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


The conjunction with Uranus in Aries (direct August 1-2, then retrograde for the rest of the month) helps you see what area of your life has begun to sag. It’s likely you’re overdue for a change-- if not for personal gain, than at least to combat boredom. Should you be resistant to this transit, the shake-up to your routine might be uncomfortable. Fortunately, you have the tools to take it in stride; the Leo Sun trines with Aries (August 1-22), dissolving obstacles and making you think things will run smoothly forever. They can’t, and won’t, but take advantage of the good fortune to stock your reserves. Also coming to your aid is a trine with Leo Mars (all month), which will increase your independence and energy. Do not neglect others, but take more care of yourself than you have been. The trine with retro Saturn in Sagittarius (August 1-24) is another reminder to spend time with yourself and understand your agency in the world. At this time, you are very disciplined and have clear ideas of what needs to be done, especially in the realm of self-improvement or horizon expansion. It would be a wonderful time to take a long-distance trip by yourself. The square with Venus in Cancer (August 1-26) shows you workable tensions in your relationships, and warns you of excess and melodrama. Handled properly, this transit can be very beneficial to expanding your romantic or creative vocabulary, especially if you trade traditional Aries impetuousness  for some temporary Cancerian receptivity. Once Venus enters Leo on August 27th, you can use all you’ve learned to be much more charming than you’ve been previously. The waning gibbous Moon in Aries (August 12-13) can make you a little bratty, so be careful. The opposition with Libra Jupiter--strongest for mid-April Aries-- may humble you if you succumb to its bombast. While remembering not to overstep your bounds, try to assess your limits and don’t make any promises you can’t keep.
