Aries: August 2016

Indie Aries
What you experimented with in June or July was the first step in a long walk to freedom. Where do you find your freedom? Through matters of image, reputation, title, personal appearance, branding and profile. You take it further (or the process takes you further) in September but the real deal starts now. Does this serve you? Yes, Jupiter the planet of opportunity and solutions, aligns with Uranus, the planet of independence? Is it a wild ride? Yes. It ends in April 2017 after which time you will never go back to who/what you habitually adopted, in terms of Me!

Your Lifestyle, Workload and Physical Condition
Aries, move as quickly as possible to snap up opportunities to improve your lifestyle and get more from your daily workload. There is also a stunning solution for your mind, body and spirit connection which can only occur every 12 years. Add all this together and you can view the first nine days of August as an unmissable chance to turn the tiny details of your daily life around. August 4th, 5th, 6th are dates to watch.

If you proceed after August 10th your good fortune or astonishing win-win solutions will remain, yet you will hit delays or changes until at least September 9th. One example of this might be a discount offer for the local health club which gets lost in the post, or a job offer which involves protracted negotiation.

Try not to pursue anything brand new after September 9th as not only is your natural Jupiter luck and protection factor gone from that date, you would be commencing something new with work, unpaid work, housework, university or your body on a flakey cycle. Mercury is well and truly retrograde from that point so the usual state of flux applies. If you have no choice, go ahead but have Plan B and a little preparation.

The Worldwide Web, Travel, Education
Your ruling planet Mars is now heavily accenting the worldwide web, travel, moving, religion, education, academia, publishing and all the regional or foreign differences involved. Take your time in August and take good advice, Aries. There are some aspects of life which you cannot change. They are unavoidable, and have been in motion for a long time and are probably out of your control. However – there are smart ways to handle this cycle, so that you minimise who or what you are taking on board.  Why add to something which is already so heavy or hard for you? This is particularly important near Saturday 13th August (Saturn stations), Monday 22nd, Wednesday 24th, Tuesday 30th.  The reason caution is a smart idea is simple – this cycle hangs around for a long time and you really don’t want to be burdening yourself in 2017. Do what you have to, no matter if this is about a website, holiday, relocation, foreign connection, or some other big-picture concern.

ECLIPSE MEMO
Important! An eclipse always conceals, not reveals. Something important is being covered up, or the full picture cannot be known, on Thursday 18th August. Allow a day either side for the world to catch up with itself. On that day the Sun in Leo is opposite the Moon in Aquarius. When it comes to the children, teenagers or serious lovers in your world – be aware. When it comes to your group involvements and friendships – be aware.

taurus

Taurus: August 2016

Money, Property, Business, Charity
Timing is everything in August and you may need to pay special attention to the facts and figures tied up with your bank account, company, income, house, apartment, possessions or good cause – with one eye on the calendar. Why? Because decisions made now affect 2017 and you do not want to be lumbered with more than is strictly necessary. What you are dealing with near Saturday 13th August, Monday 22nd, Wednesday 24th, Tuesday 30th is absolute reality. It’s the unavoidable facts of life, yet you can make life easier for yourself by not complicating your financial world any more. Saturn is not a ‘fated’ cycle for your security and lifestyle. It is about destiny and that means choosing to turn in the opposite direction if something (or someone) seems like a hard ask.

Group and Friendship Boundaries
This is your regular reminder that unless you contain and control those lines that separate friendship from other issues, and the group as a whole, you are likely to feel all at sea this month. Rather than floundering, you may want to drop anchor, find a light house and then contain and control what is going on with your friend, or the tribe as a whole.

Babies, Children, Young Adults, Lovers

Do all you can to speed up discussions or paperwork involving pregnancy, babies, schoolchildren, younger relatives or godchildren, teenagers and your paid or unpaid efforts with the young. This also applies to lovers who could bring that generation closer to you one day. The more you can wrap up by August 10th the better as the opportunity or solution is best served by some fast talking or quick paper signatures. If you have to move after the 10th, you will find the situation is in a state of flux in the first week of September, yet still benefits you – despite the changes or delays. One example of this would be a contract for a children’s book which goes back and forth for a while. After 10th September, though, your life will well and truly have moved on, in terms of potential growth and dazzling answers – so try to push things along.

ECLIPSE MEMO
Important! An eclipse always conceals, not reveals. Something important is being covered up, or the full picture cannot be known, on Thursday 18th August. Allow a day either side for the world to catch up with itself. On that day the Sun in Leo is opposite the Moon in Aquarius. When it comes to your house, apartment, family, town, country, household – be aware. When it comes to your career, unpaid work, university degree or full-time parenting role – be aware.

gemini

Gemini: August 2016

Friends and Groups
It is through friends and groups that you win independence or find freedom, now through April 2017. What you experimented with in June or July was the start. Now, you retrace your steps with these friendships, clubs, teams and ensemble casts of fellow travellers. Together you can pursue genuine autonomy (or maybe alone, if you need to separate yourself from these people in order to feel liberated).

Your Family, House, Apartment or Household
Gemini, you have already been thrown two mighty opportunities to improve your living space, property interests, family, household or home town situation since 2015. Now, the cycle is going out with a big finish. So should you. Snap up the opportunities or solutions before your ruler Mercury goes Retrograde Shadow from August 10th. From that date, you will still see stunning chances to upgrade, improve, advance or expand (or maybe just repair), yet you may be on a loop until September 10th, or hit delays and rewinds. After that date this Jupiter cycle is well and truly over, so let’s hope you took full advantage of the chances you were given to move, renovate, invest in property, reshuffle the household, pursue stunning family priorities and more. By the ‘more’ I mean the exploration of your town and country (to your total advantage). Run don’t walk, Gemini, this is a limited opportunity and after August it will not be back for another 12 years.

Your Former, Current or Potential Partner
Slow down, regarding this person. (If an enemy, rival or opponent is a bigger deal, skip this message and go to the next one, below). You need to think about the future very carefully where your former, current or potential partner is concerned, especially near the Mars-Saturn conjunction on Wednesday 24th August. Allow a day or two either side of this historic event. Saturn is hard karma. You have enough to deal with. Do not create any more. The issue will either be the particular chemistry you two have, and the nature of the alchemy between you – or this key person’s situation and circumstances. Expertise and experience are there to lean on. Go at your own pace. Astrology is there to be used, to be proactive. Why add another load, psychologically, emotionally or perhaps sexually, if you already have enough to carry?

Enemies, Rivals or Opponents

If your issue is a feud, lawsuit, or extended period of Fear and Loathing, I can fully understand. You only get Saturn in your Seventh House of opponents once every 29 years. Be really smart about this. Very close to these dates, you need to be sharply aware that you are setting up 2017 and this is not just an August issue: Saturday 13th August (Saturn stations), Monday 22nd, Wednesday 24th, Tuesday 30th.  Gemini, it would be all too easy to buy into a new situation which you frankly do not need. Your common sense will tell you the rest. Deal with what you cannot avoid (or whom you cannot avoid) and go to people or organisations you trust to help you. Proceed slowly and thoughtfully and on your own time frame.

ECLIPSE MEMO
Important! An eclipse always conceals, not reveals. Something important is being covered up, or the full picture cannot be known, on Thursday 18th August. Allow a day either side for the world to catch up with itself. On that day the Sun in Leo is opposite the Moon in Aquarius. This is about the internet, multimedia, publishing, education, travel, foreign places and people, transport, academia and religion. That is a long list, but if one issue jumps out at you, know that it will be partly obscured.

cancer

Cancer: August 2016

Your Workload and Your Body
Every 29 years Saturn triggers a work cycle which tests you out. This applies to paid work, housework, unpaid work or university life. You can help yourself enormously in August by keeping things as simple and uncomplicated as possible. Saturn is actually easily avoided. There is no inescapable fate. You just turn on your radar, see what/who is coming towards you near Saturday 13th August (Saturn stations), Monday 22nd, Wednesday 24th, Tuesday 30th and sidestep the choice. You really do have full freedom of choice about this and at a certain point you have to dismiss the notion that every big burden in life automatically becomes yours. This is true of chores at home as well as major corporate or government tasks which some Cancerians have.

Your body and physical condition is woven into this story in a major way. In fact you cannot separate your work ethic in August from your physical state and constitution. One defines the other. With Mars and Saturn here, you have to deal with the reality – nothing more, nothing less. Be practical about this and seek the best pro advice you can. The body, mind and spirit connection has seldom been as obvious to you as it is in August 2016. Turn to people who are experienced with your exact issues and to the most tried, trusted and tested professionals. It’s a good investment in 2017 as well. Your body is your machine and it houses your soul.

In tandem with this, Uranus Retrograde in your zone of ambition, success, achievement and social mountaineering is going to ensure independence from people, organiations, situations and set-ups which hold you back. What you did in June was just the start. Independence Day becomes Independence Year, now through April 2017 and September sees that process intensifying. Embrace space, freedom and liberty, because they want to embrace you. Rejection may be part of the story which is perfectly normal. Cancer, if you were born in the Sixties with Uranus and/or Pluto in Virgo - or you know for a fact you have Virgo chart factors - August is the most crucial month of the year for work decisions!

Sidestepping the Shambles with Publishing, Worldwide Web, Travel, Foreign People and Places, Academia

You have been through enough chaos and confusion with the above areas of your life since Neptune entered Pisces, to know what happens when you do not contain or control the boundaries. Pay particular attention to passport/visa rules, import/export regulations, and so on. There are two reasons for this. One is Neptune, the planet which can leave you feeling all at sea, drifting or 'over your head' - the other one is that the entire world is going through the same cycle, but in a different way. Right across the planet in August and September we are going to see one of the heaviest reality checks about all the above issues in 29 years. All the more reason to be wide awake, fully aware and completely updated. This is not your cue for paranoia. This is your cue to look at what you are doing with the trip, move, book, website, course, thesis, degree, export/import - and really figure out how to rein it all in, clarify it and ring-fence it so that life is nice and clear.

The Internet, Multimedia, Publishing
This is your last chance to milk the Jupiter in Virgo transit which will not be back for 12 years. By now you should have snapped up one or two opportunities to expand your life online, with multimedia, in publishing or through other forms of communication, like public speaking, songwriting, signing and so on. You were given these in 2015 or early 2016 so I hope you took them. Even if you let glaringly obvious chances (or amazing contacts) pass you by, there is still time to jump on a very special piece of technology, idea, concept or project by August 10th. If you leave it too late it will still reward you, but it will show stop-start progress until September 10th. After that date, if you start anything new, you will meet the classic flux of Mercury Retrograde so you may prefer to accelerate everything about your communication with the world in the first nine days of August.

ECLIPSE MEMO
Important! An eclipse always conceals, not reveals. Something important is being covered up, or the full picture cannot be known, on Thursday 18th August. Allow a day either side for the world to catch up with itself. On that day the Sun in Leo is opposite the Moon in Aquarius, you will see an incomplete or shadowy story about your money, house, business, apartment, charity or possessions. You are ruled by the Moon, Cancer so you are more affected.

leo

Leo: August 2016

Indie Leo
Travel, publishing, foreigners, religion, education, emigration, worldwide web and academia are all ruled by Aries in your chart. This is a lone wolf (or lone ram) sign and now that Uranus, the the planet of independence, is racing through – it is time to go all the way. What you began in June was just the start. Now through April 2017 it’s a whole new world and you will never go back. The buzz words now are - groundbreaking, trailblazing, liberating. Uranus Retrograde sends a clear signal that now through Easter next year, you complete the next logical step in a revolution that began many years ago.

Your Money, Apartment, House, Business
You have until September 9th to snap up opportunities to make or save money, or enjoy solutions which will help you so much with your mortgage, rent, investment, income or company.

Do all you can before August 10th to avoid delays and changes with the paperwork or discussion. If everything continues beyond that date, it will proceed as follows, thanks to the Mercury Retrograde cycle! Conditions near Friday 5th August are excellent as Mercury conjuncts Minerva, the asteroid we associate with wisdom, brilliance and solutions near that date.

Negotiating or signing August 10th-30th, you will see the situation stuck and replayed, from August 31st through September 9th, to your advantage. This is the only Mercury Retrograde cycle this year, which you benefit from. It is still frustrating though so be aware.

After that date, Jupiter’s benefits vanish and you will be left with the ghost of transactions or negotiations past, left over from the second half of August. You may be dealing with a state of flux regarding these, as late as Friday October 7th so be aware of that. If you are curious about Mercury Retrograde hit ‘Search’ on this website to find out more, or pick up my new ebook (free) 2020 Astrology, which has a whole section on Mercury Retrograde. Don’t be fooled. The impact begins a lot sooner and lasts a lot longer than a lot of people assume.

One more word – boundaries. It’s actually your magic word. When it comes to the money, house, business, apartment, possessions or charity, the time has come to contain and control what is going on, or just make a second attempt at it. Neptune and Chiron can create shambles, as you know from previous cycles last year, and perhaps in 2013/2014. If you feel in over your head that is a sure sign you need to pull the whole thing in. You are hugely protected by benevolent Jupiter now through September 10th but try to keep it real anyway. Build a moat, and a drawbridge.

Children, Young Adults, Serious Lovers
From Tuesday 2nd August, you need to handle pregnancy, IVF, sons, daughters, godchildren, young relatives, adoption and so on, with tremendous care and caution. This also includes serious lovers, who could make you a parent, step-parent, aunt, uncle or co-godparent if things became committed between you. Your paid or unpaid efforts with/for children or younger adults are also of deep concern.

Take your time. Take good advice. Seek experience. Seek expertise. Leo, you have known for weeks that some issues cannot be avoided, where these younger faces in your world are concerned (or these serious relationships). However, you can either navigate steadily, or complicate your life – near the key dates Saturday 13th August (Saturn stations), Monday 22nd, Wednesday 24th, Tuesday 30th.  The choice is yours and astrology is there to help you strategise. Why dig yourself a hole you do not need in 2017? Try to deal with what is there and keep things simple and manageable. You are having a Saturn cycle when anything you create for yourself could be quite hard work next year, so be sharply aware of the long-term impact and try to be a total realist. If you’re okay with the demands of the situation, that’s fine, but this situation with a much younger generation (or the lovers who take you there) is pretty weighty.

ECLIPSE MEMO
Important! An eclipse always conceals, not reveals. Something important is being covered up, or the full picture cannot be known, on Thursday 18th August. Allow a day either side for the world to catch up with itself. On that day the Sun in Leo is opposite the Moon in Aquarius. When it comes to your image, reputation, personal appearance – be aware. When it comes to your former, current or potential partner – be aware. When it comes to your enemies, rivals or opponents – be aware.

virgo

Virgo: August 2016

Kerching! The Long Independence Day - August 2016 to April 2017

June and July were rehearsals for Independence Day with your cash, house, apartment, business, charity or possessions. August-April 2017 is the real thing. It will take a long time to sort this out but you did not go far enough and there is further to go. Embrace what offers you liberty and liberation as the time has finally come. You can hit Search on this website  if it's ringing big bells for you. From October you make a big, new beginning with your money, property, home, company or ownership which has not been possible in 12 years. By 2017 you will be in a brilliant new position. August is the moment you realise you can also be free. The phrase 'free from' and also the phrase 'free to' strongly apply now.

It’s All About You – And Why Not?
Virgo, with your ruler Mercury conjunct Minerva in Virgo, on Friday 5th August, you are in the best position in years to figure out your profile, title, image, wardrobe, photographs, video and the rest. Whatever is necessary at the moment to remove old concerns or take you somewhere better, is now unfolding. It may be a popularity vote you had not expected. It may be an offer or opportunity, ready to roll by September (try to get this in place by the 10th if you can to avoid stop-start progress later). If you have a lot of Virgo factors in your personal chart, August is about a major work opportunity and simultaneous chance to sort out your health, fitness and wellbeing – which obviously leaves you looking good. Even with only one factor in Virgo (your Sun) you should still be pretty happy with the way your Me Agenda rolls. Near Monday 15th August someone who is crucial to this story makes the issue a two-way street.

Former, Current, Potential Partners

This is the laboratory of life and the experiment is ongoing. You are either dealing with a maverick, here, or the person you knew so well, for such a long time, has started seeing what he/she can get away with. All of this is more obvious near Friday 12th August at the Jupiter-Chiron opposition. Chiron turns up whenever the chemistry you have with this man (or woman) becomes a Great Unknown, as opposed to a formula you find familiar. This, combined with another clash near Friday 19th, suggests a couple of weekends when stepping back from him (or her) and finding space to think, might be a good idea. One of the other issues is boundaries, which never really goes away, but it is something you can also address. It will take time to figure out just how much the formula changed in the life lab, but it’s worth figuring out. Just remember it may change again.

Enemies, Opponents, Rivals
Virgo, if your emotions are fixed on someone against you, then you must also engage in fancy footwork in August. Ducking and diving around this person (or people) is a good idea, as you are about to see jaw-dropping examples of what someone thinks he/she can get away with. It will be interesting to see if this is actually the case! The Jupiter-Chiron clash near the 12th and the Neptune-Venus clash a few days later, suggests that someone, here, is moving the goalposts. Not knowing where you stand and not having a leg to stand on, are a sure sign that you need to tread water with this person until you can get your footing again. Be very firm about where the lines must be drawn, once you get your bearings again. If someone new turns up this month and your antennae are switched on, because he/she may not necessarily have your interests at heart – put down every moat and drawbridge you have.

Your House, Flat, Family, Household, Town
This is a very good month to slow down and cool down as you will thank yourself later, for not setting up situations with your home or family, flatmates or town/country, that never really go away. In other words, the ripple effect of what you do and say could carry into 2017 so be aware of that. Near Saturday 13th August when Saturn stations, the point will be hammered home. This is fine, and it’s normal on this cycle. Awareness is everything, so why walk into something (or get in any deeper) if your common sense tells you that there you may end up lumbered, later. Near 24th August in particular, you may want to be particularly cautious about leases, flatmate arrangements, family reunions, property purchases, renovations and so on. Ditto, battles with council or government. There are much easier times this year to plunge in, and you may want to seek expertise or experience to find out if you should be plunging in at all.

ECLIPSE MEMO
Important! An eclipse always conceals, not reveals. Something important is being covered up, or the full picture cannot be known, on Thursday 18th August. Allow a day either side for the world to catch up with itself. On that day the Sun in Leo is opposite the Moon in Aquarius. When it comes to your secrets, your role behind the scenes, your paid work, unpaid work – and even your body – allow for the fact that the jigsaw puzzle may be incomplete and in shadow.

libra

Libra: August 2016

Your Invisible Life Benefits You - And How!
The discussion, paper trails or news puts the focus squarely on what you hide, cover up, do in seclusion or firmly behind the scenes, near Friday 5th, Monday 8th of August. Try to get things wrapped up by the 9th, but if that is impossible, bank on delays and changes until the second week of September. You still stand to gain from benefits or solutions, yet the sooner you can complete your plan the better. Even if the 11th-13th brings you an opportunity you cannot refuse or a grand answer to a major question, you should still allow wheels to spin backwards and forwards next month. Libra, all this invisibility, mystery or hidden content in your life now has a second purpose. It allows you to well and truly farewell 2016, and welcome 2017, which for you begins with a relaunch timed for September-October, with more fabulous results for your brand, appearance, title, profile and packaging next year.

The Internet, Multimedia, Publishing
There are some great, big, unavoidable facts of life now staring you in the face, where the internet is concerned. This extends to your computer, telephone, multimedia, publishing, education or other communication concerns. Strategy is all. Don’t dig a hole for yourself in August and September as you will have to sit in the hole until Christmas 2017. Lean on expertise and experience and be a total realist about the project, plan, the medium itself, the people or the organisation. Err on the side of gentle cynicism if you have to; it’s better to entertain an outcome you don’t want, even if it never happens. A little cautious pessimism can be helpful on a Saturn transit especially when you have Mars turning up the heat. Watch what goes in writing, especially on the ‘forever’ internet. Just be aware.

Freedom and Independence
Life with your former, current or potential partner is showing you how to be free. This also applies to enemies, rivals or opponents. Liberation is a thrilling feeling, not often felt, yet you have access to that unchained, unleashed world – if you are prepared to do the work with/about/for this person. Independence Day began in June and yet it was not the real thing. The real thing starts now through April next year and you will go back and forth with the process - yet end up being completely unchained from situations or people which you (perhaps) are not fully aware, kept you confined for an awfully long time.

Keeping it Real
To keep it real every day, with your housework, paid work and unpaid work, you need to put the boundaries back in, if they dissolve, or consider installing boundaries for the first time. This may be about the clock and calendar. It may be about personal boundaries and the lines people cross with each other. On a more serious note, if there are issues about prescribed drugs, alcohol or illegal drugs affecting your grasp of where the line in the sand actually is, it may be time to look at that. Neptune is at large in your chart in August.

ECLIPSE MEMO
Important! An eclipse always conceals, not reveals. Something important is being covered up, or the full picture cannot be known, on Thursday 18th August. Allow a day either side for the world to catch up with itself. On that day the Sun in Leo is opposite the Moon in Aquarius. Look at issues like friends, groups, babies, children, young adults - and allow for the fact that the jigsaw puzzle may be incomplete and in shadow.

scorpio

Scorpio: August 2016

Fresh Chapter for your CV
There is a fresh chapter for your Curriculum Vitae on Tuesday 2nd August – allow a day either side. If you have Leo personal chart factors, this fresh chapter may involve the world of babies, children or young adults. If you are a full time parent, perhaps this is your job – and early August begins the new story for you. In most cases, though, this is about your career or university degree, and it’s a nice, simple New Moon with a nice, simple message – just start. There is a longer background story here, about liberation. Is that too strong a word? There is something or someone still chaining you to the past, where your workload, body, housework, unpaid work, drugs, doctor, food, drink, fitness or healer is concerned. Cherrypick that list. What you trialled in June was not the finished story. That comes, now through Easter 2017. You will be free, in the end.

Friends are Golden
Friends are golden. Groups are platinum. Pursue both and you have everything you have earned, in terms of time, energy, faith and goodwill – but with added bonuses from an abundant cycle. This happens on paper, online or through a crucial discussion in the first nine days of August. If you are asked to join a new group, do it. If you find yourself swept up in social media, people power, community efforts, group goals, tribal thinking – it’s time to act. Do this before the 10th if you can as you hit delays, changes after that. You only get one Jupiter cycle of opportunity and problem-solving like this, every 12 years. A friendship is a passport to so much. You have one friend in particular who opens doors like Santa Claus. Walk through.

Radical Lifestyle Change
Persist with radical lifestyle change, and think about a more independent way to work, live, eat, sleep and exercise. Actually, you can’t avoid this. Given what went down in June, between now and April 2017 you have to pursue proper freedom, all the way down the line, and ask yourself why you didn’t ditch particular set-ups, attitudes, habitual expectations or routines a long time ago. Change is somewhat hard to take or create, yet it is seeking you out. This works. It's a long, slow, revolution which will happen in fits and starts, but ultimately you will open your Easter Eggs next year and wonder why on earth you didn't liberate yourself before, Scorpio.

Financial Realities
It’s heavy and it’s all too real. What you now know about your money, house, business, apartment, possessions, charity or taxes is somewhat inevitable. Are you really so surprised? Things have momentum and now you must deal. The answer lies in a strategy that leans hard on the expertise or experience of people or organisations which are tried, tested and trusted. Running away from this, or even complicating your life by choosing unwise options, is going to tie you up until 2017 as this is a long, slow Saturn cycle. None of that is necessary. In fact, you can be highly strategic over the next eight weeks. Avoid who or what rings alarm bells, even very faintly.

ECLIPSE MEMO
Important! An eclipse always conceals, not reveals. Something important is being covered up, or the full picture cannot be known, on Thursday 18th August. Allow a day either side for the world to catch up with itself. On that day the Sun in Leo is opposite the Moon in Aquarius. When it comes to your career, university degree, unpaid work, full-time parenting, house, apartment, family, household, town, country – allow for the fact that the jigsaw puzzle may be incomplete and in shadow.

sagittarius

Sagittarius: August 2016

Your Me Agenda
Your Me Agenda (title, role, name, face, shape, style, profile, packaging) is suddenly a lot more serious these days. Take your time and take good advice. You need to bear in mind that Saturn, behind this cycle, hangs around until Christmas 2017 so August choices have 2017 outcomes. It would be so easy to commit yourself to someone/something which is bound to have a heavy long-term impact on the way you appear and the way you are seen. Think it over really carefully before you commit. One example would be weight loss or cosmetic surgery. Another would be a particular kind of YouTube appearance. Be a total realist and if this means being faintly cynical about outcomes, that's better than being Pollyanna about it. Saturn is serious!

Your Trip, Move, Course, Website, Book
You will make a fresh start, not possible in months, with your trip, move, course, website or book by the 7th of August. If you are less ambitious than that, the trip will be a classic ‘head trip’ or intellectual journey – and you won’t have to leave your armchair. It’s time for a knowledge exchange.

Ambition, Mission, Position, Fruition
You don’t often have a chance like this to ask the questions that could secure success. Your status points or achievements will reflect what you put in over the last 11 months, so Jupiter cannot work miracles – however, if you paid your dues, you are on your way, with that hot job, promotion, award or outstanding result confirmed by September. You will also be thrown a new chance for very quick micro success, if you engage with the person or organisation in the first nine days of August and wrap it up in that time. It won’t return to you so don’t hang around. If you were born in the Sixties you can double that message. You have Uranus or Pluto in Virgo and you are about to see a major turnaround in the way you live and work.

Boundaries, Boundaries, Boundaries
The situation with your house, family, apartment, town, country, household (people and place) is random in August. If you let boundaries slide, put them back in – and if they were never there, maybe it’s time. This is especially true near the 12th August when you realise that someone keeps moving the goalposts, or ‘something’ continually challenges you to pin down what is possible/impossible/acceptable/unacceptable. Only you can nail it all down, Sagittarius, and August is worth your time.

Space the Final Frontier
What happened in June and July was a dress rehearsal for a new, long stint of independence, which begins now and lasts until April 2017. You did not go far enough in your quest for space. Children, babies or young adults (the next generation) were at the heart of this. Maybe a lover was too. You are right to trust in the revolution, and the trick with this cycle is to pursue it as kindly as possible – or to accept it with understanding. Uranus is now in his final stretch and this is the last break with the past. Your old set-ups and systems involving parenthood, substitute parenthood, godchildren, youth – and sexual relationships – just do not belong in the future and this month is a step on that path. Freedom, space and independence are your rewards. More oxygen in the room, more oxygen in your life. It is very true of the typical Uranus transit that it takes a rejection (of you, or from you) before you realise just how crazily confined you actually were, in all the years before.

ECLIPSE MEMO
Important! An eclipse always conceals, not reveals. Something important is being covered up, or the full picture cannot be known, on Thursday 18th August. Allow a day either side for the world to catch up with itself. On that day the Sun in Leo is opposite the Moon in Aquarius. For you, the focus will be travel, foreign people and places, academia, publishing, the web, short journeys, multimedia and connections, of all kinds.

capricorn

Capricorn: August 2016

Independence Day on Rewind at Home
Your town, country, household, family, apartment and/or house is at the heart of a rewind, now through April 2017. You may have thought you were free – or making a break for a more independent existence – in June. Not the case! It was an amazing start but the Uranus Retro cycle promises, now through Easter next year, you will be a long, slow road to genuine autonomy and space. Room to move is worth what you go through, which will be a rather topsy-turvy trail with a relative, flatmate, the council, government, a builder, landlord and so on. Ultimately you need to shed the past which is increasingly looking like a museum piece. June's shockwaves have subsided, which always happens right after a major Uranus pattern in the heavens. Now, however, you will become aware that the process has not even begun. It's perfectly fine. When the known world flips, flip with it. Live for the moment, adjust, adapt and pursue freedom (sweet freedom). Next Easter you will be stunned at how restricted you actually were, all those years before.

Your New Financial Chapter
The new money, property, business or charity chapter falls into place near the 2nd August, although it will be on the line, or trigger a second decision (also on the line) at the eclipse (please see the Eclipse Memo at the end of your forecast).

Broad Horizons, Big Picture
You are blessed by opportunities and solutions not possible in 12 years, in terms of you travelling, teaching, studying, publishing or following your beliefs – whatever they are. What you want will come in direct proportion to the effort you put in over the last 11 months. You can also start something new, in the first week, which is in the can by the 9th. Beyond that date it drags or changes direction. It still benefits you, and the trip or head trip will reward you – yet it could be stop-start until September 10th when this long cycle ends. You are one of a handful of people who are gaining from the tremendous changes affecting the global travel industry; immigration; religion; publishing; education; academia;export; import. Just step on the accelerator and get this done as quickly as possible, though. The world is a heavy, sombre and serious place in 2016 and 2017 yet you can gain uniquely as you are the right person, in the right place, at the right time in August 2016. Capricorn, should this segue naturally into your career, university degree, unpaid work or full-time parenting role, then you are already on your way to the biggest and best, as success is assured from September, with a fresh start in October and rewards in 2017. You only get one Jupiter transit like this every 12 years and this one is dazzling with its solutions and opportunities.

Internet, Multimedia, Telephone
You need to put in boundaries or get them back with your internet, multimedia, telephone or other communication priorities. You are standing on shifting sands again, according to your chart and on several occasions this month it would be useful to try and nail down some gates and fences in what is essentially a drifting patch of sand. Doing this regularly keeps life simple. Data mining and hacking are obvious culprits - so is phishing - and the general lack of boundaries out there online.

Saturn, Capricorn’s Ruling Planet at Large
Saturn, your ruler, tells you that whatever you cover up and hide, even from yourself, could have serious consequences by 2017. Try to be more aware of what you are doing, and spot your own sneakiness or subterfuge as Saturn can be a very hard teacher. In other cases you may have just found that a role behind the scenes or a deeply private secret just became a bigger load to carry. This is normal on this cycle but do not add to your load. Dodge, duck and dive if your wisdom tells you that something/someone new would be a massive ask. The Twelfth House of your chart rules (deep breath) the unconscious mind. The astral body. The etheric body. Dreams. The chakra system. The aura. Classified information which is buried in the unconscious mind. Confidential concerns which are below the surface. Astral travel. The spirit. The soul. We also associate this zone with operating behind the scenes, with no recognition or acknowledgement, while others are the name or face. I don't know what life choices you are making Capricorn, but anything on that list now is intensely serious, requires a lot of thought, tremendous caution and far more time - perhaps - before you react in the moment. You will answer for August and September in 2017 so keep life simple by following the usual Saturn rules. Strategy, strategy, strategy.

ECLIPSE MEMO
Important! An eclipse always conceals, not reveals. Something important is being covered up, or the full picture cannot be known, on Thursday 18th August. Allow a day either side for the world to catch up with itself. On that day the Sun in Leo is opposite the Moon in Aquarius. For you, the focus will be taxation, your bank account, your company, shares, business, rent, mortgage, charity or possessions.

aquarius

Aquarius: August 2016

Fresh Start With Him (or Her)
Close to Tuesday 2nd August we see a New Moon which will take your chemistry with him (or her) in a new direction – thus putting the relationship on a different path until 2017. This is a forever moment, not only about August. This applies to former, current or potential partners and it is your best chance this year to start afresh, no matter how long you have been together or apart. Just bear in mind the eclipse (see the end of this forecast).

Enemies, Rivals, Opponents
If your great rivals in some kind of Cold War (or battle) are your priority, you will find things come to a head in August, and by the end of the first week, the action turns in a new direction. Be sharply aware of the eclipse to come (see the end of your prediction) as there will be concealment or a cover-up job. Alternatively for purely fated reasons, what you need to know will be patchy or obscured.

Money, Money, Money
Do all you can to snap up offers, opportunities and solutions by the 9th. After that date, you are still golden, but you will be on a stop-start mission as the paper trail, discussion or news changes shape, gets stuck or even reverses by September 10th. This is about the money, house, possessions, charity, business apartment or cash in kind. Try to keep it real as much as possible. Boundaries are slipping and sliding all over the place, despite the abundant flow and unless you want to feel all at sea you’ll need an anchor, nets, a light house, ropes, signs and a clock. This is your biggest and best financial increase/savings cycle in 12 years so hopefully you have been using your astrological timing since last year and are now in a position to scoop up the rewards. This chance will not come again – but do watch those boundaries.

Your Way With Words, Images, Ideas
In June you had a little rejection dance involving the world of books, publishing, the internet, multimedia or other avenues for your communication. The rejection dance becomes a big disco from August and by April 2017 who/what you push away, also distances itself from you. This is great because it sets you free. In fact, there are dividends to be had, especially near the Jupiter-Uranus patterns of August. There is no substitute for being able to do what you want, when you want, as you wish – and people who identify with the new path you are taking will find you. The rest are probably dinosaurs or not relevant to your future, at the very least. How do you know when you're doing this cycle right? When you're buzzing or slightly wired. The end result (the project) by Easter next year will contain the essence of what you are destined to feel - total freedom.

Friends and Groups
You have known about a pretty serious situation for months but it gathers speed in August. Stuff just got real. You now have to look at strategies, because although there is undeniable responsibility with/for the friends in question, or the particular circle, you also have to weigh up the cost. Get in too deep and you may have difficulty getting out again. This strongly applies to August and September as the Mars and Saturn cycles weigh in. Astrology is about destiny - wrangling fate - being aware of who/what to sidestep or minimise. One classic example would be joining a political party in August and then realising just how heavily you are being loaded with moral or practical responsibility, as a result. There are many more. Being part of a hit TV show with an ensemble cast with frenemies as well as genuine chums is another one - think before signing the deal.

ECLIPSE MEMO
Important! An eclipse always conceals, not reveals. Something important is being covered up, or the full picture cannot be known, on Thursday 18th August. Allow a day either side for the world to catch up with itself. On that day the Sun in Leo is opposite the Moon in Aquarius. For you, the focus will be former, current or potential partners. Enemies, rivals or opponents. Your title. Your reputation. Your face or name.

pisces

Pisces: August 2016

The Man (or Woman) In Question
You are now in a great position to make a move on someone you have wanted for a long time, or who has obviously wanted you. Miss this opportunity to talk or e-mail, and it will not return on this huge scale for a very long time to come. If you continue the discussion or paper trail beyond the 9th it may go back and forth in September too. Be aware of that.

If you need to separate, divorce or get counselling you are in a fantastic cycle for that level of change. Again, try to do it before the 9th or at least allow for there to be rescheduling, delays or stop-start progress from that date. From 10th September, though, your basic protection and good fortune with this person is no longer around, so time is of the essence.

If you want someone new, start looking in haste, as there are some incredible options around for you this first week of August and into the start of the second week. Jupiter opens doors.

Happy couples who want to go further will welcome a trip, business, child, apartment, home or other couples’ plan which seems blessed by ideal timing. Quite true.

This is worth repeating. No matter which kind of Piscean you are, bear in mind that Mercury Retrograde Shadow from 10th August means the process will go back and forth until September. It is still to your total advantage in all cases but there will be waiting games, rescheduling, alterations and changed talking points.  If you can possibly nail this by the 9th, go for it. Mercury is behaving normally, Jupiter the planet of solutions and opportunity is on your side and historically, this is one of the most promising and rewarding periods for partnership or 'the fight' in over a decade.

Work and Career
The New Moon near the 2nd suggests a new beginning with your daily workload. Bigger questions about success, achievement, status and ambition are tough, though – and all too real. Given that you cannot change what is happening, you have to be strategic. Be really aware of the possibility that you might take on someone or something that may be a burden to you this month. What you create on your C.V. now through September has to be catered for, and answered for, next year. Seek expertise and experience before you do anything dramatic which would affect your role or calling in life, no matter if you are a full-time parent, career achiever or in full-time work - or study. Pisceans are psychic. Read hearts and minds. What might you be in for and up for? You need to be a total realist about this!

Indie Money
Between now and April 2017 you will be in a rare position to operate independently with your money, house, business, apartment, charity or possessions. What you tried in June or July was the start. Once Jupiter changes signs in September you are on your way with more to play with, save or earn – and you will gain. What is most precious, though, is freedom. By Easter next year you will have it. This period, starting now, is the most significant for your house, apartment, bank account, income, debts, charity, possessions and lifestyle in 12 years and the price tag you put on freedom is absolutely crucial.

ECLIPSE MEMO
Important! An eclipse always conceals, not reveals. Something important is being covered up, or the full picture cannot be known, on Thursday 18th August. Allow a day either side for the world to catch up with itself. On that day the Sun in Leo is opposite the Moon in Aquarius. For you, the focus will be work, housework, voluntary work, your body, lifestyle, unconscious mind, secrets.
