Feeling impulsive, impatient and frustrated? Well you’re right in line with all the rest of us.  August began with the rare exact triple conjunction between Mars, Uranus and the North Node that hasn’t happened for over 2,000 years, so it is very important.  The fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) will be feeling this period strongly. This may appear as great restlessness in your life, the urge for freedom, intensity, or sudden radical changes coming from the outside.  This energy (and each of us) demands freedom and does not like to obey the rules. It suggests hot and dry weather, drought conditions in some areas and flash floods in others – this is already occurring. It is combustible and unsettling. However, it has great purpose in that it is an accelerated push to collapse the old systems and breakthrough to the new, and a higher state of being. We will all be affected in some way as this is a period of accelerated evolution unlike anything we have ever known. Therefore, it has great purpose and an extremely positive outcome, but will be rocky at some levels.  The best way to get through it positively is to stay flexible and keep the ability to pivot quickly to circumstances if necessary.
