This month, I’ll only be featuring the monthly synopsis instead of the usual monthly, weekly and daily synopses because I am working on my website where these components will be available. Thank you for your patience.
For Leo, August is focused on the first house of self, image, and personality. You will be shining this month and everyone will want to be you. You will not be able to do any wrong in the eyes of those around you.
With Venus close by, you’ll be even more attractive, however because she is in retrograde, it would not be a time to make any drastic changes to your image during this time. You may regret or have to make some alterations. Venus brings harmony, love, and togetherness to your life.
Mars is still in your 12th house of sacrifice, helping others. You may have spent last month concentrating on helping others move forward rather than focusing on yourself. You’ll spend the first week of August continuing in this mode but after the first week, you’ll be able to focus on your own needs.
Mercury begins in the 12th house as well and you’ll be filled with ideas and plans that work to help others. You may also have dreams that surface regarding matters that you may have repressed in your past. These will help you to be of service to others. When Mercury journeys to your first house on the 7th, you will get some great ideas and plans connected to your own wants and needs. This will lead into your 2nd house of material success and self worth at the end of the month. Ideas on how to make money and increase your income.
Jupiter is still in your first house at the beginning of the month and this will bring your year of having luck and abundance to culmination. But, not so fast, Jupiter makes its major shift into Virgo this month in your 2nd house of material success, so after bringing a brand new world to you, it will then focus on bursting open your material world and bring your success to new heights. You will have to watch your spending, but all in all, you will be able to find ways to bring in more income and thus will balance these matters. Jupiter in your 2nd house may bring financial deals that are at a distance or with foreign countries and this will be favourable for those who are in the import and export business, or deal with foreign business.
Saturn has been retrograde in your 4th house of home, foundation, and parents. You may have noticed that your parents have needed your attention, or you may have had to deal with changes in your home. Saturn’s retrograde allowed a time to review this influence where lessons regarding discipline, order, organization, or restrictions that may have been connected to your home or your family. Saturn is back to direct motion on the 2nd and you’ll notice that some of those limitations have lifted, even if just slightly. Saturn will remain in your 4th house until September where it will enter your 5th house of creative pursuits and children.
The full moon in Aquarius at the end of last month will influence the first two weeks of August in the opposite house of relationships and partnerships. There may be a change in the cycle of your relationships, and a time to reconnect to those you partner with, whether business or personal. It will be the moment to create a balance in your life especially with your relationships.
August is about the action that you take toward what you do for yourself, how you package yourself, how you assert yourself and how others see you as a result. It is about giving to yourself and to others through your self-expression. Your contribution will be toward what you have to show to the world.
