Embracing a New Relationship Oriented Mindset
It’s time for things to start moving, Aquarius! As the month kicks off, a wild and radical Full Moon in your sign kicks energy up more than a few notches. With the Moon in your sign and your ruling Uranus playing a major role in the story, there is no doubt that events are going to start happening quickly. Be ready to make an important decision—and perhaps feel boxed in as you make your final call! Your house of relationships will also get a TON of your attention. New alliances are likely going to start coming your way. Get in the mindset of making some new connections. Also be prepared for a little friction to be coming out of people you’re closely connected with.
Your ruling Uranus will also make his annual move retrograde this month, stirring energy on your side of the street. Some unexpected surprises or revelations may be presented mid-month as a result. With a few planets opposing your sign in the coming weeks, you’re going to be in a mode to do things. Prepare to be on your toes.
The main focal point, however, will be your connections with others, and perhaps even open enemies. As the Sun travels through your 7th house of close and personal partnerships, relationships are going to be your jam in the coming weeks. You’re in the process of becoming more aware of your place within these types of close nit relationships. This is also a good period to seek out the opinions of others or gain professional advice of any type if you need to do so. Whatever you’re doing this month, will certainly involve another person. A new chapter, with an important partnership, may begin mid-month under the August New Moon.

On August 2 the Sun will be getting some uncomfortable downloads from your ruling Uranus. A new need to step outside of your “norm” may be calling, but something unsettling may come along with it.

Mercury finally makes a sign change on August 4 and begins to influence the same area the Sun is influencing – your house of partnerships & relationships. I’d expect some new happenings to start kicking up in this area, as a result! Mars will also be putting some pressure on Jupiter at the same time, possibly creating some luck, strength and courage to keep forging ahead.
On August 7, Venus also makes an important sign change (something she hasn’t done since April!) It’s time for your daily routines and living/working environment to start getting the planet of love’s attention, with her travels through cozy Cancer. Venus will help you on the work scene, particularly with co-workers. Her influence will be in play for most of the month and help support you in all your daily routines (both work and personal). The only caveat is that later in the month (beginning on Aug 25), she’ll go up against Jupiter, Pluto & ultimately Saturn (in early September). Ouch! Check out my Hot Spot Dates below for the ins & outs.
High energy comes to your door between August 10-11. Communication guru Mercury will create mixed messages as he battles your ruling Uranus. Watch for important insights & turning points on Aug 11, with a Quarter Moon in the sign of the bull (aka: Taurus).
On August 15, your ruling Uranus (the planet that likes to SHAKE things UP) stations retrograde! It’s time for ou to get shaken … not stirred.

Serious plans are looking to be made and details looking to be uncovered as the sign of Virgo begins to hit the scene! On August 19, communicator Mercury enters this sign and then the Sun follows on August 22. This will start putting new attention into themes surrounding your joint resources and help from others.
Expect a high energy day on August 25, with a Quarter Moon and Mercury getting some electric shocks from your ruling Uranus. An opportunity to think outside the box will surround you. Be ready to roll with the unexpected. Venus will also come into some opposition with Jupiter, creating temptations that aren’t necessarily based in reality.
Some magic sprinkles come onto the scene on August 27, with mystical Neptune forming a magical trine with your Venus. A silver lining may surface on the hard reality of situations.
Watch for intensity as the month of August closes out. On August 30, Venus (operating in your house of partnerships) will come head to head with powerhouse Pluto in an opposition. This may create tension, as well as disconnects in your needs vs. those of others.
**Special Note: Mars goes retrograde next month, beginning on September 9 …. get all the details below and know what to expect!
This important Full Moon takes place in in YOUR sign— which means that you will feel its energy more than some of the other signs. The energy will highlight the area of your astrology that connects to your personal identity. It reveals new truths about who you are and how you want to make your stamp on the world. As a result of this building energy, you might feel like putting yourself more “out there” than usual. This is a Full Moon that pushes to you to reveal who you truly are.
With that being said, your need to interact with others will also come into the picture. A balancing act between what you want and what others are wanting from you might come into play. With your opposite sign’s energy now in play, you might feel an intense pull in opposite directions. Energy is likely centering around relationships and how to balance others needs with your own. Keep an open eye because relationships and your place within them are important here.
This Full Moon is a personal one for you but it can also help to put yourself out there—or make a mark if you’re looking to take a leap. Gaining new awareness on relationships and how you’re affected by them could also become a point of introspection. A recently formed relationship may come to a point now where you can decide if you’re in it for the long haul – or not. You could also gain new clarity on an existing relationship – love or business.
You may also have recently decided to make some changes for YOU and this Full Moon will help you to see how these changes are taking effect. You can think back 6 months to what you were involved in at that time to gain further clues for yourself on what precisely in your life is wrapping up now – or coming to a new level.
This month’s New Moon energy will highlight the area of your astrology connected to relationships and partnerships. It’s time to put a great focus or begin something new with an important alliance.
There could be a big focus on your marriage partner, business alliances or someone you are very closely aligned with. Something new with them is beginning and your relationship with them becomes visible. There could be some sort of public display involving your relationship or people end up looking at you together – more than usual. If you own a business or seek out people to buy your services this New Moon – as well as a good portion of this month – are very good for attracting clientele.
Given that we all have many sign’s influences running through us, it’s always important to look at the whole range of planetary aspects taking place. Our personal astrology charts usually contain the influences of many signs. For you personally Aquarius, it’s important to make special note of what Uranus (your ruling planet) is up to.
