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 Libra, this month’s focus will be on your friendships, group associations, and personal ambitions.
Mars is still in your house of career and ambition leading you into this month with some leftover drive in that area of your life. There were many things that you had to take care of while Mars was journeying there. You may have noticed that your career was on the upswing, with many deals, projects and working together with authority or your higher-ups. You’ll be able to continue and finish those projects that were started last month when you had the entire slew of planets in this area of your chart. Mars will then move into your house of dreams, friendships, causes, personal objectives and ideals. You will find that you have enough energy again to focus on your relationships, those you have with your friends or groups.
Venus is journeying through this house for the entire month so you will find that your associations are friendly, diplomatic, and there will be a feeling of togetherness with your friends and associates. This will affect you directly and in connection to your commitments and intimate relationships because Venus rules Libra and Taurus.
Mercury begins in your 11th house and is there during the first week of August bringing ideas, thoughts, and plans with friends. It will be a sociable time where you reconnect, discuss and communicate with your friends. Libra is a sociable sign and loves to share ideas and thoughts with others. You’ll find yourself getting together with groups or organizations connected to humanitarian causes and driving those causes or charities forward. Mercury will then move into Virgo at the end of the first week, and there you will find that your ideas or ideals will work with you toward helping others. Mercury in Virgo will give you the ability to work with the details. You’ll have Mercury in this area until the end of the month taking care of the ‘finishing’ details of any cause you are involved with. It will also give you the time to go over matters that are personal and hidden connected to your intuition. You’ll notice that you are in tuned to your thoughts and your inner voice. Those answers you are or were seeking will come to the surface this month and you’ll be able to analyze them in-depth and the results will be quite significant.
The good news this month is that Jupiter transitions from Leo to Virgo and enters your 12th house on the 11th. Jupiter in this area of your chart is like having a guardian angel at your side. Jupiter in this sector also connects you on a whole new level to your spiritual nature. The nature of your relationships with your relatives or siblings is due to get a boost and you’ll find yourself communicating much more with them over the course of this year. You will also uncover information while delving into your past that will bring some repressed memories or dreams to the surface.
Saturn went retrograde into Scorpio and your 2nd house of material security, income, self-worth, and your attitude toward partners or close relations. If you remember back to the last 2-3 years before Saturn changed signs (to Sagittarius) in December 2014, the lessons that you learned during that time will come up again for review. Are you being true to the values that you hold close to your heart? Are you working toward the material security you wish to have or are you just keeping up? Are your priorities in place or are you putting others first still? It’s not about selfishness, but rather about making sure that you are taking care of yourself and not depending on someone else. Saturn will turn direct on August 2, but will stay in this house until September to review and to help you re-organize your priorities before reaching its original position in Sagittarius before retrograding. If you happened to forget about your priorities, this transit will remind you of them.
On July 31, there was a full moon in Aquarius in your 5th house of your inner child, creative pursuits, children, and the things that bring you pleasure. Full moons bring culmination to projects or cycles. Projects on which you were working on your own will end and you’ll be putting the finishing touches on them as the moon travels across most of the top part of your chart to the new moon on August 14 when a new cycle of activity will begin.
You will host the New Moon this month in your 11th house of making contacts and reaching out to others socially and professionally. You may be feeling restless and contacting others will help you to subdue those feelings. You’ll realize where you stand when it comes to your place within the context of the ‘group.’ You will find your niche and security within a group, and your goals may include networking, connecting with others, and joining with them while strengthening your ties in connection to a particular project.
For Libra, August is about the security found through your friendships, associations and through collaboration with others. You will receive support from your friends and groups, such as support groups, or through business. Your contribution or service this month will be to your friends, support groups, to that group that you consider as a brotherhood or sisterhood. If you’re in school, it could be your fraternity, or a club you belong to, or a humanitarian group you volunteer with.
