August Horoscope ~ 2 to 12
The monthly cosmic report looks at the Sun and Mars through the decans and the most important aspects of the month. As we are in such discordant times, Mars’s movements should point out when the peasants are apt to revolt or when the globalist/STS* Elites act in a particularly revolting manner. We start the month with the Sun in Leo decan 2. This is not a shy Lion! The flamboyant side of Leo comes out blazing here. At this time we love a mission, and need to channel our egos into some great project. Leaving a big golden paw mark on planet earth is important to is at this time. If that is not possible though, resentment can brew into something quite ugly.
Disrespect certain groups at your peril, for that is when tyrants can erupt. On the other hand, bosses who are appreciated for their good work will really blossom. Leo decan 2 genuinely does have a big heart and is very generous with its patronage. The protective-parent influence is fierce, so leaders have to be careful that they don’t imprison their cubs out of fear, therefore stunting their development. Aug 1 to 4 Mars continues through Leo decan 1. A highly courageous position with no fear. Fights and conflict happen very easily. The size and power of the adversary does not serve as a deterrent, in fact it just makes people puff themselves up even more.
Aug 5 to 12 Mars enters Leo decan 2. Mars in Leo 2 is about as defensive as you can get. This is patriotism that boils over into true xenophobia. Defending your tribe and homestead is indeed necessary if invaders are a threat to your culture, but at this time both STS elites and common folk take it too far. The problem comes when Mars Leo 2 goes on the attack and thinks that their morals and way of life need to be imposed on less civilized ‘others.’
Full Moon ~ Aug 7 The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at 15º Aquarius. This lunar eclipse brings up themes of being brave, but in hidden or alternative realms. The internet allows people to speak out anonymously, so it gives courage that one may not have in the real world. Feelings are able to be expressed straight away published through this new technology. During this Lunar Eclipse expressing ourselves online becomes a sort of therapy.
Highlights ~ Aug 1 Mars in Leo decan 1, Mars on Praesaepe Aug 4 Jupiter square Pluto. Aug 5 Mars into Leo decan 2. Aug 7 Lunar Eclipse 15º Aquarius Aug 10 Mercury sextile Venus, Sun sextile Jupiter. Aug 12 Venus trine Neptune, Venus conjunct Ceres, Sun trine Lilith.
Aspect Pattern of the Month
Aug 15 Half way through the month Jupiter is really busy at 19º Libra. If you have anything around that degree then you shall be just as busy! Jupiter is the apex of a dark-cupid T-square and mediating between the very feminine, soft and naive Ceres/Venus conjunction opposite by a vampish Lilith/Pluto conjunction. The polarity is very stark, mother opposing the harlot, or the family man opposing the ‘bad-boy’. Jupiter is also the peak of a minor grand trine, sensible justice from Sun trine Saturn. This is a nice harmonizing and balancing energy. This referee will be much needed due to the Mars being in such feisty and passionate decans this month. (I just noticed the Sun happens to be on a fixed star that a friend bought me as a birthday present! Nice :))
August Horoscope ~ 13 to 22
Sun in Leo decan 3, means the theme of these 10 days is power and authority. Regulus officially entered Virgo in 2011 (I talk about this move in more detail in my Regulus post.) However this most important star was still in Leo decan 3 when most of us were born so we cannot ignore Regulus’s effects for this decan. Of course then these felines were born to rule, so leaders and sovereignty make the headlines. Physical prowess and animal magnetism are important at this time.
Sun Leo 3’s sex appeal is legendary, but can also become an obsession. Sex addiction is a danger at this time if we have no other outlet for our fertile creative expression. (Both Bill Clinton and Madonna have this placement) The Sun is at its most theatrical in Leo and desperately needs to create or pro-create. ‘Drama queen’ and ‘diva’ are cliché keywords to describe the Leo archetype, but it is never more true than in this decan. Sun in Leo 3 helps us work well under pressure and our heroic side rises superbly to the occasion if we are suddenly thrown into a crisis.
