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.
They say March is in like a lion and out like a lamb… weather wise at least. But what do the stars say? Will they support the groundhog’s prediction of an early spring or foretell a longer winter’s nap? “Misty water-colored memories” is an incredible lyric from the film The Way We Were. The lyric and film title may very well be the theme for March 2019. It accurately describes the emotions sifting through us now as we head into some key cosmic gear shifts…
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?
