August is a transition month which will release and objectify all the reorientations we've been thinking about since the beginning of the year. If you've been feeling held off, burdened or frustrated, you should notice a clear change of energy. Be adaptable, embrace new connections, stay in the flow, and you'll make the most of the period.
Mars is entering Sagittarius on August 2nd, stimulating new goals and a more optimistic vision after a few months of gloom. Time to move forward with your projects, fight for what you believe in or go on an adventure. If this is not enough to get you moving, a shift of energy happens on August 13th: Saturn is turning direct, bringing clues on what confines or limits us (hint: it has to do with beliefs) and lifting obstacles that might have been there since March. Also on the 13th, Uranus is quincunx to Jupiter, this is an energy of adjustment, rearranging things so we can feel fulfilled in our social roles. Saturn conjunct Mars on the 24th can be a new positioning in some area of life or someone throwing up roadblocks, if so take it as a sign that you might not be acting authentically. Lots of very creative energy during the last few days of the month should help us prepare for new horizons.
