August Astrological Happenings
August is probably the peak month of the entire year. There is a strong energy of change, and a lot of intense and volatile energy too. This is a month of endings and new beginnings. There are two recent New Moons in Leo. One that has passed on July, 27, 2017. And the second one this upcoming that is to take place on August 21, 2017. Remember that New Moons are about beginnings, and Lunar Eclipses are about endings.
We also have many Planets Retrograde such as Saturn in Sagittarius, Pluto in Capricorn, Neptune and Chiron in Pisces. Mercury will move Retrograde in Virgo on August 12, 2017. And on September 5, 2017 Mercury moves Retrograde in Leo.
There will be a partial Lunar Eclipse occurring on August 7, 2017 at 2:00 P.M. Eastern Standard Time, and 7:00 P.M. UK time. The effects of Eclipses can last for approximately six months. This will be the first of two Eclipses that will take place in August 2017.
South Node & North Node
A Eclipse is always either on the North Node, or on the South Node of the Moon. This current one is on the South Node. This South Node is about releasing, and letting go of things. But, this is less about letting go o,f and more about finding a way to share your humanitarianism with the people, community and the world.
This particular Eclipse is when the Earth moves in-between the Sun and the Moon. A shadow is cast over the Moon. It’s not fully darkened because it’s a Partial Lunar Eclipse. This is also a Full Moon. But the only difference here is that the Earth is interfering.
The Sun is in Leo and shines its light upon the Moon which is in Aquarius. So here we are with a Full Moon in Aquarius. This Eclipse Full Moon will affect us in a way that it will makes us feel like helping other people.
The Sun in Leo is fun loving, energized, and Confident. Remember that Astrology is based on the seasons. Leo capulates summer. The Sun is sending this confident fiery energy towards the Moon while the Moon is in Aquarius.
The Moon is the sign of Aquarius brings out the humanitarian, renders us to be of service, helping other people, giving to others, being intellectual, being the thinker, coming up with creative ideas, scientific breakthroughs, and conjuring up new inventions. Lots of Aquarian’s have to have the latest technology.
