Share with your friends...

Total. Solar. Eclipse! Everyone’s talking about this spectacular happening in August. For the first time since 1918, a sensational Total Solar Eclipse – when the moon passes over the Sun – will track across America on 21 August. This will bring total darkness – lasting almost three minutes, in the middle of the day – to states from Oregon to South Carolina!

August 2017 AstroMotivation Forecast

Theme: The Big Event!!

“Every moment and every event of every person’s life on this earth plants something in his soul!“

– Thomas Merton

Although eclipses (usually partial) occur in different parts of the world every year, it’s the first time in almost a 100 years that a powerful Total Solar Eclipse will be seen in the United States. What does this mean? What can we expect? How will this affect You?

Since time began, civilizations have sought to understand the significance of the Sun momentarily disappearing from the heavens (an omen or portent?). The word “Eclipse” actually comes from the Greek word for ‘darken’, and historically, many major events have been attributed to this celestial happening – some ominous and some auspicious.

Many believe it coincides with major life, weather and earth events – serving to shake up complacency and bring about change. Since the Sun is being obscured by the Moon, it’s often attributed to hidden things, cover-ups or concealed matters finally coming to light.

Basically, that which has been undisclosed will now be revealed. But this can also be a time when YOU personally uncover new meaning and discoveries in your own life – letting YOU shine through any shadows that may have been obscuring your true light!

The events associated with Eclipses often play out over a period of time, beginning some months before the actual Eclipse and taking more months after to come to completion. Has there been a sudden change in your life in the last several months? It may be tied to the Eclipse, especially if it has anything to do with the Leo-Aquarius energy in your chart. Let me know if you would like to find out more about YOUR specific chart for this eventful time and beyond!

With emphasised Leo energy occurring in August, expect a full-on time of heightened emotions, ego-driven expression, and a strong need for attention. Those in positions of power (ruled by Leo) will no doubt be even more in the spotlight. Keep an eye to the headlines, earth events as well as your own life direction now.

Where are you being urged into action? This is a great occasion to ask yourself if you fully embrace your personal power, while considering ways to cultivate the amazing Soul Strength that You possess! Reclaim, Recharge and Regenerate! This is your time to power up!

Although this Solar happening in itself is an astronomical big event, there are also other celestial points of interest occurring in August, making this certainly a noteworthy month! We also get to experience a Partial Lunar Eclipse, Mercury going Retrograde and a Leo-Aquarius push-pull dynamic emerging – which can highlight the needs of individuals vs the needs of those in positions of power.

What are the key dates this month and what can YOU expect? Here’s my #AstroMotivation Forecast for August 2017:

1 August: Venus goes into Cancer – Sooth Your Spirit! The ability to acknowledge and appreciate our sensitivity, feelings and intuition helps us to connect with a more self-nurturing part of ourselves.

For the next 3 weeks, make a special effort to honour your majestic spirit by taking extra care of your mind, body and soul. This assists in helping to strengthen the positive, beautiful and magical heart-light within You!

Protect and comfort your inner child, being supportive of the unique spirit that you are! Be aware of what and who makes you feel loved and appreciated, and which do not. Find a better balance between doing for others and giving to yourself.

For the weeks ahead establish new ways of self-kindness, allowing your personal beauty and abilities to blossom!

8 August: Full Moon in Aquarius / Partial Lunar Eclipse – Liberate your Inner Warrior! This Lunar energy brings to light original and unusual ways of expression and thinking, helping us to take a stand – to speak up and stick up for ourselves and for those needing a voice!

Share your vision now for the “greater good”, helping to bring about change and make a difference in the world! Liberate your unique and quirky spirit and embrace your authentic self, tapping into a more Utopian vibe! Not being satisfied with the status quo or the usual responses, we can now find our answers outside the box.

As this Full Moon/Partial Lunar Eclipse occurs in the sign representing progressive thinking, revolutionary expression and greater independence, this can be a time of shaking up complacency and jolting others into greater awareness. What issues of your life need emotional liberation?

13 August: Mercury in Virgo goes Retrograde – Check the Fine Print! With Mercury, the Planet ruling our intellect, communication, transportation and interactions starting its reversing motion in Virgo, we too may find things stalled, delayed or going backwards in our dealings.

This is a time to be very mindful of information and details given to us – double checking data and reviewing facts is key. As with all Mercury Retrograde cycles (this one lasts until 5 September), having an analytical mindset now helps prevent misinformation, delays or disconnections.

In general, avoid major agreements, starting new projects or making major purchases during a Mercury Retrograde period. On the upside, it’s a great time to review, investigate, research, de-clutter, organise and prepare to implement your plans when Mercury goes Direct!

22 August: Total Solar Eclipse / New Moon in Leo – The Big Event! The major highlight of August is of course the Total Solar Eclipse and New Moon – both occurring in Leo – at 28 degrees. Where this occurs in your chart will give you insight into the specific areas of your life that will be effected (ask me for details!).

Generally, this is a dramatic time – when energies and emotions can be turbo-charged – not only with world events but within your life as well. This can be a powerful period to consider the changes you want to make and what you’d like to manifest for yourself going forward!

It often brings news of big life events, creating new opportunities which assist you in moving ahead! Use this unique occasion to honour your inner light, bringing forth your true gifts to shine brightly into the future!

23 August: Sun goes into Virgo – Mind, Body, Spirit Focus! As the Sun shifts from Leo into the Earthy sign of Virgo, we’re encouraged to focus on health, well-being and self-care.

This is an advantageous time for establishing better routines for building more strength and holistic balance in the mental, physical and intuitive sides of life. Allow this new month-long cycle to assist you in being mindful of how you treat yourself.

Be conscious of releasing any negative chatter, self-disapproval or pessimistic thoughts at this time. Establish an organized schedule to suit your needs – allowing for daily exercise, meditation and reflection.

Keep an eye to a healthful diet and make sure you get adequate rest. Also important – connect with like-minded others who are positive and supportive – helping to remind you how special YOU truly ARE!

26 August: Venus goes into Leo – Gratitude for YOU! Acknowledging your attributes and talents is just showing gratitude for what you’ve been given. Everyone is blessed with something, each one of us has a unique quality, talent or gift, so use this time to play up those parts of yourself that you love the most!

It’s not just physical – it’s your sense of humour, communication ability, positive energy or expressive style. Remember that in the end YOU define who you are and YOU decide what you want to be!

With Venus, the Goddess of Love planet, shining brightly in the effervescent sign of Leo, we can all better recognise and appreciate our divine beings! For the weeks ahead: treat yourself, applaud yourself and admire who you are!

The Outer Planets stay in a sign for a longer period of time, so their effect on us is more gradual, but significant none the less. Here they are in their current positions:

Jupiter in Libra: As the planet representing expansion and opportunity moves through this Venus-ruled sign, relationships, attraction and abundance are all highlighted! Jupiter going Direct in Libra is a happy time – a period of new appreciation, partnerships, creative thought, broadening horizons and cultivating bounty and beauty!

Just keep moderation in mind as our feelings of inspiration, enjoyment and togetherness can get carried away! Use this marvelous cycle to excel in your personal creativity, find the love of your life or begin new studies and travels to broaden your view of the world! Jupiter will be in Libra until October 10 2017!

Saturn in Sagittarius Retrograde: As the planet representing Responsibility and Structure is Retrograde (until 23 August!), we’re encouraged to reflect upon our fears, doubts and insecurities – exposing cracks in the foundation of our lives and finding the root element of what may be holding us back.

As we emotionally and mentally investigate our inward issues we can uncover much about what undermines our progress. By getting to the heart of the matter we can focus more on solutions, gaining strength to surmount any challenge!

This is an ideal cycle for realigning, reviewing and reconnecting with our true purpose, readdressing the steps that need to be put into place to achieve our goals. Saturn will be in Sagittarius until December 2017.

Uranus in Aries (Goes Retrograde on 2 August until 2 January 2018): As the planet of Innovation now starts it’s Retrograde cycle in this independent sign, we are encouraged to reflect on what we need for greater freedom in our lives. By embracing unique forms of self-expression, liberation from oppression, new technology and inventive pioneering action we find new insights and advancement in our lives and world!

Strength, assertive action, inspirational vision, intuitive understanding, advanced technology and new innovation is forthcoming, helping us to open up to new dimensions. Uranus will be in Aries until 7 March 2019.

Neptune in Pisces Retrograde (until 22 November 2017): As the planet ruling dreams and creativity continues its Retrograde motion in its ruling sign of Pisces, we are encouraged to honor more of our spiritual awareness, artistic inspiration and intuitive insight!

Greater appreciation for the beautify around us as well as within us is highlighted. We-are-all-one compassion is emphasised along with further need for humanitarian expression. Readdressing ways to embrace greater sympathy and empathy along with universal understanding is highlighted. Neptune will be in Pisces until 31 March 2025.

Pluto in Capricorn Retrograde (until 29 September 2017): As the planet of Transformation continues its long journey through this sober sign in Retrograde motion, we get serious about making positive changes to ourselves and our world.

The overall theme of this cycle is uncovering the misuse of power and authority to enable change for the better. It represents a major time of rediscovery, review and reconsideration that brings transformation to our society, government, world order and Mother Earth.

It also pushes to think about the changes we want to make to our belief structures and our power as individuals and as a whole. This pairing will continue until 24 March 2023.

Chiron in Pisces: As the “wounded healer” moves through the sign of sensitivity, compassion and understanding, we have the ability to open our hearts to others while working to heal ourselves.

Greater spiritual awareness, empathy and intuition can be gained during this time but it’s important not to lose ourselves in the effort to assist others. Keeping personal boundaries in place is key for self-care too. Chiron will be in Pisces until April 2018.

Warmth, Heart and StarLight to all Sweet Star Seekers for an Awesome August! Bright Blessings and Best Wishes surround you and yours for a bountiful and beautiful time ahead!
