As Mercury moves to its favorite sign on August 19th, there will be a moment of strength with mind and body.

*Horoscopes are based on your Vedic (sidereal) rising sign. You can also check your Moon and Sun signs for further insight. Do the same with your Navamsa signs for further clarity. Do not use these horoscopes with your Western sign (Tropical) as there is likely no correlation. These horoscopes are meant to be used as a broad overview of the current transits and obviously do not address the specifics of an individual’s unique chart.
Aries: Focus on home and heart until mid month, then bring light into your romantic relationships, as well as children and intuition. Shine brighter and honor your gut wisdom more consciously. You're either helping your digestion or not.
Taurus: Your heart, home and mother are a powerful focus this month. Be courageous and creative. Take steps towards your liberation and notice where you are avoiding or neglecting your soft inner realms. There is healing possible right now.
Gemini: Creativity and courage take center stage right now. Your hands are alive and active! Use them to re-create your life and bring your visions into form. Part of you is ready to leap forward and yet there are obstacles with the steps.
Cancer: Your mouth is a big focus right now. What you say, eat, share and express are all powerful and charged this month. Learn to refine and refocus what goes in and out of your mouth. This is connected to your power and ability to be seen and heard.
Leo: This is a potent month for you. It’s as though everything is happening at once and yet things aren’t happening fast enough. Challenges and frustrations arrive with change and transformation. Stay true to your inner guidance system and learn to simplify.
Virgo: Deep liberation and letting go are arriving right now. Release and align within. Spend time alone and in meditation. Integrate, balance, hit reset. You are digesting the final pieces of Jupiter in Leo which is the end of a 12 year cycle for you.
Libra: Gains are awakening and stirring you, however pausing is necessary in order to integrate the changes. Keep focusing on career and being seen until mid month, then step into your power more fully for maximum support.
Scorpio: The cosmos is asking a lot of you right now. There’s so much willingness for change and transformation, yet resistance and obstacles hindering your steps. Where are the blockages within your heart that are keeping you from making bigger leaps?
Sagittarius: Dharma is fully charged and active right now. Are you stepping towards or away from your path and purpose? What obstacles are showing up to thwart your progresses? What resources are showing up to support you?
Capricorn: It's a deep and powerful time for inner transformation. This process is awakening your inner power, even if it doesn't feel like it right now. Relationships are shining the light on where the inner work is. Dance with your vulnerability and power.
Aquarius: Relationships are proving to be a complex organism for you right now. There are resources and challenges showing up simultaneously. Are you gathering the insights and letting go of all that is not serving you? It’s time to be radical in the release.
Pisces: Healing has been intense and powerful lately. Clear and clean your gut, in order for more clarity and precision with your awareness and intelligence. Old conflicts and challenges are rising to the surface. You are your own enemy.

Jupiter is only days away from changing signs for the coming year.
Jupiter will move to sidereal Virgo on August 11th, bringing changes to the mind, communications and finances, as well as your healing path.
This year-long transit is considered a major transit, one that will have lasting impact on your life for years to come.
Why is Jupiter so important?
Jupiter represents the guru, the teacher. He is your
inner wisdom, a spiritual resource and a powerful ally for nourishing guidance and support.
Considered a benefic planet, he is a planet you always want on your side.
When in balance, he provides nourishment and support from teachers, authorities, parents, spirituality and government.
But when you are not in right-relationship with Jupiter, he can cause dire effects with your spiritual development, inner and outer growth, as well as your ability to feel supported and safe.
How will Jupiter in Virgo impact you?
Virgo carries the effects of the sixth house of healing with it and provides qualities of this challenging, yet dynamic house. The sixth house notoriously causes conflict, challenge and battles. It is the house of enemies, yet through enemies you can learn, grow and awaken your biggest shadows. Debts and financial challenges are also seen by the sixth house.
Not surprisingly, Virgo is connected to commerce, money, communication and connections through the market place. Since Virgo correlates to the sixth house by default and is ruled by Mercury, the mental body, worries and anxieties are also seen from this house.
Communication is a key theme for this Jupiter transit. Expand your ability to communicate- how you share, who you share with and what you share. Virgo brings healing through creativity, connection and co-creation. This sign also supports the market place, commerce and all things connected to money and finances.
No transit is all good or all bad, however the ways in which Jupiter impacts your natal chart will determine how this transit effects you.
