August Monthly Horoscope


Leo (July 24- August 23)

Happy birth-month Leo! This month’s Mercury retrograde will have you reflecting on your past and your judgement may be a bit hazy. Use the next few weeks to really think about how you communicate to avoid misunderstandings between those who are close to you. It may feel like all the forces are against you, but try to keep your charged emotions in check while planets are in backspin mode. Your determination and hard work will help you navigate over any hurdles you need to jump.

Virgo (August 24 - September 23)

Venus, the planet of love, is facing off with Neptune in your personal circle this month. You’ve been preoccupied with work and responsibilities, and now is the time to reconnect with your loved ones on an authentic spiritual and creative level. When Mercury goes retrograde, you will be looking inward and reflecting on the past, thinking about old feelings, and being open to forgiving someone. The lunar eclipse will have you busier than ever, particularly in creative endeavors and your love life!

Libra (September 24 - October 23)

Your ruling planet, Venus goes head to head with Neptune, making it challenging to maintain healthy boundaries. Try not to get involved in friend quarrels if you don’t have to. With Mercury swinging into your network zone, it’d be best to avoid gossip to prevent being misunderstood. Hang tight until the end of the month, when tensions will loosen and perhaps lead to blossoming romance!

Scorpio (October 24 - November 22)

Love is in the air for you, dear Scorpio! Venus and Neptune’s alignment mean warm, fuzzy feelings for a special someone. But don’t be fooled by
rose-colored glasses! Take things slow and make sure any romantic bond has an undercurrent of authenticity rather than illusion. Mercury is also going rogue early this month so be mindful of communication when speaking to friends and colleagues. Taking the time to set clear goals now will ensure you’re getting your point across without things getting misconstrued.

Sagittarius (November 23 - December 21)

This month’s Venus-Neptune opposition has you feeling a bit confused. Your creative work and excellent social skills are casting you in a positive light, but your ambitions may not be delivering what you’ve been planning for. Allow yourself to see all that you’ve accomplished so far! Part of the satisfaction is enjoying the journey along the way, so it would be worth revisiting your experiences when Mercury goes retrograde. Venus’s chemistry with Pluto later this month, will bring your perspective back on the right track.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 20)

The Venus and Neptune alignment will have you in a fog this month. You might be experiencing some tension with a partner that may lead you to pursuing your own interests and securing what you need for yourself. All while this is happening, Mars in retrograde will make it a bit difficult to focus. Remember to listen to others, but also stand for what you believe is right. This is an appropriate period to find balance in your life. Venus’s interaction with Pluto will give you a much-needed confidence boost, encouraging you to do more of what the world has to offer. Aquarius (January 21 - February 19)

You’ve craving for closeness has you a bit more emotional lately. The Venus and Neptune alignment in your worth zone has you a bit more vulnerable than usual which can disrupt your relationships. Try not to get defensive, but find a way to compromise. Aquarius will be hosting a lunar eclipse, which will be a good time for you to cleanse things (or people) that may not be adding value to your life. Express your opinion and be direct to get your point across.

Pisces (February 20 - March 20)

Venus and Neptune have you caught in a mix of smoke and mirrors, leaving you a bit confused lately. As a result, you may be sending the wrong signals, making it hard for people to understand you clearly- so self-awareness is key. With Mercury in retrograde, miscommunication with friends or coworkers could become a problem in the next few weeks. Be careful not to overstep your boundaries or be too critical in your opinion. It’s a good time to get creative and learn a new skill, review your daily routine, or reconnect with old friends. A Venus-Pluto mashup can bring old feelings to the surface, so now is the golden opportunity to finally let go of an emotional hold you’ve had over someone.

Aries (March 21 - April 20)

If you’ve been feeling creative, productive, or working on a relationship with someone, the Venus- Neptune opposition could cause you to put a halt to things for a moment. The sun is at odds with your ruler, Mars, which can cause individual goals to get in the way of teamwork pursuits. After Mercury reverses its course, you may have trouble communicating with your significant other or you may reconnect with an old flame. This is a great time to revise a creative project, rediscover a past hobby, and reassess what fulfills you. A reunion between Venus and Pluto indicates your hard work will pay off in the long run!

Taurus (April 21 - May 21)

You’re in the mood to enjoy life, but Venus’s conflict with Neptune could throw you for a loop, causing you to have some conflicts with friends. There’s nothing that a girl’s night out can’t fix though! The sun squaring off with Uranus will have you feeling restless and you seem to have a need to assert your independence. This is a great time for you to assess your goals in life and re-evaluate whether certain people are on the same wavelength as you. The people that know you well will stand by your side. Change is a good thing, Taurus!

Gemini (May 22- June 21)

The Venus and Pluto entanglement this month will have your mind wandering aimlessly. You might be happy with socializing with friends and not terribly
motivated to get work done. Try to get organized and reassess your goals so you’ll be ready when your ruling planet turns retrograde this month. Expect some glitches in short trips and commutes, or written communication. A lunar eclipse will also provide an opportunity for improvement in your income, debt, and self-esteem. Changing your relationship with these things will have a drastic effect on your life for the better. You deserve it!

Cancer (June 22 - July 23)

Your judgement will be a bit muddled this month due to Venus in opposition with Neptune. Don’t make any rash decisions, especially, with money, values, and possessions. The sun’s battles with Mars and uranus will cause you to be more independent, and wanting to reflect inward on past decisions. You will want more freedom and space to roam so maybe think about planning a relaxing vacation before summer’s over. On the heels of a lunar eclipse happening this month, you will get a chance to enjoy a deeper bond with someone you have a powerful connection with!
