Fire Sign Adventures
Up until the 22nd of August, the Sun is in your fellow fire sign, Leo. Leo rules travel and study in your horoscope. It’s wherever in life you expand your horizons, dream big and yearn to learn and experience more.
The Sun’s move through Leo could bring out the hedonistic side of your character. You want to play and live life to the full. Talk planet, Mercury, is also in Leo from the 5th to the 20th so catch up with people who inspire you and plan some adventures together.
Travel may be possible and, if it is for you, it is a good time to go somewhere new for a change of perspective. This is the time of year to fire some Sagittarius arrows high into the air and see where they land. Plan ahead and look to 2021.
The best date for setting your intentions for the future is the 19th, when there’s a glorious New Moon in Leo, a symbol of new beginnings. This is a good date to go on a trip, to learn something new and ring the changes. The 16th/17th also looks dynamic and fun – a great time to be fearless.
The Full Moon on the 3rd also highlights the travel and study sectors of your horoscope, cutting across the Leo/Aquarius of the zodiac. Full Moons can be a time of illumination, enlightenment and insight. Matters come to completion or culmination on the Full Moon.
This Full Moon is great for last-minute decisions as both the Sun and Moon are square to the planet of spontaneity, Uranus.
Admittedly, this could mean that some of your best-laid plans have to change and fast. Yet, it’s exciting planetary energy so be flexible and adaptable and try and take advantage of new ideas or opportunities that come in.
Work, Money & Freedom
Uranus is a key planet this month as it turns retrograde on the 15th. Uranus is currently in Taurus and your work and health sector. You may be taking the month off.
Or, be keen to work part-time or freelance. Uranus is linked to freedom and space and it’s going to be hard work if you feel hemmed in.
Money remains an important factor although some financial ties may have finally been cut. There was a big shift financially at the end of July and you’re entering into a new phase.
Yet, the big three including your ruling planet, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto remain in Capricorn and your personal money sector. Perhaps you’re raking it in this year.
Alternatively, you could be dealing with debt or loss of income. Either way, you can expect significant shifts when it comes to money matters.
This month these three planets clash with Mars on the 4th, 13th and 24th. This is an ongoing theme throughout August. Mars is currently in another fire sign, Aries, ruling children and lovers in your horoscope. Also, pleasure and entertainment.
Not being able to afford the things you want to do could leave you feeling frustrated. Or, perhaps there’s an ongoing clash with a child or lover as you disagree over spending or money management. This is a heated planetary conflict, so notice where in your life you’re being called to do battle and do it well.
Love & Money
There is a softer influence with regard to money and emotional ties and this is thanks to Venus, the planet of relating. Venus enters Cancer and your joint finance sector on the 7th where it remains all month.
Sometimes, this means you receive a gift or bonus. Or, perhaps you’re the one who’s feeling flush and you want to treat someone close. Love & money matters are closely linked throughout August.
Back To Work
Things turn serious – in a good way – from the 22nd onwards. This is the date when the Sun joins communication planet Mercury in Virgo and your career and vocation sector. There’s a back-to-work vibe when this combination kicks in and you can get a lot done.
If you’re on a break away in August, try and get back for the last week. Or, ensure that come September you’re ready to put some time and energy into your working life and your daily routine.
Your planet Jupiter is in action during the last week of the month as it teams up with Venus on the 25th and Mercury on the 29th. Get your cosmic ducks in order and play big.
You could land a good job, gain a salary boost or simply feel more enthusiastic about work, money and creating strong and stable foundations in your life.
