The month begins with the Sun at 9 degrees 38’ of Leo and Mercury at 9 degrees 45’ of Leo which makes Mercury within 15’ of the Sun. This combination was known in traditional astrology as cazimi, “having the ear of the king”.
This conjunction is opposed by Saturn so what is false and not of the highest intention will be revealed. Watch to see what interesting information comes out at the beginning of the month. How you personally relay information matters now, as well as to whom.
Mercury moves into the sign of Virgo on 8/12, a sign it rules so pay attention to the details in everything you do. Venus and Mars are also currently in Virgo, though Venus enters her sign of Libra on 8/17 and Mars remains in Virgo all month.
Communication, habits, beauty and courage will be part of your mission this month. Look to the house Virgo rules in your own chart to see where your attention should be. Retrograde Jupiter is now back in Aquarius as of 7/29 through the end of the year and it goes direct on October 18. Correct your course if need be and stay optimistic about the outcome when you do.
Retrograde Saturn travels from 10 degrees Aquarius to 8 degrees Aquarius while Uranus goes retrograde at 14 degrees 47’ of Taurus on 8/19 and stays retrograde through the middle of January 2023. Watch over your assets, investments and control your spending during this time period as there could be sudden reversals.
Neptune in Pisces is retrograde from 22 degrees 51’ back to 22 degrees 10’. Water issues will continue to be in focus and expect some confusion or resistance to solutions through the beginning of December. I feel that Neptune is also involved with the covid virus so the fog around that will continue through that same period.
Pluto also continues its retrograde motion at 25 degrees Capricorn to 24 degrees 37’ of Capricorn where it began the year of 2021. Transformation and change are part of the plan right now, strive for the highest good for yourself and others.
Read your Sun sign and Rising sign for best information.
Aries — March 21-April 19: With Mars, your ruling planet, in Virgo all month there are health and work habits to improve upon. Pay attention to your daily routines as well as what supports you and what doesn’t. It’s time to really focus on improving your diet, exercise and daily stress triggers so you remain vital and really alive. This is where your true transformation begins. The 25th and 26th are your power days this month.
Taurus — April 20-May 20: With Venus moving into Libra on the 17th, you get a break from the focus on the mundane to more important matters of harmony, beauty, feminine power and the arts. You will feel inspired to create something that will be long lasting and special. Do pay attention to your health as you tend to be over indulgent and suffer the consequences of that particularly fun vice. Good days to start a new plan are the 1st, 27th, 28th and the AM hours of the 29th.
Gemini — May 21-June 21: With Mercury going into Virgo on the 12th you gain benefits from precise communication and also from staying connected to your family. Jupiter, now retrograde and in airy Aquarius, is still at the top of your chart so you have a connection to wisdom and the Guru, if you are paying attention. Pay attention. You are in need of some inspiration and right action so spend some time alone and in touch with your inner self’s needs. Great days to retreat and do this are the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 30th and 31st. Lucky you!
Cancer — June 22-July 23: This month has a money and finance signature with 5 planets transiting your 2nd and 8th houses. This is also a good time to do a review of your investments and long-term financial goals. While it is a very confronting and daunting task, it is essential to your future to know where you stand. Remember to stay in touch with siblings at this time, maybe even arranging a reunion of sorts. Life feels good for you on the 5th and 6th so do something fun!
Leo — July 24-August 23: Relationships and independence are on your mind this month as you look for ways to find a balance. Everyone in relationship has these struggles, but for your need for more attention underlines your conflict. Make a point of identifying and communicating your needs without anger or condescension to your partner. Good days to address this are the 7th, the new Moon of the 8th, and the AM hours of the 9th.
Virgo — August 24-September 22: Lots of attention for nitty gritty Virgo concerns this month with Mars in your sign as well as Venus until the 18th and Mercury after the 12th. I suspect you will be busy and mentally stimulated for the next two months with little time to spare for fun. Make sure you spend a bit of time alone to process the events of July which may have been a difficult period for you. Good days to do this are the PM hours of the 9th, the 10th and the 11th.
Libra — September 23-October 22: This is a wonderful month to spend some time alone for introspection and also with friends who “get” how you like to have fun. It sounds like a contradiction but that’s the dynamic of what your needs are this month. Just address it directly so you don’t confuse those who love you too much. Actually, everyone is wired this way but they don’t actually realize it or know how to express it. Venus enters your sign on the 18th so all will work out in your favor. The 12 and 13th are days to pamper yourself.
Scorpio — October 23-November 22: With Mars now in Virgo in your solar 11th house of friends, wishes, ambitions and how you want to use your power, you are pondering many changes. This is a good time to make some changes, particularly if you are ambitious and get a good offer! Make sure you ask questions and do your research on the direction a change will really take you as a physical move could be involved. The 14th and 15th are power days for you.
Sagittarius — November 23-December 20: With your ruling planet now retrograde and back in Aquarius you’re thinking about the ramifications of a possible move. Are you happy living where you do? This internal exploration may take you through the end of the year as many events are unfolding behind the scenes. Your siblings may need to weigh in on what’s going on and you may have some opposition to their input. There is a lot out of your control right now but you have to have faith in the future and trust the process. Best days for you are the 16th and 17th.
Capricorn — December 21-January 20: The month begins with your ruling planet, Saturn in retrograde motion opposing the Sun and Mercury in Leo. An opposition always means there are 2 ways to look at and move through something. This situation is no different. However, it is not as difficult as the recent events of 2020 for you. Handle the financial ramifications directly and do not procrastinate. There is a solution to every problem; more than one, actually. Use the positive vibes of the 18th and 19th to clarify your direction.
Aquarius — January 21-February 19: The month begins with partnership or business negotiations with Saturn retrograde in your first house opposing the Sun and Mercury in your 7th. Something powerful needs to be worked out regarding responsibilities and long-term obligations. All this can be to your benefit if you don’t get too rigid with your demands. Remember everything has to balance and feel fair to the others involved or it will ultimately fail. Good days to work through the details are the 20th, the 21st and the early AM hours of the 22nd as the full Moon will be close to Jupiter then and is very beneficial.
Pisces — February 20-March 20: With Venus and Mars transiting your solar 7th house, there are relationship issues coming to the surface to be worked out. However, some personal solitude may be required for you to feel reconnected to the other person. Yes, it seems contradictory in nature but that is usually how one connects with one’s inner needs. When your true needs are identified then they can be met by yourself or by your partner. Use the positive vibes of the PM hours of the 22nd after the full Moon, the 23rd and the 24th as grounding energy.
