Go to Top The Higher Mind
Open-minded Archers start the month with the Sun in glamorous Leo, your 9th house of the higher mind. The focus turns to expanding your knowledge, exploring unknown territories and experiencing exciting adventure. If you cannot avail yourself to the outdoors then some armchair travelling on the computer may be your cup of tea. August will certainly bring changes, starting with a Full Moon and partial Lunar Eclipse on the 7th in scientific Aquarius, your 3rd solar house of communication. This is then followed by a New Moon and total Solar Eclipse on the 21st in Leo, steering you towards higher principles, insights, interests in cultural diversity, overseas connections and destinations. Mars camping in Leo will further opportunities for personal growth, study and bold undertakings. This month Mercury is set to go retrograde on the 13th, which will create career hiccups and delays in responses.

Meanwhile, expand your learning skills. Investigate the political scene, metaphysics and topics that whet your appetite. The 10th to the 12th is a perfect time to broaden your horizons, which can be brought about through your contacts with friends and their values or areas where their values impact you in some way. Archers will have a happier outlook with most associations, love connections and relationships. From the 13th to the 15th is a good time to study and be a teacher in some way. You will appreciate the traditional values of others, particularly regarding religion and ideology. The 16th to the 18th, depending on your natal chart, could be a turning point in your life. The upcoming Solar Eclipse will pave a different direction. You may connect with a significant person who will open up the doors of opportunity, but the 24th to the 29th could create strife or conflict with others.

The Full Moon and Partial Lunar Eclipse on the 7th occurs in inventive Aquarius, influencing your 3rd house of communication. 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 Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse will stimulate the expression of your emotions, getting in touch with friends, locally and abroad. Your higher ideals and beliefs are likely to be challenged, as it will be difficult for you to contain that high-spirited urge to argue over other people's viewpoints. You'll have an interest in travel, advanced study, taking up a new language, or involving yourself with a child's education. With Mars in your 9th house, it would be wise to take safety precautions while travelling overseas, especially in areas of conflict. You will also find yourself interacting with local activities, different levels of telecommunications, short trips or errands, and busier day-to-day tasks. However, Mercury turns retrograde on the 13th, which may interrupt travel plans, daily activities and study in the short term.

The 21st sees a New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse in noble Leo, influencing your 9th house of the higher mind. This Solar Eclipse will stimulate the compulsion to work hard at achieving your desires for travel, expanding your knowledge, and opening up your belief system. However, Mercury is in a retrograde phase, re-entering your 9th house on the 31st, when you will go back to fine tune your plans for adventure, study and travel. Friends may be influential in helping you attain personal growth, and will have a bearing on your value system. This will be a good time to work towards your hopes and goals for the future. Opportunities will be on the horizon to explore your vocational interests, study, justice, writing, publications and the law. You will develop your spirituality, delving into metaphysics, theology, mystical values, cultural dimensions, geography and history.

On the 22nd, the Sun moves out of Leo and into prudent Virgo, your 10th house of career and ambitions. Over the next few weeks you will consider important career moves, or the uptake of another career contract. New opportunities may avail themselves, giving you high profile attention from employers, those in your profession, and influential people in your life.
Go to Top Mercury Retrograde
Mercury remains in Virgo, your 10th house of career and ambitions all month. Just when you were ready to talk the talk and strive to open up discussions with employers and superiors, the Cosmic Prankster turns retrograde on the 13th. Your thoughts and ideas will remain focused on long-range plans and career moves, but there's likely to be indecision about plans on the domestic scene, real estate and property. You may have to curtail any decisive moves for the moment, especially if you are waiting for potential employers to get back to you, or others who would be instrumental in advancing your career. Take time to listen to other people's opinions before voicing your own, which could be open to criticism. You might find it difficult to concentrate, so you'll feel hampered in some way. Avoid procrastination and being caught up in minor details, or neglecting important information and facts.

On the 31st, Mercury briefly retrogrades into Leo, your 9th house of the higher mind. You'll be rather vocal about expressing your beliefs and ideals. Try not to display anger, or indulge in impulsive behaviour and making blunt remarks to others. Be careful while travelling or taking adventure tours -- and make sure your bookings are correct. On September 5th, Mercury turns direct in Leo before re-entering Virgo on the 10th, when you will redirect your attention to career matters. Mercury will be out of the shadow phase on September 20th, just as Venus enters your 10th house.
Go to Top Financial Fortunes
At the start of the month Goddess Venus remains in emotional Cancer, your 8th house of sex, death and taxes. Financial matters will be under scrutiny, with joint resources, investments, insurances, legacies, superannuation, taxes, money owed and owing all under the gun. Luck may be on your side, however, especially if you are asking for favours or loans. Money dropping onto your lap through sources you have forgotten about is also signposted. Business partnership ventures may do well too, as will other sources of income. From the 15th to the 26th, you may experience more tension in private relationships, or romantic encounters, especially when it comes to expressing your sexuality and hidden feelings. Watch that your passions, jealousy and possessiveness don't get out of hand. Difficulties may also arise over joint resources, and joint property.

On the 26th, the Goddess springs into Leo, your 9th house of the higher mind. This will awaken your urge for dealings with foreigners, or enjoying cultural delights and tasty cuisine. Some Archers may decide to venture on a holiday, a tour, or long-distance trip. Perhaps a visit to an art gallery, or a place of historical significance would do you the world of good. Law issues should go well, as will dabbling in creative writing and the arts. Improve your linguistic skills, and connect with friends afar.
Go to Top Daring Escapades
Egocentric Mars remains in Leo, your 9th house, till September 4th. This can be a very useful time for you, as you pour your energy into pursuing exciting and daring escapades. For the outdoor types, this will be an ideal time for sports and venturing into unknown territory. You'll enjoy learning something new and challenging, which will brighten your spirit. For the more conservative types, flicking through the pages of history, journals and ancient spiritual wisdom may be the key to your happiness. Share your enthusiasm and develop spiritually during this phase. The 18th to the 23rd marks a meaningful time to be with friends, celebrate a special event or even make a commitment to someone special in your life. You'll be in a gregarious mood, and just as eager to spin a yarn or two. Be aware of possible legal problems, but these should be smoothed over on the onset of Venus into your 9th house on the 26th.
