HELLO, LEO!

Welcome to your ⭑COSMIC WEATHER REPORT⭑ for August 2022!

2022 08:Chart:05 Leo

1-7: The month opens with a very rare TRIPLE CONJUNCTION between URANUS, MARS, and the Lunar NORTH NODE, in your 10th House (Career, Profession, Reputation, Public Persona).

The month opens with a rare TRIPLE CONJUNCTION between URANUS (awakenings, surprises, unexpected events), MARS (motivation, drive, aggression), and the Lunar NORTH NODE (discomfort that leads to growth/what we need to master or conquer). This is an incredible marker for change, and although this energy may be uncomfortable at the very least, this will be a powerful trigger for action and movement. Sudden realizations and eureka moments may define this week, especially pertaining to your career, profession, and your general life direction. With the North Node in the equation, you may feel compelled to leave your comfort zone and push forward through uncharted waters. The journey may be difficult, but it may lead you towards a deeper sense of personal fulfilment, growth, and  invaluable wisdom.

It is important to be prudent in your movement during this week, as this is volatile energy associated with accidents and earthquakes in the immediate. Take extra care, make sure you have contingencies for all your plans. Take your time in movement. Haste and rushing may lead to dire consequences, if one is not careful! Remember: slow and steady wins the race!

4: MERCURY enters and travels through your 2nd House (Personal Income/Finances, Possessions, Self-Worth).

 New business ideas and other insights on how to improve your income may suddenly appear out of nowhere, dear Leo, so make sure you note everything down, as these ideas will prove useful in the coming months ahead! This is also a good time to troubleshoot, habang may oras talaga na tutukan ito. Ano ba pa ang kailangan i-adjust para mas ma-maximize ang savings and income mo? There is a need for practical conversations on how to improve your stability kasi focused ka on your money and possessions, more than usual. How you were able to handle the pandemic quarantines and lockdowns may be a good gauge on what you need to improve upon!

5-8: MARS in your 10th House (Career, Profession, Reputation, Public Persona) squares SATURN in your 7th House (One-on-one interaction, Relationships, Committed Partnerships)

MARS (aggression, drive, motivation) engages in a tense, volatile conversation with SATURN (restrictions and limitations). This may be a period of intense frustration, as the two most difficult planetary energies in the sky square off with each other, possibly resulting to either crippling, disappointing inaction, or  rash decisions that lead to delay at the very least, or destruction at the most. Arguments may result due to points of view that do not share a common ground. Issues between your personal goals or perspectives may be at odds with what you are being called upon to do for your work. Misunderstandings with colleagues and even authority figures may take centerstage during this time. Resolutions right now may be intensely elusive, so tread carefully! Take care with anything that involves speed!

12: A FULL MOON happens in your 7th House (One-on-one interaction, Relationships, Committed Partnerships)

Full moons help us wrap-up cycles, and facilitate endings, so new beginnings can occur. This month’s full Moon carries with it a foreboding mood that may feel cold and uncaring, as it is conjunct SATURN (restrictions, limitations), and square URANUS, bring unexpected change and uncomfortable awakenings. Feelings of unease that leads to detachment may be felt towards your relationships and committed partnerships, or vice versa, a partner may treat you coldly for the time being. Difficulties may feel overwhelming and you may consider cutting ties or finding new horizons, to keep your emotional peace. Be cautious about how you come across today, your nonchalance may seem alienating, at the very least! 

12: VENUS enters and travels through your 1st House (SELF, Physical Body, First Impressions, Self-Projection)

Welcome to a new Venus cycle! This month finds you in your most charming, attractive state, dear Leo. The recent busy months may have felt slow and frustrating, so allow this transit to bring you much needed good energy! Wherever Venus is, is where we are most magnetic, and Venus here definitely adds to your charisma and appeal. If you have a Leo ascendant, and you are single, take advantage of this boost of Venusian energy! This month is a bit of a downer, so this boost of positivity sis more than welcome.  Post your pictures! Maganda ang pag register niyan ngayon, more than usual. People will find you extra nice to look at! You may want to pamper yourself, too. Masarap magpamasahe, magpagupit, kumain sa labas, mag shopping… magastos ang period na ito usually because you are in the mood to splurge and spoil yourself. Kung may budget naman edi go lang 🙂

14: The Sun in your 1st House (SELF, Physical Body, First Impressions, Self-Projection) opposes SATURN in your 7th House (One-on-one interaction, Relationships, Committed Partnerships)

Push and pull energy between these two areas can be expected during these days, and delays or blockages may manifest, making this a frustrating or annoying day for you. You may feel hesitant to move forward, out of fear of making the wrong decision. Personal needs may be sacrificed to give way to the needs of a partner, or vice versa, you may require prioritization, with a partner being called to set aside personal needs or wants for your sake.  You may feel at odds, like you made the wrong decision, regardless of what you choose to give attention and importance to. Clarity may be found a couple of days from this point. Ease of movement may be expected as the transit weakens.

17-19: VENUS in your 1st House (SELF, Physical Body, First Impressions, Self-Projection) trines JUPITER in your 9th House (Belief Systems, Higher Learning, Foreign Travel, Foreigners)

A reprieve from this month’s harsh energies happen now, when the two benefic planets, Venus and Jupiter, converse with each other with a trine (120°), the most harmonious of all planetary aspects. For the days surrounding this transit, you may feel an almost shield-like sense of well-being, and things may start looking up for now, after a couple of weeks of rough situations and interactions. You may feel attractive and inspired now. This in turn makes you more amiable and confident, in terms of communicating your beliefs, while fully being open and considerate of the belief of others. This is a great period for those pursuing higher education, as your ability for learning is expanded now. Opportunities to travel abroad may open up now, too!  Enjoy this little oasis of good energy, as turbulence may be expected again towards the end of the month!

20: MARS enters and travels through your 11th House (Friendships, Groups, Organizations, Gains)

Expect a big chunk of your energy to be focused on your friendships and networking for the next couple of months, dear Leo, as Mars travels through your networking sector. There is a focus on goal-setting, and achievement may best be accomplished collectively now. Kumbaga, bayanihan ang peg! You will most probably be preoccupied with group work during this time, tulong-tulong. Energy will be spent with your friends and acquaintances, however, may tendency ka to be a little bit bossy ngayon, so try to be a bit softer in your interactions with others. You may feel like you want to donate to a cause, or baka ma-touch ka sa mga advocacies ngayon that will benefit humanity as a whole. Act on it and help out!  The fulfillment you get is well worth any effort. ❤

23: The SUN enters your 2nd House (Personal Income/Finances, Possessions, Self-Worth)

Your main focus now settles towards your money and security sector, dear Leo. Ideas for maximizing your earnings may easily come to you now, kasi super important sa’yo ngayon ang security and stability. Paano mo sisiguraduhin na sa susunod na magkaroon ng lockdown or emergency, handang handa ka? You can easily spot opportunities this time, so keep your eyes and ears open. Since very stressful ang recent months, baka magresort ka sa retail therapy, which is the shadow side of this transit! Kung may pang gastos naman, why not? Kung waley, burahin mo muna siguro ang mga online shopping apps, so there is less temptation!

26 – 28: The SUN in squares MARS, while VENUS squares URANUS

Frustrating, tension-filled energy caps of the month, showing consistency in this relentless month of difficult comic weather. Disappointments and confrontations may be a common theme across the board, with will and egos colliding (Sun and Mars), and with unexpected, exciting but oftentimes frustrating situations with romantic prospects, relationships, and just socialization in general (Venus and Uranus). Tempers can rise now, and those that choose not to engage in battle often times emerge as the victors, all things considered. Let the storm pass, as it always does! 

27: A NEW MOON happens in your 2nd House (Personal Income/Finances, Possessions, Self-Worth)

New Moon periods are windows of time where we may auspiciously set intentions, like planting seeds on fertile soil. Symbolically, we anchor our intentions to the lunar light, allowing these intentions to grow alongside the waxing of the Moon. And in with consistency This month’s New Moon is a bit harsh and volatile, as it is receiving heavy energy from MARS, the planet of aggression and anger, New beginnings that may feel uncomfortable, forced and even emotionally violent, may be felt during this lunation. You may experience a surplus of ideas that can help you improve your income, however, you may have difficulty in finding expression for them, perhaps due to lack of support from those around you. Arguments with people you do business with may manifest now, if you are not cautious! To avoid heartbreak, thoroughly plan for things first, instead of pushing to apply and execute! 

⭑Congratulations, you made it through August! Good Luck, LEO! See you next month!⭑
