It's officially Leo season! This August there are two key planetary aspects in play this year that involve the planet Neptune. This shift will challenge us all the see the world through vantage points we can learn from.

These lessons will show how deeply our illusions about other people and the world influence us, and not always for the better. Keep reading to learn more about what August holds for astrology transits.

Astrology Transits: Jupiter Goes Direct at 14 Degrees Sagittarius

Jupiter going direct at fourteen degrees Sagittarius is the station we've been waiting for. If you have already been feeling that this year's Jupiter and Sagittarius are inspiring growth, then August 11th will really create change. This day will bring an inspiring green light for you to begin putting that inspiration to good use.

These revisions will be made to long term goals as Jupiter travels backward, and you will be ready for a new expansion phase. You should feel relief since Jupiter in retrograde (when it moves backward) usually creates frustration.

This means when Jupiter is direct or moving forward, it should promote forward movement which feels good.

Uranus Stations Retrograde

August 11th is also when Uranus stations are in retrograde and six degrees Taurus. This means you should be ready to slow down, or even stop in your tracks when it comes to your finances. This is a good time to take a look at your money with a more critical eye and be ready to make and changes that you need to make.

If your resources are at all precarious, Uranus will make it clear where you need to stabilize. Or if you are feeling at all stagnant, Uranus can help you liberate.
However, you'll want to beware that sometimes Uranian liberation has a cost that can look chaotic, so be slow when spending money and buyer beware.


Leo season should also bring a breath of fresh air as the planet of love, pleasure, and romance, Venus comes into conjunction with the hot sun. This only happens twice a year and is key for relationships.

The other time this happens is Relationship Clarity Day which is when Venus conjuncts the sun as it moves backward in retrograde. This is a great time to reconsider and revisit your relationships, but it doesn't mean to move forward with love.

On August 13th, there will be a better variety as Venus moves fast and forward on a day some call Relationship Rapture Day. On this day you will be swept off your feet. If you find yourself in a new relationship this month, there's a good chance that's a good relationship.

This is a time you can move forward, as it's a great time to get engaged, married or even elope.

Mercury Watch

This month, Mercury starts moving slowly, as it recovers for last month's retrograde. As this month goes on, Mercury will pick up some momentum, which helps plans and projects smoothly and easily progress. This is a great time to make easy and swift progress on any project that involves communication and paperwork.

You'll want to set deadlines for paperwork, writing and contract-signing for later this month. Then you will be able to reach these deadlines with confidence.
