The only constant in life is change, they say, and coming energies are unlikely to contradict the adage. Uranus, planet of innovation and surprise, is the last of the outer planets to go retrograde this year on August 20. Before it does, the fine line between genius and madness can get a little blurry. Solutions once considered unthinkable may catch on quicker than you can say Indiana Jones. The urge to create is strong as August gets underway, and we would all do well to give new ideas the benefit of the doubt.
Developing around mid-month are a series of harsh contacts from inner planets to Saturn and Jupiter. A balance will need to be struck between self-indulgence and self-sacrifice, between our personal well-being and what’s good for the team. On August 22, a Blue (Full) Moon in Aquarius sheds more light on how our individual contributions fit into the big picture.
As the month draws to a close, the Universe presents an opening to translate deep personal insights into concrete change. Thoughts, feelings, and actions can all align to manifest our ideas under the influence of Grand Trines in the last days of August.
Your words flow easily this month, just as you are being called to provide a sympathetic ear to others. Not the best month for making personal progress with love or money, now is the time to upgrade your credentials as a pillar and support to others in your life. Someone who opposes your efforts at work may turn out to be a critical ally. Take their points seriously and you will end up refining your position into one of strength.
