August 2017 Horoscopes
There are two major astrological events in August. One is the ending of nine months with Jupiter square Pluto. The aspect is still strong early in the month and will probably give a last burst of influence before vanishing in the nightly sky. The other is the famous total solar eclipse (August 21) that will be visible across the United States and partially visible for us in Canada. This is rather rare and its influence combined with the last burst of Jupiter Square Pluto seems important, especially if we recall that, nine months ago, at the beginning of this aspect, the United States elected their new President. A total solar eclipse is a time where our consciousness is veiled, where the usually obvious and visible isn’t anymore. What has been shown to the public during these last nine months will become more hidden. New preoccupations will take place and the way our government and authorities lead our countries will again sink in the vast public forgetfulness.
One could ask: why is this happening if we are meant to forget about it? The key is to rejoice in today since it helps the cells of our body to store what we know as memory. Those cells keep the intelligence coming from this momentous awareness, guiding us throughout our lives by increasing our intuition’s sharpness in most needed times.
There are two more important aspects in August. One is a series of three connected squares: Pluto square Jupiter, square Venus, square Uranus. As the Jupiter square Pluto ends, its last burst will put a strong tension on Venus. Venus being in Cancer at this point, our usual pleasant and comfortable life will be shaken to allow us to gain a deeper understanding of the power of women.
The other is made of harmonious connections between Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. This tells us about the potential for intelligent collaboration that might deal with the new concerns arising around the eclipse (21 days before and after). Some kind of organization will do the work our known authorities won’t be able to carry on.
Since we all have a little bit of each sign within us, consider each of the following as addressing a specific part of yourself. Read it all for every aspect within yourself.
