August looks like a mixed-bag for most of us, with many of us consolidating progress and on ideas made in June and July. For some, it’s still cosmic exam time, while for others it’s time to break glass-ceilings in both business and love.
*only for entertainment purposes.
Like good cheese, you’re maturing well, Leo.
August starts off on a beautiful note with a hope or dream within reach or being realised. This may be the time when you find new routes to cherished dreams or people. Your optimism will be high and your spirituality strong, especially when you are interacting with nature. The term ‘clear skies’ come to mind, allowing you to see further with understanding.
Your optimism matures into a greater commitment on an emotional or spiritual level come mid-month. Emotional reconciliation or renewed determination to stick to a person or plan finds you considering new never-before-thought-of paths. While this may seem scary, you’re a pioneer at heart (or with heart) so explore till your heart’s content.
August ends on a stable, less confusing note for you. While plans and ideas move or grow more slowly than you’d like, you’ll feel more grounded and content with your broad future plans/vision, a greater connection to your life-purpose and even a greater connection to your ancestors or a suppressed part of yourself.
The month begins on a strait-laced note on the surface but has a definitely more fun-feeling under the surface.
Libras are significant in your life at the start of the month, bringing some insight with a touch of humour. While others may think of you as somewhat unforgiving over some aspects just now, your playfulness and compassion will pop-up at the most unexpected times. Expect puppy dogs and little kids to either cry at the sight of you or run after you in delight! Through it all, you’ll have clarity come to you at the oddest moments.
Mid-August may see you labelled as a lone-wolf at work or in other communities. Recognition may be hard to find or denied you by some. Ignore them and continue the good-work, unless you decide to go your own way. The abundance or monetary rewards you seek may be a little late in coming, so plan accordingly.
The month ends on a similar note for you as Leo. Long-term plans with most Leo’s would therefore work out well as you’ll be on the same page with the same concerns and understanding of each other’s problem-solving. Investment in mining may work out well for you, especially if you have the longer-terms in sight, a connection to the land being utilised, and a concern for the environmental impact and rehabilitation. Planting and reforestation will also make you happy and bring you internal peace. It’s all go with green, Virgo.
Choose paths wisely at the beginning at the month or lighten your social calendar to ease the strain on yourself.
August begins on a decisive note for you. You’re done being…vacillating. You’re done missing opportunities. And it is a great time for you to say ‘yes’ to the new more often—but in moderation, Libra. Choose one path and stick with it—at least for now:-D
More decisions come around mid-month, but at least this time, they’re more clear-cut, perhaps involving money or a business partnership. You may want to call on Virgo and ask for a play-date as their unexpected humour will bring out your own sense of humour and playfulness.
A busy, busy, end of month for you, perhaps even stressful. Too many ideas, too little optimism and maybe a little bit of paralysis caused by inaction/self-doubt. Or perhaps a series of late nights. You’ll be needing extra sleep for sure.
Be wise and energise, Scorpio.
It’s a fertile period for you at the beginning of the month. Ideas, creations, and the means to ground them into reality are all yours for the asking and taking. Be kind (especially to Virgos who are your good-luck charms this month) and allow your warmth and generosity to surface once more. Friendships will grow stronger in this way.
Mid-August could bring some brushes with legal-eagles. Contracts will be fair (especially if you have your own eagle-eyes) and you’ll be beholden to promises just as much as your co-signatures. For those in love or considering marriage, be aware of the karmic forces at play and decide now if you’re in it for the long-haul, because this flight looks like a non-stop.
August ends on a lovely social and happy note for you. Whatever your mood, the fun and playful side of life is sure to keep tapping you on the shoulder like a game of tag. For those in New Zealand or visiting, a cultural show or art exhibition will inspire you and prove more life-enhancing than anticipated. Watch your alcohol intake and remember that the best kind of fun leaves you feeling better for days after, not worse.
Fly high, Sagittarius. It’s time to feel alive again!
August begins on a hectic note for you. Delayed from June, you’ll be flooded by news, messages, loads of emails… Why not run off to the wilds for a day or two and let your soul build better filters for modern living. But don’t forget the bug-spray. Otherwise, it’s a passionate time for you, with maybe a holiday romance or a business deal/career move at a new location.
Mid-month finds you feeling vulnerable. Perhaps that romance is turning serious or you’d forgotten that bug-spray and are now paying the price or medical fee. Either way, you may feel off-balance or dizzy at the speed at which your life changed. Take heart and be easy on yourself. Adjustments take time. And every new experience or undertaking has a learning-curve.
You’re taking flight, most probably physically. If not, your ideas are doing it for you. Freedom comes with a price this time, and you may wonder if it’s perhaps too much. But stretching your wings is good for you, and it maybe that this is just what you need to get out of your mental and physical comfort-zone (unless you have a serious medical condition). When last did you feel so alive, Sagittarius? When last? Stretch those wings and go with the winds of change.
New spiritual seeking for you, and a small change at home.
August begins on a spiritual note for you. You may feel that there’s ‘more to life than this’ and start seeking new spiritual pathways or expressions of self. This may bring up some latent talents or gifts which may be of benefit to others around you.
Mid-month may bring what feels like a sulkiness when it looks like re-organisation of your home or other home-related plans may fall through or be delayed. Your spiritual/emotional quest may also be put on hold as you deal with more mundane issues and family needs. Some love relationships may feel a little stale and you may want to take a short vacation with your loved-one.
The month comes to an end with a busy, busy feel. Perhaps you’ve got the green-light on your home-related idea or plans and it’s all systems go. Try not to DIY all of it as it may be a too taxing on your time. Make time to play and relax in a natural beauty spot. It’s just the recharge you need! This is when your greatest insights will come to you. Take note!
August may echo an earlier part of the year. Consider this a cosmic test and don’t make the same mistakes twice!
The month begins with some hidden agendas. It may be yours, it may be others. But caution is advised, as is honesty—especially with yourself! It may be all too easy to convince yourself you’re ready for a new experience or job, and that you have all the resources you need to win through any situation. Others may call you out when you least expect it. For this part of the month, stick to what you know and what you’ve mastered.
Mid-August brings a short-term tightening of the budget. Part-time work or beginning your own business may also prove very challenging with the Mercury Retrograde affecting us for most the month. Do your research and your sums (this is not the time to let your money take care of itself) and make sensible plans. Work, or what feels like work, may make playtime and me-time scarce. Schedule a pj-day or two and feel better for it.
The month ends on an emotional note. You may feel far from your family and friends, or perhaps you’re finding it difficult to make trust-worthy new relationships. Your beloved may also be travelling or so busy that you hardly see them. Try painting or another artistic expression to lift your spirits and meet the kind of souls who speak to you just now.
Weed out the worry and plant seeds of hope into your future.
August begins on a good stable note for you, allowing you to finally make some long-term plans. Explore your child-like creativity to find more opportunities in work and in relationships.
Mid-August may bring a stern, difficult air-sign into your sphere. You may not share the same sense of humour, and it may be very easy to misunderstand each other. Take the time to clarify your messages, double-check for errors and ensure you’re following the correct formats/procedures.
Late August brings a stuck-in-school feeling where you want nothing more than to go out and play, but work or studies prove too demanding. Celebrations may be put on hold as your workload grows heavy. Keep your focus, stay grounded and you’ll get through this all that quicker. Distractions, welcome though they may be, will only delay that overdue fun-time.
Ooh, Aries! It’s a wonderfully good month for you in terms of love and partnerships.
The month begins with you a little preoccupied on future plans, but firmly in control. It’s a month for trying out new work systems and ensuring that structures in your life are firm and trust-worthy. You’ll be in demand for your skills, or recognised for your achievements. Just the kind of thing you love 😀
Mid-August brings in the lovey-dovey stuff or a wonderful new partnership in another area of your life, along with a whole lot of joy and reciprocal feeling. Either way, it looks like the start of a beautiful friendship. One or two of you may finally make a life-changing choice, so resolving a long-standing conflict in your life. Whatever your situation, go with the flow.
August ends on an uplifting note. Matters which seemed stranded, will float once more, and forward movement to calmer waters will be the result. You know what you want. You know what you need. Now watch as it all comes to you 😀
August brings new beginnings in creativity, or new ways of communicating. Maybe even both!
The month begins with you in an upbeat mood which allows others to see your playful side. New opportunities will result, and you may be asked to solve some issues in an ingenious way. Don’t panic! Play with the problem and it will magically reveal its secrets to you.
Mid-month finds your social calendar full as everyone demands your amazing presence. Outdoor events will be your favourites, which may bring some new romance for those nights under the stars. Or perhaps, you’ll be meeting stars. Or even seeing stars (hopefully not for all the wrong reasons!). Whatever your starry-eyed situation, remember not to overlook the obvious, and don’t overspend.
August ends on a lower note as you realise where your fair-weather friends disappeared to, or find yourself out of pocket because of some overspending. Try not to pour energy into a situation out of sheer optimism. Ensure that you have some basis in fact to continue your involvement with certain people or contracts. Save your optimism for those projects and people closest to your heart, including some overlooked charities.
Life begins again, Sleeping Beauty.
August begins with you in wonderful spirits as you catalogue all that you are grateful for—and there’s so many new wonderful developments to grow your list for the first nine days! Lucky, lucky gem that you are—everyone may now begin seeing you in the light that you wish to be seen—roughened edges or not!
Mid-month brings some much needed fun mental stimulation, perhaps in the form of a long-overdue trip. Whatever way you’re going, it’s a path unique to you which few others can follow you down. Time to revel in your mind, your ideas, and your clear way of looking at the world.
The month ends on with a jarring need to ground those earlier ideas. This may slow the pace you’ve set yourself, but it’s sorely needed to consolidate all that you’re building and to secure your achievements and those dreams which began coming true earlier in the month. Don’t lose yourself this time, bring things down to earth and stick to tangibles at month-end.
As the month grows, so do you.
August begins with you having an itch to act or for movement, or just to do something…different! The cards say wait. Find your balance. Hold the ‘steady’ position for a tad longer so you don’t misstep on the ‘go’.
Mid-August sees you in a powerful position, self-confident and full of ideas. Others will consult with you, and the sky will be the limit in terms of your creativity and ability to influence others. Use this power wisely and to help benefit others too. And if you’re trying to catch someone special’s eye, they’ll be spellbound by you without you even trying!
August ends with you consolidating your position and setting up new systems or structures to allow for more stability and sustainability in your life. Recognition comes on all fronts. And if that special someone hasn’t approached you yet, they will now!
