The focus is on your personal life and goals in August, dear Aries. While much contentment can be found at home, you’re also more than willing to enjoy leisure activities and to make new plans for keeping organized and efficient on the job, particularly around the 17th. Demands from a friend, or the need of others to lean on you for support, can keep you especially busy in the first week of the month. Events occurring now bring you to the realization that you need to reach out and connect.
August is strong for romance and finances for you, dear Taurus, although impulsiveness is an inclination in both areas. Conversations with others are for the most part healthy and forward-looking. Mid-month, a heart to heart with a lover has a more serious tone, and should be considered carefully. Changeful conditions surrounding your career this month eventually lead to improvement of your position and an increased sense of personal fulfillment, even if it feels a little chaotic for the time being.
In August, the spotlight is on your home and family, dear Gemini, as well as necessary errands, paperwork, and learning. You’ve been quite “me” focused recently, and a restless urge is likely to take hold in the first week of the month. You are reminded of important responsibilities surrounding family and finances mid-August. Until the 25th, Mars in your sign keeps you on your toes, providing you with the energy and gumption to go after what you want from your life. Friends are helpful and seem to have your best interests at heart.
August is a month in which you are hatching plans, resting more than usual, and experiencing less personal energy, dear Cancer. You are instinctively preparing for a more outgoing phase starting in the last week of the month, when energy returns, particularly when it comes to career matters. A struggle over matters of dependence and personal freedom might kick off this new cycle. A friend, family, or group activities inspire you this month, and you feel supported and acknowledged. Pay special attention to what a partner has to say mid-month.
The spotlight is on you, your needs, and how you present yourself to others in August, dear Leo. Your mind is focused on security, finances, and practical matters. Matters of the heart touch you deeply, and could involve some personal sacrifices. The 1-8 might feel chaotic, as relationship epiphanies, challenges, and tests occur. It’s an emotional time, but also a period that leads to important discoveries. A surge of personal magnetism and charm heads your way in the last week of the month, when your ideas and conversational skills are in demand.
August is often a month of endings and some cocooning for you, dear Virgo, as you instinctively need to assess what needs to go and what to carry forward into your upcoming birthday year. However, this year, it’s likely to be more active than usual. Friends are important, career goals and initiatives figure strongly, and your urge to talk, project, and learn is strong. Epiphanies surrounding your work or health are likely from the 1-8, when life could feel quite chaotic, but you make a new plan around the 20th that pulls everything together.
While others are seeking you out this month, dear Libra, you are not especially communicative when it comes to sharing personal matters, until after the 25th. You are thinking things through and keeping your ideas and plans to yourself. Still, your social calendar is busy. It’s a strong period for dreaming up new plans, making presentations, and connecting with others. The 1-10 brings epiphanies and fruitions with a romance, and perhaps some tests and trials.
Life isn’t especially private for you this summer, dear Scorpio, and August is no exception. Home life requires special consideration from the 1-7, and again on the 17-18, even if work seems more of a priority. You’ve been expanding your personal circle and home life is sometimes chaotic. You’re filled with ideas about your goals and the future. With regards to romance, you have a strong desire for something different and perhaps a little exotic. Pay special attention to advice from an older (or more experienced) friend on the 16-18.
You are very busy thinking ahead of yourself in August, dear Sagittarius. Next month is strong for career matters, and this month, you are hatching many plans along those lines. Restlessness experienced from the 14-17 might prompt you to consider making travel plans, or plans to broaden your intellectual horizons—whatever it is, you feel the need to widen your experiences. Your energy reserves receive a nice boost now, and you feel the need to take action. Financial matters require special consideration on the 25-26. Romance is lively yet deeply stirring in August.
Much is going on with partnerships, sharing, shared finances, and work this month, dear Capricorn. August is strong for negotiating and ironing out differences with a special someone in your life. Love matters are both demanding and rewarding, particularly towards the last week of the month. Much of your energy is poured into work, health routines, and reorganizing. Getting these matters into order will help free your mind. Special attention to money, sources of income, and personal possessions is required from the 2-10. Others turn to you for solid advice on the 16-18.
The delicate balance between your needs for independence and your needs for close personal relationships is a big issue for you in August, dear Aquarius. Balancing can sometimes feel like a tug of war, but keeping alert to the heart of the matter will give you perspective and ease the tension. From the 1-8, aligning yourself with the image you have been projecting to others can be a challenge. Consider the possibility that you may have misrepresented yourself if others are misunderstanding you. Sorting out financial matters is easier and more objective this month.
Life might seem a little chaotic in August, dear Pisces, as you feel pulled in many directions. However, if you take extra time for relaxation and reflection, which the cosmos fairly forces you to do from the 1-8, you will find the energy to balance it all. It might seem counterintuitive to take extra time for repose when you’re in demand, but you’ll be far more effective if you do. Getting organized and sorting out mundane affairs is necessary, while expressing your creativity and romantic impulses are strong. A serious conversation with a partner might figure around the 17th.
