Horoscopes August 2018
August begins with Mars and Mercury still retrograde–they both go direct later this month (Mercury on the 18th, Mars on the 27th). This lull in the ordinary business as usual forward movement of the energy offers us some time to get our affairs in order, do the inner work, and receive the planetary lessons before we move on. On August 11th (night of August 10th), we’ve got a Partial Solar Eclipse in Leo (New Moon), offering another piece of the eclipse story that began in the winter of 2017, and is now mostly ending, although there will be a postcript (partial eclipse) next winter (2019). By the end of the month, the planets offer some respite, with a beautiful Full Moon in Pisces and a Grand Earth Trine. Together, these create a golden opportunity to make our dreams manifest in the real world.
