Leo - 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

On the edge of a major breakthrough

Happy Birthday Leo!

This month starts with a solar eclipse in your sign, which means you are on the edge of a major breakthrough of some type. There are some major changes afoot in your life, which have been simmering on the back burner for a few weeks to maybe months and this is the month where they will come bursting through. You should try to prepare yourself and those close to you, for this outbreak. You should be able to feel the pressure so strongly about one area of your life that has been causing you to need to change (maybe you have not wanted to, but the universe is sure making sure you are going to) and that pressure is going to get strengthened until you cannot take it any more and have to just make those changes. It's going to be ok. While you prefer the status quo, even you know sometimes things need to be different to be better. Some Leos will feel the breakthrough more strongly and intensely than others, depending on whether they have been making smaller changes in the past few months, so the breakthrough is not such a great deal for them.

THe first quarter moon on Friday 8 August may be the first point of this major shift, it could present the catalyst that causes the changes to start to take place. You may also feel a little tense because it could mean this shift is causing you to look inward and make alterations to a few areas of your thinking or life, which could make you realise how unsatisfactory the recent past has been. Remember that whenever you may any changes, small or large, there is a period of adjustment, which can be unpleasant and hard to deal with (and may cause you to be hard to deal with), but this will pass once you accept that the past is over and the present is a much better place to be. Let go of old patterns, acknowledge old hurts and let it go.

The energy of the full moon and lunar eclipse on Saturday 16 August will be a time when you seem to find some clear vision through the fog of these changes, which you can see your future and what a lovely future it is. You will get through it and this is a time when you will start to see that, once you can accept it.

The last two weeks of August you will be trying out your new values/ideals/thought on the world and while it will be a time of trial and error, it will be quite nice because you are being real and true to yourself.
