August 2021 indeed has some significant lifetime gifts to give you. The month starts with a Sun and Mercury conjunction in Leo. This transit will happen on your 8th house, signifying that it is time to investigate the spiritual side of life instead of the material world. As a Capricorn, you do best in earthly matters. You are grounded and driven, but whether you recognize it or not, there are ethereal forces that play a huge role in everybody’s life. Diving deep and exploring these forces will put you in an advantageous position of merging spiritual wisdom with earthly acumen. The 8th house has a mysterious tinge to it. If you don’t pay close attention, you might just miss it. Now, that’s not to say that this house is completely detached from reality. This is also the place that deals with taxes and debt—monetary or otherwise. Mercury is an industrious merchant, and it will aid you in the area of negotiation. Use it wisely.
Mars in Virgo will transit through your 9th house throughout the whole month, in alignment with this potential to merge the world of spirit and physicality. This will broaden your horizons by inching you to perfect all the skills you are already good at. This will introduce a new way to take action that is systematic and well informed. You might feel more curious, wanting more contact with people around you, especially those of different backgrounds or with different philosophies of life. You could even interact with people abroad, making your world feel much more expansive. Feel free to explore alternate religions, philosophies, and even different languages. Mars will give you the drive to keep up with an insatiable intellect. There is a high chance of traveling or exploring a new place close by you have never been to before. August is a month of exploration.
Moreover, Mars will be interacting with another cycle as it goes square with the North Node in your 6th house. The Node has been transiting through this house since September of last year. This is a longer cycle ending later in December, but this Mars transit could bear significant importance. Chances are, since the beginning of this cycle, your health has been occupying a lot of your attention. You might have started a new diet, workout practice, or meditation practice. This assiduity will prove extremely beneficial in the long run, as this form of discipline is easily transferrable to all areas of your life. Be mindful of the Mars influence, however, as it may push you past your breaking point. Even self-care can be overdone, and if you go at it too hard, you may burn out, and the whole process will become unsustainable. Be careful with injuries, especially if you practice any sports or are a little bit of a gym fanatic.
However, on a good note, this also a reminder that anything can be achieved if you use your energy efficiently!
On August 8th, the New Moon in Leo will be squaring Uranus, who has been transiting your 5th house for the last few years. Uranus in Taurus makes for unorthodox beauty and eccentricity. This might bring out even more of the innovative Renaissance-man (or woman) within you. You can let your imagination go wild. Use this opportunity to pursue any endeavour you have been interested in but weren’t sure if you had it in you to go all the way. There may be a slight sense of instability in your emotional body, though. This New Moon is a good time to cry —out of sadness or happiness. Let your emotions flow to keep your cup empty for all the joy the world has to offer. The 8th house’s influence may also come for some surprising revelations. Be gentle, and give yourself time to assimilate the revelations this transit might make you realize. I know striking a balance between gentle and wild may be a bit of a challenge, but you won’t know if you can do it until you try it.
The month comes to a close with the New Moon in Aquarius happening in your 2nd house, giving you a well-deserved break from all this hard work. There will be tangible rewards coming your way at this time. Still, Aquarius will get you rethinking your relationship with your belongings. This sign’s Saturnian influence calls attention to the balance between what you have and what others lack. An excellent way to celebrate and show gratitude is by sharing that same feeling with others. Aquarius asks you to invest what you earn back into the world to keep the flow of abundance. This doesn’t just mean money. Good moments are also a form of currency in the eyes of the Universe. Ask yourself how you can make people feel the triumph of achieving your goals. You may even find a way to earn more for yourself by helping others. Look at alternative ways to attract wealth with your talents. Remember you have full control over how this will unfold, be versatile. The Universe will support you no matter what.
