Hello Friends of Astrology,
August begins with a bang. The planets Mars (action) and Uranus (sudden and spontaneous) arrive at the point of the north node (energy moving forward) in Taurus. This vibe is giving us the opportunity to explore what action to take that will bring us Taurus values of stability and beauty in our lives. With Uranus the action to take can come on in a sudden or even an unpredictable manor.
Perhaps you have given up on looking for a position and suddenly your dream job is posted. Well this vibe is the opportunity to go for it. Or perhaps finding a new place to live has been fraught with obstacles, and then you hear from someone out of the blue who knows of a great place.
Look to where this combination is happening in your chart, (the house of Taurus in your chart) and you will discover more ways to embrace the opportunities the cosmos is bringing. The shadow side of Mars Uranus and the north node is disruption on the planet; fires, earthquakes, storm. If you live in a sensitive area to these problems be prepared with the essentials in case you need to evacuate quickly. When you read about Mars Uranus on the web you will be alerted to be cautious in your movements since it is one of the signatures for accidents. If you are traveling at this time it would be in your best interest to be extra careful especially if the transits to your chart are difficult.
Aquarius full moon 2022
The full moon in Aquarius is on the 11th of August. Every year the full moon of Aquarius is about finding our tribe, where we feel connected, and it asks us to seek a deep sense of belonging. We may look for it outside of ourselves initially, however ultimately it is an internal feeling of connecting with all that is. That said, the 3D world of what feels like home, and who we want to be with is an essential part of the journey of the cosmic connection with all that is.
This full moon is working extra diligently this year to help us hone in to the where to, what is, and who to be with questions. The moon in Aquarius opposite the sun in Leo are square Uranus, the planet that brings opportunity and impulsive feelings to be spontaneous and make sudden changes. You can think of it as the energy of living in the moment. For example: say a friend has a major breakup just before a long planned and already purchased holiday and she asks you to go on the trip with her. It can be a great opportunity although the consequences of suddenly not showing up at work make the decision complicated.
The full moon is also vibrating with Saturn, with Saturn whispering in your ear, is this really in your best interest? Another cosmic pattern of this full moon is an innate understanding that life is a mystery; and as much as we think we know, or prepare, we don’t really have all the answers. Being in the flow is what ultimately allows us to feel the universal connectedness our higher consciousness seeks.
An everyday level of connecting with this full moon is to reach out to people you cherish as friends. Being with others that accept you as you are and want the best for you even if it is not what they want is super sweet now. The energy can bring to the surface any patterns where you feel unaccepted or frustrated with friends that can’t give you what you want them to. Sometimes it is simple frustration about doing something together when you have the time and they don’t, or a more wounded feeling from a lack of love, empathy, caring or not having your friend be someone you can truly count on.
The sun moves into Virgo on the 22nd shifting us ever so gently into a back to school mode. Getting back to a work routine at the end of August gears up as people finish their vacations, kids get ready or are already back in the classroom, and the dorms at the universities are buzzing with students. Uranus is stationed (meaning very strong) to go retrograde on the 24th. The week of August 22- the 28th has powerful Uranus undertones. The desire to be untethered and free to create your life as your choosing is palpable. People can suddenly pop in or out of your daily life, especially around your work.
The new moon in Virgo on the 27th is at 4 degrees of Virgo. The Sabian symbol for this Virgo new moon from M. E. Jones is: A man dreaming of fairies. The Rudhyar version is: A Man Becoming Aware Of Nature Spirits And Normally Unseen Spiritual Agencies.
This new moon will give us the ability to connect with the unseen; whether you relate to spirit guides, your higher self, a guardian angel, or fairies this is a wonderful time to sense and know that what we see and feel is not all there is. There is a reflection back to the Aquarius full moon as in the new moon Venus is at the same place the sun was at the full moon, which means it is resonating with the planets Saturn and Uranus.
In the Virgo new moon, Venus, the planet of what we love, value, and what will help us create a beautiful life for us, is connected with Saturn the planet that wants us to release all that is unnecessary and focus our attention on that which is most important. Saturn has a reputation of being difficult. The difficulty lies in the pressure of making tough decisions to have what is most important in your life that allows you to be authentic and true to your highest and best self. Sometimes that means letting go of relationships, jobs, and other aspects that brought security in the past.
Venus in the new moon is also connected with Uranus, allowing for spontaneous openings in areas of our life that will bring us happiness and joy is another strong message that will reverberate over the next weeks.
August promises to be an interesting month. Enjoy!
With love, light, and gratitude,
