2020 started with the ultra-rare and potent Saturn Pluto Conjunction followed by a string of Retrogrades and potent Eclipses. But now come August, we get a chance to catch our breath… August also brings the magical Lionsgate Portal, which will be a welcome break from the intensely transformative energies the year has brought so far. We have opportunities to boost our energy, recharge our vitality, and work on raising our vibration to the highest frequencies. August is a smoother month but if we pay attention, we may notice that it’s also setting the stage of what’s to unfold in the final four months of the year.

Astrology for August 2020

August 2-Sun Square Uranus
Whatever has been weak or shaky in our life is likely to come crashing down. This energy is not going to take us by surprise, rather it is simply going to confirm what we have known all along. 
Sometimes we hold onto things out of fear or because they feel safe and familiar, even if we know that the time has come to let them go.


August 3rd-Aquarius Full Moon

The energies of yesterday’s Sun Square Uranus will also be heightened on this Aquarius Full Moon. Maybe now that our lives have been shaken, we are noticing other things and beliefs that need to be shed too.

This is a very cleansing Full Moon that will help to shake off the cobwebs of the past. It’s time to let go, and this Full Moon will really be guiding us to release our attachment and grip to things that are no longer serving us.

August 8 – Lionsgate

The Lionsgate Portal will be felt brewing as early as the 3rd and will last until the 9-10th. The Lionsgate Portal is activated by the Sun reaching the peak of Leo, the star Sirius, and the alignment of the Earth. This alignment of the Sun, Sirius, and the Earth is what activates the Lionsgate Portal.
Under this portal, high-frequency energies will be beamed into our heart chakra and third eye chakra, accelerating our growth and spiritual advancement.

August 13- Mars Square Pluto

This is where we want to pay attention as on this day, some groundwork will be laid for the months to come.  Mars is a very active player next month and all the way through to the end of the year. Mars is about to go retrograde too, so the alignments it is making now are things we are going to have to revisit again.on both a personal and global level, it may not make sense just yet, but during the Retrograde period, it’s likely to be revisited and revealed in a bigger way.

August 15- Uranus Retrograde

Uranus will spend the rest of 2020 in retrograde, going direct come January 2021. Uranus’ retrograde is a subtle movement and one that we are likely to feel on a subconscious level more than a conscious one. It indicates a time to go back and reflect on how we have grown over the year and to honor the changes we have overcome. We may also be revisiting events from early January 2020, or perhaps looking back to this time period with clarity and even grace.

August 18- New Moon in Leo

Our mind may be cast to the future and we may be wondering about how to plan for the coming years. This is a great New Moon for setting bold and brave intentions. There is also supportive energy to take a leap of faith and to see how we can make the most of wherever we find ourselves.

August 22- Sun in Virgo

We enter the season of the independent and strong Goddess Virgo. This is a time to connect with our Divine Feminine and to remember just how powerful it is! 

The Divine Feminine has nothing to do with gender, it lives in each and every one of us, and is part of the life force of this planet. The Divine Feminine has a soft, flowy nature to it, but that doesn’t mean it’s also not strong and fierce.

The Virgin reminds us that when we listen to our inner compass, we will always have the strength and knowledge to make it through whatever challenges come our way. The Virgin is fierce, but their heart is open wide and is always lead by the power of love.

August 24- Mars Square Saturn

This is another day to watch for clues, for whatever is stirred on this day is likely something we will need to revisit again. 
Mars is the planet of action and energy, and when it goes retrograde on September 9, it is going to bring a fiery, heated energy that may see tensions escalate. 

Now, while it’s making this alignment to Saturn, we may get some clues in regards to where the tension may come from or what seeds are being planted that will lead to the lessons and growth the upcoming Mars Retrograde will bring. 

August 27- Venus Trine Neptune

While this is a subtle energy I thought I would include it because it’s magical! Trines indicate harmony between two planets, so we have the Goddess of Love in harmony with the planet of dreams creativity, and Spirituality.

Together, their energy will send sweet, romantic, and creative vibes into the cosmos. This will beautifully lead us into the Pisces Full Moon which falls on September 1st. 

Two Significant Alchymeic Energies For This Time

With the advent of this August Hermetic Astrology signifying great opportunity and chance, two new energies have been created to support us in coming to terms with this. Both of these new Alchymeic Energies are significant now and will continue to be on into the future. A must-have in this time of great transformation and change.
