August 2022 Astrology Forecast

by Tiffany Harelik, MA, RYT

Have you ever met a free spirit?

Stay true to your own genetic law in August. 
How free do you wanna be? Free from what? Free for what?

Uranus Retrogrades in Taurus this month: Our collective root chakra gets a jolt of energy as ‘the Great Awakener’ shifts into reverse. Appetites, finances, and securities are all changing. This is our Tower card moment—things feel uprooted, upside down, and that’s ok—because it’s all for the purpose of rebuilding a better foundation. Pro tip: Uranus retrogrades 155 days every year, moving four degrees backward through the zodiac. This is a regular annual cycle that shows how changes we make on the ‘inside’, are reflected on the ‘outside’.

Best Days: 2nd and 18th

August Intention

I love feeling adventure and inner peace by following my own free spirit. I find joy in the journey as things fall apart, and into place. 

Numerology 5-Month in a 6-Year: AirBnB

  • If you like the extroverted energy of the 5, this is your month to double down and go full steam ahead. 
  • Are you feeling like bending some rules and getting out of routines? This energy supports travel, adventure, and shaking things up. 
  • If you’re feeling overwhelmed, or tempted to avoid life by getting out of dodge—ask yourself: what do I want to be free from? 
  • This is a great month to capitalize on or enjoy airbnb, create experiences, or new places to temporarily call home.

August 1-7: Pace yourself

Mars conjunct Uranus | Venus sextile Uranus & Mars | Mercury enters Virgo | Venus trine Neptune | Mars square Saturn

August comes in with a bang! Mars conjoins Uranus on the 1st on a 2nd line day, and on a Monday which is ruled by the Moon. Aha moments, breakthroughs, and even some explosions are likely.. Take extra caution around electrical outlets and appliances. Saying yes to incorrect things while you’re happy creates burnout. 

Good chemistry. There’s a lot of love in the air this week spicing things up! Venus sextiles Uranus and Mars, and trines Neptune – Do you want to leave room in your schedule to be pleasantly surprised? This can be a fortunate financial transit as well – is there some surprise money coming in? The 2nd is an ideal evening for a dreamy, hot date.

Distractions and inconsistency may pull you in several directions as you’re trying to figure out how you feel. Stay hydrated and pack your patience as accidents are more likely and tempers flare over the weekend. Unprocessed emotions may surface as Mars squares Saturn on the 7th. We are learning to be okay in the highs, lows, stillness, and adventure – trusting that we are exactly where we need to be.

Do you want to map out some time to restore your energy? With the Sun in gate 33, it’s time to practice taking a step back and enjoying the privacy of your own aura. By the 6th, there will be an impulse to go in a new direction as the Sun moves into gate 7. Do you want to join us for the Lion’s Gate Summit and put your intentions into a blessing ball with us next week?

August 8-14: Auspicious Lion’s Gate 

Sun trine Chiron | Venus opposite Pluto | Sun square Uranus | Venus in Leo | Mars Sextile Neptune | Sun opposite Saturn | Mars trine Pluto

An inner healing is taking place as the Sun trines Chiron and we enter the sacred Lion’s Gate. Look for the helpers and check out our Lion’s Gate recommendations and Summit event here:

With Venus opposing Pluto many of us will feel lethargic and somewhat helpless. This creates a willingness to do things differently. And isn’t that exactly the place where Spirit wants us to be? We don’t have to be ready, we just have to be willing. Do you want to stay plugged in to your counselors, dreamers, and spiritual support team this week? 

Stinking Thinking. Do you notice what’s bothering you? There’s an inner pressure to figure something out midweek—this energy has a tendency to also create issues where there are none. What really needs to be figured out – and what is just mind candy that’s trying to distract you?

Rebel Rebel. Unpredictability, outbursts, and radical changes of behavior are among us. We can continue to make the most of uncertain times by knowing ourselves, and being true to ourselves. Where can you break on through to the other side, yeah? Venus enters Leo on the 11th as the Sun squares Uranus. 

August 12: Full Moon at 19° Aquarius. Intention: I am proud of my progress and experience futuristic solutions with ease. It’s time to find completion with whatever is making you crazy. This will bring liberation and freedom we are seeking this month.

What groups, or collective ideas do you need to separate yourself from? This phase signifies the completion of a cycle, endings, and closure. Get extra insight on what needs to end wherever 19-Aquarius is in your birth chart.

Divine right alignment, steamy connections, mysterious ways of rising to power, and major transitions are part of the weekend astrological love potion as Mars trines Pluto Keep your nose to the grindstone: hard work pays off while the Sun opposes Saturn.

August 15-21: Learn Something New

Venus trine Jupiter | Mars in Gemini | Mercury opposite Neptune

Lady luck is on your side with both love and money. Watch for cosmic support systems, influential connections, really good proposals, and wisdom around finances as Venus trines Jupiter Aug 16-18. There’s hunger for a new adventure, and you have the energy to follow a new impulse while the Sun is in gate 29 (August 17-22). Be careful about overcommitting to incorrect invitations this week – only do what’s best for your energy.

Speaking of what’s best for you—what do you want to learn? Mars moves into Gemini August 20th through October 30th. The good news: this influence creates more flexibility, and adaptability. The challenging news: we can be wishy-washy, indecisive, and talk too much. The mind can be a dangerous place on it’s own – do you want to check in with a mentor for coffee? Does it sound fun to keep yourself stimulated with new projects and fun people to avoid stagnation and boredom? I’m taking the Master Gardener classes this season. 

Where can you stay open minded and curious? Mercury opposes Neptune distorting our thinking and planning. Do you want to calm the nervous system with a soothing anti-inflammatory diet? This is not an ideal time to make big decisions, but it’s a great time to day dream and explore options. You may find yourself sensitive to this energy all week, but it will release on the 21st.

August 22-28: The impulse to cultivate intimacy

Mercury trine Pluto | Sun enters Virgo | Uranus Retrograde in Taurus | Venus trine Chiron | Mercury enters Libra | Venus square Uranus | Sun square Mars | Venus opposite Saturn

You’re on a fact-finding mission to uncover some important information. This is an excellent transit for writing, researching, and exploring new ways of thinking. Look for clues or spiritual signposts of what you need to uncover early in the week as Mercury trines Pluto. The Sun is in Gate 59 of bonding and intimacy all week—what fertile connections are being made?

Happy Birthday Virgos! We can all tap into our hard-working, highly organized, service-oriented Virgo vibes while the Sun is in your sign August 23 through September 23.

August 24: Uranus Retrogrades in Taurus as Venus trines Chiron:  Our collective root chakra gets a jolt of energy as ‘the Great Awakener’ shifts into reverse. Appetites, finances, and securities are all changing. This is our Tower card moment—things feel uprooted, upside down, and that’s ok—because it’s all for the purpose of rebuilding a better foundation. Reminder:  Uranus retrogrades 155 days every year, moving four degrees backward through the zodiac. This is a regular annual cycle that shows how changes we make on the ‘inside’, are reflected on the ‘outside’.

Mercury inspires us to focus on relationships while staying in hotel Libra August 26th through September 23rd. What would benefit from a new perspective, more peace, and more harmony in your life? This is an auspicious window of time to do a relationship inventory: which ones are inspiring, which ones are draining, what is it like to be on the other side of you?

Heads up—if you’re feeling irritable, restless, discontent, try to find a healthy physical outlet to process anger, loss of control, and ill moods so they don’t get stuck in your body (Sun squares Mars and Venus opposes Saturn on the 27th). Know this: impulsivity due to extra energy now, can create problems for you later. Avoid dangerous situations under these volatile Skies. See where some detachment magic might be helpful to you this week when needed.

It’s time to remove:
Judgmental or overly critical attitudes, Analysis paralysis , Inefficiency or getting stuck in the details, and Inability to see the bigger picture.

August 29-31

In like a lion, out like a lamb. The Sun is in gate 40 for the rest of the month, inspiring interdependence, self-respect, and self-inquiry. Where can you walk softly with yourself and others? How free do you want to be? Free from what? Free for what? Have you ever met a free spirit?

What’s Next?

The Scorpio eclipse on October 25th brings a new awareness as it’s planetary ruler Mars sets up to retrograde October 30th for the rest of the year in Gemini. Mars represents challenges, energy, competition, and war. Gemini governs the lungs, shoulders, and hands, as well as our schools, teachers, and the way we learn. This Fall we will be reflective on where we are of a divided mind, and what we are at war with, within ourselves. Did you miss our Mars Retrograde workshop?
