Astrology for August
It's summer, the temperatures are soaring, the solar flare activity is off the charts (check out NASA’s Instagram!) and we have just experienced the closest full moon of the year. Wowzers.
Well hold on, because the start of August sees one of the biggest astrological events of the year.
This summer and well into Autumn, we are in the last throes of the Saturn-Uranus square. This energy was at its height for much of 2021, but it’s back for its final ding dong. Between now and October, we have the final play off between the two titans.
There will be increased tension globally as Saturn in Aquarius looks to double down its measures and desires to maintain control. However, what is different from 2021, is now Uranus has a secret in its battle against 'old world order’. A powerful conjunction around 30th July that some of you may well already be feeling.
This rare and very unpredictable event sees Uranus meeting up with the North Node and Mars to shift us all up in some way or another. You may already be personally experiencing surprising changes in your life, especially if you have a strong Taurus or Scorpio placements in your chart!
The Nodal Axis (in the signs of Taurus / Scorpio for 18 months) represent our progression through ‘earth school’ and the collective themes we are learning here together.
Uranus is AWAKENING energy... linked to our Kundalini Rising, where we start to feel our power crackle and stir. If there is something significant you want to do or feel inexplicably that there is a change you want to make (perhaps up until now you have been worried you will be laughed at or misunderstood) NOW and all the way into late Autumn is your time! Hold steady to your personal power and remind yourself that all changes are coming for your deepest good.
We are all here to contribute a gift towards something greater and we will never be content until we do.
