1. Jupiter squares Saturn on the 3rd and this aspect is in effect from the 1st through 7th. The expansive, outgoing nature of Jupiter in Leo is challenged by the restrictive, austere discipline associated with Saturn in Scorpio, a combination that can lead to spontaneous shifts between joy and sadness, or gain and loss. Since a retrograde Venus is with Jupiter, expect trust issues to arise within relationships, and a general review of your closest alliances.
2. Neptune conjoins the U.S. Ceres on the 21st while trine the U.S. Scorpio Ascendant, a sweet combination in effect all month. Neptune here blends its connection to drugs with the nation’s caretaking functions, leading to developments in new pharmaceuticals, further liberalization of marijuana laws, and growing interest in drug-free food supplies. Since Neptune also squares the U.S. Uranus, expect political conflict over the funding of various entitlement programs.
3. Jupiter enters Virgo on August 11th where it remains until September 2016. Jupiter’s passage through the sign of work, duty, and modesty becomes a welcome downshift from the self-absorbed grandiosity of Jupiter in Leo. For the next year, the new ideals will be virtue, reliability, and orderliness. Areas to watch out for include fault-finding, cynicism, a know-it-all attitude, and narrow-mindedness. Jupiter here awakens the revolutionary spirit of those born in the 1960s.
4. Saturn octiles (45º) Pluto on the 13th, a challenging astro-event in effect all month. Saturn turns direct on the 1st when the basic conservative nature of this planetary duo becomes apparent. Saturn-Pluto favors economic austerity and consolidation of corporate power. Look for mega-mergers coming out of Wall Street, and the rise of neo-conservative politicians. Saturn is harmoniously aspecting Black Moon Lilith, allowing some to manifest their heart’s desire.
5. The Full Moon on the 29th conjoins Neptune, while the Sun is with Jupiter. For those on the spiritual path, this Full Moon can bring some engaging ceremonies and social events. However, this astro-event also brings out the crackpots, the self-righteous wannabe teachers, and the just-plain deluded – not to mention those who have problems with excess drink and drugs. A simultaneous Venus-Mars-Pluto configuration tends to create difficult romantic triangles for some.
