Aquarius - August 2018
Hey Aquarius! Communication in your love relationships could be a struggle in August, as retrograde Mercury spends the days up to the 19th causing havoc in your house of partnerships! Conversations in general tend to become difficult under the influence of a Mercury retrograde transit, as people somehow don’t seem to get what you’re trying to tell them. Anything important which was discussed with your loved one between the 8th and 17th of July is also likely to come back to the top of your discussion list now, although agreement is unlikely to be reached until we reach the beginning of September. With Mercury connecting to a potent solar eclipse here on the 11th, a memory sharing time with an ex-partner could see you rekindling old love feelings for one another. Long-standing clashes with a work colleague over creative differences will also continue, as Mercury and Jupiter clash after the 15th. That colleague just isn’t listening, and it may be time to put a stop to this working partnership.
Lilith makes an important sign change on the 7th of August, an especially potent event for water-carriers, as her new home for the next nine months will be your sign! Lilith is a fireball of wilful energy who has no qualms about expressing her deep, dark secrets to the world. You will probably begin to notice fairly soon after her arrival here that you are no longer able to hide the real you behind that façade of social etiquette which we all try so hard to adhere to. This is about you, your self-expression and attending to your true inner desires. If others can’t accept you in your true form, then they really have no business being in your life! Your psychic awareness will be super-powerful now, as in releasing that control over your emotions, you allow your natural intuition to shine through. You will also be more able to sense what others are feeling.
Travel plans should be running smoothly after the 7th, as Venus sashays gracefully into your house of holidays and trips. Interesting places and beautiful views will be your inspiration behind any holiday bookings now, you will need more than just the sun and sand to keep you happy. Take care if you are planning a family getaway when Venus opposes Chiron between the 7th and 17th, however, someone who hasn’t been invited will be sure to make you feel terribly guilty about your omission! Trouble in general could follow your plans here, as it proves very challenging to keep everyone smiling. Pluto and Venus in square after the 21st could also take you into some demanding conversations with a friend or family member, as your moral conscience prevents you from condoning an ethically questionable decision they have made. It’s their call, but you really must do what you know in your heart is the right way.
The Sun floods your money sector with positive energy after the 24th, making this last week of the month a wonderful period for seeking support for your debts, credit and loan applications and inheritance matters. Authority figures will seem to be rooting for you now, and will be keen to get you on the right track. The Sun forms a triangle of fabulous connections with Saturn and Uranus during this period too, positive for clearing family debts, investing in property of all kinds and raising money for charitable institutions. August’s full Moon on the 26th will see a financial project reaching a conclusion; if you have been waiting for payment for a creative project, you will receive what is due now. Enjoy your month!
