August Monthly Horoscope August 2018 ~ Deep Contemplation

Deep Contemplation
August 01 2018

We are fully immersed in eclipse season as August dawns: Two July eclipses are in the rearview mirror, and a rare third eclipse lies directly ahead. With the atmosphere already highly electrified by the provocative July 27 total lunar eclipse in Aquarius. On August 2nd Mars squares Uranus. This August square may be the most powerful of the three that will occur not only is retrograde Mars in progressive Aquarius, but it is also the closest it has been to the Earth since 2003, increasing its influence on our lives. Some may feel at boiling point, the current Jupiter Trine to Neptune can help you let go of anger and resentment.

With Mercury retrograde in Leo, all we can think of is how to express ourselves effectively, so we get the right kind of attention. Maybe we’re worrying about the kids, thinking about the future generation, sorely lacking in fun. With retrograde Mars square Uranus acting impulsively is not recommended. Saturn trine Uranus creates the ideal time to make positive changes. Proceed slowly and plan your longer term goals. It will help you stay calm and patient so you can plan every step methodically.

 Half of the ten primary planets are moving backward at the beginning of August (Mercury, Mars, Saturn, Neptune, and Pluto), with Chiron also moving backward and Uranus stationing retrograde on August 7. This overwhelming emphasis on retrograde planets means that we are in a very subjective phase of our development, in spite of the Leo Sun’s penchant for overt demonstration.

The partial solar eclipse on August 11 is visible in northern Europe and northeastern Asia. This is the third and final eclipse this season. The solar eclipse August 2018 astrology is mainly influenced by a conjunction to Mercury retrograde. The major themes of this eclipse will be thinking, contemplation, deliberation, discussion and debate.

Mercury, having gone retrograde on July 25, stations direct on August 18, liberating those who have been cautiously avoiding signing contracts or starting new enterprises for the previous 24 days.

The creative Jupiter–Neptune water trine perfects for the third and final time on August 19. This aspect helps us to find a positive perspective in difficult times, advances spiritual growth, and allows us to release the past.

On Sunday, August 26, the full moon falls at 3º Pisces decan 1. Fantasy and reality, the spiritual and the material… they may seem like polar opposites, but the lines separating one from the other are often more blurred than we think.This Full Moon provides an opportunity to change negative patterns and achieve (or rediscover) equilibrium. The Pisces focus also presses on the need to ensure that time is made available for purposeful contemplation or relaxing meditation, to help rebalance mind and body together, after which plans can flow more easily.
