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 2022!
The Sun is in Leo (thus in domicile) until the 23rd and will reveal the brutal face of Uranus around the 11th: the established order could be undermined and a climate of crisis destabilize the powers that be. The star of the day will then tend (on the 14th) to place us in a form of impasse (political, social) with the feeling for many of running into a wall, of not seeing any light at the end of the tunnel. From the 23rd, the Sun moves into Virgo. A change of sign which (unfortunately) does not light up the road since around the 27th, manipulations, censorship and constraints seem to want to close a summer month more favorable to confrontation and conflicts than to peace or the warrior's rest.
Mercury ends its course in Leo on the 4th to invest the sign of Virgo until the 26th. The "messenger of the Gods" could intervene (on the 16th) in favor of novelty and propose unexpected solutions to current problems. Be careful not to sign anything blindly, without having carefully read and reread the fine print at the bottom of the contract. Misunderstandings, misunderstandings, even fool's deals are not to be excluded in August, because the atmosphere looks anything but healthy. Let's hope however that discussions and negotiations will lead to constructive agreements that will positively reshuffle the cards on the 22nd (one can always dream)!
Venus is in Cancer until the 11th. We can count on this delightful planet to encourage creative movements, to favor new encounters, love at first sight and, why not, poker games on the 2nd. Emotions and feelings will be anything but lukewarm on the 3rd, but declarations and flights of fancy will be rather romantic on the 7th. We will need the gentle touch of Venus on this day to counteract a rather harsh, even brutal cosmic situation. Besides, on the 9th, the planet will cross the path of Pluto, confronting our need for love, to be nourished and protected, with the blind law of a collective currently not very inclined to romance. Venus will migrate into Leo on the 11th, promising to warm our hearts, facilitate exchanges and peace talks on the 18th, but will clash successively with Uranus on the 27th and Saturn on the 28th. Two planets that could quickly extinguish the fires of love and a hoped-for concord.
Mars will leave Taurus on the 20th for the sign of Gemini which he will occupy until March 25, 2023. A long transit that may impact communication in general. Whether it is political, social or concerns our relationship with our close circle of friends, there could well be some turmoil. Whatever the case, from the 1st, the tone is likely to rise and the atmosphere to be explosive. Warlike outbreaks to be feared, an economic blockade... We start the month already in a state of crisis (7th). If some initiatives intended to raise the debates and to get out of the impasse seem to open perspectives (on the 11th, on the 14th),the entry of Mars in Gemini will unfortunately finish lighting the fuse (on the 27th).
Jupiter will temporarily move into Aries between May 10 and October 28, 2022. A long parenthesis that could favor the emergence of a new breath and more audacious initiatives. In August, the giant planet of the zodiac will join forces with Venus (on the 18th) to try to bring peace initiatives and speeches to the forefront. Not enough, however, to allow us to end this rather electric month on a better note.
Astrology: What You Need to Know
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...
