MONTHLY HOROSCOPES by Beverley
GENERAL PLANETARY INFLUENCES AUGUST 2012
I’m sorry the August Horoscopes are a few days late, it’s an extremely hectic few months for me recently, plus I was rather unwell last week, so The Sun is now settled in bossy, dignified, extravagant, organized & regal Leo, with a need to be in control of people & situations, where possible. On 23rd August it moves into modest, organized, hygienic, modest, fussy Virgo, with some worry at times. The Moon started the month in aloof, pessimistic, responsible & realistic Capricorn. On 2nd August there was a Full Moon in imperative, magnetic, impulsive Aquarius, giving big reactions. The Last Quarter Moon is on 8th August in defensive, possessive, security conscious Taurus, with a need for possible changes. The New Moon is on 17th August in bossy, exuberant, flamboyant, melodramatic Leo, which can make us put our own needs first. The First Quarter Moon is on 24th August in intense, determined, jealous, strongwilled, Scorpio, making us aim for personal goals. There is another Full Moon on 31st August in emotional, sentimental, sensitive Pisces, causing potential over-reactions. Mercury remains in organized, dogmatic, stubborn Leo, all of August, with some over-dramatization of everything. It travels Retrograde until 8th August, leading to some misunderstandings. Venus remains in light-hearted, flirtatious Gemini until 7th August, but then moves into devoted, sympathetic, caring Cancer, with deeper emotions, causing some over-reactions at times. Mars is currently in diplomatic, fair, harmonious Libra enabling us to relate well to others people, & develop deeper understanding. On 23rd August it moves into demanding, intense & powerful Scorpio, with possible resentment especially regarding emotional matters at times. Jupiter is now in broad-minded, fun-loving Gemini until June next year, with a possible lack of concentration at times. Saturn remains in courteous, fair-minded, pleasant, but serious Libra, through most of this coming year, & gives more flexibility, with much work on behalf of the loser. It gives a need to get out & about. Uranus remains in energetic, courageous, self-willed, proud Aries, with rebelliousness, sudden, unexpected events or disruptive emotional matters, may distract us away from our usual routine, or help us see things in a new light, and hopefully starts to bring more balance. Uranus is currently travelling Retrograde for the next couple of months, enabling us to use our inner, creative thoughts positively. Neptune moves into sensitive, intuitive Pisces, & can help us gradually develop more empathy, compassion, & build understanding, though remaining realistic, will I feel also be important. It starts travelling Retrograde early this month, & can make us focus on our dreams more, with a need for realism too. Pluto remains in Capricorn for the foreseeable future, showing knowledge gradually acquired on deeper levels, with balance, & more realistic ways of recycling & developing our intuitive knowledge further, to use practically. It’s currently travelling Retrograde triggering a need for inner knowledge, or to discard what’s no longer relevant.
