Monthly Forecasts
August 2014


Welcome to my monthly forecasts. These forecasts will help you understand the energies around you. The planets are constantly shifting and the universal energies affect our daily lives.

Each month I will guide you through the planetary movements and explain them in detail. Some months will have more astrological events than others but there will always be universal movements that will affect you.

That way, you can put it near your calendar and follow it day by day to know the energies around you.


What’s going to happen in August 2014?



FULL MOON – August 10 in Aquarius: This Full Moon is square Saturn, planet of difficulties, delays, and hard work. Yes, I know it’s summertime, but the next two weeks are best for taking care of your difficult projects, especially the things you have been putting off.

NEW MOON – August 25 in Virgo: Virgo is the sign of work so this New Moon is the period when we all start to put the summer fun behind us and get set for focusing on work again. Relationships tend to need more work in the next four weeks since the New Moon is opposite Neptune (confusion) and Venus squares both Saturn (difficulties) and Mars (arguments). Once again, avoid confrontation and arguments.


August 1 – Venus trine Saturn: This brings stability back to relationships. Seek the quieter pleasures today. Mars squares Jupiter: This is an impulsive aspect. Don’t push your luck. Little arguments can become big fast.

August 2 – Mercury conjunct Jupiter: This is good for thinking big. But watch out for the next aspect. Mercury squares Mars: Your mind is active today, but it is also impatient. Don’t rush things, especially while traveling.

August 7 – Mars trines Neptune: This is a good day to actively pursue your dreams.

August 8 – Sun conjunct Mercury: Your speech is more confident today. Now is the time to have those important conversations you have been putting off. Mercury trine Uranus: Your mind is working better today. Problems that have puzzled you may now seem clear. Also on this date, Sun trine Uranus: Now is the time to take action on those new ideas. Break routine. Mercury square Saturn: Normally this aspect can produce pessimism. But with those other good aspects, this one will give the necessary caution and focus to keep those new ideas on the right track.

August 9 – Sun square Saturn: This could make you ambitious or depressed. But the choice is yours.

August 12 – Venus enters Leo: It stays there until September 5. Enjoyment and fun take an upward turn. Put more recreation on your schedule.

August 15 – Mars sextiles Pluto: Energy increases. Use it to forge ahead with important projects. Mercury enters Virgo: It stays there until September 2. This can help you take care of all those pesky details.

August 18 – Venus conjuncts Jupiter: The planet of fun meets the planet of luck and expansion. Draw the obvious conclusions! Mercury opposite Neptune: Communications tend to be confused today. Double check those tweets and e-mails before you click “send.” You will be glad you did.

August 21 – Mercury trine Pluto: This is a good “detective” aspect. You can see hidden information and get to the bottom of problems.

August 23 – Sun enters Virgo: The focus starts to shift from fun to work.

August 25 – Mercury sextiles Mars: Your mind is faster today. Problems can be solved faster. Now is the time to take care of communications, especially if you have been putting them off. Venus trines Uranus: Okay, there is still a little bit of fun left in the summer. Do something new or different for fun today. Mercury sextiles Saturn: This is great. The Mercury/Mars earlier today gives you the energy. This aspect gives you the discipline and focus. You can accomplish a lot today. This aspect is good for scheduling, so you can still have some fun with the Venus/Uranus trine too. Mars conjuncts Saturn: This is good for focusing energy on any project. Make an extra effort to avoid arguments, though.

August 26 – Venus squares Saturn: The best use of this aspect is to do hard work (Saturn) to beautify things (Venus).

August 27 – Venus squares Mars: This tends to impulse buying. Put off expensive purchases for a few days. Avoid arguments with those you love.

August 29 – Sun opposite Neptune: Don’t make important deals today. There’s a fog over everything. Thinking is not clear.

See you next month for the September 2014 Forecast
and may the stars be with you!
