Angelic Astrology – August 2013
By Rev. Colleen Lemma
Wow! July was quite an interesting month, wasn’t it? I wonder what the month of August will hold for us all!
Let’s recap last month for just a moment. We had Saturn, the Great Teacher, turning direct uncovering a lot of people’s (and organizations) shadow issues, including fears, abuse, power and control and other negative emotions so they could be revealed with the possibility of healing to take place. We had Uranus, the Great Awakener, turning retrograde that was pushing people to take a leap of faith and break free of confining circumstances and relationships that no longer served their best and highest interest.
We also had a double grand trine in water and earth signs, otherwise known as the Star of David, that opened a portal of energy for a day (July 29th) to assist us in taking our dreams and visions and bringing them one step closer to manifestation. All of this coupled with the fact that it was a 13/4 Universal month in numerology, which brought in the energy of death and rebirth within many situations in our lives, made for quite a month of transformation!
Now we enter the month of August, right on the heels of the Grand Sextile (Star of David) we had on July 29th. Energies have been swirling around for the past month and we now get to see where everything stands once the dust has settled. We are in a Universal 14/5 month in numerology, which relates to karmic issues of freedom, so look for some people still breaking free from old, outmoded, stagnant energies in their life. There can be sudden and unexpected movement or re-direction taking place.
The 14/5 energy is also about change and having a lot of choices or opportunities to choose from. It is mental energy, so communication, networking and troubleshooting are highlighted…….travel, working on many projects and following more than one path to see where it leads is important…….it is a very busy energy!
New beginnings are near with the New Moon in Leo at 14-15 degrees on August 6th…..a time to plant new seeds or start off in a new direction.
One of the water grand trines, with Neptune, Saturn and Jupiter/Mars is now breaking apart, although we still have the energy of Saturn trine Neptune to assist in the manifestation of our dreams and visions. We do have a second grand trine in water that is still intact for the month though. This one is with Jupiter in Cancer, the North Node in Scorpio, and Chiron in Pisces. This energy is bringing a lot of healing to our belief systems, expanding our faith that we can move into our truest expression of our Destiny Path and who we really are if we just trust in our Higher Soul Self’s guidance and that of our angels, teachers of the Light and Source God.
We have a few planets changing signs during this month. The Sun, of course, is in Leo until August 22nd giving us the energy of having “fun in the sun!” It moves into Virgo that evening when there will be a shift in the focus to things of a more serious nature – paying attention to details to get our lives in order as we approach the fall season.
Mercury, now that it has moved out of its “shadow” from the Mercury Retrograde period, is now picking up speed. Mercury is the planet of communication and our thought processes. It is in the sign of Cancer until August 8th. Communication with family and gentle self-reflection are highlighted. It then moves into Leo the morning of August 8th and our communication style will become more bold, inspiring and dramatic. Then it will join the Sun in Virgo on the 23rd so that we get our mind in gear to go back to school or focus on projects now that summer will be coming to a close.
Venus, planet of love and relationships, starts out the month in Virgo. She is not really comfortable in this energy because it is too logical and perfectionistic but she moves into Libra on August 16th, which is one of the signs she rules, so her attention can then shift to partnership matters and things related to beauty, balance and artistic expression.
Mars, the “warrior” planet, is in the sign of Cancer for most of the month until August 27th. Mars is a fiery planet and Cancer is a water sign so he is out of his element here. His fire and passion is “watered down” just a bit although a lot of energy can be focused on home and family matters. On the evening of August 27th Mars will move into Leo – a fire planet in a fire sign! This is much better……there will now be a lot more energy, passion, action and forward momentum to be put towards projects and circumstances in your life.
We also have a Full Moon on August 20th which will be a time to release circumstances and energies from your life that are no longer appropriate for you.
When I asked the Angels what messages they had for us for the month of August this is what they shared …
Admit the truth of any situation that you are involved in – do an honest evaluation of your circumstances and take appropriate action to release any thoughts, feelings, emotions, relationships or situations that are no longer in your best and highest interest.
Although there is still a gateway that is open for changes in your life to occur it would be a good idea to be thoughtful and make a plan first. Yes, set your standards higher! Yes, expect more for yourself! Do not compromise but explore what your options are before setting the energy of change into motion.
Bring forth the Divine Feminine Energy within! Compassion, peace, love…….even among the situations of chaos around you, stay centered and focused on Divine Light!
Many Blessings to You!
