General Predictions for August 2019

The Lenormand Oracle Cards
for All Four Elements

Fire: Ring+Lilies: Commitments and pure intentions

Air: Garden + Ship: Foreign matters, long distance travel and lucky discoveries

Water: Lilies and Ship: Sensual matters, ethical and moral focus 

Earth: Clover and Child: New Opportunities, possible conception

P.S. Make sure to look not only at your Sun element, but also the Moon.

And we’re back to the new normal! The eclipses have ended and Mercury is now speeding ahead. If you did the hard work of clearing out the figurative or literal debris during the last two months’ planetary shake-ups, you will reap rewards starting now.

The first few days in August can feel a bit unsettled thanks to Uranus, but as long as you stay calm and focus on your own progress in the areas of finances and/or love, the winds will blow over. We’re still under the influence of the fortunate Leo New Moon making a soft connection with Jupiter. Keep on sewing those seeds, make yourself clear as far as what it is you want and lighten up!

The week of August 5th-11th holds much promise. Jupiter is the Star to watch as the largest of the celestial bodies in our solar system changes stations and makes positive connections with the Sun and Venus. Leo, Sagittarius and Aries are particularly lucky, while Gemini, Libra and Aquarius also benefit. Take advantage of any golden opportunity now.

August 7th is an important day for Scorpio and Capricorn, although, Capricorn needs to take it easy and watch out for low energy, aches and pain, teeth or knee issues.

If you are a single Fire or Air sign, go out and mingle on Thursday. The weekend is most favorable to Sagittarius, while Pisces, Capricorn, Virgo and Taurus could feel out of sorts. Exercise, fresh air, positive affirmations or small getaways will help.

Just as Jupiter moves Direct, Uranus moves Retrograde and that’s a very good thing! You can push ahead in all areas of your chart related to Jupiter, be it in the areas of health, relationships, projects, higher education or long-distance travel. Just look at the houses ruled and occupied by this most fortunate of planets for clues.

The second full week of this month between August 12 and 18th features the Full Moon Lunation in Aquarius. Monday is a pretty calm day, but the action starts on the very next day when the powerful, dynamic Sun in Leo dances with the glamorous, social Venus, also in Leo. Wow! Leo, Sagittarius and Aries: this is your season to shine. Gemini, Libra and Aquarius will also bask in the warmth of this conjunction.

On the other hand, Capricorn should watch out for unnecessary conflicts, especially on the eve of the Full Moon on Thursday. Follow the rules while driving and avoid interaction with bosses or authorities.

The Full Moon in Aquarius offers Leo, Sagittarius and Aries a chance for healing old wounds. The energetic pattern is not too stressful, except for a minor, quick conflict between the Moon and Mars affecting Leo, Aquarius, Taurus, and Scorpio. Continue to stay calm or risk a nasty nervous reaction the very next day when Mercury will square off with Uranus along the same Fixed sign axis.

Saturday is all about you, my gentle Pisces! Mars will leave the dignified Leo and enter Tropical Virgo. Now, this is a most productive and focused placement; however, it is associated with loads of self-criticism, perfectionism and in some cases, war or war-like actions. 

While Aries need to watch their temper on Sunday, Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio should get some rest, preferably by the water.

Between August 19th and 25th, Aries, Taurus and Gemini can get ahead without any difficulty, except for a minor clash between Aries and Capricorn on the 20th. 

Tropical Venus moves into a weaker position in Virgo, on the very next day, August 21st. Don’t be too critical with your loved ones, focus on what you can do, organize and clear matters in due time to avoid mood swings or unnecessary self-doubts.

The rest of the week features Mercury matters, such as communications, travel, commerce, technology. Some contacts are very fortunate, others, not so much. 

Leo, Capricorn and Pisces: be honest in all your dealings, don’t overpromise and underdeliver, and if you feel you need a second opinion, chose your counselors with your head, not your emotions.

On Friday, single early Gemini and Virgo may want to avoid first dates just as the Sun leaves Leo. The planets in Virgo show us the way to improve our daily routine, revamp diets and exercise programs or resolve to improve our productivity at work. Since Mercury and Jupiter are cooperating, if you need to change jobs, now is a positive time. Remodeling projects go well too.

A full conjunction between Mars and Venus on Saturday signals good times to make adjustments in romantic and financial matters. Pay attention to details.

The Last week in August is blessed with positive contacts to Uranus and a gorgeous late summer New Moon. I know, the beginning of summer 2019 was rocky; so, let’s enjoy this energy with gratitude to the Universe. Venus, Mars and the Sun trines to Uranus bless the Water and Earth signs. Here is excitement, without the jitters, physical wellness, creative ideas and brilliant solutions to old problems! Some of you may join new networks, while others embark on an adventure and or a new, freer life style. 

Mercury enters practical, detail-loving Virgo on the 29th. Practical matters will dominate for the next several weeks as kids return to school. 

The New Moon in Virgo brings even more stability for the Earth and Water signs. Pisces and Gemini should have a fun start to their weekend, as long as they are careful not to over-indulge.

On Saturday, the 31st, Chiron, the Wounded Healer could affect Virgo and Libra in areas of communications and hurt feelings. The answer lies in being honest and patient with both yourself and others. Unless you have to, I’d avoid looking back at past wounds.
