Need some inspiration? Look up just after sunset!
At twilight, look near the constellation Scorpio, you will see Mars near Saturn. All month long, you can observe these planets getting closer to each other overhead just after sunset, and they meet exactly on August 24. This alignment of Mars conjoined Saturn is symbolic of marrying your passions with purpose.
Also at the end of August, look to the western horizon after sunset to catch a glimpse of the trickster planet Mercury near bright Venus and brilliant Jupiter. This planetary pattern signals an expanded focus (Jupiter) on heartfelt (Venus) and detailed communication (Mercury). Make sure to dot your i’s and cross your t’s with any and all communications. (This is especially important since MercuryRetrograde is August 30 - September 22) Repeat yourself if necessary and be sure to ask specific questions to make sure you understand what others are saying and you feel understood by those who matter most.
