A rare astrological alignment of planets will be occurring on August 17. Its effects last for a few days, but the results of what you do during these few days could last a lifetime.
Every year, the Sun opposes Neptune. The Sun rules the human ego and all of the foibles we stumble through as well as the occasional victories we earn. Neptune is the planet of illusion. This distant body influences our critical reasoning skills. Neptune can inspire masterpieces in artists and symphonies in musicians. It can be the glimmer of hope in a scientist testing a new theorem. And Neptune can be the influence that makes you think that someone is the perfect lover for you, whether he is or is not!
When the Sun opposes Neptune, our ego energy is quite susceptible to flattery and manipulation. Oppositions create tension and make the energies of one planet submit to that of the opposing cosmic body. The human ego often melts under this aspect, but just as likely this is an opportunity. The Sun’s opposition to Neptune offers people the chance to become the seducer rather than the seduced!
If this were just the annual opposition of these heavenly bodies, it would be ho hum, maybe you will say the right thing to a cute guy and he will start buying you jewelry. But the 2nd half of August will not be an average Sun-Neptune opposition. Simultaneous with the Sun’s opposition is harmony to Neptune from Mars. This is the planet of action in a fortunate relationship to the planet of illusion.
What this all means is that at the exact time of the year that good looking and successful men are at the easiest to be seduced into a long-term relationship taking a detailed course of action to seduce and land the man you want is favored by the stars.
