Sun Signs for August ’21
(To see your Sun sign right away, scroll down.)
The information in this column is limited. It does not replace your seeing your astrologer. If you know the sign of your Moon and your Ascending sign, read those sections also. This information is helpful because it mentions planets passing through your sign. These do bring opportunities.
Special note: Here’s wishing all of you the best in August. The emphasis this month is on the signs Leo, Virgo, and Libra. Whatever we have in our own charts, we also become these qualities temporarily. Leo rules, Virgo works, and Libra relates. The Sun in weeks 1, 2, and 3, and Mercury in weeks 1 and 2 are in Leo. This turns our attention to play, creativity, and power. Early in the month, the Sun and Mercury connect with the difficult Uranus/Saturn square. We can prepare for this by being very positive. The Sun in week 4, Mercury in weeks 3 and 4, Venus in weeks 1 and 2, and Mars all month are in Virgo; this shows a focus on work and producing. With Mars here we need to keep the peace at work. Venus in weeks 3 and 4 and Mercury from the 30th are in fairness loving Libra. This is good for areas of justice and beauty. Saturn and Jupiter are in the sign, Aquarius and will be there for 1 year and 2 years respectively. This enhances emphasis on people, ideas, the future and global issues. Social and intellectual events increase. Jupiter in Aquarius lasts until ’22 with the exception of May, June, and July, when it is in Pisces. Saturn will be in Aquarius until Spring ’23. Jupiter can bring good things to humanity, for example, the vaccine. Saturn brings difficulties but also new goals. The more positive we are, the better it will go. Uranus in Taurus until 2026 brings the unexpected in finances, and the original in art. For Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius dealing with the unexpected or disruptive is on tap. This will take good managerial skills and the ability to know what we can manage, and what we can’t. When Jupiter and Saturn are in Aquarius, they connect with Uranus, tripling the effect on these fixed signs. Jupiter will do this for a couple of months early in 2021, Saturn for 2021 and also later ’22. So, resting, being one of the good guys, and not living on the edge are important. Most importantly, Saturn is squaring Uranus for this year; this can bring unexpected trouble, and trouble with technical things. So we need to stay on top of things. Neptune is still in its long term stay in its own sign of altered states, Pisces. Meditation can help us do this in legal and safe ways. Pluto is still in Capricorn and brings transformation to government and business.
New Moon in Leo on the 7th ,8th ,and morning of the 9th brings a new start with kids and play. A Full Moon in Aquarius on the 20th, the 21st, and early morning of the 22nd contrasts personal power and group power.
Remember that new, full, and quarter moons are powerful times during the month. Actions taken at these times should be positive and well thought out. The quarter moons are in Taurus on the 1st , and in Scorpio on the 14th and 15th, and in Gemini 30th and 31st.
Days that look fairly harmonious this month are: 4, 11, 12, 13, 17, 18, 19, 27, & 28. For really important events, it requires a deeper look. Part of the magic of Astrology is how much better things go when we start things on good days.
Extra special note: I’m recommending that people read Covey, Dyer, and Chopra during their birth month. They write about achieving success and happiness and this is what the Sun is about in our charts. During the birth month we have the opportunity to start a new cycle of success and these authors have great ideas on how to do it. For those who want to get in on the ground floor of understanding existence and self-improvement, C.C. Zain’s Church of Light books will make you an astrologer and a metaphysician. These books teach us that there is a supernatural dimension in and around us that makes life subtle and interesting. And that Astrology gives us helpful information in innumerable situations. And finally, that we have the power to change our lives through Astrology and by harmonizing our feelings and our thinking.
