Well it’s August and the solar system is heating up, even if you live in the Southern Hemisphere. There’s a real financial theme to August, doused with karmic destiny.
First, there’s a New Moon in Leo on the 6th where everything old is new again thanks to a rare Jupiter-Pluto opposition on the 7th. Pluto is all about transformation; it’s destiny in motion—this time mixed in with Jupiter’s luck and financial savvy. Where you are going in life and aligning yourself with your passion and finding your “place is the Sun” is what this transit is all about.
Also, August is host to the second of two Full Moons in a row in the sign of Aquarius—this one a little kinder, gentler and way more romantic than the last. The Sun enters Virgo on the 22nd (Happy Birthday, Virgos!). Meanwhile Venus enters Libra (a sign she rules) on the 23rd and then goes right into oppositions with Pluto and then Uranus. Jupiter, Pluto and Uranus make the 21st through the weekend of the 24th a wonky time where love and money are concerned, so just lay low. And let’s not forget, Mercury occupies no less than three signs this month just to keep things hopping.
