Mars moves into Leo on August 29 where the pushy sentiments and bursts of tears in Cancer will be replaced by high drama surfacing around entitlements from young people feeling like they deserve a car, or the right job (even though they haven't earned it) to wealthy people and corporations receiving entitlements from the government on the tax-payer's dime. When Mars transits through Cancer, we feel entitled, and rightly so, to food, nourishment and self-care, but when Mars moves into Leo, it's more about extravagance and receiving attention, if not time on the proverbial soapbox. Just make sure that your topic isn't all about you because people will grow tired of the "me me me" attitude quickly under the conditions of the Cardinal T-Square. Uranus in Aries will bolster Mars in Leo, up until a point. Whereas, the inconjunct to Pluto will cause some friction. Enough with the posturing already, says Pluto, get real and get down to business.
That beautiful Grand Water Trine we experienced with Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune fades early in the month as Jupiter pushes ahead. However, we still experience a trine with Saturn and Neptune which at least helps us ground our dreams in reality. If Neptune in his own sign Pisces grows to wishy washy, Saturn will take care of that by making Neptune take stock.
The Sun in Leo squares the North Node in Scorpio the first week of the month with the North Node forming an inconjunct with Uranus in Aries and a trine with Chiron. This tells me that we will look deeper at how we see ourselves in the world. We will consciously seek out our true identity, but this will feel disruptive or that we aren't able to receive a clear message with erratic Uranus involved. Childhood issues will surface for healing now, especially for people with Chiron in Pisces or its opposite sign Virgo, but Chiron in Gemini and Sagittarius folks need to pay attention too. Could all this come in the form of an identity crisis? Most of this energy will happen below the surface since the North Node, Uranus and Chiron are all retrograde during this period.

We were blessed in July with the Grand Water Trine and so will feel like we're coming off of what felt like a vacation from the daily grind when August arrives. The first week in August will feel like the most difficult as it forces us to delve into our psyches and do necessary healing of emotional issues. If we feel anger, resentment, bitterness or any other challenging emotion, we will see this reflected in the outer world, either directly or indirectly. We will also experience Juno in Aquarius opposing Vesta in Leo the first week of August, which again puts women in the spotlight. Women will grow tired of images projected upon them and seek their true identities.
You'll probably hear a lot of roaring at this time too from women who have felt like "kept" or "confined" women. The dichotomy of the whore verses the virgin and the queen that thinks she rules the palace, but is really mentally and emotionally kept in the dark. Women will confront feeling like puppets or supermodels with a cause. Meaning, it's what we do as women that counts more and not how we look doing it. Since we think of the earth as female, Mother Earth, she will also rebel against mistreatment and abuse of her natural resources.
To repeat the lines at the end of Patricia Roxema's cinematic version of Jane Austen's Mansfield Park, "It could have happened that way, but it didn't." Meaning, all the scenarios I present here are probable, but changeable. Does anyone really know what the future has in store for us, especially when we are dealing with multiple dimensions and possible interpretations of the planets' conversations in the vast Universe?
