August 2019

There is just one word to describe moving out of July and into August and that word is 'phew'. With the toughest months of 2019 and the log jam that was June and July over, things are set to flow more smoothly and life will become a lot more free flowing, easy and exciting. There is very little angst between the stars this month and instead, the same planets that were creating a problem for the outer planets are this month forming harmonious aspects and this will have a positive impact in two different camps. I use the word 'camp' because while the faster moving planets will mainly focus on two areas of your chart this month, each will have threefold implications. What do I mean by that? For the first time since October 2017 the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars will all come together in the same area of your chart at the same time, not once but twice and this will have a ripple effect. Where they first come together is in your career sector, with the Sun, Mars and Venus starting the month here and Mercury joining them on 12th August. What I mean by 'threefold implications', is that this will put the planets at a friendly aspect to Eris and Chiron, in their first full month in retrograde motion in your work sector and to Jupiter, as the planet of luck turns direct in your income sector on 12th August. This will have a positive impact across the income, work and career fronts. The same thing will happen as the same planets one by one leave your career sector and return to your friendship sector, starting with Mars' on 18th August and finishing with Mercury on 29th August. This time, as each planet returns to your friendship sector they will first move into a positive aspect to Uranus, who turns retrograde in your relationship sector on 12th August and then to Saturn and Pluto, in retrograde motion in your communication sector. These are the same planets, making the same friendly aspects but this time to different planets but still with a threefold impact, this time across the communication, friendship and relationship building fronts.


Week beginning Monday 19th of August 2019

There are a lot of exciting developments across the income, work and career fronts this week, which the Moon's return to your work sector on Monday can help you capitalise on. It all comes down to timing. A week after turning direct in your income sector, Jupiter is ready to start moving things forward, with the Moon intuitive edge and friendly alignment coming at the right time. This also puts the Moon here during Venus' final days in your career sector and as they both leave on Wednesday, this will pack a lot into the early days of the week. Yet even after the Moon and Venus move on, forces across the income, work and career fronts will continue to work together. However, just as auspicious is where things move onto, with the Moon returning to your relationship sector just hours before Venus returns to your friendship sector. The adds to the already developing support across the communication, friendship and relationship building fronts.


Friday 23rd of August 2019

For the third time in just five days there is a planet leaving your career sector and returning to a more social and serendipitous part of your chart. This time it is the Sun and like Mars and Venus before him, there is a pleasant surprise when the solar spotlight shifts onto your friendships, social life and onto personal and professional networking in general. With the Moon in your relationship sector and at a friendly aspect to both planets in your communication sector, this highlights the built in support across the communication, friendship and relationship building fronts from the get go.
