Your 8th house of regeneration became powerful on July 22 and is even more powerful this month. A major focus. A Solar Eclipse on the 21st occurs in this house adding to its importance.

When the 8th house is strong we are concerned with death – not just physical death but the death of old conditions and circumstances. The cosmos urges us to get rid of the impediments to further progress and this takes many forms. Perhaps there is too much clutter in our life. The home is filled with things we don’t need or use. This is so for the physical body and the emotional life too. There is a need to get rid of the substances or emotional patterns that are no longer necessary. Perhaps at one time they were needed – they are not necessarily bad – but now they are just ‘clutter’.

We have two eclipses this month so it is a tumultuous kind of month. However, you don’t seem overly affected, compared with other signs. Still it won’t hurt to reduce your schedule over these periods.

The Lunar Eclipse of the 7th occurs in the money house. Thus you’re forced to make important financial changes. (Finances are good this month, by the way, and most likely your strategy was too pessimistic.) Every Lunar Eclipse tests the love life and the current relationship – you went through this in February. Be more patient with the beloved and try not to make things worse than they need to be. The grievances and dramas that arise can be a stepping stone to an even better relationship. Business partnerships also get tested. Mars, your family planet is affected here. Thus there are shakeups at home; perhaps repairs are needed. A parent or parent figure has personal dramas. Emotions run high in the family.

The Solar Eclipse of the 21st occurs right on the cusp (border) of your 8th and 9th houses and impacts on both of them. Thus there are dramatic financial changes for the spouse, partner or current love – it’s not just you. Business partnerships are also getting tested (financially). Because the 9th house is involved here, students at college level are making more changes to their educational plans – this also happened in February. There are more shakeups in your place of worship. Once again, as in February, there are encounters with death. This is not any sort of punishment (the planets never punish), only a kindly reminder to get on with the really important things of life – the reason you were born.
