Happy August, Star Gazers! July was a hard month to beat for astrology and astronomy fans alike. The NEOWISE comet was visible to the naked eye for a ton of folks, there was a refreshing penumbral eclipse on July 4, and many of the key planetary rulers were in retrograde.
August is shaping up to be a mellower, but no less engaging month for every sign in the Zodiac.
Mercury is in direct motion the entire month (phew), and Venus ends her four-month residency in Gemini. The full moon is in Aquarius on August 3 for some emotional reinvigoration as we round the corner on summer.
