Astro Overview for August

We are heading towards a summer month which brings our work to fruition, offering time for holidays and moments of celebration. Under the demonstrative and warm energy of Leo, we remember that each of us is special in its own way. In addition, the planets in Aquarius teach us to relate with fair-play on a large scale and consider the collective circumstances, while the Virgo-Pisces opposition requires high professionalism, modesty and empathy.

Thus, throughout this month we maintain the meticulous and accurate attitude of Virgo, even if the transits through Leo will not allow us to become extremely serious. What does happiness mean to us and what makes us feel authentic? – these questions will guide us especially during the first three weeks of August. Gradually, Libra begins to participate in the astral equation of the present, turning our attention to relationships, collaboration, conflict mediation and searching for tranquility. Let's follow the sequence of August’s main cosmic events!

Sun and Mercury (Leo) opposing Saturn (Aquarius): authority and thoroughness

During the first days of the month, the Sun and Mercury meet in Leo, forming a close opposition to Saturn. Together, these three planets speak about confronting our mental barriers. We realize that pride can block our reasoning and prevent us from thinking more freely or objectively. AstroFidelia recommends self-control and practicing mindfulness. Positively, we can have refined, original and creative ideas. Our intellectual effort can bring us self-esteem, prestige and authority.

Venus (Virgo) trine Uranus (Taurus): unusual beauty

On August 3 Venus and Uranus form a harmonious aspect between Earth signs. By taking small steps, we can bring innovation into our relationships. We might end up in the company of people who support our progress, especially at a professional level. We adopt an original aesthetic style and enhance our beauty in unconventional ways. We can achieve financial gains through modern technology or we can make inspired and useful online purchases.

Mercury-Sun (Leo) square Uranus (Taurus): rebellion and nervous tension

Between August 4 and 8, we will feel strongly the Taurus-Leo tensed square. Around August 4, our ideas collide with collective rules and system rigidities. As a consequence, a certain irritation and tendency to speak in an impatient, arrogant, shocking way might result. Around August 8, we are ready to confront the whole world in the name of our personal freedom. We seek to implement our ideas on a large scale. Simplicity contradicts opulence and luxury.

Venus (Virgo) opposing Neptune (Pisces): minor and big discontents

On August 10, the Venus-Neptune opposition is exact, creating a dreamy and idealistic atmosphere. We make room for romance, but we insist on details, and imperfections of all kinds can prevent us from completely enjoying what we have. AstroFidelia recommends that we pay extra attention to our true desires: what do we really want and how achievable are those intentions? The small disappointments in relationships remind us that our partners sometimes make mistakes just like us and that we all have our own shortcomings.

Mercury (Leo) opposing Jupiter (Aquarius): grandiose thoughts

Around August 11, we need to work on prioritizing ideas and words. On the one hand, we have a lot of information to analyze and communicate; on the other hand, we must synthesize it and not get lost in insignificant details. Logic merges with intuition. We can misjudge if we don't take things seriously, assuming we're going to get away with situations that require deeper understanding. If we trust our intelligence and stay on the side of the truth, we will inspire others with our magnificent ideas.

Venus in Libra: charming and being charmed

With Venus in Libra, from August 16 we will become more romantic and look for the company of polite, harmonious, elegant people. In the name of grace and beauty, we seek to make ourselves attractive and establish pleasant connections with others. We feel a deep desire for peace, tranquility and comfort. However, AstroFidelia, recommends avoiding compromises and not hiding our true emotions behind nice appearances. We can meet people we're very compatible with and start new relationships.

Mercury conjunct Mars (Virgo): daring minds

On August 19 we have the opportunity to bravely assert our intelligence. Our perceptions gain precision and unusual acuity. We quickly observe precious details which help us win various disputes. We demonstrate force of argument and give our best to do our work impeccably. We need to feel useful and improve our knowledge. It is good not to become too critical with people around us.

Uranus retrograde (Taurus): inner originality

From August 20 to mid-January 2022, Uranus will be retrograde. This month we are refocusing our attention on our inner longing for freedom and progress. We establish our own opinions about what it means to be original. Some eccentric social currents can stir up our resistance. We discover new perspectives and analyze how much we have achieved so far from our previous plans for change.

Mars (Virgo) trine Uranus (Taurus): surprising actions

On August 22 we are under the influence of a harmonious aspect between Mars and Uranus in Earth signs. We thus demonstrate practical ingenuity. We act methodically, step by step, based on concrete things and tested information. On a physical level, we make progress if we turn to natural therapies and simple diets. By following the impulse to do things in a different style than before, we can achieve useful results.

Venus (Libra) trine Saturn (Aquarius): friendship and fairness

Around August 23, we combine affection with responsibility. We understand other people’s limits and approach them tactfully. We have more patience in our social interactions. Good manners help us maintain cordial relations with a larger circle of friends, but we also impose our rules and ask for respect. Relationships with older people help us evolve.

Mercury (Virgo) opposing Neptune (Pisces): imagination and confusion

On August 25, Mercury forms an exact opposition to Neptune. We're trying to find exact definitions of phenomena that are hard to put into words. Reason and imagination manifest themselves simultaneously. Our logic is colored with diffuse impressions and emotions. Our thoughts are influenced by the collective atmosphere and it can be difficult for us to concentrate. AstroFidelia recommends time for meditation. Artistic expression can cleanse our minds of unnecessary worries.

Mercury in Libra: mental balance

Towards the end of the month, on August 30, Mercury joins Venus in Libra. We observe and appreciate the beauty of our surroundings. Harsh and tactless words bother us more. Our way of speaking carries something artistic and elegant. We make harmonious connections between words and ideas. We become more aware of other people’s points of view. It may be harder for us to decide on specific perspectives.

August invites us to enjoy ourselves and our loved ones, while maintaining a sufficiently cautious, methodical and effective approach of things. Leo’s energy will be celebrated through creativity and self-centering, Virgo brings hard work and perfectionism, Libra asks for grace and cooperation. In the meantime, Aquarius and Pisces continue to suggest humanitarianism, broad thinking and a holistic understanding of life, so that we can achieve important progress.
