Edito: Browse through the stars to know the position and movement of the planets. An astral landscape written by Susan which also helps you to understand your monthly horoscope. Here, they are for this month of August 2021!
Until the 22nd, the Sun in Leo will stimulate exchanges of all kinds (on the 1st). On the 2nd, it has to deal with obstacles that could darken its radiance and restrict our creativity and aim! Be careful not to take unwise risks on the 6th. Whether it is on the physical or intellectual level, any form of excess could be punished by an unexpected, unpleasant incident! The same advice should be followed on the 20th, when the star of the day could push us to overestimate our strengths and go overboard. Let's try to channel our energies and keep on track as much as possible!
Mercury in Leo until the 10th could make some people talkative. For others, it will undoubtedly tend to block exchanges that will turn into a dialogue of the deaf and end in deadlock. You will certainly be on edge on the 4th and not very inclined to listen to what you are told? Expect to be a bit overexcited and provoke a clash or even a break-up that will pressure you! You will certainly have some difficulty on the 11th prioritizing your ideas, which go off in all directions. You also have trouble channelling desires that you will want to concretize right away. Beware of overestimations and excess that will not necessarily serve your objectives and interests! On the 19th, you will certainly not go out of your way to say out loud what you have in mind. You carry out your ambitions! Bold initiatives and proposals could help you score points on the 20th. Keep your feet on the ground on the 22nd, and do not get too high in the sky. You should tackle all subjects and issues in depth the next day (the 26th) and transform what needs to be transformed into something better!
Venus will evolve in Virgo until the 16th! This delightful planet will invite you to smooth things over on the 3rd. You get your bold (transgressive) messages across as smoothly as possible. You tend to exalt your desire to sublimate your loves even if it means breaking with the reality of things and events (on the 10th) a little! Count on Venus on the 11th to exacerbate passions, rekindle the flame and/or provoke intense encounters! From the 16th, Venus takes over the sign of Libra. A priori, you will opt for the reasoned version at the end of the month (on the 23rd). In association with Saturn, the goddess of love, things will calm down (and passion) rather than stoking the fire. This may be an opportunity to examine our feelings to determine whether or not they hold up (or no longer hold up).
Mars will not leave the sign of Virgo until next month (September 15th)! This warrior planet will only make its presence felt in the second half of the month. It will ignite minds and debates on the 19th and exalt our thirst to transgress certain limits, rules, and laws that we find limiting, even oppressive! We will then count on an unbeatable striking force to move forward and not give an inch (anymore) to those who would like to maintain any kind of status quo.
Jupiter will be in Aquarius until December 29th, 2021. In this naturally freedom-loving sign, this zodiac giant will work primarily to try to broaden our horizons. It may well push us to renew our conception of society and our involvement in the process! We risk being tempted to break with the past and the conventional if we judge that the framework they offer us has become dated, narrow, or even totally outdated! Jupiter tends to exalt the nature of the planets he is in contact with. In August, he will multiply our ideas but not necessarily put them in order on the 11th when communication could go in all directions and end up in sterile exchanges. The same goes for the 20th! By dint of trying too hard to shine and attract light and attention, we could find ourselves restrained in our aspirations by an opposing current that invites us to be concerned about the collective as much as (or even more) than our personal glory!
Saturn in Aquarius (a sign that it masters as much as Capricorn but differently) exalts our idealistic aspirations (demands) and our desire to move the lines and renew the codes on which our societies are based, rather than a slow maturation of our reflections. However, be careful! If our expectations are disappointed or subject to delays, the desire to rebel will be more powerful than in Capricorn. Aquarius does not deal easily with constraint and prudence! In August, Saturn will hinder us on the 1st and 2nd. It will tend to lead to a decline in exchanges and, by extension, in our morale! You will feel like you are treading water, that you are being held back and that you feel powerless! Fortunately, at the end of the month, Venus should favour the expression of Saturn's more rounded and tolerant dimension. This is an opportunity for this austere planet to develop more listening skills and allow us to better channel our emotions (on the 23rd)!
Astrology: What You Need to KnowAs the Moon moves at full speed in the zodiac (it travels approximately one sign in two days),we can't detail its evolution in our astral press review! However, its influence can activate sensitive points in the map of our sky... If you wish to know the Moon's position day by day, consult the ephemerides*, which will inform you about the daily position of the planets.
GMT (Greenwich time meridian): universal time to which you have to add (currently) for France one hour in winter and two hours in summer to determine at what exact moment the planet enters a new sign, crosses another planet, etc...
The planets in retrograde: The apparent movement of a planet that gives the impression that the planet stops and then starts again. This phenomenon actually results from the difference between the speed of revolution of the planet and Earth around the Sun. In astrology, a retrograde represents a force that works against the current. Generally, it corresponds to the internalization of energy. Sometimes, it means restraining evolution and recommends that the individual ask themselves about the work to be done to free themselves from the debts of the past or to exploit their potential more consciously!
Domicile of a planet: The sign in which a planet evolves in affinity (for example, Venus in Taurus). The planet then expresses its potential without constraint, freely and creatively...
