Capricorn - 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

Changing values and some confusion

Your feelings are more changeable as is your philosophies and values in life. You are going through a process of discovery of new information in your life and you are starting to realise there is more to life (and people) that you realised (or maybe you just did not want to acknowledge it before). You may be a little confused this month because your logic is not working quite so well, with your emotions taking over instead. These feelings will be even more pronounced during the second half of the month.

At the start of the month, you are ready for the big changes that you have been working towards lately. The solar eclipse at the start of the month is in your house of intimacy and personal transformation. This energy is urging you to recognise those important people in your life and to let them know just how important they are to you. You need to balance the positive energy of this eclipse with your own sense of self so that you can effectively help yourself with your own transformation.

The first quarter moon on Friday 8 August may cause some difficulties, but you are in a good position to negotiate towards a positive outcome. The great energy of this month will cause you to be more positive about yourself than you have been in a long time (or ever), so if you meet with any resistance (your own or other people's), you will not be so pessimistic about it and will be better placed to remove it in a positive way. You are in a cycle of change that started around your birthday, which has an important transit over the this month.

The energy of the full moon and lunar eclipse on Saturday 16 August reiterates the importance of other people in your life and in particular, how you balance your energy on yourself with that which you give to others. You may also be conflicted about how to integrate (whether you should or not) your resources with other people. You may also be concerned about your finances in general (an area of major importance for you), given the fluctuations in the world at present.

The last quarter moon on 25 August may have you feeling that you are much more wiser about yourself and the world. And just be aware you should note down your dreams around this time (and early next month too), because they may be giving you some solutions and advice that you had not yet considered.

The lesson of this month is a better definition of who you are, which will ultimately make you stronger at all levels.
