Pisces - 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

Intense energy and developing a higher purposes

A rather intense and interesting month in the middle of a big year.

At the start of the month, the solar eclipse occurs in your house of higher purpose. You are one of the signs who yearns to have a higher purpose and to commune with a higher spirit, so this is perfect for you. You are really connected with finding more meaning in your life this month and how you behave impacts this. You are starting to realise that without some higher purpose in life, then life is not very satisfying, even with hedonistic pleasures in your life. You really feel the urge to find your calling in life this month - whether or not you find it this month is irrelevant, it is the journey that is the important part and the knowledge that you are on your way to find it.

You may be feeling subconsciously dissatisfied with your existence or with your search and it could hinder you somewhat for a while, but do not let it deter you from your goals this month.

This solar eclipse is a really powerful influence in your chart and it occurs from the first day of the month, so you will find yourself fully engages in finding your higher purpose the whole month.

The first quarter moon on Friday 8 August may be a time for obstacles and hindrances in your progress, but you need to realise that there will always be some sort of obstacles in life, but it does not need to mean the end. You are trying to understand your life in terms of a higher existence and this is a time when you must really fight for yourself and move past any obstacles - they cannot stop you if you are really determined. If you do not, it could cause you to go a few steps back in your progression and this would hinder your progress quite dramatically and cause you a lot of irritation and annoyance.

The energy of the full moon and lunar eclipse on Saturday 16 August represents a culmination of the energies of the month, where you feel that you can achieve at least some of what you are trying to achieve and takes you to the point where you want to share what you have learnt with your friends (as you have been conducting this learning solo until now).

By the time of the last quarter moon on Saturday 16 August, you are wiser and benefit from being mentored by other, who may be able to provide a great sounding board and provide you the right amount of practical and realistic advice. Just be aware that even with this wonderful advice from your friends and loved ones, you still need to use your own mind to make the final decision about what you will do - the final choice is always yours.
