Astrology Forecast for August 2007

Astrology Forecast for August 2007

Each of us has been waiting for a turning point and the signs have pointed to August/September. We have been fearing that it might turn into a crisis involving very difficult choices. Perhaps, we have also thought that we would have to fight the same stubborn obstacles and endure the same familiar aggravations, that the world would not help us, or, lastly, that the transition would not be final. There will be an important turning point, but it will be a transition and not a crisis. The world will change around us, removing some of the old stubborn obstacles and irritants. It will, in its way, be quite final. Also, the cosmic safety net we have enjoyed for so many months will remain in place.

ARIES ~ There is a way through all this that will bring genuine and lasting progress. It might seem like you ran into a stone wall, or like a perpetual balancing act with no point of rest. But if you understand it as a chance to establish a new psychological and spiritual starting point, you will come out ahead and with a clear way forward. Focus on the deep psychological and spiritual benefits. Fight to build on the sharing, bonding, healing benefits of recent challenges. Let the negatives slip into the past.

The issues you are naturally most familiar with seem to have a special significance for everyone now. It isn't just that others are having a harder time than you are sorting through their options. It's also that you have special insight into the issues. But you won't get by with easy answers. Although they are familiar to you, you must look at these issues again and find the heart of their meaning. You can't offer warm and fuzzy answers. This isn't the time for that. But your solutions will work.

GEMINI ~ Key family and professional relationships are at something of an impasse. Resist the temptation to spend money to stimulate or preserve these relationships. It could easily end up being just a waste of money. You should wait to see what happens in the next few weeks before you commit yourself.
Events will soon break this impasse and reveal the best way forward. Unrealistic ideas will be revealed for what they are. Alliances with local individuals and community groups are recommended, as long as they have realistic goals and function within their means.

CANCER ~ A fairly complex set of changes is taking place. Economic forces are transforming your neighborhood and putting pressure on your finances. It is still too soon to say how it will all come out, exactly. However, you should be confident. Despite the scope and the complexity of the changes, you will find a comfortable and affordable option. Your security and your standard of living will be preserved. Indeed, after the changes, the pieces will fit together better than before, providing you with greater benefits for basically the same input.

LEO ~ This month is a major turning point. You need to finally let go of some things from your past as well as some unrealistic ideas about your future. Financially you are pretty well pinned down. It is highly unlikely that you will be able to use money to preserve something that should pass or spend your way out of a situation. Events will ease the letting go process. Bonds of friendship are strong now. They should help you through this with support to spare. Easier times are just around the corner.

VIRGO ~ Sometimes it seems like all the key relationships in your life will conspire forever to block any and all progress along any and all avenues. What is not so obvious is that, in time, you can dissolve many of these obstacles yourself: Merely let go of outdated and self-limiting ideas, bring to light and overcome insecurities that hold you back, and develop the strengths needed to overcome emotional challenges. True, these are not easy tasks. But with Saturn heading into Virgo, you'll have plenty of time and motivation to work on them.

LIBRA ~ Libra's understanding of how the world works and how to fulfill their material needs and higher aspirations in the world needs updating. You need to stop and figure some things out. This might sound like an abstract, philosophical problem, but it can weigh heavily and Librans are especially sensitive to abstract issues. Updating your ideas will help you direct your efforts much more effectively in all areas, including career and professional areas. It can also have a positive effect on motivation and morale. Educational and spiritual involvements are in order.

SCORPIO ~ Scorpio has been adjusting monetary and non-monetary resources to cope with a complex and rapidly changing life situation. Part of the problem is simply not knowing which direction to move in. The unknowns seem to wildly outnumber the knowns. Events will soon help you sort through the options. Much of it is paperwork, scheduling, making agreements and garden variety communication. The resources are there, they simply need reorganization to meet current requirements. The planets will help by settling some long-standing issues and revealing non-starters for what they are.

SAGITTARIUS ~ Sagittarians have had a prolonged honeymoon with those in authority. You have enjoyed their trust, their confidence and their indulgence. But there is a shakeup coming. Changes could bring new associates and a boss who is less trusting and more demanding. Everyone will have to toe a stricter line. However, if you cooperate, you will eventually find yourself back in the boss's good graces, more secure in your position and financially better off. But until things start smoothing out, you should go along quietly with the new state of affairs.

CAPRICORN ~ A lot is riding on you, on your ideas and your ability to keep things within safe bounds once they get going. To some, the road ahead seems strewn with major obstacles, but you see a way forward. Faith, inspiration, vision, call it what you will, gives you the confidence that you can find a way. Rapidly changing circumstances will soon clarify and simplify things for everyone. Some obstacles will disappear, some pathways will close. This will narrow the possibilities, but make choices easier. Remain true to your highest principles.

AQUARIUS ~ In the last couple of years, Aquarians have been dealing with challenging partnership issues. Relationships became burdensome and complicated. Perhaps the warmth went out of them. Perhaps you had to reset boundaries between yourself and an old friend or lover. Perhaps some important, long-standing relationships ended. You might have experienced lonely times. There is no denying how difficult this cycle has been, but it will soon end. You will experience a period of renewal in relationships, both in old relationships that survived this testing period and in new ones.

PISCES ~ An inhibiting planetary influence has been affecting your work and professional life, blocking your path at work, interfering in promotions and blocking movement in the job market. Happily, this influence will soon be gone, leaving you on firmer ground in all matters related to work and professional life. The downside is that this same influence will now be affecting your personal independence and self-expression. You'd best get used to people questioning your behavior, especially people with the authority to demand change, or make you pay a price for missteps.
