Virgo - 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

Use your imagination

This month starts with a solar eclipse, which is a time of grand imaginings and fantasy, where you feel like you are swept away in your own dream land that cushions you from the harshness of the world somewhat. It will allow you a nice escape away from the realities of the world. You may have quite a busy fantasy world this month, which may surprise you as you don't often give into much, as you are generally a pragmatist, preferring reality to fantasy, but this month, your imagination is allowed free rein and this could show you some wonderful fantasies that you may even be able to implement into reality at some stage. Listen to your dreams and wild imaginings, as they could be telling you something about what your true goals and aims in life are (even if you have lost touch with them in recent times, or have lost hope that they could become a reality). Write it all down and see what you can envision for your future, work through what is achievable and what you need to let go. This is a wonderful time for you, so try not to let the harsh realities of life and your many responsibilities bog you down too much and take you away from your dreams, because that you leave you feeling frustrated and irritable. Balance is the key to making sure your priorities are you first - you need to stop worrying about everyone else and put yourself first for once (and it isn't being selfish).

The first quarter moon on Friday 8 August is when the reality and practicalities of life may put a bit of pressure on you, so this is when you really need to take a stand for yourself, to ensure your needs are being met, but ensure you do it with assertiveness and balance. Just hold on for a few days, because on Sunday 10 August, your ruler Mercury enters your sign and gives you more confidence and strength, allowing you to connect with other people in better ways (think about how you have been imagining this could be happening earlier in this month and put it into reality). It is also at this time where you start to realise your path in this world may be changing somewhat and you are only just starting to see this manifestations now.

The energy of the full moon and lunar eclipse on Saturday 16 August will allow a fulfillment of one goal or vision, or maybe it could cause you to question the new direction, because you fear where it will take you. You could also be a little confused about life in general. Be strong and fearless.

The last quarter moon on Saturday 23 August, when the Sun enters your sign will be a trying time, where you feel torn between your future visions and fantasies and your past achievements, but you need to think more clearly about your situation so that you can find a middle ground and work out where you belong.

The last week of August will see you pondering on your life and how you will make your new goals a priority with practical assurity.
