Astrological Dramas August 3rd-4th

I am writing this on 30th July, 2017,  gazing at some astrological dramas unfolding on Thursday 3rd and Friday 4th August (allow a day either side for world time zone differences). The whole point of astrology is to help us understand what is going on and what it all means. There will be a couple of horoscope messages to take in. We are looking at major change. On a global level we will need to decide if we’re going to go back and rebuild, or start again. The focus here is the top of power. Pluto is in Capricorn, the sign which rules the heads of government, monarchy and big business.

Uranus stands still (stations retrograde) alongside a major Pluto pattern. Uranus rules electrical storms. Pluto rules earthquakes. This will make no sense to rational minds, but again and again, astrology proves to us that wild weather and nature’s patterns, fall in with ancient astrological symbols. There is an increased risk of major electrical storms and earthquakes on, or very close to, August 3rd and 4th 2017.

North Korea

The astrological chart for North Korea will be affected. It is set for 12.00 on 10th September 1948 in P’Yongyang (The Book of World Horoscopes, Nicholas Campion).

North Korea was ‘born’ with Saturn at 28 Leo and on Thursday 3rd August, Uranus stations retrograde at 28 Aries. That’s not the only big change being unleashed. On Friday 4th August Pluto at 17 Capricorn squares Jupiter at 17 Libra and picks up the Sun at 17 Virgo in the North Korea chart. On, or close to, August 3rd and 4th 2017 we will see a sudden shock at the top of government and/or the United Nations which puts North Korea at the centre of deep change.

President Donald Trump

With two competing birth times (one in contradiction to his own mother’s) Trump has historically given no astrologers trustworthy data to work with, when casting a horoscope. We can, however, look at general trends for the American chart. All eyes on Trump Towers. All of them. I will explain why there is a huge emphasis on towers, skyscrapers and high-rise apartments in a moment. The best-known Trump Tower is in New York, of course – but there are others.

The Travel Industry

The Moon is in Sagittarius (the travel industry, airlines, export, tourism) throughout these epic patterns on Thursday and Friday. That gives us another message. Saturn (lessons) is also in Sagittarius so we all need to remember the lessons we learned about travel, foreign people and places – these last few years. Saturn reminds us that no matter how much we think we know – we should never assume. It is always time to go back and check – and check again. There are risks here for the Brexit process, for the America-Russia relationship, for the North Korea-World relationship and more.

Migration and Refugees

The Moon in Sagittarius is also likely to teach us some hard lessons about migration and refugees unless we heed warnings and remember that others have been there before us with tried, tested and trusted experience.

Corporations, Monarchies and Governments

We are going to see the end of several top jobs, or a dramatic change in the balance of power, involving people at the top – close to August 3rd, 4th 2017. This could involve a range of global corporations, monarchies and governments, so we are looking at the CEO, reigning monarch or Prime Minister/President of more than one nation in this wave of change. Uranus rules sudden change. Lighting bolts. Everything happens in a flash. Normally this would not be such a big deal – Uranus standing station retrograde on Thursday 3rd August – but it is followed the next day by the ‘plates shifting’ when Pluto squares Jupiter. The rocks at the top will shake, rattle and roll (below) and we must decide what to do next.

High-Rise Apartments, Skyscrapers

Astrology is a symbolic language. Capricorn is the sign which rules mountains, and Capricorn is the mountain goat. We associate patterns in this sign with ‘mountains’ in big cities – so, towering high-rise apartments, tower blocks, skyscrapers and so on. This is why I think the lightning bolt which affects the White House will be about one of the Trump ‘towers’ as much as it is about his administration. We don’t need a long-standing birth chart at all for Trump to see this play out.

Grenfell Tower was a dreadful tragedy and I watched it, probably as you did, remembering the Twin Towers. Since then questions have been raised around the world about high-rise apartments and tower blocks and their safety – or lack of it. Again, this is deep Capricorn symbolism. The mountain is the tower. As I write this, Australia (where I spend a lot of my time) is undergoing sweeping recommendations about its high-rise housing.

High-Rise Tower Blocks, Skyscraper Centres, Sky-High Apartments and Penthouses

This is going to be a developing story for developers! In fact, once Saturn enters Capricorn in December 2017, we are looking at 2018-2019 transformation of these places, the rules regarding them, and the wisdom or otherwise of making them ‘home’ to so many people. Again, this is astrological symbolism. Capricorn is opposite Cancer. Capricorn rules big business and big government (property developers, politicians and councils) but Cancer rules home town, homeland and above all – home as security and shelter. This is going to be an unforgettable and very hard cycle.


1. Self-interest and narcissism make us blind – we need to tune into other people and stay connected.
2. Old structures are not meant to be there forever – when they change – try to reach out for progress.
3. Don’t assume anything when the astrological weather is this wild – ask, enquire, think, plot and plan.

Hi, holding on to the seat edges kind of time, Jessica. Thank you for the detailed and insightful article. Your writing style and in depth articles are always make for a great read.
Learning a lot about astrology through your writings.

A previous article by you was Brexit was eventually going to be good news for Britain likely in about two years. I agree it had to happen and am still very hopeful but Policy still seems quite muddled. When do you think our government will realise that this not the time for fighting from old scripts and start telling everyone about the new opportunities. North Korea and American agrression also is cause for great concern. A much more frightening scenario for the whole world than even earthquakes amd storms as horrendous as they are. Looking foreard to meeting and hearing… Read more »

It must be hard not to scream this from the rooftops Jessica, your gift can be a burden. Thank you for sharing this information. It’s a heavy time. There are fires burning in our province and the structures of whole communities at risk, especially this weekend with soaring temperatures, if there’s wind it will be a conflagration. Makes me quake inside. Hope for the best, prepare for the worse. Take good care.

Hasn’t Trump got Regulus and Mars on his ascendant at 28/29 degrees? I think it’s possible something is going to happen there and it could be his Icarus moment. Long overdue, might I add. However, he’s pretty well connected to be saved. Was going to ask you the meaning of having Mars at 28 degrees as it’s in my chart on in my Virgo 1st house but, I have found since putting my birth details in here it’s completely reversed my horoscope (have put right time and lats). I know longer know who I am, Jessica, LOL! My… Read more »

Well! Read this article this morning. During the day i read a piece in the UK press about unexpected changes in the top senior staff at the palace. (People who were expected to stay until regime change are announcing they are leaving right now.) This evening’s news: new White House Chief of Staff installed this morning, Scaramucci fired this evening.
Your accuracy is just spooky, possum.
And it’s only Monday.
Pass me the Xanax, please.

Hi Jessica – I find this completely fascinating – and am a bit in awe and now apprehensive- as my sun is at 17 degrees Capricorn and assume this is going to affect me. Weirdly – I had a roofer to look at my roof today and he said the chimney is crumbling – but will fix it probably on Thursday and Friday – I am now anxious that some accident could happen – should I ask him to avoid working on the chimney over this time!

Jessica, what does the North Korea chart look like when placed over Kim Jong Un’s? The thing is, once he’s removed, another will take his place. There must be plenty of spiritually unevolved men in his cabinet to take the reigns because there is no way he, and he alone, put’s the fear into the public/Army/Close circle. He’s obviously backed by his supporters who allow his behavior to run amok. Otherwise, he would have been taken out by now. What is it with these dictatorial men? Half the planet is under dictatorships and always seems to be rooted in misogyny… Read more »

Hi Jessica,

On a personal level I have my MC and IC at 28 Aquarius and Leo, and I have Pluto at 17 Virgo and Uranus at 18 Virgo.

I am starting a new job, should I be concerned?


Hello Jessica. I’ve secretly been put in the mix for a promotion this month. My competitors aren’t big fans of mine so it has the potential to be a volatile month (potentially starting this Friday). With your writings above and my horiscope this week and month I’m worried about all of the factors that seem to be impacting me this month. Do you have any hints for me? Are there days to avoid for interviews etc? Thank you very much.

I am afraid that something was wrong with my comment which I left on 30th of July. If I send them many times, please forgive me
Dear Jessica,

Thank you for this precious article!
Could you please tell me, how this will affect me? I have Pluto 17 Virgo…nothing in Capricorn or Libra or Aries at the degrees you mentioned.
Thanks for your help.

A fascinating article, thank you so much, I really do admire your insight. As a Cancer I am teased relentlessly for my “preparedness” in case of an emergency, earthquake or otherwise. My moon is 28 Sagittarius 11’41, I’m going through a bit of a waiting period in my life and wonder if I should be prepared for a “shake” up???

Hi Jessica,
Thank you for your service. I’m truly learning and appreciating the “as above, so below” theme in life. I’m extremely new to horoscope education. During last mercury retrograde in April, I was in confusion/ mental pain and still somewhat reeling from it. Do you know how my chart will survive this mercury retrograde? And is it a positive outlook with landing a new career opportunity to my satisfaction?

Thanks Jessica

Hope I am second time lucky.

Thank you for this wonderful article.

Jupiter conjuncts Natal Uranus 17 Libra and involve in this Pluto square. What can I expect Jessica?

Thank you kindly

Jessica, my astrology knowledge is increasing weekly, thanks to you! After reading this, as well as the prelude to this week’s personal horoscopes, I’ve a small question: Given that my Libra Sun is @ 2 degs in 7th hse, my Aries Asc @ 8 deg, & my four Capricorn factors in 10th house (including the – I assume? – significant MC) are no where near the 17 & 28 degrees mentioned, can I interpret this to mean my factors won’t be Directly affected? I’ve had pretty much enough change & drama for a while! ;-) Thanks again. Love your site,… Read more »

Hi Jessica,

Reposting here as my last browser doesn’t appear to work. I’m shaky and a little uncertain as To how the drama could unfold for me. I’m travelling for vacation with family and although it’s great to get away it’s a time when we fall out most.


Thanks for a fascinating read as always. As another commenter said, I too am holding on to the edges of my seat. Really hope that this weather will result in a better future, a better system, someday. Happy belated birthday!

Hi Jessica,
Wow once again your predictions were so accurate, to the day! A job I had been waiting to hear about suddenly fell through due to shake-ups behind the scenes, and with Vulcano 27 Aries I got the news on August 3rd! Sounds like things won’t get better for me until December and into 2018? (I have lots of placements in Capricorn too).

Hi Jessica

I going to have the full moon and eclipse ( both) on my natal Venus 7 aug then. August22 Pluto.

I am lost in my life. Trying to start a new teaching career but Australia doesn’t like 61 year old teachers. Try for university. But a lot of rejects. So I am lost how do I earn a wage to pay the basic bills. Do you think this eclipse will shift the out side controls to allow me to transform into a job gain.


Astrology prediction winner! Friday Aug. 4, 2017 Major telecom power outage affects thousands in several provinces of Eastern Canada: cellphones out, landlines intermittent, tv & internet too, and flights delayed. Bravo, Jessica.

Hi Jessica, thanks for the encouragement on how to get through these tough days of August. I am been directly hit ‘hard’ this month, although in saying that since Pluto entered Capricorn years ago, ( I have hated life). Now I do not know who I am or where I am going as in forward in life in all areas. Lost lover, lost income, lost security in money. All the plans I think are right do not unfold. Especially with employment. I am really tied which comes with my age bracket (60) plus any way. Just constantly worried. As a… Read more »

Hi Jessica

Thank you for writing about these specific dates. What just happened? I’ve been in the process of buying the perfect little income/vacation home and then out of nowhere my landlord (of our primary home- a rental) dropped the news he is selling and we’ll have to move. It was the email we almost never saw at the last minute to back out. I had to drop out of the purchase to try to regroup and figure out the best way to proceed. Or did I? What just happened? I’m so lost right now.

My daughter is still not speaking to me due to her fathers alienating behavior. I’m an Aquarius with Scorpio moon and both my daughter and her dad are virgos. I’m trying to keep connection via email and hoping and praying she will understand I’m not a bad person. This is very disheartening to me. I hope something changes but I don’t know what to do.

Earthquake reported in the Highlands of Scotland on 4th August of all places!! We get them but it’s rare.

Hi Jessica!! Life has been a roller coaster the last few years. I feel I am getting a grasp of things and then the ride starts all over again. There is a lot going on with me. * I am paying the last installment on my first house this week. * I have to decide about my mother’s second house, to repair and rent, or sell.(her birthday is March 27, 1942) * My son changed his school to a more inclusive setup and I am hoping for his happiness(sun, venus, jupiter @18, 15 and 26 Leo) *My husband has his… Read more »

Wow Jessica…
One and only Jessica!
Thank you…

What will happen in August in USA…

All my thanks and blessing for our one and only Jessica…
Love you…

Hi Jessica
I live in beautiful Sydney
We are having a sunny beautiful winter..
The news this morning on Trump’s threat to North Korea has left a chill in my heart.
He said he will unleash fury like the worl has never seen.
We, down under, still feel relatively safe, but for how long.
I see these two leaders as a definite threat to humanity not to mention our planet.
Male egos are at play here.!!!
How do we stop these two maniacs from destroying us.
Your thoughts are eagerly awaited.
Best Regards

Do you see world news between USA and North Korea and nuclear weapons…

So scary

This is so fascinating! Specially in the current context of events that are unfolding. Add to that the fact that the Great American Eclipse is just around the corner. Call me freaked out, but I’ve been feeling weirdly jittery about all the goings on. There seems to be a storm brewing somewhere, not just for the world, but personally, I have quite a bit of Leo in my charts, and the eclipse is on my 28 Leo, I think, so everything feels like a knife’s edge now. :(

Dear Jess, great articles on eclipses and I have just finished the book entitled “Murder of a Princess’ which basically points the finger at Charles and the CIA. I have also noticed my own life is heavily influenced by eclipses. I am a Virgo so had my own series the last two years (virgo moon), Scorpio rising, 11/9/1969 pm birth with Leo in Venus. I met my Spanish Ex who is a Leo (Leo moon) in 2012 and I moved to Spain in 2014 before returning in May 2015. All of those significant moves were made on mercury retrogrades, particularly… Read more »

Astrology and the 2017 UK Election

Theresa May and the Conservative Party are 20 points ahead of Labour as I write this on 19th April 2017. That seems to make horoscope predictions pretty irrelevant. But the...
