INTRODUCTION
In ancient Greece it is said that Prometheus stole fire from the gods and gave it to man. This fire is fully made manifest in the Sun which represents conscious awareness in astrology.

This Greek myth has modern associations, too. From Wikipedia.org:

In the time of the original games within the boundaries of Olympia, the altar of the sanctuary dedicated to the goddess Hestia maintained a continuous flame. For the ancient Greeks, fire had divine connotations—it was thought to have been stolen from the gods by Prometheus. Therefore, fire was also present at many of the sanctuaries in Olympia, Greece. During the Olympic Games, which honoured Zeus, additional fires were lit at his temple and that of his wife, Hera. The modern Olympic flame is ignited at the site where the temple of Hera used to stand.

A person who carries the Olympic Torch is called a torchbearer: one who brings the light. They are a beacon illuminating the path ahead. The sign that is tasked with bringing the light is Leo. This August is all about the light of conscious awareness coming into our lives and revealing what was once hidden.

In August, we change the guard in more ways than one. Cancer starts things off but eventually Leo comes in to take over the show. Mercury, Mars, and eventually the Moon, rally into Leo to join the cause. They answer to and rally behind the Sun, the final dispositor and the true torchbearer. On the other hand, the nodes change sign which ushers in 18 months of eclipses in Capricorn and Cancer. That’s until 2019!

This month brings two eclipses, nodes changing signs, Mercury retrograde, and Saturn direct. I hope you’ve already caught your breath because it’s about to get busy!

At the end of this forecast is a list of all the dates of significant astro events this month. I’ve decided not to focus on the minutiae of aspects and configurations, but instead this forecast weaves together the bigger picture. I’ve offered journal prompts in the hopes that you will be able to keep track of how this month’s events are relevant to you personally.

Where I’ve listed descriptions for each sign, be sure to read for your ascendant/rising sign first. Then read for your sect light: Sun if it is in houses 7-12, and Moon if the Sun is in houses 1-6.

Back in January, near the New Moon at 14 Capricorn, something new took off for you. Because of the nature of Capricorn, this was something that you’ve been preparing for, whether or not you know it. And you are ready!

Now, here you are. These new circumstances in your life have brought you changes and fluctuations, moments of being unsure, and maybe even fear. But this eclipse is here to bring you the fruits of your labor, or the lack thereof.

There are 2 eclipse this time around, bookended by echoing astrological configurations (namely, Mercury retrograde).

  • Full Moon Lunar Eclipse 21 Capricorn – August 7, 2017
