August sees two incredibly powerful eclipses that are going to have a huge impact on you over the next six months, but in a very positive way, Aries. This can see new alliances be forged, wonderful friendships and even the potential for a rebirth around your romantic relationship desires. However, with Mercury travelling backwards from the 13th, there is the potential for slight misunderstandings, and especially around things like appointments. Do make sure you stay very clearly abreast of these.
Home is where the heart is this month Taurus, certainly in its first two thirds. However, this may also see you playing the role of host and enjoying the responsibility. Your ability to understand what others enjoy can make a gathering a real success. Worldly demands may compete for another part of your nature that could crave for a quieter time, but from the 23rd, you're going to feel much more outgoing again, and also a long-term financial issue can start to ease for you positively.
This has the potential to be a very special month for you Gemini, but it's all about you believing that you can actualize your hopes and dreams. Once you do, there is so much to go for. True, you may find it really quite hard to resist sugary treats, but the more sensual and pleasurable parts of life can really sparkle for you. But it's going to be your personality which really captures people's imagination. Mind, around communications linked to a family gathering or close tie, take extra care from mid-month.
The eclipses this month are going to concentrate your thinking around anything to do with what you share closely with others. There can be good fortune in this part of life, but it is going to require a large degree of co-operation. Also, being open minded and flexible is going to help out your progress. We are all going to be influenced by Mercury's retrograde from mid month, but the key for you is around communications. If you make any arrangements double-check everyone else has the same understanding.
Despite your charismatic reputation and your penchant for leadership, you are someone who often likes a degree of familiarity in your life which can see you sticking rather than twisting. Whilst this adds many positive strands to your existence, is there something that really is due for a major shakeup? If so, this can be the month when you really get cracking to make it happen. A quite outstanding Leo Solar Eclipse on the 21st, is your chance to supercharge your keenest hopes and be single minded.
Your ruler spends the whole of this month in your zodiac sign, and this can help you to think of new beginnings or to invest in your more individualistic ideas. Ironically, another set of energies pushes you to clear up any old strands. With Mercury backtracking from the 13th, not everything will necessarily go exactly to plan. But once the Sun arrives in your zodiac sign on the 23rd and Saturn goes forwards on the 25th, despite some stops and starts, overall you can start to make significant progress.
You may have become rather accustomed to feeling unsettled around all your closest relationships. There could be more of this, this August but it can work for you in a very positive way. This is especially so if you can step outside your comfort zone and network and link with others at every turn. Your long-term prospects come under especially positive stars, so do embrace this opportunity to really drive forwards all of your highest hopes. The sky really can be the limit for you, Libra.
The planet of freedom Uranus, heads into a five and a half month retrograde on the 3rd of the month. This can concentrate your thinking about work and lifestyle organisation and particularly if you feel your style has been cramped. In fact, this can be a very important month as far as your worldly involvements are concerned. Whatever ambitions you have they can take on greater energy, and this could also see you pushing forwards towards your goals with a lot more confidence and drive. In short, go for it.
Your love of freedom and space is deeply entrenched within your nature, yet over the last couple of years you have probably realized that it is not always possible to have this without also having a degree of stability and security at the root of your life. Some interests, activities or even people may have left your situation, but now you can find yourself ready to embrace a more expansive lifestyle, once more. If you're travelling this month, your timing is absolutely perfect. An exotic location can excite.
Someone close to you could be very changeable in their outlook. There could even be some comings and goings in your home. The Lunar Eclipse on the 7th however, forges a fabulous angle with the expansive energies of Jupiter, and this can be excellent as far as your financial situation is concerned and career hopes, not just this month but through to the end of the year. You may also find yourself planning home changes, such as renovations or even considering moving altogether.
August gives you a wonderful burst of new energy which can increase your self-confidence, and also can see someone new and very important entering your orbit. This could be around a friendship, but equally it can be around a love relationship. If it is romance you're looking for, someone who has a very broad view of life can captivate most. However, with Mercury tracking backwards from mid month, business and financial dealings will need to be micromanaged to avoid any glitches.
The Lunar Eclipse of the 7th could see an issue you've been subconsciously avoiding vying for your attention. By the time of the Solar Eclipse of the 21st, all of this will be out in the open and you will be formulating the ways in which you can make this situation work better for you. This can be an excellent month to embrace any kind of healing or spiritual dimension, or to consider how you can get physically fitter. Do keep the lines of communication open around close relationships, however.
