As much as you have reached a massive month for career developments and a month where things could get extremely busy, there are some important safety features in place. This is always a month when you will have your professional hat on from the get go. For as is the case every year, the Sun is in your career sector until the 23rd August, keeping the solar spotlight on your career and professional situation, matters and options. This year you have Mars on board as well.
Having returned on the 21st July and not due to leave until early September, Mars will spend the whole month fuelling your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit. When you add in a total solar eclipse on the 22nd August and you have the potential for some major new beginnings, but also a busy month. But as I said, there are some safety features built in to ensure things don’t become too manic and out of control. One of those safety features is from the professional gods themselves, the other life is putting in place.
The first safety feature is Eris and Uranus. Whether it is Eris in her first full month in retrograde motion in your work sector or Uranus who turns retrograde here on the 3rd August, they’re at a near standstill all month. With both in retrograde motion from the 3rd August, while things are hurtling forward on the career front, on the work and job front and in your day to day life on the coal front, they are slowing down. This allows you to stick to your knitting, while also exploring new career developments. The other safety feature is Venus and Ceres. Between them they will keep a sense of wanderlust, curiosity and adventure in play all month. There will even be a mix of romance, adventure and nostalgia thrown into the mix as well.
Scorpio August 2017 Love Horoscope
When Venus left your relationship sector on the 5th July she wrapped up all the planetary activity for the year. That isn’t what is surprising. What is surprising is that she was still here this late in the year. The Sun left your relationship sector in May and often Venus is gone before then. Late arriving and late leaving, this allowed you to move much further into the year with relationship matters still evolving.
While Venus has moved on, just moving into the second half of the year with the planet of love on board has left you a clear sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. The relationship gods have moved on, but not before leaving you with everything needed to keep things on track. The Moon will move through every four weeks to provide a line through to your relationship sector. This month that visit will run from the 13th August to the 16th August.
As was the case last month, this has allowed the love gods to have their turn. With Neptune and Chiron in retrograde motion in your romantic sector, this is holding the doors open to the past and second chances. Last month the support of Mars in an adventurous part of your chart was huge. This put a cocktail of nostalgic, romantic, adventurous and passionate forces in play during much of June and July. Mars has since moved on but Venus, planet of love steps into his shoes from the 1st August to the 26th August. Venus doesn’t have Mars’ passion and courage, but she can tap into what he has left behind. And as the planet of love she’ll keep the spirit of romance, adventure and nostalgia alive through to the 26th August.
Scorpio August 2017 Money Horoscope
After months of not just juggling income and money matters, but the tension between the two, the power all shifts back to income matters this month, where it will stay for the rest of the year. However, the last planet to move through your financial sector this year did not go down without a fight. Not leaving until the very early hours of the month, Venus was the last of a parade of planets that began moving through in April. Venus was also the last planet to move into opposition with Saturn in your income sector, not just this year but for another 28 years.
While Venus was defending money matters as a whole and was fighting for a balance between money coming in and money going out, she was able to look at both sides of the fence. Venus is the planet of money, but her natural focus is on earned income. So pressure on Saturn in the later days of July would be more akin to Venus shaking him on the shoulders saying ‘wake up, wake up’.
Why that is important is that Saturn is now in his final weeks in retrograde motion and once he turns direct on the 26th August, his third retrograde phase in as many years and last for another 28 years will end. Saturn won’t leave until December and will enjoy unprecedented support from the professional gods between now and then. However, it is only until the 26th August that the doors will be open to the past, second chances and untapped income potential.
Scorpio August 2017 Career Horoscope
There are a few things you need to be aware of from the get go. The first is that there is going to be a lot of heat and intensity on the career front this month. So much so that there could be a lot of heat, intensity and what can be referred to as a ‘fast burn’. By that I mean things happening quietly, with a lot of intensity and even some drama. Yet that is because you have some of the most stunning professional developments ever seen. When the Sun returned to your career sector on the 23rd July it was to find the North Node here for the first time in 17 years.
But for Mars, who returned two days earlier, this is his first encounter in 36 years. The North Node is important because since early May it has been creating potential and carving out a clear path forward. The North Node is also the reason behind a total solar eclipse here in your career sector on the 22nd August. This has the potential for major new beginnings, something you have been working towards since the Sun and Mars returned last month. This takes you into unchartered territory, for the last time you had the Sun, Mars and North Node in your career sector at the same time was in 1925, 92 years ago.
Even just having Mars here, fuelling your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit, was going to make this a busy, exciting and dynamic month. But when you add in a total solar eclipse and the element of fate, this can be game changing. The Sun will leave on the 23rd August, but Venus will team up with Mars from the 26th August, returning in time to help reap the spoils. Ironically on the work front things are pulling back, with all the action on the career front.
