AUGUST HOROSCOPES 2021

August 2021 brings friendly skies than we have seen in recent months, Mercury’s retrograde and Eclipse season in May – July was especially difficult. The Sun’s transit of Leo brings strength of illumination and vitality after the moody depths of Cancer season. Paths and directions might be more securely lit and enthusiasm with encouragement abound.

Mercury moving into Virgo the sign of its rulership and exaltation along with Mars helps offer motivation to problem solve some of those niggling problems helping bring solutions. A helpful influence in unpredictable times. The issues to solve will be clearer to see and the answers more accessible.

The new moon in Leo on 8th August, helps with new cycles in the Leo aspects of our chart and lives. The second full moon in Aquarius in a row, on 22 August will be opposite Jupiter the great benefic. This second full moon helps to create opportunity for any problems or restrictions that were presented when the last full moon on 24th July was in aspect to Saturn. This second full moon will also be in aspect to the royal fixed star of Regulus; which could manifest in help or assistance from someone in a high position or you, yourself being put in high regard and receiving some form of benefit or opportunity.

LUNAR ECLIPSE 2020 : WHEN THE ROYALS GET ECLIPSED

LUNAR ECLIPSE (Gemini & Sagittarius Axis)

30 NOVEMBER 2020 AEDT 

November 30th (AEDT) sees the second full moon in a calendar month, often referred too as a blue moon. Blue moons are actually relatively common, more common than most of the large-scale planetary alignments of 2020. 

This Full Moon is also a Lunar eclipse,  opening our eclipse season on the new Gemini / Sagittarius axis which began in Gemini season earlier this year. 

The Lunar eclipse of 30 November, as it’s a penumbral lunar eclipse, only a shadow will hit the moon, rather than the regalia of a total lunar eclipse. However, astrologically and magically, an eclipse is still an eclipse. Although not as visually spectacular as the 26 May 2021 Total Lunar Eclipse, this eclipse still has a bit bite, thanks to the conjunction of 2 of the 4 royal fixed stars.

The Sun conjoins Antares and the full Moon conjoins Aldebaran, for this eclipse, giving it a very volatile and aggressive mars like quality. Both Antares and Aldebaran are out for conquest. As these alignments are on an eclipse axis, there is a blurring or shadowing effect. 

Things are very much not as they seem. Unseen actions and power moves are at play, so drawing down this energy is potentially problematic. This is not a full moon to be playing with, unless you like to bring unexpected power plays into your life. 

Resting and staying hydrated during the actual eclipse is recommended along with keeping a low profile. Eclipse can be blind spots or quickening of events, having Antares and Aldebaran being brought into the mix, gives this eclipse some real fire power. 

Re-entering the eclipse season of 2020, it seems appropriate to have such potent points activated as we begin the wrapping up of 2020.  Watch this space, and be mindful of what you choose to do with this energy. 

Eclipse start 6:32pm     Middle/Max : 8:42pm    End  10:53pm AEDT
