The Sun brightens your 3rd house of mobility this month bringing a whirlwind of activity. Keeping balance may be a bit tougher this month as your list of activities, events, and other projects builds.
The 3rd house rules travel so you may find yourself on the road more than usual or catching a plane, boat, train, or bus to adventures, obligations, or both. You also may find yourself not traveling but planning a future trip.
The Sun in this placement brings focus to your communication sector so you may find you are chatting it up more than usual and that opportunities for social (online and in-person) abound. This transit definitely brings an increase in likelihood of a very fun and busy social calendar, which even if it isn’t ‘in person’ events, could take place through online gatherings or other virtual connections. Reconnecting with old friends, relatives, and acquaintances, or making new friends, are all more likely at this time.
Also, opportunities to improve your personal communication style to be more effective and productive could come up in a big way. Any books, classes, or other resources on improving communication to create win-wins is very favorable now.
The area lit up for you know also rules information: the taking in of it and the sharing of it. Anything notable in these areas are fair game to be brought into the forefront. Education and research projects are well-supported at this time.
Writing, editing, publishing, or other projects involving sharing information may come into focus now. It is amazing time for editing, reworking, finishing projects already in process.
If you are due to upgrade your communication devices and modes of transportation (aka thinking of buying a new vehicle, phone, computer, etc.), this could be the perfect time. See notes below about the “open” period as those dates may have the most promise for new purchases.
Things involving siblings, cousins, aunts and uncles (basically relatives that aren’t your parents or kids) may come into focus now from this transit. Don’t be surprised to have some notable contact from one of these relatives and if you have the urge to check in with one or more of them, following that urge may prove quite timely.
The Sun’s transit here can show us things that have to be adjusted in a certain sector of life but alternatively can show us things that are great in that area and can bring wonderful opportunities.
August 2022 is the last month before 1. Mercury retro 2. Mars retro 3. Eclipse season – all ramping up in September.
It is very important to note that for most of August we are still in the awesome last open window of 2022 that is free from personal planetary retrogrades that started June 19 and lasts through August 21.
Because of this “open period” free from personal planet retrogrades that goes until August 21 the first few weeks of August is the last best time of the whole year for launches and any commitments or purchases that are intended to be long term. The retrograde energies that will cover the rest of the year starting in September are great for many things but anything requiring ambition, drive, impetus, extra energy, yours or others whose help you need for the project, may better be instigated and followed through with if possible in August.
August can be a fantastic time for big purchases, agreements, commitments, big moves, job changes, launches, and anything that requires titanic energy, follow through, and zest.
Strong Leo energies bring radiant creativity and focus on children, romance, hobbies, and fun! This is a great month to do something big that you have always wanted to do. Leadership projects or anything that puts you or your creations out in front of people is well-supported at this time.
Strong Virgo energies help with editing, discipline, anything detail-oriented, anything on the topic of streamlining or organization, and also with anything in the health or wellness sector. If you are wanting to make some headway on a new regimen, have diagnostics, find new practitioners, supplements, diet, or other practices that require routine, additionally pets and animals.
