Hello everyone and let’s see if we can make sense with all that’s going on in the USA and the World thru the eyes of Astrological cycles.
We have to go back to August 2nd when Uranus went retrograde. We no sooner became “somewhat adjusted to the unpredictable behavior of Uranus when on August 12th, Mercury went retrograde and oh, yes, let’s not forget the first of two eclipses, the Lunar on August 7th.
Uranus has given us a sense of things not being stable and bringing forward shocking events. Eclipses can bring into a person’s life or a Nation’s life great changes as well.
This particular set of eclipses can bring unexpected events on top of Uranus’s shocking nature. Usually these powers can bring issues to a head, which have been ready and on the verge of change. The difficulty is the unexpected ways in which it takes place.
Now let’s look at Mercury retrograding on August 12th. Mercury’s job in the retrograde cycle is to bring out hidden problems and have the decisions made prior to the 12th of August, revisited.
Do you think there is more? Oh yes! Eclipses are in influence two weeks before and two weeks after they occur. Essentially this is a six week span.
Now with the 21st coming on Monday, this better half of the pair of eclipses, the Solar, has not yet finished the impact on this world. Remember, these are sudden and unexpected events taking place. Everything is in our face right now. Patterns needing to change are being broken up. This is obviously being reflected in the news reports these days as well as in people’s private lives.
Okay so is this it for August of 2017…..NO not yet!
On August 25th, Saturn may very well start flexing the muscles with “PAYING THE PIPER TIME!” It is karma balancing time. Saturn is in the last throws of generating its disciplines to the sign of Sagittarius (politics, foreign countries, our beliefs).
How does Saturn do this you ask? It is done through balance. Where things have been too constricted, it’s time to let loose and where circumstances have been too exaggerated and overdone, you guessed it, it is time to pull back and do with less.
In actuality, Saturn can very possibly calm some of the madness we have been witness to recently.
All and all this has been a volatile month to say the least. So how does this affect our country? Uranus has brought hidden rebellion to the forefront. We can see this being manifested from the 18 through the 22nd of August with the help of Mercury retrograde. Mercury is like being hit with electricity and that is precisely what it will be doing as it touches off Uranus!
Saturn is going to put on the brakes as it is in opposition to Mars (war, courage)! We may very well see things slowing down. Remember Saturn brings balance overall and gives a sense of grounding.
The 25th of August can also give us the opportunity to hold on to our belief in a higher power as Jupiter will form an aspect to the United States’ part of fortune. Here is where we can feel whole and complete through our Spiritual practices as a group of citizens. Jupiter is our overall moral compass, our philosophy in a higher power and that is reflected in our political beliefs as well.
Love, Love, and more Love will help contribute to healing anything!
