August 2014 Femastology
Summer is at its height and it’s time for all those Leo birthdays. And remember, Leos expect a big party and lavish gifts! The emphasis this month is fire. The Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter will all be rolling through the Fire Sign Leo, which is exciting, dramatic, and potentially fun. Some of this energy will be bouncing off Uranus in Aries, sparking innovation and positive surprises. Take some time to be creative. This year has been demanding and August would be a good time to make a conscious choice to revel a bit.
Lucky Jupiter has just recently moved into Leo, which will be noticeable. Jupiter is the planet associated with “good fortune.” Leo is associated with the Sun and the 5th House, which is also pretty darn fortunate. So, let the games begin! This month should be favorable for more risk taking, particularly if you have an emphasis in Fire Signs in your own birth chart.
If you are planning a party, try the weekend starting with Friday, August 8th. There’s a Full Moon in Aquarius on Sunday, August 10 and lots of great “group” energy to work with.
The Sun enters the Earth Sign Virgo on August 23 and things take on a slightly more serious, work-oriented tone. There’s a New Moon in Virgo on August 25, which will be followed by a slightly weird few days, as the Sun in Virgo opposes mysterious Neptune in Pisces. So, expect things to be on the spacey side from about August 25 through August 31. This might be great for creative endeavors, or even spiritual ones, but not so great for logic, order, and clarity.
Opportunity Days: August 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 18, 21, 28
Femastrology Horoscopes for August 2014
For all the Sun Signs: Everyone will notice a nice shift in energy this month with planets moving through the sign of Leo. Saturn in Scorpio is direct now, which will be particularly beneficial to those of us with Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius) prominent in our birth charts.
