Aries – This month, your words flow easily, just as you are being called to lend a sympathetic ear to others. Although this is not the best month for making personal progress in love or money, it is the perfect time to strengthen your credentials as a pillar and support to others in your life. Someone who is opposed to your efforts at work may turn out to be a valuable ally. If you take their suggestions seriously, you will end up refining your position into one of strength.
Taurus – Mars, the Warrior planet, is giving you and your fellow Earth signs a boost. Take advantage of having him on your side to achieve more. However, don’t dismiss the possibility of conflict in the first half of the month, when feedback or criticism can grate on your ear. It will be critical to maintaining a climate of mutual respect. When the energy shifts in the middle of the month, the buy-in and understanding you seek become more readily available.
Gemini – This is a frisson-filled period, where tense interactions can be as energizing as they are stressful. Another person’s competition and challenge may be a test of your ability to keep your cool. A person with whom you have little in common may cause heated debate or even sexual tension. Meanwhile, your interactions with someone who looks up to you may have a greater influence on them than you realize. Set aside time for mentoring.
Cancer – You have an abundance of creativity, and now is the time to express it in your own unique way. Efforts you put in have a good chance of bearing fruit. Others are more likely to agree with your tastes and preferences, at least at the beginning of the month. Social situations can be exciting and unexpectedly enjoyable. If you are open, this could be an exciting portal for magic and new possibilities.
Leo – With the Sun and Mercury in your sign, there are numerous opportunities to meet like-minded people. Your messages are getting through, especially in the first half of the month. Any effort you make to share your knowledge with others will most likely be greatly appreciated. This month, Jupiter’s energy brings levity, optimism, and a tendency toward excess. To avoid the pitfalls of what could be a very fun time, practice moderation.
Virgo – With Mars still in your sign, your personal effectiveness is at an all-time high. Now is the time to concentrate on your goals and objectives, and consider raising the bar to maximize the supportive energies. All work and no play, on the other hand, is not a winning formula. Saying yes to invitations will be rewarding with Venus boosting your sense of social ease. Your communicative abilities will be highlighted in the second half of August.
Libra – At this time, exchanging ideas with others is worthwhile. Your genuine efforts to listen and understand someone may mean more to them than you realize. People you don’t expect to agree with can surprise you. Working with others, on the other hand, will be more difficult because their actions may appear confusing or contradictory to your own. Your social charms peak in the latter half of the month, and your love flows more freely.
Scorpio – It’s about time you took a break after a few hectic weeks. Opportunities for love and money can appear through unexpected channels. There is some risk of misinterpretation when well-intentioned feedback is misinterpreted as criticism. Don’t take it too personally. Messages and emotions will be sorted out by the end of the month.
Sagittarius – As asteroid Juno exits retrograde in your sign, it may be time to reconsider your relationships and commitments. The desire for deeper connection is genuine, and now may be the time to go all-in or move on. The good news is that communication is your best friend, especially in the first half of the month. The energy at work is urging you to pick your battles and avoid exaggerating minor issues.
Capricorn – Your personal effectiveness, like that of Virgo, is at an all-time high in August. You could be really getting into your stride at work or with any projects you’re working on. Take advantage of the Universe’s assistance and strive for more if you feel called to do so. Make time for fun, especially in the first half of the month. You might discover that the tastes and preferences of others perfectly match your own. A harmless flirtation could enter the scene toward the end. Put on a good performance.
Aquarius – What you do for others comes to the fore as opportunities to demonstrate your devotion and attentiveness arise. How you listen, share, and education can be extremely nourishing and beneficial to another person. Getting anything concrete done on your personal agenda is more difficult at this time. Prepare for heated, thought-provoking debates and opposing viewpoints, especially at the start of the month. By the time Venus enters fellow Air sign Libra, having fun can become more of a priority.
Pisces – This can be a trying time due to the procession of planets in the opposing sign of Virgo, which brings confrontations. Others may appear to be opposing your ideas and efforts. Even in less important areas of life, such as what to eat, drink, or buy, you are unlikely to obtain widespread agreement. Your ego is being tested by the Universe. Take it all in stride, and you will emerge as a more confident and secure person.
