Emotional Activist

Action planet Mars is active in Taurus and your friendship and group sector as soon as the month begins. There’s a Mars-Uranus conjunction in Taurus on the 1st/2nd and it’s here where there’s potentially passion & fury.

You might be involved with a protest group or have activist friends whose alternative views shake you into action. There’s an added factor too because the karmic North Node is involved, creating a triple conjunction. You may sense the wheel of fortune turning as the month begins, leading you towards or away from a group of people.

Perhaps, you’re shocked by other people’s behaviour or you’re the one who shocks others by your decisions. When it comes to friends and group activities, there’s excitement and adventure. Friends could come and go or someone could let you down unexpectedly.

Alternatively, you might be around people who you find incredibly diverse and exciting, bringing something new and different into your life. Do whatever feels right for you and listen out for the signposts that may guide you in an intuitive way.

Freedom is a key feature this month, so consider what this means for you. You may be rebelling or fighting for freedom.

This might be regarding world events. Or, perhaps you’re on a personal crusade to defend your rights. Whatever your personal situation, you can’t do this alone. Find your gang, your tribe and join forces together.

Lovely Venus

The planet of relating Venus is in your star sign Cancer up until the 11th. This is a gentler vibe and you may enjoy the planet of love & indulgence, art & beauty gracing your star sign.

This can be a gorgeous time for love when there’s a sense of ease in your close relationships. You may enjoying being around certain people and savour simple pleasures.

You have charm in abundance when Venus is in your star sign so use your popularity and attract who or what you want into your life. The 2nd & 3rd could prove exciting for love. These are dates when love and friendship are linked.

You may feel more abundant or flush than you have for some time. Or, perhaps you’re ready to treat yourself and the ones you love.

Money Talks

Certainly, this is a significant month for money matters. This is because of the inner planets moving through Leo and your personal money sector. Talk planet Mercury starts the month in Leo, the planet of relating Venus enters Leo on the 11th and the Sun is here until the 23rd.

Therefore, this is an ideal time to engage with money, your values and self-worth. Consider what money means to you, whether you have enough or you want to earn more.

You may have to spend money on your home or your family. Or, you could choose to help the ones you love. You may decide to take a stay-cation to save money and seek more sun, fun and pleasure in your daily life.

Talk planet Mercury is in Virgo and your communication and community sector from the 4th to the 26th. Team up with other people and share advice and support.

Also, the New Moon falls in Virgo on the 27th, a symbol of new beginnings. Reach out on this date, whether you speak or write, communication is the key.

Full Moon Aquarius

Before then, this month’s Full Moon on the 12th highlights the financial axis of your horoscope and is a pivotal moment in the month. Full Moons bring matters to completion, there can be culmination or achievement linked to the Full Moon phase.

Yet, this is a challenging Full Moon so you’re wise to get practical and pay attention to the logistics of life. This may mean dealing with money matters, perhaps linked to a legal issue. Aquarius is the star sign that rules joint finances in your horoscope. Saturn’s here too, representing the authorities.

Saturn is the realist and taps you into the more frugal side of your Cancer nature. Try not to fall into fear or let scarcity take hold.

Use this Full Moon to make a clear decision about money and get real about what you can and can’t afford. This may mean stopping a payment or minimising expenses. Do what you know is right and feels right too.

Trust your natural instincts around money during the Full Moon. This may mean being willing to let go of or be less attached to money, assets or possessions. Mars and Uranus clash with the Full Moon. Therefore, you can’t rule out a shock around money, perhaps linked to a friend or group situation.

Being a Sun sign Cancer, security matters to you both financially and emotionally. This could be the main trigger for the key decisions you make moving forward.

Inner Work

Also, it’s important this month to find a way to lessen your stress levels. You might not want to take on too much or put added pressure on yourself. Mars is the planet that represents anger and Mars enters Gemini and the most hidden sector of your horoscope on the 20th.

Take care that you don’t turn your anger in on yourself. If you’re feeling irritated or frustrated, find a positive outlet for your emotions. The same goes for any form of negative thinking. Do whatever you can to knock it on the head and not be overly critical of yourself.

This combination indicates that you may be working behind the scenes or be busy with a project which you’re not yet ready to show the world. You’re collecting your thoughts or getting ideas together.

There’s no rush to take things further if you choose not to and it could take longer than you expect as Mars spends an unusually long time in Gemini, seven months in all. Mars only enters your star sign Cancer in March 2023.

This means it’s wise to prioritise the work you do on yourself and take good care of you. If you enjoy reading, lose yourself in books. If writing or journalling help clear your busy mind, start a daily writing ritual.

Take your time when it comes to personal issues and projects. Know that it’s enough that you’re working steadily towards them.

Gemini Horoscope August 2022

Inner Rebellion

There’s a lively vibe going on as August begins. On the 1st/2nd, there’s a triple conjunction involving action planet Mars, unpredictable Uranus and the karmic North Node, all in Taurus. This combination is about rebellion, innovative moves and flashes of genius.

It’s taking place in the most hidden sector of your horoscope. You could experience a surge of strong emotions during this period. You may feel strongly about a personal issue. Or, perhaps a secret or confidence emerges that demands your attention.

There’s a theme of the inner rebel and you may recognise you want to change something about yourself – adopt a new attitude, be bolder & braver or fight for what you believe in.

Uranus’ planetary energy is vibrant. Take advantage of a last-minute opportunity, flex your adaptable muscles and show willing.

It’s not necessarily an easy time. You could feel as if you’re an outsider or excluded in some way. You may have a sense where you don’t fit in and that you have to do things on your own. It’s only one part of this month’s astrology but it’s important.

Don’t avoid dealing with what’s happening on a personal level or on the inside. Mars remains in Taurus until the 20th and Uranus turns retrograde on the 24th, another key date for the unexpected.

A Social Vibe

Also, this could be a social month for you. Your ruler Mercury is lively in Leo and your communication sector up until the 4th, the planet of relating Venus moves here on the 11th and the Sun remains in Leo until the 23rd.

This is a sociable and cheerful vibe. It’s a good time to make new friends and get the right people on your side. Unleash your gift of the gab and be your charming, persuasive self.

Allies and friends could be a strong support this month. Work at your friendships, improve your network and connections. This peaks on or around the 18th, when you could meet someone who plays an influential role in your life.

It’s a good month to boost your communication skills, go back to school or gain new qualifications. You could be exceptionally busy, especially if you work in the travel industry, you’re a trader or salesperson or you use your gift of the gab in your job.

In business, word-of-mouth recommendations are your best selling tool. Whatever support or advice you need, reach out to others and create a strong network around you. You might be the one offering help or advice.

Full Moon Aquarius

The Full Moon on the 12th is a pivotal moment in the month. The Moon is in air sign Aquarius and next to somber Saturn. Plus, this Full Moon squares the Mars-Uranus conjunction. Therefore, this could be a time when your plans change suddenly, especially around travel or study options.

Keep your schedule easy and light. If you want or need to dash off and see someone unexpectedly, go for it. Move things around to suit you but be aware that plans could change suddenly.

This Full Moon is reigniting the Saturn-Uranus square aspect that was the main planetary aspect of 2021. Saturn is about abiding by the rules, restrictions and limitation, whereas Uranus favours freedom and breaking the rules.

You may feel caught in the middle during this Full Moon period. What takes place could change the way you see things. A clash of beliefs or ideals may be revealing. You could be questioning your faith or be exploring a new religion.

If you want to break free of an association or a place of education, this could be the time to do so. However, be ready for a postponement or a cancellation of a course or event meaning you have to change direction and fast.

Home & Family

Your ruling planet Mercury spends most of the month in Virgo, your home and family sector. Mercury is here from the 4th to the 26th and is joined by the Sun’s move into Virgo on the 23rd.

You may be talking more with family this month or be creating new agreements with tenants or utility companies. Work at supporting one another and share resources when possible. The New Moon in Virgo on the 27th is an ideal date for new beginnings in these key areas of your life.

You may be ready for a slower pace if life seems crazily busy. Certainly, you could have a strong sense that security and a safe base are calling you.

Action Stations

Finally, it’s important to note that you have action planet Mars in your star sign Gemini from the 20th onwards. This could feel like an adrenalin rush. It can spell good news for your stamina and physical activities. It suggests you’ll be feeling ambitious about getting ahead and pursuing your personal goals and aims.

There may be a tendency to favour top speed but be aware that you’re wise to play the long game. This is because Mars remains in your star sign for an unusually long time. Mars doesn’t leave Gemini until March 2023. This is because Mars turns retrograde here in the last two months of 2022.

Therefore, keep your gaze on your future goals and make the most of the planet of drive, ambition and speed in your star sign before it turns retrograde at the end of October.

Mars in Gemini adds force to your communication and can indicate a war of words. This suggests that you may feel strongly about what’s happening through August. Tap into your passion and use your anger to bring about change.

Think of life as a cosmic dance this month and you may be able to get more done than expecting everything to proceed in an orderly fashion.

Taurus Horoscope August 2022

Taurus’ Power

It’s full-on planetary activity as soon as August begins. On the 1st/2nd, action planet Mars meets the planet of change & innovation, Uranus, in your star sign Taurus. Mars is powering up the most personal sector of your horoscope.

This is turbo-powered activist planetary energy. Even though you are a fixed earth sign and renowned for being stubborn, this isn’t a time to stay put or refuse to change.

Plus, Mars & Uranus are at the same point in the zodiac as the karmic north node. Therefore, you may sense the wheel of fortune turning & moving you forward. Together, this triple combination is about fast progress, dynamic decisions & lightning impulses.

It’s not a time to be foolhardy or take unnecessary risks. Yet, it may be a time to stand up for what you believe in, be an innovator and use technology to your advantage. Mars is a planet that requires bravery and courage. Consider where in life you’re ready to be bold.

Mars remains in Taurus until the 20th when you’re likely to feel fired up and ready for action. This may be about a new chapter in your personal life with more freedom and time for you. Alternatively, you’re engaging with society and helping bring about change in a positive way.

Home & Family/Work & Career

Your ruling planet Venus is in the emotional water sign Cancer until the 11th. Cancer is the star sign linked to the home and family.

Venus here lights up your communication sector and life close to home. You may want to engage actively out in the world and connect with friends, neighbours, relatives or your local community.

Venus in Cancer is caring and kind and you may be doing what you can to help others. Or, you’re the one to receive an unexpected compliment or gift. Notice what happens on the 2nd & 3rd when this vibe is especially strong.

On the 11th, Venus enters Leo, the star sign at the base of your horoscope. The Sun is here until the 23rd. This is your home and family sector and it’s a good month to catch up with loved ones or make a significant home move.

The 18th could see you taking a trip down memory lane. Or, perhaps a benefactor or person from your past steps in to help.

The Full Moon on the 12th also highlights your home life, your security and foundations. The Sun in Leo opposes the Moon in Aquarius and your career and vocation sector but it’s not necessarily a steady time. Saturn in Aquarius sits next to the Moon in Aquarius, a symbol of endings or limitation.

Plus, there’s a clash between the Full Moon and Mars & Uranus in your star sign Taurus. Therefore, events at home or work could instigate change in your personal life. Alternatively, you may be ready to get things moving yourself and this is when you experience a strong desire for change.

You may not see eye-to-eye with people at work. Or, perhaps you’re not happy with what you’re being told or the direction that a project, job or organisation is going in.

Uranus turns retrograde in Taurus on the 24th and remains at 18° Taurus throughout August. If your birthday falls on August 8th-10th, you’ll experience the Uranus’ factor strongly this month.

Sometimes, external events kick in to bring about change. Other times, it’s your feelings of restlessness that trigger a significant move. The 27th & 28th repeat these key themes.

Both Aquarius and Taurus are fixed signs and can be stubborn. Yet, Uranus is urging you to break with tradition, do things differently and shake things up. You may already know what this means for you personally.

Money Talks

One area of your life where you can start to make progress this month is money and it’s here where you’re wise to focus your ambition.

This is because action planet Mars enters Gemini and your personal money sector on the 20th and will play a key role in your financial fortunes for the next seven months.

It’s unusual for Mars to be in one star sign for such a long time but, as Mars turns retrograde in the last two months of 2022, this is what’s happening. Mars only leaves Gemini and your money sector in March 2023.

Gemini is the star sign linked to communication. Therefore, it’s a good time to draw up new plans, do your accounts and be vocal in what you want to achieve financially. Keep your eyes firmly fixed on your long-term goals and stay steady in your belief to earn well.

Gemini is the star sign linked to values and self-worth in your horoscope. You may be engaged in a war of words regarding what you’re paid or what you’re paying out.

Virgo Season

This month’s astrology feels lively and full-on which doesn’t always suit you being one of the earth signs. Sometimes, you prefer a steady pace and less drama. What may help throughout August is the emphasis on Virgo, another earth sign.

Talk planet Mercury is in Virgo from the 4th to the 26th and is joined by the Sun on the 23rd. This is where’s a New Moon on the 27th, a symbol of new beginnings.

Virgo rules play and entertainment in your horoscope, luck and good fortune. Ensure you put time and energy into the people and events in life that bring you pleasure. Be open to romance, find your inner creator or artist. Be around the people you love.

Aries Horoscope August 2022

Money Matters

As the month begins, your ruling planet Mars is in action. Mars is in Taurus and your personal money sector where it remains until August 20th. Things are lively in this sector of your horoscope as the planet of change Uranus is here too.

On the 1st/2nd, Mars and Uranus make a powerful conjunction aligned with the karmic north node in Taurus. The wheel of fortune is turning and this could bring some surprises your way. It may be a time of highs or lows regarding money. There’s a theme of ‘what you reap you sow’.

Taurus not only rules money, also what you value and your sense of self-worth. There’s a theme of the new, whether this means updating your financial situation, learning about new money methods or adopting a different attitude to money & earnings.

The Mars-Uranus combination can be explosive and it’s not the best time to be overly impulsive. Yet, freedom beckons in some shape or form. And, there are times in life when you have to be all in to win.

Uranus turns direct in Taurus on the 24th, another date that could be pivotal for money matters and signal a change in fortune.

This whole month brings fizz and excitement to your money sector. It’s not a time for holding on tight. Instead, reinvent your finances, use technology to your advantage, go viral on TikTok. Whatever’s right for you, be fully invested in your next steps.

Aquarius Full Moon

The Full Moon in Aquarius takes place on the 12th and is super important this month. Aquarius rules friends & groups, your role within society & politics. This is the sector of your birth chart which represents your hopes & wishes. Full Moons are ideal for celebration and getting together with friends or your community.

Your planet Mars is active during the Full Moon alongside rebel planet Uranus. This could trigger your activist nature. You may become involved in a protest or alternative movement emphasised by the radical Saturn-Uranus clash that’s once again within orb until the end of the year. The Saturn-Uranus square dominated 2021 – rules versus liberty.

Mid-month is a time to rejoice, also to make your mark. Yet, there are times throughout August when the angry, defiant side of your nature could kick in.

In particular, the 1st, 7th, 12th & 27th, when you may be in disagreement with friends or be standing on the other side of group-think or the general consensus. At the very least this month, you need a constructive outlet for your passion & energy.

It’s an intriguing month in some respects as it feels lucky for you but volatile too. There’s a lovely Venus-Jupiter trine aspect on the 18th which promises good fortune. The best planet Jupiter’s currently in your star sign Aries, so look out for the person who lights up your life on or around this date. It’s a promising symbol for new love.

This month is about your social connections too and stepping in to help celebrate other people’s wins. Or, perhaps you’re the one sharing your spoils with the ones you love.

Mars In Gemini

It’s important to talk about your ruling planet Mars. Mars is a big player throughout August which means you’re likely to be at the forefront of action.

On the 20th, Mars enters Gemini, the sign of communication. This is a significant shift of Mars as Mars will remain in Gemini until March 2023. This is because there will be a Mars retrograde phase in the last two months of 2022. Therefore, it’s important to know where Mars is going to be in your horoscope for the next seven months.

Gemini is your communication sector and rules transport, siblings and neighbours. You’re likely to be busy, whether you’re commuting more than usual or you have various meetings and get-togethers taking place locally.

You may benefit from playing a key role within your local community, making new friends and contacts. Ensure networking and socialising are your top goals – on and off-line.

Mars in Gemini is a lively combination that flags up the importance of ‘people power’. Get on the right side of people who matter and you can make quick progress.

Be aware, however, that Mars in Gemini can signify a war of words. Be thoughtful around communication as what you say or write could be used against you.

All forms of learning are recommended now, whether you go back to school, learn a language, take a new qualification or sign up for a course. This would be a good time to work towards a test, sit an important exam, start a podcast or blog.

Romance In The Sun

Alternatively, you could champion love this month and unleash your passionate nature in other ways. The Sun is in Leo and your romance sector until the 23rd and is joined by love planet Venus on the 11th. Therefore, this is a great month for schmoozing, mating and dating.

The 3rd and 18th are both lovely for a date or special occasion. You may choose to spend quality time with your kids or put play and entertainment high up your list of priorities. Fire sign energy is strong this month which is good news for you, as it’s motivated, spontaneous and fun.

Home, Health & Routine

Finally, the planet of relating Venus is in Cancer and your home and family sector until the 11th. Be there for loved ones and notice who plays a supportive role in your life. You might be redecorating or making your home or garden look beautiful. Venus in Cancer favours harmony and beauty in equal measure.

There is a ‘back to work’ vibe throughout August too, as talk planet Mercury is in industrious Virgo from the 4th to the 26th and the Sun enters Virgo on the 23rd. Grab your pleasurable moments while you can this month and take time out or go on trips while the Sun basks in Leo.

Virgo time benefits from a regular routine and attention to your health and fitness. You could find additional support for any competitive situation you find yourself in. Take advice from your sensible workmates or colleagues this month and rein in your Aries’ mode of attack.

The New Moon in Virgo on the 27th is ideal to turn a new page, get more organised and apply for a new job or start a new health routine.

USA Pluto Return 2/22/22


“Hmm, Pluto hasn’t been discovered yet but when it is, someone is going to realize the 2020s in America is going to be a bitch and a half.  Okay let’s sign this muther.”


USA & Pluto 



I have been discussing the USA Pluto return for a couple of years.   As we know there are three dates in 2022 where Pluto will be exactly where it was on July 4, 1776, at the signing of the Declaration of Independence.   Feb 22, July 11, and December 28.   As I mentioned last month, because Pluto’s orbit is a bit wonky there is some debate in astrological circles about the dates being in 2022 or instead 2024.  But in truth no one is getting that worked up because, well, because it is Pluto.   Pluto has a long punch.  The bottom line is that Pluto will be grinding it out in the USA for the next couple years no matter what date is exact, and it already started years ago when Pluto moved into Cap in 2008.  



I would like to point out that as we approach the first date of 2/22/22 something happened last week that seemed perfectly Pluto return.  Pluto rules plumbing.  Pluto speaks to fresh water coming in and the pipes that remove waste.   Last week there were reports that the former president flushed documents down the toilet.    Sometimes astrology is just so on the nose.   


Given the USA influence in the world (either pluses or minuses) it does not really matter if you are or not an American, we are all in this profound experience together.     Let’s all take a breath and watch this space and as always proceed with love.
