While conditions ease for everyone this month and August is as different to the last two months as it is possible to get, there is another factor that makes this month especially important for you. This is Jupiter's direct turn in Sagittarius on 12th August, something that signals the beginning of the end, but in an exciting way. Jupiter returned to Sagittarius last November, with your ruling planet not only returning to create an expansive year, but to spend 13 months laying down the foundations to a new 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion. In retrograde motion since April, this has been put on hold, giving you a chance to spend time back at the drawing board. This also allowed Jupiter to hide away during the most challenging months of 2019. Jupiter's direct turn puts the planet of luck and expansion back into play and between now and leaving in early December, will pack as much as he can into building for the future and into opening major new doors. This makes this a major turning point in the year for you, the point where you can stop looking back and start looking forward and the timing couldn't be any better. For it is on the same day that Jupiter turns direct that Mercury not only returns to an adventurous part of your chart but to create something special. Mercury's return to your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery on 12th August puts the Sun, Mercury, Mars and Venus in the same area of your chart at the same time since October 2017. These are the faster planets and every planet that will visit this adventurous part of your chart this year will not only all be here at the same time, but will all at some point move into a friendly aspect to Jupiter, just as he is turning direct. However, these planets aren't done yet and are ready to spread the love as they one by one move on, starting with Mars on 18th August and ending with Mercury on 29th August, ending the month together in your career sector. This will have exciting implications across the income, work and career fronts.
Week beginning Monday 19th of August 2019
A week on from his direct turn in Sagittarius, Jupiter is looking to the future with confidence and there should be a real sense of excitement when it comes to the journey ahead. This is partly because Jupiter is looking out at a clear road between now and his departure in December, with no obstacles and partly because of the support from a parade of planets in an adventurous part of your chart. Playful lunar vibes will make Venus' final days in an adventurous part of your chart count before they both leave on Wednesday to join a growing professional groundswell. Within the space of just a few hours, first the Moon will return to your work sector, for the first time since Uranus' retrograde turn here last week and Venus will join Mars in your career sector. There are two distinct camps forming, one around the personal, playful and adventurous fronts and the other around the income, work and career fronts.
Friday 23rd of August 2019
Just two days ago playful lunar vibes were at a friendly aspect to the Sun and Venus, helping to make their final days in an adventurous part of your chart as colourful as possible. Now, just days later the Moon is your work sector, supporting Venus in her early days in your career sector and here to welcome the Sun when he returns today. However, the Sun will still be working to make his final hours in an adventurous part of your chart count, knowing that by this time next week there will be no more planetary activity here.
