Angelic Astrology – August 2014
By Rev. Colleen Lemma
Well, here we are in August 2014 already…….doesn’t the year seem to be going by fast? Last month, July, was full of many energetic and astrological happenings with planets changing directions and going into new signs. Have you felt the movement of energies in your life? Personally, I think back to where I was at this time last year and I see a tremendous amount of change that has taken place for me. Some of it has been challenging, but in the end I have much to be grateful and thankful for………….I hope all of you have had positive developments in your life as well, and that it continues through the rest of this year!
August is a 6 Personal Month Vibration. The number 6 relates to home, family, children, nurturing, counseling, and mothering. I always look at the 6 vibration as the energy of the Divine Feminine! It is about being receptive and allowing and open to the Blessings of the Universe. It is also about responsibility…………responsibility to those we consider a part of our family, but also responsibility to our work, our Path, our career and even to ourselves! It is also the vibration of “As Above, So Below.”
What this means is what you visualize, think about and project out into the spiritual planes (above) is what will be created and manifested in the earthly planes (below). This involves the law of attraction and using your thoughts to create your reality. With the evolutionary energies that we have been immersed in, as a planet and as a humanity, this is happening more and more easily for us, as well as more quickly! This is why it is so important to keep our thoughts, ideas and beliefs in a positive place, and it is also why meditation is so important for us to stay in a place of balance, peace and connectedness to our Higher Soul Selves!
As far as looking at the astrological influences for the month of August, we start the month out on Friday, August 1st with the planet Venus in a challenging square aspect to Uranus, followed by a harmonious trine aspect to Saturn. Since Venus rules relationships and love, there may be energies of freedom and independence being experienced in relationship matters because of the Uranus connection, especially as the Moon is in the sign of Libra (the sign of partnerships). However, the trine to Saturn should assist the energies in becoming more stable, allowing us to gain an understanding of the lessons that Saturn is attempting to teach us about retaining our sense of autonomy as we join our energies with others. Later that same day, Mars, which rules our desires and passions, is in a challenging aspect to Jupiter, ruler of our belief systems. This can push us to expand our perceptions about what our truth really is. Are we passionate about the life we are living? Are we living and operating from a place of truth? Are we moving forward towards what we really desire to do as far as our Destiny Path? This energy can ask us to finally step into and integrate with what our truth is.
On August 2nd the planet Mercury, which rules our thoughts and communications, comes into contact with Jupiter in Leo and then later in the day makes a challenging aspect to Mars in Scorpio. This will continue to test what we believe to be our truth. We may have communications with others that pushes us to look at things in a different way or from a different perspective. It can also be a time of creative ideas that pushes us to take actions based on those ideas that will help us to move forward in our lives.
Mars in Scorpio connects with Neptune in Pisces on August 7th. Our energies and passions are deeply spiritual at this time. We connect with a higher realization that everything we do is part of the Greater Whole. Our actions effect each other on the planet and it is time to band together to take steps to bring about the greatest change for humanity.
The next day, August 8th, there is a lot happening astrologically. The Sun joins with Mercury in Leo for creative self-expression, uplifting communications and a joyful, happy attitude that may be contagious in a very good way! Mercury will also make a harmonious aspect to Uranus which is an open channel to Higher Guidance and information to come through which is very supportive for writing, speaking and teaching. The Sun also connects with Uranus to intensify this positive energy, and to bring in a sense of individuality and independence with what we are doing. Later in the day, Mercury will make a challenging aspect to Saturn in Scorpio. This may test our “ego mind” to stay in a place where we believe that anything is possible as the potential for huge leaps forward comes into our lives.
On August 9th, the theme of feeling tested continues as the Sun is in a challenging aspect to Saturn, Great Teacher of Lessons, and the Moon in Aquarius opposes Jupiter in Leo and makes a challenging square aspect to Mars in Scorpio. This is a lot of fixed energy that can be quite stubborn. We may feel blocked from our creative expression or may find it more difficult to take action or believe in ourselves. This all leads up to the Full Moon in Aquarius on Sunday, August 10th, which also squares Saturn and opposes Mercury, which are challenging connections. Again, this is all energy that is not easily open to change or going with the flow……it wants what it wants and has certain ideas that it does not want to sway from. If you focus this fixed energy in a positive way towards the positive belief that you can accomplish all that you desire……that you can create and manifest your goals…….and, that by projecting out to the Universe the highest visualization of your dreams, you can magically bring your future into existence in the now!
We have two planets moving into new signs mid-month. Venus, planet of love and relationships, moves into Leo on August 12th, which will be more fun, expressive and flirty! And Mercury, planet of communication, moves into Virgo on August 15th, which will bring forth Mercury’s analyzing skills and ability to pay attention to details. Then on August 18th both of these planets will make connections to other planetary bodies. Venus will conjunct, or join, Jupiter which will bring in an expansion of good feelings, happiness and the expansion of the Creative Divine Feminine principle! Mercury will oppose Neptune which can bring some confusing communications but can also bring in a spiritual connection so that your intuition, messages and guidance from God and your angels is heightened. Pay attention to the information that you receive, and clarify where necessary.
On August 21st Mercury is positively connecting with Pluto which allows us to speak our truth with a sense of authority and power. By standing our ground and being confident in our communications with others it allows us to feel more empowered!
Depending on what time zone you are in, the Sun will move into the sign of Virgo on August 22nd or 23rd. This brings with it a more down to earth and practical energy. It is time to think about what our priorities are as we get ready for another school year, and finishing up with any last vacation excursions before life shifts into more of a focus of work.
The New Moon in Virgo is on Monday, August 25th. There are a lot of planetary transits this day, including Venus in Leo trine Uranus which can bring some surprising developments with relationships, and Mars in Scorpio conjunct Saturn which may bring power and control issues to the surface. New Moons are a time of new beginnings so this day, along with the other planetary aspects, asks that we pay attention to our need for freedom, independence, and self-empowerment, while also making sure we focus on the little things in life that bring us happiness and joy.
On August 26th and 27th, Venus makes challenging connections to both Saturn and Mars in Scorpio. Venus wants to have fun and express her Love and her Light while in Leo, but with the difficult aspect to Mars and Saturn she may feel more restricted from sharing this energy with others or within herself. Then on August 29th, the Sun in Virgo will oppose Neptune in Pisces which may leave us vacillating back and forth from wanting to serve others and take care of their needs, with setting good boundaries for ourselves and taking care of our own needs. Our energy level may be lower and our sensitivities to foods and substances higher, so be sure to nurture and care for your body, mind and soul.
For the entire month the Transpersonal Planets, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are all retrograde. These planets are very slow moving, which means that when they go retrograde they stay retrograde for quite some time. However, it stands out that all three of these outer planets are retrograde for the entire month of August. This means that there is a lot of evolutionary growth and spiritual expansion going on for us on an internal level. When a planet is retrograde it internalizes the energy, which means it expresses inwardly (within us) rather than outwardly (in the world). Uranus is about our sense of freedom and individuality, Neptune is about connection to Source God Energies and the Universe, and Pluto is about transformation and empowering ourselves. This is supporting our awakening process and activating dormant spiritual energies within us that it is now time to get in touch with!
I asked the angels what messages they wanted to share with everyone this month and this is the information they shared.
First the angels come in with the message that this is a wonderful month to take steps towards your goals, dreams and desires! There is a lot of support with creative ideas and energies. They are saying that the timing is perfect to move forward and as long as you hold positive thoughts and project positive intentions, you will have positive results! The angels also ask that in taking these steps that you listen to your internal guidance and intuition. Your connection with your angels and guides is growing stronger and you can trust the information that is coming to you and should act on it accordingly!
This leads into the next message which is about paying attention to your diet and what you put into your body. Eating higher vibrational foods and drinking plenty of water is needed at this time to support the awakening and evolutionary process that you are going through. This will assist in heightening and fine-tuning your psychic gifts, healing abilities and connection to receive Higher Guidance from your angels, guides and the Ascended Masters!
And then lastly, they bring in a message regarding relationships of a romantic nature. Some of you may be in a partnership already where healing needs to take place. Others are looking for someone that you can share your life with. The angels are assisting all of you with whatever situation or circumstance you are in. The message they ask you to hear is to “Trust and Have Faith!” They are working behind the scenes to guide you in the appropriate way to the solution or relationship that is in your Highest and Best interest!
Many Blessings to You!
Light to All,
