Astro Forecast {August 2017}
By: Nancy

      A lot of attention is being given to the eclipse of Aug 21, but there will be in fact two eclipses in August. The first, a partial eclipse of the full moon of August 7, may be used to prepare for the total eclipse.

     Mars is in Leo close to the sun during both and will give us all extra energy and the willingness to act. Everyone (but fires signs, Aries,Leo, and Sagittarius) needs to be careful of acting on impulse. That energy is there to be used though, and with the Sun trining Saturn, we are unafraid of hard work and won't lack follow through. Mercury opposite Neptune means we can use our intuition to speak in a way that charms others. If you are careful that you aren't being swayed by alluring deceptions of less truthful people appealing to our better natures, you should be able to leap into projects that the last few months have seen you putting off.

     The total eclipse has been receiving much media attention. On Aug. 21 the Leo New Moon will be close to Mars in Leo on one side and Mercury in Virgo on the other. Expect projects you start now to start with fireworks but to have a momentum that carries them through. People will be more willing to express things out loud but are willing to act on these expressions, and to act quickly. Venus in an uncomfortable aspect with Jupiter and Neptune means your desire to put something bluntly may make what you say unclear.

     The asteroid Ceres is close by so take your time and talk it through over a meal. Check that your intuitions are grounded in reality and remember right now actions really do speak louder than words. In general, this new moon eclipse has fire (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) rushing to "Get it done!" and trying to get everyone else to get it done too. Water (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) is more reliant than ever on charm, intuition, and empathy. Earth (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) may find itself using a bit of subterfuge to get things done. And Air (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius), though feeling open and generous, may be much blunter than usual.

     Take some time to pick a project to begin around this eclipse; you will have the energy to see it through!
