AUGUST FORECAST 2021
The first week of this month has the Sun and Mercury in the adolescent energy of Leo. It is being opposed by the strict parent planet Saturn, which will be a challenge of wills. The rebellious planet Aquarius also gets involved. Leo can be very dramatic, so expect rules will be broken and tantrums will occur.
In the second week, the focus will be on an opposition between Venus in Virgo and Neptune in Pisces. The positive side of this can create a beautiful romantic encounter. Take a loved one on a romantic outing. The negative side of this can create illusive behavior in relationships, full of deception and lies. You may be drawn to someone who wants you to be their savior, as you sacrifice everything for them and then they dump you.
The third week will be emphasized by a conjunction between Mercury and Mars both in Virgo. Since Virgo is the sign of fixing things, take advantage of what might be broken in your life, whether it’s a relationship with someone or physically anything that needs fixing. It can also produce people becoming very judgemental towards you. If you are sensitive to criticism, stay away from those who are already that way.
The 22nd gives us a Full Moon in Leo/Aquarius. This opposition is a challenge between and our individual will and our humanity. Is our behavior completely selfish or are we more concerned about how we affect others? This will be highlighted. It might be hard to know since Mercury will be opposing Neptune during this final week. Neptune’s confusion could be fogged by letting others decide for you. Or you could get clear by understanding we are all in this together.
