Astrology for Healers and Therapists for August 2017

 

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.

 

The sudden and fundamental change half way through last month has left a number of people wondering what on earth happened. Let’s look.

 

The week beginning the 6th August looks as if it is full steam ahead again. Venus has moved into Cancer.  There are few aspect lines but note there are now four retrograde planets as Uranus also turns seemingly around.  The change of sign has considerable influence here.

 

Cardinal moves to the fore with 5 signs, Fixed has lost a sign as has Mutable. Air has lost a sign to Earth.

Although both Saturn and Neptune are aspected once more there are few additional influences. However the Modal change and more permanent aspects show that nettles have been grasped again and progress will be made.  The ‘fated’ quality or ‘faithfulness’ that covers the chart has grown and now reflects an attitude of acceptance and letting go to higher powers or influences.  Hmmm!

 

Counsellors – Clients will generally be most willing to work. Some may try to tell you what to do but most will accept your professional lead.

 

Healers – like last month that predominance in Cardinal mode must indicate an urge to ‘do’ something. What a temptation just to go ahead, but should you really go ahead without letting your patients take responsibility for their own well-being?  It may be your expertise at work here but not your life that is being worked upon.  No slurs intended for I am sure everyone reading this is most professional.

  The week of the 13th August sees change in the air.  Although there are no new planetary changes of sign (except the Moon – of course), there are far more aspect lines.  A T-Square has appeared on Jupiter formed with Venus and Pluto.  Uranus no longer challenges Pluto but forms a line of ease with the Sun / Mars conjunction.  Saturn has a line of ease with Jupiter, Neptune has one with Venus and Pluto one with Mercury.  Notice Mercury appears stationary in the heavens.

 

Cardinal has lost a sign to Fixed but the Elemental scene is unchanged.

There will probably be quite a few significant ‘finds’ and subsequent steps taken this week. Not all will be pleasant but all will be profound.  Quite a few might have a relationship or sexual content that will have a power to shock.

 

Counsellors – Generosity of spirit is going to take a real knock for your Clients. Forgiveness might be impossible and denial very likely.  Go easy with them.

 

Healers – There is still considerable power available and more readily adaptable or useful this week. Prayer has a very real presence and subtle energies will prove themselves again and again.

The week beginning the 20th August sees the line of ease from Neptune gone and a lessening of the one from Uranus. Note Uranus is now challenging Venus.  The T-Square is still present but is losing some of its power.

 

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

The acceptance of higher powers or fate is still very much in evidence but a degree of consolidation is taking place along with determination to get things done.

 

Counsellors – You might find the Leonine trait of dominance unsettling in some of your Clients. They might challenge you rather than you challenge them!  They might also be tending to hide behind that fated-ness rather than take responsibility for any obviously self-made mistakes.  Good luck1

 

Healers – Fire is going to cloud the issues and Heart and Small Intestine meridians will have to be looked at. Emotional reaction will mask rational decision making, and this may well bring on psychosomatic conditions.

 

  The week beginning 27th August and change is obvious.  The Sun has moved into Virgo and is now conjunct with Mercury.  Saturn has changed direction in the heavens and is now moving forwards again.  The T-Square has disappeared as has the opposition between Neptune and Mercury.  Uranus has formed a line of ease with Mars as has Neptune with the transient Moon.

 

Cardinal has lost a sign to Mutable whilst Fire has lost a sign to Earth.

Whatever stance was taken over the last two weeks has paid off – at least for those who grasped the opportunities presented to them. Fortune favours the brave!!  Note that the virtuous Virgo is not the prude but a real ethical standard looks to have been embraced.

 

Counsellors – I would think that several of your Clients could well finish their respective series of sessions at this point. Don’t try to fix things that are not broken.

 

Healers – The power of the Elemental scene has faded this week and a ‘coasting’ has taken its place. The dearth of Air might be picked up now where it would have be obscured in past weeks.

 

Life is never dull.
