AugustHoroscopes from International astrologer, William Duvendack!
Aries (Spring Equinox-approx. April 21st)
Aries (Spring Equinox-approx. April 21st): Even though you may be riding a second wind and feeling optimistic, you may find that there are communication challenges that await you at the beginning of the month, so it would be wise to keep yourself in check with them for the first week and a half. Money may be flowing easily to you right now, and you may find your personal relationships are positive overall. As the month progresses, you may find that the communication challenges subside, but that there are now challenges when it comes to money, especially tied to the house and immediate family. You may find one of the best ways to approach the latter half of the month is through a focus on spirituality, ethics, and morality. For the whole month, you may also find it wise to give extra time to things, to avoid accidents and consequences of short-tempers.
Taurus (Approx. April 21st to approx. May 21st)
Taurus (Approx. April 21st to approx. May 21st): Overall challenges and irritations may be common as the month starts, but your communication and adaptability is on point, so you may find if you roll with the punches, everything goes fine. The workplace continues to be a major focal point for building in general, and you may find that right now your intuition is sharper than normal there, and that the moves you make right now will produce long term growth. As the month moves on, you may find that things level out, settle down, and may even put money in your pocket from people you are closed to. More emphasis is placed on the workplace, but additionally you may find the theme is talking to the people you know there, to advance your goals.
Gemini (Approx. May 21st to Summer Solstice)
Gemini (Approx. May 21st to Summer Solstice): Love, money, friendship, and combinations having to do with those three topics, may be the major themes of the first half of the month, and all in positive ways, so it would be wise to enter August optimistically, and maximize your gain in those areas. You may also find good fortune comes your way, and that you get some lucky breaks. However, live it up while you can, because as August progresses, you may find things change for the more challenging. You may find challenges when it comes to personal communication, especially through the workplace, are more common than not, so it would be wise to address them. You may also find it wise to pay attention to your health more than normal, as it might be a little more fragile than normal.
Cancer (Summer Solstice to approx. July 21st)
Cancer (Summer Solstice to approx. July 21st): Communication and adaptability are the two prominent themes when August begins, especially as when it comes to your close family members and loved ones, so it would be wise to do what you can with it. Your emotions may be tense, and it may be wise to play things conservatively in your workplace and career, but otherwise, you may find another theme is that of making a lot of small adjustments, meaning it is not a good time to be stubborn. As August moves forward, you may find things smooth out quite a bit, and while you may be emotionally out of sorts, the workplace, health, family, and money in general may all be going well. One thing to keep in mind for the whole month, though, is that your temper may be shorter overall, and you may be more accident prone if you’re not careful.
Leo (Approx. July 21st to approx. August 21st)
Leo (Approx. July 21st to approx. August 21st): Happy birthday, Leos! This is your month to shine, and to indulge in the things that make you happy and lift your spirits. Money and personal relationships may be moving along nice and smoothly, and you have more than enough energy to get done the things you need to in order to move ahead into the final part of the year. As August moves forward though, you may find it wise to make the minor adjustments necessary to keep the peace and enjoy time with your loved ones. Your emotions may be smooth at this time as well, and you may find your diplomacy skills are stronger than normal. However, for the whole of the month it would be wise to stick with the tried and true, rather than working with the innovative and unique, as conformity may profit you more than rebellion.
Virgo (Approx. August 21st to Autumnal Equinox)
Virgo (Approx. August 21st to Autumnal Equinox): The home life and immediate family may be going along good now, which frees up your energy to focus on the professional life goals. However, money may also be tight right now, and relationships with friends may be tense, too. The good news is that it will pass quickly. As August moves forward into your sign, you may find it a good time to do some inner healing and make some inner changes you have been desiring to do for a while now. You may also find your communication challenges from earlier in the month quiet down, and now the emphasis becomes your daily work life, as well as taking care of your health. Your money and close relationships with your loved ones may also smooth out, thereby giving you the extra energy to focus on the inner changes and healing that need to be addressed.
Libra (Autumnal Equinox to approx. October 21st)
Libra (Autumnal Equinox to approx. October 21st): Communication challenges, especially with close family members and loved ones may be the theme of the first few days of August, but this will pass quickly, and part of this has to do with your emotions being out of sorts, so consider this a head’s up. On the positive side though, you may find your money is rolling along nice and well, and that you are on a good luck streak, and optimism abounds. You may also find you are more accident prone than normal if you are distracted, and your temper may be shorter, too. As the month progresses though, in general things will quiet down and even out. The challenges with money around the house and your loved ones may still be there, but in general things will stay tense, although not negative.
Scorpio (Approx. October 21st to approx. November 21st)
Scorpio (Approx. October 21st to approx. November 21st): The first part of the month may start off with tensions and challenges, especially when it comes to ego contests and stubbornness, but your communication is on point, so you may find it wise to speak before you think to avoid unnecessary conflicts. The career may be rolling along nicely though, and now is a great time to put your energy into where you are professionally going. As August moves forward, you may find that things quiet down substantially, and that the month goes along nicely. For the duration though, it would be wise to pay attention to your energy, temper, and potential accidents, due to Mars in Aries.
Sagittarius (Approx. November 21st to Winter Solstice)
Sagittarius (Approx. November 21st to Winter Solstice): Optimism, high energy, and activity may be the themes for the beginning of the month, and while all of those are well and good, you may find it wise to spend cautiously, and to be careful spending money when with friends. There may also be challenges when it comes to those friendly relationships, too, so it would be wise to stay emotionally detached. As August marches forward, you may find that the financial situation improves, the emotions improve, and the energy and optimism is there, but now new challenges have come up, which are associated with the workplace, communication regarding it, and the people you interact with on a daily basis, so it would be wise to do what you can with it as you see it. Your diplomacy game is strong though, so things should be fine.
Capricorn (Winter Solstice to approx. January 21st)
Capricorn (Winter Solstice to approx. January 21st): Tense communication in the family unit may be how August starts off, so it would be wise to exercise self-control and compassion when chatting with your immediate family. You may also find it wise to give your workplace more time and energy, but that is because the potential is there for big time rewards. As August moves forward, you may find things calm down extensively, but instead of communication challenges with the immediate family and in the home life, the new theme is tension over money in the home life and with the immediate family. At least your communication skills are sharp enough to handle this now. Also of particular note is that your emotions may be out of sorts, too, trying to please everyone, but this will pass quickly around the middle of the month, so when you spot it, detach and let it go.
Aquarius (Approx. January 21st to approx. February 21st)
Aquarius (Approx. January 21st to approx. February 21st): While tension may be the name of the game for the first two weeks of August, you may find it is not as bad as it could be, or as it has been in the past. Money and personal friendships may be rolling along smoothly right now, and your energy may be limitless. However, there may be challenges that come up if you try to rebel too much, or if you try to exhibit too much individuality, so it would be wise to stay low-key through the middle of August. In the middle of the month, you may find that the tension in the air goes away, and you are left with a lot of good influences in general. Seizing opportunities may be something to emphasize for the last half of August, but when seized, you may find they lead to long-term gain.
Pisces (Approx. February 21st to Spring Equinox)
Pisces (Approx. February 21st to Spring Equinox): Money through friendships, and the friendships themselves, may be challenges at the beginning of the month, but to counterbalance these things, there are a lot of good things happening regarding the career, your personal resources, and most things related to the physical plane, so it would be wise to put your energy there, rather than on things you can’t control. You may also find your intuition is sharper than normal, and that if you go with your gut, you will zag when you should. As August progresses, you may find the air in your job changes to one of tension, especially having to do with communication and adaptability. One of the ways to work with this is to shift your attention back to your social circles and close loved ones, for those relationships will be rolling smoothly at this time. You may also find it wise to focus on building up your nest egg.
