A U G U S T - Sun in Leo/Sun in Virgo


If you’re an Aquarius-Pisces cusp, life will be a little bit more interesting this month due to the strong sextile with Uranus in Aries. It should be plenty interesting for other Aquarians too; Leo Sun opposes yours, and the oppositions from both Leo Mars (all month) and Leo Venus (starting August 27) will make you feel like you’re doing everything wrong. In all likelihood, you’re on the precipice of finishing or achieving something-- so close but only slightly out of your grasp. It feels like you’re going to be assured some kind of victory, but be careful-- now is exactly the moment where everything could come undone. The trine with Libra Jupiter--lasting all month long, and strongest for earlier February Aquarians-- gives a tendency towards taking things for granted. In particular, resist bristling under your superiors and fight the urge to cut corners, as both will be especially tempting. Check your ego, cool your aggression,  and don’t be such an iconoclast---sometimes it clashes with people’s feelings.  If you do, in fact, fail, the sextile with retro Saturn in Sagittarius grants you the discipline to plan your way back, but it would be best to take a long break. Because of the Uranian influence, you may very well have something drop in your lap unplanned, and if so, seize the opportunity. But before beginning anything big again, perhaps wait until December, when Saturn moves into Capricorn and is not aspecting your Sun in any significant way. Although the Moon usually reflects one’s emotional and reactive state, the Full Moon eclipse in Aquarius (August 7th and 8th) will entrench you in high idealism more than heartsong. This is a time for experimenting and exercising personal freedom.
