Astrology for Healers and Therapists for August 2018

 

Before I look at this month’s charts I must point out that the interpretation is mainly for therapists dealing with problematic situations.  That is why I seem to emphasise the problem or negative side of life rather than the positive.  Of course the charts indicate a general situation but the leaning must be for those clients or patients who are struggling in some way.

 

First do please note that the following is using the WESTERN FOUR ELEMENT system based in western magical and astrological understanding.  The individual therapist must make the translation to the Eastern Five Element system that is usual in Shiatsu and Acupuncture theory.  If you have forgotten the explanation about Elemental and Modal make up then do refresh your memory by looking back at the Introduction to Astrology for Healers and Therapists.

 

I look at the charts for the Sundays in August when the Sun is nearing the mid heaven for that day.  Obviously this is for Haye Mill, so you will have to accept the approximation for your own geographical position but the interpretation should not vary too much from this one.  It is a way of following the general trends throughout the month.  Notice there are 4 Sundays in this month once again.

 

Last month deteriorated fast with the last week showing degrees of panic. Can we hope for a less emotional month?

 

The week beginning the 5th August looks to be both a relief and a relapse. The relief is that the T-Square on Uranus has gone but the relapse is that there is a temporary one on the Sun and Mercury as the Moon races round the sky this weekend.  The pressure is off Neptune as the line of challenge is replaced by a line of ease from Jupiter.  The line of ease from Venus to Pluto is changed to Mars and the challenge between Venus and Neptune disappears.  Venus does challenge Saturn though.

 

The Modal scene is unchanged from last week but Air has lost a sign to Earth.

This looks as if there is an emotional challenge to personal authority with doubt growing almost to a perpetual state of fear of making a mistake. There is little balanced thinking but a lot of reactive reticence.

 

Counsellors – It would seem that the harder you challenge the less progress you will make with your Clients this week. Store up examples for a more conducive and productive atmosphere.

 

Healers – Spleen and Stomach meridians are obvious points of imbalance, but so also are Lung and Large Intestine.

  The week of the 12th August sees the long sought after relief as a temporary Grand Trine is formed between Saturn, Uranus and the Moon.  Yet another planet apparently changes direction as Uranus has gone retrograde and Venus has moved into Libra.

 

Fixed has lost a sign to Cardinal and Earth has lost a sign to Air.

I believe that there will be a profound sense of Fate or other spiritual forces at play that leaves most people questioning the whole idea of predestination! That or accepting heavenly influence.

 

Counsellors – It is not your place to philosophise. By all means let your Clients do so but stay away from other disciplines and concepts that you are not trained in.  Yield not to temptation!

 

Healers – Although there is not all that much difference from last week the intensity of the energetic scene has diminished. Things should be easier.

The week beginning the 19th August reveals a more lasting Grand Trine, this time formed with the Sun rather than the Moon.  The line of challenge by Venus to Saturn has gone as has the line of ease from Venus to Mars.  They have been replaced by lines of ease, one to Mercury and the other to the fast moving Moon.  Notice Pluto now appears to be unaspected and Mercury is stationary in the heavens.

 

Fixed has lost another sign to Cardinal and Air has lost a sign to Fire.

Although the self doubt has lifted there is still little thought taking place. Individuals are tired of the constant struggles and prepared to take action to ease things but at what cost?

 

Counsellors – You should be able to challenge effectively once again but do not expect much more than reactive response. What you challenge will reflect more about you than your Clients, so be careful.

 

Healers – The lack of Air is all too apparent but it will not just be asthma or respiratory problems that will occur. Don’t forget the Lung and Large Intestine related issues.

  The week beginning 26th August shows the Grant Trine hanging on, despite the Sun moving into Virgo. Venus has lost its lines of ease and now challenges Pluto.  Jupiter has a line of ease with Pluto, whilst Mars challenges Uranus.  Mercury has resumed a forwards movement and Mars appears stationary.

 

Fixed loses yet another sign, this time to Mutable, and Fire loses a sign to Earth and to Water.

Water and Earth make mud, and it is likely that there will be little or no movement this week on any issue facing individuals. As the retrograde planets begin to move forwards the remaining four still exert sufficient influence to suggest that sense of destiny or Fate has not gone away yet.  In fact there will be a sense of blinkered self righteousness at times, relying on being right as Guides or God indicate.

 

Counsellors – Don’t be too concerned if nothing seems to be happening. Just do your professional best.  It is not your problem.

 

Healers – the imbalance is going to be a growing problem this week. With so little Fire and Air it will be more a working or investing in the future unfurling or unfolding of potential you put into place now.

 

Life is very mysterious and bewildering at times.
