This is a month without great aspects between the transiting planets. Most notably, we have all the social (Jupiter and Saturn) and transpersonal (Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto) planets in retrograde motion. This configuration indicates that we are going through a review period at a collective level, reviving situations that we have already seen in recent months, but without great news. August it’s a time where we deal with our personal reality.

August 2022 Most important transits

August 4, 2022 – Mercury in Virgo

In August, our mental energy puts the emphasis on observing and identifying what needs improvement. This is a pragmatic month and we dedicate ourselves to everyday life with greater attention.

For Virgo, Capricorn, Taurus, Scorpio, and Cancer this is a good month to put an order in daily practical matters and you can experience clarity and mental serenity.

For Gemini, Sagittarius, and Pisces, situations may occur where we feel criticized for our “lack of attention”. Paying attention to details can be beneficial at this time.

August 11, 2022 – Venus in Leo

When Venus transits Leo it makes us want to have a good time, laugh, play and enjoy life. We look for sunlight and appreciate what makes us feel creative.

For Leo, Sagittarius, Aries, Libra, and Gemini, this month comes with pleasant moments, happiness, and satisfaction.

For Scorpio, Aquarius and Taurus, it is a good time to observe the reluctance to accept that life also includes joy for its own sake. And allow, for this time, the sunlight to be enough to make you smile.

August 11, 2022 – Full Moon in Aquarius – 19 degrees 21′

This is a good time to objectively observe the results of the plans we started 6 months ago. The Full Moon in Aquarius provides the necessary emotional detachment to contemplate our subjective reality in a more “scientific” way. What are the plans for the future that we need to set aside because they are no longer relevant? How satisfied are we with respect to our personal aspirations? The light of the Full Moon in Aquarius illuminates the ideological patterns that we follow, the emotional nourishment that we receive from the friendships and groups with which we share ideals. It also allows us to strongly feel to what extent we feel we belong (or not) to our social circle. This allows us to explore what we really need to feel “at home”.

August 20, 2022 – Mars in Gemini

The transit of Mars in Gemins puts the emphasis on movement, letting ourselves be carried away by curiosity and the desire to socialize. Action is taken through the use of words. We seek information and disseminate it with passion. Debate time.

For Gemini, Libra, Aquarius, Leo and Aries, the action becomes more agile thanks to great flexibility and speed. It’s a good time to asset ourselves verbally.

For Virgo, Pisces and Sagittarius, this is a month of great dispersion where it may be difficult to act towards a certain goal, creating some frustration. It is good to use this month to inform yourself and ask questions instead of taking action.

August 22, 2022 – Sun in Virgo

Happy birthday, Virgos!

August 24, 2022 – Uranus Retrograde in Taurus – 18 degrees 55′

Uranus is retrograde again in Taurus and will remain so for the rest of the year. This transit is felt more on a collective level than a personal one, unless it makes an aspect to one of our personal planets. At a social level, situations can occur that we have already experienced, especially with regard to finances. Certain economic-related innovation projects are reversed. The material destabilization can be seen as “detention” because it is necessary to review the changes that have occurred in recent times, or certain financial ups and downs can be repeated that highlight ideological failures at the economic level.

On a personal level, for Taurus, Scorpio, Leo and Aquarius (especially those with personal planets between 15 and 20 degrees of these signs), the internal tension that has been felt in recent months may decrease. Uranus in Taurus indicates a need for personal renewal. For the Fixed signs, this transit is a good opportunity to listen to oneself and pay attention to the need to make external changes in our lives, since they indicate the need to let go of old internal structures that have become obsolete.

For Virgo, Capricorn, Cancer and Pisces, (especially those with personal planets between 15 and 20 degrees of these signs), the transit of Uranus in Taurus signals a time of personal renewal and the discovery of unique aspects of ourselves that may surprise us. Retrograde Uranus can bring surprising situations from the past that invite us to do something out of the ordinary, as well as innovation and changes in routine.

August 25, 2022 – Mercury in Libra

When Mercury transits Libra, the emphasis is on “listening to the other”, reaching agreements and the use of diplomacy. Communication becomes more “gallant”, charming.

For Libra, Aquarius, Gemini, Leo, and Sagittarius, this transit translates into pleasant conversations, the ability to get along with others, and a clear and balanced mind.

For Capricorn, Cancer and Aries, this transit invites them to learn to listen to the other and take into account other points of view.

August 27, 2022 – New Moon in Virgo

The New Moon in Virgo is a time to sow the seeds of our personal development. What would you like to improve about yourself or your life? What do you want to perfect? What are the new habits that you would like to acquire? With the New Moon in Virgo we have the opportunity to start a personal improvement project that will be developed over the next 6 months.

August 29, 2022 – North Node semi-sextile Chiron – 15 degrees 44′ (Taurus – Aries)

This aspect may indicate the acquisition of new personal values that enrich us in some way or another as a result of the pain of not being able to fully express our sense of identity.

Ongoing Transits

Jupiter Retrograde in Aries – 8 degrees 42′ to 6 degrees 58′

Jupiter is slowly turning back towards Pisces. In Aries, the energy of the warrior has been intensified. In retrograde movement we can expect this energy to decrease, while allowing us to re-experience actions that we have already taken before, to learn from them.

The Jupiter retrograde period will end in Pisces when Jupiter makes its final conjunction with Neptune once again. Now we have the opportunity to relive situations from the past where we can see if our impulses are aligned with what really inspires us or not.
