Understanding astrological transits and cycles empowers us to see the energies that are coming and allows us to use planetary potentials to their maximum. Jupiter is a wonderful planet to track when looking at the span of a year because its cycles through each sign are around twelve months.
Timing is everything, as the old saying goes. During the 1980s and 1990s, the end of the past century, we assumed that the year 2000 would signal the change into the new Age of Aquarius. This was based on the long-held traditional idea that astrological ages are 2,000 years long.
This is the last month of a three-month (September, October, and November) cycle of ominous potential that can be destructive and explosive, resulting in a massive expansion of human awareness. The energy of this time suggests there will likely be another world-changing event.
We live in a time when it’s all too easy to overextend ourselves. Some of us overextend emotionally by giving too much, and others overextend financially by taking on too much debt. Some people overextend their physical energy, perhaps by exercising too hard or not getting enough sleep.
This moment is bursting with the potential to release new inventions, innovations, streams of consciousness, and higher-dimensional archetypes that are being activated by the heightened systemic, galactic, and cosmic forces stimulating the planet at this time.
Passions and emotions run high throughout August 2018 with water and air trines adding to the mix, generating the desire that head and heart become whole and harmonious. Mind and emotions will require clarification.
