aries 21 March - 20 April Be forewarned that August will not be calmer than the last couple of months. This is due to not one but TWO Eclipses! You may feel the effects of the eclipse for several days on either side. Old issues with friends may surface and perhaps you gain a sudden insight into a friend’s mind and heart. You should evaluate your wishes and dreams, asking yourself if you are on the right track. The Solar Eclipse on the 22nd August is in Leo which forms a strong and powerful angle to your Sun sign. This is the time to sell any art work, real estate or enter a creative venture with a lover or partner. Perhaps you become a parent or you hear of someone else having children. Mark August the 12th as Mercury turns retrograde in Virgo the next day. This means review, reconsider, and revise, rather launch anything new. It is smart not to buy a car or electronics during this period.
taurus 21 April - 21 May Not only will you find two eclipses altering your perception and your direction in life, but there are also two planets changing direction and one planet changing its sign! The Luna Eclipse on 8th August falls in your professional area. You will concern yourself about a career issue. Delay any decision as Mercury will turn retrograde from August 12th and that will cause a revision of your whole world. The Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 22nd has a strong and major effect on your emotional issues and there are several new opportunities, concerning your home, your family and even your public life. If your home is on the market you should receive a solid offer. If you are house shopping you might find the right place. B aware of your guide spirit who provides insight. Mercury is retrograde August 12thto September 5th take time to clean out closets.
gemini 22 May - 22 June Eclipses are always big events astrologically. The Lunar Eclipse this month will bring up your inner needs and shake you up emotionally. Solar Eclipse will trigger external events and bring you new creative opportunities. Often we must sacrifice or give up something to make way for a new opportunity. So the Lunar Eclipse on August 8th challenges your beliefs, courtesy of a friend, partner, or relative. This pushes your buttons, however Jupiter in Libra helps you balance your emotions to effectively deal with the challenge. With Mars and Venus, close to the Eclipse on August 22nd this adds up to new opportunities coming at you out of the blue and catching you by surprise. Mercury retrograde from August 12 to Sept 5th sees misunderstandings common during these periods and only happens four times a year! Saturn turns direct in Sagittarius from August 25th being great for travelling overseas!
cancer 23 June - 22 July Sometimes a crisis has to happen so that we can confront our emotions about something and deal with them. You are going to experience a Lunar and Solar Eclipse, which will trigger external events in your life and can usher in twice as many opportunities as a normal ordinary month. So get ready Cancer, as August could be a wild month for you! There may be some drama surrounding your partner’s income. Jupiter suggest that things will shape up fine in the end. The Solar Eclipse in Leo on the 22nd sees Uranus forming a beneficial angle to this eclipse, indicating a sudden, unexpected event to your life. Mercury will go retrograde, in Virgo, from the 12th August to the 5th September. Since this retro occurs in your financial area, watch your credit transactions, check your financial statements, pay cash for purchases when you can. There may be delays in your travel plans.
leo 23 July- 22 August This will be your most exciting month for all of 2017! Just think back to the last February Eclipse, and how any event impacted your life, or what specific events occurred then. August may now be similar in texture because there is on 8th a Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius, which opposes your sign, and then on August 22nd a Solar Eclipse in your own sign. Thanks to the Warrior Planet, Mars, in your sign, you may feel the need to defend yourself for your beliefs. Jupiter now in Libra, forms a beneficial angle to the Eclipse so don’t dwell on how right you may be or how wrong the other person is. There may be an element of surprise in these Eclipses, for instance a job offer that comes out of the blue, a marriage proposal, an unexpected move or n opportunity for travel. However, new opportunities land on your doorstep and your challenge is to pick it up. Choose the opportunity best for your now.
virgo 23 August - 23 September There are four major events that you will see happen this month. First there are two Eclipses, Mercury turns retrograde in Virgo on August 12th, Saturn turns direct in Sagittarius August 25th and Venus enters Leo on August 26th. The Lunar Eclipse on the 8th pushes your work routine button and an unexpected change may take place in your work schedule. However, Jupiter in Libra, forms a beneficial angle so things are not as bad as they initially seem. The Solar Eclipse on August 22nd ushers in new opportunities for you to strut your stuff! You are going to do something very powerful and that you will enjoy doing as Mars moves an enormous amount of energy and drive behind opportunities moving towards you. With Uranus it suggests that some opportunities are sudden and unexpected. August 12th, with Mercury retrograde in your sign says to revise, review and reconsider old projects.
libra 24 September - 23 October August sees two eclipses that help you clear out the old, so you can make room for the new. Mars in Uranus may see this happen this month in abrupt ways. The August 8th Lunar Eclipse triggers beneficial creative energies and the Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 22nd should bring in new opportunities to work with the team of like minded friends. Mercury will turn retrograde on August 12th sliding back into the Leo sign and then turning direct in that sign on September 5th. You may need to review and reconsider some of the work you have been doing over the last few months. People that you may not have seen in a long time could show up in your life again. On the 25th Saturn turns direct in Sagittarius bringing to you a welcome change. You may structure you life so that everything is more judiciously balanced. From August 26th Venus transits Leo and forms beneficial party energies
scorpio 24 October - 22 November Once every six months high drama is possible when there are two eclipses taking place that can give you a sense of urgency and perhaps you may feel rather frantic. Eclipses tend to bring issues and relationships right into the forefront of awareness and we have to act quickly. The Lunar Eclipse on August 8th is in Aquarius and the domestic sector of your chart. Mars in Jupiter form beneficial angles and indicate there is an p of some kind at your home base, perhaps with a parent, that could trigger an emotional reaction. Try to avoid a confrontation. The Solar Eclipse in Leo on august 22nd falls in your career sector. Several professional opportunities may surface, such as a raise or promotion or perhaps a new job offer. Venus entering Leo from the 26th may mean you have a pay rise. Be aware of Mercury retrograde between Aug 12th and Sep 5th as appointments may get delayed.
sagittarius 23 November - 21 December Here we are finding that there are two eclipses this month. The first one is a Lunar Eclipse on August 8th and fortunately for you Sagittarians, Aquarius is compatible with your fire sign. With Mars in the sign of Leo and Jupiter in transit through Libra, these signs are compatible with yours, forming beneficial angles to the eclipse degree. This generally means that you will be involved in writing and communicating, or networking, within your neighbourhood or professional career. On August 12th, Mercury turns retrograde in Virgo, and comes back into the fire sign of Leo, on the last day of the month. This retro period impacts your profession and your career. You will revise projects that you thought were finished. Then you will get to the Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 22nd and all your opportunities may in fact have double benefits. Opportunities are for foreign travel or a workshop.
capricorn 22 December - 20 January Both eclipses during the month of August and Mercury turning retrograde could see you having a somewhat bumpy time this month. The Lunar Eclipse on the 8th occurs in the financial sector of your chart. This eclipse may push your buttons particularly about how want to find security and safety in your life. You may find that there is a sense of urgency, triggered by the institutions playing with the interest rates. When the Solar eclipse comes up in Leo on the 22nd it is like another hit flows your way concerning your financial sector. However, if you have had a skill as a writer you may find that under this creative eclipse you could sell your novel or your screen play! You may even receive an unexpected cheque or even inherit money. On the 12th August with Mercury turning retrograde in Virgo need to remember that this cycle until 5th September means some delays in appointments.
aquarius 21 January - 19 February As you are an “air” sign in Astrology, both eclipses this month fall in the axis of Aquarius, your sign, and Leo, your opposite sign. This means you may feel as if you are on a roller coaster, however once you step back a little you will see the larger picture, and gain perspective on what is happening. Do not spend time stewing over someone who annoys you in your personal life, just say your piece and be done with it! Everything blows over quickly this month especially under the Solar Eclipse in Leo on the 22nd. That should be a power house of new opportunities for you. You may need new venues for self expression or new partnerships for greater expansion in some area of your life. On August 12th Mercury will turn retrograde in the sign of Virgo and then turns direct again in Leo on September 5th. That will be the best rewarding time to revise and renew all your financial statements.
pisces 20 February - 20 March August is a month that features two major eclipses. One is in Aquarius and that is called the Lunar Eclipse on the 8th August and the other one is Solar Eclipse in the sign of Leo on the 22nd August. These eclipses will cause you to address something within yourself, possibly any résistance, attitude or feeling that surfaces. The latter eclipse sees the possibility of you shining in your work place or you may be promoted. Sometimes you may move into a new building. If you are self employed you may land a new project or a job that thrills you. Just be aware on August 12th Mercury turns retrograde in Virgo and does not turn direct again until September 5th. By now you may know how to best navigate the communication planet in its reverse motion. Remember not to sign contracts that may have you buying a new car or new technology. You may have to return the items at a later date.
What event happened to you in 1998/9?
The Eclipse period for August sees 2 major signs effected Aquarius and Leo. You may have to let go of old situations early this year and move in a new creative pattern!
There is a Fixed Star called “Regulus” and it will certainly impact all our lives as it did 19/20 years ago! The most notorious figure in world Politics now is Donald Trump the President of the USA. Look at the effect of “Regulus” detail below and know that this President is facing the energy that makes or breaks Kings and Queens!
With 21st century Regulus, the risk of downfall is only great if one resorts to displaying excess pride, ego-mania, arrogance, and most of all the famous Regulus revenge. It is said that the higher these Lions climb, the bigger the risk of falling from grace. However I think this ‘pride comes before a fall’ attitude might be another way to keep the average person down. There is nothing wrong with genuine self-love and confidence! Being the best and aiming for excellence is almost frowned upon those days. Regulus passionately conserves culture, and is ultra-protective towards their creations, descendants and artistic ones. So these lions will naturally empower others to recognise their own creativity and sovereignty. In this case then, the red carpet will not be pulled abruptly from under their feet and Regulus in its high vibration can be a great mentor.

WHAT IS AN ECLIPSE!
Eclipses are very important events astrologically, and yet they are also very misunderstood.
Most people think that eclipses are very rare events, but actually we have two sets of eclipses every year, or one set of eclipses every five and a half months or so. What is rare are eclipses that can actually be observed. Solar Eclipses can only be seen across a relatively narrow path. Lunar Eclipses on the other hand can be seen from just about everywhere that happens to be experiencing night at the time of the eclipse.
Solar Eclipses can only occur at the moment of the New Moon; Lunar Eclipses can only occur at the moment of the Full Moon. You can see eclipses in a chart by simply looking at the Moon’s Nodes. Whenever there is a Full Moon or a New Moon within 18°31’ of one of the Nodes, it is an eclipse. The Moon’s Nodes represent the points where the orbit of the Moon crosses the ecliptic (the apparent orbit of the Sun around the Earth, but actually the orbital plane of the Earth around the Sun). Whenever there is a lunation (New or Full Moon) within 18°31’ of the Nodes, the Sun, Moon and Earth are not only lining up by longitude (sign) but also by declination, and the Moon’s shadow will at least partially block the Sun (in a Solar Eclipse) or the Earth’s Shadow will block the Sun’s light from reaching the Moon (in a Lunar Eclipse).
Let’s talk about interpreting eclipses in general first, and then move on to the specifics. Eclipses are the single most significant astrological events, and their effects can be felt for up to six months at a time (or from one eclipse cycle until the next eclipse cycle). Even when an eclipse does not contact personal planets in our charts, eclipses are always significant. Robert Jansky says that eclipses represent areas of crisis; the houses in which the eclipses fall in our charts represent areas of life that will receive the most focus over the next few months, and that will frequently undergo some sort of a change.
In a Solar Eclipse, the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth, temporarily blocking out the light of the Sun. On an interpretive level, a Solar Eclipse represents the past, our unconscious nature (the Moon) overtaking and overshadowing our conscious expression of self (the Sun). More than this, what we “see” is the dark, hidden side of the Moon. In a Solar Eclipse we are forced to look at our shadow self, to acknowledge it and recognize it or else it will consume us.
Solar Eclipses tend to relate to sudden events that disrupt our normal conscious functioning; they are the crisis that seems to come out of nowhere and that suddenly demands all of our conscious attention and focus. We must learn to accept that the source of these crises, however external it may appear, is actually our own unconscious and subconscious. Whatever situations that arise as a result of a Solar Eclipse, in addition to their manifest reality, are truly projections of our shadow self, of our fears, of our secrets, and of our demons. By acknowledging and accepting these parts of ourselves, we can help to keep them from disrupting our lives periodically. (The important lesson is that we must accept and acknowledge our shadow self rather than deny and ignore it.)
In a Lunar Eclipse, on the other hand, the Earth moves between the Sun and the Moon at the Full Moon, casting a shadow on the Moon at the moment of the Full Moon and blocking the Sun’s Light from reflecting on the Moon. Lunar Eclipses are a significant disruption of the lunar cycle.
They represent opportunities to break out of our current cycles and move on to a different level. The window of opportunity here is rather brief, and we have to act on it consciously, but Lunar Eclipses provide an opportunity to make a kind of evolutionary leap, to demonstrate a certain degree of insight and proficiency in whatever our current lesson may be, and to be allowed to move on to the next phase without having to take the long way around as it were. Please remember that we are not in a race and that taking advantage of these opportunities does not make one a better person or “more spiritual” or “more highly evolved”.
In any event, a Lunar Eclipse can make us more aware of our cycles and patterns, as well as of our unconscious motivations. When the cycle isn’t allowed to complete, when the Earth’s Shadow blocks out the light of the Sun, we experience the same type of disorientation as we do when we’re doing something routine and not thinking about it and are suddenly interrupted in the middle of it. We can either catch ourselves and decide to take a different course of action, or else we can try and continue what it was that we were doing; but if we try and complete the cycle, it is with a new awareness: suddenly we have to think about what we’re doing a bit more.
Now, what happens when an Eclipse makes an aspect to a personal planet? First of all, the general rule that Eclipses represent crisis, focus and change applies. If an eclipse makes a close aspect to a planet in your chart, that planet is going to be involved in the changes and activities of the eclipses. In particular if an eclipse is conjunct a planet in your chart, then the function of that planet will be tied in with your personal experience of the eclipse.
ON YOUR MARK...GET SET..
THIS ECLIPSE PERIOD DURING AUGUST HAS HIGH ENERGY CHANGES FOR YOU!
Another excellent astro info from Tania Gabrielle:-
It could be a new career direction you hadn’t considered, a new source of financial flow, or another opportunity that you haven’t even imagined yet!
Right now and through August...
• Uranus really wants you to be FLEXIBLE.
• Saturn wants you to TRUST in the divine order.
• The North Node asks that you listen to where the energy is flowing – it is a NEW direction.
When you set your intentions, give thanks what you are asking to implement, its equivalent, or something better. Then just let go, flowing with the breeze and embracing the large and small miracles coming your way.
The major emphasis on LEO ensures that your light will SHINE! No more hiding!
During this powerful coming eclipse cycle it will be important for you to leverage positive codes that supports abundance, opportunities and loving partnerships.
Not all numbers are fortunate - many numbers have the opposite impact – they emit difficult vibrations and can attract strife in the home, division in your relationships, and obstruct the progress of financial freedom.
For example, a positive address number elevates and enhances your life. It holds the space for prosperity to flourish.
But a challenging address attracts obstacles into every part of your life.
The truth is…
• The address of your home (and where you work) really matters.
• The phone number you use affects what kind of calls you receive!
• The hotel rooms and airline seats you inhabit impact your trip or vacation.
• The price-points you use to sell your services will attract or repel sales.
• The license plate on your car impacts all experiences in that vehicle.
Imagine knowing the secret of abundance numbers, particularly how to use them in your daily life… being able to easily leverage prosperity on a daily basis with fortunate frequencies!
Every number resonates to a unique frequency… but only SOME are fortunate!
