If you feel as though things just aren’t going your way and that August has been a bad month for you so far, there might be a good reason behind it. In fact, there’s a report that says that moms and dads shouldn’t be surprised if their lives are about to be turned upside down, especially when a partial solar eclipse happens during Mercury retrograde. In other words, you can expect all sorts of drama in the coming weeks.
Mercury retrograde can make you feel like you are trapped in a really bad episode of a television series you’d rather not be a part of. Unfortunately for parents – and most of humanity involved – a partial solar eclipse during Mercury retrograde will cause some havoc, some miscommunication, and a lot of questions left with no answers.
Astrologer Jamie Partridge suggests that the challenging aspects to Jupiter and Pluto might bring a lot of disagreements and arguments about ideas and belief along with a struggle over control issues. If this sounds like you, or your everyday relationship with your partner, keep reading.

To complicate matters even more, Mars, Neptune, Pluto, Uranus, and Saturn are also in retrograde. This means you can expect some sort of communication mishap this month as the new moon and partial solar eclipse come together. But instead of arguing over the small stuff, Jamie Partridge suggests that you simply move on from the arguments. He also says that you should use the power of the new moon and solar eclipse to start things fresh.
According to Bustle, he says, "Write your new goals down on a sheet of paper. The best time for making a new start is from the solar eclipse to the Aug. 26 full moon. A new moon influence lasts for four weeks, but a solar eclipse usually lasts about six months.
In addition, take this time to mediate and think about all of the things you want and how you want to achieve your own goals. Instead of dreaming about the life that you desire, live it. This is especially true if you have been saying yes when in fact, you should have been saying no this entire time. The August 2018 partial solar eclipse and new moon will also give you courage to put yourself first. As a parent that might seem almost impossible, but it’s not.
"This new moon brings bold and individualistic, though dominating, feelings to the forefront," Pandora Astrology noted on its website. Expect people, including yourself, to be less willing to take orders from others as the two luminaries occupy the regal and commanding sign of Leo."
