Leo (July 23 — Aug. 22)

Leo, you’ll be given so much attention this month dating-wise and birthday-wise. August 14, the Sun and Venus will unite to shower more happiness and good memories onto you. Around August 15, a Full Moon will appear in your love and relationships sector, fulfilling your goals when it comes to the matters of the heart. Up until August 18, it’s all about love, inner joy and happiness. As Leo season wraps up, you will be receiving countless financial opportunities that will transition into September!

 

Virgo (Aug. 23 — Sept. 22)

Virgo, where have you been? You went MIA during the first half of August; you’ve been impossible to reach. However, this was all part of your plan. With careful analysis, you made the decision to stay away and be on your own. You have possibly been maximizing an opportunity related to home, but it doesn’t seem to give you the positive results you hoped for. Around August 18, however, all of this will change. Mars will finally be apparent in your sign, giving you more chances to focus on your career, relationships and emotions again. A new moon will appear on August 30, symbolizing a new chapter of your life. 

 

Libra (Sept. 23 — Oct. 22)

Libra, the first half of this month will consist of the sun, Venus and Mars in your 11th House of Groups and Networking, which means you’ll easily be a social butterfly. This is something that is out of your comfort zone. Around August 18, however, Mars will move over to the 12th House of Escape for the next three months. This will allow you to calm down and spend some time alone after being overly social these past few months.  

 

Scorpio (Oct. 23 — Nov. 21)

Scorpio, this August is all about enhancing communication with others. You will be building your social skills to a comfortable extent. During the first half of August, you will predominantly focus on the money sector of your life. From August 8 onwards, you will succeed in one of your minor career goals that will open up the income sector for you. You continue to thrive this month financially and professionally. As for love and relationships, the chaos and messiness that’s been bothering you will subside and allow you to think carefully about the next steps you should take. 

 

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 — Dec. 21) 

Personal growth has been the key focus in your life recently, since Jupiter has been slowly moving through the common Sagittarius. However, because Jupiter is going through retrograde, your major goals and ideas have been either stopped or slowed down. Thankfully, Jupiter will stop meandering around August 11, marking a clearer direction ahead. All the goals, ideas and emotions you have been wanting to express will be put into effect now. There will be no major obstacle tackling you down for the next four months or so. This is good news for your love life as well, since Jupiter will allow Venus to take over from August 8 onwards.

 

Capricorn (Dec. 22 — Jan. 19)

Around August 11, Jupiter ends its retrograde in calculated Sagittarius as Mercury enters passionate Leo. Changes in your love life will take place during that week — but don’t worry, they’re not necessarily negative changes! However, after such major changes, you will need some time to readjust your routine. On the other hand, a full moon lightens up the second half of the month. From August 15 onwards, there will be healthy fortune and wealth acquired because of your hard work and good attitude. You’re spending time with the right people, which is another reason why the fortune factor opens up. With financial satisfaction and growth along with communicative relationships, this month will wrap up on a positive note.

 

Aquarius (Jan. 20 — Feb. 18)

The union of Sun and Venus from August 14 onwards will make August all about love for you. The first half of August will allow you to spend a major amount of time and energy on love, insecurity and passion. You will settle your thoughts and step out of your comfort zone to understand what you deserve. In the second half of the month, you will be taking care of or helping out with family finances. If you give them attention and care, you or your family may acquire some financial benefits towards the end of the month. 

 

Pisces (Feb. 19 — March 20)

This is the month when you realize you love your job and have a clearer vision of where you see yourself professionally in the coming years. The union of Sun and Venus on August 14 will bring in joy from career advancement. You will be getting healthier both mentally and physically by pursuing your goals and applying lessons learned from others around you. With productive passion and self-awareness, you will prosper and grow this month. 

 

Aries (March 21 — April 19)

Aries, love is in the air. You’re going to finally spend more time with the person you love. If you’re single, that might change soon. Venus, Mars and the Sun line up in your 5th House of Romance until August 18. These few weeks will be the prime time, before everything cools down and the honeymoon phase fades away. From August 18 onwards, Mars will be moving back into the professional sector of your life. When you work, you tend to give it your all. But this month, you’ll be a ball of energy and ideas, making it a very successful month professionally and romantically for you. 

 

Taurus (April 20 — May 20) 

Get your suit and tie or blouse and dress pants ready because it’s about time for you to be career-centric! August is all about professional growth for the average Taurus. But your job won’t be so average, because you’ll be applying healthy changes in your work style and lifestyle this month. In the matters of the heart, Mars will be entering the romance sector on August 18 onwards … which means you’ll finally meet your cosmic lover. 

 

Gemini (May 21 — June 20)

Gemini, your mind is everywhere. Allow yourself to take it slow. You do not have to focus on too many aspects of your life all at once. Your family and friendship affairs will stay sturdy even with less attention given to them this month. Give yourself a break and try to explore by yourself. From August 18 onwards, there will be a great, positive change in your house. Jupiter will be facing your relationship sector from August 11 onwards; look out for a healthy and progressive union either in love or friendship!

 

Cancer (June 21 — July 22)

This month is all about adding more effort, time and patience to your workload. You will be intensifying your commitments by giving more, rather than receiving more. Starting August 14, the Sun and Venus will allow you to embrace your passions more fervently. The more you get creative this month, the more money you will make.
