August 2020

As you moved into the second half of July Mars, in the first full month of his longest visit to your relationship sector in 32 years, received some push back from the asteroid Juno and while this may have created some personal and/or relationship tension, this month you get to enjoy the benefits. Juno might only be an asteroid but the queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships returned to Libra in November for what should have been a two month visit but as if sensing how important her presence would become, she stayed on and is still here. There has been continuous planetary activity in your relationship sector for the last nine decades with the dwarf planet Eris, warrior princess of the cosmos here since 1926. However, with Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos here as well and not leaving until January, last month saw Juno roll up her sleeves and confront him head on. While Juno is the queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships, in Libra she is demanding a balance between your personal and relationship needs and that is what was put to the test last month. This won't be repeated but the message delivered, both sides benefit this month. You will find your personal confidence rise but also, with the Sun in your friendship sector until 23rd August and Mercury, the planet of communication from 5th August to 20th August you will feel the support for communication, friendship and relationship building. In the meantime, Venus will finally leave an adventurous part of your chart on 8th August, with her return to your career sector creating the potential for August to be a good month across the job and career fronts. Mercury only wraps up his two month visit on 5th August, giving Venus plenty of potential to capitalise on.


Week beginning Monday 10th of August 2020

There has been more than just a changing of the guard on the professional front with the whole dynamics changing. Until Mercury left your career sector last Wednesday there had not only been professional pressure or work/life balance tension during his and before him the Sun's final weeks here but stagnation. Mercury is the fastest planet in the solar system and he operates best when he can get in and get out in 14 to 15 days, making things happen fast. However, having returned in May and having had to slow down for a retrograde turn, his departure not only saw pressure ease back but brought a sense of change. Venus' return over the weekend has brought in some new blood and a chance to capitalise on what has already been invested. Now Mercury is back doing what he loves and as the planet of communication in his first, last and only full week in your friendship sector, he is working to make it count.


Tuesday 11th of August 2020

Thanks to the Moon's departure from your relationship sector yesterday and the friendly aspect it made to the Sun and Mercury over recent days, their last full week in your friendship sector is able to be a lot more effective. This is the Sun's last and Mercury, the planet of communication's first, last and only full week in your friendship sector but what this tapped into on the communication and relationship fronts over recent days suggests that their legacy will live on. This is not just a good day for personal and professional networking, friendship and relationship building but a good week.
