August brings the conquering lion, Leo, onto the cosmic pitch heralding a golden and creative summer! Although this is traditionally the holiday month – a time to relax and for re-creation – the Leo new moon on the 2nd kicks off with a glut of goal-getting visions for the new season.
War-like Mars is in deep and meaningful Scorpio all month: on the plus side, giving you all the energy and drive you need to make sweeping changes in your world – nothing superficial satisfies – but on the other hand take care not to turn everybody else’s world upside down! The new moon in Cancer on the 4th highlights new beginnings, change and breakthroughs.
This month promises productivity, abundance and transformation for those intent on turning visions into goals. Dark, deep and distant Pluto, jovial Jupiter and tricky Mercury – the planet associated with trading ideas, contracts and commerce – start the month in powerful alignment with each other. The footballers’ planet, Mars, usually so full of action, takes a vacation and lounges on the beach until the end of the month.
