August 2021 Astrology Forecast: Jupiter Returns to Aquarius

August 2021 Astrology Forecast: Jupiter Returns to Aquarius

In episode 312 we look at the astrological forecast for August of 2021, with astrologers Austin Coppock, Chris Brennan, and special guest co-host Chani Nicholas.

August begins with Jupiter having just retrograded back into Aquarius, which it had left when it moved into Pisces on May 13, returning for some unfinished business from earlier in the year.

August also features Uranus stationing direct in Taurus, and the second of two Full Moon’s in Aquarius, with the first having occurred in late July.

Chani is filling in this month for Kelly, and she is the author of the book You Were Born for This: Astrology for Radical Self-Acceptance, as well as the creator of the CHANI astrology app for iPhone.

This episode is available in both audio and video versions below.

  • Women’s Prison Book Project! I don’t have many astrology books that I don’t refer to but I do have a few and will be sending them.
    Hits close to home as we all need something to lift our spirits and create ‘feel good’ energy for others. What better than astrology?

  • Kia ora Chris
    I stumbled onto your site in the last month and have watched a few podcasts now. This one was delightful. You and your guests remind me of astrology sportscasters, discussing the play by play of the life, with it’s drama, set backs and hopefully a metal at the finish!

    Like you, I am one of the “fixed sign” people under pressure this year, so it was very enjoyable to listen to three intelligent people with good character and big hearts, kick around what’s coming next and offering your best takes on how to successfully roll with it all.

    And I very much appreciate how professionally you put your podcasts together. The hard work you put in shines through everything I have listened to so far, your transcripts, blog, etc. Good job!
