August in the stars ~ Amanda Corrick


ARIES 20th March -19th April

With a New Moon early month emphasising leisure and pleasure it feels like a time to enjoy the better things that life has to offer and why not! Later in the month on going niggles will have to be addressed. These may centre around qualifications that you must acquire to move forward or travel arrangements. With Mars your ruling planet heading toward a conjunction with the planet of opportunity Saturn on the 28th new beginnings are inevitable. Tensions may mount but, new paths will be taken.

Thought for the Month ‘Out with the old and in with the new.’


TAURUS April 19th April – 20th May

A New Moon early month focuses on domestic arrangements. This is a time of possibility, breakthroughs and new ideas! Mars heading toward a conjunction with the stern planet Saturn on the 28th helps you to find ways to protect your long term interests. It also helps you to look at things differently and recognise self-destructive psychological patterns. The time is fast approaching to stop berating yourself and rather just take action in a new direction. Don’t worry if this brings about tensions.

Thought for the Month ‘Take the bull by the horns, enough is enough.’


GEMINI May 20th- June 20th

Certain relationships have been causing some discomfort. This is because others have been difficult and calling the shots. Still this month is a time when you will take some action and set your own rules and boundaries. This will happen toward the close of the month when Saturn the planet that teaches us lessons, turns direct in your opposite house of partners. Not only does this happen but Mars gives you all the fighting energy you need to push things in the right direction for you at last!

Thought for the Month ‘The darkest hour is just before the dawn.’


CANCER June 20th – July 22nd

A New Moon shines its focus early month on your finances and resources. You need to sort a few things out and chase a few people up. The good news is that Mars the planet of energy is firmly in your area of day to day activity, service and duty so you will apply yourself accordingly. Better still later in the month when tension rises with one or two particularly tricky individuals; you will find a way to turn the whole mess around to your advantage! You will put methods in place to ease the future pace.

Thought for the Month ‘Obstacles are opportunities waiting to be overcome.’


LEO July 22nd – August 22nd

This will prove to be a pivotal month for you Leo. The Sun I your own signs brings in a wave of energy as does an early month New Moon in your sign. Later in the Month A powerful conjunction in your own creative ability, love life and time spent with young people brings the promise of wonderful times. Of course this may cause some tension with others. Still now is a time for you to stand your ground with close partners you can reach agreements and find compromises that work for you.

Thought for the Month ‘Perseverance, perseverance, perseverance.’


VIRGO August 22nd – September 22nd

A New Moon and the Sun in your area of refection means you will have to revisit areas of your past early this month. Mars and both Saturn are also moving direct in your domestic area. Are there those in your family who are angry? Could things have been done differently in the past? Reflect on this now. Family like all areas of life need attention. If you do this now late month an opportunity for more balance will occur and relationships can be improved. This will be long term more fulfilling.

Thought for the month ‘Take time as time is all we have.’


LIBRA September 22nd – October 23rd

A New Moon early month draws your attention to teams and group ventures. These are things that you have had little time for because of family commitments. Still you would immensely enjoy anytime doing this so, make time for it now. Later in the month a powerful conjunction of Mars and Saturn provides you with new useful contacts and improved communications. All this will help with breakthroughs and allow you to continue with your plans and dreams at a more realistic pace.

Thought for the Month ‘Make time for yourself.’


SCORPIO October 23rd – November 21st

A New Moon early month signifies a promotion and a chance to improve your resources. This will be a big relief as for some time now life has been hard work and resources have been limited. While you have adapted admirably to the changing circumstances it has been difficult to make concrete plans. Now with Saturn and Mars having a powerful meeting on the 28th in your area of finances and self-esteem grab your chance. This may bring domestic tension but the end is worth the effort.

Thought for the Month ‘Speculate to accumulate.’


SAGITTARIUS November 21st – December 21st

Knowledge, travel and broadening horizons are all things Sagittarians enjoy. However, there has been little time for that lately. Still early month possibilities appear. Better still Mars in your sign gives you the energy to pursue possibilities. Saturn now direct in your sign shows you the way and together they set the ball rolling. You have a chance to change your future right now. Therefore, keep your eye on your goal and do not let peripheral tensions or others thoughts dissuade you.

Thought for the Month ‘The time is now.’


CAPRICORN December 22nd – January 20th

A New Moon brings into focus long-term security worries and psychological distortions. It seems you are being forced by outside circumstances to let go of self-limiting beliefs and to challenge your own personal reasoning. Mars and Saturn your ruling planet form a strong alliance on the 28th which force you to reflect and look at the past what you have learned and question its validity. Do this now, give up and let go. When you do you will see you have less than you imagine to worry about.

Thought for the Month ‘We all need some help from time to time.’


AQUARIUS January 20th – February 19th

A New Moon shows that your energy will be on close partnerships and alliances. Enjoy this early month. Later in the month your focus will turn to team and group projects which are never far from your heart. Still this is a month of change for many and restructuring. It may well be that you will not be too enamoured by others ideas of changing things. Try not to worry. It seems that for now others may have a clearer view of future potentials. Go with the flow, trust the process. Things are progressing.

Thought for the Month ‘Those who do not trust cannot often be trusted.’


PISCES February 19th – March 20th

You have been working very hard, been dutiful and of service to others for some time now. Still now Saturn the planet of opportunity plus Mars the energy planet indicates a new beginning late this month by way of a promotion or recognition. This could also be a competitive job offer from an unanticipated corner. The problem will be that there is some kind of loyalty or obligation morally expected from those in your past. The stars suggest the past will be just that so take your chances and move on.

Thought for the Month ‘You earn it when you deserve it.’
