Summary Aquarius Horoscope: An emphasis on identity and relationships, with two major eclipses in these sectors. Mercury retrograde could see a financial or love matter come up for review. Saturn (one of your rulers) direct in your goals house could see a friendship or long-term project speed up.
Extended Aquarius Horoscope: There’s sure to be lots of activity in your life this month, with two game changing eclipses, Mercury and Uranus (your ruler) going retrograde, and Saturn going direct!
The month begins with two major heavy hitting planets, Jupiter and Pluto, squaring one another on August 4th in your travel and closure houses. I will admit, if you have a vacation planned for this time, it could prove challenging.
This aspect has occurred before- in late November 2016 and late March 2017– so think back to those times for clues as to themes that could emerge.
The first eclipse will be a lunar eclipse on August 7th in your sign of Aquarius. Luckily, this eclipse will reach out happily to good luck Jupiter in your travel house, as well as stable Saturn in your goals zone, suggesting that travel, friendship, and goals could go well. You might also be successful when it comes to technology, philanthropy, or business.
One thing to be watchful of, however, is the fact that energizer Mars will be zooming through your 7th house of relationships, directly opposite this eclipse. It’s possible that you will feel torn between your own need’s and a partner’s. You may even find that a partner becomes irritated with you!
Some good days to address partnership needs are August 10th, 13th, 16th, 20th, 21st, 22nd, and 27th. Luckily, I don’t see any other negative squares or oppositions between planets in your relationship house this month- so if you do want to get engaged, married, or start a business relationship, you have wonderful aspects to do so!
In fact, the solar eclipse on August 21st takes place in this very same house of partnerships, and it is the most gorgeous eclipse! It will conjunct motivator Mars and the fated North Node, reach out happily to Jupiter and Uranus (your ruler!) in your two travel houses, and trine stable Saturn (one of your rulers) in your goals zone!
There is reason to suggest that you make any moves earlier than the eclipse, however, as on August 13th Mercury goes retrograde, and I think we all know to stay away from Mercury retrograde by now!
This time, it will take place in Virgo and your 8th house of finances, so you may need to review and revise a source of credit, loan, or investment. I would avoid making any relationships “official” (including jobs, unless you’re desperate) during this time or signing any contracts. You could find down the road that whatever you committed to is not what you thought it was.
Mercury also rules your 5th house of love, children, and creative projects, so this is an area of life that could come up for review as well. Mercury goes direct on September 5th.
Switching gears, you’ll be pleased to hear that love planet Venus is gliding through your 6th house of work and health this month, smoothing relations on the job. In fact, you may feel so smooth you don’t feel like doing any work!
Venus will make loving aspects to Mercury, Neptune, and Pluto respectively on August 10th, 12th, and 15th, so these are wonderful days to address work or health needs.
Days I would avoid are August 17th and August 24th, when Venus will be angry with Jupiter and then Uranus (your other ruler) in your two travel houses.
Luckily, August 27th sees the Sun in your travel house reach out happily to Saturn in your goals zone. Even better, on August 25th, Saturn goes direct in your goals sector, suggesting that a friendship or long-term project will speed up or become easier.
Summary Aquarius Horoscope: A chapter of your life may come to an end with the full moon on July 8th. You could launch a new chapter in a close relationship with the full moon in Leo on July 23rd.
Extended Aquarius Horoscope: June 23rd saw a new moon in your work and health house, conjunct Mercury and Mars in the same house, and making a loose square to Jupiter in your travel zone.
It’s possible that you began a new job or assignment, or started a new health routine.
The first few weeks of the month continue this focus on work, health, and daily routines, with your best day to take action being July 5th, when the Sun makes a harmonious trine to Neptune in your salary house.
However, there are some hard aspects going on in this house throughout the month, which could bring challenges your way. Days to watch out for are July 2nd, 4th, 9th, 17th, and 20th. The 4th and the 20th could be especially irksome, since your ruler, Uranus, will be under siege.
Then, July 8th sees full moon in Capricorn and your 12th house of closure, and in truth, this moon is mixed.
While the moon will make a loving trine to Neptune in your salary house, suggesting you could make money, it will conjunct transformational Pluto, oppose warrior Mars in your work and health house, and square good luck Jupiter in your travel zone.
You may end a job at this time and receive a severance, but it’s possible that the split is acrimonious. It’s also possible that a partner becomes ill or that you’re concerned about them. Alternatively, you could argue with a co-worker or see a beloved employee quit.
It’s also possible that you close a big assignment or deal, but in order to do so you have to cancel a planned vacation.
Luckily, love and romance seem to go well this month, with loving Venus gliding her way through Gemini. Good days to address these types of needs are July 18th, 26th, and 30th.
I would avoid July 17th and 24th for fun, love, or child-related matters.
As the month progresses, planets begin to trickle into Leo and your 7th house of partners. Luckily, it’s all good news on this front, as Mercury makes harmonious aspects with Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, the True Node, and Uranus (your ruler) on July 7th, 14th, 19th, 21st, and 24th respectively.
In fact, you get a lovely new moon in this same 7th house on July 23th, giving you motivation and energy to launch a new personal or business partnership. Alternatively, you could begin a new chapter in an existing relationship.
Next month offers even more possibilities for relationships, since there will be a stunning solar eclipse in Leo (your 7th house) on August 21st.
