Aries - Forecast August 2008

General Planetary Action - August 2008

What energy the stars are creating this month

This month there is some major planetary energy happening (with two eclipses - one to the sun and another to the moon), which of course means this is going to be an intense and emotional month for some people more than others, while some signs will feel the positivity of this energy and become more energised and use it to their advantage to get their dreams started. There two eclipses cause some conflicting energy - with delays and obstacles around the middle of the month (lunar eclipse), while the solar eclipse is sending wonderfully positive energy to buoy everyone.

The reason the solar eclipse is so positive is because it occurs in the Sun's natural placement - Leo, so it is exalting (beneficial and enhanced) in this placement, whereas the the lunar eclipse is more difficult because it is in a difficult placement - Aquarius, which is in a difficult angle to the Moon's natural ruler (Cancer), so this is why there are more problems associated with the lunar eclipse.

The planetary energy this month:

  • 1 August - solar eclipse in Leo
  • 8 August - first quarter moon
  • 16 August - lunar eclipse in Aquarius
  • 16 August - full moon
  • 23 August - last quarter moon

Rewards for the recent hard work

At the start of this month, the Solar Eclipse occurs in your sector of creative self-expression and this means there will be some excitement and interesting (and even) romantic times that come along with it. You will be looking for finding new ways to use this energy you seem to have acquired and will seemingly find solutions that you didn't even realise existed before. It seems as if the path and the journey is a lot clearer to you.

The lunar eclipse that occurs on 16 August brings you the start of the rewards of your recent efforts. If you haven't been working that hard, then instead, it will just show you will have to work harder in order to get to your goals. You will learn a good lesson either way.

This month sees you exploring your intuition more deeply than you have ever before and you should be quite surprised (in a good way) as to the level of information you are now receiving from the universe.

Around the first quarter moon on Friday 8 August, you may come to realise what is making you fearful of success (in whatever area that this occurs). Part of this is due to your growing acceptance of what lessons the universe is trying to make you learn and part of it is a better understanding of yourself and what is holding you back. Just pay attention to everything that is going on around you, as that will serve you will in finding your way.

There is a full moon and the lunar eclipse on Saturday 16 August, which again are focused on helping you discover yourself and how best to leave the old patterns behind and try a new and better way. In addition to this, the universe is also asking you to be better at deciding what is the truth and what is illusion from other people.

The last quarter moon on Saturday 23 August you may be a little sad, most likely because you have realised those who seemed to be truthful were not and may not have been the best influence in your life. You just need to know that this is a lesson you have to learn in order to evolve and take care of yourself.

Finally, this month you may find that the catalyst that helps to launch your career in another (or just the same and better) direction is revealing itself to you. Just make sure you do not plunge head first into whatever scheme or idea is offered to you - think carefully about it first (even get some realistic and practical advice from a pragmatic friend).

A good month for your social life too.
