Astrology Transits Newsletter August 2016

There is progress whether ye are going forward or backward! The thing is to move! — Edgar Cayce



Jack Russell ready for actionThe month of August 2016 finds us primed and ready for action and new adventures. The new Moon on August 2nd in the sign of Leo set the stage for forward momentum, personal confidence and taking the lead toward your goals. The new Moon each month is a great time to set goals for the coming month.

Mars, the planet of action, finished its backward journey into Scorpio on June 29. It moved out of Scorpio into Sagittarius on August 2nd and is now moving confidently forward through that sign. I can almost hear all of you Scorpios, and those of you with key planets in Scorpio, letting out a collective sigh of relief.

Saturn, the planet of limitation, hard work and practicality will turn forward direct on August 13 in the sign of Sagittarius. Work and projects that were started in mid-April this year can now be fired up again, reworked and successfully implemented. Pay attention to what transpires around August 13 as that energy will be front and center during the September 1 solar eclipse.

When the planet of action (Mars) joins the planet of practicality (Saturn) on August 22, it is time to pull out all the stops in moving toward your goals. Mars’ impetuous actions are harnessed when it contacts Saturn–action meets reality and lays down a firm foundation. Any progress made now through the month of August will have lasting results.

The minor full Moon lunar eclipse on August 18 on the Aquarius/Leo axis is beneficial for letting go of unused, unwanted and unnecessary possessions (and yes, even people) in your life. This is especially true for the fixed signs (Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius and Taurus). If ever there were a time to “thing big” this is it! An aura of excitement, opportunity and “specialness” is in the air. Leos in particular, may feel new energy around love.

The Sun enters Virgo on August 22, where it will be joined by the Moon on September 1 when it forms a new Moon solar eclipse at 9 degrees Virgo. This will be a strong eclipse that will be opposing Neptune and squaring Saturn. Those with their Sun or other personal planets in Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces and Gemini will feel the effects of the eclipse most strongly.

Bulldog looking backwardThe energy changes on August 30 when Mercury turns retrograde (apparent backward motion) at 29 degrees Virgo. Mercury resumes forward motion on September 21 at 14 degrees Virgo.  Retrograde Mercury gives you an excellent opportunity to reassess and fine tune the plans you made and the projects you started in the first part of August.

In closing consider this quote by Steve Jobs:  You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life. – Steve Jobs
