Hey Libra! Jupiter is busy in your sign in August, and the buzz from that optimistic, generous energy flowing through Libra world will make you feel invincible! Jupiter is trying very hard right now to permeate all your interactions with positive energy; this of course is a marvelous thing, but a down side is that he can at times be a little over the top. It’s important to set yourself boundaries and keep your feet on the ground when assessing the pros and cons of a new project. His sextile with the Sun between the 6th and 17th adds a lucky edge to friendship interactions; there is good fortune to be had now from making new acquaintances, listening to friends’ advice and connecting with clubs and societies of all kinds. Jupiter’s connection with Venus during the days of the 12th to 23rd is a little harsher and is a time for holding back in a work situation where all eyes appear to be on you. Don’t say something you will regret; it could have a detrimental impact on your career prospects.
Saturn and Lilith hook up for the next two months, in a rather unlikely alliance which will see you searching for the truth in your conversations with others. Saturn is a stern stickler for detail, and in theory Lilith’s wild desire to totally be herself chafes against his ideals. But what they have in common is a need for clarity and honesty, and nothing but this will do for you right now. You will be quick to notice when people are lying or being selective with the truth; trust your intuition and push until you get to the facts. Just be wary of an obsessive suspicion which can develop as a result of this need for certainty ; this tendency could damage your personal relationships if you can’t show loved ones that you trust them and accept their decisions.
A significant lunar eclipse on the 7th is the first of two amazing lunar experiences this month. This eclipse focuses on love and romance, and you may finally feel that the way forward has been revealed to you now, as you see at last where you have been going wrong in your love relationships. Potential love partnerships which just aren’t going anywhere will be brought to an abrupt conclusion, as opposition from Mars ensures that you are taking no prisoners in affairs of the heart. An argument could be the trigger for a parting of ways, and long term you know this is the best outcome. Be wary of the days of the 11th to 14th too; opposition between the Sun and Moon will generate confusion and frustration around an inability to express feelings. Some more positive days for getting what you want are the 15th to 17th and 24th to 26th, as the Moon in conjunction with your natal Sun adds charm and confidence to your choices.
Watch out for Mars in conjunction with the north node in your house of friends from the 26th of August to the 5th of September. This is a time for dealing with some of that karmic baggage which has accompanied you to this life time. Conflict, aggression, competition and dominance are all issues which will be played out in a close friendship during this period. The solar eclipse of the 21st will bring a new addition to your social circle too; this person is set to have a huge impact on your life in around six months from now, so make a note of their arrival and watch how events unfold! Have a marvellous month!
