August 2014 Astrology
Every year when the Sun moves into Leo it is the time of year to follow your heart and find your bliss. This year has extra potential to make that happen as Jupiter has moved into Leo for 12 months. August begins with an enormous surge of planetary energy to expand our horizons, get out of a rut, open your arms and take in the experiences the world has to provide. The full moon on the 10th in Aquarius represents a time to open your heart with love, joy and acceptance of your friends for who they are and not for who you wish they were. Release the expectations, most subconscious, that the people around you will give you approval. Once released the freedom you will feel will liberate you to live in authentic joy. There is a strong Saturn with the full moon and the feeling of being blocked can prevail yet the high side of Saturn is to be realistic in expectations and be willing to put in the effort to have what is in alignment with your highest good. Venus spends the first half of the month in Cancer, a caring and sensitive placement, then she moves into Leo on the 12th where fun and laughter reign. Mercury enters Virgo on the 15th and is a favorable time to purchase communication devices and stock up on items that support your health. The sun enters Virgo on the 23rd marking a collective back to school energy, even though the school system in many parts begin under the cycle of Leo, Virgo is a time of learning and improving. The new moon in Virgo on the 25th is loaded with a mixture of spiritual longing, empathy, imagination, intensity, creativity, intuition and focused effort. Surround yourself with individuals that support your dreams and have compassion or break free from those who just donít get it. Venus squares Mars on the 27th can be a time of conflict in precarious relationships and the end of the month has the lingering effect of the Sun Neptune opposition on the 29th reminding us to tap into our intuition and have deep compassion for others.
Have a wonderful month and happy Summer!
