    The Full Moon on Aug 3th, 2020 occurs in sidereal Capricorn in the wise lunar star of Shravana symbolized by the ear. It may be a time where the world will “hear” some intense revelations. While full moons tend to bring things to fruition, this emotional full moon is sitting with police-like Saturn in Capricorn and sweet Venus is sharing the house of Gemini with the head of the proverbial serpent called Rahu at the exact degree. Rahu is the north node of the moon and tends to stir things up. Venus is the keeper of love and peace, but may not be able to do her job with Rahu directly on top of her during the month of August. This may ignite trouble with romance personally, while encouraging more rioting globally. The moon will have an affinity with Uranus during this time because they are nearly at the same degree. This alignment may bring many unexpected events ranging from earth changes, crazy weather, electrical/technology issues and more political upheavals. Don’t buy into the chaos. Focus only on those things you can change. Allow everyone their opinion. Retrograde Jupiter, the destroyer of darkness and chief financial officer of the cosmos, won’t be of much help during this time because Pluto is only a few degrees away in the same house dumping tar on his wings. The moon is asking her children (us) to stay in the eye of the storm with full awareness. To help reduce anxiety, use your “shravana” ears to listen to peaceful music, meditate, be in nature, frolic in the ocean, eat cooling foods, pray, be kind and trust your intuition first and foremost.

    The New Moon on Aug 19, 2020 will occur in sidereal Leo within the royal lunar star of Magha, symbolized by the throne. This also happens to be the lunar star under which Trump’s was born. This may bring in a time where the world is focused on leaders, especially Trump. New moons are a lucky time to begin new things, find new jobs, reinvent one’s life, or adopt a new belief system that bring more joy. Mars, the warrior, will be in his own sign of Aries giving him courage to fight. The Sun, ruling over governments and power will also be in his own sign of Leo, magnifying his strength to lead the masses. This may cause more war-like events as well. With two other planets also in their own signs, this is a unique time in the world when four major planets are in their own signs all at once. Planets gain strength and “wake up” to the truth when they are in their own signs. This may be an indication that the world will begin to wake up to the truth and find the courage to stand up for that which brings more peace, harmony and justice. We may be heading towards a “great awakening”.  This may also happen on a personal level. Individuals may discover new ways to cohabitate, earn a living or new love may surface. This will be a very passionate time in the world as well as an auspicious time to attain goals. Remember, we are all in this together and all is well in the Universe despite the chaos.

    The difference between the tropical zodiac and the sidereal zodiac is about 23 degrees. Both systems have value. Sidereal astrologers believe the qualities of the signs are not related to the seasons, but rather to the specific portions of the ecliptic as measured against the fixed lunar stars.
