Astro Overview for August

The last month of summer is, without a doubt, the most intense of this season. In addition to the three planetary entrances that take place, no less than thirteen energetically potent cosmic aspects are formed. And of tmen, only four are potentially harmonious. Let’s take a closer look at what the stars expect from us in the coming weeks:

Mercury (Cancer) opposition Pluto Rx (Capricorn): words that cause a rift

August opens with a tense aspect of opposition between Mercury in Cancer and Pluto retrograde in Capricorn, which means that the beginning of the month could come with revelations of information hitherto hidden that could shake the foundations of some relationships. Whatever they are, it is certain that feelings and some people’s pride will be affected strongly by these secrets that come to light. It is therefore recommended that we show more openness and honesty in the future.

Mercury (Cancer) opposition Saturn Rx (Capricorn): unspoken words

During or around August 3, we will feel the influence of another opposition, also drawn by Mercury in Cancer, this time to Saturn retrograde from Capricorn. If on the first day of the month it is possible to witness the emergence for secrets or information hidden for the sake of the status quo of certain relationships, this time we want certain things to be said, but any initiative in this regard is yet to come from our interlocutors. AstroFidelia advises us to curb our expectations.

Mars (Aries) square Jupiter Rx (Capricorn): enthusiasm blown out of proportions

During or around August 4, Mars in Aries adheres to a tense square aspect with Jupiter retrograde in Capricorn. Against the background of this astral configuration, we may attempt exercises of bravery that testify to the fact that we have not considered all the directions in which our initiatives can evolve. We may not be able to deliver on the promises to which we committed ourselves, or we may be on the wrong path, which does not support our efforts toward progress.

Mercury enters the sign of Leo: branding yourself

From August 5 onwards, Mercury transits the sign of Leo. If in the previous sign we were shy in some circumstances and we avoided taking the floor, in the coming weeks we show more courage and we are not afraid to put ourselves in the limelight. But the tendency remains to be dramatic, theatrical, to take things that we would otherwise have ignored personally. Certainly we do not take initiatives in bad faith, but we may go too far in trying to impose ourselves.

Venus progresses into Cancer: a focus on feelings

After August 7, Venus will move through the sign of Cancer. During its transit in the previous sign, our social and communication skills were enhanced to the maximum and we managed to redirect older relationships on the right track, while we forged new ones. Against this new transit, we are expected to invest more in the connections we form or maintain with those around us. AstroFidelia recommends being more careful, since we may be more vulnerable to disappointments.

Mercury (Leo) square Uranus (Taurus): words with a shock value

During or around 10, Mercury in Leo adheres to a tense square aspect with Uranus in Taurus, which means that, by the end of the first decade of August, we may see the first not-so-positive effects of this new placement of the communication planet. There is a risk of saying things that are ridiculous or shocking, and these social slips could do a lot more harm to the relationships that were not as stable as we imagined. A lot of tact is recommended on or around this day.

Mars (Aries) square Pluto Rx (Capricorn): actions causing sudden changes

During or around August 13, another tense square aspect is perfected. It is the one that Mars in Aries sends to Pluto retrograde in Capricorn. It reiterates the risk of taking action and/or making decisions that go against our causes, which cause serious ruptures. It is true that these abrupt changes were imminent, that they would have taken place at some point irrespective of our behaviour, but these stances Mars urges us to take may be too strict to be able to save anything in the future.

Mercury (Leo) trine Mars (Aries): inspiration and enthusiasm

It is only at the end of the second decade of the month, during or around August 17, that the first harmonious aspect of the month is drawn. It is the trine of Mercury in Leo to Mars in Aries. On the one hand, we are inspired and brave enough to make original decisions, to show a proactive positive attitude. But on the other hand, there is also the risk of letting ourselves be carried away by enthusiasm that dangerously exceeds moderate proportions. AstroFidelia advises to move forward cautiously.

Mercury enters Virgo: words that hit close to home

On August 20, Mercury enters the sign of Virgo, which is also its nocturnal domicile. Therefore, we expect to give up theatricality and our temporary bombastic style in favor of greater caution in how we express ourselves and behave. But nevertheless, we remain demanding in the way we present ourselves in society, with our image in the community. Instead, we are more critical of ourselves, which means that the risk of verging on ridicule in certain situations is lower.

Mars (Aries) square Saturn Rx (Capricorn): initiatives that lead to hardships

During or around August 24, Mars in Aries adheres to a tense square aspect with Saturn retrograde in Capricorn. This cosmic configuration suggests a risk of doing things and making decisions that will create shortcomings or obstacles in the future. We may upset people with influence or some interest groups, and in this way we may make ourselves unpopular. Once again, prudence can prove to be a reliable ally in certain circumstances.

Mercury (Virgo) trine Uranus Rx (Taurus); Venus (Cancer) opposition Jupiter Rx (Capricorn): relationships rooted in practicality, but only up to a point

During or around August 25, we may feel the effect of two astral aspects. On the one hand, there is the harmonious trine between Mercury in Virgo and Uranus retrograde in Taurus, which gives us a practical yet original attitude. On the other hand, we have the tense opposition drawn by Venus in Cancer to Jupiter retrograde in Capricorn. It suggests that some relationships may take some time to develop. AstroFidelia recommends that we pay closer attention to them.

Venus (Cancer) trine neptune Rx (Pisces): romance and disillusionment

During or around August 27, another harmonious trine is formed, this time by Venus in Cancer and Neptune retrograde in Pisces. On the one hand, this configuration offers a lot of creativity to the natives working in artistic fields, but in relationships it could operate like a double-edged sword. In some cases, it could bring extra romance, and in others, an increased risk of illusions and disappointment. It is therefore recommended to keep your eyes open and stay realistic.

Mercury (Virgo) trine Jupiter Rx (Capricorn): development plans for uncertain times

During or around August 29, it is Mercury’s turn to form another harmonious trine. This time, the configuration is perfected with Jupiter retrograde in Capricorn, which indicates that we enjoy a high level of productivity and a realistic vision that supports our plans for the career department. We see clearly what is not going well and we are looking for methods and strategies through which we can get things moving. AstroFidelia advises to avoid taking unnecessary risks.

Venus (Cancer) opposition Pluto Rx (Capricorn); Mercury (Virgo) opposition Neptun Rx (Pisces): relationships at a crossroads

On August 30, two astral aspects of opposition are formed. The first one is forged between Venus in Cancer and Pluto retrograde in Capricorn, and the second between Mercury in Virgo and Neptune retrograde in Pisces. These two configurations have in common not only the fact that they consist of a personal planet and a retrograde trans-Saturnian planet each, but also that both target relationships, be they professional, romantic or social, which tend to suffer at the end of the month for various reasons.

The simple amount of paragraphs above testifies to the fact that the last month of summer is full of tasks given by the stars. After a quiet start, which seemed to take into account the stress and worries experienced during the turbulent period we have all been going through, the summer season ends with a busy transition through autumn, which is meant to wake us up and put us to work.
