Vedic Astrology Report for August 2019


vedic astrology May 2015

The first ten days of August could bring greater intensity as debilitated Mars finishes its transit through the challenging last few degrees of Cancer and first degree of Leo.  Venus is combust the Sun in August, indicating lessons relating to others. Mid-month the Sun begins its powerful transit through Leo, joining forceful Mars.  Benefic Jupiter goes direct in Scorpio, bringing greater confidence. Impatient Mars is exactly combust the Sun at the very end of August.

Venus, planet of love and relationship, will travel very closely to the Sun the entire month of August, as they move together through the signs of Cancer and Leo. From August 11 to 16, 2019, Venus transits 24 to 29 degrees Cancer, and is totally combust the Sun. Venus will be overwhelmed by the Sun’s intensity, as love goes through a sort of “purification” process.  Issues appear around self-worth or power struggles can surface in our relationships.  Have good boundaries and honor yourself. Diplomacy may be harder to find. We must look beyond the physical to more eternal expressions of spiritual love. Showing appreciation and expressing gratitude for those we love is a great remedy.

Mars, planet of action and courage, has been traveling through Cancer, its sign of debility since June 23, 2019, and Mars completes this transit on August 8. But first, on August 5 and 6, Mars transits its exact degree of debility at 28 degrees Cancer. Then from August 7 to 10, Mars moves from 29 degrees Cancer to 0 degrees Leo, as it travels the intense and transformative gandanta degrees, shifting from a water sign to a fire sign. Emotional turmoil and frustrations can be generated while Mars travels these last few degrees in the family-oriented sign of Cancer. This is a time for release, forgiveness, and healing of old, ancient family hurts.  Let go of misplaced anger, and practice patience and self-nurturance.

From August 8 to September 24, 2019, Mars moves through the sign of Leo, and becomes more self-assured, bold, and competitive. We feel stronger and have more energy now.  However, Mars in Leo can at times be overbearing and crave attention.

Jupiter, planet of prosperity, goes direct on August 11 at 20 degrees Scorpio, having been retrograde since April 10, 2019. Expansive Jupiter now directs its energy into the outer world. Finances may improve when Jupiter goes direct. This can be a positive time to be more generous and giving to others.

The Sun journeys through its own sign of Leo from August 17 to September 17, where it joins Mars. The Sun in Leo can be very vital, creative, generous, and loyal. At its best, the Sun in Leo commands respect through positive, uplifting actions. The Sun in Leo needs positive self-expression, and is quite ambitious. Being overly dramatic and the inability to accept criticism may also be present. Meditation and spending quiet time in nature are ways we can balance the Leo energies.

The combination of the Sun and Mars in the fire sign of Leo is quite strong, forceful, and driven. Activities that require stamina and courage are favored. Advocating for those in need or helping the underdog can be inspiring and energizing. Politically, watch for an inability to compromise or take advice and confrontational actions.

On August 31, Mars is totally combust the Sun at 14 degrees Leo. We can feel less powerful or held back, and then become overly aggressive. Watch for lack of patience and wasting your energy. We experience heightened sensitivity when others disagree with us. So slow down and take extra care to follow through with your commitments with greater self-discipline and focus.
