In episode 166 astrologers Kelly Surtees and Austin Coppock join the show to talk about the astrological forecast for August of 2018.
August features Uranus stationing retrograde for the first time in Taurus, the last of a series of solar eclipses in Leo that started last year, Mars retrograding back into Capricorn and then stationing direct, and more.
At the top of the show we discuss the process of writing horoscopes, and some of the challenges associated with it, after Chris’ recent foray into making monthly horoscopes.
