In August 2021, whether we like it or not, we need to temper down our enthusiasm and act slowly, carefully, and cautiously.
Many are impatient to take a big step forward, stand out, impose their point of view, make it big, get to where they’ve wanted to get for a long time, but the numerous retrograde planets force us to take things slow. It’s Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Pluto, and – as of August 20 – Uranus. However good our plans might be, the global conditions (political, social or financial) seem to be unfavorable in August so we need to revise our numbers, prognoses, and business plans.
The first half of August 2021 is relatively busy, marked by tense aspects that force us to make changes and readjustments and adjust as we go. Eastrolog. com feels that it’s very likely to see a general tendency towards stubbornness and rigidity, which risks stirring intense debates on a personal, social and political level.
Some want too much, too soon, others are stubbornly opposing progress. Many of us think we’re the bravest progress-drivers, ready to take over the world, and then a few days later we can only see obstacles and fears and we act cautiously in order to keep up our illusion of security.
A lot can be resolved through dialogue, provided it is authentic communication and not speaking in turns while nobody is actually listening or, worse, some refuse to listen to what doesn’t suit them. Such a talking in turns situation might happen between August 10-11 and then around August 20, 2021.
Despite all of these shortcomings, Mars – situated in Virgo until middle of September – pushes and helps us to work hard, see through some difficult pursuits, clearing up the complicated details and simplifying a lot of our activity.
During the second half of August 2021 we get the chance to work hard, in a pragmatic and realistic way. This tendency is emphasized by the presence in Virgo of Mercury between August 11 and 30, and the Sun as of August 22. But eAstrolog. com points out that it’s extremely important to know when to give up, when not to push things if we’re not getting the results we were hoping for, and when to take a break in order to rest as we should.
The transits of the second half of August 2021 favor planning, setting priorities, and judiciously organizing our time and efforts but on the other hand, it can predispose us towards harmful perfectionism that makes us work excessively.
During this term, eAstrolog. com also recommends that everyone temper down the tendency towards becoming very critical and looking at something’s faults first, when it comes to situations or people or so on. Faced with faults or shortcomings, some might start to fix, others to flee.
On August 16, 2021, Venus transits into Libra, meaning in its diurnal Domicile. This Venus transit amplifies our desire for harmony and balance, romance and the need to socialize, make friends, and find our better half, as well as the need to focus on what’s truly beautiful and harmonious in our lives.
After August 21, 2021, we can expect some benefic and special events both on the love and the material fronts.
It’s very likely that many of us will feel that things become more stable and we enjoy the results of our labor as of late. Some might also meet someone special, who can and will guide them.
Some event from the past might take on a different meaning, perhaps because we look at it from a different perspective, in a more mature way, so we realize that it opens up new perspectives for us.
Throughout August 2021, eAstrolog. com recommends no one rush into making decisions or drawing conclusions, but rather test out the field, verify information coming their way, and act carefully and cautiously.
