Our friends at Rescu are here to give us an insight into our stars for August. Resident astrology expert Yasmin Boland has everything you need to know about the next 31 days.
Strap yourself in fairies; August is going to be chaotic.
As you’re probably already aware, Mars is currently in retrograde which can explain why life feels crazier than usual. This feeling is not going to disappear with Uranus -the planet of madness- also beginning its retrograde phase. For those unfamiliar with the concept, retrograde is when a planet’s orbit slows and therefore, appears to move backwards in comparison to Earth.
Ironically, things aren’t going to slow down anytime soon. The retrograde of various power planets will make life feel unsettled for the next couple of weeks. However, it’s not all bad. When the planets are in reverse, it gives us a chance to review and rethink. If you are feeling the stressful effects of retrograde just a little too much, try practicing deep breathing and meditation to alleviate the tension.
To add to this madness, we will experience the third and final full New Moon eclipse of this season. This will create energy to propel any new projects or adventures. Now is a great time to define your goals and desires for the coming month to ensure they reach their full potential.
A full moon can also ignite emotions and bring them to the spotlight. Be aware of this as you navigate your relationships throughout the month. Focus on forgiving those who have hurt you and being honest about your feelings.
