Full Moon in Aquarius

Astral Weather Report, August 2012

The Full Moon on the first day of the month sets the opening scene for August 2012. With the Moon in Aquarius opposite the Sun in Leo, tension mounts between the need to be of service to others versus service to self.

On August 7, Venus, the planet of love and romance, switches into sentimental Cancer, suggesting that your attitude toward love may be more mushy and sensitive over the next four and a half weeks. You may find yourself —and others—side- stepping toward romantic goals instead of moving directly and decisively. Look for subtleties instead of waiting for any huge signs or signals. Remain sensitive to other people’s needs as they, too are most likely feeling more vulnerable than usual.

August 8 marks the first full day that Mercury is direct. As Mercury regains forward motion, communication gets back on track and it is safe to sign contracts and make purchases of mechanical and electrical objects.

The New Moon on August 17 is a good time to begin a 40-day habit-altering practice and for taking personal and moral inventory of self, home and family situations.

The Sun switches gears on August 22, leaving light-hearted and happy-go-lucky Leo and moving into grounded and business-minded Virgo. It’s the time of year to get organized. Clean your desk and alphabetize your files. Deal with the details or tend to your garden. Over the next four weeks, take time revisit your daily routine, make changes to augment your personal health and look to new ways in which you can be of service to your community. Things are looking up. Get grounded and make a move.
