Community & Connections
Your ruling planet Mars is moving through earth sign Virgo all month. Mars isn’t the only planet in Virgo either. The planet of relating Venus is here until the 16th and talk planet Mercury from the 11th to the 30th. Plus, the Sun enters Virgo on the 22nd. It’s a lively sector of your horoscope.
Virgo rules your friends and group activities, your social, political and humanitarian alliances. It’s about your community and how you fit in to the world.
When earth signs dominate, this is about people and connections for you. If you’re a typical Scorpio, you may favour your own company but August is calling you out back into the world.
If you want to improve your social life, it’s a good month to launch yourself into new activities. Reach out, connect and recharge your friendships. It’s a top month to get involved in your local community or find a way to help others and make a difference.
Traditionally, August is Leo season and the Sun is in Leo until the 22nd. Talk planet Mercury is here too until the 11th.
Therefore, this remains a go-for it period when it comes to your career, your status and reputation, your future path. The Sun shines bright in Leo and this can bring acclaim, recognition or an award.
One of the key dates is the 8th when there’s a New Moon in Leo, a symbol of new beginnings. This could coincide with a significant turning point.
You could choose to invest in a programme that helps to boost your profile. You may have publicity photos taken so you’re seen in a new light. You might be lining up new ideas for your future security and be considering where to invest your money and why.
The Full Moon on the 22nd is important in this respect as it cuts across the Leo/Aquarius axis of the zodiac and highlights your foundations.
This is the second of two Full Moons in Aquarius – the first took place on July 24th and this month’s Full Moon may flag up a repeat theme or see you coming full circle.
This Full Moon pulls in lucky Jupiter now back in Aquarius and your home and family sector. Get your foundations sorted and strengthen the base of your life and your career could flourish. Use the Full Moon energy to make clear decisions when it comes to your home and work.
The area of change in your life involves your relationships which look more unsettled or unpredictable at times. This is because you currently have the planet of change Uranus in Taurus and your relationship sector.
Uranus is especially lively the first week of August leading up to the New Moon on the 8th. Also, when it switches direction on the 20th.
Not all your relationships are likely to be steady or secure and this is both personal and professional. Alternatively, you might be the one who craves more independence or freedom.
Notice who’s moving away or you’re moving away from. Also, who comes into your life promising loyalty, security or a good deal. There are two types of partnership with different agendas. Events close to the New Moon and the Full Moon this month could prove pivotal.
Learn to delegate, outsource what you do, find a VA or PA and work alongside other people. Recognise that partnerships are not only full of surprises but your best route to success as well.
Restoration & Well-being
Finally on the 16th, Venus moves into Libra and the most hidden sector of your horoscope. This brings with it a chance to restore balance and harmony in your life. Look after yourself well in mind, body and spirit. Seek balance and harmony within you.
