In episode 118 of the podcast astrologers Kelly Surtees and Austin Coppock join the show to discuss the astrology of August of 2017.
The main highlight of the month of course is the much-hyped solar eclipse that is set to take place in Leo, and will cut across the entire continental United States.
The month also features a lunar eclipse in Aquarius, a Mercury retrograde in Virgo/Leo, stations of Uranus and Saturn, the final square of Jupiter and Pluto, and more.
Later in the episode we also highlight one auspicious electional chart that can be used for starting different types of ventures and undertakings, using the principles of electional astrology.
As always, the artwork for this episode comes from the 2017 Planet Watcher astrology calendar.
