August 2019 Astrology Forecast: Leo and Virgo Stelliums

Episode 216 features the astrological forecast for August of 2019, with astrologers Kelly Surtees, Austin Coppock, and Chris Brennan.

In the first part of the episode we catch up on Kelly and Austin’s recent moves, and reflect on coming out of the other side of the difficult transits in June and July, and then in the second part of the show we get into the forecast for August.

The first half of August features a bunch of inner planets moving into Leo and trining Jupiter in Sagittarius, while the second part of the month has many of the same planets forming a stellium in Virgo.

Later in the episode we also present one auspicious electional chart for starting different types of ventures and undertakings this month.

  • I have Saturn exactly conjunct ascendant and I had a twin who died in utero ……..Also Stan Grof has allot of writing on the Birth Matrix’s which I use in my astrology work and Cranial Sacral work…..

  • Hello , I am a beginner. I was born Dec 31, 1989 and after digging into my funny looking chart, I’m learning I am from the Capricorn Stellium ? Do you have any advice on where to get my chart read, in regards to the current astrological positions and all of these connections ? Thank you !

  • You mentioned on the podcast that Solar Fire is going to be available for Mac computers. I went to the Astrolabe site and didn’t see anything mentioned. Wondering if I misheard.

    • They have been working on it behind the scenes for a while, and it is supposed to come out eventually, but no firm release date has been set as far as I know.

  • I have a fairly interesting birth story I thought I’d share and feel there’s an awful lot of symbolism in it! I was born in Hong Kong at 11:45am on 1st nov 1983 on the tail end of a typhoon. There was an attack at the airport (2 drunk soldiers!) and an explosion of gunpowder (fireworks) on the mountain – I know this because of my dad’s job there at the time. I was a breach birth, but had the cord wrapped round my neck 3 times so strangled myself on the way out. The doctor at one point declared there was no foetal heart beat however once out and the cord removed I was pretty vocal apparently. Poor mum lost a lot of blood and needed a transfusion (or 2 maybe?!). Interestingly my younger brother was also breach and had the cord wrapped his neck, but was a Caesarian birth and asleep when delivered… the family have always attributed these birth stories to our very different personalities!

  • Chris: would getting solar fire NOT configured to Mac be a big pain compared to just waiting til the Mac version comes out? I really need to get it, but worried about jumping the gun.

    • The only issue with the Mac version is that they have been promising that it would be out soon for what seems like forever now, and I have no real idea of how soon it will actually be released. Could be later this year, or there could be more delays. Who knows.

  • I was an emergency c-section, nearly one week late (due 9/26; born 10/2/81), with Mars conjunct my ascendant. Melissa LaFara said my chart reflects it: Moon, Venus and Uranus in Scorpio (lots of Scorpio usually meaning an intense birth for the mother), Uranus signaling emergency situations, and Mars representing the surgeon’s scalpel cutting me out at the exact right moment!

  • Ex has Mars conjunct ASC partile. He was born premature. The funny story here is that he and two other members of a band he was in always arrived early for gigs, which is quite unusual for musicians. While waiting for the others to arrive, they discovered in conversation that they were all born premature!
