August brings some relief from turbulent planets, but we are not totally out of the woods. Mars and Sun both find their vitality by moving into Leo and Jupiter goes direct. Four planets will cross Cancer Leo gandanta, and Kal Sarpa grips twice in the month destabilizing the strengths.
Key Dates in August are:
Saturn Ketu in close conjunction all month.
NOTE: All timing is for California/West Coast PST.
Four planets will cross the Cancer Leo gandanta activating blocked energy. Throwing up debris from old karmic issues that can be tough to handle and creating instability. The gandanta transits from Cancer to Leo are:
7 to 9 August – for Mars and will impact Aries and Scorpio. Be careful over these dates and then Mars frees you to act and enjoy August.
16 to 17 August – both Sun and Venus cross through the gandanta together. Venus is combust so feels burnt out, aggravated and angry. Sun moves into its power position, and Leo can enjoy the month from 17th onwards. Taurus and Libra need to take care, give themselves a break, avoid pushing themselves too hard.
25 to 26 August – Mercury crosses over the gandanta, so Gemini and Virgo need to remain cautious.
11th August Jupiter will go direct in Scorpio and will be a positive force to do good. It is excellent for Pisces and Sagittarius it is in the 12th house, so they need to wait till Jupiter goes into Sagittarius in November.
Jupiter direct in Scorpio is also great for Cancer, Leo, Scorpio.
Many Planets are visiting red-hot Leo. Mars, Sun, Venus, Mercury and the New Moon all will be in Leo. Sun and Mars are in strength and happy while Mercury and Venus will get consumed by the fire of Leo – how they deal with it depends on each sign.
The signs that experience this with high stress are:
Virgo – Leo is in the 12th house so their expenses will be high and out of control. They need to keep tight control over their outgoings – both financial and personal.
Capricorn – Leo is in their 8th house, many planets will bring unexpected changes and lack of control where life is going. Be careful, especially as lagna lord Saturn is with Ketu in the 12th. All decisions taken with caution, avoid taking significant steps.
Pisces – Leo is the 6th house. They need to watch their health. Overwork and stress can make them burn out. Also, watch for detractors who try to make your life as difficult as possible. However, Jupiter in Scorpio and 9th house will help.
Rahu Ketu surrounds the planets and seizes them into their agenda, which creates significant divides and unsettling energies if we give in to their fears and anxieties. This is not affecting one planet but the overall quality of life. Kal Sarpa by transit will also destabilise and bring divisive politics to light.
This year there are two dates, and between the Kal Sarpa, Moon becomes isolated, and the mind feels very alone and unsettled. So in this uncertainty can make decisions that are not so constructive.
