As the month begins, your ruling planet Mars is in action. Mars is in Taurus and your personal money sector where it remains until August 20th. Things are lively in this sector of your horoscope as the planet of change Uranus is here too.
On the 1st/2nd, Mars and Uranus make a powerful conjunction aligned with the karmic north node in Taurus. The wheel of fortune is turning and this could bring some surprises your way. It may be a time of highs or lows regarding money. There’s a theme of ‘what you reap you sow’.
Taurus not only rules money, also what you value and your sense of self-worth. There’s a theme of the new, whether this means updating your financial situation, learning about new money methods or adopting a different attitude to money & earnings.
The Mars-Uranus combination can be explosive and it’s not the best time to be overly impulsive. Yet, freedom beckons in some shape or form. And, there are times in life when you have to be all in to win.
Uranus turns direct in Taurus on the 24th, another date that could be pivotal for money matters and signal a change in fortune.
This whole month brings fizz and excitement to your money sector. It’s not a time for holding on tight. Instead, reinvent your finances, use technology to your advantage, go viral on TikTok. Whatever’s right for you, be fully invested in your next steps.
Aquarius Full Moon
The Full Moon in Aquarius takes place on the 12th and is super important this month. Aquarius rules friends & groups, your role within society & politics. This is the sector of your birth chart which represents your hopes & wishes. Full Moons are ideal for celebration and getting together with friends or your community.
Your planet Mars is active during the Full Moon alongside rebel planet Uranus. This could trigger your activist nature. You may become involved in a protest or alternative movement emphasised by the radical Saturn-Uranus clash that’s once again within orb until the end of the year. The Saturn-Uranus square dominated 2021 – rules versus liberty.
Mid-month is a time to rejoice, also to make your mark. Yet, there are times throughout August when the angry, defiant side of your nature could kick in.
In particular, the 1st, 7th, 12th & 27th, when you may be in disagreement with friends or be standing on the other side of group-think or the general consensus. At the very least this month, you need a constructive outlet for your passion & energy.
It’s an intriguing month in some respects as it feels lucky for you but volatile too. There’s a lovely Venus-Jupiter trine aspect on the 18th which promises good fortune. The best planet Jupiter’s currently in your star sign Aries, so look out for the person who lights up your life on or around this date. It’s a promising symbol for new love.
This month is about your social connections too and stepping in to help celebrate other people’s wins. Or, perhaps you’re the one sharing your spoils with the ones you love.
Mars In Gemini
It’s important to talk about your ruling planet Mars. Mars is a big player throughout August which means you’re likely to be at the forefront of action.
On the 20th, Mars enters Gemini, the sign of communication. This is a significant shift of Mars as Mars will remain in Gemini until March 2023. This is because there will be a Mars retrograde phase in the last two months of 2022. Therefore, it’s important to know where Mars is going to be in your horoscope for the next seven months.
Gemini is your communication sector and rules transport, siblings and neighbours. You’re likely to be busy, whether you’re commuting more than usual or you have various meetings and get-togethers taking place locally.
You may benefit from playing a key role within your local community, making new friends and contacts. Ensure networking and socialising are your top goals – on and off-line.
Mars in Gemini is a lively combination that flags up the importance of ‘people power’. Get on the right side of people who matter and you can make quick progress.
Be aware, however, that Mars in Gemini can signify a war of words. Be thoughtful around communication as what you say or write could be used against you.
All forms of learning are recommended now, whether you go back to school, learn a language, take a new qualification or sign up for a course. This would be a good time to work towards a test, sit an important exam, start a podcast or blog.
Romance In The Sun
Alternatively, you could champion love this month and unleash your passionate nature in other ways. The Sun is in Leo and your romance sector until the 23rd and is joined by love planet Venus on the 11th. Therefore, this is a great month for schmoozing, mating and dating.
The 3rd and 18th are both lovely for a date or special occasion. You may choose to spend quality time with your kids or put play and entertainment high up your list of priorities. Fire sign energy is strong this month which is good news for you, as it’s motivated, spontaneous and fun.
Home, Health & Routine
Finally, the planet of relating Venus is in Cancer and your home and family sector until the 11th. Be there for loved ones and notice who plays a supportive role in your life. You might be redecorating or making your home or garden look beautiful. Venus in Cancer favours harmony and beauty in equal measure.
There is a ‘back to work’ vibe throughout August too, as talk planet Mercury is in industrious Virgo from the 4th to the 26th and the Sun enters Virgo on the 23rd. Grab your pleasurable moments while you can this month and take time out or go on trips while the Sun basks in Leo.
Virgo time benefits from a regular routine and attention to your health and fitness. You could find additional support for any competitive situation you find yourself in. Take advice from your sensible workmates or colleagues this month and rein in your Aries’ mode of attack.
The New Moon in Virgo on the 27th is ideal to turn a new page, get more organised and apply for a new job or start a new health routine.
