Numerology/Astrology for 8/1/17
8/1/17 is the number 4. The 4 winds of change are blowing and brining you into a place where you know that because of all the impending change you will have to organize your life into a more solid enduring way. This number indicates that there can now be some difficult or unpleasant tasks in front of you so stability is paramount. Self-sacrifice may be needed to bring your awareness into a place of acceptance and grace. Those that are unwilling to adapt to a changing world are going to become more and more frustrated.
It is finally here, the eclipse month. We will see if important changes come from it. The general rule is that emotions will be high around the lunar eclipse on the 7th. It is time to open to new friends or take some time to play. Then Mercury turns retrograde August 12-September 5 in Virgo and Leo, bringing cleansing to self, your home/office, or you may just need a retreat before the coming autumn. The general rule regarding solar eclipses is that you do not initiate important new projects in the few days prior to the eclipse (August 21). It occurs at the end of Leo and the end of a sign represents endings, yet a solar eclipse represents new beginnings coming from deep within your soul. Beyond that, Venus is in Cancer most of the month and that can be very good for nurturing, family, and home projects. Mars is in Leo all month and the fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) are emphasized. That is not good for a fire season that is already in overwhelm and stressed, especially since “do it big” Jupiter is in Libra. Air signs represent wind. The combination of wind and fire is not good for the fire season. Saturn ends his retrograde cycle on the 25th. The god of boundaries and long-term planning is now in his final run through Sagittarius before moving into Capricorn near Winter Solstice. Cautious expansion is called for, or perhaps a conservative adventure.
Watch out for potential disruption early this month because “expect the unexpected” Uranus turns retrograde on Wednesday for the rest of the year. Because outer planets spend months retrograde, most astrologers pay attention during the days surrounding when a planet change directions. Uranus is associated with inventions, technology, revolutions and the internet. Perhaps you could use the next several months to do behind the scenes preparation for some innovative new service or product, or create/upgrade your website. For this week, go easy in traffic and give a wider berth to people who fly off the handle suddenly or have anger issues. On Friday, Jupiter squares Pluto, a challenge you have already seen this year. Right use of power and willingness to transform your philosophy and belief system is called for.
The Moon finishes its transit of Scorpio this morning at 8:02 AM when it enters Sagittarius. While the Moon is in Sagittarius from now until Thursday night, you will want to get out of that box and do non-routine, spontaneous experiences. This Moon position blends well with the fiery energy of the Leo Sun. You are also hungry to learn new things now. Even so, today is excellent for focusing on a particular mental interest or project, as it is fun to ferret out the facts and details. You may be a little perfectionistic now, which can narrow your focus a bit too much. You find it easy to reconcile your mental and emotional perceptions today, making it straightforward to come to decisions.
She’s never the same person after she cries,
she changes with every tear she sheds.
She becomes someone new, unrecognizable, untouched.
