August Femastrology 2019
By Astrologer and Psychic Victoria Bearden
August will be a welcome change after an intense and somewhat confusing July. If July was great for you, then August will be even better. But for those of us who got tangled up in the energy of Mercury Retrograde and the two eclipse, it will be a relief! Mercury, the planet of communication, went direct on July 31, so as the month begins, we still need a little patience as things start moving forward. Plans that have been on hold will work now, and problems will be easier to solve.
August 11, 2019 is a big day, as lucky Jupiter turns direct. Jupiter is the planet of expansion, growth, and opportunity. It’s in its home sign this year, Sagittarius, which is definitely a good thing. But it’s been sluggish in delivering any perks since this past April. Now Jupiter can start rolling with more steam, which will help with work, travel, legal, and educational pursuits, among other things. Problematic situations regarding truth and justice could take a turn for the better.
Uranus in Taurus goes into its yearly retrograde phase on August 11, 2019. Interestingly enough, Uranus, the ruler of change, goes retrograde on the same day Jupiter goes direct. This might prove to be a significant day in some ways, as the planetary tides change in two different directions. Uranus went into Earth Sign Taurus back in May of 2018, ushering in a new 7-year evolutionary cycle. Taurus is related to money, food, plants, animals, resources, and the land. It is the planet most associated with the life force of planet earth itself. While Uranus is in Taurus, we will see many changes regarding all things Taurean. This will include revolutionary developments regarding money and the way it is used. There will be huge breakthroughs, and breakdowns, related to agriculture and food production. And there will be even bigger revelations regarding climate change and its impact on our planet, and our way of life. Uranus’ retrograde cycle will give us a little reprieve before a new wave of energy takes off at the beginning of 2020.
Saturn in Capricorn continues its tedious retrograde path, requiring more effort and patience in many aspects of life. Saturn will remain retrograde until September 18, 2019, much to the chagrin of those experiencing their Saturn Returns, or other challenging aspects from the Ringed Planet. Those of you born around 1960 and 1989-90 are the ones having your Saturn Return. The good news is, you only have a few more months to go as you learn some of the most important lessons about your life path. In all honesty, even if your Saturn Return is good in many ways, it’s always better when it’s over!
There’s a Full Moon at 22° Aquarius on August 15, 2019. There’s a planetary lineup in fiery Leo in juxtaposition to the Aquarius Moon, creating exuberance and an air of expectation. This should be an exciting time for group activities, sports, and creative pursuits. Those who like to gamble might hit it big, but could also end up being the biggest loser, so don’t bet anything you can’t live without!
The Sun enters Earth Sign Virgo on August 23, 2019. When Virgo comes to town we tend to start preparing for the busy back-to-school, back-to-work Fall cycle.
Opportunity Days: August 3, 17, 18, 20, 22, and 24
