August 2020

The Full Moon of August 3rd

The month begins with a full moon on August 3rd, bringing sudden changes with it.

The area where the changes would take effect would be on the personal front. This would relate to money matters, one’s earnings, possessions, sustenance and one’s personal values. This, in turn, affects groups of people at large. The concern would be with companies and organisations, children and also one’s investments, pleasurable activities and one’s hopes and dreams.

The positive side of the full moon is that healing happens in a way that is beneficial to the world at large. As a result, it helps many to overcome the ailments of the present times.

Therefore, one would see a spirit of compassion arising strongly. Additionally, the focus would be on selfless service, sacrifice and the willingness to give without expectations.

Hence, the transformative power of the current events, would appear to bring about great moral and spiritual strength to many. 

Here’s some food for thought –

As seen earlier in the year, the 3 slower moving  planets Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto, conjoined, and continue to do so, through this year of 2020.

Firstly, with relation to Saturn, one of the main effects was the ‘lockdown’. Secondly, with Pluto, one saw the entire world going through a deep transformation. Thirdly, with Jupiter, one saw the amplification of the Saturn/Pluto effects.

What is interesting is that, though Jupiter is a planet that amplifies, it also represents higher learnings and wisdom. Hence one would have seen an amplification of this. Therefore, the learnings and wisdom gained, become part of the whole transformative process, within the lockdown and restrictions.

With the world becoming a much smaller place, thanks to technology, connectivity continues to increase with newer innovations. As a result, many are beginning to reach out to another, through this platform, to share, care, learn and heal.

The New Moon of August 18th

As one goes further into the month, the new moon on August 18th plants the seeds for new activities. The subsequent days, therefore, tend to bring much activity. This would be with youngsters, children, loved ones and the creative, fun side of life to some extent.

Friendships and social interactions may begin to happen to some extent at this time. This would create an intensity of communication on all fronts. Perhaps this would be a contributing factor towards a more light-hearted energy at this precise time. For, soon, things begin to change again in the following month.

An important aspect to keep in mind is that the planet Mars slows down this month and its effects will especially be felt towards the end of the month going into September. This planet relates to one’s activity and drive. The positive side is that it forms a good configuration with the new moon, hence the above analysis. But, simultaneously, it also forms a difficult aspect with Saturn, hence one would feel the intensity of some restrictions being imposed on one’s actions. It may not be easy, but patience is a virtue.

Following the ongoing and new guidelines and taking utmost precautions, continues to be highly recommended. One is not out of the woods as yet.

The following song, “A Spoonful of Sugar”, may help to lighten the mood as one sings along – 

“In every job that must be done

There is an element of fun

You find the fun and snap!

The job’s a game

And every task you undertake

Becomes a piece of cake

A lark! A spree! It’s very clear to see that

A Spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down……

In a most delightful way!”
