Overview

August gets off to a very positive start as Saturn turns direct on August 1st. Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces will feel a lessening of frustration, and for all of us, responsibilities may start to feel slightly less onerous now. The following day, Mercury trines Uranus, opening the door for some technological breakthroughs and innovative thinking in the global arena. It's important not to run before we can walk, however, as the Jupiter-Saturn square on August 3rd reminds all of us, and the fire signs Aries, Leo and Sagittarius in particular.

Venus is blowing both hot and cold in the first week of August. The lovely Venus-Jupiter conjunction on August 4th brings a true feel-good vibe to the day, but the next day's hangover, in the shape of a Venus-Saturn square, strains personal relationships for the earth signs, Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn.

Saturn too is engaged in stop-start transits in early August. On August 6th, the planet of restriction and responsibility makes a positive trine with Mars but a much more dubious square with Mercury. Enthusiasm is strong here and the mutable signs, Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces will want to push ahead with plans in a hurry. Unfortunately, if details are not thought through correctly, too much haste can lead to failure.

Mercury's ingress into critical Virgo on August 7th is tempered by Mars' arrival in big-picture Leo on August 8th - between them, these two ingresses are very positive news for most signs, but particularly for the fire signs, Aries, Leo and Sagittarius, who will find it easier now to pair ambition and drive with good groundwork.

When Jupiter enters Virgo on August 11th, the little things start to matter more to all of us. This transit is about finding value in the everyday, and it refines enthusiasm into something workable and very do-able. This will particularly benefit the earth signs, Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn, but it's also an important transit for global politics and may well see spiritual and philosophical goals taking on a more concrete shape over the coming months.

The middle of August is marked by some inspirational moments. The Mercury-Neptune opposition on August 12th sends us back to the drawing board, but it's swiftly followed by an encouraging Sun-Uranus trine on August 13th, which rewards innovative thinking and helps to find ways to fix what's broken. The Leo New Moon on August 14th underlines the forward-looking vibe, and on August 15th Mercury trines Pluto, bringing a greater level of psychological understanding to all signs, but particularly to Virgo and Capricorn.

A Venus-Uranus trine on August 19th is all about overcoming fear in order to help someone we love, although a Mercury-Chiron opposition the following day hints that our efforts are easily misunderstood. As the Sun squares Saturn on August 21st, the fire signs, Aries, Leo and Sagittarius will find their progress temporarily blocked, but it's nothing a little hard work can't sort out, as evidenced by the Sun's ingress into sleeves-rolled-up Virgo on August 23rd.

August ends on a kind, charitable and humanitarian note. The spiritual Sun-Jupiter conjunction on August 26th could lead to a new initiative in countries which are suffering, and when Mercury enters fair-minded Libra the following day, great minds are put to use to better the lot of others. The Pisces Full Moon on August 29th heightens global sensitivity and demands closure on an emotive issue.

Although the Sun-Neptune opposition on August 31st suggests that practical solutions may still be some way off, there is certainly no lack of will as Venus conjuncts Mars. This latter aspect is a highly personal one too, and brings passion and emotional depth to Aries, Leo and Sagittarius.
