August! The last month before everything feels like we’ve pressed the fast forward button, and before you know it, the year is over. ‘Ber’ months are right around the corner, and you know what that means, for us Filipinos. Christmas time is here again, as we all collectively scratch our heads and think, “San napunta ang oras?”
August is going to be unforgettable. In a year of unforgettable events, that is saying a lot. The month is riddled with harsh cosmic weather that would usually make anyone throw their hands up and surrender, but after the last couple of years since the pandemic, we’ve all been a little bit more resilient. Weathered, yes, but precisely because of that, we are all more seasoned now. But are we, really? This month will be a test to that.
The grand triple conjunction from URANUS, MARS and the NORTH NODE in Taurus, happens now, a once in a lifetime event which has been brewing for quite some time now. Every month we say that change is happening, and it is true all the more with this transit. Change is not just happening, it is forced, even. TAURUS is a sign that has been battered and bruised most especially the last couple of years. Wherever Taurus is in your charts is where we are feeling stretched to the limit. Taurus’ steady, fixed resolve has been shaken by Uranian lightning since 2018 (until 2026), squared by Saturn since 2020 (until 2023), and is now the trampoline from which this eclipse cycle has been bouncing back and forth from. Cardinal or Mutable signs will be able to naturally adjust to the turmoil, but you have to remember, Taurus is a fixed sign. Arguably the most fixed of all, Change is not just challenging for Taurus, it is slow and at times, painful.
Mars and Saturn square off in a tension filled duel. Saturn is strong in Aquarius, Mars is weak in Taurus, which makes it all the more frustrated and callous. Coupled with other squares and oppositions that litter the month, caution and care is going to be required, to leave this period unscathed. But remember, you’ve made it this far! Soldier on! This too shall pass, as it always does, as it always will. ❤
For really specific details on how this month’s Cosmic Weather may affect you, you will need your exact birth time, birth place, and a competent astrologer who can compute and interpret your charts. However, even without these, knowing the general energies at play can greatly assist in planning ahead. You know the drill!
