercury retrograde in July. Plant and tend to all relationships and endeavors you want to grow. June veritably drips with abundant opportunities to build the life you desire from the ground up. You really don’t have to look that hard; simply be open and open-minded to what is around and available to you.
April showers (or retrogrades), bring May flowers… RIGHT!?!?! May is rarely a quiet month. Gardeners and outdoor workers go into overdrive; weddings and graduations multiply like rabbits, endings leading to new beginnings abound. In recognition of this, the cosmos is accordingly calm this May, acknowledging that our plates are FULL. There is more than enough keeping us occupied without excess planetary tricks. BUT… there is still a lot going on…
Our need to slow down and rest a bit is similar to a planet’s retrograde passage. Just around the corner in early March, Mercury will turn retrograde for the first time this year. In fact, every calendar year, Mercury turns retrograde two to three times, for weeks each cycle. Some of us are aware of when this will occur and actually prepare for it as much as possible; others caught up in the midst of this activity wonder why their calls aren’t being returned, their tech devices are going haywire, their packages are delayed. Here’s the deal: except for the Sun and Moon, all planets turn retrograde. Why…. and what do you need to know about it?
You may know your astrology sign but do you know its element? No worries. Most people don’t. We are so much more than our Sun sign. Each of us is a composite of ALL the planets at the moment of our birth. And each of these planets, like our Sun, is in a particular sign which is influenced by a particular element. The missing element in our astrological chart is one of the biggest clues to our behavior. Knowing this is equally important as understanding a dominance of planets in a particular element.
Many of us know our astrological Sun signs. But have you ever wondered what makes one, say for example Leo, so completely different from another Leo that you think they’re totally opposite Sun signs? Not all Leos are created alike, for good reason. Each of us is a composite of every planet in the galaxy. From the Sun all the way out to Pluto, each planet plays a role in our lives. MERCURY IS THE MESSENGER. This little planet close to the Sun rules our mind, our thoughts, communication, how we think and speak. Where this little planet was located at the time of your birth can give you powerful insight into how we each absorb, process and shares information…
