Summer is almost over, which means there are a few things to take care of before the fall arrives. August is usually busier than most, and that’s probably due to the Sun moving towards Virgo in the middle of the month. Fortunately, August 2020 will be the best for those with Aries, Cancer, and Leo placements, but there are five retrograde planets in the meantime.
In addition to the retrograde effects of Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto, Neptune, and Chiron, August kicks off with a Full Moon in revolutionary Aquarius on August 3. This lunation will be particularly powerful, as the Sun and the Moon will be challenged by rebellious Uranus, which also happens to be the governing planet of the Full Moon.
This difficult aspect is called a T-square and it will create an incredible amount of friction, especially when it comes to your feeling of security and comfort. Uranus, the planet of chaos, innovation, technology, rebellion, and unexpected change, will be the focal point of this aspect, which means that a revolution is taking place.
On August 4, Mercury will join the Sun in Leo before charming Venus enters sentimental Cancer on August 7, which will bring much-needed harmony to your world. Rebellious Uranus will be stationing retrograde in sensually driven Taurus on August 15th and this will challenge you to step out of your comfort zone, especially when it comes to your finances and ideas of comfort.
And a bright New Moon in Leo on August 18 will set the stage for a well-deserved new chapter. Knowing everything that lies ahead, August promises to be bright for Aries, Cancer, and Leo. Here’s why.
You are out there living your best life. Celebrate your blessings, Aries. Along with living your best life when the Sun passes through your fellow fire sign, you always go out to play when Leo season arrives.
With the Sun activating your fifth house of passion, romance, happiness, creative expression, and colorful authenticity, your inner light is automatically energized and revitalized.
Retrograde Mars and Chiron have been traveling together in your sign for a few weeks now and while the effects of this conjunction can easily feel like a heavy weight on your shoulders, it challenges you to be the brave warrior you’ve always been meant to become. Level up and celebrate your glow.
You shine and you indulge in sensual delights. Your birthday season may be over, but there’s always a reason to celebrate. Leo season is always filled with summer fun and festivities, but it just gets better.
Whenever the Sun enters its home sign, Leo, it shines directly through your pleasure-seeking second house of finances, values, comfort, stability, and unique talents. It’s a great time to sit back and feast on the fruits of your labor.
Venus will also be moving into your sign this month, so in addition to reveling in your sensual delights, you’ll also be radiating charisma.
You are celebrating your solar revolution. Happy birthday, Leo. Cheers to another magical trip around the Sun. Something truly magical happens every time the Sun sets your zodiac sign ablaze, and that’s partly because it’s your governing “planet” too.
Your relationships, especially those in the workplace, will be highlighted during this month’s Full Moon, and with Mars-Chiron activating your ninth house of education, travel, and long-distance travel, you will be challenged to step into your power in order to make a much-needed leap of faith.
So whether you’re taking a stand in your professional life or advocating for a well-deserved promotion, this month is all about tapping into your inner light. Venus will also be moving into your secretive 12th house of closure, spirituality, and all that is going on behind the scenes, so feel free to indulge in your solitude if necessary.
