Cancer - 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

Your financial security is uppermost in your mind

At the beginning of this month you may be feeling the energy of the solar eclipse in your house of security (financial and material), which means you are more likely to think about these areas of your life and how it is impacting your life to a high degree, without giving you space to tune into your spiritual side to the level that you would like. This may cause you to try to move to a more spiritual way of thinking (without neglecting your finances or responsibilities) so that you can feel more balanced in your life. Practical matters are too boring if they are the mainstay of your life, your soul needs to soar and be unfettered to experience the wonders of this world.

The first quarter moon on Friday 8 August will provide some obstacles in your path. This is a way that the universe is trying to show you where you need to make some changes, to help you transform that part of yourself or your life, so that you can be much happier. It does not seem likely that you are ready for major transformations, but you can still change some habits that have long since served their purpose, are no longer useful for you and in fact may be somewhat damaging. Just recognise the obstacles as challenges and opportunities to get your life to where you want it to be and that the obstacles would not be there if everything was going really well in every way.

The energy of the full moon and lunar eclipse on Saturday 16 August will bring up some thoughts about how you relate to other people and whether it makes you happy enough.

This is a time where your loved ones do feature strongly in your life, just know that you have what it takes to understand why these people are in your life and how you can best define your relationships so that they make you happy.

By the time of the last quarter moon on Saturday 23 August, you will feel like you have gained so much more insight and understanding of yourself and your life and how you can achieve more by letting go of the past and just believing in yourself.
