Finding Your Voice
This month, there’s lively planetary activity taking place in Taurus and your communication sector. Taurus rules the written and spoken word in your horoscope. It’s about your siblings and neighbours, your local community, transport and local travel.
You could find your voice this month and become an activist or take the lead in your local neighbourhood. This is because action planet Mars is in Taurus up until the 20th alongside rebel planet Uranus.
Uranus is the only planet to turn retrograde this month on the 24th and this date could be lively. In fact, it’s gearing up to be an argumentative and passionate month ahead. Whatever you read or hear, this could stir your emotions and spur you into action.
You may find it hard to hold back as the month begins. This is when there’s a Mars-Uranus conjunction in Taurus on the 1st/2nd. You may be fighting for other people or defending the underdog. You might be caring for others or helping those less well-off than yourself.
It’s lively planetary activity calling you forth. Plus, the karmic North Node is conjunct Mars & Uranus at the start of August. Therefore, you may sense the wheel of fortune turning and find it impossible not to keep moving forwards.
It’s likely to be a month when you find your voice, whether you’re teaching, podcasting or sharing your ideas on social media. Uranus is the technological planet and it’s a good month to update your skills or learn new techniques.
Mars isn’t an easy planetary influence, however, and there could be clashes on the 1st, 7th & 27th. You might be striving for peace & quiet but find disruption and noise instead. An ongoing issue with a neighbour or sibling could get triggered once again.
Also, the Saturn-Uranus clash is back. This was the big planetary aspect of 2021. Saturn in Aquarius and the most hidden sector of your horoscope square to Uranus in Taurus and your communication sector.
These two planets are lively this month and remain within orb of their square aspect until the end of the year. An issue that was big news last year could be back.
This is bound to rabble-rouse or agitate your principles. You may want to add your voice to what’s going on in society or the world around you. You could feel fired up and ready for action.
Full Moon Aquarius
During August, this is Leo season. The Sun is here until the 23rd, talk planet Mercury is in Leo until the 4th and the planet of relating Venus enters Leo on the 11th. Therefore, it’s a good month to focus on your work and routine, your health and well-being.
One of the loveliest planetary aspects this month takes place on the 18th when Venus in Leo aligns with your ruling planet Jupiter in Aries and your personal money sector. You may receive a gift or bonus or be offered a job that boosts your earnings.
The pivotal month of the month is likely to be the Full Moon on the 12th which cuts across the Leo/Aquarius axis of the zodiac. Full Moons are a time of illumination when the Moon shines at its brightest. This can bring enlightenment or insight and it’s a good time to trust your intuition or make a key decision.
However, the Moon is conjunct Saturn in Aquarius and the Full Moon is square to the Mars-Uranus conjunction in Taurus. This is a lively combination. It may reveal where limitation and restriction lies and you feel held back. Also, where you’re ready to break free, act fast and take a leap of faith.
Uranus often coincides the unexpected, whether you hear news of a job or a contract comes to an end. Keep your ear to the ground as it might be something you hear unexpectedly that sets new plans in motion. Ring the changes if you can during the Full Moon as you won’t want to be chained to a desk.
Also, tap into your mutable star sign nature and be willing to be flexible and adaptable. Travel plans may change at short notice this month or you have to act fast to step in to help someone out.
This is a good month to restore your energy, look after yourself and do whatever makes you happy. This may be even more important if there’s a lot of drama taking place.
Also this month, it’s important to consider your home and family and how this impacts what you want to do in the world. This is because action planet Mars moves into Gemini, the star sign at the base of your horoscope on the 20th. It’s a good time to be ambitious about home and family plans.
Plus, Mars remains in Gemini for an unusually long time. Mars will be here until March 2023 as it turns retrograde in the last two months of the year. Whatever you’re currently engaged in regarding your home, family or past, be aware that you’re playing the long game.
Mars in your home and family sector can be argumentative. Perhaps, you have to confront what’s challenging in order to bring things out into the open. It’s unlikely to be a quiet time at home or within your family but at least Mars enables you to get things moving.
Love & Relationships
Finally, running throughout the month, there’s a steady and calming influence within your close relationships. Love planet Venus is in Cancer and your romance sector until the 11th. Cancer rules your children and Venus is playing a mediating role in the livelier planetary activity. Notice who steps in to offer their love and support.
Plus, your partner planet Mercury moves through Virgo and your relationship sector from the 4th to the 26th. It’s imperative that you have someone to talk to, someone who’ll listen and play a supportive role in your life, perhaps someone behind the scenes.
The Sun enters Virgo on the 23rd and there’s a New Moon here on the 27th, a symbol of new beginnings. Therefore, love and relationships could play a grounded and significant role in your life. You may recognise who’s there for you and look at a person who’s been around for a while with new eyes.
