AUGUST OVERVIEW

LUNATIONS

This FULL MOON is in Pisces and occurs on September 2, 2020 at 01:21:55 AM. The Moon opposes the Virgo Sun and forms a sweet sextile to retrograde Uranus in Taurus. Envision what you desire to manifest knowing that the potential is there, but it may take time. Do not jump but move forward with all deliberate speed!

This NEW MOON finds the Lights in Virgo and in double square to the Dragon. But also, a combined triple trine to Jupiter Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn! Socialization and travel will still be challenging with many specific details. The majority will cooperate. Not all those in positions of power will agree. This will be a bit dramatic due to the fact this is an election year. Be ready!

SEPTEMBER RETROGRADE STATIONS AND SHIFTS

Mars Stations Retrograde In Aries

On September 9, 2020, Mars stations retrograde in Aries and remains so until November 13, 2020 at 07:36 PM. Many decisions you have made may need to be re-considered at this time. If well aspected in your chart it may afford you more patience. If afflicted, it may cause frustration. Know that Aries is both the sign of the ram and the sign of the Lamb. You choose how you react or respond to all that influences your life.

Jupiter Stations Direct In Capricorn!

Jupiter stations direct on September 12, 2020 at 08:41PM. Government, laws and referendums have been under review. Now the wheels will begin to slowly forward and the research and resources you have re-examined can begin to bless you. Do still implement a level of caution and integrity in all of your dealings.

Saturn Stations Direct In Capricorn!

Saturn stations direct in Capricorn on September 29, 2020 at 01:11AM. AGAIN, government, laws, elections and referendums have been being re-evaluated and have experienced a close scrutiny. Different government offices, libraries and schools will begin to function with a few less restrictions. Caution is still advised as Mars will be in retrograde and in square to Saturn which moves much more slowly.

Uranus Stations Retrograde in Taurus!

On August 14, 2020 at 10:26AM EDST, Uranus stations retrograde in Taurus and remains so until January 13 at 04:36 AM EST! The Fixed Earth of our existence is under re-construction in this cycle. Abandoned buildings, historical settings, roadways, and bridges will be attended to if they serve a purpose. Essential National forests and endangered species will seek to be preserved. Our food, how we grow it, harvest it, and ingest it will be under close scrutiny. The manner in which we handle our finances will also be re-evaluated.

Neptune Retrograde in Pisces!

On June 23, 2020 at 0.32 am, Neptune stationed retrograde in Pisces and remains so until November 28, 2020 at 07:37PM EST. There is both a spiritual and a nebulous nature to this energy. History will loom large but those who are wise and understand the passages of time will come forth to lead us. Deception can also be uncovered in this cycle. Stay alert!

Pluto Still In Retrograde Until October 4, 2020

The Capricorn parade continues with these three planets and we return to go over covered ground with great care. Moving forward does need to be slow but sure in this cycle. The emphasis is on preservation versus motivation. Patience is an imperative in this cycle.
