Wow! There's a lot happening this month, between the two August eclipses and multiple planetary contacts. Do you feel the change in the air? On August 6th, Mars opposed Uranus, always a signature of unexpected changes which can liberate us from old restrictions. Or did that sudden release of tension got you into trouble! :)

Did you work with the energies on 8-8-8? Of course by now you know that the Chinese picked the start of the Olympics on 8-8-8 because they consider it a very lucky number. 8 is also associated with manifestation, with the manifestation of Heaven on Earth, with regeneration and transformation. 8 is about possibilities. Triple 8's signify the process of consciously working with that regenerative power – or if ignored, manifesting the karma you bring on yourself. (Perhaps John Edwards is feeling this?)

If you want to clarify your personal vision, I'm offering an Eclipse special. $25.00 for a mini reading to see where this year's eclipses fall in your chart and how they are evolving your soul. Offer is good until Fall Equinox.

Here's some interesting information from astrologer Kathryn Cassidy : From August 9 to August 18th, the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn can all be seen in the nighttime sky., (The 3 furthest planets are also in the nighttime sky.)

Look for Mercury, Venus, and Saturn in the West at sunset, Mars will be a bit higher in the Western sky, and Jupiter will be near the Moon before the eclipse. While there's no clear information about what this rare occurrence means (it happens once in a decade or more) I would say that, symbolically, the planets are free to synergistically operate on a more intuitive level. Since none of the planets will be hidden by the Sun's light, these cosmic energies will bypass our conscious mind and work directly with our unconscious. So, spend time outside stargazing (there are meteor showers too!), then turn your attention inside on your dreams, on meditation and on imagining what kind of life you want to create for yourself and the world.

With Mercury, Venus, Saturn and Mars in Virgo, there will also be a series of conjunctions to look for in the sky. Conjunctions unite two different energies as well as being close together in the night sky. All that Virgo energy is asking us to simplify, to organize and to integrate any new information that will help us achieve our goals. So look for virginal Venus (yes, she does have a virginal aspect) to connect to responsible Saturn on August 13th, asking you to listen to that inner voice that's saying, “Take care of yourself!” Then practical Mercury will get focused with Saturn on August 15th to figure out how to make that happen. Finally Mercury will communicate with Venus about the deeper meaning of what's been happening this month on August 21st.

These Virgo planets will trine Jupiter in Capricorn and Vesta in Taurus, forming a grand trine in earth, helping us ground in the information we receive during the eclipse. So work the energies consciously and continue to create a life that fits your values and your vision.

Cathy Pagano is the author of a new book, "Wisdom's Daughters: How Women Can Change the World". Cathy trained at the C. G. Jung Institut-Zurich in dream interpretation, then got her M.A. in Counseling Psychology in Feminine Spirituality, and along the way became a certified Life Coach. As an astrologer and storyteller, she weaves the Cosmic Stories written in the stars and from The Bard's Grove, comments on emerging archetypal themes in movies. Cathy works with the tools of the imagination - dreams, alchemy, myths, astrology, symbolic language, storytelling, ritual - to awaken the Soul's wisdom.

I believe that Americans are called to a higher consciousness at this point in our history. We are called on to live up to our ideals and create the country our forefathers imagined. Inner consciousness needs to be acted upon for social justice.

Cathy believes that our writers and artists must take up our responsibility to create art that inspires, teaches and heals our humanity.

Cathy writes about political, psychological/spiritual, and cultural issues.
