Astral Meanders August 2018


In General:

This month is still suffering under the slower energy of many retrogrades. These planets include: Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto, Mars, Neptune, Uranus, and Mercury.
During a multi-retrograde period like this, the energy becomes slow and instead of trying to forge ahead, we should instead look to our past and how our actions, attitudes, and beliefs can manifest in our lives in positive ways.

Mars is the most significant of these retrogrades, as it retrogrades the least often and its effects are much more noticeable. When Mars retrogrades it really challenges us to assess and review the direction of our lives. It can make us feel argumentative and on edge. Mercury goes retrograde every few months so its energy is something we are used to. However the effects of Mercury retrograde during this month are likely to be amplified and we may feel more out of sorts than usual. During Mercury retrograde in Leo, we may be encouraged to think about new ways to be creative and innovative.


Our final eclipse for 2018 comes on August 11th in Leo. With this Leo solar eclipse, we may want to focus on many aspects of love, what we love about our lives, making time to do the things we love, and being with the people we love.
Then we have a full moon in Pisces on August 26th. Pisces brings in some compassionate, empathic energy, and we can work on being more understanding emotionally and spiritually.

If you have a birthday in August you will have a year focused on relationships. On the world scene it’s a volatile time with much that is unexpected and out of the blue, occurring. Locally be prepared to listen to your heart.

Quote: The pacifist's task today is to find a method of helping and healing which provides a revolutionary constructive substitute for war. ~Vera Brittain, 1964

Aries
Whether you realize it or not you are poised on a more creative path and your next step is to clear the way for new innovations. This may also require you to heal some self-esteem issues. The time has come to let go of social distractions and focus on your own gifts.

Taurus

Life has been rather hectic for Taureans of late. This month is no different except that you may have a reprieve around August 8 and 9, where you have a moment to catch your breath before adjusting to more changes. If you keep your eye on the ultimate goal, then you are likely to look back on this time with deep satisfaction.

Gemini

Money and prestige are just over the horizon. This is a very positive turning point for Gemini. Lots of change, innovation, and the unusual will keep you entertained now. The full moon brings out your compassionate side and you may find yourself helping out a friend in need.

Cancer

You have a lot to be thankful for in this cycle. Things become simpler and easier again. Mercury retrograde ends mid-month and it’s easier to get written assignments completed and documents dealt with. The Full moon on the 26th provides you with some useful intuitive insights.

Leo

The solar eclipse is a very powerful influence for new energy in your life. Your whole world could pivot, based on a major new job, a home move, a new exciting romance, or some other major positive change in your life. Mercury turns direct in Leo on August 19th, and things become much more balanced and calm again.

Virgo

You may find yourself dealing with issues that are sensitive or in some cases secret, this month. However, by the Full Moon in Pisces on the 26th, you will have a clearer picture of what you want to achieve and where you are going. Happily, your financial situation is good this month!


Libra

Apart from Mars’s retrograde position, which could create some difficulties and which will continue through August 19th, all else is positive for you this month.  After the 19th, business negotiations and written work are favoured. Make sure to use this opportunity wisely.

Scorpio

Relationships require a degree of care this month. There could be part of you that wants to be very much more to the point, particularly from midmonth, and folk could find you rather outspoken mid-August. A more social and gregarious trend comes in from the Full Moon of the 26th.

Sagittarius

There are opportunities to make new friends this month, through travel, education or work. The key is not to have any preconceived ideas, as there’s a chance you could encounter someone initially, that doesn't quite seem your cup of tea, and then find out that there is a lot more to them, which will be appealing to you.

Capricorn

This month's Partial Solar Eclipse forges an angle to Pluto, in your sign, Capricorn. This can cause some frustration and the unexpected. Professionally you should be able to do quite well this month. Travel for work or a new posting in your job is a distinct possibility. It’s an excellent month to carry out plans since you will certainly succeed.

Aquarius

Although you will be working through some ideas that are different and not necessarily fully understood by you, don't dismiss the importance of the process that you're going through. It will provide you with the foundation for brilliant new things to come. Mercury goes direct on the 19th, and new possibilities will fall into place.

Pisces

The Full Moon on the 26th of August is in your sign and creates a delicate link to both Saturn and Uranus. This creates an energy that brings change or alterations in general and often improvements around relationships. Embrace this change and open up to new and innovative things for the best results.


Astral meditations: Mars retrograde
All of the planets have a period of being in retrograde, when they “appear” to move backward in the sky. Mercury turns retrograde when it is about 14 degrees ahead of the Sun and it is retrograde for 3 weeks 3 times each year. The other planets turn retrograde when they are on the opposite side of the zodiac from the Sun. Often, a planet forming a trine to the Sun will also be retrograde. Mars is retrograde for slightly less than 2 months every 2 years. When a planet is retrograde, it does not work in its usual manner. One frequently needs to make changes in their lives or to work on an inner, psychological level before the planet can express itself outwardly. When Mars is retrograde, it depletes vitality so that it is never a great time to initiate things. Whoever initiates at this time will lose, be it a new project, a great love, an argument, a lawsuit, or an even an international war. New projects seldom get off the ground, it new romances tend to go no-where. Even in an international war, history shows that whomever fires first during a Mars retrograde will automatically lose or ultimately withdraw.
So the best way to handle a Mars retrograde, is to be patient, keep strong and grounded in what you are doing, and wait till later to begin new things that you desire taking into your long-term future.

July 2018 Astral Meanders

JULY 2018 
In General: 

Following over two years in Cancer, Saturn moves into Leo on the 16th of July having a major impact on the energy of this month. There are new lessons we must learn as a result of this change and our journeys will shift in their emphasis. The New Moon on the 6th July is in Cancer, heralding new beginnings emotionally and the Full Moon once again will be in career focused Capricorn. Overall, July is a month when we can reactivate our creativity and give old ideas and projects another go, or a complete overhaul. 

For a little irritation Mercury turns retrograde on the 23rdtaking us well into August! There are delays in travel and communication and its best to allow for this when making plans. 
There are in fact quite a few retrograde planets this month. Mars, Saturn, Pluto and Jupiter all place retrograde for some of the month. So we might experience a greater sense of frustration in general! We want fast action but we all we are going to get is a slow steady pace! If we can curb our natural impatience and use this month for some sensible re-evaluating and reformulating of personal and professional strategies, we can assure future success for ourselves. 

If you have a birthday this month then it will bring a year ahead filled with opportunity if you can be extremely honest with yourself and those around you. Locally it’s a month of reflection, which is beneficial if used wisely and on the world scene it should result in some unsuspected changes in high places. 

Thought for the month: Adopt the pace of nature:  her secret is patience.  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson



Aries

Home, family and issues of personal security are highlighted for Aries this month. Your inner desires for fun and excitement are also brought to the forefront now.  Getting out into the natural environment and engaging in sporting activities should appeal to you. Your social life is solid and others will appreciate your kindness and generosity.

Taurus

It’s a busy time for Taurus and there seems to be a lot of activity around you. The home front is especially full and rewarding. For many of you home renovations or the building of a new home is on the cards.
Financial opportunities, negotiations and investments are favoured, but do double check any documents you sign. 

Gemini

Communications are likely to be light, affectionate and fun this month. Saturn however, is beginning to influence your social life and give it a more serious bent. The very good news, though, is that any strain you have felt during the past two years, where your personal financial situation is concerned, should now ease as Saturn leaves the sign of Cancer. 

Cancer

Saturn moves into Leo, the area of your chart connected with your personal finances and your property. You are now likely to be forced to get your affairs in order and a wealthier you should emerge in the future as a result. Venus remains in Leo for most of the month however and you may need to curb a desire to acquire things you don’t really need!

Leo

With Venus in your sign Leo, you’re likely to be in a good mood this month and prepared to do whatever it takes to facilitate harmonious relationships! It is only in the last week of July, when Mercury turns retrograde and Venus moves on into Virgo, that you will have to take extra care with all your communications in order to avoid misunderstandings.

Virgo

With Saturn moving into Leo, you may feel somewhat withdrawn and are apt to dwell on what you have or have not accomplished in your life thus far. This is not the best month for starting new projects, but rather a positive time to evaluate the year that has gone so that you are ready to make necessary changes come Spring when the astrological climate is more progressive. 

Libra
Librans are likely to have additional responsibilities this month, especially where teamwork is concerned. Opportunities are coming thick and fast now and will bring you much success, it’s important however that you find the right group of people with whom to work. Mars can cause some tension with partners or close relationships and you must be prepared to compromise.

Scorpio

If you are a Scorpion who is ambitious and has prepared well, then this can be the time of your greatest success! However, it can also be a time of greater responsibility in your career, public life or both, which can put a strain on your domestic life, so it’s important to find a balance and keep it. Do your best communicate with clarity and preciseness now. 

Sagittarius

You will most likely be feeling a strong a desire to widen your horizons in some way this month Sagittarius, whether this be through travel or further education or similar. In fact with Saturn moving into Leo any long distance journeys you make for quite some time into the future will be undertaken more for practical reasons or obligations than for pure pleasure.

Capricorn

With Mercury turning retrograde on the 23rd, it’s advantageous to get any paper-work out of the way before the likelihood of miscommunication and delays. After two years of having Saturn in Cancer, providing a testing time during which close relationships were put through the ringer, Saturn now moves into Leo, heralding greater pleasure and light heartedness in this arena.

Aquarius
Work has been very hard going recently, but as Saturn moves on into Leo, the New Moon suggests that you are able to make a new positive start in this area. Relationships however are about to be tested somewhat and strong relationships will become even stronger, whilst those that are wrong for you are likely to be discarded.

Pisces

There is a temptation to be overindulgent this month so keep an eye on your health and well -being! Any health problems you do have can indicate that your lifestyle needs to be looked at more closely and improvements need to be made. Paying attention to this area will pay off in the future. Double check any documents that need to be signed. 

Astral meditations: Meditations on Saturn…..

Each planet is associated with a different chakra. It is all about vibration, so when we think, act or sing in a way that activates a different chakra, we are adding light and energy to those areas of our ‘being’ or those layers of our aura in essence.  

Saturn is associated with the 6th Chakra, guiding us to one of the highest levels on our path of spiritual evolution.
Saturn is associated with time and is timeless.
Saturn helps us to define our values and to live by them. 

Sixth chakra meditation focuses on the Ajnaor third eye chakra, the chakra of perception, imagination and visualization. Meditation on this chakra can help to balance these qualites and enhance your decision making. 
  • Sit comfortably, breathe deeply
  • Visualize a deep-indigo luminous light spinning slowly at the centre of your forehead 
  • Imagine this indigo light filling up your head 
  • Now visualize a beam of indigo light shooting down from the chakra to encompass and fill your whole body
  • Imagine this light filling up your entire body with a radiant energy
  • Meditate for 10-15 minutes 
  • Breathe and relax…..enjoy your day
