From the Desk of Leslie Marlar, August ’19
For those of you who are local, S.T.A.R. Guild astrology study group meets on August 27th at 6 pm at the library in Cocoa, 308 Forrest Ave., rm # 3. We will look at topical charts of interest. In July we looked at some candidates and other charts. See my S.T.A.R. Guild report for the July ’19 meeting on my site for details under star guild reports.
This past month the undefeated U.S. Women’s soccer team won the 2 final games close to the July 2nd Solar Eclipse in Cancer. The sign Cancer is important in the U.S, chart with 4 planets in that sign including the Sun, which is close to the brightest star in the sky, Sirius.
Early in the month Mars was square Uranus, suggesting unexpected trouble. There were two earthquakes in Ridgecrest, Ca.
Ross Perot died on July 9. He has Jupiter, the Sun, the Ascendant, the Moon and the Sun in Cancer where we had the eclipse on the 2nd.
With the Moon in Sagittarius, the foot in mouth sign, Trump made his “go back to where you come from” statement and there has been tumult ever since. He has the Moon in Sagittarius.
With the Moon in Aquarius on July 17th, the country’s Moon sign, there was a vote for impeachment that failed.
On July 19th , 3 days after a Lunar Eclipse, Iran seized a U.K. ship in the straights of Hormuz.
Under a last quarter Moon in Taurus on the 24th, the Governor of Puerto Rico resigned after a week of protest. Also on this day, Mueller testified. He looked old, frail, and less than familiar with the Mueller Report. Also Boris Johnson took over as PM in the UK. For these events in this time frame, we see Uranus with the Moon and squaring the Sun. Uranus is fateful and unpredictable. A planned Spacex launch did not go. The next day with the Moon still in Taurus, extreme heat happened in Europe. This time spacex went. The square of the Moon was weaker and the Ascendant of the launch chart was in travel sign Sagittarius, not earthy Capricorn.
On the 27th, 3 quakes happened in the Luzon Straights near the Phillipines. The Sun was squaring unpredictable & revolutionary Uranus. And there were protests in Moscow and more in Hong Kong.
On the 28th the Gilroy garlic festival shooting happened. Shooting sign, Sagittarius was rising with Jupiter. The Moon was opposing in Gemini from the 7th. The Sun was in the same sign as Mars and square Uranus.
On the 29th, Capital One announced a security breach involving 100 million members, Sun square Uranus.
Next month, at early and mid-month the Sun and Venus and later Mercury square Uranus and bring unexpected events. The same planets trining Jupiter bring help. My brother just reminded me of the Hong Kong protests. They have been going on since late March. Revolutionary Uranus went into Taurus in March and stays there for 7 years. Slow moving planets changing sign bring changes and events. So, Uranus is suspect and would be one factor in the Hong Kong protests. Also Mars has been very active in recent months. As noted above, we do see stimulation of Uranus in August.
A New Moon on July 1st and early 2nd in Leo brings a new start in creativity. A New Moon in Virgo later on the 29th, the 30, and much of the 31st brings a new start in work. A Full Moon in Aquaraius on the afternoon of the 13th, the 14th, and the 15th contrasts group versus personal power.
Fairly good days this month are: 8, 9, 10, 17, 20, 21, 22, 25, & 28.
I’ll be at Aquarian Dreams on Aug, 24th doing Astrology Readings from 10:30 to 4pm. Call if you need me.
