If you have had any issues with your partner or any close relationship during the past few months, August is the time for it to end. With the Mercury and Sun conjunction that happened on the last day of July in your 7th house, you will be blessed with celestial mediation. Listening and understanding will come easier regarding your relationships, putting you in a comfortable spot to heal any power imbalances in your love or social life. There is nothing more satisfying than having someone get what you mean right away without the need for further clarification. This month will be an easy-going month where, despite your Aquarian eccentrics, you will be much more relatable in the eyes of your loved ones. With the Sun opposing your Natal Sun sign, you will have the space to do what you gotta do without the need for justification.
Adding to this solar vigor, Mars will be transiting through the sign of Virgo in your 8th house all month long. This can be a slightly uncomfortable transit as your frugality and a need to spend come clashing against one another. Mars in the 8th house becomes impulsive and disregards the Virgoan systematic approach to finances. Alternatively, this could also symbolize somebody in your life who is an overspender (possibly your partner if you have one). You might feel the need to cover up their slack with your tendency to want money matters to never be a problem. In this case, it is important to know when to let somebody deal with the consequences of their actions, even if you will end up being inconvenienced by their lack of discipline. Some people only learn by making their own mistakes, and if you keep attempting to fix these people’s errors, they will never learn. The 8th house also deals with recovery, and a Mars transit might cause a reckless need to get back to your tasks before you are fully healed. Either way, this transit is about taking a step back, even if you do not feel like it.
Another major influence from Mars is the square it will make with the Lunar nodes from the 7th to the 14th. Last September, we started a new nodal cycle as the North Node entered the sign of Gemini. This happened in your 5th house, which means you might have felt a significant shift in the way you had to deal with your self-expression. This Leo season will be a pivotal moment for that development as the Sun in Leo brings our awareness to our identity and how we are presenting ourselves. Especially with the node in Gemini, you might have been challenged to take your creative ideas out of your head and into the paper. This Mars square transit will push you even further to assert your voice and your right to have a fulfilling and joyful life. You must be careful not to get carried away with all this potency Mars brings to the table. Yet, don’t be afraid of stepping into your inner warrior and chasing the joy and excitement you know you deserve. Your creativity is your only limit.
The New Moon in Leo happening in your 7th house will likely get you feeling sexy and desired. For the single Aquarius, this is an excellent time to go on a date as you will be standing out from the crowd. On the other hand, the Aquarius who are already in a relationship will be driving their partners crazy as you become almost irresistible during this lunation. This sounds all good and fun, but there is something that you should keep in mind. During this New Moon, Uranus, who is approaching half of a 7-year Taurian cycle, will be squaring the moon in your 4th house. The transit has likely been slowly chipping away at transforming your living situation. If it is still currently unstable, a lot of the stress from a move, mortgage, or a family member staying over for a while could hamper the sensual atmosphere that this moon is bringing. This could trigger your relationship’s adventurous explorations, which could prove to be exciting, but be careful not to go too wild.
The monthly Full Moon will be happening in your own sign allowing you to showcase your personality’s best traits. At this time, you may feel invigorated. If you have been sick or dealing with any bodily dysfunction, this could signify a conclusion to your troubles or at least a breath of fresh air. One thing that is important to be aware of, though, is your issues with idealism. Though the Full Moon is the trigger for many endings and transformations, you have to exercise patience and avoid being too fixated on what is not going according to your plans. Letting go is called for here as a Saturnian Full Moon calls for patience as the good things in life come with time. Be thankful for the progress you made and for your greatness. Life keeps going on, and there’s always time to polish up the little kinks in your plans. You may be afraid people can see all your mistakes, but it’s really all in your head.
