Scorpio - 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

Excitement and fun abound

This is an exciting month for you which brings you some amazing experiences, but it could also be a little confusing too when you start to look a little inward. You seem to be changing every day - you know you cannot keep on repeating the same patterns of the past, try as you might. Just go with the flow and accept the changes as they happen.

The start of the month is wonderfully magical and intense due to the solar eclipse in your house of career. This means the emphasis is on your professional identity and working life. It gives you more energy to create new goals for yourself with so much clarity than you have had in a few months. Your mood is lighter and you can see through to what you really need and are more able to manifest what you want for your life, despite any distractions. Use this energy well to make the most of this month.

At the start of this
month, you are mostly concerned with your outer world - your career, finances and reputation, due to the solar eclipse which occurs on Friday 1 August. While you are concerned with these areas of your life, you are also urged to honour your spiritual side as both the outer and inner together can help you achieve much more than if you focus on one area. If you heed the call of your inner soul, you will have more of a chance to really make the most imaginative of your goals a reality. Let yourself find your inner vision and go with it, as it will show you the amazing possibilities you have in your life and this amazing vision grows stronger as the month progresses.

The first quarter moon on Friday 8 August may cause you to doubt yourself as some issues start to unfold with your vision - it could be that a partnership you were counting on is not going to go ahead, someone could be unwilling to help you as they initially promised or there may be conflict between your inner and outer goals. This slight glitch may cause you to rethink where you are going and how you can modify your path in order to get to where you need to. Just make the necessary course corrections and get back on your path. You will get enough information (and you can do some research) to get back on track. Just ensure your approach is balanced and it will all work out okay.

The energy of the full moon and lunar eclipse on Saturday 16 August will clear your mind again and allow you to really adjust to looking at life in a new way. This is also a time where the inner and outer you may become more integrated and unified. Your inner soul is blossoming as you give it more free rein to shine.

The last two weeks of the month give you even better understanding of yourself and your situation. While this is not a time of major activity, it is a time when your sense of wisdom grows stronger.

Just remember that even if it appears contradictory, the universe is giving you everything you need to succeed.
