Your ruling planet, Saturn will go direct at the beginning of August. This is a great time to strip yourself of anything that is not your authentic self and find the origin of who you really are and let that freak flag fly. Breakdowns and breakthroughs will be no stranger to your sign this month. Set your frequency to the right channel and be prepared to receive the messages you’ve been waiting to hear. The moon moves into Capricorn on August 25th, so take extra care of your knees during the following few days.
Aquarius 1/20 – 2/18
You are ascending through the cosmos to heights only your imagination can take you. The beginning of August marks a time in your life where you can see significant alterations to your relationships—for the better. This may be romantic, casual, or business-like. Make sure to take a break and go outside at night during August 12th through 13th so you can see the Perseids meteor shower. Like a mullet, take care of business during the front half of the month so you can party during the back half.
Pisces 2/19 – 3/20
Since you are ruled by the feet, the whole month will turn you upside down and start at your head. It’s important to be mentally prepared for the events that come dancing into August. Go find a nice place outside away from the daily grind to watch the Perseids meteor shower on August 12th through 13th. Once August 29th hits, the moon will end its rotation through the other signs, and end with yours truly. This is a super full moon in Pisces and it will amplify your sign ten-fold. It’s important to put everything out into the universe that you wish to be returned to you.
Aries 3/21 – 4/19
August is all about becoming your authentic self and taking risks. If you are not seeing any rewards then it’s likely that you are not wagering on any prospects. Set aside your reactions and just take action. Once you take the reigns of your life into the direction you choose, put the food of life in your mouth and watch your jaw as it chews. You are ruled by the head and the face so it is important to take care of these key areas during August 3rd and 4th.
Taurus 4/20 – 5/20
You are ruled by Venus and this planet will be retrograde until the beginning of September. It’s important to reevaluate the things that are most dear to you during this period, Taurus. Some things in your life may fall apart this month only to regain them back stronger than ever—once the loving planet goes direct. You may then see the world in a new light, have more insight and creative realizations. If you need to, take a break and allow yourself a much needed period for rest and insight.
Gemini 5/21 – 6/21
You may be feeling less than enthusiastic this month and this may be due to Venus being retrograde the entire span of August. The good times are coming again, so if and when opportunities strike, it’s important to jump. The energy of August will shed light on the darkness that may have consumed you in the past. This illumination will cause you to literally see things in a different light. If you are not satisfied with something in your life, then change is necessary.
Cancer 6/22 – 7/22
Looking at your chart, there are nothing but good things coming your way. This month it’s all about you. Windfalls and successes will be no stranger to you in August. It’s important to find your truth and to roll with it. As Herman Melville once said, “It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.” Don’t be afraid of what you don’t know and if you balance the risk you need to take with a much needed reward, then do it. The super moon on August 29th is in your sister sign, Pisces, so expect lots of insight.
Leo 7/23 – 8/22
The sun is in your sign so it’s your time to soak up the limelight—let the world hear you roar. There are a few magical days for you this month, so make sure to jot these down. August 4th marks an important day for you due to Jupiter and Venus hooking up. The jovial giant and the voluminous lover are a match made in celestial heaven. The new moon on August 14th is in Leo. This is the best time in the course of the year to sow your seeds and watch them grow. Invest in yourself.
Virgo 8/23 – 9/22
The good energy from last month is going to saturate August as well. The biggest planet in our solar system, Jupiter, will remain in Virgo until 2016. As Jupiter moves into your sign, it’s also a great time to go outside and enjoy the Perseids meteor shower. Peak days are August 12th and 13th. You are truly blessed and this month will reward you in ways you never dreamed possible. On August 23rd the Sun moves into your sign so this is a wonderful day to treat yourself and others.
Libra 9/23 – 10/22
On August 14th it is very important to get some perspective and to look at your life from an objective point of view. Once you have established your desires it’s important to put them out into the universe so they can come back to you. The moon is in your sign on August 17th through the 19th so this is a great time to focus on yourself and treat yourself to a new outfit. The new you is sure to attract exactly what you need at exactly the right time.
Scorpio 10/23 – 11/21
Saturn has been causing you quite a bit of stress lately, right? Well, the next 6 weeks will mark a time of death and rebirth. The death of old ways and old habits, are going on siesta for twenty nine years. This month you will have a lot of choices to make, especially regarding your career. Do what is best for you and look at the possibilities as well as long-term outlook rather than short-term emotional fulfillment. When you say, “bye bye” to things, you’re going to be saying, “hello” to others. Embrace this chaotic time with a well deserved breath of fresh air.
Sagittarius 11/22 – 12/21
Your reputation far exceeds what you think it does. Your actions determine if this is good or bad. Investors are looking at you, do you have the right angle and pitch? It’s important that you look at the foundation you are resting on and making sure that the holes are sealed on your boat before you set your eyes on the water ahead and deem it, “unsinkable.” If you don’t risk your ship in the sea, then why do you have one? If your vision is for a voyage far away, communications are going to be the wind for your sails and it plays a vital role in your career.
