Let’s get down to business! You’re showing the people around you what you’re made of this month, starting with showing them what you’re passionate about. You may have had people tell you in the past that you don’t have what it takes to take down the competition, but odds are, they’re not aware of just how tenacious you can be. With the Sun moving into your 6th house on August 22nd, you’re moving from a time of creativity to a time of discipline, where you’ll be able to create habits that serve you better than certain habits given to you by people who didn’t understand how your mind worked. You might have been following a script that was handed to you, but the Full Moon in Aquarius rising in your 11th house on August 11th may change the way that you relate to other people. You can love someone without fully changing yourself to try to follow the path they set for your life. Follow your heart in August, because your passion and intuition may lead you back to that interest that you set down in the past to try to make someone else happy. Stop worrying about what other people will think, and follow that dream!
Even though it’s technically Leo and Virgo’s seasons this month, your sign is still seeing quite a bit of activity. We kick off the month with Mars conjunct Uranus in Taurus creating bold and surprising changes in your life. You might have thought that you had set out the perfect path for yourself a few months ago, but now that you’ve been living the dream for a while now, it may not be your dream anymore. You might also have grown apart from a group of people that had inspired you in the past, and now you could be ready to pivot and take on a new dream. Delays could happen for you around August 7th, with Mars in Taurus square Saturn in Aquarius, but Venus in Cancer trine Neptune in Pisces will help you to slow down and smell the roses. The Full Moon in Aquarius could bring career changes that affect your personal life, possibly giving you more control over your time spent working. Uranus goes retrograde in your sign on August 24th, which may be when you begin to decide on the changes you want to make now that you may have more control, getting into the minutia of the planning. Don’t be afraid to reinvent yourself!
It’s time for you to speed things up this month! The first half of the month may be slower than the second half, with activity in your 12th house creating a lack of energy and willpower. The Full Moon in Aquarius may bring you wisdom and travel on the 11th, so be open to opportunities presented to you then, even if you feel drained. Mars enters your sign on August 20th, entering your 1st house and adding more clarity and energy. Paradoxically, you might be wanting to settle down at the same time, since the Sun enters your 4th house on August 22nd, but it’s more likely that you’ll start tackling issues with your home in order to make it more comfortable to live in, in addition to being more active with your family and close friends. The Uranus retrograde in your 12th house on August 24th can help you figure out your spiritual path, so you may want to spend more time meditating in order to set good habits for this time. Paying more attention to your dreams could also benefit you now, as the 12th house is the realm of dreams, and what you need to change in your life could be more clear in your sleeping life than in your waking life. Dive deep inside, and see what you find!
Love and friendship is in focus for you this month, but transformations in your relationships are likely. Venus is in your sign until August 11th, when it moves into your 2nd house and helps to improve your security and your finances. On August 7th, Venus trine Neptune in Pisces can help you to manifest what you want in your life when it comes to love and money, but Mars square Saturn on the same day could have an argument crop up with your relationships that you’re already a part of. The next day, on August 8th, Venus opposite Pluto in Capricorn could break down a power imbalance that you have in a romantic relationship or in a friendship, and it may be messy at first. The Full Moon in Aquarius happens to also be on August 11th, and the need to reevaluate a close relationship may make itself known during this time. If they’re unable to change their actions in order to create a balanced dynamic between you, then it might be time to move on from this relationship. Treat others how you would like to be treated, but if they refuse to show you the same kindness in return, level up your standards and find the exit.
You’re basking in the glow of your season, but new responsibilities might have you more focused on them than on yourself. Mars conjunct Uranus in Taurus on August 1st can create havoc when it comes to your responsibilities or your work life, and you might be scrambling all over to try to make sure you’re keeping all the balls you’re juggling in the air. With the Full Moon rising in your 7th house on August 11th, you can see how your relationships are serving you, and since you may have less time to spend with friends this month, make sure that you’re showing love to the people that really care about you. The fair-weather friends will need to take a backseat now, and it’s okay to be choosy with how you’re spending your time. The 14th may create delays for you with the Sun in Leo opposite Saturn in Aquarius, and it might feel like time or authority figures are holding you back from doing what you really want to. Not to worry, because big changes coming in with the New Moon in Virgo on the 27th will help you to break out of the monotony and make real strides in your relationships as well as your creativity.
Your season is upon us! While you’ve still got a bit of Leo season to go through for the first part of the month, when the Sun enters your sign on the 22nd, you can expect some revitalization. Some uncomfortable adjustments may need to be made when it comes to your daily routine and your habits, because you might be lacking organization for the first part of the month, and this could come back to haunt you on the 11th, with the Full Moon in Aquarius in your 6th house. This outcome for you surrounding this Full Moon may be dependent on what you do regularly and what good or bad habits you’ve managed to create for yourself. Fighting the procrastination and defeating it in the first days of August will help you to be on a great track throughout the rest of the month, and you’ll be ready so you don’t have to get ready. Mercury, your ruler, is in your sign until the 25th, so take advantage of the speed and mental acuity that you’ll have access to while Mercury is at its full power. Once it moves into Libra, you may see your desire for security morph into a desire for freedom. Be open to breaking out of the box and taking some risks.
You might be hiding yourself away from the world right now, but the time to break out of the silence is coming. You might be focused on a project or needing to work on some personal issues, and it might require you to spend time by yourself or with a work partner who can help you to reach your goals. With the Full Moon in Aquarius in your 5th house on the 11th, something that you’re creating can bring change to your life, and the more you work on perfecting it, the bigger the impact on your life can be. Now is the time to make sure that you’ve dotted all your i’s and crossed all your t’s, because you don’t know who may be watching and waiting to offer you an opportunity. Mercury then enters your sign on August 25th, clearing up the confusion that Mercury in the 12th house can bring. You may find that you’re feeling more extroverted after a period of isolation once Mercury moves into Libra, and you might reach out to friends and family who you haven’t talked with in a while. Finding a way to balance your work and your relationships will be the key to your success this month.
A change in your romantic status this month may inspire you to move forward with your passion. Mars conjunct Uranus in your 7th house on August 1st can create new relationships or break down old ones, providing you with opportunities to live out the romantic life you’re looking for. If you’re in the right relationship, odds are you’ll still be making a change, but you’ll likely make it together. The Full Moon in Aquarius on the 11th could usher in a manifestation related to your home or family, an upgrade for your relationship with your family or the flow of your living space. Once the Sun enters Virgo on the 22nd, you may find that you’re more mentally clear and able to organize your life better, in addition to making positive changes when it comes to your health. You may have been putting your health on the back burner due to an abundance of responsibilities, but eventually it will catch up with you if you don’t find time to rest. The Uranus Retrograde in Taurus on the 24th will also likely have a strong effect on you, so look for ways to improve your relationships and prevent them from becoming stagnant. The areas of your life that you nurture this month are the ones that will grow, so pursue what you want more of.
July might have been an adventure, but August is about coming back down to earth for you. The Full Moon in Aquarius is in your 3rd house on the 11th, highlighting your support system and how you communicate and work with a team. Those who struggle to express their needs and say what’s on their mind may have an awakening during this time, and begin to make strides to remedy this issue. Mars enters Gemini and your 7th house on the 20th, encouraging your relationships to pick up some speed and direction if they haven’t been progressing the way you’d hoped. Once this starts, it may be difficult to slow it down, so make sure you’re pursuing a relationship with the right person during this time, and pay attention to your intuition, because it will let you know if you’re not with the person who will help you to grow. The New Moon in Virgo in your 10th house on the 27th can be a turning point for you, allowing you to make a change to your image if you feel you’ve outgrown the person you were in the past, and you may feel more comfortable taking on a role of authority after this time. You don’t have to stay in a box, you can evolve and create a new era for yourself.
Love and money get serious this month, and eureka moments may flow in faster than you were expecting. With Venus moving from your 7th house to your 8th house on the 11th, in addition to the Full Moon in your 2nd house, you may find that any romantic situations that were light take on a more serious tone, and commitment or separation may come, depending on what direction you want to take with the romantic situation you’re a part of. If you’re not in a romantic situation, this could be in reference to money, and you may create a budget that helps you to save more money than you thought you were able to. Foundations can be built during this time, as long as you’re dedicated. Favorable financial gains could come in on the 22nd as well, under the influence of the start of Virgo season and Mercury in Virgo trine Pluto in your home sign of Capricorn. This helps to create transformational actions through ideas and brainstorming, breaking down creative blocks and allowing you to ignore naysayers. The New Moon in Virgo on the 27th rises in your 9th house, providing you with opportunities to plan new studies in addition to travels, so be ready to expand your horizons and your mind. August has a lot to offer you, so make sure you have the room to receive it!
Changes to your home or family may have a domino effect on the rest of your month. Mars conjunct Uranus in Taurus on the 1st of the month can create upsets when it comes to your household, where people may move out, a repair may need to be made, or an argument with a family member may need to be resolved. The faster you’re able to create peace again, the faster you’ll have peace of mind, because it’s unlikely that someone else will do it for you this month. Take responsibility when it comes to making things right, even if it might not be your fault. Risks that you take on August 9th may not pan out the way you were hoping, since Venus in Cancer is opposite Pluto in Capricorn, so you may want to do the more daring things on other more fortunate dates, such as the 25th, when Mercury enters Libra and your 9th house. The Full Moon is rising in your sign on the 11th, and you may become highly aware of ways that you’ve changed over the last year, and you may also become aware of contradictory beliefs that you still hold. Let go of what no longer rings true for you so that you can live your life your way.
Stagnancy may be moving up and out, but what’s coming could take some getting used to. Mars is conjunct Uranus on the 1st of the month in your 3rd house, which can bring changes to your support system as well as to your thought process and your communication with others. There may be a lot that you’re not aware of this month, but with the Full Moon in Aquarius rising in your 12th house of hidden things on August 11th, your eyes may be opened to how your thought process isn’t leading you to the goals that you’ve set for yourself. Don’t feel like the old way that you communicated was bad, just look at it as a stepping stone to finding a better way to express yourself. The New Moon in your 7th house on the 27th could indicate that someone new is coming for you when it comes to romance, or if you’re already in a relationship, your partner may make a change that improves your relationship, but that could also create discord, depending on your response. If your partner decides to make a healthy change, try to be supportive, as it may have taken a lot of courage to try to make this change, and you might even want to join them. Embrace improvement, and it might take you places you never expected.
