If you want to wish upon a star, you may be better off in the Northern Hemisphere this month. The annual Perseid meteor shower should show a shower of silvery streaks between August 10 and 13. Such spectacles confer, upon all who witness them, a traditional entitlement to seek a boon from the cosmos. But as if to demonstrate that the universe is fair, August 4 provides a special chance, Down Under, to take in the rare, stunning sight of the Moon passing in front of Saturn. For us all, that signifies a month when wild hope triumphs over dull convention.
I've got lots more to tell you about the month ahead in your new August video. People say that my audio and video forecasts are 'spookily accurate'. Try them and see for yourself (for free) here.
