AUGUST ASTROLOGY“People have a hard time letting go of their suffering.
Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar.” ― Thích Nhất Hạnh
So much suffering seems to be part of the human condition right now. As we gaze out across our planet at the wars, famine, misery, death and destruction taking place, it is rather like a gasp of hot air compelling us to slow down and acknowledge its presence, but mostly in a state of disbelief!
However, as an astrologer, I am looking for a greater understanding through the Cosmic movement of planets and rest assured they certainly correlate with current conditions.
I have spoken previously of Saturn's forward movement in Scorpio, which deals with the deepest secrets raising to the surface and that includes those which have harmed others for a very long time. In countries around the world where people have held power whilst maintaining regimes of fear and suffering, the energy of Scorpio is now raising awareness yet again, and always in a bid to shift in some way, all our experiences.
The karmic clearing occurring now is extraordinary. We are all part of this mamoth co-creation of discovery and Jupiter's journey thruogh Leo over the next year, will confirm just exactly what that means to each and every one of us.
The planet Jupiter relates to expansion and in order to do that, we have to make a space within ourselves by refining our conditions and awareness, in order for it to take place. The world requires a vast amount of refinement at the moment and so Jupiter in Leo ensures we get the wakeup call to expand on every creative opportunity. But itt also requires a knowledge of purpose!
Leo represents the heart of the matter therefore events must truly rock the world in order for people to wake up to their divine potential.
Children are always in our hearts, and unfortunately, they seem to be suffering a great deal in certain parts of the world.
Leo represents children and therefore Jupiter expands the mirror of their divine purpose amongst us, to shift our old patterns from war towards peace.
On Saturday 10th we experience the Aquarian Full Moon. This energy relies on the exuberance of the Leo fulfilment as it also aligns with Venus. The power of love has always kept us safe on this planet and I believe it will always do so!
The extraordinary BEINGS OF LIGHT that protect us, know this, but it is a shame that we forget and "take sides" in a World where we are all simply brothers and sisters under the Sun.
Through the sacrifice of so many children, through the love shared by so many broken hearts and the absolute courage of those who work tirelessly to help those in distress may we all find our true direction and connection during this Full Moon.
As Aquarius is the sign of FREEDOM for ALL, when the gates open to a new awareness and higher vibration, Amay that consciousness be shared by the many rather than the few.

As Fire Sign Messengers of love and romance you are all caught in a decisive activity which has perhaps disabled you for anything up to 10 years. But prepare for CHANGE!
Past actions of thoughts before feelings may have kept you going for longer than you may choose to admit!
As intrepid fire signs, we rely on your humour and optimism, especially in a world that seems to have gone mad in its lack of compassion for neighbours and mostly and in regard to religious belief (Jupiter and Sagittarius) and yet you are the ones that can calm things down and make peace arrive quickly, as a magician pulls a rabbit out of a hat!
As Venus and Jupiter conjunct in Leo what glorious times are ahead for you when you stop and think about how much time you have wasted in trying to make something fit which clearly has reached its sell by date. August 17-19 are powerful moments of celebration!
An expansive awareness of personal LOVE and romantic notion causes a chain reaction across the Galaxy and when you really start to feel that tremendous pull from the highest heart strings of your own reality, you will know where to go and be and with whom you wish to share your space and the world shines with you.
GOLD is your colour for AUGUST. No 8 brings messages of freedom!

Words will play a strong part in your Worlds this month, Earth Signs.
You have plenty to say, butt is anybody really listening?
You can place your stamp in your own particular field of knowledge, get people to pay attention, perhaps by playing the marketing game, yet really are you feeling as if you are making a difference?
But don't worry because a year from now so much will have altered and definitely in a good way!
Can I suggest that you take some time out this month for a good rest or holiday and start by meditating on a new plan which supersedes all previously made decisions!
Getting back into your own body by changing diet, taking up exercise and generally moving yourself in some kind of competitive activity will make all the difference. Time to go Vegetarian!
If you are close to the Earth, and by that I mean landlocked, perhaps take a chance on that boating holiday or simply take a ferry to the Isle of Wight. Either way make friends with the sea, beach, canal, pond or bath.
Cleansing in deep water this month will bring all your annoyances to the surface and you will feel a whole lot brighter and clearer for the experience!
ORANGE and GREEN are your colours this month and draw you into something new!
The numbers 11, 22, 33 and 44 may take you on a journey of new discovery!

Personal manifestation, commitment, materialism and release are all friends of the Air signs this month.
Whatever you have stood up for or pushed against is about to be knocked down with a giant hammer, or maybe a small mallet will suffice!
Rudimentary arrangements can be overturned at the last minute as other opportunities for successful completion of plans arrive straight out of the blue!
A daliance or two can also be provided for if required, but love is certainly responsive to all the Air signs in August, as Venus moves through the heart of Leo.
You are going to report the TRUTH in some mysterious way that engages all our senses.
You want to be part of something new, inspiring and different and if the only way to achieve that is through a new kind of placement then go for it. Life just wants you to have fun. Creativity is assured when you release those troublesome burdens!
News of a transfer, new home or sale of property can also arrive very quickly!
Your Colours for August are yellow and pink
You may feel a need to join some kind of spiritually related group
Your power Numbers are 6, 42 and 9

Neptune and Chiron in Pisces
If you have ever been cheated on or you have been the "cheater" then August may return you in some way to this memory, no matter how ancient!
Mars and SATURN in Scorpio are going to push for some old pattern breakers and this can mean the energy of drama and sacrifice knocking at your door.
So often, you are keepers of the wisest and clearest thought transmissions, and as such are needed to help in the rebuilding of territories where so many people have got stuck in their pain!
Chiron and Neptune in Pisces shower you with Cosmic applause and your compassion becomes legendary, yet if you resort to a negative thought or space, held in the past, your opportunity for a fantastic SEPTEMBER can become lost in a sea of emotional chaos. September really is going to show you the NEW, so get ready for feeling good!
Trials and tribulations aside, you have the courage to succeed. Just remember, it is all about making the heart choices NOW and reviewing some seriously unstable decisions that were made in the past.
Your colours are chocolate, cream and raspberry although I must admit they sound more like flavours! mmm Yummy ice cream!
