YOUR HOROSCOPE FOR AUGUST 2013

 

Aries

March 21 - April 20

As August begins, your creativity is highlighted by the Sun in Leo positioned in your 5th house.  The next few weeks are your time to shine.  Even if the arts aren’t your usual thing, it’s likely you’ll feel inspired and you could realize that you need some sort of creative expression in your life.  Romance will be accented and it could be a time to fall in love or rekindle the passion in your relationships.

The New Moon on August 6th can help you to renew your sense of fun and wonderment for the world.  If you’ve been all work and no play lately, then this New Moon can help you give yourself a much-needed break.  It’s a fantastic time to plan a vacation, join a creative group and return to activities you enjoyed as a child.  Maybe it’s time for a bicycle ride, walking barefoot in the grass or dancing in your living room!  By allowing time for creative self-expression and play, you can refresh your spirit and share joyful moments with loved ones.

On August 16th, Venus enters the sign of Libra and your 7th house of relationships.  It’s possible you’ve been focusing on many of the practical details in your relationships lately.  Whether you’re working on romantic, friendship or business relations (or all of the above), now will be a time to see more of the big picture.  Venus in Libra can allow you to achieve a more balanced perspective and be more willing to compromise.  This next month partnerships and teamwork will become important and you’ll have a good opportunity to learn some valuable people skills.

The Full Moon, in Aquarius, August 20th puts a spotlight on your friendships.  While Venus in your 7th house emphasizes one-on-one relationships, this Full Moon will help you to appreciate groups and your diverse set of friends.  It can be a great time to host a party and bring together people you know from different circles.  You may be surprised at the common threads that people from vastly different backgrounds can share!  Consider joining a club or befriending others from a different culture.

Jupiter will be making a shift this month that can expand people’s sense of compassion while simultaneously challenging them to get out of their comfort zone.  Last month I mentioned the Grand Trine between Jupiter, Neptune and Saturn that is helping everyone make more of an emotional commitment to their dreams and manifest some big opportunities.  Between August 7th and 21st, Jupiter moves into a position that opposes Pluto and squares Uranus and the result will remind us all that the greatest gifts come with challenges attached.

This Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto interaction will focus on your sense of personal freedom and how it relates to your career and home life.  You may be experiencing feelings that you’d like to restructure your responsibilities at work or home in order to experience more independence.  It’s possible you’ve been attempting a gradual transformation, much like easing your way into a cold pool. This month, something or someone may just push you all the way in.  It could feel like a shock, but realize this could be the help you need to take make the changes you need.

When the Sun moves into Virgo and your 6th house on August 22nd, a sense of stability will likely be present and you’ll have a chance to get both feet on the ground and see where you’ve landed.  The remainder of the month you’ll be able to gain empowerment by getting into some healthy routines, getting organized and taking charge of your self-care.


Taurus

April 21 - May 21

The Sun in Leo will light up your 4th house of home and family for most of the month.  You could feel inspired take charge of situations when you’re with family and your leadership traits may come in handy at home.  If you normally take a passive role in family decisions, you might find yourself being more assertive.  It’s a great time to connect with your own children if you have them, or with other children in your family.  It will be a great month for celebrations with your loved ones such as family parties or reunions.

On August 6th, the New Moon in Leo will add to the energy around your home life.  It’s an opportune time for new beginnings, and if you are thinking of starting a family, this Moon cycle is supportive of your ambitions.  Other ways to work with this New Moon include setting goals to add more fun to your home life, reconnect with your inner child and/or work on creative home improvement projects.

Venus will enter the sign of Libra and your 6th house of daily work, health and wellness on August 16th.  This can help you to find more balance in your work life in order to create time in your schedule for healthful routines.  It’s likely you’ll feel inspired to take better care of yourself and as a result, you will have a healthy glow that causes others to find you more attractive.  This month you may feel that the easiest way to express your love for another is through willingness to compromise and thoughtful, small gestures.

On August 20th, the Full Moon in Aquarius will shine a light on your career and/or public life.  The innovative energy of Aquarius is a great way to break out of stale patterns that might be holding you back from achieving a position of power.  Your leadership skills may be brought to light through a passion to champion for the underdog.  Realizations now can feel like a bolt of lightning and you may have the sudden ability to command the attention of others.  It’s possible that an unconventional career path will call to you.  

Jupiter will be making a shift this month that can expand people’s sense of compassion while simultaneously challenging them to get out of their comfort zone.  Last month I mentioned the Grand Trine between Jupiter, Neptune and Saturn that is helping everyone make more of an emotional commitment to their dreams and manifest some big opportunities.  Between August 7th and 21st, Jupiter moves into a position that opposes Pluto and squares Uranus and the result will remind us all that the greatest gifts come with challenges attached.

This Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto interaction will be helpful for you to figure out how to honour yourself while navigating your relationships with others.  In particular, you may be challenged to overcome fears about expressing your spiritual beliefs.  An opportunity could arise for you to declare your opinions without knowing if those around you will share your views.  Trust that you will be able to be true to yourself in a way that respects those around you and take this chance to deepen your relationships!  

The end of the month will be excellent for creative endeavours after the Sun moves into Virgo and your 5th house on August 22nd.  This position gives you the discipline and focus needed to actualize an idea.  If you have unfinished art projects, this will be a great time to refine them and add in important details.  It may also be a time when you are recognized for your artistic skills and/or ability to help others.


Gemini

May 21 - June 21

Communications will be highlighted for most of August thanks to the Leo Sun illuminating your 3rd house.  Gemini’s are naturally good communicators, but with this Sun position, you may receive a lot of extra attention for your gift of expression.  It will be a fantastic time to give presentations and dazzle people with your charm and powers of persuasion.  Take advantage of the available energy to support you in crafting written or verbal communications to improve your status personally and professionally.

The August 6th Leo New Moon can promote any objectives that involve learning, communications and getting caught up on the details of life.  It’s a great time for list making and prioritizing.  If you’ve been interested in taking a class, it’s a favourable time to enrol.  Not only will you feel motivated to reach out to others, but you’ll also have a lot of fun and creative ideas for ways to connect!  You’ll be especially skilled at party planning, organizing a fun outing or coordinating with others on a creative project.

Speaking of creative projects, Venus enters Libra and your 5th house of creativity on August 16th.  You could feel as if you’ve found your muse and feel compelled to paint, draw, dance or make music.  It’s likely that you want to create with at least one other person and enjoy sharing the artistic process.  You may feel particularly romantic and want to go on dates that allow you to fill your senses with beautiful music and art.  If single, you could meet someone special at a theatre, museum or art gallery.

The Full Moon, in Aquarius, on August 20th will accent travel and adventure.  You might get a “wild hair” to book a trip overseas or embark on a new path in your life.  At first your impulses may seem out of the blue, however, this Full Moon is just shedding light on an urge for freedom that you’ve been feeling for some time.  This time period can feel like a wakeup call to liberate you from worrying about what other people will think.  If you’ve been living in a way that compromises your values, you may realize that a big change is just what you need.

Jupiter will be making a shift this month that can expand people’s sense of compassion while simultaneously challenging them to get out of their comfort zone.  Last month I mentioned the Grand Trine between Jupiter, Neptune and Saturn that is helping everyone make more of an emotional commitment to their dreams and manifest some big opportunities.  Between August 7th and 21st, Jupiter moves into a position that opposes Pluto and squares Uranus and the result will remind us all that the greatest gifts come with challenges attached.

This Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto interaction can allow you to make wise choices around some of the opportunities you may have coming regarding work and public recognition.  The planets have been in alignment to help you achieve an elevated social, financial and/or professional status. 

However, if you are deriving your security solely from your material wealth, this configuration of Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto is going to help you to face your fear of not having “enough.”  Be open to new people and unconventional ideas.  Your path to success will involve trust in others as well as a willingness to work from the ground up.

On August 22nd, the Sun moves into Virgo and your 4th house of home and family.  It can be a great time to organize your home and clean out some clutter!  You may also be doing some “emotional housecleaning” by taking time to analyse your relationship with those closest to you.  You could gain a new understanding of those you consider family, whether they are blood relations or not.  The trick will be resisting the urge to be overly critical, even when you recognize flaws in yourself and others.

 

Cancer

June 21 - July 23

Finances will be a focus this month as the Leo Sun sheds light on your 2nd house of resources.  This can mean that you’ll be financially rewarded for work that you take pride in.  If you come into extra money this month, you’re likely to be generous with those in need, especially if children are involved. Take care not to overspend during this time period, as it can be easy to get carried away by your good nature.  And if money is tighter than you’d like it to be, resist any urges to spend for the sake of keeping up appearances. 

The August 6th Leo New Moon will be very helpful to manifest financial and material resources into your life.  If you have creative money making ideas, now is the time to set a plan of action.  You’ll be supported in new endeavours that capitalize on your talents, especially if they involve the arts.  Goals that involve nurturing children and helping those less fortunate will be promoted.  In addition, you can set intentions to value yourself worth and summon the courage to aim for your heart’s desire.

Family interactions can take on a harmonious tone when Venus enters Libra and your 4th house August 16th.  For the next month, it will likely feel easier to negotiate and compromise with those closest to you.  A desire to make your home your sanctuary can result in redecorating and home beautification projects. 

Mutual appreciation and sharing will be strong themes and you may more readily see the good in others.  However, take care not to get overly idealistic and gloss over any issues that need to be addressed.  You can trust that even if there is a difficult situation in your home life that Venus will assist you to take the most fair and diplomatic approach.

The Aquarius Full Moon on August 20th helps you to understand more about exchanging resources with others.  It could become more apparent now what you have to offer in the way of material and energetic wealth.  Creative solutions to settling debts can come to you now and it’s a good time to share your ideas with others.  This Full Moon is encouraging you to recognize and celebrate what you think are your quirkiest traits.  Self-reflection can help you realize the value in everything that makes you different from others.

Jupiter will be making a shift this month that can expand people’s sense of compassion while simultaneously challenging them to get out of their comfort zone.  Last month I mentioned the Grand Trine between Jupiter, Neptune and Saturn that is helping everyone make more of an emotional commitment to their dreams and manifest some big opportunities.  Between August 7th and 21st, Jupiter moves into a position that opposes Pluto and squares Uranus and the result will remind us all that the greatest gifts come with challenges attached.

This Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto interaction is particularly helpful for you, Cancer, because Jupiter is in your first house of self.  This brings an almost magical touch to anything that you do, however, you could be inclined to use your mojo within the confines of a “safe” place.  Uranus and Pluto will come in now to be sure that the talents you have are maximized and that means taking risks.  It could feel as if you’re having the covers ripped off and you’ve become suddenly “exposed.” 

Perhaps someone or something will set the wheels in motion to put you in the spotlight where you can be recognized for something you deeply desire, but are terrified to do.  This is especially true for creative and artistic pursuits, but it could also apply to working with or having children.

On August 22nd, the Sun moves into Virgo and your 3rd house of communications which can be especially good for writing and editing.  The next few weeks, heading into September, will offer an opportunity to feel more grounded after a month that has likely had its’ share of shake ups.  Look for ways you can clear up misunderstandings and communicate with more authenticity and integrity.  Enjoy living in the moment and relishing in life’s small joys.

 


Leo

July 23 - August 23

You’re in the spotlight this month with the Sun in your birth sign lighting up your 1st house of self.  Leos can tend to attract attention any time of the year, but now you are especially magnetic and charming to others.  Enjoy being celebrated for your creativity, unique sense of style, playfulness, imagination and ability to help other people have fun!  It’s a great time to look into that giant heart of yours and determine if you are allowing yourself to fulfil everything it longs for.

If you discover that you you’ve been neglecting some of your personal goals, the August 6th Leo New Moon could be just what you need.  This New Moon’s energy is helpful for setting intentions around changing your image or attitude as well as pursuing meaningful goals. 

You’ll be most supported in anything that you decide to do on your own without outside influence.  It’s not to say you should be totally selfish.  However, you’ll have the most success when your motivation comes purely from within.  Goals involving creative expression are especially well suited for the power of this New Moon.

When Venus enters Libra and your 3rd house of communications on August 16th, your skills of diplomacy will get a boost.  For the rest of the month into early September, you’ll have the ability to handle interpersonal situations with ease and grace.  You may become the “go to” person for friends and colleagues looking for an objective opinion.  While you’ll be enjoying your socially skilled superstardom, there could be times where others may not be receptive to what you have to say.  Take care not to tell people what they want to hear simply because you want a positive reaction from them.

The Full Moon, in Aquarius, on August 20th can add a jolt of energy to your partnerships.  If single, it can be a time when you become attracted to someone very different than yourself.  For those already in a relationship, the focus will be on breaking out of routines and having new experiences together.  Intellect and innovation will be way sexier than traditional hearts and flowers.  If you’ve been having difficulties within a partnership, this can be a time where your skills of creative problem solving can save the day.

Jupiter will be making a shift this month that can expand people’s sense of compassion while simultaneously challenging them to get out of their comfort zone.  Last month I mentioned the Grand Trine between Jupiter, Neptune and Saturn that is helping everyone make more of an emotional commitment to their dreams and manifest some big opportunities.  Between August 7th and 21st, Jupiter moves into a position that opposes Pluto and squares Uranus and the result will remind us all that the greatest gifts come with challenges attached.

This Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto interaction can have an effect on your outlook towards home and family.  It’s likely this past month you’ve already been thinking about how you define family and possibly questioned some of your traditional belief systems.  Now Uranus and Pluto add their energy to make sure you don’t compromise your principals for the sake of not rocking the boat with those who are closest to you. 

During this time period, you’ll be asked to open your mind and acknowledge what you see there.  It could be that you have unconventional ideas about health and wellness that could be challenging to your family members.  Or, you may simply need to live your day-to-day life in a way that conflicts with tradition.  While this could cause conflict, it can be helpful to keep in mind that changes instigated now are intended to liberate you and expand your ability to love and experience life.

You’ll end out the month with a great opportunity to organize your finances when the Sun moves into Virgo and your 2nd house on August 22nd.  This can give you the patience you need to make a detailed budget, integrate new bookkeeping systems and keep better track of your spending. 

The practical energy prevalent for the next month can help you to prioritize what is truly worth spending money on and determine which things you can do without.  When it comes to your values and self-care, you’re apt to be crystal clear on what you want and need.  This will help you to establish some good habits and set a positive example for others.


Virgo

August 23 - September 23

You may be feeling introspective as August begins.  The Sun in Leo will be in your 12th house of spirituality which can feel comfortable for Virgos who like to make things happen behind the scenes.  This Sun position can fill your inner world with a creative light that inspires you to express your divinity and strengthen your connection with a higher power.  As a result, you may become lit up with a new found inner joy that quietly radiates and becomes a positive influence on others.  People likely won’t even realize that you are the one who has affected them and that’s probably just how you like it.

The New Moon, in Leo, on August 6th can help you to focus some of your new found spiritual energy.  It’s an excellent time to get specific about how you’d like to spend time nurturing your physical and mental being.  You’ll likely to have a lot of creative ideas, but it’s possible they will involve solitary activities.  Drawing, painting, music and dance can bring you closer to your higher power now.  By setting intentions towards inner peace you can cultivate some renewing habits that will help you rest up for next month’s Virgo New Moon.

When Venus enters Libra and your 2nd house of finances on August 16th, you can make some positive changes to how you manage your resources.  Venus, ruler of money and material wealth, is well-balanced in the sign of Libra.  This can help you make wise decisions when it comes to money and choosing tasteful purchases. 

However, you could be more susceptible to entering into financial agreements that aren’t in your best interest simply because you don’t want to make waves.  Even though it might feel like bad manners to ask questions about money, don’t be afraid to be direct and get all the information you need.

The August 20th Aquarius Full Moon offers a great opportunity to mix up any boring routines in the areas of daily work, health and wellness.  The theme this Full Moon will be on taking risks and finding new ways to achieve your goals.  If you hear about a new type of exercise that sounds like something you’d never do, then try it!  The same goes for new recipes or time management strategies.  By being inventive with how you structure your time and energy, you can garner more results than you ever thought possible.

Jupiter will be making a shift this month that can expand people’s sense of compassion while simultaneously challenging them to get out of their comfort zone.  Last month I mentioned the Grand Trine between Jupiter, Neptune and Saturn that is helping everyone make more of an emotional commitment to their dreams and manifest some big opportunities.  Between August 7th and 21st, Jupiter moves into a position that opposes Pluto and squares Uranus and the result will remind us all that the greatest gifts come with challenges attached.

This Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto interaction can have an effect on your friendships and the role you take within groups.  With Jupiter in your 11th house now, it’s likely you’ve made some fortunate connections.  But before you get too cosy, Uranus and Pluto add their energy to make sure you don’t rely too much on others to take creative and emotional risks. 

In one sense, the Grand Trine set the stage to help you have success working with others.   Yet, it can be easy to stay inside your comfort zone, especially if there aren’t other people or circumstances challenging you.  That can change quickly these next few weeks.  Be prepared to discover some shocking truths about yourself and then find a way to express that creatively.  Comfortable? Not necessarily.  Deeply rewarding? Most definitely!

This quick infusion of Uranian and Plutonian energy is really the perfect set up for the Sun moving into Virgo and your 1st house on August 22nd.  After this date, you’ll be ready to spend the next month being acknowledged for the amazing powerhouse that you are.  Your strength, grace and beauty will allow you to take care of business in a way that no other sign can.  Although Virgos don’t usually crave recognition, try to enjoy it as any compliments will be well deserved.


Libra

September 23 - October 23

August will likely be quite social for you with the Leo Sun lighting up your 11th house of friendship and community.  You could find yourself taking on a leadership role within a group or club and friends may express their appreciation for your ability to bring people together.  Your charisma and charm can help to rally others around a social cause that you feel passionately about.  It’s a great month to plan an event or host a party.

On August 6th, the Leo New Moon provides support for any goals you may have to improve your friendships or better your community.   If social activities have fallen by the wayside lately, you could decide that fun will be your top priority this month and schedule some get-togethers with friends.  This New Moon puts a special emphasis on children, so you may find yourself setting intentions to connect with any children in your life.  Or, it’s possible that your goals may involve championing on behalf of young people.

When Venus enters your Sun Sign on August 16th, your personal magnetism will be accentuated.  It won’t be surprising if you turn more heads than usual this month and it will be easier to persuade others to your way of thinking now.  You may feel inspired to get a hair or fashion makeover.  Go for it—any new look you’re drawn to now can enhance your natural good looks. 

It would be a great time to get some photographs taken as you’re likely to be looking your best!  When it comes to relationships, your inclination will be to keep the peace.  Just take care not to sacrifice too much of yourself in the name of compromise.

The Full Moon, in Aquarius, on August 20th can offer you some creative inspiration.  You may feel a sudden urge to pull out a paint set, get your hands in some clay or turn on the music and dance.  You can have a strong desire now to express your individuality through an artistic medium.  If attached, you could gain a new appreciation for your partner’s quirks and if single, you may find yourself drawn to someone quite different than yourself. 

Jupiter will be making a shift this month that can expand people’s sense of compassion while simultaneously challenging them to get out of their comfort zone.  Last month I mentioned the Grand Trine between Jupiter, Neptune and Saturn that is helping everyone make more of an emotional commitment to their dreams and manifest some big opportunities.  Between August 7th and 21st, Jupiter moves into a position that opposes Pluto and squares Uranus and the result will remind us all that the greatest gifts come with challenges attached.

This Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto interaction can point to difficulties balancing your energy between your career, your relationships, and your family.  While this is a common conundrum for many, the planets in action now may emphasize where you need to make changes.  Uranus in your 7th house of relationships will be rebelling against the status quo.  As Jupiter is bringing opportunities to your 10th house of career and public life, be  mindful of how any changes in your status can affect your partnerships and vice versa.

During this time, a partner can challenge you to face any fears about how you’re perceived by others.  If single, someone new can come into your life that encourages you to be true to yourself at almost any cost.  Meanwhile, you could be torn between what you want and things you’ve done out of obligation to family. 

The result can be an intense few weeks where you are feeling pulled in several directions.  Realize that the influence from a partner or family member is there to guide you, but the ultimate goal of this time period is to find your own way and emerge with a more solid sense of who you are.

When the Sun moves into Virgo and your 12th house on August 22nd, you’ll have the opportunity to continue soul searching.  While the past few weeks may have uncovered a lot of realizations, the next month can be helpful to sort through the information.  Try and plan some alone time for quiet contemplation.  The energy now can feel calmer allowing you to more easily connect with the spiritual side of yourself.  Take care not to be overly self-critical during this time of personal inventory.


Scorpio

October 23 - November 22

For most of August you may feel as if you’re coming out of your shell.  This can be a high profile time for you professionally and you could gain public recognition for an achievement.  Scorpios often work behind the scenes, wielding their power in ways that are only visible to the most perceptive people.  The Leo Sun in your 10th house now ensures that your amazing work ethic, diligence and integrity will not go unnoticed.  You could be offered a rewarding opportunity that makes the most of your skills.

If you’re looking to advance your career or elevate your public profile, the August 6th Leo New Moon will lend some support.  Now is a great time to write down goals that involve getting a promotion, changing careers or starting a business.  It’s also a powerful time to consider your life purpose and how you can use your unique aptitudes to better the lives of others.  Whether you are in the workforce or not, this New Moon can help you to see where your energies are best spent.  Set intentions now that ensure your valuable skills can make an impact. 

Venus enters Libra and your 12th house, on August 16th, which can add a sense of romance to your relationships.  Whether attached or single, for the next month you’re likely to be in love with the idea of love.  It can be a positive time for negotiations within relationships, as long as you take care not to overly idealize your partner.  If single, you could be more inclined to jump heart first into something new.  Should you meet someone during this time period, be sure to reassess your feelings after September 10 when Venus moves into your Sun Sign.

August 20th’s Full Moon, in Aquarius, brings a sense of innovation to your home and family life.  This energy is ideal for creative problem solving and working with group dynamics.  The emphasis will be on celebrating the unique differences that define those closest to you.  You can capitalize on this Full Moon to come up with new ideas to improve relations within your family and upgrade your living situation.  There’s an inventive vibe available that’s helpful for designing handy solutions around the house.

Jupiter will be making a shift this month that can expand people’s sense of compassion while simultaneously challenging them to get out of their comfort zone.  Last month I mentioned the Grand Trine between Jupiter, Neptune and Saturn that is helping everyone make more of an emotional commitment to their dreams and manifest some big opportunities.  Between August 7th and 21st, Jupiter moves into a position that opposes Pluto and squares Uranus and the result will remind us all that the greatest gifts come with challenges attached.

These Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto interaction accents themes of structure vs. freedom and can turn your notions of each upside down.  With Jupiter in your 9th house of adventure and travel, there will likely be some exciting opportunities calling to take you out of your normal routine.  However, Uranus comes in now to show that sometimes what appears to be the more mundane choice is actually the most radical.  In a sense, escaping your ordinary life may be the safer thing to do right now.  Take the opportunity these next few weeks to examine why Uranus wants you to look at your day to day operations.  

While the energy is in place for you to expand your horizons, this intervention of Uranian and Plutonian energy will help you to re-structure your foundation in preparation for bigger moves ahead.  Pluto will help you to get rid of unnecessary items or thought patterns that could be holding you back.  The work you do now around re-structuring your habits can be profound.  If you pay attention to the details of your life now, with an eye for renovation, you’ll be surprised at the results!

The Sun moves into Virgo and your 11th house on August 22nd and with that you may feel a strong urge to be of service to your community.  There could be opportunities now to give back to those in need and you have a lot to offer.  The month to follow will be great for nurturing your friendships and showing you care with small gestures.  Meaningful get-togethers, with a few close friends, will likely seem more appealing than large parties.

 

Sagittarius

November 22 - December 21

This month can have an air of excitement and adventure!  With the Sun in Leo shining in your 9th house, you’ll probably be feeling extra frisky.  Some of your favourite things in life are emphasized now—romance, drama, travel and taking chances.  However, you may feel more focused than usual and have the ability to stick with one or two choices among the varied opportunities that could arise.  Others will likely admire your courage and determination.

The August 6th New Moon, in Leo, is helpful to channel some of your new found passion.  Because Leo is a “fixed” sign, it can offer you the resolve needed to follow through on your goals.  Make the most of this bold energy to pick your top priorities and set a plan you can stick to.  Goals involving travel or higher education are especially supported. 

On August 16th, Venus enters Libra and your 11th house, putting a focus on friendships and community.  You’ll have the ability now to bring people together and facilitate collaboration.  It’s an excellent time to work for a social cause and bring about a greater understanding between opposing groups.  You may find that your skills of diplomacy are in high demand amongst your friends.  Make sure to schedule time for yourself as it could become tempting to spend all your time helping others! 

You could feel inspired to share some exciting new ideas verbally or in writing around August 20th, when the Full Moon in Aquarius brightens your 3rd house of communications.  Consider posting in a blog or telling your ideas to someone who can disseminate them.  It’s a time when you can realize the benefits of doing things differently than “the norm.”  Your courage to go against the grain can serve as a positive example to others.

Jupiter will be making a shift this month that can expand people’s sense of compassion while simultaneously challenging them to get out of their comfort zone.  Last month I mentioned the Grand Trine between Jupiter, Neptune and Saturn that is helping everyone make more of an emotional commitment to their dreams and manifest some big opportunities.  Between August 7th and 21st, Jupiter moves into a position that opposes Pluto and squares Uranus and the result will remind us all that the greatest gifts come with challenges attached.

For you, this Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto interaction has a lot to do with combining your energy and resources with others.  You could feel tensions now over shared finances and feel that you are not free to have the fun you’d like to be having.  The inclination to make conservative financial decisions for the sake of security can be strong for both yourself and another person who may share your resources.  However, during the next few weeks, you could feel restless and have the urge to cut loose from your responsibilities.

With Uranus in your 5th house of romance, there will be an emphasis on spicing up a current partnership or attracting an exciting new person into your life.  Themes now include breaking out of old routines and being willing to be emotionally vulnerable in order to deepen your intimacy with another person.  While the pull toward what is familiar and “safe” may feel strong, the energy being created now can help you to expand your capacity to give and receive love.  You can be available for more positive change by letting go of fixed ideas of how things “should” be done within your partnerships.

You could be recognized for your hard work when the Sun moves into Virgo and your 10th house on August 22nd.  Rather than celebrating one big accomplishment, it’s more likely that people will notice the cumulative effect of all your steady efforts.  You may also discover that you possess knowledge about healing and wellness that is valuable to others.  The next month is great for exploring careers in the healing arts or public positions that are of service to others.


Capricorn

December 21 - January 20

 
The first few weeks of August can be a powerful time for your creativity with the Leo Sun highlighting your 8th house of the subconscious.  While this may bring some hidden emotions or memories to the surface, you have the ability to transform them into an artistic expression.  It can be an ideal time to work with any difficult feelings – Leo’s energy brings a dose of humour and perspective that can help reduce fear.  On the flip side, there can be a tendency to over-dramatize, so take care that you aren’t blowing things out of proportion.

On August 6th, the New Moon, in Leo, will help you to re-energize your sense of intimacy and passion.  You can capitalize on this New Moon by making a list of some of your deepest desires.  It’s not a time to hold back or underestimate your abilities.  The way you allow yourself to shine is going to have a direct effect on how authentic you can be in a close relationship.  You can inspire a partner (or potential partner) with your zest for life and courage to go after what you want.   

Venus will enter Libra and your 10th house of career and public image on August 16th.  Your skills of diplomacy and negotiation can figure prominently and open doors for career advancement.  You’re likely to excel at moderating discussions; making important introductions and helping the people around you feel at ease. 

People may naturally turn to you for guidance and leadership because they value your judgement and sense of fairness.  Avoid any tendency to make decisions or give opinions based on what you think others want to hear.  Stick to the truth and trust that you’ll be able to tell it like it is with gentle grace.

Interesting financial opportunities may arise around August 20th, when the Full Moon, in Aquarius, passes through your 2nd house.  Freedom can feel like a priority now, so you may be drawn towards investments or jobs that don’t require a long term commitment.  You could become inspired to make money by doing your own thing—perhaps you’ve been thinking of going freelance or starting your own business?  This Full Moon is most supportive of innovative or unconventional ideas, especially those that have a humanitarian benefit. 

Jupiter will be making a shift this month that can expand people’s sense of compassion while simultaneously challenging them to get out of their comfort zone.  Last month I mentioned the Grand Trine between Jupiter, Neptune and Saturn that is helping everyone make more of an emotional commitment to their dreams and manifest some big opportunities.  Between August 7th and 21st, Jupiter moves into a position that opposes Pluto and squares Uranus and the result will remind us all that the greatest gifts come with challenges attached.

Your relationships will take centre stage during this Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto interaction.  As Jupiter moves into your 7th house of relationship, it could feel as if you want more in this area of your life.  The planets are at work to expand the energy you put towards your partnerships, friendships and community involvement.  However, in order to receive the maximum rewards, you’ll need to be open to change and the unknown.  The biggest transformation now may involve your home life and the more flexible you can be in this area, the better.

There can be a strong urge to hold on to the past that can limit your current relationships.  Capricorns don’t always like to change quickly, but the energy present now is going to urge you to pick up the pace.  But this doesn’t mean you have to spin out of control.  Like a race car driver, you’ll be able to handle any upcoming transitions with speed and precision.

When the Sun moves into Virgo and your 9th house on August 22nd, you may feel a strong connection to your values and how to express them in your daily life.  From now through late September, you may find yourself taking new risks, but they’re likely to be ones that have been well-planned.  You can gain a lot of comfort now in grounding routines, even when you are in unchartered territory.  There will be the potential to manifest goals involving travel and higher education.


Aquarius

January 20 - February 20

Romantic partnerships are in the spotlight this month!  The Leo Sun brings a sense of playfulness and creativity to your 7th house of relationship.  If single, this can be an opportune time to meet someone new and if you’re attached; your love life can receive a boost now.  Great spots for dates or meeting new people include art galleries, the theatre, concerts or parties.  You’ll likely to dazzle others now with your charm and talent.

The August 6th New Moon, in Leo, can help you attract positive energy into your partnerships.  If you want to rekindle a fresh sense of romance in an existing relationship or set the stage to meet someone who makes your heart pound, this New Moon will support your goals.  It can be helpful to write down the traits of the person you wish to meet or the feelings you hope to evoke in your current partnership.  Self-worth is also a big theme this New Moon.  Realize that efforts aimed toward raising your self-esteem will benefit current or future relationships.

Venus will enter Libra and your 9th house of travel and higher education on August 16th.  You may attract people of different cultural backgrounds and your ability to unify others will be heightened.  You’re likely to find opportunities for personal growth in all your interpersonal dealings over the next month.  Relationships can take on an adventurous spirit and for those who are single; it can feel like an independent and liberating time period.  Your taste in fashion, music and art may lean towards something new and exotic.

This month’s Full Moon, in your birth sign, on August 20th will accent your unique qualities.  Others will likely take notice of the special things that set you apart, such as your fierce independence, inventive ideas, noble ideals and quick mind.  Your emotions may be more transparent and at times it could feel intense.  Use your creativity to channel any discomfort into something productive. 

Jupiter will be making a shift this month that can expand people’s sense of compassion while simultaneously challenging them to get out of their comfort zone.  Last month I mentioned the Grand Trine between Jupiter, Neptune and Saturn that is helping everyone make more of an emotional commitment to their dreams and manifest some big opportunities.  Between August 7th and 21st, Jupiter moves into a position that opposes Pluto and squares Uranus and the result will remind us all that the greatest gifts come with challenges attached.

This Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto interaction will pose tension between practicality and spirituality.  “If you can dream it, you can achieve it,” is a good slogan for this time period.  But in reality, there will need to be a balance between unadulterated idealism and down-to-earth practicality.  You could run yourself ragged chasing every beautiful bubble-like idea that floats by.  Your motivation level is high, so it’s important to focus in on your top priorities and use your energy wisely.

Pluto in your 12th house of spirituality can be helpful now to encourage thoughtful alone time.  Through quiet contemplation, you can notice what feels right to you without the distraction of outside influences.  The other major planets affecting you now are housed in busy, public areas of your birth chart.  This can keep you on a treadmill of “to do” lists with the added pressure of an audience.  Taking time to jump out of the rat race will help you re-balance, refocus, and hone in on your true desires with laser-like precision.

On August 22nd, the Sun will move into Virgo and your 8th house.  This can indicate a time for some emotional housekeeping.  Virgo’s energy likes to purify its surroundings, and this can be helpful when working with the subconscious and healing emotional wounds.  The next few weeks may have a more introverted feel for you, but given all that’s been going on with the Grand Trine plus Uranus and Pluto; this can be a good thing.  Make the most of the efficient and effective energies available to work on making inner transformations.

 

Pisces

February 20 - March 21

 

Your day-to-day routines could get a refresh this month thanks to the creative energy of the Leo Sun in your 6th house of health, wellness and daily work.  Seek out fitness programs that have an element of playful fun such as dance or non-competitive sports.  Where you’ll really shine this month is in the unique way that you attend to important details.  Others can become inspired by the way you can take joy in small, essential tasks.

The August 6th New Moon, in Leo, will be valuable to help you set action steps for your goals.  Pisceans are known for their visionary abilities to see the big picture, but sometimes the details elude or bore them.  Not only will you have the patience to carefully map out some of your future plans, you’re also likely to get excited about it!  Use this New Moon to get specific about something you’d like to accomplish and exactly what it will take to get there.

When Venus enters Libra and your 8th house of the subconscious on August 16th, you may feel especially passionate about a love relationship.  If single, others are likely to be drawn towards your intensity and sense of intrigue (if they can handle this potent energy).  If attached, you may feel more ardently than ever about your partnership and seek ways to deepen your connection. 

You’re strong and sometimes hidden emotions can be rising to the surface now.   However, the energy of Venus in Libra may cause you to censor yourself for fear of a negative reaction from others.  Strive for authentic and compassionate expression.  Even if it means a potential conflict, trust that loving honesty will strengthen your connections far more than politely avoiding your real feelings.

On August 20th, the Full Moon, in Aquarius, highlights your 12th house of spirituality.  You could feel a strong urge for alone time.  The timing is perfect, since Venus in your 8th house likely has you unearthing some buried psychological material.  Contemplation and a connection to a higher power can be especially helpful to navigate any difficult feelings that may be uncovered.  The Aquarian energy of this month’s Full Moon is especially useful for getting a detached perspective. 

Jupiter will be making a shift this month that can expand people’s sense of compassion while simultaneously challenging them to get out of their comfort zone.  Last month I mentioned the Grand Trine between Jupiter, Neptune and Saturn that is helping everyone make more of an emotional commitment to their dreams and manifest some big opportunities.  Between August 7th and 21st, Jupiter moves into a position that opposes Pluto and squares Uranus and the result will remind us all that the greatest gifts come with challenges attached.

This Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto interaction can help to catapult you towards greater self-expression.  While Jupiter is bringing opportunity to your 5th house of creativity, you may be inclined to play it safe.  It’s not to say you’re not taking advantage of what comes along, but you might feel compelled to hide a bit of yourself for the sake of security.  Creativity can feel like a risk, especially if you’re planning to share your work with the public. 

Even if you don’t consider yourself an “artist,” know that there is something creative you bring to your interactions each time you express your uniqueness—it could be the way you dress, special touches in your correspondence or how you solve problems.  When Uranus enters the mix, you could find yourself thrust into the spotlight by forces outside of your control.  Or, there may be financial or material rewards so compelling that they encourage you to overcome your fears of being vulnerable to allow your creativity shine out!

You’ll have the chance to do some nurturing “clean up” in your relationships when the Sun moves into Virgo and your 7th house on August 22nd.  If life has been sweeping you along lately, the next few weeks will be a great time to slow down a bit and focus in on the needs of yourself and a significant other.  Romantic partnerships, friendships and business partnerships can all benefit from this energy that promotes mutual caretaking.  Take the time to ask each other questions and then take joy in serving each other.
