This is Leo season, your birthday month and the Sun remains in your star sign until the 22nd. Talk planet Mercury is here too up until the 11th.
The first week of the month, however, could be challenging, as your ruler the Sun clashes with Saturn and Uranus, your partner planets. You might be up against opposition at work or find that other people are stopping you achieving what you want.
New Moon Leo
This is a good month to develop a positive attitude in life and make the most of whatever comes your way. The New Moon in Leo on the 8th is a sign to put any challenges behind you and start over. It’s a symbol of new beginnings and a reminder to put yourself first, whatever else is going on.
New Moons are a promising time to set your intentions, launch something new and be pro-active. This New Moon is particularly powerful for you as it’s your annual New Moon. Therefore, use the New Moon energy to plan ahead, not only for August but the coming year as well.
When key planets are in Leo, the emphasis is on you, your personal goals and aims. It’s about your image and profile, how other people see you and your physical well-being.
Full Moon Aquarius
The second lunation in the month is the Full Moon in Aquarius and your opposite star sign on the 22nd. This is a repeat of the Full Moon that fell on July 24th highlighting the relationship axis of your horoscope.
Full Moons bring matters to completion and they shine a light on your situation or reveal more. This Full Moon pulls in lucky Jupiter which is back in your relationship sector. It symbolises a turning point in the month, especially if one relationship or partnership in your life has been out of sorts.
It’s a good Full Moon to celebrate love and to balance your head and heart when making a relationship decision or signing a contract. Notice who’s on your side on or around this Full Moon as this person is likely to be a good influence.
Change Of Gear
There may be some changes this month that you weren’t expecting, thanks to the planet of unpredictability, Uranus. Uranus is currently in Taurus and your career and vocation sector.
Uranus is lively leading up to the New Moon on the 8th. Then, on the 20th, Uranus switches direction.
Plans may change suddenly this month and this could be connected to what’s happening with a partner, either personal or professional. Keep your options open, be flexible and be aware that some things are out of your control.
Money is under the cosmic spotlight this month too and this is where you could make significant progress.
Action planet Mars is in Virgo and your money sector all month, the planet of relating Venus is here until the 16th, talk planet Mercury’s in Virgo from the 11th to the 30th and, most importantly, your ruler the Sun enters Virgo on the 22nd.
There’s some key action with Uranus in Taurus this month in a good way. The dates to note are the 3rd, 20th and 22nd. Act fast and you could turn work and money matters to your advantage on or around these dates.
At the very least, get your finances in order this month and consider investing in a venture that’s innovative, new age or linked to technology. Expert advice could be expensive but worth it in the long run.
Virgo rules your personal money, your possessions, also your values and self-worth. It’s about how you support yourself financially but also flags up where your money goes and what you do with it.
This would be a good time to think about how you trade your time for money, the ways you make money and how you can use your money to be of service to others.
It’s an important month to consider what you do with your time, whether you use it effectively, whether you’re overly busy or unemployed. Whenever you feel out of control, rein things in, slow things down and return to gratitude for what you have.
Keep It Calm
Lovely Venus enters Libra on the 16th. Libra rules communication and community in your horoscope. It’s about making new connections and getting the right people on your side.
Once Venus in Libra, this enhances your sales and marketing skills, your ability to use the written and spoken word to make swift progress.
Balance and harmony are key Libra traits so seek ease and comfort in your close relationships, personal and professional.
Conflict and aggression will be a no-no, a turn off in the second half of the month. You may naturally find yourself veering towards the people in your life who calm you and ground you.
