August is a month of big positive change. After a long time there are signs of hope and positivity. Let us see how the planets are moving in the natural zodiac in August. All dates are as per Indian Standard Time
Venus transits to Gemini on 1 August and meets Rahu there. On 2 August Mercury goes to Cancer and on the same day we have full-moon day, Rakhi Purnima, the Raksha Bhadhan Day. On 16 August two very significant transits are happening in the sky. Sun is moving to its Mooltrikon sign of Leo and Mars is moving to its Mooltrikon sign of Aries. Retrograde Jupiter is already sitting in its Mooltrikon sign Sagittarius. After its quick stay in Cancer, Mercury transits to Leo on 17 August. 18 August is a New Moon day. Retrograde Saturn remains in Capricorn. Rahu and Ketu remain in Gemini and Sagittarius respectively.
On a quick analysis we see that four planets are in their own signs this month. All the fiery signs or Agni tatwa rashis like Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are getting activated in the second half of August activating the 1-5-9 trine or Dharma Trikon in the natural zodiac. This denotes new beginning. Impulsive action, intelligence and wisdom come into the forefront now. However, opposition of two gurus, Jupiter and Venus may create indulgence and somewhat inflated sense of optimism. We also need to remember that Jupiter is retrograde; therefore not all knowledge and advice are coming from the right perspective.
Let us see what August has to offer to us. Use these predictions as a general guideline for the month. The intensity will differ as per your natal planetary placements, your Dasha, Antardasha and your Karmic footprint.
