An update on our Lunar / Solar eclipse calendar for August:
The August 7th Full “Grain” Moon [in Aquarius, for those interested] marks a double eclipse portal, opening with a partial Full Moon Lunar Eclipse and closing with a Total New Moon Solar Eclipse on 21st! That one will be visible in the United States, so prepare for daylight turning into twilight. This one is also called the Great American Total Solar Eclipse, So lucky people over there, enjoy!
The eclipses are accompanied by many planets [including Mercury] going retrograde [again, for those interested! 😉 ]
but, as I’m no expert, here’s a forecast from someone who is:

I like that colour, like emerald colour. Happy August.
Me too! Thank you, Hilal. Happy August to you too! 🙂
Those are the colors of August! Normally August means glaring sun, and the heat roasting the remaining garden veggie plants, but this year we’ve had so much rain, there’s still green, too ( and the tropical plants are making the most of it.
Summer snowman, smiles from al that will intersect.
Happy August and hope your week is full of warm adventures!
I’m glad your greens have managed to survive! Ours are also hanging in there with the heatwaves we’ve been having. Thankful for the north winds today. Also very thankful for your visit! You too have a beautiful August and sunny [not too hot] week, Phil! 🙂
Your creations are always such a delight to me Marina. There has been a lot going on, but I always will have time to visit you! Hugs and blessings my dear sister!

Thank you, my dear friend. And a very colorful and creative [although I wonder how much more creative one can be! 😉 ] August to you, Andrew! 🙂
Good and cheerful – may stop me ‘going retrograde’ about the onset of fall / autumn… RH
Ha ha, yes, that’s the idea! 🙂 Cheers! Happy August, my friend.
Your 8 makes me smile Marina, it’s such a human number in its form, like the snowman of the summer, and you have given it the colours of summer. And when the figure falls over, it’s infinity!
Thank you for Kari, I was entranced through her whole presentation, I think I’m in love! Please include her in your post every month…
Summer Snowman! Perfect!!!! It is human shaped and if I may add, in a feminine way! I’m glad you enjoyed Kari’s forecast. She does have a contagious joy, doesn’t she? 🙂 Trust her to brighten any cloudy day!
Such beautiful colours Marina, and May Eight unfold to be a perfect month.. and exciting about the New Moon Solar Eclipse of the 21st… I know how excited I was seeing a partial eclipse of the Sun via the moon here in the UK.. And now to watch that forecast.. 🙂
Wishing you a peaceful rest of the week my friend
Oh, indeed, may it unfold to a perfect month! 2 eclipses, one is on the coming Full Moon [partial Moon eclipse], the other is the total Solar one. It’s going to be an exciting month! On the forecast, I like Kari because she is contagiously happy! 😉 xxxxxxxxxx
