A new moon in your goals house could see you launch a new project or attend a social event. A full moon in your love zone could bring a romantic, creative, or child-related matter to a head. The month’s second new moon falls in your closure house, encouraging you to rest and let go.


The month begins with a new moon in your hopes and dream sector on August 1st, which could see you launch a goal, attend a social function, or achieve a long-held dream!

The moon has some very good aspects, given that it will conjunct Venus (your ruler!) and Mars, and trine Jupiter in your communication house. August 7th, 8th, and 21st are especially great days, when the Sun, Venus, and then Mercury in your career house will trine Jupiter in your communication sector. August 8th is especially lucky for you, when good luck Jupiter makes a perfect 180 degree trine to your ruler, Venus! 

August 14th is also divine, when Venus and the Sun will conjoin in your goals house. This is a great day to get together with friends!

The only trouble with the new moon is that Uranus will square it from your financial zone, so it's possible that whatever comes up proves expensive or challenging. A friend may also need your help.  

Tricky days include August 2nd, when Venus (your ruler) in your goals house squares Uranus in your financial zone, and August 16th, when Mercury does the same. 

Luckily, on August 11th, Jupiter will go direct in your communication house, so a matter regarding a sibling, vehicle, or commitment may soon become more clear. 

Ironically, however, that same day (Aug 11th) sees Uranus go retrograde in your financial zone. Uranus will not go direct again until January 2020! During this time you may review or revise a financial matter. If Uranus aspected a planet or point in your natal chart over the last few months, it will again sometime over the coming months. Look to see what house that planet rules for clues. 

August 15th then sees a full moon in your love sector, possibly bringing a romantic, creative, or child-related matter to a head. Luckily, this moon will sextile lucky Jupiter in your communication house, so it's possible you meet a new love interest, complete a creative project, or discover a pregnancy!

One thing to note is that the moon will oppose Venus (your ruler) and Mars in your goals house, so you may feel torn between group needs and personal desires. 

As the month continues, planets move into Virgo and your 12th house of closure, encouraging you to clean, detox, and recharge. On August 24th, Venus (your ruler) will conjunct Mars in your closure house, and then go on to trine Uranus in your financial zone on August 26th. Mars will make the same trine to Uranus on August 28th, and it will be the Sun's turn on August 29th. These are all great days to let go of old projects and situations in preparation for new beginnings next month. 

August 30th actually sees the new moon in your closure sector (that's right- 3 moons this month!), and she's a lovely one! This moon will conjunct Mercury, Venus (your ruler), and Mars, and trine Saturn in your home zone, as well as Uranus in your financial sector. She'll also make a lovely sextile to the North Node in your 10th house of career. 

You may clean house, move, or address a medical issue this month. You may also leave a job or simply decide to do some spring cleaning. Focus on resting, recharging, and Marie Kondo'ing this month. Next month will bring more exciting times for you. 

The only trouble with this moon is that it will square Jupiter in your communication house, and oppose Neptune in your work and health zone. You may feel sick this month or have trouble with your car, so make sure to eat your vitamins, hydrate, rest, and do any maintenance that needs to be done on your vehicles. If you're traveling, be ready with a Plan B.
