Astrology of Saturday, August 8
During this season of Leo the Lion, can you hear the roar? The Moon in Aries is trine Leo, both in fire signs, and the Moon is very close to Chiron and Mars/Lilith in Aries. Fire being fire, there may be some roaring going on as Leo wants actions to rectify they or a member of their pride, has been wronged. And since Chiron is associated with healing, some of the necessary change may involve healthcare.
It is not in the nature of Aries or Leo to do nothing when confronted with power structures that are outmoded or in need of transformation (Pluto in Capricorn, inconjunct the Leo Sun and Mars in Aries). There is a need for adjustment - overhaul, transformation - of the institutions that are no longer serving us well. Including healthcare.
Facts, science and journalism, Mercury in Leo, stand opposite Saturn in Capricorn, the traditional infrastructure of power and authority. The people of the United States are angry and hurting; the media reports it and the Old Guard just want it to go back to the way things were.
But the rules have changed. Sun in Leo square Uranus in Taurus, and people are not happy about it. Some want to jealously guard their personal "liberty" by not adhering to masking and distancing. Perhaps they are in denial. But others are uncomfortable or worse in the face of changes. It is a volatile time.
Those with planets in the signs Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn at 15 - 26 degrees or planets in the signs Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, or Aquarius at 0 degrees to 10 degrees will be most affected.
Personally, you can ask yourself..where am I clinging to outmoed views and need an overhaul so that my personal essence shines the brightest? Where do I feel I have been unjustly hurt? How would I create a reality that works better for me?
