Intelligent Uranus goes retrograde on August 7, giving you ample time to philosophize and think deeply about issues that matter to you personally and to the world. You might be surprised (in a good way, hopefully) to learn how much goes on behind the scenes when you pull back the curtain. The moon feels at home in your emotional sign on the eighth and puts you in touch with your innermost thoughts and feelings. You won?t fool anyone by saying you don?t care when you so clearly do. A Jupiter-Neptune retrograde trine on August 19 encourages optimism and suggests you look to your community for the closeness you?ve been yearning for. You get a lot of support through civic programs, and your life takes on new meaning when you contribute your time, money, or both to charitable causes that really mean something to you. A Venus-Pluto retrograde square on the twenty-sixth has you exploring your romantic insecurities and may have you wondering why you?ve made some of the choices that you have. If you?ve always been attracted to the wrong types of partners, you might be able to figure out why during this transit.
