Leo season always highlights close love relationships for you, Aquarius. But this year things are going to be a bit more intense, in a good way! The two cosmic lovers, Mars and Venus, are in your eighth house of sex and intimacy at the top of the month. Get ready for some juicy moments ahead.
The annual full moon in Aquarius occurs on the 22nd, and it’s going to require some decisions on your part. Truth be told, this may not be easy: Saturn and Jupiter are both retrograding in your sign. Neptune is currently spinning backward in your house of earning money, and Pluto is backspinning in your house of closure and moving on. As a result, you could be on the fence about major life plans.
Uranus gets wonky in the first week
The blue planet is cruising through Taurus, your sector of home and family. Uranus is under stress on the 3rd and the 6th, which could result in disagreements with people. I’m referring to parents, an ex-spouse, roommates or siblings. There could also be issues with a lover, especially when it comes to living arrangements. Are we moving in together? Having a baby? Getting married? Don’t worry, a lot of this is going to calm down after the 19th.
Sun in Leo
August is truly the best time in 2021 for finding new love, and I’m talking about a keeper. Getting engaged or creating a stronger bond in an existing relationship is also on the cosmos’ menu. Leo happens to be your house of business partnerships, so don’t be surprised if someone wants to team up. If you need to retain the services of an expert to help you with your career, Leo season is auspicious for doing so. Just be careful on the 10th, 19th and 24th, when oppositions could lead to differences of opinions in business and in love.
Leo new moon 8/8
The annual Leo new moon occurs on the 8th, opening up a fresh chapter in love. But there is a Mercury-Jupiter opposition on the 10th, which means that you cannot go into LaLa Land when it comes to romance. Keep it real. Don’t put anybody on a pedestal.
This includes a business partner or someone you retain, such as a lawyer or booking agent. True, they may have a lot of knowledge and experience, but you have the final say-so when it comes to what is going on in your career.
Mercury enters your house of sex on the 11th, joining lusty Mars and Venus. Don’t let fabulous sex blind you to problems that may exist within a relationship, or with a new lover. That said, if you’re in a solid relationship, things can get quite steamy over the next few months!
Uranus goes retrograde 8/19
This aspect might actually make you breathe a sigh of relief! When Uranus goes retrograde, things actually start to calm down. Considering that it’s in your house of home and family, things should start to chill out with the family unit. Even an annoying ex-spouse could become more cooperative. If you’ve been looking for a new place to live, it may be easier and more affordable than you might expect. Real estate prices in the US are going through the roof right now, but you could to find a good deal.
The Sun enters Virgo and your annual full moon occurs on the 22nd!
Virgo is your eighth house of big money. Serious coin. Passive income. We earn money in the second house and invested in the eighth. Considering that the Aquarius full moon occurs the same day that the Sun enters Virgo, you are in an excellent place for socking away a good chunk of change over the next year.
However, Jupiter and Saturn are both retrograde in Aquarius. This is not going to make decision making easy. Jupiter tends to be overly optimistic when it’s direct, and Saturn tends to be overly dour. The good thing about both of them spinning backward is that it will dilute this optimistic/dour contradiction. But you still need to take your sweet time and do things right. The thing to remember about full moons is that their energy is the strongest within the two weeks that follow it. But you can use the energy of a full moon for a good six months.
Virgo is your house of sexuality, so you could really blossom in that department! Enough said. Use your imagination.
Your eighth house also is a mystical place, almost psychic. If you have wanted to dive into shamanism or anything of a metaphysical nature, this is a great time to do so.
