The Bob Marks
Monthly Forecasts
August 2017


Welcome to my monthly forecasts. These forecasts will help you understand the energies around you. The planets are constantly shifting and the universal energies affect our daily lives.

Each month I will guide you through the planetary movements and explain them in detail. Some months will have more astrological events than others but there will always be universal movements that will affect you.

That way, you can put it near your calendar and follow it day by day to know the energies around you.

What’s going to happen in August 2017?


There will be a Full Moon in Aquarius on August 7th: This is a Lunar Eclipse which makes it more powerful. Be careful of arguments in the relationship area. Expect some famous couples to break up this month.

There will be a New Moon in Leo on August 21: This is a Solar Eclipse. It is less than 2 degrees from the Fixed Star Regulus. This threatens rulers. However, if your birthday is on the 21st, this Eclipse can give you the power to overcome major obstacles.Harry Truman had an Eclipse on his birthday in 1948 and he won re-election against all odds.


August 5th, Saturday: Sun quincunx Neptune: Watch out for deception today, especially self-deception. Things are not what they seem.

August 9th, Wednesday: Sun quincunx Pluto: This is a good day to throw things out. But the more you throw out, the more things you find that need to be thrown out.

August 10th, Thursday: Mercury sextile Venus: This is a good day to make pleasant social contact with friends. Send those friendly texts. In addition, Mars quincunx Neptune: Neptune rules illusions and mirages. Make sure your goal is really there before you start going towards it. Also on this date, Sun sextile Jupiter: This can bring luck. It can also make you lazy and overconfident. The door of opportunity is open today, but you have to get up and go through the doorway!

August 12th, Saturday: Venus trine Neptune: This is a good day to spend some time with a special someone. Or you can go through the park and smell the flowers. Read a romantic novel. Enjoy! Also, Mercury turns Retrograde until September 5: The usual. Don’t start any major projects. Just continue projects you have already started. Or you can go back to projects you have previously put aside and finish them. Expect delays. Allow extra time for traveling.

August 13th, Sunday: Sun trine Saturn: A good day for taking care of routine tasks that you have been putting off.

August 15th, Tuesday: Venus opposes Pluto: Venus rules everything sweet. Pluto is extremes. Cut down on sweets today. Try to avoid power struggles in relationships. This is NOT a day for beauty treatments!

August 16th, Wednesday: Mars quincunx Pluto: Any argument or battle started today will tend to continue for a long time. Avoid conflict today.

August 17th, Thursday: Venus square Jupiter: Venus is pleasure, but the square from Jupiter means you may not know when to stop. Don’t overdo things. Avoid shopping today. You will tend to overspend.

August 18th, Friday: Venus quincunx Saturn: If you overdid things yesterday with that Venus square Jupiter, you will have regrets today! Avoid discussing serious relationship matters right now. Nothing will be settled there today.

August 20th, Sunday: Mars sextile Jupiter: This gives you the energy and enthusiasm to do big things. Unfortunately, Mercury is still Retrograde. Do not start big new projects. Just continue with what you have already started.

August 21st, Monday: Sun trine Uranus: This can make you want to do something new and exciting. Write down what you want to do and wait until after Mercury Retrograde is over (September 5). If you can’t wait, then do something really enjoyable that you haven’t done in a long time. That way, you will be breaking routine (Uranus). Since you will be going back to something, you will also be in tune with the Retrograde.

August 22nd, Tuesday: Mars trine Saturn: Hard work can seem more pleasant today. Get busy.

August 24th, Thursday: Venus square Uranus: This can bring sudden attractions. They probably won’t last. Wait a couple of days until this aspect is over and see if you still feel the same. What Uranus brings together suddenly, it can break apart just as quickly. Believe me, I know this one from personal experience.

August 26th, Saturday: Sun conjunct Mercury: This is good for fact-to-face conversations. Remember those? Meet in person. Don’t text.

August 27th, Sunday: Jupiter sextile Saturn: These two have been sextile by sign all year. This is the aspect that is keeping the economy running and the stock market from collapsing. In personal life, this is a good time to plan major, long-term projects. Ask yourself questions like: Where do I see myself in 5 years?

See you next month for the September 2017 Forecast
