This month, your focus will be on finances. Two powerful Eclipses will fall in the axis of your chart that connects to money you earn and money that comes to you from any other source. By the end of the month, you'll be able to implement key changes that will ultimately lead to financial empowerment.
What must happen first, however, is an ending. This ending doesn't have to be negative. In fact, it can be something to celebrate. On August 7, a Lunar Eclipse in your 8th House of Shared Resources might indicate that you're ready to pay off a major chunk of debt you owe. Another possibility is that you will cash out one of your investments. If this happens, it won't feel like a loss because the money will be going towards an expense that you are very happy to pay. One example of this is your child's college tuition.
Mercury does turn retrograde on August 12, so until September 5, you might want to be extra careful with all communications-related matters. Avoid signing new contracts or making new agreements. If you're traveling, allow extra time for delays, and make sure your car is in tip top shape.
The Solar Eclipse on August 21 will really make you smile. This is when a new source of income opens up for you. It could be significant.
