August 2020 Monthly Horoscopes Are Posted

The August Monthly Horoscopes are up! Saturn is back on the juice, really over-extending his stay in Capricorn and as you may have gathered, Mars is moving into high-performance mode. In a month, there are usually a couple of edge dates that you mention but when looking at August it’s more a matter of okay, fine: Mars square everything, starting now.

But this is helpful, I hope, advice in there and of course, my Mars Mp3.

August also features Lilith, the Bible’s first divorcee and I am about to release a new astro-rant Mp3: The Astrological Guide To Divorce.  Stand by for an announcement re that and no, it’s not a hint. Audio-Zaps are back, briefly, and only for Mega Mystic members.  And imminently, a new Astro-Report!

Back to August – apart from Mars square everything and Pluto square Lilith/Eris-Persephone, there is a Full Moon in Aquarius. It’s already starting, not that the Moon is in Aquarius yet but the Sun square Uranus that’s part of the Full Moon alignment is happening.  As you will know from the most recent Daily Mystic, it’s going to be a particularly whacko string of news days – quite something to accomplish this year – but also an informative one.

Having said that, I’m going to try and news fast until at least after the Full Moon. I saw something about Mustang Panda cyber-attacking the Vatican and just thought fuq it: years ago, if I pictured myself living in a William Gibson/Matrix/Philip K Dick level dystopian metropolis, I thought it would be with fantastic hair and a Gaultier jumpsuit. But no, I have lockdown hair and just ordered an electro-sensitivity shielding t-shirt.

However, despite the bumpy fin de siecle ride of the next few months, I have good expectations for Uranus in Taurus and the Aquarius vibe of 2021 + beyond. See the Freak In About The Economy from last year – I still think that. Or (members) the Turbulent Times series.

So how is your Leo Season going?

Oh! Transiting Mars and Lilith are EXACT on my NN today, with Eris 2 degrees beyond, but there….Yikes! The sh*t has been hitting the proverbial fan the last week or so. I finally made my formal complaints to the owners of these apartments about the loud and retaliatory neighbors and it just hasn’t been going well at all. This has been going on a whole year. Completely insane and dysfunctional. I’m actively trying to move to another town right now, one that is smaller and near the coast up north. I have some friends there. I’m really not doing well… Read more »

Oi vey
this mars vibe
I’m on a loop – lurching between self guilting, towering snit and unexpected tearing up. I think these extremes are something I’m just figuring out how to balance. As if these times require a slower pace and more deliberate focus.
yes I realise that sounds trite but I am onto something

Love this picture for some reason it has drawn me to comment and there has been some wild & wondrous pictures posted. Maybe coz it looks like an island or the plant is unusual……….maybe just coz i like snakes. August is a fine month, so happy solar returns to the Leo Queens here (and KIngs if any). Such beautiful hearts they have.August also means the jasmine buds are starting to show.

Seriously though MM you were bang on about home sewing making a comeback. I think it fell out of favour a few decades ago and was seen as unsophisticated compared with unitards, legwarmers, permed hair and all things spandex. Now, particularly during lockdown when we have more time to complete projects and with a focus on mental health and community, it’s an ideal pasttime or hobby. The shopping high is still very much there and achievable via online fabric stores which are doing better than ever since Covid. You can still get the dopamine hit from that and obviously indulge… Read more »

My grandmother taught me hand sewing. Once use to collect silk & satin 20’s 30’s 40’s lingerie and repair or reinforce them using teeny tiny stitches. Sewing was taught in schools waaay back then and was wondering about the sewing thing just a few days ago and if youthz actually knew HOW to sew these days.Made a bikini once from a silk patterned ‘shoulder’ jacket of my mother’s. The fabric was so exotic, a pattern never to be seen again, khaki and forest green leaves on black background. You made slips (knickers) didn’t you? Head up, tummy in, heels and… Read more »

Hand sewing is the coolest! Obviously you get it Pegs because it (handsewing garments) is the ultimate in sophisticated identity crafting. Haute Couture beats the hell out of fast fashion and creativity beats consumption. Yes, I now make all the things by hand I used to buy, all the activewear, lingerie, bags, bedding, al of it. The past few days I’ve been sewing a traditional cotton/ linen blend shirt and the joy of contructing the collar, watching the fabric origami fit together – insanely satisfying. Don’t get me started on sleeve plackets please, I don’t want to offend anyone but… Read more »

Been researching jumpsuits actually this past week pretty obsessively. There’s a particular style from the 1940’s that everyone back then including Churchill (so much so he wore one when visiting the White House ) was mad about called the Siren Suit. Obviously I dig the name but what first turned me onto them was the gorgeous 40’s tailoring and the whole Rosie The Riveter vibe. I’m looking into this. More soon xx

yes! it’s my 5th house/ Chiron / Aries vibe which began demanding my attention in Oct 2019 Was super cool to note that in your Saturn Pluto rant you advised Virgos to pay attention to the 5th house. It has taken over my life actually. Somehow on unemployment benefits I’ve been able to budget my way into buying a sewing machine – late Oct and some fabric no prior experience or classes but youtube tutorials are free. Since then I haven’t stopped sewing. Literally every item of clothing I own I’ve made myself. Even underwear! I can make socks but… Read more »

I love this concept. It’s so on trend for this coming decade or however long this new phase will be. I feel like the whole aesthetic is changing dramatically to become more genuine and accessible. So many of the beauty and fashion standards that were accepted as timeless go to staples are just irrelevant to me now. Like high heels? LBD? Even the classic white shirt needs a rest imo. I’m never going to be that woman and would much rather have a comfy fawn or taupe brushed cotton shirt with some embroidery or patches (visible mending is gorgeous imo… Read more »

I absolutely agree with all of this, well said. I think this is long overdue and the pandemic is just moving forward a lot of overdue rethinking in an approach to lifestyle/life and fashion is reflecting this. I am a designer but out of practice for sewing/pattern alterations/drafting and getting my swing back but I am treating the whole thing like a brief. I have a hard time getting things to fit in all lengths/ ratios, so this is my best option. I also hate cheap suffocating fabrics and the politics of fast fashion. This is just a needed personal… Read more »

there’s this meta trend in the sewing community that was started accidentally by the minimalist machinist on instagram. It’s called the measurement movement and it grew out of sewists wanting to know each other’s measurements so they could figure out what tweaks and hacks to do on a specific pattern and if they’d be appropriate for them. On our insta profiles we have our measurements as part of our bio. The point of this to avoid having to answer lots of DMs re this and also, maybe even more as a way of saying, Look this is me, real me… Read more »

Yeah the DM and expectations are too much for me on any form of social (can you make me this for 5 dollars?…no….but why, I want this/ harass with 10 messages…and also the aesthetic/design component…) but I am glad people want to learn and connect. Less about the runway and more about fast fashion imo because they are making pattern blocks to sell to their ideal sizing while make the most cash possible (slave labour, materials, thin younger with disposable income and lifestyle to consume fast trends). The majority of people cannot afford high end and are not hitting the… Read more »

100% agree about fast fashion. totally rank I know it’s an appalling time and considering I have WiFi and a roof, clean water I’m in the minority and v privileged Coronavirus has been absolutely brutal on the fashion Industry and lots of industries like travel where the level of consumption was ridiculous and exploitative and everyone knew we had to change our ways but we kind of for the most part just didn’t I suppose one good thing about crisis is that change happens.

I know Zara is generally really affordable and that they stock obvious seasonal basics. I’m not knocking them (much) by saying it’s clear they are cutting so many corners to produce the inventory on that budget. Their creative department seems credible enough and I find their output palatable enough but yeah, there’s no fair or sustainable way to produce clothes at that price. Not without screwing several people over at various points in the supply chain. The garment workers (seamstresses and machinists) are obviously being massively underpaid for the customer to be able to get that jacket for £25. People… Read more »

Exactly, few can dodge it (and even less want to), the cycle is built to be a perfect trap. Companies like Inditex (biggest retailer in Europe next to HM and 6th richest person in the world) get massive tax breaks/ favours while the country is in debt to the EU so they can keep a giant float happening with huge mark ups, like Amazon and Apple in the USA etc.

Lilith, the Bible’s first divorcee! Well done, genius goddess energies are channelling through you. Women have never really had a proper guide for divorce, just this shame of the expectation you should keep the relationship and household together by your silence and sacrifice despite a (usu) masculine partner given traditional go ahead to not really put effort into being partner to the femme and the household, nor to be responsible for actual love and respect.

and we can´t wait until that changes.. loved the first divorcee status too. Like when you get married too young and your first Saturn returns reality checks you- you know its a lie to trap you in a relationship that clips your wings and make you the underpaid essential worker of the house

Well, (a) Myst, since you observed very clearly the dress code of William Gibson’s Pattern Recognition protagonist, you have reason to not be surprised while finding yourself surprisingly in that state as a personal political response to planetary concerns, and (b) even in that regard, we are mighty fortunate the Saturn we often feel so sour about has an extended and hopefully not so stoic, but more pragmatically resilient stay, under these guarded yet implosive times. I think politically we first build resilience THEN time will come where we may just have to stand up to maintain and push a… Read more »

My Aries sun at 21 deg with Lilith now at 21 deg and Eris at 24 deg Rx. Feeling this very strongly. I’ve asked mum to dig up her old Superbitch tshirt. I’ll wear it as a warning. I think that’s only fair.

Also, we say Aries energy is masculine, i suppose, but we all access that drive. Your beautiful wife is Katakan and a dancer. Dancers always find themselves with a hot and light footed dance partner for the slice of their lives that changes everything. All dancers are flexible and rigorous with themselves, for they absolutely hold the Dance. T-Rex got that in a song- which one, don’t you know it 🤩😘 ? Noone else in a Dancer’s orbit can be as free flowing and loose without the Dancer Central.

Too real. I was watching Until The End of The World (5 hour sci-fi-ish Wim wenders movie) last week and wishing the dystopian future was that stylish.

Apparently the original release was the 2.5 hour cut the studio made him put out. You can get a free 2 week trial of the Criterion Channel and they have the 5 hour one that he saved and got a release in the last few years! It was my first time seeing any version of it.
