This month’s Astrological Aspects
You have been focusing back on the past during the last week of July, there were significant opportunities with both Mercury stationing retrograde; and Mars merging energy with the Nodes and the Moon, with that powerful Lunar Eclipse. Mercury causes us to focus on our inner world, how we thought about issues, decisions we made, conversations we had and how well they went. We have an opportunity until August 19 to review and replay some of this. Because our focus in so heavily on the inside when covering old ground, we can take our eye off our outer world, and that’s where some of the glitches, that Mercury is so famous for, take place. Now, in the “dragon hole” between the two eclipses, it’s time to take advantage of any deeper understandings and healing that came through for you, and power forward using the dynamic energy of the Sun and North Node in Leo.
It may be a little difficult to gain traction with the projects you have been trying to push forward in an outer, material sense, as Mars and Uranus will be intensifying their conflicting relationship in the first few days of the month. We will all be experiencing some degree of frustration in some area of our lives, depending on where this is playing out in our chart. When Uranus joins Mars in retrograde motion on August 8, it will leave just Venus and Jupiter out of all the planets, having a strong influence in outwardly moving forward. Viewed by ancient astrologers as bringing good luck and money, they will add to the opportunities coming your way from the Sun being in the rulership of the Lion.
The third and final eclipse with the Leo New Moon on August 11, will help you determine what it is you really want from your relationships and what your responsibilities to others should consist of. Leo energy connects to your inner child and enables you to seek fun, use your creativity to its greatest potential and helps you to empower both yourself and others.
Challenging aspects will exist to the luminaries from asteroids Juno, representing the formalities and rules of marriage, and Hopi representing the more nature aligned approach of “is it working”, used by the Native American Indian women. Diana in a pair with Greek counterpart Artemis, the archetypes of freedom to roam independently and connect with nature, will form a harmonious trine to Sol and Luna at the same time. Under the electrifying energy brought by the eclipse you may come to new conclusions about how your current view of relationship is enhancing or restricting your ability to shine in your true light.
The clarity of the Virgo full Moon on August will enable you to clearly see the whole process from this intense eclipse season and will help you integrate your findings into your daily life through routines and habits which will establish a healthy mind, body and soul.
