A total of six planets appear retrograde between the 8th and 19th, including the less noteworthy Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, plus Mercury and Mars, which we’re more sensitive to. Driving ahead plans isn’t as easy, and yet the planets of great faith (Jupiter and Neptune) spend August harmoniously aligned, so all is not lost. Note the weekend of the 18th as particularly seamless.
On the 23rd, the sun moves into earthy Virgo and quickly makes friendly ties to Saturn and Uranus, helping us onto solid ground. An intense full moon on Aug. 26 (7:56 a.m. EST) prompts us to heal and be real; Luna peaks in Pisces, beautifully supported by Saturn, helping this dreamy lunation drop anchor steeped in reality.
