This is another quite amazing month of change, Pisces. Over this strange year, you have been seeing further and truer renditions of your prospective plans come alive in your imagination and move toward greater concrete reality. This month continues the focus on your own self-identity, and adds to the mix that you are trying for a deeper understanding of yourself, top to bottom, as part of your studied approach to greater wholeness. The Leo Full Moon on the 3rd finds the Sun opposite an Aquarius Moon, corresponding to your sector of dream imagination and unconscious process, and supporting your drive for greater and more genuine self-expression. You are getting new ideas coming at you fast and furious during this entire final month of summer, and these contribute mightily to your intuitional understanding of your own inner depths. You evolving into your authentic self, and are making a renewed commitment to see this project through as though it were your assignment from the cosmos for this lifetime; as indeed it actually is.
The following was written by our resident monthly columnist Elodie St-Onge-Aubut of Ninth House Astrology
As August begins, you are feeling expressive in the aftermath of the Cancer New Moon that illuminated your fifth sector of creativity, romance and children. This New Moon also directly opposed Saturn, so that a partial slowdown, and a renewed sense of commitment, are also part of this mix of energies that extend into the current month. Your desire to create and procreate have been roused in the recent years. Whether we are talking about literal children or simply a creative project waiting to get birthed, you’ve spent a lot of time pondering your legacy. Romance, and potential partnerships has also been on your mind more recently. You may have spent the last several months redefining what kind of people you want in your life to feel nurtured and cared for. Home is where the heart is. However, deciphering your heart’s true desire is another story filled with twists and turns. Your friendships have offered solace and the support you need to untangle your desires. You are starting to have a much clearer idea of what you want to be associated with, and what should be left behind.
The Full Moon in Aquarius of August 3rd illuminates recent reflections that have helped you get to the bottom of certain behaviors. Things about yourself that had remained hidden until now may be becoming clarified. The Full Moon brings acknowledgement of what motivates you, and the more conscious integration of your desires. Uranus in Taurus is squared by this Full Moon, which could highlight some degree of restlessness in your thinking. New directions are possible, and greater intuition is available to look more closely into you inner workings. Talking ideas through with close friends could allow important solutions or breakthroughs.
Mars in Aries squares Jupiter in Capricorn on the 4th, which could put you in a gambling mood. It may be a good time to take some calculated risk, although this aspect could have you skipping over the details. Especially if a business transaction, this is an impulsive signature that must be handled strategically. You may also benefit by blowing off excess enthusiasm with physical exercise. Mercury enters Leo on the same day, and will travel in this sign until the 19th. Mercury in Leo is highlighting your routine, your health, and emphasizes your vitality.
Venus enters Cancer on August 7th, and travels there until September 6th. Venus in Cancer offers her pleasurable influence to romantic matters, creativity, and children. Venus in a fellow water sign lends support to your own. You may find that recent dilemmas in connection with children, or a potential romantic partner, become easier while Venus is in Cancer.
Mercury trines Chiron in Aries and squares Uranus in Taurus on the 9th, leading up to the Last Quarter Moon in Taurus on August 11th. You might find yourself having to deal with tedious logistical issues. Trying to fit all that you have to get done into your schedule could give you something of a headache. It also may not be possible to please everyone as the square between Mars and Pluto becomes exact mid-month. This square highlights tension and power dynamics, whenever they are at work. If you are part of an organization it may be hard to reach a consensus during this time.
Mercury and the Sun unite in Leo on August 17th while in a trine with Mars in Aries conjunct the new planet, Eris. This is definitely one of the energizing highlights this month. This aspect occurs in the part of your chart that deals with your health and your workplace, or day-to-day patterns, and offers a real boost. It’s a good time to charge your battery and to manage your energy level with exercise and rest.
The New Moon in Leo on the 18th offers a powerful incentive to set healthier habits and it's an excellent time to set intentions. Mars and Eris are in square with Saturn in this New Moon, perfecting on the 24th, and this makes things a little tough for the final two weeks of August, with perhaps having the effect of slowing you down in your workplace, or related to your finances. This is one of the most difficult aspects this month but it can be managed with patience and strategy. Whatever is blocking your progress can be worked through. Because Eris is involved, you are being called to your deepest values, discarding all the rest in formulating the decision of where to invest your energy, going forward.
Mercury enters Virgo on the 19th followed by the Sun on the 22nd, officiating the beginning of the Virgo season. The Sun transiting in Virgo will gradually emphasize your various partnerships in the thirty days ahead.
Socializing opportunities abound during the last weekend of August, and on another tack, you could be feeling more indulgent with yourself. The last weekend of August highlights your relationships. Venus in Cancer opposes Pluto on the 30th while Mercury in Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces. You could possibly be inclined towards compromising in order to make a situation work. It seems you are missing some pieces of a puzzle, which could turn out to create tension in your partnerships. Be mindful of obsessive thinking on your part, or showing up with a partner. It could be a time when it is best to step away from a scenario, until you get a better picture.
