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 Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, and Libra. Whatever we have in our own charts, we also become these qualities temporarily. Aries takes action, Taurus calms, Gemini notices, Cancer cares, Leo performs, Virgo serves, and Libra relates. Jupiter continues in Aries and and promotes action and enthusiasm. Mars until week 4 is in Taurus. We may feel driven to make money and deal with the natural world. While in Taurus, Mars squares Saturn; let’s be very positive to counter the natural difficult effects of this. Mars moves into Gemini in week 4 and stays there until the 4th week of March. This is huge and affects anyone with something important in Gemini. We all should harmonize our thoughts and speech to counter the tendency for these areas to be tense. Venus is in Cancer in weeks 1 and 2 and promotes happiness in the home. The Sun in weeks 1, 2, and 3, Mercury until the 4th, and Venus in weeks 3 and 4 are in Leo and increase our power, and our desire to be creative and have fun. Venus trines Jupiter at mid-month and promotes the fire signs. The Sun in week 4 and Mercury from the 4th to the 25th are in Virgo and turn our attention to projects. Mercury enters Libra on the 25th and turns our atterntion to others. Saturn, is still in Aquarius until March of ’23. It can bring difficulty to Aquarian things like: humanity, knowledge, friends, hope, and the future. It is important that we think, act, and behave in positive ways to counter this. This affects the world and us personally. Saturn can also promote drive and get us where we want to 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. Resting, being one of the good guys, and not living on the edge are important. Saturn is squaring Uranus this year; this can bring unexpected trouble, and trouble with technical things. So we need to stay on top of things. Mars is stimulating this in a tense way early in the month. 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.

A Full Moon in Aquarius later on the 10th, the 11th, and much of the 12 contrasts personal power and group power.

A New Moon in Virgo later on the 26th, the 27th, and 28th brings a new start in work life.

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 Scorpio on the 4th , the 5th, and morning of the 6th and in Taurus on the 17th, 18th, and early morning of the 19th.

Days that look fairly harmonious this month are: 1, am 2, 6, 7, 9, am 10, 14, 15, 16, 21, 23, 28, & 30. 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.
