Dear spiritual people,
August is upon us, the month of the fixed fire sign of Leo The Lion. Leo is ruled by the almighty Sun and Leo’s energies vibrate through all our live even more so as there’s a New Moon with a Solar Eclipse in Leo on the 11th. July was filled with eclipses hence I must advise you to continue to make efforts towards achieving goals and ambitions as eclipses can amplify energies. Then we have a new cycle starting with the Full Moon on the 26th in the water sign of Pisces.
Do keep in mind there’s 6 retrogrades occurring with Mercury, Saturn, Pluto, Neptune, Mars and Uranus in this month, so if any of those are your planetary rulers, expect a little short-lived confusion.

Mercury adds his energy into this area, but he will be in retrograde till the 19th which creates misunderstandings, travel delays and often logical thought processes are hindered.

Retrograde energy has a tendency to create delays and problems, so it’s best to hold back with starting any new projects or plans until after Mercury returns direct from the 19th.

Dear Gemini, August has your ruler Mercury retrograding in Leo till the 19th which may place you a tad out of step with life in general. Some of you may experience slight blocks or erratic energies in response to thinking straight, writing, communicating and problems with travel plans. I would advise you to stay clear of starting anything new, including a new job or new romance, as usually we find that it becomes a headache in some way. This retrograde affects the logical thoughts process, creating a scattered or an illogical mind therefore the key is to keep busy and distracted. Major plans & projects should be put on hold just for a few weeks. This is all short-lived as energies return to balance & harmony after the 19th.

It would serve you to delay the start of any new projects, new relationships and avoid making investments. However, good news as this retrograde-energy could be hindered slightly with the almighty Sun, which is also travelling through this area adding its power towards success in abundance.

However after the 19th Mercury in this area is a great asset to help further your ambitions. This, in tandem with the expansion energy of lucky Jupiter in your sign till September creating a driving force, providing you’re helping to push it forward.
Dear Sagittarius August has the almighty Sun along with Mercury planet of communication and travel, in the areas of studies, journeys (both physical & mental) and in encouraging you to look for some kind of change in surroundings. Although the Sun creates a spotlight upon these areas, Mercury in retrograde till the 19th will be hindering them. Therefore it’s advised to not initiate any major plans in any area of life but instead, to re-evaluate, re-examine, re-sit exams, re-study and/or re-train. After the 23rd the Suns enters the sector of your career, goals and ambitions, helping you to achieve in these areas.

This retrograde could create delays or problems with jointly held resources so it’s always advised to not engage in signing off on investments, loans or mortgages.

By the time Mercury goes direct on the 19th it feels like you both understand one another better. In work or material matters, I would advise you to read the small print, making sure you check & re-check the finer details. You also have the almighty Sun travelling through these areas, which opposed to the above, the Sun can help to restore harmony, positivity and success.

It would pay-off to re-think, re-evaluate and re-check ideas and plans in readiness for Mercury moving direct, as often a different but better picture presents itself. The Full Moon is in your sign on the 26th of August and may well highlight areas that need your attention, whilst sharpening your psychic intuition.
