August Astrology Recap: Embracing Growth and Breakthroughs

August was a month of introspection and reevaluation, with six planets in retrograde. As we navigated the cosmic energies, it was important to find balance between individualism and being part of a team. Let's dive into the key astrological events of August and how they influenced our lives.

The Full Moon in Aquarius on August 1st highlighted the dynamic between our personal desires and our role within the community. This energy encouraged us to strike a balance between nurturing ourselves and being there for others. It was essential to be mindful of selfishness and its impact on our relationships. Additionally, the square to Jupiter brought intense realizations and epiphanies, so it was best to allow things to settle before reacting.

On August 16th, the New Moon in Leo invited us to reconnect with our inner child and rediscover our optimism for life. While we craved positive attention and recognition from our social circles, this moon phase may have also triggered underlying insecurities. It was crucial to remember that we could only control ourselves and how we used our power. Chaos and explosive emotions may have arisen, especially as Uranus squared the New Moon. We may have witnessed attention-seeking conflicts in the media, but it was important to stay grounded.

As the Sun entered Virgo on August 23rd, practicality and organization took center stage. This period encouraged us to get organized and set ourselves up for success, both professionally and at home. However, we had to be mindful of self-criticism, which may have been more prevalent than usual. Humility was emphasized, prompting us to slow down and pay attention to the details. It was essential to view this as an opportunity for growth rather than punishment.

Mercury went retrograde in Virgo on August 23rd until September 1st, urging us to be mindful of our communication. Misunderstandings were likely, so it was crucial to be concise and thoughtful in our interactions. This retrograde period may have also brought up past decisions or memories for analysis. It was an ideal time to review recent work and discover new approaches. However, perfectionism should have been avoided, as it could hinder progress.

Mars entered Libra on August 27th, promoting fairness and justice. We strived to be advocates for equality and worked towards common goals. However, the indecisiveness of Libra energy may have influenced our perspective, making it important to communicate with grace and avoid passive-aggressiveness.

Uranus went retrograde in Taurus on August 28th, prompting us to examine what held us back from living authentically. This internal journey may have disrupted our comfort zones, especially in areas related to food, beauty, and money. While we may have felt less rebellious during this retrograde period, the shift in energy could have created tension until we acclimatized to the directional change.

The Full Moon in Pisces on August 30th/31st challenged us to find balance between practicality and spirituality. It was important not to abandon either end of the spectrum, as it would have led to chaos or unbearable order. This Full Moon may have brought tough decisions, reality checks, or pressure to make changes. It was crucial to approach these challenges with strength and strategy, avoiding fear-based actions.

In addition to these astrological events, several planets and asteroids were retrograde, including Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, and Chiron. These retrogrades provided an opportunity to align our internal perspective with our practical reality. However, they may have also brought chaos, misunderstandings, and surprises. It was essential to navigate these energies with awareness and mindfulness.

Overall, August offered opportunities for growth and breakthroughs if we approached them with proper awareness. We embraced the introspective energies and used them to align our actions with our true desires.

Thank you as always for being here! Until next time xx
