Overture, curtain, lights! This is it, we'll hit the heights when Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Mars all pass through proud and passionate Sun-ruled Leo, the most dramatic of all the zodiac signs this month, and oh what heights we'll hit! The First Quarter Moon in Scorpio, August 7, squares the Sun's trine to Jupiter, priming the inspirational pump from trickle to flow to gushing geyser with Jupiter's direct station synced to retrograde Uranus. Prepare for Olympian-level theatrics! Lighting strikes, earthquakes, and wildfires—both metaphorical and literal—are nearly inevitable.
By August 24, the Sun, Venus, and Mars conjunct in Virgo are engaging in an analytical menage-a-trois, a metaphorical three-way kiss—mingling intellect, creativity, and passion in a synthesis of past events, present realities, and hoped-for futures. Original solutions to old problems appear August 26. New Moon in Virgo on August 30 cleanses old wounds and provides a fresh start. So on with the show, this is it!
Now hurry on over to check out the forecast for your sign (check your moon and ascendant too, while you're at it).
