This August, Mercury, the planet for communication, will turn retrograde starting August 13th. Jupiter will transit through Virgo, and Saturn, which has been retrograde, will turn direct from August 26th. There are two eclipses this month: The first will be a lunar eclipse, which is on 7th August, and the second is solar eclipse, which will be on 21st August 2017. The partial lunar eclipse will be visible from most of India, Asia, Australia, Africa and Europe. The solar eclipse of the 21st will be visible mostly in Western Europe, North America and part of South America. Whatever may be your desire to go out and view the eclipse, it is strongly recommended to avoid viewing the solar eclipse as the strong sun rays can damage the retina.

With two eclipses this month, the cosmic energy will not be balanced. You will find not many things working out as you planned. There can be unforeseen and turbulent events. There may be commitments that you need to fulfill putting pressure on your mind. The comic energy this time around can make things confusing and you may lose direction temporarily. The challenge is to accept the important changes that are happening and let the transformative powers redefine your future goals. There seems to be a powerful storm shaking things up and bringing instability. In fact, this storm is rearranging your life so that you can emerge stronger going forward. Once this period is over, you will find yourself in much better circumstances. This period that you are experiencing is like the night moving towards the dawn, which will bring you closer towards new and exciting times ahead.

SUN SIGN OF THE MONTH

Leo (July 23 to August 22)

Leo is the fifth sign of the zodiac and its symbol is the Lion. A Leo native is easy to identify from his looks as they possess a dynamic personality and remarkable talents. Even when quiet a Leo is able to make an impact and leave an everlasting effect on others. A Leo native has great stamina and can work for hours without feeling tired. Their energy and endurance will impress others. A typical Leo is extremely dignified and refuses to do anything mean or low. They are honest, sincere, and do not indulge in deception. They want to possess the best and do the best.

A typical Leo is always hungry for position and authority. A Leo dislikes loneliness. Complete happiness for them means sharing their life with others. A Leo native loves to daydream and lives to fulfill those dreams. They do not like a boring life and, therefore, are always looking for exciting things to do. Leo people do have a negative side as well. First, they are highly short-tempered and have major ego problems. They will want others to obey them and move fast, while they themselves may be slow and lazy. A Leo always likes to advise others and tell them what to do. They would like to rule the world, and love power, fame, and fortune.

This month, Leos should give themselves a pat on the back and take pride in their new accomplishments. Your most recent efforts may bring you recognition and extra income that you deserve. You may be charged with extra energy and determination to make it big, but you should not take any unnecessary financial risks. Although you may feel some pressure in coping with demands at the office and at home, you will immensely enjoy your social life and the time you spend with friends and coworkers. You will also enjoy the company of young children, but your hectic schedule will give you much less time for other recreation and relaxation. Distant travel for pilgrimage or pleasure cannot be ruled out in the latter half of the month.

At home, you need to play a role of a supporter and not that of a critic to be appreciated by your family members. Children may look up to you for moral support and inspiration.
