World Horoscope for August: No Relief From Trouble and Strife

Pnina Katz HOROSCOPEAugust continues the previous month of July’s aspect where Jupiter forms a square with Saturn until August 7th. This aspect has pointed us to difficulties,  stagnation and problems with development and implementing economic issues worldwide.

Moreover, the retrograde of Venus will likely bring with it a decrease in currency values and even of traditional hedging metals like gold. Even though Venus stands for economic security, the currencies of many countries may weaken, and a number of large international economic organizations are in trouble. These can all showing weakness at this period of time, as Venus continues its the retrograde until September 6th.

I argued as long ago as 2013 for an eventual softening of the Chinese economy,  particularly in its financial system, which would then expose the soft under-belly of its real economy. This finally began to be revealed during the month of July just passed. The impact on the China real economy, and the ripple effects it will produce around the world, may now become apparent during the coming month and the months that follow.

Also in August, Venus is withdrawing- retrograde from Virgo and moving to- back to Leo. This move will harm everything connected with luxury goods markets, gold, jewels,  and sophisticated fashion and other stylish products worldwide.

From August 7th to the 14th Mercury moves over to Virgo and will be in a bad position with Neptune  aspect with-IN  Pisces. This situation portends the exposure of scandals, confusion and uncertainty,  regarding specific areas of many professions. Expect revelations about major lies and fraud. Be very careful about signing contracts with people who are not known to you, and check the fine details of everything you are signing on.

Beware especially of gray market products, and attempts to lure you with tempting deals that may turn out to be just fast turnover frauds. The air pollution bar is raised for anyone sick, or who has asthma or other breathing problems,  and those who are sensitive to breathing harmful toxins should take especial care.

From August 10th to the 14th the Sun joins- Conjunct  Uranus in Leo and Trine with Aries, good for discoveries, inventions, and publications on topics such as technological innovations including in aviation and aerospace.

From August 12 to the 16th Mercury in virgo is in a positive aspect to Pluto in Capricorn- good for new beginnings at work, signing contracts, contract renewal and business meetings. Critical issues including sustainable economics recover to a stable path. The effect is good for new financial and economic rules that favour ordinary people. We see developments in education, health,  transportation. Getting start with new partnerships is also favoured.

From August 16th to the 23rd the Sun in Leo is in a square aspect to Saturn. This represents the least successful aspect in the whole of astrology. Its symbolizes humiliation, repression, economic depression, pessimism. It can also trigger a decline in profits and weaken positive expectations or even lead to despair in certain areas.

From August 18th to the 21st Mercury in Virgo is in an aspect of 150 degrees to Uranus in Aries. That is an indication for protests, strikes, other disputes in the workplace, redundancies or factory closings and voices raised in protest.

From August 18th to the 24th Mars in Leo is in an aspect of 150 degrees to Neptune in Pisces- this aspect may lead to flooding and other severe problems currently hidden beneath the surface, which burst out into the open with outrageous effects. Scandals in high places in governments, and amongst those in power, may undermine the central power and authority in a number of countries.

This aspect is also symbolic of developing infections, or other toxic impacts, to the level that endangers many people. It could be infection, poisoning, life-threatening drugs, exposing scandals in the police and army, undermining the trust of the public. Terror acts of murder and devious attacks are on the agenda of possibilities.

August 25th to the 27th Mercury in Virgo
August continues the previous month of July’s aspect where Jupiter forms a square with Saturn until August 7th. This aspect has pointed us to difficulties,  stagnation and problems with development and implementing economic issues worldwide.
