August is here, and it’s usually a warning that fall is just around the corner. However, the equinox won’t be until mid-September, so there’s plenty of time to soak up in the sunlight and enjoy what feels like the last licks of summer. As you make the most of all you’ve got, pay attention to your August 2020 monthly spiritual message because a lot of excitement awaits you.
With five retrograde planets: Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto, Neptune, and Chiron, things might feel like they are taking longer than usual to take shape, but there is a silver lining here, and it is that the personal planets (in particular, Mercury and Venus) are finally working to their full potential.
This is of great help, especially when it comes to solving logical problems and the dynamics of relationships in general. August starts off on a rather lively note, with a revolutionary full moon taking place on August 3.
Electric and stimulating, this lunation will face the rebellious governing planet of Aquarius, Uranus. This will cause you not only to question your sense of security but also the value of your freedom.
Mercury, the messenger, will meet the Sun in the Leo on August 4, which will rejuvenate your mind and color your thoughts. Shortly after, Venus will finally wrap up in curious Gemini, after spending nearly five months traveling through its mercurial territory.
The post-retrograde shadow period of Venus will be over and its passage to sentimental Cancer on August 7 will bring an indispensable harmony.
There is a series of changes happening in August, and here is what you can expect, according to the stars:
The Full Moon in rebellious Aquarius will ignite your futuristic 11th house of hopes, wishes, and extended network, bringing closure to your sense of belonging to the world. In addition to recognizing and perhaps readjusting something in your social life, a Uranus square will likely challenge you to step out of your comfort zone.
While this is easier said than done, do your best not to resist the changes ahead. The challenges you face catapult you to something bigger than you can imagine. Chase your dreams and focus on your passions.
This month’s Full Moon in Aquarius will ignite your tenth house of authority, heritage, parents, and public reputation, bringing clarity to your professional life, as well as to the relationship you have with your superiors.
While in addition to something in this area of your life coming to fruition, your individuality and sense of self will also be examined this month. A hard Uranus square in your sign will likely challenge your value system, but it also helps you break free. The Leo season will highlight the vibrancy and emotional well-being of your family.
You think about the endless possibilities. Your mind is your superpower, Gemini. The Sun in Leo will radiate through your chatty third house of communication, thought process, and immediate circles during the first half of August before slipping into your fourth house of the home during the Virgo season.
An electric full moon in Aquarius will ignite your expansive ninth house of luck, travel, education, and personal philosophy, helping to achieve something that revolves around your long-term goals.
A hard square to Uranus via your 12th house of unconscious patterns could easily challenge your confidence, but instead of letting those insecurities consume you, take a step back and reassess your state of mind. The possibilities are limitless.
You celebrate your accomplishments. Put your self-worth first, Cancer. Your sense of security will be a priority with the Sun traveling through Leo via your second house of stability, finances, and pleasure-seeking possessions.
A Full Moon in Aquarius will ignite your erotic eighth house of sex, transformation, and shared resources while bringing an end to your intimate unions. This lunation will be challenged by electric Uranus through your 11th house of friendships, which means you might experience an unexpected breakthrough with someone from your social circle.
It could also revolve around a professional relationship, and perhaps a contract that you no longer agree on. Make sure you put yourself first.
A revolutionary full moon in Aquarius via your committed seventh house of partnerships will shed light on your individual relationships, but a hard square at rebellious Uranus via your career sector could also challenge your ability to meet someone halfway.
Something is being revolutionized in your working life, so don’t resist the changes that are coming. Use that energy to take your power and, more importantly, ask yourself if your current partnerships are helping you thrive in your career.
You put on weight on your shoulders. Your well-being is your priority, Virgo. With the Sun shining through your secret 12th house of karma, enclosure, spirituality, and all that is going on behind the scenes in the first half of the month, the focus will be on your privacy.
Everything from how you recharge your batteries to the sacrifices you make on a regular basis will be looked at during this time. A revolutionary full moon in Aquarius will shake your health-conscious sixth house of the order, your daily rituals, and your due diligence, and it will bring something to your daily life.
Whether personally or professionally, a difficult square in Uranus via your ninth house of faith might seem overwhelming. Perhaps your desire to roam and explore is being suffocated by your work routine right now. How much is too much?
You spend time with your friends. There is no better feeling than having someone to lean on, Libra. In addition to putting a magnifying glass on your 11th house of friendships, social circles, and sense of belonging to the world, a full moon in Aquarius via your expressive fifth house of authenticity and passion will more than likely dominate your energetic vibration throughout the Leo season.
This lunation will square off with rebellious Uranus via your erotic eighth house of sex, transformation, and shared resources, meaning you’ll likely experience an ego battle, especially if you’ve denied your own happiness. While the energy of this harsh T-square is just stressful, there is still an incredible opportunity for growth.
You are ready to take charge. Look up, Scorpio. With the Sun shining through your ambitious tenth house of authority, career, public figure, and destiny in the world for the first half of August, the Sun in Leo will help you feel more energized and revitalized in your professional life.
Meanwhile, an electric Aquarius full moon, via your domestic fourth house of family, inner foundations, and emotional well-being, will closure to your sense of security and family dynamics in general. However, a square to Uranus via your committed seventh house of partnerships could trigger a tug-of-war over your freedom. Setting limits will be important.
You are ready to pursue your dreams with confidence. Is it a risk to take, Sagittarius? This is usually the case, depending on your personal philosophy, but it’s important that you do your research this month. In addition to the Sun in Leo igniting your ninth house of philosophy, the full moon in Aquarius will ignite your talkative third house of communication and immediate circles.
This area of your chart has everything to do with your logical mindset and your ability to process information, which means that there is something that you haven’t fully understood yet.
A tough square to rebellious Uranus via your sixth house of daily duties could easily stifle your decision-making processes, especially if you haven’t followed a healthy daily routine. Either way, this energy is here to free you up so that you can level up, both personally and professionally.
You are revolutionizing your value system. Remember who you are, Capricorn. You’ve come such a long way, but with the Sun in Leo igniting your erotic eighth house of sex, intimacy, and shared resources, you could easily feel consumed by the things you haven’t yet accomplished.
While this ruthless persistence is very much aligned with your governing planet, Saturn, it is important to take a step back and celebrate your victories more often. A full moon in Aquarius will rock your pleasure-seeking second house of finances, values, and sense of self-worth.
In addition to bringing enclosure and clarity to this area of your life, this lunation will be challenged by a harsh square to electric Uranus via your expressive fifth house of fame. Don’t let your ego get in the way of your A-game, Capricorn. Instead, it’s a chance for you to think about something innovative, especially when it comes to your creativity and passion projects.
You free yourself in all ways. You are allowed to make the rules, Aquarius. What part of yourself are you willing to give up on? With the sun in Leo lighting up your committed seventh house of partnerships and one-on-one relationships, the focus will be on your partners, your contracts, and your ability to compromise.
While everyone knows that sharing is thoughtful, a revolutionary full moon in your sign will likely make you think otherwise.
This lunation will not only be challenged by Uranus through your fourth domestic house, but it will also highlight your values and your individual freedom. Are you happy with your current reality? How can you simultaneously create a sanctuary for yourself and your significant other?
You get to work and it shows. Sort your priorities, because it’s all about the details, Pisces. With the Sun in Leo shining through your orderly sixth house of health, daily duties, due diligence, and the work environment, a magnifying glass will hover over your productivity levels and overall well-being.
It is important to feel fulfilled mentally, physically, and spiritually in your day-to-day life, and the full moon in electric Aquarius will show you exactly why. This lunation will not only activate your spiritual 12th house of closure, karma, secrets, and all that is happening behind the scenes but will also bring to light the subconscious patterns that are depleting your energy supply.
A square to Uranus through your chatty third house of communication and reflection might cause some turmoil, but instead of dwelling on stress, this is a chance for you to find freedom in your daily life.
