Aquarius Monthly Forecast for August 2017
The 21st brings a Total Solar Eclipse in Leo, your 7th house, a rare second successive New Moon in Leo. It will have quite a bearing on relationships, legal agreements, divorce settlements and any open conflict. It will serve as a conclusion. Whether a relationship is resilient enough to continue and withstand any storms may be totally out of your hands. Mars also sits in your 7th house creating friction within relationships, partnerships and legal agreements. Meanwhile Mercury is set to go retrograde on the 13th, in your 8th house. Set out to have all your financial affairs up to date well before this time.
In the meantime, from the 10th to the 12th, law dealings, broadening your horizons, study and travel are in the picture. From the 13th to the 15th, you'll be inclined to connect with old friends and groups that you belong to. Perhaps you could teach others from your experiences and tell your story. From the 16th to the 18th may well be a significant time in relationships, meeting that special someone, or connecting with a soul mate from the past. From the 24th to the 29th, in the wake of the Solar Eclipse, you may embark on a new commitment, or enter into a union. Others may find a connection with someone which instigates disagreements rather than harmony.
The Full Moon and Partial Lunar Eclipse on the 7th occurs in Aquarius, awakening your 1st house of personality and self-image. For the month of August, it is known as the Sturgeon Moon, a name given by native American tribes because they knew that the sturgeon (a large fish of the Great Lakes and other major bodies of water) were most readily caught during this phase. It is also known as the Harvest Moon, Fruit Moon, Green Corn Moon, Grain Moon, Blueberry Moon, and the Full Red Moon because as the Moon rises, it appears reddish through any sultry haze.
This is your personal Full Moon. It is the final Lunar Eclipse of the year will review a culmination of events from back in February affecting how your personal and emotional needs have influenced your relationships. This will also influence partnerships, marriage, alliances, agreements, litigation, and dealings with open enemies. With Mercury about to go retrograde on the 13th, make sure you understand the finer points in documents, particularly in finance commitments and negotiations.
Warlord Mars occupies your 7th house all month, giving you an ego boost. However, getting things done will be more difficult to accomplish by yourself than it might be with a partner or partners. Even if you want to be left alone, other people will find a way to physically intrude. Beware of emotional flare-ups. Verbal confrontations over money, ego differences and dramas are all in the frame. Benevolent Jupiter however will rule by giving you some scope with legal battles, good news, and future commitments.
The 21st sees a New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse in noble Leo, influencing your 7th house of significant commitments. Though some things may go well in spite of this influence, you are not favoured to emerge the winner in an ego-contest. Your influence over other people and your ability to elicit their cooperation occupies your mind. Do others see you as strong, independent and forceful? Should you be married or living with someone, you will most likely assess your role in the union from a rather ego-centric viewpoint. Do you dominate your partner, or is it the other way round? Does the partnership help, or impede your personal growth? Has your monetary potential or social status been improved by the relationship? These concerns apply equally to your business alliances. Ego seems to be a bigger factor and you become more assertive in legal matters, contracts and negotiations. There does seem to be more than your fair share of open conflicts and opposition, but expressing undue stubbornness or antagonism, however, makes it particularly difficult to resolve conflicts, or reach compromises. Best not to resist the authority of others or to exhibit arrogance or aggression that at any other time might cause your opponents to back down. You have reached the halfway point in your birthday year which makes it a good time to measure your progress (or lack of it) over the last six months.
On the 22nd, the Sun moves out of Leo and into penny-wise Virgo, your 8th house of sex, death and taxes. In the next four weeks, it will be time to check through your financial picture, joint resources, investments, superannuation, insurances, and taxes. You'll take a closer analysis of your outgoings, money coming in through other sources and prioritise debts. You'll also concentrate on your close relationships, take an interest in life after death, mysteries, and topics that are intriguing. However with Mercury due to retrograde on the 13th, insure you fully understand the finer print on finance documents and agreements.
Don't make any hasty decisions with finances just yet, but filter through your statements and read up on the finer points of agreements. If you are waiting on a loan or credit card approval, an increase in your earning or other sources of income, these will take longer than usual. On the 31st, Mercury retrogrades briefly into Leo, your 7th house. On September 5th, Mercury turns direct in Leo before re-entering Virgo on the 10th. Mercury will be out of the shadow phase on September 20th, allowing you to make clearer decisions with finances.
From the 15th to the 18th, you may be under some emotional fears about work, travel and health. Perhaps you have been avoiding a long journey, seeing family, or settling a legal issue. Old fears, lovers and people from the past could tug at your heart strings. An office romance could emerge if you don't control your passions.
On the 26th, the Goddess dances into Leo, your 7th house of significant commitments. This will be a superb time for relationships all round. Turn on your charm for the love of your life, resolve difficulties, and show your pleasant side in fulfilling the each other's needs. Reach a compromise in agreements, work towards a common goal and understand your partner's point of view. This will be an auspicious time for an approaching engagement, marriage or new love relationship entering the scene.
