Horoscopes for August 2018

Monthly Horoscope – August 2018

Aries 21st March – 20th April

Long term goals appear to be in the spot light this month.  You may have to review your plans and make some adjustments to achieve what you need to. By the end of the month any hold ups should start to fade away, leaving you free to proceed with certainty.

Taurus 20th April – 21st May

You may have been caught up in lots of detail recently, but this month is a good time to step back and be objective about your responsibilities. Colleagues are likely to be in a co-operative mood and happy to help you out.  This would give you the chance to relax and enjoy working with others.

Gemini 21stMay – 21st June

You have probably been bandying ideas around and discussing plans for a creative project. These may be quite fluid at the beginning of the month. However, around the solar eclipse on 11th August you should settle on a plan of action. A week later, your ruling planet Mercury begins to move forward, so go for what you want!

Cancer 22nd June -22nd July

Money issues could come to light around the solar eclipse on August 11th. You may need to decide on your priorities and once you have, speak up and make your position clear to others. Stand firm and do not be swayed, but remember that a little tact can go a long way to helping you get what you need.

Leo 22nd July- 21st August

On August 11th there is a solar eclipse in your sign so a new phase is on its way for you. As with all things new, this will involve challenges, but a flexible and open minded approach should make things easier.  Discussions should be very rewarding, listen to your friends, some of their interesting ideas may just give you the inspiration you need.

 Virgo 21st August- 21st September

At the beginning the month, make time to spoil yourself for a change. Some much needed pampering could really help you to recharge your batteries. Around the full moon on the 26th others can be a bit over emotional, offer tea and sympathy by all means, but don’t get caught up in the drama!

Libra 21st September- 21st October

You look to be popular this month as Venus, planet of love and attraction moves into Libra so all you have to do is wait for the fun to begin. When it comes to relationships, romance could be on the cards and for those of you already coupled up; partners may surprise you, in a good way!

 Scorpio 21st October- 21st November

The solar eclipse on August 11th falls in your career zone suggesting positive new beginnings work wise. This will boost your confidence and open up creative opportunities for you. It is time to take stock and enjoy the rewards of all your efforts.

 Sagittarius 21st November- 21st December

A new opportunity to expand your horizons could appear around the solar eclipse on August 11th. You are likely to have the chance to express yourself and get yourself seen.  A little self belief can go a long way; put your money where your mouth is and make the most of it!

 Capricorn 21st December – 20th January

You should be more energetic than you have been recently. So this is a good time to tackle half finished projects that have been hanging around for a while. You may want to put a new twist on your original plans and will feel a sense of a job well done once they are completed.

 Aquarius 20th January – 18th February

It looks like there may be changes on the domestic front for you and everything can feel quite up in the air. By the end of the month the way ahead should become clearer. Don’t push too hard, changes take time. If others are being difficult, try seeing things from their point of view, you may be surprised with the solutions they offer.

 Pisces 19th February – 20th March

Have your thoughts been drifting off to distant shores?  Well, now is a good time to dust down your suitcase! Whether you are hoping to soak up a new culture or the sun, do what you do best; go with the flow. Getting away from it all will be fun and you are bound to discover something new and inspiring.

Gemini 21stMay – 21st June

Money matters look to be in the spot light.  Using your ingenuity to think up some creative ways to boost your finances should pay off, particularly if you team up with another person. As a result of this you could be quite busy, but all the effort should be worthwhile.

Cancer 22nd June -22nd July

Have you have been feeling a bit held back recently? The solar eclipse on the 13th is in your sign, bringing positive change. Give your imagination free rein; it is time to think big and venture beyond your comfort zone.

Virgo 21st August- 21st September

Sagittarius 21st November- 21st December

Capricorn 21st December – 20th January

Pisces 19th February – 20th March

Have you got a secret project that you are working on? If so, around the lunar eclipse on the 27th, you might have a breakthrough. This could inspire you to act and make it more public, involving others can help your dream come true.

Solar Eclipse in Cancer on July 13th 2018

This long hot summer looks to be full of changes. Eclipse season is starting and eclipses bring endings and beginnings. The first one is this Friday 13th, it is a partial solar eclipse at the new moon in Cancer. It is not visible in the UK but it carries a powerful message. Pluto, planet of permanent and lasting transformation is slowly making its way through sensible practical Capricorn. On Friday it will be opposing the sun and the moon. This is a good time to let go of things which we no longer need that are holding us back, so we can bravely create what we need to. There are two grand trines, one in earth (practicality) and one in water (emotions). These are positive aspects so this is a time to let go of fear and work to create what we know we want to. Aagh this is quite scary!

This eclipse looks to be quite relevant for me as it falls very close to my Moon in Cancer. On the domestic front and Cancer rules all things domestic, there are changes; minor building, redecorating and new chickens!

More importantly, on the career front, and Capricorn rules career, I have some good news. After twenty years of using and practising astrology, I decided to consolidate my astrological knowledge. So, over the last two years, I have been steadily working to gain a professional qualification. This work has been rewarded with a Diploma from the Mayo School of Astrology – with distinction no less!

I have lots of plans to grow my practice and spread my wings as an astrologer, now that does feel scary and exciting! So if you are looking for astrological consultations, talks, parties or lessons in and around Norfolk, please contact me.

New Moon in Gemini- time for a cosy chat!?

Tomorrow we have a New Moon, they happen every month and this month it is in Gemini. The sign of the twins, Geminis are chatty, clever and changeable. Gemini is an air sign as this relates to logical and rational thought. The planet Mercury, the communicator rules Gemini and has just moved into sensitive, moody Cancer. Therefore it gives light hearted Gemini a softer, more introspective flavour than normal. So if you need to get something off your chest now could be a good time!

Uranus moves into Taurus May 15th 2018

Astrologically, a shift is happening; to quote that famous song written in 1964 by Bob Dylan ‘The Times they are a changing’. The lyrics as as relevant now as they were when they were
written over 50 years ago. They remind us to keep pace with life,

‘The slow one now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past’

Uranus, planet of sudden change, innovation and invention moved from Aries into Taurus today at 15th May at 4.16pm BST. Uranus is slow moving, it takes 84 years to orbit the sun so spends around seven years in each zodiac sign. Its move into Taurus coincides with the monthly new moon, also in Taurus. Taurus is an earthy sign, connected to our values, our and all things sensual.

This Taurus new moon suggests major awakenings; a time to shake up to look at how we use our resources and to change what is not working and to embrace new ideas and put them into into practice, both individually and collectively. On a collective level we are likely to see changes in how we use money, how food is grown and distributed and the arts and music as these are all connected to Taurus. Exciting and creative times ahead.

Horoscope for May 2018

Well May is here and looking more promising today in Norfolk, the sun is shining and the blossom is out! As for astrology, why don’t you have a peek at the May horoscopes?

Planetary activity mid April 2018

There is a lot of activity astrology wise at the moment and a lot of it is happening in the sign of Aries. There was a new Moon in Aries at 02.57 BST yesterday morning Monday 16th April. It was conjunct Uranus planet of change. However, Uranus is about to leave Aries and move into Taurus so this is the last time that Uranus will conjunct the new moon in Aries. So it will be a long time – 84 years to be precise! I certainly won’t be around to witness it again.

Mercury, the communication planet is also in forthright Aries and is now moving forward. It had been retrograde since March 23rd. Communication should be easier and clearer than it has been of late. Chiron the wounded healer moves signs into… yes, you’ve guessed it! Aries today Tuesday 17th April. So all this adds up to a challenging time where we may need our courage to weather the storms of change, expect the unexpected and stay true to what we really want to do. 

In addition to this, today 17th April Saturn planet of time and responsibility is moving retrograde until early September. When planets go retrograde they appear to go backwards. Metaphorically, they  cover old ground, giving us a chance review issues. Saturn represents form and structure, it can also represent blockages and delays. So we have a combination of forging into the new with Aries versus holding on to the old  (Saturn in Capricorn). Change is necessary and it can be  exciting but it is also scary  and often uncomfortable as it affects our sense of inner  security. So we may feel a bit frustrated as we know we have to act and change but we may be afraid of it. However, change we must and if we are brave we can face our fears and create what we need to. This should minimize the frustration, let’s hope! Time ‘to boldly go’ like the star ship Enterprise in Startrek!
